The revulsion that followed was most severely felt in the latter part of 1842 and the beginning of 1843. In 1848 the first de. posits of California gold were made at the United States Mint. The statement for 1851 in ihis and the preceding tables is not taken from that printed in Executive Document No. 132, 320 Congress, 1st session, but from a report that was prepared with more care, and presented to the House of Representatives in February, 1851, but not ordered to be printed.

XXVIII. AMERICAN SECURITIES HELD ABROAD. On the 4th of April, 1853, the Senate adopted a resolution requesting the Secretary of the Treasury to procure for the Senate the following information, viz. : “ The aggregate amount of federal, state, city, county, railroad, and other corporation bonds and stocks, or other evidences of debt, held in Europe or other foreign countries on the 30th of June, 1853, specifying separately, so far as the same can be ascertained, the amount of each of the above descriptions of bonds and stocks.” On the 2d of March, 1854, the Secretary of the Treasury communicated the results of his inquiries to the Senate (Senate Doc. 42), from which we gather the following information. In some cases the amounts are estimates merely, but generally they are from official sources. The column containing City, &c. Bonds, is supposed to include all of any amount, except those of Albany, N. Y. and Norfolk, Va. It is thought that in the column of Bank Capital is included all that was held by foreign stockholders at that date. Most of the canals are the property of the several States. The first table shows the aggregate foreign indebtedness; the second gives it more in detail.
