Laid on the table, and ordered to be printed, and that 500 additional copies be sent to the Senate.


Treasury Department, March 16, 1840.

Sir: By a resolution of the Senate, adopted the 30th of December last, I am directed to report:

1st. A table of the import and export of gold bullion, with the excess of each, annually, from the commencement of the Federal Government, or as far back as the returns in the Treasury Department will enable the table to be made up.

2d. A like table of gold coin.

3d. A like table of silver bullion.

4th. A like table of silver coin.

5th. A table of recapitulation, showing the total annual imports and exports of coin and bullion in one column, and the excess in two other columns, for the same length of time.

6th. A detailed statement of the weekly exportations of coin and bullion for the year 1839, showing the names and residences of the exporters and their consignees in foreign countries.

7th. A detailed table of exports and imports of coin and bullion of the United States, for the year 1839.

8th. A table of the annual coinage of gold and silver at the Mint of the United States, and the branch Mints, from the time they were respectively established.

9th. A table of the annual product of the gold mines of the United States, from the time of their discovery.

The whole of said tables made up to the year 1839.

In compliance with this resolution, I have the honor to transmit to the Senate the annexed documents.

1st. A report (A) from the Register of the Treasury, accompanied by tables, showing:

The import and export of gold bullion annually, since 1820, being as far back as the returns in the Treasury Department will enable the table to be made up;

A like table of gold coin;

A like table of silver bullion;

A like table of silver coin;

A table showing the annual export of American coin and bullion since 1827; and

A table showing the total annual import and export of bullion and coin, and the excess of each, since the 1st of October, 1820.

2d. The original returns made by the collectors of the imports and exports of coin and bullion, with the names of the importers and exporters, for the year 1839 (B).

The returns made by the collectors will not enable the department to furnish the precise information required under the sixth and seventh clauses of the resolution. Hence the returns are transmitted, as containing all the department possesses in relation to those branches of the resolution (B).

3d. Documents C, D, and E, show the coinage at the Mint and branch Mints, from the time they were respectively established, and also, all the information which the department possesses in relation to the product of the gold mines of the United States.

All which is respectfully submitted.

LEVI WOODBURY,

Mint of the United States,
March 12, 1840.

Sir: In a letter of the 2d January last, you sent me a copy of a resolution of the Senate, calling upon you for information on various points respecting the precious metals, and you particularly directed my attention to the following items in this resolution:

“8th. A table of the annual coinage of gold and silver at the Mint of the United States and the branch mints, from the time they were respectively established.

“9th. A table of the annual product of the gold mines of the United States from the time of their discovery.”

The table of the coinage at the Mint and its branches I have now the honor to send you; but my inquiries have not enabled me to prepare the second table called for, nor do I believe it practicable to do so with any approach to accuracy.

On a former occasion I took great pains, at the request of Mr. Gallatin and yourself, to determine, if possible, the production of the United States gold mines, in order to answer inquiries made on the subject by Baron Humboldt. I wrote to and consulted geologists, and miners, and brokers, and workers in gold; but the information I received was so imperfect and contradictory, and, in many cases, so improbable, that I was obliged to abandon the hope of finding even a plausible approach to the truth.

On the present occasion, I placed my reliance on the superintendents of the mints at Charlotte and Dahlonega, who are placed in the midst of the most productive gold regions, and whose official positions might be supposed to afford them means of accurate information, if it can be obtained at all. I accordingly applied to these gentlemen. In an answer received on the 3d ultimo, from the superintendent of the Dahlonega Mint, he writes that “it is utterly impossible for him to go beyond the usual vague guesses in saying what proportion of the gold bullion obtained in the mines is coined, or sold to manufacturers in the form of bullion, but that, with me, he is of opinion that the greater part is coined.” In a letter, received yesterday from the Charlotte Mint, the superintendent presents an estimate of the production of the gold mines in that section of the country, which, though the best that his information could furnish, he acknowledges not to be satisfactory to himself, and which certainly could not be made the foundation of such a table as is asked for in the resolution of the Senate.

Very respectfully, your faithful servant,

R.M. PATTERSON,
Director.

Hon Levi Woodbury,
Secretary of the Treasury.

Branch Mint of the United States,
Charlotte, North Carolina, February 10, 1840.

Sir: Yours of the 2d ultimo, enclosing the resolutions of the Senate of the 30th December last, as regards (among other subjects) the gold mines of this region, has been duly received.

You request me to afford you “all the information in my power with regard to the particulars involved in the ninth or last item – being the annual product of the gold mines of the United States, and the time of their discovery.”

I had been, for some time previous to the receipt of your letter, acquiring such information, as a correspondence with intelligent gentlemen, and a close observation of such mining operations as came under my notice, would elicit ; but I regret that the materiel as yet collected will not allow me to reply as satisfactorily to your letter as I could wish. Should, however, future investigation, and the inquiries I have set on foot, lead to any interesting information on the points presented by you, I will take the liberty of making it the subject of an early communication.

I will take the latter part of your query first – as to the time of the discovery of the mines.

In November, 1824, Professor Olmsted, now of Yale college, then professor of chemistry and mineralogy in the university of North Carolina, presented a report on the geology of North Carolina to the board of agriculture, in which he estimates the “gold region to cover an area of not less than 1,000 miles.” This paper, accompanied by some geological speculations, was published, in 1825, in the American Journal of Science. Subsequent discoveries, however, assure us, that a succession of gold mines exist from the vicinity of the Potomac river to the State of Alabama. But it is of this immediate region that I shall venture, or am expected, to say any thing.

The first mine discovered in this State was Reid’s, in the southeast part of Cabarrus county, in 1801 or 1802. Parker’s mine, in Montgomery county (which adjoins Cabarrus), was discovered in 1815, on the same stream (Meadow creek). In about 1818, Dunn’s mine was discovered in this county (Mecklenburg), about eight miles northwest of Charlotte. The mines of Burke county were discovered in 1828. From these periods down to the present time new mines, of more or less value, have been daily discovered. These mines are of two kinds:

  1. Alluvial deposites, or surface mines, and
  2. Vein mines.

The first class occupied the early attention of miners, and is still extensively carried on in Burke, Rutherford, and other auriferous regions of the western part of North Carolina. The precious metal is here obtained by washing away the sand (or pebbles of quartz), and is a simple process.

The latter class (the vein mines) constitute, principally, the mines in the vicinity of Charlotte, where the gold is found by excavation; and is not distinguishable, by the eye, in the ore. The ore is reduced by machinery, using quicksilver for detaching the gold from the earthy substances. These veins are considered by miners to constitute the most considerable depositories of metallic matter. “They,” says Professor Mitchell, the present professor of mineralogy at the Univeisity of North Carolina, “consist of quartz, of a porous, vescular structure, coutaining oxyde of iron, iron pyrites, and gold.” Such veins are not, as might be supposed from the general application of the term, tubes filled with metal, or ore, but extended plates, or laminæ, of unequal thickness; and they differ essentially from beds, in that they do not run parallel with the direction of the strata, but cross them vertically at different degrees of inclination.

Most of the metallic veins in the mines of this region are from six inches to four feet in thickness, and their course or dip with the horizon forms an angle of about forty-five degrees. The greatest depth that any shaft has been sunk in these mines to this period is 175 feet (the Charlotte mine); another has gone down 163 feet (the Capps mine).

In the early workings of these mines, the gold was found in small pieces from the size of a pennyweight down to particles of extreme minuteness.

In 1803, at Reid’s mine, a negro found one lump that weighed twenty-eight pounds avoirdupois. This mass was worth $8,000. Hitherto, the largest piece of gold in one mass, found in Europe, says Jameson, in his Mineralogy (III. 10), only weighed twenty-two ounces. This was found at the mines of Micklow, in Ireland. These specimens of the mineral wealth of our State are of great beauty.

Professor Olmsted states that Mr. Reid found at his mine a mass of white flint (quartz) having a projecting point of gold of the size of a pin’s head. On breaking it open, a brilliant display of green and yellow colors was presented, which was described as being exceedingly beautiful. The gold weighed twelve pennyweights.

It is to be regretted that there was not some depository established at that time; and that these earlier and splendid specimens of the mineral wealth of the county were carried abroad to decorate the museums and cabinets of other nations. The liberality of our Government now affords, at the mother-mint, in Philadelphia, a proper deposite for them; and patriotism, as well as interest, will dictate to those in this region, who may hereafter find these specimens, not to destroy them. I have met with one mass weighing, in the ore, about seventy-five ounces, which yielded nearly $1,000 to the owner, Mr. Belk, of Lancaster, South Carolina. Specimens of this character would always produce more to the owner than their intrinsic value as gold. Before leaving this point, however, it is proper to say, that the mines in this region are not extensively worked, nor yet fully developed. Nearly all those who have been engaged in mining for the last four years are the farmers or owners of the soil, who take opportune occasions when not engaged in their farms to work their mines. The large companies have either been dissolved or are dormant. So far as the shafts have gone down in the vein mines, experience furnishes no reason to doubt their durability or richness. The veins continue to be well defined, and many of them retain their first size; others become larger and richer. Mr. Rothe, a miner and mineralogist, from Saxony, in some notes on the gold mines of North Carolina, published in Silliman’s Journal, states that “veins of two feet in thickness, in other mining countries, have been followed 2,000 feet deep with little or no variation.” He states that the veins in these mines are “from two to four feet in thickness;” and, after a careful examination, he concludes that these ores will compare with any in Europe, and “richer than those of Brazil.”

The important and most difficult point is yet to be answered: What are the annual products of the mines?

It is not to be expected that perfect accuracy can be attained on this point, even by the most patient investigation, or laborious research. The actual amount coined at the mints of the United States is certain.

The amount coined at Philadelphia from North Carolina, up to 1838, was (see report of Director of the mint, Senate Doc. No. 98, 25th Congress, 3d session) $2,648,500 00
In 1838, at Charlotte 80,565 00
In 1839, at Charlotte 162,727 00

2,891,792 00

Taking an average of ten years, this would be about $300,000 per annum, coined at the mints of the United States, from the mines of North Carolina.

An article in the American Almanac for 1832 (a work of great practical use and accuracy), under the head of North Carolina, states that “the weekly product ot the mines was $100,000, or $5,000,000 annually; and that by far the larger portion of the bullion went to Europe, particularly to Paris, and that but a small portion was coined at the United States mint, Philadelphia.”

I did not reside in this section of North Carolina at that period, and have no data by which I am enabled to pronounce upon the correctness of this statement. There can be no doubt but by far the most extensive working of the mines was done from the year 1830 to 1834; and I am led to believe, from a careful examination of facts, that the coinage of the mint at Philadelphia afforded no very certain criterion of the products of the mines.

In venturing this statement, I would give some reasons that influenced my opinion.

1. Many of the mines, in their most productive state, belonged to foreigners, or were leased by them; the agents, or managers, were also foreigners; and the capital, also, was from abroad. The agents then often made prompt returns by remitting the bullion direct to Europe. This was the case with the Chevalier Rivifinoli.

2. On directing a diligent inquiry among the merchants in this place, and other purchasers of gold bullion, I find that many of them carried their bullion direct to New York, which was there assayed and sold; and from thence sent as remittances to Europe. One merchant (in whose intelligence I place much confidence, as also in his integrity) states that his purchases of gold, from 1828 to 1839, was nearly $300,000, as copied from his bullion accounts; and that three-fourths of it went to New York, and was there assayed and sold. Another states that his purchases, since 1828, have averaged $6,000 per annum; and that he carried nearly all to New York, and from thence sent to Europe. One reason why they carried their bullion to New York was, as they assert, that the assayers there gave an additional value above the mint, for the purposes of commerce. This, I presume, was the addition of the premium.

3. Another reason why I conclude that the records of the mint show no certain proof of the amount of bullion produced in this section is, that there is a private manufactory of coin in this region (Mr. Bechtler, of Rutherford) which has coined a large portion of the gold produced in the counties of Burke and Rutherford. He states that from January, 1831, to February, 1840, he coined $2,241,840 50, and fluxed (or melted in bars) 1,729,998 pennyweights (see note A in appendix). Much of this bullion may have been coined at Philadelphia; but as it answered the purposes of trade, and the community having confidence in the purity of the metal, much of it is carried by travellers, emigrants, traders, and others, into Kentucky, Tennessee, and elsewhere, that probably never found its way to the mint. From our experience, but little has been coined; at least we have not received $500 of it here. Much of it, it is supposed, is still extant among the farmers of the country, laid up with prudent foresight for future use, as well in this section of country as in Tennessee and Kentucky, as at the time it was certainly a safe currency. This, too, is a powerful argument in favor of the propriety of the establishment, by the Government, at an earlier period, in this region, of a mint; when necessity, the proper parent of invention, forced more than $3,000,000 of coin among the people, not bearing any official guaranty of its purity, or any device emblematic of a national character.

4. Another reason why I do not think the mint records show the full amount produced by the mines is, that much of the bullion is sold to manufacturers in bars or grains, which of course never reaches the mint. I leave it to others more conversant with such statistics, to say how much this is to be estimated.

In a report on a similar subject, to the Legislature of North Carolina, in 1830, I find the fact stated, that, in 1819, in France alone, there was used, solely for watches, $300,000. In a late extract from an English journal, it is stated that “£50,000 sterling is annually used in Birmingham for plating, and thereby for ever lost as bullion.” In a note to some remarks on the gold mines of North Carolina, by Mr. Rothe, already referred to, in Silliman’s Journal, it is stated that the last report of the United States mint, in 1826, shows that about $20,000 of North Carolina gold was coined at that institution in that year. “It is well known,” says he, “that but a small portion of the gold found at these mines goes to the mint. The silversmiths of every portion of the country, north and south, purchase it up to be wrought into jewelry and plate of all descriptions. It is preferred by them on many accounts, to gold coin; and consequently they give a better price than the mint.” Then, if I am correct that the records of the mint afford evidence of the total or annual product of these mines, what is their annual product?

I find in 1830, in a report to the Legislature of North Carolina, the fact stated, that the product of the mines in that year was $500,000. I should suppose that this is not far from the fact at the time, for the mint at Philadelphia coined from the bullion of North Carolina, in 1833, $475,000, and in 1832, $458,000. Colonel J. T. Avery, the agent of the Bank of the State, at Morganton, whose intelligence and experience give much weight to his opinion, in a letter to me, estimates the total products of Burke and Rutherford alone to be $6,000,000, while, adds he, “Mr. Forney and others who lived among the mines, estimated the gross amount at $12,000,000.” “The products of the niines,” he concludes, “have been gradually diminishing since 1835, when the high price of cotton drew off the greater portion of the force to the southwest.”

I therefore, in conclusion, would state it as my opinion, that the mines of this section of our country have yielded ten millions of dollars since their discovery (see note B in appendix); and that their annual product at this time is at least $400,000 (see note C in appendix). This is made, too, amid the pressure of the times, the neglected state of many of the best mines, with a small and inadequate force, by chiefly the farmers or owners of the soil, under great disadvantages, such as want of experience, machinery, &c. I offer this statement with much diffidence (as regards the total products of tha mines being $10,000,000, and their annual product at present being $400,000), for, in the first place, it is impossible to obtain perfect accuracy in the matter; and secondly, the time by which I am to make a report, as I premised in the commencement of this communication, is too short “to allow me to reply as satisfactorily to your letter as I could wish;” and finally, if these results should be erroneous, I have carefully given, in the appendix, the data whereby I arrived at them, and the errors, if any, can be easily detected.

The mining interest in this section is reviving, and the mines will be more extensively worked. A recent investigation by scientific men, aided by ample capital, has resulted in their making a heavy investment. Other companies, now dormant, will renew operations soon. This, added to the low price of cotton and of labor, and the increased value of gold, will, with, the favorable indications presented by the mines themselves, give additional impetus to mining operations. The Rudisil mine, in sight of the mint, is now yielding handsomely. In Burke, in the alluvial mines, “last week twenty-six hands raised 2,600 pennyweights;” and this mint, under all the disadvantages incident to a new establishment, coined in last year $162,767 50, all of native bullion. This last, though not least, inducement to mining is now in complete order and successful operation, and by affording an expeditious conversion of the bullion into national coin, without any expense, acts as an immediate and direct encouragement to mining operations.

I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

JNO. H. WHEELER, Superintendent.

Hon Levi Woodbury,
Secretary of the Treasury, Washington city.


APPENDIX.

Note A.As to Bechtler’s coinage. — In a letter dated 20th February, 1840, Mr. B. gives the following as the work of his establishment, extracted from his books:

From December, to December, coined. fluxed.
From January, 1831, to December, 1834 $109,732 50 395,804 dwts
From December, 1834, to December, 1835 695,896 00 711,583
From December, 1835, to August, 1836 471,322 50 397,410
From August, 1836, to May, 1838 770,329 50 201,141
From May, 1838, to February, 1840 194,560 00 24,060


  2,241,840 50   1,729,998


This, including a period of nine years, would give an average of $250,000 a year coined. If to the coinage is added the amount of bullion fluxed, or melted by him (1,730,000 pennyweights, at eighty cents per pennyweight, which is its average assay here, equal to $1,384,000), it would show that there passed through his hands alone, within this period, $3,625,840 of gold bullion, the products of the mines of that region, which would show an average of more than $400,000 annually.

Note B. — Data upon which the opinion is founded “that the total amount of gold bullion found in this section, from the discovery of the mines, amounts to $10,000,000:”

Coined at the United States mints, to 31st December, 1839 $3,000,000
Amount of bullion passed through Mr. Bechtler’s hands 3,625,000
