p.1 trial of Anderson for his part in burning of Peel; found not guilty. [Watertown Jeffersonian]

p.2 Pirate Doings on the River St. Clair. [Patriot July 13th]

p.3 capture of two men of Johnson's gang on Grindstone Island by Lieut. Leary, R.N. and a party of sailors; ...The boat of Johnson is 28 feet long and 4 1/2 feet wide, clinker built, painted black at the bottom, white above, with a yellow streak about six inches wide, just under the gunwale, ornamented with a red stripe above and below. The inside of the boat is red. She has one set of sweeps, and one set of short oars, so as to row either single or double handed. This boat is so light that two men can carry her with ease, and she is capable of transporting twenty men, with their arms. She had on board when taken, besides some arms, an American flag, which no doubt was intended to be used when passing British vessels, as a deception..." [Jefferson County paper]
