Richmond, V.l., March 25.?(lovnrnor Tyler will hardly yield to Iho some? what sharp demand <>f Governor Lowndos, of Maryland, that tin- oyster men oC that Suite recently captured in Maryland waters by a Virginia police boat, bo released. The Governor received to-day from 'Governor Lowndes the litter published in to-day's papers, demanding that the men he surrendered. The Governor was osked as to whether he approved of the action of the Maryland Execu? tive in giving tho letter to the press he fort It had been received hero, lie re? fused to discuss the matter, lie: also refused to say whether he disliked the tone of the somewhat sharp letter. The Governor and Attorney-General Montague were in conference sometime yesterday regarding the legal aspects '>f the case. Attorney-General Montague lias not yet given the Governor a dual opinion in the matter, but it is believed bo will advise htm that he has not the right to liberate any of 111.- Crew Of tile captured vessels. Only two of the men are now in jail. They arc .? flned at Onancock. The Attorney-Gen? eral will probably advise the Governor that lie may order the captured v< - sols released, but that the men will have to look to the courts for libera? tion. The vessels and crew were captured Jn Maryland waters in Tangier Sound .by Capt. William Parka and crew, ..f the Virginia police boat. They are al? leged to have been taking oysters in Virginia waters, and were pursued across the lino and captured. The crews were taken to Onnn.k ami Jailed, and the vessels, the Water Lily and the Minnie Estelle, wero held to await condemnation pr.lings. La? ter nil the men were set free except two. The vessels are still held. GOVERNOR LOWNDES" ItEPLY. Governor Lowndes ask.-.I that the men be set free. The Governor had the case investigated by President Fletch er, of the State Hoard of Fisheries, and Commonwealth's Attorney Gun I r, of Accomaek. Their report made it doubt? ful whether the men should be .;> i ft and Governor Tyh r so inform? .1 Gover? nor Lowndes; The latter, however, Bays in his reply: "From tlie statement of Messrs. Fletcher and G?nter, as ciuotcd in your letter, it appears that the fact of the captures having taken place in Mary? land waters Is established. In View of the unwarranted violation of the nov erelgnty of the Stale of Maryland. 1 hereby renew my request that the members of the crew of the vessel Min? nie Estelle be released from custody and returned to Maryland, and thai the vessels Water l^ily and Minnie Estclle, fwith their cargoes, be restored to their owners. "Let me assure Your Excellency that 3 have no desire to condone or defend the violation of the laws of Virginia by citizens of Maryland. The probable guilt or Innocent.t the accused is not tinder consideration. So long as there Is an orderly method for the Interstate rendition of alleged fugitives froth Jus? tice, provided by the Constitution and laws of the United Pint es and uni? formly recognized by the several States, I cannot consent to ihc Invasion >.f Maryland territory by the police au? thorities of Virginia for the pursuit and arrest of persons charged with violat? ing the laws of that Commonwealth. "Your Excellency win. doubtless, agree with me that citizens are but en? couraged to do lawless acts when (hoy pee State oflicers temselvea permitted to transcend the bounds of lawful au? thority." ri-IU.TSTTF.P EARLY, The letter from which the foregoing extract is taken was written Friday and given to the press before it had been received by Governor Tyler.
