A Good Appointment

We fully endorse the following from the Ottawa Monarchist:

It affords us great pleasure to announce that our friend, Capt. Sclater, late master of the steamer Phoenix, has been appointed to the command of the steamer Arabian, one of the Royal Mail Line, intended to ply between Prescott and Hamilton during the coming season. Capt. S., while on the route here, was a general favorite with the travelling community, and during his short sojourn in this locality was deservedly respected. Being a first class sailor, therefore, in his new office he will be quite at home, and no doubt will become one of the most competent and popular commanders on Lake Ontario. We congratulate the travelling community upon the prospect of having such a thorough good fellow to travel with. We wish both vessel and commander every possible success.
