The Retaliatory Measures.
In another column will bo found an
article taken from the Richmond En
irer, setting forth 11% retaliatory
measures adopted by the miscreants of
the South, for the purpose of inter
rupting our government in the punish
ment of their pirates caught at sea.—
Col. Corcoran is to receive the same
fate as the arch-demon Smith, sentenced
to death in Philadelphia, and thirteen
others to share the same end for thir
teen,rebel pirates convicted and con
deMted in New York.• Vas ever a
more diabolical scheme concocted by
mortal man ? Are they savages or
are they civilized human beings? The
brave and fearless Corcoran's life de
pending upon the fate of a traitor to
the land that gave him birth,—a trai
tor to the government, that has nour
ished and fed him since the day he left
his mother's knee. It is inhuman and
unnatural. Col. Corcoran is to die for
no other crime than that of defending
his country, which must be a heinous
offense in the eyes of the rebels, and
Smith to die for attempting to destroy
the government he has sworn to pro
tect, defend, and cherish during his
life. We do not know what disposi
tion will be made of the matter. We
leave it to wiser heads than ours to
adjust. We hope, although we would
deplore the death of any of the brave
men whO have been chosen as sacrifi
ces for the lives of the condemned in
oar, hands, that they will not be al
towed to go unpunished.

Cost of the Late Battle.
The Wabash fired, dating the .entire
action, 900 shots, being all 8, 9,10 and
11-inch shells, with the exception of a
few rifled cannon projectiles of a new
pattern, and which were used simply
as a matter of experiment. The,'Sus
quehanna fired 500 shots, the Bienvillo
185, and the average of the gunboats
and the other smaller ships may prob
ably be set down at 150 each. There
were, in all, 16 vessels engaged on our
side, and probably from all of them
were fired not far from 3,500 shot and
shell at the two forts, Walker and
Beauregard, the four gun battery and
the three steamers.
The average cost of each shot, reck
oning shell, round shot, and rifled can
non projectiles of peculiar make, and
taking into account the value of the
powder used to fire them, may be set
down at about $B. Thfis the burned
powder and broken shell, iron, of the
battle'of Port Royal maY be set down
as having cost the country not less
than $28,000. Reckoning, then, says
the Now York Tribune, a few items of
this' battle, beginning with the im
mense cost of this fleet, which has been
preparing since August last, the pay
of the soldiers, the value of their food,
and the expense of the two lost ves
sels on a very moderato, scale, the en
tire cost is about as follows:

The Cost of the War on Both Sides.
(From the Sm./moult Iteruhlteatt, Nov. 54
The expenses of the Confederate
States during the last six months are
acknowledged to be fifty millions of
dollars, and the war expenses of the
United States, for 'the* sane time,'are
acknowledged to be two hundred mil
lions of dollars,. The, number of mon
slain in battle, in the &then or twenty
actions, great and small, that have ta
ken place between the two belligerents
since the war opened in the taking of
Fort Sumpter,cannot be easily estima
ted, but, as near as we can learn, it is
in the proportion of about ono to five,
and may be set down in round numbers
at 2,000 Confederates and 10,000 Fed
er*. This shows that every Hessian
killed by us has cost the Confederate
Government $5,000 dollars, and that
every Southerner killed in battle has
cost the Federal Government the. round
sum of $lOO,OOO. The Southern States
can raise about one million and a half
of fighting men.•' To kill' off these at
the above rate—and killing is proba

sand millions of dollars ! Would it hot
be cheaper, as well as more humane,
in Mr.Lincoln' and his Cabinet, to make
arrangements for trying to buy us out?
The Legality of the Action of Com-
The opinion that the act of Commo
dore Wilkes was fully justified by the
usages of all civilized nations, and by
well-settled principles of international
law, is confirmed by numerous prece
dents, and by quotations from the
writings of reliable authors.
Chitty, a standard English law wri
ter, says, in his " Law of Nations,"
On the same principle on which con
trabands of war and infractions of
blockade have been interdicted in the
commerce of neutaals—l mean the
principle that a neutral has no right
to relieve a belligerent—it has been
held that other acts of illegal assistance
afforded to s an enemy expose to confis
cation the property of the neutral con
cerned in them. Among these, none is
of a more injurious nature than time con
veyance of hostile despatches. The mis
chievous consequence of such a service is
indefinite, infinitely beyond the effect of
any contraband that can be conveyed.
The carrying of two or three cargoes of
stores is necessarily an assistance of a
limited nature; but in the transmission
of despatches may be conveyed the entire
plan of a campaign, that my defeat all
the projects of the other belligerent in that
quarter of the world.
Again, Mr. Chitty says :
Equally intolerable is the employ
ment of a neutral ship as a transport
for the private men,
or for the officers
of the enemy. * Any one of these
acts being brought to light, there can
remain no doubt respecting the unfidr
ness of that specific transaction. *
Upon the breaking out of a war—here
ho quotes Sir William Scott—it is the
right of neutrals to carry on their ac
customed trade, with the exception of
the particular cases of a trade to block
aded places, or in contraband articles,
(in both of whie'z cases their property
is liable to be condemned,) and oftheir
ships being liable to visitation and search,
in which case, however, they aro en
titled to freight and expenses.
Mr. Phillimore, " Advocate of her
Majesty in her office of Admiralty and
Judge of the Cinque Ports," says, iu
his " Commentaries on International
Law," that it is competent to a belliger
ent to stop the ambassador of his enemy
on his passafe.—(Puo 303.) On page
370 he says
SEC. 273; " Official communication
from an official on the affairs of a bel
ligerent Govern ment are such despatch
es as impress' a hostile character on the
carriers of them. The mischievous
consequences of such a service cannot
be estimated, and extend far beyond
the effect of any contraband that can
be conveyed ; for it is manifest that by
the carriage of such despatches the
most important operations of a bellig
erent army may be forwarded or ob
structed. In general cases of contra
band the quantity of the article , car
ried may be a material circumstance
but the smallest despatch may, serve
to turn the fortunes of war in flavor of
a particular belligerent." See. 274.
" The penalty is confiscation of the
ship which conveys, the despatches
and of the cargo.'
Chancellor Kent, in speaking
right of search, saya r inhis—Commen-•
taries, volUme one, page 154:
All writers upon the law of nations,
and the highest authorities, acknowl
edge the right, in time of war, as rest
ing upon sound principles of public
jurisprudence and upon, the institutes
and practice of all great Maritime Pow
ers ; and if, upon making the search,
the vessel be found employed in the
contraband trade, or in carryins ene
my's property, or troops or, de.spatehes,
she is liable to be taken and brought
in for adjudication before a prize court.
Wheaton in his work on the law of
nations, coincides with the views of
the other publicists whom we have
quoted. He says, (page 529:)
Of the same nature with the carry
ing of contraband goods is thetranspor
tation of military persons or despatches
in the service of the enemy. g: * * As to
the number of military persons neces
sary to subject the vessel to confisca
tion, it is difficult to define, since fewer
persons of high quality and character may
be of much more importance Hum a much
greater number of persons of lower con
dition. To carry a veteran general,
under some circumstances, might be a
much more noxious act than the con
veyance of a whole regiment. The
consequence of such assistance' are
greater, and, therefore, the belligerent
has a stronger right to prevent, and
punish it. Nor is it material, in the
judgment of the prize court, whether
the master be ignorant of the service
in which he is engaged. It is deemed
sufficient if there has been an injury
arising to the belligerent from the em
ployment in which the vessel is found.
* * Thefraudulently carrying the de
spatches of the enemy will also subject the
neutral vessel in which they are transpor
ted to capture and confiscation.
The case of despatches (continues
Wheaton) is a service which, in what
ever degree it exists, can only be con
sidered in one character---aS cm act of
the most hostile nature. The offence of
fraudulently carrying despatchesin
the service of the enemy, being then,
greater than that of carrying, contra
band, under any circumstances, it be
comes absolutely necessary, as well as
just, to resort to some other penalty
than that inflicted in cases of contra
band. The confiscation of:the noxious
article would be ridiculous''when ap
plied to despatches. The vehicle in
which they. are carried must,,therefore
be.corifiscateth" , . ,j
The _Aral' fpnal Intelligencer expresses
the following' dear and' nnequivoeal
opinions, and fully sustains, them by
some of the quotations, we hayo given
above, and others ofequal :
Those, therefore, who are not al
ready familiar with tho principles in
volved in the proceeding of Captain
Wilkes, will learn with interest that it is
fully justified by the rules of internation
al law, as those rules have been expound
ed by the most illustrious British jurists
and compiled by the most approved wri
ters on the Laws of Nations. So far
from having transcended the powers
with which be was clothed , by that
code, Capt. Wilkes did not exhaust the
full measure of his authority, for he
not only had an undoubted right to
arrest "these ~, Nmbassadors!'„ of. the
Confederate Government on their pas
sage to Europe, but might have justly
captured the vessel on which they
wore found, and brought her into port
to be condemned as lawful prize.
The points of public law involved in
the case, and on which it turns, are as
1. The rights visiting and search
ing merchant ships on the high seas,
whatever be the ships, their cargoes,
or their destinations, Is an incontesta
ble right of the lawfully-commissioned
cruisers of a belligerent nation. Being
a purely belligerent right, essential to
the capture of enemy's property and
the discovery of contraband of war on
board of neutral vessels, it is, from its
very nature and definition, incompe
tent to a state of peace, but accrues to
each belligerent on the outbreak of
2. To engage in the transportation
of military persons, bearers of des
patches, and despatches them Selves, is
of the same nature with the carrying
of contraband goods, and a vessel so
engaged in the service of one belliger
ent is subject to capture and confisca
tion by the other.
3. A belligerent may lawfully arrest
an ambassador of the adverse belliger
ent, if found at sea in a neutral vessel
on his passage, nud therefore before he
has arrived in the neutral country, or
has assumed the functions of his office
near the Government to which he is
accredited. But, when be has arrived,
and been admitted in his official rela
tion, ho is protected by his representa
tive and international character.
4. The fact that the voyage is made
to a neutral port does not change the
legal character of the transaction,
where contraband of war—including,
of course, military persons, despatches,
and their bearers—is found on a neu
It is alio worthy of remark that the
declaration of war by England against
Iluesia, of the 28th March, 1854, con
tains the following language:
"It is impossible for Her Majesty to
forego her right of seizing articles con
traband of war, and of preventing neu
trals front bearing enemies' despatches."
And in the recent proclamation of
neutrality, of May 18,1861, made with
reference to the very war now going
on between the Government of the
United States and the rebels of the
South, the following language was
used by the British Ministers: - -
And we do hereby warn all our lov
ing subjects, and all persons whatso
ever entitled to our protection, that if
any of them shall presume, in con
! tempt of this our royal proclamation
and of cur high displeasure, to do any
acts in derogation of their duty as
s4jects of a neutral sovereign in the
said contest, or in violation or contra
vention of the law of nations in that
behalf - , as for example and more espe
cially by entering into the military
service of either of the said contending
parties, * 4 ' or by carrying officers,
soldiers, despatches, arms, military
stores, or materials, or any article or
articles considered and deemed to be con
traband of tear, according to the law or
modern usage of 'lotions, for the use or
service of either of the said contending
parties—all persons so offending will

alties and penal consequences by the
said statute, or • by the law of nations
' in that behalf imposed, or denounced.
And we do hereby declare that 'MI our

peril, and of their own- wrong,. and
