p.2 Vessels At the Shipyard - The schooner Defiance completed her repairs, and left the Marine Railway yesterday. She was followed on the ways by a barge, which occupied but a short time to get the necessary work done upon her. The barque Arabia followed the barge, and is now in the hands of the shipwrights. The damage sustained by the Arabia is estimated at a sum approaching to $3,000. There is some talk of the proprietors of the yard commencing the building of another vessel, the last one launched from there, the Annandale, having turned out extremely well.
