VESSEL BUILDING AT MILWAUKEE. - We learn from the Milwaukee Wisconsin, . . . . At Allen, McLelland & Co.'s yard, they are building a scow calculated to carry 80,000 feet of lumber. She is nearly completed, and is built very staunch and strong.
      Near the scow lies the schooner THREE BELLS, which has just been rebuilt at a cost of $4,000.
The same firm are engaged in rebuilding the propeller J. BARBER, new ribs and planking taking the place of the old, in a most substantial manner, and when again afloat she will be as good as new. She will run to Manistee the coming season. The total cost of repairs on her, will amount to upwards of $7,000.
