Josiah Vavasseur & Co., of London, take credit to themselves, of course through the columns of the London Times, for providing the steel shot for the rebels by which the Keokuk was sunk. A statement published in England to the effect that “practical artillerists have not been using spherical steel shot” put this house of Vavasseur & Co. upon its defence, and as a proof that artillerists do use such implements of war, they say they “have reason to believe that the same shot made by us (Vavasseur & Co.) were used by the confederates in the first attack of the monitors upon Charleston, in which action the Keokuk was so severely handled.” Vavasseur & Co., like good “neutral” Englishmen as they are, rather pride themselves on the efficient aid thus rendered to the rebels.
