British soldiers Deserted.

--From the Toronto Globe, of the 20th, we learn that two of the British soldiers belonging to the 100th, or Prince of Wales regiment, tried to desert from their post at Toronto and join the Americans, and so far succeeded as to get about seven miles from land across the lake. They were pursued by the owner of the vessel they had taken to effect their escape, but not until after an exciting chase, when, in consequence of the wind lulling, their salls became useless, and a discharge of duck shot fired from a gun wounding both the soldiers, prevented them from using the cars.
