p.1 Navigation - The Canadian Navigation Company's American Express boats Abyssinian and Athenian will commence their summer route in about eight days. The route will be as in previous years, crossing from Toronto to Charlotte, thence down the American shore to Ogdensburg and over to Prescott, transhipping passengers, baggage and freight at Prescott on board the Company's other steamers. By this means the American public are enabled to make the tour of the St. Lawrence with very little inconvenience. These elegant boats have been refitted and repainted, and will doubtless be one of the great attractions of this popular route.
