On Friday night, the first instant, a schooner of 12 guns was burnt at Presqu'ile, by a detachment of about 25 sailors in two gigs, from our fleet at Sackets Harbor, under the command of Lieut. Gregory. The detachment arrived at Oswego on Sunday. The schooner was on the stocks, and nearly ready to be launched. The sails and rigging were also burnt, together with a store house.

Adm. Sir Isaac Coffin arrived at Quebec on the 20th, in the ship Euretta, which left England May 2. [It is probable he is to command the Ontario squadron, in the room of Com. Yeo, who may be second in command, or be transferred to the fleet on Lake Champlain.]
