Wreck of the Sumter.
--We regret to chronicle the wreck of that gallant Confederate vessel, the Smater
She has been a scourge of the seas to Northera commerce, and her Commander
is one of the most enterprising and heroic of seamen.
To be wrecked, however, was a better fate than falling into the hands of the Lincoln
Old ocean, more merciful than the Washington
tyrant, spared the brave officers and crew, and all reached land in safety.
Our enemies may rejoice over the wreck of the Sumter
, but the spirit that set her afloat is not shipwrecked, and will never cease sending forth Sumters upon the waves as long as the forest a furnish timber and the billows roll.
