A PROCLAMATION. WHEREAS, by an act of Congress of the United States of the The President twenty-fifth of May, one thousand eight hundred and thirty-two, 13th July, 1832 entitled “An act to exempt the vessels of Portugal from the payment of duties of tonnage,” it was enacted as follows: “No yessels are sub duties upon tonnage shall be hereafter levied or collected of payment or tonthe vessels of the Kingdom of Portugal: Provided, always, Portugal, to de That whenever the President of the United States shall be satis- and Portuguese fied that the vessels of the United States are subjected, in the lesse duches pay ports of the kingdom of Portugal, to payment of any duties of payable as if the tonnage, he shall, by proclamation, declare the fact, and the passed. duties now payable by vessels of that kingdom shall be levied and paid as if this act had not been passed.”

And whereas, satisfactory evidence has been received by me, Satisfied that not only that the vessels of the United States are subjected in sels are subjected the ports of the said Kingdom of Portugal to payment of du- c. those duties, ties of tonnage, but that a discrimination exists in respect to those duties against the vessels of the United States:

Now, THEREFORE, I, MARTIN VAN BUREN, President of the United States of America, do hereby declare that fact, and pro- claims that For. claim that the duties payable by vessels of the said Kingdom have se of Portugal on the twenty-fifth day of May, one thousand eight ties now payabia hundred and thirty-two, shall henceforth be levied and paid as not been passed. if the said act of the twenty-fifth of May, eighteen hundred and thirty-two, had not been passed. Given under my hand at the City of Washington the eleventh

day of October, one thousand eight hundred and thirty-
seven, and of the independence of the United States the
sixty-second.
