Mr. McCormick to Mr. Hay.


(Mr. McCormick reports that he has communicated the contents of Department’s telegram of the 11th instant to the minister for foreign affairs, and has protested against the condemnation of the cargo of flour carried by the Arabia; that the minister stated that he would have to consult with the minister of marine and with a commission which is considering the matter. States that the minister for foreign affairs stated in one of his notes that if this decision should be found unsatisfactory the case could be appealed to the council of the admiralty, which would have final jurisdiction.)
