Oswego. Second attempt of the enemy. Troy, May 21 - About noon, on the 17th instant the British appeared again off Oswego, with a much larger force than before, and had already got a number of men in their boats, for the purpose of landing, but the militia and regulars had collected on the shore, for their reception, in such numbers as to induce the enemy to abandon their project; after losing many men in one of their boats which happened to come near the shore, they made off, and had not been seen any more when our last accounts left there.
