Naval Forces on the Lakes.

It has been published, that the British are dismantling their vessels upon the lakes. This, we learn from good authority, is in pursuance of a mutual understanding between the American and British governments, that neither power shall retain more than two revenue cutters, of two guns each, on either lake, in service, and that six months notice shall be given by either, if an intention to augment this force. - In this arrangement the interests of the two governments are mutually promoted - and many occasions of collision and jealousy avoided. It saves a great expense to both, and is, besides, an evidence of confidence and good will which it is the interest of both to promote. [Albany Argus]

ad - the late stewart of Capt. Otty is now opening a shaving and hair dressing business... William Woodhall, Sept. 1st, 1817.
