Doc. 76.--the capture of the Star of the West, April 20. The expedition for the capture of the vessel composed of about 80 men, under command of Col. Van Dorn, hurriedly organized in Galveston, Tex., was made up of men from the Galveston Artillery and the Island City Rifles; the Guards are Irish, and the Rifles are a German company. The party arrived at Indianola on Wednesday, and kept all ready, apparently in no manner interested in the active preparations going on for the debarkation of the United States soldiers, which was effected by the aid of the steamship Fashion, acting as a lighter to remove the men to the Star of the West, which lay outside. About half-past 9 o'clock at night Col. Van Dorn and his band quietly got on board the Gen. Rusk, and made out to the Star of the West. When the Rusk got within hailing distance, the captain of the United States vessel sang out to know who was approaching. Van Dorn replied: The General Rusk, with troops on board. T
crowned them with the regimental cap. Still another individual placed a musket in their hands, while others furnished them with a tin plate, knife, fork, and tin cup. It was not until 2 o'clock in the afternoon that all the men were equipped, after which the companies were formed, and accompanied by the enthusiastic crowd, marched to Great Jones street, from which point the regiment were to start. For several hours there had been an assemblage of men, women, and children in Broadway, mostly Irish, which had effectually driven every vehicle from that thoroughfare. Housetops and windows were crowded with enthusiastic women, who waved their handkerchiefs incessantly to the crowd beneath. Several Irish civic societies, comprising about 2,000 persons, with waving banners — the harp of Erin kissing the Stars and Stripes--had formed in procession in Broadway, as an escort, and patiently waited for the regiment to move. About 3 o'clock the order to march was received, and the entire pro
h Carolina was the mooring ground in which it found the surest hold. The doctrine of State rights was her salvation, and the fiercer the storm raged against her — the more stoutly damagogy, immigrant preponderance, and the blasts of universal suffrage bore down on her, threatening to sweep away the vested interests of the South in her right to govern the States--the greater was her confidence, and the more resolutely she held on her cable. The North attracted hordes of ignorant Germans and Irish, and the scum of Europe, while the South repelled them. The industry, the capital of the North increased with enormous rapidity, under the influence of cheap labor and manufacturing ingenuity and enterprise, in the villages which swelled into towns, and the towns which became cities under the unenvious eye of the South. She, on the contrary, toiled on slowly, clearing forests and draining swamps to find new cotton grounds and rice-fields, for the employment of her own industry and for the
