Cotmmittee beg leave to remind the several
Societies, that the day fixed by the sixth
resolution for the next meeting of 'he Bible

o the Mwing tuatters, viz:

"The Baptist Confession of Faith says : ,
'immersion, or dipping the person in wa- b

Saill of which were evidently of Spanish or

1. A sound currency, regulated by the will
and authority of the nation.
2. An adequate Revenue, with fair protection
to American sudistry.
3. Just restrainte on the Execntive power,
embracing a further resriction on the exercise
of tie Veto.
4. A faithfuladrnintstration.of the publie do.

ceeds of the sales of it among all the States.
5. An hooet and economical administration
of the General Government. leaving puble of
ficers perfect freedom of thought and of the
right of suffrage ; but with suitable restraints
against improper interference in elections.
6. An atmendment to time Constitution.teuit
ing the incumbent of the Piesidential office to

Weather.-Ycsterday was delightful,
and it was the first day or the last month
that desreves the praise. A fresh air, with
a touch of the North and a sprinkling of
the silt sea, tud a bright sun. Septem.
ber has been so excessive wet, it has left a
legacy of caterpillars which are as bad as
the rains, and how much of the cotton
they may, in their discretion, see it to
leave for the planters, is at present, rather
dubious.- Charleston Mercury.
Spurious Coins.---We were shown yes
terdoy a couuterfeit purporting to be a
.lxican dollar-we presume of the same
spurious issue exposed some time since in
New Orleans. It is light in weight and
somewhat more dead in color than the
true coin and is probably worth about 50
cents to the dollar. The counterfcit is
admirably executed and might easily pass
undetected even by busineso men. The
date of the coin shown, us was 1832, and
its ap'pearancee almosi new.-Ibid.
