Unb'l withia a few yaar, the trirnce of coob terieitio; hat beea ao impcrfertly undentoml, aad the tporioa paper to rlumtily executed, that none bat poor Judgee of bank - paper, and comparatively bat few of these, were impoJ apoo but withia a few month, th cajo bat beeo greatly altered. Engrar:agt are now to accurately execated, and signal urea imitated with ach practsioo, that the best judge, and frequently the bank themaelres, hart beea de - ceiled. That, no person, unlet he make th (tody of baok - paper bit basinet or 'profession, can safely pay away, or receive, the paper cur. rency of our country. Thb deplorable tte of thing certainly ren der vigilance among our police officer in large town, and the officer and minister of juttice in the country, doubly necessuy. Indeed, it i much to be regretted that before thia late period, some general and uniform system or plan of operations has not been a - dopted throughout the United States, for the detection and apprehension of counterfeiters. nd again, on the part of the Hanks, as they are all interested in a great degree, it is very singular that some method hat not been devi sed to render the counterfeiting of any of tluir bill extremely difficult, if not impracti cable. It really appears to us. that tf the Hants would Macto some urhl erstand ing up on this point, a method could without difficul ty be devised in the manufacture of bank notes, tbat would place it in the power of ev ery one to detect erxirious paper at the first glance. The police of (his city deserve much credit or their txertiooi to stop the manufactore and circulation ef counterfeit paper, and also to bring villains to justice. But we think it not improper to give this body a word of caution repectui; the gents employed npoo this businret. One per son we know, who wa in the employ of the po lice, orof a certain association in this city, while out upon a mission to detect couuterfciter. and to intercept spurious paper, was de terted at tlbany a few montht since, in attempting todu pew of tome of the " fruits of bts labour'; foi hi own advantage. On being apprehended, he plead hi occupation" in extenuation, and procured letters from hit employer but the evidence oi hit guilt wa strong and conclusive, For ourselves, w are perfectly tatisneJ our laws for punching counterfeiter, are not tuffi cicntly severe. We are sensible that with rooie, recommendation fe encourage Ike cull are , hemp, will be received as rather nnpnpnlar ; but we are eanatlv tcnsiMe. Uurt the reruunn - lion of this article mast be tnrrearuf, in order to produce a rfiartuiuUon of crime. We mentioned yesterday an account in the laondon papers, that several members of the Tammang Order, have lately been exhibiting upon the linndon boards. It would seem from Ihi, and from the circumstance that John Bull Has recently sent at two of hi most exquL - ite and captiraiing kiogera, t'htlippa and Incledon, that the manager of our theatres and those of Lon - J'w, have negodated an exchange of performers. In thia treaty of exchange, we are Inclined to U.lok we have Ilia advantage of John for once, and not only so in the way of raft, but it gives us stroog ground to qaestinn hit taste and mancal refinement. For while we have been listening in rapture and extaciee lo the most tweet aod enchanting melody, John ha been roaring and making his lusty side at the tbnndtr of tha ft uiirub dance the thrill war - whoop of the Sagamvrt, aad the horrid grimace of the Chtluut or PtOaveolUcmit.

I noticed an inquiry, whether the Alitna Ffontare (which ha lately been ao much extolled in the public print, at a remedy for hydrophobia,) I indigenous or not ? If there na Daea any reply lo Uus question, I have overlooked it, aod I there fore now take it upon me to give an answer. Michaox mention a plant a growing in Canada, which be consider a ruecie of A htm Plan (as. The character which he rivesof it, differs materially from the character commonly given of ine curppean piaui. Ainruruoerj, in rua logae, mentions Alitma Piantago as common in Pennsylvania, lligelow, in hi Florula Bostooi - enai, mentions Aluma Piantago a common in Boston. The character which ha fives of it U a mere transcript of (he character girtn in Euro - iiean works of their plant. Pursh mentions a plant under lb name of Aluma trnutlu, which he tells ntuthesara asMK:hsuxsj (na'a - lago, aod for wbichhe copies M irhaua'i charac (er. lie edits Uiat it it specifically distinct frefm the European, hnd fells us that it ia found from Canada to Florida. . hluott afreet with rartb, adopts his name, tneetiier with Michaux's cha racter, and tells us that he finds it from Carolina to Florida. ' Mr. itabnesque, I think u some pe nodical publication, has cornmeu'ed upon this plant, and confidntly assures us, that it it une quivocally a dulinct species from th Euroiean oue, and he has given it the preferable name of j Aluma tubeordnta. There can be no doubt, Mr. Editor,, lint Muhlenberg aad Bigelow in ton. I the ram flant. Thus it appears tbat the Aluma Plantar of European writer t$ not indtgauut iu the U. c tales. In external phyaica I character, oar Aluma Sub - ctrdulo, or Trivialu, is, however, very nesrlj allied to th foreigu Secies in question ; butnot - witlnt.iudini; this, fas the genus ia a poisonous one,) let your reader beware of mbititoting one for the other, without ample investi'atioo ol the qualities of each. The fact is, thai we have mtuy American plants, which the early writers apon our botany supposed cither to b identical witn, or varieties of, exotic species ; which, on further examination, are found to be not only botanirally tU - tinct, but widely different m me - Jici'ial iowcr. For initancc, the GratioU eu - rra of Muhlenberg was supposed to be a mere variety of Graliota rirtna'a of Linncus and in external haracter they are certainly much a - like. The European plant is, however, a drutic emetic and catbartic, whereas tha American appear to have no meJicinal virtues whatever. Tho writer of these remarks ht used it to a great extent, with no more effect than would have followed the um of so much pig - weed. The European Alarum and the Canadian Botanists tell as, are scarcely to be distinguished by external marks 1 and yet the former purges and vom:ts violently, whiU tho latter at a mild aromatic - , that may be taken to a great extent, without any unpleasant effect. The American F'e - ratmm unit was considered by Michaux to lie identical with the European reratrvm cueun and in botanical character they are unquestionably nearly allied; and yet 1 have good reason to conclude, that they uuTer materially In medi cinal power. Tha European May - weed, tho as lar as I know, not supposed to uBer botaaicai - ly from tha American, is capable of blUtoring, whilst ours certaioly ha no ucb property. Ihirs Hm thM - earticohM - , Mr, rxhtor, by way 01 caution to yoar reader I and I have a - voided giving any deacriptioh either of the Euro pean or American 'Jfiuma, becaue none bat scientific, and to a ce'rtain extent exerfnced, botanists, know howo appreciate the full force of terhuicnl botanical term and beranse, in pccies nearly allied to each other, people in ge neral, with tba best description before them, can not discriminate.

W. nnd coing at the rata of a 1 - 2 knots, we immediately look ia oar royal and steering sails, intending to alter tay course to the Sooth, being arter otiiiged lo luff and bear away for the islands of ice, which lay about as. While in the act of handling the sail. 1 discovered an obiect twice at high as oar witst beads, appearing like a trafer tpnd, bat did not think it possible that aa bland of ice should be so high. i immediately ordered the Btim a - weather, hoping to gat Ihe vessel before the wind, and clear of the danger, whatever it might be bat before thu could be done, we wuuu ourselves completely surrounded, and covered by this immenM mountain ol ice, wnicn project ed over our heads, so that the water, which run from it in streams and rivulets, ftdl over the vessel on th opposite side ; and although' our steer ing tail booms were rigged out, on the tido next the ice, making a ibstauce ot 7 tee I, irom trie centre of tbe brig, they did not touch if. Fortunately e succeeded in getting clear. and in lets than live minutes, and while so near that the rtbouuding of the water reached the vessel, this uoinense body of ice fell over direct ly towards us, with a crashing uoie resembling the heaviest thunder, and opntiuaed for the space of a minute aod an half. . - I shall always attribute tbe taring of the brig to the steady firmness and active exertion of the mate and crew, who have merited my sincere gratitude."
