Nevertheless, if the deserter shall be found to have committed any other crime or offence on shore, his surrender may be delayed by the local authorities until the tribunal before which his case shall be pending shall have pronounced its sentence, and until such sentence shall have been carried into effect.

ARTICLE XXI.

It is agreed that every person who, being charged with or condemned for any of the crimes enumerated in the following article, committed within the States of one of the high contracting parties, shall seek asylum in the States, or on board the vessels of war of the other party, shall be arrested and consigned to justice on demand made, through the proper diplomatic channel, by the Government within whose territory the offence shall have been committed.

This surrender and delivery shall not, however, be obligatory on either of the high contracting parties until the other shall have presented a copy of the judicial declaration or sentence establishing the culpability of the fugitive, in case such sentence or declaration shall have been pronounced. But if such sentence or declaration shall not have been pronounced, then the surrender may be demanded, and shall be made, when the demanding Government shall have furnished such proof as would have been suficient to justify the apprehension, and commitment for trial, of the accused, if the offence had been committed in the country where he shall have taken refuge.

ARTICLE XXII.

Persons shall be delivered up, according to the provisions of this treaty, who shall be charged with any of the following crimes, to wit:

Murder, (including assassination, parricide, infanticide, and poisoning;) attempt to commit murder; rape; piracy; arson; the making and uttering of false money, forgery, including forgery of evidences of public debt, bank-bills, and bills of exchange; robbery with violence; intimidation or forcible entry of an inhabited house; embezzlement by public officers, including appropriation of public funds; when these crimes are subject, by the code of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies to the punishment della reclusione, or other severer punishment, and by the laws of the United States to infamous punishment.

ARTICLE XXIII.

On the part of each country, the surrender of fugitives from justice shall be made only by the authority of the Executive thereof. And all expenses whatever of detention and delivery, effected in virtue of the preceding articles, shall be at the cost of the party making the demand.

ARTICLE XXIV.

The citizens and subjects of each of the high contracting parties shall remain exempt from the stipulations of the preceding articles, so far as they relate to the surrender of fugitive criminals;

nor shall they apply to offences committed before the date of the present treaty, nor to offences of a political character, unless the political offender shall have also been guilty of some one of the crimes enumerated in Article XXII.

ARTICLE XXV.

The present treaty shall take effect from the day in which ratifications shall be exchangerl, and shall remain in force for the term of ten years, and further, until the end of twelve months after either of the high contracting parties shall have given notice to the other of its intention to terminate the same; each of the said contracting parties reserving to itself the right to give such notice at the end of said term of ten years, or at any subsequent time.

ARTICLE XXVI.

The present treaty shall be approved and ratified by the President of the United States of America, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate thereof, and by His Majesty the King of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies; and the ratifications shall be exchanged at Naples within twelve nionths from the date of its signature, or sooner if possible.

În faith whereof, the respective Plenipotentiaries have signed the foregoing articles in the English and Italian languages, and have hereunto affixed the seals of their arms.
