No. 263.-Rear-Admiral Reynolds to the Secretary to the Admiralty. (Received March 17.)
Southampton, Rio de Janeiro, January 13, 1851.
In my letter of the 4th instant, relative to the Cormorant having proceeded to Bahia, to demand that any slave-vessels in that port should be seized by the Brazilian authorities, I mentioned that the Cormorant's mission was a preliminary step to the consideration of the withdrawal of the suspension of my standing order for seizing slavers in the ports of Brazil. I have had a consultation with Mr. Hudson, and from the refusal of the Brazilian Government to come into Lord Palmerston's views, we mutually consider that it is advisable to withdraw at once the suspension alluded to; and I have consequently issued to-day the general memorandum to that effect, of which I have the honour to transmit a copy for their Lordships' information. I have, &c.
The Secretary to the Admiralty.
(Inclosure.)—Order issued by Rear-Admiral Reynolds.
Southampton, Rio de Janeiro, January 13, 1851. THE respective captains, commanders, and commanding officers of Her Majesty's ships and vessels under my command, are hereby
informed, that my Standing Order No. 16, dated 22nd June last, is to be again in force from this date; but in every instance communication must always be first made to the commanding officer of any fort, or to the chief Brazilian authority, inviting him to co-operate in an amicable spirit to seize vessels engaged in the Slave Trade, and to enforce the Brazilian laws against them. To the respective Captains, &c.
on the South-east Coast of America.
