The entire debt of the United States
is officially reported, under date of May
31st, at a little over twenty-six hundred
and thirty-five millions of dollars, which
is near five hundred millions more than
was estimated in the last report of the
Treasury Department. The exnc figures
are. as f ol!ow3 .. .

The annual interest in coin and cur
rency logetherjs over"one hundred and
twenty-four, millions, which is an incon
siderable fraction less than six per cent,
on the interest-paying portion. We are
now able for the first time to assign a
proximate limit to the debt, and to esti
mate very closely its yearly burden, on
the country . When all the expenses of
the war are settled the mass will doubt
less be near three thousand millions of
dollars. The policy pf the Government
will be to convert the Treasury notes in
to bonds with as little delay as possible.
At six per cent., which is the present
average rate, our annual interest will be
one hundred and eight millions of dol
lars. The estimated receipts for the year
ending June 30, 1865, are three hundred
and ninety-six millions as follows :
From Customs
From internal duties
From Janfjs
From miscellaneous

If we add to this amount the interest
on the debt, and allow seventy-five mil
lions for army and navy expenses, we
shall have a total requirement of three
hundred and two millions. We may,
therefore, either reduce our taxes one
third or have an excess of near one hund
red millions to apply in liquidation of the
debt. Sound policy dictates that we shall
reduce the scale of taiation and keep it
low until need to the productive powers
of the country are fully restored to activ
ity, rather than to push immediately upon
liquidation. We shall then have the
whole country from which to reap income,
instead of the half as novv, and the reduc
ed scale, spread over double the surface,
will not need to be enlarged.
This is certainly a very satisfactory
exhibition. We announce it as a fact
capable of demonstration, that our taxa
tion might this day be reduced one-third,
or, if the five hundred millions of treas
ury notes be not funded, to fully one-half
of the present rates, and the gridual ex
tinction of the debt go on successfully.
If cur allowance for the army and navy
appears small, we have cn, the other hand
made none for increased revenue from
imports, on which we may probably de
pend for twenty-five millions more than
is officially set down. The treasury
estimate of but one million of receipts
from the sale of public lands wa3 made
under the depression of war. Now this
is relieved and peace is established, with
an active tide of emigration, we may ex
pect them to assume something like the
old proportions of eight millions a year,

We all remember the story of the inn
keeper who became proudaa he prosper
ed, and taking down hi? sign of ths Ass,
put up a portrait cf George IV. in ha
place. His neighbor irnmediatrly raised
theast-off effigy, and "in this sign ho
conquered." The first landlord, alarmed
at the increasing popularity of his rival,
and understanding the cause, wrote un
der the grim visage of h;3 Majesty, "This
is the real A33."
But a more ludbcroa3 of the kind 13
just now told at the expense of the good
Bishop Llan;4aff. He took up his abod j
near the head of Lake Windermere,
where tho principal inn had been known,
as the Cock ; but the landlord, by way
of compliment to his distinguished neigh
bor, substitu:cd the Bishop a3 the new
sign. An inn-keeper close by, who had
frequently envied mine host of the Cock,
for his good fortune in secureing a con
siderable preponderence of visitor?, took
advantage of the change, and attracted
many travelers to his house by putting
up the sign of the Cock. Tho landlord
with the new sign wa3 much discomfited
at seeing many of his old customers de- ;
posited at his rival's establishment Se, "
by way of remedy, he put up An large,'
red letters, under the portrait of the Bish-
op, "This is the old Cock."
