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

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.
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, $376,361 46;
and a declared dividend on the first of January of
It appeared, also, that the number of passengers
over the whole line of road last year, was 212,982,
and those to all intermediate places, 1,379,088,
making a total of 1 ?92,070, of which 724,930 were
between Jersey City and Newark. The amount of
goods, wares and merchandise forwarded, amounted
to 34,666$ 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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
