The Erie Observer of the 24th inst. says:

To the immense number of vessels navigating Lake Erie, is about to be added a class rendered famous in former days, and the sight of which, engaged in commerce, will be calculated to awaken the patriotick feeling of every American beholder. The vessels composing a part of the glorious fleet of the victor Perry, with a number of the prizes taken from the enemy in the every memorable battle of the 10th of Sept. 1813, which have been since the close of the late war, sunk in this harbour, have lately become the property of Messrs. Miles & Leach of this place, and are to be fitted up for the lake trade. the Queen Charlotte, (a prize) was raised on Monday last. Her timbers found to be perfectly sound. She is to be rigged for a brig this season. The Lawrence, (American) and the Detroit (a prize) are to be raised immediately--the former intended to be converted into a Steam Boat.
