p.3 The schooner Nicholas Biddle, of Erie, Pa., was fired into on the 3rd June, as she was sailing down the Grand River U.C. The Captain states that threats had been made to burn to burn his vessel at the dock at Dunnville, and that he found it necessary to leave that place in consequence. Near the mouth of the river, he saw a man dressed like a British officer, who ordered a man that was with him to fire, which he did, and the ball narrowly missed the mate, who was at the helm, and passed through the sails. [N.Y. Advertiser]
