se, never before heard of in engineering, we got both engines working and came in port flying. Too much praise cannot be given to Mr. Marsland. It was a great piece of work, and if it had not been for him we would not have been able to participate in the glorious battle that has resulted in a splendid naval victory. To make a long story short, he is perfect master of his profession in my opinion, second to none, and so considered by all on board the Unadilla. On the morning of the 7th November at nine o'clock the signal was made from the flag-ship to get under way, a signal we had been watching anxiously for some time. I never saw an anchor come up livelier in my life. We then started up the bay in the following order: Wabash, Susquehanna, Seminole, Mohican, Pawnee, Unadilla, Ottawa, Seneca, Pembina, Augusta, Bienville, Curlew, Penguin, Pocahontas, Isaac Smith, and R. B. Forbes. The two batteries are called Forts Beauregard and Walker. The former on the right, on Bay Point,
espatch by Commander Taylor I confined myself to the report of the movements of this ship and the facts connected with the capture of Messrs. Mason, Slidell, Eustis, and McFarland, as I intended to write you particularly relative to the reasons which induced my action in making them prisoners. When I heard at Cienfuegos, on the south side of Cuba, of these commissioners having landed on the Island of Cuba, and that they were at the Havana, and would depart in the English steamer of the 7th November, I determined to intercept them, and carefully examined all the authorities on international law to which I had access, viz.: Kent, Wheaton, and Vattel, beside various decisions of Sir William Scott, and other judges of the admiralty court of Great Britain, which bore upon the rights of neutrals and their responsibilities. The Governments of Great Britain, France, and Spain, having issued proclamations that the Confederate States were viewed, considered, and treated as belligerents, an

In many places, one would think that he viewed the ruins of some mighty castle on the mountain tops, as the rocks would rise in walls and spires high above the particolored forest. A. J. P. The Louisville Journal published the following details, compiled from the reports of General Nelson and Colonel Sill: On the 7th November General Nelson despatched Colonel Sill with his own regiment, the Ohio Thirty-third, and the light battalion under Major Hart, Kentucky Volunteers, composed of a flank company from each of the regiments, the Second, Thirty-third, and Fifty-ninth O. V. U. S. A., and two Kentucky companies, together with one hundred and forty-two mounted men, under command of Colonel Metcalf, Kentucky Volunteers, made up of men mounted from the wagon teams, and thirty-six gentlemen volunteers, under Colonel
ities as to the disposal of his prisoners, when it was decided that they should be placed in the hands of the United States Marshal. After an examination on board, the officers and crew were taken to the shore and placed in the county jail, where, properly guarded, they will remain until their trial. Captain Gilbert Hay, the master, was born in Scotland, was naturalized in Charleston, where he has lived twenty-eight years. He testified that the Beauregard sailed from Charleston on the 7th of November. She was commissioned by Jefferson Davis on the 14th of October to act as a private armed vessel in the service of the Confederate States on the high seas against the United States of America, their ships, vessels, goods and effects, and those of their citizens, during the prevailing war. The Beauregard saw no vessel previous to her capture, and did not fire a gun after leaving port, not even for practice. Captain Hay says the vessel is owned by a stock company, and that her bills,
We cannot find out how many of them there were. Some say several jumped overboard and swam on shore, and others were knocked overboard. The rebels have since taken the Rusk up to the town, and it is well that they did. This ship draws so much water that she cannot get near the batteries. Frigates are better in dock at New York than down here. They can't get within four miles of the shores. Another account. U. S. Frigate Santer, November 20, 1861. At midnight, on the 7th of November, two volunteer crews, with twenty men in each boat, under the command of Lieut. James E. Jouett, left this ship for the purpose of surprising and capturing the man-of-war General Rusk, lying under a large fort, and cut off from us by three others. The second launch was in command of Lieut. J. G. Mitchell and Master's Mate Adams. When the boats shoved off at midnight, every man felt that it was the last time we should meet, and nearly every one had written, as he thought, his last lett
