.Blairstown, N.J. PRINCIPAL OFFICE....

.New York City, N.Y. ENGTH OF ROAD--Bridgeville to Clarkesville Junction

21.04 miles Second track, including sidings, etc., 24 miles. OLLING STOCK-Supplied by Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad Co.

The Warren Railroad Company was chartered on the 12th February, 1851. Jonstruction was conimenced in 1855, and the road opened in June, 1856. On the 27th January, 1854, an agreement was made with the Delaware, vackawanna and Western Company, and the Central Company of New Jersey, whereby the former agreed to subscribe $150,000 to its share capital and guarantee $300,000 of its bonds, and the latter to subscribe the same amount of stock and to guarantee $250,000 of its bonds. These sums, with the amount of stock taken by contractors and others, constituted the means of building the road. As it was designed to form a part of the line of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad, that Company agreed to take a perpetual lease of it, paying therefor 7 per cent. annually, on its cost. The balance of the means necessary for its construction was raised chiefly through sales of stock, which has been increased to $1,024,600. In 1857 the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Company became embarrassed and unable to pay the stipulated rent. By way of compromise, the holders of the stock agreed to reduce the rate of interest to be paid in future from 7 to 54 per cent. For the past year, however, the Company paid six per cent. on the stock, and it proposes, should its income warrant it, to pay the rate originally agreed upon. The road is an expensive one, and a long tunnel is still in process of construction. This when completed will shorten the road 2.27 miles, and reduce the grade to the minimum on the Central Railroad, that is 21 feet to the mile. SHARE CAPITAL-Authorized, $1,250,000, in $25,000 $50 shares.
