SHIP-BUILDING AT PORT HURON, St. CLAIR RIVER.-- We learn from the Commercial that J. Randall, at his ship-yard at that place, has some 40 men at work, and has three vessels under way. The first a schooner of 185 tons, for F.L. Wells and Capt. E. Fitzgerald, is nearly completed . She is of the clipper build, heavily timbered and is bolted and fastened in a firm and substantial manner. A schooner has her keel laid, and much of her work is in a forward state; she is of 109 tons burthen, and will make a fine craft. She is to run as packet up the lake shore, and to extend her trips as far down as Sandusky City. J.K. Lockwood is her owner. A miniture schooner of 130 tons burden, will soon be completed. She is being built for James McCort, to be used for a fishing boat.
      There is also a schooner of 100 tons burden at the yard at Black River, on the stocks, and ready for planking. This is being built for Capt. Bedford, and will make a capital lumber vessel. E. Harrington is the builder.
