Mr. Editou: Your correspoudent at
Euochville-desires to know wheii Febru
ary had live Sundays in it before and
when it would happen again, i It had
five Sundays in it in ,1824 aud 1352. It
would have live Sundays in it in PJ00, if
1900 were a leap year, but as it is not it
will -not kappeu until 1920, and then it
will occur at the end of every 28 years un
til 2100. it occurs whenever the r Domin

President Bernard, of Columbia Col
lege, has devised a rule that can be re
membered, whereby any one can deter
mine ou what day of the week any day of
anv month aud year will fall, from the
adoption of the Georgian Calender (Sept. :
14th, 1752). As it may be ot use to some
of vour leaders 1 will give it :
l'he first seven letters of the alphabet
are set opposite to the tirst seveuulays of
January If the Dominical letter is A
then the first ot January win ie auuuuy,
if B then Jau'v 2nd. &e. Thus this year
the Dominical letter was E, so the 5th of
Jan'y was Sunday. Ihe letters jior mo
first days ot the twelve mounts- cau ue
fouud from these twelve wordsj VAt Do
ver Dwells George Brown, Esquire, Good
Christian Fellow, and David j Friar."
What day did the 1st of November fall
ou this year! The letter for Nov. 1st is
I), for the' 2nd is E; &c.; now E being
the Sunday or Dominical letter this year,
Nov: 2ud fell oir Sunday and thelston
Saturday. The trouble is how to find the
Dominical letter. Bernard's rules are as
follows : "'-x
Divide the number of thccentury by 4,
if nothing remains the centurial -is 1, for
the remainders It3and3 the ccuturials
sue respectively 3, 5 aud 7. To the centu-
rial add half of the largest leap year iu
the incomplete century, and the comple
ment of the years iu,. excess of the leap
year Divide the sum by seven, and for
the remainders 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and ti the Do
minical letters'will be respectively A, li,
C, D, E and F, if there is uo remainder
the letter will be G.
The 'complement of the excesses fouud

The ceutiuial is 7, the hatf of the larg
est leap year is 10 ithat year being leap
year). In this case there is uo excess. So
7 aud 10 a.dded aud divided by 7 leave 3
for a remainder, which corresponds to C.
But as leap years have two Dominical
letters we-must take the following letter
D which is to serve until the end of i eb-

part of the year being D aud the letter tor
the 1st of February being D the first day

The rule for tiudmg the Dominical let

Sept. 1752), is the same except that tlie
ceuturial is fouud by adding 3 to the
nnmber of complete centuries andj sup

was leap year), which is 30 ; the sum which
is forty, leaves, when divided by seven, a
remainder 5, so the tilth letter E, was the
Sundav let'tex. Tho 1st day of August is
