Capt. E. Chapman, of the steamer CLINTON, wishes us publicly to tender his grateful acknowledgments to Capt. Tracy, of the Revenue Cutter, at Sackets Harbor, for his timely, efficient and gentlemanly assistance in removing the CLINTON from Horse Island, where in the late boisterous weather, she was stranded: And while Capt. C. hopes he may never be called upon to reciprocate under similar circumstances, he trust she shall ever cherish the kindness remembrance for his benefactor and his noble crew for their disinterested and praiseworthy conduct on the occasion above alluded to.
