From the published condition of
our two National Banks we see they
have the healthy sum of two hun
dred and fifteen thousand, three hun
dred and ninety-tour dollars and
twenty-cents in their vaults belong
ing to individual depositors, at the
close of business on the 2nd inst.
Individual depositors have this
amount to their credit at the banks,
but the money is not stored in the
vaults. It would be of very little ser
vice to the banks or anybody else . if
it was. A comparatively small pro
portion of it , remains in the bank
vaults, the balance being in circula
tion among merchants, ' farmers,
stock traders, and business men in
general. ' ' f "
