REPORTS OF T H E

I I I . OF THE ESTIMATE OF THE PUBLIC REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE FOR

. THE YEAR 1824.

It will be perceived that the actual receipts of the year 1823.agree,. substantially, with the estimate presented in the last annual report. The oiily
deficiencyisln the proceeds ofthe public lands; and that is understood
to have been the consequence of an expectation, generally entertained, that
the.lands which were relinquished urider the act of the 2d of March, 1821,
and which are supposed to present the strongest inducements to purc^hasers,
would be brought into market early in the ensuing year. With respect to
the customs, however, the anticipations that had been.formed, both as to
the circumstances which, were calculated to have an influence upon their
productiveness, and as to the results, hava been completely realized. . It Is
believed, therefore, that data, founded upon the same principles as those
Avhich governed in forming the estimate for the year 1823, may be satisfactorily presented as the basis of an estimate for. the year 1824.
With this yiew, the Secretary has the honor to state—
1st. That the gross amount of duties, on imports and tonnage, which accrued from the 1st January to the 30th September last, inclusive, is estimated at $17,800,000; and that of the whole year, at $21,000,000. Of this
sum, that portion which accrued in the first half of the' year is about
$1,000,000 less than.that of the same period in the preceding year; and
that which accrued in, the first three quarters of the year is estimated at
$1,700,000 less than that of the corresponding quarters of the preceding
year.
'
;
2d. That the debentures issued during the first three quarters of the year
1823 amounted, to $3,412,000; which exceeds the amount issued during
the corresponding'period of the year 1822 by $1,500,000: and the amount;
of debentures outstanding onthe 30th of September last, aiid chargeable
upon the revenue of 1824, was $1^405,000;, which is $500,000 more than
was, on the same day in 1822, chargeable upon the revenue of 1823.^
3d. That the value of domestic articles exported from the United States,
in the year ending on the 30th September last, amounted to $47,155,711;
being'$2,718,368 less than those exported in the year preceding: and the
value of foreign articles exported ih the year ending on the 30th of September last was $27,530,469; being $5,244,267 more than those exported in
the preceding year.
>
.
i
4th. That'the aggregate value of the imports into the United States, during theyear ending on the 30th September last, is estimated at $77,486,432,:
which is less, by $5,755,109, than those imported in the preceding year.
5th. That theamoiint of custom-house bonds in suit,, which on the 30th
September, 1820, was $3,130,000, was, on the same day in "the year 1822,
$2,795,000; and in the year 1823, $2,817,000: whence it appears, that,
although a reduction of $313,000 had taken place during the whole period,
yet the amount in suit on the 30th September last was greater, by $22,000,
than on the saine day of the year preceding. ^
Upon a consideration of all these facts, and the conclusions deducible from
them, the receipts from the customs in the year 1824 may be estimated at
$16,500,000.
.
A considerable portion of th,e lands relinquished under the act of 2d'
March, 1821, will be brought into market in the ensuing year; but^as it is yet
uncertain to what extent this may be deemed advisable, ;and as the salO of
these lands will probably absorb a great portion ofthe means of those who

are prepared to make investiiierits in the public lands, it is considered prudent not to estimate-the receipts from this source of revenue at more than
1,600,000 dollars, although itis believed that they will exceed that sum.
. Under these circumstances, the receipts of the year 1824 may be esli•mated as: follows:
Customs. - . , -^$16,500,000
Public lands
.- 1,600,00^

satisfying the current demands of the year 1824, a balance
estimated at - ^
" •-• '
- ' - • 9,792,716 41
Under the existing laws, there is nO probability that ariy portion of the
balance remaining in the Treasury on the 1st vjanuary, 1824, or'of the surplus which may accrue during that year, can be applied to the discharge of thie
public debt^ until the 1st of January, 1825: yet it is not deemed conducive
to the general prosperity of the nation that so large an amount should be
drawn from the hands of individuals; and suffered' to lie inactive in the
Vaults of the banks. On the other hand, the high rate of interest of the great
amount of ^debt which becomes redeemable on the 1st of January, 1825,
renders it inexpedient for the Government to apply to Other objects any por-.
tion of the means which it may possess of making so advantageous a reimbursement. It is believed, howeyer, that every inconvenience may be obviated, if authority be given for the purchase of the seven per cent, stock,
amounting to 8,610,000 dollars during the year 1824, at such rates as may
be (consistent with the public interest. As it is now certain thatthe Governinent will possess ample means to redeem that stock on the 1st of January,

[1823.'

1825,^ i t i s presumed that the. holders will be willing to dispose'of it,
during the interval, at a fair price; and as a gradual conversion of it into
money, at such times and in such portions as would.be most favorable to its
reinvestment, would be most advantageous to the moneyed transactions of the
community, itis presumed that it would be most acceptable to the holders.
It is therefore respectfully proposed, that the commissioners of :the sinking fund be authorized to purchase the seven per cent., stock, during the
ensuing year, at the following rates above the principal sum purchased: ^
1st; For all stock purchased before the 1st. of April next, at a rate not
exceeding' $1 25 on every 100 dollars, in addition to the interest due o n '
such Stockton that day.
2d. Fdr all stock purchased between the 1st of April.and 1st of .July
next, at a rate not exceeding 75 cents on every 100 dollars, in addition to
the interest due on the last mentioned day.
3d. For aU stock purchased between the 1st of July and 1st of October
next, at a rate not exceeding, on every 100 dollars, the amount of the interest
which, would have, accrued oh the last mentioned day.
4th. For all.stock purchased between the 1st October, 1824, and 1st January,'1825, the principal and interest due on the day of purchase.
In proposing to the consideration Of Congress this application of the surplus means of the years 1823 and 1824, the probable demands upon the
Goyernment in providing for the awards of the commissioners under the
treaty with Spain, of the 22d February, 1819, have not been overlooked.
It is believed, however, that funds may be advantageously supplied for the
discharge of those claim.s, by thelssue^and sale, at notless than par, of five
per cent, stock, redeemable in 1832; and itis respectfully proposed that authority be given for that purpose.
Ofthe 10,331,000 doUars of six per cent, stock, redeemable in 1825,
about five mihioiis will probably be redeemed in that year; and there will
remain unredeemed, after the apphcation of all. the means at the disposal of
the commissioners of the sinking fund, about J5,331,000. This sum, it is
believed, may'be readily exchanged for five per cent, stock, redeemable in
1;833; and it is respectfully suggested that provision be made by law for such
an exchange of so, much of the six per cent, stock as shall not be redeemed
during the year 1825.^
.
.
' . , ,
The views which are herein presented are founded upon the idea, that no
extraordinary expenditure is to be incurred. If,'however,it be deemed advisable to give increased extension or activity to the navy, or to aid in objects of internal improvement, it is believed that such aclditional means as
may be required' may be obtained by a judicious revisioii ofthe tariff.
Such a measure was recommended in the last annual i:eport,-with a view
both to the increase of the revenue and the simplification of its (collection ;
and further reflection and experiehce have tended to strengthen the opinion
then entertained, that its operatioh, without being onerous to the,commu nity,
would be advantag;eous to the revenue, salutary to commerce, and beneficial
to the manufactures of the country.
