Misstatement corrected.--There can be nothing more gratifying than to use the means in our power to do away the effe[c]t of any mis-statements we may make, and more particularly where an individual's character or interest would be effected.

In our paper of the 8th inst., in an art[i]cle headed "Lake Disasters" the following sentence was inserted:

--by the report of some passengers who landed here from on board the Steam Boat Henry Clay, who stated that they saw a dead body floating between the Island and Sandusky Bay; but that Capt. Norton made som groundless excuse for not taking it up.

We have received the most positive assurances from Capt. N. through a gentleman of this village, that the above in incorrect; and that, at the time he passed the body the wind was blowing a gale; that his passengers, except two or three were below sick; that he had come out of Sandusky Bay, and passed cunningham's Island, and from the state of the weather at the time, did not expect to stop at this place; that these were his reasons for not taking up the body.

Those publishers who copied the other article, will please notice this.
