A Table, Showing the Result of Value Lent to the State.
General Fund, whence all Revenue is derivable; consisting of the Total Natural Agency, Capital and Industry, at the command of the Nation, divided into four equal portions, whereof respectively each Individual is supposed to possess a share, proportionate to his Wealth. Of this stock, the only part applicable to the purpose of a National Loan, is the transferable or floating value, capable of acting as capital.
|I. yielding||revenue||consumable by the proprietor himself.||These three portions yield but two of revenue; portion II. being absolutely extinct.|
|II. yielding||nothing; being lent to, and consumed by the state||revenue.|
|III. yielding||revenue||transferred to, and consumable by, the lenders of Portion II.|
|IV. yielding||revenue||applicable to any purpose.|
A table, showing the comparative condition of France, Great Britain and Ireland, and the United States of America, in respect to Population, Debt, and Taxation, at the close of the year 1831.
|Britain and Ireland||24,304,000||3,756,802,723||247,075,200|
|* These two sums only include the public debt and revenue of the Federal Government, at the period referred to, and not the debts and revenue of the different States of the Union. To show the comparative condition of the people of the United States, with those of France and Britain, in respect to debt and taxation, at the time mentioned, it would be necessary to add the debts and revenue of the respective States, which, however, at this time, we have no means of doing.
