My LORD,—With reference to my Despatches, No. 139 of the 29th ultimo, No. 111 of the 15th January last, and No. 20 of the 12th of the same month, I have the honor to transmit to Your Lordship copies of a further note from Mr. Seward, and its enclosure, relative to the restrictions imposed at New York on the Trade with the British Colonies.
I have also the honor to transmit to Your Lordship a copy of a Despatch which I have written to the Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick, who has been so good as to send me a copy of a Despatch on the subject of these restrictions which he addressed to the Duke of Newcastle on the 14th instant.
I add a copy of a Despatch with which I have sent Mr. Consul Archibald a copy of Mr. Seward’s note.
I have, &c. (Signed) LYONS.
