THE ROYAL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY A general meeting of the Royal Agricultural Society of England was held on Monday at the offices of the society in London, the president, Lord Egerton of Tatton, in the chair. The council reported that the numbers of the society had been diminished by the resignation of 301 members, by the death of one governor and 117 members, or by the removal of 97 members from the books by the order of the council; but these losses had been in a measure repaired by the election of 214 members. The society now con- sisted of 71 life governors, 64 annual governors, 3440 life members, 5387 annual members, and 20 honorary members, making a total of 8982, and showing a decrease of 301 members since the last meeting in December. The accounts for 1886 showed that the funded property of the society re- mained at £31,895 5s. 7d., while the balance of the current account in the handsof the society's bankers on the 1st inst. was JE896 15s., and £ 2000 remained on de- posit. Sir Walter Stirling moved, and the Earl of Jersey seconded, the election of Sir Matthew White Ridley as president for the 'ensuing year. This was carried unanimously. Mr. W. Botly moved the adoption of the report, which after some discussion was agreed to. The auditors having been re-elected, a vote of thanks was passed to the chairman, on the motion of Lord Ravensworth.
