TO PATRONS AND CORRESPONDENTS.

THE tides were calculated as usual, but it has been thought that it would be more convenient to have them reduced to even quarter hours; and this has been done, and the tides given in fractions of an hour, instead of minutes, as formerly. It will be seen that this can vary but seven minutes in any case from the computed time. Thus, if the computed time gives the high tide at 5 hours 53 minutes, it is given in the columns as 6 o'clock. If it is 5 hours 52 minutes, it is given as 53 hours, or a quarter before 6 o'clock.

The times of meeting of the County Commissioners of the various counties are given by themselves, as a matter of greater convenience, on page 5. A list of the Registers in Bankruptcy in New England is also given on page 5.

The motto on the title-page, and the stanzas on the calendar pages, are selected from the sprightly pen of JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL. The table of STAXP DUTIES, on pages 42 and 43, will be extremely convenient for reference,

All communications should be addressed to me, care of the Publishers, and sent previous to July 1st, when they will receive prompt attention. We can only say that we offer many times the cost of our little manual, and that “no efforts shall be spared to make the Almanac useful, pleasing, and worthy the continued patronage of its numerous friends,
