ACCIDENT TO A PROPELLER. - The Cleveland Herald says that the propeller EUPHRATES of the New York Central Railroad in going out of Sandusky Bay on Tuesday night, got out of the channel and grounded hard. Coming on to blow, the sand was washed from under her, midships, and she settled, breaking in two. She was loaded with produce and stock. She is being unloaded, but what the extent of the injury is cannot be determined until she is unloaded.

      Nearly or quite all of the machinery of the prop. EUPHRATES, has been recovered from the wreck at the mouth of the Bay and is being loaded for Cleveland, to be put in a new propeller building there to supply the place of the lost one. We are not advised of the condition of the machinery recovered, but presume it is in as good a condition as could have been expected.
