HUNT, SENATOR SEWARD, SPEAXRR LUDLOW, AND OTHERS, ETC., Niagara Falls, Saturday, Juno 4,1851. | The Legislative exroriion came off to-day, in fine style. The train, oossisting of six oars, containing about three huadret persons, left the depot at Albany, at six o'clock thUmorsteg, and arrived here at two o'clock this after neon. The actual running time exceeded the time table about sixty-six minutes, owing to the unexpected size of the train, ae will be seen by the following, which was THE TIME TABLK FOR THE TRAIN.

At half-past three o'clock, the company sat down to a aumptueus dinner, at the Cataract House. After the removal of the cloth, ex-Governor Hunt rose and said that to him had been assigned the agreeable task of welcoming the members of the Le gislature to the coim^ of Niagara. He proceeded to Epeak of the pleasure it afforded him personally to meet so many of the representative* of the State on Euoh an occasion, and to the advantages which accrue from a free intercourse between the people and their legislators. He also referred to the event which had brought the company together, and to the rapid pasaage ?eight hours?from tha capital of the State to the NI Ngara river, and recounted his own experience In making the journey, a few years since, in seven daye and nights. The Governor closed his remarks by saying that he saw aronad him many old friends, who, he hoped, would not haw this part of the State without coming to sec him at Lie house, and see how a retired public servant enjoyed himself at home. His remarks were received by the whole company with hearty applauae, and were closed with the following sentiment The Legislature of the State of New York?the elected .vepreeoutatives of a free, enlightened and happy oountry ?BMg Oieir wisdom entitle them to the gratitude of t?if<r Mr. Speaker Ludlow, of the Assembly, was loudly called for, and responded In a speech, In which he re ferred to the vast and happy results of the rsQrosd enter prises of the day, and warmly approved of the consolida tion act, which had brought the several central lines in this State into one. In concluding, he gave? The Central Line of Railroad?a proud monument of enterprise, capital, and skill?may its success be com mensurate with the grandeur of the project. After the Speaker took his Mat, Hon. William H. Seward was called for, and on rising, was greeted with three hearty cheers. He proceeded to remark upon the first building of the old railroad through Auburn, Geneva, Oanandaigua, he., and the pleasure the citiseni bad experienced in seeing the tide of travel through their beautiful villages?but, said the ex-Gover nor, it was discovered that by building an air line, twenty miles could be saved between Buffalo and Albany. And after building this air line, what do they do? They aak as to oome here and celebrate the saciiflce. No voice on the old line had been raised against the air line, but he gave notice that they must cany their passengers faster than they had dans to-day, or his friends would build roads whteh would enable passengers to reach the capitol ahead o' them. Like his dlstingu!shed friend, who had firs, i addressed them, he welcomed the members of the Legist*' | tore to Western New York. They should have come sooner, but they were welcome now. He referred to the MSBery which they had passed in their rapid flight?the falls *f Cohoes, Trenton, the Mohawk, Orlskaoy, and other beautiful streams?the silver lakes and fertile fields; but, to past from nature to man, they had passed worts which were an honor to human enterprise. But we canuot fol low htm through his speeoh. It was eloquent and effec tive, ant', elicited hearty applause. Comptroller Wright was next loudly called for, and he was net to be found. Senator Bristol was then called up. He responded in a speech of some length, but in 60 low a tone as scarcely to bo heard by the reporter. His argument seemed to be, that the world would move on very well while we had a free press, independent of party, and a party press Inde pendent of party. Pare Godwin was called on. and made an eloquent speeoh. He told a story of a man in I-ondan who was quite sore one night that be felt the shock of an earth quake; but on reading the London Timet the next morn ing, and finding no mention of an earthquake, he con cluded that there had been none. So In this country, if the press did not herald what was done, here and there, from day to day, the people would not even know that a cele bration bad been here today ; and many of the persons present would hardly believe it, unless they read tho pro ceedings in the morning papers. Railroad- do much to cement and bind together distant parts of the Union. He spoke further of the value of railroads to the country, and closed by giviDg an appropriate toast. The company separated at six o'clock. RAILROAD FESTIVAL AT SAVANNAH. Baltimork, June 5. 1853. A railroad festival was held at Savannah on Thursday, whioh was attended by a large number of guests from Columbus and other points Senator Berrien gave a pub lic dinner and ball on the occasion. Twenty-First Annual Meeting or the New Jersey Rnllioail Company, On Saturday the New Jersey Railroad and Trans portation Company bold their twenty-first annual meeting, at the City Hotel, in Newark, for the elec tion of directors and officers for the present year, when a very able and satisfactory report was laid be fore the meeting by J. P. Jackson, Esq., Vice Presi dent of the Company, accompanied by the fiscal re port of January last, from which it appeared that the capital stock paid in was $2,197,800; the funded debt woe $470,000; the floating debt, $85,627 37; the surplus earnings expended in the construction of ( the road and payment for property, $376,361 46; and a declared dividend on the first of January of $109,882. It appeared, also, that the number of passengers over the whole line of road last year, was 212,982, and those to all intermediate places, 1,379,088, making a total of 1 ?92,070, of which 724,930 were between Jersey City and Newark. The amount of goods, wares and merchandise forwarded, amounted to 34,666$ tons,and the number of miles run by pas senger, freight, and other trains, was 270,480. The meaipta from passengers, freight, and other sources, ware $608,942 33, and the ordinary expenses $316, WM 86; the transit duty on passengers and freightto 4fco State was $13,081 29, and the tax on capital stock to the State was $10,490 60 There were no passengers killed or injured while te the oars during 1862 ; but four persons lost thair lives by jumping from them while In motion, aodoot while standing on the steps of the platform, com ing in contact with a freight sled. Six passen gers were slightly injured by jumping off the cars while in motion, making a total of killed and injured eleven. A very trifling amount of casualties, considering the almost perpetual motion in which | people indulge when traversing railroads in the United States. There was one employe killed, eight seriously or slightly injured, and seven persons killed on the track, owing to their own recklessness I or imprudenoe. This very satisfactory statement I may be attributed to the careful management of the road, as described in Mr. Jackson's report, to which we shall now briefly refer, and which is of conside rable length. The report states that the company was organized on the fourth of January, 1832 ; but owing to the powerful competition against which it had to ooa tend, and the limited resources of the population of New Jersey, a very small portion of the stock about one twentieth?was taken by persons in that State, and the Commissioners were obliged by their own personal credit to raise the remaining stock elesewhere; and one of the most expensive opera tions, that near Bergen Hill, was commenced when I there was only $26,000 in the treasury. The com mencement of so important an undertaking as the New Jersey Railroad, with such limited means and resources,-Mr. Jackson compares to an attempt to storm the rock of Gibraltar with a pocket pistol. At this period, however, he states that the enter prising house of Nevina, Townshend A Co., of New York, and other capitalists of that State and of New England, became proprietors of stock to a large amount; and the commissioners were thus enabled to proceed with the work between New York and New Brunswick, in accordance with the provisions of the charter. On the first of July, 1835, a first dividend of threee per cent was declared, at which time nine tenths of the entire stoek was held by the capital ists referred to, and the remaining one-tenth by forty-six New Jerseymen; a mueh larger number of whom now own nearly twelve times the amount which was held at the period referred to. The report states, that In accordance with the pro visions of the supplement of the last Legislature, authorising a further apportionment of stock to stock holders, $260,000 of the surplus fund, now amount ing to $376,304, had been thus apportioned, being ten per cent per share, for each ten shares. The re ceipts for through and way trade, are described as continuing to increase?but so also are the expenses, owing to a determination which has been made, to complete a firm and substantial line of road, which necessarily will lead to a considerable outlay. The msinagers, agents and employes are then de servedly complimented, for their care and vigilance in conducting the affairs of the road; and the com pany and the public are congratulated on the re markable exemption from serious accidents, to which the road might be considered liable, owing to the number of trains that are continually passing and repassing: the directors very properly deeming it a cause of thankfulness, that on the twenty-flrst anni versary of the company, and its coming of age, it may be recorded, that of thirteen millions of passen gers who have been transported on this road, no person in the cars has suffered in life or limb. Every proper precaution, the report observes, will continue to be taken to prevent accidents, by a well digested system of signals, a minute and constant examination of the wheels and axles of the cars, and the machinery of the engines; and by an important and indispensable auxiliary towards greater safety, which has hitherto prevailed?that of individual re sponsibility and to avoid danger on approaching bridges, no less than Ave persons are required to watch for the signal when the draws are open, and a reduct on of speed is rigidly enjoined and enforced. Accelerated speed,Mr. Jackson remarks, is however, required by public sentiment, which increases the hazard of travelling on railroads, the regulations of which are still in their infancy, and which occa siona'ly cannot prevent the occurrence of horrible accidents. He, therefore, recommends that a more considerate public sentiment be cultivated, ana one that would be contented with a less rapid speed. The adoption of a double traok on the entire route is also recommended, and which is at present com pleted from New York to Elizabethtown; and an improvement is suggested, by widening and straight ening the Bergen Cut, and the extending and multiplying the depot and ferry accommodations at Jersey City on an extensive scale; to effect which the directors, it is stated, should be warranted by the stockholders to enter into negotiations for the purchase.of property,and for other purjioses?the sup plement of the Legislature haviug authorized the in crease of the capital stock to the extent of $500,000; and having conferred the power of making improve ments, whereby the obligations to the public may be realized. The report concludes with stating, that the amount received last year by the State was $23,879, which makes in the aggregate $207,076 that has been pnid into the public treasury by the company, for which it has received in return no exclusive right The report having been referred to a committee, they subsequently reported in fbvor of the several re commendations which it contained; among others, that for a testimonial to Gen. Darcy, the former Pre sident. and J. P. Jackson., Esq., the present Vice President, for the untiring zeal and energy dis played by them in the performance of their ar duous and important duties, and a resolution to that eflcct was subsequently passed; for which those gentlemen expressed their acknowledgments. THE BANQrET. At half-past two o'clock, the members of the com pany, and a number of invited guests, consisting for the most part of the representatives of sister com panies, assembled in the dining saloon, where an elegant and substantial repast was provided by the proj rictors of the hotel?the company numbering about one hundred and eighty persons, who seemed to have appeared as if by magic. The President of tLc company, the Hon. J. Philips Phoenix, M. C., presided on this interesting occasion, having on his right, Chief Justice Hornblower, and was assisted by J. 1'. Jackson, Esq.; Hon. Daniel B. Ryall, Col. J.W. Scott, Henry A. Remson, and VV. Rankin, Esq.; with H. J. Southmayd, Esq., the Treasurer, who acted hs Vice Presidents; and when our re porter entered the room, having been detained to complete his abstract of the report, lie found the party discussing "a hasty plate of soup," and prepa ring for an attack on the more substantial edibles, with all the energy of men who justly appreciated "internal improvements," particularly those which appertain to the strengthening of the "inner man." To enter into any consecutive account of the proceedings of this happy re-union, would be im possible. All seemed bent upon enjoyment ; and up| eared to be much in the frame of mind of the man who, when indiciously rending a book, " gives the reins of his imagination into its author's bands, is phased, he knows not why, and cares not where fore." The President gave successively, " The Ex ecutive, Judiciaiy and Legislature of New Jersey," and " The Mayorond Common Council of Newark," pre facing each toast with brief and pertinent re marks. The sister companies were also toasted, and the compliment was aptly replied to by their repre sentatives, who were present. Chief Justice Horn blower replied to the first of these compliments to the State authorities in a speech of considerable length, but which was lost in the din of conversation and certain popping of champagne bottles, which afiorded unmistakeable evidence that the Maine liquor law is not in force in New Jersey. Other toasts followed, appropriate to the occasion, as they rose spontaneously in the minds of those who gave them, which called forth speeches abounding with happy hits, that would hnve been lost elsewhere than where they were uttered, but whtoh seemed to be duly appreciated by those present. In reply to one of these, Chief 'Justice Hornblower said he was not an antediluvian, but still he was old enoagh to re member when the sole means of travelling between New York and Newark was monopolized by two colored gentlemen, who were rivals in business; and) oi.e of the company added, that a passenger thought lie had performed a goed day's work if he wentand returnra on the same day. The toast in relation to tho Common Council was responded to by the Mayor, who said the city of Newark and the saflroad company were mutually contributors to each, other's prosperity, and he trusted a good oudereti^idlug be tween them would always continue. During the afternoon tho President stated, that, as many of tho members were not present when the report was read, he would call upon the Vice Presi dent to read it again, for their special edification. Mr. Jackson, in reply, stated that the report would shortly be printed, and tfiev would thus be put In poatesuion of the desired information ; meantime, he would at present only fcall attention to tho main faqi which it contained?t'nat of thirteen million of pas sengera who had travelled the road of the company, tbey had all beep carried over it without Injury to life or limb. The toast of the Western New Jersey Railroad, again called up Chief Justice Horn blower, who re marked upon the tendency of that line to render the inhabitants of the more distant portions of the State better acquainted with each other, and which would enable thoee of the interior, with little cost of time, or money, to enjoy the healthful breezes of the At lantic seaboard; and who gave in conclusion?"Union to the State of New Jersey." The President stated that he was a native of New Jersey ; and compli mented its ueople upon their conservatism aqd res pect for the laws, in which they compared favorably with the citizens of other States. Heenquiied if there were any gentlemen present who had Men in Cali fornia, with the exception of the late President, whom he requested to favor the company with an account of that interesting region. Gen. Darcy re plied, by alluding to the origin and progress of the railroad, and again referred to the aid which it had received from Messrs. Nevins and Townshend, and other capitalists of New York, but said very little with reference to the subject alluded to by the Pre sident. The " Press " was then given; which was replied to by Judge Naar, editor of the True American of Trenton; who expressed a hope that its conductors would always wield-it with caution and prudence. After some farther remarks, he gave?"May the powers of New Jersey be combined in one object? the promotion of the nonor, happiness and prosper ity of its people." An editor or one of the Newark papers, who followed, then gave?" J. P. Jackson, ?6q., the Vice President of the New Jersey Railroad Company?able and efficient .in the discharge of his duties, kind and courteous to all with whom he has intercourse?a model officer and a model gentleman." By this time six o'clock bad nearly arrived, the hour at which the return cars were to start; most of the company had left, and the others were pre paring to leave; and our reporter took his depar ture, there being nothing more to describe other than tuic, vuviv wviiifs T the separation of those who were44 happy to meet-? sorry to part?and who will be happy to meet again. The Grand Trunk Railway Company of Canada. The Canadian Legislature having passed an aot authorizing the amalgamation of the principal rail roads In Canada, embracing that between Montreal and Portland, a company has been formed in Eng land to carry the plan into effect. The Orand Trunk Railway will be 1,112 miles in length, with a uniform guage of five feet six inches, and will engross the traffic of a region extending eight hundred and nine miles, in one direct line, from Portland to Lake Hu ron, containing a population of nearly three millions in Canada, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. At Portland, it will connect with railways reachiag eastward to the province of New Brunswick, and ul timately to Halifax or Nova Scotia, and southwardly by lines already in operation, to Boston and New York. From Richmond, near the province boonda ry, on the Portland line, it runs eastward to Quebec and the Trots Pistoles, whence a lino is contem plated to extend through Miramichi, and eventually to Halifax. At Montreal it again meets three rail ways, now in operation, between Boston and New York. Westward of Montreal, the main trunk will con- | nect with a tributary line from Bytown, and the vast timber districts of the Ottawa, the northern New York road to Ogdensborg, and the Rome and St Vincent Railroad, also from New York. From King ston to Toronto it will receive the entire produce of the rich country north of Lake Ontario; and at To ronto it will connect with the Ontario, Simcoe and Huron Railroad, one hundred miles of which is near ly finished, and which will connect with Oeorgian Bay. At Toronto it will also meet the Great West ern Railroad from Hamilton to Detroit, two hundred and forty miles in length, at present in a forward state for completion, by which communication will be had with the southwestern part of Canada, and S1SO witn tne railways lu upt-ration bum Dotroit to the States of Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin; and the American railroads in coarse of construction will place the Grand Trunk line in the most direct commu nication with the arterial line to the Great West and the Mississippi. The entire section from Portland to Montreal, of 290 miles, is at present in operation for 250 miles, and in July next will be fully completed. The line from Quebec to Richmond will bring Quebec and Montreal within six honrs of each other, and will open to those cities the most tiirect access to the ocean, at Portland, Boston and New York, passing through a most populous and fertile part of Eastern Canada. Taking the receipts of the Canadian and Ogdcns burg lines as a basis for computing the revenue, it is assumed that the revenue of the company, from the sections to be completed in 1853, will not fall short of $1,521,000 per annum net; which, allowing fifty per cent for working expenses, and deducting $300,000 for lease of the Portland line, "would leave a sum nearly equal to the charge for the entire mortgage debt of the company, and thus from actual present earnings would accrue to the bondholders their in terest, or all the capital intended to be raised by debentures." It is proposed, simultaneously with the construction of the railroad westward, to proceed with a bridge over the St. Lawrence, at Montreal, which is essential to the satisfactory and economical working of the Grand Trunk Railroad, and the structure will be of that substantial character which a work of such magnitude requires. The work has been contracted lor with Messrs. 1'eto, Brassey, and Jackson, of London. The conditions of the other contracts are for the construction of a first class single track railroad, with tho foundations of all the large structures sufficient for a double line, eqnal in pcrmanance and stability to any railroad in Eng land, with every requisite essential to its perfect completion, to the satisfaction of the Canadian government. The combined capital of the company will amount to $17,500,000, of which there has been already ?nbed in shares, and spent on the St. Luwrence,Que bec and Richmond railways, $3,417,000; amount al ready raised on bonds, $3,005,000; roacived in shares and debentures for the shareholders in the St. Lnwrencc and Atlantic, and Quebec and Rich mond railways, on the amalgamation, and for the bondholders of the Ontario, Simcoe and Huron Rail way Company, $4,188,000?making a total of $11,270,000; leaving a balance of $30,230,000 to ho created and apportioned as follows: ? Stock, in 144.920 shares of $126 each, $18,115,000; debentures of $500 each, payable in twenty-five years, bearing interest at six per cent, payable half yearly in Lon don, $9,067,"700, and the same amount in debentures convertible into bonds of the Provincial government, of $500 each, payable in twenty years, and bearing interest at six per cent?making $30,230,000 ; tho contractors agreeing to take one-half the shares and debentures, with an understanding that shareholders may take in equal proportions two-thirds of this moiety twelve months after tho anticipated opening of the St. Lawrence and Atlantic section of tho railway. Debentures to the amonnt of. $1,000 (one-half of each description) will be issued, at par, with each $1,000 of shores; and as the provincial bonds am to be Issued as the work advances, they wi'J bo hekl- in trust, to lie delivered pro rata to the holders of the con vertible debentures. Interest at the rate of six per cent, from the eomplction of the amalgamation until the entire works are finished, will be paid half yearly in London* or sterling, on Lira amount from time to time paid up on each share and the divi dends as declsrod, will also be payable in sterling in Loudon. The first payment in respect of the (?bares and debentures, will take piano on allotment as. follows: -$15 on eaoh share, and twenty per cent! on each debenture, to be paid, at the company's bankers, in London, Liverpool or Canada. Tho remainder will be called up by instalments, not ex ceeding $14 60 par share, and ton per cent per -de benture, at intervals of not loss than four months between aach call; and tho first call will n?t be made until the expiration of aix months from the date of allotment By the last advices received in Canada from England, it appears that a meeting of (ho influential ?" " T? 114 4a TW,?i? proprietor# of the railway from ^ Detroit, wikfi tho promoterB of thw i-rafd taken place in London, the result of wbfch had boon T ? . , .nonit.monl tkf a raicu paci in liuiiuiiii, '? ? ?? . . the oonchudon of an amicable arrangement, of a nature advantageous to both parties; and there wan every probability that one conalh satisfn. tore and favorable would be made with the directors of the Toronto and Hamilton Hoe. The Rnilmn Com mercial Journal quotes the shares of the Grant^ 1 Trunk line at from seven to tight per cent prcuuuiu. THE CHARTER ELECTION. TanMnp, (tMMnmr) dun* T, 18M* "JL A"?
