The Daily Dispatch: January 19, 1861., [Electronic resource], Arrival from the "Foreign" port of Charleston, S. C. (search)
ort. The bill of health is in the usual United States form, with the caption, "The United States of America," crossed out with a pen, and the words, "District of the Port of Charleston, State of South Carolina," printed in the margin. After "the 85th year of the," the words "Independence of the United States of America" are crossed out, and below is written, "Sovereignty and Independence of the State of South Carolina." The Secessionists thus claiming an independency co-existent with that of the Union from which they have seceded. The clearance paper has undergone the same erasures and interlineations. They were signed by W. F. Colcock, Collector, and John Lawrence, Naval Officer. The Custom-House officers not having been notified that South Carolina was out of the Union, refused to enter the vessel under the bogus papers, and as Capt. Ryder sails under a coastwise license, it was not regarded as necessary that he should have cleared at all from Charleston.--Boston Journal.
