SS " VANCOUVER."
Sir Oliver Mowat, KCMG, Premier of Ontario, when presiding at a Concert held onboard the RMS " Vancouver " during the voyage from Montreal to Liverpool, in aid of the Seamen's Orphanage, paid a glowing tribute to this Steamer. "
We have always heard," said Sir Oliver, "that the ' Vancouver' is the best boat on the route, and from the uniform kindness and attention we have received from the genial and courteous Captain to the most humble servant of the ship, that impression has been fully confirmed."
Mr. H. Corley, M.P., and Attorney-General Longley, M.P., of Nova Scotia, both added their testimony as to the excellency of the Steamer and how the passengers were treated on the "Vancouver."
