Oar Claims on England-Speech of Charle*
The speech of Charlot Sumner, of Massa?
chusetts, in executive session of the Senato,
on April 13,1869, on the Johnson-Clarendon
treaty for the settlement of claims, is given
to the public, the iujnnotion of secrecy hav?
ing been removed by order of the Senate.
The speech is of great length, and opens
Mr. Sumner.-Mr. President, a report
recommending that the Senate do not ad?
vise and consent to a treaty with a foreign
power, duly signed by the plenipotentiary
of the nation, is of rare occurrence. Trea?
ties are often reported with amendments,
and sometimes without any recommenda?
tion, but I do not recall an inst unce, since I
came into the Senate, where such a treaty
has been reported with the recommendation
which is now under consideration. Tho
oharacter of the treaty seemed to justify the
I do not disguise the importance of this
act; but I believe that in the interest of
peace, which every one should have at heart,
the treaty must be rejected. A treaty which,
instead of removing an existing grievance,
leaves it for heart-burning and rancor, can
not be considered a settlement of pending
questions between two nations. It may
seem to settle them, but does not. It is
nothing but a snare. And such is the char?
acter of the treaty now before us. The
massive grievance under which our country
suffered for years is left nntouohed; tho
painful sense of wrong planted in the na?
tional hear is allowed to remain. For all
this, thsre is not one word of regret or even
of recognition; nor is there any semblance
of compensation. It cannot be for the in?
terest of either party that suoh a treaty
should be ratified.
It cannot promote tho interest of tho
United States, for wo naturally seek justice
as the foundation of a good understanding
with Great Britain; nor can it promoto tho
interest of Great Britain, which must also
seek a real settlement of all pending ques?
tions. Surely I do not err when I say that
a wise statesmanship, whether on our side
or on the other side, must apply itself to
find tho real root of evil, and, then, with
oourage tempered by candor and modera?
tion, see that it is extirpated. This is for
the interest of both parties, and anything
short of it is a failure.
Mr. Sumner then analyses the provisions
of the treaty, and say?:
While doing so little for us, the treaty
makes ample provision for all known claims
on the British side. As these are exclusively
"individual," they are completely covered
by the text, which has no limitations or ex?
ceptions. Already it is announced in Eng?
land that even thoso of "Confederate bond?
holders" are inelnded. I have before mo an
English journal which describes the latter
claims as founded on "immense quantities
of cotton, worth at the time of their seizure
nearly two shillings a pound, which were in
the legal possession of these bond-holders;"
and the same authority adds: "These claims
will be brought, indifferently with others,
before the designed joint commission, when?
ever it shall ait."
From another quarter I learn that these
bond-holders are "very sanguine of success
under thc treaty as il is worded, and certain it
is that the loan went up from 9 to IO, as
soon as it waa ascertained that tho treaty
was signed." I doubt if the American peo?
ple aso ready just now to provide for any
such claims. That they have risen in thc
market is an argument against the treaty.
Close upon the outbreak of our troubler,
just one month after the bombardment of
Fort Sumter, when the rebellion was still
undeveloped, when the National Govern?
ment was beginning those gigantic efforts
which ended so triumphantly, tho country
was startled by the news that the British
Government had intervened by a proclama?
tion which accorded belligerent rights to tho
rebels. At the carly date when this was
done, the rebels were, as they remained to
the close, without ships on the ocean, with?
out prize courts or other tribunals for the
administration of justice on the ocean
without any of those conditions whicJiare the
essential prerequisites to sucJt a concession; and
yet the concession was general, being appli?
cable to the ocean and the laud, so that by
British fiat they bocahio ocean belligerents
as weil as land belligerents. In the swift?
ness of this bestowal, there was very little
consideration for a friendly power; nor does
it appear that there waa any inquiry into
those conditions precedent on which it mu?t
depend. Ocean belligerency being a "fact,"
and not a "principio," can be recognized
I only on evidence showing it? ?c?u?t existence,
J according to tho rulo, first stated by Mr.
Canning, and afterward recognised by. Earl
j Russell. Bot no mich evidence wfts nd
dneed; for it did not exist and never -has
Had not the concession of belligerency
I boen made, no. rebel ship could have been
' built in Eugland. Every step in her build?
ing would have boen piracy. Nor could any
munitions of war nave been furnished. The
direct cons?quence of this concession was to
place th? rebels on an equality with ourselves
in nil British markets, whether of ships or
munitions of war. As these were opon to
the national government, so wore they opon
to the rebels. The nsserted neutrality be?
tween the two bogan by this tremendous
concession, when rebelH, ut* one stroke, wero
transformed not only into belligerents, but
The only justi?eation that I have hoard
for this extraordinary concession is that
President Lincoln undertook to proclaim a
! blockade of the rebel ports. By tho uso of
? this Word "blockade," tho concession is vin
1 dicated. Hud President Lincoln proclaimed
a closing of the rebel ports, there could havo
been no such concession. This is a more
But we must look at tho substauce and find
a reason in nothing short of overruling ne?
cessity. War cannot bo justified merely on
a technicality; nor can tho concession of
ocean belligerency to rebels without n port
or prize court. Such a concession, like was
itself, must bo at the peril of the nation
The British assumption, besides being
offensive from mero technicality,is inconsist?
ent with the proclamation of the President,
taken as a whole, which, while appointing a
blockade, is careful to reserve the rights of
sovereignty, thus putting foreign powers on
their guard against any premature conces?
Mr. Sumner considers this branch of the
subject at length. Tho " matter of repara?
tion " and the " extent of our losses" aro
entered into minutely also.
THE HI"Ll'. DAMAGES.
Perhaps I.oughtto anticipate an objection
from the other side to tho effect that these
national losses, whether from the destruc?
tion of our commerce or the prolongation of
tho war, are indirect and remote, so as not
to be a just cause of claim.
This is expressed at tho common law hy
tho rule that "damages must be for tho
natural and proximate consequences of an
Act." (2 Greenleaf, Ev., p. ?10.) To this
excuse the answer is explicit. The damages
suffered by tho United States are twofold,
individual and national, being in each case
direct and proximate, although in the ono
case individuals Buffered, and iu the other
cuso the nation.
It is easy to seo that there may be occa?
sions where, overtopping all individual da?
mages, are damages suffered by the nation,
so that reparation to individuals would bo
sufficient; nor can tho claim of tho nation bo
questioned simply because it is largo, or be?
cause the evidence with regard to it is dif?
ferent from that in the caso of au individual.
In each caso the damage must be proved
by tbe best possible evidence, and this is all
that law or reason can require. In the caso
of the nation the evidence is historic, and
this is enough. Impartial history will re?
cord the national losses from British inter?
vention, and it is only reasonable that the
evidence of these losses should not be ex?
cluded from judgment. Because the caso is
without precedent, because no nation ever
before received such injury from a friendly
power, this can bo no reason why tho case
should not be considered on the evidence.
Gallows literature seems to be by far the
most popular reading that can bo offered to
the people of Philadelphia. A journal of
that city boasts that one of its cotempora
ries was obliged to reprint on Thursday its
edition of tho doy previous, containing the
particulars of tho suicide of Twitchell and
the execution of Eaton, while another
printed and sold an edition of 95,000 copies
containing its versou of the delectable
events. Manifestly a case of murder with
its attendant horrors is ? "sweet boon" to
the mild-mannered inhabitants of tho "city
of brotherly love.'* (

Scrofulous poison is one of the most destructive
enemies of our race. Often, this unseen and un?

fatal diseases, without exciting a suspicion of its
presence. Again, it seems to breed infection

occasion, rapidly develop into one or other of its
hideous forms, either on tho surface or among
the vitals. In the latter, tubercles may bo sud?

f""nHE Com ruisBionar of Agriculture, in bis report
JL for the year 1865. H peaks as follows:
"Tli o ri-- oan bo no doubt of the general adulte?
ration of all malt liquors. In England and other
omi tries, where heavy penalties are imposed, and
an increasing vigilance practiced to det?ct and
punish such frauds, by a system of inspection of
all malt liquors manufactured before exposed to
sale, tho practice is very common. How much
more lu this country, where tbero are no laws on
the subject, and no officer to carefully analyze tho
products of tho orowery? Boni o years ago, Pro?
fessor Mnpee, of New York, analyzed the beer
from a dozon different breweries, aud all were
found adulterated with noxious substances. It is
said that the pale of drugs to brewers, is a profit?
able part of the trade. This is perfectly infamous.
Cocculus indiens, (?sh-berry,) uux v?mica, (dog
button, from which strychnine is obtained,) are
some of tho delect able substances found in beer!
These uro potent poisons, and the brewer found
using thom should bo drowned at onro in one of
bis own vats. Tho British Parliament passed a
law to prevent this nefarious business. Tho fol?
lowing ia nn extract: *No druggist, vendor of or
dealer in drugs, or chemist, or any other person,
shall sell or deliver to any licensed brewer, dosier
in or lclailer of beer, knowing them to bo such,
or shall sell or deliver to any person on account
of, or in trnst for, any such brewer, dealer, or re?
tailer, any liquor called by the naroo of or sold for
coloring, from whatever "material t! ' same may
bc made; or any material or prcpai ion other
than UDground brown malt, for the darkening tho
color of worts or beor, or any molasses, vitriol,
honey, quassia, coccnlus indicus, grains of para?
dise, Guinea pepper, or opium, or any extract or
preparation of molasses, or any art icio or prepa?
ration to bo used in worts or beor for or as a sub?
stitute for malt or hops; and if any druggist shall
offend in any of these particulars, such prepara?
tion, Ac, shall be forfeited, and may bo seized by
any ofticor of excise, and thc person so offending
shall forfeit fica hundred pounds.'
"Under this law, very many druggists and brew?
ers, wero brought to grief, and yet tho practice
continues. Unless tho American public aro ready
to admit tho immaculate purity and innocence of
American brewers, they must bo content, while
drinking their beer, to cherish the belief that they
are at tho samo time guzzling some narcotic poi?
son or damaging medicine. In view of the unpre?
cedented growth of tho barley crop; of the great
incroaao of the number of maltsters and brewers;
of the vast unknown quantities of beer tbat are
drunk in every city and almost every town on the
continent; it is the dictate of sound wisdom, that
tho attention of legislators should bo called to
tho subject of tho adulteration of our malt liquors,
and severe penalties should bo inflicted as a pre?
