This steamer has not been running for the last two weeks owing to some injury sustained on her downward trip, somewhere about the Manitoulin Islands. Immediate steps were taken to put her in running order which we hope will soon-be. A large quantity of goods are still at Sturgeon Bay and Orillia intended for this place and a great quantity of stuff intended for the Sault Ste. Marie is still here.
