Steam-boat PENETANGUISHENE.

The only matter to which the Directors have now to refer is, to report to the proprietors that the Company's Steam-boat was lost on the Detroit River, by a collision with an American Steam-boat in May last. An insurance having been effected on the vessel to the extent of the supposed value, 4,000 Pounds, this amount has been recovered from the Underwriters. Her loss has led the Directors to take measures to restore the communication between Goderich and the other parts of the Province without delay, but so as to limit the expense as much as possible.
      Report of the Court of Directors of the
      Canada Company, to the proprietors, Dec. 31, 1839
