The aflronomica! part (which is much more copious than | 

ufual) is adopted to the latitude and meridian of 

PHILADELPHIA ; but may, without 

material trror, be ufed in 

Pennfylvania, New-Jerfey and Delaware. 

The feleded Pieces (of which there is a conftdcrable M 
variety in PROSE and VERSE) 

Have been chofen with care; and.po*hi4f inconfiftent with 

the tcnents of Friends, is admitted into anr

The AUTHOR to the READER. 


HAVE, for feverai years pail, in commen, I believe, with 
rhe religious fociety of winch I am a member, felt much d"ii -appro- 
bation at many things which con Bitot e a part of moft, if not alt, 
the almanacs, in common nfe amomiol os ; things which, L con- 
ceive, have originated from the corrupt roots of idolatry and in-- 
perdition, -Out of the former, has arifen the names commonly 
given to the dayt of the week, and to- many of the months ; ar«l 
out of the latlejF, the pretence of foreknowing the particular kir-i 
of weather for the iuct .ceding year; the notion of die mogn's 
governing fuccHfive'y twelve different poitions of the hurrtjn 
body, according as the is fucceffively in ibe twelve figns of the' 
Zodiac, Sic. 

I believe I cannot better eiprefi my objection io the names by 
which the cavs of 'he welejj and many of the months are commonly-" 
raMed. than in die words of that faithful minii'ler of Chr ! f, Joh-v 
Churchman, in a dialogue with a peyfon, who reqnWIed John 'o 
co-Tie rohim on Saturdays and Wedr,>>f'Jay<. " I -diked him (Ovs 
J<-hn) what idayjs of the week thc.fe were; which he called S:tu ■ -- 
day, and Wednelday P he feeroed to wonder at my rgrrorancpy* 
but knew not how to tell me rwherwife ; i fai i, I do not read :'a 
the fcjipttifcs of any days io named ; fee replied, that is trne ; f( r 
what Fealfon, 'hen, faid I, dofl thou call them io ? becauie it is \ 
ccm;t;0n O'^om^uJ J: 2 : fdppofo then, faid I, that wa lived i:i 
a heathen country among inh^el^'wrr©-^^!!;:^ d jdols, Oio^tM w£ 
follow their cu-ftoms betaufe common ? he replica vftt******^. * 
then faid, if 1 have underRood rightly, the heathens gays •'■>? 
day* of the week thbfe names : I never heard that before, faid be*, 
pT.*p for what r'eafon ? I anfwered, they voifliipped rhe i v c,<\ 
the firu dav of the week, and named it, afrer -heir idol, Sunday ; 
the moon en the fecontj day of the week, fo came Monday, anl 
ihe other ^avs after other idol?, for they had many gods ; third 
dav chev ri^-w-'i-'ud.Iav after their idol Tiiefcoj and after their 
idol Woden, fonrih day ihey cv»"d W^daefday, and fifth day, 
after their idol Thor, they called Thuriday ; Ac- *Vrw^Erid?.v v. 
and after SVfisrri thev mf'rd tie feve-ntn day Saturday •, and as T 
believe in » ! e onlv true God and Jefus Chrift , whom he hath fen?) 

and expeft eternal life by no oilier name or pawer, I dare not for 
eonfcience fake own the gods of the heathen, er name a day after 
them : but chooie the names which the days were caiied by.' when 
rhe Mod High performed his federal works of creation, viz. firB, 
fecond, third, and fo on., which is fcriptural, and moll plain and 
cahly underftood." 

I I objetl to the opinion thai any man, as a mere natural phi- 
Jofopher, can foretell the weather, farther than (as our Saviour 
fold the Pharifees) li When it is evening (he may fay) it wilt 
be fair weather, for the (key is red : and, in the morning, it will 
he foul weather to-day, for the {key is red and lowering. When 
he (ecs a cloud rife out of the well (he may fay) there cometh a 
ihower ; and when the fouth wind blows there will be heat." 
y>y carefully obierving the appearance of the atmofphere, a man 
ir.iy, iometimes. riY«*ke a tolerable guffs at the weather for a day 
*r itco beforehand ; and any pretence of foreknowing more than 
tuts, without the fpint of prophecy, as natural phiiofophy fur- 
j illics neither foundation nor rules, rauft be fuperflitions. 

1 he fa tl ft ems to be pretty well atteded that the mind of man, 
v.hcn anccted with what is called lunacy, undergoes a periodical 
t ban g-, correfpondmg to the moon's pofifion with rcfpeQ to the 
i-ui], that is, with relpeft to her being new or full, increafingor 
I'ccreafing. For aught I know, other things may be alFeded by the 
fame eaufe ; as, by the power of gravity, flie undoubtedly ha* 
tivnt influence upon our atraofpbere, and as the quantity of Jig hi 
&e adores us is com'lantly increafing from her change to her ftiil, 
and cenllanily decreafing from her full to her change. But this 
Ins no connexion with the moon's being in any particular fign of 
rhe Z-odij'.c ; as fhe is new and Ju'l, incrtafng and decreafing in 
the fame figv. at different times; natural phiiofophy furrirlhct 
jo foundation for believing that the moon has any appropriate 
lniunnce on one fart of the animal frame at one tin:::, unci on 
another part at another time. Pretended pr<*W ,a '^ ns f t j 3e Wta . 
slier, the notion, jail mf""":.^, of the ligns, and any belief in 
*,%>.*'»?'.: atpeHs ot the planets and Gars, are fhe remains of that 
Suieieht fu perditions ajir ology, long fince exploded, by all men of 
reai ictence. 1 believe there is not a man to be found, pofieffed 
ut knowledge cnoagh lo calculate an almanac, with accuracy, wild 
«ioes not know that fuch notions are idle and fuperflitious. It way 
be afked, why then do they continue to pubiiih them, from year 
to year, as an elfential part of t^eir almanacs ? — Their CQ:~wiu« 
txcuie is, " People in general (fay lh» j ) reiv fo much on theie 
things, that wuhout them, no almanac womcl Jell — that almoft the 
vkv»lc imppe'fion would he bbojj the pub'iihc'r's hands, ieavinij 
him flij lavur j or fits '•aim.. 

I believe tfjierwjfe", ancl a^ w5tS*g, as appears bv J&e p-e- 
fent inUance, to rifis confide,rao/f« «?o« the IJFuc, h<4»inj» that the 
number of inv felloW citizens who are rivetted to fnrh .frpc>~ 

ft tions, is con paraiively imall. When * man is , accuflomed ro 
Te^ard the planets, their j^VpetiwfUy varied pajRtirfns; and a£- 
pe&s as difpenfing £<W or evitio him, in regulating the wen- 
iher, on which toav depend p&Jity, or, in govern »g, 
W-'A or difttxfe, life or death, alio his fcfti&A, by influencing 
the feveral part* of his body in rotation ; will not fuch a dii- 
pofition t/?ad lo weaken (to lay the leatt of it) that heart-tendering' 
fenfe otconjfani dependence., or gratitude to, and reverent ado- 
ration of his Saviour, which a ch-n-flian ought to feci ? — Ought- 
he not rather to confidcr the pknets-j as they- really arc, vati' 
bodies of matter, although works of the fanve Almighty hand T 
as inanimate and *£nfelefs as the earth on which" he treads ; and 
gratefully to rereive every blc'Iing which Ills enjoys as coming 
ivimtcliateiy fr«»m the only true Ged, the fountain- cf life arc! 
light; humbly fubmittin^ atfo to every fecming evil which' 
may befal him, as a judgment from the fame fource, .mercifully \ 
bitend< d for his correction and amendment", 

I have; adapted the apparent time ef each phenomenon to the 
latitude and meridian for which the Almanac is calculated; 
except the trautit of Mercury ; the firS eclipfe ; the immerlions 
and emerfions of Jupiter's firft fatelike ; and the conjunctions of 
the Moon with fixed ftars ; of which, in ail the Almanacs, the 
apparent time at Washington is fet down, rt being intended to 
reckon our longitude from thence, as the eftub hiked, feat of go- 
vernment. . 

Owing to a concurrence of many circumflances,- which I hope 
will not commonly be the cafe wiih me, the feaibn was fo far' 
advanced before I could get \Wn work ready for the prefs, that 
I fear it will be found, incomplete in many particular?,. 
However, if my friends approve of the general defign, and will 
kindly exmfe the imperfc fctions incident to a fir 11 attempt, and . 
want of furficient fime, I mean to fpare-- uo ■pains- t4 make my , 
future ones more complete and fatisfartory. There may belome 
inaccuracies in the Ivl Friends' meetings, but it was the belt I 
could obtain, I propofe to t^ke meafures for having that aid a 
more exteaftve account of courts quite correct in ay next. l

0* FINDING my name ufurped, in one inftance, 
as the author of an Almanac which is none of it mine, 
except merely the agronomical calculations, 1 think 
it necefTary to caution my friends, who wifh to have 
mine, againft impoiition, by alluring them, that 
whatever the title may be, none is Briggs's Alma- 
nac but thofe which have his name to the preface ; 
and this he means to make a {landing rule in all 
future impreHIons.

ECLIPSES for the TEAR 1799, 

THERE are but two eclipfes this year, both of the Sun, and a 
tranfit of Mercury over the Sun's di(k_, viz. 

Firii Eclipfe. 

On the 4th -of the 5th month, invifibie in the United States. rf at 
yh. 6m. afternoon. The Sun will be centrally eclipfed on the mer di- 
an, at ib. im. afternoon, in longitude ioj-° 22^ W. and latitude &° N. 

In Mexico, this ecliple will begin a little before Sun-fet, which 
•will be the neareft: approach of its viiibility to us. 

Second Eclipfe. 

On the 28rh of the 10th Month, vi(ib!e in the Southern and Weftern 
ftates. A line, pafiing foutheaftwardly through Lake Superior and 
Lake Michigan, near the weft end of Lake ErK-, near the fouthweft 
corner of Penniyl vania, near Clarklburg and Staunton, and conlidera- 
bly fouthweft of Peterfburg .in Virginia, very near Edenton in North- 
Carolina, and into the Atlantic Ocean at Cap 
thole parts nortkeaftward, where this eclipfe will noi be 
thofe foutliweftward, where it will be viiible. 

The following is a lift of the principal places in the United States, 
•where this eclipfe will be vi libit, with the time of its beginning, mid- 
dle, and end, and its quantity, or the number of digits eclipied, at each 
place. The firft impieffion will be on the right band of the Sun's 
fouthern limb.

Let each enrapiui'u thought obey, 
And praife in' Almighty's name,

To fvveii clr Inlpiriug theme. 

Ye fields pf light, celeftiai plains, 
Where gay iranf porting beauty reigns,

Your Maker's wonJ'rous power proclaim y 
Tell Low he form'u your mining frame, 

And bieaih'd the iiuki air. 

Ye angels, catch the thrilling iourd ! 
While ail th' adoring thrones arcani 

His boundiefs mercy fin£ : 
Let ev'i v li&'tting flint above 

Wake ad the tuneful ioui of love. 
And touch the lAccreit firing. 

Join, ye loud fpheres, the muMc bright; 
And thou great orb of darling b^ht, 

The mighty chorus aid : 
Soon as grey ev'hing gilds the plain, 
Thou Moon protract the meltittg fmin, 

A;.d praife him in ihe ihade. 

Thou Heav'n of Heav'ns, his vafl abods,. 
Ye clouds, proclaim vour forming God, 

♦Vho cali'd yon Worlds from night : 
*' Let there be light!*' til' Eternal laid,. 
At once in J involving dsrknels ilcd, 

And nature fprun^ to bi;ht. 

Whate'er a blooming world: contsin?, 
That Wings the ait, that fklms the plains, 

U nil-id praiie bellow : 
Ye dragons found his awful name 
To heav'n aloud! and roar acclaim 

Ye ivvcliinj deeps below. 

Let ev'ry element rejoice : 

Ye thunders, burft with awful voI*e 

To him who bids you roll ; 
Kis praife in fofter nates declare, 
Each whifperin^ breeze of yielding a», 

And breathe it to the ioui. 

Tm Mm, ye graceful cedars bow/, 
Ye tow'tin^ mountains, bending low, 

Your great Creator own ; 
Tell when affrighted nature {h«ok,; 
How Sinai kindled at his look, 

And trembled at his frown. 

Ye flocks that haunt the humble valse, 
Y* iRleiis fluttering on the gale, 

In mutual concourfe rife : 
Crop the gay rofes vermeil Wloom, 
And waft its fpoiis, a fweet perfume, 

In incenfe to the Aries. 
Wake all ye mounting tribes tnd fcnj ; 
Ye plumj warblers oi the fpring, 

Harmonious anthems raiie 
T* him who mup J d your finer mould, 
Who tipp'd your flittering wings with gold, 

AjmI turn'd your voice to praifc 

Let man, by nobler paffiont fway'd, 
The fueling heart ths judging head, 

In heav'nly praife employ ; 
Spread his tremendous name around, 
TiU heav'n's broad arch rings back ths fottftti, 

The general burlt of joy. 

Ye whoM the charms of grandeur ple*fe, 
Nurs'd on the downy lap of tale, 

Fill proitrate at his throne : 
Ye priacss, rulers, all adure ; 
Praife him, ye kings, who make your pow'r 

As image of his own. 
Yc fair by nature, formed to ma? 
O praife th* eternal fource oi love 

With youth's enlivening hre :

A ftroke as fatal, as the fcythe of death. 

The fable warrier, frantic with regret 

Oi her he loves, and never can forget, 

Loies in tears the far receding fhore, 

But not the thought that they muft meet no fcore? 

Depriv'd of her and freedom at a blow, 

What has fat left that he can yet forego? 

"Fes, to Jeep fadnefs fuilenly refign\i, 

He feels his body's bondage in his mind;

Oh moft degrading oi all ills that trait 

On man, a mourner in his beft eJUte! 

All other forrows virtue may endure, 

And fi id fubmifTion more than half a cure; 

Grief is itfelf a medicine, beftov/d 

To improve the fortitude that bears the load, 

To teach the wand'rer, as his woes inereafe, 

The path of wlfdoaa, all whole paths are peace. 

But flav'ry I — Virtue dreads it as her grave ; 

Patience itfelf is meacefs in flave : 

Or, if the will and fovereigaty of God 

Hid fufTcr it a while and kifs the rod, 

Wait for the dawning of a brighter day, 

And fnap the chain the «ao*ient when you may. 

Nature imprints upon wbate'er we fee 

That hai a heart and life in it, be free ! 

The beatt* are charter '4 ;— neither a^e nor force 

Can qurll thr love of freedoia in a horie : 

He breaks the cord that held him at the rack, 

Astl conlcious of an unincumber'd bnck, 

Snuffs up the morning air, forgets the rein, 

Loofe fly his forelock and his ample mane •,
