I I I . OF THE -ESTIMATES OF THE PUBLIC REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE
FOR THE YEAR 1 8 2 0 .

• In.presenting the estimates for the year 1820,.it may be proper to observe,,
that w;heri the internal duties were repealed ori the 31st of December, 1817,
the permarient revenue, including those duties, was estimated at $24,525,000;
whilst the annual authorized expenditure was ascertained to be le~"ss than
$22,000,000. The repeal of the internal duties" reduced the former to
$22,025,000; .yhilst :the payments from the Treasury, during the"^ year
1818, exceeded $26,000,000, and those of .thepr-esent year will, probably,
fall but little short of $25,500,000.
. ^
Ih the anhual report ofthe Treasury'of the 21st of November, 1818, the
receipts for the present year were-estimated at $24,.220,000. - Although this
estimate will be realized in its general result, deficiencies have been.ascertained in the custornsj theinternal duties and direct tax, the bank dividends,
and the postage of letters. The.deficiency which has occurred in the cus-'
torris, internal duties and direct taxes, will prbbably augment, in. nearly the
same degree,-the receipts from those, sources in the year 1820, by the payment of the reveriue bonds, and of that portion of the internal duties.and, direct taxes, which, ri' the accustomed p.unetuality had been observed, would
ha.ve b'eeri received during the pfesent year.^ Butit is probable that the receipts .of that year-;vvill be diminished by the non-payment of bank dividends,
and by the -application of a portion of the proceeds of the public lands to the
rederaption of the"outstanding Mississippi stock. .The receipts for the year
1820, applicable to the ordinary and current demands upon the,Treasufy,
may therefore be estimated at . ,- o

The estimates of the expenditure for the year 1820 are not yet complete:
but it is .ascertained from those which have already been received, that a sum
not less than $27,0.00,000 will be required for the service of that year.
This deficit of nearly ,$5,000,000, resulting, from the excess of expenditure
beyond the receipts, cannot be supphed by.any application of the ordinary
revenue. After paying the interest and reinibursement of the public debt,
and redeeming the remainder of the Louisiana stock, about $2,500,000
ofthe sinking fund will remain without application, if the price of the
public stock should continue above the prices at which the commissioners




1819.]

•

SECRETARY OF T H E • TREASURY.

' 149

•of the sinking fund are authorized to purc^hase. .During the years 1821,
4822, and 1823, the average sum of $5,000,000 of the sinking,fund will
also remain without application, if Uhe price of the.public stock should
prevent its purchase.' Any application of that portion of the-sinking fund
which, on account of the price of the public stock, may remain unemployed
in the hands of the.commissioners of the sinking fund, to other branches
ofthe public service, if allowable urider the provisions of the act making
the .appropriation, would only postpone the period at which additional imfiositions -wquld be required to raeetthfe public expenditure. ^Such an.applicatidn would also havethe efiect of ultimately retarding "the redemption of the
public debt.
It may be proper to add, that, although some of the ;item's in the estimate
for the ensuing year may be considerecl in their nature temporary, yet it is
prbbabie that the estimate for succeeding years will exceed, rather than
fall below it.^
'
'
,.
',
"
' ,, '
Under-all the-circumstances,-it is.'respectfully submitted that the public
interest requires that.the revenue be augmented^ or that the expenditure be
diiiiinished.
. .
'
/ '
. -"
Should an increase-of the revenue be deeriied expedient, a portion bf^the
deficit may be siipplied by an addition to the duties now imposed.upon
various articles of foreign merchandise, and by a reasoriable duty upon sales
at public auction; but it is not probable that any modification pf the existing
tarifi* cau supersede the riecessity of resorting to internal taxation, if the expenditure is not diminished. Should Congress deem it expedient to modify
the present rate of daties, with a view to afibrd that protection to our cotton,
woollen, and iron manufactures, wliich isnecessary to secure to them the
domestic market, the necessity of resorting to a system of internal taxation
will be augmented. It is believed that the present is a favorable .moment
for afi*ording efficient protection to that increasihg arid important interest, if.
it can be done cons'istently with the general interest of the nation. The
situation of the countries from whence our foreign manufactures have been
principally drawn, authorizes the expectation that, in the event of a>monopoly ofthe home market being secured to our'cotton and woollen manufactures, a considerable portion ofthe manufacturing skill and capital of those
countries will be promptly transferred tothe United States,-and incorporated
into the domestic capital of the Union. Should this expectation be realized^ the disadvantages resulting from such a monopoly .would quickly disappear.
In the mean time,, it is believed that a system of internal taxation \youldbe
,severely felt by the great mass of our citizens.
Whether the revenue be augmented,, or the expenditure.be diminished,
•a loan to some exterit will be necessary. The augriieritation of the one, or
the dimiriution ofthe other, cannot be effected in sufficient time to prevent
this necessity. Asthe^six per cent; stock of the United States is considerably above par, the sum required to be raised by loan can be conveniently
-and advantageously obtained by the sale of stock of that description; or it
may be obtaiined by the issue of Treasury notes. If the revenue and expenditure shall be equalized, the issue of Treasury notes, not bearing interest,
is recommended in preference tothe creation or sale-of stock, as the loan,
in that*everit, will be sriiall in amount and temporary in its'riature.
All which is respectfully subniitted.
