SeƱor Romero to Mr. Seward.

Mr. Secretary: I have this day had the honor to receive your communication of yesterday, containing copies of the correspondence between your department, the Attorney General of the United States, and the Secretary of War, relative to the violation of the United States neutrality laws, which was contemplated by persons in the vicinity of New Orleans against the Mexican republic.

In reply I have the honor to inform you that I send the note and annexed documents to-day to the government of Mexico. I avail myself of the occasion to renew to you, Mr. Secretary, the assurances of my distinguished consideration.

M. ROMERO.

Hon. William H. Seward, &c., &c., &c.
