p.3 A Seizure - The officers of the customs seized the British Steamboat Admiral yesterday soon after she came into port. The cause of the seizure as we are informed, is that she had on board two boxes of gin, which it is alleged, the shipper or consignee designed to smuggle. The gin we are informed, was shipped by a man in Canada belonging to this side and consigned by a label on each box to Albert Downer, of Hanford's Landing, and was put into the care of the Stewart, or as one account says of the cook who had it in his room. [Rochester Post Oct. 23rd]
