al f'or the road beyond, int adv'ance of'
opeintg that work. The locomotive g
used weighs twenty-f'our toins, and the ta
ordinary load attached to it, in addi- a
tioni to its own weight, is twelve tons. h
T'his grade htas thus lhr been worked a
with reguiharity and safety. The wvhole
power obtained is ini the ordinary ad. tI
besion of' the driving wheels.e
rTis feait is so far in audvaune of the
somtmonly received opintion in refer- d
an1ce to the capacity of' locomotive en
ines, that it wotul d hardly be credited a
without practical proof of' the felet, It
shiows conclusively that the maxi- 111
mnumt grades on the road, after it shall er
be completed, wvill oppose no serious di
>bstacele to a profitable tratilic. p<
The tunnel is nearly completed, and s'
ivill be in readiness for use in a few C

fthe track are laid west of it. Every d
