Monday january 11, 1836. The u. States and France. Or. Clay Rose and a Aid it must be obvious to every observer of passing Sven 8, that our affairs with France Are becoming everyday More and More serious in their character and Are rapidly tending to a crisis. Mutual irritations Are daily occurring from the Anima versions of the Public press and among individuals in and out of office in both countries and a state of feeling greatly to be depreciated if we Are to preserve the relations of peace must certainly be to consequence. According to the theory of our Constitution our diplomatic concerns with foreign countries Are entrusted to the president of the United states until they reach a certain Point involving the question of peace or War and then Congress to determine on that momentous question. In other words the president conducts our foreign Intercourse Congress alone can change that Intercourse from a peaceable Toa belligerent one. This right to de Cid the question of War carries along with it the right to know whatever has passed Between our own executive and the government of any foreign Power. No matter what May be the nature of the correspondence whether official or not whether formal or informal Congress has the right to any Ond All information whatever which May be in the Possession of the other Branch of Tho government. No senator Here could have failed to have been acquainted with the fact that the contents of a most important despatch or document has been discussed and a most important overture canvassed in the different newspapers in a Privato Ond political circles by every body in fact knows what has taken place sex Cepl the Congress of the uni the papers Friendly to the administration indeed the whole Circle of the Amer can press Are in Possession of the contents of a paper which this body has not been yet allowed to see and i have one journal a Southern administration journal before me which states a new and important fact in reference to it. I have said that our situation with France grows every Day More embarrassing the aspect of our relations with her mope dark and Thrett Lening. I could therefore longer delay in making the following motion. I should have done so before hut for prevalent Rumor that Tho president would soon make a communication to Congress which would do away Tho necessity of the resolutions whih i now submit by laying before Congress the information which if the Oli oct of my motion. He has not however Dune so and probably will not without Call from the Senate. Or.

These terms arc such that government has already been officially informed cannot be complied with and if persisted in they must be considered a deliberate refusal on he part of to fulfil engagements binding by the Laws of nations and held sacred by the whole civilized world.
