Grand Trunk Wabash.—Speaking of this contract, Bradstreets says: The arrangement is an exceedingly important one for both companies concerned. The G.T. obtains an increase of income, & the Wabash a terminal practically in Buffalo, bringing it into direct connection with a number of lines centering at that city. It is also to be considered that while the alliance between the Wabash & the G.T. has been more or less close ever since Mr. Hays left the former road to assume the management of the latter, the present deal indicates that these relations are to be closer, & that the Canadian road will thus obtain facilities for reaching many important sections & cities in the Western & Southwestern States.
