JONES' SHIP YARD. - Any one who visits Capt. Jones' ship yard at the bend in the river, about these days, will find a lively place. On the west side, a fine schooner of 200 tons has had her three masts in, and is nearly ready for launching. She is owned by Mr. Jones and Capt. Hackett, and intended for the lumber trade.
      Another vessel is building for W.B. Hibbard, with particular referance to the lumber trade with Port Huron. Capt. Stewart is to command her. Her dimensions are 180 feet keel, 32 feet 9 inches beam and 11 feet hold, measuring 490 tons. She will cost $24,000. She will be ready for launching in about a fortnight.
      The new propeller ALLEGHANY, for the A.T. Co., to replace the propeller wrecked last fall, is being pushed forward rapidly to completion. The planking is all done, the main deck laid, and the frame for the arches is being set up. The boiler, engine frame and shaft are in, and the remaining machinery is being put in place. She will be at the docks, probably, about the 1st. of June. -- Milwaukee Sentinel.
