p.2 Bytown Steamboats - The new Steamer Phoenix will be ready for sailing in a few weeks. Thirty or forty men are employed daily by Messrs. McPherson & Crane, in completing this beautiful vessel. When full rigged, the Phoenix will most assuredly rank as one of the prettiest steamers in the Canadian waters. Captain Patterson, who last year had charge of the Passenger Boat on the route between Bytown and Grenville, and who gave much satisfaction to the travelling public in that capacity, will command the Phoenix.

The Prince Albert is receiving an extra over-hauling this spring. With the new coat, etc. bestowed upon the Prince this year, this vessel will have a most coquettish appearance. This Boat has never been the most regular Passenger vessel on the route between Bytown and Kingston, and being owned by a few enterprising individuals for the most part resident in Bytown and vicinity, has strong claims upon the patronage of this quarter. Capt. Lawless will resume his place on board of the Prince Albert. [Bytown Packet]
