THREATENED OPPOSITION ON THE LAKE.

With much regret we observe that demonstrations are daily being made of having two Lines of Steamers on Lake Ontario; one consisting of the Princess Royal and Sovereign, Captains Twohy, and known as Mr. Bethune's Mail Line; and another comprising the Magnet, City of Toronto, and New Era, owned by Messrs. Hamilton, Dick, and Sutherland. Were business good, we should hail this opposition with cheers; but as it is we deprecate it strongly. While there is not sufficient business for one Line, what is the use of putting on a second? In the disputes of silly men, a higher power sometimes intervenes; and the coming Cholera may probably bring the beligerent steamboat proprietors to their senses. At any rate, the threatened dire contingency should be looked forward to and calculated upon.
