PRIMARY SCHOOL LANDS. It will be seen that the sales of these lands for the last fiscal yeai exceed the sales for the year 1850, by about sixty-seven per cent.

Annexed is given a list (marked "A") of the comparative annual sales of these lands.

Statement “C” shows the condition of the accounts with the County Treasurers, for moneys received by them under Act No 217, of 1849.

UNIVERSITY LANDS. The amount of these lands sold during the last year, is 1,257.56 acres; balance unsold, 21,951.14 acres.

Statement «B” shows the comparative annual sales of these lands.

STATE BUILDING LANDS. Sales of lots in Lansing, $774 00.

SALT SPRING LANDS.

No sales have been made of these lands within the last year.

ASYLUM LANDS. Sales 478.20 acres. The sales of these lands have been small, as was anticipated in my last annual report.

ASSET LANDS.

The sales of these lands amount to $7,943 23, a part of which were sold for land warrants. These lands have been dead property on our hands for a long time, and there being outstanding a much larger amount of land warrants than there are Internal Improvement lands to redeem, it was thought advisable to receive these warrants in payment.

INTERNAL IMPROVEMENT LANDS. Of the 492,504.41 acres of these lands selected and approved there have been sold 448 901.51 acres, leaving a balance of 43,522.90 acres. Of the 7,495.51 acres which the State was entitled to select, November 30, 1850, James Davis selected, under Joint Resolution No. 36, of 1849, 1,600 acres, which were confirmed, and the balance has been selected near Grand Traverse Bay, by Mr. A. S. Wadsworth, under the directions of the Governor, during the last fiscal year, but have not yet been confirmed.

SWAMP LANDS.

By an act of Congress, approved September 28, 1850, the State is to receive all the swamp lands within lier borders. The Surveyor General is employing the spare time of all the force in his office, in preparing the lists of these lands. Lists of those lying in the Grand River and Saginaw districts have already been forwarded to the Registers of said districts, and as soon as returned to him, will be sent to the proper department at Washington. It is estimated that the quantity of these lands will exceed 4,500,000 acres, a very considerable portion of which are good.

Arrangements have been made with the Surveyor General to far. nish the maps of these lands as soon as the lists are completed and confirmed by the department at Washington. All of which is respectfully submitted.
