currency, in consequence of over-coinage,” is the same as printed in the second part of the Society's Transactions, p. 255, just published. Amongst the most striking subjects of these extracts, are the following :-“ Malversations in office.” “ On the Emperor's putting off his journey to Tartary."

“ Forbidđing the possession of fire-arms to the common people.”

" Petition from a sick and aged minister, to retire permanently from office.” Forging the current coin." Plundering inroad of Kassacks or Cossacks, on the Russian frontier," &c. The second extract, respecting the Emperor's journey into Tartary, is a special edict, written with the vermilion pencil, published on the 1st moon, 20th day (19th Febrúary). The following is the concluding paragraph :

“ The civil and military officers of Chih-le ought to fashion their hearts by mine. Let them punish and repel every thing that is irregular and bad; let them advance and encourage the worthy and capable. Every measure that is profitable for the people, let them pursue with all their hearts; let them extend the principle of soothing and compassionating, in order that my little children may be saved from the extremity of distress, and from being scattered abroad without a resource: thus seconding my sincere wish to cherish them in proportion to the necessity of the times.”

Mr. Davis observes; in a note : “ The above is a curious specimen of the cant by which the empire of China is, in a great measure, governed."

January 21.-The Society met this day, at the usual hour ; Henry T. Colebrooke, Esq., Director, in the chair. The minutes of the last meeting were read and confirmed.

The following donations were presented :-

From Robert Grant, Esq., the substance of a Speech delivered in the Court of East-India Proprietors, on the motion respecting Haileybury College.

From the Astronomical Society: Part 1, Vol. i., of their Memoirs.

From the Horticultural Society : Parts 1 and 2 of Vol. vi. of their Transactions. List of Members, and Report of Garden Committee.

From the Proprietors: Nos. 1, 2, 3, of the Annals of Oriental Literature.
From the Rev. S. Weston : Notices of Greek cities which have struck coins.

George Parkhouse, Esq. was introduced and admitted'a Member of the Society.

Frederick Leman Rogers, Esq., was elected a Resident Member, and Professor William Freytag, a Foreign Member of the Society.

The reading of a paper, by Capt. James Delamaine, entitled “ Of the Srawacs or Laity of the Jains," was commenced.

Capt. D. considers the Srawacs to be the only considerable remnant of the Arhatas in India. As, however, they principally follow the trade of Banyas, most of the twelve brits (vratas) refer to their particular calling, nor does the author think that they formed a part of the older Jain institutes, as they are quite unsuitable to any purpose of government. They have no longer the distinction of castes ; but they do not hesitate to employ the services of the Brahmans at marriages, &c. Capt. D. gives an account of the following sects, the Dravér, the Jápalya, the Káshta Sankis, the Nichik Sankis, the Teú Pant'hés, and the Tárana Pant'his, all belonging to the Banya class. The continuation of this paper was deferred to the next meeting of the Society, on Feb. 4th.

The second part of the first volume of the Transactions of the Society was published this day, and copies were distributed to the members, Erratum.-In the report of the Proceedings of the Society for December 17, Robert Birks Pitman, Esq., was erroneously designated Licut.. Col.
