Intelligence is received from Mackinac,
via Matchedache and York, stating that the
eneipy had left two armed schooners to
blockade the place, until the winter should
set in, and then retire. Col. M’Dewali it is

capturing them. This was done in the
night by a combined attack of soldiers and
Indians, in canoes and boats. We hope
this news may prove correct.

« La Cloch, Sept. 17, 1814.
My dear sir—I have only time to say,
that I am thus far on my way to Montreal,
with part of the crews of the blockading
squadron, whom we have taken by board-
ing ; say two large schooners. and one car-
tel that we have detained at Mackinac till
all danger is over. I will be down by York,
as I am to forward the canocs that put
back, and deliver the prisoners, the crews
of the two vessels, at York.
