TREASURY DEPARTMENT, September 25, 1813.

SIR: More than twelve millions and a half of dollars were this day offered for the loan of seven and a half millions. The rate at which the loan is taken, is eighty-eight dollars and twenty-five cents in money for each hundred dollars in stock. Your proposal for three millions of dollars of the loan, having been at this rate, has been accepted; but in consequence of the large surplus offered, it has been necessary to reduce the amount allowed to you to two millions one hundred and fifty-two thousand dollars. Upon completing the payment of this sum in the proportions and at the periods stated in the public notification relating to this loan, of the 30th of August last, you will be entitled to receive stock at the rate above-mentioned.

If you shall desire, or any of the persons in whose behalf your proposal was made, to obtain the certificates of funded stock before the 15th of February next, the day on which the last instalment of the loan will be payable, it may be effected, by paying on any day fixed for the payment of an instalment, after the first, all the subsequent instalments; but interest will in such case be allowed only as if each instalment had been paid on the day fixed in the public notification of the 30th of August. You will be pleased, on receipt of this letter, to state to me the Bank or Banks in which the money will be paid; and if more than one, the precise sum payable at each; and on or before the 15th of October, will furnish the Cashier or Cashiers of such Bank or Banks, with the names of the persons in whose behalf your proposal has been made, and the sums payable by each.

The commission of one-eighth per cent. will be paid from the Treasury, after the payment of the first instalment on the 15th of October next. I am, respectfully, sir,

Your obedient servant,

W. JONES, Acting Secretary of the Treasury.

JONATHAN SMITH, Esq. Philadelphia.



The Secretary of the Treasury, in obedience to the act "supplementary to the act, entitled an act to establish the Treasury Department," has the honor respectfully to submit to Congress the following report and estimates. The sums authorized by Congress to be expended during the year 1814, and for which appropriations have been made, are as follows:

1. For Civil, Diplomatic, and Miscellaneous expenses,

$2,245,355 59

To this sum is to be added, the amount which may be payable on the following accounts, viz: 1. The amount of fines, penalties, and forfeitures actually received into the Treasury, which is appropriated for defraying the expenses of courts of the United States. 2. The sums received by the Collectors of the Customs for the Marine Hospital Fund and Privateer Pension Fund,which are paid into the Treasury with the other moneys derived from the customs, but are exclusively applicable to the two objects here mentioned, respectively. 3. The moneys received into the Treasury for the United States' moiety of prizes captured by public vessels, which belong exclusively to the Navy Pen-. sion Fund. These items are contingent and uncertain, until the accounts for the year are made up, and their amount ascertained. As they appear among the receipts into the Treasury, they must also be placed among its expenditures. They may be estimated for the year 1814, at

200,000 00

2. Military expenses, including the Indian Department, and the permanent appropriation of 200,000 dollars annually, for arming and equipping the whole body of the militia of the United States,

3. Naval expenses, including 200,000 dollars for the purchase of timber, appropriated by the act of March 30, 1812,

2,445,355 59

24,502,906 00

8,169,910 87


4. For the Public Debt, such sum as the public engagements may require; and which, during the year 1814, may be estimated as follows:

Interest on the public debt existing previously to the pre1,980,000 00

sent war,

Interest on the debt contracted during the present war, including the loans of the present year and Treasury Notes,

Reimbursement of principal, consisting of the annual reimbursement of the old six per cent. and deferred stocks, temporary loans payable during this year, and Treasury Notes reimbursable during the same period,

But for these purposes there had been advanced from the Treasury during the year 1813, to sundry Commissioners of Loans, beyond the demands upon them for the year 1813, and to the Treasurer of the United States as Agent for the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund, about

Leaving payable during the year 1814,

Postage, and Incidental Receipts,

350,000 00

12,152,000 00

$47,270,172 46

The means by which this sum was to be provided, were the following: 1. Moneys receivable on account of the public revenue, and which were estimated as follows:

6,500,000 00
600,000 00
3,800,000 00

3,592,665 00

25,000,000 00

5,000,000 00

And it was estimated, that out of the balance of cash remaining in the Treasury on the 1st day of January, 1814, which amounted to $ 5,196,482 00, there might be applied a sum sufficient to cover the whole amount of the authorized expenditures, and which would be

10,950,000 00

33,592,665 00

2,727,507 46

$47,270,172 46

The accounts of the Treasury have as yet been made up only for the two first quarters of the year 1814, or to the 30th of June, of that year. The annexed statement, marked A., shows the receipts and expenditures at the Treasury for the fourth quarter of the year 1813, which have not before been communicated to Congress, and separately, those of the two first quarters of the year 1814.
