Steam Boat Competition - Competition in all branches of business is useful, and when conducted on fair and honorable principles, highly beneficial to the community - but on the other hand when it degenerates into oppression and low intrigue - the powerful taking an undue advantage of the weak, it becomes the bounden duty of the public to step forward and afford protection to the injured party.
I am led, Mr. Editor, to these remarks by some proceedings of our Bay Steam Boats during the present week, but as the particulars are pretty generally known, I shall abstain at present from further remarks, well knowing that there is sufficient of the John Bull spirit of fair-play in the community to counteract effectually, any ungenerous attempts of the character above alluded to.
