An . Interesting i Literary Fact. The

We are to-day enabled to state, that on
Tuesday last the long debated treaty relative
to reciprocal trade between the United States
and these Provinces was actually signed on
behalf of H. M. Government and of the U.
States. In those colonies which accent its
provisions, the treaty will go into immedi
ate operation ; while in those provinces
which reject, it will remain a dead letter.
In Canada it will probably go into effect by
proclamation as soon as ratified by the Sen
ate, the Governor General having" power to
accept it under the authority of a law al
ready passed. New Brunswicker.

the Wheeling Argus that workmen are busi

The Indiana banks are moving with a view
to establish an agency in Cincinnati ; for the

is to furnish eastern exchange at I premium

The probability is that nearly all the country
banks will unite in this arrangement,, which
is the only one that can prevent their notes
from being returned for redemption about as
fast as issued. ,' ,

that " while frigates and steamers, and line

continuous streams, waking up theechoesof
the Dardanelles with endless salutes,. not a
being ever comes down to cast a glance at
the scene. The old crones sit knitting in
their dingy hovels ; the men, if they are
Greeks, slouch about the corners in their bag
gy breeches, and the pretty and dirty little
children continue their games without show
ing the smallest signs of . curiosity, though a
whole fleet is blazing away its thunder in an
imperial welcome .within a few yards of
them.' And as for the. Turks, they sit obsti
nately on their shelves, and smoke their ap
athetic pipes most pertinaciously they are
so determined in " resisting the impulses of
their curiosity." - ' : : ' !, '
