Thc Banks. The Legislature
of Alabama have passed a bill for
the circulation of bank
notes under 5.
The Senate of New York have
also passed the bill prohibiting the
circulation of small notes, ayes
25, noes 2.
Thus we go We hope the next
step will be to arrest the circula
tion of all notes under $10 un
til we reach the minimum of $20
By prohibiting small notes, we
lay a safe foundation for our cir
culation in solid gold and silver.

"The approaching Comet.
Lieut. R. Morrison of the Royal
Navy has published a most inter
esting work upon this magnificent
phenomenon, which is expected
to be seen in the course of the next
year, 1S35, between the months
of May and August, in the con
stellation of Ursa .1 laj or. Lieu
tenant Morrison states that it will
be far more splendid than the one
of 1S11: some 'writers affirm that

will extend over forty decrees,
pp i " hjcimv uc iuus
to the dillerent appearances ot
this comet for the last six hundred
years, showing that in the comet
pears, these phenomena prevailed
j to a great extent. The warmth
of last w inter and the violent
winds, as well as the great heat of
the late summer, are attributed to
the approach of the Comet. The
Mlelying on the correctness of
similar phenomena the end of
1835, early, or early in 1S3G,
'may be expected to be remarka
ble for some one or more very ex
tensive earthquakes. 1 he winters
of 1S3G or 1837, will bring a frost
such as has not been equalled for
at least twenty years. The parts
of the earth which we anticipate
will suiter most, are those situated

J are of course, always, subject to
; the electrical phenomena ofeartii-
i quakesjjecause the frequent inter
nal changes which the combustion '
continually in action creates, must
necessarily produce a derange
ment of electricity. And if, while
the comet is near the earth, over
charged with electricity, as at tht
same time it was in perihelion in
145G, if there be any internal cav
ity of the earth, by which combos

Reverend Rioters. -A late
London paper says, "a true bill

the Grand Jury of Surry, against

the Rev. Cornelious Griffin, at a

$SA woolly headed ebony ad
junct of the abolitionists, and
amalgamationists, recently at
tempted to abduct a white female
in Albany. At a late hour of the
night he seized one of two white
females walking in the streets,
and attempted to drag her in a
sleigh which he had in readiness.
Her screams alarming one of the
watch, he came up, and with his
little bit stick which he carries, he
tapped thick lips gently on the
head, who fell down, when he was
seized by the collar and carried to
the watch house. He justified
himself by saying, he thought
turn-about was fair play, and he
had as much right to kidnap a
white woman as white people to
steal black. The reason of the
dark philosopher, not being suffi
ciently cogent, he was sent to pri
son to scan over his conduct, and
if possible, to arrive at a some
what different conclusion. ib.
