Captain Hull covered with the Palm of glory bad generously left the frigate to Bain badge and it will seen in the sequel that he could not have left her in better hands. Tho writer of this sketch was once the intimate Friend and a confidential officer of that illustrious Man and though time and disease hid at that period borne heavily upon his Manly form and tipped with Silver his Raven locks Bainbridge was still a Noble Spe Cimen of the Stern old fire eaters of the Tnp Olitan War and possessed a vivid recollection of the scenes which trans Fred. When the Java lowered her lion Flag and Victory crowned Tho he was a of Sterling integrity of haughty Mien and of generous Ira Pul aes. He possessed great courage lofty enthusiasm a Quick temper. A Sharp Tongue. No Man Ever him twice who forgot him and no Man Ever knew him to his enemy twice who did not wish him to forget with an Eagle Eye he read men like books and like a skilful critic he Laid those carefully upon the shelf who were not suited to the purpose for which they were sent Forth. As we said before the Constitution made two sail to Windward one of whom continued to stand in while the min utes past 1, Commodore Bainbridge being satisfied with the offing he had made handed his royals tried up his Mainsail and tacked towards the ene. Soon after both ships had their Heads to the southward land eastward the English being a mile to Windward on the Constitution s Quarter. The enemy had now hauled Down his in sign though he Ket a Jack flying and Bainbridge like himself alone ordered a shot fired ahead of him to induce him to show his colors anew. This order settled the quaver ing and at 2, p. Furious cannons Ding took place which can Only described those who listened to it. As the enemy could make the most Light wind he soon forged ahead told Ironsides but was foiled the latter ship s which brought the two belligerents head and head to the West Ward. In manoeuvring the enemy steered free and old Ironsides the vessels got within pistol shot when the first repeated the the ships Wareing their Heads easterly7, As at first. The English frigate now tacked to preserve the but missing stays she was obliged to Man oeuvre that the Constitution had executed before to prevent being raked for her wheel hid been shot away and it was difficult to watch the vessel with the Helm As closely As was desirable. Notwithstanding this advantage the Constitution was the first in coming to the wind on the other tack arid an efficient raking fire told majesty s frigate when she came about. Both vessels now ran free with the wind on the Quarter the English ship still to Windward when the latter having received much damage made an attempt to close. At fifty five minutes past two the enemy ran Down upon the Constitution s Quarter but running her Jib Boom afoul of the Constitution s Mizzen Rig Ging. She suffered severely without ing Able to effect her purpose. Her Bowsprit Cap was soon shot away did in a few minutes her foremast will a Thun luring crash came the boar now shot ahead Bainbridge and lieutenant the last died of his injuries shortly after the Huzzah of Victory had the echoes of the deep. Commodore Bainbridge was wounded in the hip with a Musket Ball Early in the action and the shot that carried away the wheel of his vessel drove Copper Bolt into his thigh inflicting a severe and dangerous wound. He kept the notwithstanding until Midnight. The Constitution came out of this action scat Eless with a few slight except tons. No t so with the Java. She lost her act Peculiar gratification to Hull was greatly those no Ncnew him Best few indeed and her number of killed and wound were Ever More deserving of Public esed was unusually Large. According to from Hunt s merchants Magazino Memoir ofmath3w Carey. F Ezra a oldest. The characters of great and Good men belong to Mankind and there is no duty More pleasant lot useful than that which seeks the recognition of their Virtues and stimulates in after life to the imitation of their exam pie. I few men have Ever wan a Arger space Public regards than Mathew Carey land what constitutes that Commodore Bainbridge there were six of the former and one Hundred and one of the latter. According to the British published accounts there were but Twenty two of the former and one Hundred and two of the latter com Moore Bainbridge was undoubtedly Correct. Many anecdotes of personal bravery have been recorded As having occurred during this conflict. Where All were Brave no invidious distinctions need made. This action did that of the in naval gunnery the americans were Superior to the world. And All this talk about weight of Metal is All in if John Bull could not hit our vessels with a Twenty four Pound shot evidence is there that he would have hit them with a thirty two Pound shot the difference in size Between the two could not have exceeded two inches in diameter. So much for weight of met Al and English naval Flummer to off set the effects of american naval gun Nery. Throughout this whole Battle tons that should follow her glorious example.

But a very pleasant land unlocked for event gave new courage to his ropes if it did not indeed add a Bright co Oring to All his after career. We views of the roman catholics.

Whether fore Tell events or not is nothing to to avoid being raked and in separating j ten the tale As it was told to the stump of the enemy s Bowsprit ant the world May Bave it at the a and swept the american frigate s Taf frail. The two ships now br6ughl the wind abeam again with their Heads to the eastward. The Constitution fore reaching in consequence of her sur plus sail wore passed her antagonist puffed up under his Quarter pitched Mlo him a ton or two of cold Iron and wore again. Tie e igl Ishman not ing fond of those pills which were through not Only Daylight but which made the Daylight pass through him kept away. The Constitution however soon had him again and for a Short time the vessels Lay broadside and and while the surrounding atmosphere was Villej with lolling Clouds of sulphurous smoke and the gentle Billows of the Ocean blushed in blood. In a few moments away went the Mizzen Mast with the Banner of the haughty nothing but the Yulless mainmast standing Black with smoke and smeared with Gore. As the enemy s fire had ceased the Constitution hauled her tacks aboard and puffed athwart her antagonist s Bow passing out of the combat to wind Ward at five minutes past four with her to sails courses spanker and Jib set. In executing this manoeuvre com Moore Bainbridge was under the impression that the enemy had the Ensign which had floated from his mail Rigg is being Down his ship a wreck fire silenced. The Constitution having repaired damages and secured her masts per same Price namely giving their at Tention. Commodore Bainbridge As he Lay in his birth dreamed three times in succession during the night previous to the action that he fell in with and after a bloody encounter captured a British frigate having red Coats aboard her starboard Gangway was shot away and that the officers in coming on Board his vessel came Down the Lar Board the frigate equalled him in size and outnumbered him in her Mats were All shot that her commander was killed.

I i he states that his first essay As a writer was when he was about the age of seventeen and upon the Subjec of duelling. It was produced in Conse Quence of a1 hostile meeting Between a Low apprentice and the apprentice of a bookseller named Wogan. The difficulty grew out of a personal altercation Between the lads., which ended in blows. Wogan very impudently urged his apprentice to Send a Challenge to the opponent which was accordingly a meeting in the but stated them positively leaving the Blanks for the ship s name Comman on a certain Day and Wogan went Der s name Force and other minor things unfilled. The next Day the Java was captured and the Commodore merely filled up the Blanks of the let Ter and sent it to his wife As the first account of his Victory. After Landing his prisoners at St Salvador and refitting ship Commodore Bainbridge shaped his course for the United states and on the 27th of february 1831, anchored in the Harbour of Boston and was received at the Long wharf the City Council amid the shouts of the multitude the Thunder of t with his lad and was the master so Brit of the whole affair.
