Railroad Extension - Important Improvements. - The Oswego and Syracuse Railroad company have perfected their arrangements for reaching the upper harbor through a tunnel, and has secured title, to the river lots lying between Water street and the River above the Iron Bridge. It will be seen by reference to the proceeding of the Common Council in this paper, that the company ask permission to occupy Water street from its southern extremity to Market street, at the North end of the City Hall, crossing Bridge street, and also to run down under the Western abutment of the Iron Bridge on the East side of the city Hall, and pass along the docks to the Lower Harbor.

It is contemplated by the Company to extend the channel of the river so that vessels can pass up to Utica st., and to construct extensive coal "pockets" or depots, where coal can be discharged from the road and spouted into the vessels. This is an important undertaking for the company, and once which will draw a large trade to the City, and should receive every encouragement the Common Council can give, with due regard to the interests of the city and of individuals.
