So, I'd like that my last paragraph located in both columns. I hope you can help me

You can use the flushend package:

\documentclass[twocolumn]{article}
\usepackage{flushend}

\usepackage[numbers]{kantlipsum} % just for the example

\begin{document}

\kant[1-8]

\end{document}

Twocolumn

In a twocolumn-paper, you can use a command to forcebreak a column, sort of like \clearpage, but for columns, obviously. Use \vfill\eject right before your last column, and it will break over.

Multicol

If you are using multicol-package, it will by default try to balance the columns, so that they will appear equally long. You can also split it manually here, using the command \culumnbreak

Comparison of output

twocolumn-code

\documentclass[twocolumn]{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\lipsum[1-8]
\vfill\eject%
\lipsum[9]
\end{document}

Multicol-code

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\begin{multicols}{2}
  \lipsum[1-6]
  %  \columnbreak
  \lipsum[7]
\end{multicols}
\end{document}
