"" "S"' O received considerat ion. In 1831 those duties were repealed, except as to the vessels of those countries that impose duties on good* and tonnage, discriminating between their own vessels and ours. In respect to those nations, counter discriminating duties on our part still remain.? They vary in amount, but their annual produco on an average of the last twelve years, is about sixty thousand dollars, although for the last year it was less than thirty thousand dollars. It is respectfully submitted whether it would not be expedient to direct that this duty. as collected, should be npplied to the relief of sick and disabled seamen, in aid of the hospital fund i Although this amount would not furnish an adequate provision for this meritorious class of citizens ; yet, in connexion with other provisions hereinafter suggested, it would, to a great extent, relievo Congress from the appropriations ordinarily made to supply tho deficiency in that fuud. The advantaged such an arrangement would be to avoid the distressing contingency oif an inability to meet the coses of suffering that occur after the fund is exhausted and previous to an appropriation. Considering the disadvantages under whicli our n?rigation now suffers from various causes, the undersigned is not disposed to recommend the restoration of the general tonnage duty. But it is deemed worthy of consideration whether tho vessels enjoying the benefits of our very extensive light-house establishment ought not in justice to contribute to iU maintenance ? The light duty was repealed at the samr time with the general tonnage duty, and it is believed for the same reason, the abundance of revenue then existing That reason has ceased to exist. Our revenue is not ade3uate to the ordinary expenses of the (iovernment. A uty of six cents per'tun upon all vessels engaged in tin foreign trade, to be paid upon each entry into our ports, except that not more than one duty shall be required foi any one mouth, and u like duty annually upon vessels en paged in the coasting trade and fisheries, would product on the present tonnage about two hundred and thirty thou sand dollars, less tliun one-hnll of the average annual ex nense of the light-houses. The annual duty would be s< light ns scarcely to be felt, and if other suggestions con talned in this report, by which the interests of our nnvi gationinaybe promoted, should receive favorable consid .1,-,. ..ill K.. <1,.,.. r,,, ?>.. amount of duty now pro|>oscd. It is worthy of consideration whether the riivcnu* might not lio improved and the navigation of the countrj augmented by the imposition of u transit duty ujion im ported merchandize on its passage* from one of our j>ort! to the dominions of a foreign State immediately adjoining the United States. By the existing Inw no drawhact whatever i* allowed in ;;nch cases, except to fore.igr places to tiie southward or westward of Louisiana. Tin facility afforded by the improvements of our interior com munications and by'the application of steam for the rapk and safe transmission ol goods from our own seaports tc the British dominions, together with tne early closing u the ports of the latter by ice, and the late periods a which they open, would ordinarily induce a preference ti that mode of supply, c.nd at particular seasons would bt so advantageous to our own citizens as to secure a verj large portion of thi* carrying trade, besides givingaddi tional employment to our ships. The policy which ha! in effect prohibited this trade, doubtless arose from the ap prehension that it might afford opportunities for the illi cit re-introduction into this country of the goods thus ex ported. It was adopted at the time when the wholi amount of duties collected on merchandize, with a deduc tion of one per cent, was refunded on its re-exportation. It is submitted whether the introduction of the just am judicious principle of retaining a much larger jiercentagi of the amount ol drawback and the imposition of duties it the colonial ports, have not changed to a great extent thi ground of this policy. It is not perceived what motive o interest can exist to smuggle into this country good which have paid this transit charge and these duties, ra tlier than the merchandize which under existing law may be re-exported to Halifax, and carried from tueuci into the same dominions. Whatever apprehensions maj exist on this point, it is not doubted that they may be re moved by adequate guards. Among these may'ho sug gested the designation of the ports from which only thi re-exportation might be permitted, and the production o official evidence that the same goods had been received entered, and paid duties in the adjacent British dominion! to which they went re-exported. It cannot be doublet that such a measure would tend greatly to the increase o our tonnage, and to restore to our own ships a trade ol which our policy has, to a great extent, deprived them. In the last annual report from this Department the at tention of Congress was invited to the warehouse system and various communications from custom-house ofticeri and intelligent merchants were submitted. It is certainlj worthy of inquiry whether the time during which import ed goods are permitted to remain in the charge of custon house officers, may not be extended so as to relieve thi importers from the advance of the duties which they ari now obliged to make before the amount is realized bj sales of the goods. The frequency of the communication between our shores and those of Great Britain, and theii suqirising regularity, have doubtless mitigated the bur den of these advances upon our own citizens, as tli goods to bo imported from that country ore in effect ware housed there, and are shipped according to the suppose demands ?f the market. Lut it maylw well to inquir whether this mitigation ia not, in fact, destructive of the portion of the importing business of our own citizens upo which it operates, by transferring it to those ui>on whor the burden falls lightly, if at all. Possessing large cap, tain, anil able to command money at much lower rates ?j interest than our own citizens, British merchants cai better afford to keep large stocks on hand, or to advanc the duties upon such as they send to us. The same ad vantages in their favor exist also in respoct to merchandis imported from the continent and other ports ofthe worlil In the absence of regular ami speedy communications, th stocks of this description must be ordinarily large, an the advance of duties upon them must absorb capital, an causc a very serious inroad upou the profits of businesi It is represented that the importing trade is now chiefly i: the hands of the agents of foreign house*. Independen of other considerations which will suggest themselvel the consequences to our navigation, to the building c ships, and to the employment of our own seamen, of gh ing to subjects of other countries the selection of th means of conducting commerce with us, may be very s? rious. And it will not escape intelligent legislators t inquire how far it is intrinsically just to demand of on class of our citizens the advance to the Oov ernment of pnrtion of their capital, while it is not required from an, other cla*s. The imjiorters are, in tact, the collec tors of the duties for the government, and it woul seem that very cogent reasons of public policy should exit to compel them to pay over befocr they had collectet The general opinion to be derived from the corresjior dcnce communicated to ( ongress in the report befor mentioned is, that the revenue from customs would b augmented after the lirst year by the warehouse sj steir in consequence of the greater facility that would be give to importations, and of a fair and increased competitioi and consequently a probable reduction in priccs ; tin fluctuations in me amount 01 imports wouia or* preveniec and that our commercial marine would be increased b; rendering this country the entrepot for merchandise des lined to other markets. In these views I am inclined t repose great confidence. The better opinion would seer to be, however, that the system of warehousing should b restricted to prominent articles of considerable bulk, an paying hijjh specific duties, such as w ines, liquors, sugai molasses, iron, &c. Doubtless, the effect would be t postpone the collection of that portion of the duties whic would accrue on the warehoused articles. This tempo rs ry effect mutt be mel whenever the system shall be adop ed, and it may as well be encountered now as at any othe time. If the consequence would be, ns anticipated, a augmentation of the revenue, it could not well happen to soon. The temporary deficit which might lie createi could bo provided for by au extension ol thu authority t borrow. m The loan of seven milions, which hns been previous! montlcmed, WM effected in pursuance UJ the net Ol .Martad, 1943. By that act two modes or providing for tli amount of Treasury notes then outstanding were autho i?ed ?OHO, by a re-issue of notes ; the other by a loan on stock lor not more than ten years. The notes outstam ing at the passage of the act amounted to $11,056,3^7 4.' of which more than eight millions fell due before the It of July, l^, and the residue in the ensuing months. Th hazard of a demand for money being created by any ?ui den revulsion, which might be produced by continger cie* in other countries, or by causes over which we n?i no control, seemed to require that an amount eoual t two-thirds of our annual revenue should not be lei In a condition to be thrown upon the Treasury, am thus absorb the means of carry ing on the Government ?Nothing appeared t? justify the belief that there woul tie sneh an extraordinary increase in our revenue fo years to come a? would be necessary to meet such a di maud. It was therefore deemed advisable to put beyon the reach of accident such a portion of this large oul standing debt as would relieve the Department from an apprehension of inconvenience or (lunger from the resi due. The great plenty of money, which might be tempt rary, also invited to such a course, as at nil events ?avin a considerable amount of interest. The st.ite of thing actually existing as contemplated by the third section o the act referred to, a lonn was accordingly made under th direction of the President of the United States of seve millions of dollars, upon a ten years' stock, bearing an Cr terest of five per cent per annum, pavable 1 emi-annuall) at the rate of one hundred and one dollars rind one cent for every hundred dollars of stock, for neurly the whole a small portion having been taken on terms still more fn
vorable. The persons to whom aud the terms on whic] the stock was awarded, and the names and proposal* c those whose otters were not accepted, are given in a state mtnt (marked E) accompanying this report. By the funds thus provided Treasury notes bearing si iter cent interest to the amount of seven millions nav neen rennemeii rncn1 men rrmmnea 01 inr nuisianainj notes $4,6.H,887 4.1. Tk?? notes also bore an interest d six percent, which was considerably above the val'ie tj money. It seemed a verv obvious duty to exercise th authority given by the first section of the act of 1HI9?a Issuing otlier notes, in such form anil on sneh terms a would promote the convenience of tli? Treasury ani avoid the dangers and expense of remitting coin to th< public agent! iordisbursement, and at the same time sav to the country the great' s* rtonnt of interest. The cer tnin prospect of the oondi; mi ? Treasury, which ha been exhibited in this rep?r-? monishnd t;> this course independent of all other consideration*. NotwIthftnnJini nil interest had cea*<vl upon more than two mll'i.in* of thi outstanding Treasury no! in consequence 01 the notici given of a readiness* to redeem the whole amount, vet i was perceived that they were not iiresente-1 for redemp tion, nut were retained by the people for the purpose o 'remittance in the transaction of their business. This far indicated that the whole amount could probably be re-is?u ed, as the outstanding notes should be redeemed, in other of alow denomination, without any, or at a nominal inte rest: and that they would be received with avidity by th< public creditors, if made convertible into coin on de mand. )RK I ORNING, DECEMBER 13, In this slate of thing*, ani for these reasons, it was determined, with the sanction of the President, to issue j notes of the denomination of fifty dollars, with interest at th & rate of one mill per annum ujiou one hundred dollars, and to exercise the authority given by the eighth section ol the act of livi7 by purchasing these notes at par, whenever presented lor that purpose, at the depositories of the Treasury in the city of New Vork, where two-thirds of I our revenne and means are collected and deposited, and to give notice of such determination by an endorsement upon j the notes. It was doubted whether the bonds required by law to be given by collectors, or any other officers, would I extond to a responsibility tor funds that might be placed in ! their hands to mak>! such purchases , and lieace it was deemed impracticable to w mploy them for that purpose, if : it had otherwise been considered expedient. The notes are made pay able in oue year, raUier in conformity to the construction heretofore "given to the act of 1K37 than from a conviction ol its being required by that act. The object of the second section seems to be to prevent them from running or bearing intereat longer than a > year. It is silent respecting any shorter )>eriod, apparently with the view of leaving"some discretion, i he . notice that tnev will be purchased is endorsed on them, distinct from the body of the notes, so that, if any extraordinary emergency should occur to produce any ditlieulty in their purchase, or for any other reason it should be deemed expedient, the endorsement may be omitted, and the notes permitted to circulate without interest, or | they may be altered to specify a rate. They are not only receiv ahlo for all public dues," but may be exchanged for specie at par, at the custom-houses and land offices, to the , amount of one half the coin they may respectively have , unhand. Less than two hundred and seventy thousand dollars of the new notes have been issued. The effort had been made by a former Secretary to substitute notes with nominal rates of interest, and also notes with the low rate of two per rent, but it had not suej ceedrd in consequence of their not being convertible into coin on demand. Kor, as the prasent value of a post note j, is diminished in exact pro|iortion to the time it has to run before maturity, a discount o|>on it can only be prevented by allowing interest equivalent to that time. The question of convertibility, therefore, was in truth a question whether interest should or should not be saved, as the t permitting the notes to be at a discount was not to be tolerated. [ No apprehension was or is entertained of the perfect nhilitvol the Department to nurehaac all that may lie pre sented tor tho purpose. There in ami always must lie u surplus in the Treasury beyound the immediate culls upon , it. This, with a revenue more than three times the r amount of the uotes constantly accruing, would be adequate,as its place could ulwuj s be supplied with other notes ( \\ith or without interest, as circumstances required, with . which a portion of the public expenditure! eould be modi;. [ In the possible event of a large accumulation, Treasury | notes tearing.'inch interest as would ensure loans, not ex, reeding tho prescribed rute, or a resort to the authority to issue a stock, would either of them be sufficient to provide I the necessary funds to meet such accumulation. , The exigencies of tho Treasury demanded that the eff fort should be made tu relieve it from such a weight of int terest, especially as it would not preclude a return to the , system which invites banks to hoard Treasury notes, by , allowing them an interest, while they liorrow of the community without interest to the extent oi their circulation. , The authority given by the < (institution to 'borrow money on the credit of ihe United States," in its terms . comprehends every form of loan w hich Congress may . think proper to prescribe ; and it is not easy to percieve , how this express and unqualified grant of power can be limited or curtailed. Certain it is, that the most distinguished among those who contend for a strict construction ot j the Constitution have given their sanction to the existence , of this power in the form of bills of credit or Treasury I no,,,sj. Well founded objections exist to borrowing without an f urgent necessity, in the form either of permanent loans, j, or those of a temporary character. That necessity must . also influence the terms and conditions of either mode ^ The former, by putting oil'tin- day of payment to "a more 8 convenient season," removes the' most effectual check to f prodigality, and offer; a temptation of ditticult resistance. It has accordingly proved thcibane of all governments. Tho policy of the treasury note system seems to have . been devised to guard against this evil, by bringing the C day of payment close upon that of expenditure, and it would Neem that the more immediate the liability to pay, j the more would that policy be promoted. A [tostjionement j even for a year invites to profusion, ami no chock can be f so effectual as instant responsibility. Kverv loan thus made directly from the people, is in lact. made, not in consideration oitbe interest agreed to be paid by the government, but literally and solely upon "the credit of the t nitod States." j If alter such notes have answered the purpose of Go. vernment in promoting convenience, security, and economy in the public disbursements, they should, in conse^ <|Uence of their uniform value, be kept in circulation to 5 any considerable extent by our fellow-citizens for their ' own convenience in maintaining internal trade anil keeping down the fluctuations of exchange between different B parts of the countiy, arising from a disordered currency, r it is not perceived now such a result affords ground for objection to a sjstcm constitutional in itself, and adopted j, for legitimate and constitutional objects. It is submitted _ that the government is responsible only for the use which it makes of the power to incur a debt, anil not for the use e or abuse by the people of the evidences of that debt which it may issue. Their application by the community to the n pur|>ose mentioned, is a proof that they are wanted for that purpose, and that "the credit of the United Slates'' i lias taken the place of local, chartered, or State credit.? Those who object to such a consequence in the present |t state of our finances, which require a loan in some form, e must, however, choose between the evils of that result, if l_ tlioy are evils, and the perils of a permanent national debt, " which, must either be created directly, or must follow at I no remote period, anil take up securities which m.iy be ^ issued in the form of a protracted promise to puy. For in ^ this, as in other cases, we are not allowed the use of (l means entirely free from objection, but are compelled to , select between different modes that w hich is the least obq jectionablc. |( At all events, the small amount of convertible Treasury , notes that may be issued under existing laws (less than one-third of the annuul receipts, and less than one-fourth of the annual public expenditures) cannot create any very dangerous "paper currency." And it is supposed that the objections referred to are not so much to the issue of such an amount as a temporary expedient, but are r founded rather ujion an apprehension that these notes will ill"; ?o useiui 10 mr itovernmem unci mi iinu:iii;iu iu im: people that their issue may hereafter lie carried to excess. It is a fair question w hether the danger of excess in this (j mode of borrowing money is equal to that arising from ^ loans upon deferred times of pay'ment ? While the wisI dom ami firmness ol Congress ought nut to be distrusted ' in either case,yet it is worthy of observation that the mode ) which requires immediate liability to pay, fumivhes a guard in itself against abuse by the in&tant and infallible ! check which it furnishes upon issues beyond the means of ' converting into coin. ( A brief synopsis of the foregoing statements and suggaeUwu in relation to the deticienc v of means to meet the I ordinary expenses of Government during the current and ' the next fiscal year mnv he useful. By extending the. loan which becomes due 1st January, 1945, its amount ^ ($/i.S7'.J,976 H8) may be provided for. n By raising of light-money, by a duty on articles now free, particularly tea and cotfee, und by the other means j suggested in this report, an addition may be mnde to the revenue of between four and five millions of dollars. Ks^ timating this at four millions five hundred thousand dol^ lars, there will be left to be provided for four millions five , hundred thousand dollars, and the outstanding Treasury j* notes, amounting to a little more than four millions six ,r" hundred thousand dollars. Tliese two items, amounting n in the whole to nine millions one hundred thousand dol0 larn, might be supplied by a continuation of the act of 1 March 3, IB43. (providing for the reissue of Treasury notes, ' with a contingent authority to fund into a stock.) which is limited to the first of July, IH44, and by extending it so is to include the anticipated deficiency of lour millions t live hundred thousand dollars, or such portion of it a* it 1(1 nay be found expedient to meet in this manner. B> this r an increase of the permanent public debt may lie avoided. . and any reduction of'expenditures or increase of revenue j. that may take place, will enable the Department to rei, ',oem a portion of this floating debt. For this reason il it f?r n.?I?th?r 't ta adviMble that this portion of our debt should be kept in such a condition that it may be redeem I ed at pleasure. Hhould the discretion as to the rate of in teres! on the Treasury notes to bo issued, be abrogated or j should the authority to purchate them on presentation be 0 withheld, which would be equivalent to a direction that interest shall be paid at all events, then it will bnneceiisar) ry to add to the estimated deficiency for the service of the next fiscal year at least four hundred and fifty thousand dollars. There are some subjects to which it seems a duty to intl.? (,f ( AniTM?t? lu forn rlnviitir tlii? rmmrl j To prevent illegal importations on our southwestern , frontier, as well as to afford the proper facilities to tra.lt.-rs who may wish to bring merchandize in that direction, it ' wonIrl f?e advisablethat n pott ot entry should be ettah^ lished in that quarter. The town of Independence, in _ Missouri, has been suggested a* a good position. F Bv the existing law, an appeal to the Supreme Court . cannot hi' madctrom the decision of a Circuit Court in cases involving the amount of duty that may be levied on e im|iorted merchandise, because the amount in emit rover" - y in tin-particular case never iMMdi tlM pMMIHi i Iim !* it. The courtesy of the judges sometimes induces them to disagree in form, in order to obtain the opinion of the || Supreme Court. But it freqnentlv happens that only one '* judge holds the court, and it would seem that the government ought not to lie indebted to the courtesy of any orti, cer for the opportunity of correcting what may In- an er' roneous construction of its revenue Taw*. The principle which prescribes a limitation of tliev alue of the subject in controversy in civil suits to entitle n part} * to an appeal, is believed not to lie applicable to questions y of revenue, w hen the decision of a particular case may | and often toes involve hundreds of thousands of dollars; . and it is submitted that in all such eases the I'nited HUtes should have the right of appeal, of course, but thot the ? costs consi-quent upon such a proceeding should not in any evout lie charged upon the opposite party. 1 A practice has prevailed of allowing the compensation ut clerks employed >:i the custom houses to lie p im out ol I hi' re\ I'll nr. in ra?r? wrirrr inr ? era mil ncrmi'ii biiiv <|uate to nlitH'n the ncr >nrv number.

It afford* great pleasure to state there hu* been no delinquency or default on the part of collectors of the customs, tne receiver* of public moneys, or any other ofltcer or agent, charged with the receipt or deposite of the public funds. The sums which collectors and receivers aro permitted to retaiu in their hands lmve been limited to the very lowest amount the public service would allow, while they have been required to doposite the suiplus immediately in the institutions designated for that purpose.
