The Shipyards. - We took a hasty observation, yesterday, of the Shipyards of this city, and were surprised to observe the great progress that has been made upon the new vessels on the stocks, considering the unfavorable weather during this winter.

There are now six noble vessels, and a steam tug, on the stocks, nearly finished, which will be ready to launch by the first of April. The total tonnage of these vessels is about twenty-five hundred. Ald. Rogers has two vessels in his yard, of beautiful model, and staunchly built, besides a steam tug for Ald. Dobbie, which is a perfect beauty, and is calculated to "take down" any thing of the kind on this or any other Lake. One of the two vessels is for Messrs. Clemow & Bloore, and the other for ----. James A. Baker has one vessel in his yard, Mr. Miller one in his; Mr. Goble one in his, for Sylvester Doolittle; and Messrs. Lee & Lamoree one for Ald. Colborn. They are all first class vessels, and do great credit to the city in the line of marine architectural skill.
