PROPELLER GENERAL TAYLOR. -- The Milwaukee News of Wednesday, says:
One steam pump was unable to free this propeller of the water in her, accordingly a second one was put to work yesterday, and both succeeded in raising her so that a sail was enabled to pass over the leak. Last evening she was pretty nearly dry.
