Description
Full Text

SEIZURE. - The steamer CHIEF JUSTICE ROBINSON, Capt. Dix, was seized at Lewiston by the custon house officers and tied up. We understand the seizure was made in consequence of a quantity of gin having been brought over from Canada, for one of our merchants -- the quantity being smaller than is allowed under the revenue laws of 1796, and not for any intention to defraud the revenue.
