p.2 The Steamer Bytown - This handsome little canal steamboat, after undergoing a complete refit, engine as well as vessel, left, on Wednesday last, for Bytown, to take its share of the expected heavy fall business. This is the boat which the Ottawa & Rideau Company intended for the passenger trade between Kingston and Bytown, but which several unforseen circumstances prevented being devoted to that sole purpose. In the ensuing spring she will run as a packet boat, but during the remainder of the present year, will take her turn with the other Rideau steamboats. She is commanded, as formerly, by Capt. Hunter, than whom a more obliging and a more attentive officer cannot be found.
