her and hoisted the colors appropriated to the military marines. The doctrine set forth in the above extracts clearly and incontrovertibly establish the claim of the Stonewall to the right and title of a Confederate man-of-war. This claim was immediately recognized by the Government at Madrid, so soon as counter representation was presented, and that international comity usually extended to belligerents was not denied the Stonewall. Neither was it withheld from the powerful man-of-war Niagara, for she too had put into Ferrol, not crippled nor in want of repairs, but simply to pay a visit, to enjoy the hospitalities of the port, or, as was said, to look after the Stonewall. On the same errand arrived the man-of-war steamer Sacramento in the port of Corunna, situated in the same crescent of the coast and distant from the entrances to. Ferrol only a few miles; so near that the departure of a vessel from the latter would be seen from the former. The telegraph wires had been brou

Falls, C. W., August 11, 1864. Hon. J. P. Benjamin, Secretary of State, C. S. A.: Sir — Since my last dispatch I have visited all the points in Canada at which it was probable any escaped prisoners could be found.

Here he remained some months, when he came to Canada, where he was joined by his family. He resided in Canada chiefly at the pleasant little city of Niagara, where from his modest cottage he could look out on the blue Ontario, or across the narrow river and see the flag of the United States floating from Fort Niagara, as a perpetual warning that there were sentinals watching the border and forbidding his return to the people and the State he loved so well. In August, 1866, he again went to Europe, taking his family with him, except his two eldest sons, and remained abroad nearly two years. His residence was chiefly in Paris, though he spent some time in England, visiting also Switzerland and Italy. He also made a trip to Egypt and the Holy Land. Returning to Canada in the fall of 1868, he found t
