A new wheel was tested yesterday on the yacht Lillie. The wheel was made of brass and had a hole the same shape as the blade in each blade, leaving a rim about three inches broad to do the propelling. It was thought that the engine would turn up much faster with this contrivance, but on the contrary it could not turn as fast as when she had a wheel the same size with solid blades. The yacht had not gone far before the wheel broke.
