Doc. 93.-Gen. Hurlburt's proclamation. July 15, 1861. To the Citizens of Northeast Missouri:-- False and designing men, seeking the overthrow of a Government which they have known by its benefits and comforts, have so misled the minds of many of you, that armed opposition to the Constitution and the laws has, in many parts of your country, become the fashion of the times. It becomes my duty, as commanding a portion of the Government troops now in service in your section, to warn yoon all citizens of Northeastern Missouri to devote themselves to their ordinary business pursuits; to all irregular and unlawful assemblies to lay down arms, if taken up against the Government, and to be fully assured that the United States, though preferring a quiet and uniform obedience to the laws, is yet ready and abundantly able to enforce compliance, and to inflict, if it be necessary, the extreme penalty on all active and known traitors. Stephen A. Hurlburt, Brig.-Gen. U. S. Volunteers.

If your authorities desire to avoid this great evil and inconvenience, you will fulfil this order. The county of Marion will also be held responsible, and compelled to pay all expenses of transporting, &c., of this expedition, and of its support while here. This occupation will continue until the marauders who fired upon the train, and those who in open day disarmed Mr. Wilcox, are captured and surrendered to the military authorities, and will be rigidly enforced. If the county authorities cannot be found, or are unwilling to act, the authorities of the city of Palmyra will be required to fill this order and render their charges against the county. All persons who know of parties engaged in the above criminal acts are required to give sworn information to us or Colonel Smith, commanding Sixteenth regiment. S. A. Hurlburt, Brigadier-General U. S. Army.
