AT THE SHIPYARDS. - At Manitowoc the schooner TRAVELER was thoroughly rebuilt, and her name changed to HENRY BERGER.
The schooner RAINBOW has been thoroughly rebuilt, and now classes A2.
The schooner Imperial has also been rebuilt. . . . .
Another old vessel that comes out this spring with a new lease on life is the IMPERIAL, formerly of Chicago. She was bought at Marshal's sale last fall by P. Johnston and O. Forrison. She will be out May 1st. Her repairs are about the same as COLLINS, though she is a little the larger of the two, and will probably cost $10,000.
