-The Rideau Canal - Mr. M.K. Dickenson has lately made a successful effort to provide comfortable accommodation for travellers upon the Rideau Canal. This route has been rather neglected for some time past by the steamboat proprietary. Mr. Dickenson had fitted up the steamers Ottawa and Victoria, in very neat style, with upper deck saloons and sleeping apartments. Each Steamer has been provided with very competent Stewards and Waiters. Capt. Jones, of the Victoria, and Capt. Ryan, of the Ottawa, are well known on the Rideau as careful and skilful navigators. Those who have made a trip upwards in the Ottawa and downwards in the Victoria pronounce the table, the attendance and the arrangements, excellent. The line deserves encouragement. [Citizen]
