BRITISH ROUTE TO LAKE SUPERIOR. - The steamer GORE resumes her station on the routes between the Sault Ste. Marie and Toronto, under the command of Capt. Samuel Peck, a pioneer of our northern waters and possessing all the qualifications for a popular steamboat captain. This route, via Lake Simcoe and Owen's Sound, is represented to us, by those who have been through, as one well worth the patronage of those who would save time and also witness a variety of scenery unsurpassed on any other thoroughfare to Lake Superior. The route is cheap, and is gone over, from the Sault to Toronto , in about sixty hours. At present, semi monthly trips only are performed, but exertions are being made by our enterprising neighbors over the river to secure a weekly mail, which they certainly stand in need of, and which would give them weekly trips of the GORE and a greatly increased travel on the route.
