Although.. unable to go at- length. into theqiuestion of what ought to be the interest of money-in- thiscolony, we feel bound to point out the follow ing instance of the injurious'effect of the rate which money does bear at the present time.

Such a rate of interest bespeaks an unhealthy condition, and therefore your colonial secutity cannot be good. If it were, the rate of in; terest could not he so high." Now, let us pause for ...
