United States vessels at the Navy-yard.

The sloop-of-war Jamestown, which was taken off the dry-dock last week, will be fitted for sea in a short time. The steamer Water Witch was put upon the dock on Thursday, and will be launched again to-morrow. Orders have been received from Washington to fit out the Water Witch for service immediately. The Water Witch carries four guns, and is a substantial fast-sailing vessel. In this connection might be mentioned that considerable activity exists in the arsenal, on Gray's Ferry Road, in the manufacture of clothing and stores for the Quartermaster's department of the Army.--Phila.
