      . . . . .

The propeller MONTEZUMA, which left our port last evening with a cargo
of flour for Buffalo, when near Sheboygan, her flues gave out, making her
unable to proceed on her trip. She was towed back to our city this morning
by the CLEVELAND, and now lies in the river. It was thought by some she
would be unable to return to Buffalo this fall, but the captain assured us that
she will be able to proceed on her trip in the course of 24 hours, if her flues
can be repaired here.-------Milwaukee Wisconsin

from the Monomonee Foundry, and cleared again for Buffalo,last evening.-------
