An excellent likeness of Goveror STRONG accompanies the present edition ;-not merely in compliment to His Excellency, but that thousands who never yet have had an opportunity of beholding the original, might therein trace the features of a gentleman, who has 90 often been elected to the chief magistracy of Massachusetts. Should the Editor be farnured with likenesses of gentlemen who bave been eminent in the State, he will endeavour to have accurate plates obtained, and attach them to the future volumes of the Manual, &c.

The Astronomical calculations, from Jan. 1815, to July following, are by master Stoddurd Capen, a youth of extraordinary genius and application ; and who bids fair to add additional lustre to the scientific character of Boston.

Biographical notices of gentlemen eminent for Patriotism, Learning, or Public Usefulness (whether of living or deceased characters), will be received, and treated with all possible atten. tion ;-as will Historical, Political, Agricultural, Commercial, Na. val, Military, Religious, Medical, and all other articles, whieh may be interesting, novel, entertaining or instructive.

In a work of this nature, embracing such a great number of facts, &c. it is almost impossible, with the greatest cautiun, to avoid making or overlooking some errors. The Appendix (at the end of this volume) will enable the reader to correct a few errors which were discovered too late to be corrected in their proper places.—A variety of additional information will also be found in the Appendix. There may be some mistakes in the names of officers of the Institutions given; but none are known to us. To avoid errors in future, it is thought proper to state, that any Institution wishing to be recorded in this work, can direct their secretaries &c. to furnish the Editor with a correct list, and it shall be inserte ed. But the Editor had rather omit any thing, than be in the dis. agreeable predicament of guessing as to its correctness.

Resting his hopes on deserving the approbation and support of his friends and the public, the Editor remains, their devoted ser.
