by this Government, accepted by the English Government, and placed at fifteen and a half millions by the Geneva Award, for losses inflicted by the Alabama, Florida, and Shenandoah, alone. One hundred and eight other ships were destroyed, the loss of which may be placed at five millions, but for which no damage was recovered. It is needless to say that the principle which governed the Alabama Claims, and the award made thereunder, though perhaps applicable to the United States and Great Britain in future wars, was not at the time, is not now, and never will be, a principle of International Law, and the rights of a belligerent to obtain ships, unarmed and without a crew, from a neutral nation, still exist. We have endeavored, briefly, and with scant justice, to put before you the irremediable obstacles that forbade the creation of an effective navy for the Confederate States.

I believe Virginia alone in the late war produced more men for whom that title could be claimed than Great Britain in all her history. Heroes in abundance and accomplished officers she has produced; but her wars have been for the most part against inferiors—against Hindoos, and Persians, Afghans, Zulus, Chinese, Egyptians, Arabs and Matabeles. The greatndancy. Who, then, would you say next? Would you say Clive, the military statesman who conquered Hindoostan? He, who at the battle of Plassey, on the 23d of June, 1757, in Everett's fine words, laid the foundations of a subject Empire to Great Britain at the gates of the morning? When it is remembered that he dispersed the army of the Indian Nabob, estimated at sixty or seventy thousand, with a thousand European soldiers and two thousand Indian Sepoy troops, and that his training was that
