CrVITEO STATES 5-30'S.
The Secretary of ihe Treasury liae not
yel given notice of anj intention to with
draw this popular Loan from Sale at Par,
and until leu days notice is given, the
undersigned, as "General Subscription
Agent' will continue to supplj the public.
The whole amount of the Loan author
ized is Five Hundred Millions of Dollars.
Nearly Four Hundrsd Millions have been
already subscribed for and paid into the
Treasury, mostly within the last seven
mon hs. The large demand from abroad,
and the rapidly increasing horr.e demand
for use as ihe basis for circulation by Na
tional Banking Associations now organiz
ing in all parts of the country, will, in a
very short period absorb the balance.
Sales have lately ranged from ten lo fif
teen millions weekly, frequency exceed
ing three millions daily, and as it is well
known that ihe Secretary of the Treasury
has nm pie and unfailing tesources in the
Duties on Imports and I'ernal Revenues,
and in the issue of the Interest bearing
Legal Tender Treasury Notes, it is a!mot
a certainty that he will not find it neces
saay, lor a long time io come, lo seek a
market for any other long or permanent
Loans, The Inteiest and Principal of which
are payable in Gold.
Prudence and self interest must force
the minds of those contemplating the for
malion of National Banking Associations,
as well as the minds of all who have idle
money on their hands, to the prompt con
clusion thai they should lose t.o time in
subscribing lo this mo-t popular Loan.
It will soon be beyond their reach , and
advance (o a handsome premium, as was
Ihe result with the "Seven Thirty" Loan,
when it was all sold and could no longer
be snbsrrided for at par.
ITLS A SIX PER CEMT 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 dnties on
Imports to be paid in coin; those duties
have for a long time past amounted io
over a Qiarter of a Million of Dollars
daily, a sum nearly three limes area'er
than that required in the payment of the
Interest on all ihe 5-20's and oiher perma
nent Loans. So that it is hoped that the
surplus Coin in the Treasury, at no dis'ant
day, will enable the Uni'ed States to re
sume specie payment- upon all liabilities.
The Loan is cai.ed 5 20 from the (act
that whilst the Bonds may run for twenty
years yel the Government has a right to
pay them off in Gold at par, at any lime
atter five years.
The IntereM is paid half yearly, viz: on
the first day ol November and May.
Subscribers can have Coupon Bonds,
which are payable to bearer, and are 50,
S!00, $500, and $1000; or Registered bonds
of sme denominations, and in addition,
S5,000 and $10,000. For Banking purpo
ses and for m vestments of Trust monies,
Ihe Registered bonds are preferable.
These 5-20's cannot be taxed by States
cities, towns, or counties, and the Govern
men! lax on iliem is only 1 per cent., on
the amount of income, when ihe income
of ihe holder exceeds Six hundred dollars
per annum; all other investments, snch a-
income from Mongages, Railroad Siock
and Bonds, e c, must pay from three to
five percent, lax on the income.
Banks and Bankers throughout the conn
try will continue to dispoe of the bonds;
aid all orders by mail, or otherwise, prom
ptly attended io.
The inconvenience of a few days delay
in the delivery ot the Bonds is unavoida
ble, the demand being so great; but a in
terest commences from the day of sub
scription, no loss is occasioned, and every
effort is bsiug made to diminish the delay.
