MADISON TO GALLATIN.
The command of the Lakes is obviously of the greatest importance, and has always so appeared. I am glad to find it not too late to have that of Ontario. There must have been some mistake as to the effort to obtain it. It does not appear that any application, such as is intimated, has been made to the Navy Department. Mr. Hamilton has much confidence in Lieutenant Wolsey, and says that he shall be furnished with what he wants under orders which will be issued. Affectionate respects.
We set off to-morrow morning early; the probability of high waters stopped us to-day.
