MTcnf.T.Y.fi-Krv AUAUUMUMWI A THE HISTORY OF A DAY. SKETCH FOR HUSBANDS. BY T. S. ARTHUR. Mts. Lundy had been up for half an hour, busy about one thing and another, when ilr Lundy rubbed his eycs open, and concluded. aftcr thinking oer the matter for somc five or ten minutes, that it was timc for liim to bc getting ready for breakfast. So he crept out of bcd, and commenced dressing himsclf. 'I wish you would get mc some hot water, Agny,' he said to his wifc. 'I must shavc my sclf this morning. Mrs. Lundy was engagcd in dressing a little rcsisting urchin 4 Ycs, dear,' she rcplied, 'in a momcnt.' and kcpt on with hcr work, intending to finith dressingthc child licfore she went down stairs for the hot water. Mr. Lnndy waitcd about aniinutc, and thcn said a little iinpaticntly, 'I wish you would get it for me now, Ag nes. I cannot finish dressing mysclf until I shavc. The wife put down the child and wcnt for the hot water, whilc her husband seated him sclf and waitcd for hcr rcturn. On rcceiving what he had askcd for, Mr. Lundy commenced shaing himsclf. When about half donc, he turncd to his wife who was leaving thc room, and said 'I wuh you would tell Bill to cleau the old boots. My new ones hurt mc' Aftcr shaving and dressing himsclf, Mr. Lundy wcnt down stairs to read his ncwspaper until breakfast timc. Eight o'clock was thc hour, althoujrh thc fact and the timc did not always agree togcthcr, a circumstancc that frcttcd Mr. Lundy, who was a vcry punctual man. Mcan whilc Mrs. Lundv had hcrself and fivc children lo "et rcadv for the morning mcal, & she was working dilicntly, in ordcr to ac comnlish hcr task. But "Maggy's hair was stubborn, and took twicc as long as usual to come into propcr ordcr, and " illy's tenipcr wasmawore condition than JMaggy s liair. and worried the mother a ereat dcal more. And thcn, to hclp the matter, the baby would 'nt sit quietly with the nursc, and cried all thc timc. 'Therc, I havc brokcn my shoe string,' says Willy, as the tie at which he had bccn jerking gavc way with a snap. 'Givc me a pin, mother,' calls out Maggy, who is diessing hcrself. Fie minutes arc consumed, in mmmnging drawers t:nd Iioxas, for a shoc-string, which must bc had, as iuimcdiatcly after breakfast thc thildrcii must all start for school, and therc would bc no time thcn to look for shoe strings. At Iast, nfter an cxciting sccnc of aliout threcKiuarters of an hour, m whicMrs. Lun dy is worried ahnost todeath, thc children arc put in ordcr to meet their father at the break fast tablc. And now, Mrs. Lundy, in niomen tary expcctation of hcaringthe bell, commen ccs putting herself in right trim. Ilcr hcad is to lio fomlied, and a morc tidy drcss to be mt on, for hcr husband cannot bcar to sce his wifc at the breakfast tablc in dihabil!e- Iler hair is all over her facc, when ting a ling a !ing ling, sounds np the stairs. For full tcn minutes has she hcard hcr husband's heavy treail, as he paecd the parlor floor, to hcr the unmi.-takable cvidcnce that the cook was be- ind hcr time. AVith ncrtous hastc, she drives thc couib into her long hair. Crack! It was brokcn. 'Agncs, ain't you drcssed yct?' cxclaims hcr husband, coming !o the chamber uoor, with his watch in hi hand. 'It is ten minutes past 8 now. I've leen rcady and waiting for morc than half an hour.' 'I'll be down in a minute. I'veonly got my hair to put up, and a drcss to slip on,' rcplied .Mrs. l.umlv. 'A minute, vcs, I know what your minutes are. 1'm surcyou'vc bccn up long cnough to have ureiscu lor brcaklast a uozcn timcs o- ver.' lou forget that I had the children to get rcady," rvplicd Mrs. Lundv. Silenceil, but not c-onvinccd, the husband gocs grumblingdown stairs, and rceommcnees walking the JIoor,but wilh u heavier and morc rapid trcad. Goupandsoc if your mother isn t most rcadv: 1 am ina hurrv this morning,' Mr. Lun dy says to one of the children, nfter a lapsc of two minutes, which seem to the iinpatient man at least lie. 'l'm coming,' he hcars on the stairs, from his wife. Tm glad of it,' he rathcr grutHy rcsponds, 'I knew vour minutes would'nt be much less than half an hour. I wish you would trvtobe more punctual; this everbeing bchind timc anuoys me terriblv.

Jumly. lhcy were uttcreu as a kind ot cxcusc, and he regarus them as of no morc account. 'The sauiagcs arc done to death' said Mr. Lundy. The wifc rcmaincd silent, but looked wor- ned. 'Mcre dish water!' Mr. Lundv sethis sau- ccr down, with an exprcssion of disgust on his tace. JLuc coliee was not to his hking. 'I wish, Agnes, that you would see a little aftcr Sarah in thc mornin'j. AYe havc'nt had anything fit to cat at breakfast timc for a month. I do'nt know how I can do mortTthan Inow do. Mr. Lundv. l'm sure I'vc not had a mo mcnt to breathe sincc I cot up.' 'Still I think you might spare a moment or two to see if things werc going right in the kitchcn. Comfortable mcals are half the coin- fort a man has at home.' Mrs. Luiidy sighed, butanswercd nothing to tms ungenerous rcmark. 'Your head looks like a pcrfect mop, Agnes,' said her husband as he leaned back to pick his teeth, aftcr having finishcd his breakfast, and tnade a more careful observation of his wifc's appcarance. 'You aregctttngdownnght care Icss about vour nerson.' Mr. Lundy did not expeot any rcply to this; and was not disarmointed. Fourch'ldren to wait upon at thetable kent ilrs. Lundy too busy to cat more tliann mouui ful or two hcrself. It was timc to get ready the three oldcst for school. when they had ea- tcn thcir mea and she left the table, whei e she had been a mcrc waiter. and not partici pant in the good cheer; to put on Maggy's bon net and gloves, tojmnt up AVilly's books and cap, and change Mary's dress, shc having spil !cd a cup of coffeeon it at the tablc 'Thc children -will bc late to school,' calls out the punctual Mr. Lundy, who has gone back into the parlor, to finish perusing an ar- ticle his impaticnce about breakfast had not pcrmittcd him to read through. Justthen tus boots arc urougnt in. Why did'nt you black the old pair, as Isaid?' he asks of the boy, impatiently. 'I did nt know you wanted the old pauy re plies thc boy. 'Did'nt Alrs. Lundy tell you that I wished thcni?' No sir.' 'Wcll, I do. Go and brush them as quick Iv as vou can. Ioueht to have been at the store long ago. Mrs. Lundy, who is coming down stairs with the children, at last ready for school; hears what has been said to the-boy, and is theroby rcmindcd of her neglect in 'not having infor- med him that her husband wanted his old boots. I declarc, Mr. Lundv, I forgotto tell John,' she says. 'I have so much to think about and sce after.' 'Xo matter I'll altend to it mysclf next timc. If you want a good servant serve your- self.'coldly rcplies Mr. Lundy. I he children olt to school, Mr. lunuy aDout taking himsclf ofTalso, says, as he stands with his hand upon thc door: 'I wisli, Agnes, you d see that &arali nas um- nerintimc. You know how it annoys me to wait.' 'I will trv to have it sot ready,' replies the wifc, an exprcssion of pain and lossitude pas sing over hcr facc Are you not wcll, Agnes?' Mr. Lundy asks. 'Xb,' shc rcplies, Tve been suflering with jt drcadful tooth-ache all the morning. and I feel as if everv ncrvc in my hcad were a- livc.' WTjv don't vou havc thc tooth out? I would not sufl'cr as much as you do if I had to havc cvery tooth in my head cxtractcd.' -Mrs. Lundy turns away witn a : tceung oi discouragcment. She is heavily burdcned, & lias no true sympathy. Mr. Lundy walks'towards his storo, health in evcry vcin, and vigor in evcry muscle; and his wife gocs wearily up to hcr chamber, half mad with pain, and eery nervc excited and quivcring Aftcr xMr. Jundy lclt lor lus store liis wne took the baby and carcfulh-washed and dres sing it, during all thc timc of which opcration its loud piercmg scream rang wildly througu hcr head, and causcd both tooth and hcart to throb, as if beaten with ahamnicr. Aftcr that she had to drcss herself nnd go to markct. Walking in thc open air made hertooth worse instcad ofcausit'g the pain to abatc. When she came home she was so complctcly cxhaus ted as to be compelled to lie down for an hour. This brought twclve o'clock, when Maggy, Willy and Marycameboundinginfrom school, hnngry and impaticnt, and the mother had to see al out getting them their diuners, and at tcnding to their numberlcss little wants, until it was timc for them to go to school again; Ilalfpast one camo, and two was the dinncr hour. Kemcmbering hcr husband's last wonls about punctuality, Mrs. Lundy went into the kitchcn to see what progrcss thc cook was ma king. Shefound Sarah"pairingthp potatocs, and looking as unconccrncd as if it was yct two hours to dinucr timc. 'Your dinner will bc late again,' said Mrs. Lundy. 'Why is it that you kcep tliingsback in this way, when I have told you over and o ver ajain "that we wish dinncr punctually t2 o'clock? My fire got down,' rcplied Sarah, indifler ently.

Punctually attwo shc heard the strcet door open, and Mr. Lundy's dccidcd stcp along the passagc. 'Is it Dossiblc! Too bad too bad !' shc hcard him say, as he panscd, on his way up stairs. at thc dinimr room door, and saw that cven the table was not set. 'I wonder what ood it is for a man to have a housc of his own if hn ran'thave thincsas hc plcases. 'I declarc, Agnes. I'm out of all patiencc!' he said, entering her chamber a few moments aftcrwanls. 'I told you when I wcnt away this morning that I wished dinncr at this hour, nml tlmrn is'nt .i sirrn of its beincr ready." It n;nllv lnoksas if it werc donc on purnosc' 'It'I had thccooking todo.you should nevcr wait a minute: bnt 1 Van't always make ser- v.nnts iln .is I nloase.' rcnbcd Mrs. Lundy.

Mrs. l!undy feared her husband, or, rathcr, dreadecl and shrunk under his disjilcasurc But she was a meek, paticnt, suitenng woman, who rarclyspqke of what she felt, or resented an indignity. " She did not reply to her hus band s dogmatic and dictatonal woras,any mr- ther than to say to him in a subducd man ncr 'Ifyou hadignorant, careless, self-wincd I rish trirls to dcal with, instead of intelligent clerks, you might find it as difEcult as I do to have all things in ordcr.

My business has tobeat- tcnded to. And nwavhe fionnced from the housc. In the bell runff. 'Tell Sarah that Mr. Lundv conld'nt wait, and fiatldon'i want any dinner, sid Mrs. Lundy to hcr waiter. A e fnr the vcrv nnnctual and amiable hus band, he wcnt to his store and sat through the entire afternoon, without putting hand m tho'j: to business. A little more patiencc woull have lost him nothing, and madc both him and his wife happicr. .. Aflo. ai T.nndv left the housc, his wite tried to do somc plam sewing for her children thnt was vnr-rauoh needed. But what with the blinding pain in her head and facc, and the blinding tears in her eyes, she found it im possible to take a stitch correctly. So kshe took the baby, thinking to nurse hcr if she could do nothing elsc. But the baby, wide a wake and'full of life, was not contcnt to sit quietly in hcr lap: but must be dancing and jumping every moment. Patiently.for neaily an liour,uiu tue moiucr uear me jaranu snut. nf the child's nuick motions, until a faintneas overcame her, and she was vcry near falling from hcr chair. Alter rcsigning thc baby Mrs. Lundy went into her chamber and laid herself upon the bcd. She had takcn little or no food that day; and had been suffcring from sevcrc pain; had been worried and excited by the children. and worse than all, hcr husband's un- svmnathising and unfecling conduct had madc her lcel wretcneu. is ii auj nouuer mai suu felt ill: or that when Mr. Lundy returncd in the cvcning, he shcu'd find her in a condition rcquinng medical treatmcntr Tlic doctor was called in. IIc did not un- dcrstand her case. IIow could he Ihe mcdicinc he gave created strong revulsion in hcr systcm, and did her actually more hann than good. She was confined to her chamber two wccks, and then went forth again into hcr houschold, wcaker and more nervously scnsi tive than beforc, to dircct, control vnd ministcr to the wants of her ever wanting, cver active children. and to wait unon hcr husband, con- sult his tastes, and bcar his complaints when- cvcrany thing tnat wcnt wrong in uie nousc hold abridged his comfort in the smallcst de- jrcc. Ycar aftcr year hcr duties and hcr toil m- crcased. The lustorv of a day wc havegivcn was an cpitomizcd history of hcr lifc. Mr. Lundy, wrappcd up in his schcmes of gain and rigid in his notions of ordcr, punctuality, for mal propricties, had no rcal sympathy for his wiie, and was coinplainmg ot tne utue lrreg ularitics incidcnt to his houschold, and cver adding to, instead of relicving, the opprcssivc, wearying anu cver recurnng uuiies wai were bearing ncr down. It was a common thing for him, robust and in high health, to sit in his easy chair, with dressing gown and slippcrs, and ask his tired wifc, who could scarccly move without fceling pain, to hand liim this, that, and the othcr thing; to ring the bell for the servant, or evcn to go up to thcir chamber and bring him lomcthing from a diawcr, to which he was not willing tliata domestic should go. jMcaker, more paticnt, morc loving in her character, grcw Mrs. Lundy. By suflering, she was purified. It madc the heart ache to sce her moving by the sidc of hcr ercct, florid, elastic-trcadins husband, more likc a palc, shadowy form, than a rcal substance; and to feel assured that in a very httle whilc the pla ccs that knew her, and the children and friends who loved hcr, would know her and love her no morc. At last she dicd, and six little ones were left without the affcctionatc care of a mother. If her husband who wcpt so bitterly over her too carlv "rave. did not murdcr her, we know not the mcaning ot the word murdcr. ncn it was too late he could remcmbcr hcr long suf fcring, her patiencc, hcr wrongs rcceivcd at his hands: but when she lived hc was too selfish to apprcciate or properly carc for hcr. Every whcrc, m books of domestic cconomy, In tales. cssavs. newsnancr para2raphs, and m currcnt convcrsation, do we hcar lteratcd and reitcrated the lcsson ofa woman s uuty to hcr husband and m hcr household. she must have cver-thinr in order.and stady the art of plea sin her lord as scduously as if he were the most cantious, cxactinir tyrant in the world, And, verily, in hissmall way, hc too often is a miserable tyrant. a woman is cxpeciuu iu uu pcrfect in cverytlung. JNo aitowancc is maue for the ill health conscauent upon hcr maternal duties, not for the pcculiar, wearying, and si lent nature of the cares attendant tnercon. But who writes and talks of the husband's du ties? Who teachcs him lessons of forbcarancc n.itinncc. and kind consideration for his over- taskcd wife? Little is said on this score; the world gocs on, and hundreds likc Mrs. Lundy, no down to the trrave vears beforc their time, and no one drcamsthat their husbands are ac rcssorics to their death. But it is cven so. Not in maternal duties alone lies thc cause of hn. wifn's mleface and droopimr form, but in theover-tasks of her ncculiar position. Shc worked too hard hardcr than a slavc iu the rotton field. Too oftcn shc is nursc and :emnstress for half a dozen children, and su perintcndcnt of hcr houschold besides. She will bendover ncr neeuie nignt aner nigm, m pain, or suflering from lassitude, while her hus band sits cnjoying his volunie by her sidc, not drcaming that" it is duty, in order to save his wife from toil bcyond ticr strcngth, to prolong his labors, if that be necessary, in order toaf ford hcr the assistancc rcquircd in meeting the thoasand wants of her children and household. If therc arc any extra tasks to pcrform any extra excrtions to make. thc husband is the one who should pcrform or makc them, not the wife, for hc has supcnor strength. We hcar a grcat deal about thc husband coming home,wcaricd from liis sturc, hw ooun. tin" room, his workshop, or his ollice; and thc wite is rencatedlv cnioined to him on this ac count, and toprovide comfort, quieludc and rc- posc for him at home. JLtns is all well enougn, and she should do as far as lies in'her powcr.

SPEECII OF Mr. CoUamerj of Vermontj OX THE MEXICAX WAR. The Ilonsc having under consideration the rcf- fcrcncc of thc President's Annual Mcssage MR. COLLA1IEK, said: Mn. Si'Eakee: I have listened, with a good degrce of attention and intcrcst, to thc dcbatcs which have occurrcd, in this Housc, on some of thc suljccts contained in thc President's messsage, and have been dcsir ous of cxtracting from them somc general princi- ple. I havc hcard gcntleincu dbcuss them now ior many days, and havc secn thc partics, or rath cr their lcaders, who havc spoken hcrc, and who havc explaincd thcir respcctive vicws on the crcat (luestions which now agitate the country. I havc, too, with regrct, hcard thcra indulging in but ill disguised pcrsonalitics in rcgard to thc motivcs of inosc wno uinerea trom them in opimon. This has generally bccn done with a deccnt rcspect to dccorum, in point of form, but gentlemen have cvidtntly bccn inclincd to think and to say that those who differcd from them cn thc points of pub lic policy, and especially in relation to this war, were encmics of the country. They havc, at lcast, givcn the community so to undcrstand and so to hclicve. Xow, a man may difler with me in opin ion, on a question deeply intercsting to oir com mon country, and yet ncithcr of us be an encmv of that country- The truth is, men ercct in thcifr minds a standard of national prosperity, and thcy take it for grantcd that, if any one opposcs their course of adrancinr tliat irrositmtii.jiml psrpri'allv if hc actually repudiate it, he must be an cnemy of pcrity is, cxclusivcly, that standard they have thus crcctcd. It sccms to mc, sir, that thc two partics in this Housc, and in this countrv, ditfer cntirclv in relation to thc great point of whcrcin national lavsiiertta consists, it not even in the crcat cnus ana purposcs oi govcrnmcnt. 1 can but spcak lor inyselt. l relation to thc great ttids ot govcrn mcnt, I havc an idca, more or Icss pcrfect, and it is csscntially this : to promotc thc cood of thc pcoplc.to mcliorate their condition, to clcvate them in their phisical, moral, intcllcctnal, and so- cial condition. 1 hc means to thc accoinphshmcnt of this erid consists m so dirccting ourgovcrnmcnt as to devclop our resources and cniouragc domes tic industry.nnprOTc thc raeans of intercourse and cducation, advance our agriculturc, ccmmcrcc, and mannfacturcs, improve our laws and thcir administration, and thus makc of us a hoinogcn- eous pcople, all elevatcd and adomcd with atastc and rcfincment bccominc the memlcrs ofa qlori- ous rrpublic This, to my mind, is nutionul vros- pmty. My cxpcrience and observation hcrc, has not bcen'cf great cxtcnt, as it is not over iivcjcars sincc I bccamc amcmbcr of thisllouse; but, wilh that amount of congrcssional cxpcrienccind aftcr carefully listening to thc progrcss of this dchatc, 1 am constrained to concludc that gcntlcmcn on thc oppositc sidc of this Ilouse have arcctcd in their minds a vcry diflercnt standard of nalional jiron perily. According to thcir conccptions thc pros pcrity of thc nation consists in what advanccs its military glory; in whatcver cxtcnds the arca of tcnitory posscsscd; in whatcver givcs cclat by blood and gunpowdcr and fcats of aims. With them that is national jmuperity. I do not say thcv arc prcparcd to dcny that tlityootlof our oxn jxojjc is thc true tnd of govcrnmcnt, but it bccomcs cx rccditifrlv difHcult for mc to undcrstand how tliat cnd can bc rcached by pursuing their coursc of national prospcnty. so long, howcvcr, as tlicy retain that idca they will, very naturally, rcgard all who obstruct thcir coursc, and who would nut a stop to stich a caner of prospcrity, as cncinics of their country, anu traitors to its Uovemnicrit. Ihc diffcrcnce bctwccn us, thcn, is palpahlc, broadmd fundamcntal. We diffcr entirely in thc idca ol what -onstitutcs natiinud gloty and nalional jnvs pcrity. To show that mcre cxtcnsion of tcrritory. and especially if donc with thc sword, is really a chcr isncd idca of thc party who sustain thc prcscnt Exccutive, it becomcs necessary to takc n short retrospection of the coursc ofevcnts for thc last fourycars; and, in so doing, I think it will bc quite manifcst that, in cntcrtnining and prosccut ing this cljcct, so blind and headlong has bccn thc coursc, that thc rcal good of our own pcople, thc clcar provisions of thc Constitution, and thc dictatcs of ctcmal trutli and juslicc,hae been a likc forgottcn and disrcgarded. Up to thc ycar 184-1, the political parties which divldcd this "country had differcd, and at timcs very widcly, in relation to thc mcans and mcas urcs which would bcst cffcct the grcatcst good to thc grcatcst nnmber, or to all, Df our own pcople; and, as they respcctively werc in powcr, they a dopted thcir respcctive favorite system of mc.is urcs tothis end. This was of couiparativcly little and tcmporary importancc to the country, be causc, if the mcasnrcs opcratcd badly, they werc casily repcalcd or changcd Bat in tlie 2Sth Con grcss a new course of public policy was struck ouL Mcn scem to havc bccomc nnwilling to lc satisfied with improving our own bread patrimo nv. thc boon ol llcaven, and a new- coursc of ter- ntorial tittnsion was bcgnn. This, unlikc formcr mcasurcs, which misht bc chanued if on tnaltlicy provcd unsatlsfactory, was, when done, incapalle ofrepcal; and yct the coursc was entcrcd upon with a hot hastc and unscemly prccipitancy. The first sccnc in this crcat drama (1 hope it may not turn out a tragtdy to us) was thc annexation of lrxas. It is nndoubtcdly true, therc were somc mcn. m the northcm and castcrn parts oi tnc unneu Statcs, who insistcd tluit thc powcrs of the Gcuer al Governmcnt of the Unitcd Statcs should bc so dirccted add excrciscd as to produce tlie abolition of slavcry, within thc statcs whcrc it cxistcd; W the great hxly of thc pcople, cven in thc frcc Statcs, held, in common with the pcop'.e of slave States, that the institution of slavcry was cxclu sively within thc control of thc Statcs werc it cx istcd, and that thc United Statcs GoTcrnment should put forth no excrcise of power, eithcr dl rectlv or indircctlv. to aflect it within thoseStates. The issue was not tchich troy shall thc powcr of thc Unitcd Statcs ce cxerciseu -jor or ugaimi sia very but the question was, shall any sucli power be cxerciscd in any vxty on the suhject. On thb point, I say, thc great body of our pcople held but one sentimcnt. But it sccms that, in order to induce thc pcople of the South to cntcr into the annexation policy, an unfoundcd alarm was oreated,and this doctrine of non-intrrftrence was discardcd. And, in order to sccurc and pcrpctiitc slavcrr in the States.the exercisc of the power of thc Unitcd Statcs Gov cinmcnt was inTokcd, and was put forth for the annexation of Tcxas, for that yurpose; and thus the sonthern tlartlioldcr has actually gone over to th! ultra rxJitioil aloliiionist. on this issue, and holds, with him, thc doctrine that the powcr of this liovcrnmcnt should bc cxercisca, at least in dircctlv. on thc subicct of slavcry within thc Statcs; and we are thus driven to the wall, aud all that i left ns is to say, if it is scttled that this power is to bc uscd, we must soon say, tchich way it shall be used. On that point 1 think little doubt will long cxist ln proof of the positicn ihat such was the pur pose for which this annexation policy was com menced, I do not refcr to thc indh idual opioion oraction of any private citizcn3 whatcver, Imt to thc public records of this countiy, inado and pro mulgated by thc olh'cial organs of the Gokcrn ment. Tho Hecntary of Stott (Mr. Calhoun) in his onicial lcltcn, as the organ of this Govcrn ment, to the British ministcr, Jlr. Packenhamnd to Mr. King, then onr ministcr to France, opcnly, and frankly, and officially announccs, that such was thc cause andpurpose of the fonnation of the trcaty for thc annexation of Texas; that it was donc to prevcnt thc abolition of slavery ui Tcxas, and thercby to sccure the institution here. Thus, sir, the treaty-making power of the Gov crnment of the United States has actually been invoked and used, for the avowed purpose of per- pctuating slavery within thc Statcs. That treaty was rejccted hy the Senate, and why t Can it be possible that gentlemen can ex pcct to disgnise and evade this point ? Sir.it was rejccted bccause it attempted to annex, as Texas. all thc country west to tlie Rio Graude, and thus took in a largo part of three of the provinccs of Mexico.Jand the Jfcxican towns, settlemcnts, and posts on east side of tbat river. It is true, some Senators were opposed to annexation entirely, yet it was for the reason I have stated that thc treaty rcccived the decidcd rcjection of the Sen ate. Now, sir, had that tseaty bccn ratificd by tlic Senate, can any man doubt that it would havc bccn a constitutional act, and that Texas, or at lcast so muchas belongcd toher, would have been' constitntionally annexed to tliis country? Ih the case of the American Insurance Company vs. Cfcr ter, 1st Pcters' Ueports, the Suprcmc Court dc cided that tcrritory may be acquircd, by the trea ty making powcr of tliis Govcrnmcnt, and when so acquired it was thcreby bronght within our ju risdiction, and thcn the law making powcr of Con gress might be cxerciscd over it. I insist that thc distribution of the powcrs of this Governmcnt in to thediflerent departmcnts is perfect and exclu sivc The same powcr cannot be possesscd and cxcirised by two distinct departmcnts. It would involro uttcr conflict and confusion. Mr. Madi son, spcaking of the Icgislativc and the treaty making powcr, says: "The samc powcr cannot hclong, in whole, to bo'Ji departmcnts. or benron- crly so vcstcd as to opcrate scperatclv in cach. Still more cvident is it, that tie same sixxijicfunc tion or act cannot possilly Mointo the tiro rfc;rt- nwnu, ana vr sejitraieiy crerasaue by tach. Agnin. hc says "A concurrcnt authority in two indc pcndent departmcnts to pcrform tlicsamcfunction with rcspect to the samc thinir. would be ns awk- ward in practice as it is unnatural in thcory." (Istttrs ofllelridus, Xo, 2.) It will hardly lic contcndcd that, when any dc partmcnt dcclincs to exercisc its powcr, it thcn dcvolvcs upon another. It cannot hc true that when thc Prcsidcnt and Senate ncglcct or dcclinc to makc a treatv, thcn Concrcss can do it. Bntthesc clcar provisions and constnictions of tne constitution werc cntirclv ovcmHlc and dis- rcganlcd, in thc annexation of Tcxas. An aiiDeal was takcn from the treaty-making powcr to thc law-making powcr, and "Congrcss proccedcd to leyislate for u country not in our jurisdiction, and to makc, by jomt resolutkms a comuact with Tcx as, a foreign indcpcndcnt Statc, thus usurjiing thc treatyjnalhy pourcr; and sothc dccd was done. l his nas cver appearcd to mc as a gross lolation of thc Constitution. But it is donc, and cannot now Ik undonc ; and I bnng it forward now onlv to show fliat this annexation: policv. in its inccn- lion, and in all the progrcss it has madc, and is. maKing, is ncauiong anu unscniimlous. ii is, nowcvcr, io oc rccroncctcd, tliat in onc imKnant particular tlie rcsolulions of annexation entirely differcd from thc trcatv. in this rcsncct. They did not carry thc westcm houndary of Tcx as to the liio Grande, or to any othcr ccrtain linc. but covercd onlv what was includcd in and rinlit- fally Ulongtd to Tcxas ; thus leaving the fcttling iuai uouuiiary to. anu expressly providing that it was to hc donc by, this Governmcnt, not Tcxas. Now, tliouL-Ii thc nuniosc and ohicct nf the trrntv of annexation, olliciailv nnnounccd, as I hare nl ready stated, was all fully beforc Congrcss when thc rcsolutinus were cntcrtaincd, yct it is possible somc may have vdtcd for thcm'on some othcr motivcs. Clcar it i. that so imncrstivc was thc force of party disciplinc which was brought to iicar on tnc question, that in this Housc crcrv Dcmocratic mcmbcr, with but two indiridnal mcmhcrs, votcd liually for annexation. and tliosc two werc iinmcdiatclv Cxnclled from thc nartv. And, strange as posterity may vicw it, though evcry Whig nicnibcr from thc frcc Statcs votcd against it, yct it rcccivcdj by Dcmocratic votcs in this Housc, a largcr jnajonty in tlic frce Statcs man in tne slave Iiolding huitcs of this L nion. It is true, that ot tliat occasion I said in this Housc, that I considerbd that, by thc laws of nauons, an annexation ot lexas by us was ta- King on us a state ot warwilh Me.ico,m which Texas was thcn iuvolved ; and I think so still. But though a treaty oficnsive and dcfen'ive (to which annexation is tantamount) dccs.in law, involvc this concequcnce. yet it is compc- iciu ior two nations mutually to consnler and trcat it othcrwisc, in a particular case, if they plcasc. This Mcxi',a and this govcrnnicnt did, aftcr nnncxation toofe plaoc. In thc nianifcsto of Parcdes, fnnblislicd in thc Union of thc 4th of May, 1S4G,) he says: " I havc no right to declarc wnr, it is for thc Congrcss of the nation," and then fully stating that no aggre.ssion would be made by Mexico, but to rcpcl forcc with force. On the othcr hand, the Prcsidcnt of thc L'nitcd States, in his nicrsage of Deccmber. nfter annexation, conuratulates the countrv on that as a ncacea- blc and lloodlcss a quisitinn, and deelarcs we. arc still at pcacc J hus both nations rcganlcd themselves as not in a state of war. Now, sir, I know of but two ways in which nations can scttle disputcd boundarics : one is by netotia tion, thc othcr by thvrtcord. If rnc naiion has a claim on tcrritory claimed and porsesscd by another, it may be and should be arranged by by ncgotiation ; but if not so done, it may hc taken po?ession of by force of arms: and this bt icar. When, thcrcforc, thc Prcsidcnt r.r dcrcd foniblc posscs:on to be takcn of thc country west of thc Ilio Grande, by thc army, it was a countrv, not only claimed bv Mexico. but thcn entirely in her iosscssion, through thc whole lcngth of thc vallcy, on both sidcs of thc river, and occupied with towns nnd military posts on the east side is wcll as thc west, as is (iistinctly acknowledged cven in thc vcry or ders issued by Gcn. Tajlor. This was an o pcn act of war, bythe Pre?ident,unauthorized by the Constitution, until a dcclaration of war by Congrcss, which has not been made. It is said, that by saying, this' war was com menced by the unconstitutional actof Ihe Prcs idcnt, we hold the war itself unconstitutional. and so condemn all who engagc in it. Tliat, sir, is entirely an unfoundcd conclusion. Tho' the Constitution confincs thc powcr to declarc war to Congrcss, yet the Presidcnt may, by thc abuse of his powcr, involvc us in war at a ny timc ; yct that would not deprivc thc pco ple of this country of the right of sustaining the country in the war, though thus brought upon it. Supjtose the Presidcnt should treat a foreign minister with contcmpt, and dismiss him with disgrace, and refusc to makc any ex cuse or apology to the country he represented, and thereupon that country should declarc war; must not our country be sustaincd and dcfended, bccause the warwasproduccd bythe actof the Prcsidcnt? Xcithcr is the Fnsi- dcnt any morc excusable for commcncing a war bcfore it is dcclared by Congrcss, because therc may be good and sufficicnt gronnd for war, any more than a shcriff is justificd in hanjring a murdercr, howcvcr gnilty, belorc hc has bccn regularly tried anif condemned by thc court and jury. If, thcreforc, we hada ca'alogue of grievances against England, which wojhl well justify a war.yetthe Prcsidcnt can not thcrci'oro be justified in setting up some pretended claim to land, and scnd our army to lay seigc to Quebcc, (bccause that would be waging war without its bcing declarcd byJ!Jon trress: and vetthat war.thouchsoconunenccd, -should not subject this country to connuest, & our pcople fce dcnied tne ngnt ot uciencc, when England thereupon invaded us. Indeed, a wax.m!ibt be entirelr iustifuble to another .nation, and yct the Prcsidcnt bc subject to im- peachment for having commence it, without au thority. Henec, all that cntalogue of grievan- ccs committcij an thc part of Mexico, put forth by tho Prcsident in his mcssage, after hc com-' menced the war, as excuses and causes lor tho war, cven if they were foandcd in truth, as they werc not, was but an attenipt to rouse thei angry passions of this pcople asainst Mexico. and divert altenlionfrom his own unanthorizcr uunuuei. iiibu parauox tuer mvolve.
