Originally, the main line of tho road projected from Nashville to Chattanooga, anil extended 154 mile-, mile-, mile-, but subsequent recnnoisnnces and more minute minute and elaborate surveys (through tho indefatigable indefatigable attention of Chief Engineer Grant and his nsi-t-ants) nsi-t-ants) nsi-t-ants) nsi-t-ants) nsi-t-ants) have not only improved upon tho former location location in varioussections, but have also diminished tho distance and co.t, and developed more eligible grades. There are four divisions of tho entire Road, viz: the Nashville Division, from the 1st to the 61st section1 the Winchester, from tho 62d to the I2oLh sections (and which includes in it the heaviest work of what 1 have tormed "the Charleston Division;1') the Chattanooga, from the end of the 125th to the e.-d e.-d of I52d sections; und the Shetbyville branch, containing 8 sections, exclusive of those above enu-m-ia'ed. enu-m-ia'ed. enu-m-ia'ed. enu-m-ia'ed. enu-m-ia'ed. These divisions are again subdivided and dist'ibuted among the As-ds As-ds As-ds ant Engineers the Chief Engineeratid his assistant, each maintaining a strict supervision over the whole. The Road passes through the following counties and States: It commences commences at Nashville, in Davidson county, continues through Rutherford county, through Bedford, (in which is tho branch to Siioihyville;J then 2 miles through Coffee county; then Franklin, in State of Tennessee; it then cuis jthe north eustem corner of Jiickson county, in the State of Alabama; thence it returns to Marion county, in Tennessee; thenc 3 it runs twice into I ade county, in ihe State of Georgia; ihence out again into Hamilton cou aty, Tennessee, where it finds ita terminus at the junc tion of tho Georgia State Rail; Road, ut Chattanotga, formerly known us Ross' Landing. At this pl.ace branch track forks off down to the edge of the Tennessee River, which rqlls in front of that town. At the junction of iho Georgia Road, (Western and Atlantic Road) the Company own a site of 5 acres, adjoining that of the Georgia Hoad, and have arranged arranged to use their passenger and fieight depots in common; common; thus establishing a straight track into tho Georgia line, and seeming the utmon dispatch, uninterruptedly, uninterruptedly, to the Nashville and Chattanooga .lail Road trains. The depot at Nashville embrace a site, of 2,000 foot in length and 170 feet in width, on an inclined plane, from west to east. It is most eligibly situated both in reference to iho town and trade of Nashville, and the operations of the Company. It is located west of the western limits of that corporation; having Spring street (50 feet wide) running from the wharf on tho bank of ihe Cumberland River, (or eastern side of Nashville) through the town, and opening inu, and penetrating the centre of the site. South of thaa etroet, is Berryhil! street, (also 50 feet wide.) south of 'his latter is Broad street (100 feet wide) running like Spring street, from tho river bank and wharf, and forming the southern limit of this spacious area. North of Spring street, is Union alley, 20 feet wide, at tho depot, and widening thence to the river bank. North of this, Geder street, (50 feet wide) runs front the river bank and wharf as above, through the town, and constitutes the northern limit of the said site. The Company have established two streets, each 45 feet wide, and both the whole length of their ground one of these is on tho Western corporate lino of Nashville, the otheron the Western line ofthe depot. They have also opened another street, 70 feet wide, through the middle of the site, hut this latter is for Lhe exclusive accommodation ofthe tracks for the Rail Road Company. West of this last street and contiguous to the road-bed, road-bed, road-bed, in a central position, i an engine House, (on 3 acres more) now erecting to accommodate 17 locomotives under cover. The plan of this building is semi-circular, semi-circular, semi-circular, and on a stone foundation about 9 feet high this is surmounted by a brick story of ample height and separate arched entrances for those engines. The rooTis to be covered covered with sheet iron, and coated with mineral paint. The whole design, arrangement and execution ofthe work, as far as it has progressed, (which is considerable considerable J is very substantial, tasty and in the highest degree degree creditable, both to the judgment of the Company Company and to the fidelity of tho contractors. The cost of the site, (most of which was presented, and contains 14 acres) U about $20,000 it. is now estimated estimated to be worth $100,000. Tho cost of the building building is to be $9,000 per contract. On this vast silo' too, will be established the work sho s, freight and passenger houses, &c., &.c, necessaiy for the successful successful working of the Road. Upon examining th& alignment of the Road, it will be found there is only 16 per cent of curvature, including including the mountain location, which is necessarily nearly all curved. If the location, exclusive of the mountain be taken, it shows a line. 90 per cent of which is perfectly straight. The total lengthof straight line is 134 miles and 1478 ft Do. do- do- curved do. 25 ' " 782 ft Do. do- do- stragbt and curved lines is 159 miles and 2260 ft The total distance from depot at Nashville to depot at Chattanooga Chattanooga is 151 milrs less 1 100 ft The total length of the Shelbyville Shelbyville branch is " 7 miles and 5060 ft The gradients on the main line in no instance exceed exceed 50 2-10 2-10 2-10 feet per mile on straight lines, and 44 9-10 9-10 9-10 feet on curved, except on the subdivision crossing crossing the Cumberland Mountain (in the Charleston division,) division,) there it was necessary to resort to a gradient of 105 6-lOfeet 6-lOfeet 6-lOfeet per railo, and will occasion the use of a powerful assistant locomotive Engine to enable the Company to overcome it without dividing the trains.

It may &t thi4 stage of the description be interes;-ing interes;-ing interes;-ing to you, gentlemen, to know that the passage of the main chain of the Cumberland Mountains, and the ascent of the first bench of th mountain from the waters of Duck river, controlled tho entir location location of the Road. You may not be swnre, that for 300 miles extending from tho Cumberland Gap to where the mountain abuts on tbo Tenneseee R ver, the main crest of the Mountain is unbroken, except at Montgomery's Gap, in the 91nt section The Mountain maintains an elevation of 2,000 feet above lhu sea, except at the point above mentioned, where a depression of 700 feet occurs, and at this point, the ridge is narrow enough to admit of a tunnel (2,200 feet lung, at an elevation of little more than 1,100 feet above the sen. This Gap, then, of the Cumber land, furnished the only oppnrltmily to concentrate that elevation, f-dz: f-dz: f-dz: 1,100 feet,) in a short distance, to be surmounted by an assistant locomotive. The two great features of tho location at Montgomery's Gap, are, first, that the total elev.itinn is 900 fettless than at any other point, and second, that th whole ofthe extraordinary elevation i concentrated within one and n hnlf miles on tho North Western side, nnd four nnd a half miles on the South I3atC.rn side of the Mountain, where an assistant Engine can with facility obviate the difficulty, and the ftam Engine could be employed during the interval of passing the trains in collecting arid carrying tho coal cars to the Central Depot, opposite Winchester. At Mooter point in the Mountain h tliere a ridge sufficiently narrow to admit of it tunnel; nor is there any depression in tho ridge, bo that the total ri-ennd ri-ennd ri-ennd fall had to be distributed on each side ofthe Mountain, Mountain, disjoined by its wide summit. It is manifest, therefore, that an attempt to cross tho Mountain at any other point would have pi6-ent-ed pi6-ent-ed pi6-ent-ed pi6-ent-ed pi6-ent-ed in the 000 feet of elevation to be overcome in tho great amount of curvature to which such a line thrown on the Mountain sides, must hnve been subjected subjected in the enormous cost ot which alone it could be obtained obstacles, which would have rendered it impracticable. This road wilt be tho first, and I presum. tbo only ono which will run across the Cumberland Mountain, to tap the Mississippi Valley. You will have now seen that there is no other practicable passage, except except nt the tunnel, (or 9lst section,) and tho Company Company ore secured by thotr charter, from any othr rail road '"being built, cut or constructed, in any way or manner, or by nny authority whatsoever, running laterally within 20 miles of this route, unless by said Company, or with thoconsent of tho Board of Directors Directors thereof, for the time being " The Charter further provides that the capital etock ofthe Cotrfpany shall forever be exempt from taxation, taxation, and the road, with all its fixtures and appuite-nances, appuite-nances, appuite-nances, including work shops, warehouses and vehicle! vehicle! of transportation, shall bo exempt from taxation for the period of twenty years, from the complotion of lhe road Any individual or individuals, company, or body corporate, with permission of the Legislature of the State, may hereafter construct branches to unite with the Nashville and Chattanooga rail road, and the Company ore required to receive on their road the full loaded freight cars from such branchos, nnd transport the same to their destination, and to return thorn, without changing the loads thereof, or charging charging for the transportation of the goods, wares, merchandize, merchandize, and produce therein, any greater freight than they charge for similar goods, wares, merchan-dixo merchan-dixo merchan-dixo and produce in their own care, but it provides, that the Company shall not be compelled to receive such cars on their road, unless they are constructed in the same manner, and of equal strengih with their own cars, of which the Engineer of ihe main road shall be the judge; and the further proviso, that the Company shall not be required to receive any car from such branches, without receiving payment fit atieast twenty miles transportation, and the further proviso, that the Company shall bo entitled in all respects, respects, to similar privileges on such branches constructed constructed to unite with iheirroad, subject to the same restraints. This charter is secured in three States. vizi Tennessee, Alahamaand Georgia. Charleston will therefore obtain th benefits and privileges of this road, at tho com pan lively small outlay of $500,-000, $500,-000, $500,-000, while Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York ure compelled to pay the whole cost of their roads and damages besides, for the right of way. The second point which was fixed upon, because it also controlled tho location ofthe line, was Norman's Norman's Creek for, after establishing the passage of the Mountain at Montgomery's Gap, it was important important to determine a suitable, point for the accent of the first Branch, from the Duck Rivar waters. This second point possesses the requisites of easy grades, freedom from curvature and economy in constructi-m. constructi-m. constructi-m. Murfreesboro' became a third fixed point in the line, because it presented the most desirable route from tho Barrens through Rutherford County. These being adopted every important feature in a rail road was secured in addition to the requisites secured by the second point, it furnishes long straight lines, and these on a rail road possess great va!u in the security security tbey afford against accidents. The relative value value of different grades may be seen from the following tah-fe: tah-fe: tah-fe: Upon a level grade an engine, 22 tons or 45,000 lbs wril draw 857 tons gross and 514 tons nt.

Jones dwelling, and over 11 broken range of bills ! to tho iennessee River, at Woods iluns, doling the river about 2 miles above the lower end of Lini Island. The line continues thence up McDaniels Valley, ita straight course for about 5 miles, where it approaches the river again and curving on to its hanks, follows the same to the Narrows, leaving NicknjacK Cave about half a mile on the right, ihe line here commences the ascent of Rackoon Moun tain skirting the perpendicular ctifls thai line its base at this point, it follows the Mountain side, enters enters Runningwater Valley, and pursues its tortuous wav up the ngnt side of tho same to Alley s Mill, where it crosses and follows the left side up to the summit of Running Water Gap.

After passing the Runtime Water Gap, we commence the descent of our winding way into Look Out Valley, passing near Pack's Saltpetre Cave, the Silver Mine, Obar'a, M'Gibbes, Mrs. Rice's and Parker's, Parker's, the line then passes Look-Out Look-Out Look-Out Creek about three-quarters three-quarters three-quarters ot a rane above its confluence with the T?nnt;eee River, and proceeds alone on the rkhi side of said creek to the river, where it curves around , -J -J ' " I tho point of Look Out Ml u and procoed, Iong at the j ti9 oct.U r retell Ct-aia Ct-aia Ct-aia C - - CT lb IWsd Cmt n trf- trf- rrk - tt V n ! aV7 290 fft ll Wi r.f Frrm 7"t r fuMitf tiiiot ai V v i , n t ! n ChatiawwKs. -, -, frt afwe tr r, cornbrrn. o nsnr-v nsnr-v nsnr-v sr , 1 fFtttar-. fFtttar-.

But to reumj in regard to tho topers' nature, the Company having adopted the Bridge Rail Iron, it will bo laid o Red Cedur cmtinuou bearing with Cedar joist and supporting lies.

The cedar was duly forwarded and placed in tho desiied situation and tho resident engineer of the Georgia Rail Rond Company Company Reports, that they bom the teat admirably, being fully equal to tho yellow pine for either continuous continuous bearing or cross ties. It has been ncitnined that tho heart of the best quality of this wood (rd cedarj will last at least 30 years. If cedar timhe la'd in dams, &c , wi 1 last 30 yea's, there is no good reason why the same duration may not b expected, when laid in cross tie in the Bridge Rail plan of supers! rue ture f-for f-for f-for the tie are oidy subject to a transverse pressure from tho continuous brarer, not sufficient to injure tho elasticity of tho timber, nor liable to bo rendered useless by splitting, a no treenail or spikes are driven into them. Favorable contracts have already been made by tho President of the Company, fur furnishing cedar continuous bearers for 119 and for cross ties for 51 miles. Forty miles of cross ties, are cut and hewn, and being delivered and distributed along tho Road from Nashville thirty miles of continuous bearers are in the same state of forwardness, nnd are paid for as fast as they are furnished. I examined the line critically from Nashvilla to Chattanooga, and the works in progress throughout this extent On that portion of the route embraced within Nashville and the west bank of tho Tennessee River ( 125th section J I found much greater progress than was represented by the Schedule submitted to Council, on the 5th inst by President Stkvknaon, and published with your proceedings of that date. The execution of tho work thus far is, of tho most substantial and workmanlike character, in every particular, Sections, 113, 122, 123 and 124 of the Charleston Diviion,"nrenotyot re-let, re-let, re-let, but ihey will bo no obstacle to the uninterrupted completion of the Road there wpre bidders for them in process of negociation, as I passed along that portion of the line, and I anticipate confidentelly, that the next report from the Chief Engineer's Departroer" will huw the contractors engaged upon them. 1 nose sections were originally contracted for, but tho bidders forfeited forfeited their right to continue tho original estimate. Sec 1 13 is the heaviest of the four, requiring 5!,fJ00 cubic yards of borrowed embankment to fill, and estimated estimated at $7,224 the other 3 are comparatively light work, and one of these ("See- ("See- 123 j has $735 of labour, &c. applied, before it hecamo forfeitod, x-clusive x-clusive x-clusive of the 20 per cent retained or, that amount, which makes the reletting still more eligible to tho Company.

Tho 8 sections sections will be completed in full time, to receive tho superstructure and iron rail, so that it precludes any idea of delay from their present condition. Thebal-anceofthe Thebal-anceofthe Thebal-anceofthe Chattanooga Divition is under contract with men, who are eminently capable of completing their estimates. The time to fulfil these contracts preparatory for the snppir&trueture, n fixed fir April. 1852. The 2d Sec. is the heaviest rock and embankment embankment section, between Nashvil(and 1 he Cumberland Cumberland mountains; this is expected, be ready forsuperstmcture about the 1st of July next. There iat present a temporary sidetrack neing constructed constructed over it, so as to facilitate the passage ofthe cars to Murfreesboro, on or before 4th July next. No. 64 (of "the Charleston Division") is the next heaviest section, but this is done. $1,000 of tbo estimate estimate have been retained by the Company, to dress it up wuen ready tor tod track. No. 79 (also of "the Charleston Division" is another another heavy section but mainly of mrth embankment and cutting. The estimate is $13,000 for grading.
