Novrmbrr. . b. R. H.INT, Btipl,
oome years ago, I had ocoisioo "to
journey tlirough tho wilds of tho West
and among tho many mishaps and ai
ventures 1 net with there u one which I
remember quite distinctly.
1 I had been traveling through a sec
tion of ocuqot remarkably uncultivated.
With a jaded horse at 'my heels, kt the
oloso of a stormy day in sprin, I was
ondcaTorint; to hunt up soma kind of ac
commodations 'tor the night. 1 had not
met ntu any soic of came during the
day excepting a few wild gceso, and
those I did not care to waste shot upon.
Tho . idea of sleeping , upon tho (Wat.
ground with an empty Btomachr was. not
vety sgreoable, and I thought tho sooner
1 had tomo kind ot shelter arranged the
better, i ..!'. " ".
I was about crosnina a small stream
when, a ciy as if from sorus human being
in distress arrested my movements, and
caused me to glance sharply about mo.
What a sight mat my gaze. A man,
holding above his head an unlo idcd riflo.
stood awaiting tho attack of a huxo
mountain panther. I.comprehcnded. all
in a moment, but beforo I could render
hi m th.9 least assistance tho animal was
upon him. Ho drew back a paoo, whirl
ed his nSe above his bead, and with a
tremendous crash broujht it down upon
his adversary's back." This Only infu
riatcd the panther, and with a savage
growl he rushed upon bu victim.
I Hero was not a moment to be lost
Ainrfng wall between his eyes I fired,
and as the ftnoko cleared away before me
I could see tho long budy u the pan
ih.tr stretched lifeless upon tho around,
and the man. leaning against tho trunk of
a treo, apparently unhurt. Aa 1 ap
proached him ho extended bis hand, and
in a gruff voice, laid ;
"You have saved my life, Btraiizer."
His appearance was not in the least
prepossessirg, his wbolo aspect was loath
some, and I regarded him with a feeling
of dread. I had saved his life, howover,
and perhaps I might gain from him some
information respecting a placo of shelter.
"Jly fricad. ap you Jive in this neigh
borhood f' I inquired 4,''Y'-ii
Ilatenlied that ha did.- - ZZVtl
"'i-ton; 'porhapsVyca can direot mexito
son4 p'laea wheri lkaa obtain shelter for
myself, and bf st;" "f-? r
"Thero is not a cabin' within teujnjles
of here," he replied. ' - ' ,
"No a cabin within ten miles h Why,
you just said you lived near hero 1"
"So I do," he replied evasively.
''But it's nothing but a mere oavo."
"I don't care for that," I said, "Any
p'.ace is better iban spending a night in
No, co," be returned, taking up his
ritlo. "lou had bettor stny irr the storm
to night that go with mo."
And turniDg upon his beds disappear
ed in tho woods.
This was gratitude. I almost oensured
myself for saving his life, and bo, with a
heavy heart, I mounted my weary beast
and rode on.
The night was to dark that I could
hardly discern objects three feet before
me. Largo drops of rain were begin
ning to desoend from above, striking with
a dull patter upon the dry leavcj heaped
about the road.
I rode thus for fully ten minutes when
a light resembling soma twinkling alar,
told me tnat shelter was at band. Kevgr
did a ship-wrecked, mariner hail a dis
tant sail with more rapture than I did
that dim, flickering light,
: "Pioss on, old fellow," I laid, patting
my bono upon tho neoc j "we will toon
be at rest. f,

, j It Iras not long before rdrow up at
the door of a miserable looking shanty,
and dismounting I gsvo three or 'four
. It was opened by woman whose ap
pearance did not favorably im frees mo.
i "I seek shelter from the storm, M said
to her. "Can yon lodge me and my beast
' 8he scanned me from top to toe, and
then bade me enter. I needed no sco
pnd Invitation. fJWing my hone in
charge of a man whom she represented
to be her son, I strode into the room.
I When I had placed my riflo upon tho
floor, I removed my heavy coat and drew
a ohair near the blazing fire.
"stormy night," I said to my bostoss,
who "was preparing some supper for me.
Bho grunted some kind ot an answer
and invited me to parlake of a dish of
rye bread and mush. This 1 did with a
will, and after swallowing a mug of ale,
I Kt my pipe and sat listening to the wild
roaring of the wind.
(suddenly the door was rudely thrown
open, and two men, armed almost to the
teeth, stalked in, and without nttonng a
word throw themselves upon the floor
near where I was sitting.
This movement somewhat surprised
me, but thinking that prudence was the
better part ot valor, 1 remained quiet.
To add to my discomfort, one of tho
ruffians took my rifle and coolly removed
the caps. I was about to expostulate
against this, when the dqpr wis a socond
time opened, and throe, of the most re
pulsive looking villains I had over set
eyes upon rudoly entered tho roam. Tho
unacoountahlo behavior of the first couple,
and tho unlocked for appoaranco of the
new comers, mado mo surmise that I had
taken rcfugo in a den of thieves.
I tried to laugh at the idea, but every
thing about mo impressed the horrid
truth upon my mind.
; Resolving to sell my life ns dearly as
possible, I felt for my revolver: but it
Was not in my belt ; I had left it in my
aaddlo. My trusty riflo lay a fo.v feet
Irom mo ; but what sorvioe could that
render me without any cap upon it ?
Iho gang was grouped in a corner of
tho hut, engaged in low conversation, and
I entertained not a doubt but that they
wero planning my death. I expected ev
ery moment to bo burled to the floor and
Mv first iir.milsa van In linn Inward

.Have acted upon thiss but a heavy hand
laid upon my shoulder and I was
r),uciy tnrown to the ground. Leaping
lp my fact, I unsheathed my knife
They anticipated my intention, and with
infuriated yolls thoy sprang toward ni.
I It was now lifo or death with me.
Placing my loot firmly agiinst the eido
board, I awaited the otlack. They closed
with we. My knife was knocked from
my hand, and almost a dozen bands
olulohed mo by the ,t(iro. ! i struggled
and tried to cry out, but all to no avail.
With one blow I was struck tothe ground,
a foot stamped upon my breast, a kuife
flashed above mo. I olosed my eyes and
broathod a short prayer. But hark 1 The
door is thrown open with a crash, and a
void ot authority thunders.
'-'Hold 1 you cowardly villains ! Harm
one hair in that man's head and you die I"
The wretches released mo, and slunk
doggedly away. With one bound I was
upon my foct. Grasping my preserver
by tho hand, in a tremulous vuico I cried,
'God bless you, si.-; you havo saved
"Have 1 1" he replied, with something
like a laugh. "Then wo are even. Do

I looked closer into his dark face, and
with a pleasure recognized tho man
whoso life I had saved not five hours be
fore. He was the leader of that barbar
ous gang, and had it not been for his
timely arrival my death I -fear, would
have prevented me from realizing an out-

; No great enterprise, was ever begun
about whioh so little .has been said and

1 For a dozen years we have heard that
a great I'acifio Railroad teal to be built,
and a dozen names and a dozen oompan

ufged upon Congress as tho greatest and

touched by the sharp point of practical
The-absolute -necessity for, a Pacifie
Railroad to retain and bind more closely
together tho eastern and western extremes
of tho oontinent in one great United and
P.naRc country, tho inmeoSe cost of
government transportation to its frontier

greater cost of Indian wars; in a ragion
that nothing but a railway could civilize.
and nothing but civilization could pacify

Congress, that it dotormined that tho

of additional ' territory would be opened
for settlement ; vast bodies nf land now

siruction of 2,00QmiIeof railroad through

THE COMPANY'S CHARTER AND
This darter was granted and porfeo-
tnd by various acts of Congress, and the
Company pomprises men or the highest

It has been proved, alrcldy, that the
entire interest on the Eft
bonds advanoed by the Government
be saved more than twioi over in the
consequent diminution of Government
expenses) in the region through which
luu rvou nai-ncn.
Surveying parties were At onoe pushed
out in various direotlons .aoross the con
tinent to find and bcate the best availa
ble line between the Missouri River and
the Pacifie Oeean. This Was established
at Omaha, in Nebrask, on the east, and
w'01 finally be at 8an Francisco,' in Cali
fornia, on the west a distance of nearly
l,P0O miles. The Chicjgo and North
Western Railroad is now completed from
Chicago toOmaba, a distance of 492
miles and several other roads jure rapid-
buikling to unite with the" Union Pa
tio at tie same point; so that .its east
ern connections will be numerous and
oomplete. ' ' t ,.:
The general line of the road from
Omaha is ' west up the -Valley of the
Great Platte, and thence across the
loins a distance of 17 miles, to the
Black Hills, or easterly spur of the
Rocky Mountains. 'Col. Sey meter, the
Consulting Engineer, reports that the
grade muo'i more favorable than was
anticipatedr-t h e maximum to the
Rocky Mountains not exceeding 80 feet
the milo, and from that point to the
sdrumit, ot divide of the continent, it will
exceed 80 to the mile. From the Rooky
Slountains, the best praotical 'route will
be taken to Great Salt Lako City, and
thence by the Valley of the Ilumbolt
River to tho eastern base of the Sierra
Nevada Mountains. The Central Pacific
Railroad i now being rapidly built east
from .Saoramonto City, Cal., and is al
ready eompleted about 100 miles, and
will connect with the Union Psoifio.
WHAT HAS BEEN DONE AND ITS
As we remarked before, there has
been very little talk, and a great, deal of
work. Almost before the publio were
aware, it had been' begun. ' On the First
f January, 1867, the Union Paoifio
Railroad wasnii&ed for 305 miles west
from -Omaha,' and fully equipped with
Locomotives, Rolling Stook, Repair
Shops, Depots, Stations, &o. and the
Company have en hand Iron, Ties, and
other, materials, sufficient to finish the
road to the Rocky Mountains, or 517
miles from Omaha, by the first of Sept.
1867. It is expected that the whole
line through to California will be com
ploted in 1870.
The first 805 miles was graded, bridged
and ironed, with a heavy T rail, and sup
plied with suitable Depots, Repair Shops,
Stations, Locomotives, Cars, and all the
necessary appurtenances' of a first-class
road, for $50,000 per mile, and it is be
lieved tbat the remaining portion will
not increase the average cost to more
than 166,000 per mile, exelusive of equipments.

MEANS FOR CONSTRUCTION.
When . the Government determined
(bat tbe road must be built, it also de
termined (o osako the most ample pro
vision to render its speedy construction
beyond a doubt.
lst.--THa Grant op Money. The
Government issues to the Company its
Six per'ecnt. Thirty-year Bonds at the
rate of $16,000 per mile for the whole
road,: and, in addition, for 150 miles
across the Rooky Mountains this grant is
trebled, making it $48,000 per mile ; and
from the termination of this so'ion to
the Paliforoia line (about 898 miles,) the
grant is doubled, making 832,000 per
mile, the whole amount being $44,208,
000. Thcso bonds are issued by the
Government only qn the completion of
twenty miles, and after the Commissioners
appointed by the Presidontof the Uni-
ted States have eertified tbat it is thor
oughly built and supplied with all the
machinery, do., of a first olass rail-road.
The Interest. on these bonds is paid by
U. 8. Treasury, and the Government re
tains, as a sinking fund to be applied to
repayment of principal and interest, one
half the regular charges made for trans
pbrtatioi) by the Company against it
These bonds, which are a seoond mort
gage, are not due for thirty years, and it
i not improbable that the value of the
ssjrviees.io.be rendered to the Govern
ment during that period will constitute
a! sinking fund roflioienti for their re
demption at maturity.;'. '" 1
