and wreck brought or coming into
the Colony, and all droits of Ad-
miralty sold in the Colony shall at
all times be subject to the same
duties as goods of the like kind

chargeable thereon, but no allow-
ance shall be made for damage on
any goods or articles used for, or

In cases of
dispute as to
the rate of
duty on any
goods, course
to be adopted.

money on dis-
pute, how to
be dealt with.


6C. If any dispute shall arise as
to the proper rate of duty payable
in respect of any goods admissible
for consumption within the
Colony, the importer, or consignee,
or his agent shall deposit in the
hands of the Collector of Customs
or other proper officer of Customs,
at the port of importation, the
duty demanded by such Collector
or other officer ; which shall be
deemed and taken to be the pro-
per duty payable, unless an action
or suit shall be commenced in a
Court by the importer, within
three months after making such
deposit, against the Collector of
Customs to ascertain whether any
and what duty is payable upon
such goods; and on the payment
of such deposit, and on the pass-
ing of a proper entry for such goods
by the importer, consignee, or
agent, the Collector of Customs
shall cause delivery thereof to be

paid by the Collector of Customs
in such manner as the Governor
may direct and in case no such
action or suit shall be brought

same manner as if the same had
been originally paid and received
as the duty due and payable on
such goods ; and in case of such
action, if it shall be determined
that the duty so deposited was
not the proper duty, but that a
less or no duty was payable, the

difference between the deposit
and the duty found to be due, or
the whole deposit, as the case
may require, shall be returned to
such importer and shall be accep-
ted by such importer in satisfac-
tion of all claims in respect of the
importation of such goods and the
duty payable thereon, and of all
or any damages and expenses in-
cident thereto, except costs of
suit as next hereinafter provided ;
that is to say, provided always
that the party to such action or
suit in whose favour a verdict
shall be given shall be entitled to
his taxed costs of suit; and if
such verdict shall be given against
the plaintiff in such action or suit
the costs so taxed as aforesaid
shall be recoverable and recovered
against the Plaintiff in the same
manner as damages and costs in
an ordinary action or suit in such
Court are recoverable by Law, but
if such verdict shall be given
against the Collector of Customs,
as defendant in such suit, the
costs so taxed as aforesaid shall
be paid by the Treasurer, on the
warrant of the Governor for such
purposes.
