cteristic of the Anglo-Saxon race. Commander Sernmes, after spending a few days in Liverpool, collecting his officers and making financial arrangements, departed on the 13th of August, 1862, in the steamer Bahama, to join the 290. Commander James D. Bullock, formerly of the U. S. Navy, accompanied him, to be present at the christening of the 290, which he had contracted for and superintended while she was building. The 290 was a vessel of 900 tons burden, 230 feet in length, 32 feet beaoner, and it did not take the prize-court in the Alabama's cabin ten minutes to decide her fate. Semmes now found that his supply of coal was running out, and decided to shape his course for the Island of Martinique, where he had directed Captain Bullock to send him a coal-ship.

Bullock, was the principal agent in England for the purchase of vessels, and though the laws were violated in the transathe violation rested principally with the builder or seller. In all his business transactions, it is fair to say of Captain Bullock that the only charge brought against him was too great a fidelity to the cause he had espoused, coupled with the abi manner, as it seemed to the Federal Government, for human nature is too weak on such occasions to resist temptation. Bullock was a man of ability. He never tired in his efforts, and if he met with difficulties at one turn he tried another; and The Stonewall got to sea January 28th, 1865, having received her stores and crew from another vessel dispatched by Captain Bullock from England, at Quiberon Bay, Belle Isle, France, but, owing to defects in the rudder casing, the Stonewall put in
