We must not allow the present occasion to pass without adverting to the highly interesting lecture on the Buddhistical remains of Gyah and its neighbourhood, delivered in the Society's hall, on the 31st ult. by Capt.

As the substance of the lecture is contained in the various papers handed to the Secretaries by that gentleman for publication in the Journal, it is unnecessary to give any more extended notice of it here; but we may mention that there was a goodly attendance of both members and strangers, who appeared much gratified with the instruction and entertainment of the evening. We trust that Capt. Kittoe's good example will be followed by others whose researches admit of communication in the same agreeable form.
