Another Propeller.-- Capt. Lundy left port in the CHAUTAUQUA to-day for Grand River, for the purpose of towing down the Canadian armed steamer TORONTO, (formerly GENERAL PORTER) which has been purchased by Capt. C. Gager, with a view to converting her into a steam propeller. The P. was originally American, but on the breaking out of the patriot revolution, she was sold to the British at a good round price, and is now bought back at a sacrifice.-- Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
