A MEMORABLE SEA-HQHT,
The following account of the capture
of the British frigate Ouerriere, by the
Constitution, which nppoared many
years ago in tho New lork Evening
Tost, will bo read with interest at thin
juncture. It was written by an eye
witness who was a prisoner on board
the (iuerriero during tho corn but:
Having been an American prisoner on
board the Guerriere during tho famous
battle between that frigate and the Uni
ted States frigate Constitution, I pro
pose giving you an account of that im-
Sortant action, which took placo in
About two weeks previous to the en
gagement I left Boston in nn American
ship, which was captured by the (Juer
riere somo five days before sho foil in
with the Constitution.
"It was 'about ten o'clock in tho morn
ing when the Constitution was discover
ed. The Guerriere hove to, to enable
her to como up. As tho Constitution
neared us, Captain Dacres handed Die
his glass, and asked what I took her to
be. My reply was, 'She looks like a
frigate. ' Very soon she caiuo within
the reach of the long guns of tho Guer
riere, which were fired, but with no ef
fect, as tho sea ran high. The Consti
tution made no reply, but, as I saw, was
manoeuvring for a position, during
which Captain Dacres said to me," "Do
you think she is going to slriko without
liringP" I replied, "I think not, sir."
At this moment, seeing a sevore con
tost was about commencing, in which I
could take no part, being only a prison
er, I raised my hat to Captain Dacres,
and said to hint, "With your permis
sion, sir, I will go below, as I can take
O, certainly," Raid ho, "and you had
better go Into tho cockpit, and, should
any of our men chance to get wounded,
I snail feel obliged if you will assist the
surgeon in dressing them. "Certainly,
sir, ' said I, and then descended into the
cockpit. There were the surgeons, nud
surgeons' mates and attendants, sftting
round a long table covered with instru
ments, and all necessaries for dressing
the wounded, as still as a funeral. With
in one moment after my foot left tho
lower round of the ladder the Constitu
tion gave that double broadside which
threw all in tho cockpit over in a heap
on tlio opposite side I t he slop.
For a moment it appeared as if how
cn and earth had struck together; a
more ternlic shock cannot bo imagined.
Before thoso In tho cockpit Ji.nl adjust
ed themselves the blood tan down from
the deck as if a wash-tub full had been
turned over, and Instantly the dead.
wounded nd dying were handed down
ns rapidly as men could pass them, till
tho cockpit was lillcd, with hardly room
for tho Burgeons to work. Midship
men were handed 'down with one leg,
some with one arm, and other wound
ed in almost leverv shape and condition
An ollicer who was on tho table, hnvimr
liis arm amputated, would sing out to u
comrade coming downwoundcu, "Well,
Bhlpmato, how goes tho battle?" An
other would utter some joke that would
make even the dying smile; and so con
stant and free wero tho playful remarks
from tho maimed, and even dying, that
I almost doubted my own senses. In
deed, all this was crowded Into a spaeo
vi noi over imcen or twenty minutes,
Deioro ino nnng ceased. I then went
upon deck, and what a scene wns jim
sented, and how changed in so short i
The Constitution looked pcrfeetlvfn.li.
, and even at thii time those on board the
Guerriere did not know what shit) had
fought them. On tho other hand, the
Guerriere was a mere rolling l,.r, aj.
most entirely at the mercy ofthoa.
; Her colors all shot away, her mainmast
and mlzzcnmast both gone by the board,
and hnr foremast Minding by the mere
. Iioneycomb tho shot made. Captain
iavics euou, wjui jun oiueers, survey,
Ing the Becrio ull, ull in tho most per
feet astonishment. At this moment a
bgat was seen putting off from tho hos
tile ship for tho Gueniero As soon as
within speaking distance, a young gen
tleman (Midshipman Heed, 1iow Com
modore) hulled and said, I wish to see
the ollicer In command ol mo ftliin."
At this, Captain Dacres stepped for
ward, and answered. Midshipman
Heed then snid, "Commodore' Hull's
compliments, rtnd wishes to know if
you havo struck your Hags" At this
Captain Dacres uppeitred amazed, but,
recovering himself, mid looking up and
down, he deliberately replied, "Well, I
don't know our mizzenuKisf, is gone,
our mainmast is gone und, upon the
whole, you may say wo have struck our
ilag!" , .
"Commodore HuH'seomplimcnts, nnd
wishes to know if you need the assist
ance of a surgeon or surgeon's mat e."
Cuptuin Dacres replied, "Hell, I sup
pose you have on board J our own ship
business enough for all your medical of
ficers!"' Midshipman Koed replied,
"0, no; we have only seven wounded,
and they were dressed half an hour
Captain Dacres then turned to me,
deeply aD'ected, and said, "How havo
our Mtiiatiims been most suddenly re
versed! You uro now free, and 1 am a
All tho boats of botli ships wero put
in requisition to remove tho wounded on
board the Const itution so dreadful was
the condition of many of them that two
days were nearly consumed in tho re
moval, after which the Guerriere was
burned, with all her stores, armaments,
etc., etc. The Constitution, having re
cently como out of port, had no room to
takp scarcely an article.
Who can imagine the joy I experienc
ed in iinding myself ngaiu under Amer
ican colors, or the pride I felt atiiuding,
from Commodore Hull down to tho
most humble man on board, an entire
absence of everything like a boastful or
even a trium pliant look at their won
derful victory. Captain Dacres kept his
state-room till we arrived in port. About
two hundred of his men were necessari
ly Ironed, as the whip was so crowded.
Charles Morrij (now Commodore)' 'he
first oilicer of tho Constitution, hud a
bull through his body, ami for several
days his recovery was doubtful during
which time he sent for me to come to
his room ami I well remember his un
concern for himself, although tho sur
geon had apprised him of his danger.
Every courtesy nnd kindness was by
Captain Hull and his ollieers extended
to their prisoners.
On Sunday, about noon, the Constitu
tion arrived in Boston Harbor. I was
sont on shore in the boat Tho harbor
between the ship and wharves was now
covered with boats to learn Hie news.
Tho lirt bout we neared we hailed,
"The Constitution has captured the
Guerriere." Instantly the two men in
the boat took oil' their hats, and violent
ly struck them on the side of the boat,
and, rising, gave cheer upon cheer.
They hailed other boats, and thus the
air was rent with cheers, and the vic
tory passed along until it readied the
wharf, and then spread like wildfire ull
over tho city and country.
11 is now nearly tony years since the
transaction of that day proved to the
Americans that British frigates were
not invincible. Who can remember that
day without feeling a glow of pride.that
so early in the war, aud in a manner so
unpretending, a victory so perfect
should have been achieved?" 1 write
this statement without notes, but be
lieve it to he, in tho main, accurate.
Hints on Starched Linen.
Much hits been said and written about
poorly donc-up linen. Ono will tell us
louse boiled starch, another will say use
it cold, and another says sho cannot get
the linen still" enough for her unm folks
without lirst using the boiled starch,
nnd then the cold. 1 think tho fault in
most cases is not in the starching, but
m tho ironing. Linen will not look nice
ironed with a rough, dirty iron, no emit
ter in what way it is starched. It is the
soiled look caused by dirty irons, and
not a hick of stillness, that tnont men
complain of. I do pity the man whoso
linen comes from tho ironing-board
looking only lit for thu wash. To jfro
vent this soiled uppeurunce it is not
necessary to have nickel-plated or uny
other improved llut-irons; the old-fash-ioned
Hal irons will do well enough if
kept smooth nnd clean. They should
be kept in a dry place to prevent rust,
und should never remain on the stove
unless in use. I have noticed that those
who keep llicm on the stove from one
ironing day to another always have
rough irons, und consequently soiled
linen. When they lire set to cool al
ways set on the end, as they gather
moisture if placed on the face. In using
cold starch, do not have tho wider very
thick with starch; wet the linen, ami
then plueo it on the ironing board und
rub with a dry cloth. This will remove
the particles of starch that would slick
to tho iron, nnd docs not take the
starch from the linen us rinsing it
would. I find no trouble in doing up
starch clothes in a nice manner bliico I
havo tried this wav.
A very sad incident occurred in Hobo
ken tho other night. A man, whose
wife was so badly ntllicted with the
lesthetie.erazo that she hud recently
given it parly to which only those of
icsthetie tastes were invited, came homo
in a state of intoxication, great ly la tho
astonishment of his better half, who
hud never seen him in wich a condition
before. "How dure you appear beforo
me in such a condition sir?" slio ex
claimed, "It's icsllietle," he replied.
"What do you, mean, sir?" asked the
wife. "You guvo a little blow-out tho
other evening, didn't you, that, you said
was a very consummate au'itir?" "I
did," she replied, "but what has that to
do with 3 our drunken orgleB?" "Well
said the man, "I've been bavins a little
toot, too." ClUaiio Tribune.
