THE Italian naturalist Beccari is again in New Guinea, exploring the north coast near Humboldt's Bay, along with an expedition sent out by the Governor-General of the Dutch Colonies. Of his former companion, D'Albertis, now at Yule Island, near the south-eastern extremity of New Guinea, we regret to hear that one of his collections from that district, containing about 35,000 insects and 700 reptiles, has been lost on its transit from Cape York. The bird-skins were, fortunately, not sent by the same vessel, and are therefore safe.
