...The steamboat accommodation on the Ottawa, and also on the Rideau Canal this season, is most excellent. Between Bytown and Grenville, touching at L'Orignal (the landing) the beautiful Phoenix, Capt. Patterson plies; and between Lachine and Port Fortune, the new and elegant boat, the Lady Simpson, Capt. Sheppard, is stationed; both very fast vessels, and doing all their business in daylight. On the Rideau Canal, those favorite vessels, the Beaver, Capt. Fenwick, and the Prince Albert, Capt. Friel, make four trips a week each way, and their accommodations for passengers are of the very first class. At no period since the Caledonia Springs were discovered were the means of reaching there comfortably, so ample, so cheap or so convenient.
