Semmes assembled them and several of their officers and their respective crews, and telling them he was going to send them on shore, said: “The American Consul would take care of them.” Capt. Hoxie then requested that the one hundred and fifty dollars he had intrusted to the purser of the Sumter might be given up to him; but Capt. Semmes said: “Oh!

The steward of the Eben Dodge, who was ill at the time of the capture, died on board the Sumter.
