IMPROVEMENTS IN ST. LAWRENCE RIVER STEAMERS.
      The Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Co. has now its complete service in operation. During the winter many improvements have been made in the vessels of the fleet. The steamer QUEBEC has had new feathering wheels put on and in place of large paddle boxes formerly used, small ones have been introduced. This gives twelve additional staterooms, besides improving the lighting and ventilation facilities of many more. New fittings for the staterooms, beds, etc., have also been put in all rooms. The dining room has also been refitted. The steamer MONTREAL has had her staterooms refitted and the dining room and other portions have been redecorated. The steamer HAMILTON has received new feathering wheels, which will make her time between Montreal and Hamilton much faster than before. The HAMILTON and the ALGERIAN have been put on the Hamilton route, leaving Montreal on Mondays and Thursdays at 7 p. m., in place of 4 p. m. as in previous years. The leaving time at Toronto and Hamilton has also been changed. The steamer SPARTAN has been refitted throughout and will run between Montreal and Toronto. The steamer has been lengthened about 18 feet making her 198 feet over all. She will run in connection with the Toronto. The CORSICAN will also run on this route. The steamer LONGLLEUIL has been completely rebuilt, improving her facilities to a great extent. The steamer CAROLINA, CANADA and SAGUENAY have been overhauled and will operate as usual on the Saguenay line. The running time between Montreal and Toronto has been shortened by three hours, owing to the improved steamers and the new Soulanges canal, which will be used.
