The capture of the General Monk was one of the most brilliant achievements in naval history.  The General Monk mounted eighteen guns, and had one hundred and thirty-six men, and lost twenty men killed, and thirty-three wounded.  The Hyder Ally had sixteen guns, and one hundred and ten men, and lost four men killed, and eleven wounded.

All the officers of the General Monk were wounded except one.  The captain himself was severely wounded.  The brig which accompanied the enemy ran ashore to avoid capture.  Captain Barney now followed his convoy up to Philadelphia.  After a short visit to his family, he returned to his command, where he soon captured the “Hook-’em-snivy”—­a refugee schooner, which had done a great deal of mischief on the Delaware river.

These captures struck such terror among the privateers, that they began to disperse to more profitable grounds.  In consequence of the glorious actions, Captain Barney was presented with a gold-hilted sword, in the name of the state.
