Navy Yard Near Detroit - We learn from the Detroit Advertiser that an effort will be made at Washington, this winter, to induce the Navy Department to re-establish the old Navy Department on the river Rouge, where there is a site that was reserved for that purpose by Government. The Advertiser says it is perhaps three miles from Detroit river, directly in the rear of the new fort, and would be in the event of a war, well defended by land. The Rouge has sufficient water for any class of war vessels that would be needed on the lakes, and its narrow and crooked channel would of itself furnish protection against sudden attacks from armed boats by making it defensible at all points. As a safe depot for timber and the materials for building armed vessels within convenient distance on the lakes, the Advertiser says, no better site could be chosen.
