The officers who made themselves particularly active in the performance of blockading duties, and who aided in the destruction of these steamers, were Commanders Pierce Crosby and William F. Spicer, and Lieutenant-Commander Francis A. Roe. Now and then, amid these exciting scenes, the indomitable Lieutenant Cushing came forward with some remarkable feat, more daring than important. Cushing was brave to recklessness, not seeming to care for danger, and his superior officers rather encouraged his wild adventures. In the month of February an idea struck Cushing that he would make an expedition to Cape Fear River, and capture the Confederate commander at Smithville, where ther

above New Orleans on April 24th, 1865, running at full speed, and passed down the river. She was flying the United States flag, and had a torpedo on a pole projecting from the bow. Every one who saw the Webb took her for an army transport, but, being finally recognized by some one, she received two shot in her hull, which, however, did no damage. The Hollyhock, Lieutenant-Commanander Bancroft Gherardi; the Florida, Acting-Volunteer-Lieutenant-Commander Wm. Budd; the Quaker City, Commander Wm. F. Spicer, and the Ossipee, Commander Wm. E. LeRoy, got underway as soon as they could get up steam and went in pursuit of the Webb, the Hollyhock far in the lead.

The chances for her escape being thus cut off, the Webb was headed for the left bank of the river and run ashore, and was set on fire by her commander, Edward G. Reed, formerly of the United S
