Utica, Chenango & Susquehanna Valley Rail Road.
President Lawrence has just issued his Annual Report of the
condition of our Road, of which the following is a condensation:
"The amount of Capital Stock now subscribed is $1,316,000. At the present date the Treasurer has received $978,134.25, and $871,178.20, for which we have a little over 21 miles of road in good running order, one and one half miles of branches, three first-class engines, three first-class passenger cars, one baggage, fifteen platform, and ten box cars.
"We have at Utica a good engine-house, with capacity for four engines, with a machine and repair shops attached, 250 feet long by 34 feet wide, all of brick; also a good freight house and office 110 feet by 20 feet. Thirty feet of the east end of this building is two stories high, the upper story being fitted up for our Chief Engineer.
