Syllabus

Under the Duty Act of 1799, c. 126, s. 43, it is no cause of forfeiture, that the casks, which are marked and accompanied with the certificates required by the act, contain distilled spirits which have not been imported into the United States, or a mixture of domestic with foreign spirits, the object of the act being the security of the revenue, without interfering with those mercantile devices which look only to individual profit without defrauding the government.
