The ParllleRallroatl IntrHitlnir Ac. coant or lie Completion How the l.aat Kail was IjiIU Tbe Bpeerheo, tbe Prayer, the Jubilation. We find in the Chicago Tribune the fullrst and completest account yet pub lished of the notable and historic event of Monday, the 10th alt., at Promontory Point in Utah the nnion of tbe two grand divisions of the trans-continental railway. . It is of so much interest that we reprint the larger part of it : Early Monday morning, '' Governor Stanford and party from the Pacific coast were on tbe ground. At half-past eight an engine, with a palace and two pnssen ger cars, arrived from the east, bringing Vice President llurant and Directors Duff and Dillon, of the Union Pacifio road: General Casemont; L.W. Co, Su periutendentof the Pacific Union express company ; uoionei r. u. uead, buperin tended of Indian Affairs; S. B. Keed Superintendent of Construction of the Union Pacifio road ; Rev. Dr. Todd and Mrs. Theodore Clapp. of Pittsueld; lien erals Ihrie and Drew, and many others, including several Mormon apostles. After a hearty exchange of congratulations, tbe preliminaries of the celebration were speedily ended. Both parties being at last in readiness, the ties were thrown dawn on the open space of about one hundred feet, and the employes of the two companies approached with the rails to Gil the gap. J. H. Stenbridge, sub-contractor, who has had charge of the build ing of the Central Pacific from the laying of tbe first rail on the bank of the Sacra mento, commanding a party of Chinese track layers, advanced from the west with Assistant General Superintendent Corning, who bad the general supervision and hnal arrangement The Chinamen, consoious that the strangers from the far East were watch' ing their movements with curious eyes, wielded the Dick, shovel and sledge with consummate dexterity; but their faces wore an appearance of nncopcern that was wonderful if real, and not tbe lens so if affected. White laborers from the East did their best work, but with more indi cation of a desire te produce aa effect, and at eleven a.m. tbe European and Asiatio private soldiers Qf civilization stood face to face in tbe heart of America, each nroadlv conscious that the work was well done, each exultant over the victory won. Eogine No. 119 from the Atlantic, and JuDiter No. CO from tbe Pacific, each decorated with flags and evergreens for toe occasion, men ap proached within a hundred feet from op Dosite directions, and saluted with exul tant screamp. Superintendent Nanden bugh now attached the -telegraph wires to the last rail, so that each blow of the sledge should be recorded on every con-neotino- teleirranh instrument between San Francisco and Portland, Maine. It was also arranged so that corresponding blows should be struck on the bell in the city hall at Sao Francisco, and the last one fire a caunon in the batteries at Fort Point- General A. K. P. Sitlord, in ben< ot the territory of Arizona, presented a spike composed of iron, gold and silver, as an offering by Arizona, saying : t' Ribbed with iron, clad in silver, .and crowned with geld. Arizona presented her offering to the enterprise that has banded every continent and dictated a new pathway to commerce." The crowd fell back at the reel nest of General Casement, and the artist of tbe Union Pacifio railroad photographed the scene, with locomotives confronting each other, and Chinese and Caucasian labor ers confronting the work. It was now annonocd that the last blow was to bs Struck. Every head was uncovered in rpvprential silence, while Rev. Dr. Todd, Of Pittsfield, Mass , offared np the follow ing Dnet ana aeepiy impressive invoca tion I " Almighty God, oar Heavenly Father and God ot tbe creation, and tbe waters of the earth, in whom we move, and live and bave our being, we acknowledge Tbea to be the God of the creation of the human mind, with its power and suc cesses. On this beautiful day, in pres ence of these lovely hills and this golden summit, we render thanks that Tbou hast by tliistasans bronchi together the Est and the West, and'bound tlsm together by this strong band of nnion. We im nlore Thee that thou wilt bless this work of our hands, which we have now com pleted this monument of our labor ; and that Thy blessing may rest upon it so long as the bjlls remain. And we thank Thee lor the blejiings Jhoa hast con ferred on os and other oations. Bless our future ant those whom Thon hast ap pointed to copduct us. To Thee, to Thy Son, Jems Christ, be all honor and glory ascribed, world without end. Amen. ' The magnificent tieoi laurei.on wnicn was a commemorative piaie oi aiiver, was brought forward, put in place, and Dr. Harkness, in behalf of the State of California, presented Governor Stanford the gold spike, in aa address, concluding as follows: " it is In this tsoae uu ie:uornia. within whose borders ant by whose citi tnm tha Pacific railroad was inaugurated, desirfs te express ber appreciation of the vast' JiptoitaBee J;ef and ber sister States of ti8 prea; enterprise yblcli, by your joint action, if about to be constinj mated. from ber wines pf gol4 she has forged a spike ; from her laurel woods ihe has hewn a tie; and by the hands of her citizen the offers them to become a prt of ibe great highway which it about to unite her in close fellowship with her sisters of the Atlantic. From her bosom was taken theHrst rail. Let bers be tbe last tie and the last spike. With them accept the hopes andVisheg of her peo ple, and that tbe success of your enter prise may not stop short of its brightest premises. President Stanford, of the Central Pacific railroad, responded as follows: " Gentlemen : The Pacific Railroad Company accept with pride and satis faction these golden and silver tokens of your appreciation of the importance of our enterprise to the material interests of the sections which you represent on this occasion, and the material interests of our whole country, east, west, north and south. These gifts shall receive a fitting place in the superstructure of our road. And before laying the ties and driving the spikes ia completion of the Pacific railroad, allow me to express the hope that the great importance which you are pleased to attach to our under taking may be in all respects fully real ized. The line of roads connecting tbe Atlantio and Pacifio, and affording to commerce a new transit, will prove, we trust, the speedy forerunner of increased facilities. The Pacifio railroad will, as boob as commerce shall begin fully to realize its advantages, demonstrate the necessity of such improvements in rail roading as to render practicable the transportation of freights at much less rates than are possible under any system which has thus far been anywhere adopted. Tbe day is not far distant when three tracks will be found neces sary to accommodate the commerce which will seek transit across the conti nent. Freights will then move only one way on each track, and at rates of speed that will answer tbe demand of cheap ness and time. Cars and engines will be light and heavy, according to speed re quired and weight to be transported. In conclusion, I will add, we hope to do ul timately what ia now impossible on long lines transport ore and products for all distances at living rates to trade. Now, gentlemen, with your assistance, we will proceed to lay the last rail, the last tie, and drive the last spike." General Dodge, in behalf of the Uaion Pacific railroad, responded as follows : i "Gentlemen: Tbe great Benton proph esied that some day a granite statue of Columbus would be erected on the high est peak of the Rocky Mountains point ing westward, denoting tbis as the great route across the continent. You have made that prophesy this day. Accept this as the way to India." t. A. t attle, lfom tbe State ot Neva da, presented a silver spike on behalf of the citizens of Nevada, with the follow ing remarks : " To the iron of tbe but and the gold of the West, Nevada adds ber link of sil ver to span tbe continent and wed tbe irons." Thereupon Superintendent Coe, in be half of the Pacifio Union Expreis, prei sented the sledge with which to drive tbe last spike. Governor Stanford and Vice President Durant advanced, took in hand the sledge, and drove the spike, while the multitude stood silent bdgar Miles, ot Sacramento, who was chairman of the meeting, announced the great work done. The silence of the multitude was broken and a great cheer went forth, which) while it yet quivered on the gladdened air, was caught up by the willing lightning and borne to tbe uttermost parts ot tbe eartn. Cheer followed cheer for tbe onion of tbe Atlantio and the Pacific, the two Pacifio railroad comDaniei and their otbeers, and the President of the United States. All was over. " Glory to God in tbe highest; on earth peace and good will to men. The Odd Fellows Vote Down Negro Equality. The grand encampment of Odd Fl- lows, of Pennsylvania, at ita receat ses sion, voted down a proposition to strike the word " white " from the constitution and by-laws of tbe Order-f It seems that the infernal nigger frenzy has even pen etrated into tbe council chambers of this ancient order we are happy to ssy, only to be kicked out But don't the Odd Fellows of Pennsylvania know that they are behind tbe times? Are they not afraid that their action will be de nounced as a relic of barbarism? Are they ignorant of tbe fact that the whole power of Grant's administration is to be employed to force negroes into the differ ent trade anions of the country 1 A com mencement bas been made at tbe Gov ernment printing efflce at Washington. Have tbe Udd fc el lows ot rennsvivania yet to learn that the negro is " a nan and a brother V ' But sincerely, it is gratifying to know that there is so much sound sense in the order of Odd Fellows, as this action ex hibits. In these degenerate days it is quite refreshing to record so creditable an act as tbis. It shows that there is still some regard for decency and correct principles lurking in the bosoms ef the bite men of Pennsylvania, And the fact that this proposition only received o or three favorable votes in the Grand Encampment, may bs regarded as aa evidence of returning reason.

Yoa are full nee a month, and I every night" . tUo Period. 1 Short Htorlen. No doubt one of the most agreeable things in literature is a thoroughly good short story. At the same time it is one of tbe most difficult to obtain. We have few or no trained writers in tbis branch or composition. Our professional nov elists rarely attempt tha short story, and when they do, are far from increasing their reputation thereby. Since the time of Poe there bas been no one eminently limpet. ful in this branch no one whose invention or art has been sufficient for great success. A good short story should nave one fresh, central incident, two or three well conceived and sharply drawn characters, a certain symmetrical unity in construction, a deep significance in tbe catastrophe or climax not neceasa. rily a moral, as ordinarily understood, but as nothing should be purposeless, the short story should illustrate some defect or virtae in human character, or portray some special experience whereby tbe imagination of the reader may be gratiued, bis sympathies awakened, .or his knowledge of the world increased. It is not easy to fix the limitations to the short story. Its construction is an art, tar more so than is generally believed ; it has its laws, and bears very nearly the the same relation to the novel that the song does to poetry, which always prop erly possesses one definite idea thrown into a compact, symmetrical form. Writers of short stories cannot hope to attain success nnlesstbey make this form of composition a profound study; they must bave brevity of expression, con ception of character, keen feeling for unity and symmetry in art, and very decided dramatic perceptions. All tbeee qualifications are necessary, but many of them can be acquired by study. There is no reason why we should not have a corps of men and women especi ally trained in tbis Jiranch of art, and capable ot producing a regular supply of highly-enjoyable novels in minia ture.
