The charge of this survey, under the direction of the Acting Co nmissiorter, w as confided to Mr. William J. Hall, with such general instructions as a previous knowledge ofthe line enabled me to furnish. From the report of Mr. Ball, it appeared that there would be a difference in cost of about the sum of 25,000 in fa voi ofthe east side, which difference by sudsequent improvement in the line, has been increased 10,000. The east side was also supposed to present the safer route for a canal, inasmuch as the bank will be l...
