2. Captain Semmes, C. S. A. N. June 19, 1864. Out of Cherbourg harbor, one clear Sunday morning, the cavalier, Captain Semmes, with his cap a-cock, Sailed from the friendly Frenchman's dock. Gaily along the rebel came, Under the flag of the cross of shame; Knight of the handcuff and bloody lash, He twirled the point of his red moustache, And swore, in English not over nice, To sink our Yankee scum in a trice, Or burn our ship, as the thing might be, Where the eyes of Cherbourg all should see. “Heigh-ho! you don't say so!” Whispered his friend, little Jean Crapeau. Semmes has been a wolf of the deep For many a day to harmless sheep; Ships he scuttled and robbed and burned, Watches pilfered and pockets turned; And all his plunder, bonds, and gold, He left for his Gallic friend to hold. A little over prudent was he For a cavalier of high degree; And Raphael Semmes don't sound, indeed, As if it came of the purple seed; But all the blood in his veins was blue, And his clay was porcelai

Had I been Winslow, I say to you, As the sea is green, the sky is blue, Through the Deerhound I'd have sent a shot, And John might have liked the thing or not I Heigh-ho! come soon or slow, In the end we are bound to have a blow. What said the Frenchman from his hill, After the cannon-shots were still? What said the Briton from his deck, Gazing down on the sunken wreck? Something was said of guns like mortars, And something of smooth-bores at close quarters; Chain armor furnished a word or two, But the end of all was both looked blue. They sighed again o'er the “Great Contention,” But never hinted at “Intervention.” One thing they wished, which they dared not say, “If the fight had but gone the other way! Heigh-ho! I told you so! Oh! Semmes was a sorry fool to go!” George H. Bo

tretched forth the flag of his outraged land. In vain he hoisted his sails to flee; For each foot he sailed, his foe sailed three. Heigh-ho! “Why, here's a blow,” Said Semmes, as he hauled his flag below. Well was it for the cavalier, That brother Bull was lying near. His vessel with a haughty curl Turned up her nose, and in the whirl Of the white sea, stern foremost, tore As if in scorn of the crew she bore. Then the thrifty Briton launched his boat, To pick up aught that might be afloat, And aing behind his fame and sword; And then the Deerhound stole away, Lest Winslow's guns might have a say; Landed him in Southampton town, Where heroes like him have had renown, Ever since Lawrence, Perry, and Hull, Took hold of the horns of great John Bull. Had I been Winslow, I say to you, As the sea is green, the sky is blue, Through the Deerhound I'd have sent a shot, And John might have liked the thing or not I Heigh-ho! come soon or slow, In the end we are bound to have a blow.
