WORCESTEJO ARTIGO

THE STANDARD.
TESTIMONY FROM HIGH AUTHORITY.

LIBRARY OF CONGRESS, Washingtor, Feb 17, 1875. Gentlemen, – The report having been made that Webster's English Dictionary is adopted as the standard by national officers, to the exclusion of Worcester's, I take occasion to say that far as the Library of Congress is concerned, Weebster has never been follorred in orthography in printing its catalognes, reports, or any other documents. On the contrary, wherever proofs from the Congressional Printing Office embody the innovations upon English orthography which Wiebster introduced, they are invariably returned with corrections restors ing the established spelling, as represented by Worcester and the usage of all great English writers. Very respectfully, A. R. SPOFFORD,

Librarian of Congress. X For Sale by Booksellers generally. BREWER & TILESTON, Publishers,

TO PATRONS AND CORRESPONDENTS. With the New Year we again offer to our friends and to the public their old acquaintance and the companion of their forefathers, the “Old Farmer's Almanack.” We trust it will long be a welcome visitor at the firesides of our New England homes. A Happy New Year to all!

The Courts, alphabetically arranged, take up a good deal of space, but they will be found in very convenient form for reference.

It is our aim to have everything accurate, but errors creep into most human work. If our friends find any in ours, they will confer a favor by informing the publishers.

The Tide Table will be found on page 45. The P. 0. Regulations on pages 46 and 47, and the other tables in their places, as in last year's Almanack.

We close in the words of the founder of this Almanack:

“ It is by our works, and not by our words, we would be judged: these, we hope, will sustain us in the humble though proud station we have so long held.
