Across the Continent in Eighty-four
Jarrelt and Palmer' Fast Train.
For the past week the telegraph has
had much to say regarding the grand
est exploit of the age, the crossing of
the continent, in eighty:f our. hours,
from New York to. San Francisco,
with a railroad train.
Details of the -trip are incomplete
but enough is at hand to show a re
sult which commands universal ad
miration. We sift from the latest
dispatches the following facts :
The maximum rate per mile- on
each of the three divisions df the
Union Pacific was one minute, and
on the division between Big Springs
and Julesburg, the run was made
at the rate of seventy-two miles an
Arrived at Ogden at 10:57, eight
hours and twenty-seven minutes
ahead of ti me. Average speed forty
four miles per hour.
Arrived atlveltonat 11:-G; stopped
four minutes for water. The speed
between Promontory and Kelton,
forty-six and a half miles an hour ;
average rate of speed from Troma to
Ogden, forty-four and a half miles
per hour ; entire time from Ogden to
Troma, including stops, 3:36; distance
156 7-10 miles; engine, Xo. 149,
drawing the train, has cylinder six
teen by twenty-four inches; driver
five feet; she is a model engine,
weighing thirty-three tons.
The most remarkable run occurred
on the-Central Pacific, up hill grade,
from Ogden to. Promontory, in Utah,
fifty-four miles, made in one hour
and nine minutes.
Reached Winnemucca at S:10 p. m.
and remained eight to ten minutes.
The emigrant train, with several
hundred emigrants, and also a large
crowd from town, were at the depot,
and greetedthe train with cheers upon
its arrival The whole distance of
the Humboldt division 236 miles
was accomplished in six hours and
The breakage of the lubricator at
Carlin detained the train thirteen min
utes, and a hot box caused a further
detention at Battle Mountain, caus
ing a delay altogether of twenty-five
minutes on the Humboldt division.
Notwithstanding the heavy grades
and curves between Toano and Winne
mucca, a speed of forty-eight and three
tenths miles per hour was maintained.
The tram was five hours ahead of time
and anticipations of arriving in San
Francisco between 8 or 9 a. m. Simday
were confidently expressed by the
The train passed Reno at 2:25 a.
m., notwithstanding the early hour
the track for a mile and a half was
lined with people, firing, pistols, bombs
and shouting. Roman candles were
fired from the rear end of the train.
Arrived at Evanston at 9:15 a. m.,
leaving at 9:20 a. m., eight hours
and fifteen minutes ahead of time,
running down Echo canyon at the
rate of sixty miles and hour.
The Postmaster at San Francisco
received a dispatch from Evanston as
follows : " Have 100,000 letters for
your citizens. "Will you deliver them
Sunday on arrival of the transconti
nental, express ? Signed Jarrett &
Palmer." T.he Postmaster was to
have the delivery made upon the ar
rival of the train.
A trashy San Francisco paper sent
a reporter to Ogden in the hope of get
ting him on the train, but did not suc
ceed. They then sent another to
Truckee hi the hope of being; able to
get on board there and ride ta the bay;
but he returned in a fearful state? of
ttigs&tisfactiogu as.-he learned on reads
ing Summit,, through telegraphic ad
vices, that his mission would prove a
tdtal failure, and that he would not be
allowed to accompany the party at all.

A man who gives his name as
John Allen, and says that his last
recollection of himself was that he
worked for Seth Luelliug, at Mil
waukie, was brought to the hospital
at noon to-day from a thicket of brush
on Smith's Point by Judge Davidson
He was seen by a hunting party last
Sunday, but no particular notice was
taken of him, as nothing about his
appearance was observed to cause a
suspicion that he was not all right,
except that perhaps he had been in
toxicated and was ,; sleeping off" the
effects of a spree. This morning,
however the same parties again ob
served him and pronounced him
dead. Judge Davidson was immedi
ately notified, and summoning a jury
proceeded to the locality for the pur
pose of holding an inquest. On
reaching the place, which is des
cribed as an almost impenetrable
jungle, it was discovered that life was
not extinct, although the man was in
a famishing condition, and barely
alive. Restoratives were applied,
and by proper handling the unfortu
nate man was placed in a boat, was
brought to the city,, and put to bed at
tlie hospital. He revived sufficient
to tell that he went to the place
where he was found on Thursday
last, that his name is John Allen, and
that he worked for Luelling. His
language implies that he is insane
and it seems impossible for him
to account for the manner in
which he got to the place where he
was found. He tells of parties being
with him who are unknown, parties
who gave him a blanket, and told
him to stay there, and then went
away and never, came back, promis
ing, him food, etc., and that they
woold get him into the hospital. It
is very evident that the man has
not eaten anything for several
days. Xo blankets, nor other
covering was found with him, and it
is a mystery how he could penetrate
the jungle and live there so long
Dr. "Wandory, is attending the case,
' and it is thought the man will recover.
N. Q. Meeker, of Greeley, Col.,
says that. Gen. Hazen was wrong to
stigmatise " the barren lands" as being
all that between, the 100th meridian
and the Sierra Nevadas. Military men
don't knoVt anything; about the agricul
turalyalne of the land, says Mr. Meek
er; ihey have their grain and provisions
hauled from the states to the posts at a
cost of twenty cents" a pound, when
they could raise all they need for not
over two cents a pound right under
their own guns. Irrigation solves the
necessities of the region, and he points
to Colorado to prove it, estimating
that when the irrigation; laws shall
be " definitely and. wisely"1 settled,
Colorado can support 2,000,000 people,
New Mexico Arizona and Utah each
the same, and MontanaOOOjOOO.
