QUICK. – We received last evening from a gentleman from Chicago, the papers of that city of the 28th, Cincinnati of the 29th, and Memphis of the 30th ult. He left Chicago at 10 P. M. on the 28th ult, by the Illinois Central Railroad, to Cairo, and arrived here at 7 P. M. yesterday, by the 1st inst., making the trip in three days and twenty-one hours, and [losing?] twenty-four hours.
The route is the new one we have recently given some detailed account of; from Cairo by steamboat, some twenty miles, to Columbus, Ky., on the Mississippi; thence by the Mobile and Ohio Railroad to Jackson, Tenn.; thence by the Tennessee Central Railroad to Grand Junction; thence by the Mississippi Central Railroad to [Durand?]; thence by stage, sixty-two miles, to Canton; and thence by the Jackson Railroad to this city.
