The Daily Dispatch: December 21, 1861., [Electronic resource], Vessel beached near Fernandina and fired by the enemy. (search)
Vessel beached near Fernandina and fired by the enemy. --A dispatch from Fernandina, Fla., dated December 15, says: This morning an unknown vessel was seen making for the bar. The blockaders attempted to cut her off. Finding no salvation, the vessel beached herself on Cumberland Island, about six miles north of this bar.--The crew took to their boats, and got safely ashore. The enemy fired some four or six shots at her while aground. The enemy's launches then boarded the vessel, and after an unsuccessful attempt to get her off they fired her, and returned to the blockade.
