      The Barque CLAYTON. - This morning we paid a visit to this fine vessel, which lies near the swing bridge at the foot of East First street. She has been put through a thorough course of repairs by Alderman Miller, at his boat yard, and is as good as new.
      She has an entire new deck frame, rail, etc., and will have a new suit of canvas throughout. The repairs on her have been done in the most thorough and workmanlike manner, and she is now fit for years of lake service.
      The CLAYTON is a first class vessel, owned by S.D. Clark, Esq., of Chicago, and commanded by Capt. Chas. McKee, an able and experienced seaman. She goes in the lumber and grain trade between Chicago, Buffalo, Oswego and other lake ports, and will sail the latter part of the present week.
      Activity seems to be the word at Mr. Miller¹s boat yard this season. We observed a new laker which will be finished and launched the latter part of the week, and a number of canal boats and lake craft are undergoing repairs. Mr. Miller has a number of good and experienced workmen in his employ, and all work turned out by him will be found of the first order.
