Doc. 28.--the cutter McClelland.The following statement in relation to the surrender of the revenue cutter Robert McClelland, is derived from an official source: On the 19th of January, four days after Secretary Dix took charge of the Treasury Department, he sent Mr. Wm. Hemphill Jones, Chief Clerk in the First Comptroller's Office, to New Orleans and Mobile, to save, if possible, the two cutters on service there. Captain Morrison, a Georgian, in command of the Lewis Cass at Mobile, must have surrendered her before Mr. Jones' arrival. On the 29th of January, the Secretary received, in relation to the other, the following telegraphic dispatch from Mr. Jones:
To this dispatch Secretary Dix immediately returned the following answer, before published:
This dispatch must have been intercepted both at Montgomery and New Orleans, and withheld from Mr. Jones, and the treason of Captain Breshwood was consummated by means of a complicity on the part of the telegraph line within the States of Alabama and Louisiana.
