New and Valuable Tide Table for 110 Places. To for the time of high-water at any of the places named in the following table, add time indicated in the first column of figures to the time of " Moon South,"fon in the calendar pages. If the result is more than 12 hours from noon, the time will be the neck day in ito morning, and if more than 12 hours from midnight, the time will be in the afternoon of the same day. The tide thus found is the first after the Moon's culmination. The coond tide occors 12 hours and 23 minutes later than the first.

A Table of Sixty-one Bright Stars. To ascertain when any Star or constellation found in the following Table will be on the wpper 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 le88 liable to error than those made at the time of transit. The mean distance of Polaris from the pole this year is 1° 23' 40%. To find its azimuth for any latitude, take from 18.386236 the logarithmic cosine of the latitude, and the remainder is the logarithmic sine of the azimuth.
