REPORT AND PETITION.

To the Honorable the Senate and Assembly of the State of California :

The undersigned, managers of the Magdalen Asylum of San Francisco, beg leave to present the following report and petition :

Following the report of January, eighteen hundred and sixty-four, the number of inmates increased so rapidly that the building in Hayes' Valley then occupied was very soon found inadequate for their accommodation, so that, early in eighteen hundred and sixty-five, it became necessary to provide more commodious apartments. To tbis end, an eligible site was purchased in a better locality near the city, and a substantial brick building erected thereon, the grounds fenced, and other necessary improvements made, costing in the aggregate a large sum of money about twenty thousand dollars of which was contributed by persons whose appreciation of this great work of mercy is commensurate with their generous liberality.

The increased pumber of inmates and consequent growing necessities of the establishment, added to the large balance due for the land and improvements above mentioned, leaves the institution heavily involved, and renders aid from your honorable body imperatively necessary if this beneficent work of charity and reformation is to be continued.

The field of usefulness is daily being enlarged, and the management can plainly see the necessity very soon of adding to the capacity of the present buildings, thereby incurring additional outlay of money.

At the last session of the Legislature the usual appropriation was withheld, and the institution, being without endowment or revenue from any source, is left to depend solely upon the means derived from the sale of needle-work executed by the inmates and the contributions of the charitable, which form but å slender basis for the maintenance of such an establishment.

The following tabular statement exbibits summarily the number of persons admitted to the institution, the date of admission, age, place of nativity, and the disposition of each :
