baa issued the f allowing Proclamation :
Wars fas. For reasons assigned in my Pro

Wants, Public property has been aaixed;
the mllurlion of revenue obstructed, and duly
comtniMiioned officers, while executing orders,
have been arrested and held as prisoners, or Im
peded in their official duties, without due regard
to legal pnice, by persona claiming to act un
der the authorities of Virvinia and North Caro
lina, an efficient blockade of the porta of those
stales, will, also, D estantislied.
Great excitement has been created in di
plomatic circles in consequence of tbe
President's Proclamation directing a block
ade of southern ports. It appears that a
blockade to be respected by foreign powers,
must not only be effetual, but that due no
tice must be given of such intention to their
representatives. With Brasil and all South
American governments, a notice of 90 days
is required under treaty ; but this has not
been given by our Government, benee con
signments or cottee and other natural pro
ducts dosigned for southern ports are delay
ed in their transportation to that portion of
the countrv. Merchants not being satiaiied
wilh the effects of an immediate blockade.
it has therefore become necessary that spe-
cine enquiries Iks made of the Federal Gov
ernment in regard In this subject, so that
all treat v rights and privileges tie not dam
aged. I'lio Foreign Ministers will insist
that the stipulations shall be respected and
observed, otherwise naval forces will be des
patched hither as a means of foreign protec
tion. The delicacy of tbe question is ap
parent and from what is known may in
volve serious consequences to all concerned ;
at all events, may produce trouble now as
well as in the future
