p.2 Summer Travel - The summer travel may now be said to have fairly set in, the downward lake steamers being "full" every morning. Yesterday the Banshee brought down about 200, chiefly Canadians, but with a large sprinkling of Americans who have entered Canada by way of Niagara Falls; and this morning the Grecian was so crowded that passengers going aboard here could not get state rooms. The American Line, too, brings down its full quota of excursionists, chiefly for the Saguenay and the watering places on the lower St. Lawrence. Yesterday the Cataract had 160 passengers. As yet, somewhat strangely, very few of these travellers find their way to the Ottawa; all in good time, however, for when the city of Ottawa becomes the Seat of Government, and when all the "lions" on the St. Lawrence have grown tame by familiarity, the Upper Ottawa, with its magnificent scenery, must come in for its full share of attention from tourists.
