The fleet under the command of Sir James Yeo, came to anchor off the nine mile point, on Thursday last, and sent in five small American vessels, prizes, together with property taken from the enemy valued at $6,000. The vessels we understand were taken near the Genesee river, on their way to Fort George, with provisions for the American army. On the approach of our fleet they were abandoned by their crews. The fleet sailed again early Friday morning.

Last Saturday 113 American prisoners, taken by Brig. Gen. Vincent on the 6th instant, arrived in town, and on Sunday morning they proceeded in boats for Montreal. One of the number was ascertained to be a deserter from his Majesty's 6th Regiment of foot, and was, in consequence, lodged in the jail in this place.
