      THE PROPELLER TROY. - The TROY had a chapter of accidents on her late trip from Buffalo to this port. She first lost some of the bolts off her steam chest, and was towed into Fairport where the damage was repaired. We next hear of her aground on Grosse Isle, afterwards with a broken shaft near Amherstburg, and finally have to report the loss of her wheel. She was brought to this port yesterday in tow, and is discharging her cargo here on protest. - Detroit Adv. Saturday.

SUB-MARINE - Sub-marine explorations in mid winter about the Detroit River are unusual, but this has so far been rather an odd winter about the lakes. The Detroit Tribune of the 5th. notices that Captain Quigley, the well known sub-marine explorer, has just made a trip with the scow St. PETER, to Malden, and has recovered the wheel of the propeller TROY, lost at the time her shaft was broken, at a late period in the fall. By means of grappling hooks attached to strong lines, the prize was recovered.
