MESSAGE OP THK President of the United States, WITH THK ACCOMPANYING REPORT8 OF THK HEADS OF THE TREASURY, WAR AND NAVY BBPAmTBKBXrTS, relative to The Mode of Raising Funds for Carrying on the War with Mexieo. KBIIAOB Of tlie President of the United State*, In an ?Wfr ton Resolution of the Senate, of June :i, ISM, calling for Information relative to the mode of railing fund* for carrying on the war with Mexico. To the Senate of the United Statu : In answer to the resolution of the Senate of the 3d inst., I communicate herewith estimates prepared by the War and Navy Departments, of the probable expenses of con ducting the existing war with Mexico, during the remain der of the piesent and the whole of the next fiscal year. I communicate, also, a report of the Secretary of the Trea sury, based upon these estimates, containing recommen dations of measures for raising the additional means re 3Hired. It is probable that the actual expenses incurred uiing the period specified may fall considerably below tho estimates submitted, which are for a larger number of troops than have yet been called to the field. Aa a pre cautionary measure, however, against any possible defi ciency, the estimates have been made at the largest amount which any state of tho service may require. It uili be perceived front the report of the Secretary of the Treasury, that a considerable ]>ortion of the ?idition al amount required may be raised by a modification of the rate* of duty imposed by the existing tariff laws.? The higli duties at present levied on many articles to tally exclude them Irom importation, whilft the quantity and amount of others which are imported are greatly di minished. By reducing these duties to a revenue stan dard, it is not doubted tnnt a large amount of the articles on which they are imposed would be imported, and a corresponding amount of revenue be received at the treasury from this source. By imposing revenue duties on many articles now permitted to he imported free of duty, and by regulating the rates within the revenue standard upon otners, a large additional revenue will be collected Independently of the high considerations which induced me, in my annual mesKage, to lecommend a modification and reduction of the rates of duty imposed by the act of 1843 as being not only proper in reference to a state of peace, but just to all the great interests of the country, the necessity of such mollification and re duction as a war measure must now be manifest. The country requires additional revenue for the prosecution of the war. It may be obtained to a great extent, by re ducing the prohibitory and highly protective duties im posed by the existing laws to revenue rates ; by impo sing revenue duties on the free list ; and by modifying tho rates of duty on other articles. The modifications recommeftdcd by the Secretary of the Treasury in his annual report In December last, were adapted to a state of peace; and the additional duties now suggested by him, aie with a view strictly to raise reve nue as a war measure. At tho conclusion of the W8r the?e duties may and should be abolished, and reduced to lower rates. It is not apprehended that the existing war with Mexi ce will materially affect onr trade and commerce with the rest of the world. On the contrary, the reductions uroposed would increase that trado, and augment the re venue derived from it. When the country is in a state of war no contingency should be permitted to occur in which there would be a deficiency in the treasury, for the vigorous prosecu tion of the war; and to guard against such an event it i* recommendod that contingent authority be given to issue treasury notes, or to contract a loan for a limited amount reimbursable at an early dav. Should no occasion arise to exercise the Dower, still it may be important that the authority should exist should there be a necessity for it. It is not deemed necessary to resort to dircct taxes or , excises?the measures recommended being deemed preferable as a means of increasing the revenue. It is hoped that the war with Mexico, if vigorously prosecu ted, as is contemplated, may be of short duration. 1 stall be at all times ready to concludo an honorable peaco, whenever the Mexican government shall manifest a like disposition. The existing war has been rendered neces sary by the acts of Mexico; and whenever that power shall be ready to do us justice, we shall be prepared to sheathe the sword, and tender to her the olive branch of peace. JAMES K. POLK. Washington, June 16, 1846. Report of the Secretary of the Trruary. Trkasuit Dkpabtmkut, June 16, 1846. Sm 9wl have duly considered the resolution of the Senate of the 3d ol Jane, 1846, together with the esti mate* of the Secretary of the Navy of the 9th init., and of tho Secretary of War of the 13th init, submitted by you to thia department, and reapectfully report to you as follows: Is appears that the aggregate estimated expenditures of the War and Navy Departments for tlie fiscal years ter minating on the 30tli of June, 1840 and 1847, amount to $13,953,904 over and above the estimates made by those Department* in December last, and then submitted in my annual report to Congress. In that report it was suppo sed by this department, that upon the expenditures then estimated for a state ol peace, there would remain on the 1st ot July, 1847, a balance in the Treasury of $4,332, 44 1 07, Deducting this balance from the excess of ex penditures above estimated by the War and Navy De partments, there would result a deficiency of $19,tii0,463. It is believed, however, that this deficiency will, from augmented receipts, accrued ami accruing tor the fiscal vears 1346 and 1847, be diminished four millions, of dol lars. which would reduce the deficit on the 1st of July, 1847, $14,620,463. It is ascertained, by experience, that for the certain, prompt and convenient payment of the public creditors, at *11 times and places, throughout our extended terri tory, and the supply of the mint and branch mints, for coinage, a sum of <1 millions of dollars, especially during a state of war, must remain on hand in the Treasury, which would again raise the sum to be provided for be fore tho 30th of June, 1847, to $19,620,4C3. It is t>elieved, however, that a sum equal to $6,6.11,067 of additional revenue may be produced by the modifica tion of the tariff herein proposed?namely, to adopt, as a basis, the bill reducing the tariff reported by the Commit tee of Ways and Means to the ilouae of Representatives on the 14th of April last, together with the augmented and additional duties now proposed and enumerated in schedule A. This change of the bill reported by the committee, omitting the fourth section, would make an addition to the re venae to be produced by that bill, of $4,034,067. After a very careful examination of the addional da'a which it has been in my power to obtain since the month of February last, it is my conviction that the bill of the committee will produce a net revenue of at least $26, 000,000. I f to tnii be added the additional duties propos ed to be levied in schedule A, the bill of the committee with the modifications embraced in that schedule, would produce a net revenue of $30,034,067. This would make an addition of $6,AS4.0.Y7 to the revenue that would be produced under the act of 30th August, 1842. If, then, we deduct this $6,634,067, from tho deficit above estima ted, it would stiu leave a deficit of $14,086,406. If, ip addition to the modifications of the tariff above suggested, the warehousing system were adopted, as re commended in my annual report ol December last, it would make an addition to the annual revenue from cus toms of one million of dollars, which, deducted from the above deficit, would leave a deficiency still remaining of $13,0*6,406. It is true that the introduction of the warehousing sys tem might diminish the revenue during a portion of the first year succeeding its adoption; but that it would add one million of dollars per annum to the permanent annual revenue from customs is not donlited. It is believed also that the reduction and graduation of the price ol the public lands in favor of settlers and cuits vators, as recommended in your message of December last, would make an annual addition of half a million of dollars to the revenue derivable from the proceeds of the sales of the public lands, by bringing into market msny millions of acrea of the public domain which are whelly unsaleable at the present minimum price established by law. Deducting this sun ef half a million of dollars from the deficit last above mentioned, would leave still unpro vided for the sum of $12,686,406, which must be met by loans, treasury notes, direct axation, or excises. In addition to the strong objections which have been urged against direct taxes and excises, it would be illft cult to put in operation such a system in all the States and Territories, so as to realize the required amount in cash, before the 30th of June, IH47. A system of direct taxes and excises, it is believed, would not meet the sanction of the people, unless in the emergency of a war with some great maritime nation, exposing our com merce to great hazard, and greatly reducing the revenue from duties on imports. The only remaining means for supplying this deficit within the required period, is by loan* or treasury notes; and I would accordingly recommend, With a view to the most vigorous prosecuting of the existing war with Mexico, no as to nring it to a sueedy and honorable ter mination that a contingent authority should be vested in this department, with your sanction, to issue treasury notes, or effect a loan of a sum in the aggregate not ex ceeding the last above mentioned deficit of $12,686,406. I think it would be most advantageous to the govern ment, that a portion ol this money should be raided by treasury notes, and the remainder by loans, limiting the interest ia both cases, to ? rate not exceeding six per cent per annum, and forbidding the negotiation in either case below the par value. If the authority were limited se as to cover this deficit, and the power given to resort to loans, or treasury notes, or both, as the emergency I might require, lbs money might be raised at a much lower rate ef interest, than if the department were con- 1 fined either to loans alone, or to treasury notes. The ex perience of the government has demonstrated, that there are period* when loans are moat available, and that theie are occasions when treasury notes ' are mnch better adapted to meet the emergen cy; and Ike power to select both, or either, from time to time, would render (he negotiation more certain and probably save a very large amount of interest to the government. ]f the war should be speedily terminated, it ii possible that a resort to luani or treasury note* might not he required, or if so, for an inconsiderable amount. The mme jiowerthat ii now given by law to redeem the loan, even before ita maturity, whenever the fundi of the gevernment will permit, no aa to liquidate a$y public deut an ipeedily an possible, should be con tinued, aa also the authority for the reissue of the trea sury notes as heretofore provided by law, as well aa for their receipt in revenue pay men's The additional duties designated in schedule A, are recommended as a war measure, and to terminate with the restoration of peace, or as soon thereafter aa the state of the public finances will permit their diacon tinuance. 1 have the honor to be, sir, most respectfully, your obedient servant, R- J.

[The schedule A, referred to in the above letter, is made out in an intricate tabular form; and inconse quence it is not practicable for us to lay it before our readers this evening. We may do so at some future day.] He port of the Secretary of War. Wab DKrtlTMdT, ) Washington, June 13, IfcUtl.) Sir : I have the honor herewith to submit to you tho estimates which have been made at this department, to enable you to answer the resolution of the Senate, of the 3d instaiit, requesting to bo furnished with an estimate of the amount of money required during the present and next fiscal year for such a prosecution of the existing war with Mexico as will most likaly result in its speedy and honorable termination. These estimates are made upon the assumption that the regular army will soon be filled up to its maxi mum, which will amount to l&.AOO men, and that a volunteer force of 'iO,000 foot, and ?,000 mounted men is to be at once organized; received into service, and kept therein until -the end of the next fiscal year?to wit: to the 30th of Juno. I *47. The estimates are made for an army of over 40,000 oien, mostly operating in the field, in an enemy's country, deriving their supplies principally from the United States How long it will be before the regular army cun be filled up to the exteut authorized by law will depend up on success in recruiting. Its numbers as yet do not much exceed one half its maximum. It is hoped that in a few monthi the ranks will be nearly filled ; its average total number through the next fiscal year will not probably exceed 13,600. The number of volunteer* actually called for imme diate service, by virtue of your orders under the act of i 13th of.Vlay last, will amount to about 18,000, and whe ther a greater number will or will not be required for the eusuing campaign cannot now be determined. Should the number already called for be deemed sufficient for the successful prosecution of the war, the estimate being made on a basis exceeding that number by seven tho j saud, will he found proportionably too large. Should these views as to the extent of tho regular and volunte'er force be realised, the army will not exceed 30.0(H) men, and all or nearly all the estimates presented herewith might be reduced one fourth in amount, yet it is impossible to foresee the exigencies oi the service. It may require the full amount oi the force on which the estimates have been made, and even more ; and 1 have not therefore felt at liberty to make any reductions of the estimates presented by the several branches of this department. I take the liberty to direct your particular attention to the estimates of the quartermaster general. You perceive that they are large?very Targe?and 1 1 much exceed the expenditures which may be reqt They are made on tne supposition that our arm l>enetrate far into the interior of the enemy's con and that all supplies, and the munitions of war, wi cessarily be trunii>orted on long lines, and those far li being easily traversed. Should the enemy's count.i abound in forage, the ex]iense of transportation will be greatly reduced ; but the uncertainty as to the country to be invaded, and the still greater uncertainty as to its resources, do not warrant deductions to be made on the estimated items for supplies, and the transportation of them to the places where they may be needed. Should the navigation of the Rio Grande be found practicable for steamboats of light draught to Camargo, or above, much will be saved probably by the use of that river, yet con siderable sums must be expended in the purchase of boats, kc. It is further to be observed that no inconsiderable amount of the expenses which will fail on the quarter master's department, is in the nature of an outfit, and would not be required to be repeated should the war lie protracted beyond the next fiscal year. The estimates in the quartermaster's department are made without much regard to the chances favorable to diminished ex* penses. Provision had not been made (for the restricted appropriations in past years would not permit it) for a sudden augmentation of our force to four timea ita usual amount The necessity of making such a provision on the shortest notice will greatly increase the cost of it, and this falls mainly on the quartermaster's department It is hoped that the actual expenses of this branch of the service will fall some two or three millions short of the full estimates here presented, yet this is not so cer tain us to authorize the department to cut them down in that amount.

To those not accustomed to military operations in a country almost destitute of resources, this estimate may seem large; hut in a department where the expenditures depend so much upon the accidents and contingencies of service, estimates are necessarily in some measure hypo thetical I have considered it to be due to the impor tance of the subject to base the present estimate upon the resources of our own country alone, leaving out of view entirely any supposed resources to be derived from the enemy's country. In this view, the present estimate is believed to be as near an approximation to truth as such an estimate, under existing circumstances, is susceptible of being made.
