our borrowing into the shade. In all the nine years of the American war, from 1773 to 1783, we only borrowed $520,000,000. In the twenty-two years of the great revolutionary war we averaged less than $200,000,000 a year, and in the tremendous year 1813-14 the loan was but $180,000,000. But this is only half the battle. The burthen of a load depends not so much on the amount of principal as on the rate of interest. We borrowed our money even in 1813 at a little above four and a half per cent, a1813 at a little above four and a half per cent, and in 1854 at a little above three per cent. The Americans, however, began by an offer of seven per cent., and are at this moment compelled to pay ten or twelve per cent.--We find, therefore, that while $300,000,000 annually would be added to their national debt, $30,000,000 annually would be added to the charge of that debt, so that four years and three-quarters of their present expenditure would saddle them with a burthen equal to that which we have incurred in decentury and a half.
