Since the receipt by this G'orerument of the proposals for the annexation of Texas to the American Union we have with a sincere wish to approve bestowed upon them all the con- sideration which our limited resources could supply. It is certainly a great aad deeply im- portant subject the most so indeed that can engage the attention and employ the action of a free people. It involves the mode of self- government and fixes the basis on which that right is to be exercised. It presents the ques- tion of separate existence and sovereignty or of union and equal fortunes with the Ameri- can confederacy the question of the largest attainable amount of civil and religious free dom under these two systems of government. All who know us are nware-that whilst we have viewed the reunion of the two ...
