II. V 76 x 5665,23,8+, Answer, as required.

P. T. Solutions to the Arithmetical Problems,

Answered also by D. B. E. and A. F. I. Ques. As the velocities of the minute and hour hands of a clock are as 11 to

Arithmetical Queries. 1, it follows that

1. Required to place the nine digits in As 11:5::1: 27 min. 161*rsec. past 5, such a position as to take their cube Ans.

root without a remainder ? D. B. E., W-c. Cen Vil.

P. T. 2. If the diameters of the greater base of

a cylindrice are 20 and 15 inches, and Answered also by A. F. at L-f-d, N. diameters of the less base 12 and 9 in., Y., S. W. R. of B-n, D. B. E. W.C., T. how much in length will make a solid M., and A. W. C.

foot?

P. T. TO PATRONS AND CORRESPONDENTS. We again have the pleasure of presenting our annual tribute for the fiftieth year, being heretofore unprecedented in ihe annals of our country. (Sée 2d page.)

B. Jr.'s puzzle is left quite in the dark; we should think it would compare well wità My Lord Dexter's " Pickle for the Knowing Ones."

A. A. Jr.'s puzzle is quite too prolix and dilatory for our purpose.

T. M.'s enigma is destitute of a key, which always is expected to accompany an such productions. We perceive he has but little acquaintance with the Muses; be had better cultivate a better understanding with them, before he undertakes to write again. Mathematical queries we have quite a supply of. J. W.'s problems are rather unimportant,- have not room to spare.

L. T. seems to abound in Charades, which are rather vague and pointless ; besides, the length of the metre is such as we should not choose—we prefer 7 or 8 syllables.

Our friends C. W. and A. L., for corrections of Courts in a neighboring state and College Vacations, are gratefully recognized.

We have three or four communications for which we are taxed with postage, and of course no notice will be taken of. I wish it to be distinctly understood, all communications must be made by the first of August, and post paid, to insure an insertion.
