THE NORTHWEST. -- The steamer NORTHWEST of the Cleveland & Detroit Line, is in dry dock at Detroit, undergoing a thorough rebuild. The hull will receive new keelsons, ribs, planks, ceiling and floor. The cabin will also be rebuilt. The cost will be nearly as much as would be required to build a new boat, and the reason that the NORTHWEST is to be rebuilt is because she is known to be one of the best sea boats afloat, and the rebuild is to preserve the model complete. She will be fully as good as new.
