The San Francisco Picayune publishes the following statement of gold dust manifested and shipped from that port, during the year ending December 31, 1851, which swells the amount to $39,627,307. We subjoin the statement of the Picayune, which purports to be taken from the Custom-house records:—

For January $2,929,888 ! For August $3,311,100

Total $34,492,634 12

The difference is large, over five millions of dollars, but is easily accounted for from the known fact that the steamers are invariably cleared before the precise amount of treasure can by any possibility be known.

NEW YORK, PHILADELPHIA, AND BOSTON BANKS.

TBEm CAPITAL AND DIVIDENDS COMPABED.

The dividends and capital of the Boston, New York, and Philadelphia banks, for

the year 1851, have been, according to a statement in the Bank Note Reporter, comparatively as follows:—

Average Capital. Dividends. Per cent.

Boston. $22,710,000 $1,744,876 7.68

New York. 28,051,460 2,610,566 9.93

Philadelphia 7,726,000 747,600 9.67

The dividends in New York are on the working capital for the year. There are in New York ten banks, with nearly $7,000,000 of capital, which have been in operation but a few months, and have not yet declared full dividends. In Bosron the increase of capital has been more rapid, and has, therefore, affected the average of dividends. Comparatively, the capitals and average dividends in Boston and New York have been as follows:—

BOSTON. NEW TOEK.

Capital. Dividends per cent. Capital. Dividends per cent.

1845 $17,480,000 6.36 $28,084,100 6.21

1846. 18,180,000 6.67 23,084,100 7.09

1847 18,180,000 7.00 23,084,100 7.26

1848 18,920,000 7.66 23,284,100 8.09

1849 19,280,600 7.68 24,457,890 8.28

1850 20,710,000 7.68 27,440,270 8.69

1861 28,660,000 7.68 28,051,460 8.98

The capital now in operation in New York is $34,603,100, and the amount and competition will probably affect materially the dividends for 1851.

CONDITION OF THE BAMS OF SOUTH CAROLINA.

In the Merchants' Magazine for September, 1851, (vol. xxv., page 868,) we published a detailed statement of the condition of snch of the Banks of South Carolina as had accepted the provisions of the act of December 18, 1840, from their returns made to the Controller General, for the 80th of June, 1851; and in the November number (same volume, page 615) we gave the aggregate of all the banks in that State, on or near the 31st of August, 1851.
