Erie, Pa. Sept.2.
      Arrived on Wednesday The NIAGARA, Com. Sinclair, from Detroit. The LAWRENCE passed here on the same day on her way to Fort Erie. After the attack on Mackinaw Com. Sinclair proceeded in search of the schooner NANCY, and found her at anchor under the guns of a block house, at the mouth of the Nottawasaga River, at the eastern extremity of Lake Huron. A fire was commenced on the enemy, and returned from two 24 pounders, that had been taken from the schooner and mounted on the Block house; in a short time both were blown up. The guns were brought away.
