The second statement is now, we believe, for the first time published in its present shape ; and we commend it to the careful study of those who would comprehend the value of the Provincial market to some of the leading branches of American indos try. With reference to some articles, it will be seen that our exports to the Pror iuces exceed the total of exports to all other countries ; and, in more numerous instances, exports to the Provinces surpass in value our exports to any one of the Det populous countries of the old world. The claims of the Provinces to be classed amongst the best customers of the United States seems, therefore, to be fairly estab. lisbed. 1.-Imports and Erports from and to Canada and the British North American Pronse. embraced within the Reciprocity Treaty, from June, 1853, to June, 1864.

ANALYSES OF RAILROAD REPORTS. No. 10.

1. Pittsburg, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railivay.-11. Nlinois Central Railroad.-III. Chicago

and Rock Island Railroad.

PITTSBURG, FORT WAYNE AND CHICAGO RAILWAY. The Pittsburg, Fort Wayne, and Chicago Railway Company are a reorganization of the P. F. W. & C. Railroad Company, which in 1856 (August 1) had been formed by consolidating three original companies whose lines conjointly connected the cities of Pittsburg, Pa., and Chicago, Ill. The latter, having become involved in debt, was sold out under foreclosure on the 24th October, 1861, and purchased by the agents of the present company, formed February 26, 1862, to which the property was finally conveyed March 1, 1862. This change having been made with the sanction of the stock and bondholders of the old corporation, involved no business revolution, but was simply an amendment in financial arrangement for the benefit of all interests. Since this period the reorganized company have made four annual reports, from which we compile the following statements showing their material and financial condition at the close of each year, and the operations of the company for the four years from January 1, 1862.

RAILROAD AND ROLLING STOOR,

The main railroad of the company is 468 miles long; and in reference to its total jength in equ valent single track at the end of each year bas exhibited the following changes :

The late Cleveland, Zanesville, and Cincinnati Railroad, commonly called the “ Akron Branch,” 61 miles, was purchased by the company in 1865. This road extends from Hudson to Millersburg, Ohio, crossing the P., F. W. and C. Railway at Orrville, 124 miles from Pittsburg, 38 from Hudson, and 23 from Millersburg.

Since July !, 1865, the company has operated under lease the Newcastle and Beaver Valley Railroad, from Homewood, (35 m. W. from Pittsburg) to Newcastle, 16 miles.

The use of that portion of the company's railroad between Pittsburg and Rochester, 26 miles, is rented to the Cleveland and Pittsburg Company at $85,000 per annum.

By agreement dated December 16, 1862, the P., Ft, W. and C. and the C. and P. railroad companies consolidated their gross earnings, the aggregate to be divided to the first named in the proportion of 734 per cent, and to the latter of 264 per cent, An amendment to this agreement, made Feb. 16, 1866, provides that whenever the gross earnings of either road shall exceed the per centage fixed, such excess shall be equally divided between the contracting parties.

The number of locomotives and cars owned by the company at the close of each fiscal year has been as follows:
