SHIPBUILDING AT DETROIT. - The following statement is taken from the Tribune:
Stewart McDonald's Yard. - There is being built a top-sail schooner for Brooks & Adams, 126 feet in length over all, 25 feet beam, and 7 feet depth of hold in the clear. She is intended for the lumber trade exclusively; and will carry 150,000 feet.
      Arrangements have been completed to commence the construction of a bark for Geo. W. Bissel & Co. She will be ready to launch about the 1st. of June, and probably earlier. Her dimensions will be 175 feet long, 35 feet beam, and 12 feet 6 inches depth of hold. She is intended to be a superior vessel every way, and will carry 32,000 bushels of grain.
* The scow ANGELIQUE is on the railway at this place, and is being partially rebuilt. She is to receive new spars and other necessary paraphernalia.
      The side-wheel steamer St. CLAIR is lying at the wharf, and we understand it is intended to put a new engine into her and turn her into a propeller. She is owned by Flower & Bro.
