FREE BATH - On Saturday afternoon while rolling a barrel to the Algoma, the gangway slipped and landed a coloured gentleman and the load in the water.

The ALGOMA - This steamer arrived from the upper lakes on Wednesday. The Algoma left again for Fort William on Saturday afternoon a large number of passengers and a full freight of general goods. The excursion season may be said to have fairly commenced. Judging from the number of pleasure seekers now going up the lakes.

ARRIVAL OF THE CHICORA - The steamer Chicora arrived from Fort William on Monday afternoon. She brought down 65 barrels of silver ore from the Islet to Bruce Mines... The Chicora leaves for Fort William this afternoon.

PLEASURE TRIPS - Every steamer now carries up large numbers of tourists for the lakes... Among the passengers who went up by the Waubuno last Monday were are old friends the Rev. James Roy...

GOOD FOR PARRY SOUND - The steward of the steamer Waubuno brought us a basket of green peas on Monday. They were sent by Samuel Armstrong of Parry Sound and were raised in his garden. Judging from the size and quality of the fruit we should imagine Parry Sound cannot be the cold, barren place some people would have us believe.

EXCURSION - Those who are fond of a good pleasure trip will do well to avail themselves of the excursion to Penetanguishene next Friday under the auspices of the Good Templers. The Waubuno leaves this place at 9 o'clock and will remain four hours at Penetanguishene. The band have been engaged and every preparation made for a pleasant time. We hope to see the steamer crowded.
