Description
Full Text

One of the finest opportunites for a delightful lake ride the present season is liable to furnish will be the excursion trip to be made tomorrow to Port Colborne, by the fine sidewheel steamer PEARL. She will leave the foot of Main St.at 10:00 A.M. and return at 4:00 P.M. The Union Concert Band will be on board, and altogether the attractions are such that the steamer ought to be freighted with as enormous a company as she can carry, especially as the fare is but 50 cents. Port Colborne, at the head of the Welland Canal, will be found a very interesting point to visit.
