Year after year, too, while the loiterers sit and gaze, now at the blue sky, now. at the softly rolling breakers which are evec as blue, they uk the captain to tell them the story of tho Merrimac and the Monitor (Ight. MERIUMAO AND MOiaTOR. CFrom "Loesing's Civil War."l The captain was the pilot of tho Merrimac tliat day, off Hampton roods, March 0, 1803. The- Merrimae was a lino new steam frigate. Tyjien the United States ofllccr, Commodore .IfcCuuloy, set flre to his own government's navy yard at Norfolk and burned tho ships, the Merrimac was among those fired and loft to consume. This was April 81, 1861. Bnt' the:' Merrimac was not entirely destroyed. 8ho was burned to tho copper line, Then she sank. To raise her again, to fit her out as a war vessel, was not a task of very great difficulty for the Confederate government. Her exterior pattern was changed .somewhat, . In armor plating her, and otherwise fitting her for naval warfare, tho Confederates affixed to her bows a long, powerful iron beak. In brief, when the refitting was dono, and tho Uerrimac was turned out of the Norfolk or Portsmouth navy yard she became the steam ram Virginia, the terror of every United States ship afloat. Steaming up, head on, she was able to send her long, swordfisb beak crashing through the sides of the strongest wooden ship. Thus, attacking vessels one at a time, tho Virginia was prepared to vanquish tho whole United States navy and commercial marine. What is more, she had been fitted up in the United States government's own navy yard, of good iron and steel belonging to tho nation. The now pattern given to her was the idea of Lieut. John M. Brooks, himself a United States naval officer whjlmd takon tbo Confederate side, The battering ram or false bow ox- tended out ahead of her 33 feet. Bho hod two powerful engines below #ie water line. Her roof and sides Were covered with oak over two feet thick, and upon this was plated iron 6 inches through. The rain in front was also composed of oak and iron. The vessel waa armed with several great guns for those days, carrying shot of from 80 to 100 pounds, and a 180-pound shell. ': Such was tho ram Virginia. She I» better known, however, the world over, by her for* mer name, the Merrimao, and that Is Iho name which will ba used In this story. Last but not least, sha was directed by ex- United HNitx« ofllcers, men who had been among the bravest and most experienced in tbe Union navy. Her com- mandor was Capt, Franklin Buchanan. Ho had been thirty-live years in tho United Sbites navy, Tho Merrimao had been on the tongue of rumor for weeks. Four ships of tho Federal «»vj la> m Hamp- tou roads watching her. They wore tho vtciun frigates Minmwotn and Koanoke, and tho sailing frigates Cumberland and Congress. Thu appearance of tho Merrimac hud come to bo looked on as something of a joke. Van Brunt, captain of tho MlnniMotu, wrote borne : • "Wo arc 'tired of waiting for tho Morrinmo and wish aho would come out." H» had Ills vrUh presently to bis heart's content Hampton rends U an Inlet of Chesapeake bay, between Fortress Monroe and Norfolk. Tbe James river empties into it, also tho (Sllzabotb, on which tho navy yard lias. Thu lay or Indentation got* it* name of "roads," or a roadstead for bhlps, on account of Its depth of water, being Knrooly any whore leas thau twenty-three feet K U about flve miles across. The Federal vossuUi lay about the roods not very near together. "The Minnesota and the Roanolto were beiv near Fonr«* Moniw, tho Cumberland and Congress wore off yonder south, near tba mouth of tbe Elizabeth river," mys th» cap- OAPT. (From Losing's "Civil M'(ir."] tes Mi cral Ing totn. About noon, Saturday, March 8, the Federal lookouts /saw wmrthlng coming down tbe Elizabeth river, It was, in fact; three things, a« they pr«Miit!ymo»*d nearer. It was three steamers. Two of thorn were Ordl- nary gunboat?. The other was a Queer looking .ft. appearing like the roof of a totrn steam- • „• down rtream. .Was thUUie ilorrimaol The little fleet came steaming down the river and out into tbe roads. Quickly tho Mimie- iK>ta and the Roanokb made rendy to meet the newcomers. The queer craft was the Merrimac at lust. The Hoalioko had a broken lhaft. She had to be towed out into tbo. water by tugs. It does not take long to tell the ctory of what followed. . The Minnesota grounded out of range of the Virginia, and could not bo got off, It was ebb tide. .Presently tho Hoanoko grounded at the stern. The United States navy was not worth much more then than it is noW. "' • • ,- ., The Congress 'and Cumberland were anchored nearest to tho coming monitor as shu Rteamed out of Elizabeth river.: There was some exchange of shots as tho Merrimac came booming oh.. One shot from her disabled several gunners on tho Cumberland. Tho Cumberland was swung broadslita across the channel, The Morrimac wont at her straight as an arrow and rammed her Iron book into the Cumberland's side. A great opening was made and water poured In n torrent into the Cumberland. Then tho Merrimao opened flre, Every shot hit'the mark, and tho decks of the wooden ship Wire soon covered with dead and injured. In three-quarters of an hour the mortally hurt ship went down in fifty-four f cot of water,carrying dead, dying and wounded with her. Some were picked up in boats from the shore and a few swam: to land. Tho Cumberland's topmast showed above water, with her flag still flying. It was tho turn of the Congress next Tho two companion gunboats of the Merrimac bad attacked her. Seeing tho fato of the Cumberland, Lieut. Pendergnst, commander of the Congress, ran her aground by means of tugs, in order to prevent tho Merrimac from sinking her. The Merrimac, after sinking tbe Cumberland began pouring shot Into the Congress. The aim of tbo Confederates was marvelonsly accurate. Tho firing from the Congress had no effect on tho Merrimac's sloping iron sides. At 4:80 Lieut Pendorgast, seeing all was over, hauled down the stars and stripes, and ran up a whito flag in token of surrender. The Confederates sent a tug to take formal possession, But the Congress waa under shelter of the Union batteries at Newport Nows, and they opened fire and dtove the tug off. It is said they did not see the white flag. Then the Merrimac hot shot into the poor old ship again. Presently she left her ami bore down upon the Minnesota. In this interval, the.crew of the Congress, what there were left of them, escaped to shore in tho boats. Next morning, of tho 434 brave men and true who had composed her crew, only half answered to their names at roll call. The rest were killed, wounded and missing. There had come into Hampton Roads on Friday, March 6, tho naval ship St Lawrence, a sailer. Boning how the battle was going, she had herself towed toward the grounded Minnesota, and presently she herself grounded. Together tho two helpless vessels waited the onslaught of tho iron beaked monster. There seems to have been inexplicable Ignorance of the channels on the part of tho Federal pilots. The. Roanoke, tbo Minnesota and the 8L Lawrence all ran aground. The St. Lawrence fired a broadside at tho Morrimac, which did not the slightest harm. The Merrimac fired one single shell at the St. Lawrence. It wont through the wooden chip like a bolt of .lightning. Then the St. Law renco. hors du combat, stole oft likd a wblpped animal up toward Fortress Monroe. It was getting dark. The ram and her at temlant gunboats drew off from tho light and steamed to Sewell's point, where they anchored. The hot shot the ram had thrown last Into the Con^rcsj had been for tho purpose of setting flre to her.. This object was accomplished. The battered ship burned to tho water's edge. About midnight tho llrcs reached her powder magazine, when she blew up with a tremendous roar, and that was the end of tho Congress. "Harper's Pictorial Hlstory"says of tho Merrimac: "No vessel (hat ever flou'.«d had ever dona so grunt, n work in a single half day. She had destroyed two powerful vessels, carrying three times her number of men, and fully six times her weight of armament." The Federal vessels lost quite 253 men that 8th of March, 1803, •tho Confederates only 10.

About midnight a strange small craft came and anchored beside the Minnesota. The Confederates who saw her next morning said afterwards sbo looked like a black plank with a Yankee cheese box on top. The mysterious small flat object was John Ericsson's Monitor nod this was her trial trip. She had como into the roads that night just in tlrna to hear the hut of the cannonading. , Her commander was Lieut, John L. Warden, U. S. N. Tho "Yankee choeso box" that the Confederates saw was a revolving tower or turret, twenty feot in diameter and ten foot high, bomb proof. Inside woro two 11-lnnh l)ahl- •gron cannon, whluh could bo turned and aimed in any diructlon through tho portholes of the towor. Tho guns woro revolved with power from tho double cylinder onglno that propelled Iho boat.

Sunday, Atarch 0, about Oo'cloak in tho morning, the eloping roof of the tremendous ram loomed up .through the hazo, and bore uown upon tho Mlnneso.ta. With her wore hor attendants of'the day before, the Confederate gunboats Patrick Henry, Jiunes- to<vn, ; Halelghj Beaufort' nntl Tenser. Together they carried eleven . gnus.

The gray boarded captain at; Old Point Comfort tells it as though i i happened yesterday. 'The Monitor was only one-fifth tho size of .tbe. Merrimac and of very much 'lighter draft' ' ''' Tho Merrimnc steamed up past tho Minnesota toward Fortress -Monroe. Then she turned and • prepared to come straight' at the Minnesota. IKTERIOK OF MONITOR. tFronil/osslng'B "Civil War In America."] , The little Monitor i followed In her'wake, and when the Morrimao turned her iron benk forward,,there was the.cheese box directly between her and the Minnesota. Tho stern guns of tho Minnesota opened on tho ram, but Bho was invulnerable. It hor sides had been perpendicular, some of tho flfty great shots ,which struck her from Capt. Van Brunt's guns on the Minnesota, must have penetrated her. As the ram approached, the little Mont- tor's turret-guns began to revolve and flre. The ram angwered:with a tremendou? broadside, Ono conical shot from tho huge Armstrong gun penetrated the Monitor's turret part way, but the bolt broke oil and remained sticking between, tho bars of railroad iron, bent and flattened. Tha rolic fa still preserved. Other shot from the ram flew around and over tho Monitor without oITeot. The littlo raft steamed around and around lier ponderous foo, socking a point of attack. But there was none. They pounded nt each other tremendously, neither hurting tho other. Tho Men-linnc, finding sho had mndo no impression on the Monitor, turned her guns once more upon tho Merrimao and mado a Mtvage attack, which told terribly. At that moment tho littlo Monitor steamed up and placed herself between tho ram and the Minnesota. Tho Mcrrimae changed her position and onco more tho bis ram and tho littlo turret ship grappled : The Merrimao grounded and the Minnesota trained her guns directly upon hor. She got afloat and turned towards Norfolk, tho Monitor after her. Suddenly the' Merrimao turned like an animal maddened and headed with all her force directly at the Monitor, Booking to run her down. The iron beak gratecl over tho level deck, and tho little raft came up serenely ready for flght again. The Morrimao wus more damaged than hor antagonist. One heavy shot penetrated tho armor of thu ram. There was more maneuvering and more cannonading at close quarters, when suddenly the flring censed. The Merrimac and her attendant, fleet headod up tbe bay. At the same time the Monitor turned and steamed down the buy towards Fortress Monroe. That was tho ond of tlio famous duel between tho Mcrriniac and tho Monitor. Lieut. TVordon, In tho pilot house of the Monitor, was blinded by some cement which was thrown into his eyes by a shot which struck, s'quarely In tlio peephole. He wan takon to Washing- ington and tended carefully. Presi- MEHT. WOHDKN-. dent Lincoln visited, him, and wept at sight of iho blinded hero who had dono so much. Tho gallant officer finally recovered his night Nobody else in tho Monitor was hurt. . Tho Minnesota had been terribly shattered. A shot from tho Morrimao hail exploded tlio boiler of tho tug Dragon, scalding several men. Tbo Minnesota, by throwing overboard some guns and other heavy articles, nnd by attaching several more tugs to pull mid strain at her, got out of her mud bod Monday morning and wont up under tbo shelter of Fortress Monroe. In tlio two days' fighting tbo Federal forces lost nearly -100 men and two valuable •ililris; tho Confederate forces lost thirteen men.
