This groat enterprise In approaching ;completion'
With a rapidity that astonishes the world. Over
fificen.(l6oo) hundred mites have been built by two
(2) powerful companies; the Union Peale Railroad,
beginning'at Omaha, building west, and the 'Gon
na Pacific Railroad beginning at Sacramento, and
building east, until the two road. Shall meet. Lees
than two hundred and fifty miles remain 'to be
built. "The greater partof the interval le now grad
.ed,-and iris reasonably expected that the through
cOnneetion between San Francisco and Nesi York
will bo completed hy July 1.
AS the 'amount of Government aid given to each
le deptindont upon the length of road each shell

when completed, will be one and the only grand

One Hundred and Ten Million Dollars ($llO,OOO,
000) In money have already been expended by . the
two powerful ampoules engaged In this great en
terprise, and.they will speedily -complete - the-por•-
tion yet to bn built. When the Dnited Stotes Gov
ernment found It necessary to' more the . construe.
Don of the Pacific Railroad 'to develop and protect
Its own interest, It gave the companies authorized
to build it snob ample old as nhould render Its
speedy, completion beyond a doubt. The Oovcrn•
ment aid may be briefly summed up an follows:
First. The right of way and all necessary timbrt
and stone from public domain.
Second._ It, makes edenation of 12,800 acres of
land to the mire, which. when tile road is completed,
will amount to twenty-three million (23,000,060)
acres, and all of it within 'twenty (20) miles of
Third. It loans the camp nies fiftv million dol

The Government has already loaned the Union
Pacific Railroad torontl-four , , and. fifty

Central Pacific-Railroad seventeen naillion'slx hut

companies hare sold to permaniMt investors about

Mortgage Bonds. The companion hobo already

from State of California. and aacramento city and

In considering this question it mo?• be remem
bered that all the remaining "Iron' . 3iiish the
road la contracted (or, and the "largest portion paid

Pacific Railroad and the Central Pacifir Railroad,
and that the grading is almoot fl niehed. -

Bonds for about $41,000,000 additional.
Third. The companies now hold almost all the
lital they have up lo thin time received from the .
Government; upon the completion of the road they
will have received in all 23,000,000 acres, which at
$1,50 per acre would be worth $33,500,000.

the roads and additional capital, If_necessary, could

]From the Overland Monthly.]
We were five who came around Cape
Horn together ; and from au intimate
acquaintance on shipboard We deter
mined to .adhere to each other's for
tunes in California: Max was the old
est of the party, and by reason of his
superior ago, as well as from his gravity
of manners arid his superior--knowledge
of business and law, was by common
coneent regarded umpire in all matters
of disagreement; which were not many,
for a sense of common danger and de
pendence made us very harmonious.
Sandy was the youngest of us all. He
was of a - fiery temper, which he bad
never disciplined to self control ; but
he was generous to a fault, and, took up
.a friend's cause as resolutely as his
Own. Steve w.iis a sailor, and second
officer of our sllipa rood enough fel
low •winn he was roller, and a hard
w.n-ker. Our party was completed by
-Welth miner, or Cornish man, on
whose superior knowledge of milling
affairs, we placed great dependence.
We had gone intO camp on the bank
of the yuba, just above where it emp
ties into the Feather River. A large
oak served
. ns as a tent ; and our fire
was built against -its trunk, in accord.
ante with the customs of the times—
becanS e it ..wai::ettsier _to_ build
there, and because the tree served as a
good back-log Our oxen were turned
loose to browse among the herbage
along the riv'er banks—for in the - fall
the plains were destitute of every spe
cies of-food for animals, so elose.hadit
been fed by our predecessors. W e had
stretched ourselves round the fire, with
, lankets spread upon the ground
benyb us, watching the Cornish man
bake - the bread, when an .unexpected
addition Was suddenly made to 'our
company in the form of a group 9f
naked Indians, armed with bows and
arrows. One of them, whom we took
to be the Chief, bore upon his shoulders
an old grub-hoe, which we were sure
he bad robbed froth some unfortunate
miner who bad been so unlucky as to
fall into his power ; in the other hand
he carried a wisp of straw, twisted up
into something like a torch. Their
approach had been so silent that they
Stood beside us ere one of us bad dis
covered them ; and we all sprung to
our feet in an instant. -Thhp was our
first introduction to the aborigines, and
we were all seized with terror. Our
arms were in the wagon, a rodltway
resistance was useless.
" Good afternoon," said Max, who
felt the responsibility df• the occasion,-
though his blood was no more precious
to hini , than ours to us. .
He with the grub-hoe uttered a sig
nificant grunt, and gave a vacant smile,
while he drew from a hair-skin wallet
a comb of "yellow-jackets," or hornets,
filled with the chrysalis forms . of the
,insects ; and, after carefully
pulling forth several with his thumb
and finger, and thrusting them into his
mouth:Teffered the'rest to Max. :This
is a pledge of friendship, thought Max;
and if I reject it, our lives may pay the
-forfeit. Seriously; Max-took-the-comb
of'young kernels, and repehted the cer,
emony.of the Indian chief, while the
milky juice of the dying. innocents
oozed • through his lips. Solemnly , the
soal''of friendship passed around— till

But our new friend was in -our eyes
a hero ; and-he was not slow to realiie
the fact that wo were under great ob
ligations to him. and that he had saved
us from indiscriminate-massacre.
• " I see you are strangers in these
parts," he said, ".or ron wouldn't 'low

with the remains of the repast in-his
hands. With a great oath, he said :
" What aro you doing with that piseu
stuff? You've been a eaten of. it, by
George," and he broke into an uproar
ions - Sandy was not- the man
to take an insult tamely., It required
all the force of the authority of Max to .
prevent a serious Jesuit to this short
interview with. our new acquaintance.
,The affair was ' settled, however, by
mutual concessions Fie was too use

Saint Jo was delighted with his new
friends' ; he and - Sandy were - on - the
most cordial terms at breakfast, and
the former proposed that the latter
should ride his mule, while he took his
place in the wagon.
After ascending the: left bank of the
Yuba for a snort distance, it was found
necessary to cross the river at a fordT
for our destination was up, the South
Fork of the Feather River. Saint ,To
undertook to manage the oxen in, cros
sing, and when they came to the edge
of the water, which, though wide, was
not deep, in order to cross dry-shod
himself, he jumped astride one of the
leading oxen. This was all very. well,
but Saint Jo never let go a good
thing, and once astride a victim he
never willingly dismounted. The op
posite bank of the river was abrupt and
slippery, and the leaders, after several
ineffectual attempts to reach the top,
turned to re-cross, in spite of the oaths
and gond of Saint . ,To, and were quickly
thrown into confusion. There were
three yoke of them, and they were soon
floundering •in the water, and in the
midst of them Saint Jo was throwninto
the river. Dismounted of. their rider,
the leading oxen recovered from Their
disorder, and successfully gained the
top of the bank. Saint Jo - came . up
soon after, dripping with water and
foaming ivith rage; with his cudgel he
belabored them fearfully, and long Id

interfered during this
,fierce burst of
passion, but when it ha'd spent itself,
the quiet Clernish man said : ," The

"Another word from'you and I'll shoot

The Cornishman did not say another
word, and saved the top of his head.
Riding with Max, I remarked that
in our protector we had an ligly cus
tomer, and one . moro to be ardaded, in
my opinion, than the' red s savages.
" We will get rid of him 'when we
get to the mines," said Max; 'five Won't
break with him on the road."

The field was , paced off, the ground
cleared, and all preparations rriade. for

At the appointed time, Sandy,-Who

Saved By a Mute Alphabet
my life once, entirely through having
learned the mute' alphabet. .
There were two little boys who
used to-come and-staY,with Frank and
me,when we were first married, and
they coula neither hear nor speak; •
They were deaf and ...dumb ; they
could.not talk_except.with their lingers
—so—oLly'ever so much quicker.
Frank and I learned this foreign al
phabet on purpose that we might un
derstand what they said. They were
quick and clever, they could read and
write, aye and 'draw and sew and do
many things which most hots would
make but a bad hand at.
They could play at draughts, and
nt baclsgatninon and chess, and at-fox
and.geese, as well as any hobs. They
could almost see what we said though
could not bear, with.such quick, engee
eyes did they watch every- movement
of our lips. We soon, however, got to
talk as easily ns with our tongues and
sometimes when the lads were not with
us, Frank, and I often talked in that
manner, when we were alone, for
iract ice.
It happened that on one occasion he
had to go to London on important lnis
ness ; be was to have gone by the af
him so that he was notable to reave
before the night expresB.—l was
in very good health, and retired to my
bed-room about two hours, before his
'departure.; he promitsed i hoWever, to
come up and bid-me - good-bye before-,
lie _started,. which would be- between
twelve and one o'clock in the morning.
The matter which Called him away
was connected with the bank here and
Illy husband, it seems—though I did
not lam* it at the time, so great—a Fe
cret had be endeavored to keep ir—had
many thousand pounds belonging to
the concern in his temporary possess
ion, 'locked up in the iron safe in our
bed-room, where the plate was kept.
Fle was bank manager, and responsi
ble for the whole of it. It was cold
weather, and there was a fire in the
grate, so bright and comfortable that I
was in no hurry to leave it and get in
to bed, but sat up and looked into the
fiery coals, thinking about all sorts
of things ; on the long journey that
Frank bad to take that night, and hoW
dreary the clays would be till be
turned, and in particular how lonely I
should feel in that great room, all by
myself when he shenid be away, for I
was a dreadful coward. It: was a lit-
tla after eleveil o'clock when I retired;
but 1 did not feel the least inclined to
sleep even then I knew Frank would
be cominp in presently to wish me
good bye, and besides there scorned- to
be all sorts of noises about the room
which my fo.di,h ears used to hear
when I was alone ht
