In the enrly months of the Rebellion S'Unvns
ton boasted half a dozen privateers, some tw
or three steamers, and a few Improvised ssiling
craft, who for a time annoyed and captured litt.e
coasting craft as they hugged in along shore in
pasting to and from the West Indies; but the
presence of a few well-armed gunboat soon put
a Hop to these petty piracies, and these craft
were convened into blockadc-ruuners, and for a
time tbey were busily employed io running out
cotton, turpentine, and rice. Finally the fnil
