United States Supreme Court

74 U.S. 454

Confiscation Cases

THE question in this case arose upon a motion of Mr. Evarts, Attorney-General, in fifteen appeals from the Eastern District of Louisiana, in which judgments had been given on libels for condemnation and forfeiture-as having been employed in aid of the rebellion, with the consent of the owners-against the Trent and five other vessels, from which judgments the owners of the vessels appealed; and given in favor of the Eleanor and eight other vessels, from which the United States appealed.

Mr. Justice CLIFFORD stated the case more particularly, prior to delivering, as hereinafter, the opinion of the court.
