9 30 From this table it will be seen that in only one ward (fifth) is there a decrease of both personal and real estate. In wards 1, 2, and ?0 there is a decrease in real estate, but an increase of personal. The largest decrease in any ward is in ward 1, $480,100. The largest increase is in ward 11, $4,368,500. Ward 6 comes next, with $3,679,100. In ward 8 the increase is a little over $900,000 ; in ward 12, $612,300; in ward 10 the decrease of real overcomes the increase of personal by $281,400. Ward 9 makes a gratifying increase of $303,306.

A part of this increase is in buildings upon the new made land of the Back Bay. Ward 7 shows as yet but a small increase of real but adds to her personal the sum of $2,415,100. On the whole the aspect of affairs is gratilying -a marked increase of property, and though many improvements have been carried forward, a decrease in the rate of taxation.

The comparative relation in Boston and New York for some years has been as follows:-

THE CLEARING-HOUSE.

The largest amount of exchanges at the New York Clearing-house in any one day, was March 19, 1857, $40,515,703; for any one week, was the week ending May 4, 1857, $186,484,776. The heaviest year was that ending October 1st, 1857, $8,333,226,718. The Bankers' Magazine remarks:

The smallest amount of exchanges in any one day was October 30th, 1857, $7,867,674; for any one week, the week ending November 2, 1857, $57,663,026.

In London the Clearing-house, in 1839, had already attained such efficiency, that for the annual liquidation of £950,000,000 sterling, or £3,000,000 daily, it only required on an average each day, £200,000 in sovereigns, or rather in bank notes. At present, with a mass of transactions amounting to £1,500,000,000, or £4,500,000 sterling daily, instead of a proportionate addition to the £200,000 required for the daily balance being necessary, not a shilling is wanted ; the Clearing-house now dispenses completely with the use of bank notes; all is settled by the transfer of sums from one account to another in the books of the Bank of England.

This plan might be successfully adopted here. Instead of sending $1,200,000 in cash and certificates daily to the Clearing-house, as at present, to discharge balances, specie checks on the deposit bank would obviate all the risk and labor of counting this money every day. The London bankers have the advantage of us in this instance, and perform their exchanges of six millions sterling per day without the intervention of bank notes or coin, thus avoiding unnecessary labor, loss of time, and all risk of transmission to and from the place of payment.
