Mr. E. Cornell offered the following resolution:

Resolved, That the committee on finance having considered the Assembly bill levying a tax of three-sixteenths of a mill for continuing the work on the extension of the Chenango canal, find that there was in the treasury, on the 1st day of April, 1867, an unexpended balance, applicable to this work, of $116,901.17; and the amount to be realized from the tax of 1866 will add about $285,000—making an aggregate amount of $405,901.17, applicable to said extension during the current year.

The committee are of the opinion that this sum will be sufficient, if properly administered, to carry on the work through the present year; and, therefore, in view of the large taxation required for State and national purposes, the committee deem it wise to defer this appropriation at this tiine, and recommend that an appropriation be made early in the next session of the Legislature, for the completion of said work; believing that such action will not delay or embarrass the prosecution of the work on such extension of the Chenango canal.
