Served In Two Attacks Made on Fort Fisher In 18(11 and 1803. Commodore George Dewey, whose fleet of United States warships recently defeated the Spanish fleet in tho harbor of Manilla, in the Philippine) islands, is an old warriur of tho navy who got his christening of fire aboard tho old steam sloop Mississippi, under Farragut, iu the early days of tho civil war. Com modore Dowey is now about 01 years old. Ho belougu in Vermont, and he was appointed to tho Naval academy from that state in September, 1854. Four years later, when ho was graduated, ho was sent aboard tho steam frigate Wa bash for a cridso in tho Mediterranean. Dewey got his commission as lieutenant on April II), 1801, tight (lays after Fort Sumter was fired mediately as.siancMl tn oippi aim tin duty with tho west gulf squadron. Ho was on tho. MiKsissinni when sho took part with Farragut's ucner vessels in lorcing an entrance to the Mississippi river and again when COMMODORE GEOIKIl!

Captain Eailey's division of -tho fleet which attainted Port St. PhiliD. Tho hottest fight that the Mississippi ever engaged ia was her last one, and thts was perhaps as hot as any of the war. In March, 1803, tho fleet tried to run by the Confederate batterfes at Port Hudson. Sonio of the ships got as far as a narrow part of tho channel, where they met land batteries almost muzzle to muzzle, and then they were forced to retreat. The Mississippi did not get as far as this. A foggy day had been cboseu for tho attempt, and this was soon made moro obsenro by tho smoke of battle, and nmid this tho Mississippi lost her bearings and ran ashoro. Her officers found that sho had struck just tinder tho guns of a battery iu tho middle of tho lino of fortifications and one of tho strongest cf tho lot. In half an hour 250 shots struck tho vessel, and she was riddled from end to end. There was no chanco to hold her, and her crew took to their boats and lauded on the opposite side cf tho river after set ting her on firo. Soon, lightened by tho loss of tho crow mid by tho fire, sho drifted oft", and, blazing and saluting with bursting shells, sho arifted down tho river, until finally tho firo reached her magazines, and her career was end ed iu ono great explosion. Dowey was next attached to tho fiteam gunboat Agawan of tho north Atlantic bkickading squadron, and ho took part in the two attacks made on Fort Fisher iu December, 1804, and January, 1805. lu March, 1805, ho got his commission as lieutenant commander, and as such served on the famous old Koarsargo and on tho Colorado, tho flagship of tho Eu ropeau squadron, until 1808, when he was sent Jor service to the Naval acad emy. His first command was iu 1870, ,i,., i hnA tho Narrauunsett, doing special service. Ho becamo n commander in April, 18V a, ami, sun uu m gansett, was engaged m mating surveys of the Pacific until 1870, when ho was made a lighthouse inspector aud later the secretary of the ngimiousn uouiu. He commanded the Juniata in tho Asia tio station in 1883-3, and in September, 1884, was made a captain and put in charge cf tho Dolphin, then brand new and ono of tho four vessels which form ed the original "white squadron."

Then he said, "Si:;ty-five thousand pounds would bo quite n big fortune for a man to have, wouldn't it, mamma?" Answered iu the affirmative, he thought for awhile. Then he asked, "Mamma, if Mr. Kaglo has so much mency why does ho work so hard at this theater when ho could bo having a bully good time spending those bank notes?" Lcuisvillo Commercial.
