Without tho power to pabt tuch law a, tho States

Un necessary to prevent the rmboiling of neighbor

tl'fiO eietfiing lint power to supples such acts

ItsjoiiKilietioo, in relation to tho belligerent author- j
ilio of .Mexico and Texas, cs ato inconsistent ,
with tho relation of peace and amity wo sustain j
towards thoio Slates. Such a power, therefore, .
betouged to the sovereignty of each of tho State, ;

iiuunpaired a'nd the obligatimis to cxcrciro it have
ucqmred iuliJiliou.il force from tho nature and ';

tho Legislature possesses tho power to pats such

FniDAY, Jan. 8,
Mr Whitnoy suggested Iho propriety of amend
ing the resolution of .Mr Collamcr, so as to extend
it In the additional url'cles, bearing relationship In
tho proposition fur u Sonato. The lO'h Sedion
was par'iculirly impolUiit, and il occurred in luiu
thai all the articles ujijier'.ainiug to thn same sub
jcci, might bo acted upon at once. Perhaps, the
mover of tho rcolution would asciit to an amend
ment including these additional articles.
Mr Collamcr observed that the Council of Cen
sors had presented tbn amendments in different as
pects, Il had been supposed that one iuoividuul
wonld prefer one couric, and ono'.her n difi'ciont
courrc, to produce the samo result; in regard to
the election of a Senate, snmo might prefer a pro
vision requiring a new districting uf the state, or
something of that kind, and hence the 17th article
was presented. All these amendments wero so
shaped that one might be adopted without the
other, or all might be adupted. Ilo was, then,
but follow ing out iho uf.'fotion of tho Council
of Censors whon ho introduced the resolution, and
presented the single, abstract question. Will you
liavo a Senate? The 10lh and 17th artlclos pro
viding fur districts, presented a question entirely
different from this, and ihould not bo mingled with
it j it should not lie considered, Until the first shall
have been finally eottled. In any event, ho con
tidcrod that ati amcndincut of the resolution could
not now be made the resolution was already in
committee, and out of tho control of the conven
tion for time.
Mr Whitney said that he had made the sugges
tion that tho relationship of tho artiulos might be
uodflrsteod. He was not tenacious in proving the
Mr Niles said he wsi opposed to the common
custom in our logislaturas of permitting membcra
lo hold toats until the heel of the session, wheth
er they wore intitled to beats or not ; he would
therefore be glad to know whether tho committee
of Flections were prepared to report on the mat
ter rwfsrred to thsio.
Mr Aiken, chairman of tin committee, replied
that the committee had proceeded in part with an
examination of the credential of members, in the
order of the roll of the convention. So far as
they had gone, l was ascertained there wcrejJly

an assertion which hd been made relative to the
opinion of Judgo Olin. It was in Inn power lo
prove that Judge Ohu had formerly believed the
