The petitioner was an able-bodied man, between the ages of eighteen and forty-five, but denied that he was a resident of the Confederacy. It was contended by the petitioner's counsel that he was like thousands of other Marylanders, an exile, whose right of asylum in this country should not be disturbed by the enrolling officers. The counsel for the Government contended that he was a resident, having voluntarily cast his lot in the Confederate States, and insisted that he should be required to perform all the military duties imposed upon other residents.

The charge in both cases was clearly made out, and they were sent on for further examination before Judge Halyburton. In the instance of Mr. Harwood it was proven that he was ignorant of the law prohibiting dealing in greenbacks; that he was very reluctant to take that kind of money at all, and that he only did so because he needed it to send to a relative who was a prisoner at the North.
