7040. PROPERTY, Jurisdiction over.—

The functions of the Executive are not competent
to the decision of questions of property
between individuals. They are ascribed
to the Judiciary alone, and when either persons
or property are taken into their custody,
there is no power in this country that
can take them out.—
To Edmond Charles Genet. Washington ed. iii, 586. Ford ed., vi, 312.
