\ RE AD £ R, pleafe to obferve,

THIRST. The calculations of this Almanack are made to fokir or •
j X apparent time : to which for the mean or clock time, apply the
j equation given in the fixth column ; adding when the fun is flow, and
| fubtra<ftir,g when faft.

II. The time of high water at Philadelphia is fo computed as to
[ ferve for either morning or afternoon, nearly enough for common

ufe 5 the morning flood being about 12 m. earlier than the time in j
j the tide column, and that of the afternoon as much later; except when <
there happens but one flood in the day, in which cafe the true time i
is given, and diftinguifhed by this mark. * I

III. The fun's declination is carefully fitted to the meridian of Phi- j
ladelphia, for every noon of the prefent year, in order to fiave the ac- 5
curate American mariner the trouble oi proportioning the declina- j
tion taken from the London tables to his meridian, in voyages near I
our coafh ; and that thofe who are not fo particular as to attend to v
the difference of the London and Philadelphia declinations, may have j
their reckonings the more correct.

IV. The rihng, fetting, or fouthing of a ftar may be carried feve- j
ral days backward by adding, or forward by iubtracling, 4 m. per ]]
day : for inftance : on the 8th of the firft Month (January) Sirius is
fouth at I j m.paft n ; adding 12 m. for three days fooner, we have j
II h. 27 in. for the foy thing on the 5th; and deducting 8 m. for 2 j
later, leaves 11 h. 7 m. for that of the 10th of the fame month, &c. j

V. The time of Alioth's paffage over the meridian, or when a j
plumb-iiue apparently cuts &oth the Pole-ftar and Alioth, is given, i

I for the firft fix rncnths above, and for the laft fix below, the pole, to j

j five cays in every month j and may be readily known for any day by

the preceding note. Tfcsfe two ftars will be vifibly coincident with a

level eaft and weft line at 5 h. 59 m. before or after Aiioth paffes the

I meridian : Thus we may regulate time-pieces to a minute, or^tell the

j time without them. The Pole-ftar is on the meridian five minutes

later than Alioth, when a true meridian line may be drawn by it,

and the magnetic variation thereby determined, &c.

Alioth is the firft ftar in the tail of the Great-Bear, viz. that next
to thefquare; or, it is the third ftar of the leven, commonly called
the Waggon, or Plough, counting toward thofe two of them deno-
minated the Pointers.

VI. As the day ends at midnight, the rifing, fetting and fouthing of
the moon, when after that time, is found againft the fucceeding day :
fo, on the night of (or following) the 13th. of the firft Month (Janu-
ary) the moon rife* at 1 h. 6 m. after midnight, y^z. in the morning
of the 14th, not at o h- 9 ni. the time oppoiite the 13th, which is that
of its rifing .the preceding morning.



To afcertain the Time of Night by the Itfioni Shadow on a Sun Dial,
TO the time indicated by the ftudow, add the moon's fouthing,

:.nd the Sum, when under 12 h. or the excefs thereof above ret, will

be the time of night.

Account of the Palma Chvifti: or
Tree that produces the Caftor Oil
Nut.

THIS tree is of fpeedy growth; as, in
one year it arrives at its full heigh th,
which feWom exceeds twenty, feet. The
trunk is fubligneous ; the pith is large ; the
leaves broad and palmated ; the flower fpl^e
is fimple, and thickly fei with yellow bbf-
foms in the fliape of a cone; the capfules
are triangular and prickly, containing three
fmooth grey mottled feeds.

When the bunches begin to turn black,
they are gathered, dried in the fun. and the
feeds picked out. They are afterwards put
ur for ufe, as wanted, or for exportation.

Caftor oil is obtained either by exprefiion
or by decoction. The firft method is prac-
tifed in England ; the latter in Jamaica. It
is common firft to parch the nuts or feeds in
an iron pot over the fire : but this gives the
oil an empyreumatic tafte, fmeli, and co-
lour ; and it is beft prepared in this man-
ner :

A large iron pot or boiler is firft prepa-
red, and half filled with witer. The nuts
are then beaten in parceh, in deep wooden
mortars, and after a quantity is beaten, it is
thrown into the iron veffel. The lire is
then lighted, and the liquor is gently buied
for two hours, and kept conftantly ftirred.



F E B R U A R r. Second Month.



Life's prefent comforts this at once'dellroys,

And makes us reftlefs for untaftsd joys.

Heav'n kindly grants the boon, which we implore :

That boon receiv'd, we murmur as before ;

By wild caprice, from youth to age are led,

Nor ceafe complaints, till number'd with the dead.

The mifer, brooding o'ei his treafur'd heap,
J^arrno enjoyment from poiicfiion reap ;

About this time, the oil begins to feparate,
and fwims on the top, mixed with a -white
froth, and is ffcinjmed off, till no more rifes,
The fkimmings are heated in a fmall iron
pot, and {trained through a cloth. When
cold, it is put up in jars or bottles for ufe.

Caftor oil, thus made, is clear 'and well
flavoured; and, if put into proper bottle?,
will keep fweet for years.

The exprefled caftor oil foon turns rancid,
becaufe the mucilaginous and acrid parts of
the nut are fqueezed out with the oil. On
this account, I give the preference to well
prepared oil by decoction.

An Englifh Gallon of the feeds yei|ds a-
bout two pounds of oil, which is a great
proportion.

Before the difturbanCes in America, the
planters imported train oil for lamps and o-
ther purpofes about fugar works. It is now
found that the caftor oil can be procured as
ches.p as the fifb oil of America. It burns
clearer, and has not any offenfive fmell.
This oil, too, is fit for all the purpofes of
the painter, or for the apothecary, in oint-
ments and platters.

As a medicine, it purges without ftimu-
lus; and is fo mild as to be given to infants
foon after birth, to purge off the meconium.

All oils are noxious to infedb : but the caft-
or oil kills and expels tbem. It is general-
ly given as a purge after .ufing the cabbage
bark fome days.

In conftipation and belly-ach, this oil is
ufed with remarkable fuccefs. It fits well
on the flomach, allays the fpafm,and brings
about a plentiful evacuation by flool, efpeci-
ally if at the fame time fomentations, or the
warm bath, are ufed.

Belly-ach is at prefent lefs frequent in
Jamaica than formerly, owing to frverai
caufes. The inhabitants, in general, live
better and drink better liquors. But the
exceffive drinking of new rum Hill tnakes-it
frequent among ibldiers,- feilors, and the
lower order of white people. I have known
it happen too from viiceral ebftruciite>n3, af-
ter intermittent*, or March fevers in Ja-
maira.

The Deformed and Handibme L>eg.

By Dr. Franklin.

THERE are two forts of people in the
world, who, with equal degrees of
health and wealth, and the other comforts
of life, become, the okc happy, and the o-
ther miferable. This arifes very much from
the different views in which th«y confider
things, perfons, and events — and the effect
of thofe- different views upon their own
minds.

Till fancy gently whifpers in his ear,
" Methinks a pair would more genteel appear.'*
Thefe, purchas'd once, unnumber'd wants create ;
Now fplendor charms him, equipage, and Hate :
Shifting about, inconftant as the wind,
To various fchemcs, at various times inclin'd ;
What'er is prefent grants a tranfient joy :
New objects ftrike him, and as quickly cloy.
