DOLGELLEY. PRIVATE BANKS.—A correspondent from this town, referring to the failure of the Bank of Messrs. Spooner and Attwood, Birmingham, suggests as a protection to the public in future, that an Act of Parliament be at once passed to provide that all private Banks be required to publish a balance sheet showing their liabilities and assets; and that all those neglecting to do so, at the ex- piration of each half-year, shall thereby forfeit the right of issuing notes, and which fact should be published in the London Gazette." He thinks that such an Act would have a most beneficial and salutary effect, and that Solvent Firms would doubtless have no hesita- tion in complying with the regulation, and only the in. solvent ones would quarter and shelter themselves un- der their present privileged privacy." The subject is certainly an important one but we are not in a posi. tion, at present, to offer any opinion upon the merits of the above suggestion.
