over the harbor of Apia, where war-ships
of the United States, Great Britain, and
Germany were at anchor. Several Amer
ican and German ships were wrecked at
the beginning of the hurricane. The Brit
ish corvette Calliope succeeded in steam
ing out of danger. As the Calliope pass
ed the Trenton a great shout went up from
over 400 men aboard the American flag
ship, and three cheers were given for the
Calliope. Immediately three cheers for
the Trenton and the American flag were
wafted across the angry waters from the
Calliope. A few moments later the
Trenton herself was wrecked, but Captain
Farquhar succeeded in saving all his crew
of 450 men and officers excepting one.

Farragut, DAVID GLASGOW, naval offi
cer; born near Knoxville, Tenn., July 5,
1801 ; son of George Farragut, who was
a native of Minorca; came to America in
1776; entered the Continental army; was
a bugler, it is supposed, at the age of
seventeen, in the battle of the Cowpens;
attained the rank of Major; settled in
Tennessee; and was master in the United
States navy, serving under Patterson in
the defence of New Orleans. David en



tered the navy as midshipman when be
tween nine and ten years of age, first
serving under Porter, and was with him
in the terrible fight at Valparaiso. He
was promoted to commander in 1841,
having served faithfully up to that time.
Still persevering in duty, he was placed in
very responsible positions afloat and
ashore, and when the Civil War broke
out he was in command of the Brooklyn,
steam sloop-of-war. He commanded the
naval expedition against New Orleans in
the spring of 1862, having the Hartford
as his flag-ship. Organizing the West
Gulf blockading squadron, on his arrival
in the Gulf of Mexico, by boldness and
skill, with admirable assistants, he went
up to New Orleans triumphantly. He
operated with great vigor on the Missis
sippi River, afterwards, between New
Orleans and Vicksburg; and on July 16,
1862, was placed first on the list of pro
posed admirals. In 1863 he co-operated
in the capture of Port Hudson, and in
August, 1864, defeated the Confederate
forces in Mobile Bay. His exploits in the
Gulf region gave him great fame, and in
December, 1864, he received the thanks

William Jackson was secretary.

A committee was appointed to report
rules of proceeding by the convention.
They copied them chiefly from those of
Congress, and their report was adopted.



Each State was to have one vote; seven
States were to constitute a quorum; all
committees were to be appointed by bal
lot; the doors were to be closed, and an
injunction of secrecy was placed on the de
bates. The members were not even al
lowed to take copies of the entries on the
journal. The injunction of secrecy as to
the proceedings of the convention was
never removed. At the final adjournment
the journal, in accordance with a previous
vote, was intrusted to the custody of
Washington, by whom it was afterwards
deposited in the Department of State. It
was first printed, by order of Congress, in
1818. Robert Yates, one of the members
from New York, took brief notes of the
earlier debates. These were published in
1821, after Mr. Yates s death. Mr. Madi
son took more perfect notes of the whole
convention, which were published in 1840;
and a representation to the legislature of
Maryland, by Luther Martin, furnished
nearly all the material for the history of
the NATIONAL CONSTITUTION (q. v.).
