(Encyclopedia Brittanica.) The variations in the rate of discount charged by the bank have been very much more numerous and violent since 1844 (when the bank was reorganized) than they were before, and in 1847, 1857, 1866, etc., it has been judged necessary to authorize the suspension of tho act.

It is not denied that the mere suspension of the act (of 1844) has more than once operated as a charm to allay fears of panic, etc.
