Greenback Redemption Fnnd.
Washington, Oct 3. Receipt of bank
notes at the treasury to-day for redemption
are only 100,000, the smallest amount ever
received in one day. Under the law of July
28th, requiring national banks to keep with
the treasury a sum of greenbacks equal to 5
per cent, of their circulation for redemption
of their notes, nearly $15,000,000 in green
backs will be locked up in the vaults of the
treasury for the redemption of such notes, .
but should the amount presented for redemp
tion continue to be small, and it is estimated
that it will decrease daily, there will be no
demand on the greenback redemption fund
and it must remain idle in the treasury.

dividends for six months ending Sept. 1,'
1878. For the .first six months of the year
1876, 238 national banks, with a capital of

of $44,000,000, paid no dividends. Re
