U.S. Supreme Court

The Pearl, 72 U.S. 5 Wall. 574 574 (1866)

The Pearl

72 U.S. (5 Wall.) 574


A British vessel captured during the rebellion and our blockade of the Southern coast by an American war steamer, on her way from England to Nassau, N.P., condemned as intending to run the blockade, Nassau being a port which, though neutral within the definition furnished by international law, was constantly and notoriously used as a port of call and transshipment by persons engaged in systematic violation of the blockade and in the conveyance of contraband of war, the vessel and cargo being consigned to a house there well known, from previous suits, to the court as so engaged, the second officer of the vessel and several of the seamen, examined in preparatorio, testifying strongly that the purpose of the vessel was to break the blockade, and the owner, who was heard, on leave given to him to take further proof, touching the use he intended to make of the steamer after arrival in Nassau, and in what trade or business he intended she should be engaged in, and for what purpose she was going to that port, saying and showing nothing at all on those points.

Appeal from the District Court of the United States for the Southern District of Florida restoring, on payment by the claimants of expenses and costs, the steamer Pearl, captured for intent to break the blockade of our Southern coast, established during the late rebellion, the question being chiefly of fact. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
