Kiid Miss Katy ; "but so distinguished and

"Well if you invite the Bumble Bees, you

"Those spiteful Hornets, I detest them!"
"Nevertheless, dear Miss Katy, one docs

"No, one can't. There arc those five

To the United Slates Senate:

State of Colorado into the Union," with ray ob

ment all Ihe rights, privilege and interests of
the citizens are protected.
Second. The qualified voters choose their
own Legislators and their own local officers, and
are represented in Congress by a Delegate of
their own selection. Tbey make and execute
their cwn municipal laws subject only to re
vision of Ccngrcss, tn authority not likely to be
exercised unless in extreme or extraordinary
cues. The population is small some estimat
ing it so low as twenty-five thousand while ad
vocates of the bill reckon the number at from
thirty-five thousand to forty thousand souls.

of whom arc understood to be ready for re

I think, a painful and a baleful prominence a.
a toeial and political fact of modern expe
rience. (Hear.) I do est know whether the
House is aware to what extent this mischievous
and injurious process is going on; but I will re
fer first tc wbat I do not hesitate to declare I
contemplate with tke fruit anxiety, and that it
the debt of the United States. The debt of the
United States is in itself something wonderful
wonderful as the creation of four years, strictly
of four years, and co more,and yet amounting to
nearly 3,",X.iO,00ij dollars, or 600,fM,noO,
and the rate of growth ot the debt m the last
year exceeded. 1 think, S2OO,O0O.C. That
is a wonderful debt, and its charge is enormous.
It is sot possible in the present stvte of the finan
cial arrangements of that country to ascertain
with precision but I believe I am cot wrong in say.
ing th-it the charge of that debt t' considerably
header than ourt, though the capital is less.
(Hear, hear) The smallest sum at which
I can estimate the charge is thiity one or thirty,
two million sterling; and if upon the back of
that sum we lay the necessary cost of raising
the revenue, which ia America is much heavier
tbaa it is here, I do cot think tbe effective
amount of taxation iccumlenr upon the cation
at this time in consequence of the Northern debt
(I do not include one farthing of the Southern
dibt) cannot be taken at less than nearly thirty,
five millicns sterling per annum. Well, cow,
lookingat these figures, ose would bestruck with
struck with something like despair; but if we
look at Ihe position of the country which has to
bear the burden I must confess that I think the
future of .Imerica, as far as finance is con
cernedwill not be attended with any embar
rassment. I do not beliete lhat that debt will
constitute any difficulty for Ihe. iaerican people
(Cheers.) I am confident that if they show
with respect to finance any portion of that ex
traordinary resolution wh.ch an both sides alike
tbey manifested dating the war, aad of that
equally remarkable resolution with which on
the return of peace they have brought their
monstrous and gigantic establishments within
moderate bounds (hear, hear) I won't say
that this debt, according to an expression which
was once fashionable in this country, will be a
fieabite (a Iauh) but that in a moderate
time it will te brough. within very small limits,
and may, within the lifetime of persons now
living, be effaced altogether. (Hear, hear.) At
this moment America is, I believe, paying war
taxes, and the amount ot tbe revenue of tbe
Uniteil States is not lets. I apprehend, than
about eighty millions of money, tbe largest sum
ever raised in any country for Ihe pnposes of a
central government. Tbe estimattd surplus is
frcm twenty to thirty millions sterling a year,
and I believe at present only about ten millions
cf tbeir taxation are mroaced by the natural
impatience of tbe people with respect to some of
, h h fi minister of that country,

icgly urges tbe policy of reducing the debt.
and 1 am quite certain that from this side of the
water ire shall send him a hearty expression ef
good withes for his tuccest, both on account of
our interest in the well being of a friendly na
