p.2 Large Fire at Windsor - mentions steamer Hastings and ferryboat Alliance. [Amherstburg Courier]

Ottawa Route - The new and splendid Steamer Phoenix, now in the course of completion, is expected to be ready to take her place on the route between Bytown and Grenville, between the 5th and 10th of May. The Phoenix will be commanded by Captain Patterson, well known to the travelling community. Like her fabled namesake, she has arisen as if by magic, from the ashes of her predecessor - a proof of the enterprising spirit of Messrs. Macpherson and Crane, to whom she belongs; and we trust she will float long and proudly, the Queen of the Ottawa. We understand that Capt. Shepherd's new steamer has already commenced running between Carillon and Lachine; in connection with which - when the Phoenix is ready for sailing - we will have a line of Boats between this place and Montreal, unequalled on our Canadian waters. Travelling between here and the Metropolis, will be cheap, expeditious, and pleasant. A person will be able to leave Bytown in the Morning and arrive in Montreal in time the same evening to take the Quebec Boats. It will be seen by our advertising columns that the Perth is stationed on the route to Grenville, and that the Beaver, Capt. Bell, will run during the season between here and Kingston. [Bytown Advocate]
