PROPELLER "SUN" DISABLED.--Capt. Gebhard, of the propeller SUN, arrived last evening from Milwaukee, to have some castings made for his propeller, which had been disabled. Capt. Gebhard informs us that in a gale on Lake Michigan, on Sunday last, the propeller broke her cylinder and other portions of her engine, and was fallen in with and towed to Milwaukee by the steamer ARCTIC. The accident will probably detain her four or five days.
