ANOTHER PROPELLER. - A new, and very fine propeller, built at this place the past season, starts her steam today. She is called the "ALLEGHANY" - measures 400 tons - was built by Moses, her engine by Sterling, and painted by Willird & Howe. She is the largest vessel of the kind on the lakes, has a fine cabin, furnished with double state-rooms, intended for the upper lake trade - a large steerage, and accommodations to suit the increasing emigration to the west. She is owned by Wick & Morgan, Moses, the builder, and Jennet & Miner, of Sandusky. She is commanded by Captain Spencer, and leaves for Buffalo this evening. - Cleveland Plaindealer.
