The monetary history of the past viar, however, has been peculiar, both iu thu movements of gold, which have been incruit-ed, and in the cliini'is that commonly occur with thu changes of the seasons, but have thi.s year been less liiaiked.

It thus ap pears that tho depletion of the leserve is the conseqtienco of tlie increase of the cir ciilJtion of gold certificates, and this, it is shown, grows out of thu ililliciilties which tho treasury encounters in thu return of the notes anil bilver certificates of small denominations wiiieh were sent out iu thu autumn for moving the crops.
