BANKRUPT. Under the act to establish an uniform system of

Bankruptcy in the United States, all deeds which are
made with a view to give a preference to a creditor

are void, and acts of Bankruptcy.

202
A denial to the sheriff is not an act of Bankruptcy, if

the debt upon which the writ was founded be not

The adjudication of the Commissioners, that the party

is a bankrupt, may be supported by other acts, than
that upon which the commission is founded, provided
they were committed within six months before it was

CONDEMNATION. See Blockade.

If a vessel be seized for a violation of a municipal law,

the manner of instituting proceedings against her
must be regulated by the sovereign power of that
country whose laws she has infringed: and no foreign
court can inquire into the correctness of a condem-
nation passed in consequence of the seizure, unless
the court, by which the adjudication has been made,
lose its jurisdiction by some circumstance which the
law of nations can notice.

159
The court of the captor does not lose its jurisdiction in

consequence of the vessel being carried into a neu-
tral port, because she is there in such a place of
safety, that a sentence can be passed according to the
law of nations.

ib.
Where the facts stated in a foreign sentence do not,

in themselves, amount to a justifiable cause of con-

demnation, the cause is open to further evidence. ik.

Devise. Where the words of a will would give an estate tail in

a freehold, the same words applied to a personal estate
will pass the whole interest; and as, by a devise of
rents and profits, lands will pass, so a devise of the

vise of the stock itself.

. Nor will the landing under such circumstance, without
a permit, work a forfeiture.

the particular place where they are first landed. ib.

in any court having concurrent jurisdiction.
