      PROPELLERS - This class of steamers has largely increased this season, the number reaching nearly or quite forty, it is said. The first steamer of this class came out in the spring of 1842, hailing from Oswego, and was called the VANDALIA. She was 150 tons burden, sloop-rigged. Two others came out in 1842, named respectively the CHICAGO and OSWEGO, and 150 tons burden each. The VANDALIA was enlarged in 1846 and called the MILWAUKEE, and was subsequently broken up or lost.
