The Sacramento Valley Railroad extends from Sacramento to Folsom, a distance of twenty-two and a half miles. Operations commenced February 22d, 1856; since which time the transactions of the company have been eminently successful. It is proposed to extend this road to several of the interior cities of the State, and operations have been already commenced for the extension of the road to the Yuba River, a distance of forty-two miles.

The following extract from the Report of the company for 1851, will exhibit the business of the road:

Number of passengers transported 82,450

Tuns of freight transported 34,430

Total receipts from passengers and freight $177,842

Total cost of opening road and maintenance 86,503

Net earnings 91,339


Organized 1858. Length of road, (Vallejo to Marysville,) eighty-six miles; distance from San Francisco to Vallejo by water, twenty-two miles. In the course of construction.

The road will, when completed, afford a shorter and more direct communication between the cities of San Francisco and Marysville, and be of incalculable advantage to the district of country through which it passes.
