THE STEAMER COLLINGWOOD - It will be seen by the advertisement in to-day's issue, that the steamer Collingwood, late the Kaloolah, is to be sold at Collingwood Harbour on the 1st May next. This well known boat was originally purchased by its present shareholders for the purpose of running regularly during the season on five days a week to Owen Sound and one day to Penetanguishene, but the Canadian, having been unexpectedly put on the Owen Sound line, the shareholders, after losing the Spring business, had to look out for a new route, and against which heavy drawback, she still, we are given to understand, did a fair business. The Collingwood before she was put on her route last spring, underwent a thorough repair, upwards of $8000 having been expanded upon her, she has been most carefully laid up during the winter, and can be got ready for sea at a moment's notice. She has proved herself an excellent sea boat, and whilst she replaced the... of the Green Bay route, made her trips more regularly than any boat on the line.
