How the Books and Aoeounts "Were Bedevilled. "TWA UN' TWA MAK SAX." [BY cable to thb hebald.] Glasgow, Oct. 18, 1878. The investigators' report of the condition of the Bank of the City of Glasgow was promised for six o'clock, bat was not issned until balf-past eight this evening. The printing was conducted as secretly as if it were a State paper. The appalling fact is disclosed that the total loss, including the ?1,000,000 of the capital slock, will reach ?6,100,983 ($29,964,357 72). In commercial circles there is great uneasiness felt to night regarding to-morrow's business. A serious panic is anticipated and the anxiety of impending doom was seen in the ?aoe of every business man encountered. Compara tively little trade was done yesterday. All interest was centred in the publication of the investigators' report. Ihe reported tenor of the document tended to keep down prices in every branch of trade. Fig iron's rise yesterday was completely lost to-day. Another failure was also reported to-day?namely, John Young & Son, of Paisley, starch, corn and flour dealers. A SHAMEFUL EXHIBIT. The report of Messrs. Kerr, Anderson and Muir, chartered accountants of Glasgow, and Messrs. McGregor, Donald & Co., solici tors of Glasgow, is as follows:?"In refer ence to the delay in the publication of the report we have to explain that it was caused by the delays in reoeiving reports from the yarions branches of the City of Glasgow Bank, but it seemed to the examiners to be of less importance that an exhaustive examination should take place, involving, as it would, a month's delay, than that a videmua should be pre pared, however roughly, showing, even approximately, the condition of the bank's affairs. The real state of things is here with laid before the shareholders in order that they may decide what course shall be followed in the future. Thus a fortnight is saved in the event of liquidation. 1 HE OZTICIAL INIQUITY. "All the books were placed under the oommittee's cognizance. At an early stage of the investigations it became apparent th-it questions seriously affecting ths management of the bank by the directors and managers were involved. The examiners felt it to be their duty to solicit explanations and par ticulars from these gentlemen. They re plied that the special points referred to were as new and startling to them (the directors and managers) as to ourselves." The report then goes into details and refers to certain items, oalling special attention to the important portions by remarks. Thus, under part No. 1, headed "Liabilities:"? "D.?Acceptances by tho City of Glas gow Bank, past due or current:?By intri cate manipulations of the books tho share holders were led to believe by printed re ports that the bank had lent on foreign oolonial credits a less amount than was the fact by ?973,000 ($4,709,320). "B.?That the City of Glasgow Bank had accepted fewer bills payable than was the fact to the amount of ?973,000 ($4,709,320). "E.? Of ?149,435 ($723,205) bills entered uuder the hoading of 'Bills Parted Will ,* the committee believe these should bo ?(>45,595, which, although handed to the City of Glasgow Bank for collection or re tention, have been forwarded to London and discounted or placed to the credit of the London Joint Htock Bank and by it held as security lor advances." That statement of liabilities is made up to October 1. Tho report then treats of:? "so 2.?ASSETS. "A. Cash In gold and silvor in the cashier's hands at the Central Bank, ?231,500; in the hands of tellers, ?12,15C, and at branches?as ascertained from the register of notes nnd specie; in the hands of branches, ?49,889; making a total of ?293,545. But as tho branches made their returns only onco a week the above ?49,889 represents what is actually on hand on September 28. A PENAL FALSIFICATION. "The authorized circulation waa only ?72,991. Adding ?293,545 it would only have justified an issne of ?366,466, but the circulation previous to Saturday was ?604,196. The explanation of this discrep ancy was found in the circulation ledger itself, from which it appears that since the commencement of the year it had been the habit to add to the weekly return of bullion made to the government under 8 and 9 Vie. cap. 38, an imaginary sum less or more acoording to the emergencies of the period. Beginning with ?60,000 under the first week in January, these falsifications fluctuated weekly until on the 21st September, when the last return reached ?300,000 of the additions thus made openly and regularly entered in the circulation ledger in smaller figures over the amount of gold really on hand in Glas gow. These vitiated entries make the bank liable to heavy penalties." MOBE GEBBYMANDEBINQ. "B. Balances, current aocounts and over drafts considered good. In the general ledger, headed credit accounts, the debtor balanoe is ?2,009,752. In revision of this draft it would appear that to lessen this apparent amount ?926,724 was deduoted from the total and transferred from the first head to a new acoount headed 'oredit ao counts Nos. 1, 3, 4 balance.' A further reduction of ?200,000 was made by trans ferring it to a new heading entitled 'reserve gold.' As all acoounts grouped in the abstract under No. 1 are in the printed balance sheet included under the heading 'Bills of exchange, local and country bills, oredit acts and other advances upon security,' and all accounts under the head of No. 3 under the special heading of 'Cash in hand,' and is entered under two divisions? namely, 'Gold and silver coin notes of other banks at offloe and branches,' and 'Government stocks, exchequer bills, rail way and other stocks and debentures, and balances in the hands of banking cor respondents.' " SUMMING UP THE BOOKKEEPING VIIXANIES. The practical result of this was that the shareholders were led to believe:? (a.) That the bank had lent upon credits less than the fact by ?1,126,764. (b.) That the bank had in its hands good paper, belonging to themselves, abso solutely more than the fact by ?926,764. (c.) That the bank had in its cash chest more reserve gold than the fact by ?200,000. A LIST OP THE ASSETS. The report then goes into the assets. The business premises of the bank and branohes, heritable property in Glasgow and the col onies, furniture, shares and debentures, in cluding railway and other stocks and deben tures, are set down at ?1,023,699. There are also general securities and stocks worth ?67,475, making altogether ?1,091,175. AMERICAN SECURITIES. Among these American stocks are $2,910,000 of seven per cent Western Union Railroad (from Milwaukee to Bock Island), valued at ?436,500, less advance on them of $90,000 by the General Credit and Dis count Company of London ; then West ern Union Railroad shares, $1,992,340, valued at ?11,950. It further held in con nection with the above railway property of the Racine Warehouse and Dock Company which cost $300,000 and is valued at ?6,000. Also 3,273 shares of the Milwaukee and St Paul Railway represent ?20,292. Of government stocks, chiefly East In dian, it held ?960,923. The estimated value of the securities held against bid debts is as follows:?The total amount of estimated bad debts on October 1 was ?7,345,357. These the bank had the habit of treating on the balance sheet as available assets. Among the debitors included under this head aro four, on which, owing to their magnitude, the reporters append a separate note. Firrt?Llablllt les ?2,3jn,r>oo Probable value of securities held 088,184 Deficit ?1,032,400 Second?Mobilities ?1,804,?27 Probable value of securities held 452,682 Deficit ?1,412,044 Third?Liabilities ?1,142,087 Probable value securities held 310,632 Deficit ?832,466 Fnnrlh? Liabilities ?404,180 Probnbie value securities held 71,136 Dcficit ?3?3,0il MONET ON LIFE rOLICIPB. These valuations even arc probably too high. The bunk held life insuranoe policies against debts to the amount of ?611,051. These were entered at the surrender value of ?74,014. The report makes a" lengthy statement of questionable value regarding the heritable properties held as securities by the bank. Many amounts were entered by tho managers under suspense account, considered by the bank as worthless. In fact there is an interminable list of appa rently criminal withholding of the real con dition of the bank's accounts in preparing tho balance sheets. The length of the doc ument prevents more details under this head. WORSE THAN EXPECTED. The report confirms the worst charges agair&t the directors of neglect of duty and oulpable mismanagement, if inot malfea nance. The deception was carried on for five years, daring which dividends of twelve per cent were paid. The papers hope that in the interest of commercial morality the direotors will be brought to account.

Tns Daily Newt, In Its financial column, alluding to Street rumors, says:?-'A* lar as could be ascer tained at the last moment yesterday tbere was no foundation (or the report that any Lon don bank Is In ditflonlty. On tbo con trary accommodation was given more Irecly. Those endeavors to create dlfflcultlos by coscoctors of this species of Intelligence are much to be deprecated.

Tbe Timet, In Its financial article, says:?"No fresh MtnplloaUons were announced yesterday, or appre hended.

ANXIETY OF THE GLASGOW BANK SHARE HOLDERS TO FIND A WAX OUT OF THKIB TROUBLE?STILL IN SUSPENSE. [From the Evening Telegram of yesterday.] [SPECIAL CABLE DESPATCH 10 THE TELEGRAM.] Glasgow, Oct 18, 1878. The Indignation tn this city against the officers of the defunct Bank of Glasgow for their criminal recklessness and flagrant mismanagement of its aflalrs, is nonrly becoming more intense. It is the general belief that several of these individuals will soon see the inside ol a prison celL One of the leading papers here republishes the city article of to-day's London nines?mat portion of it bearing on the subject in question? thoroughly indorsing tbe opinions pronounced by the "Thunderer." The Timet, in referring to the committee o( shareholders and depositors ol the bankrupt bank, who arrived in the metropolis on the 15th inst. to consult with their brother victims, states, alter outlining the object ol their mission, that their main purpose is to obtain the concurrence and sanction ol the London creditors to a voluntary winding up ol tbe aflalrs of the bank instead oi plunging it into judicial bankruptcy. THE PROPOSED METHOD OF SETTLEMENT. This method meets with general favor when the tardy and cumbersome maotuncry of Scotch bank ruptcy proceedings is taken into consideration. Another reason which suggests itself for the fa vorable consideration of the stockholders and de? posltors is that the expense ol arriving at a set tlement oi affairs may be lessened. Another plea for this line of conduct is that cred itors look upon the suggestion lavor ably and are willing as a rule to give It their sympathy and indorsement The debtors also think some ol tbeir questionable transactions will be longer Aid 11 this method oi winding up is adopted. Whether they are right or wromr In these premises remains to be seen. There seems to be litue doubt that malpractice ol the worst character must ere long be revealed, which has been with rare art long hidden Irom the knowl edge oi the shareholders INCONVENIENT FACTS. A great many inconvenient (acts about peculiar debit) will soon have to be discussed, likewise as to liabilities not yet made public and as to the general previous standing ol the Institution. Some ol the exposures will be, It Is boldly alleged, of an abso lutely criminal natuie, when the mabk of ccfticesl ment is rudely lorn away. The mercantile com munity, Interested in this matter lor Its own good name and lame, ought not to hesitate lor an Instant to have the fullest light thrown upon tne doings of ihe bankrupt institu tion. The investigation must be a lull and search ing one, and condign punishment should be In flicted upon those iraudulent otilcers oi the bank ana others whose misstatements, concealment and perversion ol tacts have wrecked the bank and have ruined tnousands ol innocent people. LET JCSTIOJ UK DONE. It will be a standing disgrace to the commnnlty If the a ITS Irs 01 the bank are permi'ted to "slip through" without the most critical and searching Investigation possible. If needs be, let the matter be gone into before a court or Justice. Justice has higher alms than to please nervous creditors, or spare culpable officials, or interfere witn the hon est determination ot the wronged shareholders. Let the whole ttuth and all the facts be brought to light, and let us believe and trust that justice may be done. This wilt end the suspense concern ing this bank's affairs, and nothing else. TUK DELAYBP ACCOfNTS. Tne delay In the preparation of the accounts, It is concedcd on ail handa, has been most unwarrant able. A number of simply vexatious questions have been raised about the powers ol shareholders voting. The proxies must all be lianoed In by to morow morning. The geueral meeting of tne vic timized shareholders will be an interesting one. The greatest possible secrecy is being observed by the bank officials and all connected With it as to all that Is transpiring, but it la believed that the examiners will have their accounts ready by to night. The thought la ireeiy expressed that a very atrong effort will be made to pack the sharehold ers'meeting. This la considered one ol the most unpleasant feature* of the disaster, it is alieged, should this be done, that an Immense amount of deception and iraud will be handled away and buried without inquiry.

Persistant rumors are In circulation In financial circles this afternoon to the effect that a large bank is in difficulty, and will probably soon close Its doors. What troth there Is in the rumor it ih hard at this moment to say. It Is generally thought, however, tnat there Is a good deal of tact in the rumors. Anxiety In commercial and finan cial olroles Is momebtarily increasing. TIIB FAI.L OF SILVER. The tail of silver makes ? notable shrinkage in the prod La of East Indian houses engaged in the trade.
