Montreal, Oct. 23rd - New Steam Boat - On Tuesday last the new steam boat Ottawa, built at the head of the Long Sault in the Ottawa, having received her engine at Lachine made a trip of about seven miles from thence to the upper outlet of the Chateauguay river. She performed it to admiration, having gone that distance in 50 minutes, and returned in 37 1/2. Her model is said to be very handsome, and her engine ( the first made in Canada) to reflect great credit upon its fabricator Mr. Lough. It is the opinion of those who were aboard of her during the excursion, that she surpasses in speed any other steam boat navigating the waters of these provinces. Mr. Bruce has the merit of her construction. [Courant]
