Darlington, built at Charleston, S.C., in 1849, was probably employed by the Confederate Army along the Florida coast. She was captured by launches of USS Pawnee under Comdr. C. R. P. Rodgers on 3 March 1862 while trying to escape with military wagons, mules, and stores from Fernandina, Fla., when that town fell to the Union. She was transferred to the U.S. Army for use as a transport.
