Marine Intelligence - Port of Detroit, Nov. 7

PROPELLER PROBABLY LOST. - The schooner Circassian, which arrived at this port yesterday from below, reports having seen, on Saturday, when about 15 miles off Port Burwell, a large quantity of boxes and other western-bound freight floating upon the surface of the lake. There were also beds and bedding, and portions of a propeller. From these circumstances it was supposed that some propeller had been lost, and perhaps the whole of her crew with her.

Since the above was written, a telegraphic dispatch which is to be found in another column, informs us that the propeller Ohio was blown up on Sunday morning. This is probably the wreck seen by the Circassian, a mistake having been made as to the time.
