Attack on Oswego

On the 19th June an attempt was made by the British to effect a landing at Oswego. Capt. Woolsey, with the Growler and Lady of the Lake, having a short time previous arrived there for the purpose of taking the military stores at that place to Sacket's harbor, was enabled effectually to resist the attempt and compel the enemy to abandoned the enterprise.

The valuable prize taken by the Lake of the Lake was commanded by a Lieut. and 20 men, who surrendered without firing a gun.
