rty of a public enemy, being owned by citizens of Richmond; and the principal question that arises is, whether the citizens of Virginia, which State is now in rebellion, can be considered as public enemies. This will probably be argued at length at some future day. The claimants all say that they are loyal citizens of the United States. A question of fact may, however, arise as to the ownership of 4,700 bags of coffee, in which a British house may prove to have an interest. No claim has been presented by this house as yet; but should they present a solid claim, the coffee will be given up as not belonging to public enemies. Four hundred bags of coffee belong to a Richmond house, and will be disposed of the same way as the vessel. The master of the brig, a resident of Maryland, owned fourteen bags of coffee in the vessel. This morning Mr. Bangs moved that this be restored to him. As he is a citizen of a loyal State no objection was interposed, and the Court granted the motion.
