owned in part by neutrals, Semmes took a new view of the law, and burned them, after helping himself to about forty tons of coal. A day or two after this, in the morning-watch, the look-out on the Alabama sighted a tall, fine ship standing to the southward. All sail was made in chase, and as the southwest wind, then blowing fresh, was favorable to the Alabama, she overhauled the stranger before nightfall. The prize was the Louisa Hatch. of Rockland, Maine, from Cardiff, with a cargo of Welsh coal for Port de Galle, Island of Ceylon.

He had at this time but five firemen, and fourteen deck-hands. So sconscious of his approaching fate. An inquiry into the papers of this vessel showed that her cargo was wholly owned by Americans. She had sailed full of guano from Howland's Island in the Pacific, for Cork and a market, and after having buffeted g Department in not sending proper vessels to the right localities.
