Of these 621 miles of road, 126.; miles consist of
double track, aul 76 of Branches. Besides the lt>
Branches embraced in the above statement, there are
live other Branch Rail llouds, already built, or in ,
progress, at the expense of independent companies, j {
which are, or when finished will be, worked by the |
companies above named, measuring 26 miles in j (
length. The proceeds from the working ol these j (
branches go into the above statement of income, ami ' |
the rents, or tolls, paid for the use of them, go into j
the account of expenses. I |
For the purpose of showing the change which has i
been made in the condition and productiveness ol j
these rail roads, during a period ol seven years, we , t
here republish a statement, similar in its character to J ,
the above, which was published by us in the year |
IS 11, showing the state of the same roads at that I.
time. All the roads have within ibis period rocoiv- , j
ed important accessions, in the length or number ol j j
their tracks, and in other improvements. Two oi ,
lliein have undergone a remarkable transformation, i
and are in fact new works, though based on tin
works then existing, viz: the Boston and Portlan i
then 20 miles in length which is connected into the ,
Boston and Maine, 73 miles in length, and the
Charlcstown Branch which is absorbed by the Fitch
burg, and made part of an extended line, embracing ;
several branches in addition to the main road, origin- j :
ally, terminating at Charlcstown, hut now extended
to this city.

prices advanced about 'd. per lb., but dull accounts

about jd. per lb. lower than on til • lltli inst. The
sales of the week ended to day have been 19,230
bales, those of today 40J0 bales, and the market is
pretty steady at the decline noted. The *tock today

Busimss (irncrally.- The advance on Cotton l
which followed our last circular, exercised a very j
depressing influence at Manchester, where matiufac- j
Hirers, finding it impossible to obtain a correspond- !
iug advance on giods and yarn, were obliged to di- j
mini>h the extent of production; and that market re- j
! mains in a dull inanimate condition. Yorkshire buy- (
j ers have been largely in the market for their staple,
land the Woollen Manufacturing Districts wear a
i brighter aspect th in the Cotton. M ney continues i
to be easy of access to those of undoubted credit, but ,
' not otherwise, what are t rined second class hills re
j maining in bail repute. The C i n Market is unin- '
I llueuced by the near approach of duties being levied
on future imports, the e MI itry markets continue tube
well suppled by farmers, and our range of prices for
the next three months will depend upon the extent
of foreign imports on the one hand, but much more '
upon whether or not our own farmers continue to •
bring forward their supplies freely.
CO-The attention ol -nippers and consignees has '
been called, by on •< four leading brokers, to a ree.nt
import of Western New Beei having proved 26 lbs.
short of the quantity citi. d on the h ad.—39 4 lbs.
The parcel was branded "Dowling, Prime Mess

STITT, DAY k CO.
LIVERPOOL, February 25, 1848. j
I The late improvement in Cotton not having been
| followed up by a corresponding advance in Goods and
i Yarns has caused a re-action and a decline of fully
j id. per lb. in our market since the departure of the
' last steamer. On this occasion the low and middle
qualities have been most atfected. Notwithstanding
our reduced stock and the very moderate supply im
mediately expected, the demand has been languid
j and pretty freely supplied and speculation nearly or
quite suspended. The sales for the weekended
j i ust. amounted to 21,840 bales, and for that ended
j this evening they have been 19,230 bales; of the lat
! ter. 2,850 are Upland at 4as{; 8,650 Orleans at 4 Ja6,
with 15 bales at 7d ; 2.470 Alabama and Mobile at
4 aoj, and 200 Sea Island at 7al6d. per lb. Fair
Upland is now quoted 5d.; fair Mobile 5. ! , and fair
Orleans sjd.; Middling and ordinary 4a4.'
per lb. The Spinners and Manufacturers not being
able to find vent for their productions at rates equiva
lent to the rise in Cotton has again checked the con
sumption and induced some who had resumed full
time again to curtail their operations. The stock in
this port is now about 298,000 bales, of which about
160,900 is American Cotton.
The Corn markets show no symptoms of improve
ment, and continue very heavy at about the prices I
! given in our last, except for Indian Corn, which is j
' rather lower, the highest quotation being now 28a
| 20s. 6d., chiefly 26 fiaJT-i.fid. per quarter, with a
, very limited demand. Fresh Flour 27a285.; Sour i
j 21a235.; and Indian Corn Meal, 12 6al3s. fid. per j
brl. On the Ist March the duty on Wheat will pro- I
; bably be 6s. per quarter, and on Fiour3s.7d. per brl.
; No sales of Turpentine have been inadc in the last
fortnight, and it is qu -stionable whether more than
I 7s. per cwt. could be obtained for good quality. Com
j inon American Rosin dull at 2s. bd. per cwt.
j The disturbances in Paris had excited little uneasi- i
i ncss in tins country, from a very general belief and
expectation that they would not 1 ad to serious con
sequences; but this afternoon we have accounts by
telegraph of very alarming insurrectionary tumults, '
attended with great bloodshed, in that Capital yester- '
day, from which the most important results may be i
apprehended, but of which we are yet very imper
fectly informed; it is, however, probable that more J
full intelligence will be recived m time to go by this '
steamer to morrow. Yours respectfully,

TO OWNERS AND MASTERS OF VESSELS.
IN order to facilitate and improve the mode of Communication at Sea, by Ship* ol V\ ar Wlt '* eft C' l
other, and with vessels of the Revenue, Marine and Merchant service, the Signals patented by the
undersigned have been adopted by the Government as the standard code of the United States:
The following are the advantages to be derived front their use, viz:
" Vessels meeting at sea in any part of the world, if provided with: ne Flags and Signal Hooks, may
as long as they are in sight of each other, without altering their course, communicate any intelligence,
either their names, from what port they sailed, what passage they have had, what vessels they left in
port, or that preceded them; particulars relative to vessels they have fallen in with, if in want of stores,
provisions, assistance, or information; their latitude and longitude; casualties or any observations they
have made during their voyage." .
It is highly important to owners that their vessels be provided with these Signals in the event of thci 4
being under convoy of Government, or in company of other vessels.
Testimonials from officers of the Navy, Revenue, Marine, &c., in favor of the system, can be had free
of charge at our oiftcc, where we are prepared to furnish Signals and give auv information in regard to the
business. ROGERS & BLACK,
