The President, to-day, has issued a pro
clamation raising the blockade west of the 1
Mississippi, and declaring all ports open to
foreign commerce the 1st of July next, on
the terms set forth in the proclamation of
the 22d of May last, but says it is to be an
derstood, however, that the blockade now
rescinded was international,and was for the
purpose of proclaiming the sovereign right
of the United States, and the greater or less
subversion of civil authority in the region
to which it applied, and the impracticability
of at once restoring that in due efficiency,
may, for a season, make it advisable to em
ploy the army and navy of the United States
towards carrying the law into effect.
The President has directed the Hon. W.
P. Dole, Commissioner of Indian Affairs, to
proceed to the Indian country, to effect im
portant treaties with'the hostile and peace
able Indians. In his instructions to Mr.
Dole, the President says he deems the pres
ent a fitting time for a renewal of the efforts
to press upon the Indians the urgent neces
sity of abandoning their wild, roving habits,
and of adopting the more peaceful and
industrious arts of civilized life. There is
no longer any region of territory left within
the United States where iheir rude habits
and mode of life can prevail as formerly.
They are being pressed and hemmed in on
every side by the advancing settlements of
an adventurous and enterprising people.
They must, therefore, adapt themselves to
the new order of things, and live in peace
among themselves and with their white
neighbors, or they must inevitably perish.
The policy of settling them upon suitable
reservations, where they may, with the aid
andfriendship of the government, be able to
subsist themsealves by arfrieulturand othe
mndnattrious pursuits, is left witOu
Indians, and familiarity with their charac
ter, seem to point him out as the proper
officer of the Indian Department to visit the
various Indian tribes in the territories, and
to enter into such treaties with them ss will
best secure the permanent tranquility of our
borders and promote their future welfare
' and prosperity. _
The commanders of the various mitar\ 1
districts have been instructed to co-operate b
with Mr. Dole, and to render him all the 1
assistance he may require.
Mr. Dole has been unwell for several days,
but is now discharging the duties of his
office, and will soon be able to leave for the
