See the extracts from the correspondence between Mr. Adams and Lord Russell. The United States, when a neutral, was famous all over the world for allowing belligerents to recruit and build ships in its ports. We ourselves have seen steamboat leads of recruits, with arms, going to Texas to fight Mexico. We have also seen more than one vessel built, or building, for the same service. The United States has no right to complain of any other country on this score.
