GOLD AND SILVER. In the " Annuaire de la Statistique," published at Paris, for 1848, we find a very interesting article by Chevalier on the past and present production of the precious metals. The subject is one of universal interest, as by gold and silver the values of all things are regulated and ascertained, and a steady and certain supply of these substances so necessary to all the operations of life, is of the first importance. We desire, therefore, to know what have been, and what now are, the sources of the supply. Our limits will only permit us to make brief extracts.

For three centuries, the greater part of the gold and silver used by civilized nations, was drawn from America. Mexico and Peru produced the largest quantity of silver, and New Grenada and Brazil the most gold; from Chili also a large supply was drawn.

Within the last thirty years, a considerable amount of gold has been procured within the United States.

During the same period, the production of the precious metals in Mexico and South America, have not been so large as formerly, owing probably to the civil wars which have convulsed that part of the world.

Since the commencement of the present century, the quantities produced in Europe and Asia have been on the increase. From the Russian dominions especially, there have recently been very extraordinary supplies of gold. The ranges of the Ural and Altain mountains are immense depositories of the precious metals, a fact known to the ancients, and mentioned by Herodotus, but the knowledge of which was lost. They have been again explored and their riches developed; and the gold now obtained from Russia exceeds that which is received from all the rest of the world besides. The total production of the mines of Gold and Silver in America from the discovery
