1851 Montreal Canada Directory, Public Offices And Institutions

The City of Montreal is situated on the River St. Lawrence, in the Island and County of the same name, and is the largest and most populous City in British America. It is an electoral district, returning two members to the Provincial Parliament, and the Courts of Law for the district are held here. Montreal is distant from Quebec, ISO miles usual steamboat fare, 10s. to 12s. 6d. usual stage fare, 40s. to 50s. distant from Kingston, 200 miles, usual steamboat fare, 20s. usual stage fare, 35s. distant from Toronto, 390 miles usual steamboat fare, 40s. to 45s. and to Hamilton the same-distant from Bytown, 120 miles usual steamboat and stage fare, 50s. distant from New York. 420 miles usual steamboat and railroad fare, 30s. to 40s.
