Mr. Kdwarns then proceeds to state that a person who, he hnliev*f, has hoc" It the ;iay of the Ruatdan govern ment, gave him a full explanation of the armament and destination of the "Manry." He, Mr. Kd wards. ''gather e<! from the person referred to" that, the plan of the "Munry" was to attack and capture one of the Canard Biitisb mail steamers, arm the price, and, after being joii-ed by other vessels cf the same construction, built and titled i ut by the Russian government, to proceed to at'aek the 1 B insh possession a" in the Bast Indies The reproif ntatlons eoncernieg the "Maur/," which Mr. Edwardf thus adopted, were so grossly improbable on their Ace, and had so much the air of a contrivance to Impose on him, and through him, the British Consul, as to produce some heeita'ioniu my mind at to the proprie ty of insM>utlog process In the case: but the specific and posiiiye statements of Cornell and Craft, especially the torn #:, at to the build, tig armament and imputed c in tents of the vessel, seemed to me, on the whole, to justify and requite an examination of tno case, at the hazard of possible inconvenience to innooent parties. To mske such examination elfeotual, it wm necessary to bbel the "Manry," and place her in charge of the Mar shal 1 have now received from Mr. McKeon, report of the re sult of the investigation. it appears that the Maury was owned In part by Messrs. A. A. low & Brothers, who have afforded sa'ls Ihctory information as to her construction, character and destination. Tfaey make affidavit that she was built and equipped for trade with Chins, having, in addition to the oroiuary moment of vessels la that business, only two deck gum, deemed requisite on account of the increase of piracy lu the ?eas cf China. It further appears by these explanations, that the statements made as to tl e gun- and munitions of war and extra spars on hoard Uie Maury, were inaccurate, to use the mildest admissible expression; 'hat the surmise* u? to the illegality of ber eburoefor *M not subs tan tia'ed by proof; and that she Is lu fsot sdver l*ed for general affreightment, and receiving cargo destined for Sh in jhae Neither Mr. Barclay nor Mr. Edwa-da brought forward any evidence to contradict tlie-o la ;t.<; on the on'rary, Mr. towards has, in a letter addressed to Mr. McKnou, expi 11 fed his convlctioii of th" propriety of di 'missing the libel, which ill also recommended unreservedly by Mr. McKeon. Vnder these circuirsfarces, it affords me pleasure to enable yon to give a'turanre tha' t ho Canard mall srum ers may continue to enter and to loan our ports, without appiel enllon of lieing captured bv the Maury, an I con verted into Russian men-of-war for the prosecution of holstiitios In the Fast Indies.
