The Xectkil Trade. There is sot a thoughtful
man In tbe country who would exult In tbe pros
pectof a great European conflict, even, if bejenew
that bis own fortune would be promoted by the con
test. Tbe fearful waste of life and treasure involv
ed In such a war, while they, will pot deter those
whose blood Is heated from roo!c to the assault,
must Induce every lover of bis kind sot involved ia
the qnxrrel to do all be can In the Interests of peace.
Bat there Is nothing In tb! sentiment to deter a
neutral fronr prufitin;; to Its fullest extent by all the
legitimate tnde wtiico tbe folly or madness of other
callous may throw la bis way, and we are glad that
this subject Is receiving at least a late recognition at
Washington. The renowned agreement known as
' tbe Paris Declaration," to which all of the lead
ing European powers bare formally assented, has
takeu tbe place, to a great extent, of tbe old defini
tions of International law, and bas given peculiar
advantages to all proper trade under a neutral fix;.
It established tbe new principle that' the goods of
an enemy are safe tram seizure under a neutral flag,
unless tbey are contraband of war, and that neutral
goods not thus contraband are cot liable to capture
even on board an enemy's ship.
In regard to what constitutes contnband of war,
ind therefore not included In this exemption 'from
seizure, tbe practice, since tbe declaration, has been
far more liberal tban formerly towards tbe bellige
rents. Under the old policy tbe tendency was tor-
wards restriction, and strong neutral nations able to
assert their rights would col permit the seizure of
property where the flag duly covered tbe owner, un
less cleaily liable as warlike material. Xow, It is
customary for tbe belligerents to declare by procla
mation tbe list of forbidden articles, w bleu Is allow
ed to Include many not formerly forbidden. Until
sccb official lists appear shipper from this country
will do well to be cautious about shipping anjtbing
of a doubtful character, or that can by stretch of
construction be classed as contraband. II is, easy tn
see that as France Is superior to Frn5la in caval
force, and as all privateering Is abolished, there will
be a great temptation to stretch the Xmperor's au
thority, and to render tbe exemption clause of little
effect by including everything possible under the
contraband exception. We foresee much trouble
from this source, and we therefore desire to caution
our readers in lime that tbey may not throw an y
tbe profits of a lirgr, Iegltlmatstrade byiriattempt
to supply any warlike materia! to either combatant.
With these remarks we append In full tbe text of
the argrecment cow binding on tbe belligerents:
Declaration respecting Maritime Law, signed by
the Pieuljolrotlaries of Great Britain, Austria,
France, Prussia, Russia, Sardinia and Turkey, as
sembled in Congress at Paris, April 16, ISM:
"The Plenipotentiaries wbo signed the Treaty of
Paris of the SOtb March, 1SS6, assembled In Confer
ence, considering
"That Maritime Law, In time of war? has long
been tbe subject of deplorable disputes :
"That tbe uncertainty of tbe law, and of the du
ties In such matters, give rise to difference of opin
ion between neutrals and belligerents wuicb may
occasion serious difficulties, and even conflicts; '
"That It is consequently advantageous to estab
lish a uniform doctrine on so Importsnt a point ;
"That tbe Plenipotentiaries assembled 'inCon
gress at Paris cannot better-respond to tbe intention
3j which tbcir Governments are animated than by
seeking to Introduce Into Intemitlonal relations fix
