A splendid new propeller named the ARAXES, the first of a line to be called the Buffalo & Toledo Transportation Line, left here last evening for Toledo. She as well as her consort the ORONTES and the EUPHRATES, have been built here the past season, together with a fourth the WESTERN METROPOLIS, under the superintendence of Capt. Forbes, the president of the line. These vessels are all built in the best style, and are intended to be fast as well as staunch. - Buffalo Express.
