PENETANGUISHENE. -- The steamer GEORGIANA arrived here on Monday. She is intended to run between Waubaushene, Victoria Harbour, Midland Penetanguishene and Collingwood. The enterprise of our two citizens has thus supplied a long felt want and henceforth communication by water with the Georgian Bay towns will be more regular and reliable.

THE STEAMER GEORGIANA. - Meanwhile our enterprising Penetang neighbours send us their new steamboat the GEORGIANA, at intervals to enliven the declining season, not to steak of our WAUBUNO, which comes now twice a week since the GEORGIANA took to the water.
