STEAMER IN THE PORT OF UTICA ? - The fast sailing propeller M.V. SCHYLER, of 16 tons burden, says the Utica Gazette of yesterday, two days from Albany, passed up the canal last evening in fine style and brought to in Munson's Basin. She is a pretty boat and is intended for towing on Oneida Lake. We have not been able to get a list of the passengers and confess to great ignorance concerning the cargo.

QUITE A NOVELTY. - A small propeller arrived here on Sunday last from Albany, Via the Erie Canal. She is called the M.V. SCHUYLER. Her tonnage is 16, 77-95 tons, and is commanded by Capt. E. Ellis. She is rather a smart little craft, and is said to make about 12 miles per hour. She left this morning for Chippewa, where she will be used for the purpose of towing vessels up Chippewa Creek. &c.

The little propeller M.V. SCHUYLER, which left here the other day for Chippewa, has returned, her owner not being able to come to terms with Queen Vic's subjects.
