Watertown, (N.Y.) July 20.

Week before last, a floating battery in the form of an Octagon, constructed under the superintendence of Mr. Richard Cooper, of Cooperstown, was stove to pieces on its way from Oswego to Sacket's Harbor. 15 men were navigating it, two of whom were drowned, and the remainder considerably injured. It was calculated to carry 16 heavy guns, two only were mounted, and were both lost; we have heard since that they are found, and gotten out of the water.
