ENGLAND AND THE KEARSARdE1.
Why the Vessel Won Her Great Com
bat With the Rebel Commerce
Destroyer. ' -
The old Kearsarge, which sunk the
Alabama, has herself come to a violent
end. She was wrecked In the Carib
bean sea, happily without los of life. .
It Is all but 30 years since she fought
her great fight off Cherbourg, so she
has kept the seas a long time. She de
served an honored place on the retired
list of the American navy, for she had
claims on national gratitude only sec
ond to those of the constitution, says
the Lc.idon Dolly News. Her fight
with the Alabama was a duel conduct
ed very much on the model of the old
personal contests Jn the age of chiv
alry. After a hot pursuit she had at
Ittet cornered the confederate cruiser
which had wrought so much ruin to
American commerce, and it was well
understood that pursuer or pursued
must perish. She watched the mouth
of Cherbourg harbor, which her enemy
waa under short notice to leave, and
the fight was Inevitable. The steamers
In port came out to see it, and some of
them carried excursion parties from,
Paris. The Kearsarge won by superior
artillery, . superior, discipline, . superior
patriotism. Her crew had a nobler Idea
to fight for than the medley of mer
cenaries that crowded the privateer.
These were a desperate gang, and they
had given their officers endless trouble
before the Kearsarge took the reforma
tion of their manners In hand. As the
Alabama steamed out of the harbor at
10 o clock on Sunday morning. June 19.
she found her antagonist waiting for
ner, and tne two approached each
tther ln ever-narrowing circles, firing
all the time. The Kearsarge was bet
ter prepared for defence, as well as for
attack. Her commander had roushly
armored ner In' the most vulnerable
parts by . laying all his snare chain
cables In folds over the sides. The Ala
bama opened lire at a distance of about
mile, and when the ships had made
seven complete circles, she suddenly
turned and headed for the land. She
was sinking, for both shot and shell
had reached her with fearful effects on
ship and cre-v. A-British yacht, the
Deerhound, which had come out to see
ihe fight, came up In, time to save
about 40 of th? crew M they 'Jumped
for their lives. The last shot was fired
as she went down, it was a glorious
victory. We can say i with a clear
conscience, now, as the Dally News waa . ...
