      The Enterprize says the steamer FRED HOTCHKISS was launched in the Bay at Collingwood on Thursday of last week. It being the first steam boat launched there a great many people assembled to witness the sight. She is owned by Mr. Hotchkiss and is intended to ply between Collingwood and Muskoka River where Mr. Hotchkiss has a large lumbering establishment and the largest timber limits we believe owned by any one person on the north shore of Lake Huron. Long may she float.
