Not from a Government which is founded by, administered fnr, and sup-.ported by the people. We trace, them to Ihe peculiar clia. racier of the epoch in which we live, and to the extr.iordi. nary occurrences whidi have signajiscil it. Tbe convulsions with which several of Ihe Powers of Europe have been shaken, and the long and destructive wars in which all were engaged, with their sudden transition to a st.ite of peace, presenting, in the first insiance, unusual encouragement to our commerce, and withdrawing it in the second, even within its wonted limit', could not fail to be sensibly felt here. 1'he station, too, which we had lo support through this long conflict, compelled, as we were, finally lo tjftome a party lo it with a principal Power, and to mak^freat ex;an8 of previously knowing the existence of the additional duty. " The contest between Spain and tbe Colonies, according lo tbe most natbentic itifbrmation, is maintained hy the lat- aiiUk.-.iakprov�d success. The --unfVirlnnnte tlivi^iofH* : which were known lo exist some time since a( Buenos Ayrcs, j it is understood, still prevail. In no part of South America has Spain made any impression on the Coluniep, while in many parts, and particularly in V'eneiuein and New Gre. nada, the Colonics have gained strength and acquired reputation, both for Ihe management of the war, in which they have been successful, and for the order of tbe internal ad-ministration. The late change in Ihe Government of Spain, by tbe re-establisbmenl of tbe Constitution of 1812,-is an event'Wbich promises to be favourable to the revulntion. Under Ihe authority of the Cortes, tbe Congress of Angos. tiira was inrited lo open a negocialinn Ihe settlement of difiTerences between the parties; to which it was replied, that they would willingly open ibe negucialiou, provided Ihe ac. knowledgment of their independence was made its basis, but not otherwise. Of further proceedings between lliem we are uninformed. No facts are known lo this Govero-roent to warrant the belief that any of the Powers of Europe will lake part in Ibe contest; whence it may be, in. ferred, considering all circumstances, which must have weight in productug the' result, that an adjustment will finally take place, on Ihe basis proposed by the Colonies. To promote that result, by friendly counsels with other Powers, including Spain herself, has been the uniform policy of this Government. " In looking to the inlernal concerns of our country, you will, I am persuaded, derive much satisfaction from a view of the several objects to which, in the discharge of your official duties, your attention will be drawn. Among these, none holds a more important place than the public revenue^ f^rom Ibe direct operation of the power hy which it is raised on Ihe people, and by its influence in giving effect lo every other power of the Government, The revenue depends on the resources of the country, and Ibe facility by which tbe amount required is raised, is a strong proof of tbe extent of the resources, and of the effieicury of the Government. A few prominent facts will place Ihis great interest in a just light before yon. On Ihe 30lh of September, 1815, the funded and floating debt of the United States was estimated at one hundred and nineteen millions six hundred and thirly-Bve thousand five hundred and fifty-eight dollars. If to this sum be added the amount of five per cent, stock sub. scribed to the bank of the United States, the amount of Mississippi stock, and of the stork which was issued subsequently lo.that dale, the balsncea.ascertained to be duf? to certain Slates for military services, and lo Individuals for supplies furirished, and services rendered, during the late war, the public debt may beealimaled as amounting, at that date, ami as afterwards liquidated, to 158,713,949 didlars. On September 30, 1820, it amounted to 91.993,883 dnl-iars, having been reduced in that interval, by piiymenis, 6ti,S79,lei's dollars. During this term, the rxpinsi-s of the Gwveirnmentqf the United States wtre likewise dtfrayed, in evrry branch Of the civil, military, and naval eslablishmenls; the public edifices in this city have.been rebuilt, with considerable adcii'tions ; extensive forliflcutious have been com. menced,and are in a train of execultiin; permauent ararfs^is and magazines have beeu erected in various parts uf tim Union ; our navy has been considerably augmented,.and the\ ordnance, munitions of war, and stores of the army and navy, which were muchexhau.aled duriug ihe war, have been replenished. " By the discharge of so large a proportion of the public debt, and Ihe execution, of such extensive and important operations, iu sa short a time, a just estimate may be fonn-ed'of tbe great extent of our.natioual resources. The de-'moBslralioo is the more complete and gratifying, when it is recollected that tbe direct tax and excise were re.pealcd soon after the termination of the late war, and tha.t the revenue applied to these purposes has been derived almost wholly from other sources. " The receipts into the Treasury from every soiircf, to Ihe 30tb September hist, have amounted to 113,794,107 dollari -66 c. wbilsl the public expenditures, to the lame period, umonitted lol6,87l,534 doll. 72c.; leaving in the Treai;ury, on that day, a sum estimated at l,9o0,000 doll. For Ihe probable receipt's of the following year, I refer yuii to tiie statement which will be transinilled from the Treasnry.' " The sum of three millions of dollars, authorised to be raised by loan, by an Act of ihe last Session of Coiigiesi-, his been obtained upon terms adv^iilageons to. the Government, indicatiug not uiiiy an|increased confidence in the^fsilti of the nation, but ibe existence of a large amount of capital seeking ttft m ide.of luvi'Sijn.eiif, al a. rale of i�l>' It) eitlend In Ihe purchaiiert of these latu^s, in onsttJerafioii f the unfftvonfabie change'wliirb has (Hrcorred since tliei salel^ a. rrasoiiabie inr-cliasee tvrce.msde wl)e9 the price �f every arti�tr bailrW-cri. to the greatest lieighl, and lb�l (be, iiisiati^iilk ve Incn--"-ii'R ^ue ot a period of great deprissioa.
