Richmond and York River Railroad.
--An adjourned meeting of the stockholders of the Richmond and York River Railroad was held at West Point, in King William county
, on Wednesday last, to elect a President and a Director.
, the President
of the road from its organization to that hour, declined a re-election, because of the continued sacrifices the office required of him, and could not be persuaded to change that determination.
The stockholders, finding that Mr. Dudley
would consent to serve no longer, elected Robert Saunders
, of Williamsburg
, to fill that post.
is a thorough business man, exceedingly popular along the line of the road and with all who know him, and will no doubt make an excellent officer.
They also elected as their Director, John Pollard
, of King
; and then, after reconsidering the resolution requiring the New York and Richmond Coal Company to commence the building of their branch road during the year, and giving the Directory entire control over that subject, adjourned.
