Public Vessels at Sackets Harbor. - The National Intelligencer contains the following statement, from the Navy Department, respecting the vessels belonging to the United States, lying at Sackets Harbor:
Ship New-Orleans, well covered, and in a state of preservation.
Chippewa, do do do
Superior, has fallen over on her bilge, dismantled, roof taken off, all the spars, tops, &c. off her decks.
Mohawk, dismantled, covered with a roof, gone down, with her gun deck above water, on an even keel, and soft bottom.
Pike, same situation in all respects.
Madison, same situation in all respects.
Brig Jefferson, dismantled, covered with a roof, on her bilge - the water having receded almost entirely from her.
Jones, gone down, gun-deck above water, too low to attempt getting her up, without incurring more expense than she is worth.
Sylph, dismantled, and gone down on a good soft bottom, gun-deck above water, on an even keel.
Oneida, useless.
Gun-boats, decaying.
Lady of the Lake, a vessel of one gun, has been in commission for the protection of the revenue, was reported on the 2d of April last, as requiring such extensive repairs as to render her repair inexpedient, for any service she could possibly render to the Navy of the United States.

All of these vessels, with the exception of the first two named, viz, the New Orleans and the Chippewa, (106 gun ships,) are in a state of decay. The New Orleans and the Chippewa (the only vessels of the line among them) are in a state of preservation.
