Transactions of the American Institute, of the City of New York, for the Year 1858 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Transactions of the American Institute, of the City of New York, for the Year 1858
The undersigned Trustees, in conformity with the Law of May 5, 1841, beg leave to present a report of the acts of the Institute for the year 1858: The American Institute, encouraged by the success which had attended the fairs held in the Crystal Palace during the three pre ceding years, and stimulated by the very liberal act of the corpo ration of the city of New York in putting it in possession of the Crystal Palace, considered it due to the public and the municipal authorities, that an exhibition of unprecedented interest should be provided for the year 1858. With this view, and to fulfill, as far as possible, the objects for which a charter had been granted by the Legislature of the State, an expenditure far beyond the usual limit was ventured upon. A large sum was expended upon machinery and engines, and upon other fixtures, in order that all exhibited inventions in Mechanics, or in the Chemical and Physical sciences, might be presented to the public in actual operation, or fully tested by experiment. It cannot be doubted that this unu sual completeness of preparation would have been followed, had fate permitted, with consequences beneficial to every section of our country.
