of Philadelphia, as may serve to give an idea of the state of industry in the city, without bringing individual interests into conflict, and would invite the contribution of similar notices from other parts of the Union. They again urge mechanics to contribute practical matters to the journal, and thus to render their knowledge conducive to the general progress of the arts in which they are interested. Besides the view given of the progress of mechanical science by original articles and selections from journals at home and abroad, the Committee are promised notices and abstracts, exhibiting this progress in a more condensed form, by John C.

Cresson, Professor of Mechanics of the Institute.Original articles in chemical and physical science, will, as heretofore, be sought for. As an instructive mode of presenting the condition of particular branches, original essays upon them will be published, and their progress will be recorded by abstracts of the more important investigations in them. The department of general and practical chemistry will be under the charge of Dr.

John Griscom, James C. Booth, Professor of chemistry applied to the arts, in the Institute, and John F. Frazer, Professor of general chemistry in the Institute. Translations of interesting articles from the French and German, will be made by Dr. Griscom and Professor Booth. The notices of physical science including astronomy, will be furnished by Professor A.

D. Bache, and Sears C. Walker, Esq. The Committee have already incurred a debt to the last named gentleman of obligation for furnishing, in conjunction with Professor Kendall of the Philadelphia High School, the calculations of occultations for several years past.

These will still be furnished by the care of these gentlemen from their own calculations or those of Mr. Downes, of Worcester, Mass., whom the Committee are gratified to add to the number of their correspondents.To improve the mechanical execution of the journal, an entire new fount of type has been provided, by arrangement with the enterprising printer, Mr.

Jesper Harding.These improved arrangements entitle the Committee to ask, from the public generally, and especially from mechanics, an extension of the patronage heretofore given to the journal. The addition of one hundred subscribers to the present list would enable them to support entirely the expenses of the journal, which have heretofore been borne by the Franklin Institute at a small annual loss.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
