VESSELS REPAIRING. --We noticed at Campbell & Owen's shipyard yesterday the following vessels undergoing repairs and improvements: The bark SUMMER CLOUD, which heretofore has been a standing keel vessel, has had that appendance reduced and a center-board placed in her. The old steamer DART, at the same place, is being dismantled and her engine transferred to the new boat. The schooner ADVANCE , in a badly crippled condition, is in dock for repairs, and the brig BANNER is undergoing a thorough rebuilt. The bark COL. ELLSWORTH, which has also been repairing at this yard, has about completed the same, and has ere this taken her departure - Detroit Free Press.

      We made a visit yesterday to this fine little steamer, now building at the upper end of the city. She is owned by Messrs. Larned & Ward, and Capt. Seliah Dustin. She is to be run between this city and Toledo, and will be commanded by Capt. Dustin. From a brief inspection, we conceived a very favorable opinion of the work that has been completed, and were assured that what was yet unfinished would be completed in an equally neat manner. The joiner work is under the direction of Messrs. Knowles & Gibbings, who are executing it in the most handsome style. Johnston, Wayne & Co., are the makers of the machinery. The dimensions of the DART are, 160 ft. keel, 23 ft. beam and 8 1/2 ft. hold; tonnage about 330.
