* N. B. The value is not always given exactly to a fraction, though near enough for the purpose of the tourist ;-aid it is the par va'ue, exclusive of exchange. Thus the pound sterling, for instance, ai the par of exchange, is worth $1 80 10 $4 871. The best hard money for the tourist, is the English Sovereign, French Napole in, and five franc pieces. These will pass for their full value in any part of the Continent; but the coins of other States had better be disposed of where they belong.
