Enclosure 6 in No. 45. Acting Consul Hollocombe to Mr. Christie. Rio de Janeiro, June 30, 1862. Sir, I have the honour to lay before your Excellency the following report of my visit to the Police Office in this city on the 18th instant, the day following the arrest of three officers belonging to Her Majesty's ship " Forte." On hearing that the Chaplain of the " Forte " was imprisoned, I immediately proceeded to the police station, and there saw that officer, together with two others, confined in the " xadrez " or common lock-up. The Chief of Police not being then in the office, I called on the Secretary, who informed me that the prisoners referred to had been apprehended for shooting without a license ; and that as soon as the Chief of Police returned he would acquaint him of my visit, when he had no doubt they would be set at liberty. The Secretary, immediately I informed him that the prisoners were officers in Her Majesty's navy, ordered them to be removed to another place of confinement, and this I saw effected before I left the station. The charge brought against these officers, as given to me by the Secretary, appeared so frivolous that I fully expected they would be at once released, and therefore did not call again to see the Chief of Police ; but later in the day, on sending to the station, I ascertained that the three officers had been removed to the Quartel dos Permanentes. On the 20th instant I addressed a note to the Chief of Police, asking, forthe information of Captain Sanmarez, the reason why these officers had been apprehended, and the nature of the charge made against them ; and I have now the honour to enclose a translation of the reply to my note. I have, &c. (Signed) THOS. HOLLOCOMBE.
Enclosure 7 in No. 45. Senhor da Gama to Acting Consul Hollocombe. (Translation). Police Office, Rio de Janeiro, June 21, 1862. Sir, I have to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch dated yesterday, and in reply I have to state that the three officers belonging to the frigate " Forte," alluded to therein, were taken prisoners on the 17th instant by the ensign commanding the detachment at Tijuca for having attacked the sentry of that detachment and for attempting to force an entry into the respective guard-house. God preserve, &c. (Signed) AGOSTINHO LUIZ DA GAMA.
Enclosure 11 in No. 72. Mr. Christie to Acting Consul Hollocombe. Rio de Janeiro, January 1, 1863. SIR, I have to instruct you to cause it to be made generally known that if any vessel seized by Admiral Warren's orders shall contain property belonging to parties who are not Brazilians, the Admiral will, on the nationality of the owners being proved to his satisfaction, give every facility in his power for the delivery of the property to the owners without any delay which can be avoided. I am, &c., (Signed) W. D. CHRISTIE.
Enclosure 29 in No. 72. Mr Christie to Acting-Consul Hollocombe. Rio de Janeiro, January 7, 1863. SIR, When the arrangement which I reported to you yesterday was concluded, I was assured that the correspondence would be published this morning in the official journal and in the other newspapers. This publication has not been made, and a false explanation of the delay has appeared in the " Diario Official." The Marquis of Abrantes has hastened to assure me through his Secretary that he was as much astonished as myself at seeing that the correspondence was not published, that he had given orders for the publication, and that the publication will be made tomorrow with a contradiction of the statement which appears to-day in the " Diario Official." Some journals have turned the delay of publication to account by articles containing information which could only have been supplied by a member of the Government, and full of distortions and misstatements. It is naturally to be supposed that no person of less position than a member of the Cabinet could have ventured to suspend the order of the Minister for Foreign Affairs, and that the same Minister who has acted thus has inspired the journals to which I refer. I can quite understand that the person who has acted thus would see advantage in a day's delay in order to anticipate by misstatements the impression which the correspondence may produce. I wish you to make the despatch immediately known as widely as possible. Tomorrow's publication will show that I have made no unworthy concession, and that I have agreed on the 5th of January to terms such as it is known to many that I have been ready to accept since the 31st of December. If the arrangement which has at last been made, and which restores the commerce of this port to freedom, satisfies the true honour and dignity of Brazil, this can only be an additional source of satisfaction to me, for it is not less my desire than my duty to endeavour to combine respect for the true dignity of Brazil with the vindication of British rights and British honour. I am, &c., (Signed) W. D. CHRISTIE.
