The Daily Dispatch: July 19, 1862., [Electronic resource], Experience of a "Contraband" in the Yankee lines. (search)
This I immediately returned, and, on the third fire, a shell passed through and exploded her boiler. The crew at once precipitately abandoned her, and on coming up, I took possession, capturing everything on board, including public and private papers and effects, even the side arms of her officers, which I send herewith. The capture proved to be the armed propeller Teazer, commanded by Hunter Davidson, late an officer of the United States navy, and mounted one 32 pounder rifle gun of 57 cwt., and one rifle 12 pounder, with ample supplies of ammunition. We also captured a Confederate balloon, a quantity of submarine telegraph wire, and the appliances of a submarine battery. We saw aloft a small squad of cavalry, but nothing to induce the belief that a force of any account can exist in that vicinity.--The troops were probably attacked by the firing.--I returned with the prize to the anchorage. T. H. Stevens, Lieutenant Commanding. To Coro, John Rogers, officer James
