A Propeller Burnt. - We learn from Capt. Ledyard, of the Bay State, that the new Prop. Pinto was burnt to the water's edge on Thursday night. She took fire about nine miles above Kingston, and floated down the river, and lodged against an island a few miles below Kingston, where she lay burning when the Bay State came up yesterday morning.
Two steamers went to her assistance, after she was discovered, but no person was found on board and the small boat was gone. It was supposed the crew deserted her in the boat and went to one of the Islands. Capt. Ledyard states that she was burning briskly as he passed her, and was quite down to the water's edge. The cause of the fire was unknown.
The telegraph states that twelve passengers are lost by the casualty of the Pinto. Among them Capt. Beel, and a Mr. Henderson. The purser and 12 of the crew were saved.
