pro rata from banks organized in States having a circulation exceeding that provided for by the act entitled "An act to amend an act entitled "An act to provide for a national currency secured by pledge of United States bonds, and to provide for the circulation and redemption thereof," approved March 3, 1865. To ascertain which the Comptroller of the Currency shall, under the direction of the Secretary of the Treasury, make a statement showing the amount of circulation to be retired by each of such banks, and shall, when circulation is required, make a requisition for such amount upon such bank, commencing with banks in States having the largest excess of circulation, and reducing only the circulation of those having the greatest proportion in excess, leaving undisturbed those having a smaller proportion until those in greater excess have been reduced to the same grade ; and continuing thus to make the reduction in such States having an excess until the circulation of such banks shall, as nearly as possible, be equalized among the States and Territories, according to the appraised value of all property, real and personal, within such States and Territories ; the same to be ascertained by the certified statements of the governors of such States and Territories made biennially to the Secretary of the Treasury. But this act shall not apply to $150,000,000 of said circulation which shall be distributed according to representation in Congress. And upon failure of such bank to return the amount so required within one year aforesaid it shall be the duty of the Comptroller of the Currency to sell at public auction, having given twenty days? notice in a newspaper printed in Washington city and New York city; an amount of bonds deposited by said bank as security for its circulation equal to the circulation to be withdrawn from such bank, and with the proceeds to redeem so many of the notes of such bank, as they come into the treasury, as will equal the amount required from it: Provided, That the circulation herein authorized shall be issued only as circulation is withdrawn, so that the aggregate circulation shall not at any time exceed $300,000,000." And the question being put, Will the House agree thereto?

“SEC. 2. And be it further enacted, That section 22 of the act to which this is supplementary be so amended that said section shall read as follows: In order to furnish suitable notes for circulation, the Comptroller of the Cur. rency is hereby authorized and required, under the direction of the Secretary of the Treasury, to cause plates and dies to be engraved in the best manner, to guard against counterfeiting and fraudulent alterations, and to have printed therefrom, and numbered, such quantity of circulating notes, in blank, of the denominations of $1, $2, 83, 85, $10, $20, $50, $100, $500, and $1,000, as may be required to supply, under this act, the associations entitled to receive the same; which notes shall express upon their face that they are secured by United States bonds deposited with the Treasurer of the United States, by the written or engraved signatures of the Treasurer and Register, and by the imprint of the seal of the treasury; and shall also express upon their face the promise of the association receiving the same to pay on demand, attested by the signatures of the president or vice-president and cashier. And the said notes shall bear such devices and such other statements, and shall be in such form as the Secretary of the Treasury shall, by regulation, direct: Provided, That not more than one-sixth part of the notes furnished to an association shall be of a less denomination than $5, and that after specie payments shall be resumed no association shall be fur. nished with notes of a less denomination than $5.

“SEC. 3. And be it further enacted, That the Secretary of the Treasury is hereby authorized and directed to prepare and issue, as hereinafter directed, bonds of the United States, either coupon or registered, to the amount of $600,000,000, payable at the pleasure of the United States after 20 years from date in lawful money, and bearing interest at the rate of four per cent. per annum, payable semi-annually in coin. The bonds hereby authorized shall be of such denomination, not less than $50, as may be deemed expedient by the Secretary of the Treasury.

"SEC. 4. And be it further enacted, That the Secretary of the Treasury is hereby empowered to dispose of the bonds hereby authorized to be issued for lawful money of the United States at not less than their par value.

“SEC. 5. And be it further enacted, That each and every banking association organized and doing business under and by virtue of the act to which this is supplementary is hereby required to deposit with the Treasurer of the United States, within six months after the passage of this act, an amount of the bonds hereby authorized to be issued equal to the amount of bonds then on deposit by said associations, respectively, with the said Treasurer as security for the circulation and government deposits of such associations; and the said Treasurer is hereby authorized to receive from such associations the bonds hereby authorized to be issued in lieu of any other bonds held by him; and in case any such association shall fail to comply with the requirements of this section within six months from the passage of this act the Comptroller of the Currency shall forthwith appoint a receiver to wind up the business of such association in the manner provided by the act to which this is supplementary.

“SEC. 6. And be it further enacted, That from and after the passage of this act no bonds, except those to be issued under this act, shall be received by the Treasurer of the United States as security for the circulation of any such association, now or hereafter to be organized, or for security for United States deposits.

“SEC. 7. And be it further enacted, That the Secretary of the Treasury be, and he hereby is, directed to buy in open market, at the lowest market price, any of the gold-bearing interest bonds of the United States issued under any former act of Congress, with the lawful money received in exchange for the bonds hereby authorized to be issued; and he is hereby prohibited from using or disposing of in any other manner the lawful money 80 received in exchange for such bonds; and he is hereby further directed to cancel and destroy, in accordance with the manner now provided by law, each and every bond so purchased as aforesaid under the provisions of this act.

"SEC. 8. And be it further enacted, That all acts and parts of acts inconsistent with this act are hereby repealed ;" The question was put, Will the House agree thereto?
