p.2 The Steamboat Opposition At An End - We regret extremely to learn that the Steamboat opposition on the Canadian waters is at an end. It is understood that the proprietors of the rival lines have come to an arrangement by which one party is to be left undisputed possession of the Lake and the others of the River. The fares will immediately go up, but we trust not to the former exhorbitant rates. The consequence at the present moment would be an almost entire cessation of all travel for the sake of health and amusement, and the steamboat owners would have to submit for the remainder of the summer on the support of the business public alone.
