AW IT’I. COM LAO RATION !
Pll 11.A UKI.PH I A, ApilUh—I he i Illinois
of Philadelphia liaxe not, for many yrais,
witnessed a Conflagration so awtully
t hiealeutiig in its appearance, a- ex
hibited to them yesterday evening. The
cry ol Fire was first heard about a quar
ter after seven o'cloek, anil in less Ilian
hall an hour, the whole of the New Thea
tre, extending from Cliesinit street to Cur
peutci sheet, was enveloped in flumes;—
which owing to its extensive roof, and to
the sci nery and other combustible mailer
within its walls, created an illuiniiialiuti
over the city ami for many miles round,
more brilliant perhaps than was ever
belore occa-iwiieil l*\ a fire in Philadelphia.
The heal was so intense that no exertion
of the Firemen could save the buildings
adjoining the Theatre on Ihe west—both
the Work Shop ami f ias House on Carpen
ter street, were destroyed, us were the
upper etuiies of lire two buildings on
Ciiesuut street, and the Fire unsubdu
ed, when this paper went to press—one
of these houses was occupied hy Mrs.
O’Neil!, and contained her Circulating
Library, and Ihe other by Mr. John Dii
puv, and contained his Confectionary
Store.
'Fhe roof of the Shakespeare buildings
adjoining the Theatre on the east, was
repeatedly ou tire—hut the incessant and
active exertions of Ihe Members of the
Engine and Hose Companies itfectually
checked its progress ou that side.
There is reason to believe, that this me
lancholy event was occasioned by some
desperately wicked incendiary, ami lhal
the horrible deed must have been perpe
trated several hours before the fire was
discovered, as it had gotten to sueii a
head when tilt* alarm wa* first given, that
no human efforts could have saved flic
buildings which were destroyed.

Air. i'ruuj'vrd'a Currency Report -No. g.
In tbedigression, willi which Mr. Craw
lord closes the second bran.ii of the Re
iroit, it is, satisfactorily, shown, that an
emission ot a large amount of treasury
notes is not calculated to relieve the pe
cuniary distress ot the country. His re
marks on tins subject are recommended
to the particular examination ol those
who are friendly fo such an emission.
The third member of the resolution of
the House of Representatives requires the
Secretary of the '1 reasury to report such
measures, as in his opinion may be expe
dient to supply a circulating medium in
ploce of specie, adapted to tbe exigencies
of tlie country, and within the power ol
lln* govern incut.
In entering upon this branch of the
9iihjet t, Mr. (I. waves the question which
naturally aiiscs us to the constitutional
power of Congress to establish a national
currency in lieu of specie. A .though we
are perfectly satisfied that the federal
constitution confers no such power, we
shall not slop to make the enquiry. This
is an age of experiment. Sound principles
of political economy seem to be banish
•*d. One experiment fails, and another
immediately succeeds to repair the em
barrassments resulting from the first...,
Whatever promises to answer this end, is
likely to be favorably received; and it

Bank, il may bellioughl that a crisis hat
arrived of sufficient importance to justify
HU enlarged construction of the eniisfilu
tion, beyond what was contemplated by
tin* trainers ot that instrument.
Among the many visionary schemes
v.hicli have been projected lor I lie relief
ot toe country, this is the only one vv hit'll
has ihe public sanction nl a high and res
peclable public officer. Wo cen-ider Mr.
t>ra w lord a man ol great talents and pub
lic worth. The superior order of his nn*
tlrrsiandiiig, and Hie virtues ol his char
acter have gamed the confidence of nis
country. Any thing, therefore, which
treats the authority of his name, is likely
to attract a liens ion and lo obtain advo
cates* In addition to these enn-ide ra
tions we ate induced to examine Ins projet
ol a national « urreucy, becau-e there is a
Convictlou on ihe munis ol some intelli
gent men ol Ihe practicability and utility
of such h measure. Il is a subject, which
as Mr. C. says, “ involves ail the compli
cated interests of society, except the en
joy nidi! of civil, political aid religious
liberty.”
We ought however to remark, in justice
f* Mr. C. that the resolution impose* upon
him the duty which he has performed—
that in the performance of it, lie claim?
The indulgence of those who have ren
dered it necessary—and confesses many
>rry strong objections to which his plan
to i \po-ed.

it wilt be necessary to relieve those lucti
lotions from the obligation of tfieir paying
notes in specie ; substituting in place of
suet' obligation, that id paying their notes
in the national currency. In addition to
this, tin y aie to be authorised to deal
in public stocks—always giving the gov*
eminent (lie preference in their attempts
to sell, when stock i* »», or below par.
Mr. C. says that if tins system should
go into operation, “individuals and banks
would exchange public stock at the tales
presciibcd by it — whenever the demand
lorCHireitcy should be such as to raise
the interest of money considerably a
hove 1 t at produced by the public stock,
it would, by banks and individuals be
given in exchange fur the currency—that
gold <V stiver will be found in the country
only in the quantity demanded for niami
lactuics and for such branches <>| com
merce as arc entirely dependant upon
then.”
After a preliminary investigation, in
which are shewn the variations to which
specie is subject, from temporary and per
manent causes, it is contended, that the
proposed currency will possess “ equal
security again-t redundancy as in the
case ol a metallic currency." When it ts
issued in exchange lor the coin, there is
no addition made to the currency—when
it is issued in exchange loi public stock,
commanding previously to the exchange,
its par value in coin, the parly who ac
quires the currency, parts with ihuf which
was equal to specie, ami is deprived of
the annual interest which it produced.—
Unless the interest ol the currency, from
its scarcity, should exceed that paid up
on the slock, it would not be demanded
in exchange lor tho slock : in either ease
the danger of redundancy is extremely
remote.” “ Under a system ol this kind,
if no other paper was permitted to circu
late, than the national currency, a red tin
dancy which would affect its value could
only occur by a temporary diminution of
tile articles which were In he exchanged
through its instrumentality ; in that eve til
the price of the articles would be rn

o' currency to effect their exchange.—

portion to the diminution in the quantity
of the articles, th:»i portion ot the cur
rency, which would, under >uch ciictim
stances, lie left without employment,
would lie funded. A just relation be
tween the amount of currency, and the
driuand far it, would be promptly res
tored without affecting, injuriously, the
relations between individuals ; on the
other hand, should a greater quantity of
exchangeable articles be produced, the
demand for currency would exceed the
supply, and lead immediately to addi
tional issues, until the tiecrssury supply
should be obtained.*'
ll this scheme be connected w ith banks,
and llie currency should become red an
daul from their issues, it is said “ ihe ua
tional currency would be demanded of
them for the purpose of being funded ;
the hanks would be compelled to curtail
their discounts, to relieve themselves
from the pressure, and the amount of
the currency would he promptly reduced
to t!ie legitimate demand.” To prevent
excessive hank issues ** the national tur•
reney alone should be tccoiv able in all pay
ments to the government.”
These are.the principal results ol the
proposed plan, so tar a> they relate to the
domestic interests of flie country- Satis
fied that, ill an attempt to establish a
national paper money, due regard should
be had to its cfKcis upon our inter
course with foreign nations, Mr. C. at
tempts to show how easily an unfavora
ble state of foreign exchange may be
corrected “ in a country where a paper
currency has been adopted, ami the prin
ciples by which it min nil "icy may be pre
vented, have been enforced."
The whole report has been published
in this paper ; which saves us the neces
sity of making more copious extracts
bom that part of it io which this plan for
the adoption ot a national currency is de
veloped— the foregoing is an outline of
that i Ian. We may not understand it
correctly, but so far as we do, we frank
ly confess it appears to as visionary
and impracticable. Gold and silver, as
the representative or measure of value,
are to be supplied by a paper currency
issued from the government, and resting,
tor the support of its credit, on the es
timation mi wliicb lhe public stock is held.
Mr. C seems to admit that nothing will
perform the functions of money so well
as gold and silver, unless it can be pro'
teeted from redundancy in an equal tie.
gree with those metals. That they are
subject lo fluctuations, he lias labored to
prove. B dug an universal medium, (heir
n-miiniaiii'Y or ueucn ncy is corrected by
I heir natural teudriicy to seek a common
level. Will I Ilf facility ol funding the
proposed currency produce the same re
sult ? The solution oft hi* question in
volves the practicability of the projet.
We hold that nothing will serve aa an
uniform currency, hut that which is re
ceived as currency throughout the com
mercial world, to wit,.gold and silver—or
paper which i* at pleasure convnlihle in
fo gold and silver. No currency which is
divested ol ibis universality or converti
bility, can be prevented from being re
dundant, aud, ot course, depreciated.
liedundunt is merely a relative term. It
we have more money in proportion to
the <pmntum* of our exchange-, than other
nations have, our currency is redundant
and must depreciate ; if we have less, it
is deli, lent, and appreciates. Vacations
from the proportion,which exist- between
Hie money and quantum of exchanges of
oilier countries,are injurious to individual
enterprise and national prosperity. The
great object, therefore, ouglit to be, to
prevent these fluctuations. They arc
mo-1 eflecliialiy prevented by employing
a currency which is unircruiUi/ valuable,
(viz. gold and silver)—or vrliu h can, at all
limes, he converted info gold and silver,
ll is I lit* nature of such a currency to pre
serve a common level with that of olliei
nations, by flowing in or outcording’to
the deficiency or excess. Should an excess

l ank paper, the paper to the amount oi
that exees«, will be turned into specie

the equilibrium ; beyond which, there i«
no danger of a country’s fusing it- specie

Bui Mr. C. dlspen-cs with (hit converti
Iri/ity intotptrir, and substitutes in lieu o
i’, a convertibility into funded utoch, whicl
is to become the measure ot value, ii
stead of gold and silver.
Now, we bold that public stock, hIiIii

liable to be attccted by a greater vaitely
ol pci ilia lieu I and temporary causes than
almost any other ar*i< le of wine. Il is
.dlecled by tile quaulity ol it Ibiown into
the market by individual*—by every new
h’KH which the government makes—by
il»e demand for it as an investment ol
capital for the salve ol profit ; by every i
minorul war or of peace; by ihe wisdom,
patriotism or stability ol the government. '
Mr C. says “ that there is just irasnu io j
apprehend that emergencies may arise hi
the affairs of every nation, in which its
stability may be menaced by foreign force
or domestic insurrection. In micIi an j
«y mt, a panic might ensue, aim lhe> redit
«•( tin* currency be utterly annihilated.”
Should such an event occur, into what a
wretched condition would the nation be
plunged ! Every country, no mailer vylial
is the form ol its government, *s liable to
frequent commotions. On such occasions
a metallic currency rises in yaiue,ou ac
count of the universal estimation in which
it is In Id.
It must indeed be an age ofexpeiintent,
if even distinguished advocates can be
found for the abandonment of* a metallic
currency, for one not at ad connected yyith
Ihe metals, ami subject to fluctuations so
nameroiis and dcstm live !
But, Mr. C. says, that the mutual con
vertibility ol stock and currency will have
Ibis effect, that it there be too much of
one, it will be converted into the other.
and vice versa— So that there will he Keith
era redundancy nor defit iency of either.
When a redundancy occurs in the circu
lation, lie contends that the iale of inte
rest will fall in proportion tosucli excess,
beloyv the rale ol interest at which the
stoik is fumferl.—'I'he currency will
therefore disappear, and be converted
into stock.— But will il have this effect (
W >11 lire circulation which is excessive in
its relation to other countries, lints cor
red itself, through the operation of the
rate ol interest ? ’{’o maintain this pro
posrinn, air. must «oolen , tl at the
rale ol interest necessarily depends im the
quantity ami value of money in circula
lion. I5nt is it true that as yon multiply
or diminish the quantity of money, the
rale ol interest rises or falls f Certainly
it is not so.— I he Value of money and
lh»* rate of interest are .iff. cied by dill r
cut principles. The value of nuney de
pen■ Is upon the proportion between the
circulating medium ami the quantity <d
rxchangis. Tlieialeol inter, si, on the
contrary, depends upon thr reai or sttp
poccd|pr< fit of capital ; nnd the profit <>l
capital depends upon the proportion he.
tween the quantity nt capital, and the
demand lor its profitable employment —
W e should recollect that money am) ca
pital are not tile tame thing.
Hut to iiluslran the principle that the
rate of interest is not in proportion to the
quantity of money—As money is cliiefiv
considered llu* representative of vain , it
you inert ase if fourfold, it will take tour
times ss much to represent any given ar
tide as before—In that case, tub test will
not rise in this ratio—because (> per cent,

thus in 400—llcfore the increase of mo
ney, you got SG interest; ami since its
iitcivusc, you gtd 21, which cnly repre
sent- the same value that G previously did.
I»ut this whole doctrine ts developed by
Adam Smith in Ins chaptr on intire.t,
who says, “ The interest ofmouey, keep
ing pace always with the profits of stock,
(capital,) might in this manlier be greatly
diminished, though the value of money, or
Hit quantity of goods, which any parti
cular sum could purchase, was greatly
augmented."
Hence it seems clear, that there may be
too much currency afloat, without increa
sing the profits ol capital, and w till it, flic
rate of interest—on the contiary, thr cur
rency may be deficient, and, of course
appreciated ; yet fiom the limilerl range
of enterprise, the demand for capital may
be so small that the rale of interest will
not be equal to the interest of the landed
stock ; say G per cent. In the latter case,
Ibeic woulw be no demand lor currency ;
which would induce the holders nl stock
to wish to possess themselves ol it. lint
when the range of enterprise widens, and
the profit* of capital are great, the stock
would be conv* rted into currency to he
employed in active enterprises. This
operation might go on, nut I llie curren

were to go into effect, his test might, ah

hold the currency might find it lo their

though the currency already afloat only
equalled or fell short of its proper qnauti

so probable as the opposite one : where
