BUILDING OF THE ONTONAGON. - The propeller ONTONAGON, owned by Messrs. Leopold & Austrian of this city, is now in the shipyard of Dolittle & Olcott, having been rebuilt from the water's edge. The work is of the most substantial character, her new arches being nineteen and a half inches in thickness. Her engine and other machinery were built by Messrs. Atkins & Burgees, and are said to be the largest ever manufactured in this city. The ONTONAGON will be ready to take her place in the Lake Superior line, as soon as navigation opens. - Chicago Journal.
