SHIPBUILDING AT DETROIT. - The following statement is taken from the Tribune:
      Miscellaneous. - Messrs. H. & S. Jenkins are building at their yard above Windsor, a new tug for themselves. She is nearly planked and will be ready for launching as soon as navigation opens. Her dimensions are 90 feet long, 20 feet beam and 10 feet depth of hold. The engine and boilers for her are being constructed at St. Catharines, C. W.
      The propeller MONTGOMERY is undergoing considerable repairs, which consist principally of new covering boards, arch posts, fenders, masts and part new ceiling.
      *The steamer CITY OF TOLEDO has received new upper cabins her entire length, and is being repainted and fitted up in good style.

      STEAMER CITY OF TOLEDO. -- The Detroit Advertiser of this morning, says "During the course of the coming week the new steamer CITY OF TOLEDO, Captain Dustin, will make an effort to reach Saginaw, should her fit-out be completed by that time. During the past winter a splendid upper cabin, with ample state-rooms has been added to this steamer, rendering her accommodations for passengers in every way complete. She is also adorned with a fresh coat of paint, and withal presents an attractive appearance. Mr. Kellogg continues as purser, who, with the other officers, will be found gentlemanly and obliging."
