The delegates concluded by stating that they should remain in London for the present, in the hope that the recognition of the Southern Confederacy would not be long delayed, I am, &c., J. Russell The letter of Messrs. Yancey, Rost and Mann. Following the above is a letter addressed by the Commissioners to Earl Russell dated London, August 14. It begins with an allusion to the purposes of the Southern people in throwing off their allegiance to the Federal Government, and argues the question of the right of secession with ability and dignity. It then reviews the previous efforts of the Commissioners to impress the British Government with a sense of the rights justly belonging to the Confederacy, and proceeds as follows: In the interview already alluded to as well as in one of a similar character held between your lordship a

Semmes, of the Sumter. &c., &c., &c., &c., The New York papers of Feb. 26, received at this office on Friday evening last, contain full details of news by the Niagara, which had already been briefly forwarded by telegraph. We extract a portion of the papers relating to the war in America, published in the London Post, of February, 8th, omitting the earlier correspondence, which dates as far back as November, 1860, and is of no possible interest or importance at the present day. With a view to preserve, as history, the official record of the mission of Messrs. Yancey, Rost, and Mann, we commence with. Lord Russell's interview with the Southern Commissioners. Lord Russell, in a dispatch addressed to Lord Lyons on the 11th May, gives an account of an interview he had held with Mr. Yancey and his colleagues. My Lord: On Saturday last I received at my house Mr. Yancey, Mr, Mann, an

l the 6th of January, when he received an unconditional discharge. It was also stated their other British subjects had been confined in the same prison, and subject to various restrictions. They had been treated in violation of international rights and privileges. He would not make any comments on the subject, because he could not bring himself to believe that the facts were as they had been stated. Earl Russell, who was very indistinctly heard, was understood to say that on the 29th of October, a letter was written to Lord Lyons by a Mr. Shepherd, saying that while traveling by railway — he had been an agent of the Grand Trunk Railway--he was arrested and sent to a prison in New York, on a charge of conspiracy against the United States. That gentleman further stated the charge was quite untrue, and that he was a loyal British subject. It further appeared that he was asked to take the oath of allegiance to the United States, and refused to do so. Lord Lyons sent a representat

suffering and inconvenience, to remain on prison rather than accept a discharge on such terms. He was after wards removed to another prison, and it was said that, after that time, Lord Lyons having interposed, he was offered his liberty on a condition only one degree less extraordinary than the former one, namely, that he would not engage in the service of the Southern States nor have they communication with the inhabitants. He refused that condition and he remained to prison from the 5th of October until the 6th of January, when he received an unconditional discharge. It was also stated their other British subjects had been confined in the same prison, and subject to various restrictions. They had been treated in violation of international rights and privileges. He would not make any comments on the subject, because he could not bring himself to believe that the facts were as they had been stated.

W. L. Yancey, P. A. Rost, A. Dudley Mann. Earl Russell's reply. Foreign Office, Aug. 24, 1861. The undersigned has had the honor to receive the letter of the 14th inst., addressed to him by Messrs. Yancey, Rost, and Mann, on behalf of the so-styled Confederate States of North American. The British Government do not pretend in any way to pronounce a judgment upon the questions in debate between the United States and their adversaries in North America; the British Government can only regret that these differences have unfortunately been submitted to the arbitrament of arm

for obvious reasons. But if the nations of the earth put it out of our power to pursue this course, is it generous to find fault with us because we do not pursue it? To show you the earnests desire which I had in the beginning of my cruiser to send my prizes in for adjudication rather than take the responsibility of sitting in judgment on them myself I send you enclosed a copy of a letter which I addressed to the Governor of the town of Cienfuegos, in the Island of Cuba, as early as the 6th of July last. This letter will explain itself, and I have only to remark with reference to it, that I had not at its date seen the Spanish proclamation. I rely upon your sense of justice to give place in your columns both to this communication and the letter. R. Semmes, Commander. Confederate States Navy. C. S. Steamer Sumter.
