p.2 The Collingwood Route - We are glad to perceive that the passenger and freight traffic by this route continues to increase. The tide of travel seems in a measure reversed, and the great bulk of passengers are going west. The steamer Louisiana has been taken from the Green Bay route, and now plys between Chicago and Collingwood. The Planet takes the place of the Buckeye State which has gone to Detroit for repairs. The line now consists of the Keystone State, Queen City, Planet and Louisiana. The steamer Collingwood has been placed on the Green Bay route, and is doing an excellent business. The following is a summary of the loads of the steamers for the past few days. The Keystone State arrived from Chicago on Monday with 30 passengers and 4,000 barrels of freight. She cleared again from Collingwood with 300 passengers, 300 tons of freight and about 50 horses. The Queen City arrived at Collingwood on Tuesday night with 30 passengers and 21,000 barrels of freight. She will sail tomorrow evening and will have a good load out. The Louisiana sailed on Tuesday with a full cargo for Michigan ports. The steamers on Lake Ontario, the Europe and Champion, are likewise doing an excellent business.

The steamer Corra Linn has been removed from her position on a shoal near Amherst Island, and was to have been brought down on Thursday, and put on the Railway. From present appearances the injuries sustained are supposed to be but trifling.
