ail myself of this opportunity to correct an error in one of the statements made in my message of the 29th April. It is there recited that I was prompted to call you together, in extraordinary session, by reason of the declarations contained in the proclamation of President Lincoln of the 15th April.--My proclamation convoking you was issued on the 12th of April, and was prompted by the declaration of hostile purposes, contained in the message sent by President Lincoln to the Governor of South Carolina, on the 8th April. As the proclamation of President Lincoln, of the 15th April, repeated the same hostile intention, in more specific terms and on a much more extensive scale, it created a stronger impression on my mind, and led to the error above alluded to, and which, however unimportant, I desire to correct. Jefferson Davis. Montgomery, May 8, 1861. Washington, City, April 13, 1861. Sir: On the 15th March, ult., I left with Judge Crawford, one of the Commissioners
The Daily Dispatch: may 16, 1861., [Electronic resource], Home manufacture of percussion caps. (search)
Home manufacture of percussion caps. --Nothing more was needed to develop the industrial resources and energies of the South than the suspension of trade with the North, which the Yankees, unluckily for themselves, have just occasioned. As soon as the fact became known that a more abundant supply of percussion caps would be desirable for the Southern troops, we find manufactories starting up in each of the Confederate States. We were gratified yesterday on being presented with one of the first percussion caps made in South Carolina. We are informed that the new caps are found to be in every respect equal to those made by the United States Government, and Messrs. Cameron & Co. are now engaged making the machinery by which they can be produced in large quantities.--Charleston Mercury.
e resolution was laid on the table. The committee on time and place of next meeting reported, through Rev. S. Landrum, in favor of Friday before the second Sabbath in May, 1863--the place Columbus, Mississippi--preacher Rev. Wm. Williams, of S. C.; Alternate, Rev. J. L. Burrows, of Va. The report was laid on the table temporarily. Rev. George Bushyhead, a Cherokee Indian, was introduced by Rev. S. Landrum, and addressed the Convention in favor of his church and congregation in North Carolina. Rev. J. P. Boyce, of S. C., offered the following: Resolved, That a special committee of five be appointed to consult with the Board of the Southern Baptist Publication Society as to the possibility of a Union of the Bible Board and that Society; and if a union be found practicable, which will not conflict in any way with the Constitution of the Convention or that Society, and which in their judgment will increase the efficiency of the Bible Board, the committee be dir
The Coercive policy. --To show still further the extent of the policy adopted by the Federal Administration, we copy the following circular of instruction to Collectors and other officers of the customs on the Northern and Northwestern waters of the United States: On the 19th day of April, 1861, the President of the United States, by proclamation, declared the ports of South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas under blockade, and on the 27th of the same month, by another proclamation, declared the ports of Virginia and North Carolina also under blockade, since which proclamation this Department has received reliable information, that attempts are frequently made to furnish arms, munitions of war, provisions and other supplies to persons and parties in those States in open insurrection against the constitutional authorities of the Union. It becomes my duty, therefore, to instruct you to cause a careful examination to be made of the manifest
