But he would to withdraw his motion for if moment Lohl Low of reports being made. Tho committees were then called upon for reports and a number of reports were made from Dif Ferent committees. After inc committees had All been called upon or. Fillmore asked if it would now be in order to take up and consider his Resolution Tho Clair remarked that or. Howard s proposition being a report of a commit the was first in order. Or. Tillmore then moved to suspend the rules for the purpose of enabling Hirn to offer his Resolution. Lost. Tho Resolution reported by or. Howard from the commit the on foreign a fluids was alien taken ii i. As fid lows a cosh cd that the president of the United states 1 0 requested to communicate to this House As far us the same May be consistent with the Public interest All Tho information in either of the depart cents respecting the capture by the United states Sloop of War talc he a of Tho mexican vessel of War the Jeneral Urrea and its subsequent restoration by the United Stales to the mexican government. Or. Adams moved to Amend the Resolution by adding thereto the following Quot and also Copie iof All instructions to the officers of the government of the United states and All Cor Respondence with them with the governors of any of the states and with the governments and of eels of Mexico and of great Brit am concerning the Preservati i of the neutrality of the United states in the civil wars and insurrections-4u Mexico and in any of the British provinces nor Leof the United states since the year 1829, and particularly Ofa letter from the late president of the United slates to the Secretary of the territory of Arkansas dated on or about 10th december 1836.&Quot or. Fillmore then moved to Amend the Amend Keiit by adding thereto the billowing Quot and that the president be requested to Chinmu in cat to this House any additional information in his Possession of acts endangering the amicable re actions Between this government and that of great Ilni Ain either by the subjects of great Britain or by our own citizens on the Canadian Frontier and what Nicas arcs have been adopted by the exc Cutic a to preserve our neutrality with said or. Fill Yuriv in support of this amendment Leniar ked that the House were probably Awuzie lha ther had been and now was a great excitement existing on the Niagara Frontier and that Liere had been movements in Buffalo in reference to the revolution now raging in Canada. They were also probably aware that an armament had been filled out mostly by Anie Naii citizens w hich had made a stand upon Navy Island which is within British Ler Mitory in Niagara River Twenty Miles from Buffalo and two or three in los above the Falls the lows St Point at which a crossing can be effected safely from the main Shore. A he line Between Navy Island which is Well fortified and grand Island which is in the territory of the i filed slates. Or. Fillmore understood from letters and papers of very late dates then Lefore him that there were a iou Navy Island sumo 1,500 men who Aro undergoing a course of military discipline. He had let ters to the 30ih ult. Advising him that a Small Steamboat called the Caroline had been taken Down the River from Buffalo to run As a ferry boat from the american Shore to Navy Island. It seemed that on the 29th an armed Force come from Tho British Side in Canada and attacked this Steamboat which had Iwen running through inc Day and which was then lying within the United slates Linos killing some and wounding others then Sii iring the boat on fire and bending it Over the Falls and us some accounts alleged Wilh the wounded still remaining on Board. And hero or. Fillmore read extracts from Tho letters which he averred were from the very and Resika visible sources confirming his Sla lenient As to these incidents. Having done which he observed that his object now was to ascertain if Tho executive had any information upon the subject. Or. Howard said that this Resolution had Keri ice sorted by a committee. It Wos not in his i Ower to accept or us Seul to any amendment a re Mark w hich he would make in relation us Well to the amendment offered by or. Adams As to that proposed by or. I Ellmore. Tho fuel is indisputably True that the position of affairs upon the Canada Iro Vitier w As full of interest Anu even of jeopardy to relations existing Lieuween this government and that of great Britain. This he should not Controvert. But the remark had icon Mado by or. Fillmore and or. Howard believed Alto by or. Adams in Ouei ing their res Mclive that this bag lion was on theve of War with great Britain. He had regretted to hear this remark. He tim Ltd it was not Correct. So far As document go to How thu intentions and indeed Tho efforts of both governments Thoy had been and Atill were directed to Tho Piene Valion of peace and the Security or Neutral ii. He trusted that those a eight ii uns would not to changed and that those Felt Oft would be continued und that if Horo w Ere no Laws now in exist Oncu to up vent broached of neural ii on to bal part of our i Timeus that such Luw would be Oil acied. He hoped we were of thu Ove of no such War. He believed to were Nul but that on Llie Cork tray the country was still preserving and incl Nuj to pres Erve the nost lofty grounds in a he preservation of neutrality. He knew of no differences exist log Between this government and great Britain Only that arising out of like position of Ibe northeastern Boundary Guostini. Pm Irb Ajmo said or. H. This May be la o i get by some to to a favourable Opportunity to press that subject upon great Britain but it was not so in Bis judgement. Or. H. Again averred that he thought the country far from any danger Ofa War Wilh great Britain and he trusted a Largo majority of the House agreed with him in this opinion. He remarked that the subject had been referred to a committee foreign affairs which would give it a serious and anxious consideration. At to Tho inquiry proposed by the gentleman from new y Ork or. Fillmore in regard to the recent events upon the Niagara Frontier they were no very recent Thulmar. H. Doubted if any official information can have been received with regard to them Alai events he was for keeping the information asked for from the executive in relation to this sublet and that regarding the mexican question distinct and separate. He was for keeping each bal itself. He was opposed to both the amendment proposed. Or. Adams regretted that Tho chairman of the come Mitlee on foreign affairs had thought it Neces sary to oppose the adopting of his amendment and thai proposed by the gentleman from new without intending to misrepresent him the gentle Man or. A had imputed to him language to had not used. He had not said that he thought the country on Tho eve of War with great Britain. He had said that he viewed the nation in imminent danger of such a War which was Quito a Ole statement and he hoped that what the House would now do and what Tho executive would also do in consequence of the proposed action of the House would Avert that danger. The gentleman from Maryland had said that he had now no control Orel he Resock Tjon he had re ported from the committee on foreign affairs and that he was not authorized to assent to the proposed amendments. That or. A. Said was undoubtedly True but it was also As True that he was not authorized by that committee to oppose such amendments. He opposed them if at All upon his own personal and individual responsibility and it was upon that ground that be or. A was replying to his objections against amendments. The committee on foreign affairs has no More dissented from these amendment a than they have assented to them. It was therefore to be regretted that such opposition had been made to them by the chairman of that committee and the More because the gentleman from the new or. A and . A., who had of red them do not belong to thai majority in the House which upon every Occa son Arv expected to Quot toe the snark Quot there. Sir scid or. Awe Are Likely soon to be called upon to Quot Tuo a Quot in matters upon which i Hope in god we May not be Devido by party lines. We Are Nea Ruig i i i a things when it Wal hardly d it to reject upon important matters Begaii. Ii v do not come Filoiii a particular Side of this in july. I he question for us to consider now is whether these Amend meals of my Friend from new at myself Are proper in the present state of things to to adopted und not from what Quarter of the House they May come. The Resolution of the committee on foreign affairs alludes to a single act of hostility on the part of an officer of our own govern Niento against the mexican government acknowledge afterwards to have been such by the subsequent conduct of that officer. I wish and the gentleman from new wishes to give Ali tile further in this inquiry for information. We desire to Olivain from the president of the United states All the inform lion in his Possession As to the differences existing Between Mexico and this government and Between great Britain and this government information Wii Houi which the House cannot possibly act advisedly and effectively. To had he continued offered his pro a sit Ion before the Messas of the president had been transmitted to the House because he saw the necessity of obtaining All the information in Possession of the executive in relation to Tho differ noes existing Between this nation and Mexico on the one Side and great Britain on the other. The message had come in As a confirmation of the propriety and necessity of that step of Bis referring As the House would perceive it does As Well to our relations with Mexico As to those Wilh great Britain and touched upon our Northern As Well As Southern dangers. And now All he asked was that the representatives of the people should request of the pros Kropt of the United slates what is the actual situation of the court re what had been done what was proposed to be done in relation to in what Wai demanded on Tho one Side and what claimed on the other. He had hoped thai a proposition so reasonable would Havo been permitted to without opposition. Some Tihor Rule should in observed he remarked in matters so momentous Ihan Uoo the the divisions of let arty should be Bro nmn up upon quit icons like these and they who Are not a the Confidence of the executive should to permitted to have an Oppio Unity of doing heir Auty by their common country As Well As the chosen sect. The chairman of the committee on foreign affairs Cousin used or. Adams tells the gentleman fron new that if he will for the present purge his amendment of so much As relates to to Subj act matters already treated of by the president of the United states in the message just read to the House he would have Nookie Etier to h a a it now stands Ai the proper Hnie and Inadi Eliacil form. Now dues not that ent temm Lyme that if the number from new and a of were Lobregt this Quiry i would upon that remt my on wore then a Tomt a to pass the never Oono when it Amighi bring us our would of Ike be decl area out of it order were we to Miiko Yueh an at tempt and to w0 should by Pim off ii or is.

But for the members of this body Fen their cons do re icon ail the basis out irad Ion. This message continued or. Anisis is n very important ont. It men it Calls fur the expenditure of Money for Neil hots More to added to the millions already in wished in the Ali empt to Check Indian , Atuf a Pur Paic Rihr More deadly important he would Reu mrk thai Tho prevent in of any Indian hostilities. A Giust increase of the army wo�1d become necessary to carry out Tho suggestions of the president. He great an increas3 and How Large in expel fore could not Sny pro by Bly nil to Juis would be Koopu when the desired information shall come arts no the Quot executive. A a this Menge continued or. Adams says nothing on the so Jeci of any violation of neutrality on the Iii Nadu Side. Yet such a tilt if atom and one of the grossest Char Nicter had actually taken on that Side und Alf muted As it appears to a suede by the Uritis officer . Adams said he thought in Jiro Hable that this message was prepared before the information who ii had just been Laid before the House was received. A amp elder this be so or not this House i velt a Tho executive have a part to take in the Mattwa a highly responsible and important part a duty to perform in seeing that a strict Petit reality is observed on the part of this government and also that Tho neutrality be not violated on the other Side to the extent Ofa single hair without Emma log and insisting upon the most perfect and Jirik Amis faction. He hoped that if the chair Nan of film committee on foreign affairs does not Rem to self authorised to Nocedo to the proposed Amend Tenti of Hie Reso Luzion the House will feel other visa disposed and take such order in re Iarion to the a beet a will not postpone the consider fion of question ii to itt a portent until it shall be too late for any pro Etiel Good purpose>4.after making such a modification of hit Tsend ment As to Moking it consistent with the original Resolution or. Fillmore said he could How his proposition could possibly lend to Embarrass the action of the House upon the Resolution hollered by the Kirn Mittee in foreign affairs. It won certainly very easy for the president to dial Nguia Between the different kinds of for nation too get Tor by the different propositions. He bad trie4�r-cry other Way to bring his proposition before a him House and could not present it in any of in which i would secure its Immy n,exc9 that in which it now stood. For fit were As an Independent Resolution it would Lalie it place behind All othei3 now on the speakers to a a. Its great importance would not permit Bim to Eji pee it to such a risk und he had therefore offered it in the form of an amendment to the original it Olu lion of the committee on foreign affairs in which base he hoped it would pass. As to the expression which he had used in rela Ion to the disturbances on he Niagara Frontier that this country was on the eve of a War with great Britain perhaps it was too Strong an expression. But certainly All the facts demonstrated that there imminent danger of such a result. The citizens of the United states while in the Peao Fol Pursuit of their business had been attacked by an armed Force from a foreign nation and a portion of the militia of the country is even now ordered out to repel such hostility. He Well knew that the spirit of the people on the United slates Side of that Frontier would not permit them to stand tamely by and witness Ucb assaults. These wore fact vouched for by respectable citizens As True and an Bentic and be must ask if they were not such As to warrant the offering of such a proposition As he bad moved. It make do difference he contended whether one or one Hundred Miles of Tho territory of the United state has been invaded by the arms of a foreign nation the jurisdiction of this country is of extensive with the urn kit limits of her territory. Even if the vessel which was attacked had been carry ii munitions of War to the revolutionist on Navy is Lood she was Only liable he contended to be attack feed while within the British lines. As it was he a greed with the gentleman from Massachusetts or. Adams that there was scarcely a parallel to this act upon the pages of our history As a nation and it was to suppose an absolute impossibility for a moment to imagine Thot the people on that Frontier will Over in bit to the occurrence of such acts without complaint and redress. It was therefore in any View highly in 0rtant that the House should obtain All possible information upon a subject to important or. Ii Amer did not Risoto i Seuss the subject at length and should not have opened his lips bad not �entime0ta been exp eased which demanded some notice. It sounded strangely to his ears be hear gentlemen declaring upon that upor when any of of Ifird How eve i slight is made to choir moan ures that such opposition proceeds from a nudity of that House who Are always required the Hae Timi hark Puu every question that is Prea Niedt while they who make this complaint do not act at All from party motive and if not influenced by pm Ray feelings. Now he could easily Couo Eive that gentleman who really thought thus would be very pm to give utterance to such sentiments but be thoum Ihl Nethat they might expect to met with opposition from Tho other Side grounded up a motives More Purn and disinterested.
