The Daily Dispatch: September 15, 1862., [Electronic resource], The
Merrimac no. 2. (search)
The Merrimac no. 2. --The New York papers have a dispatch dated Norfolk, Sept. 6th, to the following effect: There is great excitement here in consequence of a report that the Merrimac No. 2 had reached the vicinity of Newport News, and had an encounter with two of our gunboats, and had driven them before her. All the shipping here has been removed to a place of safety, but no fears of anything serious are entertained, as such arrangements have been made by our naval authorities as will probably make the career of the Merrimac No. 2 of shorter duration than her former namesakes.
