Of the amount of gold coined within the past year, about $85,000 were derived from Mexico, South America, and ine West Ludens; 612,000 from Africa; 8368,000 from the gold region of the United States, and about 313,000 froni sources not ascertained,

The annered statement exhibits the quantity of Gold received from the several districts of the United States, which have thus far produced it in quantities sufficient to be an object of regard, coinneacing with the year (1824. Previously to that period, gold had been received at the Mint oply

from North Carolina, from which quarter it was first transmitted for coinage i 1804. During the interval, however, from that date to 1823 inclusive, the average annual ainount had not exceeded $2,500.

In the report of 1st January, 1833, it was reinarked that the quantity of gold of the United States, brought to the Mint in the year 1832, was regarded, according to estimates entitled to great respect, as not much exceeding one-half of the quantity produced from the nines within that year; nearly an equal amount being supposed to have been exported un coined, or consumed in the arts. Nothing has since occurred to cieate a doubt of the correctness of that conjecture. It is altogether probable that the remark is equally true in regard to the last year, and that the amount of gold derived from the United States within that period has exceeded one million and a half of dollars. This sum, it is believed, is not less

thau about one-fifth of the aniouut of gold produced, within the saine pefriod, from all other sources, in Europe and America, estimated according to the best authorities.
