ut. Jones found he could make no impression on the Monitor with his shot, he determined to run her down or board her, and for nearly an hour he maneuvered for position, but his ship was too unwieldy for that kind of work. The Monitor Lieut. Samuel Dana Greene. (executive officer of the Monitor.) danced around her like a yacht around a three-decker, pouring in her shot and endeavoring to find a vulnerable point. At last Jones thought he saw a chance of ramming the Monitor, and gave the orng through one of the slits in the pilot house, when a shell exploded in front of the opening, driving the powder into his face and eyes, rendering him blind and helpless. He turned over the command of the vessel to the executive officer, Lieut. S. D. Greene, who was in the turret, with instructions to continue the action, and the vessel was again headed towards the enemy and her fire recommenced. During the time between the fall of Lieut. Worden and the arrival of Lieut. Greene in the pilo

than on this ever — to be-remembered occasion, and it is due to the officers and men of the ill-fated Monitor that this small tribute should be paid them for standing so manfully by the historic vessel which had added some of the greenest laurels to the fame of the American Navy. The position of the vessel on that dark and tempestuous night was enough to appall the stoutest heart, but neither officers nor men quailed before the danger which seemed to cut off all hope of rescue. Lieutenant S. Dana Greene and Acting-Master L. N. Stodder stood by Commander Bankhead to the last, and Acting-Master's Mate Peter Williams, and Richard Anjier, Quartermaster, showed conduct entitling them to all praise. The quartermaster remained at his post until the vessel was sinking, and when ordered by the captain to get into the boat, said, No, sir, not until you do so. This may seem to be a long and tedious description of an event the like of which happens so often in peace or war, and frequently
