THE DETROIT. - This new steamer, now in an unfinished state, has been towed down from Detroit to this port by the WISKONSAN, which returned from her upper lake excursion yesterday. The DETROIT is quite a large vessel, perhaps 550 tons burthen and will be fitted up with a new high pressure engine, daily expected here from N. Y. Her boilers and part of her hull were formerly in the VERMILLION. She will be ready for commission, it is supposed, by the 1st September.
