Excerpt from For Tourists and Sportsmen: The Russell, Ottawa, Hotel Victoria, Aylmer, Que;, F. X. St. Jacques, Proprietor

Ottawa is essentially a modern city. Its foundations were laid little more than 75. Years ago, when the building of the Rideau Canal was commenced under lieut.-col. By, of the Royal Engineers, in the year 1826, when the little settlement which grew up around the canal works as they progressed got to be called Bytown, a name which it retained until it was transformed into a city, under the name of Ottawa, by an Act of the Parliament of the old province of Canada, which took effect on the Ist of January, 1855. At that time the population was about and the city consisted almost entirely of a collection of wooden houses on the low lying land between the line of the Rideau Canal and the junction of the Rideau River with the Ottawa, and which is now comprised in By, Ottawa, and St. George's wards of the modern city. West of the Canal there were a few stone houses and a few streets laid out, but without any buildings on them except a few wooden houses scarcely much more than shanties. At this time there was great rivalry between the cities of Quebec and Montreal in what was then known as Lower Canada, now the Province of Quebec, and Toronto and Kingston, in what is now known as the Pro vince of Ontario, as to which city should be the seat of govern ment of the Province of Canada, which had been created by the Union Act of 1841. A sort of perambulating capital had been established by which the seat of government was changed every four years from Toronto, in Upper Canada, to Quebec, in Lower Canada.
