You're not using normal shell quotes...
If I cut and paste your --rsh line into this:
$ LANG=C cat -v
I get the following output:
--rsh=M-bM-^@M-^Y/usr/bin/ssh -i /home/rsync/.ssh/id_dsaM-bM-^@M-^Y /etc

Those escapes match exactly the \#342\#200\#231 shown in your error

Use ' not ’ is the short version of this answer.
