SHIPBUILDING AT DETROIT. - The following statement is taken from the Tribune:
      Campbell & Owen's Yard. - In one of their dry docks the Northern Transportation Company's propeller GRANITE STATE is lying, which is being thoroughly rebuilt, from stem to stern.
      In the other dry dock the tug SAMPSON is being rebuilt, and will, it is expected, be ready for the opening of navigation. When completed she will be a superior first-class tug, and one of the largest on the lakes.
* The barge OCEAN has undergone some very extensive repairs, including new arches, which have been placed in her. She is now as good as new.
