Knowing the slow rate or speed of the Uatleras,
I atfjnce snspocted that deception waa being
practlcrd, and henco ordered' the ship to be
cleared for action, with everything In readiness
for a determined attack and a vigorous de
fence. When within about four mile of the vessel,
I observed that she had ceased to steam, and
waa lying " broadside, on," awaiting us. It
was nearly 7 o'clock, and aulte dark, but not.

assnred, from the general character of the Tes-

range about 75 yards and upon asftlng

" Her Brttlanlc Majesty's ship Vixen." I re
