Daily Review (Collingwood, ON), August 25, 1863
- Full Text
We are glad to find that the steamer Clifton resumes her regular trips this day to Owen Sound... We hope Captain Smith may be more fortunate for the remainder of the season.
The steamer Plough-boy left this port on Saturday last, in tow of the steamer Michigan for Detroit, in order to be repaired. We do not expect she will be placed on this route again this season.
COLLINGWOOD AND SAULT STE MARIE ROUTE
Now that the Collingwood and Sault Ste. Marie route is without a steamer owing to the accident to the Plough-boy what we may reasonably sk is intended to be done in the matter? Does the Government intend to supply the deficiency by placing a boat on the rout at once, or holding out sufficient inducements to a private individual or company to place a steamer on the line. Either must be done. The route is too important to allow it to fall into disuse, the mails must be sent and the people at Killarney, Manitoulin, Bruce Mines, St. Joseph Sault Ste Marie, and Fort William must have means of communication with Collingwood.
