-The Owen Sound Times says that last week a steamer from Detroit, the Winslow, started from Penetanguishene with an immense raft of square timber in tow, bound for the Lower Lakes. The Winslow is to tow the raft to Gravelly Bay, at the mouth of the Welland Canal, not being herself able to pass the locks. Last year a similar venture was made from Georgian Bay. The raft got safely to Lake Ontario, but was there scattered by a storm, involving a very great loss to the owners. The saving, if all goes well, is immense; but it is such a "neck or nothing" enterprize, depending so entirely on the weather and the winds, that it is doubtful if ever it becomes common.
