We have seen a letter in the Montreal Transcript, signed "An Enquirer," of the 22nd ult., made valuable, by being copied into other papers of greater usefulness. "Enquirer" could not have been very well informed about the Tug Line Business, when he evidently did not know that the Company had recently put on a new and powerful Steam Tug in the place of the Traveller, which "Enquirer" alleges is away towing rafts. As "to the Superintendent's taking things easy," it should certainly be said, that the "ease" of the Superintendent speaks much in favor of the efficiency of the Tug Line, inasmuch, if numerous complaints were made, he could not take things "easy," the plain fact being, that no complaints have been made since the recent letting of the Contract.
