Syllabus

If, upon the breaking oat of a war with this country, our citizens have a right to withdraw their property from the enemy's country, it must be done within a reasonable time. Eleven months after the declaration of war is too late.

Appeal from the sentence of the Circuit Court for the District of New Hampshire condemning the ship St. Lawrence and cargo. All the claims in this case, except those of McGregor and Penniman for certain parts of the cargo, where settled at the last term, and with regard to these further proof was ordered.

No further proof having been produced, the case was submitted to the Court without argument.
