9. ADDITIONAL TEXT
I spent the following day roaming through the valley. I stood beside
the sources of the Arveiron, which take their rise in a glacier, that
with slow pace is advancing down from the summit of the hills to
barricade the valley. The abrupt sides of vast mountains were before
me; the icy wall of the glacier overhung me; a few shattered pines were
scattered around; and the solemn silence of this glorious
presence-chamber of imperial nature was broken only by the brawling
waves or the fall of some vast fragment, the thunder sound of the
avalanche or the cracking, reverberated along the mountains, of the
accumulated ice, which, through the silent working of immutable laws,
was ever and anon rent and torn, as if it had been but a plaything in
their hands. These sublime and magnificent scenes afforded me the
greatest consolation that I was capable of receiving. They elevated me
from all littleness of feeling, and although they did not remove my
grief, they subdued and tranquillized it. In some degree, also, they
diverted my mind from the thoughts over which it had brooded for the
last month. I retired to rest at night; my slumbers, as it were,
waited on and ministered to by the assemblance of grand shapes which I
had contemplated during the day. They congregated round me; the
unstained snowy mountain-top, the glittering pinnacle, the pine woods,
and ragged bare ravine, the eagle, soaring amidst the clouds--they all
gathered round me and bade me be at peace.
Where had they fled when the next morning I awoke? All of
soul-inspiriting fled with sleep, and dark melancholy clouded every
thought. The rain was pouring in torrents, and thick mists hid the
summits of the mountains, so that I even saw not the faces of those
mighty friends. Still I would penetrate their misty veil and seek them
in their cloudy retreats. What were rain and storm to me? My mule was
brought to the door, and I resolved to ascend to the summit of
Montanvert. I remembered the effect that the view of the tremendous
and ever-moving glacier had produced upon my mind when I first saw it.
It had then filled me with a sublime ecstasy that gave wings to the
soul and allowed it to soar from the obscure world to light and joy.
The sight of the awful and majestic in nature had indeed always the
effect of solemnizing my mind and causing me to forget the passing
cares of life. I determined to go without a guide, for I was well
acquainted with the path, and the presence of another would destroy the
solitary grandeur of the scene.
The ascent is precipitous, but the path is cut into continual and short
windings, which enable you to surmount the perpendicularity of the
mountain. It is a scene terrifically desolate. In a thousand spots
the traces of the winter avalanche may be perceived, where trees lie
broken and strewed on the ground, some entirely destroyed, others bent,
leaning upon the jutting rocks of the mountain or transversely upon
other trees. The path, as you ascend higher, is intersected by ravines
of snow, down which stones continually roll from above; one of them is
particularly dangerous, as the slightest sound, such as even speaking
in a loud voice, produces a concussion of air sufficient to draw
destruction upon the head of the speaker. The pines are not tall or
luxuriant, but they are sombre and add an air of severity to the scene.
I looked on the valley beneath; vast mists were rising from the rivers
which ran through it and curling in thick wreaths around the opposite
mountains, whose summits were hid in the uniform clouds, while rain
poured from the dark sky and added to the melancholy impression I
received from the objects around me. Alas! Why does man boast of
sensibilities superior to those apparent in the brute; it only renders
them more necessary beings. If our impulses were confined to hunger,
thirst, and desire, we might be nearly free; but now we are moved by
every wind that blows and a chance word or scene that that word may
convey to us.
10. ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS
The following provisions have no importance or meaning of any kind.
Geneva Convention on the High Seas
The States Parties to this Convention,
DESIRING to codify the rules of international law relating to the high
RECOGNIZING that the United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea,
held at Geneva from 24 February to 27 April 1958, adopted the following
provisions as generally declaratory of established principles of
Have agreed as follows:
The term "high seas" means all parts of the sea that are not included in
the territorial sea or in the internal waters of a State.
The high seas being open to all nations, no State may validly purport to
subject any part of them to its sovereignty. Freedom of the high seas is
exercised under the conditions laid down by these articles and by the
other rules of international law. It comprises, inter alia, both for
coastal and non-coastal States:
(1) Freedom of navigation;
(2) Freedom of fishing;
(3) Freedom to lay submarine cables and pipelines;
(4) Freedom to fly over the high seas.
These freedoms, and others which are recognized by the general
principles of international law, shall be exercised by all States with
reasonable regard to the interests of other States in their exercise of
the freedom of the high seas.
1. In order to enjoy the freedom of the seas on equal terms with coastal
States, States having no sea-coast should have free access to the sea.
To this end States situated between the sea and a State having no
sea-coast shall by common agreement with the latter, and in conformity
with existing international conventions, accord:
(a) To the State having no sea-coast, on a basis of reciprocity, free
transit through their territory; and
(b) To ships flying the flag of that State treatment equal to that
accorded to their own ships, or to the ships of any other States, as
regards access to seaports and the use of such ports.
2. States situated between the sea and a State having no sea-coast shall
settle, by mutual agreement with the latter, and taking into account the
rights of the coastal State or State of transit and the special
conditions of the State having no sea-coast, all matters relating to
freedom of transit and equal treatment in ports, in case such States are
not already parties to existing international conventions.
Every State, whether coastal or not, has the right to sail ships under
its flag on the high seas.
1. Each State shall fix the conditions for the grant of its nationality
to ships, for the registration of ships in its territory, and for the
right to fly its flag. Ships have the nationality of the State whose
flag they are entitled to fly. There must exist a genuine link between
the State and the ship; in particular, the State must effectively
exercise its jurisdiction and control in administrative, technical and
social matters over ships flying its flag.
2. Each State shall issue to ships to which it has granted the right to
fly its flag documents to that effect.
1. Ships shall sail under the flag of one State only and, save in
exceptional cases expressly provided for in international treaties or in
these articles, shall be subject to its exclusive jurisdiction on the
high seas. A ship may not change its flag during a voyage or while in a
port of call, save in the case of a real transfer of ownership or change
2. A ship which sails under the flags of two or more States, using them
according to convenience, may not claim any of the nationalities in
question with respect to any other State, and may be assimilated to a
ship without nationality.
The provisions of the preceding articles do not prejudice the question
of ships employed on the official service of an inter-governmental
organization flying the flag of the organization.
1. Warships on the high seas have complete immunity from the
jurisdiction of any State other than the flag State.
2. For the purposes of these articles, the term "warship" means a ship
belonging to the naval forces of a State and bearing the external marks
distinguishing warships of its nationality, under the command of an
officer duly commissioned by the government and whose name appears in
the Navy List, and manned by a crew who are under regular naval
Ships owned or operated by a State and used only on government
non-commercial service shall, on the high seas, have complete immunity
from the jurisdiction of any State other than the flag State.
1. Every State shall take such measures for ships under its flag as are
necessary to ensure safety at sea with regard inter alia to:
(a) The use of signals, the maintenance of communications and the
prevention of collisions;
(b) The manning of ships and labour conditions for crews taking into
account the applicable international labour instruments;
(c) The construction, equipment and seaworthiness of ships.
2. In taking such measures each State is required to conform to
generally accepted international standards and to take any steps which
may be necessary to ensure their observance.
1. In the event of a collision or of any other incident of navigation
concerning a ship on the high seas, involving the penal or disciplinary
responsibility of the master or of any other person in the service of
the ship, no penal or disciplinary proceedings may be instituted against
such persons except before the judicial or administrative authorities
either of the flag State or of the State of which such person is a
2. In disciplinary matters, the State which has issued a master's
certificate or a certificate of competence or license shall alone be
competent, after due legal process, to pronounce the withdrawal of such
certificates, even if the holder is not a national of the State which
3. No arrest or detention of the ship, even as a measure of
investigation, shall be ordered by any authorities other than those of
the flag State.
1. Every State shall require the master of a ship sailing under its
flag, in so far as he can do so without serious danger to the ship, the
crew or the passengers,
(a) To render assistance to any person found at sea in danger of being
(b) To proceed with all possible speed to the rescue of persons in
distress if informed of their need of assistance, in so far as such
action may reasonably be expected of him;
(c) After a collision, to render assistance to the other ship, her crew
and her passengers and, where possible, to inform the other ship of the
name of his own ship, her port of registry and the nearest port at which
she will call.
2. Every coastal State shall promote the establishment and maintenance
of an adequate and effective search and rescue service regarding safety
on and over the sea and where circumstances so require by way of mutual
regional arrangements co-operate with neighboring States for this
Every State shall adopt effective measures to prevent and punish the
transport of slaves in ships authorized to fly its flag, and to prevent
the unlawful use of its flag for that purpose. Any slave taking refuge
on board any ship, whatever its flag, shall ipso facto be free.
All States shall co-operate to the fullest possible extent in the
repression of piracy on the high seas or in any other place outside the
jurisdiction of any State.
Piracy consists of any of the following acts:
(1) Any illegal acts of violence, detention or any act of depredation,
committed for private ends by the crew or the passengers of a private
ship or a private aircraft, and directed:
(a) On the high seas, against another ship or aircraft, or against
persons or property on board such ship or aircraft;
(b) Against a ship, aircraft, persons or property in a place outside the
jurisdiction of any State;
(2) Any act of voluntary participation in the operation of a ship or of
an aircraft with knowledge of facts making it a pirate ship or
(3) Any act of inciting or of intentionally facilitating an act
described in sub-paragraph 1 or sub-paragraph 2 of this article.
The acts of piracy, as defined in article 15, committed by a warship,
government ship or government aircraft whose crew has mutinied and taken
control of the ship or aircraft are assimilated to acts committed by a
A ship or aircraft is considered a pirate ship or aircraft if it is
intended by the persons in dominant control to be used for the purpose
of committing one of the acts referred to in article 15. The same
applies if the ship or aircraft has been used to commit any such act, so
long as it remains under the control of the persons guilty of that
A ship or aircraft may retain its nationality although it has become a
pirate ship or aircraft. The retention or loss of nationality is
determined by the law of the State from which such nationality was
On the high seas, or in any other place outside the jurisdiction of any
State, every State may seize a pirate ship or aircraft, or a ship taken
by piracy and under the control of pirates, and arrest the persons and
seize the property on board. The courts of the State which carried out
the seizure may decide upon the penalties to be imposed, and may also
determine the action to be taken with regard to the ships, aircraft or
property, subject to the rights of third parties acting in good
Where the seizure of a ship or aircraft on suspicion of piracy has been
effected without adequate grounds, the State making the seizure shall be
liable to the State the nationality of which is possessed by the ship or
aircraft, for any loss or damage caused by the seizure.
A seizure on account of piracy may only be carried out by warships or
military aircraft, or other ships or aircraft on government service
authorized to that effect.
1. Except where acts of interference derive from powers conferred by
treaty, a warship which encounters a foreign merchant ship on the high
seas is not justified in boarding her unless there is reasonable ground
(a) That the ship is engaged in piracy; or
(b) That the ship is engaged in the slave trade; or
(c) That though flying a foreign flag or refusing to show its flag, the
ship is, in reality, of the same nationality as the warship.
2. In the cases provided for in sub-paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) above,
the warship may proceed to verify the ship's right to fly its flag. To
this end, it may send a boat under the command of an officer to the
suspected ship. If suspicion remains after the documents have been
checked, it may proceed to a further examination on board the ship,
which must be carried out with all possible consideration.
3. If the suspicions prove to be unfounded, and provided that the ship
boarded has not committed any act justifying them, it shall be
compensated for any loss or damage that may have been sustained.
1. The hot pursuit of a foreign ship may be undertaken when the
competent authorities of the coastal State have good reason to believe
that the ship has violated the laws and regulations of that State. Such
pursuit must be commenced when the foreign ship or one of its boats is
within the internal waters or the territorial sea or the contiguous zone
of the pursuing State, and may only be continued outside the territorial
sea or the contiguous zone if the pursuit has not been interrupted. It
is not necessary that, at the time when the foreign ship within the
territorial sea or the contiguous zone receives the order to stop, the
ship giving the order should likewise be within the territorial sea or
the contiguous zone. If the foreign ship is within a contiguous zone, as
defined in article 24 of the Convention on the Territorial Sea and the
Contiguous Zone, the pursuit may only be undertaken if there has been a
violation of the rights for the protection of which the zone was
2. The right of hot pursuit ceases as soon as the ship pursued enters
the territorial sea of its own country or of a third State.
3. Hot pursuit is not deemed to have begun unless the pursuing ship has
satisfied itself by such practicable means as may be available that the
ship pursued or one of its boats or other craft working as a team and
using the ship pursued as a mother ship are within the limits of the
territorial sea, or as the case may be within the contiguous zone. The
pursuit may only be commenced after a visual or auditory signal to stop
has been given at a distance which enables it to be seen or heard by the
4. The right of hot pursuit may be exercised only by warships or
military aircraft, or other ships or aircraft on government service
specially authorized to that effect.
5. Where hot pursuit is effected by an aircraft:
(a) The provisions of paragraph 1 to 3 of this article shall apply
(b) The aircraft giving the order to stop must itself actively pursue
the ship until a ship or aircraft of the coastal State, summoned by the
aircraft, arrives to take over the pursuit, unless the aircraft is
itself able to arrest the ship. It does not suffice to justify an arrest
on the high seas that the ship was merely sighted by the aircraft as an
offender or suspected offender, if it was not both ordered to stop and
pursued by the aircraft itself or other aircraft or ships which continue
the pursuit without interruption.
6. The release of a ship arrested within the jurisdiction of a State and
escorted to a port of that State for the purposes of an inquiry before
the competent authorities may not be claimed solely on the ground that
the ship, in the course of its voyage, was escorted across a portion of
the high seas, if the circumstances rendered this necessary.
7. Where a ship has been stopped or arrested on the high seas in
circumstances which do not justify the exercise of the right of hot
pursuit, it shall be compensated for any loss or damage that may have
been thereby sustained.
Every State shall draw up regulations to prevent pollution of the seas
by the discharge of oil from ships or pipelines or resulting from the
exploitation and exploration of the seabed and its subsoil, taking
account of existing treaty provisions on the subject.
1. Every State shall take measures to prevent pollution of the seas from
the dumping of radio-active waste, taking into account any standards and
regulations which may be formulated by the competent international
2. All States shall co-operate with the competent international
organizations in taking measures for the prevention of pollution of
these as or air space above, resulting from any activities with
radio-active materials or other harmful agents.
1. All States shall be entitled to lay submarine cables and pipelines on
the bed of the high seas.
2. Subject to its right to take reasonable measures for the exploration
of the continental shelf and the exploitation of its natural resources,
the coastal State may not impede the laying or maintenance of such
cables or pipelines.
3. When laying such cables or pipelines the State in question shall pay
due regard to cables or pipelines already in position on the seabed. In
particular, possibilities of repairing existing cables or pipelines
shall not be prejudiced.
Every State shall take the necessary legislative measures to provide
that the breaking or injury by a ship flying its flag or by a person
subject to its jurisdiction of a submarine cable beneath the high seas
done willfully or through culpable negligence, in such a manner as to be
liable to interrupt or obstruct telegraphic or telephonic
communications, and similarly the breaking or injury of a submarine
pipeline or high-voltage power cable shall be a punishable offense. This
provision shall not apply to any break or injury caused by persons who
acted merely with the legitimate object of saving their lives or their
ships, after having taken all necessary precautions to avoid such break
Every State shall take the necessary legislative measures to provide
that, if persons subject to its jurisdiction who are the owners of a
cable or pipeline beneath the high seas, in laying or repairing that
cable or pipeline, cause a break in or injury to another cable or
pipeline, they shall bear the cost of the repairs.
Every State shall take the necessary legislative measures to ensure that
the owners of ships who can prove that they have sacrificed an anchor, a
net or any other fishing gear, in order to avoid injuring a submarine
cable or pipeline, shall be indemnified by the owner of the cable or
pipeline, provided that the owner of the ship has taken all reasonable
precautionary measures beforehand.
The provisions of this Convention shall not affect conventions or other
international agreements already in force, as between States Parties to

all States Members of the United Nations or of any of the specialized
agencies, and by any other State invited by the General Assembly of the

2. For each State ratifying or acceding to the Convention after the
deposit of the twenty-second instrument of ratification or accession,
the Convention shall enter into force on the thirtieth day after deposit
by such State of its instrument of ratification or accession.
1. After the expiration of a period of five years from the date on which
this Convention shall enter into force, a request for the revision of
this Convention may be made at any time by any Contracting Party by
means of a notification in writing addressed to the Secretary-General of
the United Nations.
2. The General Assembly of the United Nations shall decide upon the
steps, if any, to be taken in respect of such request.
