MASONIC EXCURSION FROM COLLINGWOOD TO MCGREGOR'S HARBOUR - The new and beautifully modelled iron steamer, Chicora, left Collingwood last Tuesday morning, with some 500 excursionists on board, the masons appearing in full regalia. They were accompanied by two bands of music. The trip to Meaford was very rough, and many were sea-sick - so much so, that a few left the steamer and returned overland to Collingwood. Shortly after leaving Meaford, however the weather became calm, and a pleasant trip engaged - dancing and other amusements making the time pass joyously. Under the circumstances- the steamer being still in an unfinished state-the trip was a most agreeable one, everything being done by Capt. McLean and his officers and men, to make the party as comfortable as possible. The Mayor of Collingwood accompanied the party, and contributed his share to the general enjoyment. Our space prevents our writing more at present, but we shall allude to the Chicora again.
