FROM THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS.
The Greatest. Railway Enterprise of the
Nineteenth Century—A Proud National
Spectacle—Will the Enterprise Pay
- Bow the Governmeat Aids the Project.
The civilized world stood awe stricken
:tindamiiied at the vast resources of strength.
the .A.merleadnation developed in raising,
• • .
sustaining and moving-the • mighty armies
for and against the Union :in the recently
• rebellion, and everywhere.
Went UP he one universal exclamation of
wonder , nd admiration—" Great are the
people!" And yet grand and inspiring,
truly at ful and sublime as was that'
, spectacle, our country to-day, robed_ in
peace and smiling in recuperated energies,
presents on a more pacific field to again chal-•
lenge an &win the world's admiration, a btill
mightier spectacle and one which should
fire the public heart with enthusiastic
pride and earnest emotion. In war Amer
tea had the most gigantic armies: of brave
and daring men the world had ever seen.
In peace she presents such an army as few
nations could muster together, of skilled
'laborers lighting under the banner of In-
SiustrY, smoothing the I way for the march
of -empire and -B.4Vance• of ;civilization.
Bidden in the shadows of the rtigged and
ragged Rocky Mountains, where...they are
strangers to even straggling rays of the
'fresh morning sun, labor and toil, strike
and drive fully twenty.thousand muscular
heroes, upon whom has fallen the god-like
'task ofbinding together the great Atlantic
and, Pacific oceans by one continuous
Iron chain forged in the crucible of civiliza
tion. Their's is no uncommon labor. Break
ing down the. massive barriers thrown up
by nature to hem-in the populous east and
. west, and laying a broad-pathway-for the
Iron horse to speed Upon, is a task whi:ffi,
.even the shrewdest , and-most learned of
the scientific who went before us deemed
impractical as the tunneling of. the At
;antic seems to-day. The American people
dreani lessthan they realize. Projects are
hardly developed till they are consumme
, ted. Rivers, plains, prairies and .moun
tains present no obstacles to,the enlarged
intellect' and Mighty enterprise of the-
nation and the culmination of the latter
attributes .of thEepeople :is in the work
now going on steadily, systematically and
certainly, away out in the region we have
been taught to. call the far, far west,,but
which is in reality the true keystone of the
country. The stroke. of the:hammer and •
_sound of the axe is heard in the sharp cut
' canons or on the snow covered peaks of the
Rocky Mountains, ringing out the grand-'
est anvil chorus the world has ever
. heard, and millions of. people in the east
and in the west catch the refrain and chant
• it as a heaven hymn thried.to mark
the march of Civilization and ever atten
• 'There cheerfully toil this vast army of
laborers, and as a fruit of their systematic
and combined efforts, seven hundred and
fifty miles of as smooth and compact a rail
wayas there is in the world stretches its
lenglh in a line almost as straight as that
described by the. flight of a cannon ball,
towards the point where goeth down the
• 'sun. The magnitude of the unfinished
work yet before them sinks into the ordi
nary and common-place as we view what
has been so well anti rapidly accomplished
in the rear. The puffine ' and fretted Rico
:, motive has been coaxed and inveigled over
the highest summit on a smooth, solid
track which yields neither to the right nor
left, nor sines a single inch beneath the
awful 'weight of the heavily burdened
' trains which daily whirl along it. The
grades are so accurate and yet so - deceptive
. that the watchlut traveler can hardly real
ise that he has reached the base of the
mountains before he is descending to the
• plains after having left behind him the
highest point attained on the route.
True, - the earlier opinions regarding this
grand railway enterprise and the supposed
:insurmountable obstacles to be reached in
•its being carried oat to successful end have
been proven false, and not half the difficul
ties have beetiencountered that were ex
peeted by even the most enthusiastic be.'
lieVers in the_feasibility • of the ,project.
But this fact detracts nothing 'from the
magnitude of the work. If the Almighty
laid out a pathway for a railroad through
the hitherto supposed impregnable moun
• taro divide of the Continent, and euffer
ed man to discover it only. when man's no
: oessitiea demanded its discovery, we should
-on bonded knees thauk Him forthe inesti
amble' blessing He vouchsafed us. The
hand divine certainly marked with uner
ring fidelity the route Over which will soon
pass the iron heeled messengers from the .
Atlantic to the Pacific, and perhaps for ages
past God has watched Nature beat down
and wear into canons impassable mountain
barriers in order that His irrevocable plans
, for the benefit of His creatures Might be
, ripened, and fulfilled. Bnt laying vague
- theories aside, the accomplishment of the
herculean task' of joining together the- re
; motest 'parts of the Continent by rail, will
not require the fabulous pots of gold or ages
- of labor which' were predicted even within
- the past decade of years by learned states-.
men and acute scholars. Thus far difficul
ties have faded away as flowers cut from
their parent, sterns, and the construction
has :been; pressed . forward , with fabulous
rapidity. Nor has a single yard of the
: : work beep ; slighted. . Every grade imper
feet, every tie laid with refreshing regu.
lathy, 'every rail • carefully placed, every
spike . driven home with fidelity, every
curve Correct,"every bridge 'and culvert
and siding made lu the safest, most skillful,
. substantial and scientific manner. There
has been no wasting of material, no' mis
management. As regularly as a„fattliful
old clock goes forward the work, each
-'stroke of the pendulum indicating a tie
placed, the 'minute band the rail: laid, the
hour Strike - the quarter mile* finished, the
day three miles and more ready for the
locomotive. So labor these twenty timers
and men. And so wilibe completed before
the int:timid; of 1870 the great work now
' half performed, and so also will the tray
' eler be enabled to make the circuit of the
`world Man brief space of tints as a voyage
across the sea formerly occupied. • .

trating districts teeming with untold min
eral and agricultural wealth, which, as
feeders, will pour forth millions of dollars
of profits annually to the coffers of the
Company. The lands owned and traversed
by the road will prove another great source
of revenue, most being in the finest agri
cultural district of the world, where the
grape will grow, fruit thrive, cereals pros
per, timber flourish and cattle grow fat on:
the fine grass prairies. There is, no telling
what treasures_ of, mineral-, wealth are,
locked up in the Rocky Mountains : Silver
and gold, copper and lead; i;ofi and coal,.
oil andpiagnetic ore, have been discovered
in large quantities, and yet the work of ex.'
ploration has hardly., been commenced.
Geologists and lithologists will have opened .
to them avast new field for 50dyy and de
velopment,•and ten years hence there will
be hundreds of mines and mills at work
in these regions. This is not saying too
much, although it is. with difficulty that
one restrains himself from growing enthu
siastic over the new region thrown open to
help on the wogress of America. Of coal
alone,- bituminous and, cannel, the former
almost equal to our boasted Pittsburgh
article, there has been enough already dis
covered at the base of the Black Hill range
to supply ten thousand cities of ten thou
sand inhabitants for Iten thousand years.
This calculation is made not from any sys
tematic array of figures, but from a well
founded idea that the supply will prove in
The Union Pacific Railway appears to the
masses like a dream. They do not know
that the talismanicword of •'oessame" has
been called by men of energy and enter
prise to the great rocky range of moun
tains, and that in response they # have
sprung open revealing their hidden treas
ures to enrich the World as the world was
never before enriched. They can hardly
realize the rapidity with which the vast
armies of muscular men, marshaled under
skilled masters, are laying from the west
to the'east and from the east to the west an
iron track between the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans. When the remaining seven or
eight hundred miles shall have been com
pleted, an event which will mark the au
tumn of 1869, the people will awake to a
full realization of the great.and mighty un
dertaking now going forward. Then will
our continent be joined to Western
Europe and Eastern Asia and the vast
travel and freight which will course in this
largest railway artery of the world will
be So immense as to astonish the
civilized world. Independent of tho
trade which it will draw from the Pacific
coast and the old world, there will probably
be enough local business afforded from the
new districts of eountry it opens, and
which are destined to become in the near
future densely populated, to ensure a vast
profit to the stockholders. Hence looking
on the new road either as a stupendous ex
hibition of man's pluck and enterprise, or
'as a financial scheme of the rosiest charac
ter, the mind is equally delighted.
It has been estimated that the cost of the
first eleven hundred miles of the eastern
end of the road will oly reach $6'2,445,012.
These figures approximate the truth closely
and the average cost of the save:. hundred
and-filly miles laid sustain the calculation.

These bonds are is - s - ned only on the coin
pletion of each section of twenty miles fif
road, and upon the certificate of commis
sioners appointed oy the United States
Government that the road is thoroughly
built and adequately supplied with all the
machinery, equipment and fixtures neces
sary to complete a first-class railroad. The
interest on these bonds is paid by the U. S.
Treasury. but is a charge against the Com
pany, which is much more than reim
bursed by services rendered the Govern
ment in transporting its troops, freight,
Mails, Sec. By its charter, the Company re
ceives one-half the amount ot, its charges
against the Government in money, and the
remaining half is placed' to its credit as a
sinking fend, which may amount to:a sum
sufficient to retire the Government bonds
lt should be remembered that both divis
ions of the great Pacific lino stand upon
precisely the same - footing in this and in
all other particulars respecting the Gov 7
ern ment grants.
3d. Ms GRANT OF LANDS.—The Govern
ment grants to the Company every alter
nate section of land for twenty miles on
each side of the road, making in all twenty
sections, equal to 12,800 acres for each mile
of the railroad. For a distance of 1,000
miles, this grant, which Is an absolute do
nation, amounts to fourteen million and
eighty thousand_(l4,oBo,ooo) acres. Ittivill
certainly be quite within bounds to esti
mate them at an average of $1,50 per acre,
and competent experts value them at a
much higher rate. On the 7th of March;
1368, the President of the United States
signed a Congressional bill which provides
that the alternate sections of land belong
ing to the Government on the line of the
Union Pacific Railroad shall not be sold at
less than $4.50 per acre.
4th. Tun Lows.- Gnarm—The Govern
ment grants the Company the right to issue
its own First Mortgage Bonds on its rail
; road and telegraph lines to an amount equal
to that of the bonds of the United States is
sued to the Company. By special act of
1 Congress [passed July 2, 1864] , these First
Mortgage Bonds are made a lien prior to
all claims of the Government, or to any
cilainia whatsoever. This gives the Union
Pacific Railroad Company the following re
sonnies, exclusive of its capital stock, for
the construction of 1,100 mites of road;
