tdlow citizens of the Senate,
and House of Representatives:
It gives mo plcnsure tu congratulate
ou Upon your return to the Seat of Gov
ernment, fur the purpose of discharging
your duties to the people of the United
States. Although the pestilence which
Imd traversed the Old World has entered
our limit;?, and extended its ravages over
much of our land, it has pleased Almigh
ty God to mitigate its seventy, and lessen
the number of its victims, compared with
those who have fallen in most other coun
tries over which it has spread its terrors.
Notwithstanding this visitation, our coun
try presents, on every side, marks of
prosperity and haooiness. iimpoh!!,.!
perhaps, in any other portion of the
world. If we fully appreciate our com
parative condition, cxistiriff causes of dis
content will appear unworthy of atten
tion, and with hearts of thankfulness to
that Divine Being who has fdled our cup
of prosperity, we shall feel our resolution
strengthened to preserve and hand down
to posterity that liberty and that union
which we have received from our fathers.
and which constitute the sources and the
hield of all our blessings.
The relations of our country continue
to present the same picture of amicable
intercourse that I had the satisfaction to
hold up to your view at the oteninr of
your last session. The same friendly
professions, the same desire to partici
pate in our flourishing commerce, the
same disposition to refrain from injuries
unintentionally oliered, are, with few ex
ceptions, evinced by all nations with
whom we have any intercourse. This de
sirable state of things may be mainly as
cribed to our undeviating practice ol the
rule which has long guided our national
policy, to require no exclusive privileges
in commerce, and to "rant none. It is
daily producing its beneficial efl'eci in the
respect shown to our flair, the protection
of our citizens and their property abroad,
and in the increase of our navigation and
the extension of our mercantile opera
tions, i he returns which have been
made out since we last met. will show an
increase during the last preceding year of
more than U,UUU tons in our slnprjinji,
aud of near forty millions of dollars in
the aggregate of our imports and exports.
. ior nave we less reason to felicitate
ourselves on the position of our political
than of our commercial concerns. They
remain in the stale in which they were
when I last addressed you a state of
prosperity and peace, the'effect of a wise
attenjion to the parting advice of the re
vered Father of his country, on this sub
ject, condensed into a maxim for the use
of posterity, by one of his most distin
guished successors, to cultivate free com
merce and honest friendship with all na
tions, but to make entangling alliances
with none. A strict adherence to this
policy has kept us aloof from the per
plexing questions that now agitate the
European world, and have more than
once deluged those countries with blood.
Should those scenes unfortunately recur,
the parties to the contest may count on a
faithful performance of the duties incum
bent on us as a neutral nation, and our
own citizens may equally rely on the firm
assertion of their neutral rights.
Here follows a minute account of our exist
ing relations with foreign governments. The
message then proceeds as follows:
In the view I have given of our connec
tion with foreign powers, allusions have
been made to their revolutions or dis&en
tions. It may be prope to observe, that
this is done solely in cases where those
events alFect our political relations with
them, or to show their operation on our
commerce; Further than this, it is nei
ther our policy nor our right to interfere.
Our best wishes on all occasions, our
good offices when required, will be affor
ded, to promote the domestic trannniliiv
and foreign peace of all nations with,
whom we have any intercourse. Any in
tervention in their affairs further than
this, even by the expression of an official
opinion, is contrary to our principles of
international policy, and will always be
The report which the Secretary of tho
Treasury will, in due lime, lav" before
you, will exhibit the national finances iu
a highly prosperous state. Owing to the
continued success of our commercial en
terprize, which has enabled the mer
chants to fulfil their engagements with
the government, the receipts from cus
toms during the year, will exceed. the es
timate presented at the last session; and
with the other means of the Treasury will
prove fully adequate, not only to meet tho
increased expenditures resulting from
the large appropriations made by Con
gress, but to provide for the payment of
all the public debt which is at present
redeemable. It is now estimated that
the customs will yield to the Treasury.
during the present vear. upwards of
twenty-eight millions of dollars. The
public lands, however, have proved less
productive than was anticipated: and ac
cording to present information, will not
much exceed two millions. The expen
ditures for all objects other than the pub
lic debt, are estimated to amount during:
the year to about sixteen millions and a
half, while a still larger sum, viz: eight
een millions of dollars, will have beeuap
plied to the principal and interest of tho
It is expected, however, that in conse
quence of the reduced rates of duty
which will take effect after the 3d of
March next, there will be a considerablo
falling off in the revenue from customs in
the year 1333. It will, nevertheless, bo
amply sufficient to provide for all tho
wants of the public service, estimated ev
en upon a liberal scale, and for the re
demption and purchase of the remainder
of the public debt. On the first of Janu
ary next, the entire public debt of the U
nitefJ States, funded and unfunded, will
be reduced to within a fraction of seven
millions of dollars: of which 2,227,363
are not of tiht redeemable until the 1st
of January. IRfU. :im! &4 7fVWOrt
until the 2d of January, 1835. The
commissioners of the sinking fund, how
ever, being invested with full authority to
purchase the debt at the market price.
and the means of the Treasury bing
ample, it may be hoped that the whole
will be extinguished within the year 1833-
1 cannot too cordially congratulato
Congress and my fellow citizens on tho
near approach of that memorable and
happy event, the extinction of the public
debt of this great and free nation. Faith
ful to the wise and patriotic policy mark
ed out be the legislation of the country
for this object, the present administra
tion has devoted to it all the means which
a flourishing commerce has supplied, and
a prudent economy preserved for tho
public Treasury. Within the four years
for which the people have confided tho
Executive power to my charge, fifty-eight
millions of dollars will have been applied
to the payment of the public debt. That
this has been accomplished without stint
ing the expenditures for all other proper
objects, will be seen by referring to tho
liberal provision made during the same
ficriod for the support and increase of our
means of maratime and military defence,
for internal improvements of a national
character, for the removal and preserva-.
lion of the Indians, and lastly for the gal
lant veterans of the revolution.
The final removal of this great burthen
from our resources affords the means of
further provision for all the objects pf ge
neral welfare and public defence whjph
the Constitution authorizes, and presenta
the occasion for such further reduction in
