The Manlius paper states, that on the night of the 8th ult., a battle took place off Oswego, between two boats which escaped from that port, and some men on shore. Muskets were discharged at the boats, but they cleared and made sail, destined to Sackets Harbor. - When daylight appeared a boat was dispatched after them with 18 or 20 armed men, and when overtaken, the men in the boats, 8 in number, showed a disposition to defend themselves, and the pursuers retreated home. (from Canandaigua Repository).
