Capt. Henriques and the Cutter Chase.- We find by the report of Capt. J. A. Henriques of the Revenue Cutter Chase, made to Collector Root yesterday that the Cutter has cruised four hundred and fifty miles since Sunday last.

On Monday the Cutter fell in with the Schooner Cortez of Oswego, which was drifting under a signal for help. When the schooner was boarded, it was found that her center board was out of order, and could neither be dropped or raised. She was towed into Port Dalhousie.

Aug. 3d.* The schooner Medina, of Oswego was found aground in the harbor of Port Dalhousie, and was hauled off by the Chase.

Capt. Henriques; energy and efficiency will be appreciated, especially by all interested in our lake commerce.
