THE PROPELLER MAINE. - The Detroit Free Press, of Tuesday, says the propeller MAINE, belonging to the Northern Transportation Company line, arrived there from Ogdensburgh on her first trip up. She was built at Cleveland, and is of the same measurement as the EMPIRE and CLEVELAND, and others belonging to the same line, and in every respect a fine steamer, with excellent accommodations for passengers and good facilities for freight.
