wirdcif the casual reader. Ono writer
who has been specialty deputc<l as the

tays 4<the rating of money upon a gold

think "a eu^tis in the meal tub" some
where, and somebody is afraid of the
eoneecpicnccs. To establish a national
currency ofpi'per circulation exclusively
and to discard all other money tender in
exchange, is to fasten on the nation, a
circulating medium that can last only so
loh;'-as the grtveniihent lasts. The nn
tional currency can have but F. local
value, belonging only here; as are the
promispry notes or bill's of any linn, or
corp? ration. The slightest indication of
internal riijiluic, will depreciate its val
ue, being national, ami a panic of distrust
would ensue with the holders more dis
astrous to commerce ond trade, than any
j?r.fiic which might arise from a corner
ing or speculation in gold. Establish h
government upon rn everlasting basis,
then its Currency may be national Un
