Washington, May 27, 1856. j
Sm: The President has . carefully
considered the note of the 30th nit,
addressed to yon by the Earl ; of
Clarendon, her Majesty's .Principal
Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs
relative, to the questions which have
arisen between this government and
that of . Great Britain, on the subject
of .recruiting within the United States
for the British army, and has directed
ma to present toyou hisviews'there
on, for the purpose of. having them
made known to her Majesty s gov
ernment ; . . . . - '
He has been much gratified by the
conciliatory spirit of that note, and
by . the desire manifested by the Earl
of -Clarendon to adjust " the "existing
difficulties,, and to . preserve and.
strengthen the friendly, relations be
tween the United States .and; Great
Britain. The .vast interests which
fhs rrovernment and people of both
countries have in upholding and cher
ishing such relations cannot De more
solemnly impressed upon her Majesty
government than it is upon mat oi tne
United btates. , r
The uneauivocal" disclaimer by her
Majesty's government of "any inten
tion either to infringe the law or not
to respect the . sovereign "right? of
the United States and their ex-'
pressiou of regret "if, cantrary; to
their intention either to infringe the
law or to disregard the policy, or not
to respect tne sovereigu nguw vi
United States," 'anfl .their expression
of ; regret 'if, contrary to their
intentions and to their reiterated direc
tions,' there has ' been any infringe
ment on the laws of the United
States," are satisfactory to the Pres
ident The ground of. complaint, bo
far as respects her Majesty's govern
ment, is thus removed. ' : ,
But .the. President extremely re
grets' that he cannot concur in Lord
Clarendon's favorable opinion of .the
conduct of some of her Majesty's
officers , who were, as this government
ueiievea,. ana, uiter uuo uuu&iucinw-
of "all which has been offered in', their
defence, still believes, implicated in
proceedings which, were, so cieany
an infringement of the laws and. sov-
ereW riiihts of this' country.', i In
respect to euch of these , officers, and
agents as have, no j connection "Vith
fhi.q government it has nothing; to
ask from' that of her Majesty, but
the case is different in' relanon to

fidently believes, deeply implicated
in proceedings . contrary to the law
and sovereign rights . of the United
States," and contrary as it now ' ap
pears, to thT intentions and reitera
ted instructions of their government.
It was their, personal acts, certainly
not less obiectionable 'for having been
done contrary to the direction of her
Majesty's" ministers, which rendered
them in their official characters and
Dosition unacceptable to this eovern-
X -
ment, and induced the President, for
that cause to solicit their recall, be
lieving that bv this course he was
contributing to the common interest
and harmony of the two governments.
lie has not alter the most mature de
liberation, been aWe to ; change his
view of their ionduct. ana cannot
therefore change his purpose in rela
tion Jto them. Though their conduct
related to, and in fact originated, a
difficulty which - disturbed the cordial
harmony and good understanding be
tween the two countries, it constitu
ted .a- decided obiection to them of
a personal character, which loses none
ol its lorce Dy tne satisiactory adjust
ment of the difficulty, --v
' The only embarrassment which at
tends the ..case is the difference of
opinon between the. two governments
as to the complicity ol these - omcers
in illegal proceedings within the Uni
ted States. ; ; . - ;
In reviewing this subject, the Pres
ident was disposed to avail himself
of any reasonable doubts-which could
be raised in.his mind in order to bring
his opinion in this respect to ' confor
mity with that of her. Majesty's gov
ernment; but,' after careful considera
tion of the case, he has been unable
to change the conclusion 'to which he
had previously arrived. - ? - -
This difference of opinion may be,
in some degree, ascribed to the differ
ence in the views of the two ' govern
ments in respect to the neutrality law
and the sovereign rights of this coun
try. . ; -
It b not proposed,howe ver,to contin
ue the discussion upon that subject
The conclusion of the' President,
stated in mv desbatch of the 28th
i i .
of December, to youf predecessor, in
regard to tne. construction oi tnat
law and the character and extent 'of
those rights, remain unchanged, and
he cannot torego the duty ol using
all. proper means to, sustain and vin
dicate them. '
The. main cause of this difference
of . opinion is . the. ; different apprecia
tion of the uroofs hv which the char-
ee acainst her Majesty's diplomatic
representatives ana consuls are sus
tained..- . t , i r.- ..
. . Lord Carendon asks " . this ; govern
ment to recard the bare : declarations
of these . officers as ; of: sufficient
weight to tjountervail the evidence
against them. ':.Their dentils as pre
sented in his -despatch -oi the oUth
of April and that is all ; which has
been communicated to this govern
ment bh- the subject seem to be
sDecial. and do not traverse all the
j - -
allegations against them. They deny
that they have, infringed our neutral
ity law, by enlisting persons within
the United States for -the British ser
vice, oi hiring of 'retaining persons
td leave the United- States for the
purpose 'of beins: enlisted in that ser
vice. '. The'eharges against them are
much broader, and embrace . the of
fence of violating the'laws and-sov-ereigtf
'rights of the 'United States
by setting ki operation, within our
territory, and conducting an extensive
system of recruiting, which was not
and could not be carried into effect
without 1 infringing our 5 laws and
rights;" by employing numerous a-
gents TOeugHge pjrsuus,iuipcuimujr
or other cbisidefatioiss, to leave the
of enteripff intx) the British armv. and
by keeping these jigents in t this em -
ployment after it was well known that
thev were. constantly infrinrinsr our
laws . ' , .
The denial of the implicated offi
cers only covers a part of the delin
quencies imputed to them; but confin
ing the exculpatory declaration to the
simple charge of having violated the
Drovision3 of our neutrality act it
does not merit the consideration which
Lord Clarendon has ascribed to" it
By adopting Lord , Clarendon's con-
struction of. our neutrality law contain-
cdin hisnote of thelCth of November,
which renders it almost nugatory, and
is contrary to that 0f this goverment
and of its judicial tribunals, these
officers have not probably found much
embarrassment', in meeting the . char
ges with a general denial.
But giving to the " declaration of
Mr. Crampton and the consuls all the
consideration which can be fairly
claimed for it' under the circumstances
of the case, it cannot counterbalance
the unimpeached and well sustained
evidence which establishes "the ' char
ges against these officers of having
infringed the laws and . sovereign
rights of the United States. .
Lord Clarendon's note to you of the
30th of Apiil conveys the impression
that, the evidence bv which these offi -
cers are implicated is derived' from
one or two witnesses whose credibility
has been assailed. "This, however,
is not a correct view of the facts. , .
By the examination of my despatch
of the 28th of December, it will be
perceived that these . witnesses, were
strongly corroborated, and that there
are .proois, wnoiiy independent ol
theh"testimony, abundantly sufficient
ii i i . i 1 li m
to establish tho complicity of Mr.
Crampton and the consuls' in the in
fringement of the laws and sovereign
rights of the United States. I trust
it will not be questioned that it be-
longs exclusively to" this government
and its judicial tribunals to give a
construction to its municipal laws, and
to determine what ' acts done within
its jurisdiction are infringements of
those laws. ' This is a matter which
concerns its internal administration,
and itcannotrllowthe agents of any
foreign power to controvert that con-j
struction, and justify their conduct
by a dilierent interpretation of; our:
laws, which virtually renders them in
effective for the purposes intended.'
The Earl of Clarendon informs
you; in his note of. the SOth of April,
that Mr; Crampton positively denies
the charge of complicity in any of
the acts of illegal, enlistment in the
United States," and that the three
consuls inculpated do the same. He
assumes that the charge against them
is sustained mninly by the .evidence
of two persons, Strobel and ; Hertz
whom he conceives to be unworthy of
cieditjand he appeals to the American i
government to accept as conclusive
the declarations of the minister; and
consuls. I am" instructed to say
that these considerations : do not re
lieve the President's mind of the un
favorable impression produced by the
conduct of those gentlemen in relation
to. foreign recruitment in the United
States. . . :- '
It will be seen by referring to - my i
despatch of the " 28 th of December,
in wliich the grounds of charge
against Mr. Crampton were fully stat
ed, that the testimony of Strobel and
Hertz was quite a secondary, and
an' unimportant, part of the evidence
adduced; the charge being supported
independently of their testimony, by
other witnesses, by original letters of i
Mr. Crampton and others, and by un
deniad and undeniable acts of Mr.
Crampton. . . -: . V, " . .
, As to ..Strobel and Hertz, however,
it may be observed that the documents
transmitted by Lord Clarendon, as
proving those persons unworthy 'of
credit, are entitled to but little weight
consisting, as they do chiefly of ex
parte affidavits, detailing matters
mostly of mere hearsay." And what
ever may have been, the character of
those persons, it by no means follows'
that they did not testify to the truth.
They were agents selected and trusted
by Mr. Crampton himself, and to them
he committed most imfortent 'cqia-
! cerns. Such an endorsement should
1 countervail the impeachment of their
veracity founded on loose nearsay
reports. Noir does it seem to be a
thing of much moment, in - relation
to the present question, that Strobel,
in consequence, of imputed miscon
duct, was dismissed from employ ment
by the 'lieutenant governor of Nova
Scotia, and afterwards endeavored to
'obtain money from v Mr. Crampton
(The fact remains that he had held a
'commission in the British Foreign
j Iegion,andthat as, it is "clearly proved,
an nt denied, he maintained as a re
cruiting officer, and, for a considerable
period of time, association, personally
or by correspondence, with air. Lramp-
The employment of Strobel by
Mr. Crampton, their long association
in the joint work of recruiting in
- the United States for the Foreign
Leg'ron, the distinction of her Majes
ty's commission of captain in that
corps, conferred on Strobel, would
seem, at least tQ deprive Mr. Cramp
ton of the right to deny hi3 credibili
ty asawitness.
But there is a larger and more
comprehensive class of consider
ations applicable to this, particular
question. For a period of nearly
five monlbs; that is, from about the
fmiddlc of March, 1855, to the 5th
of " August, 1855 the peace and
order of this countrv were disturbed
especially in the .cities, of Boston,
New York; Philadelphia, and Urn
cinnati, hy the unlawful "acts of nu
merous persons engaged in raising
recruits, or in beingjecruited,for the
(British Foreign Legionl They were
suppnea witn ampie agenis .iuej
1 1-1.. J 1 i
obstinately resisted and set at naught
all the efforts of the "local author
ities of the United States to put a
stop to their, proceedings, nor did
they desist until they received or
ders to that effect from the British
government in the month of August,
j The recruits thus unlawfully raised
j in the United States during all that
time were conveyed to Halifax, and
there enrolled in the Foreign Legion.
; All these acts, as well as their ille
calitv. were notorious. Long before
the trial of Hertz in Septemberand
of Wagner in October, they must
have been brought to the particular
notice of Mr. Crampton, the Uiitish
consuls," and other agents, by prelim
inary' judicial inquiries, which took
place Loth in New York , and Phila
delphia. .In consequence - of the steps to
that effect taken by me on the 22d
of March, the proper instructions
were issued on the 23d,"and prosecu
tion commenced in Philadelphia on j
the 30th of March, and in New York;
on the 5th of April.
As example of the character of
these proceedings, tbeir notoriety,,
and conclusive legal effect, what
occurred in May deserves particular
notice. f ,
"At New York on the 15th of May,
a number of persons namely, God
freied Wachter, Wilbelm Schumack
er, Julius Parkus, Oscar Cromey,
and Andrew Lutz were examined
before Commissioner Betts, on the
charge of recrhiting for the service
of Great Britain. Eminent counsel
were employed by, the parties accus
ed, who argued-that' no offence had
been committed, because it did not
appear that any valid Contract of
enlistment had been consummated.
But this ground j( "defence was over
ruled by the commissioner,- who,
though he 'discharged Wachter J for
defective evidence, committed Latz,
Schumacker, Cromey and Parkus.
At Philadelphia, on the 25th of
May, three persons, Hertz, Perkins,
and Bucknall, having been arrested
on the charge of illegal recruiting in
the service of Great Britain, applied
to the. Circuit Court ofthe United
States, by habeas corpus to be dis
charged from custody. The presid
injr judge, the Hon. John K. Klane,
on examinationof the evidence taken
in the case before " th6 commissioner,
found . that the proofs were sufficient
to bring the acts of Hertz and ' Per
kins within tbe conditions of the
law, but not bo'hs to Bucknall. Ac
j cordiogl,;tlie 'litter waaf discharged,
but the two former were committed
for trial. '
. Tlius, so early as May, it was judi
cially shown that what was doing in
this respect was unlawful. Mr.
Crampton was acqua:nted with these
proceedings, and was thus sufficient
ly admonished, that tbe acts of re
cruitment carried on under his au
thority did, in fact, whatever may
have been his intention, constitute
a violation of the municipal law of
the Uuiied SfAtts. ' Thii had been
decided by the courts of the United
States," and was publicly and exten
sively made known. It is not con
troverted Indeed it is admitted
that he bad the recruiting busness in
his charge, and under his control; yet
he permitted it to be continued al
t lough judicially determined to be
unlawful, through the mouth of May,
June, and July, into August.
Now, this long series of acts, un
lawful and otherwise prejudicial to
the good name and tranquility of the
country, were- performed by persons
who were liberally paid by the British
officers, and many of whom actually
entered the military service of Great
Britain. That was incontestably
proved oft the trial of Hertz and Wag
ner, by evidence which has not been,
and cannot be, impeached; and al
though the evidence adduced on
those trials does not need corrobora
tion, still, it may not be amiss to add
that much other evidence to the
same effect is" in .possessioV of the
government, some of which is annex
ed to this dispatch in form of docu
ments responsive to those accompa
nying the Earl of Clarendon.
Who is to. be accoun table for these
unlawful acta? - Were they . all per
formed by volunteer and irresponsi
ble persons, as argued in .the E irl of
Clarendon's dispatch of the 16th of
July?-- That cannot be admitted, for
the conclusive reason that they re
ceived pay from British officers, and
of course, were employed by some
responsible agent of the British gov
ernment. " -
The E-irl of Clarendon, iu behalf
of her Majesty's government,' dis
claims all intention to violate the
laws, compromise the neutrality, or
disrespect "the sovereignty, of the
United States, by enlisting troops
within their territory.' 1 he Presi
dent unreservedly accepts, and is ful
ly satisfied with his disclaimer. Of
codrse, the unlawful acts in question
were not authorized by the British
govern me.t; bat the fact is, never
theless, well established that they
were done, and done in thename,and
at tlie expense, of the British govern
ment 'Who, then, is responsible'
for those nets? Were there uo di
rect proof though there is much of
that characterthe inference would
be irrefcislible, that not being author
ized by the British government it
self, they were, the unauthorized acts
of the British agents in the United
Stales. Such agents having acted
in wilful disregard of. tlie orders of
their government' in thus infringing
our laws, may have failed to inform
their government that what they
had undertaken ' to do could not be
done without infringing "those laws,
or by nvsinan-igement, indiscretion,
r over-zeal, they may have partici
pated in such infringement, though1
well knowing it was contrary to the
wishes and the express orders of their
government. However this may be,
it is certain that agents existed, be
cause their acts nppear. ' Who were
those agents? . :
' Of this we are not left in doubt
In the' documents on the subject re
cently laid before Parliament, it . is
distinctly stated that the enlistment
in the United , States did - not . stop
until Mr. Crampton gave orders for
their cessation on the 5th of August
He had power to stop the acts of en
listment; he knew the proceedings
were,iom the commencement, ex
ceedingly offensive to 'this govern
ment, and that it was ; devoting its
active energies to arrest them; he
was bound to know he . could not
but know, what was notorious to all
tlie world that through themonthsof
( April May, Juno and July, tho re-
J cruitiDg agents in various parts, o the
United States, and, conspicuously in
Boston, NewiYork, Philadelphia, and
Cincinnati, were keeping up a most
unseemly contest with the law officers
of the United States, and that at
least as early as May the illegality
of the proceedings had been pro
nounced by the federal courts ia New
York and Philadelphia; and- yet not
withstanding this, he permitted tho
unlawful acts in question to go on,
without check, until the month of
August. For thus giving counte
nance to those illegal proceedings he
is distinctly responsible. -
But his accountability extends yet
further; for the same documents show
that the official suggestion to the Bri
tish - government of the untoward
scheme of obtaining recruits in the
United States came from the corres
pondence of Mr. Crampton, and of
the consuls at New York, Philadel
phia and Cincinnati; and that to Mr.'
Crampton were the superintendence
and execution of the scheme commit
ted. . And thus it is that he who di
rected had the power to step the.pro
ceeding;and thus, from early in March
until August, he is found busily oc
cupied in superintending enlistments,
party m the United btates and part
ly in Canada and Nova Scotia, and in
issuing instructions to the agents en
gaged in that enterprise.

A Physiological Curiosity.
St Martin, the man who has an
opening in his stomach, produced by
a gunshot wound, is in New York,
and a number cf physicians of that
city have been experimenting with
thejriew to ascertain, the time required
to digest food. A thermometer in
troduced into bis stomach through the
opening rose to 101 Fahrenheit The
carrot, Dr. Bating says, is consumed
in five or six . hours. . Rare . roasted
beef will thoroughly dig3st in an hour
and a half. Melted butter will not
digest at all, but floats about m
the stomach. Lobster is compara
tively easy of digvstion. Upon the apn
plication of the gastric juice to a
piece of purple tissue paper, the color
at once faded. . In relation to the
patient's health, Dr. Burring observed '
that it had teea fortunately excellent,
having from the first effects . of the
wound supported a large family by

effect upon his health, nor has it pre

a compress to the aperture in drinking
water or swallowing anything, else,
the whole contents of the stomach will
pass out through the opneing. Through
th"i3 opening come out small parts of
the stomach, t. e the inner coat
shows its different appearances thick"
