This path begins in the North Pacific, passes across the province of Old California, the Gulf of California, Intendency of Sonora, and the province of New Mexico, in the Republic of Mexico; through the southeastern part of Arkansas Territory (passing near Little Rock), across the Counties of Shelby, Tipton, Haywood, Madison, Carroll, Humphries, Dickson, Montgomery, and Robertson, in the State of Tennessee ; the Counties of Simpson, Warren, Barren, Greene, Washington, Mercer, Casey, Lincoln, Garrard, Madison, Clark, Montgomery, Bath, Fleming, Lawrence, and Greenup, in Kentucky; the Counties of Lawrence and Gallia, in Ohio; the Counties of Mason, Wood, Tyler, and Ohio, in Virginia ; the Counties of Greene, Fayette, Westmoreland, Indiana, Cambria, Clearfield, Centre, Lycoming, Bradford, aud Susquehannah, in Pennsylvania ; the Counties of Broome, Chepango, Otsego, Schoharie, Montgomery, Saratoga, and Washington, in the State of New York; the Counties of Rutland, Windsor, and Orange, in Vermont ; the Counties of Grafton and Coos, in New Hampshire; the Counties of Oxford, Somerset, Penobscot, and Washington, in Maine ; the north part of New Brunswick; the Gulf of St. Lawrence; the east end of the island Anticosti; the northern extremity of Newfoundland to the Atlantic Ocean; and ends about 450 miles S. W. of Iceland.

Path of the Contact of the Southern Limbs, or Northern Limit of the

Annular Eclipse. This path, whilst or the Continent, will pass about 35 English miles northerly of the path of the Centre, and very nearly parallel thereto; where the Moon is near the horizon, the distance will be about 50 miles.

This path will begin in the North Pacific, and will pass across the provinces of Old California, Sonora, Durango, San Luis Potosi, and Texas, in Mexico; the County of Opelousas, and the Parishes of Avoyelles and Concordia, in Louisiana ; the Counties of Wilkinson, Amite, Lawrence, and the south part of the Choctaw territory, in Mississippi ; the Counties of Greene, Perry, Bibb, Shelby, and the territory of the Upper Creeks, in Alabama, the territory of the Cherokees, the Counties of Hall and Habersham, in Georgia ; Pendleton district in South Carolina ; the Counties of Haywood, Buncombe, Burke, Iredell, Rowan, Stokes, and Rockingham, in North Carolina, the Counties of Pittsylvania, Campbell, Charlotte, Prince Edward, Cumberland, Powhatan, Goochland, Hanover, Caroline, King and Queen, Essex, Richmond, and Westmoreland, in Virginia ; across the Potomac, the County of St. Mary, Chesapeake Bay, and the Counties of Calvert and Dorchester, in Maryland ; the Counties of Sussex and Kent in Delaware ; across Delaware Bay and the Counties of Cape May and Gloucester, in New Jersey, into the Atlantic Ocean; thence across Duke's County and the County of Barnstable, in Massachusetts; thence into the Atlantic again, thence across the whole length of Nova Scotia, the islands of Cape Breton and Newfoundland into the Atlantic Ocean for the third time, and will end about 600 miles east of Greenland.

To the inhabitants of the portion of the earth comprehended between the two preceding paths, the sun will appear to be eclipsed from 11 to 115 digits on his south limb, the magnitude of the eclipse being, greatest near the latter path. It will be observed, that a large part of the inhabited portion of the United States, and a still larger proportion of our principal cities, are contained in this space.

Path of the Central Eclipse for every Minute, from the Time of its

coming upon the Continent, in California, till it leaves the Island of Newfoundland, and for every Fifth Minute during the Remainder of the Time of its Continuance upon the Earth. Mean time Mean time Latitude/ Longitude

This path begins in the North Pacific, passes across the island of Cerros, the province of Old California, the Gulf of California, the Intendency of Sonora, and the provinces of New Biscay, Bolson de Mapimi, Cohahuila, New Santander, and Texas, in Mexico, into the United States, crossing the river Sabine at the place of its entrance into the lake of the same name; thence over the County and near the town of Opelousas, the northwest corner of the parish of West Baton Rouge, the County of Point Coupee, and the parish of New Feliciana, in the State of Louisiana ; across the Counties of Pike, Marion, Perry, Covington, and Wayne, in Missis. sippi ; the Counties of Washington, Marengo, Wilcox, Dallas, Autauga, and the territory of the Upper Creek Indians, in Alabama; the territory of the Cherokee and Lower Creek Indians, and the Counties of Fayette, De Kalb, Gwinnett, Hall, Jackson (passing a little north of the town of Athens), Madison, Elbert, and the southeast corner of Franklin, in Georgia ; the districts of Pendleton, Greenville, Spartanburgh, (passing a few miles southeast of the towns of the same name,) and York, in South Carolina; the Counties of Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Cabarras, Rowan, Randolph, Guildford, Orange, Caswell, and Person, in North Carolina ; the Counties of Halifax, Mecklenburg, Lunenburg, Dinwiddie (passing very near Petersburg), Chesterfield, Charles City, New Kent, King William, King and Queen, Middlesex, Lancaster, and Northumberland, in Virginia ; across the Chesapeake a little below the entrance of the Potomac, and the Counties of Somerset and Worcester, in Maryland ; across the southeast corner of Baltimore Hundred, in the County of Sussex, in Delaware, into the Atlantic Ocean; thence to Cape Sable in Nova Scotia, passing within 6 miles of the southeast part of the island of Nantucket (where, however, by the tables of Burckhardt, the eclipse will be exactly central), across Nova Scotia, the island of Cape Breton, the entrance of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and the island of Newfoundland into the Atlantic, where it ends about 550 miles E. S. E. of Greenland, and 500 miles southwest of Iceland.

The apparent velocity of the Moon, it will be observed, is quite unequal, being very great when she is near the horizon, then decreasing till the time of her true conjunction with the Sun in longitude, at which time her lor gitude is the same as that of the nonagesimal or of the zenith, and then increasing with an accelerated velocity till she comes to the horizon again, or till the time of the end of the central eclipse.

The Moon, at the time when the preceding path crosses the island of Cerros, apparently moves at the rate of about 45 miles per minute, but at the time of its entrance into the United States, in Louisiana, moves about 21 miles only per minute, which is nearly the least velocity; her velocity then begins, but very slowly, to increase, being in the State of Mississippi about the same; in Alabama about 23 miles; in Georgia about 24; in South and North Carolina about 25; in Virginia about 26, in Maryland and Delaware about 28; in crossing the Atlantic to the island of Nantucket about 33; off Nantucket about 35; in crossing the ocean to Cape Sable
