The Daily Dispatch: December 16, 1861., [Electronic resource], Federal relations with foreign Powers. (search)
is that out of which the constitution of this Union arose — namely, American independence — independence of all foreign control, alliance or influence. Next above it lies the conviction that neither peace, nor safety, nor public liberty, nor prosperity, nor greatness, nor empire, can be attained here with the sacrifice of the unity of the people of North America. Those who, in a frenzy of passion, are building expectations on other principles do not know what they are doing. Whenever one part of this Union shall be found assuming bonds of dependence or of fraternity towards any foreign people, to the exclusion of the sympathies of their native land, then, even if not before, that spirit will be reawakened which brought the States of this republic into existence, and which will preserve them united until the common destiny which it opened to them shall be fully and completely realized. I am, sir, respectfully, your obedient servant, Wm. H. Seward. William L. Dayton, &c., &c
Final Answer of Mr. Seward, &c. In our edition of Friday last appeared a special telegraphic dispatch, briefly referring to the subjoined letter. We publish it entire, as it is a matter of some importance at this time: Mr. Seward to Mr. Dayton. Department of State,Washington, Sept. 10, 1861. Sir: Your dispatch of August 22. (No. 35) has been received. I learn from it that Mr. Thouvenel is unwilling to negotiate for an accession by the United States to the declaration of the the confiscation of property of non-belligerent citizens and subjects in maritime war. You will inform Mr. Thouvenel that the proposed declaration, on the part of the Emperor, is deemed inadmissible by the President of the United States; and if it shall be insisted upon, you will then inform him that you are instructed for the present to desist from further negotiations on the subject involved. I am, sir, your obedient servant, William H. Seward. Wm. L. Dayton, Esq., &c., &c., &c.
