e privileges of the people, without a peer among the nations of the earth? N. P. Banks. Major General Commanding. Particulars of the capture of the California steamer Ariel--interesting narrative — more items about Capt. Semmes and his crew. The narrative of the capture of the United States steamer Ariel by the Confederate States steamer Alabama, published in the Northern papers, is quite interesting. As the passengers of the Ariel were seated at dinner on Sunday, Dec. 7th, Capt. Jenes was informed that a war steamer was bearing down upon them, and, although he made light of the fact, still he left the dinner table and ascended to the deck. The account says: The war vessel was described about four miles off, sailing under the Stars and Stripes; but Captain Jones soon discovered that the build and rigging were English, and, suspecting mischief, ordered the Ariel to be put under a full head of steam, intending, if possible to leave the suspicious craft far behind.
