Full Text

Yesterday afternoon a steamer built opposite this place, on the Lower Canada, side of the river, by the firm of Messrs. McPherson & Crane, was safely launched into the Ottawa River, between the hours of three and four P. M. She is named the SPEED, and is intended to ply between Bytown and Grenville on the route to Montreal. When the line is completed, it is expected that passengers will be able to get through from this place to Montreal by daylight. We understand that she is to be taken down to Grenville to get her machinery on board. -- Bytown Gazette.
