A CHARGE delivered to the Grand Jury k
, for the District of South Carolina in the a;
Circuit Cotirt of the United States, g
1 held for the said dijrriff at Columbia, t]
' on t e lith of May 1794, by James t<
1 iRKDELi one of the AJjociate Jujl ces of b
the Supreme Court of ihe UnitedSttites. tl
(Fublilhed at the Grand jury's rcquefi.) v
Gentlemen of the Grand Jury, a
5 The war which unfortunately has been tl
> for feme time raging in Europe, placed this tl
j. country irf a new and critical situation c
which requiredthe utmcftattention ofthofe e
concerned in the Government, and the ex- d
j errife of important duties by the citiiens ot b
„ the United Sfat;s. Wish all the povers c
engaged in thi war we were at pe?ce ; wi:h : e
' moit of them we had treaties either of ait!
, mere friendly or of a commercial nature :j t
. with one we had connexions more intimate t r
tha<i with either of the others, and parti- c
s. cularly ind ared by the recollcftion of the c
:1 signal benefits we had derivedfrom its exert
e tions in the time of our diflrefs. Ihe dan- e
ger that we fr.ight, in the cctirfe of so ex- 1
d ter.five an host lity, be drawh again into a t
state of war frcm which we hadfo recent- 1
ly and after experiencing so many evils em- i
ergi-d, was alarming to every ccnfiderate
tniiid: but we had the cOnfolaticn to re- 1
fleifl, that no authority of our own but that 1
j. of the Legislature of the United States 1
Could deliberately bring such a calamity t
upon us ; and we were well afiured, from c
1- their patriotil'm and integrity, that nothing "
but the r eccflity of felf-defence, or the du- 1
ty of a ptiblic obligation (if that unhap- i
' pilvlhoold be found to require it) would 1
induce them to risque the growing prof- 1
perity, and altr.oll unexampled free Con- <
dition of our country. 1
A?the Confiitution of;Jte United States <
' entFufted the Ccngrejs atone with the au- t i
thority of declaring war, or permitting any i
inferior species of holiility, it was evident 5 1
, r that until they exercised such an authority, j t
it was tlie d6ty of all the citizens' of the j i
United States to remairt in a state of peace t
and neutrality with all the hoittle powers. 1
, It is a principle of common sense, as wc-ll t
as a v*ry. clear one of the Law of Nations, i
d and is for the fneft part expressly flipula- 1
ted in tlvofe treaties where the preferva- i
tiorr of peaee is that it Jhall 1
be maintained as well by the individuals of i
■>f each nation as by the rel'peflive govern- 1
ments. A diflindVioil between the two ca- 1
fes, in any infiance, would be trifling to '■
'' the utmost pcffible degree, and in the in- 1
fiance iri' would involve such 1
surd conferences as to make the futility
- of it obvious to the least discerning mind. !
None can deny that if one ctizeri could
take a pan in the war, alt might, S<'.p- '
pose such an event : we lhould then pre
sent the ridiculous and contemptible lpec
tacleto the world, of the .officers of our
government in their official tranlaftions,
bound to the obfervar.ee cf a ftrifl neutra
lity, and the people the. ifelves by whose
authority and un whose behalf, tliev a(sl, 1 .
( ] individually engaged oh one fide or the o-
titer. Themifcliiefs of such adiftin£lion(if
we can for a moment lose fight of itsabfurd
ity) would be j.-rnieious beyond all ejtima-
C c tjon. The great excellence of every go
vernment nruft be, A-hen those who have '
rp the direction of public affairs, and those :
nf for whose benefit they are !
of perate in one uniform conduct. #ut -what '

Whatever Cifpute may arise as t c

a th-refore to every ail of governm-i,

i- onal poiiit of view, of all the peop!.

i- exefeifed for their benefit, and in no it

a the leaftexclnftve benefit oftheperfons wit
t- whom such particular delegation of po\v<
i- is entrusted.
te If any addition was vfanting ti reafoi
e- which seem so complete and fatisfaftory,
at might add t,hat it is in the nature of thing
es unavoidable that all the citizens of a corn
ty try mnft be perlbnally affected by the goc
m or bad government of it. Thro'their g.
ig vernment alone can they speak or be fpi
a- ken to by foreign nations, which in itfe '
p- implies the notion of an united and infep
Id rable inter eft. If war be declared by th
•f- 'branch of the government entrusted to d
ii- cure it, 411 the citizens must be immediat
ly liable to all the consequence? of that d
es claration, however calamitous or howevn
u- I fortunate they may prove. Governme
iy ! ships and government property of any oth
nt kind will not alone be the objects of hr
y, tility, but the property of any kind belon
ie ing tt> any citizen coming within reach
ce j the enemy. The laws of war impose c 1
•s. ; ties, to which the citizens will be irnqui,
:-ll tioaably liable ; they in a few inflanc
is, give individual rights, tho'thefe are us
a- ally ino'xlfiderable, comparedtothe other
a- so certain are the mifchiefs, focompaii
ill tively light are the advantages derived fro
of so unhappy a'condition. In peace we .
n- know the fclejfings individuals are etititl
a- to —liie, 1 berty, and property (ecured fro i
to any hoflile invasion. If a country is th .
n- happily circumstanced, when a war brea
b- out between ether powers, arid its fituati ...
ty wii! admit of a neutrality tr'weeri ther.
d. "few duties are eflential to this conditic
!d which' mult be faithfully performed or t
p. rights of such neutrality will not nor on*, .t

c- 'he security incident to profound peace,
ur far as the persons and property of :h« ii.
is, tral nations are concerned, upon the pr
a- cipte of observing perfect neutrality as
,fc the objtfts of the war between the belli
