NEW PROPELLER.- Messrs. Hyslop & Ronald's new propeller CITY OF CHATHAM passed Windsor from Milwaukee last night loaded with 14,730 bushels of corn, 50 bbls. of flour and 300 bbls. of pork, all for Montreal -- equivalent in weight to 18,200 bushels of corn, as large a load as can be got through the Welland Canal. The engineer reports the engine as working in a most perfect manner, never having stopped except while lying in port, since she left Chatham. A Milwaukee paper says "The new Canadian propeller CITY OF CHATHAM arrived at this port yesterday, and attracted considerable attention."
      Several Milwaukee mechanics visited her, and pronounced her machinery the best they had ever seen in a Canadian propeller. Mr. Hyslop met her at Sarnia yesterday, and came down in her to Windsor; he is fully satisfied with the engineers report that the excellent working of the machinery, and says the boat has never yet had a heated journal. - Chatam Planet, May 17.
