am happy, however, to be able to inform you that during the last fiscal year ending on the 30th June, 1860, the total expenditures of the Government in all branches — legislative, executive, and judoks of the Treasury show an actual expenditure of $59,848,474.72 for the year ending on the 30th June, 1860, including $1,010,667.71 for the contingent expenses of Congress, there must be deducted frothe sum of $59,848,474.72, in order to ascertain the expenditure for the year ending on the 30th June, 1860, which leaves a balance for the expenditures of that year of $55,402,465.46. The interest on the public debt, including Treasury notes for the same fiscal year ending on the 30th June, 1860, amounted to $3,177,314.62, which, added to the above sum of $55,402,465.16, makes the aggregate of $5stice to be observed that several of the estimates from the departments for the year ending 30th June, 1860, were reduced by Congress below what was and still is deemed compatible with the public inte

The permanent public debt on June 30, 1860, was $45,079,203 08, and the outstanderal.

ate United States were between three and four hundred millions; and Mr. King's statement of Southern exports at only one hundred and fifty millions, places those of the south below those of the North, and makes the North, Instead of the South, the great experting section of the Union. We do not know any statement that could have gone before the European mind on Southern authority which is calculated to do us more injury. The Southern export of cotton alone in the fiscal year ending June 30, 1860, was to the sales of $191,806,555, as officially reported by the United States Secretary of Treasury. Mr. King is a citizen of a cotton State, and yet states the total exports of the South at forty-odd millions less than her actual export of the single staple. The amount of Southern exports is, as to the greater portion of it, a matter of ascertained fact, beyond conjecture, and there is no excuse for ignorance on the subject. We published a month or two ago, on our fourth page, fro
Salt — recapture of Kanawha. The supply of salt is becoming a seriously mooted question. The value of the article imported into the United States during the year ending June 30, 1860, was $1,431,141.--The official tables do not give the quantity; but, estimating the sack at two-and-a-half bushels, and at a dollar-and-a-half in price, the quantity was about 2,335,235 bushels.--If we suppose one-third of this quantity to have been imported for Southern consumption, the supply required for the Southern market over and above what is manufactured within the Southern States, would be 778,412 bushels. Whence this extraordinary supply is to be obtained, is a question of some interest. The works near Abingdon, in Washington county, in this State, have heretofore manufactured about three hundred thousand bushels a year. Owing to the high freights on the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad, this supply has nearly all gone off in wagons through the country, and upon boats down the Holsto
ur new Government; that the railroads run by military schedules, and that a myriad of small as well as large matters have to be investigated, we think the voice of complaint should be hushed, or at least that the people should patiently await the correction of things that go wrong. Many suppose that there were no mail irregularities under the old Government. By reference to the Post-Office reports of the past year or two, we find that on the Southwestern route, for the year ending June 30th, 1860, the mail arrivals in schedule time were 340; out of schedule time, 339. On the Atlantic route, via Wilmington, N. C., during a portion of the year, the arrivals in schedule time were 431; out of schedule time, 136. The year 1857 shows a still greater number of irregularities on the same routes; yet the Post-master General, in his report, says the years 1859-'60 showed a marked improvement as compared with preceding years! We learn from the Department that post-masters throughout
The Postmaster General's report. From the report of the Hon. John H. Reagan, Postmaster General, we gather the following facts relating to the operations of the Department over which he presides. The total post of the mail service in the eleven States of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia, for the fiscal year ending June 30th, 1860, under the Government of the United State, was $1,295,245.75 and the total Receipts, for postal service, for the same year were $1,517,549.33 Process of expenditure over receipts, $2,773,706.23. The receipts for the fractional quarter of one month, ending the 30th of June last (as shown by the meagre and imperfect returns) were 492,387.57; and expenditures $300,937.97; excess of expenditures over receipts, $118,553.39. Of an appropriation of $30,000 to carry into effect an act of Congress, "relative to telegraph lines in the Confederate States," there has
expedients for relief. We take for a basis of exhibit the statement of Mr. Spalding, of New York, a member of the Committee of Ways and Means in the Federal House of Representatives, in a late speech on the finances, he computed the eventual debt entailed on the Federal Government by the war, in the most favorable event, and by the strictest conclusion, at $1, 800,000,000-- eighteen hundred millions of dollars. Turning to the official tables made up at the U. S. Treasury, to the 30th June, 1860, the last year of the undivided Union, we find that the total expenditures of the Federal Government, from its beginning in March, 1789, to that day, amounting to $2,151 8,828 twenty-one hundred and fifty millions of dollars. So, the attempt to enslave the Southern States will have cost, for the beginning of the war, as we esteem it from the most invariable estimate of its completion, as the invaders count it, six- sevenths of the whole amount which served to support the whole Fed

The Departments — expenses of the army — counterfeiting& Some interesting information is gleaned from the reports of the Departments accompanying the President's Message to Congress. In the post department, the receipts for ten months ending June 30, 1860, exceed those of the late United State for the same time, $59,921, and the cost of service was reduced by the sum of $1,515,829. In the Treasury, up to the 1st of August, 62, the receipts were $302,535,196 and the expenses $328,748,830--the difference of $26,193,634 being made up of various balances to the credit of disbursing officers, which are not yet paid. The war tax has been by the several States as follows: North Carolina, $1,400,000; Virginia, $2,125,000; Louisiana, $2,500,000; Alabama, $3,000,000; Georgia, $434,126; Florida, $225,374, and Mississippi, $1,484,467--making a total of $10,168,967. South Carolina has paid her quota in the form of 6 per cent' call certificates; Arkansas and Texas have not been rendered comp
