As rhildrea when we used to play
Upon the beach in muslin ti ocks.
And formed a tangled disarray
Of soaking shoes and tattered sock; ;
When nur-e was driven ts ccmplaiBj
And kind mamma SJ gently chid.
Begging von ne'er to err again.
You said you wouldc":-bu: you did.
When Bettv. whom you worked so hard,
And vet who loved you none the .ess,
Wa? prayed, so urgently, to guard
A secret from your governess;
You recollect her puzzled look,
Wishing to do as she wa*, bid,
And vcice of badly feigned rebuke,
Which vo.ved she wouldn't-but she did.
And when, one afternoon, from town

A new three volume batch came down
From Mr. Mudie's "library;
You promised that, howe'er a-sailed,
You would not even raise :he Ld,
But curiosity prevailed
Against obedience-and you did.
That carden party ! far the best
Of any that I've e'er enjoyed ;
We sat together, while the rest
'Bare chance !l were otherwise employed ;
Tho-.-.Kb your mamma had talked for hours.
And ventured firmly to forbid
A tete-a-tete among the flowers;
You said you wouldn't-jut you did.
The things that happened 'neath the shade
Of clematis that clustered fair,
The things we looked, and thought, and said,
And hoted, are neither here nor there.
I know not it the day was fine,
Or 'neath the clouds the sky was hid;
I know io one request of mine
You said you wouldn't-and you did.
ISTPOBTANT DECISION OE THE SUPREME COEBI
OF THE UNITED STATES.
Spbjoined is an important decision of the
United State3 Supreme Court (to which we
have already made brief editorial allusion),
in reference to the sale of confiscated prop?
SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.
2fo. 52-December Tenn, 1867.
The Union Insurance Company, Claimant
and Intervenor, Appellant, cs. "the United
States and Crafts J. Wright et ai-Appeal from
Circuit Court of the United States for the
Eastern District of Louisiana.
Mr. Chief Justice Chase delivered the opin?
ion of the court.
The first questions in this cause relate to
.Che suit below was by libel in the Circuit
Court of the United States" for the Eastern Dis?
trict of Louisiana. The libel described the
case as one of seizure and forfeiture, and alter
reciting the act of Congress of ?ugust 6.
1861,*which declared the property of all persons
who should knowingly use or employ it, or
consent to the use and employment of it in aid
of the rebellion, to be lawful subject of prize
and capture, proceeded to allege that certain
property had been so U6ed and employed, and
claimed a decree for :(-. condemnation and for?
feiture to the use of the United States and the
Upon the filing of this libel, notice was given,
monition was published, claims were inter?
posed, and testimony was taken in general
confoimity with the practice of Courts of Ad?
miralty, and & decree was made restoring part
and condemning part of the propertv.
It was urged in argument, that"the act of
Congress does Dot authorize the proceedings
instituted in the Circuit Court.
The answer to this proposition must be
determined by the construction of the act.
The first section provides th t propertv used
in aid of the rebellion, with conseut "of the
owner, shall be the "lawful subject of prize
and capture wherever found," and makes it the
duty of the President to cause it "to bo seized,
confiscated, and condemned."
Tho second section provides that such "prizes
and capture shall be condemned in the District
or Circuit Court of the United States having
jurisdiction of th;- amount, or in admiralty, in
any district in which the same may be seized,
or into which the same may be uken and pro?
The third section provides that "the Attor- <
ney-Gen<u-al, or any district attorney of the
United States, in which said property "may at
the time be, may institute the proceedings of t
condemnation, and in such cases they sholl bc ]
wholly for the benefit of the United states; or
any person may hie an information with such c
attorney, in which case the proceedings shall :
be for the use of such informer and the United
States in equal parts." <
It is sufficiently obvious that the general ob?
ject of this enactment was to promote the
suppression of rebellion by subjecting property
employed in aid of it with the owners consent
to confiscation. It extended to all descriptions
of property, real or personal, ou land cr on
water. All alike were made subjects of prize :
and capture, and, under chrection o? the Presi- :
dent, of seizure, confiscation and condemna?
The act must be construed with reference to
this general purpose. In ordinary use the
words "prizes and capture" refer, doubtless, to
captures on water as maritime prize; but in ?
this section they plainly refer to propertv
taken on land as well as ort water, and the du?
ties prescribed to the President include the
taking of this property by civil process as well
as by naval or military force, and sanctiou
proceedings for confiscation and condemnation
in civil course without regard to the mode of
The second and third sections prescribe the
action to be taken in the courts. This action
is described, generally, in the third section, as
"proceedings for condemnation.'7 to be insti?
tuted by the Attorney-Genera], or any district
attorney. And jurisdiction o? these "proceed?
ings" is given to the District or Circuit Court
having jurisdiction of the amount, or in adrai- "
ralty, in any district where the property is seiz?
ed or into which it may be taken.
This language is certainly not clear. But we
think that the construction which, as we under?
stand, has been generally adopted in the dis?
trict and circuit courts rn cases of proceedings
for the condemnation of : eal estate or property
on land, is substantially correct. That con?
struction treats the grant of jurisdiction in ad
rniralttf as a grant of jurisdiction of the "pro?
ceedings of condemnation" to the circuic or
district court, according to the amount in suit;
with power to both courts to shape those "pro?
ceedings" in general conformity to the prac?
tice in admiralty.
Such proceedings do not necessarily consti?
tute a cause in admiralty. When instituted for
condemnation of property on land, they have
relation exclusively to matters which, in their
nature, are not of admiralty cognizance. But
Congress may doubtless give jurisdiction of
6uch proceedings to the circuit as well as to th^
district courts, and may authorize the exercise
of this statutory jusis?iction in the form and
modes analogous to those used in admiralty. :
And this, we think, was the purpose of tie
The difficult; of construction arises from
the terms in which jurisdiction is granted "to ,
any district or circuit court having jurisdic- j
tion of the amount, or in admiralty, in any dis- i
txict where the property is found." It is said I
that the use of the disjunctive "or" restricts <
the jurisdiction in admiralty to the district ]
courts. And this view is certainly not without
BOOM warrant in the phraseology of the act.
But when we look beyond the mero words to (
the obvious intent we cannot help seeing that j
the word "or" must be taken conjunctive^; <
and that the sense of the law is that both the ?
circuit and the district courts shall have juris?
diction "according to the amount" and "ia ad- 1
Ihis construction impairs no rights of par?
ties. In cases of seizures on land the right of ,
trial by jury is not infringed. In such cases .
the proceedings must be in general conformity
to the course in admiralty; but iosues of fact, i
on the demand of either party. niu6t be tried 1
by jurv.f Where tue seizure is made on navi- i
gabie waters, the course of admiralty may be 1
That this construction carries int o effect the
true intention of Congress, sufficiently appears
on reference to the act of July 17, lSti2,i in which j
it is provided.expressly that proceedings for j
. confiscation shall conform cs nearly as may Le
to proceedings in admiralty or revenue cas. s. ,
We think, therefore, that the Circuit Court
had juri?di?rion of the cause. 1
It remains to be considered whether the de- 1
cree of the court can bo reviewed here on ap?
peal. No appeal is expressly provided by the 1
act of 1861. Ihe constitution, however, giveo
to this court appellate jurisdiction in all cases
of which the inferior courts of the United
States have original jurisdiction, subject to
6uch exceptions and regulations as Congress .
shall make; and the act of 1S08 ? provides : ,
genera?lv for appeals from decisions in ad- \ ,
miraltv." Some of the judges think it a reason- ? -
?ble construction of the ace that it was not , t
intended to except decrees under it irom the I 1

appellate jurisdiction of thia court; but that it
was intended to apply to them the general
reflations of admiralty proceedings in respect
to appellate as well as to original jurisdiction;
while a niajoritv of the court is of opinion that
appellate jurisdiction mav be taken of the
cause, because the proceedings below, though
in a case of common law jurisdiction were sub?
stantially according to the course in admiralty;
but only for the purpose of reversing; the de?
cree of the Circuit Court as irregular, aad
directing a new trfaLfl
We proceed then to the questions arising
upon the merits. The case may be briefly
A square of ground in Kew Orleans, with
tue buildings upon it," was leased on the 17th
ox September, 18C1, by one L?once Burthe to
William C. Cook pnd Fran?is L. Cook, who, in
October cr November, established on the prem?
ises a manufactory of arm6 for the rebe' gov?
ernment, and continued tbe business ?mil thc
occupation of the city by the national forces
in the spring of 1S62.
In October. 1SG1, the Union Insurance Com?
pany of New Orle:ns took a mortgage froni
Burthe upon three undivided twenty-fifths of
the property to secure the payment of a note
for thirty-five hundred dollars due from him
to the company.
Subsequently suit was instituted upon the
mortgage, and in due course a decree of sale
was rendered, under which the insurance com?
pany became purchasers of the mortgaged
premises for fourteen hundred dollars, and on
the 26th of February, 1864, received the sher?
iff's deed of the property.
In April, 1864, the company obtained a judg?
ment for twenty-seven hundred and thirty-five
dollars, being the balance due on the note of
Burthe, and was about to sell the residue of
the property, when further proceeding; was ar?
rested by a "military order.
It appears further, from the evidence, that
three minors of the Burthe family were legal
owners of four thirty-sixths ot tbeitproperty on
which the gun factory was established.
By the decree of the Circuit Court the
whole propertv was condemned as forfeited to
the United States, except the four thirty-sixths,
called in the decree four twenty-fifths, of the
An appeal was taken by the Union Insurance
Companv and another claimant who has aban?
doned the prosecution ot his appeal. No ap?
peal was taken by the United States from that
part of th i decree which exempted tue inter?
ests of the minors from condemnation.
There is no reasonable doubt that the Cooks
established their manufactory of arms on the
ground leased by him to them with the full
knowledge and consent of Le ince Burthe. It
thus became within the express terms of the
act the lawful subject of prize and capture
from the time of that establishment.
The evidence in respect to the rights of the
insurance company is not sc clear. To the ex?
tent of the interest created by the mortgage,
the company may. doubtless, be properly re?
garded as owner. But there is no direct proof J
of consent to the unlawful use; and. indee:!,
no proof at all. except the fact of taking the
mortgage, and it does not appear that the
Cooks had taken possession under their lease
before the execution of the mortgage.
We do not think this evidence of consent
sufficient to support a forfeiture.
The counsel for the company very properly
abandone1 any claim under the judgment re?
covered for the balance due on the mortgage
nota. The forfeiture was incurred when the
Cooks went into actual use of the premises
under tho lease, and the subsequent seizure
for condemnation divested all intermediate
The decree of the Circuit Court must be re?
versed as irregular, and the cause remanded
for new trial in conformity with this opinion.
The property seized having been real estate,
the proceedings on the new trial must be con?
formed in respect to trial by jury, and the ex?
ceptions to evidence to the*course of proceed?
ing by information on the commonflaw side of
the court ir cases of seizure upon land.""

GENTLEUE:; : In reply to your inquiry relative to the merits of WHANN'S?rjPER-PHOS
PHATE, which, at your recommendation, I empoyed this season upon my Cotton lands, I
would state that it Las fully equalled, and indeed surpassed my expectations, and its applica
ion has been ittended by the most favorable results. I have used it in connection with the
most popular Phosphates, "and unhesitatingly give the preference to WHANN'S, which I
regard as bein?: (next to Peruvian Guano) the most valuable Fertilizer for Cotton that has been
offered to the public. Very resp ?c. tinily, ALLEN C. IZARD.
