TELEQRAPJI. :ism ance. TiThe "government of the United States, as a government, is, prohibited by the laws and policyt&Fv nations, from inter- fering in the internal , conflicts of tt foreign country, whatever be the merits of the con- troversy, ,If, therefore, they are to receive anyiassislance from the people of the Unit- ed States, it must be from them as indivi- duals. - It is natural that the people of Te- xas should turn their, eyes towards this country in'their hour'of trial and danger.

Adams, In'the disease- of the body politic, us. in tho.se of theiiumnn system,- there is a crisis at. which there begins an approach ,to a fa- vorable of an unfavorable issue. Wheiher in the convulsions of , the Mexican republic that crisis has arrived, I leave those to de- cide who are better versed than I am in the constitution of that people. Cprtain it is, however, that if it has arrived,- every thing indicates the most disastrous 'termination.

What kind of liberty is that which a set of men have the right to take away at pleasure, by making new governments for us ? If it be not ab- surd to call it liberty, it is but the liberty which the slave enjoys on a holiday a liber- ty which his master may take fiora him at a word. It was against this right, to have something to say and do in the making of the governments and laws under which we live, that Great Britain aimed a blow, when she asserted in parliament, the light to go- vern the colonies in all cases whatsoever.
