No. 101.]

Sir: Your dispatch No. 178, of the 7th ultimo, concerning a declaration of war against the Liberian government by the Grebo tribe of Africans, has been received and read with interest. It is regretted by this Government that the mission of Commissioner Payne failed to secure an amicable adjustment of the question in dispute between the Grebo tribe and the Liberian government, and that hostilities were imminent.

I am, &c.

Acting Secretary.
