Detroit. Jan 11. 1838, Messes Editors:
      The schooner Ann, commanded by Dr. E. A. Theller, of this city, in the patriot service, against the Royalists of Upper Canada, was yesterday captured near Maiden, while cruising near that port, for observation as to the situation of the Royalists. She had on board 17 men in all. The officers were Theller, Davis of London, and Dodge of Monroe, Davis is supposed to be mortally wounded. Dodge had his left eye shot out. These were the only persons injured. A heavy wind drove the vessel nearer the shore than was desired. She was fired upon and captured. She had two cannon on board, and about 300 muskets belonging to the Patriots at Bois Blanc Island near Maiden, where the Patriots are encamped, numbering about 700.
