The Grand Testimonial Medal and Honorary Membership from the Société des Beaux Arts, Paris, 1867.

The First Prize Medal at the International Exhibition, London, 1862.

Grand Honorary Gold Medal of Merit from His Majesty King Charles XV. of Sweden and Norway.

ACADEMICAL HONORS have been bestowed upon Messrs. THEODORE and WILLIAM STEINWAY, for their valuable inventions and manifold improvements in Pianos, by the Royal Academies of Sciences and Arts of Berlin and Stockholm.

THIRTY-FIVE FIRST PREMIUMS From 1855 to 1862 inclusive, since which time STEINWAY & SONS have not entered their Piano

fortes at any Local Fair in the United States.

STEINWAY & SONS beg to announce A GENERAL DEDUCTION in their prices, in accordance with the decline in the premium on Gold, and consequent decreased cost of imported articles used in the manufacture of Piano-fortes. In addition to their established styles of Piano-fortes, STEINWAY & SONS, in order to meet a long-felt and frequently-expressed want by persons of moderate means, teachers, schools, etc., have perfected arrangements for the manu. acture of an entirely new style of instrument, termed

THE "SCHOOL” PIANO, A thoroughly complete instrument of 7 octaves, precisely the same in size, scale, interior mechan. ism and workmanship, as their highest-priced 7 octave Pianos, the only difference being that this new style of instrument is constructed in a perfectly plain, yet exceedingly neat exterior case. These new instruments will be supplied to those who desire to possess a thoroughly first-class “Steinway Piano,” yet are limited in means,

AT EXCEEDINGLY MODERATE PRICES. STEINWAY & SONS also desire to call special attention to their new

Patent Upright Pianos,

With Double Iron Frame, Patent Resonator, Tubular Frame Action, and new soft Pedal, which are matchless in volume and quality of tone, and surpassing facility of action, whilst standing longer in tune and being more impervious to atmospheric influences than any other Piano at present manufactured. Price Lists and Illustrated Catalogues mailed free on application. EVERY PIANO IS WARRANTED FOR FIVE YEARS,

Warerooms, First Floor of Steinway Hall, 109 and 111 East Fourteenth Street, (Between 4th Avenue and Irving Place.)

To Get Correct Time. When the shadow cast by the Sun reaches the noon-mark, set the clock at the time given in calendar pages of this Almanac, in the column of “Sun at Noon-mark," and it will be exactly right. If a meridian line is used instead of a noon-mark, the passing the lines by the Sun's center is the moment for setting the clock. Any skillful surveyor can make a noon-mark or meridian lines of small brass or copper wires. In doing so, he must allow for the variation of the magnetic needle from a true or astronomical north and south line. Morning Stars.

Evening stars,
Venus ( 6 ) from Sept. 26 to end of the year. Venus until September 26.
Mars ( 3 ) not this year.

Mars all the year.
Jupiter (44) from June 30 to October 22. Jupiter until June 30, and after October 22.
Saturn ( 3 ) until March 30,

Saturn from March 30 to end of the year.
