aj Gov. Briggs of Massachusetts, stated in a
temperance meeting held at the Boston State House,
that in eighty-one townships of that State, thirteen
thousand drunkards had been restored to 'sobriety
through the instrumentality of Washingtonian
Monnra.—We learn from the Pittsburg papers,
that on Monday morning, of last week, Charles
Deil, a painter by trade, was taken to the Mayor's
office, with his throat partially cut. His wife and
two children were found murdered in his house,
and, as it appears, by his own hands. The deed
appears to have been perpetrated with an axe. Ha
attempted also to murder a third child which esca
ped with a partial but severe injury, after which he
had attempted to cut his own throat with a razor.
Dcil is described as a dissipated drunken wretch,
and assigns no other reason for these horrible acts
than a conceit of jealousy. The third child it is
said will recover of its wound, end Deil'a own
wound is said not to be dangerous.
co' The New Orleans Tropic states that a duel
took place on the 24th ult. between Gen. William
Debuys, the State Treasurer, and Mr. Richard Ri
chardson, which is likely to be attended with fatal
consequences, and deprive the State of a valuable
servant. The parties met at the Orleans Ball
Room, at 12 o'clock, and fought with sharpened
foils. Mr. Richardson was severely wounded in the
shoulder, and General Debuys was run through the
lower part of his body. But faint hopes were en
tertained of his recovery.
from the Philadelphia Forum.
Coinage of One Dollar Gold Pieces.
The question of a gold dollar coinage, was dis
cussed in the 25th Congress, and has been revived
at the present session. At the first glance it would
seem that they would furnish a most convenient
coin for general use, but the correspondence between
Mr. M'lCtr, Chairman of the Committee of Ways
and Means, and R. M. PATTERSON, Esq. Director
of the Mint in Philadelphia, furnishes the most
convincing proof of the inexpediency of the at
tempt. One of the most obvious objections urged
is, that the size of the gold dollar is too diminutive•
Gold being more valuable than silver, as 16 to I,
and heavier in the proportion of 27 to 16, the vol
umes of corresponding values of these metals, will
be as 1 to 27—that is a gold dollar will bo but one
twenty-seventh the size of the silver dollar, and
nearly one-third less than the small silver half dime
or five cent piece. Such a coin could be es easily
lost as spent, and having a greater surface, in pro
portions to its value, than any other, would be more
reduced by wear, which is a cause of great waste in
all metallic circulation, and particularly so in a
metal as precious as gold.
. .
Another objection urged with great force in the
correspondence is, that the dollar has already its
representative in silver and any sum less than $2 50,
(the quarter eagle) can be carried in silver without
inconvenience. It would seem to be desirable that,
in our metallic currency, the larger sums should be
paid in gold, and the smaller ones in silver; yet in
point of fact, silver is used oven for the largest pay
ments, and it does not therefore seem likely, that
gold cou!d be introduced for smell amounts, where
its less weight is by no means so important. If the
gold dollar be introduced, it must be as a substitute
for the same amount of silver; it becomes then an
impotent question, whether the proportions of the
two metals in our country, are such as to allow of
the substitution. The best evidence, in Mr. Patter
son's opinion, which can be resorted to, in this in
quiry, is presented by the relative quantities, which
have been coined in the United States ; as there are
$39,125,688 of gold, and $62,984,685 of silver, or
nearly double the amount of silver over gold, in
The espetience of the Mint, showethat the shun
told mine , ere not so much desired by the eommu
nity, as those of a larger size. Of the thirty-nine
millions of gold coinage, but little more than four
millions, was in quarter-eagles. The Treasury De.
partment has, at different periods, given instructions
to confine the gold coinage to quarter-eagles, as far
as it could be clone consistently with the law, which
requires that in the denominations of coins deliv
ered, the wishes of the depoaiter shall be complied
with, unless when impracticable or inconvenient to
do so." Still, the proportion of this coinage was
small, because the depositors expressed a preference
for eagles and half-eagles.
In considering the expediency of the proposed
innovation on our coinage, Mr. Pattersori gives some
interesting statistics, in reference to the present prac
tice of those countries which issue the largest
amounts of gold. At the head of these is England
—its smallest gold coin is the half-sovereign, worth
$2,42. In France the smallest is the twenty franc
piece, worth $3,84. Russia, a gold producing coun
try, has no gold coin less than the three-rouble
piece, worth $2,39. The ducat of Austria, South
ern Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden ie worth
about $2,25; the five-guilder piece of the Nether
lands $2,00 and the Sardinian ten-lire $1,92. Tho
favorits gold coin of Spanish America, the doub
loon, is worth about $15,55 ; though the quarter and
event the eighth, aro not uncommon. It appears,
then, that in those countries, whose example may
command respect, the minimum for gold coin is not
very different from our own; exceptions nre how
ever presented by Spain and Columbia, where six
teenths of the doubloon or 4 , gold dollars," are in
use. In Spain, they are placed on a par with the
pillar dollar, as a legal tender, though even at our
own high valuation of gold, they are worth but
about 97 cents. It is not therefore to be wondered
at, that they should be kept in circulation, though
no gold piece of this value has been coined in Spain
for more than twenty years.
The correspondence we have above referred to,
elates as worthy of particular note, that the issuing
of small gold coins, after being introducer! in sever
al countries, has been abandoned by them. The
experiment was twice tried in Great Britain. In
1762, the quarter guinea (worth $1 27) was intro
duced; but is was found so inconvenient, that or
ders were given to collect the pieces as they came
into the bank, to be melted down; and now very
few specimens remain. Another trial was of the
one-third guinea, or seven shilling piece ($1 69,)
which was issued in 1806, and from that date until
1813. It was discontinued upon the enactment of
the new coinage law of 1816, which provides for
no gold coin less than the half-soverign. Russia
formerly issued roubles, (75 cents,) and even half
roubles, (27i cents) in gold; but for many years
there has been no gold coin used in that country less
than the three rouble piece. In Portugal gold dollar
pieces were formerly in general circulation ; but it
was found expedient by the Government to call
them in, and the smallest gold piece now coined is
the half-crown, worth $2 90.
The last objection to tho dollar of gold, which
Mr. Patterson urges, is their pecular liability to
be counterfeited ; they are so light and small that
the most important of all sensible teas of gold, its
great specific gmvity, is by no means so available
as in the larger coins now used. In proof of this,
there were sent to the Committee of Ways and
Means, silver pieces, gilt by the electro-type pro
cess, rigidly of the same size as the gold dollar
would be; and it is impossible to distinguish the
true from the counterfeit. From these various ob
jections, it is very evident that the idea of coining
the gold dollar must be abandoned as impossible.
