to the work. Provisions were short and forage was almost out, and the dam was promised to be finished in ten days, or the army would have to leave us. I was doubtful about the time, but had no doubt about the ultimate success, if time would only permit. General Banks placed at the disposal of Colonel Bailey all the force he required, consisting of some three thousand men and two or three hundred wagons. All the neighboring steam-mills were torn down for material, two or three regiments of Maine men were set to work felling trees, and on the second day after my arrival in Alexandria from Grand Ecore the work had fairly begun. Trees were falling with great rapidity; teams were moving in all directions, bringing in brick and stone; quarries were opened; flatboats were built to bring stone down from above; and every man seemed to be working with a vigor I have seldom seen equalled, while perhaps not one in fifty believed in the success of the undertaking. These Falls are about a mi

n for duty. It is impossible for us to understand the feeling of joy and exultation that was evinced at the capture of the first American merchant ship, unarmed and helpless. This first prize, Semmes records, was from the Black Republican State of Maine, and when her flag was hoisted — the flag which Semmes had been educated to venerate, but which now seemed the very incarnation of all that was hateful — the Sumter showed at her peak the emblem of the Confederacy, a flag which might easily hessel, and eluding their captors, finally reached their destination. On arriving off the harbor of Cienfuegos two more sail were descried from the Sumter, standing off the land. Two more American brigantines were captured — the Ben Dunning of Maine, and the Albert Adams of Massachusetts. They had left the port of Cienfuegos three hours before, and their cargoes of sugar were documented as Spanish property. Prize-crews were thrown on board, and the prize-masters directed to stand in for Ci<

If he required to visit a dock-yard to fit out his ship, a vessel came along filled with cordage, canvas and anchors.

Query, were the two ships above-named burned in neutral waters? The Alabama now proceeded to the Bay of Bengal, and on the 11th of January captured and burned the Emma Jane. of Bath. Maine. This was the last vessel burned by Captain Semmes in that quarter. Further continuance in the East Indies did not promise much profit and the Alabama finally proceeded towards the Cape of Good Hope. But even in that quarter there were no prize
