Columbian Centinel, April 22, 1815
Description:
Columbian Centinel, No. 3,239, printed in Boston, Massachusetts on Saturday, April 22, 1815. An article on page 1, column 4, includes a copy of Lieutenant Beekman V. Hoffman's letter informing the Secretary of the Navy that USS Constitution captured HMS Cyane and HMS Levant on February 28, 1815. The letter briefly describes the engagement and the captured ships. Hoffman particularly recommends Midshipmen Joseph Cross, James Delany, and James P. Curtis for bravery during the battle. An article on page 1, column 5, ttitled, "Celebration of Peace," is about a celebration of the end of the War of 1812 in Waltham, Massachusetts. The article includes toasts given at the celebration. The first toast celebrates the United States Navy and, in particular, Commodore William Bainbridge and Captain Isaac Hull. A short article on page 2, column 2, reports a man's claim that the prize ship HMS Levant had been attacked at St. Jago. The article calls this claim "improbable."
