Mr. GALTON said Mr. Baines's contributions to geography from this last journey were very considerable, the map which he had made being in reality an itinerary through a district extending over more than 750 miles. Probably no living man, not even excepting Dr. Livingstone, has been so pertinaciously engaged in travelling as Mr. Baines. Twenty years ago he made his first expedition northwards in Africa, but was driven back ; afterwards he went to Australia, and was connected with Mr. Gregory's exploration ; then he joined Livingstone in exploring the Zambesi; next he travelled on the west side of Africa ; and now he was engaged in examining the gold-fields near the Limpopo. His pictorial contributions to geographical and ethnological knowledge were exceedingly numerous and valuable.
