Attack on Oswego - We are credibly informed, that the enemy, on Saturday last, to the number of 4 or 5 sail, commenced an attack on Oswego, and after firing a few shot, which were returned with warmth from our batteries, attempted to land; but the spirited exertions and well directed fire of our cannon under Capt. Woolsey, of the Navy, (who was at that place in the schooner Growler, for the purpose of conveying to Sacket's Harbor the guns for the new ship, General Pike), together with the regulars and militia, soon compelled him to scamper on board and haul off, leaving the affrighted citizens in peaceable possession of the town, and greeting each other with the the "magnonimity of the enemy."
