es, and bid them stand And feel the red lightning from her gallant band. See, her proud banner flatters in the sky, And from her sides the murderous missiles fly. Down, down the "Cumberland" sinks beneath the wave, Engulfed forever in a watery grave. Around she turns, and on the "Congress" rains Herred-hot thunder, scattering limbs and brains; Whilst burning balls, the war-gods favorite lyre, Wrant the proud ship in angry flames of fire. Shout after shout rose from her gallant crew As on for other prey the "monster" flaw. Now, she revolves and pours a burning tide Of living flame into the foeman's side. But darkness spread her mantle on the sky, And hostile flags are seen no more on high. All honor to the gallant band that won This brilliant victory neath a Southern sun. Long may they live, the masters of the sin, The honored champions of the brave and free. Norfolk, Va, March 18 1862

As on it swept, jarl like a "thing of lite," Panting to mingle in the deadly strife, Two war sh
