Tha princi ple Involved Is a plain one, namely, that la si war, whether civil or (oreltrn, a coutendlnir party without ports, or harbors, or ships, or COaStS. Shall not bo allowed. hTtint r.l mtlnni to build, or arm, equip, and maintain. In tbo ports of such fitatcs, aud on the ocean, pirati cal vesscla to depredate on the unarmed com mercial vessels of a nation with whom these States are In relations of peace and friendship, ami iu vujuj uiuwr iuu pruLveuoa la SQCO mates without amenability to tho international laws of war Tho Government of tho UnltoJ States, In favor nf tho commerce of neutral and tho pcaco of nations, denies anv toleration tn ueb n practice. Tbo Governments of France and Groat DrlUln seem to us to accord It. Which of tbo two policies shall becomo the precedent In futuro warsl It Is desirable and It Is urgent that this Question shall be settled now. France Is ns war In Mexico, and. practical! r incaklnir. has closed all tho porta of that Republic Would she assent to our folio wing her own pre cedent set In tho case of the Florida, and espe cially of the Georgia? True, wo are yet too busily engaged In a domestic war to lulfer our snip-Duuacrs ana armorers to become ship builders and armorers for the enemies of France. i rue, this war or ours has not yet resulted lo the suppression of the Insurgents, and perhaps France may yet think think that It la not llksJy to havo that auspicious termination. But these aro speculations on the chances or war. Is it reasonably certain not only that wo shall not retrain onr domestic roaeo within a vcar. bnt that during that time Kurope will remain en tirely at rest and free fromfao commotions of civil ond International wars! If. on the con trary, we shall again ho left free from the ca lamity of war. and that calsmlty shall descend upon Kurope, can any Enropcan statesman be llevo that mltguldod cltlaens of tho United Estates wouia not claim mo right to practice upon tho rules which tho maritime Powers, wncn ino cases were revcrseo, naa sppnea to ourselves! This Government Is not sanguine In regard to tho closo of our civil war. It neither hopes nor desires, and therefore it does not expect, a disturbance of tho pcaco of Eu rope. Hut It does believe that tlmo lu Its pro gress 1 ring's a common experience to overy na tion In Its turn, and It asks, In tho Interests of pvaco nuu ui namauuy, lust ino puucj oi man lime Powers may now be based upon principles susceptible of universal application I am, sir, your obodlcnt servant, William ll. tiEtVlKD. U'llLliU I.. Uattox, Esq., kc., .fee., Ac. f s tfaiiJ fo .Vr. VtrcUr DCI-ARTMCHT 01 STATE, ( IVaj.ujtotok, November 4, 163. ( w Bin I havo carcfullr read vonr Excellency' uoto of tho 31st of October. In which I am re quested to express my concurrence In the views of tho laws atfectlng tho claims of persons who may ciaitn exemption irom military service in tho United States on Iho ground of a supreme autgianco to tho Emperor ot tne rrencn. xou arrange such persons Into ten distinct classes. ana asK irom me a categorical opinion in re gard to the title of persons belonging to each oftheso classes lo the waiver or exemption. This Government could not JuiUy bo asked to express Itself npon even one proposition of that elm racier, unless an actual case of tho draft of ajH-rson falling within the terms of the proposition should arise. It would be still more Inconsistent to pronouueo categorlally uttou thu several propositions ot the same char aetcr If circumstances should not render such a proceeding Indispensable to the protection of any Individuals, or to tho Interests of tho Uni ted States. I am satisfied, from what has already fallen under my notice, thst there Is no probability that cases will arise requiring so comprehensive au examination of the subject. Returns of drafted persons have beeu received at this Department from thrco fitatcs, In all In cluding two hundred and sev cntcen persons. Of them only two ttrsons have claimed ex cmptlonon tho ground of their owing allegiance to i rnnec ll u h of these presented his claims dlroeilv to tho Department, under the official liiTltatlou extended for that purpose, without tho Intervention of any diplomatic or consular agent of tbo French Owernmcut. Ono has already been pronouueud exempt, aud the other probably will be on the coming tn of tho evl denco In ah case I could not at i recut saucllon all the poil tlons aisumcl In jour proposed circular. At tho same Umo only inconvenience could result from unnecessarily controverting any of them. I Propose, therefore'-aa the bust war. to leave you at cntlro llbcrtj to Iuo such Instructions io jour eonsms as jou tmnK proper, ana upon jour own responsibility, reserving at thosamu time for myself a consideration uf principles luolvcd as tbo cases actuall) arise. Bj the word c prion In jour ilreular, I un derstand jou lo mean iiimiiifie, and if thl la so, I havu no objection lo make, otherwlso It would bo ncecssiry for me to say that while I should pay tho highest possible respect to a consular certificate of tho facts in a case, I could not admit it to bo conclusive so at to prevent my roccWlng contradictory evidence to rebut It, and deciding In any case as a full examination of all conflicting evidence should reiulrc. lo conclude, I would observe that tho appre hensions of timid persons havo very much mag nified harards of tho draft- I am satisfied that U will bo entirely easy to disuse of tbo claims to exemption as they arise, to tho entire satis fictlonof jour Governmcut and my own, with out attempting to agrco upon a i lotocol on a sublet t whoso conflicts of law aro so often tn- touuterod I hare Mil houot to be, willt hlBu coasiucra tlon, sir, uir obedient servant.
