.... .,. ,t _titv V elaTsprately argued at the close of the last term and the commencement of the present by Dr. Phillimore and Dr. Lushington, on behalf of his excellency count Ludolf, the Sicilian ambassador, and Dr. Jenner, on the part of the representatives of sir Robert Hall, deceased (late a post captain in the British navy, and a brigadier-general in the Sicilian service). The king's advocate and' Dry, Arnold, appeared for Chelsea hospital; against which institut&n^the j^Qurf .was prayed to enforce monition. .,'.».• ••••!!

Lofd'Stowell gave judgment to day. The question, which the Court was called on to decide, arose from the capture of Genoa, and its two dependencies, Spezzia and Savona, then in the possession of the French, .* government. The capture of these places was effected by the combined armies and fleets of the king of Great Britain and the king of Sicily; and a very considerable booty, or prize, was distributed among the captors under the grants of the respective sovereigns. The immediate question arising out of these transactions, related to the particular share of sir Robert Hall, a person described as a milit|ry officer, in the service of the king of the Two Sicilies, and who was likewise !a

naval omi-ef,j» post captain, in the service of the. king,of Great Britain. This party, who had :been I serving as a British naval officer, was transferred to the militfer^ser|vice of tEe o£h"er'state/, jife-jponjfederate state, then united with Great Britain in a struggle ag_ainst ; the common oppressor of Etir'opi&.! • It did not appear how this transfer was effected. The court did not think it resulted from any of the papers which had been laid before it, that sir Robert Hall, previously to these captures, had had any connection with the Sicilian army, or with Sicily itself. It was probable that this was the first tinte tfeisrt h'e! had been connected with the Sicilian service by the joint opinion? of 1 the British military commander-in- chief in that expedition (lieutesnant-general lord William' Benj tinck), ^n'<J pie" British ^dnjiral i (now lord, vis$)vint Exjjjpu$}j)/^ It seemed to hav« been, also 'the'-ilast time that he served in his military capacity; so that Ms'^coflf'te'sion ; with the Sicilian service migh^ bej considered to have been accidental and temporary only. At the same time, the Court was bound to consider it a sufficiently authenticated fact, that sir Robert had been validly transferred to the Sicilian army 5 for he was certified by the British commissioners for the distribution of the Sicilian prizemoney as "a lieutenant-general in .the .Sicilian serrice," The claim now made on his prize-share? was; preferred by the Sicilian i

resident at this court. No question, therefore, could be raised as to the validity of his appointment, for however long or short a period it might have lasted. A great deal of obscurity had been introduced into this question by various events, and particularly by reason of the death of sir Robert Hall. The capture of the booty was made in the early part of the year 1814; yet the first time, on which the present question had been introduced to the notice of the court, was on the last court-day of the very last term only; at the close of 1825, or very nearly 12 years after the matter happened. In that interval, many things had occurred that did certainly embarrass the question very much. Sir Robert Hall, who, if he had been living, would have been able to come into court himself and assert his own claim, was dead, and so were a great many other persons who could have thrown much light upon this cause.—It was to be observed, that a very scanty provision had been made by law relative to booty or prize captured by the combined operations of a British force, together with foreign forces. There seemed to have occurred scarcely any instance in the earlier ages of our history, wherein any permanent regulations, at least in respect of such cases, had been made. It was very true, that Great Britain had very often had to maintain contests single-handed. But this was by no means the case with the last struggle for the independence of Europe, which was sustained by the European states generally, against the common oppressor. In that contest, Great Britain had the concurrence of most of such states, in one shape

or other, and at various times. But it was late in the course of the last war, before any regulations concerning the distribution of prize to the forces employed in such conjoint operations was made by parliamentary authority. Three acts of that nature were passed in the reign of his late majesty; and one containing, certainly, very peremptory enactments, in the reign of the present king, and apparently with reference to this very expedition which took Genoa and its dependencies; and an order in council had also been made, which directed that the prize share, or that share in the distribution of the booty captured by the combined forces on this occasion, that might be adjudged to Sicily, should be paid over to the minister Plenipotentiary from the court of the two Sicilies, residing at this court. Out of this general injunction no reservations were made. The money so distributed was to be remitted to Sicily for the purpose of its being paid over to those who might be entitled thereto, according to the laws and constitutions of that country, and "the directions of the sovereign thereof."

Now it was upon this state of facts, that the present question came before the court. Sir Robert Hall's character as a Sicilian officer was sufficiently established; and being so, there could be no question but that his must be considered as a "Sicilian" share. This share was paid somewhat early and prematurely, but by no means imprudently, by way of safe custody, into the treasury of Chelsea Hospital; though at what time it was so paid, did not appear on the face of these proceedings. This payment was in itself somewhat irregular. Chel* .
