Two More Blockade-Runners Captured

MARCH 3RD, 1865:  The USS Glide captured the schooner Malta in Vermilion Bayou, Louisiana, with a cargo of cotton.

The USS Honeysuckle sighted the sloop Phantom as she attempted to enter the Suwannee River on the west coast of Florida.  An armed boat from the ship overhauled and captured the blockade runner and her cargo of bar iron and liquors.
