Aa charity Is the brightest Jewel in the diadem of individual virtue, so i9 it the crowning glory of a great State. We look with profound pride upon the three charitable institutions In and near this city the Blind and Deaf and Dumb Institutes and the Lunatic Asylum. We have had on hand, for a number of days, the reports for the past year of the above-named charities, but the press of other matter upon our columns, and the want of time, has prevented the attention we now liestow : TheBlinri Institute. The present class is, by far, the largest ever in the Institution larger, in fact, than the building was ever intended to accommodate. From the report of the Superintendent, Dr. Edward Lea, we learn that "the number won d have leen still greater had there been anv nrovisions for the transporta tion of the indigent blind of thp State to this place." The Doctor also informs us that he is constantly receiving letters fmm hiinH net-sons, or their friends, , making inquiries as to the possibility of . . , 1 , . ivul-t .1 1-.. 1 . f t 1 1 O tlieir oemg aiiiuii-ii k -State's noble charity. They cannot be received from sheer want of room ; yet they should be in the Institute, receiving an "education and being instructed in some useful occupation some light trade so that, on being thrown again upon their own rescources, they could successfully combat in the battle of life, and not he charges upon, in many cases, the unwilling hospitality of relatives and friends. , THK BI.'II.OIXGS are situate on Commerce street, North Jackson. The main one leing a large two-story frame ructure. In which is the parlor, school room, Superintendent's office, sleeping apartments, etc. It is sadly in need of repairs. Immediarely in the rear is the WORK-SHOP. which orierinaly did service as a barn, and but little more expense would be required to make it lietter fitted for the purposes to which it lias been assigned. Here we find the male pupils at work at broom and mattress making, eane-seat- inK chairs, ete. 'Ihere is evidently a want of better facilities more ma chinery. A halt dozen of the new and improved broom machines could be put to good use, instead of theone old-style machine they now have. The import ance of teaching the blind a trade of this character, was most forcibly illustrated to the writer ot this last tall, when in Meridian, where he met a young man, who had been a pupil tit this Institute. We found 1dm at the Travers House with plenty of work; sufficient to warrant the hiriug of a shop. Any industrious blind man can more than make a living at these trades, and should have every advantage of machinery in learning them. If this part of the nlan of the Institute were U-tter under stood by our people, much more could bo saved to the several counties of the State by sending their blind here to be educated ami taught trades thus re lieving the county ot their support during life. One or two counties have tried the experiment with success. THE MORE PRESSING WANTS of the Institute tire tally set forth in the Superintendent's report. Here are some of them: raised letter Text-books, raised globes and maps in the literary department ; in music, an organ, guitars, violins, etc.; in the fe male work department, a sewing ma- eiune; m me mecnanicai in-pimmi'iif, is before suggested, perfect orooia ma chine. NDtREK OF I'IPII-S IN A TTIiNITAN'CE. On the first of January i 1 . there were males, 14 white and " colored females; 17 white making a total of :-:. This number could Iw? increased to loo, if the State would furnish the means. A VERY IMPORTANT SCGGEST10X. We copy, the following from the Superintendent's Report to the Board of Trustees, which explains itself : "You, lien-tlemen, are ail well aware of the decaying condition of the property, and unless soon repaired, parrs of it will in a short time he'tmfit for use. The main building needs a new roof. Two rooms, used as sleeping apartments, tire unfinished. In cold weather they are, if not detrimental to the henl'li of the occupants, very uncomfortable. Our work-shop is in the same condition, the house having been originally used ts a stable and carriage house, bur fences are decayed, and in places f dlen down, rendering any attempt at gardening perfectly useless. To make the repairs that are absolutely neciM,ry would cost..',oll fio To supply musical "instruments, hooks," maps and machinery, for school and the shop, would cost 495 "TO blank-ct of Making a total of !2,5( 00 The I"lr null Itninlt Inst Itote. Dr. J. L. Carter, Principal, is one of the most obliging gentlemen with whom it has lieen our pleasure to meet. Always ready and willina to explain the miniit-urost detail- of the workinof the Institute to visitors, who are always received cordially by himself and most estimable lady; ever' anxious to search out any defect alxiut the premises, the remedying of which might conduce to the benefit of his wards; constantly exercising a jer-soual supervision over them; hence the hnjK'rtauce of carefully examining his ANNUAL REPORT TO THE BOARD OP TRUSTEES, from which we learn that the general health of the Institute has U-eu excellent; the pupils have lieen under Ix tter control and better content, during the past year, than ever before; the discipline is better, and the teachers are more efficient, by reason of greater experience, to fill their res)ee-tive positions, and they evince a zeal worthy of the cause in which they arc engaged. ( 0Il;lXIN'- LABOR WITH EDUCATION is an absolute necessity with this class of unfortunates. There is a mandatory statute that requires the male pupils to be instructed iu sonic useful trade. The paramount importance of this kind of instruction to deaf an I dumb jK-r-ons, no one doubts. Their education witho.it the knowledge of sonc handicraft would be almost futile, Ixi-ause it would leave them dependent. The Institution has a large garden attached, in which the boys are required to work every evening. From it is obtained an ample supply of potatoes and other garden vegetables. The Matron touches the girls all kinds of needle work, m- cluding a knowledge of the use of sew ing machines. Ail 11 le pupils are lauglit to work, and to know the imirtance of earning their living oy "Honest ton. The verv able report of the Principal, from which we largely quote, makes the following suggestions in regard to IM'-KOVE'IEXI-S AND REPAIRS. Another and larger school-room is need ed ; ihey have three classes with a teacher for each, and only two small school rooms. Should a larger one ix' granteti, it could be used for chapel purposes. It is freuuentlv necessary to have all to gether for Ift-turcnniid for Sunday school. l'hev need a shop and tools tor tlie trades; an engine with pumps and washing apparatus attached; another cistern; a night watenman wouiu oc oesnHoic The south side of the building re-auires immediate attention ; the founda tion settling, will maKeu necessary 10 ie;u down a portion ot the wall betore it can tie remedied ; tue Iront gaucry noor mum lie attended to; a new roof is required on the m;iin building, etc. NUMBER OF PUPILS.

The annual report of the officers of which is now betore us. it is a very bdib and exhaustive document. For the present, we shall confine our remarks to tne information therein rurnisnea. DR. WM. M. COMPTON, the Suneriudent, whom every body knows to be among the men best qualified in the United States for the position that he occupies, needs no encomiums at our hands. He has made a most elaborate report to the Board of Trustees full of useful impor tant and statistical miormation. A SUCCESSFUL YEAR. From the narrative part of said report we learn that the past year has been the niwt. successful one in tlie msioi v 01 me Asvlum; a larger number of the -1111 fortunate insane have lieen accommodated ; i.ere have lMfn more recoveries: fewer dentiis; Petter ireneral health; 110 epl demic, and few acute disease of any kind. PATIENTS DISCHARGED AS RECOVERED, Under this head, we cannot do better iimn tn rniotn the doctor: liv reier 1.11UUV wr "J" " . j ence to the table it will be perceived n, ,r ti. Mrtv-ix discharged as re- ...i ..io-hLwn. or one half of them, had been under treatment n-i.- y.n.. vniir: seven, under two r throe vears : one under four years, etc. Now take up the other fact, that we have bad under treatment dur ni? t in vn.ir. three Iiunureu aim J ninety patients. Thirty-six of these I were discharged recovered. Of these I thirty-six, eighteen had been under treatment less than a yesr. I suppose I might write a volume upon the causes, pathology and troatmeut of insanity, and still fail below the power of that table In establishing the fact that insanity ia curable or incurable in the exact, ratio of Its duration. Theories and arguments wrung from the archives of the profession, or generate I in the brain of th scientist, may fail to reach the non-professional mind, but such facts as are presented by the table alluded to, cannot fail to strike hnm to the heart and un derstanding of every man M ho will take the pains to consider mem. ah ium connection, I may say that the records of all other institutions with which I exchange reports, in Europe and America, are in close keeping with ours. It is but tho history of insanity all over the world." MORE Ri OM REQUIRED. Read this earnest appeal of the Superintendent for more room, to enable him to accommodate this unfortunate class those who have failed to gain admission to the benefits of the Asylum. It is not the language of an enthusiast, but the overflowing of a humane heart: "But, it is not my purpose to make an appeal to the instinct of humanity in Mississippi. I know that this is strong enough to meet the demands of every case that is made upon it. As far as emotions of charity are concerned, Mississippi is not wanting. In lHo'i she erected this splendid building for her children of misfortune, and in 1S72, she doubled the capacity of it, and, up to this hour, I say it to the credit of the great heart of the State. I have yet to see the first word of j complaint even from the most ultra political partisan against the appropriation of money to t he care and comfort of our unfortunate insane. But the cry comes up from all parts of the State for more room. It has been my custom to keep tht Asvlum crowded to its fullest ca pacity, consistent with the welfare of the inmates. When one goes out, another comes in. These changes, however, are made very slowly. Death and recovery are the only means by which changes are effected, and inasmuch as nearly all all of our inmates Iielong to the chronic class we have but little prospect for extensive movements of our population during the coming year. Indeed, it appears that we arc like a honeycomb, w ith every cell tilled and sealed up. If it is desirable to view the proposition to enlarge the accommodations for the insane, in its aspect of economy, 1 am prepared, with the figures, to prove that theenlargement is a measureof economy, and that it is absolutely cheaper, in a financial point of view, to have more room for lunatics than is needed, than it is not to have enough. I stated at the outset, that "Christian philanthophy, and th strictest economy in the attairs of the State, unite in demanding an enlargement of Asylum accommodations.' To illustrate: The first patient that was ever admitted into the Asylum is here now. It was a chronic case when admitted. On the 6th day of January, 175, lieforo this report will come to tlie eye of the Legislature, she will have been a charge to the State exactly twenty years. We estimate that the support of each patient costs the State imi per annum that is ?1 oO per week. Two hundred and thiry-four dollars per annum for twenty years amounts to S4,is0. That is a part of the cost of one chronic case. We have many others like it. On the other hand, we ill e-timate the cost cost to the State of (be eighteen who recovered under a year after admission. They were acute cases. I put the average of" their time in the Asylum at six months. A calculation will show that all of these eighteen eases have passed through the Asylum, and are now happilv recovered at a cost to the State of less than .2,(HHl for all of them. The moral is, that if we do not enlarge our Asylum accommodations, so that we may treat and cure the acute cases as they occur, the time will come when we wid be compelled to make much more ample provision for the constantly accumulating chonic insane. Our register of applicants shows that we to-day have xt i ivt 'u-r.ight i.mnl on the list, the friends of many of whom are clamoring for admission. At the usual rale of admission and discharge the last one of these applicants cannot be admitted within the next three years. By that time all of the cases will have become chronic, and will lie numbered with those fixtures about the establishment who will remain here until they shall be removed by death. So that since the law requires us 'to receive patients in the order of their application,' it istoo painfully apparent that we will never le able to admit another acute and probably curable case of insanity occurring among the females of this State until some provisions shall be made for those chroa'e eases already on hand; and thus it will ik, that instead of tilling its full mission, as a curative institution, the Asylum will, unless enlarged, henceforward lie useful only as a place of custody simply n State jail. One of the most disagreeable duties which I have had to perform this year, has been the writing of so many letters of refusal to the friends of insane females. It is acutely painful to be compelled to say 'No' to many of these appeals, but 1 have had no other alternative. If I bad the power, I would cause our house to grow in a night to dimensions capable of giving shelter and protection to every insane person in the State. Some of the letters I have received have lieen written in a spirit of complaint, and it would seem almost ju.-tiliable complaint." The Doctor "is in constcnt receipt of letters from Sheriffs of various counties, who inform him that they have lunatics in jail, and wish to send them to the Asylum. One poor woman dis in the Itankincotmty jail a few weeks ago; Ihe Sherid had made application for her admission into the Asylum. The need of room is more especially required iu tile fern ale lepa rt 1 nei 1 1 . "WHAT CAN BE DONE?" the Superintendent. "Shall we sion, that our indigent , insane- -.will- have to be cared for at public expense anyhow. Whether tho Asylum ia enlarged or not, shelter and food and protection to the lunatics will have to b? furnished by some authority." REPAIRS AND IMPROVEMENTS. During the past year, a most useful addition has been made to the laundry department, by fitting up a very excellent drying room, which obviates the necessity of waiting for Old Sol to put in an appearance. It was added tit a trifling cost, compared with its advantages. Lightning-rods of the most appro veil make have been put upon all the build ings. A great ileal of the fencing has been extended and repaired A great amount of gravel has found it s way from the adjacent creeks to the walks and paths. The flower gardens have been improved, in which several rude fountains have sprung up. THE NL'MItER OK PATIENTS .No. pros.

This Court convened the .regular term of the District, and special term of the Circuit, on Monday last. A large number of minor oflences against the revenue laws have lieen dispo-ed of, mostly by confession of negligence and denial of intentional wrong. The Court being satisfies! of the truth of the acknowledgment, imposed a small fine and cost, with the hope that it would be a sufficient reminder. A numlter of equity causes and bankrupt questions have been heard anil disposed of, but none of any special importance, Vxcepl the one "now before the Court, involving the title to two valuable Yazoo plantations, in which Frud-landcr te G arson are complainants and li. G. Johnston et al. are defendants. Messrs. Harris & George and Mr. Harlow are for complainants, and Judge Jones and Col. Nugent for defendants. From the largp piie of papers and the length of time more than a day -consumed in the reading, we infer the Judge will have soni hard questions to dispose of. We learn that there are a number of other important cases to be heard on the civil docket, but not much of importance on the criminal docket, which speaks well for the observance of the national laws. There is but one jury in atieiidruvv!, and it is composed of intelligent- and reliable gentlemen from different portions of the district, who, so far, have had but little to do, the labor, as usual, being mostly upon the Judge.

Many of the States have more than two lAinatR' Asylums. Dur-iutT thi- past year Tennessee has ortlered the hliiltlinx V two new Asylums, fshe ha.s one alri'iiily at Nashville. Kentucky is also buililiny two new Asylums, mak-ina; four for that tstale. NeHrly all the Northern States are enu:n.i;od in the work of extension. As a dernier retort, the Doctor falls back urxm THK NEXT T.KST THING, in the following laiifitiafre: "Our. crops have lieen sueh failures this year, and our people are so KKr, and beside thta there is sued a elamor in hip very air ilxnit. retivnehmeiit in public expendi tures, that it is hardly probable that the legislature ean be induced to come fully up to the reiuirenieiil of the occasion. At the same time, therefore, that I still insist that the best thing that can hi? done under the circumstances, would be to commence tlie erection of another a-ylum building in another portion of the -t.ite: vet, since lliat seems to lie improbable at this time, I fall back upon the next best thing, and make a decided stand tijion that : Add another wing to tbc lcmale 1I1 parlment 01 tne present. buililiim. It does seem to me that tins is indispeiiMnble. There are applicants conuli on our register al ready to till it. up. This is the cheapest and the nmut speedy nit-ans J relief. Au enlargement of this building will not necessitate the em-nlovment of another set of officers. Costly machinery will not have to be txnifflit. lue same. steam iwwer, neatmg. eixiking, and laundry apparatus will sup- lil v all tlie Ueinanas mane try a new wing, lieside this, I have no doubt but that suitable arrangements could be made with the ellicient Superintendent of the Penitentiary, by which a very great deal of the work can be done by the convicts. ESTIMATE OF FKOPOSEI EXTENSION. " In this connection, I may say that I have consulted Col. Willis, the Architect, on this subject, and he informs me that a very large amount can tie saved to tne Suite in this way. At my request, he hits kindly made a araugm 01 tne pro posed extension, with an estimate of the probable cost, wnieu, in a lew uu., will lie ready for inspection by tlie Standing Committees on Humane and Benev olent Institutions, and any other mem- liers of the legislature wno may aesire to see them. The convicts can make all the brick and the work done upon the Penitentiary building thin year, shows that they have wine good brick-layers and mechanics in wood-worn, as to the exact amount that can be saved to the State by this arrangement, I rec peet-fully refer you to the specifications, drawings and estimates of Mr. Willis, who will take pleasure iu explaining the particulars. Before closing thia subject, and in order that tlie legislature may have a standard of the cost of the erection of asylums for the insane in this country, with which to compare our estimate, I will state, that after an examination of a large number of reports from institutions of this kind, in the United States, I find that the average-cost of the building, per capita, of tlie patients, is about $1,250, for each inmate to be accommodated ; that is, it has been found that an asylum for the insane, intended for one hundred persons, will cost 125,000. The extension which I suggest will give room to seventy-live patients. At the standard cost, this would require an appropriation of $03,7.50. But I am satisfied that if the State will take the matter iu hand, and undertake the job with iU convict labor, the proposed new wing will not cost more than $05,000 a saving of nearly $30,000.
