President Johnson has itssued a Pro&
lamation f _ this morning published,offering
rewards for certain accessories to the mare

Jefferson Davis, late of RiChmond, Jacob
Thompson, Clemment C. play, Beverley
Tueker, George N. Sanders, William C.
Cleary, and other Rebela and traitors
against the Government of the United
States, now harbored in Canada. For the
arrest of Davis the reward; offered is one
hundred thousand dollars.; , for Thompson
Clay, Tucker and Sanders, twenty-five
thousand dollars each ; and fOr Cleary,
ten thousand dollars. The Provost-Mar
shal of the United States is ordered to
cause a description of these fugitive crim
inals to be published,who must be arrest
ed within the limits of the United States
so that they may be brought to justice.
"It appears,' says the ,proeamation,
"from evidence in the Bureau of Military
Justice that the murder of the late Presi

persons for whose arrest th6se rewards
!are offered. It will be observed that the
rewardse ate offered for the arest of these
Imen , not as traitors or Rebels, but as ac
icessories, before the fact, tolmurder ,and
attempted murder,and it is to be presum
ed that the evidence in possession of the.
Government is sufficient for conviction.
None of them, except Davis, are now
;probably within the boundaries of the

will be secured by demand, probably, un
