SIR, If the meeting at the Shire-hal! in' Carmarthen, wjiich was held on the 6th inst. had taken into comidenltion, tbe pro- bable solvency ol those person's who are in the habit of issuing promissory notes, and had merely resolved not to take in payment such notes as "were circulated by'persons who'se responsibdity was* doubted, the conduct of that meeting would, I think, be appiauded by every one but to cry down at random all notes trom private"comfMuiies under the value of;. ob-'iadisCTitninately,. ,the. issuing of. which is found.to be o/'the greatest convenience thryugh- cut the kingdom, and must continue to be so during tiie suspension .-of specie -at-the Bank pf England, -is a measure that requires some tetter reasons to jusufy the resolutions entered.int.o.than .haye as:yet.b.cen suggested. The :csoiutions state, that issuing of. notes under- five pounds each by country btnkers, &c. is become n ser/ous evil." ■■• P "Thatthereceiptofnotcs of the above description is attended with much Toss of time, trouble, and inconve- nience; and if not checked, will in a short time prevent iinv specie being brought m'to cirtuialion. That small 'notes are die means of raisins "the. pricp of provisions to the middling-and poorer classes, as tliey inust frequently submiLto exorbitant demands for what they "pur- chase with those notes, or pay a premium for their amount in specie." That for these reasons the meeting resolve.hot to re- ceive any small, notes, in payment, e-xcept..those .of-.die Bank of England, and invite the public at large to do the same," Now I should, imagine that it must be found, that the small notes issued by the Flank ol England will occasion the same loss of time, trouble, and inconvenience, as .he use of the small notes of private companies, and if not checked, are as likely to present any specie being brought into circulation and that these small notes of the Lank of England are in every respect liable to all the. objections the calculation of those of private com- panies, admitting -ofsucli individuals,, without .vhich it would be folly in the extreme to take them. And it seems very inexplicable, why a private note of 51. shall not be objected to, when five Of lit each are to be refused. The meeting, pedmps, did not take inio com-i- deration that the forgmc private notes cannot easily be done without instant detection, whereas the nunierorss forgeries on the Bank of England have been attended wiitrsevere loss to several of the lower c.Vfes of the peo- ple, and that during the present great scarcity of specie, the common concerns of life could not be carried 011 with any tolerable coln,vellicilce, unless-notes of a lesser amcfcmt tiian 51. are made use of. VERAX. [We have received various other communications on-the above subject, some of them couched iu terms of grear as- perity. As the sentiments of the writers, how-ever, are generally in unison with those of Visbas, we, .ha^e been induced to give a preference to his temperate opinion, j
