York, April 30th - Captain Patterson, of the Schooner May Flower, last week tried in this Harbour the power of a Machine which he has invented for the purpose of propelling small Vessels in light winds, or to work out of a Harbor with a contrary wind.

The experiment completely answered his expectations, the vessel proceeding, with a comparatively small power, at the rate of 3 knots or miles per hour; and he feels confident that when the machinery is complete, it will perform at the rate of 5 miles per hour.
