FROM LAKE ONTARIO

On Friday last the British fleet was seen hovering on Pulteneyville (12 miles west of Sodus) indicating its intention to effect a landing. The alarm being given,Gen. John Swift, being in the vicinity with 150 volunteers of Porter's corps, repaired to the place. Sunday afternoon the British landed several hundred men, on which our troops retired before superior numbers to the woods, followed by the enemy, and a small skirmish ensued which lasted some time, but our men, having the advantage of position, the enemy retreated to their boats after losing a number of men. Such is the statement received, and is substantially correct.
