VESSELS REPAIRING. --We noticed at Campbell & Owen's shipyard yesterday the following vessels undergoing repairs and improvements: The bark SUMMER CLOUD, which heretofore has been a standing keel vessel, has had that appendance reduced and a center-board placed in her. The old steamer DART, at the same place, is being dismantled and her engine transferred to the new boat. The schooner ADVANCE , in a badly crippled condition, is in dock for repairs, and the brig BANNER is undergoing a thorough rebuilt. The bark COL. ELLSWORTH, which has also been repairing at this yard, has about completed the same, and has ere this taken her departure - Detroit Free Press.

The brig BANNER, which since the early part of the summer has been undergoing reconstruction at Campbell & Owen shipyard, came out of the dock yesterday and dropped down the stream, preparatory to bending her sails and taking her departure. Those who formerly knew this vessel were unable, after close inspection, to discover any material which ever belonged to the former ship, so thoroughly and unmistakeably has the work been done. Save the name, she may be considered a new craft, while in model and general appearance there has been a decided improvement effected, and for strength of build she has no superior. The BANNER is owned by John Stafford, of Chicago, and commanded by Capt. John McElligott, a sound and practical navigator.
