Washisctox, February 15, 1843.
Ta ihe Houtt of Rcireieiitafivi!):
, . i
I herewith transmit lo the House of
Representatives a report made to iuc ou
the 9th instant by the Secretary of the
Treasury, on the subject of the prescut
and prospective condition of the finances.
You will perceive from it that even if
the receipts from the various sources ol
revenue for the current year shall prove
not to have been overrated, and the cx-
penditures be restrained within the esti
mates, the Treasury will be exhausted
before the close of the year; and that this
will be the case, although authority
should be given to the proper Depart
ment to reissue Treasury notes. But the
state of facts existing at the present mo
vent cannot fail to awake a doubt wheth
er the amount of the revenue lor the res
pective quarters of the year will come up
to the estimates, nor is it entirely certain
that the expenditures which will be au
thorized by Congre-s may not exceed the
aggregate sum which ha hitherto been
assumed as the basis of the Treasury cal
culations. Of all the duties of the Government,
-none is more sacred and imperative than
that of making adequate and ample pro-
vision for fultiing with punctuality its
pecuniary engagements and maintaining
. the public credit inviolate. Any failure
in this respect, not produced by unfore
seen causes, could onli b regorded by
- our common constituents as a serious
neglect the public interests. I feel it,
therefore, to be an indispensable obliga
tion, while so much of the session yet re
mains unexpired as to enable Congress
to give to the subject the consideration
which its great importance demands, most
earnestly to call its attention lo the pro
priety of making further provision for
the public service of the year.
The proper objects of taxation are pe
culiarly within the discretion of the Leg
islature, while it is the dutv of the Exe
cutive to keep Congress duly advised of
the State of the 1 reasury, ana toaamon
!ish it of any danger which there may be
.ground to apprehend of a failure in the
means of meeting the expenditures au
thorized by law.
I mirrlit nut therefore to dissemble mv
.fears that there will be a serious falling off
. in the estimated proceeds ootn oi me cus--tomsand
the public lands. I regard the
".evil Tdisappointmftit in these respects
.asaltogether too great to be risked, if by
any possibility it may be entirely obviat
j.ed. . . . , .. "i ,
While I nra far fro:s objecting, under
'present errca instances, to the recommen
dation of the Secretary, that authority be
granted him to reissue Treasury notes as
.they shall be redeemed, and to other sug
' irpstinnc ivhirh he has made on this sub
ject, yet it appears to me to be worthy of
.grave consideration wnemer more per
manent and certain supplies ought not to
be provided. The issue of one note in re
demption of another is not the payment
of a debt, which mint bewmadc in the end
by some form of public taxation.
." I cannot forbare to add, that, in a coun
lry 60 full of resources, of such abundant
means, if they be but judiciously called
out, the revenues of the Government, its
.credit, and its ability lo fulfill all its obli
gations, ouglit not to be made dependant
on temporary expedients, or on calcula
tions of on uncertain character. The pub
he faith in this, as in all things else ought
to be placed beyond question and be
c; The necessity of further and full pro
vision for supplying the wants of the
Treasury will be the more urgent if Con
gress, at dus present session, should a
dopt no plan for facilitating the financial
operations of the ' Government and im
proving the currency or the country,
the aid of a wise and efficient measure
f that kind, not only would the internal
husinessand prosperity of the country
be revived and invigorated, but impor
tant additions to the amount of revenue
arising from importations might also be
confidently expected. Not only does the
present condition of things in relation to
the currency and commercial exchanges
produce severe and distressing embar
rassments in the business and persuits
t individuals, but its obvious tendency
J create also a necessity for the impo
;Hion of new burdens of taxation, in or
4r to secure the government and the
.fcwntry against discredit, form the fail
,ttre of means to fulfill the public engage

2- : Pennant to your direction, 1 1
. the honor to fubmit my views of the
prospective condition of this Depart
ment lor the current year:
1 he ballance in the Trea
sury on the 1st of Janu-'
ary Iast,appears, as well
as can be ascertained at
this time to have been $2,840,044 72
no estimated receipts du
ring year 1843, are as
Customs, $13,000,000 00 '
ous sources, 100,000 00
Loan &. Trea
sury notes, 4,883,58 36
Aggregate of means, $23,323,400 08
The estimates of expendi
ture during the year is
Civil & mis-
callaneous, 4,445,122 00
vices, &c, 9.286,428 00
vice, 7,881,223 00
loan & trea
sury notes, 1 ,320,000 00
Estimated balance on the 1st
January, 1844, $390,62708
It will be seen that this estimate makes
no provision for the amounts which may
be required to meet the appropriations
for private billt, or other objects beyond
the efficial estimates, nor for the redemp
tion of Treasury notes, of which there
are $11,068,977 69 outstanding and re
deemable during the vear 1843. Of these,
the whole except $4",402,390 56 carry
interest after maturity, and will probably
be presented for redemption. But the
sum of $2,402,390 56, on which the in
terest ceases after the year from the date
of issue, will require to be provided for,
and will not only absorb the ballance of
$390,627 08, but will need a further
supply of upwards ot two millions to
maintain the public credit. I have pro
posed to the Finance Committees of Con
gress to place these notes on the same
footing in regard to interest as the other
isiues, and to authorize the Department
to reissue such Treasury notes as may
be redeemed previous to July, 1844.
Should this proposition be adopted by
Congress, the estimated ballance of $390,
627 08 will remain unaffected, except by
such appropriations as may be made be
yond the estimates.
.Believing it necessary tliat some furth
er provision should be made by Con
gress for the purpose of ensuring au a
inouul of receipts that will enable the
Treasury to meet punctually all demands
that are likely to be made upon it, 1 have
this day addressed a communication to the
chairman of the Committee of Ways and
Means, recommending duties upon tea
and coffee, together with several other
articles which appeared to be proper
subject oflaxation.jillowever desirable
it may be to avoid this resort, - it was
thought to be imperatively called tor by
the condition of the finances and wthe
state of the public credit."
I have the honor to be, with great re
spect, your obedient servant,
Secretary of the Treasury.

Important from Yucatan.
503 Mxicans killed in Battle.
By the schooner Two Sons, Capt.
Bivylnn, which arrived yesterday,
31 days from Sisal, Yucatan, we have
been lurnished with lull files uf Yu
cat.iu pupers to the lOtli inst., and
verbal intelligence to the 14th inst.
The Two .Sons was the schooner
bearing despatches from Commodore
Moor, reported to have been captur
ed by the Mexican steamer Montezu
ma.. This vessel. was fired upon by
the Montezuma and boarded by the
olficer of that crall,but no attempt
was made to search the schooner.
The Mexican officers drank a glass
ol wine with the officers of the Two
Sons, and left them.
The Montezuma and Regenerador
steamers with two brigs, had arrived
at Campeachy, from Vera Cruz, with
reinforcements. The following para
graph appears in one of the Menda
I he whole amount oi me pieseiu
reinforcement does not exceed 300
men, who, with the former 400, will
make 700 in all, being the total force

ble to 'detach. ? We- have now but
2500 nion in all to combat. Cour

A pietiy warm fight Fce on

one . thousand strung, under
,.. f General Andratte,. took
possession of the lortified town of

China, about, two league
1 a . ..vi.M.ir- the morninx of
the 4 th, nine hundred men, command
ed by Uen. Lego, sailed Irom Cam
peacnv, and belo.e day-break the ad
vance'uoard of 150 men attacked the
Mexican outposts, and He Mexicans
retreated to the village, where a brisk
skirmish ensued. Soon u.i
main body of the Campeachanos
reached the scene of action, and in
th confusion, fired upon their friend
instead of their enemies. By the first
discharge of their cannon about 30
of the advance guard were slain.
Finally, a general engagement ensu
ed, the soldiers on both sides fight
ing with considerable bravery and
vigor. Over five hundred Mexicans
were destroyed in the engagement.
Among the killed was the command
er, General Andradc, one Colonel,
and a son of President banta Anna,
holding the rank of cantains On the
sideot the Mexicans, the slaughter
is represented as most dreadful. The
Yucatecos lost but seventy men.
The village church, occupied by the
Mexicans, at the commencement of
the engagement, with one or two oth
er buildings, was burnt. This action,
it is probable, will be attended with
important results. The Mexicans
belore Campeachy, will bs convinced
that they are contending with a foe
not easily daunted. e are inlorm
ed that ihe Yucatecos intend to is
sue a Declaration of Independence,
and adopt a National Flag immedi
ately. The account of the attack upon
Sisal, by the steamer Montezuma, is
fully confirmed. About eight o'clock,
on the morning of the 28th of Jan.,
the Montezuma made her appearance
in the harbor, with the colors of the
United States at her mast head
When within distance to reach the
town with her shot she hauled dow n
the star span-led banner, and her olli
cers amused themselves by firin at
the town about an hour. The prin
cipal damage was sustained by an
American schooner in the harbor, the
name of which we could not learn.
We are informed that the Cam
peachanos are in fine spirits,and there
is not the slightest probability that
the city will lall iulu the hands of the
Mexicans. On the contrary, if the
Mexicans remain in that vicinity
much longer, they will expeiieuc'e
gieater le verses tnan any tint have
vet been recorded, ending, perhaps,
in uie total ue-truction ot the Heet.
