THE SAULT ROUTE. - There are probably few aware of the fact that the first steamer which ever visited the Sault Ste. Marie was the Superior, in 1827, commanded at that time by Capt. W. J. Pease, with Archibald Allen as mate. It was not until eight years afterward that it was again visited, the steamer being the James Monroe, Capt. Harry Whitaker. Both of these old pioneer navigators are yet living and residents of the state of New York.
