Description

Excerpt from Fourteenth Annual Report of the President and Directors of the Cheasapeake and Ohio Canal Company, to the Stockholders: With the Proceedings of the Stockholders in General Meeting, During the Year 1842 On consideration of the depressed condition of the affairs of the company, the most rigid system of economy has been adopt ed, in all its various departments.' All officers, not absolutely necessary to its management, have been dismissed, the salaries of others curtailed, and the wages of persons in the employment of the company, along the finished part of the line, so reduced as to correspond in some degree with wages elsewhere, and to enable us gradually to liquidate our indebtedness on that portion of the canal. The clerk's statement (c) shows the number of officers in the service of the company on the 3]st of May last, and their rate of compensation; and that marked D exhibits the pay of officers in service on the 18th of June, 1841 and 1842, respectively. By referring to the latter, it will be seen that a reduction of has been made in that branch of expenditure. A further dimian tion will be made in the course of a few more weeks.
