The Iroquois was not only twice as heavy as the Sumter, inht-glass in the ship. Poor D.! if he saw one Iroquois, that night, he must have seen fifty.

We were returning to our old cruising-ground, after an interval of just one year, in a filer and faster ship, and we cared very little now about the Iroquois, aIroquois, and vessels of her class.

The fates were much more propitious as to weather, than they had been to the little Sumter, when she eluded the Iroquois. The night set in dark and rainy. We ran up our boats, lighted our fires, and when the steam was ready, got under way, as we would have done on any ordinary occasion, except only that there were no lights permitted to be seen about the ship, and that the guns were loaded and cast loose, and the crew at quarters. In the afternoon, a French naval officer had come on board, kindly bringing me a chart of the harbor, from which it appeared that I could run out in almost any direction I might c
