USS Corypheus (1862) was a schooner captured by the Union Navy during the American Civil War. Corypheus was used by the Union Navy primarily as a gunboat to patrol navigable waterways of the Confederacy in order to prevent the South from trading with other countries. She carried a 30-pounder rifled gun, powerful enough to stop a blockade runner, and a howitzer for riverside bombardment. The Confederate yacht Corypheus was captured by Calhoun 13 May 1862 in Bayou Bonfuca, Louisiana. Taken by the Navy she was assigned to tender duty for the bark Arthur off Aransas Pass, Texas, 12 June 1862, commanded by Acting Master A. T. Spear.
