The Currents ot Gold and Silver. 7ranslai.ed.from an Article of Dr. M. Ll:k, in the Magazine for Foreign Lttitrqfurc. There biIm-s in tbe MeNieun Gulf a gigantic hot well which, runniug northwnrd, warms and fructifies the otherwise biirren rpsions of the hipher latitudes of the Wet-torn lletuibplicre. In the bays of Norwuy the Gulf Stream thus this well is called is welcomed for the bless ings it brings, notwithstanding the dangers "with which, in its course, it may have threat ened many a ship bound for her coasK More than once I compared, in my thoughts, this Gulf Stream w ith the currents of gold and silver which now for centuries have connected America with Europe, and Europe with Asia. These currents are beneficial, even though in single cants Ihey may have caused some damages. They quicken commerce, vivify industry, in crease the general well-being, aud procure to one the leisure by which the mind is benefited nd to another the products which strengthen the body and preserve its health. The currents of the precious metals have their cause in two circumstances: The one is, that the gold and silver mines are not like cornfields, equally distributed over the whole surface of the earth; the other lies in human nature. We long and pray for the precious metals; therefore they feel themselves attracted and press around us until they leave us again and yield to a new and more attractive power. It is well known that these hard and cold metallic pieces are uncommonly sensitive and delicate, the very mimosas of the world ol affairs; and this sensi tiveness grcntly favors and quickens these cur rents and fluctuations. It would be interesting to study this quality of the precious metals, but I prefer, instead of thi?, to investigate whence they are coming and whither they are troicc. Whence uoe tbe civilized world receive the necessary quantity of gold and silver? Without going back to antiquity, we must establish three distinct periods: First, before the discovery ot America; second, from U'Si to 1848; third, from 1848 np to the present time. The migrations of nations had caused a consi derable diminution of thu then existing stores of precious metals; for at the time of the in vasions of the barbarians, everybody hid his treasures, and hilt few had the opportunity to bring to light again their buried property. The working of the mines had also to be stopped in consequence of the disturbed state ol things. The natural consequence was that after the re-establibhmeut ot a certain decree of orde and social oiganization, gold and silver became uncommonly dear, and mines of even small productiveness were advantageously worked with imperiect implements. During the middle ages, we thus find several mines of leaser im portance worked in Sweden, Germany, Hun earv. Macedonia, and particularly in Spain. Mr. ltoswair, in his interesting work, "Les Metaux lJrecicux Lortsideres au uoint de vue ucono- rnique," expresses himself concerning the latter country in the iollowing manner: "After the expulsion of the Moors, the working of the mines greatly increased. The German brothers, the Counts P'nesrer. of Aucsburg, were at the head of the mining industry. They worked the immense sixty feet deep quicksilver mines of Almaden, and also the celebrated mines of Guadalcaral. famous lor their productiveness in silver, which have since been worked asain, but with loss. When Germany sent these two miners she bad already become the rich school of mining." However it may have been with regard to these two noble miners, they were unable to stem the current of gold and silver which had been set in motion bv Columbus. As soon as America was discovered. Europe fell under the almost exclusivelinfluence of the metallic wealth of that continent. About the year 1500 a considerable mass of cold and silver had already been accumulated. bnt it would be difficult, if 'not Impossible, to estimate its exact amount. The English writer Air. Jacoo estimated tne sum at juluuu.uuu, Michel Chevalier estimated the amount at two and a-half times the amount, say 1,000,000,000 of lrancs (3-10 cold. 7-10 silver), others exceeded this calculation by 400,000,000 tbalers. What is certain is that if Defore the discovery of America, the Reformation and the invention ot printing, the stock of cold in existence was sufficient, Europe, after awaking from her Intellectual torpor, without the American supplies of pre cious metals would have been very much checked in her industrial and commercial de velopment. Columbus landed in America in 1492; twenty- one years later Cortez triumphantly entered Mexico, and Pi.arro, in the year 1627, con quered the empire, of the Incas. How much silver has since been exported trom thence up to the vear 1H4H ? l'robabl v 61.985.000 kilogrammes two pounds to the kilogramme), valued at 13.774,000,000 ot francs trom Mexico; 58,705,000 kilogrammes, valued at 13,050.000,000 lrancs from Peru: from Chili and New Granada, 1,300,000 kilogrammes, valued at 280.000,000 lrancs, together with, from America, 27,122,' 4)00.1)00 of f rancs. During that period of three hundred years the silver mines ot Europe did not remain unworkea, but scarcely yielded lifteen per cent, ol the total uroductlon. Besides the silver, the following quantities of gold were linponeu rrom America: Kilogrammes. Francs. ' Brazil 1,1142,800 4 625,000 000 Kew Granada 6tu 74U 1.952.000.000 Mexico 8X9 2H9 1841,000,000 vera U40.893 1,172 000,000 Chill 250,142 b02,0J0,0il0 Horth America 22 126 7o,QtX).000 2,910,977 10.028,000,000 If to these figures are added the production of Bibcria and Itussia. amounting io Z33,ooo,uoo of ailver. and 1,100,000,000 of gold; that of Eurone. amounting to 2.000,000,000 of silver. and 600,000.000 ot gold, and that of the rest of the world, mainly tnat oi a men, amounting to Kim non i, on i.f ttiA and not takinir in rtcrriunt the ioit, there would have been la the year 1IU8 ft total nmonrit. of 2!W5,000.000 of francs of silver, and 14,128,0(10,000 ol gold. f Hotore the year 184a, reronmaoie in more than one renpeci, the production of silver pre ponderated; bnt irom that period the. produc tion of sold tooK nn extraordinary development, and will probably come np to the amount, ot silver. More or less approximately, the iroduc- tion of gold and eilvcr durinsrtlie nine years from 1817 to 1800 Las been as follow1: -Francs- Silver. Gold. Anstrnlla. .... ... 9 000,000 1,615,000,000 .1,828,000,000 4,648,000,000 . 21,000,000 743,000,000 . 22,000,000 605,000,000 108,000,000 2,180,000,000 7,009,000,000 America Europe nsia Airica (Ouiute). During these nine years the production of gold wai more than triple that ot silver; from 1857 to 1R(I4 the yearly yield ol silver is estimated at 240,000.000: that ot Bold, at 600,000,000; making a total durine the whole seven years of l,(ih0.()00,()00 lrancs of silver, and 3,600,000,000 ol gold. Thej.0 immcnso masses of precious metals. however, no longer exist in their full integrity. a part oi tuem is lost Dy waste and use, another part by all kind of accidents, ship wrecks, fire, eta. The whole loss is entimatod at one-quarter of the total amount. About two tilths have been coined; the rest wa employed in different branches ol industry, or in the form ol ingots awaits its future destination. Although the above mentioned figures may not deserve tnll credence, still they furnish a tolerably accurate idea ol the existing facts. They show whenco the precious metals are condtig. and thus point to one of the directions oi tue tui rents, mis one nugnt be called toe centripetal, because the precious metals must nece-sarily receive their impetus from the centre of the civilized world. From thence bceins a centriii'eal current; the gold, and, still more, the silver leaves the great storehouses of tho European mercantile world to carry their vivify ing inlltieiice elsewhere. They willingly go wherever ihey are called for; good and cheap nicichardises attract them surely. They cer tainly satisfy some of our wants, but by far not the most Indispensable. We cannot cat golden orenn, nor drink silvery water, nna however much we may be pleased with shining orna ments and lewelry, and whatever pleasure we may find in counting over and over tingling pieces ot gold and silver, we willingly spend them lor what satisfies our hunger, or protects us against cold and the changes of temperature. Everybody knows that commerce is based upon differences of products and wants, both oi individuals and of whole countries; aud that the precious metals in the form of coins serve as means of exc hange. We Ions for gold and silver because thev are commodious means of obtaining that which satisfies our wants. If we have well-stocked stores of them it is the same as though we had storehouses lull ot Hour, or ot woven cloth, or of wood, or of coal. If this be trup, the gold and silver currents must by preference tke their directions towards tho.-e countries which produce the most, or those which have the monopoly of certain pro ducts. Without roinir back to those bar barous times when brutal force and violence interrupted the well-planned calculations of political cconomv. and victorious legions de stroyed in a lew weeks the accumulated in dustrial treasures of centurits, we shall limit ourselves to the period immediately after the discovery of America. Spain had ihe envied, but not the enviable destiny to be the first in the exclusive possession of the trans-Atluntic Eldorado. W ho has not heard of the nchl v laden callevs which year alter year carried the produce of ail tne mines ot Mexico anu l'eru to the mother country ? But alto who does not know that oy no possible means could these treasures be re tained in Spain? That countrv. with a decreas ing penulalion and without industry, did not piease tnctn; they llowed to Italy and Uermany, afterwards to France and England, where indus try flourished, and uselul merchandises could be obtained lu exchunue lor them. Up to our time the currents of the precious metals have followed the same directions, although with some considerable deviations and countertides. If we first look to France, we find for the period from 1810 to 1HC4, tiie following data concerning the importation and exportation: Importation. Exoortntlon. Excess. Gold.. fi,7i,14 64 5 2.'2ti7 SWUifl Imports. 3,4117 109 bllver.3 (iOS,Bt,7Bj 4,li75,St)5,tm i.xportB,l Ul(J,17,01(j Total. .8,Ki4 038.430 6,313,066 277 Imports, ii,4M),y72,153 These figures show that France during these sixteen years imported of gold 3,407,000,000 of francs more than she exported, and on the other hnnd exported 1,010,000,000 ot silver more than sue imported. it we now consider the Ftateot tinners In Eng land, we cannot go back further than the year 18'i8, when the custom office began ils regular statements; from that year up to 18G3, we find lhat her Importation of precious metals amounted to 4,239,000,000 of francs, and her ex portation to 3,040,000,000; her balance, there- lore, being 20,000.000. During the same period France had a surplus ot 902.000,000, her im portation of gold and silver being not very dif ferent from that of England, but her exporta tion being considerably less. It may now be questioned w hy does England, notwithstanding her extensive commerce, at tract less gold and silver than t ranee 1 The answer is simple. Precisely because her exten sive commerce allows her to pay for a larger portion of her importations with her own manu- lHetures. ii n he obiectea that her cams must necessarily have been larger than the above stated 21)9,000,000, during six years, the expla nation is eay enough. The small surplus of precious nictuls may be accounted for by the circumstance that the development of banking institutions in (ireat Britain enables her capital ists to participate in all the great European umn yiiBt-B. EiligUBU i;m'ltni jn:iu-u nw.o every where: numerous loans, establishments of credit, railroads and manufactures of every kind, in all parts of tbe inhabited globe, havo drawn their funds from British sources. And whatever is not absorbed by such enterprises flows to Asia, in exchange for purchases ot raw products. Thus tar we have followed the currents of the precious metals from their origin to Europe; we must now follow another current lrora Europe to Asia, and in particular to China and India. During centuries wo imported from thence silks, spices, tea, and other productions, for which lor along time we naa notntng to oucr in exchange but silver. Before the invention of the steam engine, our industry was, perhaps. nob much sunerior to lhat of China, and in all probability the latter lound our taste as bad as we lound 1 Heirs, we must, mereiore, oe not, an all astonished if Alexander von Humboldt. about the year 1800, estimated the annual" cur rent ot silver towards tne r.ast as louowsj Francs. Itound the Cape of Good Hope .94,000,000 inrouun Asia Minor, a lanro uortiou oi n beliiff there abnorbea 21,5'K).000 Through liussia, ovenand 21,600,000 Total 137,000,000 There, like In all desootlcallv covcrncd coun tries without entubliHhments ot credit, coin 1b often burled or hidden bv its possessor: at any rate it lies unproductive. Hut gradually matters took another turn. The Chinese beenn to smoke opium, and during the period trom 1810-60 puld over two nuuaren millions ot lrancs veariy to the merchants of British East India. But the latter lound out that notwithstanding the low nrice of w aires there, it would be mora advan tageous lor them to send tne cotton they raleJ round the Cape to Encland In order to have it manutacturrd there, than to manufacture It themselves. Thus it seemed as if the mission of the Chinese lor opium would draw the silver out of its hiding places and turn the balance in lavor ot Europe, uut this counter-current ot silver did not last long. The consumption of tea constantly increased. and now amounts to hundreds of millions of pounds; again, Europe consumes 70 to 80,000 bales of wilk. several millions or hundred. weight of cotton, besides copper, lead, spice" Buear. and a number of other products of the East. Then England causes railroads to be built in tbe East iDdies, and aids the establish ment there of other kinds of culture and indus try, to thut from five hundred to six hundred millions of francs go to Asia cros the Isthmus of bnee or round the Cape, of which amount 01 5er cent, is in silver and 9 per cent. In gold, f these sums nine-tenths go trom England And only one-tenth from other countries, including France. 1 Although England very often only plays the part of intermediary, she nevertheless partici pates greatly in all commercial and industrial enterprises, ller extensive connections with the East sufficiently explain her large etporta tiODS of silver, and her comparatively small accumulation of precious octal. Moreover, noboly, now-a-days, belKves the wealth of a country to consist bnly in gold and silver. Money i9 CT everybody a mere means, which certainly is not always equally well employed. However that be, the fact remains that the gold currents from California and Australia have given to the spirit ol enterprise in Europe a greater impulse, and the centripetal force of attraction of tho East prevents the accumula tion of the precious metals Irom , producing a dangerous plethora. Should the working of the placers produce a gradual rise in prices, the movement win, in an prooaouity, oe so slow that no social pertubations are to be leared. FINANCIAL. JAY COOKE & CO., No. 114 S.
