Neutral powers.

By the treaty of Paris between Great Britain, France, Austria, Russia, Prussia, Turkey, and Sardinia, April 16, 1856, privateering was abolished; neutrals might carry an enemy's goods not contraband of war; neutral goods not contraband were free even under an enemy's flag; and blockades to be binding must be effective. The United States acceded to these provisions in 1861. See international law.
