RAIL ROADS IN MASSACHUSETTS,! AND NEW YORK. v- We have previously alluded to the rapid -extension of railways throughout New Eng- land under the impulse of private capital and well-directed enterprize. We have also re- marked that judicious and well-constructed " railways, based upon existing business, would be likely to pay as well as improved real es- tate. Developements are daily confirming this. In the late message of Gov. Briggs to the legislature of Massachusetts, we find the following remarkable statement of the results of the railway undertakings in that state : " There is now in successful operation, within the limits of Massachusetts, seven hundred miles of rail road. These roads cost about $28,00J,000. The average value of this stock is above par, and their average .dividends exceeds 6 per cent." He justly observes " The amount of their dividends shows the wisdom of the investment of the capital which Kuilt them, the amount of business done upon them, and their great publ...
