We are very much gratified in seeing that Captain Smith’s new steamboat the "Frances Smith" is progressing toward completion quite rapidly. We are assured that every exertion is being made to have her ready to run down to Collingwood on Wednesday next the 22 inst., and on Friday there will be a grand excursion on her from Meaford to Owen Sound, (at 50 cents each) calling at Cape Rich, in order to celebrate the Queen’s birthday. By reference to our advertising it will be seen that the "Frances Smith" intends commencing her regular trips on Thursday 23rd inst.
