Regulations of Trade and Travel

ST. LOUIS, March 28. – Gen. Halleck has issued an order that in view of the rapid extension of steamboat navigation into the Southern States and the importance of having both enjoyed such navigation, controlled by loyal citizens, it is ordered that all license[s] to pilots and engineers navigating the waters of this Department be revoked from and after the 15th proximo, and said pilots and engineers take out new licenses from the Supervision Inspector, who will only grant license to persons of approved loyalty, or in case of doubt will require bonds with security for the loyal conduct of such pilots and engineers.
