was going out, as the reader has seen, on board of the Talisman, to join the Taepings; twenty rifles, and half a dozen revolvers. I called the new cruiser, the Tuscaloosa, after the pretty little town of that name, on the Black Warrior River in the State of Alabama. It was meet that a child of the Alabama should be named after one of the towns of the State. The baptismal ceremony was not very elaborate. When all was ready—it being now about five P. M.—at a concerted signal, the Tuscaloosa ran up the Confederate colors, and the crew of the Alabama leaped into the rigging; and taking off their hats, gave three hearty cheers! The cheers were answered by mpelled to acknowledge it, though an ill-informed cabinet minister—the Duke of Newcastle—at first objected to it. On the same evening that we parted with the Tuscaloosa, we boarded the English bark, Mary Kendall, from Cardiff for Point de Galle, but which having met with heavy weather, and sprung a leak, was putting back to Ri
Saldanha Bay, near the Cape of Good Hope. On the morning of the 5th of August, the weather being fine, and the wind light from the south, we got under way for Table Bay. As we were steaming along the coast, we fell in with our consort, the Tuscaloosa, on her way to join us, at Saldanha Bay, in accordance with her instructions. She had been delayed by light winds and calms. She reported the capture of the enemy's ship Santee, from the East Indies, laden with rice, on British account and bound for Falmouth, in England. She had released her on ransom-bond. The Tuscaloosa being in want of supplies, I directed her to proceed to Simon Town, in Simon's Bay, to the eastward of the Cape, and there refit, and provide herself with whatever might be necessary. A little after mid-day, as we were hauling in for Cape Town, sail ho! was cried from aloft; and when we had raised the sail from the deck, we could see quite distinctly that the jaunty, newly painted craft, with the taper spars,

The Tuscaloosa had preceded me, as the reader has seen, a f, as follows:— An armed vessel named the Tuscaloosa, claiming to act under the authority of the -drunks were upon nearly all of them. The Tuscaloosa went to sea at daylight on the 14th, and we egg-shell. At length, when I supposed the Tuscaloosa and the SeaBride had reached their destinatiis was our point of rendezvous. I found the Tuscaloosa and the Sea-Bride both at anchor. I had atale of the wool still remaining on board the Tuscaloosa. This wool was to be landed at Angra Pequeñaordered Lieutenant Low, the commander of the Tuscaloosa, as soon as he should land his cargo, to balpe Town, wherein it is represented, that the Tuscaloosa and Sea-Bride had visited Ichaboe, which is f weather, and on being joined there, by the Tuscaloosa, both vessels proceeded to Angra Pequeña, onglish subject who resides at Cape Town.

recently pursued in regard to my tender, the Tuscaloosa. The reader will recollect, that I had dispas insisted by the Duke, that inasmuch as the Tuscaloosa was an uncondemned prize, she was not entitlginal owners. Under these instructions, the Tuscaloosa was seized upon her return to the Cape. Thier commission, and not in the latter. The Tuscaloosa having, then, been commissioned by me, in acnto the antecedents of the Alabama as of the Tuscaloosa. Indeed, you had a better reason for inquiriion of his recent conduct in the case of the Tuscaloosa, gave him the proper legal reply, viz.: thatrcumstances similar to those under which the Tuscaloosa visited Simon's Town, and the French Governmuestion of the commission, and supposing the Tuscaloosa to be nothing more than a prize-ship?

the way out, to see that the neutrality of French waters was not violated. My crew had turned in early, and gotten a good night's rest, and I permitted them to get their breakfasts comfortably—not turning them to until nine o'clock—before any movement was made toward getting under way, beyond lighting the fires in the furnaces. I ought to mention that Midshipman Sinclair, the son of Captain Terry Sinclair, of the Confederate Navy, whom I had sent with Low, as his first lieutenant in the Tuscaloosa, being in Paris when we arrived, had come down on the eve of the engagement— accompanied by his father—and endeavored to rejoin me, but was prevented by the French authorities. It is opportune also to state, that in view of possible contingencies, I had directed Galt, my acting paymaster, to send on shore for safekeeping, the funds of the ship, and complete pay-rolls of the crew, showing the state of the account of each officer and man. The day being Sunday, and the weather fine, a la
