Our friend Charley Babcock of the M. K. & T. Road looked in on us last Tuesday. He was just from Sherman, his headquarters, and returned hence on Wednesday. He tells us the Road is progressing as well as usual and will be at Red River in a short time. The Choctaw Vindicator, published at Atoka, the present terminus of the M. K. & T. road, says that place will be the terminus for six weeks yet, at or about which time we may expect the road to reach Red River. Atoka is 65 miles North of Sherman by the stage road.
