Line of Road.-Cincinnati, Ohio, to Dayton, Ohio (with third Rail).60.13 miles. Second track, 8.15, and sidings, 22.93 miles. Gauges, 4 feet 10 inches and 6 feet.

The wide track was laid to accommodate the cars of the Atlantic and Great Western Railroad between Dayton and Cincinnati. The Dayton and Michigan, and the Cincinnati, Sandusky and Cleveland Railroads use the narrow track between the same points; and the Cincinnati, Richmond and Chicago, and the Junction (Cincinnati and Indianapolis) Railroads between Hamilton and Cincinnati. The Dayton and Michigan, and the Cincinnati, Richmond and Chicago Railroads are operated by the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton Railroad Company under lease.

Their accounts are kept separately.

On the 28th of April, 1869, a contract was entered into with the Erie Railway Company, whereby the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton Company, in consideration of the payment of the sum of $180,000, in monthly installments, granted to the Erie Company the exclusive use of the broad (6 feet) track of the former, with suitable depot facilities—the C., H. & D. Co. retaining their local traffic, but withdrawing from competition for the New York business. The C., H. & D. Co. are to move the trains and handle such freight as the Erie Company may require, but at the expense of the latter, in addition to the rental—the amount to be in proportion to the wheelage of the two parties, and paid monthly.

An arrangement has also been made with the Cincinnati, Sandusky and Cleveland Company, whereby the C., H. & D. Company receives the full local business of the former, giving in exchange therefor the business of the C., H. & D. Company to all local points on said C., S. & C. line, and uniting with the latter in a through eastern business. By agreement with the Dayton and Michigan Railroad, the C., S. & C. RR. is to have the preference to all points to which it forms the shortest line. On the other hand, all traffic west of their line, including Detroit and Canada, is not to be competed for by the Cincinnati, Sandusky and Cleveland Company.

Rolling Stock (April 1, 1869).—Locomotives, 33; cars--passenger, 31; mail, bag. gage and express, 13; freight, 483. Total, 522.

Operations for the year ending March 31, 1869. — Trains run (passenger, 255,063 ; freight, 220,742, and other, 33,611) 509.416 miles. Passengers carried, 642,583, and freight moved, 508,692 tons.
