2nd USS Boxer

The second USS Boxer was a 10-gun schooner, launched on 22 November 1831 by the Boston Navy Yard and commissioned sometime in 1832 with Lt. Benjamin Payne as the first Commanding Officer.

In 1832 and 1833 the Boxer cruised the Brazil Station and, in 1834 the West Indies Station. In 1835 to 1840 she had duty on the Pacific Station. The schooner went to sea between 1842 and 1844 with the Home Squadron and 1846 with the African Squadron with the primary mission of suppressing the slave trade. That assignment lasted until the summer of 1848 when she returned to the United States and was retired from service.
