On Saturday, May 8th, at 10 o'clock
A. 31., the last rail was laid and the last
epike was driven, and the Pscific Hail
road, the "most magnificent work of the
ago ", was cotapleted. The work of con
btructing the Pacific Railroad has pro
grossed with a rapidity hitherto uuchron
icled in the history of such enterprises.
The point of junction is ten hundred and
eighty-six miles west of the Missouri riv
er, nd six hundred and ninety miles
cast of Sacramento. :The last tie used
was made of California Laurel, highly
polished, . presented to the C- P. R. R.
Co. by West Evens, contractor lor furn
ishing ties. The silver plate ' upon it,
seven inches long by six wide, bears the
following inscription : "The lust tie laid
on the completion of the Pacific Railroad,
May, 1S60. Directors L. Stanford, C.
P. Iluntiugton, E. 13. Crocker, Mark
Hopkins, E. II. Miller, A. P. Stanford
and Chas. Marsh. ; Officers Lcland
Stanford, President; C, P. Huntington,
Vice President ; Charles Crocker, Super
intendent; Mark Hopkins, Treasurer; E.
II. Miller, Secretary," The last spike
driven was a .golden one, suitably, in
scribed, and presented to the Company
by D. Ilewes, of San Francisco. The
spike was a fac simile in size and shape
of the ordinary, six inch spike, to the
point of which, was attached in the cast
ing a nugget of about the same length of
the spike itself, which was broken off
previous to driving the spike, probably
to be used in the manufacture of memen
toes of the occasion by the officers of the
corporation., The value of the SDike and
nugget was 414. It is thus described :
On the head -is the inscription : "The
last spike." On one side, "The Pacific
Railroad; ground broken January 8th,
18C3 ; completed May , 1800." On
another side, this sentiment, "May God
continuo the unity of our country as this
railroad unites the two great oceans of
the world." Also : Presented by David
Ilewes, San Francisco." The other sides
bear the names of the Directors and
officers of the Company. The Union
Pacific Express Company furnished the
hammer, which was of silver and weigh
ed five and a. half pounds.

Railroad -Celebrations. In San

cities, on Monday last, great rejoicings
were had over the laying of the last rail

flags flying, and stirring and eloquent
speeches made in honor of the grand
achievement. The telegraph wires were

Mr. Beadle, the reformer, said, in a

the islaud of Cuba. The United States
wauted more laud; their wishes ought
to be satisfied. Spain would, of course,
object, and declare war, but such a trifling
consideration ought not to stop them
for a single moment. The Cubans, their
independence oncu secured, might treat
the Yankee in the same way as the Mex
icans did the French; but, added Mr.
Beadle, the Constitution of the United
States, with the Fifteenth Amendment,
are arguments which the inhabitants of

The "Gay" Plow. Yesterday we
examined this new patent gang plow,
invented by Mr; Charles F. Gay, of
Albany, Oregon, and of which a trial was
made in East Portland yesterday evening.
This plow possesses a decided superior
ity over most all of the different patents,
which we have j observed, in that its
adjustments aud jslides are destitute of
anything like complication. The wheels
are four feet in diameter, and placed at
such a distance 'apart, that they always
run on solid land, except when near
finishiug. The plows can be thrown in
or out ad libitum, by the simple moving
of a lever. The entire machine is adjust
able in every manner, only three levers
being used in making any alterations.
The plows which cut one foot each, can,
by the manipulation of a slide indented
with notches, be regulated to any desired
depth, from one inch to eleven inches.
The draught is brought to bear directly
upon the plow, and not upon the trunks
as is the case in most other gang plows.
Any number of plows can be attached
from one to four,-by regulating the team
accordingly. The entire running gear
can all be manufactured and sold at the
small price of 75 00, which will place it
within the reach of every farmer. Ar
rangements will doubtless soon be made
by which these plows can be manufactur
ed in this city Portland Commercial.
