he vessels. Every non-combatant captive he allowed to remove his private property, and for this generosity he was thanked by them. The British government, alarmed by the exploits of the Argus, sent out several cruisers after her. Just before the dawn of Aug. 14, 1813, the British brig Pelican, 18, Capt. J. F. Maples, appeared; and at six o'clock the Argus wore round and delivered a broadside upon her at grape-shot distance. The fire was immediately returned, and a round shot carried away Allen's leg. He refused to be taken from the deck; but soon becoming unconscious from loss of blood, he was taken to the cockpit, and died the next day. The men of the Argus, weakened by too free use of captured wine the night before, did not fight with their usual vigor, yet they handled the vessel admirably. Lieut. W. Howard Allen was left in chief command. Very soon the Argus became so badly injured that she began to reel. All her braces were shot away, and she could not be kept in position.

Farley, 20th Virginia Regiment; John A. Taylor, Amos Curry, E. H. Crazy, J. Midden, of the Lee Battery; W. H. Allen, D. O. Young, 1st Georgia Regiment; Thomas Jauntry, 23d Virginia; Janus Lane, 27th Virginia. A Baltimore schooner, the Florida, Captain Terrell, from Saint Domingo, and bound to Baltimore, with a cargo of mahogany, &c., was abandoned at sea and sunk on Friday last, about thirty miles North of Cape Hatteras. She had on board a considerable amount of specie, said to have been $15,000, which was lost with the vessel and cargo. The captain, owner, and crew were saved in the boats, and
