We have information to the 15th inst. Capt. Gratiot of the corps of Engineers, had ascended with a detachment to the upper end of lake St. Clair to build a fort on some favorable point, for the purpose of cutting off the communication of the Indians with Mackana. The British it is believed are building boats on Lake Simcoe. A gun boat with two six pounders and 80 men has been sent from Detroit to lake Huron to ascertain the enemy’s strength and movements in that quarter.
Five pieces of Ordnance sunk in the river Thames, have been raised and taken to Detroit.Gaz.
