PROPELLER GLOBE. - This propeller, which was altered from a side-wheel steamer, a short time since---a small ten foot wheel being inserted for a propeller---is now making her rapid regular trips. She is commanded by Capt. Pratt, and on her last trip from Milwaukee to this port, made the trip in eighty-one hours, with a thousand tons of freight on board, distancing all competitors, in the way of propellers, and proving that small wheels (to a certain point) are better than larger ones. This is the quickest trip we have heard of lately, made by a propeller. She carries out, on her up trip, over twelve hundred tons of freight, and is the crack vessel so far.
