White was then temporarily In charge of the Kan- sas, about one-fourth the efficiency of the Pizarro. White sent word to the Spanish captain to give the Virglntus a free fleld. The Spaniard replied eva- ilvely. White ran his small -war- ship between the Pizarro and the Vir- glnius. The Spaniard cleared for ac- tion and ran his guns out. It seemed as if one broadside would utterly an- nihilate the Kansas. White ordered his vessel cleared for action and took a defiant position. One of tho most daring exploits of :hc civil war was that of James For- ney, who as a lieutenant -was sent ashore by Commander Bell at Texas on the Gulf coast to kill cattle for the crew of the Brooklyn. The men had completed their task when a body of Confederate cavalry was seen spinning along the beach. Forney's detachment signalled frantically for the ship's boats to be sent to take them off, but owing to a sudden shift in the tide this could not he done. When the cavalry was within a quarter of a mile Forney gave tbe order to plunge Into the surf he men having previously taken off heir clothing for the swim.
