Excerpt from Opinion as to the Construction of the Non-Intercourse Acts and Captured Property Acts Relatively to the Prize Acts

Sir: The following observations on the construction and legal effect of the act of July 13, 1861, ch. 3, entitled "An act further to provide for the collection of duties on imports, and for other purposes," and especially sections 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 of that act, and on the act of May 20, 1862, ch. 81, supplementary to the foregoing, are respectfully submitted, not as argument on this or that side of any question, but in the sense prescribed to me by your instructions, to wit, as impartial opinion, to aid, so far as such opinion may contribute to this end, in the practical solution of the doubts arising in the administrative construction of those acts.

Permit me prefatorily to say that the Government of the United States, meaning thereby the Legislative as well as the Executive Powers, would seem, at the time of these enactments, not fully to have determined for itself how far its relation to the people and territory of the United States, wherein opposition to the laws was either flagrant or impending, should continue to be conducted within the limits of municipal sovereignty, and how far that relation was to fall into the domain of the jus belli.

The President's proclamation of April 18,1861, did but call out militia, to withstand insurrectionary combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, in the States of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.

The proclamation of May 3, 1861, calls out a volunteer force for the same objects, and with the same inducements.
