From Up the Road
   We learn from Capt. Brown, of the Pioneer express company, who arrived last night from Columbus, that through the untiring labor and energy of Major Fleming and Mr. Fresenius on the Mobile & Ohio railroad, the two miles will be completed to Tibbee station today, and that it is probably thqt a train will go up as far as Columbus this or tomorrow evening. The regular mail train, it is reported, will start positively for Columbus junction on Monday evening. He says the damage to the road by the Yankees was very great and the work of repairing it, owing to the scarcity of materials and labor, has been very great.
