Work Enough At The Ship Yards. - We happened down to Lee & Navaugh's ship yard yesterday afternoon and found things like "business" in that part of the city. Mr. Navaugh is just laying the keel of another schooner for Messrs. DeWolfe and Smythe, and is soon to commence building yet another for the same parties. The new vessels will probably be built of the same model as the Cortez, which was launched a few weeks since.

The Cortez is "on her travels" and proves just what she looked to be, a staunch, sea-worthy and splendid vessel, with no superior among her class.

We saw some timber waiting to be worked up into the new schooners, which looks as though it might withstand the agencies of decay and ride through the strain and storm of a century. We learn that Mr. Goble is about to begin the construction of two first class schooners, for parties in this city, and altogether it is likely to be a busy season at the ship yards.
