Ericsson's Propellers - We have been much gratified in learning, from one of the spirited proprietors of the barges which have been fitted up with this machinery, that they answered their fullest expectations; and the circumstance of one of the barges, (herself being heavily loaded) having towed down the rapids of the St. Lawrence, in perfect safety two other barges, also heavily laden, in a very short period to Montreal, is quite conclusive of the advantages arising out fo the adoption of the scheme. Messrs. Sanderson & Murray are well entitled to the thanks of the whole community for its application; and we have no doubt their enterprize will lead to the extensive application of the propeller. Several schooners are already building, furnished with these engines, which will be ready early in the spring; and which will produce a most important improvement in our communication with the upper lakes and Montreal. -- Kings. Chron.
