ANOTHER NEW PROPELLER. -- Thr propeller BRUNSWICK, Capt, Lathrop, came into port yesterday afternoon, having the new propeller MOUNT VERNON in tow. She was built at Huron by Keating & Ketchum, for Messrs. Stevens & Ryan, and Wright & Sprague, of Milan and Huron, and jason Parker, of this city. She has been brought here to have her engine and wheel put in, which will be done immediately. It was built during the past winter, by Sidney Shepard, of this city, who is so well known as a successful builder of this description of machinery. The dimensions of the VERNON are; - Length 198 feet; breadth of beam, 30 feet; depth of hold, 11 feet 8 inches, and she is of 583 tons burthen, custom house measurement.

The new propeller MOUNT VERNON, built at Huron during the past winter, for Jason Parker, of this city and others, and which has been receiving her boilers, engine, and wheel at Shepard's Iron Works, went out Saturday evening on a trial trip. She appears to work admirably, and will be a valuable acquisition to our lake fleet.

      The new propeller MOUNT VERNON, which has been up the Creek some time, getting her machinery put in, cleared for Huron Saturday night. We have given description of her heretofore, and have only to add that she is as fine a looking propeller as comes into our harbor, and is now ready for business.
