At half past nine, a volunteer company, headed
by a cadet from West Foiut, a splendid fellow,
went down to Grand Island to plant the stiipes
and st-rrs, and maintain lire American frontier
against further aggressions.

„ ; On Friday, the 2’Jtli of December, an attack
r j was expected upon Navy Island, from the Bnt
-1(i ish shore. Many of our citizens had cougrega
-1 ted at Sehlosser, about 20 m les north from Buf
rc i lain, as affording an excellent view of Hie scene.
Foe u-saiill did not take place, and the company

The owner of ibis boat had sent her to Schlos
ser to ply as a ferry boat, between it and Navy
Island. They made no charge lor transporting
vohm'eers, but exacted heavy loll* of all other*,
curiosity or business called to make the
* trip across. The Caroline was a poor alfa.r, small
and of little value.
Col. McNabb, hearing of this, despatched .00
men to the landing place of .Vavjt Island with
orders to secure the boat, and pul it hors du com
; bat. Not finding the object of their search, they
I extended their inquiries to Sublessor, in violation
of the laws of neutrality.
About 3 o’clock, A. M., on Saturday, the 30th
ult. this parly of troops made their descent upon
the Caroline. They commenced an indiscrimi
nate slaughter of the persons on board, and suc
ceeded in killing 12. The rest fortunately escaped.
One of the United States runners was shot
through! the head, .on the wharf, in the act of
escaping. Three gentlemen ol high respectabili
ty were slightly wounded. ’The boat was then
cut from her moorings, and hauled of! into the
stream, where, taking thecunenl she was preci
pitated over the falls, with nearly all the dead bo
dies on board. You will remembet that Schlosser
is the lowest landing point on the American side,
above the falls.
During the whale of Saturday the utmost ex
citement prevailed in Buffalo. Knots of men
were to ho seen in every direction talking over
the ma'ter and swearing revenge. The military
were called out for tho purpose of preventing the
i uproar from breaking out into retaliatory mea
• sure*. Before night set in, the general feeling
! had subsided to a determination not to violate the
treaty of peace on our part.
