The Daily Dispatch: April 3, 1862., [Electronic resource], The capture of the English steamer Labuan. (search)
account of the affair: The English merchant propeller Labuan, of Hull, 723 tons burden, left this port, arrived at Matamoras on the first of January last, and discharged her cargo of merchandize, consigned to Messrs Droege, Cetling & Co., merchants of that place. As all the commercial world knows, Matamoras is about forty miles from the mouth of the Rio Grande — As that river has a bar, vessels of heavy draft are compelled to anchor outside. For this reason, in the treaty of Guadalupe Hral waters of both nations were extended a marine league north and south of said river, which is considered the port of Matamoras. The Labuan had dispatched for Havana the 24th of January. She had on board 439 bales of cotton, of which 269 are rs. Jersey & Co, of Manchester, and the 170 remaining belong to Don Francisco Armandacz, a Spanish merchant residing in Matamoras. The Captain had gone to the mouth of the river with the rest of the cargo and $150,000 in silver. He was detained th
Foreign vessels at the South of the Riogrande. --The Galveston News, of the 15th ult, has private advices direct from Brownsville, from which we learn that there are now 16 foreign vessels loaded with merchandize, consigned to Matamoras, but none of them are allowed by the Lincoln block aders to enter or to discharge their cargoes, unless the different foreign Consuls will give bonds that the goods shall not cross the river into Texas. The Consuls are awaiting instructions from their respective Governments.
