p.2 The Queen Charlotte, the flag ship of the British fleet captured by Commodore Perry in the ever-memorable battle on Lake Erie, was raised on Monday last, from the place where she sunk in the Bay of Presque Isle, and safely moved ashore. We understand that she is perfectly sound and in the opinion of good judges, worth more than when first launched from the stocks. This ship, with two others, the Detroit, (British) and the American brig Lawrence, were sunk for their preservation in our Bay about 20 years since. [Erie Penn. Gazette]
