The majority of the committee to whom was referred the petition of the President and Directors of the Central Asylum for the Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb at Canajoharie,

It will be seen by a reference to the documents of the Senate, No. 235, of the year 1830, that an application similar to the present, was then addressed to the Legislature, by the same institution. It was then referred to the Secretary of State, who made an elaborate report to the Senate.

The committee having looked into that report and concurring entirely in the views and conclusions of the Secretary, deem the reasoning of the report so ample and satisfactory, that they have not felt themselves justified in attempting a new argument upon the subject. The committee therefore, ask leave to refer the Senate to that report, and in accordance with the views contained in it, to submit the following resolutions: (Senate No. 62.]


Resolved, That it is not expedient to attempt to support two separate institutions for the instruction of the deaf and dumb, in this State.

Resolved, That the Legislature ought not to make any appropriation for the erection of permanent buildings, shops or other fixtures, for the Central Asylum of the deaf and dumb at Canajoharie.

Resolved, that the petitioners have leave to withdraw their petition.
