‘ "I have determined, [under date of August 17th.] that all vessels occupied in legitimate commerce, and proceeding from the ports of the Confederate States, shall be entered and cleared under the Confederate flag. They shall be duly protected by the authorities of the Island; and, further, all foreign consuls have been notified that interference on their part will not be tolerated."
