The Secretary of the Treasury has not
yet given notice of an intention to with
draw this popular Loan from Sale at Par,
and until ten days notice is given, the
undersigned, as "General Subscription
Agent,'' will continue to supply Ihe public.
Tbe whole amount of ihe Loan author
ized is Five HnrilroH VI i l!i nn a Jf Dil Ij r:
Nearly Four Hundred Millions have been )
already subscribed for and paid into the
Treasury, mostly within Ihe U"t seven
mon.hi. The large de.mand from abroad,
and the rapidly increasing home demand
tor use as the basis for circulation by Na
tional Banking Associations now organiz
ing in all part of the country, will, in a
very short period absorb the balance.
Sale have lately ranged from ten to fif
leeu millions weekly, frequency exceed
ing three millions daily, and as it is well
known thai the Secretaiy of the Treasury
ha pmple and unfailing resources in the
Doties on Imports and Iternal Revenues,
and in ihe issue of the Interest bearing
Legal Tender Treasury Notes, it is almost
a certainty that he will not find it neces
saay, for a long time to come, to seek a
market lor any other long or permanent
Loans, The Interest and Principal of which
are payable in Gold.
Prudence and self. interest must force
the minds of those contemplating the for
mation of National Banking Associations,
as well as the minds ol all who have idle
money on their hands, to the prompt con
clusion that they should lose r.o time in
subscribing to this most popular Loan.
It will soon be beyond (heir reach, and
advance to a handsome premium, as was
the result with the ' Seven Thirty" Loan,
when it was all sold and could no longer
be subserided for at par.
IT IS A SIX PER CENT LOAN, THE
Interest and Principal payable in Coin,
thus yielding over Nine per cent, per an
num at the present rate of premium on
The Government requires all duties on
Imports to be paid in coin; thuse duties
have for a long time past amounted to
over a Qiarter of a Million of Dollars
daily, a sum nearly three times greater
than that reqnired in Ihe payment of the
Interest on ail Ibe 5-20' and other perma
nent Loans. So that it is hoped that the
surplus Coin in the Treasury, at no dis'ant
day, will eriabla the United States to re
sume specie payments upon all liabilities.
The Loan is cal.ed 5 20 from ihe lac!
that whilst the Bond may run fot twenty
years yet the Government has a right to
pay them olf in Gold at par, at any time
alter five years.
The interest is paid half yearly, viz: on
the first day of November and May.
Subscribers can have Coupon Bands,
which are payable io bearer, and are $50,
3100, S500, and $1000; or Registered bonds
of same denominations, and in addition,
S5,000 and 810,000. For Banking purpo
ses and for investments of Trust monies,
the Registered bonds are preferable.
These 6-20's cannot be taxed by States
cities, town, or counties, and the Govern
ment tax on tfiem is only 1$ per cent., on
the amontit of income, when the income
of the holder exceeds Six hundred dollars
per annum; all other investments, such a
income from Mortgages, Railroad Siock
and Bonds, e c, must pay from three to
five percent, tax on the income.
Banks and Backers throughout the coon-
try will continue lo dispose of the bonds;
and all orders by mail, or otherwise, prom
ptly attended lo.
1 he inconvenience of a lew days' delay
in the delivery ol the Bonds-is unavoida
ble, the demand being so great; but as in
terest commences from the day of sub
scription, no loss is occasioned, and every
efiVrt is baing made to diminish the delay.
