A writer in the New York .-T/W.ei,
on the gold supply, assumes that we
have 300,000,000 in gold in the United
States. In a debate on the loan bill
iu Ute House, Mr. Garfield asserted
that the amount of gold held in this
country is 300,000,000. This was
questioned at the time, and we doubt
whether it can be satisfactorily mad?,
out. 'Trite, the gold supply has been
.constantly and largely on the in
crease since 11*48. The present an?
nual snpply for the world, making ar
allowance for the falling off in th*
gold prodnct of Australia, is about
110,000,000 a year. This has had t
permanent effect on prices every
where, and it is plain that prices wil
not recede to the level of the marke'
values in 1848. We never retail
gold. It is marketable, like flour ant
cotton, lt is one of our staples, auc
goes to the best market it can find
it is actually consumed here. It ii
not swallowed nor manufactured int?
wearing apparel; but, what amount
to the same tiling, it is simply ex
changed for foreign articles of luxun
or convenience, which we crave an?
cou sume. Our gold goes abroad
and, at every commercial crisis, i
becomes scarce in Europe. Our wa
and consequent cotton famine drov
gold from England and France int?
foreign countries, whence littlo of i
will ever return. England will con
linne to drain us of nil the gold w
possess as long as we owe a dolla
there for imports. Foreign nation
employ gold as a curreuoy. Th?
gives it a value which it has not here
if it was a part of our currency, ot
what is the same thing, held as a basi
for a paper circulation, we would rc
tain as much as needed to bring ou
paper to a par with gold. But, un
fortnnately, it is not so, nor is i
likely it will bo so for an indefinit
length of time. From a very well
informed and official source, Ave hav
learned that tho amount ?>f gold hoi
in this country cannot be estimated ti
over 100,0000,000, instead of 300,
000,000. There is neither any ir
ducement to retain our gold produc
at home, nor any possibility of ?loin
it, while we have 700,000,000 or 800
000,000 ?>f irredeemable paper cm
rency, and while gold does not ont?
into tho currency, nor form a bas
for its issue. When the amount <
paper shall be reduced to 3,000,0C
or 4,000,000, gold enough will bo r
bt i ned to sustain that amount ?
paper circulation at par, and wit
prices of all commodities at rates n<
much exceeding those of 1H59-60.
The advance of gol?!, owing to tl
foreign demand for it, from twent
five per cent, premium to th i rt
seven, has already been made a pr
touce for raising all prices in th
country. This "would not be so if tl
publie would see and believe that tl
paper circulation is t?i be redeem?
within any reasonable time.

In the" House of itepxeeenlatives,

transmitting reports of Maj. Gen.

of May, concerning tho rccont riots
[ at Memphis, Tenn. We are not in?
formed why Gen. Stononiau could
?001 Sw|l tno ?^cts in ono as well as
[two reports. In his report of the
ISth he states the number of negroes
j lulled t<*t fcc, tWenty-fo(ir? eight? of
I whom were discharged soldiers. In
?the report of the 13th, he gives what
I lie considers the origin and cause of
I tho. riots. The substance of this
! report is telegraphed to the Northern
1 papers by the a Washington agent of
thc Associated Press as follows:
"The Third Ctok>*?d ArUuoxy is sta
tioned in Memphis since, its Organi?
zation, and is under tho liest ol' dis?
cipline. Large numbers of the men
had what they call families living in
j South Memphis contiguous to tre
fort in which the soldiers were sta
! tioned. These colored troops beiu g
I connected with the Provost Marshal's
office, were brought in contact with
the law-breaking portion of the com?
munity. The police, who are com?
posed principally of Irishmen, con
sider tin? negro their natural compe?
titor and enemy, and many whites,
including some of the police, have
been arrested by ivegro soldiers, and,
in both cases, those arrested have
not un frequently been treated with
a harshness altogether unnecessary.
These remarks will indicate the state
of feeling, rn which demagogues and
office-seekers arc included. (len.
Stonemau adds that the evidence l>e
fore his -commission shows that the
riot commenced by four negroes and
three policemen jostliug each other
on tho sidewalk. An altercation oe
curred. One of the policemen struck
a negro with a pistol, und in turn wat
struck by a negro with a cane
"The next day from fifty to seven

them, and on the way to the statior

negroes, who used very insnltiu?
language and (ired pistols in the air
The police turned and fired on th?
negroes; The hitter returned th<
fire. The citizens then gathered am
shot and beat every negro who cann
in sight. The riot continued th re?
days, during which the houses o
negroes in South Memphis wer?

Private letters from the best informed
bankers in Germany apprehend the return
of immense amounts of our Government
bonds upon our home market. Aliout
8,000,00*- arrived by ono of the last steam?
ers. Ar tho commencement of Hie rebel?
lion our foreign debt waa thrown back
upon us at a heavy discount, and was the
easier redeemed by our citizen capitaliste.
Hie prolits being so much a.Kid national
wealth to meet tho burdell of tho war cx
But do the foreign capitalists expect
higher interest or better security for theil
finnis at home V Can they convert Ameri?
can bomb, in an overstocked home market,
into European securities at a profil ? If
tiny can, woe to the nations that are flying
b. arius; if they cannot, woe to panic
struck money dealers that are making the
movement. Those among us who hold for
investment have nothing to disturb them
in any fluctuations ttiat may result. Their
interest will be pullet nally paid, and the
principal as good as gold at any price.
lt ia the financial opinion, in New Voik,
that, if the political complications in Eu?
rope should result in a war, a general sus
pensiou of specie paymt ts will be inevita?
ble, and thal the drain of gold from this
country will cease, aa well as thu return of
our Government ?.r corporate securities
for sale, should there be no war, tho mo?
netary crisis will be safely passed, and gold
will flow back to this country, or at least
accumulate here from our own products.
Our securities, including the whole stock
list, will be buoyant as ! mg as we have a
greatly redundant paper currency upon
which to float them. But if gold" should
advance to utMi or SOO, il would enable us t..
repurchase our Securities now held abroad,
and keep them hereafter at home -where
