Page 86 - In pursuance of this policy, the laws of the United States do not forbid their, citizens to sell to either of the belligerent Powers articles contraband of war, or to take munitions of war or soldiers on board their private ships for transportation; and although, in so doing, the individual citizen exposes his property or person to some of the hazards of war, his acts do not involve any breach of national neutrality, nor of themselves implicate the Government.
Page 711 - Kein Staat soll sich in die Verfassung und Regierung eines andern Staates gewalttätig einmischen." 6. „Es soll sich kein Staat im Kriege mit einem andern solche Feindseligkeiten erlauben, welche das wechselseitige Zutrauen im künftigen Frieden unmöglich machen müssen: als da sind, Anstellung der Meuchelmörder, Giftmischer, Brechung der Kapitulation, Anstiftung des Verrats in dem bekriegten Staat etc.
Page 85 - Our citizens have been always free to make, vend, and export arms. It is the constant occupation and livelihood of some of them. To suppress their callings, the only means perhaps of their subsistence, because a war exists in foreign and distant countries, in which we have no concern, would scarcely be expected.

Page 86 - If it be true, therefore, that citizens of the United States have been engaged in a commerce by which Texas, an enemy of Mexico, has been supplied with arms and munitions of war, the Government of the United States, nevertheless, was not bound to prevent it, and could not have prevented it without a manifest departure from the principles of neutrality, and is in no way answerable for the consequences.
Page 714 - Einen (der also nicht mit einstimmt), mithin alle, die doch nicht alle sind, beschließen; welches ein Widerspruch des allgemeinen Willens mit sich selbst und mit der Freiheit ist. Alle Regierungsform nämlich, die nicht repräsentativ ist, ist eigentlich eine Unform, weil der Gesetzgeber in einer und derselben Person zugleich Vollstrecker seines Willens (so wenig wie das Allgemeine des Obersatzes in einem Vernunftschlusse zugleich die Subsumtion des besondern unter jenem im Untersatze) sein kann...
Page 87 - Neutrals, in their own country, may sell to belligerents whatever belligerents choose to buy. The principal exceptions to this rule are, that neutrals must not sell to one belligerent what they refuse to sell to the other...
