13 ; ; PREFACE. In presenting the 100 Years Anglo-Chinese Calendar to the public, the compiler claims no originality for his work, inasmuch as, since the year 1832,* Calendars in somewhat similar form have been yearly issued from the press in China ; but, as it is doubtful if a complete series of these exists, and as, in the transaction of business, whether official, legal or commercial, between Foreigners and Chinese, and in the study of Chinese History which is now so intimately connected with foreign nations, a knowledge of the corresponding dates is quite necessary, it is hoped that this compilation will be found useful, and especially so in referring to the date of past events, and in deciding the precise day, according to the Chinese and Christian Calendars, on which they occurred. Commencing with the last quarter of the past century (1st January, 1776), the Calendar embraces the peiiod when the first British Embassy (Lord Macartney's in 1793) arrived in China. For convenience sake the Calendar has been divided into 10 parts, each embracing a period of ten years of the Christian era and ends with the close of the 14th year of the present reign Tung-chi, the 25th January, The Tables, extending to some 260 pages, enable both foreigners and natives to arrive more readily and with more correctness, at the dates of their respective Calendars, than they can by the use of the Table of the Sexagenary Cycle. We give in an Appendix the Table of the Cyclic Characters : we have not used this Table, however, in our compilation, but have checked our dates by the Table of the 28 ' ' hung (houses or constelations). As we completed the printing, we were kindly furnished by Baron Johannes Von Gumpach, with his calculations of Chinese New Years' Days ; and were glad to find that our dates entirely agree with those ascertained by him astronomically, and by his permission we give in the Appendix a Table showing the Chinese New Years' Days for 1876 to 2000 A.D. Shanghai, September, P. L. j * The late Mr. John Robert Morrison was the first compiler of the Anglo-Chinese Calendar and it does not appear that previous to 1832 the comparative statement of the correspondence of Chinese and Christian dates, in this form, had ever been attempted.

280 TABLE OF THE SEXAGENARY CYCLE FOR THE YEARS OF THE PRESENT DYNASTY, AND EXTENDING TO THE YEAR 1,

281 CHINESE DIVISIONS OF TIME. We give on the other side the Table of the Sexagenary Cycle, for the years of the present dynasty, and have numbered the characters 1 to 60 to show the order they follow. It must be understood, however, that though it has been said that "this Table forms an Index by which the year of the Christian Era may be ascertained for any year of the Chinese Cycle of Sixty;" unless those using it are cognisant of the Christian months and days in which the Chinese New Year begins, it is apt to confuse, especially if the days sought are those in January and February, in one of which months the first of the New Year invariably occurs. With reference to the Cycle of the Chinese we quote the following, from Dr. S. Wells Williams' " Chinese Commercial Guide, " published at Hongkong, 1863, page 288 : "The cycle of sixty years is the foundation of the Chinese chronology, and its application to the years, months, and days has done much to preserve their historical records from confusion. According to the received account, the Celestial Sovereign invented two series of characters, one of 12 branches + 2H yfc sjiih 'rhchi, and the other of 10 stems ~ ~l shih Jam. The twelve branches are likewise called jfy Jfc& ti chi, or terrestial branches, and each one is supposed to be connected with a different animal, which is named upon them as here given ; and these same animals again have some mysterious influence upon persons born in the hour over which they rule. The Mongols, Japanese, Siamese, and Annamese apply the same animals to the same sign. The twelve zodiacal signs, which comprise in twelve equal spaces the 28 kung or houses through which the moon travels in her monthly course along the ecliptic, are also named after the branches :

282 ; The twelve branches are used to designate the twelve hours of the day, which begins at 11 o'clock p.m., and are on this account usually known as horary characters; they also indicate the twelve points of the Chinese compass, as follows : 11 to P.M da; at 3rd watch) 4th 5th (J^^P forenoon) CK^P afternoon) m\ 1st watch) 2nd -^ or N. N. N. E. E. -JJ % E.N.E. N. JJP E. jg E. S.E. f E. g, S. S. E. f E. ^ % S. s. s. w. t w. 4*» w. S. W. I s. g w. J$ W. N. W. I N. lg N. N.W.f N. To express European hours, it is enough to add j? kiau and j clang to the characters ; thus -^ ching tsz' is midnight, ^ -J fcwwt chau is 1 o'clock a.m. and so throughout; but these when mentioned are more usually numbered in imitation of the foreign mode, which has become widely known through the use of watches. A table for the convenience of natives, to show the correspondence of the foreign hours is often inserted in their almanacs. The ten stems are also called ^ ^ tien kan, or heavenly stems ; they are sometimes named and described after the five elements, according to the peculiar philosophy of the dual powers current among the Chinese, each element being exhibited in its yin and yang state, corresponding to its passive and active condition. Each of them is regarded as destroying its predecessor, and producing its successor, in a perpetual round. 1 is allied to wood, and represented by a growing tree,, a hewn timber;

283 times, and the twelve branches five times, as shown in the table. This was in the year b.o. 2G37. The Chinese have never kept up a serial numbering of the cycles, and have no longer chronological period than 60 years. Some native authors begin the reckoning with the first year of Hwangti's reign, b.c. 2G97, making 7G cycles at the end of a.d ; De Guignes follows this calculation ; but Chinese chronologers mostly take the later date of b.c. 2G37, which makes the 75th cycle and the 4500th year of their annals to end with The year b.c. 2G37 is placed by Hales as 518 years after the deluge, and about 80 years before the confusion of tongues. Some again begin their chronology with the first year of the 7th cycle, in the reign of Yau, b.c. 2277; Pere Eegis adopts this date." The following Table shows the years in which the 7G Cycles (up to the present time) commenced: CHINESE WITH THE YEARS OF CYCLES. THEIR COMMENCEMENT. Cycle

The wide use of clocks and watches has introduced the terms Mh $g tien-chung, "stroke of the clock," for the hour; tsit and n f IM mien-li for minute. The days of a month are always numbered consecutively from 1 to 29 or 30 ; the first ten days are called 1$]., Jf<JJ ^ yih, tsu 'rh, &c. The months are numbered from 1 to 12, except the first, which is called j H citing yueh; an intercalary month is denoted by prefixing j ] jun to the x^receding number, as ^ -^ ^ i.e. of 29 days is called A\ M sidu yueh, and of 30 days -4r J^ intercalated sixth month.

When an intercalary month occurs, they are still reckoned as usual ; but the intercalation is made so that only one term shall fall in it. The equinoxes and solstices, and some of the festivals, are regulated by the tsieh ki. Some of them contain 14, and others 16 days, but their average length is 15 days. Their names and approximate positions in our year are here given ; one or another of them change a day back or forth from year to year, and do not regularly fall on the same day.
