The U.S.S. Penguin had captured the schooner Albion, formerly the Lucy R. Waring of Baltimore, near Edisto Island, off the coast of South Carolina, after a three hour chase on the morning of November 25, 1861. Found to be running the Charleston blockade with arms, ammunition, and other military supplies, a prize crew under Master's Mate George N. Hood sailed the seized vessel into New York.  (By John Osborne)
