Lying. Notwithstanding the as
sertion may seem a bold one, we
think there is in the human mind an
inherent love of lies. A writer very
justly remarks, that there never ye't
was a lalsehood so open and impru
dent, which often repeated, and told
with a smooth tongu?, would not find
many to give it credence. Not a
day passe but some monstrous lies,
decked out with strong assurance of
sincerity and zeal, pass current with
the multitude. There is an appetite
for falsehood in the world, that makea
the many hendtsd monsters gorge the
lood, however dirty, and like a hun

On the 7tu inst. Mr. Niles offered
resolutions for the annexation of
Texas, the substance of which is
that, within one year, Texas shall
form a State not larger than the lar
gest now in the Union, and cede the
residua of her territory to the United
States: $300,000 to be advanced by
this Government to pay the heirs of
Frederick ifewscn the sum furnished
by him to build up the Texan navy,

On motion of Mr. Bailey, of Vir-
Ijrinia, the House resolved itself into
j Corinoittee of the Whole on the Tex
as question. Mr. Hopkins, of Vir
ginia, took the chair, and the debate
Mr. Yancy, of Alabama, being en
titled to the floor, commenced his
speech. In coming to the main ques
tion, Mr. Y. favored ths plan of Mr.
Tibbats, choosing to admit Texas at
once as a State, because in his view
that was the most constitutional way
of disposing of the question.
Ihere were numerous petitions lor
the floor, but Mr. Daily had it assign
ed to him. Mr. B. contended that
there was abundant constitutional
power to admit Texas into the Un
ion. We could eet Texas either un
der the war making porer or under
the power to admit new States into
the Union. j

an untold debt, without knowing the
resources for its payment; 3. And be
bound to assume also the obligations
of Texas in her treaties with loieign
powers, without being aware at pres
ent what they were; 4. Because
there had been nothing proposed to
settle the question of slavery, leav
ing it for future action ; and 5. Its sec
tional bearing, to increase the politi
cal power oi the South.
. -JLiQivenitjjth course, of his re
marks, said that as much as ha & been
urged about precedent, with regard
to the measure, and the necessityjfor
following it, he had never, in the
course of his reading, met with a
similar case that of one independ
ent nation voluntarily uniting with
another. Therefore, we could follow
no precedents the question beinj
entirely new, we had to set one.
He gave his reasons for asserting that
Texas was independent and sover
eign, and equal to other nations of the
earth, and possessed a right to .the
soil, quoting from writers on th lawa
of nations in support of his argument,
and as applicable to the circumstan
ces attending the war between Tex
as and Mexico in 1836, &c
