p.2 Mr. Anthony O'Connors - It will give much pleasure to the travelling part of the community, to hear that their old friend Mr. Anthony O'Connors has received the reward of his energy and devotion to the service of his employers, by being promoted to the responsible situation of Commander of the steamer Canada. This is one of those selections which does justice to the employers, the employed and the public. Mr. now Captain O'Connors has merited this promotion by long, faithful, and energetic services, which we are happy to see that the company have appreciated; and he has the hearty good wishes and congratulations of all that part of the community here, whose business leads them to Montreal. He must look well to his accommodations, for we prognosticate he will have a crowded boat all the summer.
