The Diana, 16 U.S. 3 Wheat. 58 58 (1818)
16 U.S. (3 Wheat.) 58
APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT
COURT OF SOUTH CAROLINA
Decree in an instance cause affirmed with damages at the rate of six percentum per annum on the amount of the appraised value of the cargo, the same having been delivered to the claimant on bail, including interest from the date of the decree of condemnation in the district court.
This was an information under the nonimportation laws against the ship Diana and cargo. Condemnation was pronounced in the district and circuit courts, and the cause was brought by appeal to this Court. At the last term, on the hearing, it was ordered to further proof, and the further proof not being satisfactory, the decree of the court below was affirmed at the present term.
