No. 1.- The Marquess of Londonderry to The Earl of Clancarty. (Circular.)

Foreign Office, February 22, 1822. It appears by a reference to the Treaty for preventing illegal Traffick in Slaves, signed between this Court and the Court of ..

that no provision is made for supplying, tempo.' rarily, the Vacancies occurring in the Mixed Commissions from any other cause than death. As it has already happened at Sierra Leone, and as it may probably happen elsewhere, that a Commissioner, from illness, is unable to perform his functions, I am commanded by His Majesty to direct that you will suggest to the Government of His

.. Majesty, the expediency of extending to the cases,-of absence of the Commissioners from illness, or from the permission, regularly notified, of their respective Governments—those provisions of the Treaty which apply to the temporary Vacancy occasioned by the death of one or more of the Commissioners.

By the provisions of the Treaty, the disadvantage, if any should arise, will always fall on the side of the Contracting Party who neglects or delays to supply the vacancy; and, while a sufficient

guard is thus placed against the abuse of this extension of the stipulations in case of vacancy, the arrangement of it will, possibly, prevent much serious inconvenience, occasioned by an omission in the Treaty which could not have been intended.

If the Government of .... ... shall view this matter in the same light in which it is here placed, you are authorised to sign a Declaration to the effect proposed, and you will give me notice of the same, that the necessary Instructions may be given to His Majesty's Commissioners, respectively.

I am, &c. His Majesty's Ambassador at The Hague, &c. LONPONDERRY.

No. 2.—The Earl of Clancarty to The Marquess of Londonderry.

(Rec. March 14.) My LORD,

The Hague, March 5, 1822. I have had the honour of receiving Your Lordship’s Despatch of the 22d of February.

By this I am directed, in consequence of an alleged omission in the Treaty signed with this Court on the 4th May, 1818, to suggest to them the expediency of rectifying the same by a Subsidiary Declaration, which I am thereby authorized to sign to the effect proposed.

Your Lordship will perceive from the inclosed Copy of a Note, Officially addressed by me to His Excellency the Baron de Nagell on the 2d instant, that I have lost no time in obeying your Instructions in this respect.

I have the honour to be, &c. The Marquess of Londonderry, K. G.

CLANCARTY.

(Inclosure.)The Earl of Clancarty to The Baron de Nagell.

The Hague, March 2, 1822. The Undersigned, &c., has received instructions to call the attention of this Court to the following statement :

By reference to the Treaty for preventing Traffick in Slaves, signed between the Two Crowns on the 4th May, 1818, it appears that no provision is specifically made for supplying, temporarily, such Vacancies as might occur in the Mixed Commissions from any other cause than that of death.

It is obvious, as has indeed already happened at Sierra Leone, that a Commissioner may, from illness, become unable to perform his functions, by which much, and possibly serious, inconvenience might be occasioned.

By the Ninth Article of the Regulations for the Mixed Courts annexed to and incorporated with the Treaty, “The Two High Con. “ tracting Parties have agreed, that in the event of the death or legal impeachment of one or more of the Judges or Arbitrators composing “ the above-mentioned Mixed Courts, their Posts shall be supplied, ad interim, in the following manner,” &c.:
