the Removal of General Fremont
--Nothing but an imperious demand from the public interests induces the Government
to supersede General Fremont
The Attorney General
is unreserved in the expression of his opinion censuring General Fremont
He does not hesitate to pronounce his retention in office as a public crime.
Public notice was given that the Savannah
blockade would be violated by the British steamer Bermuda
, and the information was communicated to Lord Lyons.
He was told that a part of the freight of the Bermuda
would probably be 70 tons of powder, Enfield
rifles, 50 rifled cannon, 60,000 percussion caps
, a large quantity of blankets, clothing, quinine, and morphine.
Remonstrances against the sailing of the Bermuda
, during the time she was completing her cargo, were made by Minister Adams
, but the Foreign Office did not feel at liberty to, or did not, recognize the obligation to arrest the assumed unlawful voyage.
