NEW PROPELLER. - The propeller ROSSETER towed into Chicago on Sunday noon, (says the Tribune) the hull of a new propeller, recently launched at Racine, for W.T. Richmond, Esq., of that place. Her dimensions are as follows; Length 100 feet; breadth of beam, 18 feet; depth of hold, 7 feet 6 inches. She is constructed of the best white oak, and is a strong built craft. She is designed to run between Chicago and the lumber ports, to carry about 80,000 feet of lumber, and is to be fitted up for the accommodation of passengers. her size is such that she can easily be taken through the canal, should her owner conclude to send her to New Orleans at the close of navigation. She is lying at P.W. Gates & Co.'s dock, where she will be completed and fitted with machinery.
