A PROCLAMATION by ti.• ?resident,
Washington, Oct. ul , 185 S.
Whereas information has reached me
from sources "hick I cannot disregard,
that certain persons, in violation of the
neutrality laws of the United States, are
making a third attempt to set on foot a mil
itary expedition within their territory, a
gainst Nicaragua, a foreign State, with
which they are at peace. In order to
raise money for equipping and maintain
ing this expedition, persons connected
therewith; as I have reason to believe,
have issued and sold bonds, and other
contracts, pledging the puttic lands of
Nicaragua and the Transit route through
its territorry, as a security for their re
demption and fulfilment. The hostile
design of this expedition is rendered
manifest by the fact that these bonds and
contracts can be of no possible value t)
their holders, unless the preseat govern•
meat of Nicaragua can be overtrown by
force. Besides, the Envdy Extraordinary
and Minister Plenipotentiary of that gov
ernment in the United States, has issued a
notice in persuance of hit instructions, da
ted the 27th inst., forbidding the citizens
or subjects of any nation, except passenger
intendiug to proceed through Nicaragua,
over the transit route from ocean to ocean,
to enter its territory without a regular
passport. sigred by the proper Minister
Consul General of the rpublic resident,
for the country from whence they shall
have departed. Such persons with this
exception, will be stopped and compelled
to return by the same conveyance that
took tilt in to that country.
From these circumstinces the inference
is irresistible that the persons engaged in
this expedi Om will leave the United
States, tvith hostile purposes against Nic
aragua. They cannot, under the guise
which they have assumed, that they are
peaceful enf grants, conceal their rash in
tentions, and especially when they know
in advance that their landing will Le reels.

su fully resorted to previous to the
last expedition, and the vessel in which

lector of the Port of Mobile. Although,
after careful examination, no arms or mu.
nitions of war were aiscovered on board,
yet' when they arrived in Nicaragua they
were found to be armed and equipped,
nod intinediate3y commenced hostilities.
The leaders of the twiner illegal expe
ct! the same character have openly expres
sed their intention to renew hostilities a
gainst Nicaragua. One of them, who has
already been twice expelled from Nicara
gua, has invited, through the public news
papers, American citizens to imigrate to
that Republic, and has desil listed Mobile
as the place of rendezvous itthi deliarture,
attf Sal Junndel Norte as the port to which
they are bound. This person, who has re
nounced his allegiance to the United
States, and cleans to be President of Nic
aragua, has given notice to the Collector
ef the port of Mobile that two or tl n •os
hundred of these imigrants will be prepa
red to embark from that port about the
middle of November.
For these and other good reasons, and
for the purpose of saving American citi
zens Jvho may have been honestly deluded
into the belief that they are about to pro
ceed to Nicaragua as peaceful emigrants, if
any such there be, from the disastrious con
sequences, to which they will be exposed,
I, James Buchanan, President of the U
nited States, have thought fat to issue this,
my Proclamation , enjoining upon officers
of the government, civil and military, in
th sir respective spheres, to be vigilant, ac
tive and fanliful rn suppressing these ille
gal enterprises, nail to carrying out their
standing instructions to that effect, exhor
ting all good citizens, by their regard for
peace find welfare of the country, to aid
the dovs of the public authorities in the
discharge of their duties.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto
set my hand, and c tused the seal of the
United States to be affixed to these pres-
ants. Done at the city of Washington,
on the thirtieth day of October, one
thousand eight hundred and fifty-eight,
and of Independence the eighty-thlrd.
