From the Herkimer American, Sept. 22.
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
Sackets Harbor, Sept. 18, 1814.
Our four ships arrived in this port yesterday afternoon; and the two brigs Jones and Jefferson, arrived last evening - having left the head of the Lake in consequence of an uncommon gale of wind they experienced from the N.E. on Monday and Tuesday last, in which the Jefferson, Capt. Ridgley, was obliged to throw overboard ten of her guns, and was, I understand, someone injured in her spars.
The Jones, Capt. Woolsey, succeeded in getting clear without any loss. The brig Sylph, and schrs. Lady of the Lake and Conquest are yet out, and as the wind is blowing very severely from the westward this day, I am afraid they will fare hard, unless they are in some harbor. Several small vessels have dragged their anchors, even in this harbor, since morning.
The enemy's new ship at Kingston, had got her masts in before our ships left that station.
