drove up I saw Mr. Blair and the Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Mr. Fox, sitting together in his study. I went in. Fox knew that I had goFox knew that I had gone on the expedition to Hatteras, for it was one in which he was much interested. When he saw me he cried out: Where from? Gustavus V. FoGustavus V.

I stated the result of the expeditiot took us some fifteen minutes to do it, and I remember remarking to Fox that if I was on the other side I could have come here and captured all Lincoln was, and he seemed very much taller in that garment; and Fox was about five feet nothing. In a few hurried words, without waiting for any forms or ceremonies, Fox communicated the news, and then he and Lincoln fell into each other's arms.

When Seward's order was made it was so worded as not to appear to be a thrust at Mexico, for we were claiming to be friendly with Mexico and against the French in the matter of putting a French emperor over her. Thus we were stabbing her in the back. Soon afterwards I received information that one or more ships of the French fleet at Martinique, under the command of Admiral Reynaud (Fox) of the French navy, were coming to New Orleans.

I instantly understood what that meant. There were no draught mules in Mexico, and there were substantially none in all the West India Islands. There were plenty of pack mules
where such unheard — of proceedings could take place, and desiring nothing but the best adjudication of the case, I appealed to the Attorney-General, the Secretary of the Navy, and the Secretary of the Treasury, as he had got into it, for an agreement that the case should be referred by the rule of the court to three arbitrators,--two of them men of the highest standing as lawyers, the Hon. Henry W. Paine, of Massachusetts, and the Hon. Thos. J. Durant, of Louisiana, and the third, the Hon. Gustavus V. Fox, late assistant Secretary of the Navy,--who would have a knowledge of the course involved in the proceedings, with the right to appeal from the judgment of the admiralty court to the Supreme Court. When I presented this agreement to the Attorney-General, he said: Who ever heard of a question of prize being submitted to arbitration? Have you got any precedent for it? No, Mr. Attorney-General, I have not, but I do not see why you should object. If we go on and try under arbit
