REPAIRS OF THE PROPELLER " MOHAWK." - This propeller, the property of the Western Transportation Company, is now being overhauled and repaired at her dock in the Erie Basin, from stem to stern. There is at present a force of twenty-three men at work on her, and we learn the company are to replace every unsound timber with new, in which event she will undoubtedly come out in the spring as good as when first built.

      MARINE REPAIRS. - The majority of the Western Transportation Company's propellers are now undergoing thorough repairs, preparatory to the hard service which will be required of them during the coming season. The MOHAWK, which was so nearly demolished by the explosion of last fall, and has been under the hand of the ship-carpenters all winter, is neary made whole again, and will be ready to resume her trips on, or at least shortly after, the opening of navigation.
The MARY STEWART is being partially provided with new decks and arches, and new stern is being put into the MAYFLOWER. The FREE STATE's main deck is being rejuvenated, and an arch is in process of construction in her hold. The MISSOURI will have a boiler deck; the SAGINAW will be thoroughly overhauled, and the schooner CAIRO is also to be subjected to sundry repairs.

THE PROPELLER MOHAWK. -- This favorite vessel, which met with a mishap on the Flats last fall, by the bursting of her boiler, has been thoroughly rebuilt during the past winter and spring, and is now ready for commission. She is, take her all in all, the best propeller on the lakes, much better, in every respect, than she was the first day she came out. She is a strong as wood and iron can make her. She is fitted up in fine style, and has the largest and widest cabin of any of the screw steamers. She is still under the command of that most competent seaman and prince of good fellows, H. D. Pheatt. She leaves tomorrow afternoon for Chicago, on her first trip this season, from the dock foot of Michigan street. J. T. Flint, passenger Agent.
