GEOLOGICAL DISCOVERY.-At the last meeting of the Glas gow Philosophical Society a most interest- ing petrifaction was exhibited by the Rev. N. )ii, who had discovered it in the coal strata at Dalmarnock, in this neighbourhood, at a depth of iiOO feet under the surface. It is an insect, a species of fly, petrified simultaneously with a stem of one of the plants of the coal formation, the Catamites dubius to which it is attached. This is the first discovery of an individual of the insect tribe in the early forma- tions, and Lie specimen is, therefore, unique of its Lmd. It is thought to be an extinct species of the t;etnjs Limnobia.—Glasgow Constitutional.
