The PAUGASSETT. -- This new propeller built at Cleveland during the past winter for Capt's. R. and A. E. Hart and Kimberley, Pease & Co., came down yesterday from Cleveland, and if we are allowed to express an opinion we would say, that she is not behind any of the propellers afloat. She is of very light draught, and we understand makes excellent time, shi is sailed by Capt. R. hart, a sailor every inch of him.

      PROPELLER PAUGASSETT. -- This new propeller, which was brought out this spring by Capt. R. Hart, arrived in port on Saturday with a cargo of 2,600 bbls. flour. She is a fine business craft, 140 feet long, 24 feet 4 and a 1/2 inches beam and 9 feet 8 inches hold, and of 260 tons burthen. Few vessels are better adapted to the trade for which she is designed, than this craft. She is staunch in every part, well arranged for business, has propelling power enough, and must prove to her owners a profitable investment. -- Buffalo Express.
