Ibr ( nvtwm and Rnleit rVar
era. Xkw York, July 28. A Berlin let
ter on the international cougrtw, which
lcgan it ne-ion at 1'rus.scl--yesterday,
rays the Prussian project which it pro
xses todiscu.!! is an international con
vention concerning the laws and cu--toms
of war: and after laying down
ccrtiin general print ijdes as to what
war is, a ftnigic between t vo nations
and their armies, and not letvcen the
subjects, contain eighty-one section? de
voted to a detailed statement of what
should or should not be permitted in
war. With regard to military author
ity on the territory of the hostile
State, the doctrine is deci.-ivcly laid
down, and will probably provoke
great opposition, that the occupation
of a portion of the territory of a Ftai
completely suspends the legal author
ity of that State, and substitutes that
of the enemy, so that if any of the
population are subsequently found in
at ms they will not be treated as pris
oners of war. At the same time the
army of occupation has no right to
seize churches, establishments of char
ity, and institutions ; and the seizure
of monuments, works of arts or muse
ums, is severely reprehended. Among
the means, of war which are forbidden
are the use of poison, treachery, mur
der, murder of prisoner? nud refusal
to give quarter, threats cf extermina
tion to war J a garrison that oh.-tinate-
ly dt fends a fortress, the employment
of arms causing useless suffering, such
as projectiles filled with jHiwdered
glass, or balls of less than lour hun -
dred grammes in weight; none but
fortified cities can lie best igetl ; an
open city which is not defended by
Ijojw can neither be besciged nor
lombarded and no city can be bom
barded without notice, nor can it be
pillaged after its capture ; iersons
captured m balloons are not spie;
who accompany an
arm v, although
non-combatants, can lo made prison
ers of war, and are not criminals but
legal enemies, and must, therefore, be
expoxjd to no violence or ill-treatment;
they can be condemned to a
city, fortress or locality, but cannot
be imprisoned like criminals; a pris-
; oner of war may be killed while try-
