lUii North Caiioi.in a, in thk r ial. i, August
-, lHtit. Hon. Hubert Ould, Commissioner of
'.xchunge : Sir : Your note to Major Mulfnrd
Vssistnut Agent of Kxehunge, under date of loth
Vngutf, has been referred to me.
Yo therein stutc that Major Mulford has sevc
al timci proposed to exchange prisoners rcpoc
tvcly held by the two belligerents, oilleer for
)ffleer and man for man, and flint "the oiler has
ilno been made by other otli.iuls having charge
if mutters connected with the exchange of pri
loners," and that "this proposal has been hcre
ofore declined by the Confederate authorities."
rtiat you now consent to the hIioyc proposition,
ind agree to deliver to you (Major Mulford) the.
jiriforiers held in captivity by too Confederate
iiithoritlea, provided you ugree to deliver an
squal number of olllcers and men. As cpial
anmbers are delivered, from timu to time, they
will be, declared exchanged. This proposal is
made with the understanding that the oilleor
ind men on both sides who have been longest in
raptivlty will be first delivered, where it is prac
ticable. From a Blight ambiguity In your phraseology,
tint more, perhaps, from the iiriiccedcnt aciion of
four authorities, and lucause of your acceptance
fit, 1 am in doubt whether you have stated the
proposition with entire accuracy.
It is true, a proposition was made lxitli by
Major Mullord and by myself, as Agent of Kx
rhauce. to exchange all prisoners of war taken
I either belligerent party, man for man, ollicer
lw oilleer, of equal rank, or their equivalents. It
was made by me as early as the Unit of the winter
of IHtill-tH. and has. not been accented, in May
last I forwarded to you a note, desiring to know
whether the Confcdoru'o authorities Intended to
treat colored soldiers of Ihu United .States urmy
prisoners of war. lotbai inquiry no answer
has yet been made. To avoid all poi-sihle iiiisan
prchension or mistake hereafter as to your oiler
now, will you now say whether you mean by
"nrisoners held in captivity," colored men, duly
enrolled, and musterid into the service of the
United Suites, who have been raptured by the
Confederate forces; and if your authorities nre
willing to exchange all soldiers so mustered into
the United Slates army, whether colored or othc
wise, end the oillccri commanding them, mnufor
man, oflicer lor oincer f
At the interview whi.'h was held between your
self and the Agent of lixchange on the part of
the United states, ut fortress Monroe, in March
last, you will do me the favor to remember the
principal dbcussicn turned upon this very point
you, ou behalf of the Confederate (iovernmcnt,
claiming the right to hold ail negroes, who had
heretofore been slaves, and not emancipated by
their masters, enrolled and mustered into the ser
vice of the United States, win n captured hy your
forces, not as prisoners of war, but upon capture
to be turned over to their supposed musters or
claimant, whoever they HibjUt be, to be held uy
tliein as slaves.
Bv the advertisements in your newsnapsrs
railing upon masters to come forward and claim
these men so captured, 1 suppose that your
authorities still adhere to that claim that is to
nay, that whenever a colored soldier of the
United States is captured by you, upon whom
any claim can be made by any person residing
within the States now in insurrection, suelt sjI
dier is not to be treated as n prisoner of war, but
Is to be turned over to his supposed owner or
claimant, and put at Mich labor or service us that
owner or cla.tnant may choose, and the oitie'crs
in c mmand of Burn soldiers, in the language ot
iuppo.-ed act of the Conteder.itc States, are to
be turned over to the Govern rs of Stales, upon
leuuisiiions, lor the purpose of being pitnlsiiel
by the laws ot such States, lor ucs done in war

You must be uwtirc that there is still a procla

substance that all olllcers ol colored troops inns

1 am reciting these public nets from memory.
and will be pardoned lor not giving tue exaci
words, although 1 believe I do not vary the sub
stance and effect.
1 These declarations on the part of those whom
you represent jet remain unrepealed, unannuiled
unrivoked. and must, thciel re, lie .still sup
posed to be nuthoriiative. liy your acceptance of
our proposition, is the (iovernment ot tho I niieu
States to under-tnnd that these several claims

lie given up, act aside, revoked, and held for

you are ready and willing lo exchange nun for

duly mustend and enrolled us such, who have
heretolore beeu claimed as slaves by the Con

If this be so, and you arc so wlllin; to exchange

Such declaration that a part of the colored jI
dicrs of the United Suites were to he prisoners of
war would seem most strongly to imply that
others were not to be so treated, or iu other
words, that the colored men from the insurrec
tionary Suites arc to be held to labor and returned
to Iht fr masters, if captured by tho Confederate
forces while duly enrolled and musuired into, and
itetuiilly iu the armies of the United States.
In the view which the Government of th 3
United Slates takes of the claim made by you to
tho persons and services of these negroes, it is not
to be supiKirted upon any principle of national or
Looking upon these men only as property.
unon your theory of property iu them, wo do uot
see how this claim can be made, certainly not
how it can be yielded. It is believed to be a
well-ieitled rule oi public International law, and
a custom and part of the laws of war, that the
caDtureot movaiiie properly vests the title to
that property in the captor, aud thereioro where
one belligcieui gen iiuo iuh Huaiou pioHTiy
belonging lo the subjects or citl.ens of the other
belligerent, ihe owner of that property is at ouce
divested of bis title, which rests lu the belligerent
Government capturing and holding such posses
sion. Upon this rule of internaiioual law all
civilized nations have acted, aud by it botn belli
gerents have dealt with all property, save slaves,
taken from each other during the present war.
If the Confederate forces capture a number of
Iiorses from the United States, the auimals Im
mediately are claimed to be and, as we understand
it, becomes the property of the Confederate
, If the United Slates capture any movable pro
perty in the Itei cliion, by our regulations and
laws, in conlormily with international law, and
the laws of war, such property is turned over to
our Government as its properly. Therefore, It
we obuin possession of Unit species of propeit)
known to the laws of the insurrectionary h'.ute
an slaves, why should tuiu 1 auy doubt tUal
vcti iii the United
If the proretv in the slave does o vent, then
the 'jut tit. ftrnt.'i." the right of d;)cBing of
that ptnpeviy, test in the United states.
Now, t'e United States h ive disposed of tlirj
pro; city which they have acquired by capture In
slaves (nken by them, by giving that right of pro.
pirtj to the man hlnm lf, to the slave, . e. by
eniancipa ing him and declining him free for
ver. so that il we nave not mistaken me princi
iih s of intirnatienal law and the laws of war we
liHvr no slaves in the annici of the I nite 1 States.
All arc free men, being made s i in stn li maimer
r wo Imve chosen todi-poseof our property in
tlnm which we acquired by raptnte.
Slaves being raptured by as, ami tne rigut oi
rori rtv in them thereby vested In us, tha' right
ol property has been disp iseit of by ns by manu
mitting ttirm, its na always nccn trie iiesuow-
le.tged right of the owner to do to hl slave. I h"
liianmr in wblcli we o iose oi our property
Idle it Is In our possession certainly e iniiot he
questioned by you.
Ivor is iiio case aucren it me property is noi
actually raptured in battle, but conn s either
iluiitnrily or involuntarily from the lielhgerent
owittr into the possession of tho o'her belligerent.
bike it no one would doubt tho right ot tha
United Stales to a drove of Confederate niulos, or
a herd of Confederate cattle, which should wan
der or rush across ihe Confederate lines into the
lines of the United suites army. Ho it seems to
me, treating the negro us propcrtv merely, If that
piece of property passes the Confederate lines,
and comes into the lines of the United States, that
pros ity is as much lost Ui its owii-t in the Con
federate Sta'cs as would be the mu'e or ox, the
prep rtv of the resident of the Confederate States,
which should fall into our hands.
If, therefore, the privilege of international law
mid the laws of war used in this discussion are
correctly stated, then it would seem that the de
duction logically llows therefrom, in natural
sequence, that the Confederate States can have
no claim upon the negro soldiers captured by
them from tho armies of the United States,
because of the former ownership of them by
the ir citizens or subjects, and only claim such as
rt suit, under tho laws or war, from their captor
Do the Confederate authorities claim the rurlit
tn reduce lo a stato of slavery free men, prisoners
of war captured by them ? This claim our
fathers fought against under II linbrhlge aud De-
ettir, wbeu set up nv tne lurnnry rowers on tne
Northern shore of Africa, about the year Ihisi,
nil in 1SC4 their children will hardly yield it
upon their own soil.
1 ins point l win not pursno runner, oeeanse i
nmn rtniid vou to repudiate the idea that you
w ill reduce free men lo slaves because of rapture
in war, and that you base the claim of the Con
fidence authorities to re-enslave our negro sol
diers, when captured by vou, upon tho "jut txist
limini," or that principle of the iaw of nitious
which inluibibUiti s tne former owner wittilns
property taken hyan enemc. when such property
is recovered by the forces of Ins own country.
(Ir in other words, you claim that, bv the laws
of nutlons und of war, w hen property of the sub
jects of rnio belligerent rower, i imtured bn tho
forces of the other belliuercnt, is recaptured by
the armies of the former ow ner, then such pro
perty is to be restored to its prior possessor, us it
it had never been captured, and, therefore, tin lur
this principle your authorities propose to restore
to tin ir masters the slaves which heretofore bo-
lonecd to them which you may caoture from ns.
I. ut Ibis post liminiuy right under which you
claim to net, ns lied rstood und d' lined by all
writers on national law, is applicable simply to
immnrabUt jiraprrty, and that too, only after the
complete resubjiigation of that portion of the
country In which the property is situated, upon
which this right fastens itself. liy the laws and
eusii mi of war, this right lias never been ap
plied to mornhtr propeify.
'l ine, it is, 1 believo, that the Romans at
tempted to apply it to the ease of slaves, but for
two thousand years no other nnth n has attempted
to set up this right as ground for t. cuing slaves
dilloumly from other property.
Hut the Homans even icfiiscd to re-cnslavo
men ruptured from opposing belligerents in a
civil war, such ns ours unhappily is.
Consistently thin with any principle of the law
of nations, treating slaves us property merely, It
would seem to be lniKssible for the Government
of the United Suites to permit tho negroes in
their rani s to be re enslnved when captured, or
treated otherwise than as prisoners of war.
1 have forborne, sir, in this discussion, to argue
the question upon uny other or dilleicnt grounds
ol r'ptit man ttiosc udoptcu uy youriinuioriiics
in claiming the negro as property, because 1

Mould not be profitable In settling a question of
exchange of prisoners of war to attempt t ur'ue
the question ol abandonment of the very c irner
stone of their attempted political edifice. Thero-

taking advantage of the recess, hasteued with

To the .Managing Directors Peninsular and
Oriental Steam Navigation Company: Gen
tlemenI beg to report the arrival of this shiput
the above pott, all well, at 9 P M. this day. Pine
weather has been experienced throughout the
iuissnitr. On the I. I'll Instant, ut 2 P. M., (treat
luriiigs bearing N. K., eight lo nine miles dis
tant, we passed close to two screw steam vessels,
both ander steam, but hove to with their heads
in shore. The l imer of those was evidently an
American built frigate, and was Hying the fede
'Ihe smaller was an Fnglish built vessel, n
about seven hundred to eight hundred tons, with
out any Hag living, and was deeply laden. On
her sltrn was wti'tcn in white letters (appircntly
quite recently donel, "fi'i'oi'irt, Liverpool." She
whs brig rigged, with bowsprit and jib-boom, and
bad a hlu k I u line I placed rather further forward
than It is iu the generality of merchant steamers.
Heavily laden boats were frequently passing from
the smaller to the larger vessel, and I observed in
one that was In transit at the time of our passing
under tho stern of tho frigate a nuantity of se i
ini n's ehi sts anil bedding, i he frigate had tackles
at both of her lower yard arms, and she hoisted
la r pinnace out soon after we passed her. Pre
patunons also appealed to be going on for hoist
ing In heavy weights.
On the poop of the smaller vessel wero sever al
otlii ers in American naval uniform, and a num
ber if men, evidently belonging to the frigate,
all fully armed. The larger ship appeared tu be
upwards of three thousand tons, full rigged, with
two black funnels, with white bund six loot from
the tup; sho had a large gilded eagle on her
stern, mid altogether appeared very like tin
Atntiiean screw strain frigate .N innarn. Iloats were
passing between the ships ns long us we could
discern them. The sea was very smooth, and the
weather fine. 1 am, Ac.,

She arrived at Liverpool a fAv mouths ago, and
was publicly sold to Mr. Bites, of that port, fir
i'l'i (HO or I'll! IHH); was subsequently takon up
by the Portuguese Government for tho convey
ance of mails from Liverpool, Lisbon, to the
Azores ami buck ; and tt appears she was in transit
to those ports when her capture was made, with
her cargo, (she was insured, at l.toyu 8 on a
policy not free from capture.

The llt nrtiia left Greenock on the 2d of April,
1Kb;!, under the name ot iIioJukiii. Subsequently
she was known as tho Virginia; but, iu reality,
she bus always been the pirate llenrqia. She is
nil iron ship, with very lino lines for speed, of
about six hundred (llrplsh) tons register, with
engines of three hundred horse power, ller crew
weic originally shipped for two years, at very
high wages, and it was said tho was bound for
the China seas.
From Greenock the Crorgia proceeded to the
i oast of France, where, Irom thu British steamer

rdi.unee stores, Ac., nnd then hoisted the Rebel
Hug. On reaching tho cruising grounds tho

At the time of the sailing of tho Untniia. she
was owned bv'lhomas Hold, an Kngii-diiiiati, of

Mr. Thomas Bold, of the firm of Jones ,V Co.,

she arrived at St. Simon's bay, Cape of Good

next we heard of her was oil Kingston, Jamaica.
On tho :10th of October, 18'!:, she arrived at
Cherbourg, France. On the Uth ol April, lstil,
she was in Bordeaux, and presently she turned

Thb Prait. Wo have the satisfaction of
knowing that, through the constant appeals of
Tub Tblbokai'h, several of the Wards of our
city have been successful in lilling their quota
by obtaining credit for naval enlistments, as also
by raising sufficient funds to enlist recruits Into
Ihe service. The draft, which was expected to
bike place on tho fit li instunt, has been post
poned at loust no orders have been received by
the Provost Marshals to enforce it and there
fore additional lime is allordcd other Wards to
follow Ihe example of those to which wo have
referred. It is proven, beyond doubt, that re
cruits can be obtained in large numbers, if Ihe
sufllcient gicenbacks aro ouly furnished thu
diflereiit Ward Committees to secure these men;
and we trust that none of our citizens will fur a
moment cease their labors to accomplish the con
summation of this desired end.
An ndioiirned meeting of the citizens of the
Ninth Ward will be held to-nlghi at the National
Hull, Market street above lweltlh, winch every
enrolled riii.en should attend.

Messrs. Wells, Fargo k Co.'s Prloe Current,
under date of San Francisco, August 12, sdys :
"We have to remark an nnusually quiet mar
ket for the pust len days. Transactions from im
porters' hands huve been vory moderate, and to
make sales of any moment, they have been almost
invariably obliged to resort to tne auction rooms,
and even then wero not always successful.
We observe no marked change la the Money
Market since our last report. The demand In
commercial circles is light, trade being dull, and
merchants generally Indisposed to operate in ad
vance of wants. For speculative and niinVu
stock puriosts the requirement is active, owing
lo the buoyancy in certain leading shares; ana
s me negotiations have been made, though the
bankers continue to ret thoir faces ajainst the
description of collateral usually otfered in such
cases. We have 110 change to report in thu rate
of Interest ; H per rent, per month still rules for
prime short pajier."
