From the Saut de Ste. Marie.

Extract from a letter, dated Saut de St. Marie, 13th July 1822, from a gentleman now at that place, to one in this city.

"We reached this place on the 6th inst., after a charming passage through the lakes. The Steam Boat only came up to the foot of the canoe channel, finding, from information, that it would be impracticable to pass the bar in lake George, upon which, at this time, there is only 5 feet 10 inches water. Anticipating this difficulty, three N. West boats had been procured of the Fur Company at Mackinac, and towed up by the Superior, In these Col. Brady embarked the two light companies of the detachment at 9 o'clock on the 6th ,and we landed at the Sat at 3 in the afternoon. A great number of Indians had collected on our arrival, and received us with a salute in their way. The last of the baggage and troops did not arrive until the 8th.
