Gentleintn In an age like the present, distinguished for so many public charities, it is a mnttar of turcrise that the melancholy condition the eiand IHimb among us has not exote J earlier attention. In many cities of Europe the tender ftelings ol humanity have loog been alive to this subject amnle resource have been opened, and every effort has been employed to rescue those unhap persons Iruiu idleness, ignorance and trrfcifd - nets. To you, gentlemen, it is unnecessary to trace Droeress ol tnose institutions ot mercy, from first partial theories published nearly a ccn tury ago. Through the happy and successful eiperimenls'of Father Vamiu, Mont. Terrase, ilanich, Uaka, Mr. Braidwood, the Abbes L'Euee and iicard, - Dr. Watson, and many others most of their plan of instruction have beeu published on this interesting iul - ject, parti' cularly two volumes by the latter gentleman Watson, of London ; and, no doubt, vou are sufficiently acquainted with their value. In this city. Uie London of America, the most diitin "inshed for charitable societies of any part of th United states, an mstitutiou has been lately formed an J incorporated by our Legislature for instruction oi the Deal and Dumb already above three score of those uuhappy objects have come within the knowledge of tiie persons who now address you : anJ it is confidently believed, that more than ouo huudied of those iuo - acent sufferers are within the bounds of this city, un the protection of your honourable board. Gentlemen, we would appeal to your under standings and judgement, when we lay that more noble and praise worthy institution nerer claimed your attention. We are called by the imperious voice of public example, by the best feelings of humanity, and by the providence of (iod, who points out the plan virtually to open the ears of the Deaf, and in reality to loose the tongues of the Dumb. "If that man who causes but two blades of grass to grow where only one vegetated before, renders more essential service mankind than many politicians," how much more blesed those who are instrumental of cul tivating the human mind, and especially under luch painful and obstinate circumstances as the persons for whom w plead, ol not only render them happy in themselves, as social beings and usuful members of society, but trachiug them the knowledge of their God and th way to Heaven iu tlie light of divine revelation. The Subscription books of the Society have been circulated and are still open, but the sums collected are far, very far short of tbe object contemplated. The directors of the institution look up to you with confidence for immediate and liberal assistance (their school is now in operation.) They do not presume to dictate in what manner you shall help tticui : but they are oersuaded yu will act worthy of yourselves aud will do justice to a subject in which the honour of our City, and the present aud future happiness of so many wretched sufferers are so deeply interested. JUlia U. SLU 1 r, secretary. The Special committee, to whom was refer red a communication from the iJirectors of the N. YorV Institution for th iottrvc f tha Deaf and. Uutno, requesting aid irom the cor poration ia behalf ol said Institution, teg leave to report, That they have given tbe subject all the attention which (heir time and capacity for ievesliffatiog its merits would admit, and hare oe hesitatiou in saying, that if properly patron ized, the Institution for the instruction ol in Deaf and Dumb will become one of the most beneficial and useful establishments in this City. For the purpose of ascertaining the pract icabili and method of instructing these interesting objects, the committee visited the school in company with some or the directors, and wre highly gratified at the progress of the scholars well (s the emulation excited in them by their teacher, to excel each other in thtir stu dies. J u.lgiu from this exhibition of Uie talent displayed by the deaf and dumb, the committee arc tatisfied that thy may not only be taught the rudiments of education, but with attention and perseverance attain a knowledge of many of the higher branches of study. The committee are unable to express th leri - ings of humanity and commiseration excited in them on viewing the wretched condition of these tons and daughters of ignorance, and feel themselves bound by every consideration of propriety to recommend their case to the humane conside ration of the Board, as one or peculiar interest, both as it respects the objects themselves, as well as the public at large. This institution was incorporated by an act of the legislature, on the Iith day of April, 1117, and has been in operation only five weeks. The tch.tol consuls of eleven scholar : three females ani eight males who are taught reading, wri'ing, aud the art of converging by signs ; aod an attempt with some success has beeu made to instruct them to articulate words and thort sentences. Only two of tho scholars pay for their education ; the friends and relations of the others be .ng poor and unable to pay, they are taught gratis. The price of a quarter's school ing i fuel by uie directors, (or those who are abie to pay, at ten dollars, including the neces sary statiotiary, slates, ice. The aunual expense of the pretcnt eslaLii. - hment, although very limi ted in its number, canuol te estimated at lest than 2500 dollars ; for Hit payment of which the directors nave no other resource except the vo luntary donations of the charitable and benevolent. Frequent applications are made for ad mission in the school, by those whose circumstan ce w.ll not permit them to pay the expense of tuition ; but tbe hnauccs ol the institution are at so low an ebb, that it is impossible to admit more than tbe present nanibei ; and even they will be found too many, unless something is don to footer and protect tliem, until efficient aid can be obtained It has been ascertained that more than sixty of these unlortunate beings are now retidenli in this city, the greater part of whom, if It A in their present ignorance, mut sooner or later become chargeable on the public lor their support. I'n der this consideration, is it not the interest of the corporation to foster and encourage this in tlitution, inasmuch as it will not only serve the cause of hnmanity, bnt eventually prevent ae increase ol paupers, and an addition to lh ex penditnr for their support .' Tbe committee have no reason tn doubt that a disposition exists in th board to assist, a far as propriety will warrant, to laodahlean nodsrtatt ing as the one nnder consideration. Thry, therefore, respectfully recommend the adoption of the follow ing resol u lions : Retohed, That th. Institution for the insirnc tion of the Dafand Dumb be permitted to oc cupy, during lh pleasure of this board, a Room in tbe 3d story ol that part of th old Alms luiin reserved for the ucc of the corporation, piovijcd it i oceJ lor no other purpose except lor lue in structioa ef the scholars.

That a donation of 500 be made to aid iustitutioB to aid Ibcm in carrying into effect laudable undertaker, and that a warrant past for said amouut. Resolved, That th committee on thi subject charged Willi the execution of the foregoing retolutiwj. STKi'UEN, 1 JOHN MORUSt, W. F. VAN AMR1XGE.

Another circumstance worth recollection is, that in conse quence of the great value of tlie oil of nutmegs, is often extracted from the nut that are exposed to sale, by which they are rendered of ve little value. To ascertain tho quality of nutmegs, force a pin into them, and if good, however dry they may appear, the oil will be seen coming out all around lh pin, from the compression occasioued in the surrounJiog parts. From the Many Gazette end Dai'y JUvertite. Died, on the 13th inst. in the city of New - York, whither he had gone to consult medical advice, John T. B. Graham, Esq. counsellor at law, in this city, in the thirty - first year of his age. Rarely indeed, has an occurrence of this kind taken place, which deservedly excites such universal sorrow. G - iefof the most pungent character is not confined to his immediate relatives. The venerable man on whose head the almond tree already blossoms the aged matron, whose heart palpitates with anxiety, while surveying her numi - ruiis offspring j and even the heedless giddy youth whose bosom dilates at the nouiid of pleasure all, all unite mourning the early unexpected dissolution this amiable man. If ever there lived a being, who deserved not an enemy, it was Graham. Indeed, he had none, but those created by his hostility to the oppressor. In manners affable and conciliating in morals unblemished in ' conversation frank and candid in compassion to the poor Howard in generosity to his friends open as the day in fidelity to bis promises unexam pledin filial piety in marked attention to the advancement of hi parents' comfort, in genuine and fervent affection to his' other immediate relatives without asupeiiori he readily and warmly attached to him, all who had the honor and the gratification of his society. He was Tt i s s, gsj j i - L - 1 . .J4 - jr' utant, devoted and liberal supporters ot the Third Pres: yterikn Church in this city. Not a member of that numerous and respectable congregation but laments his loss 'with tears of unfeigned and bitter sorrow. Ah Graham ! tftv usefulness was short : but now thou are reapinir its rewards. Thou art removed from an immense circle of mourning friends but we trtibt thou art with God. This feeble and nn perfect tribute to tby virtues is penned by one who Knew tny worm, wnourgeiy expenenceu thy benevolence and svmpathv, who reckons it among the chief felicities ot Ins lite tnt he enjoyed thy confidence and friendship, who prays daily that he may emulate thine excel lence, and who will not cease to think of thee even in the hour of death. The trustees of the 3d Presbyterian congre gation having learned with deep regret of the death of their worthy fi - ieud and trustee, John B. Graham, Esq. have at a special meeting last evening unanimously resolved to wear crape on the left arm for 30 days Alb.ii.y, July 16, 1318. AlAKKIKU, On Thursday, in St. Marks Church, by the FUv.
