HISTORY OF THE GLORIOUS
STORMING OF TRIPOLI.
Docntur and Homers Led the Asvmlt
on the l'lrate'* Stronghold—The Duel
—What Troubled the Landlord — A
Storming of Tripoli.
Mrs. Molly Elliot Seawell, in her
story of the gallant careers of Decatur
and Somers, gives this account of the
storming of Tripoli in the St. Nicholas:
On the morning of August 3, 1804,
began that immortal series of five as
saults on the town, the fortresses and
the fleets of Tripoli that was destined
to forever destroy the pirati
cal and barbaric power. The force of
the Americans was but little. With
one heavy frigate, the glorious old
Constitution, three brigs, three
schooners, two bomb vessels, and
three gunboats manned by 1,030 of
ficers and men, Commodore Preble
stood boldly in to attack the town de
fended by the bashaw’s castle, not
less than a dozen powerful forts, a
fleet of three cruising vessels, two
galleys and nineteen gunboats,
manned by 25,000 Turks and Arabs.
The harbor was, moreover, protected
by a line of shoals and reefs perfectly
well known to the Tripolitans, but
very imperfectly known to the Amer
icans. and which the Constitution
could not approach closely without in
curring the fate of the unfortunate
Philadelphia. Put whatever “Old
Pepper’’ lacked in ships and guns, he
made up in men; for every soul on the
American fleet was worthy to serve
under the flag that flew from the
In considering the claims of his dif
ferent officers in leading the attack,
Commodore Preble had at last deter
mined upon Decatur and Somers. The
larger vessels were to cover the ad
vance of the gunboats, which were to
do the real fighting; and these gun
boats were divided into two divisions,
the first under Decatur, the second
As the two divisions of three gun
boats each formed and pulled awaj%
they saw two divisions of Tripolitan
boats, much larger, stronger, and
more fully manned, pull slowly out
from behind the line of reefs. The
windward division consisted of nine
gunboats, and the leeward of five,
while a reserve of five others lay just
inside the harbor, protected by the
As Somers took his place in the gun
boat, he said to the man at the tiller:
‘■Do you see that division of five
boats to leeward? Steer straight for
it, and get within pistol-shot of it,
when I will give you further orders.’
The breeze was easterly, and with
one lateen sail drawing well, the boat
was soon covering the distance be
tween her and her enemies across the
blue waters. The firing had begun,
and a terrific roar, as the Constitution
barked out all her guns in broadside,
showed that the ball was opened.
Somers watched until his boat was
abreast of the Tripolitans, when,
himself sighting the one long gun
amidships, he fired, and saw the shot
had instant and terrible effect.
Somers turned round and saw the
next boat to his, under Lieutenant
lilake. a .brave young officer, drawing
off, obeying a signal of recall which,
however, was made by mistake from
the flag-ship, and the very next mo
ment the third boat, commanded by
James Decatur, caught a puff of wind
that brought her head round and car
ried her directly into the other di
vision of boats, which was dashing
forward to attack the nine Tripolitan
“Very well,” said Somers, with his
usual calm smile, “as Decatur says,
the fewer the number the greater the
honor! So we will go ahead, boys.”
The sailors gave a cheer, and in an
other moment they were under fire of
the five gunboats. The situation of
Somers was now critical in the ex
treme, but he gave no sign of it in bis
manner, which was as cool as if he
were at anchor in a friendly port. He
opened a stead}' and well directed fire
that soon began to weaken the attack
of the Tripolitan boats, and not one of !
them dared to come near enough to
attempt boarding him. Still, he was
drawing nearer and nearer the bat
teries. Commodore Preble, who was
watching him from the Constitution’s
“Look at that gallant fellow, Som
ers. I would recall him, but he would
never see the 'signal.”
At that the commodore heard a boy
ish voice at his elbow, and there stood
little Pickle Israel.
“If you please, sir,” said he, with
the air of one making a great discov
ery, “I don’t believe Mr. Somers
wants to see any signal.”
“You are right, my boy,” cried Old
Pepper, who was in high good humor
over the gallant behavior of his
“school-boy captains;” “but at least
he shall be supported.”
With that he gave orders, and the
ship, advancing slowly, but as stead
ily as if working into the roadstead of
a friendly port, delivered a tremen
dous fire upon the batteries that were
now trying to get the range of the
daring little boat.
In spite of Somer’s efforts to keep
from drifting too far toward the reefs
and the reserve squadron, by backing
his sweeps astern, he soon found him
self under the guns of one of the
large forts. The Constitution was
thundering at the forts, but this one
was a little too near, and her shot fell
orer it. The situation of Somers was
now desperate, but his indomitable
coolness stood him in good stead.
“If we can knock the platform down
| that holds these guns, my men, we
I shall be all right,” he cried; “and
I see, it is very rickety.”
Then ordering a double charge put
! in the long gun, lie sighted it him
[ self. A shot .vent screaming over the
1 water, and immediately a cloud of
dust, brick, and mortar showed them
it had struck the right spot. The
platform was destroyed, and the
Lattery tumbled down among the
Somers then turned his attention to
the five gunboats, that he could now
drive still closer to the reef, and on
which every shot from his boat was
And so, for an hour longer, did the
little American boat, with lier one
gun, her resolute young captain, and
her brave crew, hold in cheek a force
five times her own; and not until a
general recall was ordered did she
leave her perilous position, and retire
under the guns of the frigate.
A Strange Friendship.
Chickens and cats, collectively, are
not considered the most congenial
companions. A strange exception to
the enmity that usually exists be
tween the feline and feathery tribes
is to be found in Mount Vernon, 111.,
in the household of a photographer,
where the family cat, with an instinct
of maternal solicitude rarely exhibit
ed in animals for the young of other
species, took into her fold of newly
born kittens a little orphan chicken,
cherishing it as one of her own off
spring. The little waif was accidental
ly east upon the world, the egg which
contained it being hatched in an un
accountable way, without the warmth
always given by the mother hen.
The little kittens and their adopted
sister thrived in peace and harmony
together. Of course, the little
stranger did not eat at the same table
with the rest of the family, but found
its nourishment from little insects,
worms and crumbs. But they basked
in the sunshine under the same ma
ternal guidance, and warmed on cold
nights at the same motherly breast.
The strangest part of all was when
the kittens arrived at maturity the
old cat parted with them without a
murmur, while nothing, it seems, can
sever the ties that bind her to the
chicken, now grown to stately hen
Tho gingham dog and the calico cat
Side by side on the table sat
Twas hall past twelve and what do you think,
Neither of them had slept a wink!
And the old Dutch clock and the Chinese
Seemed to know, as sure as fate.
There was going to be an awful spat.
(I wasn’t there—I simply state
What was tijjd t? me by the Chinese plate )
The gingham dog went ‘’bow-wow-wow:”
And the calico cat replied "me ow!"
And the air was streaked for an hour or so,
With fragments of gingham and calico.
While the old Dutch clock in the chimney
Up with its hands upon its face,
For it always dreaded a family row:
(Now mind. I'm simply telling you
What the old Dutch clock declares is true )
The Chinese plate looked very blue
And wailed: "Oh, dear: what shall we do?”
But the gingham dog an-l the calico cat
Wallowed this way and tumbled that
And utilized every tooth and claw
In the awfulest wav you ever saw—
And oh, how the gingham and calico flew:
(Don’t think that I exaggerate—
I rot my news from the Chinese plate. >
Next morning, where the two had sat
They found no trace of the dog or cat;
And some folks think unto this day
That burglars stole that pair away
But the truth about that cat and pup
Is that they ate each other up—
Now, what do you really think of that?
(The old Dutch clock, it told me so.
And that is how I came to know >
Chicago’s Midget Dog.
S. Goldsmith of this city has a dog
which is the admiration of all who
have seen him since he grew large
enough to be seen without the aid of
a microscope. He is of Mexican breed
and of the variety that never sheds
hair, for the reason that he never has
any to shed.
The dog in question was born three
weeks ago, and there were two- others
born at the same time. In the three
weeks lie has managed to grow to the
length of one inch and to attain the
weight of a trifle over one-quarter of
an ounce. The little fellow has a
soup bowl for his kennel and appar
ently enjoys life in a large wad of
cotton which constitutes his bed and
feeding ground. The cotton is sat
urated with cream and the dog ex
tracts the moisture when he is hun
gry. Mr. Goldsmith does not expect
that his midget will ever be much of a
fighter, but he says that he will
‘■back” him for any amount against
any other dog of his size and weight.
He will even concede the adversary a
quarter of an ounce. The mother of
the dog is scarcely three inches tall.—
What Troubled Him.
The habit potentates have of travel
ing incog. frequently causes suffering
where it is least expected. It is told
of the Emperor Joseph Second, that
once while traveling in this fashion,
he put up at an inn kept by an Eng
lishman. After eating a few slices, of
ham and biscuit, he went to bed. In
the morning he paid his bill and de
parted. A few hours after several of
his suite arrived,and hearing the-rank
of his .guest, the landlord appeared
“Pshaw, man!” said one; “Joseph is.
accustomed to such adventures, and
will think no more of it.”
“Bnt I shall,” said mine host, “and
never forgive myself for having haul
an emperor in my house and letting
him off for three and sixpence!”-—
