curr ncy, and for and against theannexa
lion of Texas to the Union.
Texas, The Hoiise proceeded to the
consideration of the following resolution,
offered yesterday by Mr. Adams.
Resolved, That the President of the
United Slates be requested to communicate
to this House whether any proposition has
been, made on the part of the Republic of
Texas to the Government of the United
Slates for the annexation of the said Re
public of Texas to- thi3 Union ; and if such
proposition has been made, what answer
has been returned, and all the correspond
ence relating thereto.
Mr. W 1st said he should vote against
the resolution, for one reason which he
should state. He had in his possession
information, on which he could rely pos
itively, that correspondence had taken
ptace between the government aud the
official organs of Texas, which was not
in a condition' at this time to be rni !
public ; and- the publication of whi.-h
might prnb.ibly have an inj'irious effect
on tho question pending between this "ov
ernmcnt and Texas.

Mr. Adams said he would s'ate the
reason. why the usual restriction had not
been inserted. This was a simnU nn .

history of this nation it was a new thing
h the h's'ory of the world a totally di -ferent
thing from what h id taken place
heretofore by the cession of territory to
the U. States.
On the 6 rst evasion of region of ter- i
ntory which took place under this gov-
ernracnt, namely, that o Louisiana ; it
was objected at the time that that was un- I
constitutional. So far as it was a css;on !
Oa territory, it was his opinion at the time,
and that opinion stood reco-ded on the
journals of the Senate of the United States.
S.t far as the mere question of cession
went, it was his opinion that it was with
in the power of Congress to form such a
Treaty. But in that Treaty certain pro
visions were introduced, relating to the
inhabitants of the territory ceded, and
those' provisions secured to those inhabit
ants advantages and privileges which, in
his opinion, the constitution of the United
States did not authorize the Government
to confer. Such was not only his Own
opinion, but the opinion of the then Presi
dent of the U. States. That opinion was I
well known to the world, and ha 1 been j
expressed in numerous letters written at !
that time. Saich als was the opinion of !
the immediate successor of the President j hoped it would be laid before the public :

For that purpose, he had, in the
proposed an amendment to the
j Contitu'ion. On these questions he had
been over-ruled; and notwithstanding the
opiniDn of the President of the United
States and of the Sccre.tiry of State, the
Congress of that day did presume to car
ry the treaty into full effect, and to pr
f irm functions which, as Mr. A. believ
ed, belonged exclusively to the people of
the tJnited States. Now the ca?e was
changed. If, under the first resolution
which had been adopted, it should anpear
that the proposition had actually been
made to Mexico to cede a portion of ter- J correspondence, it any nau passcu. wnicn

tho rights of citizens of the U. States, and
annong tha rest, th t of the riijht ol bnn

of this Union if that treaty had been
formed, and had been ratified by the
smrtion of two thirds of the Senile it
would thn have to come before thr Hous,
and the precedents of Lonisian and
Florida adduced to answer the objections
to this operation on constitutional grounds.
But here was a totally different case. It
was not the case of a foreign government
ceding a territory to the U. States an i
stipulating for certain advantages to its
citizens uolerthe constitution of the U.
States; but it was a whole nation a
whole people who were proposed to oe
admitted into the Union and to enjoy all
tho rights of citizens. Now this opera
tion was a totally different one from tnai
of receiving a cession of territory; an
operation which, in his opinion, he declar
ed beloie God no power on eartn was ca
pable of performing, except the people oV
Texas on the one side, and the people of
fhe,U. States on the other. The Repub
lic of Texas bad never, by constitution,
conferred on its Executive the power to
make this proposition nodidrwe know
that it was intended by " the 'people of

Mr. Haynes then moved to amend the

Mr. Waddy Thompson regarded tins

the topics which had been broached by
the gentleman from Mass. Mr. T. re
plied briefly 10 some of the remarks of
Mr. A. and expressed his readiness to
meet the subject in every form when it
shou'd come up for the consideration O;
the House.
Mr. Pickens, of S. C, thought no
ba'm could result from laying the infor
mation before ihe public. He thanked
the gentleman from M iss.' lor the candor
with which he had stated his points Bat
he (Mr. P ) was not to be driven to issue
now. The friends of Texas had nothing
to fear Irom this correspondence. He

So the motion tn lay the subject on the

" Lo the poor Indian !" We per
ceive that the project is again under d is
eussion, of employing the north-western
Indians, in the Florida war! It does not
seem to us possible, that the government
of a Christion nation can be so base as to
countenance such an ide?, even for a mo
ment. Stimulate brother to tomahawk
brother, by base bribes! Already the
tank offence has gone up to high heaven,
ihat we have employed some hundreds of
the Creeks ttgainsl the Seminoles ; but as
though disgrace enough had not been in
curred by what has beenincidentally dene
in this way, there are those who would
extend the murderous policy, by bringing
hordes of Indians down from the far west
more than two thousand miles lo hunt
down the miserable remnant of the Sem
inoles! For their sustenance thryare to
provide for themselves buffi lo meat.
An ither beautiful illustration of American
humanity! There are now two hundred
thousand Indians in the 'vest, nain!y de
pendent upon liie buffaloes for their susten
ance ; and when lhe reckless waste of
ihose nnima's, at the instigation of the fur
companies, is taken i o account, it is be
lieved that the supply will be exhausted
within ten or twelve years at best. But
as if to hasten the ti ne of their extinction,
and the consequent famine among the In-
! dians, they are, by the scheme now on
j foot, to lv shot down faster than ever, for
I lhe Florida var. Truly we are a e-reat
a matrnar:i:nous nation.
