[Entered at the Postofict a! Alexandria, Virginia, as
IVesiiTH Kiimativ Asylum.
This institution has never been under
more efficient management than at present;
no Superintendent, since the establishment
of tbo asylum, has bad a clearer and moro
comprehensive understanding of the pur
believe-- in tho beneficial agencies of light
poses of such u charily than Dr. Conrad. He
aud air?in the sanitary cllects of thorough
ventilation, healthy exercise and .-,u?gestive
associations. With this view, modifications
have been made in many of tho old arrange?
ments, to assure the sun bath, the full play
of the balmy breezeb ol" this season of the
year; innocent exercises on the green sward
under the shade of the stately trees ; ami in
other modes where stricter restraints have
to be observed in certain of the patients.
Through every department this idea is being
carried out, as far as available means will
allow. It, is to be regretted that the re?
sources of the institution are loo meagre for
the work thai ought to be done. As it is,
the sanitary arrangements, the modifications
in the interest of economy, comfort aud con?
venience, and lo aid in ihe improvement of
the mental condition of the unforiuuates
committed to the institution, are such as to
greatly promote tlie- beneficial purposes of
this great charity.
The capacity of the institution will com?
fortably accommodate about 550 patients.
To thai number the present buildings should
be iimited. But there are at. this time 631,
of whom ;Jlb are males ami 316 females. In
rooms where there should he four, there are
sometimes sis or eight?comfortable it is
true, but more crowded than they should
be, in the judgment of the superintendent.
There are applications on hie for the ad?
mission of 317?of whom 154 are males and
ItiLi females. There are, however, no vacant
rooms or beds, according to the report for
the month of April. About two-third.s of
the patients now in the asylum are incura?
ble, and about an average of one-third of
those admitted are iucurable. And as the
death rale does r.ot equal the number of in?
curables committed to the institution each
year, it must necessarily follow that it will
net be many years before the present ca?
pacity cf tho buildings will he com?
manded by those who are incurable.
This is ;> serious phase of iho demands
of, the insane unou tho care of
the State. In some oilier commonwealths
provision is made at the asylums for 1,000
patients, and this ought to be and will bo
the policy of Virginia, as .-oon as the condi?
tion of che treasury will allow it. The pol?
icy of the management is to givo preference
to State patients rather than pay patients?
as it is a State charity, designed primarily
to provide for those whose friends may not
he able to provide lor them.
To pass through the various wards and
enclosures where these unfortunates are
confined, is to awaken the sympathy of
every one touched with a feeling of human?
ity. While neatness aud care aro observable
iu eery department, and in all the appoint?
ments, the fact that one stands in the pres?
ence of shattered reason and the wreck and
ruin of once bright intellects, impresses
the necessity for this bene?cent institution,
v : |he largest liberality on the part of the
commonwealth in providing for the needs
of those who, from whatever cause, may be
consigned to its walls for treatment. Wo
tin-; ;ho lime will soon come when no one
with "mind diseased" will ask in vain for
admittance. It is one of the most
sacred duties that can be imposed
upon people to care for its alllicted
and helpless?a duty that cannot be shirk?
ed or grudgingly discharged. All that the
means appropriated will allow is being done
to carry out. tho humane purposes of the in?
stitution. The superintendent is keenly
alive to Iiis responsibilities?is familiar with
the cause and condition of every patient's
ailmet't?with every department and nook
and corner of the vast establishment, and is
intelii.'tently and wisely using the authority
vi it b v. inch he has been invested, for the
alleviation and improvement of those who
have been, or may be, entrusted to his
charge. Ii affords us pleasure to be thus
able to testify, und give the assurance to the
friends of those who have been bereft of
reason that they are under hind, intelligent
and sagacious treatment, both as to mind
