been able to trace a full and continuous history of any one vessel in the Navy ; consequently I have been unable to indicate every change
that has taken place, which, in itself, may have effected the general qualities of the vessel. Besides a thorough overhauling and repair
which most vessels undergo after a long cruise, it is well understood that an active cruiser requires a complete renovation about every eight
years, if built of white oak, and 12 years, if built of live oak, when a variety of changes usually follow, sometimes in the quantity, and at
others in mode of stowing the ballast, water, provisions, stores, &c., &c. The battery is frequently changed ; a poop deck, or topgallant
furecastle, frequently added or substracted ; spars lengthened or shortened; stayed forward or aft; sails increased or diminished, &c.,&c. ;
any one of which changes may materially affect the sailing qualities of a vessel as all sailors know. Among these changes I will further
mention that of substituting chain for hemp cables, and the general introduction of iron tanks, in the place of wooden casks, for carrying
water, &c. ; which has had the effect of increasing the stability of the ship and rendering less ballast necessary.

The first American sea fight recorded. En
countered a prize Sloop in Long Isl d Sound,
manned with 14 Narragansett Indians, 10 of
whom were cither killed or drowned, by
,. jumping overboard.

r The first regular Naval engagement. With a
a Barbary Rover, armed with 20 guns, and
70 men, which took place at sea, and lasted
[ one entire day, when the parties separated.

f First northern fleet engagement. Against the
French at Port Royal, N. S , in May, and
Quebec, L. C., in October. Was successful
in the first affair only. The largest ship en
gaged was a 44, manned by 200 men.
First southern Fleet engagement. Engaged
and repulsed a Spanish Fleet of six ships,
commanded by a French Admiral, off
Charleston, S. C., and captured one vessel,
manned by 90 men.

1 The second expedition against the French in
Acadia, now Nova Scotia. Effected nothing.

} Third expedition against the French in Nova
Scotia ; Port Royal surrendering after a three
) days siege.

(Fourth expedition ngainst the French, up the
St. Lawrence, &c. Totally failed, owing,
principally, to bad weather and navigation,
whereby 8 Transports and 1,000 souls were
lost. The Admiral s ship, the Edgar, of 70
guns, returned to England, and soon after
[ blew up, destroying 400 more lives,
f The next combined expedition of importance,
and the first during this war, against the
French on the Island of Cape Breton. Lt.
Col. W. Pepperel, of Maine, heading the
Colonial land forces, consisting of 4, 070 men,
with 18 field pieces and 3 mortars. This
force was joined at Cansenu on the 23d of
April, by a portion of the British W. India
Squadron, under Commo. Warren, whose
flag ship, the Superb, of CO guns, and 10
other vessels, assisted in the reduction of
Louisburg, after a siege of 47 days. This
place was strongly fortified, and defended by
1,000 militia and 600 regulars.
104 cannijn, 16 mortars, and 76 swivels, the ship
Vigilant, GO, and 560 men, a Privateer, of 18
guns and 94 men, two E. India shins, two
South Sea ships, and 8 other vessels, were
among the captures property altogether esti
mated at several million dollars. This place
was subsequently surrendered to the French
^ again, atlhepeaceof AixLaChapelle, in 1748.

These Privateers were fitted out in N. York,
between 1757 and 63, or the end of the "old
French War." Find very little upon record
in relation to them, although some of their
names appear at subsequent dates, under a
different rig, with a different armament and
Captain, which makes it probable the vessel
is not the same.

Encountered and captured the French Privateer
Les Deux Amis, Capt. Felix, of 10 guns and
98 men, after an action of over two hours,
during which "300 powder flasks and 72
stink pots" were expended upon the enemy.














At sea.


The principal of many, and perhaps the most
obstinate sea fight that took place during this
war, the enemy having lost 80 in killed and
wounded, and the Americans 37 do.



JVole. The engagements and captures that took place from this period up to the War of the Revolution, and even after, were gene
rally near the coast, owing to the scarcity of ammunition, which rendered it impracticable for our cruisers to keep the sea long.

The British claim to have captured vessels of
these names, armed as per table, which I find
no where mentioned in the American accounts.

P

The first overt act of resistance, and commence
ment of our struggle with Great Britain.
June 18, captured the English schooner Gaspt",
tender to the British squadron, off Provi-
/ dence, which had run aground while in chase
of the Providence packet Hannah, Captain
Linzee. She was armed with i!7 men; was
carried by boarding; set on fire, and soon
after blew up.
"May 11, off Holmes s Bay, captured the Brit
ish schooner Margaretta, armed with 4 guns,
14 swivels, and 36 men. Was carried by
boarding; her captain, Moore, and about 20
men killed on either side.
1 This was the first sea fight after the battle of
[ Bunker Hill.
Captured two schooners, armed with 8 guns,
10 swivels, and about 50 men each, that had
been sent out expressly to capture him. Met
them both in the Bay of Fundy, and while
separated carried each by boarding.
For this gallant act Capt. O Brien was promot
ed and given command of his prizes, which
he named the "Liberty and Diligent."
I August 9, recaptured a prize schooner, also 1
cutter and 2 barges, armed with 4 swivels
J and 35 men, in charge of a Lieut. fromH. B.
M. sloop Falcon, in Gloucester harbor, with
a loss of but 1 killed and 2 wounded.
Two vessels borrowed from Massachusetts by
Gen. Washington, and sent to the St. Law
rence to intercept military stores. Made 10
captures, all of which were subsequently re
leased by Congress.
April. Captured the schooner Volante in Mar
tha s Vineyard, a tender to H. B. M. S.
\ Scarborough.

) Dec. Captured a British tender in the Chesa-
r peake.

This was the first cruiser that sailed with a
commission and general instructions from
Gen. Washington.
Nov. 29. Captured the Transport Brig Nancy,
with military stores, including several brans
guns, and one mortar.
Dec. 8. Captured ship Jenny, 2 guns, and 30
men, with a cargo of provisions.
Dec. 8. Captured ship Concord, cargo of Dry
Goods.
Dec. 8. Captured brig Hannah, cargo of Rum,
&c. , sold for $25,(JUO, and beat oft a British
schooner of 8 guns, having 2 vessels under
convoy.
( Dec. 8. Captured schooner Industry and sloop
\ Polly.

} Captured by the Powey and left at Boston with
\ 4 other vessels, dismasted, when the British
) evacuated in April, 1776.

< Captured a sloop of 6 guns, and recaptured 2
( prizes off Ocracock.

Date of commission or bond 1778.



> Probably the same vessel recommissioned.



A brig of this name, of 16 guns and 100 men, com
manded by Capt. Hallet, of Massachusetts, be
longed to the squadron of Commo. Saltonstall,
and with others was burnt in the Penobscot on
the 14th of August, 1779, to prevent falling in
to the hands of the enemy.



Captured the Privateer Mercury, Capt. Campbell,
of 8 guns, after a slight resistance.



. Captured .



In June, 1776,a party of American soldiers from
Boston captured a brie; off the harbor; beat off
the tender to the Nautilus man of war, and car
ried their prize into Bedford,



Mile. The classification, &c., of vessels con
tained in these tables, have, in nearly every in
stance, been copied from official documents.
Nevertheless, I suspect that a sloop has some
times been called a ship, or a brig a schooner,
and that the swivels have sometimes been in
cluded in the number of guns given; but in the
absence of positive proof, I have felt bound to
confine myself to the record.



The enemy claim to have captured a vessel of
this name and force just previous to the war of
Independence.
