Why do we heap huge mounds of years

Before us and behind,
And scorn the little days that pass
Like angels on the wind ?

TO PATRONS AND CORRESPONDENTS. ANOTHER year of peace and prosperity has blessed our country. Though New England has suffered somewhat from the drought of the past summer, yet the West and the South rejoice in an abundant harvest, and the East must partake of the general prosperity. Let us wisely use our abundant resources to provide broad and deep foundations for the welfare of those to come after us. The table of holidays is on page 5. The tide tables are on page 38. The other tables will be found in their usual places.

We have to thank our friends and correspondents for their favors, and beg they will continue to obl' re us with their suggestions or corrections. We close with the words of the founuer 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 have so long held.
