To the Senate now in session :

The select committee, to whom were referred certain communications from the states of New York, Connecticut and Kentucky, on the subject of the Public Lands, which accompanied the special message of the Governor to the Senate, of the 13th of October instant, having had the same under consideration, beg leave to report.

That they regard the subject as of pre-eminent inportance, both as it respects the principles of justice and good faith, as well as the vast amount of property involved; still they deem it unnecessary to present their own views at length, inasmuch as a very able and elaborate report on this subject was made to the Legislature at its last session, and printed in the Journal of the Senate; in the general views and conclusions of which, your committee most fully acquiesce.

Such is the coincidence of views, exhibited in the several reports and resolutions from the states above mentioned, that your committee deem it sufficient to select two only of the resolutions from the State of Kentucky, which, in their opinion, are declaratory of the true doctrine and policy in reference to this subject; which resolutions are in the following words, to wit: .

1. “Be it resolved by the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, That the Public Lands of the United States are not, of right, the property of the particular States in which they lie, nor that of the people of such States, and therefore the Congress of the Unite:1 States ought not to cede such lan:ls to such States or any of them, or to appropriate such Lands for any purpo:39 whatever, but in behalf and for the benefit of a?l the States."

2. “Resolve:], That the National debt being now paid off, all moneys arising froin the sales of the Public Lands after defraying the expenses incident to such s.ales, ought to be distributed among the several States according to the federal numbers of cach State."

Your committee therefore recom:nend the adoption of the following resolutions :

Resolve:1, by the Senate and Ilouse of Representatives, That they fully concur with the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky in the views set forth in their resolutions above recited.

Resolved, That a copy of the foregoing report and resolution, be forwarded by the Governor to each of our Senators an: Representatives in Congress, an:1 also to the Governors of t!12 several States in the 'Union, with a request to lay the saine before thcir respective Legislaturcs.

A. G. DANA, for Committee.
