The Cruise of the Confederate Ship "Sumter". (From the Private Journal of an Officer)
Relates the impudent successes against Union ships enjoyed during the early part of the American Civil War by a Southern 'steam war-vessel' (191). The ship's blockade-running progress across the Atlantic is halted finally only by its 'boilers being completely worn out' (205).
