Tbe Secretary regrets, notwithstanding tbe large redaction of tbe nat>on il debt, and the faiistactorv condition. in other respects, of the National Treasury, that little progress ban t**a made siece bis last report toward specie pajm>-oThe views presented by him In that repor;. although endorsed in the House of Rept**eniateves by a nearly unamraoa* vote, were ' not sustained by corresponding legislation. ] 1 is*t? ad of being authorized Jo redne? the paper i trfettlWNM of the country, according to his ( re< oromei*lations, tbe auuuntof I'mied State* in t.? which be wa> permrted to retire was i l>nili?d toglO-.n'.w 0 tor the six months endm?g october 1'iih, and to #4,oco,(* n per month j vr?alter. in'he meantime, :he reduction ?t ibeee notes Utd Of the notes ol the State bn.ukj 1 bas b?? d nearly balanced by :b? increase of 'he i ?

Having been thus preveu ed from taking the rrst im pcriant step toward a re*urn to specie pay roe lift, .be Secretaxy has mainly directed b s" attention to measures. looking to an increase rf efficiency in tbe collection of the revenues, to tbe conversion of intercut bearing notes into hve-tweo'y bonds, and to a reduction o tbe public debt. Tbe Secretary ha* also deemed it to ne bis dnty to use snch means, within his control, as were, in bis judgment, best calculated to keep tbe bn&iAesi* of the conntry as steady a? potable, while conducted on the uncertain ba>is of irredeemable currency. To accomplish has tbonzht it necessary to hold a handsome reserve of cotn in the Treasury. lie has regarded a st< ady market as of more importance to be people, than be saving ot a few millions of dollars in tbe tvav of .nterest; at d observation and experience have assured h in tbat, in order to seenre .hi- steadiness in any considerable liegree, while business is conducted on a paper bads there most bft p >wer in the Treasury to prevent sncceealnl combfniticdf to brirg sbout successful fluctuations for purely spevuia'ive purposes He has also nen clear in bis con victions that specie pay. tti lare not to be restored by an accumulation ot coin in the Treasury, to he paid ont at a future day in the redemption of Government ?'bligation*: bnt rather bv quickened industry, increased production,and lower prices, which can alone make tbe United States wbat they ought to be?a creditor and not a deb'or nation These views explain tbe coarse that has bern pursued with tbe gold wbi b. during his administration ot the Department has come info tne Treasury, lie has permitted it to ac? tiirir.ultte wten the nse of the sale of it was not nece??ary for paying Government obligators, or to prevnt commercial panics, or successful combinations against tbe national credit aid be has sold whenever sales were necessary to supply tbe Treasurv with eurreniy. tc wsrd off financial crises, ot to save tb?- par-er rirrnviticn ot tbe conntry, as far as pract^aole. trota unnecessary :?.nd damaging depreciation. It may be hardly necessary tor the Secretary ' to remark that bis opinions have undergone no f barge in regard to the imffortance of a resto- J ration of the specie standard, or 1means | necrss&ry to ellect it.
