The National Finances. REPORT OF THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT. The voluminous report of Secretary Chase of the Treasury Department, is twice as long as the President’s message, and would fill two solid pages of our paper. Of course its publi cation will not be expected in onr columns.— Below we give a condensation of this elabor ate report, embracing the important points of Its estimates, its plans of revenue, and its views upon the financial condition of the country. THE PUBLIC DEBT. The amount of the pubfic debt on the 30th of June, 1862, was $514,211,371 92. It is esti mated that on the 1st of July, 1863, the public debt will be increased to $1,122,297,403 24; and on the supposition that the war may continue with undiminUUed disbursements until the 1st of July, 1864, the debt likely to have been then incurred must be estimated at $1,744,885,586 80. The average rate of interest for the whole loan thus far incurred is four and three-fifths per cent. RECEIPTS AND EXPENDITURES. The aggregate receipts for the fiscal year 1862 (from July 1,1861, to June 30,1862) were $583385,247 03; the aggregate expenditures, $570,841,700 25. The receipts for the first quar ter of the fiscal year 1863 were $180.495345 60. The estimated receipt* for the remaining three quarters will Increase this amount to $511,046, 259 96. The actual and estimated expendi tures for the year (from July 1,1862, to June 80,1863) are stated as follows: For the civil service, $32,811.543 23 For the interior department, 5,982,906 43 For the war department, 747.359,828 98 For the navy department, 82,177.510 77 For interest on public debt, 25,340,321 38 Total, $893346,321 48 The estimated receipts for the fiscal year 1864 are $223,625,000 00. The estimated ex penditures, provided the war continues, are $1,095,413,183 56. Though the continuance of the war is very properly assumed as the basis of estimates intended to cover all contingencies, yet the Secretary expresses the confident hope that it is a contingency destined never to be realized. TREASURY NOTES, STAMPS AND CERTIFI CATES. The Secretary justifies at length the finan cial system of the Government, in the issue of treasury notes and postal currency. Of the former, Congress at different times authorized the issue of $150,000,000, to meet the daily in creasing demands on the Treasury-, and subse quently the issue of a second $150,000,000, of which $50,000,000 were to be reserved till ac tually required for the payment of deposits.— The use of postage and revenue stamps was also authorized as currency—this expedient being preferable to the issue of metallic tokens reduced in value below the existing standards. These measures have all worked well—more than fulfilling the anticipations of the depart ment. Congress further authorized the issue of national bonds to the amount of $500,000, 000, into which the United States notes Issued might be converted at the will of the holder. It was provided that these bouds should carry an interest of six per cent in specie, ami lie redeemable after live and payable in twenty years. IS THERE AN EXCESS OF CURRENCY? The secretary does not concur in the opin ion that the segregate currency of the coun try, composed of the United States notes and the notes of corporations, is at this moment greatly in excess of legitimate demands for its employment. Much less does he concur in an other opiuiou, not unfrequently expressed, that any actual excess is due to the issues of the United States notes already in circulation. It is true that gold commands a premium in notes. But it is also true that on the suspension of specie payments and the substitution for coin of United States notes, convertible into six per cent, specie bonds as the legal stand ard of value, gold became an article of mer chandise, subject to the ordiuary fluctuations of supply aud demand, aud to the extraordi nary fluctuations of mere speculation. That the consequent rise in the marketable value of gold is not due wholly or mainly to the in crease of the currency, is evident from the facts, (1) That the whole quantity of circula tion did not at the time exceed the legitimate demands of payment. (2) The whole, or nearly the whole, increase in the volume of the currency which has taken place, was, it is believed, legitimately demanded by llie changed condition of the country in the year between the two dates. (3) That on the 15th day of October, when the actual circulation, national and corporate, was about $330,000, 000, the premium on gold was 37 5-8; where as, on the 29th day of November, w-hen the circulation had increased by more than millions, the premium on gold was 29 to 30 percent. But if the fact of considerable re dundancy in circulation be conceded, it by no means follows that it is the circulation of the United States notes which is redundant, anil upon this point the secretary concludes that it 1* the part of wisdom and duty to support the United States circulation, and reduce the bank note circulation. uniformity of circulation. He still adheres, however, to his opinion be fore expressed, that a circulation furnished by the government, hut issued by hanking asso ciations, organized under a general act of con gress, is to be preferred to either. The central idea of the proposed measure is the establish ment of one sound, uniform circulation, of equal value throughout the country, upon the foundation ol national credit combined with private capital. These associations would be entirely voluntary, aud every dollar of circu lation would represent real Capital, actually in vested in national stocks, and the total amount issued could always be pasily and quickly as certained from the books of the treasury. The plan is recommended by various reasons, but chiefly by the firm anchorage it will sup ply to the Union of the states. Every individ ual who holds a dollar of the circulation se cured by such deposit; every merchant, every farmer, every mechanic, interested in transac tions dependent for success on the credit of that circulation, will feel as an injury every attempt to rend the national unitv, with the permanence and stability of which all their interests are so closely and vitally connected. Had the system been possible, and had it ac tually existed two years ago, can it be doubted that the national interests and sentiments en listed by it for the Union would have so strengthened the motives for adhesion derived from other sources, that the wild treason of secession would have been impossible? GOLD AND SILVER A PERMANENT BA9I9. | The secretary recommends, therefore, no I mere paper money scheme, but, on the contra ry. a series of measures looking to a safe and gradual return to gold and silver as the only permanent basis, standard, and measure of values recognized by the constitution — be tween which and an irredeemable pa|ier cur rency, as he believes, the choice is now to be made. No country possesses the true ele ments of a higher credit—uo country, in ordi nary times, can maintain a higher standard of payment and currency than the United States. The government is less costly tlian that of most other great powers. The expenditures of the current fiscal year, excluding those of the war and navy departments, can hardly equal those jif the last year, w hich amounted to $24,511.47d 0fi. Estimating those of these departments at double theexjienditurcs of the la«t year before the rebellion, they would lor the current year, had the war ended before last midsummer, as was anticipated at the date of the last report, amount to the sum of $55, 845,834 48. The interest ou the public debt is for the current year estimated at $25,041,532. 07, and will probably go over that sum. The whole expenditures ol the government for the current year, on the supposition of peace, would, therefore, not exceed *105,371.843 21. This aggregate must be increased hereafter by the addition of the interest on the loans of the current and future years, and by pensions, the precise amount of which cannot be foreseen. Estimate the former at fifty, and the latter at I ten millions a year, and the total annual ex penditures in peace will reach, omitting frac tions, to $105,000,000. The expenditures or (Jreat Britain during the year ending March 31. 1802. were *3t$4.43fi.rt821 those iit fi’ptini’n | for 18(12, according to French official esti mates, will reach $421523,980; ami the annu al expenses of Russia, according to the best accessible information, do not full short of $230,000,000. To meet our atiuual expendi tures, and to ensure lieyond contingency the punctual discharge of the interest of the pub lic debt, and the creation of a sinking fund for its reduction. Congress has provided a rev enue from customs even now reaching nearly seventy millions a year, and a revenue from internal duties which will not probably full short of one hundred aud fifty millions a’year. Without reckoning any other resources than those already provided, tile revenue, therefore, will annually exceed the expenditures by tlf j ty-flve millions, which sum may he used for the reduction of the public debt. If, then, the war shall be continued, contrary to hope and expectation, to midsummer of 18(14, and the public debt shall reach the utmost limit now anticipated, of seventeen hundred and Hfty millions of dollars, the excess of revenue will reduce that debt, during the first year of peace more than three per cent. RESOURCES OF THE COUXTRT. But tlie American republic possesses im mense resources which have not yet been call ed into contribution. The gold-hearing region of the United States stretches through near 18 degrees of latitude, from British Columbia on the north to Mexico on the south, and through more thau twenty degrees of longitude, from the eastern declivities of the Rocky mountains to the Pacific ocean. It includes 'two states, California and Oregon; four entire territories, Utah, Nevada, New Mexico ami Washington; and parts of three other territories, Colorado, Nebraska and Dakota. It forms an area of more Hum a million of square miles, the whole of which, with comparatively insignificant ex ceptions, is the property of the nation. It is rich, not only in gold, hut in silver, copper iron, lead, aud many other valuable minerals.’ Its product of gold and stiver during the cur rent year will not much, if at all, probably fall short of one hundred million dollars; ami it must long continue gradually, yet rapidly, to increase. If this product bo subjected to a reasonable seignorage, as suggested by some, or tl, as suggested by others, Hie mineral lands he subdivided and sold in convenient parcels, with proper reservations in favor of the miners now in occupation of particular localities, a very considerable revenue may lie derived from this region without hardships to the actual settlers aud occupiers. And there are other miners than those of gold or silver, or copper or iron, in the wide territory which in cludes the public lands of the United States. Every acre of the fertile soil is a mine which only waits for the contact of labor to yield its treasures: and every acre is ojien to the fruit ful contact by the homestead act. When the opportunities thus offered to industry shall he understood by the working millions of Europe, it cannot be doubted that great numbers w ill seek American homes, in order to avail them selves of the great advantage tendered to their acceptance by American law. Every working man who conics betters the condition ol the nation aN well as his own. 11c adds in many ways, seen and unseen, to its wealth, its intel mate the contribution which immigration, properly encouraged by legislation anil admin istration, will make to revenue; but directly and indirectly, it cannot be reckoned as less than that which may be expected front the metallic products of the gold-bearing region. With siicli resources at the disposal of the re public, no one need be alarmed lest the United States may become unable to pay the interest on its debt, or to reduce the principal to what ever point the public interest may indicate. The republic is passing through the pangs of a new birth to a uobler aud higher life. Twice already she lias paid oil' a national debt con tracted for the defence of her rights; the obligations of that which she now incurs for tlte preservation of her existence will be not less sacredly fulfilled. SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS. The general views of the Secretary* may therefore be thus briefly summed: He recommends that whatever amounts may be needed, beyond the sums supplied by revenue and through other indicated modes, be obtained by loans, without increasing the issue of United States notes beyond the amount fixed by law, unless a clear public ex igency shall demand it. He recommends, al so, the organization of hanking associations for tlte improvement of the public credit and for the supply to the people of a safe aud uni form currency. And he recommends no change in the laws providing for the negotia tion of bonds, except the necessary increase of amount, and the repeal of the absolute restric tion to market value, and of the clauses au thorizing convertibility at will. If Congress shall concur in these views, the Secretary, though conscious of the great diffi culties which vast, sudden, and protracted ex penditures impose upon him, ventures to hope that he may still be able to maintain the pub lic credit and provide for the public wants. An assay office or branch mint is recom mended in Nevada territory. A change in weights, measures, and coins is recommended, and the report suggests that the present demonetization of gold may well be availed of for the purpose of taking one considerable step towards these great ends.— If the half eagle of the Union be made of equal weight aud fineness witli tlte gold sove reign of Great Britain, no sensible injury could possibly arise from the change; while, on tlte resumption of specie ^lymetits, its great advantages would be felt in the equalization of exchanges and the convenience of com merce. The operations of the Coast Survey, the course of trade with the insurgent States, and the management of contrabands on planta tions, are referred to. An assistant collector is recommended in New York.S.The purchase of the Exchange is advised. The demand for postage currency will soon I be met. The Secretary has contracted for pa ! per, and has authorized the preparation of 1 small notes as substitutes for revenue stamps, substantially like the small notes now substi ! tuted for postage stamps, and indulges the hope ] that results will commend his action to the ap proval of Congress, and that the necessary modification of the provisions relating to stamps and engravings, will receive its sanc tion. The Secretary refers to the labors of his sub ordinates, and says that a larger clerical force is demanded. He suggests that authority be given him to appoint commissioners to exam ine and audit the claims of the several States now referred to that office for settlement. The bureau of internal revenue has been organized under the act of last session, and is now actively engaged in the labors assigned to it. Collectors and assessors have been ap pointed in all the. districts of the loyal and the revenue from the duties imposed By the law, is steadily and rapidly increasing. MISCELLANEOUS.

Manufactured by the Barstow Stove Company, Whose Castings stand unrivalled throughout New 1 England.
