Capt. Dana, of the tug LION is at present engaged in pumping out and getting in readiness the hull of the old stmr. SULTANA, which for a year past has been lying idle at the foot of Hog Island, for the purpose of towing her to Saginaw, there to fill her up with lumber for Henry Doty's lumber yard in this city. Two such cargoes as this old hulk could bring down would be sufficient to supply this and the surrounding country for a season at the least, as lumber sales are at present. She will be in readiness to take her departure, we are informed, this afternoon.

      The project of sending the hull of the steamer SULTANA to Saginaw for a cargo of lumber has, we believe, been abandoned. She has been found too frail for even that purpose, and willl consequently have to finally retire to the shades. -- Detroit Tribune.
