Arrival of Captain
ber 21, 1864.
TENERIFFE, October 30, 1864. (Received November 12.) MY LORD: I have the honor to inform your lordship that the British steam-vessel Laurel (47,819) of the port of Glasgow, bound from Liverpool to Nassau, arrived here on the 21st instant, for the purpose of coaling.
The master, J. F. Ramsey, on presenting himself at this office, stated that he wished to land forty-three passengers, who were to proceed to England by the next Liverpool steamer, and respectine prostrada that these persons were the master and crew of the British recrived from consui steamer Sea King, (official number 48,547,) of London, which vessel had been wrecked off the Desertas. The Laurel continued her voyage on the 22d instant. The master, on getting up steam, and not before, landed the above-mentioned seamen.
The master of the Sea King, P. S. Corbett, did not call at this office, as is usual in such cases, either for the purpose of making a protest or to claim assistance. Therefore, on the 25th Corlete there in laninstant, I sent to desire his attendance, and demanded the from sea King, Octom certiticate of registry of his vessel, in pursuance of instructions contained in No. 13 paragraph of the board of trade instructions. On handing in this certificate he informed me that his vessel had not been wrecked, but that she had been sold in London and delivered to her owners on the high seas, and that himself and his crew had landed here for the purpose of returning to England as passengers in the west coast of Africa mail.steamer, due at this port on the 31st instant.
The discrepancy between the statements of the two masters led me to seek for further information respecting this matter, and the substance of the declaration I have obtained from George Kelly, Edward Everall, John Ellison, (royal naval volunteers 18,130,) and John Hircus, all seamen belonging to the crew of the steam-vessel Sea King, is as follows:
- The Laurel sailed from Liverpool bound to Nassau, with 24 supposed officers and 17 seamen, besides her own crew, 45 to 60 shells, about five tons of gunpowder, and various other munitions of war; she proceeded to Madeira, where she took about 300 tons of coals. The Sea King sailed from London on the 7th instant, and also proceeded to the offing of Funchal Roads. Both vessels then steamed to a place off the Desertas, where the sea was smooth, and the officers and men, arms, and munitions of war were transshipped from the Laurel to the Sea King on the 20th instant. The cases of arms were at once opened, and the seamen armed themselves with cutlasses and revolvers. One of the officers then took command of the vessel in the name of the government of the so-called Confederate States of America. Some of the crew of the Laurel joined the Sea King. The remainder of her intended crew are to be sent out from England."
