Extract of a letter dated Sacket's Harbor, Jan. 11.
"There are near six hundred ship carpenters at this post, busily engaged in getting timber ready to build two seventy-fours and a frigate of the first class. Although surrounded by spies, our government have reason to congratulate themselves on this one very essential point - that the whole of the materials for the increased naval force to be established on this lake have been contracted for, and ready for delivery these six weeks.
