CANNON FOUND IN RIVER.

Ogdensburg, Oct. 31st - A dredge of the Daly & Hannan fleet dug a cannon up from the bottom of the harbor here. It was four feet, six inches in length, with two inch bore and weighed 350 pounds. It bore the date of 1809 and also the figures 104, with a large letter P under the cipher. There was no other inscription and there is much speculation among the marine men who viewed it, as to its history.
