Sin : I i.the honor to acknowledge the receipt "t vi r
letter of the I ? :. ii grant, with which was transmitted a copy
"t recent eorresp m lence between the Department of State
and Her Britannic Majesty's Minister to the United"States,
relating :?? the case of Alexander McLcod.a British subject*.
\- iin was arrested at Lewiston in November last, ami i- now
I detained at Lockportj on a charge of having !.nchtraged
ra*rhe capture and destruction of the steamboul Carolini in
i the yenr 1537;
YTou will pli asc make known to ti:" Prcsi !??:.:. that .it a re?
cent term of the general sessions of the peace held in and
!i,r the county .if Niagara, Alexander McLcod, who is die
- ? :ct of the correspondence, was indicted for the crime of
arson committed in the transaction to which you have refer?
red. ThegExecuttvc Authority of this State i- not in: inn ??:
of the nature of the testimony which was submitted r? > tin'
grand jury, but :<" doubt is entertained that it was sufficient
1.1 justify die finding of a traie l>ii!. Notwithstanding the
legal presumption agnin<t the prisoner, it i- understood that
he asserts confident]} Iii- innocence of any agency in the cap?
ture and destruction of the Caroline. A just regard for the
honor "i" the Slate, as well as a dke consideration of the im?
portance ol the cn?c to the prisoner, und'tho possible influ
ei ? ?-? "I the result of the proceeding upon the relations exist?
ing-* between this country and Great Britain, has - emed
nv to n quire that the accused should have a fair and irnnnr
Hal trial: that il" he participated in the incendiary anU mur?
derous transaction w-itk which his name: has dins Lvcit con?
nected, he should sutler the pcnnlly which nur laws prc
scribe; and that, on the other hand, if he be in truth inno?
cent, ihe justice of our country ought t? manifest itself i::
hi* acquittal, notwithstanding the public indignation which
the-crime laid to his chai^eTJias so ? ju8dyrcalled forth; [n
Uueu.I by these? views I lind, previously^to the receipt of
ynnr c .:. m mi tad ut cum K it my duty to require die Chii :
Jusdee of the Supreme Court of Judicature "1" ilii- Stale to
1 reside at the b .il of the c?tiso, and directed the Attnrhey*
Geuernl to conduct prosecution. Fhc trial will be
brought "!i at ti:.' next court of over and tcrmincr to be held
irr the county of'Niagara oh the fourth Monday of March
next, unless the prisoner shall interpose reasons for deiav, or
avail himself.of his right to demand the removal of the
cause out Hi' the court of over and tcrmincr. with a view to
obtain n change of >??:.':?? \ < - imc otli 1 county than that in
which the indictment w as found. Be pleased to assure the
President, that ? far as shall depend upon : ic nothing shall
occur in regard to the case inconsistent ivith die view. I
have expressed.
The views of the President as exhibited in the correspon
iie ce i cfore me are fully concurred in, an?! hi- action in ac?
cordance with those views will be duly.suppt?rt#d by the ptib
lic authorities of tili? Stats. Tituse authorities desire thai
all the amieahle relations of die-country may be conti 1 tied,
and they ai.specially solicitous for the preservation of the
harmony which happily forboth parti. - has so long'existed
between the United States and the great nation, one of. whose
Provinces is upon our Northern borders. Nevertheless the
public authorities of die Stui.-. well as die whole people,
are obliged [,y ;l proper se:i,e of tin' national In?:..>r. and
every consideration affecting die goncral security, to regard

The latti I order was as certainly v. ithin the legal province of

the trraad jury bad passed upon tlie charge and uffirmed its

The grand jury to whom die evidence was submitted hi- af?

The justice of die country requires that the case should be

having in many instances relative, and friends or acquaint?
ances, who, if they w ould but stop u moment in their hurried
career i ..i just think of diem, could render them services
that might save them from wretchedness; if riot from ruin.

that they should e\,-r. then they should not be tojcratsd at

to desrrov th morals of the community and till our peniten?
