A NEW PROPELLER. - The fine propeller " BUCEPHALUS," Alexander, Master, came into port yesterday, with a large cargo from Perrysburgh, where she has been built during the last winter. Through the politeness of Capt. Alexander, we have her dimensions:--160 ft. keel, 28 ft. beam, 11 ft. hold, burden 500 tons. The engine is fron the Buffalo Steam Engine Works, and is one of the best we have ever seen on a propeller, and is expected to drive her 12 miles the hour.
We understand she is owned by John Hollister, E.D. Peck, and Capt. Alexander. Running weekly between Perrysburg, Toledo and Buffalo.
