The Un ; on Transportation Company was* organ
ized under great doubts as (o its financial eaccess,
without solicitation from its proprietors, and
ag-oustthe principles which the Board then re
cognized as those which should govern Railway
Companies; 1 in the management of their aflairs.
But its establishment, under the circumstances
that then existed, was considered necessary to the
success of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company,
mid its results have fully justified its organization.
Since your Company has acquired control ol its
extended western connections, east of the Mis
sissippi. and removed the obstructions that in
terrupted a.lrce flow ot traffic over your railway
Irora the trades centres ot the West to those of
the East, the mission of the Transportation Com
pany has been fulfilled, and its continuance in the
sphere it occupied is no longer important to your
It was contemplated on the organisation ol the
"Feunsylvania Company" "to manage your west
ern connections in the manner pointed out in pre
vious reports, that it should fill the place occu
pied by lito t-'nion Transportat ion Company. It
has, however, required time to get these exten
sive works into, harmonious and efficient action,
and to fully understand their traffic. The Penn
e>)lvr;nid Company is now ready to assume this
duty, and ui rangemeuls have been made tor the
transfer of the property and franchises of the
Transportation Company to It, which will be car
tied into effect jis early as the transfer can be
properly made. The actual \afiuc of the property,
consisting ot cars, wharves, offices,
shops and sidings, tube thu.^'transferred is esti
mated—without its good wiil--at over f.’5,tW0.000
and it has b . mi purchased by the “Fennsy ivunta
Company" for three millions of its Common
Stock at par. thus interesting individuals of cr.
perience in the management of this great enter
prise—a consideration of material impoitance and
value. 1
The Utfion Line having fulfilled the objects Unit
this Company had in view at its establishment, in
a mann--i satisfactory to its employers, it i« grati
fying to be able to state that it has been so effi
cientlymaLaged that it has also proven a pecuniary
success to its shareholders. Their proflts have,
however, been mainly derived from transporta
tion oyer ihe extended system of railways west ot
Pittsburgh and east of Philadelphia, under con
tracts of their own proenrement. with the Compa
nies whose roads tneircirs traversed. The high
rates of transportation thr.‘ prevailed during ihe
rebellion yielded very profitable results to the
line, as w-rll as t » your Company—the through
rates over the Pennsylvania .Railroad in many
cases having been twice those charged upon its
local iroi"h!.s
It will al.-o IfO
remembered :a thi« connection
that neither law nor p-ihiic opinion would at the

the increasing cost of Us production in Great

consumed in this and other countries is at present
procured. The analysis ol these ores also shows
that many of*them are well adapted to the manu.
fact arc of Bessemer steel.
The facilities for the distribution of freights in
Philadelphia were not enlarged, in 187 J, to the ex-
tent desired. The City Councils promptly acted
npon the suggestion contained in the last Annual
Report of this Company in relation to the con
struction ol a Railway along the Delaware front
bet wee’ll Christian and Dock streets, but the •law’s
deity’’has prevented, daring the past J’ear, the
fompletion of the improvements desired. The
property owners upon the Delaware front, though
anxious for the construction of the work, have not
given to it their active co-operation, and. in couse
qaensc, the improvements so much needed by the
commercial interests of the city cannot be finished
before the ensuing summer or autumn. In the
meanwhile the existing facilities for the accommo
dation of freights on market street are being
seriously encroached upon.
The erection of additional elevators for grain
traffic nas also become important, though it is be
lieved that these may be supplied by private en-
The connectitsn referred to in our last annual re“
port between the Pennsylvania Railroad and the
Pittsburgh. Virginia and Charleston Railway,.
cro-sing the Monongahela River above the month
of Turtle Creek, has been commenced, and if
practicable it will be completed this year. Its
construction Inis become a necessity from the im.
possibility of passing freight trains from the Pitts
burgh. Cincipnatti and St. Louis Railway through
Gram's iiill Tunnel without great delay. The
cost of this connection is estimated at $350 00!).
The Pittsburgh. Virginia and Charlestown Rail
way, which Is to extend along the valley of the
Monongahela to the State line of Virginia, is under
contract as far ns Monongahela City, and will be
opened to that- point ithirty miles) during the en
suing summer.
Arrangements liu't been entered into yvi'h the
city of Pittsburgh by which nearly ail of Hie streets
of that city will be passciTover or under the Penn
sylvauia Railroad, which wiR involve an outlay by
this Company very little short of one million of
dollars, an expenditure which it is to be bopejl

admirably adapted to the traffic of this Port, and
possess accommodations for passengers, both first'
class and emigrant, equal in comfort and
to any of the steamers that ply between Europe
and America. The execution of the work by
Messrs. Cramp & Sons, as far as it has progressed,
has been faithfully done, and appears to be fnlly
equal in character and substantiality to that of any
efthe European built steamers. The ships wLI
have all the modern economic improvements, and
wifi not cost on completion much, if any, more,
than they could now be built for In Great

and enterprising merchants of this city, has been

Since your last annual meeting the Board of Di
rectors have lost the services of three esteemed
George Black, resident Director in Pittsburgh,
whose decease occurred in Augnat last. Uis prac
tical business talents and devotion to the interests
of the Company were always of great service, and
highly appreciated. To fill the vacancy caused by
Mr. Black’s death, Mr. John Scott, of Pittsburgh,
a gentleman long Identified with the manufactur
ing and leading interests of that city, was duly
elected by the Board.
Washington Butcher, whpsc decease occurred?
early in the present year. Mr Bntchc r became a
member of the Board in December, 1849, and al
ways served the interests of this Company with
great fidelity and efficiency. As his successor,
Samual M. Felton has been chosen. Hie long ex
perience and sound judgment in all departments
of railway management cannot but prove fienefl
cial to your interests. Owing to failing health,
Joseph B. Myers, a member of the Board for the
past ten years, has been compelled to tender bis
resignation as a Dirctor of yonr Company. This
vacancy haq been filled by the election of A. J.
Dcrbeshire, at a former time ah efficient member
of the'Board, and who In a always evinced a desp
interest in everything concerning the Company’s
we Hare.
ThomaaT. Firth, the Treasurer of this Cojnpany
for many years past, was compelled, on account of
his impaired health, to tender hia resignation to
the Board, and thereby be relieved from the active
duties of that position. The Board accepted the
