The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Northern Advance (Barrie, ON), Wednesday April 13, 1859

Full Text

We take an excellent article on the present and future of Collingwood from the Maritime Economists which will be found in to-day's paper. Navigation has been fairly aroused in that quarter by the arrival and departure of several sailing crafts. The first steamer of the Collingwood line Ontonogon arrived on Saturday last from Chicago and lake Michigan ports with a cargo equal to 3, 100 barrels of flour besides passengers. The tri-weekly communication with the west is fully established and we hope the Northern Railways Steamers will reap that measure of business which present prospects hold out to them. Communication with Sault Ste Marie and the north shore of Superior is provided by the steamer Rescue Capt. Dick who by the way is universally known as one of the most popular commanders of Lake Ontario, besides a reasonable prospect for the Green Bay trade as we understand negotiations are pending the running of one steamer on that route at least. With all this machinery in motion Collingwood must indeed thrill with busy life.
