Through thy thoroughfares, T h, the mock sleichs are shcling, Thou the town of long dwindling art rising once more; In thy once noiseless alleys sweet sounds and sleigh riding, Have "used up" the dullness that reign'd there before.

Sjich sounds, by the gods, are truly bewitching, Makes the hair on my head stand as straichtr as a poker; A damsel exclaim'd, as with delight she was itching, Tf twas'nt extatic she wish'd Satan might smoke her. In addition to these we have rcuts upon routs, And parties on parties, and balls up on balls; While the streets are cnlivcn'd by bacchanalian scouts, Joy, levity and laughter resounds in the halls. Sweet day of chivalry that has long since departed, Thou art returning again with beau tv ten fold; With thv onz train of love stricken knights noble hearted, Young Quixottes just kindled from a spark ot the old.

Is it to be always thus? Will nothing ever be done to avert the dire ne cessity which our citizens are un der of leaving the State with their substance: And will not the above picture have the effect to deter from a hasty movement those who desire to emigrate to unknown regions, and who, possibly, may have to retrace their steps in prov ertv and distress, and drag -out their days in their native State. IVestcrn Carolinian. Thc Banks. The Legislature of Alabama have passed a bill for arresting 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 notes. By prohibiting small notes, we lay a safe foundation for our cir culation in solid gold and silver. What time is more propitious for the Revolution? Twenty two millions of specie have been im ported into the U. S. in the last vear and four millions in gold have been coined in our own mint since the last Summer. Richmond Enq. "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 :. .v:m afford a decree of light . c n ,L. t full moon, that its tail 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 author says: 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.

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 tion of sulphur, he. is deficient of that fluid it will rush into the eartli at that spot.

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.
