CALENDAR, 1892.

CHRONOLOGICAL VIEW OF THE YEAR 1892. The year of the Vulgar or Christian Era 1892 corresponds to the 1896th from the Birth of Christ; with the latter part of the 116th and the beginning of the 117th of the Independence of the United States of America, which was declared Thursday, July 4, 1776; with the 6605th of the Julian Period; with the close of the 1261st of the Persian Era, which began Tuesday, June 19 (N. S.), 632 A. D. (the years of this era begin now on the 29th of August); with the year 1309-10 of the Hegira, or Mohammedan Era, the year beginning July 26; with the 1340th of the Armenian Ecclesiastical year; with the 1608th of the Era of Diocletian or Era of Martyrs; with the 1930th of the Era of the Cæsars, or Spanish Era; with the 1937th of the Julian Era, or since the reformation of the calendar of Numa Pompillius, by Julius Cæsar; with the 2204th of the Grecian Era of the Seleucides; with the 2639th of the Babylonish Era of Nabonassar, used by Hipparchus and Ptolemy (this era dates from Thursday, February 26 [N. S.), 747 B. C., according to chronologers, or 746 B. C., according to astronomers, the year contains 365 days only); with the 2645th (according to Varro) of the old Roman Era A. U. C.; with the 2668th of the Olympiads or the fourth year of the 667th Olympiad (4 years), commencing in July, 1892, if the era of the Olympiads is ixed at 775% years before Christ; with the 3907th of the era of Abraham, used by Eusebius; with the 4240th from the Deluge (according to Usher and the English Bible); with the 2552d of the Japanese Era; with the 4529th of the Cali Yuga or Hindoo and Indian Era, which dates from the Deluge ; with the 4289th of the Chinese.

The year 1892 is the 5652d year from the CREATION OF THE WORLD, according to the Minor Era of the Jews, or the 6251st according to the Greater Rabbinical Era of the Jews, and with the 6120th according to Eusebius; the 5836th according to Scaliger; the 5896th according to Usher and the English Bible; the 7384th according to the Antiochian and Abyssinian Eras; the 7394th according to the Alexandrian Era, and the 7400th according to the Era of Constantinople, used by the Byzantine Historians. The age of the world is variously estimated by historians, there being some 140 different eras fixing the date of that event. Julius Africanus, following the Septuagint version of the Bible, which is the most reliable authority for chronology known, makes the Creation to have taken place on the first of the Jewish month Tisri, 5508 B. C., or 7,400 years ago, while geological chronologists run the figures into the millions, basing their estimates upon the thickness of the earth's crust and the rate of formation of rock deposits.
