Mining Claims and Water Rights.

The Trustees of the Library bave been desirous of procuring complete sets of the Law Reports of all other States, in which they bave succeeded as well as could have been expected, as it is almost impossible to procure the early reports. Since our last report we have added the Delaware Reports to the Library, and we now bave all the Law Reports that have been published in the United States, with the exception of ten volumes; and California cun boast having one of the best Law Libraries in the United States. It is true many other libraries may have a greater number of books, but an examination of their catalogues will show that they are made up of old editions of Law Treatises, and Acts, and Journals of State Legislatures, whicb are but of little value.

Of the miscellaneous books purchased during the years eighteen buvdred and sixty-six and eighteen hundred and sixty-seven, a large proportion are scientific works, among wbich are many valuable books on mining. Considerable additions bave also been made to the historical dopartment, particularly California history. Now that every department of science and literature is well represented in the Library, particular attention should be given to the collection of books on California, as our Library should contain every one written about our own State.

A catalogue, arranged alphabetically by authors, and also according to subjects, bas been printed and will be found useful to members of the Legislature and others for reference.

All books added to the Library since the catalogue was printed are catalogued in manuscript, both alphabetically and according to subjects, so that no difficulty is experiened in ascertaining wbat books are in the Library.

Since the adjournment of the last Legislature an additional room has been fitted up and is now used for library purposes.

The Library is insured for the sum of seventy-five thousand dollars ; the premium on this insurance was paid out of an appropriation made by the last Legislature for that purpose. The policies expire in July next, and further appropriation will be necessary for the next two years.

The amount of money in the Library Fund at the date of the last report of the Trustees, was six thousand nine hundred and four dollars and two cents. Since that time the Secretary of State has paid in seven thousand three hundred and thirty-one dollars and fifteen cents, and from members of the Eighteenth session of the Legislature, six hundred dollars-total, fourteen thousand eight bundred and thirty-five dollars and seventeen cents. Of this sum there has been paid for books, ten thousand four hundred and ninety-three dollars and seventy-two cents; for binding, six hundred and ninety-two dollars and twenty-five cents; for freight on books, four bundred and forty-six dollars and sixty cents; for magazines and the Sacramento Union, two hundred and four dollars; for rent, six hundred dollars; for shelving and furniture, five hundred and forty dollars and fifty-tbree cents—total paid out, twelve thousand nine hundred and seventy-seven dollars and ten cents, leaving a balance of one thousand, eight hundred and fifty eight dollars and seven cents.

The Legislature, at the last session, made an appropriation for rent, for shelving and furniture, and for postage, expressage and contingent expenses, but as we could not use said appropriations until the commencement of the eighteenth fiscal year, it was necessary to pay all such expenses that accrued prior to July first, eighteen hundred and sixty. six, out of the Library Fund, except a portion of tho rent for which an appropriation had been made.
