sirable to deposit property. It is doubtful whether on any other of the East and West streets such lateral facilities could be afforded, and whether the benefit of the improvement would not be in a great measure con. fined to the Delaware end of the line. This capacity to diffuse its benefits over a considerable extent of the City, has been deemed by the Commissioners a most important advantage-nor could they close their eyes to the fact, that the vacant space at the Drawbridge af. fords the only ground within the limits of the City, where a Rail-Road track passing from West to East, can be conveniently and properly curved into the contemplated Avenue along the Delaware front. This Avenue when completed will have a spacious entrance with an easy graduation into Dock street, and thus the revolving platforms which would be necessary in any other situation may be dispensed with.

3. A Rail-Road upon the route recommended will interfere less than any other with the convenience of private dwellings, and with private travel. Throughout its whole length, there are very few buildings which are not occupied wholly or in part for purposes of trade, and which would not be directly accommodated in the way of such trade. In this respect none of the East and West streets are similarly situated with Market street. As to the travel on Market street, it is chiefly of that sort which the Rail-Road would better accommodate, or which under the arrangements resulting from its construction, would naturally take a different direction.

4. Another consideration which has had great weight with the Commissioners is, that the route by Market, Third and Dock streets, will abundantly accommodate that portion of the City, which heretofore has been connected with the Western business, and in which property has become valuable in consequence of that connection. They deem it impolitic suddenly to change the great channels of business, so as to enhance the value of property in one part of a City, at the expense of another, and unjust to do so without great necessity. In the present instance they believe there is no plausible pretext for such a change.

It is impracticable for the Commissioners within the proper limits of a report, to do more than sketch the views by which they have been governed in the selec. tion of a route. They are of a kind however to require little explanation, as they will readily occur to any practical mind when once directed to the subject. Among the plans which have been suggested for the construction of the Rail-Road, the Committee prefer that recommended in the able communication from W. Strickland, Esq., Civil Engineer, a copy of which accompanies this report. He proposes to curve the Broad street Rail-Road into High street with four separate tracks, two tracks six feet apart on the centre or crown of the street, and one track within five feet of the present curb-stone on each side of the way-that the foot pavements be increased five feet in width, and that in every square there be a turn-out from the tracks in the centre, to those near the curbstones on each side-or, in other words, branch tracks from the right and left on each side of the central railways; that wrought iron edge rails of the common construction be used, fixed by chains upon stone blocks three feet apart, the top of the rail being flush with the surface of the pebble pavement, and protected longitudinally on each side by granite flag-stones of one foot in width? These stones are to be laid close to the rails, on the outside of the tracks, and from two to three inches from the rails on the inside so as to allow sufficient play for the dip of the flange of the car wheels.

The cost of the improvement above described, including its continuation out High street from Broad to Ashton, is estimated by the engineer at 8270,000, which estimate also includes a continuation of the tracks down High street from Third to a point on the West side of Front, where he proposes to fix pivots for the

return of cars towards Broad street, so as to give the merchants on Market below Third street a direct com. munication with the Rail Road on Broad street.

The Commissioners are aware that two prominent objections may be started, to the plan and route, which they have felt it their duty to recommend—namely, that the removal of the Market houses from High street to other localities will be inconvenient, and that it will cause much expense over and above the actual cost of the rail road. They believe, however, that the more these objections are examined, the less important they will appear, and that they are insignificant in comparison with the broad and general interests to be advanced by the contemplated improvement. To recommend other scites for the erection of Market houses, forms no part of the duty prescribed to the Commissioners. They have nevertheless made such enquiries as to satisfy themselves, that suitable positions can be obtained and several markets erected at no exhorbitant expense, which would accommodate the public quite as well if not better than the present. They deem it important, moreover, to relieve the wholesale business of High street from the obstructions created by the markets, and by the removal of those buildings to restore the original plan of the city. A considerable portion of the expense may no doubt be defrayed by voluntary contributions from those who own property on the line of the Rail Road, and who will be benefited at once by a new accommodation to trade, and by the removal of a long standing inconvenience.

If the Commissioners are right in their estimate of the importance of the proposed communication to the pros. perity of the city, it follows as a corollary, that no time should be lost in carrying it into complete effect. Every day's delay will deprive Philadelphia of some portion of the advantages to which she is fairly entitled, and increase the difficulty of recalling business to those channels from which, by the superior foresight or activity of other districts, it may have been diverted. They would therefore respectfully recommend to the Councils of the City, if the plan herein submitted shall meet their approbation, forthwith to commence the construc. tion of the Rail Road along the Market street from Broad to Eighth street, and frem Broad to Ashton and along Third and Dock streets, and also to take immedi ate measures for procuring other scites on which to erect suitable market buildings. In accomplishing the latter object, they confidently believe that no great difficulty will be experienced, and that the markets may be removed from High street between Eighth and Third streets, by the time the other portions of the line shall have been completed. If however any unexpect ed obstacles should occur, so as materially to delay the completion of an entire line from Broad street to the Delaware, they regard prompt action as of so much im. portance as to justify the construction of a cheap temporary line to be used until the better and more per manent one can be finished. For this purpose a route leaving High street at Eighth street, passing down Eighth to Walnut, down Walnut to Dock, and down Dock to the river, appears most convenient, although as a permanent location it is liable to serious objections, and is in no respect comparable to that which the Commissioners have recommended.

To obviate any objections to the location of Rail Roads through the City on the ground of general inconve nience, the Commissioners respectfully submit the following extract of a communication received from Baltimore, and from a source entitled to the highest credit:

"Railways can be constructed along the streets of a City on which produce and merchandize may be con veyed, with more economy and less interruption to the ordinary intercourse thereof than by any other mode whatever. They can be so laid down as to be crossed every where freely, and turn-outs are not required ex cept where the streets are very narrow indeed. opposition to the extension of rail ways in this City has

The

proceeded from a few individuals who were large property holders in the Western section of the city, and who were desirous of monopolising the whole trade of the Rail Road. Their representations have been shown to be groundless, and our Councils have almost unanimously affirmed the general convenience and advantages of their introduction."

As a summary of their views upon the interesting questions presented for their consideration, the Commissioners submit a copy of certain resolutions which they unanimously adopted, and which proved the basis of this report:

1. Resolved, That in the opinion of this Board the best plan for connecting the Columbia Rail Roal with the wharves on the Delaware and Schuylkill, is by a rail way beginning at Broad street and extending to both rivers, to be connected with other rail ways along Delaware Avenue and the Schuylkill front, from Cedar to Vine streets.

2. Resolved, That High street, on account of its central position, superior width, and established character as the principal seat of business with the West, presents the only eligible scite for the line of connexion between Broad street and the Delaware wharves, and that such line should pass down High to Third, down

This table presents, at a sin. gle view, the annual dividends-the aggregate amount, and the yearly average of each Bank; from which it will be seen that the highest average is over 18, while the lowest is less than 6 per cent. per anuum.

Third to Dock, and down Dock to the Drawbridge | ACOGNAGY landing.

3. Resolved, That it be recommended to Councils forthwith to commence the construction of a rail road in High street from Eighth to Broad and from Broad to Ashton, and also in Third and Dock streets, and further to take immediate measures for the removal of the markets from High street, and the establishment of suitable accommodations elsewhere.

4. Resolved, That it is not expedient for Councils to erect a public depository for merchandize on the Delaware, it being deemed better that stores for the reception of country produce and other articles of commerce on the rail way, be erected by individual enter. prise, as the same may be required.

All which is respectfully submitted.

WILKESBARRE-THE PACKET BOATS,

Navigation on Lake Ontario has been open for 88 several weeks. On Sunday last the schooner William Buckley, from Sackets Harbor, arrived at this port through the Welland Canal with over sixty passengers, emigrants. About thirty of the number stopped here -the remainder went to Cleveland. The W. B. was the first vessel that came through the canal this season. Several others, however, were in the canal at the same time, and one laden with merchandize from New York, came through immediately astern of the W. B., for which the Captain received a premium of $100, it being the first vesse! laden with New York goods that has come into Lake Erie.—Erie Observer, May 9.
