nvinced that the hospitals were dangerously, if not fatally, exposed. I therefore sent two of my aids--Capt. Hart and Lieut. Blake--to Brig.-General Hancock, to request of him that he would be so good as to authorize me to take all that was left of so numerous as to require the assistance of all those who were unhurt. Even while I was waiting for Captain Hart and Lieut. Blake to return, several discharges of shell and Minie balls broke over and through the hospitals of the Sixty-ninth, the Sixty-third, the Eighty-eighth, and the buildings and fences which immediately adjoined them. Capt. Hart and Lieut. Blake, on their return, having given me to understand that I had a conditional authorization from Brig.-Gen. Hancock to transfer the diligent, and indefatigable in the discharge of his duties as Acting Assistant Adjutant-General of the brigade. Lieutenant John Blake, of the same regiment, displayed courage and soldiership of the highest order, but in doing so only continued to

The commander of the John Adams, Capt. C. Morris, was warned of his danger, and he notified Gen. John Blake, commander of the 10th division of Massachusetts militia. The British force consisted of ted forward cautiously, in a dense fog, to join the other invaders, with a vanguard of riflemen. Blake had sent a body of militia to confront the invaders. These were suddenly attacked, when they broke and fled in every direction, leaving Blake and his officers alone. This panic imperilled the force that was to defend the John Adams, when Morris, seeing no other means for the salvation of his ked and the vessel set on fire. This was done, and the men under Morris fled northward. With Blake and his officers and a bare remnant of his command, Morris retreated to Bangor, and thence made urs, quartered on the inhabitants, who were compelled to sign a parole as prisoners of war.

unched from two to fourteen years, and they were able to do as they did because the men in the conning-towers, the gun-turrets, and the engine-rooms had through long years of practice at sea learned how to do their duty. Its early stages. Our present navy was begun in 1882. At that period our navy consisted of a collection of antiquated wooden ships, already almost as out of place against modern war-vessels as the galleys of Alcibiades and Hamilcar —certainly as the ships of Tromp and Blake. Nor at that time did we have men fit to handle a modern man-of-war.

And they and all men see now, and ever more clearly will see, that in the fight off Santiago another great fact had reasserted itself for the consideration of the world.

It is the spirit of the Jomsberg Viking, who, alone and wounded, springs into the sea from his sinking boat with defiance on Santiago from the Harbor. his lips. It comes down through Grenville and Drake and Howard and Blake, on to Perry and Macdonough and Hull and Decatur.
