chine for resolving certain equations." The construction of such a machine was originally contemplated only as a speculative possibility; but Sir J. Herschel happened to be at that time engaged in investigating the elliptical orbits of some of the most remarkable double stars; and in the course of this inquiry he had continual occasion for the numerical resolution of the cases of such equations in every state of the data. Finding the preliminary trials requisite for establishing a rapid convergence of the successive approximations consume a great deal of time, even more than the approximations themselves when once effectually entered upon, he set himself to consider whether some simple contrivance, free from such objections, might not be found, which would give him by inspection at least a first approximation to the solution, and thus prove of immediate practical utility. The paper contains a description of a construction which has been used by him for this purpose ; and of modifications of this construction by which several extensions of such equations may be solved. Mr. Willis read a paper “ On the use of the ventricles of the larynx." Mr. Willis conceives that the larynx is closed by the mutual pressure of the upper ligaments which lie above the ventricles, and which are locked by the pressure of the air itself, instead of being, as is commonly supposed, closed by muscular action, acting on the vocal ligaments which lie below the ventricles, in which case every increase of pressure would require an increase of effort to keep the larynx close. This opinion has recently been remarkably confirmed by a case which occurred in the Middlesex hospital ; in which a person who attempted suicide laid open the larynx in such a manner that the internal motions of the parts could be observed. Professor Henslow commenced the reading of a memoir containing observations on a monstrosity of the common mignonette, tending to throw light upon the question recently discussed among botanists respecting the classification of that plant. After the meeting, Mr. Willis gave a lecture, illustrated by experiments, upon various points connected with the subject of sound. He exhibited Weber's correction of Savart's statement concerning the form of the nodal lines in tubes vibrating longitudinally; and Mr. Wheatstone's experiment to shew the conspiring or counteracting vibrations of the parts of a glass plate, into which its nodal lines divide it; by holding it, while vibrating, opposite to both ends of a bent pipe. Mr. Willis noticed also the differ
At a meeting of the Syndics of the · Public Library, it was agreed as follows:“ As it appears to the Syndics that the present Librarian is inadequately remunerated for the time and attention which he devotes to the discharge of the duties of his office : agreed, that it be recommended to the Senate to increase the salary of the present Librarian from 210/. to 3001. a year ; and to pay the additional 901. out of the common chest; the augmentation to commence from Lady Day 1832."--It was intended that a grace should be offered to the Senate, agreeably to the above recommendation, but it was subsequently withdrawn in consequence of a letter which was received from Mr. Lodge, in which, we believe, that gentleman requested that the proposed increase might be deferred until several improvements, connected with the University, had been carried into effect.
PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY. A meeting of the Philosophical Society was held on Monday evening, May 21, Professor Cumming, Vice-President, being in the chair. The conclusion of Sir J. Herschel's Memoir was read, “ On a ma
