The sudden death of the distinguished citizen
who reperiented the U. .S in France, without
any special arrangements by him for such, a con
tingency, has left us without the expected sequel
to hii last communications s 1 nor has the French
overnment taken any measures for bringing the
epending negotiation to a conclusion, through
its reDresentative in the United btates. this
and as a further proof of the disposition on the
part 6f the United States to meet their adversary
in honorable experiments for terminating the war,
it was determined to avoid intermediate delay,
incident to the distance of the parties, by a defi
nitive provision for the contemplated negocra
tton. Three of our eminent citizens were accord
ingly commissioned with the requisite powers to
, include a treaty of peace, with persons clothed
frith like powers on the part of G. Britain. They

and a connexion of their fortunes with the systems

sums received on account of Treasury Notes, and
of the loans authorised by the acts of the last arid

at the end of tfie present year, equal to thatin
the first ofJpril last. Apart of this sum my
be considered as a resource for defraying any ex
traordinary expences already authorised by law
beyond the sums above estimated ; and a further
resuurce for any emergency n.jy be found in thf
sum of one million of dollars, the loan of which to
the U. States has v jbeen authorised by the state of
Pennsylvania but which has not yet been brought
into effect. -
This view of the finances, whihitshewtt that
due prpvision has been made for the expences of
the cutf ent year, shews at the same time,' by the
limited amount of tbe actual revenue, and in
dependence on loans, the necessity of providing
more adequately for the future supplies of the
treasury. This can bst be done by a well diges
ted system ot' internal revenue, in aid of existing"
sources ; which, wilt 'have the effect, both of a
bridging' the Amount of necessary loans, and rm
that account, ra well as by placing ths public cred
it on a more satisfactory basis of improving the
terms on which loans may be obtained. , The
loan of sixteen millions-was not Contracted for at
a less interest than about seven, and a half per
cent, and although other causes may have bad
an agency? it cannot be doubtedflhat withlhead-r
vantage of a more extended and less precarious
revenue, a lower rate of interest mighr liavty suf
