DEPARTURE OF CAPT. FOWELL, R.N.
Some time this day H.M. Steamer Cherokee, Commander Fowell, will leave Kingston Harbor for Oswego. It will be for the purpose of conveying across the lake the gallant Commander and his amiable wife and family, who will be then on their way to England. In Oswego, Capt. Fowell quits the command of the Cherokee, having applied to the Admiralty for more active employment, in the approaching stirring times, and having had his request acceded to. He leaves Canada after a long Lake Service, with the esteem and good will of all who have had the pleasure of knowing him. His duties of late days have not been arduous; but we feel pursuaded that had occasion called for more energetic services, he would not have been found less wanting than when he gallantly earned his promotion during the Canadian Rebellion.
Capt. Fowell is to have no successor of the grade of Commander. The naval command of the Lakes devolves upon our old and valued friend, Lieutenant Harper of the Minos on Lake Erie; but the command of the Cherokee is the due of Capt. Fowell's First Lieutenant, Mr. Davis, who will remain at Kingston, as before. We have heard of no other change.
