This article is dated February 14, 1861 and is a very interesting read, indeed. http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?_r=1&res=9E03E3DE133FEE34BC4C52DFB466838A679FDE&oref=slogin

Thanks for the link. This raises the issue of legality of the seizures. Granted that South Carolina had seceded already in January and that the seized goods were destined there, but the war didn't start until April. Sorry if I'm ignorant on the fine points but I'm a bit lost on the legal issue.
