This is a most important discovery towards the improvement of Watches in geiic/al, but.eapecialty Sea Chronometers, having by its conslruclton greater advantages for the regularity, of performance than any yet made. It is well known ttaat the perfection of any piece of mecbani.stn cou-sists in its simplicily, particularly iu a VValcb. This method being very simple, friction is avoided; the coagulation of Ibe oil, which is the principal cause of ibe variation of Watches, is hereby much reduced; and Chronometers frequently vary oii their voyage from that very cause. Watches bithertn made have Four Wheels, viz. Second, Third, Contrite, and Balance Wheel. It bas been for several years A. Mesnre's study to find some method of reducing the number of wheels: after many labo^iuus and fruitless trials, at an immense expense, and with great perseverance, he baa now the satisfaction lo offer a Walcb, with ouly Two Wheels aujl Barrel (the motion wbeets excepleid.) This Walcb ia of the common size, and beats the half dead seconds; ibe dial is the same as olber Chronoiiielers. It has been'made and kept going several years; and by its performancehe has experienced such re-gulartly, as is seldom met wilb in a good borizuutalescapement, having been particularly noticed not lo make any seutiiile �wiiiHp� in llwi'first iWeive and'lsst'lwelve hours, it 9iai;1iis'iiitf!Btian .lo have italcen �iit � .pateiM, bat fcis sight being iippaired, and having bis Pelit.Or lo attend to,' he hW not liro� for othei- ebncerns, which is Ibe reason for bis wishing lo dispose of bis iov^utiou to anyone willing to obtain a Patent, and thereby secure to himself a fiKtunc, having no doubt, if properly ek^cuied, aud by adding a fuzee and expansion balance to make it complete, lltat it will answer fur Chronometers belter than any yet made.

Wilh overpowering feelings .wC' have to announce the death of thia our eminent fellow-ciiiz^'U, excelling iu rank, in connexions, and in influence; ihe Senior of one of the must ancient of all exi.'.tin'g Banks, ti .ffank fouiiiled a century ago by hi� grandfather, and handed down through hisreverrd . father, lale Ibe respected paliiarch of our city, a Bank that never once had bent to breeze or slorm.
