Opening of Navigation

COLLINGWOOD - The ice is now nearly all out of the harbor. The Chicago line of steamers are now loading in order to commence their regular trips with this place during the last week. The steamer Ploughboy is being thoroughly renovated, with the view to an early start. The gentlemanly and obliging master, Captain D. McLean, will again command her this season. The steamer Clifton has been thoroughly overhauled and refitted during the winter, and is now ready under the command of Captain W. H. Smith to commence her regular daily trips, so soon as the ice in Owen Sound Bay will permit her to leave. In addition to these vessels we are creditably informed that arrangements are being made to run a steamer between this port and Fort William, and steps are to be taken by the Government for the opening up immediately of a direct communication from this town to the Red River territory.
