A new propeller hull arrived here at an early hour yesterday morning, in tow of the prop. LADY FRANKLIN, from St. Joseph, Mich., at which place she was constructed by George Hanson, for Messrs. Bouton, Shaw & Morrison, of St. Joseph. She was launched on Tuesday last, and is 82 ft. keel, or 90 ft. over all, 17 ft. in breadth, 8 ft. in depth, and will be measured in the course of a few days by custom house officials. She is named the HIPPOCAMPUS and has a carrying capacity for 80,000 ft. of lumber. She will, however, ply during the green fruit season in Stevens' line, between St. Joseph and Milwaukee. - Chicago Tribune, 19th.
