Our Wandering Capitol

The capital of the United States has not been located at Washington  continually since the Declaration of  Independence , as many would suppose. In the earlier days the national capital was established in whatever city Congress assembled. The following places bear the honor at the dates named .

Philadelphia .... from September 5, 1774 until December 1776

Baltimore .... December 20 , 1776 to March 1777

Philadelphia .... from March 4, 1777 to September 1777

Lancaster , Pa. from September 27, 1777 to September 30, 1777

York , Pa. .... from September 30, 1777 to July 1778

Philadelphia .... from  July 2 , 1778 to June 30 , 1783

Princeton , N.J. .... from June 30 , 1783 to November 20, 1783

Annapolis , Md. from ..... November 1783 to November 1784

Trenton , N.J. from .... November 1784 to January 1785

New York from .... January 11, 1785 to 1790

when the seat of government was changed to Philadelphia , where it remained until 1800 , when it was finally moved to Washington . Thus it is that nine different cities and towns have figured as the capital of our country.

To Measure Corn in the Crib

Two cubic feet of dry ear corn will make one bushel of shelled corn . To estimate quanity of shelled corn you will get from your crib , multiply length by the breadth by the height ( all in feet ) and divide by two. If the walls of the crib are slanting , take the breadth half way between the top and bottom of the pile.
