Full Text

Penetanguishene, U. C. June 7.
      The Steam Boat PENETANGUISHENE returned this day from her first trip to Sault St. Marie, Michillimackinac, and St. Josephs, on which island they left the first settlers. The whole party speak in raptures of the beauty of the scenery among the Islands on the north shore of Lake Huron, on the Lake St. George, and the River St. Marie, which cannot be surpassed in the whole Universe.
      The soil, climate and capabilities of St. Josephs exceeded the most sanguine expectations of the settlers. Several scientific gentlemen made very interesting collections of minerals.
      The PENETANGUISHENE will commence her second trip next month, to the above mentioned places, leaving Coldwater on Tuesday, 14th July.
