Doings of I lie " Alabama."
The Capture of the Ariel.'
(From the H. F. Aita, Jan. 10.)
One of the r.aswntrs ha.' kindly furnii-heil us
with the fijllovriri minute details of the caj ture:
I .:. 7th, Sunday About 1 I. M., hetwten
Cuha an- JIajti. (Lit. 1'0. lung. 74, e;tt eri'l of
Cuba, v'J J'uiut NVgre, six or fr.'Vin mil73 frum
the i'oirit, wiilvvarJ ja.-.-ae,) w!-ut was
at firs: feiir.riost.il to ! a Fail ship, but whi'Ji af
t rw;rls j rovel to be the Alabama, or ' ITjO."
When r-t se.-n, t!.; vessel was a mere sjc-ck on
the water ; us we nearcd her, f juni she W;l ttand
ing acrysn our bow, headed toward.-- the land
(Cuba,) with but little eail up. In the course
of about an hour, we came up nearly opposite.
When fche kiw m, the immediately tacked, and
made for u., to head in off. In the meantime,
we had not changed our course, not supposing
for a moment what bhe was. We had got a lit
tle by her before t-he came to us, about a mile or
so, she having the American flag flying, and her
ports open all the time. Our officers supposed
htr to be a L'niteI States cruiser. When she
found we were not going t etn to speak her,
she fired a blank cartridge a.n a s.gnal to heave to,
at the name time pulling down the Federal, and
running up the rebel flag.
The captain and tome of the passengers were
at dinner. He was immediately notified, ran on
uWk, saw the rebel flag, ordered all the steam on
our ship, and the U. S. Marines (I believe 120 in
number) to he mustered at once, airi all the wo
men and children on the quarter deck to go
below, intending to give fight and not give up the
hip. During this time, which could not have
been more than ten minutes, she was following
in our wake, and gaining on us. All at once she
turned nearly wU ire oft' our track, showing her
Lroadside, and lired two shots over us, as they
said afterward, to bring us to our senses. One
of the shots was a Solid 8-inch C8 pounder, and
the other a conical shaped shell. '1 he former cut
our foremast half in two, seven and a half feet
above the hurricane deck, doing no other damage.
The latter pa.-;d over, without touching us.
During this time there was irre-.it excitement. It
did not occupy so much time as in the narration
of this portion of the aflair. Such a sight I
never want t witness again Women and chil
dren crying and i raying ; men scamp ring in
every direction ; the most intrepid not knowing
what to do. Most of the passengers were loud
in d- m inding the Captain to stop the ship before
he did, as it would be utterly useless for an ordi
nary passenger ship to try to resist a man-of-war
that could with one Lroad-ide have sunk her.
Ah poon as the shots were fired her flag was low
ered and steam stopped. In fifteen minutes, or
probably less time, Lieut. Low came' aboard, ask
ed for the Captain, who was standing at the
head of the gangway, and demanded the ship's
CI-. passenger list, treasure, all of the arms
elonging to the LT. S. marine?, and the steamer
as a prize to the Confederate Government.
Before the ' 200'' fired, I was running around
the ship seeking a safe place to keep out of the
way of her pills," as we knew she was going
to give us some from the position she took. 1
was up on the hurricane deck, by the wheel
house. I saw the flash and smoke of the two
puns the next instant, !efore I could get five
feet off, one of the shots came whistling just
above my head, and struck the foremast as above
stated, and the force of which nearly knocked me
down ; in fact, I felt as though I were shot.
After getting all the arms and money, (I believe
some $l,ij00 or 2,000 in specie, the remainder
in4 green kicks,") between $10,000 and 14,
0U0 all told, they took the U. S. officers' side
arms, and paroled both them and the men. Uy
the time they had got most of these things trans
ferred, it was getting late. The women flocked
around the retcl officer, wanting to know what
he was going to do with us. He assured all that
no one should be hurt, and all their private bag
gage respected, neither would we be landed where
there would be any danger of starving.
They took our captain aboard and kept him
all night, and sent a crew to take charge of our
During Sunday night, each ship hoisted signal
light", to that they would not iose sight of each
other, and lay drifting about all night. Next
morning, Monday, Dec. 8th, the 230" signaled
to follow her, and steamed backed over the same
course we came the day lefore, intending to land
us at St. Domingo. About three P. M., they
saw what they supposed to be the Champion, at
a distance, which they were looking for. They
ordered our sails to be stripped from the masts
and thrown overloard ; then took the valves out
of our engine, and carried them on board their
vessel, leaving us perfectly helpless, with nothing
but the spanker and flying jib to keep us to the
wind. This was done in case the vessel they saw
proved to be the steamer Champion, so that she
could give chase, and we not be able to get away
from her. The vessel afterwards proved to be a
echooner, or something she did not deem necessary
We laid in this position, drifting about from 3
P. M. till 10 P. M., in sight of Cuba and Hayti,
when she sent back our valves, and ordered us to
follow her. She reversed her course, and headed
for Jamaica. Whilst drifting about during the
afternoon they threw overboard our two rifled
cannon, together with all the liquor in the bar
and other articles. Saw a large shark hovering
around the ship, trying to get at a whiskey keg
just thrown overboard proUibly he wa9 dry.
The sea was comparatively smooth, and we had a
moderate breeze during our captivity. About 9
P. M. saw a small vessel, which the "200" put
after, and fired a blank shot across her bow to
bring her to. She proved to be a Dutch craft,
and was allowed to pass on.
December 9th, arrived off Kingston a little
after dark, and lay floating about for two or three
hours. During this time the 44 200" hailed a
Dutch vessel which hadpust left Kingston. Cap
tain Semmes ordered his officers and crew who
had charge of our ship to go aboard the rebel
steamer, and take our Captain with them. In a
short time our Captain returned, saying that the
rebels had learned from the Dutch vessel that the
yellow fever was raging in Kingston, and that he
(Semmes) would not he so cruel as to land us
there. When this was known, three hearty
cheer were given. I can't say that they were
given for Semmes, hut for our good luck in get
ting off so easily. Our Captain gave bonds fr
the value of the steamer, cargo, and freight in
all $2t.000. Previous to this he oulJ not e
prevailed upon to release us.
Soon after the pirate di-appeared in the dark
ness. We lay drifting about all night off King
ston until daylight, when we headed for that
plare, making signal for a pilot. In the course
of two or three hours, three negro pilots came
aboard, and took a letter from our Captain for
the American Consul. We learned from these
pilots that there was no yellow fever at Kingston
six days before, neither was there any war vessels
there at that time. Sme of the passengers think
the San Jacinto mut have been in there, which
was the yellow fever Semmes was so considerate
as to avoid.
After delivering the letters to the pilots, we
headed for Asrinwall, where we arrived abcut 10
P. M. the 12th inst.
The following is the list of the 200"s (a'a
Alabama) officers. Some of the names may not
Le spelled correctly, as 1 had asked the officers
and crew so many questions, I concluded not to
go into details about everything : Captain, Sem
mes ; Lieutenants, Armstrong, Low. (the one who
had us in charge,) ('til, Wilson, (Master ;) Mid
shipman, Sinclair; Purser, Young.
The following is a description of the vessel, as
far as we could learn from the officers of the
Alabama, or 44 200." as she is called. (This lat
ter name she derived from the builders, being the
tiro hundred and ninttt'th ship built by Messrs.
Layard &. Co., near Liverpool, England. The
name of Alabama she got from the Southerners.)
She is a screw propeller, 1,100 tons register, bark
rigged, carries eight guns ; her smoke-stack can
be raised or lowered ; (it was lowered when we
saw her ;) her machinery is all below the water
line. The vessel is lined iuside with wood and
iron, then Coal hunkers extend all around, with
heavy plates between them and the machinery.
She "is a pretty vessel, built after the English
style, and can run 14 or 15 miles j.r hour, un-
tier tun neao oi steam, cue condenses an iuq
water they use.
Contrary to all expectation, the officers and
crew were very civil and gentlemanly to us all ;
in fact, Lieut. Low had become ouite a favorite
with the ladies and children, who did not hesitate
to ask any questions they desired, and received
civil and polite answers to all.
ITIorc ortlie " Alabama."
From the N. V. World ot 12th December. J
The schooner Alice, from Point Petre, Guada
loupe, arrived here yesterday morning, having
on board the chief officer and crew of the whale
ship Levi Starbuck, of New IJrunkswick, Capt.
Mullen, and a portion of the crew of the ship
T. 11. W'al'.s, of Doston, Capt. Lincoln. She
brought news that the two last named ships were
captured, plundered, and burned at sea ny the
CAI'TIKE or THE 44 LEVI STARBCC'K."
The Lf-ii Starbuck was the first captured.
The shin left New liedford for the Pacific Ocean
e slnp let
on the liMh ot Uctober Jast. Mie was owned by
C. U. llowland of New Bedford, and commanded
by Capt. Mullen. She has been a whaler for a
long time. Everything went on pleasantly until
daybreak on November 2d, when 5 days out, in
latitude 35 30 north, longtitude CG, when a pro
peller under canvas, flying a large American fiag,
was discovered to windward, steering in the same
direction as the Starbuck. On coming within
range, however, the steamer fired a round shot
from her pivot gun across the whaler's bow, and
run up the stars and bars. But little effort was
made by Capt. Mullen to escape, as his vessel
was a slow sailer, and it was imjossible to get
away. The steamer by this time had opened all
her port., and lowered a 12-oared boat, with a
Lieutenant and a fully armed crew. The latter
arriving alongside the whaler, the officer came
on board and requested Capt. Mullen to go on
board the steamer, and take all his papers with
him. There being no other course than to com
ply, Capt. Mullen proceeded to the Alabama,
where he met Capt. Semmes. The pirate looked
ever the papers with some interest, and then in
formed Capt. Mullen that he was a prisoner, and
that his ship was a prize to the Confederate
stermer Alabama, and told him to go on board
the Starbuck and transfer his men to the Alabama,
allowing them to bring one bag of clothing with
them. On going back Capt. Mullen found that
the pirate's boat crew had broken into the cabin
and spirit room, and helped themselves to what
ever they pleased, while the Lieutenant had ran
sacked the Captain's chest, and taken therefrom
all the money belonging to the ship and the
Captain. The crew of the whaler, including the
Captain, numbering 32, were then heavily ironed
and shipped to the Alabama, where they were
left on deck.
After dinner the pirate's crew were occupied
till night, in oledience to Semmes 's orders in
removing all provisions, clothing, nautical in
struments, and all other articles of value from
the Starbuck. This being done, and night hav
ing arrived, the ship was fired and consumed by
the flames in a very short time. The prisoners
were Bent to the lower hold for the night. When
they came on deck in the morning they found
that the pirates had appropriated all their cloth
ing which they had brought from the Starbuck.
These men remained on loard the Alabama 10
days. Upon the whole they were treated better
than they expected. They were kept in irons, but
were fed as well as the pirate's crew. The high
er officers were very civil, but some of the j-etty
officers took every occasion to add to the miseries
of their confinement by abuse and insult. Capt.
Semmes and his first Lieutenant never spoke a
word to any of the prisoners. Overtures were
made to the crew of the Starbuck to join the
pirates and participate in their captures ; but
they rejected all proj-osals, and not one of them
was bribed or frightened to enter a service
against the flag of their country. One of the
officers of the Alabama was heard to say : 44 We'll
tire them out yet. They're a noble set of fellows,
and we want them for our ship." Before the
end of the voyage he no doubt discovered that
the fact of their being a noble set of men was the
would not be tired out of their

Iho foilowjn;: article from the Charleston
Courier, a paj.r which waa much less anxious to
enter upon the tea of war than it Cutemrary,
the M'.rcvru, when the long-sown fceedd ot tn
rebellion first began to sprout in that hot-bed of
treason, shows the depth of the misery brought
upon the Southern States :
The continuance of this contest involves suffer
ing. The evils that fullow in the train of this
calamitous visitation, grow more direful with
every day. Other hearts than those now aching
with anxiety and bleeding from bereavement are
rent with grief, and the friend who sympathized
with some ufllicted one yesterday, to-day weeps
bitter tears over his own sorrow. The iron is
driven the deeper, and our burdens become more
and more heavy. And though tuore than eiht
teen months have parsed awav tince the strife was
begun, the end stems more distant than it upj.:ir-
eu to be a twelve-month since. Hope alter hope
has gone out in darkness, an J expectations we
had loudly cherished have turned out to be mis
erable delusions. So often have we been tl sap
iointed and deceived, and now our faith rejects
every promise and turns away from every sign.
Our foe is as active and determined and powerful
as ever he was, and the agent that was to compel
foreign nations to intervene and put an end to
this wicked and infamous contest, has not been
potent enough to accomplish that end.
We stand alone. Vast hosts are mustering to
repeat in stronger force and with more obstinate
courage the attempts that have been made, and
strongholds hitherto unattacked will have to
bear the most furious onslaughts the enemy, with
his wonderful resources of ingenuity and mate
rial, is capable of making. To frustrate his
well-conceived plans, to repel these terrible at
tacks, we have to depend entirely upon our
selves. The foe will do his utmost ; military ge
nius and knowledge, the boundless credit o"f the
(jJovernment, the best mechanical skill mind,
money, muscle have all combined to ensure
success. And while these tremeudous efforts are
being put forth while our homes are darkened
by the shadow of the death angel's wing and our
bosonis wrung with anguish while we are en
during greivous privations and hardship, and
our soldiers are almost naked, we stand alone.
