The public debt, on the 4th of March, 1853, amounted to the sum of $69,129,937 27, and was subsequently increased to liquidate the debt of Texas, by the sum of $2,750,000; which gives the public debt at, $71,879,937 27. It has since been reduced, up to the 15th day of November 1856, the date of the Register's last report, to the sum of $30,963,909 64. See statement No. 3. In making this reduction, the sum of $40,916,027 63 has been paid for the principal thereof, and $4,609,882 31, for premium on portions of it redeemed, before maturity, saving the sum of $14,606,441 39 by paying in advance, and leaving the public debt, on the 15th day of November 1856, $30,963,909 64, as per statement No. 3, parts 1 and 2.

In addition to the public debt, as above stated, there is due under treaties with various Indian tribes, payable on time, the sum of $21,066,501 36, as per statement No. 4 of this report. This debt, as it becomes payable, constitutes an item of annual expenditure, and is estimated for, by the Interior Department. It is an incident, growing out of the extinction of the Indian possessory title, to the public lands, and is a charge on the annual sales. Besides this debt, the United States have invested money in stocks, for several of the tribes, to the amount of $3,511,624 08, and hold the principal of the Smithsonian fund, amounting to $515,169, under the act of the 7th July 1838, in stocks for that institution, as per statement No. 5. The United States having made these investments for the Indians, and of the Smithsonian fund, annually provide for the payment of the interest, which interest is or is not received on the stocks. The arrearages of the interest appear, in the tables, to the amount of $120,704 74 on the stocks held for the Indians, and $437,731 92 on the stocks of the Smithsonian fund. Statement No. 6 gives the balances of appropriations of trust or special funds, on the books of the treasury, at the close of the fiscal year 1856. Statement No. 7 gives the stocks belonging to the United States, in the Dismal Swamp, Chesapeake and Delaware, Chesapeake and Ohio and Louisville and Portland, canals.

The estimated receipts for the fiscal year 1856, with the actual receipts of the first quarter, and the balance in the treasury on the 1st of July, 1855, were $86,850,710 27; and the actual receipts with the same addition $92,850,117 47, being an excess over the estimates of $5,999,407 20.

The customs, actual and estimated, were $59,085,238 28, and the receipts $64,022,863 50.

The lands, actual and estimated, were $8,000,000, and the receipts $8,917,644 93.

Miscellaneous, actual and estimated, were $833,495 98, and the receipts $977,633 03.

The estimated expenditures for the fiscal year 1856, were $71,226, 846 91, and the actual expenditures $72,948,792 02, being $1,721,945 11, in excess of the estimates.

It will be seen, from an examination of statement No. 1, that the sum of $12,776,390 38 was expended during the year, in payment of interest, premium and redemption of the public debt, making the expenditure upon all other objects, $60,242,401 64; the estimated expenditure for interest, premium and redemption of the public debt, being $10,301,009 71, and the payments $2,475,390 67 more than the estimate, making the expenditures upon other objects, less than estimated.
