Every trifling fluctuationEvery trifling fluctuation in the value of either metal was immediately accepted by these theorists, without examination or analysis, as proof positive of the realization of their predictions; whereas, when closely analyzed, they all prove that the theory they advanced is completely erroneous, f The following, in addition tory burch shoes to long, imposing arrays of figures It became a prevalent belief, that a marked divergence from the previous scale of relative tory burch sale values existing between gold and silver would rapidly manifest itself, and that this divergence would become so decided that sound policy would lead to the substitution of silver for gold as a standard metal in metallic circulations. It was in pursuance of this opinion that Holland demonetized its gold coins," (Tooke, History of Prices, vol. vi, p. .)f The result of the inquiries instituted seems to justify a positive opinionof the past, present, and future production, existence, and consumption of the two metals, were the facts generally appealed to, to sustain their theories :st.

The disappearance of the premium on gold after the influx of gold from the Californian and Aus. tralian mines.d.

The st, d, and th of these facts have already been fully explained, and certainly indicate no alteration in thethat the fluctuating increase of two or three per cent, in the price of silver, as compared with gold, which has prevailed, at various periods since , admits of being fully explained by circumstances not connected with a full in the value of gold."
