The Daily Dispatch: June 5, 1863., [Electronic resource], Attempt to obtain the proceeds of the Confederate loan in Paris. (search)
inning of 1863 the applicants had undertaken the negotiation of a loan for the Confederate States, but their operations were suddenly paralyzed by a notice of seizure of its proceeds, served on them at the instance of M. M. Dupasseur & Co., ship owners of Havre, who alleged that they had a claim on the Confederate Government for a million of franc, as an indemnity for the willful destruction of their ship, the Lemuel Dyer, with a cargo of 2,683 bales of cotton, when leaving New Orleans in April, 1862. France not having recognized the Confederate States, Dupasseur & Co. could not obtain a remedy by diplomatic means, and therefore adopted the expedient of seizing the proceeds of the loan.

The following is the opinion of the Court of Inquiry convened at Jackson, Mississippi, under special orders from the War Department, to examine and report the facts and circumstances attending the capture of New Orleans by the enemy in April, 1862, and the defence of the city by the Confederate troops under General Mansfield Love. 1. As against a land attack by any force the enemy could probably bring the interior line of fortifications, as adopted and completed by Major-General Lovell, was a sufficient defence of the city of New Orleans; but his ability to hold that line against such an attack was greatly impaired by the withdrawal from him, by superior authority, of nearly all his effective troops. 2. The exterior line, as adopted and improved by him, was well devised, and rendered as strong as the means of his command allowed. 3. Until the iron-clad gunboats Louisiana and Miss
