Jenn-bsigades were encamped. Being arri
ved ttiere, I saW the enemy in great num
bers. encamped on the-plantation Dufrete,
and in the plains of Acquin. I formed the
j right coltimu-into three divisions ; ;he right
commanded by the chief of brigade Laurent
Defir>; the centre by the chief of brigade
Paul Louverture, and the left ky the chief
( of brigade Dornage. These three divisions
1 began their march for the plantation. The
firft division had fc rcely arrived at its desti
nation, (the two others beirg still on their
march,) when the enemy feeing this manoeu
vre, made a sally from the plantation and
took to flight. The divivifion commanded
by Dom"age, fell in with and engaged them,
but the affair was rot serious until their
arrval at Acquin. 1, Thtre the enemy then
rallied and gave battle : The '4th and Bih
demi-brigades whicTi were in advance, fuf
taiiied (he fire of the en: my foi- two. hours;
when, tflje other two divisions having
come' up with the enemy, he was beat

sea (hore, whe e a number of tl em who at.
' tempted to embark, were destroyed jn the
! water or among the reeds. I returned and
ordered th: column under general Laplume,
which had not been engaged, lo march ahead
on the great road to Cayes, in order
to purfut: the enemy to a certain distance ;
but &c the ioftaut I arrived at that town,
' another column of the enemy, which had
sallied out from I'Anfea-Veau, attempted to
take us by surprise, and F had scarcely time

the community, ftumkl be kept out of their

Talbot §hii lam. 1 Error from the Cir

The Ship Amelia, Isfc. J N. Y. Diftrift.
The (hip Amelia, belonging to Meflrg.
I Chapeaurouge, Merchants and Burghtrg of
I Hamburg, navigated by Hamburg teamen,
on her homeward bound parfage from Cal
cutta in Bengal, laden with a valuable car
j go, the produce or manutaftures of that
: place, was captured by a French corvette
i and dispatched for the (lat)d of St. Domin
igo ; after remaining ten days in p ffeflion
; ofthe'captoTS, (he was fallen in with, by the
United Sates frigate Conlitution, captain
Talbot, who retook and fen' her into New- .
York, where, upon her arrival, (he was li
belled by captain Tal ot on behalf of him
felf and the crew of the Co ftitution for
salvage in the Diftr'ict £our r . The (hip
and cargo were condemned a d fold at the
Marthal's falc by a decree of that court,
which under the 7th fe£k on of t' e law of
| Congress, pafled March' 2 1799 entitled
an Adt for the Government of the Navy
los the United States," thought fit to ad
judge by way of salvage to the ro captori
one half of the whole valße of the laid (hip
and cargo, without .ny deduAion what
Fr m this decree an appeal was entered,
to the Circuit Court for the Diftridl of N.
York ; and at :tlie last ftffiin of that court
in April term, his. honor Judge Washing
ton, after hearing counsel in the cafe, re
versed the decree of the Diftrifl J'idge, up
on the ground, as stated in the judgment
rendered ; that na service had been rendered
by the re-c«pt®rs of the (hip Artielia to the
! owners in taking h?r out of the hands of
the French and fending her into the United
' States j because Hamburg, where the (hip
and her owi eV» belonged, was a neutral
power, not at war with the Fiench Repub
lic ahd in amity with the United States.—
To presume therefore, that the (hip and
cargo would have been condemned in the
I Admiralty Courts of the French Republic,
] would be highly improper, because such a
proceeding would be a violation of the law
of nations, however confiftest it might be
with her own laws.
The libellants being difiatisfied with this
decision, removed the cause by writ of er
ror to the Supreme Court, f here it was ar
gued with great ability and very copiously,
by Ingerfoll and Lewis for th,e Plaintiffs—
Dallas and M. Levy for Defendants.
It was contended for the Plaintiffs in
Error, that the (hip Amelia, although ow: .
v ed by fubje€ls of a neutral power, bsing
• bound from a port in Bengal, in the pof
fcflion of the E-glifh, and laden with the
manufaftures. and produce thereof, was a
proper fubjeft of capture and condemnation
under the decree of the French Republic
of the 4th of Jaouaiy, 1798-which.adjud
