far as then seemed to he necessary, the re
spective rights and obligations of the belig
orent parties and of the citizens of the
the United States:
And where,as, Subsequent information
gives reason to apprehend that armed
cruisers of the belligerents may be tempted
to abuse the hospitality accorded to them
in the ports, harbors, roadsteads, and other
waters of the United States, by making
such waters subservient to the purposes of
" now, therefore, I, Ulysses S. Grant. Pres
ident of the United States of America, do
hereby proclaim and declare that auy fre
quenting and use of the waters within the
territorial jurisdiction of the United States
by the armed vessels ol either bel
ligerent, whether public ships or pm
vateers. for the purpose of preparing
for hostile operations, or as posts of
observation upon the ships of war or
privateers or merchant vessels of the other
belligerent Iving within or being about tq
enter the jurisdiction of the United States,
must be regarded as unfriendly and offen
sive, aud in violation ot that neutrality
which it is the determination of this gov
ernment to observe; and to the end that the
hazard and inconvenience ot such appre
hended practices may be avoided, I lurtber
proclaim ami declare that from ana alter
the twelfth day of October instant, amt
during the continuance of the present hos
tilities between France anti the North Ger
man Confederation and its allies, no ship or
war on privateer of either belligerent shall

or place of resort for any warlike purpose,
or for the purpose of obtaining any facili
ties of warlike equipment; and no ship of
war or privateer of either belligerent shall
be permitted to sail out of or leave any port,
harbor, roadstead- or wateis subject to the
iurisdiction of the United States from

shall have previously departed, until after
the expiration of at least twenty-four hours
from the departure of such last mentioned

supplies beyond what may be necessary for
her immediate use; and ns such vessel
which may have been permitted to remain
within the waters of the United States for
the purpose of repair shall continue within
such port, harbor, roadstead or waters
for a longer period than twenty-four
hours after her necessary repairs
shall have been completed. unless
within such twenty-four hours a vessel,
whether ship of war. privateer or merchant

States more than twenty-four hours, by
reason of the successive departures from
such port, harbor, roadstead, or waters of
more than-one vessel of the other bel

each or either of the two belligerents in the
same port, harbor or roadstead or waters,
the order of their departure therefrom
shall he so arranged as to afford the op
portunity of leaving alternately to the
vessels ot the respective belligerents, and
to cause the least detention consistent with
the objects of this proclamation. No ship

certain waters of that empire for pur
poses of trade, he has by no means relin
quished Ms right of eminent domain or
