Extract: "The victorious frigate warped out, followed by the captured prize, whose topmast and topgallant-mast having been struck on different parts, and the yards topped up and down, and braced about, made her appear in all the confusion of a vessel much cut up by shot. Lastly succeeded the boats towing out the prizes in different directions ; the latter part of the entertainment being plainly visible by the glare cast from the flaming hull of an old lighter, prepared for the purpose and set on fire. As the flames flickered and towered toward the sky the spectators anxiously watched to see her blowup."
