A meeting of the Philosophical Society was held on Monday evening


Afterwards a communication was also read from C. Darwin, Esq., containing a notice that certain animals (lizards, &c.) which are oviparous in certain districts of South America, as they are in this country, are viviparous in the province of Mendoza, which he visited. Mr. Darwin also gave an account of red snow observed by him in the road from St. Jago de Chili to Mendoza by the Portello Pass, and of a microscopical examination of the substance.
