what difficult to collect all the facts. On the water, where we have been peculiarly successful, the official accounts more iully and explicitly state the loss, as well as the comparative skill and bravery of the contending parties.

In the list of public and private vessels taken from the enemy during the war, we have not given the whole number of men and guns, on board of a large proportion of the merchant vessels, as it was never officially stated. In every instance of this kind, where we could not obtain cor. rect information, we have left the number blank.

We are sorry to say it is wholly out of our power to accompany the list of prizes with a correct list of the vessels we have lost; the enemy liever having made a public statement of their prizes, we could not collect them from any authentic source.
