Chicago is a livcly aud go-ahead city. After atteuding to out business in that city we ehartered a berth iu ono of those ncw Bloeping oars aforesaid, aud fecling vory tircd, wo went to sleep, and woke up rested in body and mid at 7.30 o'cloek, A. M., in Detroit, roady for business. A person's conseiencc is liever troubled by hjhvj in one of thosc elegant sleeping cars, so well veütilatcd and ncatly furnished. Thia is positively the best aud safest conducted road in tho West and cannot be beat in the world. The road is doing a groat business, as the passenger trains were wel iilied and the freight traína werc heavilj laden with all sorts of meroliandise. Thc Conductora and all men in the ernploy of this road are gentlemanly and aeooraodating, andstrangetg from all partsof the world who travel it speak highly of it and its superintendent, Mr. R. N. Ricé. They never fail to niake tlieir eomieutions , are alffays on timer, and accidenta unkpown. Wo would advise all who travel through this State to take the Michigan Central Rail Road, on account of its being the shortest and quiokost route, its management, smoolhnesá aud comfort genorally. Vóry respoctfully, yours,
