The Irresistible

20 U.S. (7 Wheat.) 551


An offense against a temporary statute cannot be punished after the expiration of the act unless a particular provision be made by law for that purpose.

The proviso in the repealing clause of the Neutrality Act of 20 of April, 1818, did not authorize a forfeiture under the act of 3 March, 1817 (which was included in the repeal), after the time when that act would have expired by its own limitation.
