The Daily Dispatch: February 4, 1861., [Electronic resource], The seizure of the New Orleans Mint, &c. (search)
The seizure of the New Orleans Mint, &c. There can be no doubt of the truth of the seizure of the New Orleans mint and customhouse by the Louisiana revolutionists, that comes this morning by telegraph. To-day, the Treasury Department were notified by Adams & Co.'s express, that A. J. Guirot, the Superintendent of the New Orleans mint, and Assistant United States Treasurer there, had refused to pay a draft of the Department for $300,000, placed in their hands for transfer to Philadelphia.

Yet it is obvious that unless Virginia is prepared to become the os coccygis of the A bolition Empire, she must go with the seceding States "But you shall not go," says Seward, "we will whip that idea out of you." So 200 more men are ordered to Fortress Monroe, and General Scott declares that if any demonstration is made against it, the troop are ordered to destroy all the buildings around it including the hotel, and every thing in it. Adams, son of old John Quincey, made a very decent sort of Republican speech in the House yesterday. Taken in connection with Seward's "fraternal" sentiments, this speech might have some significance, if we did not know that it had been squeezed out at the very last moment, by the enormous pressure of hard times in Boston. Concessions yielded under compulsion are of little value, and should not be entitled to much respect. The prospects of the Peace Congress get gloomier and gloomier every d
