The Carre niy Question
Both Ilnuses of the Winissippi Legiilatare
nays the Missisiippinn) have adopted the
rehjolntion introifueed by Senator Quin, of
Laprence, a: king Congrau to make Confed
i rate DOtei a legal tender. 't think the
inbltituta submitted by Mr. Powe of Jusper,
in the Home, would have bad a more salutary
effect upon the currency than the resolution
.is it stands. This substitute requested Con
i;ress to enact a law making the future issuns
f the Treasuary a legal tender. This would
ertainly hare bad the effect of retiring the
UOttl already in circulation nd thus Iessen
mg the Tolunie of the currency, which seemi
to be a great financial desideratum.
COUNTHIFBIT NoTl. We lee that coun
terfeit twenty dollar notes have been put in
circulation in Alabama. They purport te
have been issued in June, when it is alleged
that no platea of that denomination bare
ever been issued during that month. The
engraring is said to be most excellent and
fully equal to the genuine. Another means
of detecting the counterfeit. ayi the Mont
gomery Adnrtinr, ii by observing that at
the close of the last line a comma takes the
place of a period.
The Legiilature of Alabama ieem to
find as much difficulty in chooiiag a Senator
ai our Legislature did. On Saturday week the
two Bouses again met in joint convention and
returned balloting. The namei of Mr. Seibeli
and Mr. Clay were withdrawn. The laat
ballot had on Saturday resulted ai follows :
Fitzpatrick, 52; Curry, 51; Brooks, 3; It. H.

Commercial Intelligence.
Prom the Chicago Times, Nov. 20.
Gold was up again to-day, and market val
ue were more or less excited. Unlesi a little
more ease in the money market the volume
of business is gradually increasing, but still
there is a good deal of difficulty in obtaining
money for purely speculative puraoies, and
transactions in the produce market! are not
so extensive as they would be if tbe large
number ef tinall operator! could command
what money they desired. The rise in gold
serve to stimulate the speculative demand
for nearly all .articles of produce and mer
chandiee. The New York and other eastern
markets are firm throughout, and the up
ward tendency in prices, which set in a week
or ten days ago, has continued np to the
present time without ary abatement. There
is at the present time, and we do not see how
the future can bring any remedy, a large de
mand for gold for export, and, while we look
for the Market to be characteriied with
wide fluctuations, the inevitable tendency
seems to be towards a steady advance in
rates. In this connection we desire to call
attention to an article under our financial
head taken from the last National Intelligen
cer, in which it it shown that there is a bal
ance against the eountry of at least $80,000,
000, whicb must be cevered by gold ship
ments, as England will not want ef bread
stuffs to the extent of makiag up this balance
or anything like it.

ihai if "Union" meant nothing but thia
an abandonment of national power to
maintain slavery Union was a lie and rt
idation. f Ureal cheering, j All over
New Kujilainl, and all over ihe S'ate f
New Votk and , through Pciinaylv ania,
clear t u t ! 1 1 very banks of the Ohio, biases
and excreations met this doctrine, and
from 1850 t" I860 the cry was "Union
is good if it in Union f r justice and fr
liberty ; but if it is Onion fjr slavery,
tlifii il is thrice ucctirst'd."
The American who would stigmatize
in England the " Union as a lie and deg-

Tbe Tallest Girl in the World.
One of tbe most extraordinary speci
mens of humanity probably ever endow
ed with "moital coil" is now at Barnum
Museum, and will appear on iMonday.
This is a young lady of seventeen year
oi ago who has reached the amazing
height of eight feet one ineh. and is still
growing. The giant boy, who is now at
Barnum's, is eight feet high, the girl sur
passing him by an inch ; but as the
height of tbe softer sex averages a
much smaller figure than that of men, the
contrast presented in the case of tbe girl
is still more marvelous. Her face, ber
armys, her fingers, ber feet are in proper"
proportion to ber great height tienseudT
out in size and length. Her foot is fifteen
inches long, and its width exceeds the
length of many a lady's dainty pedestal.
The fingers are huge. An ordinary arm
by the side of this lady's looka puny and
stunted. Her knee reaches nearly to the
hip of-a person of an ordinary height.
She is agreeable and pleasant in manner
quite handsome for ber size, and well
proportioned. A lady of usual height i
standing besides her seemes the veriest
