A QUESTION,

A QUESTION, by the Reverend Mr. J. Morgan, of Eglos

kerry, Cornwali. T Desire to know at what time the bright star called Aldebaran

was due fouch on the 11th of December last, old Ayle.

A QUESTION, by Agathos Pais, of Taunton. A Farmer near Taunton has 1000 bushels of barley, for A which he expects 45. 3d. per bushel, but consents to take it all out in malt, allowing 3d. per bushel for making, is. 6d. per bushel daty, and his proportion of iool. per annum, the maltiters neat profit upon 5 500 bushels. The increase is ftipula. ted at four busheis and half upon a score* in favour of the farmer. How many bushels of malt (and at what per bushel) must he receive in barter for his barley under che agreement as above stated ?

* Taunton malısters have the art of gaining five bushels upon a score when the barley is good. In this case the odd half bushel is an additional profit to the root. per annum, exclusive of is. 6d. duty. Three-pence per bu!hel making is very sufficient to pay the house rent, fire, grinding, and wear and tear of all forts, it amounting in the whole to 681. 155. the said 5500 bushels being a noderate seven months labour for one man.

A REBUS,

A REBUS, by J. S. of Shepton-Mallet.
V ZHAT on the raging ocean's seen ;

VV What, without doubt, we all have been ;
A name of this terraqueous ball;
An infect that is very small;
And after all I'd have you fee
The founder of idolatry.

TH'initials, if they're right fet down,
Will name a pop'lous market town,
Where the tower stands at the east
End of the church, instead of west ;
And furthermore, (as records tell). .

There's near unto'o a burning well,. . Which is described thus, after naming the town : * Near this town there is a burning well, which, by putting a lighted candle to the water, will flame like brandy. The flame io calm weather will last a whole day, by the heat whereof they can boil meat; but the water taken out of the well is cold. 7

Ar ENIGMA, by J. Hodge, of Wells.
TIHEN God created earth and heav'n
V¥ And had to all his blessing given,

I had not then my-birth : .
I was not found in earth nor sea ;
For God ne'er order'd I should be.

A dweller on the earth.
Qoite the reverse; for God forbade,
And order'd I fhould not be made,

Nor yet to any known; ..
But fpite of all, (oh, ftrange to tell
That I was made is known too well

And is too often hewn.

Nay, more—I have a foul like you ; .
(Pray, Sirs, donlt ftarem-thoagh' ftrange, 'tis true)

Which must forever dwell."
Either in hell, or with the jutt,
While my corpfe moulders in the duft. . .
Now who I am pray tell. :
