[Obsolete.) Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Secretary of the

(a) See notes of the acts which have been passed relating to Virginia military land warrants, vol. 1, 464, vol. 3, 612.
(6) Certain streets wore laid out by the town of Charlestown, Massachusetts; and the proceedings relative to the same were afterwards confirmed by an act of the Legislature. The streets passed over the land of John Harris; and he afterwards received a compensation from the town for taking the land occupied by the streets. In 1800, the United States, under the authority of an act of the Legislature of Massachusetts, purchased of Mr. Harris several parcels of land, now occupied as a navy yard. And in 1801, by an arrangement between the town of Charlestown and the United States, ihe streets, so far as they were within the limits of the navy yard, were closed up, and have ever since been discontinued, and have been used as a part of the navy yard. The agent of the United States and Mr. Harris, not agreeing as to the value of the land taken for the navy yard, the value was ascertained and determined by a jury proceeding under a law authorizing the same, and the amount of the valuation paid to Mr. Harris by the United States. The jury did not appraise the land on which the streets were laid out. One lot of ground was appraised “ with the appurtenances.” This action was instituted by the heirs of Mr. Harris claiming to be paid the value of the land on which the streets had been laid out, but which had been discontinued. The defendant was the commandant of the navy yard.
By the Court. The term "appurtenances," in common parlance, and in legal acceptation, is used to signify something
appertaining to another thing as principal, and which passes as incident to the principal Vol. V.-42
