PROCLAMATION.

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

A PROCLAMATION.

Whereas associa. cions have been formed for the pur

tersons concem

proceedings are warned ofthe con

horted to abandon

poséin making. WAEREAS it has come to the knowledge of the Government into Oanada, &c. of the United States that sundry secret Lodges, Clubs, or As

sociations exist on the Northern Frontier ; that the members of these Lodges are bound together by secret oaths; that they have collected fire-arms, and other military materials, and secreted them, in sundry places; and that it is their purpose to violate the laws of their country, by making military and lawless incursions, when opportunity shall offer, into the Territories of a Power with which the United States are at peace; and whereas it is known that travelling agitators, from both sides of the line, visit these Lodges, and harangue the members in secret meeting, stimulating them to illegal acts; and whereas the same persons, are known to levy contributions, on the ignorant and credulous, for their own benefit, thus supporting and enriching themselves by the basest means; and whereas the unlawful intentions of the members of these Lodges have already been manifested in an attempt to destroy the lives and

property of the inhabitants of Chippewa, in Canada, and the ed in these illegal public property of the British Government there being;

Now, therefore, I, JOHN TYLER, President of the United puences, andex- States, do issue this my proclamation, admonishing all such bleem, &c. ou evil-minded persons of the condign punishment which is cer

tain to overtake them; assuring them that the laws of the
United States will be rigorously executed against their illegal
acts, and that if in any lawless incursion into Canada they
fall into the hands of the British authorities, they will not be
reclaimed as American citizens, nor any interference made by
this Government in their behalf. And I exhort all well-mean-
ing but deluded persons who may have joined these Lodges,
immediately to abandon them, and to have nothing more to do
with their secret meetings, or unlawful oaths, as they would
avoid serious consequences to themselves. And I expect the
intelligent and well-disposed members of the community to
frown on all these unlawful combinations, and illegal proceed-
ings, and to assist the Government in maintaining the peace of
the country, against the mischievous consequences of the acts
of these violators of the law.
Given under my hand, at the city of Washington, the 25th
L. s. day of September, A. D. 1841, and of the Inde-
pendence of the United States the sixty-sixth.

JOHN TYLER.

Daniel WEBSTER, Secretary of Statc.
