Boston, August 8

Boston August 8.

On the 4th instant, all the troops at Plattsburg left that place, to join the main body of General Izard’s Army near Odletown. When united, this army will probably consist of 8 or 9000 men. The British have an army in front of it, of equal or superior strength, and they can unite with it the reinforcements from Europe, almost immediately on their arrival. A sanguinary battle is daily expected in this quarter.-Reinforcements from different parts of the United States are continually on their march to Plattsburgh, whence they are removed to head quarters.
