Whenever, at any port of entry, the duties on imports cannot, in

the judgment of the President, be collected in the ordinary way, or

by the course provided in section 218 (!1) of this title, by reason

of the cause mentioned in said section, he may direct that the

shall reside at such place, or on shipboard, as the case may be,

and there detain all vessels and cargoes arriving within or

vessels and their cargoes are paid in cash. But if the owner or

consignee of the cargo on board any vessel thus detained, or the

master of the vessel, desires to enter a port of entry in any other

district where no such obstructions to the execution of the laws

exist, the master may be permitted so to change the destination of

the vessel and cargo in his manifest; whereupon the collector shall

deliver him a written permit to proceed to the port so designated.

And the Secretary of the Treasury, with the approval of the

Sec. 226. Protection of liens on condemned vessels

-STATUTE-

In all cases wherein any vessel, or other property, is condemned

in any proceeding by virtue of any laws relating to insurrection or

rebellion, the court rendering judgment of condemnation shall,

notwithstanding such condemnation, and before awarding such vessel,

or other property, or the proceeds thereof, to the United States,

or to any informer, first provide for the payment, out of the

proceeds of such vessel, or other property, of any bona fide claims

which shall be filed by any loyal citizen of the United States, or

of any foreign state or power at peace and amity with the United

States, intervening in such proceeding, and which shall be duly

established by evidence, as a valid claim against such vessel, or

other property, under the laws of the United States or of any State

thereof not declared to be in insurrection. No such claim shall be

allowed in any case where the claimant has knowingly participated

in the illegal use of such ship, vessel, or other property. This

section shall extend to such claims only as might have been

enforced specifically against such vessel, or other property, in

any State not declared to be in insurrection, wherein such claim

arose.
