GOLD CURRENCY.-A report has been
made by the Secretary of the Treasury to
the Senate, in answer to .resolution, fur.
nishing all the data from which the amount
of gold, now in the United States, can be
computed, and also its comparative a
mount with the circulation of the Bank of
the United States, while that Bank was
in existence. These data show that, since
the passage of the gold bill in June, 1834,
the itmports and exports of gold coin and
bullion have been as follows:
Statement exhibiting the value of bullion
and specie imnported and exported from
the ist of July, 1834, to the 301h of

Making total import of gold coit, andl
bulliotn, a little upwards of twenty-six mil
lion-s of dollars, and the total export of the
same about three millions and a half, and
leaving a clear gain or about twenty-three
mi- lions on that head; hut this is not all
the gain. Emigrants have brought in ma
ny millions which wvere never entered at
the cutstom-house, and besides this, thte
product of our own mines, the old coins
of the'United States and old foreign coins
hoarded before 1834 as keepsakes, have
since come into, circulation; and the same
report from the mint gives data Otn which
they may be calculated. Thtus: The de
posites of illi-on from our mine., at- the
mirt of the United Statosand its branches,
up to the eud of the year 1838. have becn
$2,466,309, and tbis has been coined.
Nexr, the amount of gold coiu of the old
standard which has been carried to the
mint and recoined, is $1,259,300: and, be
sides this, above nine tmillions of foreign
gold coin and bullion have been coined,
of'whicht it may wvell be assumed that a
million or more was of the gold in the
cottntry before the passage of the gold bill
itn'1834. Adding these items to thte im
ports since that time and they exceed
-thirty mrilions of dollars; and supposing
. the amount brought in by emigrnts and
which came ever land from Canade to be
equal to all that wras exported, & we tmay
fairly estimate thirty millions as the pres
eat amounts in the countly. Of this a
me~ttesum of $12,850,500 htas been
-coined into eagles, half eagles, and qutarter
eagles, and the sum of about seventeen
millions is still in foreign coin. As a means
or' compelling this large amottnt to be
broutght in to be coined, as well as topro
o mote the coitnage itt future, it is proposed
that, after a gtven time, the fofeign gold
should cease, to he -a legal tender. We
presume the progress of the mint and its
bra'nehes the present year, will decide this
We rnow come to the next point in the
report, to wit, the circulation of'the late

From these tab!es the comparative re
1. That the amount of gold now in the
United States is near three times the a
mount of tho average circulalion of the
Bank during the 20 years of its existence
2.. That the amount of gold now in the
United States is near one-third more that
the circulation of the Bank df the United
States ever was in any one year of its mos
expanded and bloated distension.
The reflections which nrise on the view
(of these great results are truly cheering.
They prove that a gold currency. to the
whole extent of the wants ofthe nation,car
be acquired with all ease; that by the end
of Mr. Van Buren's second term. suppo
sing him to be re-elected, we can have
seventy millions of gold, besides upwardi
of one hundred millions of silver.
So muchfor the humbug!
What we want at present is, the cir
culation of the gold which now lies lockep
up in the banks, and that will take place
as soon as the Federal Government quin
using banks notes and goes to using gol
and silver Then the country, as well as
the Government, will see the old circulate
which is now locked up.
VERY LATE FROM ENGLAND.

whence she sailed on the 10th of January
We have our files of London papers to the

Violent Storm-three Packets Lost -
Our late storm seems to have been far ex
ceeded in severity and extent of disaster
by one which swept over the West of En
gland on the 6th of Jinuary. No less
than 13 coluninsof the Liverpool Mail ar
filled with details of its ravages. In tha
town the damage was so general that no
one street entirely escaped. Great num
bers of chimnies were blown down, crush
ing houses in their fall-roofs were car
ned away-garden walls prostrated, &c
-and in some instances entire houses
were reduced to heaps of ruin. Severa
lives were lost, but in a very extraorrdinar
number of cases, persons who were buriet
by the fall of bricks and ruins, were sub.
sequently extricated alive, and for the mos
part little injured.
The disasters among the shipping were
terrible. No less than three of the New
York packeti were lost, the Oxford. St
Andrew and Pennsylvanin. The Oxford
went on shore in Bootle Bay on the nigh
of the 6th, with all her masts standing.
The next morning, the passengers. 13 it
number, with the eaptain and crew, land
ed in safety, with the luggage. The masts
fell in the cotrse of the night.
Near to the same spot, the steamer Red
wing, a tender for the mail, weit ashore
So violent was (he hurricane, that althougli
the Redwing had three anchors out, atm
her full power of steam on, one of the
her cables snapped and the other two an.
chors dragged, the vessel going bodily ot
shore, till at last, the captain Vas oblige t<
slip his cables, to avoid running into the
Oxford. The wind then drove the vesse
on her beam enda, and being unable to ge
her head to windward, she went on shor<
The St. Andrew struck on the Burb<
Sands. The passehgers were taken of
by a steam vessel, the Victoria. High en.
comiums are paid,in the Liverpool papers
to the cool and steady conduct of Capt
Thomapbon. The ship was a total wreck
The ship Lockwvoods, with a grew num
her of passengers (on board, went upon tha
North Batik, her fore and tmain masts fall
ing in the shock. She nas hoarded by
the samte steam veissel, the Victoria,w hict
took oil' thirty three passengers arnd aboul
seventeen of the crew. Forty or fifty per.
sons were believed to have perished or
board the [5ockwood.
.The packet ship Pennsylvania went ot
the same North Bank, about a quarter o
a mile east ward of the Lock woods, where
her'hull ~was nearly covered by the sea.
The captain, crew anti passengers wert
-seen in the rigging ott 'Tuesday, the 8th
On that evening the Victoria steamer pul
offro their assistance, andi was wvithin sighi
of themn next morumng but could rendiet
them no aid. The sufferers were seer1
in thaeirigging atnd their cries could be heard.
One of the passengers, Mr. Thompson,
of New York, had been seen by Captais
Nye, of the Inadependence, at Leasowve.
He reported that himself and three othet
passengers anid 5 seamen left the ship ii1
one of the boats, which wvas swamped,
and the other eight were drowned. Mr.
Thompson ascritbed his own safety to a
life preserver which he hadl on.
It was reportedl on the 10th that 26 per.
sons had heeni rescued from the Pentnsyl
vania-44 from the Lockwoods-and 22
from the St. Atndrew.
The accounts from the interior are quite
as frightful as those fromn the sea coast.
At Manchester the violence of the storni
was terrific. In th'e surrottnding countr)
the destruction of trees was immense. In
one park alone, 150 were prostrated,
and 170 more very mutch injutred by the
loss of large limbs and branches. At
Bliekbnrn not less than eleven factories
had their chimiuies levelledl, doing great
damage in their fall.

AUGUSTA AND HAMBURG MARKET
CoTTox.-The recent intelligence from
Liverpool to the 10th January, has had
very little or no effect in our market, and
we have no alterations to notice, further
than that the finer descriptions are more
sought after, and the lower qualities more
negleced than they were this day week.
The demand throughout the week has been
fair, and the sales to a liberal extent, con
sidering the prices paid, and the great scar
cit) of money at the present time.
We quote 14 a 164 cents. Prime and
choice lots centinue very scarce, and there
are none of the latter descripliou offering
-a strictly choice lot in square hales, we
believe would readily bring 161 cents.
Our stock of cotton is decreasing fast, and
our receipts are very light for this season
of the year. 01 the stock on hand, about
one third is hold on the planters account;
the balance is in the hands of speculators
GROUEREs-There is nothing doing
worth reporting in our grocery market,
and the only sales that have come to our
knowedge were a large lot of New Orleans
Molasses on the wharf, at 38 ets.; and a
lot ol'80 bags fair Cuba Coffee at 13 cts.,
ExcHANox-Cotitinues scarce, and a
dillerence is still made of half percent. be
tween city and cotutry ills. Sight checks
are selling out doors for 14 for city, and Ij
per cent. prein fir country notes. On
Charleston J a I; Savannah 5-8 a 1 per
cent. Bank of Rome bills, do not pass in
this city, even brokers refuse to Lake them
at a discount.
COLUMBIA, Feb. 22.
Fine Cotton sold readily from 15 to 174
cents. On Thursday 21st, a lot of prime
brought 18 cents. But since the reception
of Liverpool dates down to the 17th oflJan
