p.3 A skirmish took place not long since in the river opposite to Elizabethtown, between a small American schooner and a party of Government Boats, with ammunition, on their way to this place. Several shots were exchanged, but we cannot ascertain that any material damage was done on either side.

New York, July 17th - Intelligence has just been received that the United States brig of war Oneida, of 18 guns, has captured after a desperate action of 4 hours, the British Ship of war Royal George, of 22 guns, on Lake Ontario, and has sent her into Sacket's Harbor. [Morning Star]

(Ed. However correct the above account may appear to the good inhabitants on the American shore, we can assure them that His Majesty's ship Royal George is in good repair, well manned, and sailed this morning on a cruise from this port.)
