From the New York Heruld, lath.
We are intlelitcd (0 Captain Hagar,lato
of the ship Brilliant, for additional par
ticulars relative to tho rebel privateer
Alabama. He says that the discipline
on board the l'irate is very Black, moto
like that of a privateer where it is
every man for himself than a regular
man-of-war. All the plunder taken
from any vessel they may captut olias to
bo accoun'cd for to the Confederate Gov
ernment hereafter, and shared as prize
money. Anything wanted by the crew
is taken, but a value is placed upon it
and the amount charged against, their
wages. In this manner tho crew are in
a measure paid.
Nearly all the cabin furniture of tho
lirilliant, being new and handsome, was
taken for tho decoration of the cabin and
ward-room of tho pirate, and her mid
shipmen ransacked tho linen closet,
taking sheets, pillow-cases, towels, and
anything else they fancied, stulTiing
them into their clothing, so that when
they went over the side they presented
more the appearance of feather beds with
strings tied round tho middles than
human beings. These were all private
stealings, no notice being taken of the
theft, when the arrived on board their
own snip. uapr. . uagar says mat ine
only ollicer on board the pirate that
treated them humanely was Mr. Kerr,
tho .First Lieutenant. He appeared to
have some pity for their situation, while
the others behaved as thieves and brutes,
and appeared to care only for themselves
and how much they could make from the
When Captain llajjer was transferred
to the Alabama, and ordered to be put
irons, ho remonstrated with Mr. Arm
strong, tho ollicer seeing tjie order en
forrod, in the following language: lie
said, "It is a very sjngular thing that
you should confine these men in irons
and hold mo as a close prisoner, when
we were born and brought up under the
same flag and government. If I were to
meet you in distress on the high seas, or
anywhere else, I would not only not treat
you in this manner, but would, if you
required it, share the last crust of bread
with you, if 1 found you to bo in want
To these kind remarks Armstrong re
plied " We arc nothing to each other as
countrymen. iheiNoitn anil noutli are
now distinct races, with no feelings or
interests in common."
It was evidently fine fun for these ras
cals to plunder and destroy. They knew
full well that no other uso could bo made
of tho property, and they accordingly
went at and continued tho work more as
an arausemeut than a duty. It is evi
dently the purpose of the pirate Semmes
to allow his crew to pillage and destroy
as much as they wish. He no doubt
shipped a crew on tho promise tliafthoy
should have perfect liberty in this re
spect; and he would keep them together
and collect more until his number is full
by carrying out his promises that they
may whenever a prize is taken, steal,
burn, and destroy to their hearts' con
tent, lien who have no love for the Hag
they sail tinder, and no interest in Ihe
country they light for, will not enter or
contiuuo in such sewice unless stronger
inducements than so much per month
arc offered them, especially when tho
monthly pay is uncertain.
Captain llagar reports the majority of
tho Alabama's crew to be Knglislimeu.
These fellows will remain true lo Seinmcs
so long as they can steal, but uo longer.
They will remain true so long as the
service is profitable. When it is not they
w ill desert their rebel ollieers, and Semmes
will have to oiler new inducements to
obtain another crew.
Now that hnglaiKl lias permitted a
rebel cruiser to bo fitted out in Liver
pool, and another one the Oreto in
Nassau, and it is openly announced that
more are building for the same purpose in
English ports, without any interference
on the part of Her Majesty's government,
it will be very natural to suppose that
other outrages and brearliesol neutrality
will be allowed. It will not cause much
astonishment to leant that Semitic hail
sent his prizes into Ltiiidoii or Liverpool ;
that they had beiii mid, and the money
deposited with English bankers lo the
credit of the Confederate overuuteiit and
the piratical t apd-is. Kpljnil 111 lit as
well permit one tin the other, and lioin
present prospects she moil will.
Cant, lunar is under the iiiiine.itiii'
that arrangements have been pn letted by
Kemmes to have cargoes of coat at certain
ports as ho may want it. lie will prob
ably rtmaiii near his last reported posi
tion until he thinks it risky; then seek
some new locality where our cruisers are
not, and in the truck of onr merchant
vessels, and near the port where his coal
is deposited. Ho can then sin':, burn and
destroy million" rf property l.ifitei.iJ
(han-e of pesiiion H known, and in this
manner may visit all pons cf tho globe
without Ihe shyhtest risk of rapture.
His powder, shot and shell w ill be sent
liim in tho same manner. One in three
months ho can run into 0113- English port,
recruit his men and coal publicly, and
find out the next best cruisine cround.
Ho may soon be heard of atjthc Cape of

Good Hope, cutting oif our Fa India-
men, or he may turn tip at Singapore or
Hong Ivong. He can no where he pleases,
and when he pleases, knowing full well
that when in an English port friends will
always be found.
The ollieers of the Alabama evidently
consider themselves on a long cruise;
they know tho powers of their vessel, and
are also posted as to I he vessels now com
prising the United States navy, and being
thorough seamen, understand how to
avoid the dangers of capture, and how to
do our commerce the greatest amount of I
damage. It is evidently not their inten
tion to fight, unless driven to it by being
caught in a tight place. Their object is
plunder and destruction only; and it
l hey arc successful in future as they
have been, the record of the cruise of
the Alabama, so far as the value of
property destroyed is concerned, will be
one of the most terrible in history.
Who knows but he may determine to
dash into one of our Northern .ports and
destroy all the shipping therein? lie
could do so and be oil' again before a vessel
could be sent after him. Semmes is n
man of that character that ho would not
shrink at any exploit of this description.
On the contrary, it would delight him,
and when we next hear of the Alabama
ft may be on a raid such as above
If the Alabama could bo cornered in an
English port she should ie taken and
destroyed. It would be no more a vio
lation of neutrality to do so than it was
to permit her building and titling out in
Liverpool. Our naval commanders should
be instructed to take her it possible, no
matter were found, and if in an English
port so much the better.
The Alabama is no doubt, from all tho
reports we have, one of tho fastest screw
steamers ever built in England in all
probability superior to the Himalaya
We have nothing in our service that can
compare with her. The Iroquis steam
loop-of-war is considered the best we
have, and yet her speed, under the most
favorable circumstances, never exceeds
thirteen knots, and under canvass alone
much less. Tho Alabama, under sail and
off the wind, can go thirteen, under steam
alone fifteen, and with both possibly
sixten or seventeen knots iter hour. Ihese
estimates of speed aro based, of tKiurse,
upon the water being comparativly
smooth. If these reports of her are true
and there is no reason to doubt them
she is destined to give use any amount of
trouble before being captured or des
The Terrible Battle of Iuka.
The fighting at tho battlo of Iuka was
terrific. A letter says:
The rebels charged and took the Elev
cnth Ohio liattery four different times,
and it was as often retaken by our boys.
Every horse la the battery was killed,
and there wero only eight men left
unwoundod and fit for dutv. Everv
ollicer was wounded, and one Lieutenant
killed. It was supported by the rifth,
Iowa, who fought like tigers their first
battle, too they met the rebels every
time they charged, and fought them at
close quarters. The desperation of the
enemy was astonishing. Several of them
endeavored to tear our colors from the
hands of tho men by main strength, and
either perished in the attempt or were
In one spot next morning, I counted
seventeen rebels lying dead around one
of their Colonels. Sixteen teet square
would cover the whole space where they
died with Iheir commander, l'.etween
two caissons of tho Eleventh Ohio bat
tery lay sixteen dead horses, and tho bat
tery lost ninety-three in thn fight. In
one place lay a rebel and a Union soldier,
the Unionist shot through the breast, and
in fallinz he had plunged his bayonet
into tho breast of the man who shot him,
and they fell together, tho rebel clutching
our boy by the throat. They lay in this
riosition on the field next morning, and
it was with did'culty they were separat
ed. Wounded and dead lay in all direc
lions duritiK the whole of the day suc
ceeding tbe battle, it being impossible to
remove them sooner. Trite left his dead

Napoleon and llexico-The Empe
ror's Heal Designs.
The fact of airarniy of eighty thousand
men being ready to sail at a moment's
notice from France, and all preparations
of transports, provisions and munitions
of war being mud, is taken bi be evi-
GeLi e .Iiat tins large force is destined for
Mexico. That is incredible. Half the
number of troops would be suflicient for
the purpose indicated. It is nrtMicd by
others that this army is destined to ope
rate against tho L'nted Stales, tinder co
ver of the war in Mexico, and that it
means intervention in our civil war, with
a view to the aid of the Southern Confed-
er.vy. This is etpuMy absurd. His
- : i.-il 1 ... 1 ! t ... 1 .
eighty thouwid men, which it Would cost
liim such an enormous eutii to transport
to this country and supply with food
while here, would be of no avail against
the numbers we could bring against them
and would not. turn the scale araiust tbe
North. If Napoleon should intcrveno in
our quarrel he could render the most ser
vice to tho South at a small sxpense by
breaking the blockade, and by sending to
the rebels ammunition, arms, largo and
small; iron-clad vessels, clothing, shoes,
medicines, and other things so deeply
needed by tho insurgent army,
The 80,000 men, therefore, are intended
for another destination than Mexico or
any part of this continent. He may send
to Mexico a few more troops, and threaten
her with overwhelming numbers ; but his
object is to obtain a treaty from her and
to make her pay the claims due tolrench
citizens. He will send enough of troops
torescue the first expedition from its
perilous condition, and, having: secured
his object in making war, he will order
tho whole force to return. His letter to
General Lorenccz, which we published on
lhursuay in our Mexican news, confirms
this view of Iho case. He says:
It is against my interest, my origin, and
my principles to impose any government
whatever upon tne Mexican people. Let
it be chosen with all liberty that which
may suit them best. I only demand sin
cerity iu Its foreign relations, and desire
but one thing, w hich is (he prosperity
ana inaepenuence ot that ucautitul conn
try under a government stable and
Not wishing to impose government
upon Mexico, he cannot require 80KK)
men for any purpose connected with that
country. Yet he wishes Europe to believe
that those troops are intended for Mexico.
What is tbeir real destination? All
the signs of the times 6how that Italy,
Germany, and all Europe, including
France itself, are on the brink of revolu
tion; are, in fact, one vast volcano, with
many mouths, each ready lo belch forth
liery lava which will carry destruction
in its path. The struggle is likely to
begin in Italy, but would be sure to ex
tend to France, aud the Emperor himself
is in dinger of assassination. The cap
ture of Garibaldi, so far from soothing
the rising troubles, has only thrown fuel
to Ihe tlame. It has raised up a dozen
Gariabaldis, and should his wound,
which has become alarming, terminate
fatally, there is no knowing what a ter
rible political convulsion may take place,
extending all over Europe. Forewarned
is forearmed. Napoleon has prepared
himself for the storm, and when it bursts
upon him he will be found ready for tho
emergency. 1 he 80,000 troops aro des
tined for Italy. Like the elder Napole
on, whose courso He imitates, but with
more caution and secresy, he announces
an expedition for one thing while he in
tends it for another. He closed the first
war inltaly purposely without settling the
Italian question. , Ho did not want Iial
iau unity. W hen lie does he can secure
it very easily. England would stand by
him, and it is known neither Prussia nor
Itussia would object. As for Austria,
she is of no account without some pow
erful ally. Ihe Italian question will
now probably receive its final solution in
some form or other at the hands of Na
poleon, and that solution will be such as
to redound to the aggrandizement and
security of the French empire. He
will either got tho island of Sardinia as
an equivalent for his services in estab
lishing the unity and independence of
Italy, or he will place on the throne some
member of the lonaparte family, in or
der to make sure of the permanent alli
ance and friendship of the Italian king
dom. We may dismiss from our minds,
therefore, the idea that the troops Napo
leon has now ready for action are intend
ed for Mexico. The sagacious Emperor
of the French well knows that he could
not hold Mexico against the will of the

tho channel runs within less than CflT
yards of the shore, and the position af-
lorus a lino opportunity to the guerrillas
lo prosecute their hellish Work. Some
forty or fifty shots wero fired, sixteen of
which passed through the pilot-house,
one of them cutting the lapel of the pilot'
coat. The pilct, Gus. Melon, leaped
down under Ihe wheel, and, with tho aid
of Capt. Barclay, who also acted in tho
coolest manner, steered the boat out of
danger. A soldier, named Curry, of the
51 st Indiana, was wounded in the thigh,
aud Judge Edmonds, ot Hupkinsville, a
noted secessionist, was killed. He was
standing by the side of a Federal oflicer
in uniform, for whom the ball was in
tended, but happily the aim was jusft
right to pick oil the mend of tho assassin.
Curry was left at the hospital in Shaw
neetown, while Edmonds was sent back
to his friends.
Immediately after passing out of ranga
of the guerrillas' guns, the Nashville met
the Dtiko and warned her of the danger
ahead, when she rounded to and accom
panied the Nashville lo Shawnectown,

by tho May Duke. Tho Nashville was

The Duke had as part of her cargo-,

for Col. Brooks's Cavalry, and it is sop
posed that the guerrillas were watching
for her, to whom she would have been a
valuable prio. Tho conduct of Capt.
Barclay aud Gus. Melon, tho pilot, is rep
resented as gallant and heroic in the

The New York Post says there is an
impression in naval circles, founded on
an order issued by Secretary Wells, that
the splendid steam frigato Colorado,
forty-one guns, of tho Warbash and Nia
gara rank, has been ordered to the Medi
terranean to reinforce tho ileet at present
cruising there, and lhat two other ships- .
of-war arc preparing for a liko destina
tion. It is certain that (he Colorado is
for foreign service, from (he quantity of
stores she is taking in; and her great
draught of water renders her almost use
less on our seaboard. Kecruiting for the
navy having increased in a manner of
late, and a great number of largo vessels
having been reported ready for sea, tho
Secretary finds abundant resources at
hand to keep up (ho usual strength of our
naval Heels on Ihe most important for
eign stations. Thus, for instancp, whila
for years before the outbreak of the re
bellion we never had more than three
men-of-war in the Mediterranean sea, wo
now Iiave live, and are likely soon to hive
eight. This fact is not generally known,
many persons supposing that tho organ
ization of our blockading squadron ne
cessitated Ilio withdrawal of our shiptt
from abroad. In the Mediterranean our
fleet now anil in 1800 compares as fol
lows; 181101. Wabash, .'1,000 tons, steamer.

There teems also to be an understand
ing that before many months the African
and East India squadrons, which wero
reduced only by tho exigencies of tho re
bellion, will soon bo placed on their old
footing. Indeed, it is beginning to ap
pear lhat but for tho ollieers of the ship
attached to them, these fleets would not
have been recalled at all. There aro nor
about forty men-of-war ready for orders
