'IK- . on" 'oi ,i IUatahokos, Oct. 20, 1S37. The Indians continue their savage depredations in the upper country. We are assured that they go on slaugh tering cattle, and carrying away every sort of property they can had, murdering tne unnappy wertcnes wno one to Tesist them, impelled oy tne instinctive ana launatw desire of preserving a property, the fruit of so much is. and so many privations. We fervently hope that act.-- "which at present are only stamped with the character of robbery and murderous outrage, may not. at no di.- tant dtv, assume an aspect which, will awaken the atten tion of those who now look on them with cold indifference doubtless bequiise they themselves are be'ond the read of their fatal effects." Within a year the savages huvi destrored the large stock of agricultural property whict the inhabitants of our towns had created at the cxpcnsi of so many years of labour, and which composed ncarh - the whole of their wealth.

n f y cUmaie aaest prepi&ms for agricultural pursuits, justifies the assertion that Texas is, for her popula- tion, a nation of equal resources with any other on the globe The undersigned, therefore, feels con- fident that the honorable the secretary of state will at once perceive that the people of Texas, in as- signing their affection for the people of the United States as their principal reason for desiring annex- ation, are amply provided with all (he resources to become of themselves a powerful nation. Thus, then, it is that Texas, in seeking to place herself among the slates of the Union, is prompted mainly by a filial reverence for the constitution and the people of the United States. Shc has no ex- pectation of an invasion, much L- of a reeonqucst. at the hands of Mexico. The humiliating defeat and capture of General Santa Anna at San J.tcinlo is too fresh upon the memories of her soldiery to justify the indulgence of any such apprehensions. Nor does she seek annexation ...

annexation of Texas would bean act of free will and choice on the part of tho -government and people, who own," Jind actually occupy the very territory proposed to be trans- ferred, while the latter would seem to have been the re- sult of an arbitrary right on the part of the metropolitan governments to dispose of the territorial possessions ce- ded by ihem, without regard to the wishes of the inhabi- tants residing thereon After the assurance of the honorable Mr. Forsyth, that n sense of duty and a reverence for consistency, left his government no alternative in leading the way in recogni- sing the independence of Texas, the undersigned confess- es some surprise at the intimation of Mr. Forsyth, that the circumstance of her having been first recognized by the United States, should in any manner influence the foreign intercourse of Texas. However nuch the government of Texas may be disposed to encourage the most frien.lh ralations with the goveru.nent of the United States, the under...
