The Correspondence Which, Led Gen.
Webb, U. rS, Minister ; to Demand His
Passports. `,

CRY Telegraph to the Pittsburgh Gazette.l
NEW YORK, Tune 21.—The following is
a condensed account of Minister Webb's
correspondence with the - 13razilian Gov
ernment: In Octob-r, 1856, the Ameri
can whale ship Canada got ashore on the
Garris reefs, near the mouth of- the
Rio Grande del Norte. Brazilian
soldiers, in spite of , the re
monstrances of captain and crew,
seized the vessel and - selling her cargo
deposited the proceeds in the Brazilian
Treasury. Reclamation was made by
onr Government. The ownere , renewed
their claims in 1864, through Minister
Webb, for damages and Interest to the
amount of tlOO.OOO. Finally Minister
Webb was authorized tn‘compromise on
- the payment of 170,006, or one-fifth the
original amount. In April, the late
Baron de Calegipe, on behalf of the Bra
zilian Government, reiected thlioffer, on
the ground that the Brazilian Minister
at Washington had not advised his
Government, that he had been informed
by Mr. Seward of his having issued
renewed instructions to the Minister in
Brazil, and would wait until officially In
formed of the -fact through their own
Minister. General Webb wrote to the
Baron, protesting against his taking Buell
abaurd ground, and declaring that if it
Was; maintained he should ask for his
passports. On the first of May Minister
Webb received a note from the Brazilian
Foreign Office, stating no - disrespect
was intended toward him, but that
the American Government not hav
ing announced to • the Brazilian Min-:
later at Washington the result of the
reconsideration, nor of the issue of re
newed and modified instructions to Gen.
Webb, keeping his Gevernment in the
same state of uncertainty that it was in
and from which it cannot depart
except in such manner as shall have full
consideration for the respect due to its
Minister and from one Government to
the other.
On receiving this note, Gen. Webb re
plied in severe language, demanded his
passports and obtained them. As he was
preng to leave for home he
