The I The Pine Tree Sliillinff. A PLEASANT SKETCH. BY H. HiWTIloBME. Captain John Hull wai the mint msiler of Maesicbuietts, end coioed all the money ibai was made klhere. He wae in a new line of business, for, in the esrly days of the colooy, the current coinage consisted of ihe gold and silver mooey of England, Portugal and Spain. These eoina being ecarce, the people were of ten forced 10 barter their cotnrnoditiee instead of eelling them. For iostance, if man wanted lo buy a coat, he perhaps eichanged e bear skin for it. If he wished a barrel of molasses, he might pur cbsse it with a pile of pine boards. Muskei bullet were used instead of failhtnge. Th Indians had a sorl of money called wampum, which was made of clam-shells, and this straojje tort of specie was likewise taken in payment of debts by the English sellers. Bink bills hsd oevor been heard of. There waa not e nough nf any kmd, in mny suti of the coun try, to nay their niiniste.a-10 ihet they had sometimes lo luke quintal of fi.h, busltele of corn, or coida of wood, instsad of silver and gold. Aa Ibe people grew more numerous, and their trade with one another increased, the want of current money was still more sensi bly fell. To supply Ihe demand, the general ccul passed law for establishing a coinage of ahi'.lings, itiponces and threepences. Cap am John Hull e appointed lo manufscluie the money, and wai lo have one shilling out if every twenty, lo pay him for his lrouo if making ihem. . llorcupon, atl the old silver in the colony wai handed over lo Captain J hn H ill. The battered silver cans nd latikirJ, I suppose, and silver tuck'.es, and broken spoons, silver buttons of worn-out coaN, nod silver hilts if sword that hsd figured at court all 11cb cu rious old articles were doubtless thrown into ibe pot together. BjI by far the greatest pari of the silver consisted of bullion from ihe mines of South America, which ihe English buccaneers (who were little belter than pi rates,) bad taken from the Spaniard and brought lo Massachusetts. All this old and now silver boing melted down and coined, the result was an immense r mount of splendid shilling, sixpences and threepences. Eich had the dale of 1032 on one side, end Ihe figure of a pine Wee on tho other side. Hence tliey were called the pine Iree shilling. And for every twenty shillings that he coined, you will remember, Csptsin Hull was entitled to put one into bis on pocket. The magistrates ionn began lo suspect thst the mint master would have the best of the bargain. They offered him a large sum of money, if he would give up that 20, h shilling, which he was continually dropping into his own pocket ; Capt. Hull declared he was per fectly istWfied with ihe ahiUing. And well ho might be; for so diligently did he labor, thai in a few years his pockets, his money bags and his strong boi, were ove. fljwing with pine-tree shillings. This was probably ihe case when he came into possession of his grandfather's chair to reel himself oe. When the mint master had grown very rich, a youog meo, Samuel Sewel by nname, came a courting bis only daughter ; his daughter (whose name I do not know, but we will call Betty) was a fine, hearty damsel, by no means slender as some young ladiet of our own da) a. On ihe contrary, having always fed hearti ly 00 pumpkin pies, doughnut, Indian pud dings, and other puritan dainties, she was leund snd plump aa pudding. With this round, rosy Miss Betsy didSamul Sewel fall in love. As be wae youog man of good chancier, induitriout in buiioeis, tnd t mem- .The I'liclari lloi -fecnian. BY MJ- JOSEPH JONES.
