Marinemen coming across the lake last night state that the smoke is again very thick, and a great drawback to navigation.

Repairs are being made on the steamer Neepawah at Detroit. It will be necessary to remove fifty-six plates from the bottom and a number of damaged frames must be repaired. The job will take about three weeks.

The schooner Lizzie Metzner, owned by Capt. Daryaw, has been sold to Messrs. Eves and Bell, who lost their steambarge Robert McDonald by fire some time ago. The machinery of the McDonald will be erected in the Metzner, which will be made a steambarge.
