Sackets Harbor - From the Democratic Press - Mr. Binns - In your paper a few days since you state that two 74s were building at Sackets Harbor when information of the peace reached there. I am, however, enabled to state, that the two vessels on the stocks at that place, were intended to carry 100 guns each; - 800 carpenters were at work on them, and in 25 days both would have been in the water. The materials for their equipment being on the spot, there is no doubt Commodore Chauncey would have taken the lake on the opening of the navigation, with a force which the utmost exertions of the enemy could not have equalled. The two ships remain in the state they were when peace arrived, houses having, however, been built over them to preserve them from the weather. W.
