Ericsson's Propellers. -- Mr. James Averill, from Maine, has opened a shipyard in this city.
on the north side of the river, near the north pier. He is an experienced Ship builder, and we trust his location will prove advantageous both to himself and to this coturnunity. He is now building for Messrs Bristol and Porter, and we believe Mr. C. Walker, a vessel to be moved by Ericsson's Propellers. She is to be 112 feet keel, 25 bean and 9½ in depth. She will he of 250 tons. burthen, and efforts will be made to complete her by June next. These steamers bid fair to supercede nearly all others on the northern waters. The tonnage of this one will be the same as that of those now being built on the lower lakes. It seems that white oak of an excellent quality and well calculated for ship building, is obtained on the North Branch, within ten miles of this city. It is quite equal to the white oak of Maine. In this respect Mr. Averill has been agreeably disappointed. --- Chicago Express.
