first section , and all amendments
thereto to ten re ante1. AllnttcutpU
to extend the t mj were fruitless and
the motion of 5IK Vr'ood was adopted
and then the house went it to com
mittee , with Mr Covert , of New

question was upon Sir. Anderson's

Mr. AndeYaou argued that it would
relieve the fjovernmnntof the expense
to which it WFI now put by the nation

of interest un 343,000,089.
Mr. Fryu gave notice of ri substitute
for the BeclioK to increase the rate cf
interest to vH per cent. , and to isne
a ehort bond. The question vrati tnsn
taken on Mr , Andttr.cli"s amendment
and it was'reiacted yoas43naya 108.
MrDibrell's amendment , offered
on Thursday , imposing an income tax ,
and to apply the money arising from
the tax , to the payment nf interest on
the bonda , was decided to be nut of

Mr. Price , of towo , offered an
amendment to repeal the stamp lax
on b uk checks. It wat ruled out on
a point of order.
Mr. McLine , of Maryland , offered
a substitute to authorize thp iesiia rf
bonds of treasury certificates of de
nominations not less than ten doll-ra
and not exceeding fifty million del
lars , bearing'interest at Sjr pei cent ,
and payable Jn ten years , and not
more than ten million of said bonds
and certificates shall bs redeemed in
auy one fiscal year.
Mr. Wood made a point of order
against the substitute because it
charged a rate of interest which was
already fixed by the committee.
The chair aufttaiued Hio point of or
Mr. McLane appealed from the de
cision of the chair , and a discussion
was arislntr , when , at the suggestion
of Mr. Rindall , the point of order '
was withdrawn nd the vote was al
lowed on Mr. McLano'aBubsiitute. It
was rejected yeas 97 , nays 108
Mr. Fryo said his substitute em
braced substantially the same proposi
tions as were contained in McLane's ,
and he regarded tHe voio just taken
as an indication of tbo tcntiioenl of
tte house. Ho would nrt. therefore ,
ask -vote on his substitute.
The first section was then passed.
Mr. Carlisle , of Kentucky , moved
to add the following to the third sec
"Tho secretary of the treasury is
hereby authorised and directed to
make suitable rules and regulations to
carry this act into effect , provided
that the expenses of preparing , issu
ing , advertising and disposing of the
bonda shall not exceed one fourth of

Mr. Claflin , of MMJ. , moved to
make the amount one-half of one par
cent. He did not believe the bonda
could ba placed for a loss amount.
Mr. Carlisle said that one-fourth of
nno per cout. would give a cost of $1-
750,000 for placing the bonds.

The Comet Canard.
Special Dispatch to The Becv
WASEIXOTON , January 17 , 1 a. m.
AJengthy article has been going
the rounds of tha press , and recently
appeared In one of the city papera here ,
announcing the startling prediction
that there was great danger of the
world coining to an end smno.tiine
during this year. The prophesy was
a little more definite than the famous
prophesy of Mother Shiptonfor it detailed -
tailed the manner in which the earth's
destruction was to bo accomplished.
This was in brief ; that there is at
preeent in the unlverso a body , small
in size , by reason of its distance from
the sun , but almost inconceivably
dtiiiso by reason of the amount of mat
ter which ia crowded into it , which is
proceeding directly toward the sun.
tiome time during this year , the pre
diction alleged , thh great mass would
fall into our luminary , and the im
mense heat suddenly generated there
by would destroy all the higher forms
of life on the earth. It was very soberly
stated. The people at the poles , al
though their temperature would no
doubt be increased , might possi
bly survive this terrible heat , and
thus repeoplo the oirth. The event
thus detailed was called a cataclysm.
It was either true or not true , and to
settle the question , which certainly
possesses considerable Individual in
terest , a reporter has been obtaining
viewa of the government astronomers
on the subject. Prof. Holt , though
able to discover Mar's satellite , has
not yet found the comet , which ia to
play an important part in the destruc-1
tion of the world. "It is the first
time I have been made aware of the
impending danger , " ho said , aa he
glanced over the article which the re
porter showed him.
"But can there be any foundation
for auch a prediction ? "
"Only m this , that I have seen
somewhere a statement that tha comet
of 1812 was to return about this time ,
but wo knew nothing certain. Indeed
it is impossible to know anything
positive about comets. Wo can only
observe eucn a very small portion oi
their immense orbits , that wo cannot
estimate their retnrn with precision ,
but the likelihood of its falling into
the sun , or striking the earth , even
if it did return , u infinitely email. "
