The State of New York has appropriated about $1,000,000 to aid in the construction of the A. & S. Railroad, This does not appear as a part of the capital of the Company, having been a free grant.

The Albany and Susquehanna Railroad Company was leased in February, 1870, to the Delaware and Hudson Canal Company for ninety-nine years, upon the following conditions : The Delaware and Hudson Canal Company is to pay an interest of 7 per cent. upon $7,000,000, made up as follows: On paid stock, $2,500,000 ; on the Albany City bonds, $1,000,000; on 1st mortgage bonds, $1,000,000; on 2d mortgage bonds, $2,000,000; on equipment bonds, $500,000. To meet this interest will require an annual outlay of $190,000. The Delaware and Hudson Company assume the interest on all the bonds from March 1, 1870, ensuing, but the interest on the $2,500,000 of stock is not to be assumed until January 1, 1871. The 9,500 shares of subscribed stock upon which 10 per cent. was paid, are to be paid in full as the necessities of the road may require.
