Paris Correspondence.

The Banque Enquete. (Report of M. de Lavenay, Commissioner General in the Bank inquiry, viz. who conducted the investigation)

Decides (der Report) für Monopol der Bank o. France, no essential changes in its organisation to be introduced. 75 oral depositions heard und written depositions sent in by 65 French, and 10 Foreign Chambers of Commerce; also by 16 French, and 20 foreign merchants, bankers, or economists. Majority of witnesses established that there was a monetary crisis in 1863 and 1864, a fact disputed by some authorities, and that it was caused by the export of specie to buy cotton and silk, and by the large investments in industrial enterprises and foreign loans. Notes ought to be equal to metallic money. How was that condition to be fulfilled? By not exceeding the wants of the currency. How ascertaining the true limit thereof? By rendering the notes constantly convertible, in which case, if too many were sent out, they would be presented for payment.

Relative to the organisation of the B. o. France, the majority of the witnesses were of opinion that the elastic power it possessed of issuing notes (meaning thereby the absence of any restrictions beyond what prudence should demand,) was much preferable to the inflexible limit imposed upon the Bank of England.
