Finances of North Carolina.

--The annual statement of the Treasurer of the State of North Carolina shows that the receipts of the public fund for the year ending September 30th, 1863, amount to $16,208,440 88, which, together with the balance due this fund on the 30th September of $1,541,993 02, make $17,750,373 90. The disbursements for the same period were $15,078,922 97, leaving a balance on hand on the 1st of October $2,671,450 93. The receipts of the literary fund for the same period were $508,782 54, and the disbursements $281,591 43. These large receipts and expenditure of the public fund are mainly on account of the military establishment maintained by the State for the purpose of clothing troops and purchasing supplies.

The total amount of State bonds issued is $21,132,000, and of this amount $8,949,500 were issued previously to the 20th May, 1861, and are known as the old coupon and registered bonds. The periods at which the bonds of all kinds will fall due range from 1864 to 1893; the amount, however, which will fall due before 1882 is small, and will be easily provided for by the sinking fund.

The whole amount of the State debt is $26,226,434.90, as follows: Bonded debt, $21,132,000; treasury notes in circulation, $3,329,828.90; coupons unpaid, $1,156,183; temporary loans, $608,423.--The whole amount of State treasury notes issued is $5,235,075.05. Of these $1,905,246.15 have been funded or otherwise withdrawn from circulation, leaving the above amount in circulation, of which $2,145,043.90 are of small denominations, and unfindable.
