OSWEGO TAKEN.

On Thursday last the British fleet made an attack on Oswego, and attempted to land a force, but were repulsed. On Friday morning the attack was renewed; they succeeded in landing, and carried the Fort by storm the third assault, after two unsuccessful attempts to take it. - our loss was about 50. The Fort was garrisoned by the 3d regiment of artillery. They kept possession about 8 hours and then embarked. After the attack on Thursday the cannon and naval stores intended for the vessels building at Sackets Harbor, were removed back to the portage, about ten miles in the interior.
