THE NATIONAL FINANCES.
A Review of Mr. Edward Atkinson's
Worcester Speech,
by R. J. Atkinson, Esq.
, . i. .:-.: : v, :'! ... -i.) .1;;
i An address of Edward Atkinson,-Eiq,
o ltostcn,: recently -delivered before tine
Republican State Convention ia Massachu
setts,' oh' the subject of national debt and
expenditures, has been published as an au
thoritative document," and beraided as a
complete justification of the- Republican
financial policy.: The -address may be re
garded as a semi-official document, the author
announcing, to give additional weight and
authority to the statements therein con-
talneey that "If there is any merip in tne
lollowinjc analysis of the expenditures of
the, lst three years, I can only claim the
plan and method upon which it is placed
before you. All the dat have been fur
nished, me by the Hon. David. A. Wells."
- ; t - i - I - .. -
I have said that I have been able to make
the statements which are included in this
address by the aid of my- friend,' David A.
Well,apecial(Jommissioner otthe Kevenue,
to whom' I applied, in order that I might
ave the force of an official statement to prove
iy fiohition. No man stands nigher In the
uutiUencef the people, and no wander
manr's tnac continence more, witn a sin
tie eye to the truth, he gives to his work
the lorce ot aa enthusiasm rarely to be
found, and hence the. power and value ot
every document that comes from his band."
With such an endorsement. It la not sur
prising that the statements in this address,
and the conclusions arrived at, have not
only attracted much attention, but claimed
decree ot confidence bevond that civen
to unofficial statements. At the request of
some friends,-! nave caretully - examined
the statistics and arguments contained in
this address, aud propose to consider, In as
brief a manner as possible, some ot the most
important points tnerein set tortn.
In the present condition ot the country.
and critical condition ot our financial af
fairs, what is most to be desired by all who
are interested in its prosperity and wel
fare, is the "truth." To the attainment of
this object, every good citizen should con
tribute whatever he can. I concede to the
author of the address, and his official in
spirer, ail Ihe ."enthusiasm" for truth so
modestly claimed. At the same time
cannot but regret that a F more charitable
spirit had not been manifested towards
those who might, perchance, happen todit-
r with regard to the facts or conclusions
presented dv tne autnor or tne aaaress.
Hence, I regretted to see the charge made,
in the very outset, . that '"the Democratic
party fears the truth and I was further
su prised to gee other denunciations, in
partisan language, entirely out ot place
in an onicia." or' semi omciai- aocu
menr. prepared "with a single eye to the
truth." Under the official mantle of
Mr. Wells, the author .appears as
the selected and inspired champion ot the
financial policy of the .Republican party.
Under such circumstances a private citi
zen, with nothing but-the official report,
made under authority of law, to guide him
in his researches, amid the clashing of ng
ores and the maze of conflicting theories
of high officials, may well hesitate before
entering such a field of controversy. Be
lieving, however, that the public, welfare
will be promoted by the fullest comparison
of views on all sides, and that by thorough
investizal.Ion "the truth" may be arrived
at, I propose to submit some considerations
on this vexed- question of our national
finances,', as" presented in- this -address,
claiming no official inspiration, but only an
honest intention to state lacts as they ap
pear in official reports, and to consider
them In their true relation to our national
finances, and the Interests ot the tax-pay
ing people.
-What did to otee m 1865?" The first
point made in the address is the amount of
indebtedness in isto. It t stated that the
ascertained debt of thn United States on
the 1st day of April, 1865, as entered on the-.
books of the Treasury, amounted to $2.
366 955,077; that four months afterwards
on 1st August, 1865 the debt, as shown on
the books, was 2,.57.6SU,oil; aud that the
latter sum has beeu assumed ot late to have
been the maximum debt of the country at
any ono time. This assumption is stated to
be incorrect, tor the reason tnat these ngures
only embraced the amountof debt actually
entered on the books of the Treasury, when
there existed at that time a liability tor
large sum tor which the Government was
bound, but not tut-n liquidated, ana wnicn
has since been recognized ana paia. This
liability is stated to have been, in round
numbers, S800.000.000.
.No person, I apprehend, at all con vers
ant with our financial affairs, supposed for
a moment that the published statements ot
public debt referred to In April and Aus-
ust, lsea, represented tne aggregate liaoiu-
ties of the Government growing out of the
war.' If there are any "Democratic lead
ers" who made such representations, "they
were certainly mistaken in the tacts.
Evervbodv knows, or ought to know, that
the monthly statements issued by the Sec
retary of the Treasury embrace only that
part ot the mueoteaness oi tne tiovern
ment represented by bonds, treasury notes.
or other forms of obligations, and the cur
rency called "greenbacks." It is no doubt
true, therefore, that the indebtedness of the
Government, liquidated and unliquidated,
amounted in the year 1S65 to the sum of
$3 287,733,320, as claimed, and more than
that, as we will find; but that only proves
that when the Republican leaders pointed
to the reports of the Secretary, showing the
indebtedness to Oe only .o.ualJ,671, in
answer to the assertion of the "Democratic
party leaders," that the "burden ot debt
imposed upon the country by the war was
from three to four thousand million dol
lars." tbev were themselves keeping back
irora the people the fact that an indefinite
amount of indebtedness was yet in the
background, unliquidated, which would
swell the amount to the sum estimated by
the "Democratic party leauers."
But the important part of this statement
Is the assertion that "since that date the
Republican twrty has paid over S800 000.-
000 or one-quarter of the principal of the
publio debt, Desiaes paying tne interest."
Again it is said, "We have paid $800,000,
000 of our debt in the last three years, and
at least $200,000,000 of extra interest or
guaranty, the latter paid in consequence of
the dishonest purposes ot the Democratic
Dartv." This is the keynote of the address
It is the great point, to sustain which all
the figures and ' statements are directed.
Now. bear in mind that this $800 000,000
ot the "publio debt," this "one-gtiarter of
the principal or tne puouc aeow auegea to
have Deetrpaio, is auiuitteu never. to nave
been included in the statements of public debt
at all- But is alleged that at tne close ot
the war viz: in April, 1865 there was a
large amount ot Indebtedness not liquida
ted, and therefore not embraced in the
statements of public debt, which has since
been paid. It is, i.o doubt, true that a con
siderable portion ot this unliquidated in
debtedness has been adjusted and paid .dur
ing the last three years oi enormous re
ceipts. It would De strange, indeed, it
such were not the fact. But this affords no
ground for tne assertion tnat "one-quarter
of the principal of the public debt has been
paid, as we enau see. xaa auuross states

1st July, I860, instead of from 1st April,
1865, amounted to mors than the amount here
stated. The address then proceeds to state
that, at the surrender of the rebel armies in
April, 1865, the Government was liable on
contracts executed, or in process ot execu
tion; that it owed the troops back pay, &c;
that "large payments, the liability tor
which actuallv existed during the time,
and which were properly part and parcel
of the expenses of active war, were carried
over into the year succeeding the war, and
were then largely paid trom the enormous
receipts of revenue for that year."
1 And further, ia explanation, it says :
This liability for "bact pay, for the iiav of
the troops to the date of their possible dis
charges, for their transportation, . and for
the settlement of contracts, formed a Dart
of the debt of the United States on the 1st

settled, and the bonds Issued and entered o i
the books of the Treasury . Department.

And the expenditures on account .of the

319,773;-whereby it is shown that the ex

NavY Departments from 1st April. J1865,
till 30th June, 1866, amounted to $774,856,-

The following conclusion is then arrived
at; :. - : -;. - , -, ' ., s -.. - .,
i Vlt is, therefore, not only legitimate, but
strictly in accordance with the facts, to as
sume that thit large expenditure of nearly
$800,000,000 from April 1, 1865, to June 30,
isobv was In every sense a war expenditure,
and that it was a-liability on the 1st of
August, 1865,'? &o. :;
It is surprising that any. person, official
or private citizen, should assume that the
total expenses on account of the army and
navy trom 1st July, 1865, till 1st July, 18b(i,
were "toar expenditures," chargeable to the
public debt as it existed on 1st August,
1865. It is not doibted that a considerable
amount of the expenditures charged on ac
count of the War and Navy Departments
rrom 1st April. 1865, till 1st July, 1866, wat
on account of liabilities incurred before the
close ot the War. Such liabilities are yet in
existence, and will remain unsettled - for
years. But the J sum stated is en
tirely , .too large. It . Is preposter
ous to set up all the expenses of
the army and navy till. 1st July, 1866,' as
part ot the war debt existing in August,
1803. . . ...... .....
In addition to these expenses, the ad
dress claims still further deductions, as fol

"But the liabilities which existed at that

of $802,733,320, or about one-quarter of our
entire liaDi'ity." , "And now we be
gin to see to what purpose the revenue ot

I regret the necessity of questioning
statement esteemed so favorable to ."the
credit of the United States." Butthe cred
it of the United States will be best sub
served, I apprehend, in the promulgation
ot the "truth;" and if this gratifying
statement is not based on the actual facts,
it is ot vital importance to the people as
well as the "credit ot the United States,"
that its fallai les should be exposed.
: Observe, now, in this statement showing
a reduction of $302 733 329 in the last three'
years, is an item of $414,196,377, being for
.fHsbursements by the War Department
fr m April 1 till June 30. I860. What has
this to do with the question of amount of
mueoteaness on the 1st of August, 1865.
and reduction of the public debt made since
that timer The disbursements having been
made, the indebedness was liquidated, so tar
as the creditors ot the Government were
concerned, when the payment was made.
The payment could not have been made
without the means. It the disbursements
were made in greenbacks they would
pear in the Treasury statements of public
debt: in like manner, if in seven-thirty
notes, compound interest notes, or certifi
cates of indebtedness, all of which are
included in the public debt statement
As au item of expenditure in the rear,
it, ot course, forms a part; but it has no
other relation to the amount ot Govern
ment indebtedness on the 1st of August,
1865- Having been expended in the period
named, it passes into the general aggregate
of expenditures for the fiscal year 1864-5,
with theotner expenditures ror tnat year,
It cannot, therefore, be deducted from the
expenditures on account of the army made
after 1st July, 1865, nor allowed as a set off
trom the collections made thereafter. The
debt statement of 1st August, 1865, era
braced all liquidated debt, whether repre
sented by bonds, compound-interest notes,
seven-thirty notes, certificates ot indebt
edness, or graeubacks at that time, and this
laree item having been expended before the
30th June, cannot be added to the debt of
August, 1865. It the disbursements were
made in currency, that is included; the
same if in seven-thirty notes, 01 other
forms of indebtedness used. This sinel
item disposes of more than half the amount
of public debt claimed to have been paid off
during the last mree years.
With regard to the balance of this sum
claimed to have been applied to the rmv
inent ot the public debt, embraced In army
and navv expenditures during the last
three years, it is only necessary to say that
no authority or data wnatever is presented
for auv such showing. 11 is simply an as
Riimntion. supported by no evidence, and,
therefore, no means presented whereby to

suras from . sales . . of. property.
supplies, .vessels' .material, fcc
on band 'hot 'needed after ' the 1 close
ot the war, and sold iu the market for cash.
All these sums realized from sales ot prop
erty, supplies, ic, were applied and used
Dy them, in addition to the appropriations
made hy Congress.' "These extraordinary
receipts do not appear in the general state
ment of receipts and expenditures, al
though the departments have the benefit
of the money, the same as if It had been
collected by taxation.-' In the War Depart
ment alone it is officihlly stated these re
ceipts from sales of property, since
the 1st of July, 1865, and up"till 1st Julv,
1868, ' amounted to $74,745 610; and the
Navy Department is reported to have re
ceived during the same period, the sum
ot $40,628 664, making $115,374,180 receiv
ed by the War and Navy Departments, in
addition to the regular appropriations, and
expended by them. In the address no
mention is made or these receipts. This
vast sum is totally ianorett in this semi-offi
cial document.' 1 '
Now add this sum of $115,374,180, re
ceived from ; sales of property, supplies.
&c-,to the balance of admitted expendi
ture, as above, of $128,427,495, and we have

ing any . year of his official term;
and more than double the -i expenses
of the army and navy during the last
year of his administration, they amounting
only to 35,4UU,V2V. it does not follow
from these facts merely, that the War and
.Navy departments are improvident -or ex
travagant iu the use of the money expend
ed by them. . They may be economical, for
aught that appear-. Hut the lact is plain
that these expenditures are enormous; and
whether, they, are the result of reckless

a large standing army aud consequent ex

This is, indeed, a remarkable showing.
Let us proceed to test its accuracy.
EXPENDITURES FROM 1ST JULY, 1865, TILL
1ST JULY, 1868.
The official reports of the Register of the
the Treasury, embraceed iu the reports of
the Secretary ol the Treasury, on the
finances, state the expenditures of the last
two fiscal years as follows :

Now, deductions are claimed as ex

Thus, after making these deductions, we
find a balance of expenditures in the three
years of $310,676 051. or an average ot
$270,225,350 per annum for ordinary expenses.
and excluding interest on debt, pensions,
bounties. State war claims, and claims of
loyal citizens. If we were to ded uct $ 150,
000,000 more to cover alleged liabilities con
tracted before 1st Julv, 1M65, there would
still remain $660,676 051. or an average ex
penditure ot 9220,228,683 per annum, near
ly four times the expenditures ot the last
year of Buchanan's administration, instead
of "$15,000,000 less," as stated. I have, in
this statement, excluded the $5,617,000 on
account of Freedmen's Bureau from the
deductions.
I have made this showing on the figures
presented in the address the "income," or
receipts into the Treasury, being set down
at $1,540,053 583, in the period from 1st
April, 1865, till 30th June, 1868, three and a
quarter years. The foregoing calculations
bave been made on this basis, assuming the
amount of receipts to be correctly stated.
I propose now to show that from 1st July,
1865, till 1st July, 1868, a period of only
tftree years, the-receipts Into the Treasury
were in excess of the amount stated.
The official reports of the Register ol the
Treasury, accompanying the report of the
Secretary ot the Treasury on the finances,
state the. receipts each year as follows:
1865-
1866- 7
1867- 8 ( Mr. Delmar's statement)
To which a-ld reotipts by United
States Treasurer from sales of prop
erty and other miscellaneous
sources (Mr. Delmar's ttateinent):

1860-7
1867 8

45.715.162 II
44,57-1,530 37
Total receipts 01.600,820,619 13
Here Is an excess ot $60,262,236 of re
ccipts in three years over the amount ol
receints for three and a quarter years, as
stated in the address. I make no attempt
to explain the discrepancy, but simply call
attentiou to the fact. If this be the true
amount, as 1 have every reason to believe
it is,' it increases the amount to be account
ed for to that extent. And to this should
be udded the receipts for the period from
1st April to 30th June. 1865, stated in the
address' at $83,514,162. thus increasing the
discrepancy to $143,776,393.
EXPENDITURES—CIVIL LIST.
' Let us now contrast some ot the items of
expenditure the last three years with those
of a similar character during Buchanan's
administration. The item of "civil and
miscellaneous" expenses is set down at
$149,145,805 tor the three years averaging
nearly fifty millions per annum. During
last vear this item is reported by Mr. Del-
... -f -JfiQW,7. a sum npurlir . r.,,.,1 tr.

Buchanari'sadministratlon lor all purposes,
including the army and navy 1 ' '''''
BUCHANAN'S EXPENSES.
Again: The address sets .dowa the ex-
penses-of the lat rear of Mr. Buchanan's
administration at $70,811,000. , This is in
correct. The official reports show that the
expenses tor the tlscnl year ending 30th
June, 1861, were only $62,537,171. exclusive
of principal and interest on the public
debt. 1 During' the' year previous, ending
30 h June, I860, they, were $66,010,112.
Everybody remembers how these expenses
were denounced as extravagant in the po
litical canvass of 1860. J They formed the
chief piank In the Chicago platform of that
year. Yet now the -expenses under the
single-'head of "civil and miscellaneous,"
excluding entirely the army and ' navy,
equal ' almost the' - 'entire ' expenses 1 -untier
JSuehmuMl n-, . ..-hi tO i.V.'-Kf r-r
EXECUTIVE EXPENSES.
Take the item of expenditures on account
of the "executive." During the two last
years of Buchanan's administration, ' the
total expenses on account or the executive
was $3,709,161, or an average of $1,854,580
per annum. The expenses on account of
executive for the year ending 30th . June,
1867,-were 9,603.101.' The average expen
ditures under this head' for eight-years
previous to 1361 were: $1,883,510 . per. an
num.. Assuming the expenses of the year
1867-8 to be the same as those of the year
previous the average expenses for the
seven years since 1861 will be $5,432,624 per
annum, being three timts the average ex
penditures of . the eight, years previous.
And so we find it in every brauch of the
Government, whether directly or remotely
connected -. with' war expenses or not
Look at the Congressional -expenses, tor
instance. During the eight years of Pierce
and Buchanan's administrations,' with a
full Senate and House, the expenses aver

RECAPITULATION.
' i I have now examined the leading points
contained in this address.; A recapitula
tion is presented in which it js attempted
to be shown that the maximum 01 tne pun
He debt on 1st August, 1865, was $3,287,
733,329, and a statement of the different
lorms in which the debt existed. Practi
cally, it is a matter of little importance, ex
cept as a statistical fact, whether the pub
lie debt was the amount claimed at this par
ticular period or not. We know what it is
nous We know how much money lies been
cellected from the people and expended
during the last seven years.' These two
amounts comprise the- sum total of ex
penses of the Government during four
vears of war and three and a half years ol
quasi war. The financial exhibit for the last
seven years presents the following result

This is a simple statement, notcomoliea-
ted with collateral circumstances or detiils.
which cannot be denied or evaded. The
fact of the collection and expenditure ot
the money is shown by the highest offi
cial authority. The fact of the increase of
the debt is known and admitted by all
to property appreciate toe magnitude or
these expenditures, it is only necessarv to
contrast them with the previous history of
tne country, r rom tne rormation 01 the
Government till 1861, a period of seventy
years, the entire collections were only
$1,803,642 259 , and in that period we bad

in which our armies operated on a foreign

In the face of these astonishing figures
and facts, the author ot this- address de
clares :
"I challenge any one to deny that this
exhibit proves that the finances ot the
country have been managed by the Repub
lican party with a success never before
known in the history ot the world."

then is this financial policy a decided sue

Havinsr thus reviewed the lcadinp- finan

proceeding to the consideration of; this

a statement in the address vituperative of
the Democratic party, and indicating in
some degree the animus of the author, as
follows :
"The name of Democrat, in its true sip-
nificance, is one which 1 honor and cher-
ish, and I hope the day is not far oil when
it shall no longer be prostituted to the pur

party which now rests. its chance of success
upon the lgnoranceot its lollowers,ana pro

under the lead of Seymour and Blair."
What response needf to be made to such
a partisan fulmination t . Nothing, save to
