TO PATRONS AND CORRESPONDENTS. ANOTHER new year brings with it the familiar annual of nearly a hundred years, the “OLD FARMER'S ALMANAC.” It was familiar to our grandfathers when they were boys: it will, we hope, hang at the chimney corners of our grandchildren. However, our business is not with the future or the past. Let us address ourselves to the present. We have to do now with this year - A HAPPY NEW YEAR to all the sons and daughters of New England !
We devote, as usual, a large share of our space to the farming interests, and we trust the agricultural articles will be found interesting and profitable.
We should be pleased to receive from our friends any suggestions that may occur to them with reference to any part of the Almanac, and should be especially obliged for the correction of any errors that may be found.
Thanks are due to various correspondents for suggestions and answers to puz. zles, &c., and with the hope that this year's Almanac may be worthy of its predecessors, we close in the words of the founder of this Almanac:
“ 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..

IN THE ALMANAC. · The heights of the tides are indicated in a general way, by designating them as high and low, very high and very low tides. Whenever the tides have been increas. ing for several days, and then begin to diminish, the highest one is called a high tide: and when they have been diminishing for several days, and then begin to increase, the lowest one is called a low tide : and the dates on which the successive changes occur throughout the year are indicated in this manner. Whenever a low tide is lower than the average of all the low tides of the year, it is called a very low tide : and in the same manner, when a high tide is higher than the average high tides, it is called a very high tide. The difference in height between a high tide and a fol. lowing low one, or between a low tide and a following high one, may be only a few inches; but from a low tide to a very high one, or from a bigh tide to a very low one,
