STEAMER MINNISSITUNK. - This elegant little steam boat lately built at Goderich by the Canada Company, made her first trip from that place to Sandwich on Wednesday the 16th inst. and performed that passage - a distance of 150 mile - in 14 hours, carrying on an average less than 4 inches of steam. This boat will ply regularly between the two ports before named, twice a week; and will therefore afford a regular, expeditious and cheap conveyance, to the Capital of the Huron Territory. The engine of the "MINNISSITUNK" was made in our city by our enterprising neighbors, Sheldon, Ducher and Company. ----- Toronto Courier.

      "The MINESSETUNK, (sic) afterwards the GODERICH, came in collision with the ERIE in Detroit River, in the month of August, 1840, and was sunk. The steamer now known as the GODERICH, was formerly the GORE, L. L. (lower lakes)"
