He then Stostad the original report of the committee on foreign Rei asians uie Resolution introduced by or. Cuaa-1x0, toe amendment thereto proposed % or Tuo Epsom and his own amendment As it has heretofore been Given in our previous report the ground said or. A on it which my colleague or. Cushine moved his rss Clotida calling fire a report from the committee on foreign a Biro was that the cot Amiree requested to be a charged from ail the medi ortals and resolutions ref Kiwi to them on the suit wet of Texas without having taken them into Coni Srafion at All and he dissenting from this request and the a miam Tiee not Bavin taken one of those papers into consider Avion at ail he ails thus deprived of the oppo Toni of presenting a counter report a desirous of doing. A will a Reco it elected Whan my colleague offered his Resolution for a recommitment and debate had Arisen on the question of its adoption 1 asked whether the committee had considered toe multitude of ammo rips and petitions and the resolutions of state Legislatures whih had been referred to them. I was answered by one member of that committee who denied my Rig to to ask such a question and said that a the would not be Catech ised by thinking this a very extraordinary answer to an in a Lutiny which f Tao Obi Nussli Ai i titled to me 1 applied to toe Chunnan of the combo Yuee to know whether he endorsed that position and i understood him to say that he did go with that gentleman to la be whole extent and further that he considered it As dishes fretful to a committee for any member of toe House to ask if it had performed the duly assigned to it by toe House. This answer i considered quite As extraordinary As other subsequently not or member of the apparently to hold himself Respo stole for the position Tuben by his colleague of the committee frankly dead died that he for himself . Ai Ishwer the question Al he had not looked into one of the papers. This reply was at least As extraordinary to me As that o f his colleague and m ext Cao a Dinar that i repeated his words and asked a Cwb at not one of toe mtg and he reiterated the reply a no not then i think the Faa iraqi of the committee ceasing to Pfaue that per titular inquiry assigned the reasons Why he should Coppom toe recommit edit confining however his remarks principally to the Amend rent of toe gentlemen from South Carolina or. Tom sox and intimating to him that to Gen Tiemen. going counter to his. .ownv.iewf,. Thereby we filing toe apprehension that the Eha Tynan con Curry with toe gentleman from South. Pm oui. In. His id Timpte , the animation of Texas to the Union which he Char him with having retarded instead of forwarding by pc Cipi Tating Ttoe of the to dependence of Texas As a Sovereign state. The Henrian thought toe amendment i Tiad offered unworthy of any answer. It de dared. That the Power of annexation to this Union of the people of any other stale was a Power not delegated by the people of the tinted state to Congress or any other authority of this government but Recaen to the people. This was the first of the two be solutions which d. Offered. The thought it not Worth his while to answer Toat at All. He said there had been some doubts on the question he cited a the costs of Loit Istona and Florida,.and added that some Parsons thought thers was a great distinction Between the admission. Of those countries and the admission of Texas but that a never bad been Able to see any from a big hit May be info fed that he is himself ready for the annexation As soon As Theno sent of Congeta Canche obtained. It is not my purpose at this time to enter up that discussion hut i shall now sons wer some o be Coati on o f the honorable chairman a to the manner in which toe resolutions and memorials were referred of Bis committee and the pre ice diff act Only which., they were we upon the table. He referred me to a vots if the House on toe if Foo of december when by a majority of 127 to 98, toe memorials at that ii mip before this House were Ord red to be Laid upon the to Hie and be inferred fimm this vote the solemn determination of toe House Tomt All Mimp iils on that subject should be Laid Ltd the table in like manner and that no further action of tie House should be had in regard to to Cip i admitted toe fact of toe stated that it had been taken at toe motion Garit Tsann from Virginia or. Wish whom i do Nof new to unusual with him. I refer Toleat Nown it a it. The sex Pic on of the Biori Ingomar y esterday he came Over to my Seal and desired Mojin Obb Heja Foum not be in toe Hoo trois morn Iulg to i As to his least a for Inak ing Chat Mot Ioil. A said it had bean indeed at Bis motion Tost the Reshit iii passed but that it had not been his intention that toe Fey iii of Ihssen resolutions on the Tawe should be the final set Ion of the Hooee Titpon them. With Legal to Thepe Titioka against slavery As to which an act of was Pas by Thia House 00 the Follst of de oember is vote had beep Given on the ground that those bods and others to an equal or forester Smunt a fess ted by my colleagues should be reported to a select committee. The first objection to this was made by the chairman of the committee on foreign affairs who claimed the jurisdiction of this us Lect to himself. He was chairman of the committee on foreign affairs and As such he insisted on having toe consideration of the memorials. I presume he thought Toat the matter they related to was of immense immense importance ind not one to be passed Over in silence. This appears from the fact of his claiming the right that they should be referred to himself and his own committee. Sir i great . For that come Tittle it Asido the most important of All the standing committees of this House not excepting the committee of w sys and Means up toe committee on elections and i entertain great respect for All the members of the committee. But still sir not exactly the committee to which i should have preferred to have these papers refer Rekand for two reasons the committee in two senses is a Paity committee and this is a questioning two senses of a party nature. For first it Isa sectional question a question of the North and toe South tour bang deep abiding mid most important interests and in that it of View a.nisjo9 of the com mite represents a minority of the. People of the United states. It is a committee consisting of five representatives from slave holding states and four from states non Siave holding a distinction in the committee directly the reverse of that of the interests represented by them. A minority of the people of the United 8ta tos is represent try by a of that committee and this on a question vital to their interest. In the next Poe it is a question of deep party concern As to the administration and the opposition parties of the country at this time and the committee con slats of six Frienda of toe present administration and Only pc at most three of the opposition More probably a tight by of two to seven in Faver of the . Now Toat this is a question Between toe free and the Siave Bolding states i believe no Man can have Kny doubt at All if he has an inspection of the yeas and nays on any one of the questions which distinguish the two Wii immediately satisfy him. That it is a question peculiarly interesting to toe present which is understood avowedly Boa Stingly and openly to the administration of a Northern Man. With Southern principles., there be it doubt. This is the combination in the committee a Section Al combination of of the slave holding against the free states and an administration combination of a Northern administration with Southern principles. Sir of those soot Oera principles affecting Northern men we have duly demonstration in this House to which h is unnecessary for me to refer. But Tow it. Is. This , the most important in the House is composed first with regard to sectional questions of a majority of members representing a minority of toe people and secondly of to toe Questi it Tii of administration and tip position it is a committee consisting of two thirds adminis station men and Iete than one third of Opp now i will not ask Rinat is the relative strength of this administration and its opponents in the people of the United states. We Are ree riving daily proofs of that. I who not ask what is. The relative p to portion in. This Hou 8e. Of Admi stration and opposition men we had yesterday of an exceeding to trifling question a demonstration of what that was when the vote stood 99 to 99, and was made 99 to 100 Only by the casting vote of speaker. Now of a Honse thus Conat toted Here is a committee on subjects of the deepest interest to the country to the whole country and to every part of it ii which tax Ami a Kay for seven members be administration men and toe residue belong to toe opposition. I say then that this committee is not the committee to Whir ii i by preference abound have referred those petitions and memorials which had been committed to me that i might present them to the House and might do All that was in my Power to do Justice to the Memoria lists. Observe there was then 00. Resolution presented from any state legislature but on my motion to refer the memorials to a select committee the chairman of the committee on fore. Aff i a. Seized upon , .a.n.d. Insisted that Hia committee most have them a committee stating of five Alave holders and four freemen and Alx and a half supporters of the administration of toe Northern Man with Southern principles. This was the committee that jurisdiction Over this All at oiling question. The first thought of the Pealer was that a motion to refer to a standing committee of the hone took precedence of s motion for a select commit tree i do not mention ibis to complain of it at All. A debate arose and the consideration of the subject was postponed. However it seems that a Ven Toat did not answer. Otiss Rve that the famous Resolution of toe 21st december Palton s gag a had not then been been passed by the House. No res Littion bad then been adapted by a Faich toe whole Mase of the will wants and prayers of tie of the United states. W us str uck away. 1 then presented another petition and made the by me motion ii that it be referred to a elect tree the chairman of the Manittee on foreign affairs immediately started up and moved that it be referred to that committee and it was done. The petitions Liavine been taken up next Day a motion was then or. Wish to Lay them an the table and i find fro i the journal that tiie v0 Testo of 127 to 68. Then a few Days after came the general Resolution of the 21st december requiring Chat Alt a memorials petitions and papers referring to Slavey and the slave Trade be Laid upon the table without Reading printing or further action of toe How ice and from that time for two or three months toe same Resolution Bevelled every petition and memorial in which toe name of Texas was concerned. The House Minoi have forgotten that whenever a motion was made for a Selert Minu Pittee there never failed adme voice to be heal a 0.r, if the a. Did the speaker Coha Derod it a. A matter of course constructively that a motion was Mode to Lay the papera on the table and Zajd on the table they were. But on the 14th of february i find an entry on the journal stating that or. Heman Allen presented the following Lee tons of the Leguil Lufe of the Susce of Vermont a tax ask Saab by Vbk a at trash a to. The committee to whom were referred nume Rotia petitions of citizens in All parts of the state praying that our Sena tors in Congress be instructed and our representatives requested to be Irir influence to prevent the annexation by thar body of Texas to the United 818108, and calling on the general Assembly of Vermont it Asif to protest a a inst believed assumptions of Power on the part of the government with whih the Constitution did not clothe that body. Popular approbation added to the fact that a oae acquisition were necessary to the Safe and convenient use by our fellow citizens of Large sections four country contiguous to them prevented at the time any Strong opposition to those acts of Purchase or any examination of a serious Cuba Zacter into toe authority by which they were done. But leaving out of what is too Ghl to be Consin Tentio Nal inhibition of the annexation of Texas to the Union there Are other objections which seem insurmountable to the committee. The state it of Mexico of which Texas was one of the Confederate province a and from which it has been but lately torn by violence had at opted and practically carried out in her political Orga Arzadon sentiments that it seems to the committee lie at the foundation of All just government and which Are thus happily set Forth in the Constitution of this state a l men Are bom equally free and Independent and certain natural inherent Andina Eshk rights among Shiek Are the enjoying and defending of life and Liberty requiring Patse Tsing and prot Ewing property and pursuing and of tending of dress aim safety. Under the a Uene of hese Prin Ellsi Mexico in a manner that won for her aug Obial i feet the Elivd Ixba world had honorable abolished the system of slavery that atta.<ed to her during her col onial depends nce on tha k tag Dom of Ain. Texas on the other hand no Doonar had separated from Mexico and a sued an Independent position than Ahe showed an utter disregard of these principles Aad of the just respect of the great body of Christian nations by incorporating indissolubly with her political system the enslavement the unconditional and perpetual Eoa Lave ment of a part of the human family of that part too who it seems to your committee have already wept Long Enos Over the wrongs and afflictions they have Alfrred from their Brethren. Against every form of oppression the pc ple of Vermont have at All times borne honorable testimony. In their Constitution they have published to the world their Ever lasting opposition to slavery even Down to the minutest and least of its to . It a oui then be noon existent in Vermont it would prove that she had somewhat fooled in the Fervour of her love for Liberty of honed she consent to be drawn into closer and fraternal Bonds with people who beyond any yet known in Modem times have made the most deliberate and heartless assault on human toe Sepulv lie of Texas who a Jato of of ump amp i to which tha said minister invites toe Stten lion of of state and alleged in the said note petitions asked for that whih this House had no constitutional Power to Grant on twa ground he moved to Lay them pm the Tawe to laugh he should himself have preferred that they should not have been even received. They Tereve a tved however against his will Aad then is the Meb sure he next Piezon he moved to May them on the tame. A had not such a View however As to these Moor trials against the to news on of Texas bees we he did opt spider the House As perfectly competent and at Faherty to act upon them and his motion to Lay them 00 the table was intended Only As a postponement of them for a Tibie that they might be after wards taken up and acted upon. I make these explanations for Hon and with satire set infection on Ray part. And this shows that the a Asumpta on of the Shairry Aaili As to the intent of the House in laying these papers an the tsi was St least not toe Inte Teni toe mover of tire Resmon Tom and my inf Renoe is that the House did not int Sun so neither. But it is necessary to refer a Little further to the action of the House on those petitions and memorial which had then been presented to the House to what was theh done in regard to them by this House and particularly by the chairman of the committee on foreign a flairs. The journal of toe House., on the 12lh of december shows the following entry a emr. J. Q. Adas presented a remonstrance of Nancy Ripley and 237 o ther women of Plymouth in the state of the same ii it any Way being done and to whom Wero also re Larred. Numero is Mei Mials from various parts of the state praying this honorable body to adopt Tesola Toibb deeds ring first. That Congress has toe constitutional Power to abolish slavery and the slave Trade in tha District Coumbis second. That it has the Power to abolish them in the several territories of the Union where they exist third. That it has the Roesti Tut ional Power to prohibit the slave Trade Between toe several states of toe Union and fourth. That in regard to All those particulars Congress night immediately to exercise that Power and to whom were also referred numerous petitions toy ing this honorable body to protest against the Mission of any new state into this Union whose Constitution tolerates Domestic Ala very have had the same under con moderation and beg leave to report As follows the Manittee have not been ensued to find in the Len Sti edtion of the United Stetes Ariy provision delegating to Congress Power to incorporate with our Tetory a Separ ate and Independent state. Such is Texas. It is True Congress possesses Power to admit into toe Union a new states a but it is believed they must be those and Only those whose forma of government Are authorized wid approx Vii by the legislative Sanction of that body. The Purchase of Louisiana and Florida and the annexation of them to toe territory of the government were it is not a reason is Given. It expresses simply the feelings of the petitioners. Was it to Load the Sfa Oulder of the committee on foreign affairs with Loo much labor and toil to require them to look into thu met Aorist a but Tea did not Lodi into it. They never have read it i presume there is not a member of that committe that knew of its existence till this moment they hear of it now for toe first time still it a referred to the committee on foreign afle fire and a standing Rale of this hours declares that the committe shall trite it into the reference was made on the 26th of March. Did they take it into consideration no sir. The gentleman from South Carolina has answered that question. He say s that he never looked into one of these memorials and he Speaks no doubt for the whole committee. H s does not like his colleague or. D s of Sooza declare that he will not be Catech ised no be comes out fairly and says 1 never did look into one of them. The committee therefore from the 26th of March to this time nearly three months never looked into that petition. Well sir six weeks la term i cannot quote the journal because it has not been delivered to us�?1 applied for it and was told that the Bian script was at the Printer a or Cabrej Leaf Here Rose and inquired of the Chstr wheat Terlow Mon King hour had not expire Dot the chair announced that the morning hour half 1ex-Pired, whereupon or. Abas resumed his seat. Freedom. is one other re Ason Agai nil this. Measure that the committee ought not to Omi presenting to your honorable body. Its moot by usurious advocates urge it not because our population too Crowdell for our present Bounds justly fall for others More extended not because it it is necessary to the Unin cambered Safe and profitable use and enjoyment of All the resources and advantages of any part of the territory we now possess hut for the avowed of inject of adding to Andron fitting the slave holding influence in the manage ment of the government Phe anarchy and disorder that now prevail in the scout he the apparent overthrow of late of her own constitutional and Legal barriers erected for the Security of the citizens and the seeming want of Power in her proper authorities to re establish them the Ilie Gat out rages which her own citizens As Well As those from the face states have suffered for the. St two or three y sars in the South and to which it would appear up to this time they Are exposed outrages that so far As your committee have the Means of information have in Many instances been provoked by an honorable advocacy of Liberty and a condemnation of slavery not Leas honorable or from a Auspicio that the one was honoured and the other detested outrages that have been passed by unpunished and unnoticed by toe proper tribunals where Toey Hava been perpetrated these and other fearful sacrifices of important interests by the North demanded by the South to be offered up of the Security of her Peculiar institution the surrender that she asks from us of the Freedom of speech the Liberty of the press the right of petition Sll these United inspire your committee with a Welt founded apprehension that the additional weight which the annexation of Texas to the United states would give to the slave holding interest in our political would in All probability soon Lead either to a dial lotion of the Union or to the political degradation of the free states and eventual by to the entire overthrow of their common liberties wherefore the committee recommend the adoption by the general Assembly of the following resolutions. W. R. Ranney Milton Brown for is Mirtee. 1. Res Obed by the Senate and Horn of representatives thai our Ifon atari in congre.88. Life .iii�t.ructed, a us our representatives requested to use their influence in that body to prevent the annexation of Texas to toe Union. 2. Resolved that representing a we do the people of Vermont we do hereby in their name solemnly protest against such annexation in any a atm. 3. Revoked that As the representatives of the people of Vermont we do solemnly protest against the admission into this Union of any state whose Constitution tolerates slavery. 4. that Congress have full Power by the Constitution to Abo Torii slavery and the slave Trade in the Dis Triet of Columbia and in the territories of the United states. 5. Resolved that Congress has tiie constitutional Power to prohibit the Trade Between the several states of Thia Union and to make Auch Laws a shall effectually prohibit such trader 6. Resolved that our senators in Congress be instructed and our a read natives requested to present the foregoing report and Reathi Toita to their respective houses in Congress and use their influence to carry the Zame speedily into effect. 7. Resolved that the governor of Thia state be requested to transmit a copy of the foregoing report sind resolutions to the Preaye tit of the United states to the executives of the several states and to Eaph of our senators and representatives in then comes the authentication of the resolutions at massed by both houses of the legislature of the state of Vav on it is worthy of remark How these resolutions were disposed off. This be it remembered was the first application from one of the so acre Ign St ales. It was. Prested nearly two months after the gag and the entry on the journal states Itiat the resolutions were Laid on the table under the Resolution of the House on the 2 Tat of december. It declares a that All petitions memorials and papers touching the abolition of slavery or the buying Selling or transferring of slaves in any state dial Rich or territory of the United states be Laid upon the table without being debated printed read or referred and that no further action whatever shall be had yet Here Are the Resolution a printed yes printed on the journal of this House and then it is said that they were Laid on the table under this Resolution which declares that they should not be printed. Why what does the Jour at mean we had it Over and Over again that no Resolution or paper on this subject shall be printed. Yet Here the res Olat Loiis Are prof died and it is declared that they Are Laid on the table under that Resolution. Now if the resolutions might be printed Why might they not to debated Why not read Why might not the House act on theral is it that there is something so odious so detest we in that Resolution that when the speaker came to determine How the journal of Toat Day should be tade up he dared not carry it into Effort was it that to did not hire to insult wednesday israe wok 1888. Or Adams said that he was yesterday Orving upon the course of the House m regard to the petitions of the people and toe joint resolutions of several state la Latores in relation to Toad annexation of Texas to the Union. He had stated what had been the it Ion of the House in regard to the first memorials presented by himself and the course pursued with raid to them and those which followed by the chairman of the committee on foreign of lira when he or. A Dahs Hail moved to refer them to a select committee. Me had also referred to the succession of legislative resolutions from the due Ferent states that bad sent them to that House upon this subject and which till some time in the month of March 1838, successively had been ordered to lie on the table. Among these were the resolutions of the legislature of Rhode. Laland. He mentioned these particularly because or.
