2511. Your 1852, July 15.1 Sir Edward Grey has reminded me that no court has yet passed on the validity of the order in council of March 11, and he intimated that, the prize court in the case of the Neches would probably have to pass on this question. The foregoing was an incidental part of a general conversation on the validity of the order in council. He promises an early reply to your 1852.
