It may be necessary here to premise a few observations in explanation of the various eras introduced into this work, by which any year of these eras which sorresponds to a given year of the Christian era, or the year of the world, may de pasily discovered by the application of the rules of addition or subtraction. Thr Arzindrian cra is that chronological computation which was used by the De ople of Alexandria, who reckoord 5502 years before A. D. The Antiochian era is a correction of the preceding, made in the fourth century, by Pandorus, an typuan tolik, and used by the people of Antioch; and it differs from the Alexintrian only by subtracting ten years. The Constantinopolitan era is that used ay the Byzantine historians, and by the Greek church, which reckons 5103 years before Christ. The Julian Period is a factitious era, conceived by Joseph Scall. ger, to facilitate the reduction of the years of any given poch to that of another; and is the result of the lunar and solar cycles, and the indictions, multiplied by each other. Thus, 19, the lunar cycle, multiplied by 29, the solar cycle, produces $32. which multipled by 15, the cycle of indictions, amonte to 7990 yeare, which Sonstitute the Julian Period; in the first year of which all these three cycles begin together, and in the 1714th year of which falls the first year of the Chris. itan era. The Solar Cycle is a revolution consisting of 28 years; the Lunar Cycle, or Golden Number, of 19; the Cycle of Indictions, of 15 years; and the Dionesian Prind, of 532, being the product of the Solar and Lunar Cycles multiolled by each other, called also the Paschal Cycle, because in that period the Christian Passover, or Easter, a moveable feast, has gone through all possible variations, and the Solar and Lunar Cycles, Dominical, or Sunday Lellers, Pas
chal Terms, Epacts, New Moons, &c. all recommence exactly as they had done 532 years before. The Nabonassarean era takes its name from Nahonassar king of Babylon, and commences 747 years before A. D. The era of Iphitus, king of Elie, took its rise 884 years before Christ, in consequence of his restoration of the Olympic ganes. The Olympicds derive their origin from the institution of the Olympic game, which were celebrated every four years, at the time of the first ni w moon after the summer's solstice; and the first Olympiad 18 commonly reck. oned from the conquest of Olympia by Curobus, B. C. 776: it need scarcely be added, that each Olympiad consists of four years. The year of the building of Roin:, (A.U.C.) is an important era among the Roman historians, and commenced, according to Varro, which is generally received, B. C. 753; but according to Cato and the Fasti Consulares, B. C. 752; according to Polybius, B. C. 751; and according to Fabius Pictor, B. C. 747.
The Samaritan Pentateuch places the primordial epoch B. C. 4700; the Septuagint, 5872, the Talmudiat3, 5314; Scaliger,3930; Petavius, 3984; and Dr. Hales, 5111; who enumeratex above 120 various opinions on this enbject, the difference between the latret and remotest date of which is no less than 308. The generally received epoch of 4004, B, C.. however, seems to be as well established as any other; and it is worthy of remark, that the celebrated astronumer I a Place has obseried, that that year was distinguished as a remarkable astronomical epoch; the earth's orbit then coinciding with the line of the equinoxes, and consequently the true and mean equinoxes being united."
