4°*N.

Two, both Solar, and both invisible in Brisain, March 22d, the Sus will be eclipsed, the conjunétion at 5 h. 50 m. P. M. in longitude 2° 49'{, Moon's latitude 3' N. The ecliple will be central on the meridian at 5 h. 51'l in long. 87° 52'\ W. and lat.

September 16th in the morning the Sun will be eclipsed; the con... junction at 9 h. 18'in longitude 5 S. 24° 8', Moon's lat. I min. South. It will be central on the Meridian at gh. 18' in long. 40° 30' E. and lat. 1°1 N.

Venus will be a Morning Star till Avg. 6th ; then an Evening Star to the year's end.

Jupiter will be a Morning Star till April 15th, then an Evening Star till Nov. 3d, after that a Morning Star to the erd of the year.

The Georgian Planet will be in opposition to the Sun, Feb. sch ar 11 at nigät, declination about 16° 28' N.

Nothing at the time of writing this, has been seen or heard of the expecled Comet ; so that it is moft likely that those of 1532, and 1661 were not the same, but different ones.

Mr. Jobn Dalton of Kendal says, that the Sun's eclipse on the 3d of April latt was observed there, lat. 54° 20' N. long, near, 2° 50' W. The beginning o h. 9 m. P. M. greaieit obscuration about 1 b. 34 m. end 2 h. Ś3 m. duration 2 h. 44 m. The errors, continues he, in point of time, I believe will not exceed half a minate. The true noon was determined by a Meridian line previously made; also hy two equal altitudes of the Sun the same day, both agreeing to half a minute. The Sun's altitude was found at the end of the eclipse also, and the time of that was found by calculation to agree with the clock very nearly. And he concludes from the observations, that the tables have not given the Moon's latitude exactly. But of this it is hard to judge, from observations made by those, who are not in the constant practice of fa doing
