Where is all the Specie!

--Everybody is just now propounding this important question. Coppers are scarce as meteors, and, as for silver produce, the sight of a quarter or a half dollar is as a flaxseed poultice to diseased ocular. In the absence of anything more substantial, our ‘ "local"’ carries a bunch of keys to jingle just by way of ‘"Auld Lang Syne. "’ Banks! tap your founts, set the silver stream a-flowing, and receive the blessings of an afflicted community.
