Doc. 140.-General Hurlbut's proclamation. Headquarters line of Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad, Hannibal, July 29th, 1861. The General commanding on this line has now sufficient information to assure him that at all important points on this great road, there are persons of property and influence who can check these predatory bands, and he is determined that they shall. Divisions and sub-divisions will be made as soon as practicable, and portions of the road committed to the handsuries done to this road are simply injuries to private property, and in no manner check the power of the United States, as exerted in its military service, and instead of preventing the introduction of troops, will simply increase and continue the necessity for armed occupation of the country, and postpone still further the return of the community to peaceful and ordinary pursuits, which all good citizens must ardently desire. S. A. Hurlbut, Brigadier-Gen. U. S. A. Com. Line H. & St. J. R. R.
