To Owners of Vessels on the North American Lakes. - The subscriber, having the agency, and being a joint proprietor in the right (on the above waters) of "Ericsson's Propellers," a recent important invention, by which vessels can be propelled, in the absence of favorable winds, at the rate of seven miles an hour, at a trifling expense - thus enabling vessels to make about double the trips made with canvass (sic) only. The weight of machinery necessary for a vessel of one hundred and fifty tons, including water in boiler, five and a half tons. In point of speet, certainty and economy, this improvement cannot but be received most favorably by all interested, and is confidently recommended to their consideration. For further particulars, inquire of J. VAN CLEVE.
