carelessness on tho part of the military forces
of tho United States, bo that redress, If Justly

Incntortng upon Ibis examination, I could
not but remark that Mr. Bougere's own repre
sentations of his attitude towards tbo do, cm
ment do not seem to mo to fully justify tbe
view of It which, u,wn different Information,
you hat u assnmcu. Yon stato that his antece
dents hnvo been represented to you as excel
lent In all respects, and that ho appears to
hao ncm departed from tho strict neutrality
which the Emperor's Government has not
ceased to recommend to Its citizens under ox
1 s tint,' circumstances. In trusting to Mr. Bon
gcre's statement, I obserro that upou the point
non lu question ho states only that ho uer
loet his nationality as a French subject, nor
boru arms against tho United States. I need
hardly point out to so just an obsen cr as your
Excellency the fact that, besides bearing arms
against tho United Btatcs, thcro am other ays
In which a man of wealth and Influence can
abet and support a treasonable Insurrection.
Kveu tho chief of the revolutionary conspiracy,
and every member of the cabals which aro
called his Cabinet and Congicss, can probably
safely assert that ho has never borne arms
against tho United States. It may, neverthe
less, bo tme that Mr. Bougere has preserved
his neutrality In tho present conillct, notwith
standing his own seeming reserve upon mot
object i I will thcreforo cheerfully receive,
upou that point, any more full and a Jti factory
Information which you may bo authorised now
or hereafter to furnish. In tho mean time,
candor requires that I should Inform jou that
even tho very cautious and guarded statement
which Mr. liougcro mako concerning his neu
trality Is distinctly contradicted by the military
authorities at Now Orleans. Iboy represent

raising from the political character of tho
claimant to tho details of tho transaction com
plained of, I must call your attention to the
cry aguu and unsatisfactory manner In which
tho facts aro presented by Mr. Uougcre. lie
coulents himself with saying that a column of
troops of tho United States, commanded by
Colonel Thomas and Cnptuin Orout, of the
Eighth Vermont, took by force tho slaes and
nronem described, and forbears from gi lng
any account of tho moment or circumstances of
tho aucgeu capture. This very general nai la
ment la unsupported by any teatlmouy or el
ilaicc, nor is It even authenticated by tho cus
tomary continuation of his own oath.

them going off before the column at It ad

proceeded that the expedition returned during
a night and a day, and that other negroes, sup
posed to bo slaves then, followed it on Its re
turn and that all this was done not only with
out any command or dlrodlon given by the
ouiccr, out even wunout any interference made
by himself or by any of the forces constituting
the expedition. It Is also ststcd by tho mili

the plantation before tho expedition waa made,

The same authorities report that when tho
expedition had pasted Mr. uougcre's homo on
Its outward march, that person, who had been
absent from tho mansion, rclnrncd to It and
then drove all his cattle and other stock back
Into the woods, and also drovo the slaves who
wero then remaining on the plantation Into his
sugar-houtei and that these slaves, taking ad
vantage of tho night, left the sugar-home and
followed the expedition on Its return to the
Tho military authorities further report that
they took two very poor horses from the plant
ation and used them to draw the guns, but that
onlr one of them belonged to Mr. Bougcret
and they allege that no other horses or other
anlm.ls, nor any carriages or slaves, or other
property, wero taken from tho plantation by
tho expeditionary force, either with or without
