ri, Tuesdav, June 21, Wi. This time we
have a hit of exciting war news to send you from
thif side of the water. The sinking of the AU
bama by the KrarMarge, off the port of CheroourR,
ocru fiics, for the moment, the thought ami the
cooverxalinn of everybody, for it is rare that so
many ctrctt instances comolne to give Interest to
anv one event.
The joy of onr loyal people here is, as might
be expected, something lieyond dosrriptiou; I
need hardly tell you that for the sercssionists
and (heir European sympathizers, the blow was
tcirlble, and provoked louder and more pro
longed swearing probably than any event of this
eventful war. 1 shall attempt to give you all the
most important details reluting to this exciting
In one of the many conversations the American
Minister hns teen obliged to hold with tbe French
(Jovernmetit on the subject of the asylum which is
furnished to the Rebels in the French naval ports,
Mr. Dayton, I nm told, said to the Foreign Min
ister that all that was wanting to complete
the hospitality of France towurds the Rebels
was to give refuge to the Aabama; that
then they would have given aid and pro
tection to the whole Confederate navy, and
he terminated by saying that this vessel, know,
ing how its mates bad been received in France,
would no doubt soon enter a French port to de
mand the hospitality which had been accorded
tbe others. To this tho Foreign Minister is said
to have replied with great energy that it would
not be permitted, that he would not allow the
Alabama to come in, and that their ports should
nut be made a place of common resort for these
This was three months ago. At that time, al
though watching with interest tbe course of the
Atalxima, we did not anticipate so early a visit
from her. Only a fortnight ago Mr. Forbes, of
New York, arrived from SbaughaJ, and gratified
us all by assuring us that we would never see the
Alabama again in Kuropean waters, for that she
was badlv used op by her long and active ser
vice, and from this fact and the fact that the
maritime interdictions against her in the Kast
bad been made very severe, she would probably
be fold there.
We were therefore not little astonished to
find that the Alabama was in the port of Cher
bourg, and that she had made tbe run from the
East in tbe remarkably short time, for a vessel
In her condition, of a hundred days. So impos
sible did it seem, that when she entered the
port of Cherbourg last Friday week, both the
American Vice-Consul at that place and the
Maritime Prefect telegraphed to Paris that itwaa
Immediately the American Minister at Paris
telegraphed to Captain Winslow of the Keartarge,
then lying in one of the ports of Holland, and' to
tbe old sailing frigate St. I.oun, supposed to be
at Cadiz, to repair immediately to Cherbourg to
catch the pirate if possible. The Keartarge ar
rived at once, but tbe tit. l.ouin bad not yet had
time to arrive at the moment of the fight.
The American Minister also protested at once
to the French Government against the admission
of the Alabama, and reminded the Foreign
Secretary of bis previous promise lu regard to
Tbe American Minister could with more jus
tice protest energetically in view of the fact
tbat the Alabama did not come into a French
Iort under stress of weather ; she seemed to have
struck a straight line from the Cape to Cherbourg j
she did not turn either to the right or to the left ;
she did not attempt to go into either the
pons of England, or of Holland, or ef Belgium,
or of Spain, or of Portugal, as she might have
done with the same facility.
Mr. Dayton therefore made a most apt and
most forcible point in declaring to the Foreign
Minister that, by his indulgence, tbe Rebels were
using French porta exactly as if they were their
own ; that they paid no regard to the stress of
wea'her claese; and that such had been the
hospitality shown them in France tbat they were
fast learning to make it their only rendezvous.
Tbe result of this protest waa that Semmes,
after the thing had goue through the "circumlo
cution odlce, received a notice from the Mari
time Prefect to leave as soon as he had provi
sioned and coaled, and not to wait tor repairs, as
he bad expected to do. As soon aa this order
was sent to Semmes, Mr. Dayton sent his sou,
Mr. William Dayton, Jr., with Instructions to
Captain Winslow to make preparations for a
fight, for that Semmes had been ordered out and
would be obliged to go.
Captain Semmes, finding that be had no alter
native, determined to put the best face on the
matter, and to make aa much capital for himself
as possible. He therefore wrote a letter to tbe
Maiitime Prefoct, requesting him to inform Cap
tain Winslow tbat he considered tbe latter's con
duct in pretending to lie off and blockade him ia
a neutral port as aa Insult (!), and that he In
tended to come out and drive him off. Winslow
replied, "Let him come out aud try it."
Both parties made their preparations accord
Ingty. Semmes, whose business it was to run
aud not to tight, waa ao badgered and worried by
tbe taunt of our aide, by tho pats on the back of
bis friends and sympathisers, and by the restric
tions of the French authorities, that a less brave
man than he would have been driven by despera
tion to light ; and Captain Win. low, who properly
estimated all these circumstances, felt perfectly
sure that Senimes waa going to right.
Semmes left all bis valuables iu the hands of
the Brazilian consular agent on shore, and after
inviting hii frieuds to coiae ou' and see the light,
went to sea.
You will see ao many aceouuta of the fight,
tbat I reed not dwell at lenntu on that part of
the affair. Mr. William Dayton, Jr., and An
tolne, the well known messenger of theAmericin
legation, no cerf saw the ft 'lit.
"Tb'i'V wtrt dn board tin ll.atmtn ifore and 1
after the action, nnd their account differs from
most of those published, and very much from the
one-sided accounts of the MomUur and the other
Secession prints, to whom tbe atfiir lias been a
very bitter pill. According to Mr. uayton, jr. s
account, the action lasted aluut an hour and a
The Keartarge, although hit in several places,
received no vital shot. The Keartarqe bad hut
three mi n touched, and these not mortally. It
is not true that ut any part of the fight the Ala
bama had the advantage; the manoeuvring and
tiring of the Keartarge were uotu superior to
those of tbt) AlalMma.
There is no evidence that Captain Semmes
tiled to board tbe Keartarge, as the secession
prints say. Toward the end of the light Captain
Winslow succeeded in planting a shot in the ma
chinery of the Alabama, which disabled her; he
then had things all his own way, and, running
close to her, he poured into hera destructive con
verging broadside, which tore through a whole
section of the .-1o6ifao'j side, at the water-line,
and let the water tluouuh In cascades.
Ilotb ships then stopped tiring, and the Alabama,
Without striking her Hag, started toward Cher
bourg, hut Captain Winslow, hoisting bis flag of
lctory, started to head her otr. Ho saw, how
ever, Hint the Alabama was tilling, aud at once
lowered two boats to go to her aid, and, in effect,
the vessel sank before she bad proceeded a do.eu
lengths towards the harbor.
The Kearmrge't boats picked up sixty eight
persons, of w bom fourteen were wounded, und of
whom three died. Tho others were picked up
by the English yacht, Ciptulii Lancaster, and
landed at Soujrimpton. Tho Keartarge steamed
at once lutojTie port of Cherbourg with hor
Aud now, here arises two Important questions.
Ouc relates to the prisoners brought into Cher
bourg, and the other to those carried into South
ampton. The prisoners brought into Cherbourg,
innny of whom are Frenchmen, dctuan lud to
bo paroled, and Captain Winslow. who was
crowded ior room, also desired to know ot the
American Minister il he could not parolo then..
Mi . Dayton tel. graphed to bis son and to Cac
tsiu Winslow that the prisoner could not bo Da.
ruled, and that they aiust be bold till the N.
I. unit arrived, aud then conveyed to the Lulu,d
lu regard to Captain Semmes and the other
tsoncrs carried Into houlliampton, Captain
insluw clulins them as his urisouers. and Mr.
Dayton has advised Mr. Adams to dowaud their
rendition. Cap'atn Winslow had ample time nnd
on sn- to pick up all the officers and men of the
Alabama, but the Ix lb of the Knclisb yecht ran
in aim a tually atole them away, as if aain.- upou
prearranged plan, thus constituting a clear case
ol mtervi ntion.
Csptsin Semmes and party did not, therefore,
escape. They were stolen away by a party who
was indirectly Interfering in the" fight. Tnere
was no wish en the part of Captain Wlnsl.iw to
see Captain Si mines drowned. On the eontrirv,
he would have soou taken up Semmes' boat lo.id
lleie let me pi 'ice a reflection. I It not
ftrui ge that at her birth and her death, and all
through the course ot her short existence,
whenever tho Alabama needed help thero was
nlwnys an Knglisliiuau there to render it ? Mho
was constructed by F.nglishmen in an
F.ngllsh port ; sho was taken to sea, armed,
equipped, and started on her career of pillage and
devastation by Englishmen ; sho was ted, har
bored, petted, and protected in English ports;
and finally, when she arrives at the lust tragic
mi nf in -T destructive existence, there steps in
an Englishman to steal away her captain and
ollici rs !
The Monilevr anil other Secession sheets say
that the eontt st was an unequal one, and this in
the tVceof the boast of Laird and other bom
bnsiic Ei'glish shipbuilders, that the Ainbima
could either whip or outrun the Kt irtarge, and
that Captain Semmes demanded nothing better
thn a trial of the qualities of the two boats.
The facts are, that the Krartage could both
outrun and w hip her. An ofllecr ot tho Krart irge
said In re the other day, that if they could get
sight ol the Alabama In the morning, no mat er
ut what distance, he was sure that they could
catch her and sink her bvforo night.
lioth are wooden vessels, the Alabama being of
K'OO tons, and the Kearmrge 10.10. Hoih carried
about the same number of guns, hat the one
carried Yankee guns and the other English, and
this gave the Keartarge a great advantage. A
man who w ill trust himself to Entll-h guns at
this advanced age ought to have his ship sunk.
The Keartarge carried a complement of ISO
men, and the Alabama IMJ. The ditlurence was
not great as regards number, for ships of that
sir.e can Is? just as well handled in an open sea
fight with l.'iO as with ISO men. But the hir
tarje bud a great advantage iu the kind of men.
She had Yankee, sailors and some of the old
gunners of the United States Navy tho first
sailors nnd the first gunners In the world.
The otllcers of tho Alamma, I am told, uro all
superior men in their procsion, but their crew
volunteered for privateering purposes, and wcro
probably not the kind of men to fight such a foe
as they found in tlie Keartarge. For it is not tho
most adventurous or the most blustering man
who makes the best tight in a case of life or
Dr. fiult, of Norfolk, Vs., tho surgeon of the
Alabama, and a gentleman who seems to have
bceu much beloved and respected bv nil on board
the vessel, was drowned. So at least it is re
ported. The Ycddo, new Confederate ship at Bordeaux,
was yestcrduy preparing to sail to-day. The
owners say she is sold to a neutral party, and
tho Government nppt ais to Conlide in the state
ment. We will soon see.
It is to 1)0 hoped that our Government will
hurry over here some additional men-of-war.
1 hey would be very useful in various ways.

Tlie Nlitht from the "Drerhonad."
On tiik Dkck op thk "Dkkrmocnd," Cowes,
June 19. Il is seldom that an A mcrican abroad
has the opportunity of sending borne such glo
rious news as it is now my fortune to narrate.
The Alabama, otherwise known as the "21K "
baa at last met the fate she ao richly deserved,
and at the bands of a United States gunboat,
which Captain Semmes, of his own choice, had
challenged to mortal combat.
ImH week the Alabama arrived at Cherbourg
for the purpose of repairing.preparatory to another
cruise of destruction ; but owing to the absence of
the Emperor, who was at Foutalncbleau, there
wna some delay In procuring the necessary per
mission. In the meantime Captain Winslow, of the V. 8.
sloop Keartarge, received Information of the
Alabama'! arrival, and immediately left the
vicinity of Dover to watch, and, if possible, to
cupture the pirate.
On Saturday Captain Semmes went oa above,
where be had an interview with a gentleman con
nected with the firm of Saunders & Otlcy, and
with whom be left his Journals and other docu
ments connected with the Alabama, saying that
"He would not bavo that damned Y'ankoe flaunt
ing bis flag Ik fore him, but would go out and
fight him." This, of course, cansed considerable
talk as well as excitement at Cherbourg, some
believing that Semmes would keep his word, and
others not. The English steam yacht HeerfuntnJ,
owned by Mr. Lancaster, was at Cherbourg,
having on board Mr. Lancaster, bis wife, ami
family, who determined to witness tbe engage
ment. On Sunday morning, the I9th of June, the
weather being clear, with light winda, tbe Ala
bama was observed to be preparing to cast loose
from the dock, evidently for the purpose of going
to sea. This immediately caused the Deerhound
to gel up steam and leave Cherbourg at 9 o'clock
A. M., followed by tbe Alabama at half-past 10
o'clock A. M., and also the French Iron-clad
Couronne, which ship took up a position wltlila
three miles of the land, to prevent fighting ia
Tbe Keartarge at this time waa about ten miles
off shore, and, oliaerving tbe movements of the
Alabama, immediately got on full steam, beat to
auarters, and steered towards the Pirate. When
within a distance of two thousand yards the
Alabama commenced tbe aetlou by firing a broad
side from ber starboard battery, tho Keartarge
Immediately replying with her sturboard gnus.
A sharp and most spirited fire waa now kept up
between the two vessels, tbe Alabama firing prin
cipally solid shot, and the Keartarge using more
shell from her 11-lneb coluinbiada.
In manuuvring they made seven complete
circles, the Alabama endeavoring to keep at long
runge, but unsuccessfully, on account of the
superior power of tbe Keartarge.
At twelve M. the firing from the Alabama
slackened, and she waa seen to make bead-sail
towards land. Her escape, however, waa Dot
permitted by the Keartarge, who kept up a steady
fire, and at half-past twelve the Alabama had her
stern under water, and a white flag Hying, and at
fifty minutes past twelve abe gave a lurch to bet
port side and sank, thus ending her career of
destruction under tbe guns of the first war ship
she bas ventured to encounter. .And may thus
end all enemies of tbe United States.
The engagement lasted juat one bour from the
tlnik the two vessels came into range. Tbe firing
on the Alabama was much more rapid than ou
the Keartarge, she (Alabama) liriug three to her
one at the beginning of the action, but gradually
diminishing, thus showing tbe superior manner
in which tbe guns of the Keartarge were served.
A short description of the Alabanui may not be
amiss, moiciun . win give It: The Alabama,
er "wV' w lauded from ,h. building yard
of the MnS'rs. Laird, or Birkenhead. She waa a
barque-rigged wooden propeller, 1060 tons regis
ter, 210 feet length of keel, 210 feet length over
all. 32 feet beam, and 17 feet depth.
Her engines were built by Laird k Co., and
were two horizontal ones, three hundred horse
power each, with stowage for nearly four hun
dred tuna of coul. Her sails and sumding rigging
at ail times available were aa follows: Fore,
loretopmast, staysail-jib, two large try-sails, the
usual square rails on tore and main, with tho ex
ception of mainsail, which was a Hying one,
spanker nnd gall topsails ; all the standing rigging
was wire. She also had a double wheel, und the
motto, Aide tei, et JJieu Faidera. Sho carried
live boats, viz : Cutter and launch amidships,
gig and whaletiout between the main and mizen
masts, and dingy astern. Tbe man deck was
pierced for twelve guns; elliptic stern, billet head,
At the time she left Cherbourg hor crew
numbered one hundred and titty persons, she
sailed from Liverpool on the 2'Jth of July, HW2,
and after preying for nearly two years upon un
armed merchantmen, and having performed
nothing more worthy of her boasted prowess
than the destruction of tho llatterat, lured by the
displav of false colors within rango of her lire,
she has fought ber first aud last battle. One
may truly say "she has been seen in the light of
the flumes she has kindled on the ocean, but
never iu the red glare of battle."
It Is amusing to see the wry faces that John
Bull makes ovr the news of hor destruction,
especially after having made so much fun of tho
American navy. The idea is ob ! so hard to swal
low that a Yankee gunboat, with a crow of one
hundred men mid eight guns, should have not
only utterly destroyed, but actnally sunk in one
short hour a man-of-war built, armed, equiped,
and manned by Englishmen (who sing "Br.
taunia rules the wave") iu fact, nothing but a
regular appointed British man-ut-war, ouly sail
ing under dtllercnt colors.
Among those who sympathize with the South
there is un evident feeling of disappointment and
di suondencv t for it was whispered about in Lon
don on Saturday evening that the South would
soon have cause to fuel proud of her achieve
ments at sea. How bitter must be their disap
pointment. , '
Let all true patriots rejoice that tho Alabama Is
no more, und let England take not only a lesson,
but a warning ; for sho will surelv have to pay in
full fur tbe damage done by tbe "English pirate."

Y'ou are aware that the Alalnima put In hero a
few days back, coming from the Chinuse Seas.
Captain fciemincs, her commander, was In want
of wood, provisions, and coal. He lud eight
millions of francs on board, the booty heaped up
from her various encounters, but tho crow were
in want of clothes and shoes.
1 be captain was permitted to take on hoard a
supply of fuel and some provisions and clothing,

lad taken from captured vessels. As tbe Hear
targe. Federal steamer, bad arrived outside tho
port in order to attack the Confederate vessel
when she came out. this latter determined to go
and meet ber openly. .
Accordingly on Sunday morning tbe Alabama
got ber s'catn up and lett the roadstead, escorted
by the French iron-clad frigate t'ouronne, the
mission of which waa io have what ia called the
maritime territory respected, namely a dis
tance of nine marine miles. When the two com
batants passed tbe limit, tbe Couronne returned
into tbe roadstead.
Tbe engagement then commenced, the Alabama
endeavoring to run alongside and board ber ad
versary, who was more powerful than herself,
both as to build and weight of metal ; but she
could not succeed in the attempt, as the equality
in their speed allowed the other vessel to keep at
a certain distance, and both the steamers kept
firing tbeir guns at a good range.
These manaovres and the cannonade lasted
nearly an bour, at the md of which time, tho
Alabama slackened her fiVe and let off her steam,
which cirenmstance, for those spectator who

some damage in her machinery. Tbe Keartarge
continued Co fire ai a distance, avoidiug to eome
close to tbe Confederate vessel.
Tbe latter in a few minutes after set her head
sails, which appeared to show tbat the after part
of the vessel bad been damaged, and that she ln
ti nded to run In for tbe land. At about half-past
twelve the Alabama went down all at once by the
su rn, her flag still flying, and disappeared. Two
of her boats bad lieen previously lowered with
men in them. When the Alabama turned to
wards the shore tbe Federal vessel kept firing on
her, without tho fire being returned, except at
It appears that the Alabama at first resisted
Ecrfectly, until a shot from tbe Keartarae knocked
er screw to pieces, and that accident left the
Confederate vessel completely at the mercy of
ber enemy. The Keartarge picked up si xty-two
of the Alabama' t crew, and then went into Cher
bourg, where she anchored in tbe atVernoon.
Nine of the Alabama' t men were picked op by a
Three of the men picked up by the Keartarge
died some hours after from their wounds. The
Keartarge had three men wounded. The Inhabi
tants of Cherbourg had all assembled on tbe
quays, on the breakwater, and on every point
whence they could get a view of tbe engagement.
Tbe Federal vessel, on coming back, an bored
close to the Xapoleon screw-liner, and wot toon
vitiled by nitmertntt jiertont.
The Keartarge bas sutlered severely, having
received twelve shot in her hull. Hit crew were
superior in number to tbat of ibt Alabama, which
bad between one hundred and thirty and one
hundred and forty men. The tivo vessels fired
about one hundred and thirty shots each. Tbe
wounded on both sides have the greatest atten
tion paid them. They bave been sent to the Na
val Hospital, where they have been visl ed by
Vice Admiral Dupouy, tbe Maritime Prefect
Veaaela Deetreyed by the " Alabama."
On the 29th of July, 18o2, at9j o'clock A. U ,

According to this notice, the Alabama left the

At 10-20 A. M. we discovered her steering to

TLe Alabama carried a 100-ponml rifle, with
one heavy bti-pounder, and six broadside 32
pounder. The Keartarge carried four broadside 32
poundiTs, two 11-Inch and one '-'H-pound rlllo,
being four less than rt Alabama.
Tbo only shot which 1 fear will give ns uny
trouble, is a luO-pound ritle, whlcb entered our

It would seem almost invidious to panic ul trize

In Mr. Chase's annual report on the state of
the finances for the fiscal year ending on tho .10th
June, 1SC2, dated Ith December, 1804 (pige 2),
he says: "On the supposition that the war may
be continued with undiminished dlsbursomeuts
until the 1st of July, lBflt, the debt likely to
have been then Incurred must be estimated at
1 his estimate was made nearly nineteen months
In advance, when the debt stood at seven hundred
and twenty millions, and the increase of tho debt
for one month before and a month afterwards,
was at the averago rata of $1,440,000 per diem.
In the period covered by the forecast of tho
Secretary, tbo debt has actually Increased, In
mnnd numbers, one thonsand and twenty-four
millions, at the average rate of $1,800,000 per
diem of 572 days.
On the 28th of June, two days before the period
fixed, an official publication of the debt shows its
amount to be $1,740,036 680-M. If we add feur
millions for these two days, which is about the
present average Increase, we bave the estimate
justified and verified with a precision whlcb bas
no parallel in financial history.
Taking all the contingencies Into view, an error
of one hundred millions would not have surprised
adi pts on statistics j but the figures ascertained
come within leas than one million of tbe amount
