Sackets Harbor, June 10. Sir. I have seen a letter published in your paper of the 7th instant, giving "further particulars of the affair of Sandy creek," which the inclosed order of the commanding general will correct. Captain Woolsey would not wear laurels won by and belonging to Major Appling and his gallant corps. There was no artillery engaged in this affair. Captain Woolsey was not in the action; he no doubt was engaged with his boats. The plan which succeeded was Major Appling's - he can plan as well as execute.

Respectfully, (in haste)
G.E. MITCHELL, Lt. Col., Artillery
