Sylvanus Miller, Kiq. iu behalf of the committee appointed lor that purpose, reported a circular, addressed to the citizens wberenpon an order was passed, that the same be accepted and published. CIRCULAR. SIR, The directors of " The New - York In stitution Air the Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb," are impelled be a sense ot dutv. and a dture to promote the welfare of those unfortunate persons committed to their superiuteuding care, to make this aLial to a charitable acd be nevolent public. To their drug are entrusted some of ih moet interesting, innocent, and helpless children of the human family. Depri ved of the sens of hearin:, and the power ot speech, they possess all those seusibilities and af - IfcCtxins hll tho?e feeliogs and sympathies, which aaorn, un ni ana Uignily society. W ithotit the fostering car of beeevolent instruction, nnd the stsudy and kind supervision of endeann; friends, inese matt unguisn in ignorance, remain the moonments of negligence, of inattention, and oftentimes, of wretchedness. The period of instruction to man, as far as the elementary prin ciples of learning are concerned, is limited to the earn number of years, whether the pupils are favored by mvideece with, or are deprived of the full power of utterance and locution. .TLfr Deal and Demh,n thoe principles and ideas. which elevate man, should not be permitted to attain that period, when exertion and instruction would be useless end unnrofitaHo. Thev mu,t be taught in early hT their leader minds mut be nurmred, and improved by moro than pa - renof attentioo, solicitude, and care. It is but a few years since the benevolence of man has been applied with active ingenuity, in forming systems of instruction for these unfortunate members of society ; and the first emys were coauuercd, as an experiment, of doubtful issue. Hut experience soon demonstrated the charm ing consequences of the benign undertakings, and the mind of man, deprived of what was considered essential to its successful improvement, developed resources and powers, which at once delighted and astonished Uie nio.t sanguine. It was discovered, thist the privation of speech and of hearing, did not, in any sensible degree, impair the elastic qualities ol Uie human intellect ; and the advancement of the pupils gave the most choering evidences, that in their iuitructinn, their preceptors ami patrons, were to bo rewarded by the most sati'laclory results. huttu' ions for the instruction of the "Deaf and Dumb," were multiplied, aud their success has been commensurate with the exertion aud labor brstowed upon a subject of such deep and vital importance. The establishment ofinstitu lions of this character, in our country, nee of re - ccntdjte ; and their nature and usefulness may not have been duly appreciated by enlightened America but duiroos at ail times to better the condition of man, and emulous to further Ibose objects which ar so ultimately connected with desirable exntence ; in imitation ol those philan thropists who have manifested to much anxiety, and have been remunerated by so much success, in their application to these objects ; the institu tion otcr which we are the directors, tras found. ed in the bumble, but anxious hope, that with the aid ot lb chantable, and under the di; en salion of au over - ruling providence, it would be' come instrumental in restoring to usefulness, and rational enjoyment, those who have bet n visited by (what has been deemed) Ihe most serious calamities. In Ihe prosecntiou of their arduous duties, and to give th mwt extrusive usefulness to their institetion. they rely, with well - grounded ctHifi - taice, upon the liberal countenance and muoilicrnt dispvition of their fcllow - Citix'ns ; 'e a ducendug and rhsritahl public, they apply, f - ra "portion of th good things of this life," whrrehy, thry may i the better enabled, to ac complish the htud.ibl purposes of instructing the Deotaed Uamxs. To those who hive never witnessed the pro gress of impmv - ment in the minds of such as are depvied of the sense of hearing, and the organ, or power of speech, there may appesr to be risurmounuoie aimcunics ; tnucro, without witn sdntr their progress, or examm mg profoundly th faets, the attempt and sm - tern an pear paadosu L KUt ror our cncotir - asrement renlity and ees nple are before us. To give permanent and expensive euect to our wannest wishes, and most anxious pursuit, we ask with earnest soloeitat ion - . the patronage of a discerning and benevolent people. In an est bluhment recently formed, under circumstance well calculated to advance the objects of bumanitv in its most interesting, u well as most innocent character, it U frndlr hoped that there w II be telt m stong. i nd genera', disposition to fur her the (Treat oljects of improvement to uch as are placed u'.ilrr t. cir rharjre, nd thus enable those "atflic - ed" children, to become useful as el ei ornu,entil - to be the monuments of bene - vol - nee. the evidence of the liberality and atrouagr, of our beioved countrymen. " . In the institutions ercranieed'ir lion ofiAe Dtaf mod h,m" there appear eo have been two systems adunted t end uMiu other discoveries of e recent date, svme differ - eiice ef opinion exists as te the juat prcfereece a limited and temporary experience, seems to yield to the method of comnaunictioA by sound as well a token. . The director of " Thp New - Totk Institution for the Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb," have engaged a preceptor of ackwow lodged a - bilities, of kind and affable demeenoc, whose assiduous attention will be devoted to the in mediate instruction of pupils put sasder bis charge. The director feel ereat confidence in bis qusS.tcaUons and fitness, and aettcipate reasonable success, in the education ot sucn aa are placed under hi supervision and in - struction. It is the desicrn of the directors of this in stitution, to cumbine all that Is practicable iu the method of teaclting their pupils I to unite, as far as is possible, the sinrle. with the Ore himdej alphabet. , Ihe celebrated watson, who teaches a school of the u Dtaf and Dumb" near London, is considered as the most able preceptor of tne present age and bu system will be adopted in the government of the " New - York Institution for the Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb." Th pup i will be instructed in sensible ob jects, by means of pictures, or representations of nature, lacutiar to their ?iw ; end, as they advance, in the knowledge of the connexion, and tiguilicatioa of letters, to tbeir oses ia spelling aud reading, and the power of arithmetical nam tiers, combinations, 'and actual calculation. By means of this knowledge, they will be enabled to read print and manuscript, and to per form, with accuracy and expedition, the various duties ol oooic - iteepuig, and to do ail that is re quired in the general course of business. A Chun, having acquired the preceding attain meots, can, with great facility, aud will, with more than ordinary correctness, communicate tne objects ol errauds and messages, on a common slate provided for the purpose, return an swers, make bargains, receive and pay money, and generally pci fbrm all that is required ot' a y null Jul agent. Vj a natural and usual progress of young minus, they become capable of acquiring abstract ideas, and the principles of ethics. Their con dition and improvement soon enable them to know that they owe great duties to their bod aod society, and to comprehend also, that they are accountable, as well as rational creatures. Haviug acquired the necessary information. and arrived at tho cuitomary age, they may be apprenticed, or employed in any of the useful arts of mechanical, agricultural, or other pursuit?, where the senses of touch and sight are particularly necessary they may acquire the knowledge of sculpture, painting and drawing, and the highest attainments ia the graphic art the trades of a tail - maker, tay lor, printer, aud cordwamer, Kc. as well as those of a farmer, aidener, or other useful and respectable occu pstions. in cases where th scholar shows the power of utiog or improving the vocal organs, and where his friends dc;ire it, he will be instructed in ob taining the power and iulluenc of articulation an J speech. It will readily be perceived, that it is not pos sible at this time, to go into a more full devel opment of the manner of instruction, and the reasons ot its performance and adoption but actuated by a strong desire to be useful in their undertakings, the directors have deemed it their duty to apply to a liberal - minded people, for aid, in the lurt iterance ol an object of such concern and imporUiicc. 1 he people of these Uuited States, are cha racterised by generous, noble and benevolent feelings ; and it may therefore be anticipated, that a liberal disposition will be manifested in tht support of ao institution, tbo benefits and u Ulity of which, cannot be too highly apprccia. ted. ' While the virtuous efforts of the nntion are actively employed in UleamcT"'(Jfy4p, libernlity is still viaib iblr extetnimg itseji to a great variety of praiso - wor my objects, we call the attention and solicit pa. tronage, to a subject inferior to noo in interest and usefulness.

By order of the directors, AMt,. L. MITCHILL, President JOUS B. SCOTT, SecreUry. Copy of a letter from Dr. Samuel L. Mitchill, te Thomas M. Evans, Esq. of New - Brunswick, (N.J.) Aev Tork, July IliA, 1C18 Uear sir, I this day received your letter of July 1st, irking what is th scientific name and tystemn tic place of Ui sailors dolphin, and wherein that creature differs from th cetaceous dulphin, or aotpiiin oi ine ancients : My conception of the matter is, that the for mer m m reality a eomnhtne and e nth. breath. ing by gills j whUe th latter it the dolphin r roper, respirmg like land animals, by lutiss. It is one of the concerns and duties of science to correct vulgar errors. It is a vulgar error to call a eorgpntne a aAphtn. 1 fo - l a pleasure ia pointing out to yon the ra dical sum ttsenlial diOcreoces between the two.
