5058. MARITIME LAW, Violation of.—

A statement of the conduct of Great Britain
towards this country, so far as respects the
violations of the Maritime Law of nations
[must be laid before Congress]. Here it would
be necessary to state each distinct principle
violated, and to quote the cases of violation,
and to conclude with a view of her vice-admiralty
courts, their venality and rascality, in
order to show that however for conveniences
(and not of right) the court of the captor is
admitted to exercise the jurisdiction, yet that
in so palpable an abuse of that trust, some
remedy must be applied.—
To Caesar A. Rodney. Washington ed. v, 200. Ford ed., ix, 144.
(W. Oct. 1807)
