REPORTS OF' T H E 488 REPORT ON T H E FINANCES. JUNE, 1813. In obedience to the act supplementary to the act entitled " An act fo establish the Treasury Department/' the Acting Secretary of the Treasury respectfully submits the following report: T h e receipts into the Treasury from the 1st of October, 1812, to the 31st March, 1813, have amounted to - $15,412,116 25 'l*he balance in the Treasury, on the 30th September, 1812, was 2,362,652 69 Making together . . . . . §17,775,068 94 The expenditures, from the 1st October, 1S12, to the 31st March, 1813, have amounted to $15,919,334 41 1/eaving a balance in the Treasury, on the 1st of April, 1813, of . . 1,855,734 53 $17,775,068 94 The enclosed statement (A shows, in detail, the several sources from which the receipts were derived, and the branches of expenditure to which the disbursements from the Treasury were applied. Pursuant to the act of 8th February last, subscriptions for a loan of sixteen millions of dollars were opened on the 12th, and again on the 25th of March last. But, although a thirteen years' annuity of one per cent, was offered, in addition to a six per cent, stock at par, for the money which might be subscribed, it being apparent, from the result of the first subscription, that the whole amount could not be obtained on those terms, proposals in writing were invited. Offers, exceeding by about a million of dollars the amount wanted, were received, some demanding a thirteen years' annuity of one and a half per cent., in addition to six per cent, stock at par, but most of them requiring a six per c e n t stock, at the rate of 88 per cent. On these terms, leaving to the subscribers the option, the loan was effected In conformity with the public notification, the same terms w e r e extended to those persons who had subscribed on the first opening of the subscription, and they have the same option ; which, if the stock at the rate of 88 per cent, be taken, is equivalent precisely to a premium of thirteen dollars sixty-three cents and seven elevenths of a cent, for each hundred dollars loaned to the Government T h e enclosed papers, under the letter B, are copies of the several public notices given on the subject, and a statement of the monevs respectively obtained by open subscriptions, and by written proposals, and showing, a k j the sums obtained and payablein each place where subscriptions w e r e o p e n e d .

' g439 $1,086,737 50, which makes a part of the moneys received previously to that day, as stated in thc statement A. T h e resources for the residue of the year 1813 consist of the following 5 items, v i z : 1. l he remainder of the loan above mentioned - $14,913,262 50 2. The sums payable on account of customs, and of the sales of public lands, estimated at 9,320,000 00 3. T h e five millions of dollars in Treasury notes, authorized by thc act of February 25th, 1813 5,000,000 00 Say - _$29,230^000 00 The expenses for the last nine months of the present year are calculated as followeth, viz: 1. Civil list, and all expenses of a civil nature, both foreign and domestic . . . . . $900,000 00 Payments on account of the principal and interest of the public debt, as per estimate C, herewith - 10,510,000 00 3. Expenses on account of the War and Navy Departments 17,820,000 00 $29,230,000 00 Of the sum of £1,855,731 53, remaining in the Treasury on the lst of April last, a small part may be considered as applicable to such extraordinary expenses, already authorized, as may arise during the remainder of the year; and for the same object, the sum of 1.000,000 of dollars, authorized by an act of thc State of Pennsylvania to be loaned to the United States, but which was not offered in time to be accepted as a part of the loan of sixteen millions, may be considered as a resource. In this estimate, the whole sum of five millions of dollars, authorized to be issued in Treasury notes, is taken as a part of the resources of the present year. But, as it is not deemed eligible to increase the amount of Treasury notes in circulation, and as three millions only of those authorized by the act of 1812 were issued in that year, and are reimbursable in the course of the present year, it is respectfully suggested that, in lieu of issuing two millions of the five millions authorized by the act of February, 1813, Congress should authorize an additional loan for the same amount; it being made a condition of such loan, that its terms should not be higher than those of the loan of sixteen millions, already effected. T h e provision already considered is for the service of the present year °nly ; that which will be necessary for the year 1814, requires an early attention. It is difficult to estimate, with accuracy, the sum which will be received into the Treasury from the revenue as now established. During a state of war, the customs, at the present rate of duties, have been heretofore estimated to produce five millions of dollars. T h e additional tonnage duty, imposed upon foreign vessels, by the act of lst July, 1812, producing about 200,000 dollars a year, is not included in that sum. It is believed that, during the year 1814, a greater sum than five million two hundred thousand dollars ought not to be relied upon, as receivable into the Treasury from custom-house duties. T h e sum arising from sales of public lands may be estimated at six hundred thousand dollars, making together 5,800,000 dollars. T h e interest alone, on the public funded debt, on temporary loans, and on the Treasury notes, which will become payable 490 REPORTS OF' T H E [1813. in that year, will amount to four million four hundred thousand dollars. The other engagements, on account of the principal of the funded debt, of temporary loans, and of Treasury notes, which will become reimbursable in that year, amount to 7,150,0t)0 dollars ; exceeding, together, by more than five million seven hundred thousand dollars, the estimated amount of the receipts into the Treasury, derived from the revenue as now established. This view of the subject is sufficient to evince the necessity of a speedy and effectual provision for the service of that and the ensuing years. The mode and the extent to which this provision should be carried have been heretofore suggested from this department to (Congress, and have received the consideration of that body. The expenses of the peace establishment of the United States, and the interest on the public debt, including that on the loans made for the prosecution of the war. arc believed to be the least sums that ought, under any circumstances, to be raised within each year. These, if the expenses of the peace establishment are taken at the sum necessary for the ordinary expenditure of the United States, previously to the additional armaments mode in the year 1812, with a view to an approaching state of war, and including the interest on the loans of the year 1812^13; and also of that which will probably be necessary in the year 1811, will amount, during that year, to eleven million four hundred thousand dollars, viz : The expense of the peace establishment, exclusive of the additional force authorized by the acts passed dnring the year 1812, may be estimated £7.<WU,uw nt — The interest on the public debt, during the year 1814, will be as follows: On old funded debt . . . . $2,100,000 On 6 per cent, stock of 1812, including temporary loans, received in part of the loan of eleven millions, which will remain unpaid in 1814 500,000 On 6 per cent, stock of 1813 - 1.090.000 On Treasury notes, which will be reimbursable in 270,000 1814, say on 5,000,00# dollars, at 5» per cent. 3,960,000 On the loan for the year 1814, interest payable 440,000 within that year IOMOOJOOO The revenue, as now established, being estimated to produce Would leave to be raised - $5,800,000 5,600,000 T o cover the above sum of * The internal taxes heretofore proposed were estimated to produce And the duty of 20 cents a bushel on salt imported, which, though estimated heretofore at only 400,000 dollars a year, during a state of war, yet, as the consumption considerably exceeds 2,000,000 of bushels, may be estimated to produce Making the sum wanted - - $5,000,000 600,000 S5,600^ 1813.) SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY. 491 Although the taxes, if early laid, may be brought into operation in the commencement of the year 1814, yet, as they cannot be expected to have their full effect during that year, some auxiliary resource will be required. This may tie found in the sum of 1 , 5 0 0 , 0 0 0 dollars, which is the excess of the sinking fund for the present year, over the demands on that fund, according to the existing engagements of the United States. This sum of 1 , 5 0 0 , 0 0 0 dollars may be carricd to the sinking fund for the year 1 8 1 4 , and will be wanted, in addition to the annual appropriation of 8,000,000 of dollars, to meet the engagements on account of the public debt which must be fulfilled during that year. As reliance must be had upon a loan for the war expenses of the year 1814, the laying of the internal taxes may be considered, with a view to that object, as essentially necessary: in the first place, to facilitate the obtaining of the Isan ; and. secondly, for procuring it on favorable terms. It is ascertained that the terms of the loan, for the present year, would have been more favorable if the taxes had been previously laid; and it is obvious enough that, by affording a security for the regular payment of the interest, and the eventual reimbursement of the principal, more stable, and less liable to be weakened or cut off by the natural effects of war upon external commerce, than a revenue depending, as that of the United States now does, almost wholly upon such external commerce, capitalists will advance with the greater readiness, and at a lower rate of interest, the funds neces^ sary for the prosecution of the war; public confidence will be insured, and the means afforded of preserving the public credit unimpaired: a measure of the utmost importance, in a country like ours, where, from the lightness of the demands made upon the people during the continuance of peace, the extraordinary expenses of a state of war can be supplied only by a resort to that credit. The resources of the country are ample; and if the means now proposed, and those heretofore recommended from this department, are adopted, it is believed they may be fairly and fully brought into action. All which is respectfully submitted. W. JONES Acting Secretary of the Treasury. T R E A S U R Y D E P A R T M E N T , Jane 2, 1 8 1 3 . 492 REPORTS OF' T H E [1813.

The accounts for the fourth quarter of the year 1813 have not yet been made up at the Treasury; hut the receipts and expenditures, during that quarter, have been nearly as follows: Receipts from the customs, sales of lands, and small branches of the revenue, about $3,300,000 00 Loan of sixteen millions ISS^SSi ™ Loan of seven and a half millions jMtMHJJ U O Treasury notes w 12,330,000 00 Making, with the balance in the Treasury on the 1st of October, 1813, of An aggregate of about ; The disbursements have been, for civil, diplomatic, and miscellaneous expenses, about Military department Naval department Public debt, (of which near $6,000,000 was on account of the reimbursement of principal) • And leaving in the Treasury, on the 31st Dec. 1813, about 6,978,<52 43 $19,309,000 00 $400,000 00 6,887,747 00 1,249,145 10 7,087,994 96 4,685,112 95 $19,3^9,000 00 Of the sums obtained on loan during the year 1813, and included in the receipts above stated, an account of the terms on which they were nude has been laid before Congress, excepting as to the Treasury notes issued under the act of February 25, 1813, and the loan of seven and a half millions obtained under the authority contained in the act of the 2d of August, 1813. The annexed statement, marked F, will show the whole amount received for Treasury notes during the year 1813, and at what places they were sold or disposed of. Three million eight hundred and sixty-five thousand one hundred dollars, of the notes issued under the act of June 30th, 1812, became due in the course of the year 1813, or in the present month of January, and have been paid off, or the funds placed in the hands of the commissioners of loans for that purpose. The papers under the letter O will show the measures taken under the . act of August 2d, 1813, authorizing a loan of seven million five hundred thousand dollars, and the manner in which that loan was obtained. 'I he terms were eighty-eight dollars and twenty five cents in money for one hundred dollars in stock, bearing an interest of six per cent; which if equivalent to a premium of thirteen dollars thirty-one cents and four-ninths ofa cent on each hundred dollars in money loaned to the United States. W this sum of 7,500,000 dollars, about 3,850,000 dollars was paid into the Treasury during the year 1813, and the remainder is payable in tne months of January and February, 1814. For the year 1814, the expenditures, as now authorized by law, are e timated as follows: * -nnflflft 1. Civil, diplomatic, and miscellaneous expenses 2. Public debt, viz: ' : Interest on the debt existing previous to the war $2,100,000 1S14.J SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.'g 501 Interest on debt contracted since the war, including Treasury notes, and loan for the year 1814 $2,950,000 p . , . . 5,050,000 f Keimbursement of principal, including the old six per cent, and deferred stocks, temporary loans, and Treasury notes . 7,150,000 3. Military establishment, estimated by the Secretary of >\ ar for a full complement (including rangers, sea fencibles, and troops of all descriptions) of 63,422 officers and men, and including ordnance, fortifications, and the Indian department, and the permanent appropriations for Indian treaties, and for arming and equipping the militia 4. iNavy, estimated forl5,7b7 officers, seamen, and boys, and for l,b69 marines, and including the service of two 74 gun ships for four months, and three additional frigates for six months of the year 1814, and the expenses of flotillas on the coast and on the lakes Amounting, altogether, to - $12,200,000 24,55 0 6,900,000 $45,350,000 The ways and means already provided by law are as follows: 1. Customs and sales of public lands. The nett revenue accruing from the customs during the year 1812 amounted, as will appear by the annexed statements A and B, to 13,112,000 dollars. Of this sum, about 4,300,000 dollars was produced by the additional duties imposed by the act of July 1, 1812. T h e duties which have accrued during the year 1813 are estimated at 7,000,000 dollars. The custom-house bonds outstanding on the lst January, 1814, after making a due allowance for insolvencies and bad debts, are estimated at 5,500,000 dollars; and it is believed that 6,000,000 dollars may be estimated for the receipt of the customs during the year IS 14. The sales of public lands, during the year ending September 30,1813, have amounted to 256,345 acres, and the payments by purchasers to 706,000 dollars, as will appear by the annexed statement C. It is estimated that 600,000 dollars will be received into the Treasury from this source, during the year 1814. The sum, therefore, estimated as receivable from customs and lauds, is . $6,600,000 2. Internal revenues "and direct tax. From the credits allowed by law on some of the internal duties, and from the delays incident to the assessment .and collection of the direct tax, it is not believed that more ought to be expected to come into the Treasury, during the year 1S14, than the sum of 3,500,000 3. Balance of the loan of seven and a half millions already contracted for 4. Balance of Treasury notes already authorized 1,0/0,01!U 5. Of the balance of cash in the Treasury, on the 31st December, 1813, amounting, as above stated, to about $4,680,000 There will be required to satisfy appropriations made prior to that day, and then undrawn, at least 3,500,000 502 [1813. REPORTS OF' T H E And leaving applicable to thc service of lhe year 1814 - $1,180,000 16,000.000 So that there remains to be provided, by loons, the sum of 29,350,000 $45,350,000 Although the interest paid upon Treasury notes is considerably less than that |>aid for the moneys obtained by the United States oil funded stock, yet thc certainty of iheir reimbursement at the end of one year, and the facilities they afford for remittances and other commercinl operations, have obtained for them a currency which leaves little reason to doubt ihnt they may be extended considerably beyond the sum of five millions of dollars, hitherto authorized to be annually issued. It will perhaps be eligible to leave to the Executive, as was done last year, a discretion as to the amount to be borrowed upon stock or upon Treasury notes, that one or thc other may be resorted to, within prescribed limits, as shall be found most advantageous to the United States. ** The amount estimated to have been reimbursed of thc principal of the public debt, during the year ending on the 30th September last, including Treasury notes and temporary loans, will appear, by the estimate marked D , to have been 3,201,368 dollars. As the payments on account of the loan of sixteen millions had not then beeu completed, and the stock had consequently not been issued therefor, it is not practicable to state wiih precision the amount added to the public debt during that year : but afler deducting the abovemeniioned reimbursement of 3,200,000 dollars, this addition will not fall short of 22,500,000 dollars. The plan of finance proposed at thc commencement of the war, was, to make the revenue during each year of its continuance equal to thc expenses of the peace establishment and of the interest on the old debt then existing and on the loans which the war nught render neccssary; and to defray the extraordinary expenses of the war but of the proceeds of loans to be obtained for that purpose. The expenses of the peace establishment, as it existed previous to the armaments of 1812, made in contemplation of war, but including the eign regiments added to the military establishment in the year 1808, and the augmentation of the navy in actual service, authorized in 1809, amounted; after deducting some casual expenses of militia and other incidental item* to about V . 87,000,000 The interest on the public debt payable during the year 1814, will be: On the old debt, or that existing prior to the present war 82,100,000 On the debt contractcd since the commencement of the war, including Treasury notes, and allowing 660,000 dollars for interest on the loan which must be made during the year 1814, (a sum as small as can be estimated for this object,) 2,950,000 - 5,050,000 Making . . - flWgg? 1S14.J SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.'g 503 T h e act ual receipts into the Treasury from the revenue, as now established, including the internal revenues and direct tax, are not estimated, for the year 1814, at more than $10,100 000 Viz: from customs and public lands - $6,600,000 Internal revenues and direct tax 3,500,000 10,100,000 If to this sum be added that part of the balance in the Treasury on the 31st December, 1813, which has been estimated above to be applicable to the expenses of the year 1814, and which, upon the princi above .stated, may be considered as a surplus of revenue beyond the expenses of the peace establishment, and ofthe interest on the public debt for the year 1813, and therefore applicable to the same expenses for the year 1814, which sum is estimated at - 1,180,000 And making together . . . . - 11,280,000 There will still remain to be provided new revenues capable of producing . . . . . . 770,000 $12,050,000 But as the internal revenues and direct tax, when in full operation, will produce, in the year 1S15, probably 1,200,000 dollars more than is estimated to be received from them in the year 1814, it will rest with Congress to decide whether it is necessary that new and additional revenues should now be established. To what extent the existing embargo may reduce the receipts into the 1 reasury from the customs during the year 1815, it is difficult to estimate, asfhe operation of the war had reduced the receipts from the customs nearly one half from that which was received during the year preceding the war. The former embargo reduced the revenue from the customs nearly onehalf the amount of that which was received during the year preceding its full operation. In this case, however, the transition was from the full receipt o f a peace revenue to the entire suspension of exportation and of foreign commerce in American bottoms. It is not, therefore, to be presumed that the existing embargo will cause a reduction of the war revenue in the proportion ofthe peace revenue: moreover, the effect ofthe act prohibiting the importation of certain artieles necessarily increases the demand and enhanees the value of those which may be lawfully imported; and the high price they bear will produce extraordinary importations, and in part compensate for the prohibition to export any thing in return ; to this may be added the duty on salt, the operation of which is yet but partial. T o the amount o f t h e defalcation o f t h e revenue caused by the embargo whatever it may be, must be added the difference between the amount of the interest payable in the year 1814 on the loan of that year, and the whole a m o u n t o f t h e interest on the said loan payable in the year 1815, as well as that part of the interest which may be payable in the year 1815 on the loan of that year. The sum of these items will be required 504 REPORTS OF' T H E [1813. for the year 1615, in addition to the revenues now established, except 430,000 dollars, being the difference between the estimate increase in the receipt of the internal revenues and direct taxes, and ihe 770,000 dollars remaining to be provided for in the foregoing estimate. Willi these considerations, it is submitted whether it may not be expedient and prudent to provide new revenues, capable of producing either the whole, or such part of the 770,000 dollars unprovided lor, as may appear necessary to fulfil the public engagements, and secure to the financial operations of the Government the confidence, stability, and success which is due to its fidelity and to the ample resources of the country. All which is respectfully submitted. >V. JONES, Acting Secretary of the Treasury. T R E A S U R Y D E P A R T M E N T , January 8 , 1 8 1 1 . A.
