Another Pirate Expedition? - The steam boat General Macomb was stolen from a wharf at Detroit, within a day or two, by the pirates who have for a long time infested that place, and are supposed to have proceeded up the lakes, with the intention, it is thought, of landing somewhere in the vicinity of Goderich. Should they again fall into the hands of our militia, we hope they will give them a does of just that will last them to all eternity.

Sandwich Herald, June 26 This is doubtless the boat which caused the vagabounds which have lately landed in the neighbourhood of Port Sarnia and have penetrated to within 30 miles of London. They amount, it is believed, to some five or six hundred. The whole of the 32d regiment is in London and the vicinity in addition to which the loyal militia were pouring in with all expedition by the last accounts. By this time, the 34th regiment will have joined them if their march be not stopped by news of the capture or dispersion of the pirates. - Tor. Pat.
