published in a single work. It is given in a series of tables, presenting comparative views of the articles of import and export, tonnage, duties collected, costs of collection, drawbacks, bounties, &c., for a period of 22 years. The materials for these tables, being taken from the customhouse returns, are deserving of full credit for accuracy and completeness. An article commenced last year is continued in the present volume, giving the titles and abstracts of all the public laws passed at the last session of Congress. The subject will be resumed in each successive year, so that the series of volumes will give a full view, in the shortest compass, of the general legislation of the country. The register of colleges, theological, medical, and law schools, &c., has been revised and corrected with great care, and is quite complete. The presiding officers of these institutions will confer a favor upon the editor and the public, by forwarding to him a copy of their annual catalogue.
Under the head of the Individual States will be found a very full view of their debts and finances, and many interesting details respecting the common schools, internal improvements, and charitable establishments. The American Obituary for the year is the only full record of the kind preserved in the country, and great care is taken to render it complete and accurate. The information respecting the States of Europe, especially Great Britain, is derived from the latest authorities, and is complete enough for all common purposes of reference.
The editor again offers his best thanks to the correspondents of the work, and respectfully solicits a continuation of their kindness. Any person who may notice errors in any part of the Almanac is earnestly requested to communicate them to the editor, for correction in the subsequent volume. But information to be used in the work for the next year must be received by him before the 1st of August. Cambridge, Mass.
