Mr. J. OLANCY JONES. If the committee will in- p
lulge rue for a short time, I will endeavor to confine my- u
elf to a few nolier facts in relation to the finances of the t
ountry. It might not perhaps be inappropriate to say ?
o the gentleman from Massachusetts [Mr. Iliac isuamb) k
hat, as he has made a war speech, 1 shall expect him, ?
vheu called upon, to respond to all claims for expendi- r
.urea for such a purpose. I do not promise now, Mr. j
Ihairnian, to make a lengthy speech on the question. I e
mow that the House is im|>aticnt to get through with v
ts business, with a view to an early adjournment, i shall t
intent myself now with a simple statement, availing ,

my colleague will not yield. j
Mr. J. GLANCY JONES. At the opening of the scs- ,
ilon of Congress, the Secretary of the Treasury, in nub- t
initting his estimates and his reports, referred to the con- <|
Jition of the finances of the country generally, uud particularly
to the recent revulsion. From a full treasury'with i
a surplus of twenty or thirty millions of dollars on the (
4th of March last, wc have now a deficiency of $20,000,- j
000. I do not propose to go into an argument to show |
the causes which produced this very extraordinary result. ,
There are a great many different theories on the subject. ,
I simply wish to confine myself to facts, uud leave every (
gentleman to make up his own mind or to adopt his own <
theory and carry it into practice if he can. f
I had intended, if this bill laid come up at an earlier j
day, to have occupied the full extent of my hour in de- ' j
bating fully and frankly in all its bearings our revenue |
system?a subject which Borne gentlemen seem to think ]
there is a disposition to avoid upon this side of the j
House. It is said that wo havo an empty treasury, that |
we have borrowed $20,000,000, and are alout to borrow ,
$15,000,000 more, and yet that the Committee of Ways i
and Means is entirely silent as to the mode of replenishing
the treasury. 1 would be the last man to be guilty 1
of an omission of this kind if it were in the power of the ]
Committee of Ways and Means at this particular period i
to remedy this evil. But 1 know, every gentleman in ,
this House knows, and the country knows, that an ad- i
justment of the tariff at this particular juncture would
not add a dollar to the revenue, and we know the addi- |
tional fact that if a protective tariff wore imposed at this
particular period upon the people, so far from benefiting ]
cither the revenue or any interest of the country, it would
entail evils upon us that gentlemen upon the other side of
the House would he the firsl to disavow and to hold us re- i
sponsible for. If the tariff at this session were put at 60
per cent, it would not yield one dollar of revenue. In
consequence of the cessation of imports, no tariff could
affect either the revenue or the manufacturing interests.
The attempt and failure would only unsettle and confuse
instead of giving stability, or inspiring woll-founded
hopes for the future.
But it is scut forth to the country that we arc unwilling
to afford relief even on our own priuciple. We havo
often proclaimed to the whole country tliaf we are not in
favor of a tariff for protection alone, but that wo are in
favor of a tariff for revenue, and that under such a tariff,
with revenue for its object, wo will at all times do everything
that wo can consistently with this principle to incidentally
benefit our domestic interests. That is our
position, and If any gentleman will show me now how
any adjustment of the tariff can lie made upon that principle
that will yield revenue and benefit the country, I
am ready this moment to act on it. I havo seen no such
practical suggestion anywhere. There must be a revival
of trade ; we must have importations before any tariff of
any kiud whatever can produce any effect; and it is for
this reason, and this alone, that I have proposed that we
shall wait until there is a sufficient revival of trade, that
wc may see how to adjust the tariff with a view to secure
revenue, give stability to the system, and encourage our
own domestic industry, before we attempt to tinker with
it. I have no hesitation in saying now that 1 shall not
favor any tariff' hereafter that is alone for protection in
any of its features without revenue for its object, but if 1
find after a revival of trade that the present tariff' will
not fulfil our expectations, then, and not till then, 1
shall be ready to go into a movement that will give us,
on that principle and ou that basis, sufficient revenue to
meet?not, as some of my friends have intimated, extravagant
expenditures?but the legitimate expenses of
a government economically administered.
1 suppose it is hardly necessary for me to say that 1 am
in favor of the postal system being generally self-sup[iortinir.
I am willinir to no bv judicious legislation for a
self-Bupporting system both inland and foreign, and this
can be effected without increasing the rates of postage, by
reforming the abuse of the franking privilege. The reason
why 1 do not propose it now is precisely tire .saine
reason as that for which I am not willing to act upon the
tariff. I am not willing to run pell-mell into a system of
legislation at the heel of the session, changing laws in
appropriation hills. But I am willing, in the regular
mode of legislation, to reform and revise the postal system,
foreign and inland, and to establish them upon a selfsupporting
Imsii. Having thus given my views, I will
not now enlarge upon them. I have said this much because
it was perhaps due to the josition which I occupy,
and because hints have been thrown out from various
quarters, coming, too, from my own State-, that 1 had the
power but lacked the inclination to come to the relief of
the country, and was disposed to allow Congress to adjourn
without even expressing my sentiments in regard
to the amount of this loan now asked for. The revulsion of
the current fiscal year, I have already remarked, was very
sudden and unexpected. No man could foresee it in all
its bearings. Under our laws the Secretary of the Treasury
is required to report to Congress, each session, the
acts of the jsist, and to estimate for the expenditures of
tho coming flsaal year. He is required to render an annual
report to Congress of the expenditures and disbursements
of the government, and to submit to Congress, at
each session, printed estimates in detail of all expenditures
that will ho required to carry on the government for the next
fiscal year. Our government, from its very foundation,
lias looked for revenue to a system of Indirect taxation, by
the adjustment of a scale of duties on imports, known as
tho tariff. Equity requires that we should, in adjusting
it, throw tho burdens on property and exempt, as
much aapossiblc, the evil of capitation taxation. Direct
taxation would impose nearly the whole burden upon
the personal, real, and mixed estate of the confederacy,
relieving production and poiuonscoinporatively free, upon
tho generally-recognised principle in free government,
that property shall bear the burdens of government as a
consideration for the guarantees of inviolability and protection.
We should, then, if wo adopt the indirect taxation
system, adjust it so an to throw its burden on property.
The tariff should discriminate with 'revenue for its
objoct; it should bear lightly on articles of necessity?of
general consumption?and heavily on luxuries and ar
ttclcs consumed ?y capitalists, or requiring capital for
their production. The revenue of the country, under
any tariff, necessarily depends mainly upon the crops
and production generally, (I mean, of course, a safe,
steady revenue,) and our capacity for exporting theso
staples. Steady exportation will Increase importation,
and safely, too, in that ratio, and consequently enlarge
the revenue by the receipt of imposts. Disaster, however,
is sure to follow the loss of their equillibriuin, as
better experience is now teaching us. Of late years our
imports have vastly exceeded the safe standard, both in
quantity and quality, and, thus engendering overtrading
and a bloated credit system, have brought us to a dead
halt. This apparently overflow of means has led the
government into a scale of expenditures which never
would have been brought about If it had not Kon for
the great apparent prosperity of the country.
In this condition of things, the Secretary of the Trims- j
ury lias been compelled to submit his estimates to Con- j
gress, Ixised upon the condition of trade for the last |
twelve months he must calculate for the future. Amid
the existing fluctuations of triulo, the derangement of the
currency, ami a hundred other pcrplexltiee aiming out of
the panic which wu have jimt ponsm! through. It wn?
rupoosihlc for human foresight U> prepare for all ooiitin
emits. Ho asked at the opening of the session for i
20,000,000. Ho aektsl far that amount iu treasury t
iotas, and not a* a permanent Joau, because lie hoped t'mt 1
rode would revive and sufficient revenue flow into the j
reaaury to npHMfo the acoaasity of relying iifton any
liing but theovurent receipt* U> provide tor the current ex
M-udltur?u of the government-- a temporary credit relieving
, temporary revulsion. He hoped that, in another quartet.
rade would revive to aneb an extent an to enable him to
ay to the country that he Wfo)ted UO more money out
ide of (he receipt*. Money waa plenty in the country,
,nd, being only panic-stricken, It waa anppoaed the panlysis
would he temporary. 'that hope has been diaap
tointed, not in the abundance of money, the crops, nor
x|H>rta, but in the revival of trade. "Ac statements I ?
vill lay I as tore the Uouae will ahow that not ouly lias ;
nolo not revived, but that It has fallen off; and that, i ^
rhile the revenue has been diminishing for tlic last three
[uartein, the expenditures have been increased by the I
J tab war, and tbo demand for payment of debta incurred
vlien the treasury was full. It haa thus become the duty
d the Secretary of the Treasury to bring these facts to
?ur attention and to ask for this additional loan. In his f
-stiuiate* presented-at tire o|ieuing of the session he did '
lot Include Or anticipate the Appropriations of $ 10, OflO, 000
>f dolklmclm, which became ne<-esaary to be supplied to
.ho I'tah expedition.
In submitting his letter asking for this bran, with the
istiinates, Ac., all of which 1 will have read, you will
perceive that he stetea that he has called upon the scv- '
:rul departments >< the government to ascertain the
irobable expenditures for the |K>rtlou of the next liscal '
rear commencing with July and ending with December,
uul the result has been thut the amount required will be '
137,000,000. '
This loon bill lias been kept bock by ma in order to see
what provision would Ik' necessary in view of the appropri
itiou bills, and other hills requiring money which might
mss Congress. The Secretary of tlio Treasury estimates
the receipts from customs and othor services for the two
luarters of the next fiscal year at $20,000,000. This
. i i ..e iu nnn nnn un lion noil
iomeet $37,000,000 of cxpeuiliturt.'g ; but that $37,000,)00
ia baaed upon ehtiuiatea of tho department oxclu
iive of any appropriation tnade by Congreaa in the way of
private bills, or increaaed appropriations beyond the eati
mates of the department. It ia for the purpose of ascertaining
what the difference may be that the loan bill lias
lieen held back by me; but inasmuch as the House ia so
far in advance of the Senate, 1 think it proper to aubuiit the
bill in tho form in which it originated in the Committee
jf Waya and Means. It authorizes $15,000,000 to lie
borrowed on the credit of tho government for fifteen years,
if it passes this House it will then go to the Senate, and
between this time and the aetion of the Senate, the appropriation
bills being passed, the accounting officers of
the treasury will lie enabled to ascertain very nearly the
amount which will be required; whatever above $15,1)00,000
it reaches will be sent to us as an amendment, and
when it comes hero it will be understood that the increase
is demanded to meet the requisition of our recent legislation.
I send to the clerk to lie read the letter of the
Secretary on the subject. The clerk read as follows :
TiULtsi'KY DUMKTMaxT, May 19,1858.
Pin : In view of the early adjournment, 1 desire to call the utlouLlon
of Congress to the present condition of the Usances of llio govern
In uiy annual rejiort 1 estimated tliat there would be a balance In
the treasury, at tbe eml of tlio present Ureal yeor, of $420,875 -57,
which would have required u dellclcncy In our resources of five millions
of dollars to he provided for; us that amount Is necessary, at all
limes, to bo In the treasury for Its prompt and successful operation
Thta estimate w as-baaod upon an expenditure limited to the appropriations
then authorised by law. Mince that tune the demands upon tho
treasury for tbe present Ureal year have been increased by legislation
lo an amount not fur below ton millions of dollars. Another lrn|>ortnut
element of that estimate was the probable receipts from customs
ami other sources during the then throe roinululng quarters of tho
Ureal year.
The actual receipts for that period, it Is now believed, will fall ten
millions below that estimate; attributable to the fact that the trade
and business of the country have not recovered as rapidly from I ho
cifecta of the late revulsion us was then anticipated.
Owtag lo these causes, the twenty millions loan of treasury notes
anthorttsd by the act ofTlerember 28, 1857, will be exhausted In nip
plying the deficiencies In tho treasury for the present Ureal year.
Wo shall commence the ucxl U'oal year de|>cndent entirely upon the
Ourretit veeeipts Into tho treasury to meet all demutuls from It.
In reply to a call upon the heads of the different departments, 1
have received olUclal Information that the sum of $37,000,000 will be
probably railed for during the first two quarters or the next Ureal
year. Tills sum dues not include rm li amounts ss may be appropriated
by Congress over and hIiovo the estimates submitted lo them l,y
the departments, and 1 have no data upon which to estimate lor rucli
expenditures. Upon this point Congress Is batter able to form a cor
root opiuion iiiuu i am.
To meet then? expenditure*, it is uoi prudent to rely upon roonipte
iuui the treasury, ?Btimatod upon the too rApid revival of trade ami
hurtinemi. I believe that wo inay safely calculate uj?o?? receipt?, du
ring that period, from all aourcea, of $25,000,000. Looking t<> ihta
stale of things, 1 recommend that authority he given to tbi* department
to supply any deficiencies that may arise in meeting the domauds
upon the tn^asury by an additional loan not exceeding flftcqn
millions of dollars.
Iu view of tho amount of treasury notes already issued*! recommend
a loan for that amount, to ho negotiated lor u period, of not
more than ten years, at a rato of interest not exceeding six per
1 have confined thl? inquiry to the two first quarters of the next
fiscal year, as LougreHS will re assemble befiage the close of the see
oud quarter, and it will he time enough then,'should it become ueccg
sary, to provide for futuro contingencies that cannot now be foreBNB.
I do not recommend any measure for Increased taxation. It would
ho unwise at this time to attempt a modification of the Uriffnct of
March 3. 1857, for tho reAsous given in ray annual report to Congress
bufheient time has not elapsed to tost the effects of that act upon the
revenue, considering tho condition of tho couutry during the period of
its operation. In addition to this considered ton, neither tho receipts
nor tho expenditures of the government should ho estimated lor lu
tho future, upou tho basis of its present receipts ami expenditures.
The farmer have beeu, and still are, too seriously affected by tho late
rev ulsion, to justify a policy of legislation based upon a probable continuance
of this state of things for any considerable period of timo.
The latter have been so greatly increased by causes of a like tern
porary character as to preclude, with equal propriety, the policy of
considering them a? a hauls ftnr estimating future exjKmditures. Tho
most prominent of these temporary causes is tho Utah expedition,
which, it is hoped, will not reach beyond tho ?nd of the next fiscal
year. Ihiring the ported of an overflowing treasury, a system of ex
pendituro was inaugurated iu tho building of custom houses, jxwit
odices, court houses, and other public work#, which, fortunately for
the country, ha* been checked by the exhausted oodditiou of tho
treasury. Tho timo thus given for a more thorough and rigid in
qulry into the necessity and propriety of these expenditures, it is
confidently boltovud will lead to wise and salutary reforms. Retrenchment*
in other branches of the public service can, and 1 have
no doubt will, be effected. Attention should bo directed more to the
reduction of expenditures than to an increase of taxation, Pi remedy
the evils of nn excess of expenditures over the mouriM of tho govern
tneut. A fill! treasury Is an unpropitious clement in the work of
retrenchment and reform. If meaaurefl should he now adopted to
provide the treasury permanently with a sum equal to the present
demands upon it, it might relieve the government from some of its
embarrassments, Imt would greatly weakeu tho effort to restrain the
government to nn economlcat expenditure of the public, money.
The revival <?f business, which cannot be much longer delayed, will,
I am cotifiduut, lusurufrom the present tarifl a sufficient revenue for
the support of tho government in ordinary times.
Kxti nordinary expenses rendered necessary by causes equally ex
tTaordinary, always being of a temporary character, should beprovid
ed lor in a like temporary manner.
This principle is too plain to requir? Argument or illustration ; it is
only necessary to call attention to It lb command the approval of
every intelligent mind.
I am, very respectfully,
Secretary of tho Treasury.

I have also prepared another table showing the estimated
receipts and expenditures from the first of July,
1858, to the 31st December, 1858, and also one for the
four quarters of the tixcal year ending 31st June,
1858. It is understood that the loan asked for now, together
with the estimated receipts, is to cover the expenses
of the first two quarters of the next fiscal yoar,
commencing July 1st. In consequence of the unsettled
state of trade we have no reliable basis upon which to
make the estimate, but we con approximate to the sum.
By the first of January next wo will have light enough
to know just how we stand, and then will lie the timo to
ruisc our tariff and everything connected witli it, according
to the exigencies of the times and the indications of
the future.
The appropriations made at the present session of Congress
will amount to prol>ably $08,000,000. Of this, howaver,
but $58,000,000 will be required for the fiscal year
1850, the residue being incident to the fiscal year 1858.
This nine millions and unwards for dcliciencv of 1858
is no part of the ordinary expenses of the government.
We can come back in time to the ordinary standard
without any great difficulty by retrenchment and reform.
That retrenchment und reform only begun at this session
of Congress cannot be effective. It must be determined
on at the next session of Congress by legislation. There
is no man in the country so wanting in iutelligenee as
not to know that under the system of enormous land
grunts for railroad purposes, and under the system of
squandering the public money in building custom-house
monuments all over the country, inaugurated under a
plethoric treasury, we can never reduce the expenditures of
the government. Wo have now gono on from something
like $50,000,01)0 a year to hii expenditure of $70,000,000
or $80,000,000, not overtwo thirds of which is legitimately
cxi>euded for the purpose simply of conducting
the government. I bolievo it is in the power of the
democratic party?and it will lie responsible for it to I
bring us 'rack to a proper condition of economical expenditure
; but to enable us to do this we must tirst pay off
the legacy entailed upon us of old debts incurred by this
system of unwise legislation, and begin our reform by
discontinuing the practice. Our foreign relations now require
an expansion in only one direction?the increase
of our navy. That is a legitimate exercise of the powers
of government, and necessary to maintain our proper position
in the laiuily of nations. When the government,
has ceased to build custom houses and to multiply
them nil over the land, and ceased also to convert
every depot in the country into ports of delivery ;
when the Capitol extension is completed, which may
be in a year, and tho other public buildings, Patent
Office, Post Office Extension, Treasury, tlie Aqueduct,
and when all these incidental expenses are got rid of, it
will bo within the power of the democratic jiarty, under
the counsels of our present President, to bring down the expenses
of the government to $55,000,000 a year. 1 hope to
see this realized in 1860. 1 am in favor of this reduction. It
is utterly impossible for any party in power to bring about
this reform at once. 'Die great point to be aimed at is not I
to exhibit a parsimonious economy in repudiating our past
debts, no matter how recklessly contracted, nor in cluing-.
ing laws in appropriation bills; it. must tie done deliberately
and systematically. It is not to lie done by ls-ginning at
the I180I of the session to exhibit a spirit of wonderful
reform in scaling the public debt; but you must begin nt
tho beginning. Let the democratic party, which cortainly
holds power in this House one session more, |
(and if it will not go for reform, it does not deserve to lain
power any longer, and holds tire Executive and Senate
for several years to coiuu,) commence at the beginning of the
session, and we will euro this evil. It will not do to
exhibit a wonderful display of economy just one or two
days before the adjournment of tho session in flllihusteriug
on appropriation hills. 1 have to say, with all due
deference to my friends on both sides of tho House, that
the country understands exactly what that is worth.
Much capital is not made by it by any |iarties.
Mr. LOVEJOY. Will the gentleman from Pennsylvania
let me say a word hero '
Mr. J. GIiANLY JONES. I cannot yield now, as my
time is short.
Mr. LOVKJOY. Then I hope the gentleman does not
charge us with ffllihtistering.
Mr. J. GLANOY .IONICS. I have seen a good deal of
it on Ixith sides of the House, ami not a little this
morning in tlio war speech of my friend from Massachusetts,
[Mr. Bitrmnoamf.. |
Mr. LOVKJ0Y. Yon have not seen it. on this aide of
the House on any single appropriation hill.
Mr. J. (iLANOY JONICS 1 have heard within the
last half hour a most tremendous demonstration of what
] rail filibustering a war speech on the loan hill,
while I know that the gentleman who made it will not
go for paying expenses. 'ITiere Is not a constituency o'f
live men on that side of the House who would support a
war measure before the couutry, or votq money to pay
for it, if I were to bring in a hill to-morrow asking for
the money, and men to use it. I do not blame them fruit.
Experience lias taught us that the best way to got
along is to insist upon our rights at all haaards, and to
ask for nothing but what is right. A war speech in time
of pence is very safe, and naturally, like froth, works itself
off. I will hold myself ready to vote for war,, and to
vote for supplies to maintain It, whenever I think the
honor of the country is availed or touched.

and you do not increase the ex[>ensen i>y legislation at mis
session, either in appropriation bills or bv the passage of
private bills requiring money, there will be a little over |
two millions of dollars in the treasury on flic 1st of January
next. Experience has taught us, however, especial launder
our present mint system, that we ought at all times
to have a balance of $5,000,000 on hand in the treasury
in order to work the machinery of the treasury depart
meat. Wo shall, therefore, be short $8,000,000 of a good
working bulanoe ; but it will be safe for months to r<a?t it.
I propose that the House pass this bill iu Its prescut shape,
providing for a not exceeding six percent, loan of Sl.r>.000,000
for fifteen years, and send it to the Senate, By
the time tho Senate takes action upon it it will be able to
figure up the exact amount of the appropriations 11ml '
have been made, and if it shall be needed the Senate can
increase it, and I shall ask the House to concur in such
increase us they may propose on this basis. I have submitted
these remarks hastily, and may modify them some- *
what hereafter, in order to enforce and explain more fully '
the positions taken.
