Having undertaken tho work, Mr. Cooke

of aub-agenclcs had been thoroughly organ
ised and extended throughout tbc. country,
subscriptions gradual? rocrenscd. until, nt
length, the unwearied labors of the general
agent and his aub-azents were crowned with
complete success. Not only was tho whole
loan taken, but subscriptions wcro made on
tho day It was finally closed for nearly eleven
millions of dollars In excess of tho nmannt aa

wns allowed no compensation.

Would she assent to our folio wing her own pre

busily engaged In a domestic war to lulfer our

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

aro speculations on the chances or war. Is it
reasonably certain not only that wo shall not

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
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-
I hare Mil houot to be, willt hlBu coasiucra
