Extract of a letter from Maj. Gen. Lewis, to the Secretary of War, dated Sacket's harbor, July 20.

"Our fleet has gone out of the inner harbor, and appearances are in favor of going to sea in 48 hours at farthest.

"A little expedition of volunteers from the country, to which by the advice of Commodore Chauncey I lent 50 soldiers, sailed from hence 2 days since on board of two small row boats, with a six pounder each to the head of the St. Lawrence, where they captured a fine gun boat mounting a 24 pounder, 14 batteaux loaded, 4 officers and 61 men. Two of our schooners have gone out to convoy them in. The prisoners have been landed, and are coming on under charge of a detachment of dragoons."
