Full Text

The following marine intelligence is given by the Bulletin last week:- "Navigation is now fairly open, and we are not likely to be troubled any more by ice this season. The str. Frances Smith left for Lake Superior on Friday morning with about forty-five passengers and a very full load of freight. The Cumberland will leave to-morrow. Both these steamers have been fitted up in excellent style for the summer trade and will form a bi-weekly line to Lake Superior. The str. Waubuno, Silver Spray, and Seymour have all gone on their first trip. The Spray runs to Sault Ste Marie and intermediate ports, and the Waubuno takes her old route to Parry Sound, Penetanguishene, Midland, etc. The str. Georgiana arrived from Penetanguishene on Monday evening, and looks very much better for the alterations and improvements which she has undergone. The str. McKerral is ready for business, and only waiting for something to do. Several vessels have already arrived with grain from Owen Sound, which has been stored in the N. R. elevator. The bay is alive with fishing boats and we have the usual complement of tugs.
