For a time housed over, she was launched on 17 September 1864, commissioned on 3 June 1867 at Boston, and on 28 June sailed from New York as flagship of Admiral David Farragut who assumed command of the European Squadron. Relieved by Ticonderoga she arrived back in New York on 10 November 1868.Her second European cruise, beginning on 28 January 1869, was as flagship for Rear Admiral William Radford. She served with the European Squadron until 30 September 1871 when she sailed for the United States. On 13 November 1871 she was decommissioned at Boston.Recommissioned on 15 December 1873, she sailed on the North Atlantic Station. On 11 April 1874 she stood out to sea to join the European Squadron as flagship until 14 September 1876.
