PLEASANT POINT.--We spent the civic holiday, Wednesday, the 17th inst., at Pleasant Point, which is situated on the lake shore at the rear of lot 7, con. 10, Fenelon, the property of Mr. John Hay, who a few years ago built a substantial and roomy wharf entirely at his own expense. The far-famed summer resort, Sturgeon Point, about a mile and a half away across the water, has grown into a little village, as there are about seventy-five cottages thereon and persons who wish to get "far from the maddening crowd," are beginning to resort to Pleasant Point, on which we saw quite a number of tents, almost hidden in the trees. At present there is only one cottage, of which Rev. Bryce Innis of Bobcaygeon was the tenant when we were there, but Mr. Hay, who built it, told us that he intended to put up two or three more before next summer, and there can be no doubt that they will find occupants. Pleasant Point is not as high above the lake as Sturgeon Point, but is a beautiful, well-wooded spot, and there is a splendid view of the opposite shore, which is nearer than it is to Sturgeon Point.
