such of our citizens, who are sufferers by
the Indian var, passed a preamble and
resolutions, which we publish herewith,
for the information of all concerned, *ith
the hope that something will speedily be
done to relieve the distresses of that class
of our citizens.

ring the late cruel and desolating Semi

neglect of the federal authority, (seasona

vthose rights, an appeal is here made - an
ippeal wbih, where the will is united to
he power ot doing justice, as we believe
t will be on the present occasion, cannot
we preferred in vain.
Be it therefore Resolced. That the Ged
ral Governmnent. as the guardian and
7rotector of the Territories. aud as the
cause, however unwitttngly, of the losses
iustniued by the inhabitants of Florida,
luriug the late Indian war, is bound by
!vsry consideration of justice and tight,
o take the necessary measures to ascer
ain the am.'unt of these losses, and to
11ake provision for their reimbursement
utd liquidation, at as early a period as
his can be conveniently done.
Resolved, That the readiest mode of
fl'ecting this just and equitable object,
Would be the passage of a law by Con
1ress for the appointment of a board of
-omtnissiouers to set in Florida; to take
estimony in relation to the losses incurred;
o ascertain the nature and extent of the
tame. and report upon the subject i 4uch
manner and at such time at Congress
Resolved. That in the Opinion of this
Legislature, the atmount of the losses will
probably fall far s1,'art of the estimates
hitherto mact utn the subject, and would
be covered 'oy a sum quite in the power
of the Government to pay without incon
venijenee to the national treasury.
Resolved-, That there is reason to be
lieve that death and other causes have al
ready removed beyond the hope of me
covery, much of the prof which at an
early period existed in ample abundance
to estnblrsh the nature and amount of in
dividual losses in the late war, and that
the only method by which the losses can
be secuired against a further deprivation
of .the chance of authenticating their
claims, is to be looked for irr the per petua
tion of such restimony in support of them
as is still spored and wvithin the reach of
the claimrants; and to .-fcr this desirable
and all impuortaut end, as well as to pro

Resolved, That our.Senators and Rep

NA T U ALIZ ATION.
The laws for naturalizitng citizens ought
to be collected and condensed into one,
and not scat tered, as they now are, over
the legislative annals of forty years.
To find out how long a foreigner must
reside in the Utnited States, and what
eeremonies he must perform befure he can
be enrolled as a citizen. ie not only nuprob
lem to the foreigner himself, but a mnyste
ry undeveloped to many a lawyer- and
Court tbrou-"sot1 the country.
Inst8a--d.,in. o.;...ur ffre,..ners be
I ing admitted.to the rights. of American
citizenship, who have failed to comply
with'the requisitions of the law, and fre
quently without the imputation- of blam
either upon the- petitioners or the Courts
which so admit them
Indeed, when we consider how many of
these requisitions appear (or lurk), in
strange and irrelevant statutes, our won
der is great that either labor or Bcident
should ever have exposed these secret en
actments to the eye of the curious.
The law, in general. requires a residence
of five years in the United States, 'and a
public notice two years previous to. hi,
application, before an alien can be admit
ted a citizen. But the law also requires
this residence of five years to be continu
ous, insomuch that an accidental visit to a
foieigu country will'iYtierrupt the period
of probation. and he who has so afrayed,
must begin again, and spin ouf the thread
of five years. so that it shall have no flaw.
This provision of the law, forbidding a
threigner who is qualifying himself for
admission to citizenship to leave the terri
tory within five years next preceding his
application, is not to be found among the
Naturalination Laws.' but under an act of
Congress passed for " the Regulatio: ot
