Messrs. McPherson & Crane announce that they will put on the route between Quebec and Hamilton, an express and a freight line, during the coming season. The express line will consist of two vessels, the Champion, a new boat, not yet finished, and the Comet, which has been greatly improved in speed and passenger accommodation during the winter. The freight line will be composed of three vessels, the Commerce, Western Miller, and Scotland. This is the first attempt to unite Quebec with the Ontario ports by a regular line of steamers, and we trust that it will be successful. We have every reason to believe that it will be so. The western merchants will find it cheaper and more expeditious to transfer their goods from the ship to the steamer at Quebec, instead of Montreal, and this they will be enabled to do with certainty, when a regular line is fairly established. Emigrants too will avoid all the trouble of transhipment at Montreal, Kingston and Toronto, to which they have been hitherto subjected.
