The National Intelligencer hus been
furnished with the following letter,
written by Raphael Semmes, late
Admiral iu the Confederate Navy,
the commander of the rebel cruiser
Ahibama, and who is now awaiting
trial at Washington:
MOBILE, AXA., Aug. 12, 1865.
MY DEAR BBOTHEII: The cessation
of the war leaves mc nt liberty to re?
new my correspondence with you,
without subjecting you to suspicion
and annoyance; and I need not say
to yon how grateful to the yearnings
of "heart is this long suspended pri?
vilege. You have boon frequently in
my thoughts during our unfortunate
struggle, and I have often felt much
solicitude on your account, lost a part
of the odium und ill-will which a
zealous performance of my duty has
called down upon my head from a
"mad nation," should attach to you
and your family, and operate to your
injury. Indeed, I have no doubt but
that the prejudice against me v us tia
secret of the barbarous and malignant
persecution of your son, of which I
heard only a few days since from my
wife's friend and relation, Mrs. Jud;.
Spencer, of Cincinnati. I have never
inquired as to your opinions and con?
duct during the war, being content to
leave you the same liberty o? choice
and action that I claimed for myself.
I knew that whatever you did. you
would do like a man of honor, and I
rested satisfied. Besides, you had
been for some time retired from active
life by your want of health. As for
myself, I have nothing to regret,
save only the loss of our indepen?
dence. My conscience, which is the
only earthlv tribunal of which a good
man should be afraid, bears" me
witness of the uprightness of my in?
tention in choosing my course when,
with many regrets, I severed my
connection with the old Government
and hastened to the defence ol' my
home and section; and now, upon
reviewing the whole of my subse?
quent career, I can see no act with
which I have to reproach myself as
unbecoming a man of honor and a
gentleman. 1 approved tin: secession
movement of the Southern States,
though I had no agency in it. I
thought that a separation of those
two sections of our Republic, which
had been engaged in deadly moral
. conflict for thirty years, would ulti?
mately result to the great advantage
of them both. The world was wide
enough for them to live apart, and
peace, I thought, would be the fruit
of their mutual independence o? each
other. Although I cared very little
about the institution of slavery, I
thought that the subordinate position
of the inferior race was its proper
position. I believed that the doc?
trine of States lights was the only
doctrine which would save our re?
public from the fate of all other Re?
publics that had gone before us in
the history of the world. I believed
this doctrine had been violated, and
that it would never be sufficiently
respected by the controlling masses
of the Northern section to prevent
them from defacing with sacrilegious
hands our national bond of Union
wheresoever its letter was meant to
guard the peculiar rights of tin;
South. Believing this, then! w as but
oui; course which a faithful Southern
man could pursue, and maintain his
self-respect. .1 pursued that course.
When the alternative was presented
to me of adhering to the allegiance
to my native State, or to the United
States,^ chose the former. Having
^'"SI'IHB'v side, 1 gave it zealous and
ipport. I spent four years
ervice, and only ceased to
ny cause when it was no
longer: possible. I rendered this
service without ever having treated a
prisoner otherwise than humanely,
and, I may say, often kindly; and
without ever having committed an
oct of - war at any time, or in any
manner, which was not sanctioned by
thc laws of war ; yet my name will go
down to posterity in untruthful his?
tories that will be written by bigoted
and venal historians as a sort of Blue?
beard ox Captain Ki ld. But I am
content, my brother. My conscience
Ls clear; my self-respect has been
preserved, and my sense of manhood
remains unimpaired. I think, too,
the South will be content, notwith?
standing ber immenso losses and
sacrifices. Lf she had yielded to the
intolerant exactions of Northern
selfishness and fanaticism, without
appealing to the arbitrament of war,
slie would have played a craven and
unworthy part. It is better to lose
everything we possess than our honor
and manhood. I know you will be?
lieve me, my brother, when I tell you
that I .should feel greatly humbled in
my own opinion, were I this day
entitled to wear an admiral's Hag iu
thc old navy, and in possession of all
the means and appliances of wealth,
if I thought my honors and rewards
had been gained by a sacrifice of
en cd. The preservation of my own
sell-respect is infinitely preferable to
all such gains. I have come out of
the war poor, but, (rod willing, I
shall make a support for my family.
The President treats me as an outlaw,
unworthy of amnesty. I have noth?
ing to say. If I am deemed unworthy
to be a citizen, I can remain in my
native; land as an alien. A magnani?
mous people would have passed au
act of general amnesty, it lieiug
absurd and ridiculous to talk about
rebels and traitors iu connection with
such a revolution as has swept over
the length and breadth of this land,
in which States, and not individuals
merely, were the actors. But enough
of this subject. 1 am still in Mobile,
but it i.s yet uncertain where I shall
go, or what I shall do. If I save five
or six thousand dollars out of the
wreck of my affairs, it will be fully as
much as I expect. I think of retiring
into thc country, where, upon a
small farm, I eau live in obscurity
and peace the few years that remain
to me. My children are all grown,
aro well educated, and will be able, if
the worst comes to the worst, to take
care of themselves.
Remember me kindly to your
family, my dear brother, and let me
hear from yon. We have become old
men. We have both had our troubles,
but the chain of affection which binds
me to you remains unaffected by the
cares of the world, and as bright now
as when we slept iu each others' arms.
Your affectionate brother,
R. SEMMES.
