Michipicten, Aug. 22 - Inasmuch as the undersigned, passengers on the stm. SAM WARD, left the Sault Ste. Marie on the 13th inst., on the first pleasure excursion around Lake Superior, which, being now about to close, we take pleasure in giving form to our opinion of the WARD and her officers: Therefore,
      Resolved, That the stm. SAM WARD is a staunch, sea-worthy boat, and her appointments "first class." That in Capt. Eastabrook we have found a creful, skillful, obliging and gentlemanly navigator, one in whom the travelling public may implicitly confide. That we feel and express our thanks to Mate Ryder; Clerk Porter; Steward Warner and all others, for their uniform courtsey and faithful discharge of their duties. That we are peculiarly indebted to Mr. R.L. Montgomery, Purveyor General to Ward's Line of steamers, for his unremitting efforts to gratify ever known wish of passengers, for his bountiful supply of creature comforts, and the exercise of his eminent social qualities. That we duly appreciate the liberal and far-seeing policy of E.B. Ward, in the free use of means solely to develope the resources of the great country we have enjoyed on this excursion, and that we part with regret, each wishing the other long life and a safe return to that haven called home. That a copy of these proceedings be furnished to the members of the Press on board and to the Detroit papers, with the request that they publish the same.
