Whereas the laws of the United States

in the States of South Carolina,- Georgia) Ala*-
bama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and
Texas,-by combinations too poweiful to be
suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial
proceedings or by tbe powers vested in the
marshals by law.
Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, Presi
dent of tbe United States, in virtue of the
power in me, vested by the Constitution and
the the laws, have thought fit to call forth the

tbe aggregate number of 75.000, in order to
suppress sa <1 combinations ahd to cause tbe
laws to be duly executed.
The details for this object will be immedi
ately communicated to the State authorities
through the War Departmunt.

avoid any devastation and destruction of or

of peacc'ul citizens in any part of the country
and I hereby command the persons composing
the combinations aforesaid to retire peaccfnliy
to their respective abodes within twenty days
from this date.
