Death of a U. S. Officer. --Com. Mayo, of the United States Navy, died at his residence in Anne Arundel county, Md., on the 18th ult. The deceased was an officer of the American Navy for over half a century, and served his country and defended its flag faithfully throughout that long period of time. The unhappy condition of the country deeply affected him, and probably hastened his death. The following letter to the President, tendering his resignation, shows the views he entertained of
e denied to millions of freemen the rights of the Constitution.
In its stead you have placed the will of a sectional party, and now demand submission in the name of an armed force.
As one of the oldest soldiers in America, I protest — in the name of humanity — against this "war against brethren." I cannot fight against the Constitution while pretending to fight for it. You will, therefore, oblige me by accepting my resignation. Most respectfully, Isaac Mayo, Captain United States Navy
