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.
