Whereas, A memorial addressed to Congress by the leading representatives of the commercial interests of the port of New York represents that the condition of the principal entrance to the said port, as indicated by the frequent striking of vessels of large draught on Sandy Hook bar, for many months past, and lately demonstrated by careful soundings, has become a matter of anxious concern involving the welfare of the city of New York and the existence of vast interests centering there; that the soundings lately made show that the natural action by which the channel had been deepened to a maximum of twenty-five feet at low water has been reversed and a shoaling has now set in by which the depth has been seriously decreased; that while this process of filling the channel has been going on the commercial necessity of the time has compelled the building of vessels larger and of greater draught to meet the demand for cheaper and quicker transportation, and that, if the port of New York cannot receiv such vessels, its commercial supremacy is seriously impaired; and
