p.3 Opposition - There are four steamers now plying between this city and Toronto and Hamilton. The mail is carried by the Princess Royal and Sovereign, performing daily trips, while the Magnet and City of Toronto are placed in opposition. The Sovereign and Magnet came into port yesterday morning, and today the old friends, the Princess and City entered as antagonists. Cheap travelling will therefore of necessity be the order of the day until present differences are arranged.
