Most of this time will be taken in counting the vast stores of silver. It is estimated that the paper money can be counted in about two weeks, and that it will take nearly two monchs and a half to count the siirser. Mr. Morgan's bcndsmen will not be relieved until the count is concluded and all the moceys and bonds in his charge have been fully accounted for. Though Mr. Morgan received from his predecessor about $700.000,000. he will deliver to Mr. Roberts about $60,000.000 more than that sum.
