The Legation of Sweden and Norway to the Department of State.


The legation has just received from the foreign office at Stockholm a telegram announcing that after the consent given by the Swedish Diet the King has yesterday, the 26th, recognized Norway as entirely separated from Sweden and has renounced the crown of Norway for himself and his house.

The legation has been ordered to inform the Government of the United States of the above said statement and to add that a circular note to the powers, which is now on its way by mail, will in a more formal manner bring the subject to the knowledge of the United States Government.
