Senator Houston introduced the following
resolutions in tho United States j
Senate on Monday last:
" IPhereas the Congress of the United

thurity, have 110 power over the subject
of negro slavery within the limits of llio
United States, either to protect or interfere
with it, in the territories or district,
where by municipal hnv, it now exists;
but ns an assurance and guaranty to promote
hnrnionv, quiet apprehension, and
.v...?.rv otuiiuuui prejudice, which by j
possibility, might impair or weaken love
and devotion for the Union in any part of j
'the country, it is hereby
"Resolved, That as people in tcrrito- j
I ries have the same inherent rights of self- j
I |rovernment as people in the ?S'tates: that)
if, in the exercise of such inherent rights, I
the people in the newly acquired territo
i it? uy viiu itoncxn m ot 7'oxas and the
acquisition of Caliio.nia and New Voxiico,
south of the parallel of 30 degrees
and 30 minutes of north latitude, extending
to thn Pacific.;ocean, shall establish
hegro slavery in the formation of their
state governments, it shall be deemed no
objection to their admission as a state or
states into tho Union, in accordanco with
AL- .?? ~
T,m? conauuiuon 01 the United States."
"We remember the time, and that is
not not long since, when tho above preamble
nnd resolution would have passed
with scarcely a dissenting voice, containing
nothing in them which is not true,
just and constitutional; and yet, when
they do come up, they will be torn into
shreds nnd patches by tlic abolitionists
nnd their cousins-german, thofree soilcrs.
men will vote against them without attempting
to show tlmt they are wrong in
principle. The political confederacy
against the south will oppose such resolution,
while m other and happier timeB
its justice would hi * e been unanimously
acknowledged. How little does the slave
'question, or sympathy for the freedom of
the negro, mingle itself in this political
crusade? There arc no slaves at the
ooiun who moor bo h*rcl as the "white
man at the north. There are few colored
"people at the north who arc so contented
and happy and so devoid of caro as the
slavos of the 6outh. "Under no condition
of things can their fate be altered for the
better. Wliy then these reiterated asnaultson
the south and its constitutional
rights? They are false issues, simulated
"and fictitious sympathies, to cripple the
political power of the south, and induce
a1 * - * * *
mum 10 surrender to their persecutors.
The leaders in this erusnde must bowarc
of the masses in the north who have not
yet spoken. T cir eyes arc beginning to
be opened to the real cause of these at
tacks, and when the danger becomes
more threatening the bolt will fall. They
have no cause to fear the south. They
will hear the thunder rolling from the
Worth. The leaders in disunion will not
be permitted to set fire to the Capitol,
nnd be the first to give the alarm. J'hev
will not bo suffered to push on disunion,
and yet shout for the union of the states.
If the south is firm and discreet they v ill
soon see their oppressors floored by the
north, nnd this will be the proper retribution.
We do not wish to disguise the fact,
and it ought not to be disguised, that the
news from Washington is of the iriost
gloomy character, and fears for the safety
of the Union have now reached the
most enlightened' patriots of the land.
Southern Legislatures have bills under
pi uiiiiju 111me collection ot
northern debts? plans'of separation and
division are dratvn up?all our resources
and property north of the Potomac will
fall to nothing?those from abroad will be
returned?and the most glorious republic
the world has ever seen is . destined to fall
!by fanatics fighting for a shadow, and
political knaves hunting for preferment.
Alio uurtn snouia do aroused in time
against the agitators amongst-us. There
istio party question in thS. If we are to
save the Union, we must crush the trait
^ors-who have set this bail in motion.?N.
