Of the Committee on the Judiciary, on the bill entitled “An act authorising the appointment of a supreme court commissioner to reside in the village of Cortland, in the county of Cortland.”
Mr. Robinson, from the committee on the Judiciary, to which was referred the bill entitled “An act authorising the appointment of a supreme court commissioner to reside in the village of Cortland,
in the county of Cortland,
That the bill, as its title imports, provides for the appointment of a supreme court commissioner to reside in the county of Cortland.
The necessity and propriety of the passage of the bill referred to the committee, will be found in the fact, that no one of the judges of the court of common pleas of that county, is of the degree of counsellor in the supreme court; and that no supreme court commissioner resides therein, and no person authorised to perform the duties of a justice of the supreme court at chambers, resides therein, or within thirty miles of the county town of the county.
Of the Select Committee on the petition of the Supervisors of the county of Erie.
Mr. Fillmore, from the select committee to whom was referred the petition of the supervisors of the county of Erie,
That they have had said petition under consideration; and it appears from the facts stated in said petition, the truth of which the committee have no reason to doubt, that the jail in said county was erected at an early period, and is now much too small to answer the purposes for which it was erected. That its internal arrangements are bad, and cannot be remedied without entirely re-building it; and that its location is not convenient. They therefore pray for the passage of a law authorising them to sell and convey the same, together with the lot on which said jail is situated, and apply the proceeds towards the erection of a new jail, to be erected on the lot upon which the court-house stands in said county, in rear of the same, and also for authority to raise by tax such further sum as may be necessary, not exceeding three thousand dollars, to build and complete such jail.
Believing that it would be for the interest of said county to build such new jail, instead of attempting to repair the old one, and that a new jail is necessary, the committee have come to the unanimous conclusion that the prayer of said petitioners is reasonable, and ought to be granted, and have directed their chairman to report a bill accordingly, and ask leave to introduce the same.
