Tho depiction of the Confoderato currency
under the recent legislation la much greater
thtn Is generally supposed! and In this con
nectlon It will bo interesting to refer to well
established figures. Thoentlre Issue of the old
circulation wo may tako at S800,000,000. The
number of ono hundred dollar bills in elrcnla.
tlon has bocn about 1230,000,000. or leaser
denomination that will bo funded thve are,
at least, say i-W.lxw.ooo. Deduct now the
300,000,000 funded, andwahavethOO.OOO.OOO.
This, reduced by tho discount of thlrty-threo
and one third per cent., will, In round nam
bar, leave us (330,000.001).
Tho tax levied ror 1801 is estimated consld
crablyabovo f 100,000,000. There being only
r 350,000,000 funded in four per cents, it follows
that 1 1 00,000.000 of currency nimt be used in
addition to the above for the payment nf the
taxes for 1884, which will still further reduce
tho circulating medium to !30,000,000. From
tho last named sum thero mast bo subtracted
tho amount reqa'rcd to pay the additional
taxea imposed by tho Isto Congress on the in
come tax of 1SS3, as well as some portion of
tho old taxca that will not bo paid oa the flrst
of April, 1801. The circulation would thus be
reduced to ISOO.OOO.OOO, without reference to
tho manufacture and emission of more paper
