H. HOWARD, Treasurer.

(No. 3.) Report of the Committee of the Senate on manufac

tures, to whom was referred the communication of the State Geologist, relative to salt springs and the salines of the state.

Your committee beg leave to report, that having bestowed on the above subject, a portion of that attention which its magnitude requires, they have adopted the following conclusions :

1st. That an act ought to be passed by the legislature immediately, making an appropriation sufficient to enable the geological corps to progress with the improvements that have been already commenced at Grand and Tittabawassa rivers, and to pursue them to a final result, and also to enable said corps to continue such examinations of our salt springs in general, as the legislature shall direct.

2d. That some proper person ought to be authorized to take charge of the lands attached to said springs, and prevent, as far as may be, the loss of timber on them by intruders or trespass.


3d. That as the lands attached to the salt springs, are at present wholly unproductive to the state, and from the waste of timber that is committed on scme of them, there is danger of their value being reduced, and the examination of the State Geologist will soon enable bim to determine what portion of those lands will be necessary for the manufacture of salt-that the state should memoralize Congress and ask the privilege of selling such of the salt springs lands as will not be required for supplying fuel or other conveniences in the manufacture of salt.

4th. That of the seventy-two sections belonging to the salt springs, there have been forty-live sections located—iwenty-six of which have been confirmed by the general government, and there is yet of said sections to be located, and less than one year to do it in ; il is therefore very necessary that there should be vigilance used on the part of the state officers to make those locations in due time, otherwise the lands will be forfeited.

Your committee would further report, that as the reference of this subject to them plainly indicates that the Senate fully anticipate the manufacture of salt and its transportation to its destined market--they have been led to take into consideration the saline district of the state, and to some reflections upon the probable advances that will be wanted for the general accommodation of the inhabitants of the country, and upon a plan for obtaining the means of opening and improving those communications.

Your committee are of opinion, that from recent examinations, the saline or salt bearing rock, is found in the northern part of the
