ADDITIONAL NOTE.

CALCEOLA IN THE UPPER BILURIAN BOCKS OP TENNESSEE. Since writing the note under the above title (page 807), it has occurred to us that an Upper Silurian species of Calceola, from Tennessee, was described by F. Roemer, some years ago, under the name of C. Tennesscensis. Professor Stafford's species is perhaps idenfifled with this.-E.J. O,
