In my former communication it
was iaid that . $1,600,000,000 at CO
pounds to. the 1,000 vould we:
9,600,000 pounds. It should have
been put 96,000,000 pounds. Simi
lar!? 600,000 pounds should have
been 6,000,000 pounds, and 9,000,
000 pounds should have been 90,..
If a carload be estimated at 20,
000 pounds, it would require 4,500
cars to carry 90,000,000 pounds,
making a tram so ne 20 or 25 miles
long. The respective weights of the
two metals will exercise an influence
to wards determining the prefercnc3
for the one or th other metal.
Other thiDgs being equal it has al
ways been the tendency of commerce
and trade to relieve itself of burdens,
and to make the exchanging of pro
ducts as easy and as little expensive
asjwdible. Thi3 ha3 always been
d"e in the interest of the producer,
for according to the nature of
things, the products of labor must
bear the expense incurred in their
handling. If a buyer has ten thous
and dollars to spend in the purchase
of cotton, and it costs him one hun
dred dollars to ship the money to
the place of purchase, he can pay
only $9,900 for the cotton, in which
case the producer eyidently pays the
cost of transporting the ironey to
the place of purchase. It makes no
difference in what way the $100
paid, toe result is the same. The
buyer would no doubt make the
price of cotton such as to reimburse
him for any expense incident to pur
chasing and paying for the cotton,
which would amount to the same
thing as if he had paid the full ten
JblSpd dallars for the cotton, and
nthenTharged and withheld $100, ex
peqse incurred in transporting and
handling the money to pay for it
I; is evident then that money should
be portable, and other things being
equal that metal which has the
greater value and there' ore is the
more easily carried, far a given
amount, has the economic advantage
ii its favor as a-circnlating medium,
capability of being easily concealed
or hidden is another element in con
nection with portability that has a
determining it fluehce in making a
metal popular as money. Men dc
not usually like to display the
amount of money they have on their
persons. They do not want it to be
generally known that they have a
large amount . of money in their
houBea, to show that one has much
money on his pen.on, or in his house
would expose the party to the danger
f of -being robbed, if not murdered
T oivtum reaauu uiuuujr iub wiuui
,i)e easily concealed has never been
popular, and until the hearts of men
shall have become much improved
b . ver will be. large pieces of metal
with little value are not so easily
concealed as small puces of another
metal of greater value. The more
valuable metal being the most easily
concealed, other thingCljeing equal,
will be preferred as a money me'al.
Another quality of money is in
destructibility. Metals that are not
easily corroded or in any way easily
destroyed ere the most desirable.
Take iron for example, it is easily
corroded, lhat is, it will rust and
waste very ' easily. This property
renders it less fit to be used as money
than some other metals. Those
metals. thrft are the least destructible
are the IcEt adsp'ed. far mote;-. The
ordeal by fire is another test, for the
better qualities of a money material.
Some metals undergo no less when
exposed to fire. -Those metals are
considered the best for keeping and
are therefore the most desirable as
'! Homogeneity is also a quality of a
good money, metal. There is good
iron nd bat iror, which-is another
reason why iron is not a good metal
to be used as a mecium of exchange.
There are.other metals which are al
ways the same, no matter in what
quarter of the world they are found.
Those metals being always one thing
so far as the metallic q ?ality of good
ness or badness is concerned have
been found to be more suitable as
money metals than other metals.
Divisibility is also an essential qual
ity of a money metal, that it is de
sirable that the metal should be c p
able of division into small denomi
nations withtmt loss. It should be
a metal that will suffer no loss at be
ing cut into' parts. The parts put
togather should be of the satm yalue
as they were when separated, that ia,
four quarters, or two halves should
be worth just as much, neither more
nor less than the piece that was di
vided. Stability of Talaris, a very im
portant element of moruj metal.
The metal should be worth, a
nearly as possible, as much at one
season of the year, or rather one
year as another. Any change in
the yalue of the metal creates dis
turbances that are far reaching,
Change of value creates doubt and
doubt In matters --of trade are
always damaging to the commercial
interests of. n country. Ifatiots
hive devoted their best talent to the
qnestien of s'ability ot value in the
money metal to be used, ai d the
present money of the more cnlight
eied nations show the result. If i
supposed better undirstanding cf
the question ehall suggest
change at any time in the future,
either near or remot, a change will
be made, otherwise not. The en
lightened nations are interested in
the stability of value of their
money oetal whatever that ixetal
may be. The metal that suffers the
least variation of yalue from year to
year, will nave the confidence cf
men, and will be held in the highest
Another quality of a money metal
i that it should bo known easily.
In the ordinary ruBh cf business,
men have not the time to examine
every piece cf metal to ascertain its
purity. The metal therefore should
be Euch as to be easily recognized.
Having stated the seven essential
ualities which a material to be
used as money should posse33, let us
examine a little more closely than
was done at the beginning what the
functions of money are.
The inconvenience that would
occur of not having some one mate
rial which every person is willing to
receive for the products of labor
which he possesses is no doubt evi
dent to tne reader. Money reme
dies this inconvenience by serving,
(1) as a medium cf exchange, (2)
as a common measure of value, (3)
as a standard of value, (4) as a store
"in tne lirst form money is aims
ply any co modity esteemed by all
personB, any article of focd, clcth
sg or ornsment which any person
will readily receive, and which
therefore every person desires to
bare by him in greater or lees quan
tity, in order that he may have the
means of procuring necessaries of
life at any time." Now if any ar
ticle be selected and used for a con
siderable time, it becomes common
to estimate the worth of ether artU
cles in quantities cf the selected
one. Suppoee that corn was the
chosen article, then any other com
modity would be valued at so much
corn. Ifce people would become
accustomed to using corn in esti
mating the value cf other articles,
and woald therefore make corn the
standard by which to measure the
v.Iue of other commodities. It is in
this way that money becomes a
common measure of value, and by
continued use as a common measure,
it ultimately becomes a standard of
value, when money acts is a medium
f exchange it circulates backward
ind forward, keeping near the same
srots, and may sometimes return to
the same hands. For example a
farmer may Eell flour one day to a
merchant, receiying the cash for it,
and pay it to a laborer, who in turn
may go to the merchant and pur j
chase the same flour, and pny the
same money for it. The merchant
now has the same money he paid
tbe farmer, holding it ready to pay j
o the same or some other farmer
for some product of the farm.
This goes on eo long a the farmer, !
aborer, and merchant conclude to
keep the money moving. If, how
ever, in the course of time any one j
of them desires to do eo, he may lay
ops part to serve him on some fu
ture occasion. When thus laid up,
it is said to be a store of value. It
ought to be clear that the material
used as a store of value should be
such as every person wants and snch
as it is like y that all persons in the
future will want. Wheat, corn, pota
toes, cloth, and other perishable
material would net serve the pi r
pose, tltnough tiiamonds, jeweuy
etc might do 83 under certain cir-
cuma ances- Men do not always
want to s. end their money as soon
as they have made . it Many men
like to keep some money about them
to be need aj occasion may nq lire,
and particularly to give them tht
gjod feeling of being conscion
thtt they have something which
they are certain will serve tbem a
good purpose at any time when their
pleasure, conyenience, or. necessities
shall require it. Such men are not
always misers. In fact they are in
the majority of ewes thrifty aLd
far seeing, making use of the pros
perous present to aid tbem in what
ma? be a lees p osi-erous future.
. The younger reader may receive
help hereafter by remembering the
following recapitulation :
- Money serves as (1) a medium of
exchange ; (2) a commcn measure oj
value; (3) a standard of value; (4)
a store of yalue.
The qualities of a safe material to
be used as money are (1) utility and
value ; (2) portability ; (3) inde
strnctibility ; (4) homogeneity; (5)
divisibility , (6) stability of yalue ;
(7) cogniz ability, Savignt.
