Gain and Bedel, and about 300 U.S. Infantry from Sacket's Harbor, arrived here, and it was given out that other troops were on the march which would make the whole force amount to between 2 and 3,000 men - who were to proceed to Niagara to commence military operations against the enemy. The troops already arrived remaining until early yesterday morning, when they commenced a retrograde march. Gen. Brown returned east the day following his arrival.
