The mail brings an account of an attack being made by the British and Indians at Fort Stephenson on the 3rd of August about 1 hour before sunset...They was let to come close by the fort. Some in the ditch before the fire on them was commenced... In a very short time they thought it most prudent to retreat... The number of killed and wounded and prisoners is 250.
