Culbertson v. The Steamer Southern Belle, 59 U.S. 18 How. 584 584 (1855)

Culbertson v. The Steamer Southern Belle

59 U.S. (18 How.) 584

Syllabus

Where a regulation was made in one of the harbors of the Mississippi River, assigning their positions to different species of boats, if the regulation was generally known, it was the duty of all persons to conform to it.

Where a flatboat was moored at the place designated for flatboats, and a steamboat, in attempting to land, came into collision with and sunk the flatboat, the steamboat must be liable for the damage done.

When a steamer is about to enter a harbor, great caution is required. Ordinary care under such circumstances will not excuse a steamer for a wrong done. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
