Subject relates to a dispute between two New York banks, the Canal Bank and the Watervliet Bank.
Pun on the phrase "All-cut-come-it" refers to a banker involved in the dispute, Theodore Olcott; hence, Olcott Comet.
The comic image depicts a bald man [Old Foozle] in a dressing gown seated on a stool at a window; he is looking through a telescope at two comets in the sky; one comet is labeled "Canal Bank" and the other "Watervliet." A second man [Showman Peter], mustachioed and dressed in a suit and broad-brimmed hat, stands behind the seated figure. On the wall of the room, hung upside down, is a framed picture of a building with the caption: Dudly Observatory.
