THE NEW PROPELLER OHIO.--This fine propeller--now fitting out here, will be on of the finest boats of the class on the lakes. She was built last winter for Mr. L.D. Burnell, at Black River. Her tonnage--custon house measurement is 411.65/9--Length of keel 160 feet; breadth of beam 26 feet; depth of hold 11 and a half feet. She is capable of storing 4,000 bbls. bulk. Her upper cabin arrangement will be perfect. Her engine, which is singularly compact, is from the Cuyahoga Steam Furnace Works and is supported by columns--a new arrangement and with its massive boilers--22 feet long and 8 feet diameter, containing fourteen 15 inch tubes and three 10 inch flues, will undoubtedly propel her at rapid rate. Capt Hagedon will command her.-----Cleveland Plain dealer
