Caused his head to ascend from the .bedclothes, with a
puir of eyes enlarged to the dimensions of -spectacles,

."Compose yourself, my dear woman," cried Slash,
"lao,' during this scene, had been examining his deadly
a ;alpels. "This little matter will soon be over-comne-y
c,,me," and, taking a pinch of snuff, the doctor made-
t1,0o strides towards the bed.. ?
Singe had already clenched his right fist courageous-
] and, upon this movement -on the part of Slash, was
j At on the point of dealing a blow, aggravated by tef-
r r-a blow which might have annihlnated -the pursy *
i dividual, when the alarmed wife darted forward, and
Sckew him from the bed by the skirts of his coat.
"You shall not, you nu-m t not do it," she exclaimed: .
My. poor husbandalways made me swear" (here Singe
l ->dded.approvingly) "that nothing of that sort should

"Well, madam," cried Slaqh, in dudgeon, packing up
ri s instruments, ,4 thought you a woman of'more sense.
V;e did think of raising a handsome subscription for
y:m, but now-good-night, ,Mrs. Singe;" and the doc-.
t r turned, and abruptly left)-tle house.:
' The extent of relief caused to the barber by this hasty
ij treat of Slash, cannot be described. Big drops ofper-
fjiration had rolled down his cheeks, making deep fhr-
if ws in the gum with which he h;id overlaid his physi-
-(jnomy, and, when his wife again came into his reg-

, All that night, as on the night previously, Singe in
,in courted the soothing influence of sleep, and with
l;avy, heart he arose in the morning to complete the
' tificial man with whose interment his hateful first ex,
lit riment in duplicity was tend.
* But this last day gave-tokens of; commencing pros-

Smrtest inhabitant of the town, recently dead, and Mr.

1I .ings needful in the afternoon and conclude the mourn-
"Be sure you don't let1 Pall and Grisly touch me,""
c, -ied Singeas the time';approached for the arrival of
ti Jese gentlemen, and& he, raised his finger as in warning.
';i rhey must not even see me. Tell them that you in-

dill them below to take a drop ofespirits; then youcan
_eal softly out, get the wig-block from under the bed,
r.-id place it in your stead, and then, you can take the
1l',ace of the wig-block under the bed."
6"Ha ha a good idea," cried the barber ; "two heads
"e better than one. It shall be so. But what now ?"
' continued, in a rage-, as a knock at the door intruded
i ?on his ear. "It isn't time for the undertaker-yet.-
; "Only think," said the wife, who returned presently,
'raring a basket in her arms, "Mr. Furlong has sent
j i four bottles of wine, and two savereigns, and desir-
c'd the messengerto assure me that he waos deeply griev-
ed at your death."
"No! has lie though ?" and a tear stole into the eye
,. 'Singe. "That man, Kezia," lie continued, "was the
*ly friend I had in the town. Let us, then, sincerely
' ink his good health." -
41 Well, f think a drop would do you good." said the
,. )mplaisant'wife, uncorking a bottle; and, as the bar-
r swallowed three or four bumpers, a, pleasing emo
on took possession of his soul. From` a fanciful dream
i ito which he had subsidedhe was too soon rudely sum-
toned by a peremptory knock,announcing the approach
r the undertaker ; and, leaping into the coffin, he laid
Himself quietly down, inwardly hoping that this last
- "ial would now speedily be got over.
After an interval, a step was heard ascending the
airs, which Singe, from long experience, kew to be
)at of 'his partner.
"What are you come for Y' said the barber, in a low
'hisper, arid as he arose his head was barely level with
; ,e side of" the coffin.
."For the corkscrew :.be quiets They are going to

"And why shouldn't I have something too Y' expos-
d iated the baroier. "Juat hand me over a .glass or two

;Singe helped himself to three further humpers in
iipid succession. "It will do me good/' said he, with
oblique glance at his wife,. "It will give me nerve

Screwing down the coffin with unwonr.ed speed,these
experienced adepts whipped up the poor barber, And
arrived him down stairs. (To be continued.)

RXP(URT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY ON
THE dTATE OF THE FINANCES.
17. DOJ the Mint and the Currency.
On thetsubject of the Mint and the new coinage, the
Department is gratified to state 'hat, by means of addi-
tional approriations, of improvements in machinery,
and of an ample supply of metal for coining, through
the fortunate remittances to tlis country of the French,
Spanish, and Neapolitan indemnities, in gold, more,
money has been, and will be, coined during tht present,
than. jn any previous year since the foundation of the
Government. The -whole amount, from the lst of Janu-
ary, 1836, to the 1st of November, 1836, has been in
gold, $3,619,440; in silver, $2,877,000, and, in copper,
$22,634. The su'ms transferred to the Mint in aid of
thee coinage, under a clause in the late deposit act,
have amounted to $700,000. When the annual report
of the Director is made on the 1st of anuary next, a
* Wremwinute account of all his operations, with his views
on these transfers, will be presented, accompanied by
such suggestions for further legislation on the subject
as his experience may lead him to consider useful.
The Mint and its branches would, in my opinion, be
more efficiently assisted by means of appropriations,
rather than mere transfers, to supply fully and promptly
the additional coinage, wkich the additional wants of
the community may from time to time require. The
Department is .still convinced, for reasons formerly
urged# on the consideration of Congress, that a gold coin
of one dollar in value might ,be very convenient and
useful to the public in many of the ordinary transac-
tions of society. The branch mints are all in progress,
and will probably be completed by June n6xt, and their
machinery at a still earlier day. The coinage in them
can commence immediately after their completion, if
the proper appropriations are m the mean time made,
.and the proper officers appointed.. The greatly increased
quantity of gold now existing in the country, amounts,
probably, to upwards of $15,000,000. For this, we are
chiefly indebted to the new valuation of our coin, though
some influence must be ascribed to the efforts made by
the General Government, and most of the States, to
suppress the circulation of small bills, as well as to the
favorable condition of our foreign exchanges since 1834,
and the policy of ordering home the foreign indemnities
in gold, and encouraging public payments to be, in part,
made with this kind of coin. At this time, the abun-
dance of gold here is such as to have produced increased
facility in distant specie operations, and it is becoming
more widely and beneficially diffused over the different
sections of the Union, to the greater accommodation of
most classes of people.,pa.rticularly in travelling and ex-
changes, and to the permnatnent improvement of our cir-
culating medium. The -amount of' gold coined since the
new waluation in 1834, has been near $10,000,000, and
has exceeded by one or two millions the whole amount
coined in the thirty-one previous years which had
elapsed, after the mistwentinto operation.- The amount
coined during the past twelve months alone is greater
than that during the- whole of the first sixteen years
after its establishment. Another important and gratify-
ing consequence which has resulted principally from
the present policy and system as to the currency, has
been, that, of all the gold coined before August, 1834,
amounting to about $12,000,000, probably not 1,000,000
dollars then remained in the country; of that small
amount only a very diminu'ive portion was in active
Indeed before 1834 our coinage of gold was of little
benefit except to purify and prepare the bullion for ex-
portation and for the use of foreign mints.
But the great mass of near 10,000,000 dollars, since
coined, undoubtedly remains in thecountry, and an in-
creased and increasing proportion of it, is in active and
convenient circulation. To promote this desirable end,
a larger portion than usual of quarter eagles has been
recently struck, and the whole number of gold pieces
of every kind made since the beginning of the present
year is about 1,00,0000, and almost equals the entire
number coined during the whole forty years previous
to the new coinage. The-change in the amount of specie
of all kinds in the country, during the last three years,
is highly gratifying, as'an earnest of a more solid basis
to a paper circulation already too large in proportion,
and as a security not only to those classes who are most
safe in the employment of a metallic currency fobr all
common purposes, but to the banking institutions them-
selves in periods of panic and unfavorable balances in
foreign trade. The whole specie in the country in Oc-
tober, 1833, when the public deposits were removed
from the United States Bank, did not probably exceed
30,000,000 dollars, and the portion of this in banks is
not supposed to have exceeded 26,000,000 dollars; while
now the whole specie in the country probably exceeds
73,000,000 dollars, and of that the portion in banks is
believed to be over 45,000,000 dollars, leaving 28,000,000
dollars in active circulation.
The paper circulation within the above period, has
also been greatly and :unfortunately enlarged. From
about 80,000,000 dollars, which was then the supposed
aggregate after deducting the large amount of 20,000,-
000 dollars for notes held in different banksit has prob-
ably risen, and chiefly within eighteen months past, to
about 120,000,000 dollars. But thllis increase, though
great, it will be seen is not half so great a relative in-
crease as has taken place in the whole specie in the
country, nor quite as great as has happened in the
specie in the banks alone. Computing that the paper
in active circulation in the UTnited States has generally
averaged about two to one of specie on hand in the
banks, and was, in October, 1833, about three to one,
or near 50 per cent. over the usual proportion, the com-
parative amounts of specie at the several returns, from
1833 to 1836, presented a very favorable change, had
become greater than the vsual proportion, and even
now, in all the banks, taken as a whole, are somewhat
improved since 1833. But they have much deteriorated
the last year and a half. Again: While the whole a-
mount, as well as proportion of specie in the country,
is much greater than it was two years Pgo, and the pro-
portion is ample for the paper circulation in several of
the banks and States; yet it is manifest that many in-
stitutions in other States have of late departed more
widely from the proper and safe proportions than their
pecular location or advantages for business, however
favorable, might warrant on sound banking principles.
As some illustration of the general changes on those
points since 1833, the following brief exhibit in round
numbers, and in a tabular form, prepared partly from
actual returns, and partly from estimates, may be useful.

At all these periods, except the firstof January last,
twenty millions of paper have been computed as issued,
but not in-active circulation among the people, being
held by other banks, and so far considered as equiva-
lent to a deduction of a like amount from their own
circulation, liable to be redeemed in specie. On the 1st
of January last, the amount so held was about thirty
two millions, and in July last the active paper circula-
tion was also probably some millions .larger than it now
is. This exhibit makes the whole active circulation of
both paper and specie, about $6 50 per head of our
whole estimated population in October, 1833; about
650 in January, 1834; about $7in January, 1835;
about 8 50 in January, 1836; and near $10 at the pres-
ent time. Though this is a less proportion of circulat-
ing medium than is now usual in the countries of Eu-
rope. which are most commercial, and where specie is
more used than bills, yet it is a larger ratio than has
ever been supposed to be necessary in the United
States. considering the character of two or three ,mil-
lions of our southern population. The average here
has usually been about $6 per head. Nor has the
amount ever before 1811 been supposed much to exceed
$5, and at no time since has exceeded about $7 per
-head, except under the excessive paper issues towards
the close of the late warf ,y which, in 1816, it was es-,
timated to have reached $1 per head.
While our country.has, orf late years, become more

Most Daring Theft.-About noon, on Thursday, Dr.
David Bernis took from the counting room of the Cabot
Company at CabotvillV, a package of $2000 in Boston
bills, to carry to Chicopee Factory. He laid it under
the buffalo of his wagon seat,-rode a few rods and
alighted a few minutes, to make a call; when he re-
turned to his wagon the package was gone. Bills were
immediately issued offering $300 reward. In the
course of the night, a boy about 15 years old was ar-
rested on suspicion. He soon confessed that he was in-
formed of the theft by another boy, who took the pack-
age from the wagon; that they examined the money
together and concluded that it would not be safe to use
any of it at present. At the request of the other boy
he secreted it in the garret of the house where he lived.
The whole sum was found there. The boy was exam-
ined on Friday and bound over for trial. His accom-
plice is missing.-Springjield Rep.
The name of the incendiary arraigned for setting fire
to the Whittlesey house, in Fleet street, is Ephraim
Saunders, a colored man, who had exercised the profes-
sion of a barber in State street. We learn that it was a

man life, and shows the importance of our nightly
watch, through whose instrumentality the culprit was
detected. He stands committed for trial.

To thie Honorable JOHN HEARD, Esquire, Judge of the Court
of Probate, in and for the County of Suffolk, in the Common-
wealth of Massachusetts.
THE Petition of PAYSON PERRIN, of Boston, in the County
o'fSuffilk. merchant, Guardian of MaryAnn Metiain and Ellen
A. Meriam,both of them dauighters of Levi Meriam,late of said Bos-
ton, merchant, deceased, and under the age of twenty-one years,
respectfully represents, that the said minors are interested in cer-
tain real estate, consisting of a piece of land, with the buick dwel-
ling house and other buildings thereon, of which their father died
seized, situate in said Boston, and bounded running, East on
Milk street, Southerly on Hawley street, West on land of heirs of
Calviti White, deceased, and North on land of heirs of James
Prince, deceased; that their mother, the widow of said Levi
Meriaim., deceased, is entitled to dower in said estate, and that
their two brothers, Levi B. Meriam and Charles D. Merlam, are
also interested in said piece of real estate, and are now of full
age ; that the said minors are interested each a quarter part there-
in ; that the said estate was appraised at the time of their father's
decease at the sum of nine thousand dollars, but your petitioner
now has good reason to believe that it would now sell for much
larger sum ; that said estate has been hitherto rented for the sum
of five hundred and fifty dollars- per year, on a lease which ex-
pires with this month, and said estate is now vacant, and your
petitioner believes that five hundred dollars worth of repairs will
be required on the same to render it tenantable, before it can be
again leased; that it must remain vacant and be unproductive
while such repairs are made, and may continue so for a longtime
till a tenant is found, and therefore that it will be for the benefit
ofsaid minors that their interest in said real estate be disposed of
and the proceeds thereof be Out out and secured to them on inter-
est:--Wherefore the said Guardian prays, that he may he author-
ized and empowered to sell and convey the same agreeably to the
law in such case made arid provided.

The balance left in the Treasury on the first of J I
uary, 1836. was, therefore, $26,749,803 96.
The receipts into the Treasury during 1836, as asce

This does not embrace the receipts in trust on accou
of the Chiekasaw Indians.
Of those receilpsand theii investment, beside 'the F
penditures from them, a report will forth-with be IL
before Congress, in conformity to treaties, and the a(
of Congress carrying those treaties into effect.
Neither does it enibrace the receipts on account oft'
Post Office end Patent Office, of which, as well as t:
expenditures on the same accounts, separate state nme
are kept, in conformity to the late laws, and will
rendered by the proper officers.
Nor does it incLhde what has been received in tru
the present year 'for the claimants under the Frenc
Neapolitan and Spanish treaties.
A separate aecuunt will h9 exhibited in this rep(
of the receipts and expenditures from those sources,
order to avoid tcomiplexity and ambiguity in the stat
ment of' the general receipts and expenditures in behL
or the Government alone.
The receipts during the fourth quarter of the prese
year, it is computed will be about $9,550,000.
These, with the balance on the 1st of January, 18,
form an aggregate of $74,441,702.
Tire expenditures during the year 183ti, are ascertai
ed and estimated to be $31,435,032.
Of these, the a.amunt duriisg the first three quarters
ascertained to have been $20,791,372 16.

Public Debt, less than the repayments by the Coi
mnissioners of the Sinking.Fund, as hereafter explained
For the details of all these, and the incidental recegip
during those three quarters,:reference is made to t.
exhibit annexed (A 1 and 2 )
The expenditures for the fourth quarter, as comput,
by the proper Departments, will be $10,643 660; b
which, it is thought.by .me will probably fall short
This will leave on hand, on the first of January, 18:
an estimated balance bf $43,005,669; From this, ift
diminished sum of i$11f.0,000 .for unavailable funds
deducted,the available balance ef money, ou the first
January, 1837, would be the sum of $41,925,669.
But beside the charges already imposed on this b-
ance by appropriations tbr public purposes still unpai
and which will soonbe adverted to, there is iri fact i
eluded in it about $201,710, which was paid into tl
Treasury, chiefly, in former years, from private source
alone, and for private or specific purposes, and whi<
neither accrued from the usual sources of public rev
nue, nor ever beloved Ato the General Governmei,
except to fulfil the particular trusts under which it w
received in behalf of others.
A schedule of those items and sums on the first
December, 1836, is ansvwaed,(B.) Dedutct-their amou:
from the available balance of $41,925,669, and on
about $41,723,959 would remain on the first ofJanuai
next, applicable to the general purposes of the Gover.
To this'deduction woaul~ be subjoined another, h;
not the receipts and expenditures connected with ce
tain subjects during the present year, or portions ofj
been kept distinct for reasons before indicated.
Thus the receipts on account of the Post Office, which
under the new organization, are paid into the Treasul
and kept distinct, have, since it took effect, being tl
last half of the year, been ascertained and computed
'be about $1,076,872 including near $410,472, that hli
been collected prwiously; and the expenditures haN
been about $562,952, leaving a balance on hand at tI
end of the year -6f about $513,920,as will be more parl
cularly exhibited by the head of that Department.
The receipts on account of the Patent Office, since i
new organization, for the present year, have also bee
ascertained asd computed to be dbout $16,828; the e,
penditures chargeable to them about $7,241, and ti
balance about $9,587, as will be more particular show
by the report of the proper officer.
Besides these, the.'receipts into the Treasury in tru
from the treaties of indemniitywith France, Naples, an
Spain, have been about $34765,994, and the paymen
to the claimants about $3,663,988, leaving a balance
about $102,026, atill-unealled for or unadjusted.
The particulars of these will more fully appear in t]
general annual exhibit of all the receipts and expend
Lastly, the receipts into the Treasury on account
the' Chickasaw Indians, have been about $639,252 ; ti
expenditures,by. investment and otherwise,about $577
675; andthe balance on-hand is about $91,574. The d
tailed accouit-of these,and the other transactions in the
behalf, will be,as remarked in a former portion of this r
port, immediately presented in a separate communic
.tion to Congress.
The charges already imposed on the general balan(
of $41,723,959, by means of current and permanent a
proptiations-which it is expected will not be expendE
till after the first ofJauuary next, amount to$14,636,06

priate more liberally to great objects of national conse-
quence while the Treasury is so full, and in that way
gradually call for and employ the surplus till those
objects are accomplished, and then to reserve only the
residue if any in deposit with the States,to meet future
contigencies and the anticipated deficiencies in the re-
venue after 1842. Or to reduce it still more rapidly by
largely diminishing our revenue, whether from customs
or lands, and thus requiring more of the current eX-
penditures to be paid from the present surplus until the
whole shall be exhausted; or, to permit the most of it to
remain longer in deposit within the States, and so shape
future appropriations as never to render it necessary
to call for the surplus, except to meet unexpected and
In respect to this last measure, so far as already adopt-
ed by Congress as a temporary one, and the operation
cf it upon our fiscal concerns to this time and hereafter,
a few further observations may be expected.
Before the two sessions of Congress just passed, it
w-as considered doubtful whether that body would deem
it expedient to adopt the recommendations of this De-
partement to expend early on proper objects all the nett
balance in the Treasury after defraying existing charges;
or, if unwilling to do that, to reduce at once the revenue
from customer and lands, and leave with the people the
excess which would otherwise be collected, so os gradu
ally to absorb the present surplus, and ere long to col-
le ct none of any considerable magnitude, whether for
extraordinary expenditure, distribution, or other pur-
p 3ses. Consequently, a suggestion was made in the
a Inual reports of 1834 and 1835, for the temporary in-
-v -stment of the surplus, while either of those operations
n light be going on, and, if neither of them was adopted,
tl ien to remain safe and productive, until it should here-
'a: ter be needed for puqlic purposes. The proposed dis
-p' )sal of it for these periods, which it was expected would
71 at be very protracted, was in a form which was con-
5si dered secure and profitable by the purchase of safe
s ,ocks Thus easily and gradually, as well as most
p rudently,it was supposed the inconveniences of so un-
e expected and embarrassing an event as a large surplus
i wouldd be obviated, and at the same time a provident
f' nd created, which would be yielding interest, and
v. whichh could afterwards be resorted to, when the current
e expenditures might from any cause, either before or after
1 841, exceed the current revenue. In relation to that
s' abject, though a topic still intimately and deeply con-
r. ected with our finances, few additional remarks atthis
t' ime, seemed called for, since Congress at the last ses-
s ion, by a clause in the deposit law, provided for what
t his Department considers, and has taken all the proper
I preliminary steps to make, a temporary disposition of
1 he whole money in the Treasury on the first of January
n ext, except five millions of dollars. Looking at that
a s a financial measure, which is the only view ao.w'un-
d .er consideration, the granting the use of the money
without any interest, constitutes a difference from the
i node proposed by this Department, which was doubt-
1 ess designed as a benefit to the several States, and in
I ;hat view was also very properly proffered to all if to
; ny of the States, whether now in debt or not, and
whether needing the money for any great public pur-
pose or not. While treated in the nature of a mere
temporary deposit or investment on the credit of eacl;
State respectively, without interest, the profitscA'in-
come of it alone to be expended, and the pri--Ipal to be
ever held sacred and ready for repaytm'ent whenever
needed, like a fund that is providep ,ty designed to meet
my future public oontingenciPs, this kind of deposit
S nay not embarrass our fiPr'nces, and is likely to prove
u useful and convenient ito the Treasury. But should
ct )a1siderable porti', s of it be soon wanted by the Gen-
e ral Goverp:1ient, the deposit will probably occasion,
Io many oif the States, inconvenience and difficulties, if
'not losses, in the management and repayment of it,
more than equivalent to the interest received. On the
contrary, if much of it be not wanted for some years, or
till after 1841, the result may be otherwise to such
States as either need the money,or are able to employ it
beneficially. The experience of this Department has
been too brief, under the constant and laborious pre-
paration, to carry into effect, in due time, all the pro-
visions in the late deposit act, to warrant, on the pres-
ent occasion, any recommendations of modifications in
this particular portion of it. But it is respectfully sug-
gested, that, though a gradual investment of the sur-
plus in existing State stocks, would, it is believed, have
produced no pressure in the money market, yet the em-
ban assmenl s incident to the transfers of'such large sums
of money, .as became necessary, in order to divide it
seasonably among a greater number of banks, as well
as among the different States, and the-consequent tem-
porary withdrawal of considerable portions of it from
immediate use, are embarrassments inseparable from the
provisions and faithful execution of the law in its pres-
ent form. Though they constitute only a portion of those
evils which now afflict the commercial community, and
have been mitigated in their operation by this Depart-
ment, wherever practicable, they could not be wholly
obviated, without departing entirely from the duties
imposed by time law.
Immediately after its passage, steps were taken, as
required by Congress, to commence a reduction of the
deposits, which had then accumulated in certain banks
beyond three-fourths the amount of their capitals, and
at the same time to have some portion of the anticipated
surplus taken from States where its accumulation had
been large or inconvenierlt, and placed, before the 'first
of January next, in States where enough had not be-
fore been deposited, and where suitable banks-existed
willing to receive it. These steps will be more fully
detailed in a subsequent part of this report. All the pay-
ments to the several States for the whole year, are ex-'
pected to be made punctually at the times required.
But it will be necessary, from the, mnode of keeping pub-
lic accounts, to take the current statement of the Treas-
urer on the 1st of January next, as the guide for the
supposed amount in the Treasury which is required to
be apportioned among the States, and one quarter of it
to be deposited on that day. By pursuing any other
course, an unavoidable delay of weeks, if not months,
would be necessary in making the preliminary arrange-
ments for the first payment. BDut that statement seldom
differs more than a few hundred dollars from the result
as ascertained on subsequent settlement; and hence, its
amount, independent of unavailable funds, and what is
held for the Post Office and Patent Office,and in vari-
ous special trusts, will be deemed the true sum intended
by-Cong'ress as subject to apportionment, after deducting
five millions, unless in the mean time the Department
shall be otherwise directed by that body.
The whole sum to be deposited with the States, will,
on these principles, and according to present appear-
ances, range between thirty-five and thirty-eight mil-
lions, of dollars, and exceed somewhat $120,000 to each
electoral vote in each of the twenty-five States, now in
the Union; Michigan, from the language of the act, not,
being considered as vet entitled to an apportionment
under it. Three States have already signified their
willingness to receive the moneys nthe termsproposed,
and it is expected that several more will do the same
before the first of January, and probably most of them
in the course of the present winter.,
Leaving further suggestions on these and various
other considerations which bear on this interesting sub.
ject, but which need not be here repeated, the Depart-
ment will next proceed to an exhibit of the manner
in which this surplus, as well as the rest of the public
money, has been kept during the past year, and of the
detailed preparations which have been made f'orthe fu-
ture custody and preservation of it, in conformity to the
act of Congress to regulate the deposits of the public
money passed June 23, 1836, and the supplementary
act on the same subject passed the 4th of July, 1836.
6. Of the keeping of the Public Money and state of the
The money in the Treasury las been safely kept dur-
ing the year 1836. Until July last, assuring the two
previous years, it was placed in the State Banks, se-
lected according to the discretion of this Department,
on account of their high standing and favorable posi-
tion for fiscal purposes, and regulated in a manner con-
sidered most secure to the Treasury, and convenient to "
the community, as well as useful to all concerned. It e
is a source of much -gratification 'to be able -to add, that, '
while so selected and employed, not a single dollar was
lost to the Government by any of them, or a single fail- '

money to be left in any one bank than three fourths the
amount of its capital, rendered the selection of numer-
ous new banks to receive the sums which the old ones
were not allowed to retain, indispensable in the present
overflowing condition of the Treasury, and especially
at places in which the capitals of the old banks were
The transfer of all the money in the Treasury,except
five millions, on the first of January next, to be deposit-
ed in the treasuries of the several States quarterly dur-
ing 1837, in ratable proportions, made it proper to se-
lect also a few other new banks in some of the States
to receive those proportions, or sufficient parts of them,
when they happened to be either collected there, or to
be incidentally and easily transferable there.
Tihus the trouble and embarrassment of a second and
sudden transfer in January next, and quarterly there-
after during the year, were often saved by combining in
several appropriate cases the transfers ordered by Con-
gress to be soon made froln banks having an excess,
with the transfers of that excess to other banks in the
States where it was to be paid during the present year
on appropriations, or the ensuing year on the apportion-
ments, and in which last described banks and States a
deficiency existed. In this way, on several occasions,
the opportunity has been improved, of beginning to per-
fect, gradually, and, in some degree, cotemporaneously,
between places near, suitable, and of easy intercommu-
nication, the great and difficult apportionment of the
deposits of public money among several different
States, as well as among different banks. The whole
amount of transfers ordered since the first of July last,
have, of necessity, been at times very large ; but many
of them have notyet taken effect ; many more are still
to be ordered, and whole amount necessary to accom-
plish both objects will be less,and their operation easier,
than if a different course had been pursued, and the
two apportionments between the banks and the States,
had not been united in cases where practicable and con-
venient, and where large accumulations existed on the
one hand to be reduced, and deficiencies on the other
to be supplied. Their union in such cases is supposed
to have been specially contemplated by Congress, as
explained in the second and supplementary deposit act
passed in July, and, as seemed just to the several States
which had not before enjoyed much, if any benefit from
the deposit and use'of the public money within their
limits. Hence, while many transfers have been for-
borne, when feasible under the law, and desired from
public considerations, connected with the great pres-
sure in the money market, and which pressure they
would, though authorized by the acts, have severely ag-
gravated, yet great care has been employed not to make
a single transfer, except, in the language of the first de-
posite act, "to facilitate the public disbursements, and
to comply with the provisions of the act;" or, as de-
scribed more lully in the second act, either "to prevent
large and inconvenient accumulation in particular
places, or in order to produce a due equality and
proportion, according to the provisions of -" -aJst
All the transfers ordered, have i s' been so mod-
ified in respect to time, placnd business, as to pro-
duce the least inconv*- -
duce the least mcon _ence and expense possible to
the banks or !.-j community, consistent with faithful
endeavborPly .o0 execute the law on both subjects season-
a, "niid efficiently. They have been so conducted, as
also to relieve the Treasury from any expense what-
ever in a financial operation so large and unusual.-
But in carrying out so large a moneyed 'operation as
the new law demanded, and one neither comporting
with our usual fiscal proceedings, nor following the or-
dinary channels of trade, it has required great caution
not to create more embarrassment than has really oc-
cured from this source, and a greater derangement in
exchanges than actually exists. In complying with
the deposit act, it has already been found necessary to
appoint forty eight more banks, makinir on the first
instant, with the former ones, without their branches,
the whole number of eighty one. The Department
has endeavored in these selections to conform to the
spirit of the act of Congress, as regards their conve-
nient location for accommodating either the collec-
tions or the disbursements of the public money. It has
in all cases required the preliminary information made
necessary by the act. It has, as enjoined, chosen at
least one bank in every State, which had banking in-
stitutions, and which included all except Missouri and
Arkansas. It has obtained from each bank a written
agreement to comply with the duties prescribed by
law,and in every case, except four or five not deemed
suitable, from peculiar circumstances, has received col-
lateral security for the faithful fulfilment of these
agreements, and has endeavored, from time to time, to
make such requests on the subject of specie and other
topics connected with their condition, and their mode
of transacting business, as seemed conducive to safety
and public convenience. The names of each deposit
bank, with the amount of public money in each, and
its detailed condition, in.all respects, near the first of
November, 1836, are exhibited in the documents an-
nexed (E 1, 2.) In another document (F,) is present-
ed more fully and recently, the condition of those
banks with this Department, as it shows by their last
returns to the Treasurer, on the first instant, the
amount of public money then on hand,the outstanding
drafts then against them, and the existing transfers to
and from each bank.
A number of the States now have deposited suffi-
cient, with the accruing revenue, to meet all the pro-
bable demands within their limits the next year. But
it is otherwise with several of them, and, where money
has not yet been placed in each State sufficient to meet
the probable amount of deposited required there during
the first quarter of the next year, for expenditure, as
well as apportionment, it has been, or will be, put
under orders of transfer, so as to reach there season-
Numerous difficult and embarrassing questions have
arisen in the execution of the new deposit act, in con-
sequence of the novelty of many of its provisions, and
the unequal operation of others on some of the deDosi-
stories. But where great doubts existed, as to the true
intention of the law, the opinion of the Attorney Gen-
eral has been taken. When that opinion has been un-
favorable to the views entertained, under the law as it
now stands, the parties have been left, as they must al-
ways be, in such cases of supposed inequality and hard-
ship, to resort to Congress for appropriate relief.
It is therefore respectfully suggested, that relief for
the past, may be proper, in several cases, which it is
anticipated the 'parties interested will present to the
consideration of Congress. For'the convenience of this
Department, it is desirable that a provision be made for
the future, that any agency furnishing ample security,
be regarded under thie law, as having the same separ-
ate capital where established, as the bank to which it
It is further recommended, that authority be given to
discontinue such of the newly selected banks, as may
from time to time be no longer needed for fiscal or oth-
er purposes. A large portion of them, after the con-
templated deposites-are made with the several States,
will probably become entirely useless .to the Treasury,
while their returns and correspondence will continue
to be burdensome to all concerned.
- Immediately after the passage of the law, it became
the duty of this Department, among other things, to se-
lect a sufficient number of banks to hold the public
money without exceeding three-fourths of the amount
of their capitals, and one at least in each State having
banks. As it seemed impossible to carry these provis-
ions into execution in several of the States,'unless banks
should be selected which might possibly have issued'or
paid out some small bills after the 4th of July, and be-
fore they had completed the agreement, and assumed
the duties imposed by the act, Uit was thought that a
natural construction given to this limitation in that're-
spect, would make it applicable only to such banks as
were selected and subject to the law previous to that
date, and that the others must not on a like principle
make any such issues after their selection. This would
impart a reasonable and practical effect to the clause,and
at the same time not tend entirely to defeat the opera-
tion of other provisions in the act. Accordingly, minute
inquiries were not instituted whether the banks apply-
ing to be selected had previous to their application issu-
ed such bills or not; but all were required at the time
of their selection, to enter into an express written agree-
ment to 'conform to the provisions of the act, and con-
sequently not to issue any while they were public de-
