The steamer FRANKLIN was seized by the Canadian authorities at Round Island, in the Straits of St. Mary, for an alleged violation of the revenue laws. She landed provisions and stores for the inhabitants of that island, which has heretofore been considered American soil. She was promptly bonded by her owner and proceeded on her way to the Sault.
