If the Government of tho United Slates does not

To the lTon. Jubn Forsyth,

Sia: On the 11th of September last I had the
honor, a 1 was authorized, lo read to yon a des
patch, which his excellency the Minister of For
eign Affairs had addressed to mr on Iho 17th of
June previous, rospecting the slalo of tho relation
between France and tho United State. Tho oh
icct nf l In communication uas tn make known to
lie Cabuiot of Wasiu lgloii, ma form often om
ployed, the point of now from which the King's
Government regarded 'ho difficulties between tho
two countritts, and to indlcat tho means by which,
in ile opinion, they might be terminated in a man
ner honorable to both Government. 1 was also
authorised to allow you, in cao you should desiro
it, to take a copy of I his despatch; but contrary to
i he expectation which diplomatic usage in such ca
se permitted me to entertain, you thought proper
to refuse to request it.
1 legrettcd this resolution of yours, sir, nt the
time, because in the first place it appeared lo he at
variance with (t'ecarter de) that conciliatory spirit
which so particularly characterized tho communi
cation just innilo to you; and next, as it seemed in
a manner lo deprive the Cabinet of Washington nf
the means of knowing, in their full extent, the
views of tho King's Government, of which an at
tentive examination of tho I uko dn Broghe's letter
could alone havo enabled it to form n just estimate.
Those regrets, sir, have not diminished, and at tiio
moment when tho l'residont is about tn communi
cato to Congress the stnto of the relations between
Franco and the United St&tc, I consider it useful
and necessary, for tlio interests of nil, to endeavor
to placo him in possession of all the facts which
may afford him the mcutis of giving un exact ac
count of tho real disposition and viows of tho King's
Government on tho subject of the existing difficul
ties. With this intention, and from a desiro to neglect
nothing which, by offering to tho American Gov
ernment another opportunity of nuking itself ac
quainted minutely with the highly conciliatory sen
timents ofhis Majesty's Governmont, may contrib
ute to restore good understanding between the Cab

tho assurance of the high consideration A'ith which
I havo tho honor, kc.

Washington, 3d Doc. 1330.
Sir : I had yesterday tho honor to receive your
note ol tho 1st instant, with tho accompanying pa
per, purporting to bo a copy of a lottor. addressed,
uudurdatc of tho I7th of Juno last,by his excellen
cy tlio IJuko do Uroglio, .Minister ot Foreign Af
fairs of France, lo yourself.
After referring to what occurred in our interview
of tho lllh of September, in regard to the original
lottor, and expressing your regrotn at tlu course I
then fell it my duty lo tako, you request mc to
placo thu copy enclosed in your letter under thu
oyc of the I'rcKidcut.
In allowing you, during that intorviow, lo road
to mo the Duko do Broglie's despatch, which I
cheerfully did, you wore enabled to avail yourself
oi mat intormal moiic oi apprizing this Department
of iho viewg of your Government in tho full extent
authorized by diplomatic usasc. Tho question
whether or nut I should ask a copy of that despatch,
was, of CLiirso, left as it should havo been bv your
Governmont, exclusively to my discretion. My
reasons, for not making that request, worn frankly
Mated to you, founded on a conviction thai, in tho
existing state of thu relations, between tho two
eountrip?, tho President would think it most prop
er that every communication upon tho subject in
difference between them, designed to influence his
conduct, bhould, before it was submitted to his con
sideration, bo made to assume tho otlicial form bo
longmg to a direct communication from ono Govern
ment to another, by which alana ho could be ena
bled lo cause a suitable reply to bo given to it, and
to submit it, should such a step become necessary,
to his associates in the Government. I had alio
the honor, at tho tame lime, to assure you, that
any direct column dcation from yourself, as the rep
resentative of tho King's Governmeut, lo mc, em
bracing the contents of this despatch, nr any other
matter you might bo authorized to communicate in
tho accustomed mode, would be laid without delay
bnliirn il.o tuil..i, ..tjiu miuomuuiiij
cuivc from him an early and just consideration.
It cannot havo escaped vour reflections that my
duty required that tho circumstances of tho inter
view between us should be reported lo tho Presi
dent, and that tlio discovery of nny error on my
part, in representing his viows of the course proper
to be pursued on that occasion would, without fall,
havo been promptly communicated to you. That
duty was performod. Tho substanco of our fntor
viow, and tho rcaon by which my course in it had
been guiuod, wore immediately communicatod to,
and entirely approved by him. I could not, there
fore, have anticipated that, after so long a ;oriod
had elapsed, and without any change in tho condi
tion of otTairs, you should have regarded it as use
ful or proper to revive tho subject at tho lime and
in tho form you have seen fit to adopt. Cordially
reciprocating, however, tho conciliatory sentiments
oxprestedin your note, and in deferenco to your re
quest, 1 havo again consulted the Prcidcnt cn the
sujoct, and am instructed to inform you that the
opinion expressed by me in tho interview between
u. and subsequently confirmed by him, remains un-i
changed ; and I therefi.ro respectfully restore
to you the copy of the Duko do Uroglio'. letter,
a I cannot mako tho use of il ubirb i ,1 i
I am alto in.lructed to asy tbat tho President
enterUios a decided conviction that a departure, in

particulars of tho assault and capture of San
Antonio do Htuar, by the To.xians. On
Saturday, the 5th Dec. 300 of the Colonial
troops entered 'the town of Son Antonio un
der tho command of Col. It. Milam. They
could not at first get possession of the pub
lic square owing tho the walls and ditches a
cross the mouths of the strccts,cach of which
was likewise defended by two pieces of Ar
tillery, and in consequence of this, they oc
upicd some buildings and tops of houses ad
jacent. Here they remained batling un
ceasingly night and day, until Wednesday
tj Oth, when they forced their way into the
square and diovo tho enemy ncross the riv
er into their fort called the "Alamo."
In llieso ruIntrVo situations thoy continued
untilThursday 10th, whon the enemy capit
ulated. By tho capitulation upwards of 1000 yiel

surrendered with 24 pieces of biass artillery,
11)00 rounds of powder, ball, grape and can

sufficient in Texas to carry the wnr, if ne
