On September 3rd the Boston and Maine Railroad was chartered to build a railroad between Boston, Massachusetts, and Portland, Maine.

The Boston and Lowell RR was chartered first on June 5, 1830, one of the very first railroads in the US.  The Boston and Maine RR proper wasn't charted until 1835.

And the Boston and Lowell RR was chartered to build between Lowell and Boston, both in Massachussetts.  Lowell was a fairly major manufacturing center at the time.
