River & Lake - The Montreal Star says: The Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company has commenced running its boats both up and down the river, with good prospects of success for the season. The Bohemian will start from Lachine for Cornwall on the 4th. The outlook for freight and passengers is very good. Already large excursions from various places in the United States are projected during the summer, and the American papers say that more excursionists will visit Canada from that side of the line this season than any previous one. The Company will have no opposition this year, which is a feather in its cap, and gives a good prospect for a dividend to the shareholders. The business to Quebec, we are informed, fully equals that of last year. The Western Express Line of propellers, which takes in its route the principal cities in the United States, is ready to commence running the moment the canal is open.
