    the circumstances of the country
should require an augmentation of the
army. The volunteer force has al
ready been reduced by the discharge
from service of over eight hundred
thousand troops, and the Department
is proceedir.g rapidly in the worls of
further reduction. The war estimates
are reduced from $516,240,131 to $33,-
81.4416, which amount, in the opinion
of the Department, is adequate for a
peace establishment.. The measures
of retrenchment in each Bureau and
branch of the service exhibit a diligent
economy worthy of commendation.
Reference is also made in the report
to the necessity of providing for a uni
form militia system, and to the pro.
priety of making suitable provision
for wounded and disabled officers and
A Just Financial Policy Recommended.
The •I ermine system of the country
is a subject of vital interest to its hon•
or and prosperity, and should cony.
mand the earnest consideration of
Congress. The Secretary of the Treas
ury will lay before you a full and de
tailed report of the receipts and dis•
bursements of the last fiscal year, of
the probable receipts and expenditures
fur the other three quarters, and the
estimates for the year following the
80th of June, 1866. I might content
myself with a reference to that report,
in which you - will find all the informa•
tion required for your deliberations
and decision. But the paramount im
portance of the subject so pregses it•
self on my own mind, that I cannot
but lay before you my views of the
measures which are required for the
good character, and I might say for
the existence of this people. The life
of the republic lies certainly in the en
ergy, virtue, and intelligence of its
citizens; but it is equally true that a
good revenue system is tho life of an
organized government. I meet you
at a time when the nation has volun
tarily burdened itself with a debt
unprecedented in our annals. Vast as
is its amount, it fades away to nothing
when it is compared with the count.
less blessings that will be conferred
upon our country and upon man by
the - preservation of the nation's life.
Now, on the first occasion of the meet
ing of Congress since the return of
peace, it- is of the utmost importance
to inaugurate a just policy,which shall
at once be put in motion, and which
shall commend itself to those who
comp after us for its continuance.
We must aim at nothing less than the
complete effacement of the financial
evils that necessarily followed a state
of civil war. We must endeavor to
apply the earliest remedy to the de
ranged state of the currency, and not
shrink from devising a policy which,
without being oppressive to the pea,
pie, shall immediately begin to effect
a reduction of the debt, and, if persis
ted in, discharge it fully within a defi
nitely fixed number of years.
Gradual Reduction of Currency Re-
It is our first duty to prepare in
earnest for our recovery from the ever
increasing evils of an irredeemable
currency,, without :a sudden revulsion,
and yet without untimely procrastina
tion. For that end we must, each in
our respective positions, prepare the
way. I hold it the duty of the Exec
utive to insist upon frugality in the
expenditures; and a sparing economy
is itself a great national resource. Of
the banks to which authority has 'been
given to issue notes secured by bonds
.of the United States, we may require
the greatest mcderation and prudence,
and the law must be rigidly enforced
when its limits are exceeded: Wo may
each one of us counsel our active and
enterprising countrymen to be con
stantly on their guard, to liquidate
.debts contracted in a paper currency,.
and, by conducting business as nearly
as possible on a system 9f cash pay
ments or short credits, to hold thorn
s:elves prepared to return to the stand
ard of gold and silver. - To aid our
fellow citizens in the prudent manage.
anent of their monetary affairs, the Ort
..ty devolves on us to:diminish -by law
the amount of paper money now in
~circulation. Five years ago the bank
note circulation of the country amoun
ted to not much more than two hund
red millions; now the circulation, bank
and national, exceeds seven hundred
millions. The simple statement of the
: fact recommends more strongly than
any words of mine could do, the neces
sity of our restraining this expansion.
The gradual reduction of the currency
is the only measure that can save the
country from disastrous calamities;
and this can be almost imperceptibly
accomplished by gradually funding the
national circulation in securities that
may be made redeemable at the plea ,
cute of the Government.
Security of the Public Debt.
Our debt is doubly secure-Lfirst in
the actual wealth and still greater un
developed resources of the country;
and next in the character of our insti
tutions. The most intelligent obs,ery
ere among political economists have not
failed to remark, that the public debt
of a country is safe in proportion as its
• people aro free; that the debt .of u re
public is safest of all. Our history
confirms and establishes the theory,
and is, I firmly believe, destined to give
it a still more signal illustration. The
secret of •this superiority springs not
Merely from the fact that in a republic
the national obligations aro distributed
more widely through countless num
bers in all classes of society; it has its
root in the character of our laws.—
here all men contribute to the public
welfare, and bear their fair Oar() of
tho public burdens. During the war,
Under impulses of patriotism, the men
of the great body et the people, witl•
.out. regard to their own comparative
want of wealth, thronged to our lir.
mies and
. filled our fleets of war, and
held themselves ready to offer their
lives for the public good. .Zcow, in
:their turn, the property and income of
tiM country should bear their just pro
portion of the burden of taxatibn,while
in our impost system, through means
of which increased vitality is incident
ally imparted to all the industrial into
rests of the nation, the duties should be
no udjusted as to fall most heavily on
articles of luxury, leaving the necessa
ries of life as free from taxation as the
absolute wuutm ut the Government, e
conomically administered, will justify.
'..0 ..No favored class should demand free:
do:n from as , t•ssment, and the taxes
should be so distributed as not to fall
unduly on the poor, but rather on the
accumulated wealth of the country.—
WV should look at the national debt
just as it is—not as a national blessing
but as a heavy burden on the industry
of the country, to be discharged with•
out unnecessary delay.
Treasury Estimates.
It is estimated by the Secretary of
the Treasury that the expenditures of
the fiscal year ending the 30th of June,
1866, will exceed the receipts $112,194-
917. It is gratifying however to state
that it is also estimated that the rev
enue for the year ending' the 30th of
June, 1867, will exceed the expendi
tures in the sum 0f'8111,682,818. This
amount, or so inucli as may be deemed
sufficient for the purpose, may be ap
plied to the redaction of the public
debt, which, on the .31st day of Octo
ber, 1865, was 82,740,854,750. Every
reduction will diminish tho•total am'nt
of interest to be paid, and so enlarge
the means of still further reductions,
until the whole. shall he ligaidated ;
And this, as will be seen from the esti•
mates of the Secretary of the Treasury
may be aecomplished by annual pay
ments even within a pei•iq,l not ex
ceeding thirty years. .1 have faith
that we shall do all this within .a rea
sonable time; that, gs we have amazed
the world by the suppression of a civ
il war which was thought to be beyond
the control of any Government, so we
shall equally show the superiority of
our institutions by the prompt and
faithful discharge - of our national obli

Our Relations with Foreign Powers.

For myself, it has been and it will be
my constant aim to promote Reitman('
amity \ll,Ol all foreign nations and
powers; and I have every reason to
believe that they all, without .excep
tion, are animated by the same dispo
sition. Our relations with the Empe•
ror-of China, so recent in their origin,
are most friendly. Our commerce
with lds dominions is receiving new
developments; and it is very pleasing
to find that the Government of that
great Empire manifests satisfaetton

nel of in'ercourse. Our commerce
with South 'America is about to re
ceive encouragement by a direct line
of mail steamships to the rising Ein•
pile of Brazil. The distinguished party
of men of science who have recently
left our country to make a scientific
exploration of the natural history, and
rivers and mountain ranges of that
region, have received from the Empe•
ror that generous welcome which was
to have been expected from his con
stant friendship for the United States,
and his well known zeal in promoting
the advancement of knowledge.
A hope is entertained that our com
merce with the rich and populous conn•
tries that border the Mediterranean
Sea may be largely increased. Noth
ing will be wanting on the part of this
Government, to extend the protection
of our fellow citizens. We receive from
the powers in that region assurances
of good will; and. it is worthy of note
that a special envoy has brought us
tummi z' es of condolence on the death
of our lute Chief Magistrate from the
Bey of Tunis, whose rule includes the
old dominions of Carthage on the 4.f.
rican coast.
The Difficulty with Great Britain.
Our demestic contest, now happily
ended, -has left some traces in our re
lations with one, at least, of the great
maritime Powers. The formal accor
dance of belligerent rights to the in
surgent States was unprecedented,
and has not beer, justified by the issue.
But in the system of neutrality pur—
sued by the Powers whiA 'made that
concession, there was a marked dif.
forence. The materials of war for
the insurgent States were furnished,
in a great measure, from the work
shops of Great Britain; and British
ships, manned by British subjects and
prepared for receiving British arma
ments, sailed from the ports of Great
Britain to make War on American
commerce, under the shelter of a com
mission from the insurgent States.
These ships, having once escaped
from British ports, ever afterwards en
tered them in every part of the world,
to refit, and so to renew their depreda
tions. The consequences of this con.
duct was most disastrous to the states
then in rebellion, increasing their des
olation and misery by the prolongation
of our civil contest.. It had, moreover ;
the effect, to a g reat extent, to drive
flagthe American from the sea, and
to transfer much-of our shipping and
commerce to the very Power whose
subjects had created the necessity for
such a change. These events took
place before I was called to the admin
istration of the Government. The
sincere desire for peace by
,which I am
animated led me to approve the propo
sal, already made, to submit the ques
tions which had thus arisen between
the Iwo countries to arbitration.
These questions are of such moment
that they must have commanded the
attention of the great powers, and are
so interwoven with tho peace and in•
terest of every ono of them as to have
insured nn impartial decision. I re
gret to inform you that Great Britain
declined the arbitrament, but, on the
other• hand,linvited us to the formution
of a joint commission to settle mutual
claims between the two countries, from
which those for the depredations be
fore mentioned should be excluded
The proposition, in that very unsatis
iactory..firre, tins been declined.
The United States did not present
this object as an impeachment of the
good faith of a power which was pro
fessing-the most friendly dispositions,
but as involving questions of public
law, of which the settlement is essen
tial to the peace of a nation ; and al
though pecuniary reparation to their
injured citizens would have followed
incidentally on a decision against
Great Britain, such compensation was
not their prim:try objec•t.. They had a
higher motive, and it was in the inter
ests of peace and justice to establish
important principles of international
law. The correspondence will be
placed before you.
ground on which the British
Minister rests his justification is, sub•
stantially, that tho municipal law of a
nation, and the domestic interprota
lions of that law, are the measure of
its duty as a neutral, and I feel bound
to declare my opinion before you and
before the world, that that justification
cannot be sustained before the tribe•
nal of nations. AL the same time Ido
not advise to any present attempt at re•
dress by acts of legislation. For the
future, friendship between the two
countries must rest on the basis of mu
trial justice.
The Monroe Doctrine.
From 'the moment of the establish
ment of our free Constitution, the civil.
lied world has been convulsed by revo
lutions in the interests of democracy
or of monarchy ; but through all those
revolutions the United States have
wisely and firmly refused to become
propagandists of republicanism. It is
the only government suited to our
condition ; but we have never sought
to impose it on others, and we have
consistently . followed the advice of
Washington to recommend it only by
the careful preservation and prudent
use of the ()leash)... Purifier all the in•
tervening period' the policy of Euro
pean powers and of the United States
hits, on the whole, been harmonious.
Twice, ,frideed, runrors of the invasion
of some parts of America, in the inter,
est ofmonarchy, have prevailed ; twice
my predecessors . have had occasion to
announee the views of this nation in
respect to such interference.
On bOth occasions the remonstrance
of . the Veiled States was respected,
from a deep conviction on the part of
European governments, that the sys•
tent of non interferenee,and mutual
abstinence from propagandism was
the true rule for the two hemispheres.
Since those times we have advanced in
wealth and power, but, we retain the
same purpose to leave the nations of
Europe to choose their own dynasties
and form their• own systems of gov
ernment. This consistent moderation
may justly demand a corresponding
moderation. We should regard it as
a great calamity to our,;elvcs, to the
peace of the world, should any Euro
pean power challenge the American
people, as it were, to the defense of
republicanism against foreign interfer
We cannot foresee and are unwill
ing to consider what opportunities
might present themselves, what combi
nations might offer to protect ourselves
against designsinimical to our form of
government. The :United States des
siro to act in the future as they have
ever acted heietofore; they will never
be driven from that course but, by the
aggression of guropeau Powers; and
wo rely on the wisdom and justice of
those Powers to respect the system of
non-interference which has so long
been sanctioned by time, and which
by its good results, has approved itself
to both continents.
The correspondence between the
United States and Frace, in reference
to questions which have become sub•
jects of discussion between the two
Governments, will, at a proper time;
be laid before Congress.
The Destiny of the Republican Doctrine.
%Then on the organization of our
GoVernment, under the Constitution,
the President, of the United States do
livered his inaugural address to the
two Houses of Congress he saidto them,
and through them to the country and
to mankind, that "the preservation of
the sacred tire of liberty and the des
tiny of the republican model of govern
ment, are justly considered as deeply,
perhaps as finally staked on the expe
riment intrusted to the American peo
And the House of Representatives
answered Washington by the voice of
Madison :—"Wo adore the invisible
hand which has led the American peo
ple through so many difficulties, to
cherish a conscious responsibility for
the destiny of republican liberty."
More than seventy-six years have gli
ded away since these words were spo,
ken ; the United States have passed
through severer• trials than were fore
seen ; and now, at this new epoch in
our existence as one nation, with our
Union purified by sorrows, and
strengthened by conflict,and establish
ed the virtue of the people, the
greatness of the occasion invites us
once more to repeat, with..golemnity,
the pledges of our fathers to hold our
selves answerable before onr fellowmen
for the success of the republican form
of goyertnent.
