Mr. Vance, from the committee on Salines, made the following re-

port, viz:

The committee on Salines to which was referred the petition of sundry

citizens of Vermilion county, praying the aid of the General Assembly in the completion of the bridge across the Big Vermilion river, on the state road from Vincennes to Chicago, which said road crosses said river, have had the same under consideration, and make the following

REPORT: Your committee find the quantity of lands reserved for the use of the Vermilion Saline to be twenty-four thousand eight hundred and sixty-nine acres; of which, according to the Auditor's report, twentythree thousand nine hundred and ninety-eight acres of the above has been sold, for which there has been paid into the State Treasury by the citizens of Vermilion county the sum of thirty thousand, seven hundred and two dollars and eighty-three cents, leaving a balance in the Treasury, after all appropriations, out of monies already from the sales of said lands are paid up, three thousand, two hundred and twen1y-nine dollars and twenty-five cents. Your committee also, find by reports of the Auditor and Register of State Lands at Vermillion Saline, that there is remaining unsold of said reserve, eight hundred and eighty acres. Of said unsold lands some of your committee knowing and others presuming said lands to be of an inferior quality, would recommend the State relinquishing them to the county of Vermilion for the purpose of building a bridge across the Big Vermilion river, where the state road from Vincennes to Chicago crosses the same. Your commitlee are of opinion that a bridge across the Big Vermilion is by no means one of an entirely local nature in its benefits, but a work in which the pecple of the whole State are interested, and its importance is every day more apparent by the increased travel from the souih to the north, and from the north to the south.

Your committee would therefore recommend the relinquishment of all the surplus lands, together with the money in the hands of the Re. ceiver, should there be any, to the county of Vermilion, for the purpose of building a bridge across the Big Vermilion river, where the state load from Vincennes to Chicago crosses the same.

Your committee therefore report a bill entitled

"An act appropriating the residue of the Vermilion Baline Lands to the county of Vermilion, for the purpose of building a bridge across the Big Vermilion river,"

Which was read, and
Ordered To a second reading.

“An act to incorporate the President and Trustees of the Jerseyville Academy,"

Reported the same back with an amendment,
Which was read, and
Concurred in.
Ordered, That said bill be read a third time.

Mr. Warren, from the select committee to which had been referred the bill from the House of Representatives entitled,

“An act declaring certain streams therein named navigable,”
Reported the same back with an amendment,
Which was read, and
Concurred in.
Ordered, That said bill be read a third time as amended.
On motion of Mr. Warren,
The rule of the Senate was dispensed with, and
Said bill was read a third time by its title, and
Passed.
On motion of Mr. Whiteside of Pope,

The title of said bill was amended by inserting the words “in Pope county,” after the words “therein named.”

Ordered, That the title be as amended, and that the Secretary inform the House of Representatives of the passage of said bill and ask their concurrence in the amendments of the Senate thereto, and to the title thereof."
