In 2 Black's Bepo;eis, page Gtio, may
ye iouna tne report ot tne "prize
cases' arguea ana decided in the su
preme court of the United States at
the December term of 1862. The
opinion of the court, delivered by Air.
Justice Grier of Pennsylvania, and
the dissenting opinion, delivered by
Mr. Justice Nelson of New York, both
reported at length, give the history
otine Beverai cases and the questions
raised and decided in each of them.
It "vrill be f ceu by reference to these
opinions that the great and vital
question, applicable to all the cases
was whether the United States had
the rights of a belligerent in the war
declared and prosecuted agamst them
by the southern states, then confed
erated in rebelb'on. Littlo did the
people of the loral states know, when
the court was in private consultation
on this question in the early part of
the year 1863, that our national exist
ence was depending upon the decision
of nine judges, and that it was saved
by tUbfvoteof one man. That page
in the history of the rebellion has
never been written, and I propose to
write it now.
The sunreme court of the TTniffvl
States at the December term of 1862,
ub composea oi nine judges as r u
lows: Chief Justice Kebert T. Tanev.
of Maryland; Justices James T.
Wayne, of Georgia; John Oatron, of
Tennessee; Samuel Nelson, of Now
York; Bobert C. Grier, of Pennsyl
vania: Nathan Clifford, of Maino-
Noah M. Swayne, of Ohio; Samuel
F. Miller, of Ohio; David Davis, of
President Lincoln, as the chief exe
cutive or the government - and commander-in-chief
of the army and
navy, bad declared and notified a
blockade of the seceded states in
the month of April, 186L Not long
uiterwaros, an J&ngiisu hart, a .Mexi
can schooner and two vessels owne'd
in Biohmond, Va., were severallv cap
tured by ships of the United States
government and brought into port as
prizes. They were libelled together
with their respective cargoes on be
half of their captors and of the United
oiures, ana in eacu case there was a
decree of condemnation in the dis
trict court. The claimants of the
vessels and cargoes appealed to the
supreme court, and thus the question
was raised impeaching the validity of
the blockade and the rights of the
government in the war then uendinrr
Every judge on the bench knew and
appreciated the momentous import
ance of those questions.
hey knew that a decision adverse
to the claims of the government
would almost certainly result in the
irretrievable ruin of the country. It
would be a -. declaration to all the
world by the supreme court of the'
cision from the country for nearly
nine months was finally 'defeated.
It only remained now to appoint a
member of the court to write and
deliver the opinion. The chief No
tice assigned Justice "Wayne to that
duty. He was an aged man, in verv
feeble health, and, whatever might
have been the motive that inspired
the appointment, it was npitl.r a
kind one nor a proper one, Justice
Grier came to his rescne. Ho rn-i
minded the chief justice that, as lie
was not in accord with the mninritv
of the court, it was not his nlnee f
say who should write the opinien:
that Justice Wayne was the senior
associate in the majority, and it was
for him to say who should perform
that duty. By his appointment, the
opinion was written and delivered In-
Judge Grier, vindicating the course
ot .rreaident Liincolu, and confirming
the claim of the government to the
rights of a belligerent without a for
mal declaration of war against the
states in rebellion.

was on the side of the rebellion, that
tlw war was only an insurrection
which was to be suppressed "by the
application of the necessary force
against the individuals concerned in
it, and not a.war in the legal or tech
nical sense, drawing after it the bel
ligerent lights recognized by the law
of nations, and that the declara
tion of the blockade of the southern
ports was an unauthorized and law
less acfof President Lincoln which
foreign governments were not bound
to respect. This was all the south
wanted. It was all that anvbodv
wanted from the supreme court, who
aesireu to see the union finally and
lorever uestroyea ana an independ
ent empire of slavery and cotton con
trolling the commerce and destinv of
wnat an English statesman was
pleased to designate during the war
as "the late United States."
When the nine judges met in se
cret consultation after the argument
of counsel, the fact was developed
that Chief Justice Taney, Justice
Catron, Justice Nelson and Justice
Clifford were prepared to decide the!
question against me government
They were ready with an opinion,
ea aa tue opinion oi the court,
without the knowledge of some
of their associates, that Presi
dent Lincoln bad no power to recog
nize the existence of the rebellion ns
a war within the meaning of the law
of nations; had no power to blockade
the southern ports, and that the cap
turesfor breach of blockade or as
enemies' property were consequently
illegal and void, and that the decrees
of condemnation should bo reversed
and the vessels and cargoes restored
to their owners. Justice "Wayne be
ing a southern man. thev ernwM

io meir opinion, jtmt ho w&3 a per
sonal ana intimate fnend of Jude
ciner, ot Pennsylvania, who was a
northern Democrat, loyal to the con
stitution and. his country. That in
timacy saved the nation. Judge
Wayne voted with his friend, and the
court stood five in favor of the gov
ernment, and four against it.
Defeated and vexed by this unex
pected result, the chief justice sought
to secure the final adjournment of
the court for the terra without an an
nouncement ot its decision. He per
suaded Justice Wayne to consent to

carry the scheme through. Put be

Wayno told his friend what he had
agreed to do. JuBtiee Grier imme
diately denounced the proposed sup

national cause whjeh would almost
