Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XLIV. The Alabama Leaves Fernando De Noronha For A Cruise On The Coast Of Brazil -- Enters The Great Highway And Begins To Overhaul The Travellers -- Capture Of The Whaler Nye; Of The Dorcas Prince; Of The Union Jack; Of The Sea Lark -- A Reverend Consul Taken Prisoner Alabama Goes Into Bahia -- What Occurred There -- Arrival Of The Georgia Alabama ProCeeds To Sea Again Captures The Following Ships: The Gilderslieve; The Justina; The JaBez Snow; The Amazonian, And The Talisman.

The boatmen stripped themselves like athletes for the fray, and as whale-boat after boat was cut adrift, there was a pulling and splashing, a paddling and a screaming that defy all description; the victors waving their hats, and shouting their victory and their good-bye to us, in the same breath. We steamed due east from the island some forty miles, when we let our steam go down, raised the propeller, and put the ship under sail. The Alabama, with full coal-bunkers and a refreshed crew, was again in pursuit of the enemy's commerce I had at last accomplished my cherished design -- which had been frustrated in the Sumter--of a cruise on the coast of Brazil....
