      PROPELLER MOHAWK. - We paid a brief visit to this fine craft this morning, and found her in all respects superior to anything we have visited in a long time. She is 800 tons burthen of a capacity of 7500 bbls., built at Cleveland for the Western Transportation Company, and is commanded by Capt. Pheatt. Her engines were furnished by the Buffalo Works, and are models of the kind. The MOHAWK is elegantly fitted up for the accommodation of passengers and crew, and in this respect as in many others, is far ahead of her rivals. Success to her.
