cessary fof other nations, excliatige tiMI in their
lONA ealunble form, for under the present system
thq gold übtahled front our mines, will rants Il e ex
hausted in paying for. excessive importations.
.. With a profound conviction of their truth I re
peat the opinion and words of my predecessor on
this vital subject in his annual communication to
Negress at the last session: "All history shows
that where are the workshops of the world, there
must bo the marts of the world, and the heart of
wealth, commerce, rind power."
It has bean•shown by the experience of several
Years, that the average rate of ditties imposed by
the present revenue law's is about twenty-three per
cent. upon the foreign value of our imports, inclu
ding frowns well us dutiable goods.
During the last fiscal year we imported of for
eign nitychandise, including specie, $178,310,318 ;
and we exported, of domestic products, foreign
goals,. and specie, $151,808,720, leaving a bal
/MCC against us of $26,247,598.
A large proportion of this balance hits doubtless
been paid by oar domestic stocks, whirl, find a
ready:sale nt this time in European markets.—
These last, however, as they only postpone a pres
ent payment in coin, cannot be expected to liqui
date similar balance for coming years, even if it
were the wish• of the Government to - create a large
foreign debt of this kind. The impolicy of such a
measure will not he qttestioned, and it is doubt
less the true interest of the country to avoid it.
In regulating our commerce with foreign nations,
we are therefore compelled to take, as the true ha
sis of safe importation from all countries, the ain't
of our own products,. which we may reasonably
calculate may find it Market abroad.
It is certain that the increased ability of this
country to consume lbreign goods, will at this time
safely admit a larger importation than in runner
years, yet the experience of the last year has
shown that our imports have been greatly beyond
our exports, which last must be regarded as the
true measure of our ability to consume for any
given number of years.
If open the large importations of the past year
the increase . slionld continue at the mune retio as
that of the past quarter, which as already stated,
is. n
$18,000,000, the aggregate amount for the cur
rent lineal year ending Mb Jnno, 1851, will not
fall much short of $220,000,000. A survey of the
markets of the world, it is believed, furnished no
reason to expect that our exportations will exceed
those of last year, which we have seen were a
fraction less than 152 millions. This would leave
on trade of the fiscal year, with foreigh countries,
an alarming balance, which could not Mil to be
felt in result fatal to all branches of business at
home, and highly injurious to the revenue of suc
ceeding years.
These considerations, forced by the existing
state of things npon the earnest at tintion of this
Department, are submitted to the wisdom of Con
gress, in the belief that they present reasons of the
inost imperative character . for a modification of the
Present revenue laws. The large prospective im
portations should be cheek-et] by a higher rate of
duties, so as to bring their aggregate :lumina with
in the limit of our capability to pay. If the ex
ports of the , host year define that limit, then . our
imports for the ensuing year should not greatly
exceed $122,000,000. It is believed, however,
that we may calculate safely upon an export of
gold, for several years to come, of at least from
ten to fifteen millions annually, exclusive of what
goes abroad, direct from California, without any
detrimental abet upon the currency or business
ofour people. The supply of this metal from our
own mines may at present be estimated at $50,-
000,000 annually., including that sent directly from
California to other countries, and this supply, it is
believed, will not be likely to deminish in amount
for the next two or three years.
If, then, we can afford to spare the above
amount of the precious metals in paying of foreign
merchandise, it may be fairly assumed that our ex
ports, including all articles, will be about!
one hundred and sixty-five millions, supposing al
ways the trade of the world to , remain unaffected
by any disturbing causes. In the opinion of this
Department it would be unsafe to assume an
amount of imports as a basismpon which to levy
ditties for revenue beyond this latter sum.
If the present rates ofiluties be applied to that
amount, we should receive from customs, only
$35,950,000, and the amount of revenue required
for thepresent and succeeding years would fall
short of the estimates for the current year by a
fraction over seven millions.
It cannot be doubted that a rate of duty higher
on many articles thou that paid by the present
law might be established without atiheting injuri
ously the revenue. The extrordinary 'influx of
foreign merchandise for the last year and the tir,t
quarter of the present one must be regarded us
conclusive proof that an increase of duties so as to
advance the amount of revenue seven millions on
the same amount of imports is entirely practicable.
That such increase will be found necessary to
the demands of the treasury, is believed to be be
yond doubt, unless Congress shall discontinue ma
ny of the objects of expenditure which origina
ted in our recent territorial acquisitions, and this,
in the opinion of the Department, would be equal
ly impolite and nujost.
From die foregoing considerations, the Depart
ment would submit the following modifications of
our present revenue laws
I. A elumge in the present ad valorem system.
which should impose specific duties upon tinkles
to which suvli duties may he safely applied, with
home valuations upon all such as arc necessarily
subject to ad valorem rates.
11. If the principle of specific duties shall not he
adapted, that the home valuation, instmd of the
foreign, should then be applied to all imports sub
ject to ad valorem duties. •
111. If neither of the foregoing changes shall he
ea - night proper, then it is deemed highly stereos,
ry that the present rates of duties should he increas
ed on the great variety of articles which it will he
found could bear such increase with else most salu
tary effects upon both trade mud revenue.
Either of the two first modifications suggested
above would undoubtedly correct many of the ine
qualities of the present system, place all importers,
whether purchasers or manufheturers on etpull
grounds in respect to valuations for ah•, guard
the revenue against the flagrant frauds which are so
easily perpetrated under ,xisting laws, and insure
stability lull permanent increase of the revenue.—
They aro therefore earnestiv commended to the
favorable consideration of Congress.
In any system it is believed that experience has
settled the true policy to he pursued in several
particulars which eater into our system ofrevenue
laws. Among these arc, that all raw material
should be admitted at a muderaut rote of duty,
When assessed at all, that all nonenumerated ami
des should be assessed at higher rates ofduty than
the average of manufactured articles, and that all
articles composed of the same material should pay
in general the same rates of duty.
In order to insure uniformity in the business of
the custom-houses, and equality its the valuntios
tinder any system, I earnestly recommend the
creation of a corps of appraisers at large, whose
duty it shall be to visit the principal ports of entry
in the United States from time to time, with pow
er to correct improper retentions and prescribe
rules fur local appraisers.
The amount of coinage at the mint in Philadel
phia during the mouth just past has exceeded flair
millions of dollars ; and, if the experiments. now
progressing under the authority of Congres4 - fur
wan a new process of assaying should equal the
expectations whim have been formed respecting
it, the capabilities of that establishment will be ex
tended to the coinage of eight millions monthly;
and with the branch mint at New Orleans, will be
fully able to furnish coin, without any unreasona
bledelay, for all the future probable receipts of
gold dust nud bullion. In order, however, to fa
cilitate business transactions, Mr. Corwin recom
mends that.Cougres authorise the Tmisitry De-
Alent to receive all gold autl silver bullion in
tended for recoiling°, and so soon as it could be
assayed and the correct value of it assertained,
that mint certificates should be issued for the same,
in convenient NUM at the option of the owners
which certificates sliould be made receivable ilr
all dues to the United States, the Government be
ing at the expense of conveying such bullion to
the mint for coinage.

Mot at an Execution in Minois.
PEoluA, 111., lice. 19. 1850.
Our city was again thrown into much excite+
meet to-day. The execution of Brown and Will
iams, for the murder of Mr. Hewett, was to have
taken place yesterday, but by order faun the Gov
ernor, received on Wednesday, it was extended to
the 15th ofJanuary next. This not being gener
ally known nor credited, large masses of people of
this and ajoining counties assembled to witness
the execution, and being disappointed in their ex
pectations, a portion of them resolved that the
permits should be executed forthwith, and urged
on by exciting speeches, they got possess:on of the
scatlbld from the jail yard, and erected it iu the
street, in front of the jail.
They then effected an entrance by jerking the
'looms and locks ; told proceeded with crowbars,.
mantling and other impletnents, to the cells where
they met with resistance from Brown, who al
though shackled, as soon as the cells wore opened,
stepped out into the hall, disarmed a few of the
mobburs by taking from them the crowbars and
scantling, barred his cell of the inside, and defied
them. He broke the mauling over the mobbers
and gave them other striking illustrations of his
entire disapproval of such unlawful proceedings.—
The prisoners were again secured iu the cats, and
betbre dark the crowd dispersed.
Thus resulted, what at first all supposed would
he it most tragical and disgraceful nithir. The
mob fell back, and a few of onecitizens dropping
in at this conjuncture, prevented further violence.
TIM ReceNT SNOW STOR3L—The snow in the
State of Maine now lies front 25 to 30 inches in
depth through the whole State. In I'mland it
lies about 25 inches in depth, and considerably
drifted. The highways in New Ilampshire are so
blocked up as to be nearly impassible. Thu storm
extended west and north to Montreal, l',,,trdo, and
sections more remote. On lake Erie , • !,‘ was.
very severe, and it is supposed that many vessels
were lost or driven ashore. In Buffalo Ihe roofs
of several buildings were broken iti by the Snow.
