JANUARY 27, 1852. (
. GENERAL. W. W. IIARtLLEE,
Presideni 1i/mntwn 4- Alinchesler Rail Road Com1pa1y.
Sln: -I have the honor to sulifit, For the iiuorimation of the hoard of
Directors, the Fourth annual Report 6f this department.
'.The great demand for labor, consequent upon the high prices of cotton
the prosecution of so many works of Internal improvements in this
d the adjoining States, has retarded the progress of the Graduation du
*ing the year. Owing to this cause the contract at the western terminus
, was abandoned early in the summer and tihe work prosecut-ed and com
eted on Company's account. Between tho junction with the Camden
Branch and Lynches Creek the Graduation is finished and ready for the
track; qud from the latter point to the Pee Dee river Road, but few con.
'tracts remain uncompleted, and they are in such a state of forwardness as
vill got retard the laying of' the rails.
A contract was entered into in June last, with a respoisible Contractor to
coinplete the work uncontracted for at that time, together with the un
finished and abandoned contracts between Brunswick river and the State
'line, This work has pro rcssed to my entire satislaction and will be finish
tdd Ltime for the rails.
ie refusal of the Court of Brunswiek County, at its last termin to grant
- the C6npany permission to construct their Road on or adjacent to the
Causeway and in accordance with insti uctiuns from the Ioard. I proceeded
to make a now location over "Eagles' Island." This line diverges from
thy old location at Station 67, and crosses the Brunswick River near tihe
W'3olvidero Dam," thence it runs to a point in the North west river, near
Ole-upper end of the Eagles tract of land owned by the Company, and
thence it follows the River bank (and about 100 Feet distant friom it)
down to the property purchased by Messrs. Nutt and Flanner, and in
nended as the situation for the terminal Station and die Repair and
r-workshops. And in this connection I would remark, that I consider this
the best and niost advantageous location I have any knowledge of in the
histry of Rail Roads. While it does not materially icrease the
kength of the R->ad, it avoids the p,)ssiibility of endless litigation and
aMy suits for damages to property in the public highway, and traverses so
-Iosely to tho margin of the river for upwards of a mile, that freights can be
transferred to and from ship to the cams %N ith no more cost than to land it or
the wharf; and not the last consideration will be the value it ill give tC
biore than a mile of front, owned by the Comi.any, and susceptible, for the
* nost part, of being made at a comparatively small cost the most valuablc
Wharf property in the vicinity of WiNlington. The location of the terminal
Station, opposite to the centre of tihe town, N% Il altbr d the great st con.
Venience to way travellers and the business of' tihe ton, nid the time aid
cost of transportation from it to the Wilmington & Raleigh iRail Roa'
Cothpany's Depot will not be greater than frm the most favorable poini
that could be selected on the western side of tle Cape 1car River.
In addition to this the track can be extended, at a Ermall cost, to a point
'opposite the lower end of tho town, and thus give facilities to all parts ol
'the town for the delivery of freight and its transpori tation directly across tle
river. This location dispeises with upwards of a wile of Graded ioad
which, however, is very light work,) and requires tie Gm aduation of the
same distance r'om Brunswick River to its junction with tho old line. T1
-accomplish the latter within the shortest time, I have withdrawn Lee & Co.
from their contract and placed then and hands hired on Companly's account
'on it, and have no doubt it will be cotlleted by the arrival of the raila
'and the necessary machnmmery to commneee INing thie track.
between the State line and the Gri'eat Pee'Dee River, many of the Con
tractors are progressing with their contracts for Graduation, while others
have temporarily suspended, and a flew have not commnenced operations. To
those who have not commenced oper'ations, or who have suspended for' such
a length of time as to create the impression that they would ultimately
abandon them, I have forwarded to each a copy of the order of the Buard
(marked A) and refer the matter to your consideration.
Contracts have beeni made for the trestle timber and 'ross ties between
Sumterville and Mars Bluff Turn out, and no doubt is entertained of their
completion within the specified time.
The construction of the trestle work and bridges between Sumterville
and Lynch's Creek, is being prosecuted with an energy that justifies tihe
expectation of an early com.letion; indeed, I am of the opinion that
forty miles of the Road adjoining the Camden Branch wAl be in (perat-o mmi
time to claim on the 1st July the last instalhuent of the subscription of' the
State of South Carolina.
Fsom Brunswick River to Fair Bluff, contracts have been made for most
.of the bridges and trestle wior'k, and a gang of Carpenteis has been
orgamized and commenced their constructioni. F'or the construction of thme
File Bridging over Eagles' Island, Big Creek, anid the White Mamrshm, I
' have ordered from the establismmnenit of' Messrs. ilighami & Co., of' Utica1
-New York, one of Cratm's Patemit Steam Pile Machinies, which will greaty
facilitato the construction and reduce thme cost of' this wvork. This inmebine
will be shipped from N. York in a few days, and wiill be p~ut in operation
immediately after .its arrival.
An arrangement has been made by Major G wvynni with C. Pentez.
Esq., of Newv York, for sinkinig thme ifoundationms of' thme Tiers ifor the lirid ge
over thme Great Pee Dee River', according to the Patent Pnuatic proUcess
ofDr. Pot ts, for putting ini f'oundlation s, and topenrations will be comnimenced
as soon as the Cylinders and nmaterials for' the moasonry' canm be prlocured.
The application of this principle which lhas been pr'actisedI so successfully i
sinking foundations of' a diftieult characeter' in England, is believed to be
the most efficient, substantial and ce-imoindeal imethod~ of' ob'taiing a pr
manent foundation for the Piers in thmis R iver, andm is pecularly adlapted to
this and all other situations wher'ie at hese, flatting and treaufherous sand is
subjected to a strong current of' water.
In April last I contracted with 1mes'. Hlenriichly & Dr'urv, of Bostonm
for thme construction of' an Enine of( i.ot Iless tI. an 15 u nor e dtm
16 tons weight; and abont thme samec time ~ 'in hrlesten fir one first class
* Passenger Coach, one Baggage Car.', six fre'iighit Car's, anid six Gravel (Cars.
The E~ngine (the Geineral Sumteir) amuri' ed oni thme Road on thme 200h
October, and has been stea'lily at wecrk since that titme, ant her' pe rf'mnmce
has equalled myv cxpectationms. Th~e lasemnger Coa ch and Car's have
arrived and are in daily use.
-Tile Road wvas opene'd for use to Cane Savanlna Roadh, a distance of
tnme miles, ott tile 12ith Novenmber, and to Sunmtermville, a distance of 15S
1-2 miles from the Junction, on the 2t h inst. I.e Ia ving of' the track
was delayed by the censtructioni of' thmo trestsle work across Cane S3avanna
and Green Swamp, an aggregate of' 210 feeI'ct. Anmd I would hmer'm
rmmark that the bilidges amid tr'estle work have not progr'essed it hm the
Graduation, because no contracts could be made for' the timber 01' their
construction except for' payxmenmts in cashi, w hich the 1 oardI did not
-think it to the interest of' die CIomphany to make unitil late ini the
* past Summer; amid since that time I have nmade such contrai'cts as will ini
future prevent delay ft'om this cause. Statement nmrked 15, and hereunto
annexed', is an abstract of' the receip ts From tr anspoi'ta tion, f'iomi thme 12th
l'ovember to the 1st Januar"e, amid to the 110th imnst. iniclusiv'e. Th~e numilber'
of passengers durinig the nmonthi of' December was 610 1-2 amid thme receipits
$803 40; and this is within a Fraction of' thme estimate of' this brantich of' the
t'ne revenue submitted in my last Annual Report, and gives assurances thatt
it ilhiincrease as time Road is extended, and exhibits the imuportatnce of
fosterinig and encouraging this species of' travel. While time Road was mm
finished to Sumitervillo and thme ].asseniger Train ran r'eguhu-'ly amid
transported out' Ironi arid othert nmaterials, I Found it inmp~ossible to tr'atnsport
cotton or other fr'eigh t with any regularity, aiid thiemrefore declined to
Sreseivo it. According to the dir'ectionis of thme Ioar'd, 1 phhased a
small Engine (thme P'ahnetto) constructed in Charnlestonm, andt freight has
been received arid transported to and from the Junction with thme Camden
Branch. I hiad hiopied with thme use of' this~ light Engin e we woul be
-permitted to cross the Wateree Swamp and deliver freighit at thme Junction
with the Columbia Road, fr'onm whence it could be f'orwarded to Chmarlestonm
with more promptness amnd despatchi, becatise of time lam'ger class of Emngines
ini use on that Road; and thant we would thus avoid thme necessity of con
strunctinlg Station buildings which wouhld be subject to iunudationis fr'om
. reshoets at thme Junction with Camiden 13ranchi. (1 beg to submit a special
Report nmarked D, upon this subhject.)
I submit also the rates of freight amid passeniger fare, (marked E) made
out in accordance with your' directoms, and which, in the unfinished conm
dition of tho Road, I believe iil yield the greatest revenue. Thme am'
rangement of proper rates of Freight atnd passenger fiare should be regulated
solely with theo view of'yieldinig thme gr'eatest nett rev'cenue From the pro.
ductions amid popmulationi of' thme countr'y tributar'y to time Road. The
Limycr rate g endinu N AM 1''tht'.. 4 t iE d l im iavel, i always to
ho preferred, but it cannot be expected tha'the transportation on al un
finished Roal enni be done with ti, saie rI nilarity or at the saine cost as
that of a Road in completo operation and hving a inuch larger traffic. For
short distanices the cost increases in a 1ey great ratio. 'The cost of
loading and uniloa-ling, which is a heavy ito in the expense, is the saine
or a short as for a longer distance. The .lassification of the rates of
f'reight is that of the South Carolina Rail lload, and was adoptedi with.a
view of sililying the accounts. if the frei lt on either Road should be
collected by the other. Agencies will b stablished at the Junction and
Sumiterville, and such Station houses constiucted as will answer until the
comple-ion of thu Road, when the traflic of Ihe Road will have indicated
the character and ainount of business at ea h station and buildings of a
wore suitable character can be substituted.
To each officer andl agent I have gien written instructions for his
gOveni'ment, andl he is required to act in striet conformity with them, and
any departure will fiuriish legitimate grouwds for his disnissal.-And as
the Road progresses that Rydent will be estended, wihich I consider so
essential to the proper niaiageiient and success of the work, -as well as to
the safety and security of person and property; ani which uill cownied it
to the public favor and tIus increase its uehiess to the country and its
value as an investment to the StockholdUrs.
Under instructions froin the Board, I epntracted with Messrs. Norris
& Brothers for eighit Locomotives of iiilorin 16 tons %, eight, and to be
pail for in Bonds of the Coinpaiy. They are to be delivered as Follows:
Two ol or before the 1st March; two ly the 1st August, and the reinaingin
four as may be required after giving six :noniths niotice. I have also
ordered six freigit Cars to be delivered on the South Carolina Rail Road
for the Weatern end, and trucks for three feight cars, to be delivered in
Wi'iiihagton for the Eastein end.
I recommend a commencetnent of laying the track fron Brunswick
River westward. as sooi as the Ellgite anl Cars arrive, without waitin"<r
for the completion of' the woik on Eigles' Island. This will hasteni thie
extension of' that end of the line at a snialier cost for transportation of'
the materials froin Wilmingtoni to the cressing of Brunswick River.
I have received advices from the Ebbes Vale Company of the shipment
of 726 tons of Rails, one cargo of 133 tons of which has arrived in
New York and inay be expected to reach Wilinngton about the 1st
proxinmo, aknd at the dato of the advices vessels had been engaged to take a
ftirther quantity of about U-50 tons I ain also advised by Messrs.
Itayniond & Fallerton, A gents for Messrs. Bailey, ]Jrothers & Co., that
shipments under their contract for 7000 tons would be made in January,
and to follow.
On the 28th of November I addressed the Post Master General and
informod hii that ten miles of the Road was in operation, and the
mail could be delivered in 6urnterville two br three hours in advance of
the Stages %ia Statesburg; and that we were prel-ared to cuittract with the
Department for its ti ansportation. Ini reply lie stated that any arrange
ment for its transportation inust be male with the contractor without
involving additional expense to the Departincnt, aid a I roposition based
upon a pro rata division of the mail pay, was subnitted to the contractor
and declined. I have advised the Denartment that the load is in
operation to Suinterville, and the Conipany, are prepared to transpor t the
mail to that point.
Owing to the unfinished condition of smo of the abandoned contracts
for Graduation between the J unction and Sumterville, the exact cost of
that portion of the R(oad cannot he stated; but I can say with confidence
that it will not exceed $6400 per nile, including tile loss upon
tie sale of the South Carolina lii, Boad Stock. This is one of the
heaviest sections of the line, aiid inuch higher prices have been paid for
timber and inaterials than will be iiecessary on any other part of the Road.
Under the contracts agd an angeinents for the prosecution of the
work oil the Western end the Road will be extended to Mars Bluff
Turnout, a distance of 61 miles, by tie first day of January niext, aid
no exertion will be spared to concentrate such a IFOrce on the end as will
push it forward with the same vigor and apidity. Every inile of track
laid adds strength to the means of the Coi any', niid affords that
safe, rapiid and cheap communication with the sca board which has been
so long and anxiously looked for.
