kindly promised by Dr. Gray, and since placed at the disposal of the Smiths. Inst. by the
courtesy of the Trustees of the British Museum ; but, unfortunately, the blocks were not
to be found at the time. They will appear, however, in forthcoming Smithsonian publi-
cations. The 'Lecture on the Shells of the Gulf of California,' in the A r ol. for 1859,

of specimens, representing varieties and ages, in Dr. Lea's private collection
{ire well deserving of close study. Their owner shares the liberality of Mr.
Curaing in making them available for all purposes of scientific inquiry.

The Smiths. Inst. has just issued from the press the first part of the
' Bibliography of North American Conchology, previous to the year I860,' by
W. GK Binney, containing references to all printed information on North
American shells by native writers. It is divided into " A. American descrip-
tions of North American molluscs ; B. American descriptions of foreign
molluscs ; C. Descriptions of foreign species by American authors in foreign
works." The work is prepared with unusual care and completeness, and
with the accurate judgment which characterizes all Mr. Binney's writings.
It contains, under every separate work or paper, " a list of species therein
described or in any important manner referred-to, together with their syno-
nymy, locality, and the volume, page, plate, and figure relating to them."
The second part, containing similar references to American species described
by European writers, is now passing through the press. Mr. Binney has
most kindly sent the proofs to the writer (as far as p. 287), which have been
freely used in preparing this Report, and have supplied various important
sources of information. It undertakes to provide for the whole ^orth American
continent what has been here attempted for the West Coast ; and in much
greater detail, as not only the first description, but all subsequent quotations
are duly catalogued. It may be regarded as a complete index of references
to all works on North American malacology. The student, in making use
of it, will remember that it is only with the Pulmonates that Mr. Binney
professes an intimate acquaintance. For these the work may be regarded as
complete. But, in other departments of the science, only those shells which
are assigned by the authors to North America are quoted ; consequently a
large number of species are passed-over which are truly American, but are
assigned to other places, or described without locality. Also, species really
belonging to other faunas, but falsely attributed to North America, duly
appear as though genuine ; and the additional localities frequently assigned
by the authors (which are often the real habitats) are seldom quoted. More-
over the citations stop at Mazatlan ; consequently, the tropical fauna of the
West Coast is but imperfectly represented. Lastly, the authors are not pre-
sented in chronological or indeed in any other ostensible order ; but it is pro-
mised that the necessary information will be given in the index on the com-
pletion of the work. The student will further bear in mind that for many
reasons no second-hand reference can serve the same purpose as a consultation
of the original book. With these cautions the work will be found invaluable
by all who are engaged in working-out American species ; and great thanks
are due to Mr. Binney for undertaking the extreme labour of its compilation,
and to the Smiths. Inst. for supplying the expense of its publication. Probably
no such work has yet been printed on the malacology of any other country.

Lastly, there is now in preparation a complete series of hand-books on
North American malacology, copiously illustrated with wood engravings, and
containing a digest of all that is known in each department. The marine
shells of the Atlantic are being described by Dr. Stimpson, who is now also
engaged in the dissection of the Freshwater Rostrifers ; the marine shells of
the Pacific are placed in the hands of the writer ; the Pulmonates will be
thoroughly worked-out by Mr. Binney, the Melaniala? by Mr. Try on, and

the Cy clad id re by Mr. Prime. Thus it appears that the malacologists have
been unusually zealous in advancing their before somewhat slumbering study ;
and that the Smiths. Inst. has displayed unexpected liberality in preparing
and issuing from the press works of a comprehensive character, for the " in-
crease and diffusion of what will hereafter be regarded as an important
branch of "knowledge among men."

94. North Pacific Exploring Expedition. In the year 1853, Dr. W.
Stimpson, well known in very early life for his dredging-researches and ob-
servations on the marine animals of the Atlantic coast, accompanied Captain
King-old as naturalist to the IT. S. " North Pacific Exploring Expedition." Its
principal object was to obtain more correct information with regard to the
Japan seas and the extreme north of the Pacific, and it was only incidentally
that it visited the Californian province. However, Dr. Stimpson's extensive
dredgings in the fiords of Japan developed the interesting fact, that while the
southern shores presented a fauna essentially Indo-Pacific in its character,
and abounding in the usual Cones, Cowries, Olives, &c., the northern slopes
of the same islands presented an assemblage of forms far more analogous to
the fauna of the Sitka and Vancouver region, and containing many species
common to the American coast. During the course of the voyage dredging-
collectionsf were made by Dr. Stimpson at Madeira, Cape of Good Hope, Sydney
Harbour, Coral Seas, Port Jackson, Hong Kong (also by Mr. Wright; New Ire-
land, Lieut. Van Wy eke; Gasper Straits, Squires ; vicinity of Canton, presented
by Mr. Bowring ; interior of Hong Kong, Wright) ; China Sea ; Whampoa ;
Bonin Island; Loo Choo Island; Ousima; Katonasima Straits; Kikaia;
Kikaisima ; Kagosima [alas !] ; Hakodadi ; Taniogesima (also Wright, Kent,
Kern, Boggs, Carter); Simoda; Niphon (also Brook); Arvatska Bay, Kanit-
schatka; Amincheche Island, Avikamcheche Island, Behring Straits; Scnia-
vine Straits, Arctic Ocean (also Captain Rogers) ; San Francisco; (Puget Sound
and Shoalwater Bay, Dr. Cooper, Cat. no. 1849-1856); Tahiti (also Captain
Stephens, Kern), Hawaii (also Garrett ; Sea of Ochotsk, Captain Stevens). All
these were duly catalogued, with stations, depths, and other particulars, and
living animals preserved in spirits after being drawn. The expedition appears
to have returned in 1856. Although Dr. Stimpson devoted his chief attention
to articulate animals, and molluscs occupied but a subordinate share of his
attention, it is safe to say that in this short period he collected more trust-
worthy species of shells, with localities, than were received at the Smiths.
Inst. from the united labours of the naturalists of Captain Wilkes's celebrated
expedition. Through some unaccountable cause, certain of the most valuable
boxes were "lost" between New York and Washington ; the remainder were
placed in the hands of Dr. Gould for description, with the MS. catalogue, a
copy of which forms the " Mollusca, Vol. I.," nos. 1-2003, of the Smiths.
Mus. Fortunately, Dr. Gould embraced the opportunity to bring the un-
certain shells to London, and compare them with the Cumingian Collection.

t A fuller account of this expedition is here given than is justified from its contrilml ions
to the W. American fauna, because no other information respecting it is as yet availabta
to the malacological student.

rhus a large body of species, named from, types, was prepared for the New
World ; but, unfortunately, through, imperfect packing and the practice of
marking by numbers only, much of the value of this identification was lost.
The new species were described by Dr. Gould in the ' Boston Proc. Soc. Wat.
Hist.,' 1859-1861; and on completion of the series, the author collected
the papers embodying the new species of the two great scientific expeditions,
as well as his other scattered publications, and issued them in a most valuable
book, entitled ' Otia Conchologica : Descriptions of Shells and Molluscs, from
1839-1862,' Boston, 1862; with "Rectifications," embodying such changes of
nomenclature and synonyms as he desired to represent his matured views.
In quoting Dr. Gould's writings, therefore, this table should always be con-
sulted. A considerable portion of the specimens have been returned to the
Smiths. Inst., of which the larger species are mounted in the collection, and
the smaller ones have been sent to the writer to compare with those collected
by Mr. A. Adams, which were unfortunately being described in the London
journals almost simultaneously. The war has unhappily postponed the in-
tention of publishing the complete lists of species collected and identified with
so much accurate care. The following, however, have already been deter-
mined by Dr. Gould from the region in which American species occur. The
list is given entire (so far as identified), because species as yet known only
on one coast of the North Pacific may hereafter be found on the other. It
contains (as in the comparison of the Caribbean and West Mexican fauna)
(a) species certainly identical, (6) probably identical, (c) " interesting ana-
gues," and (d) representative forms.
