A NEW PROPELLER. - The new propeller Oswego Belle was launched at Lock No. 5, Welland Canal, on Tuesday. The dimensions of the vessel are as follows: Length, 144 feet; breadth of beam, 26 feet 3 inches; depth of hold, 9 feet. The arrangement of the machinery is such that the ship will, unlike most other propellers, float on a nearly even keel, and is expected to make from twelve to fifteen miles an hour. She is intended to ply between Belleville and Oswego and intermediate ports. Being intended primarily for the passenger trade, her accommodations are first class for about eighty persons, and the cabins are furnished in a very superior manner and will be heated by steam. The entire cost of the vessel is about $34,000. She will be commanded by Capt. J. N. L. Mosher.
