SHIPBUILDING AT DETROIT. - The following statement is taken from the Tribune:
* The old schooner ENTERPRISE, which has been lying dismantled and sunk several years, near the upper portion of the city, is being repaired, and put in condition for service.
      The propeller SALINA, owned by Messrs. Gallagher & Tremalne, of Marine City, and built by P. Leslie, at that place, is having her machinery, which was constructed by Flower & Bro., placed in her. This craft is 141-1/2 feet long, 26 feet beam, and 10 feet depth of hold. She will be ready for business by the opening of navigation. She is intended for the Saginaw and Toledo lumber trade, exclusively for freighting, and is a good, substantial craft, without upper cabin.
