Opposite Divisions XV., XVI., XVII., XVIII. are arranged exhibits of a

Miscellaneous character.

First in importance are the two collections, one in the rough the other polished, of

Timbers.

The first consists of 206 Slabs of the the most useful Queensland timbers, 3 ft. long by 6 in. square with bark on. Ornamental Inlaid Table Top to illustrate the same.

About 2 cwt. squared Timber, 2 ft. long, from Warwick
District.
Ornamental Inlaid Table to illustrate the same.
Timber from Lower Herbert, Daintree River Cedar, and
Endeavour Gum.

A full description of these is attached to the specimens, and will be inserted in the second edition of this Catalogue.

They have been collected and described by Walter Hill, Esq., the Director of the Government Botanical Gardens, Brisbane.

The second collection of polished woods was also arranged by Walter Hill, Esq.; they were, however, when in the rough subjected to long immersion in sea water, owing to the wreck of the ship in which they were being conveyed to England, and on that account hardly do justice to their value to the cabinet maker. Their description is as follows:
