Ericsson Propellers. - The new and elegant schooner Vandalia, to which is attached the above invention, built at this port the past summer by our enterprising fellow-citizens, Messrs. Bronson & Crocker, Mr. S. Doolittle and Capt. J. Van. Cleve, has just made her first trip, and has more than realized the most sanguine expectations of her owners and friends. The practicability of the application of the propellers for lake navigation has been fully tested, this vessel having been out in some of our roughest weather. Last Thursday she entered our harbor in fine style at the rate of seven or eight knots per hour, without any assistance but her propellers.
