After the fall of Vicksburg, the squadron was divided into detachments to patrol the Mississippi and its tributaries, and the Marmora was assigned to the detachment of Lieutenant George M. Bache, the brave commander of the lost Cincinnati. He, in the little veteran Lexington, accompanied by the Cricket and Marmora, went up the White River where the Confederates were massing.

The next day he was attacked, captured, and sent as a prisoner to Fort Warren, in Boston Harbor. The Florida had no less than fourteen prizes to her credit, when, late in August, 1863, she entered the harbor of Brest, France, greatly in need of repairs. Here she remained until February, 1864, and became in the mean time almost a new ship. Back and forth across the Atlantic she went, preying on the merchant vessels of the United States until, on the 5th of October, Lieutenant Morris brought her into the harbor of Bahia. Commander N.
