      THE BLUE BONNET. --- This new steamer, intended to run between Montreal and Cornwall, touching at intermediate ports, is about to commence her trips. She is a fine model of naval architecture, and will be a formidable rival for the FASHION, which has hitherto had a monopoly on this line. The BLUE BONNET was built at Sorel by McCarthy, measures 162 feet over all in length, with 25 foot beam, and draws 3 feet 6 inches of water light. her engines are 60 horse power 24 inch cylinder, and 10 foot stroke, and are on a novel construction, making 22 revolutions a minute. She made the run from Sorel in four hours. her interior fittings are very tasty, and her general arrangements second to nothing on the river. She has accommodation for 104 cabin passengers. The fittings are by Shearer, and the engine by Milne & Milne. She is commanded by Captain Stickler and consigned to Campbell & Williamson.- ----- Montreal Com. Advertiser
