In this plan tbe people, in their ordinary busi

Tbi SooreUry entertains tbe opinion tbat if a
credit circulation in any form be desirable, it
is most desirable lo this. ' Tbe notes thus issued
aud secured would, In his judgment,! form the
safest currency which this country has ever en
joyed; while their roceivability for all govern ,
mens dues; except customs, worn a maxe mem,
,Wfrever payable, of equal value, as a curren
cy in' vary -part of - tho Union.' The large
amount. of specie low1 In the United States,
reaching a total riot lefts than two hundred and
seventy-five millions of flollars, will easily sup
port payments 'ot duties in coin, whils these
payments and ordinary demands will aid in re?

Tb whole cireulatlon ot the country, exoept
a Uotited amosut of foreign coin, would, after
tim lapse o two w three years, bear the Im
present tha nation, whether in coin or notes;
while the amount of tbe latter, always easily
ascertainable, acd, of course, always generally
known, would not bo likely to be increased be
yond th renl wants of business.
i H 'expresses afl opinion In' fa vot bf this plan
with the greater confidence, because it has the
advantage ot Yecommcudatioo from experience
It la not au nntried theory. In tbe State of New
York and In one or more of the ether States it
has been sabfeeted, In Its most essential srtsj
to- tbo 4st of experiment, sod has been found
practicable and useful. Th probabilities of
uecew will not be dimintsned but increased ty
its adoption nnder national sanctlon-and for tho
whole country, ,1
- It owlv remains to add that the plan Is recom
mended by on other consideration, which, in
the judgment ot the Secretary, Is entitled to
much influence. - It avoids almost, if not alto
gether, tba evils bf a groat and sudden change
In the currency by offering inducements to sot
vent existing institutions to withdraw the c'irou
ratios Issued under State authority; and substi
tuta that provided by tha authority of the Union,
Thus, through tb voluntary kctlon of the ex
isting Institutions, aided by wise legislation, the
groat transition front's, currency heterogeneous,
noenual. and unsafe
, to one c".;cra, cquai ana
safe, may be speedily and almost imperceptibly
aocompnsbed. - , , .
i 'Tf1he Secretary Las bmted tbs discussion ol
the question of the constitutional power of Con
gress to put this plan in operation, it ia because
110 argument la necessary lo establish the dtodo
altlon that the power to regulate commerce and
tbe value of coin lnoiudes ue power to regulate
the currency or tne country, or tne collateral
proposition tbat tho powor to effect the end in

To -obtain ,'a ' clear nndcrstandintr of the
amount for, which it will become necessary to

the financial movement of tbe treasury during

snd ths portions which bavo been or will
be paid or contracted In each year, will appear
fully la a table, which will be submitted with
this report to Congress. Another table will be
submitted, showing the amount of the public
debt in each year, from 1791 to lool, inclusive.
The Secretary, believing that tbe iraokeat is
tbe wisest policy for nations aa well as individ
uals, has thought it bis duty to submit to Con
gress this plain statement of the financial con
dition ot, the country ' That it imposes consid
erable burdens ts not tb be denied or disgnised.
It is consoling to know that the energies and
resources of the people ars not insufficient for
tbem. ' The public debt on the 1st of July, 1863,
if tho war be protracted until that time, on the
scale of expenses contemplated by the estimates,
will be, In round numbers, nine hundred millions
of dollars. - Tbe amount of the public debt in the
year 1816 was 1127,334,933 74, and in twenty
yeara it was paid off by the people. ., The coun
try, eved if tbe loyal rJta'.ee only are regarded,
can sustain and pay off In thirty years tbe debt
to which rebellion now exposes os with hardly
greater proportional contributions from increas
ed aad increasing resources than that debt made
necessary.' " " ' ' " '" .
- It will be for the wisdom of Congress to de
termine how far the annual and aggregate bur
dens of the people shall be diminished byre
tronohment, by economy, by prudeut yet vigor
ous adjustment of means to ends, snd by just
contributions from rebel property." " Nothing
more certainly enhances credit and improves re
sources than the reduction of wants .and wise
energy In'adminlstratlon. ' , ;..; I
Tho Secretary forbears making any recom
mendation concerning the authorities with which
it may be expedient to Invest him in respect to
future loam. He begs leave to refer this mat
ter altogether to tho better judgment of Con
gress, suggesting only that, wbat-ver discre
tion it may be thought prudent to give him in
other respects, the rate of interest be limited by
law. -.' ' , ..
Turning from tho more immediate consider
atlon of tba trablid finances, tbe Secretary so
licits the attention of Congress to some other
topies connected with tbe administration of tbo
By tbo act of Congress Of July 13, 1861, com
mercial intercourse, with States declared to be
in insurrection by the President, was prohibit
ed. and the Secretary of the Treasury was au
thorised to establish such rules and, regulations
as he might deem expedient 10 accordance
with whteb, nnder license from tbe Presidout,
a restricted trade might be conducted. Upon full
consideration of the - whole subject, it has not
been deemed advisable as yet to establish any
general rules and regulations for such a trade. Jn
a 'few instances; special licenses have been
granted to eonvey particular articles of proper
ty Into insurrectionary States, and to carry on a
limited trade with parts of Eastern Virginia in
habited by loyal people; but, with these incon
siderable exceptions, it has been hitherto thought
best to enforce the prohibition to tbe full extent
of the act. As the act itself, however, does
not seem to contemplate the forfeiture ' of pro
perty, unless used fur tbe purposes of tbe rebel
lion, or found in transit to or from insurrection
ary Ststes, its execution has not been extended
beyond tbat intent. - " ' ",'iJ ,,
To avoid, aa tar as possiDie, tne practical in
convenience of this suspension of commerce,
tbs Secretary, with (he approbation of the Pres
ident, has established regulations, in accordance
with which cotton, rice and other property will
be collected aud cared for by agents of tbe de
partment in Insurrectionary districts' occupied ,
by troops of tbe Onion, and will be forwarded
by aea to New York. All sales will be made
for account of tbe government', and the pro
ceeds paid Into the national treasury, subject to
any just claims of loyal citizens. This arrange
ment Mttf course, temporary In Its nature.
As a eeneral rule, m tbe judgment or tne sec
retary, commerce should follow tho flag; and
whenever the authority of the Union ts fully re
stored In districts sufficiently extensive for the
re establishment of loyal State government,
affording due security against abuse of trade in
famishing aid and comfort to rebellion, tbe
ports should bs opened without restriction, ar.d
all commerce freely permitted. L:' ".''.'
With aview to reformation or abnses and re
duction of expenses, tbe Secretary has canted
moot of the collection districts la all the States
and Territotiea not under Insurrectionary con
tral tab visited by an officer of bis department.
Their inquiries bare led to the abolition of some
of&oefl, and a redaction of the allowance and
compensation-HO' -the lueumbetita of others,
amounting' to $75,095 annually. "This sum,
with too temporary reduction of annual ex
ponded, oceafet.-ned by tha suspension of official
dutie"io 'the' rebellious States, amounting to
$644,141.68, Will more than suffice for all the
sxpenses'krieiug dnder the act of Jaly for the
additional agent Inspector, and aids; required
for Ita dud execution and tbe prevention of ille
gal trafflo. -. ,-.-r :t; ;;;!."'
Th thu fcoiiriectlon the Secretary asks permis
sion to direct tbe attention' of Congress to', the
fact tbat surveyors of ports at several pomvs in
.ha Mtanlaainnl valley are almost' exclusively
copied by tboir duties nnder ths act of July,
aud are subjected in conseqnenss to labors and
responsibilities for which tli compensation ttow.

Tbe silver mines of Nevada and Arizona
havo also yielded large returns; and the protec
tion of the citizens, engaged in extracting their
treasures, from insurrectionary and savage vio
lence, demands th earnest consideration of
ConereBB.
No means exist of ascertaining, with abso
lute certainty, tbe quantity of coin now in the
United States; but tbe best accessible data lead
the Secretary to concur in tbe judgment of tbe
uirector pr tug oiiui, -mat too amount is Be
tween two hundred and soventy-fivo millions
apd three'hundred millions of dollars. j
Tbe Secretary takes great pleasure in direct
ing the' attention of Congress to tho ablo and
instructive report of that officer, and to the sug
gestions it contains. , , .-. . -
under tne act oi juiy z, 1001, iaiee emus
have beon presented, by tbe authorized agents
of the governors of several States; for expenses
incurred oa account of troops raised by tbem
respectively, aud employed lor tho suppression
of the Insurrection; but as the act authorizing
the settlement of tbeae claims required (proper
vouchers in support of them to b filed and
pacGed upon by the accounting- offiowsrand as
no such vouchers have, bs yet, been furnished, it
has been hitherto impracticable to adjuat and pay
tbem. . Inasmuch, however, ss those expendi
tures were incurred at -a time when Congress
was not in session, and when tne public exigency
was imperative, and were marked, so far as the
statements submitted to him disclosed their
eh-rscter, by discretion-asd patriStSsS, .ts j Sec
retary thought himself warranted in advancing
to the several States, upon certificates of tho
State officers to the general correctness of tbe
accounts and on condition tbat no further claim
should be made on account of tbe expenses con
templated by the act until after final settlement
upon vouchers, the enm of forty per centum of
their respective demands; and ho has according
ly paid to tbe States of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa,
Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hamp
shire, New Jersey, Ohio,. Pennsylvania, Rbude
Island, and Wisconsin the aggregate earn of
$4,514,078.51. . J
As tbe law did not seem to contemplate tbe
continued action of State officers for federal
objeota, but confined the appropriation made by
it to expenses inourred, leaving expenses to be
incurred to tbe action of fedtral officers witbin
their respective spheres bf duty, tbo Secretary
has not thought himself authorized to settle is
the unusual mode nrovided bv the act. excent
for advances actually made, or at least contract
ed tor prior to its paesige. All otner claims
are, and will be, referred to. tbo War Depart
ment for sanction and requisition, unless Con
gress shall be pleased to direct otherwise.
Anactot tne last Congress authorized tbe
payment of claims, allowed for certain services
and expenses in Oregon and Washington, to be
made by the issue of bonds of the United
States, bearing six per cent, interest, and paya
ble twenty years after date. The Secretary
most respectfully asks the attention of Congress
tb the injurious influences of authorizing such
issues for such purposes. - Claims are easily al
lowed when payment is to be 'made otherwise
than in money, and bonds Issued for claims are
apt to come into the market in competition with
bonds Issued for loans, to tbe serious pre)udioe
of tbe publio crdt. .That no important injury
has resulted from tbo aot just referred to U to
be attributed , to the iaiihiul . vigilance - of the
intra .Auditor in - the examinations Of tbe
claims made upon the- treasury, nnd compara
tively small amount of bonds, -not exceeding,
probably, two millions eight hundred thousand
dollars in all, Issued or to be issued In fajment
The attention of Congress lis respoctfully di
rected to the operations of the Fifth Auditor
in respect to the abuses which have been tolcr
ated in the consular systom, and the expediency
of authorizing the appointment of a 'consul
general for the coast and islands of the Fa
oifio. '. .' '
In disregard of repeated wainings of impend
ing danger in December last, the Secretary of
tne lisusury, in ouice at the time, neglected to
tnke tbe necessary measures to secure the ves
sels aud othor movable property connected wtth
the light-house establishments.- - This property,
thcrefcre, became tbe easy prey of irsarrectlon
ary violence. Acts of rapine and plunder fol
lowed each Other in quick succession as tbe rc-
bellion-eprsad,- until tbe light -of -commerce
wer extioco'sbed along th wholo'-eoait-ei

prjieciea uj tae power oi uie union irom tne
cases of the Chesapeake rjund the western lim
its of Texas In other par's of the Country the
light-house system has been extended and im
proved, nntil it is surpsssed in aids aud benefits
to navigation and commerce by that of no otber
country. Under the direction of tbe Secretary
also, as the rebellion has oeen suppreessd in dis
trict after die riot, the lights bavo been rekin
dled. Already from the coasts of the Chesa
peake, (rjm tbe banks of Hatteras, from the
islands of Port Royal entrance, and H orn Cban
deleur Inland In the Gulf, they shine once more
as tbe safeguards and symbols of fraternal com
merce and peaceful civilization. May we not
hope tbat tbe time is not far off wben every ex
tinguished light shall be ia like mannsc restored
amid tha rejoicings of a reunited people?
.The Secretary respectfully invites legislative
attention to the condition bf the marine hosoi.
tals constructed or in process of construction.
The number lias been Hrcreaeed tar beyond ne
cessity or utility, and to the serious prejudice of
the fund for sick and disabled seamen, derived
from the hard earnings of th meritorious class
which they . belong, At -present, indeed,
Some of these hospitals are made available' for
the benefit of the troops, but this use must nec
essarily b partial1 and temporary."' Of these,
therefore, as well as those not thus used, tho
Secretary recdmmend that thoe least advan
tageously situated and employed, be disposed bf
on the most favorable terms, and tbat no new
