PROPELLER "St. JOSEPH". --- This fine propeller will move to her berth to-day, and commence loading for Chicago. The St.JOSEPH is indeed a splendid vessel of the propeller class. She is fitted up with elegant gentleman's and ladies cabins, with state-rooms large and airy; and is propelled by two powerful engines, capable of propelling her at a rate equal to common steamboat time. She is commanded by Capt. J. Imson, long known on the lakes as a gentlemanly and experienced captain.
