THE FINANCES OF THE REBELLION.
"The Report of the Secretary of
the Treasury will exhibit in detail the operations of that department. It will
be seen with satisfaction that the credit of the government securities remains
unimpaired, and that this credit is fully justified by the comparatively small
amount of accumulated debt, notwithstanding the magnitude of our military
operations.—(Extract .from JEFF DAVIS'S Message.)
