NOTE—The Treasury Department was established in 1789. The Secretary superintends the fiscal concerns of the government, and is required to report to Congress annually the state of the finances: He recommends such measures as he thinks proper for improving the condition of the revenue. This department comprises the offices of Secretary, two Comptrollers, five Auditors, the Register, the Treasurer, and the Solicitor of the Treasury.

The revenue is chiefly derived from duties on imports, the sale of public lands, post offices, lead mines, &c. The revenue on imported goods is the most important.

One great source of revenue to the United States is the public lands, consisting of tracts of territory ceded to the general government by the several states; of lands in Louisiana, purchased from France; and those in Florida, acquired by treaty from Spain.

A great portion of this land is occupied by the Indians, who are considered as proprietors of the soil, till the goverment extinguish their title by purchase.

By the Convention of France, of the 3d of April, 1803, the United States paid for
