Sch'oncr* Fanner, from Philadelphia, for
Havannah, was lately ier.t into Halifax.
The veflel was owned by an American, the
by a Frenchman, who resided at Phi
ladelphia. The attorney-general ui,«red the
condemnation of tf e becaufe a French
man could not alienate his country ; and
'plead fcr the condemnation of the veflel be
cause the captain was an Er-fflifhman, apd
although iiiitur ilized, married, and long a
refidetu in Philadelphia ; still he could not
divert himfclf of liis allegiance, nor claim for
» citizen of America. The JucUe said, that
the "cargo belonged to a Frenchman (altho'
living in tM United States) and going di
reclly to an rne—y's port, ouift be condemn
ed. As to the veflel, said the Judge, (lie i(
confefledly neutral, and therefore,
is the claimant, must be restored ; and the
captors must pay the owners full freight.

The' tliim w.n hy the (pptair*. Acting that
tie with his bro'.her, who "was his mate, were
bwners of the bng, that they had chartered
said vefltl to a Mr. H?£loi Scott of New-
York ; that they were to take a cargo and
carry to Curracoa. and return with another,
and that t! ey had nearly completed the cen
tral when taken, (being just off the Hook.)
It appeared that Heftor Scott w*s a natural
born fubjeft of Great Britain ; but it did
not appear how hng he had resided in the
United States. The right of citizenlhip
■was in this refpeft as in the last cafe, argu
ed with great warmth by Mr. Uaiack, at
temey general, and Mr. Stewart, attorniy
for the claimants the attorney-general held
up the ides that He£tor Scott was a Britifli
fwl-jeft and could' not, by any a£l of his,
throw off his natural allegiance; that he
■w is in a neutral country, under cover, sup
plying the enemies of his country, and th;t
he ought to be treated as a " ihaitoe,"
iiid his property confifcated. Mr. Stewart
argued that Mr. Scott was an Amsrican,
and as such had come into this court (by his
attorney) and that neither Mr. UHiack, nor
the Judge of this court of vice admiralty of
Nova-Si otia had any concern in the right of
establishing the mode of citiienfhip ; that it
was a national mutter, concerning national
cbara&ers, and that it nuift be d.cided
by the two nations. The Judge tlio't
pmpsr to give 30 days re lpite for farther
proof, as it respected the claim of Mr. Srott
hat said as to the veM'el, there appeared to
him fufficient evidence -that the property was
a&ually the claimant"!, who were natural
born citiiens of the United States, and
therefore decreed the captors do restore the
velTel, and pay the captain the full of his
freight, or chartei ; but the cargo is to re
main till the expiration of 30 clays for judg
ment thereon."
