p.2 The Steam Boat Brockville, Capt. Brush, commences her trips to-morrow morning, between Kingston and the head of the Long Sault, making, with the Kingston, a daily line between this port and Dickenson's landing. We mentioned in the spring the general improvements that were made in the Brockville. She has been fitted out anew under Capt. Brush's superintendence, her cabins are large and elegantly furnished, her machinery was tried yesterday, and worked admirably, and the public will receive every attention to ensure their pleasure while on board.
a letter copied from Oswego Herald, in which Bill Johnson claims he is the commander of the naval forces in the patriot service and that he commanded the expedition that captured and destroyed the Sir Robert Peel; also an account from an Ogdensburgh paper in which passengers on board steamer Oswego talked with Johnson at the wood wharf near the wreck of the Peel.
