155 Years Ago: The USS Commerce On Blockade Duty

APRIL 26TH, 1861:  The USS Commerce, Lt. Peirce Crosby, captured steamer Lancaster at Havre de Grace, Maryland.  He also pursued a steam tug "in obedience to the written orders that I had received from you [Commander Charles Steedman] to seize all tugs south of Havre de Grace," but could not catch her."

I have done some research, but can't find any mention of a USS Commerce Union ship.
