How still and peaceful is the grave, There, life’s vain tumults past, The appointed house, by heaven’s decree, Receives us all at last. The v icked there from troubling cease, Their passions rage no more : And there the weary pilgrim rests From all the toils he bore. All levelled by the hand of death, Lie sleep’ng in the tomb, Till God in judgment call them forth, To meet their final doom. BENEDICTION. From the Charleston Mercury, The Laws of War. The near prospect of hostilities between the Abolition Government and the Government of the Confederate States, renders some inquiry! into the law of nations, on this subject, ap propriate and interesting. What are the legal consequences, and what the practical bearing, of a state of war upon the individual rights of citizens of the two Confederacies having deal ings with each other, are questions which should be clearly understood. As a contribu tion from a standaid authority to the general stock of knowledge on the subject, we quote, somewhat at length, some extracts from Kent’s Com mentaries. We quote, first, from Lecture 3d, on the Law of Nations, vol. 1 : INTERDICTION OF COMMERCIAL INTERCOURSE. “One of the immediate and important con sequences of the declaration of war, is the ab solute interruption and interdiction of all corn* mercial intercourse, ami dealing be'ween the subjects of the two countries. The idea that any commercial intercourse or pacific dealing can lawfullv subsist between the people of the jiowers at war, except under the clear and ex press sanction of the Government, and without a special license, is utteily inconsistent with the new class of duties growing out of a state of war. The interdiction flows, neces-arily, from the principle aheady stated, that a state ot war puts all the members of the two re spec’ivcly, in hostility to each other; and to suffer individuals to carry on friendiy or com mercial intercourse, while the two governments were at war, would be iflacing the act of gov ernment and the acts of individuals in contra diction to each other. It would counteract the operations of war, and throw obstacles in the way of the public effort, and lead to disorder, imbecility and treason. Trading supposes the existence of civil contracts and relations, and a refere co to courts of justice ; and it is, there j fore, necessarily contradictory to a state of war. It affords aid to the enemy in an effectual man- 1 ncr, by enabling the merchants of the enemy’s i country to support their G -vernment, ad it facilitates the means of conveying intelligence ' and carrying on a traitorous correspondence with the enemy. These considerations apply with peculiar force to maritime States, where, the principal object is to destroy the marine ’ and commorce of the ecemv, in order to force them to peace. It is a well settled doctrine in the English courts, and with the English ju rists, that there cannot exist, at the same time, a war for arms and a peace for commerce.— The war puts an end at once to all dealing and all communication with each other, and places every individual of the lespective governments, as well as the governments thbrnselves, in a state of hostility. This is equally the doctrine of all the authoritative writers on the law of nations, and of the maritime ordinances of all the great powers of Europe. It is equally the received law of this country, and was so deci ded frequently by the Congress of the United States during the Revolutionary war,and again by the Supreme Court of the United States, during the course of the last war; and it is difficult to conceive of a point of doctrinemore deeply or extensively rooted in the general maiitime law of Europe, and of the universal and immemorial usage of the whole communi ty of the civilized world. “ It follows, as a necessary consequence of the doctrine of the illegality of all intercourse or traffic, without express permission, that all contracts with the enemy, made dining war, are utterly void. The insurance of enemy’s property is an illegal contract, because it is a species of trade and intercourse with the ene my. The drawing of a bill of exchange, by an alien enemy, un a subject of the adverse | country, is an iliegal .and void contract, be cause it is a communication and contract. The purchase of bills on the enemy’s country, or the remission and deposit of funds there, is a dangerous and illegal act, because it may bo cherishing the resources and relieving the wants of the enemy. , , , The remission of funds, in money or bills, to subjects of the enemy, is unlawful. The inhibition reaches to every communication, direct or circuitous. AH endeavors to trade ivith the enemy, by the intervention of third partnerships, have equally failed, and no arti fice has succeeded to legalize the trade, with out the express permission us the Government. Every relaxation of the rule tends to corrupt the allegiance of the subject, and prevents the war from fulfilling it? end. The exception to this strict and rigorous rule of international jurisprudence, is the case of ransom bills, and they are contracts of neoessity, founded on a state of war, and engendered by its violence. It is also a further consequence of the inabil ity of the subjects of the two States to commune or cany on any cpriespondence or business together, that all commercial partnerships ex isting between the subjects of the two parties prior to the war are dissolved by the mere force and act of the war itself; though other contracts existing prior to the war are not ex tinguished, but the remedy is only suspended, and this from the inability of an alien enemy to sue, or to sustain, in the language of the civilians, a persona standi in judicio. 'The whole of this doctrine respecting the illegality of any commercial intercourse between the in habitants of two nations at war was entensive ly reviewed, and the principal authorities, an cient and modern, foreign and domestic, were accurately examined, and the positions which have been laid down established in the case of Griswold us. Waddington, decided in the Su [•reine Court of this State, and afterwa.ds affir med on error.” The Event of the Struggle- I'lie Revolutionary spirit which is abroad in the land will soon make the slaveholding States a phalanx which neither the tricks of domes tic traitors, nor the force of Abolition enemies can destroy. This is just as certain as that day succeeds nfght, ar.d then will Nemesis show that she has delayed, but not forgotten to punish the Subrnissionists. We shall then have a united, homogeneous Confederacy of fourteen millions fighting for their firesides, their wives, their children, and their sacred honor, against abated foe. When the shock of conflict comes, the terrors and fears which the Subrnissionists have conjured up with so much artistic skill to Lighten us from the path of honor, will disappear like shadows before the sun. The pages of history are filled with the suc cesses of small and homogeneous nations in their conflicts with nations vastly their superiors in numbers. They have nearly always conquered. The twenty nations who formed the vast army of Xerxes were defeated by a few slave holding confederated States at. Marathon, at Salamis and Thermypoke. Frederick, of Prus sia fought all Europe for seven years, and emer ged from the smoke and din of that long con test a conqueror.
