HEAL Aj^EmSENTATIVE MONEY. From an excellent report in the Darlington Tunes of two lectures on the currency, delivered by Mr. Jonathan Duncan in that town last week, we give the following extract, as a oassage which we are informed was highly effective:â Having pointed out what lie considered to be the evils of the present system, Mr. Duncan proceede3 to recommend a system by which be thought trade manufactures of every description would be rendered prosperous, and pauperism, crime, and poverty exterminated by which we might get rid of the army, so far as internal defence was concerned, and also of the police and by which all young men of twenty- one. and young girls of eighteen years of age, might marryâ and this was not the least important part of the doctrine he advocated, for he believed, with Dr. Franklin, that early marriages were the great safeguards both of mnnly and wo- manly virtue. He divided money under two headsâreal money and representative money. By real money he did mean gold and silver alone, lie considered every thing wes real money which was the result of labour, useful to man, had an exchangeable value, and for which one man would give his labour to another man. He considered the earth ami the crops that grew upon it, ships and railways, and houses and cattle of every description useful to man as .Jf'Z' real money. We read in Holy Scripture that Job was a rich man, but no intimation was given that he had a large stock of bullionâhis riches, his money, consisted of a large number of sheep and oxen. He (Mr. Duncan) was not the inventor of a system he was only its expositorâthe system he ad\'o. cated was very ancient. A man might, therefore, be rich in real money without having any gold. After some further remarks on real money, the lecturer came to speak of repre- sentative money, which, he observed, stood in the same rela- tion to real money as a portrait did to the person it was designed to delineate." The representative money," so often recommended in our columns, was, of course, the system Mr. Duncan alluded to.âJerrold's Weekly Neics.
