This was the bark Conrad, of Philadelphia, and although her cargo was English, she was taken possession of and quickly converted into a vessel-of-war. Three or four officers, a dozen men, and the two captured field-pieces were put on board the little clipper with a celerity that would have astonished Mr. Gideon Welles, and the new Confederate cruiser was christened the Tuscaloosa.

Without hesitation, orders were given Mr. Reynolds to board one, while Mr. French carried the other. Both were taken without resistance, though the crews aggregated twenty men, nearly equal to the crews of the two boats. The Princess Royal's cutter captured the Annie Sophia. and the Bienville's, the Pet, both supposed to be English. After getting the schooners underway and securing their crews, one was placed in charge of Boatswain's Mate, Thomas Gallyer, of the Bienville, and the other in charge of Acting-Master's Mate Johnson, with orders to proceed to the Bienville, where they subsequently arrived in safety. Mr. French then proceeded in company with the other boat to perform the duty of destroying the Wren; but, finding it impracticable (owing to the strong current and wind against him, with his reduced crews) to
