GOLD AND SILVER.
.. .. Prideaux says that gold and silver
were-much more plenty in the time of
David and Solomon, and for 1500
years afterwards, thaa they are at pre

being exhausted, and the gold and
silver with which the world abounded
being wasted by the barbarians, the
mines of Mexico, Peru and Brazil,
have not been able to repair the loss,
lie mentions two or three instances of
the vast riches of private men in an.
cient 'times'.' Pythias, the Lydian,
possessed gold and silver to the amount
of 34 mtUionsbf dollars of our money,
Marcus- Ctoems, - the Roman, after
000 tables, and giving every. citizen
' corn enough to hst him three months,
found the remainder of his estate to
be equal to 7 millions of dollars.

were often carried in triumph before

from conquered nrovincts. . The cold

amounted to more than 190 millions

by some learncdmeo, that David never

that an error has been made by the
tranacribera of this book Prideaux
conjectures that the talents of gold

for the temple might be of another
sort, of a far lew value than the Mosa

talents are valued by the Mosaic ui
