WILLIAM BARKER CUSHING (1842-1874), American naval officer, born in Delafield, Wisconsin, on the 4th of November 1842.
Cushing was distinguished by his readiness to volunteer, his indefatigability, and by his good fortune, the reward of vigilance and intelligence.
Lieutenant Cushing undertook the attack on her with a steam launch carrying a spar-torpedo and towing an armed cutter.
He and the few men with him were compelled to take to the water; one was killed, another was drowned, Cushing and one other escaped, and the rest were captured.
Cushing himself swam to the swamps on the river bank, and after wading among them for hours reached a Federal picket boat.

CALEB CUSHING (1800-1879), American political leader and lawyer, was born in Salisbury, Massachusetts, on the 17th of January 1800.
He served in this body from 1835 until 1843, and here the marked inconsistency which characterized his public life became manifest; for when John Tyler had become president, had been "read out" of the Whig party, and had vetoed Whig measures (including a tariff bill), for which Cushing had voted, Cushing first defended the vetoes and then voted again for the bills.
From 1874 to 1877 Cushing was United States minister to Spain.
