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
It is supposed at the Department, that in these seizures a million of the money of the Government
have fallen into the hands of the revolutionists.
Guirot's answer, on the presentation of the draft, was that ‘"the money in his custody was no longer the property of the United States
, but of the Republic
."’--Washington Star, Saturday.
