Ex Parte Graham
77 U.S. (10 Wall.) 541
Proceedings to confiscate real estate under the Act of July 17th, 1862, entitled "An act to suppress insurrection, to punish treason and rebellion, to seize and confiscate the property of rebels," &c., are not "proceedings in admiralty," although the act declares that they "shall be in rem, and conform as near as may be to proceedings in admiralty or in revenue cases."
Accordingly, no writ of prohibition from this Court to a district court lies in the case of such proceedings, the writ being confined by the Judiciary Act to cases where the district courts are proceeding as courts of admiralty.
