THE report of Captain Scott to the presidents of the Royal and Royal Geographical Societies, which is printed in the July number of the Geographical Journal, adds a number of points of geographical interest to those previously published, especially with regard to the great southern ice-barrier, and the nature of the lands discovered by the British expedition; while the map published at the same time, which has had the advantage of revision by Lieut. Shackleton since that officer's arrival, permits the details of the narrative to be followed with much clearness, although it is still to be considered merely provisional.
