owners of lands aJjeiain^ navigable atrsains were permit

(4 Watts, 440.) declared, that I these worde were tUiea
literally, tbe owners could not avail themselves of the
privilege at all; but aa this construction would have W-n
ooutrary to tbe gTaat itself, n more hoeral use w?s adopt
ed, and a dam which did not materially hinder tbe aavi
gai ion was held not to be within the prohibition. Al
though the reasoning of these easee does not altogeUier
At the one before us, they are entitred to much weight
They are decisive, indeed, of rne thing, wfeiah is impor
tant, namely: that the werdf in question msy sometimes
have a legal signification different fretu thit which we
wonld otherwise have been disposed to astifrn them. 1 or
the sake ef consistency, we noiat follow In the stepe o
those who went before at, though it be trae that tb
track was not very dearly marked.
Let it then be conceded, as a posetS'e thing, that a
railroad ean he so constructed on a public "'rest that it
Hill not be aa obstruction to its free ase? that eu?h rail
road is not in any sense a nuisance per sc? that a street
ma y be ocenpied in common by a railroad and the pnblH
wilnont any snch inconvenience to the latter aa will
amount to an impedimet t, or abridge tbe freedom of its
ate for ordinary purpose* ? still it is not true (as rbs ooa
verfe of the argument woaM make it) that the street is
unobstructed a* long as travel upon it is net entirely
prevented. If It be proved that a man may squetas him
self along beside the t?sch, or dodge across at tbe peril
ef his life, it does act follow tha*. the use of the street is
free, unobstructed, and unimpeded. We held, therefore,
that under a charter like this, a railroad caanot be built
oa a jtrot is "co1! a muo?r at to oau*? ur wtwwi ob
struction. It we assume, as we do. theithe elauit un
der consideration does not entirely forMd the compaay
front going oa any street, we mist also allow thesn to
create such impediment* as cannot be avai led. Rot
those whieb are not absolutely nsoeeaary to the making
and using of the railroad, are unUwful; tor mnosgtrs are
bound to leave the street aa nearly free from obstraeuons
as they ean, and for that purpose to spire no reason the
exven jit are ef money or labor. If, for instates, the rail
road be made aboxe the level of the street, taey m>i*t
grade the rest of the street also, If that will make it bet
ter for the public accommodation. They cannot say to
the city authorities : We have destroyed yor* street, and
rendered it impassable; but we hive not impeded it* free
use, bocaute yon ean restore it tgain to a tolsrable con
dition, at your own expense Neither does it make any
difference whether it be a main thoroughfare or an unim
portant by street, for this act of incorporation protects
all alike.
We have attentively considorci the bill, answer, and
evidence in the cause, and thej satisfy as of the foliat
ing facts: (1.) A considerable por'Jon of one street
j within the present limits of i'.ric city Is occupied almost
I entirely by the railroad in a manner which makes aay
' considerable use of it for other purposes aim impossi
ble; and this is true, although the de'eadants them
stives say that the street might be saftly and n.inveni
ently used if it were properly graded?a duty #hteh they
left unperformed. (2.) Two streets are erossod by the
railroad on bridges which ate too low and too narrow
for the Urge wagons passing one another, or for a single
wagon with a bulky load. (3.) Two other streets are
crossed on an emoankmrnt, considerably above grade,
with a ditch on each side, and ttus all parage sling
those streets, by any kind of vehicle, is as oimplotcly
stopped as it could be by a stone wall twenty fest h gh.
All these thing* are illegal,' for the reason* gifeo. rh?t
some of these streets are on low, wet groan. 1, and little
! used, might be a tort of aseligy for the de'endvnt*, i '
i we were sitting here to take eacotes for the violation of
the law. Bat that is no p?rt of our duty.
A large part of the evidence refers to the danger en
countered by persons obliged to cr is. ttie rail.- >ad when
trains were approaching, and the de!?y and inconve
pioaee canted by cart, which totally block cd up tM
creasing places. If tbe defendants have a right to make
; the road on a street, they have a ?o the right to use it
; when made. They may carry all the freight md pas??n>
; gers they ean get. If the nuxber of car* nod locomotives
necessary to do their business be so great as sometime*
to choke the thoroughfares over wh ;h thoy pass, it
must be rf member od that the sams thing "voiild happen
ia a marh greater degree, if the tweatioth. part of the
business were done in cartisgss, ctMchee, and eomoMn
road wagons. If the cars are suffered to staid for an un
necessary length of time, at plsoe* inconvenient to the
public, the act is indictable as a nnissnee, and for anv
want of proper care the defendants are liable in damag-*
to tbe persons injured by it But it oaaaot be said that
they have violated their charter iu causing obstructions
of thit kind, unless su-.h obstructions coal i have be*n
prevented cr diminished by a different oonstracthn of the
road.
Under other circumstances the voluminous body of evi
time* bud before us mitfht requi-ea much more extended
discussion. Bntre tie content with the eompendions
reference ire have trade to tt, because every inch of thie
railroad which Ilea upon any afreet of the city is unlae
f?L at all ere nta. If the defenJants had began .heir
railroad at the place designated in tbeir act of tncorpora
thm, they would not have interfered with any of the
streets mentioned in the MM, except .\?h lute, and that
would have been crossed ?t a different place When a
railroad authorised to be mads at one place is made at
another, it U a mere nuiaasOO on every highway it
touchen in ita illegal course. The l tree's in question
not being on any route whieh tho defeodanta were au
thorised to take, thsy are on them in disobei-enesof their
charter, and all they havw cone tbera is without the sha
dow of authority. It ia useless, therefore, to inquire ho ?
much of the incont enlooce omplained of might litvt
boen avoided by a better coiit<tru :tion. It ia enough to
aay that the railroad fcaa no busicees at all to bo where
it ia.
It appears that the city authorities gave their consent
to tho use of the street*, cml to the location of tho rail
road on the ground which it now oocupies. This privi
lege was given "so fsr as the Vayor ani Councils bare
legal fewer in the premises," upon condition that the
railroad should oans^ the leant possible oMtraction to
the ordinary travel and business of the streets, and with
? reservation of the right to withdraw the prl v liege whon ?
ever tt should appear to the OouooiJs to be injurious to
the interest and welfare of the e'ty. The condition was
broken, and the privilege was revoked. Hut if the reso
Intion of tho Councils had remained in full force up to
thia time, it would have been of no avail here. Tttey
had no "legal power lathe promisee." An act of tho
Legislature cmnot be repealed or mo lifted by the orJI
nance of a eity corporation. What the defendant* did
in disregard of the law was no lass an offenee afuoat the
righla of the public, because the eit* w.ts in soino sort
partieeps m'minu. If both had persist*! in H, the com -
mon wealth's dnty -could have required her to see thai
the rights of her citlzeni* were vindicated sg iln?t both.
m. It is alleged and pro\ed, and not denied that the
railroad has been laid <lo?n on and along a public road,
ealM tt* Buffalo road, in ntoh a way that for ?om-? din
Unco it cannot be, anl is no: use-i at alt; but, on tho
contrary, that portion of the people who wo ill other
wise travel thereon are obliged to take another way,
which the railroad company Lis opeoel for them. Of
course thie is within the prohibition again"*, obstructions
and Impediment to tho free use of public highways.
The answer to this charge i? not IwsC'l on any mtorpre
tat ion which tho charter is thoaght to be capable or.
Other grounds sre taken, "ne defence la, t-at the ral
road could not be made io a straight line without taking
a part cf tho Buffalo rotd. We cm ooly say th*>. if a
railroad caxnct be mad* straight without violating the
law, it nut be nrvJe rrooasd, or not made at all
Finally basel- i (?rea if tr ie) is tho oth?r argument,
that the public has mfferod no injury by thi< act. i !io*?
public interests which lio ootMde of the defendants'
charter, are mot committed t j th-ir keeping. The Lngia
latnre has thought proper to guard th ? rig-it of the
1 people to th* free use of their own reals, by enjoining
th* defendants n ,t to impale or outrun tnem, l'h<s
i injunction tt w ?s wrong to disregard, sveo for th" sa*.s
of a suppose*! public benefit The peopl- hive rejected
< the bona ?klestko company ten'ersd tbsm, an 1 the
| -tate parent fstria: new dem.tda for tb'm the rights
wbicb are MClifau and reserved by bar own laws.
IV The charge tkat the <!efe >ds ots have, by contract,
surrendered the -octroi of their rod to a fo e goc jrporn
two. was but faintly r?r*??e-l in the argument We do not
consider the contract iH*gal, and 1( our opinion were
. dlterent we would withhold it until all the pixtles could
be erooght before .a
This dlcjo?ee of the prior i pal allegations ia the bill.
But aeide from -hese the.** are one or two matters sng
rested by the defendants' coanoel, which ought not to
he pa*a*ri wtthoat a remark.
They have argued tbat no decree eon Id be based on oa
str nctioes floated by the use of the rnilreal, be-auxe the
act of incorporation providee only against the roa \ he
' leg eo eoa?*rnebed ae not to impale, he. And tho bill

; d?* endants, and on tie proof* a ad erV4eo? taken ny
; both partiee, and was argued by toansel; a- d thereupon
ft appears to thin Court that the <Jefeud*n ? have uuilt
; and uo bow a* and maintain a certain railroad, kneen

: road a part ie ?i hta the present liaiite of the eity of

| ud that the >a*d railroad in tbeee parte thereof in a
jmhdc and common aniaaajt. It ia, therefore,
<t. er?d, adjudged aai decreed, that tee defendants
shall, ei, or before tbe expiration of four mouths from
this date, break ap m> much of their said road aa lies
npoa the aaid streets, and dpen the Buffalo road, and
remove tbe materials thei-of, to aa to leave tbe aaid
etreeta and toad in aa good condition aa they were in be
fore tbe renitrneUon of aaK: railroad.
Aad it ia farther declared and adjudged, that the eald
defendanta are henad to make the bonugn of Erie with
?och UatitM aa it had in 1842, the wettern terminus
of their railroad. 1: ii thi refore decreed and ordered,
that the aald defendant* aball, within four noouii from

The deiendaats were Incorporated ia 1842, to make a
railread fr*m Kjrie to tbe ^ute line m the east, and it is
very plain that the sole thought that was in tbe mind of
the 1 eyixlature, in incorporating it, waa to provide a
mesas of eommeroal ooane'tion between the harbor of
hrie asd the ^ late of New Vork It is rery plain, also,
that this eotcpaay has turned almost entirely a<uie from
tbii inrpeH te one that was sot at all intended, and,
witb the aid cf that fraudulent eeneern, the Kranklin
Canal Company * road tMy L?tc carried out their own
main pu-pi*e of fcrm ag a connection between Ottio and
New \ on . and have converted the Intended and proper
term 'una cf their road late L'.tle better than a water
station.
And in the scarce of their proceedings, they have
?hewn very little regard to the public au'norities of the
Htate. Contrary to law, ana in violation of tbe esprota
orCere of 'he roxd ^oruaUnunert, they toos pjt-ieeaion
of a part of the Buffalo or lUdge road, xnd ced it ac
cording to tbeir own wt!l And much of the >anu lln
regard of the pnblie authorities has bejn ethibitod in
their relations nl'h the public office ra of tee city of
Erie, though a mere prl ate corporation, and operating
for the purpcfM of ?ain, tuey seem to have assumed
that the regular loetl authorities mast stand aside for
them, as if in the ureiwnee of their official superiors.

?hoa 11 have b->en stl.'.ng ti allow them much !?m indul

1 am eony that my brethren think, that when an in
corporated town or city U made the terminue t fa railroad,
tbe company has. bv mplica'ien, a right to earry tbeir
read to any point within the tewn or eity, a nd along any
of iti itreote that they may chooee, and vhk without being
at all subject to the dir*?'.ioa or restrain*, of tlie local au

Although much embarrassment ha* and will continue
to remit u a necessary consequence to the extravagant
speculative mania which has ran over the Inn 1 from
one (section to another, (till we hare to reoord the grati
fying fact that, notwithstanding there must be enormous
personal sacrifices, the country will, ns a whole, derive
much benefit from the immense internal improvements
which have been undertaken, and the only drawback to
this favorable conclusion, over and above the pecuniary
personal injury may, as if la anticipated,, he that in
the production of so many competing roads, the best will
so overran ita competitors as to destroy to a very great
extent, their condition and their uaefulneM. If, for
instance, a straight line road should be eomtrueted,
as is now oontemphted, to run south through Jereey,
the through travel would he entirely diverted from all
) ,e exist' ng road* )aow in use, leavings* the only soaree
of profit tuch portion as is denominated local. Id our
own rotate we have experienced the full force of th:*
species of rivalry. The Trie, running in cunpeti'.ion with
the Central an') the 1 ndson. formed to break down the
Harlem, .hare, e.ch in their turn, pro luce 1 reciprocal
injury ; but the ufficulty does not res*, here; these aeve
ral roaca have no', toly their own respective c)mp?ti
tions to contend with; it is not the Erie versus the Cen
tral, and the Hu^cn agaiott the Harlem, which strike
at the root ef their prosperity; they hive to encounter
t roufh the tame vi;;o.- which gsve them exis'.ence
aew enterprises and additional routes, b fed and con
structed on juperior information, aecoiupanied. by all
the advantages of each and c-ery modern improvement.
Ah an exemplification of these views, we now present
for reflection and consideration, one ef the boiler t
and best conceived projccta of the day. It has been
most energetically pressed forward, steal .hily and judi.
ciously moving on, making no preiensions of snperiority,
while in truth and in reality it will soon show it?elf
tapping and sapping the foundation of the business
prospects of the several roads of which it ia hereafter to
become the auceeaeful rival. The graaj enterprise to
which we refer i* fully and most intelligently laid dawn
on a map now before us, from which we peresive that the
1 Delaware, Lackawana and Western Railroad, with ita
principal connections, nauft, when oomplete, be:oae the
main line of travel and transportation to the west'
ern lakes, and to the Ohio river at Pitteburg, and
eonseqnently when running in connect! in with the
"bio roads, producing a complete revolution in the
channels of internal communication. In the course of a
few^aye an important link of this route will be finished,
accompanied with the nsoa) celebration, being that par
tion lying between Binghamton and Kyracnse, th js open
ing a continuous atx foot road from Ssranton to Iako
Ontario, leaving to be completed but a diatanoe cf sixty
five miles, uniting w;th the New Jersey Central, which
will furnish the shortest, the safest and the be?t Use
from Philadelphia and New York to tbe Great West
Ihe Knk from fronton to tbe New Jersey Central is in
such a state ef ferwardnese that we have every rea*)a
to antvripste that it wiU be ready for use early in the
spring, and which, when complete, will transport, anthra
cite real, ef tbe very best quality, frccn the mines to the
c.ty ef New York, within ten hours from .he time of start
ing. The Peon-. lvauia Can J Company will, of course,
aead their coal by this route, instead of having it trans,
i rteU on tbe Delaware aal Hudson canal, wL. eh ii only
a portion of the year open. The city of New York has a
meet direct interest in this roatc. We shall est

! the remains of arery heavy cUv and roc* eidavatljn at
that point, which will rvquire till about the lat of S j
vejnber for lie completion. I think, therefore, that on
tba lat of January next we may expect the wnoie line
from Cairo to Galeaa to be m rent iues* for operation by
rrpnlxr trains, gi ring ui by Chicago and Oaiena rood, a
line from Chictgo to Catena, by th? Aurora Eitiuioi
i fad a line from Cairo to Chic >go, aud by the Ohio and
Mlanieaippi road a line from St. Looia to Cairo, and Ut.
Lou la to Chicago without interrention of steamboats, ex
cept for crossing the ferry at 't. LouU.
On the Chicago branch the traek is laid from Chieage
bouth 143 miles, an ltiie gaai'ing la complete, ready for
the rails for a further diat?noe of 83 mil**, which ean be
laid during th#yre?ent autumn; the track laying ia pro
gr ??inj; aUo on this portion of the work
Wc lis' e. therefore, no * actually laid 409 miles of track
and five parties now lading track, and another to be ad
d?d on i he 1st October, all of whom will bo fully sup
rlted with materials and graded road-bed until the whole
line, except some 70 mi!?a of the southern end of the
< tiicjgo branch, is completed. This portion rf the branch
is In a forward state, but will not be ready fer the rails
until the ojieninf of the sptlng, when ralla can be deliv
erf d from both north and south, and the track laid with
great expedition. I am very resoectfully,
