The .32 S&W short and long actually didn't have much of either - velocity or energy! Seriously though, Frank Barnes in his "Cartridges of the World" lists the factory black powder loads as follows:

.32 S&W (short) - 9.0 grains Fg at 680 fps for 90 ft-lbs of energy. (85 grain lead bullet)

.32 S&W Long - 13.0 grains Fg at 780 fps for 132 ft-lbs of energy. (96 grain lead bullet)

I find Fg black powder to be a rather coarse granulation to choose for this small caliber, but that's what it says.
