NOTE.-In the table above it is to be understood that the word "near" and the character ¿ (conjunction) are synonymous and mean that the two bodies are nearest each other at the time expressed, and that they are then on a line running from the North Pole through both bodies, and have the same right ascension. GR. ELON. means greatest elongation or greatest apparent angular distance from the Sun. STATIONARY means that the planet is then without apparent motion east or west with respect to the Stars, and is about to move in a direction contrary to that it last had. The character 8 indicates that the planet is opposite the Sun, or 180 deg., or a half circle east of it, and-rises when the Sun sets, and sets when he rises. When a planet is a quarter of a circle or 90 deg. from the Sun, east or west, it is known by []. PLANETARY CHARACTERS.- Mercury, Venus, & Mars, 2 Jupiter, Saturn, H Uranus, Neptune, Moon.

The above table enables us to find the planets throughout the year.

A Table of Sixty-one Bright Stars.

To ascertain when any Star or constellation found in the following Table will be on the upper meridian, add the numbers opposite in the left-hand column of figures to the time of "Sidereal Noon" found in the calendar pages. For the RISING of a Star, subtract the number opposite in the right-hand column of figures from its meridian passage. For the setting of a star, add the same number to its meridian passage. Those marked (........) revolve in a circle of perpetual apparition, and do not rise or set north of the latitude of New York (40° 42′ 40''), for which latitude the semidiurnal arcs are calculated. The civil day begins at midnight, and consequently 24 hours after midnight, or 12 hours from noon, is morning of the succeeding day; and more than 24 hours from noon, is evening of the next day. This table is arranged in the order of culmination.

Surveyors and Civil Engineers may obtain the variation of the magnetic needle by observations on the Pole Star when upon the meridian, or when at its greatest elongation east or west. POLARIS and other stars pass the lower meridian 11h. 58m. after their upper transit. To the time of upper transit of Polaris, add 5h. 54m. and it gives the time of greatest western elongation. If the 5h. 54m, be subtracted from the time of upper transit, it will give the time of greatest eastern elongation. Observations made at the time of greatest elongation are less liable to error than those made at the time of transit. The mean distance of Polaris from the pole this year is 1° 23' 20.47". To find its azimuth for any latitude, take from 18.384548 the logarithmic cosine of the latitude, and the remainder is the logarithmic sine of the azimuth.

Mercury, March 21, July 19, and November 7. NOTE. The exterior planets are regarded as Evening Stars from their western quadrature to conjunction with the Sun, and as Morning Stars from conjunction to western quadrature, rising in the latter case between midnight and sunrise. The interior planets are Evening Stars from superior conjunction to their inferior conjunction, and then Morning Stars to superior conjunction. Venus does not reach the inferior conjunction this year, but it runs rapidly to it after its greatest elongation east, December 13, being about this time very beautiful.

ALLCOCK'S POROUS PLASTERS accumulate elec tricity, whereby the circulation of the blood becomes equalized upon the part where applied, causing pain and morbid action to cease. They cure Pain of the Back, Chest, and Side almost as soon as applied. Certificate from Á. F. Sterling, Esq. :-"For two years I have bee a great sufferer from Neuralgia in the head, and found only temporary relief from all the various remedies that I have tried, until I applied one of ALLCOCK'S FO. ROUS PLASTERS.' I cut it into three strips, placing one under each shoulder blade and the other over the small of my back, and for the past three months I have had scarcely a twinge of the old pain.
