The Shenandoah's officers.

Lieut. James J. Waddell, of North Carolina, commanded her, with Lieuts. W. C. Whittle, Virginia; John Grimball, South Carolina; Sidney S. Lee, Virginia; F. T. Chew, Missouri; D. M. Scales, Mississippi; Surgeon, Charles E. Lining, South Carolina; Master, Irvine S. Bulloch, Georgia; Paymaster, W. B. Smith, Louisiana; Assistant Surgeon, T. J. McNulty, Maryland; Passed Midshipmen, O. A. Browne and J. T. Mason, both of Virginia, and Chief Engineer, M. O'Brien, Louisiana; and three Master's Mates, three Assistant Engineers, and four Forward Officers. With a few exceptions, the officers had been in the United States navy, from which they had resigned as their respective States seceded.

As soon as we cut adrift from the Laurel the officers and men turned in together and worked side by side to get things straight, for the guns, supplies, etc., had been to some extent dumped upon our decks. But with such working material it was not many days before the guns were mounted, port holes cut, magazine built and ammunition stored—and order took the place of confusion.
