ON CONFISCATION: Delivered in the House of Congress on the 28th
of January, 1864.

Thejolutresolutlon (H,R.STo. 18) to amend
a Joint resolution explanatory of un act ito

this House, as I have no-doubt they will
reci'lye from the people, a most careful and
prurient consideration. ..
We.live, Mr. Speaker, In an eventful perf-
wu ui iiio jiisiory 01 tins imiion. JCverf
thinffieems to be Ofi9ettled and thrown un.
on a sea of uncertainty. Plain provisions
of the Constitution, which have heretofore
been regarded as settled beyond contro
versy; are now called In question, and new
ana unneara-oi constructions placed upon
them." The provision contained in the
third section of article three of the Consti-
tution, which provides that "the Congress
shall have power to declare the punishment
ui treason, duc no attainder or treason shall
..... Hi. , .. .!.... I. 1 1 J . ..
Hum tuiiupuun oi uiuuu, or ioneicure ex

is now gravely argued in this House- by
iu juts aim uiBiuiguisneu statesmen
to mean that Congress may, in declaring the
uuuimiiueiii, ui trensun, iroviue ior tne ior-
feiture of the estate not for lite only but in
fee. Sir, before the year 1802 there did iiot
exist in tins country any cllllrence of opin
iuii uijuu una clause oi rnn t nnst. irnr nn
No one dreamed that the Constitution had
vested in Congress any power of declaring
.unciiuio ucyuuu uie mu oi tne person
convicted of treason; but that by express
provision the forfeiture was to be limited
to tne ine ot the traitor. That such was the
construction of the framerS of the Consti
tution is evidenced by the writings of James
Madison, justly entitled to be called the
father of the Constitution, find hv tha Wla.

already cited in this debate, show how
clear that distinguished jurist was on this
Sir, I was about to say that I was aston
ished that there should exist in this House
any riiflerence of opinion upon a clau e of
tne constitution which Has for more than
seventy years been regarded beyond con
troversy; but the sad occurrences which
have unfortunately taken place in this coun
try within the last three years admonish me
that I Should not be astonished at nnvthW.
seems to me, Mr. Speaker, that the hon
orable, gentleman from Pennsylvania'! Mr.
Stevens has exhibited more boldness and
frankness in this discussion than any gen
tleman on that side of the House". He does
not seek by- any subterfuge to avoid the
force of this provision of the Constitution,
plain in itself, but marches boldly out,
leader bf his side of the House, and
takes the distinct ground, that the Union is
already dissolved, and. that thia auentinn .1
one outside of the Constitution. He says
The United Hljitxn u .1 a.tv ..ui
edged bellmorent, with a foreign nation, and as such
has abrogated all former compacts existing be
tween them, neither the United States, nor the Coo-
jpueniH) ouwes eantas against Mh other, claim
aid of the Constitution or the lawa passed nn-
it. ; ... . , -, :: ) .',.,.;
inat the btates In reheiiion are no lono-er
portion of the United States, but are out
side 01 the Union, and are to be conquered
andjheld as subiueated territories: and ar
gues that this Government, on hecoming
conqueror, Is, by the laws of nations,
clothed with the right, and should exeroise
to confiscate and appropriate the proper
ty of the people of the, States thus to be
conquered. , Well, we have here a distinct
recognition of the Confederat States,' and
concession of what Jeff. Davis and the
leaders of the rebellion claim. They insist
wiaiiney are "outside 01 tne Union," and
that the "former compact existing between
tnem . ana tne united states lias been abro
gated, and the honorable gentleman from
Pennsylvania admits it.
The questions discussed bv the trentleman
from Pennsylvania Mr. Stevensf are of so
important a cnaracter,' and embraae a jange

S?"i f.ue. ?T gentleman, quotes
irom vatiei, rnuiimore, and Kent, to show
a war between two nations annuls and
submit that the authorities cited are not In
point. . These States were not held by the
of treaties, but by a Constitution
adopted and assented to bv each of them.
Dy tneir people tnrongn their conven
tions. 1 muy admit that when a civil war
breaks out between the different members
the same society the contending parties
each entitled to all the rights and usages
war as against each other, This is a rule
necessity, and is established by the plain
est dictates of humanity and Christian civil
ization. Writing on this subject, Mr. Whea
ton says in his excellent work page 520i
A civil war between the different members of the
society la what Grotius oalls a m-'xed war; it is,
aoeording to him, publio on the side of the establish
ed Government, and private ? the nart of the Deo-

tendine parties to all the rights of war as against

But I claim that there is nothing in this
sound and necessary principle oT public
which implies in a case like ours that
these States are outside of the Union and
constitute a foreign nation.. It is not against
States as such that the war is to be pros
ecuted, but against the people in the' States
are in armed resistance to the author
of. the United States. :- i
A rebellion exists within a portion of the
States, carried on by a portion of the people
those States. - They have for the time be
ing prevented the execution of the Federal
within certain boundaries, but their
ordinances of secesstonhlbelng. invalid and
uncnsutuuanal, vBoJ?oxce which they may

cessful revolution, and constitute them be
fore the world a distinct nation.-,'- i'
believe, Mr. Sneaker, this unfortunate
result of breaking up the Union may be
averted by wise and prudent statesmanship;
elr, I do not believe - the polioy advr
cated by the gentleman from Pennsylvania
Mr. Stevens that wbloh is presented by
President can do so." Slril am for the
uiiiuii vi uicee oiatce, not as BuojUKatea

as our fathers intended them to be. j '

been denounced on this floor. The Const!-
I tution as it is and the Union as it was are
assailed not only by traitors In arms, buby
gentlemen In this House. They want an
amended Union, an amended Constitution.
. Sir, If the policy of this Administration
and its friends shall prevail, we never shall
nave tne union as it was nor the Constitu
tion as it Is. Sir, was it for some other
union, some other Constitution, that a mil
lion and a half of brave and gallant men

two or tnree thousand million m in in.
enrred? Sir, Is all this sacrifice of blood
and treasure to result in the dissolution of
uie oia union and the permanent change of
the old Constitution?.' I trust not . , , i
Mr. Speaker, we stand before the world
ro-aay n great military power. The devel
opment of the strength and vast resources
ui tins country during the war, both upon
the sea and unon the land, have njitnniani
the world, and are perhaps unparalleled In
history: and who doubts if this combined
strength had been used for the simple and
single purpose of vindicating the rightful

there is a limit beyond which this war, and
beyond which no; war can be continued,
without utter and comDlete bankruntr-vonrl

by the gentleman from Pennsylvania Mr.
Stevens of the conduct of Enirlnnrl with

to real estateBy BVeonqnestof an enemy's

Allow me again to read from Wheaton,

We have seen that a firm possesion, or the sen

the captor's title to personal property or movables
taken in war. A different rule is applied to real
