THE TIMBER TRADE. - At the present time there is an anxious inquiry for timber vessels for freighting that commodity from the shore of Lake Erie, Saginaw and the Georgian Bay. There are but few vessels of the above class in commission. The timber business has largely increased, being shipped to Montreal and Quebec, thence transferred to timber traders and conveyed across the Atlantic to various European ports. The kind of timber thus so extensively exported is principally the white oak, of which Michigan furnishes a very superior quality.
