The day before the salt and water are put together put on a pot of pure water into which put clean wood ashes and boil till they produce a good ley that feels a little slippe- ry between the thumb and finger; put this ley away till the nextday to settle; it will then look like pure water.

3 '""" PeS6SgaSP&;- rw cannot be otherwise than pacific. Foreign Powers should therefore look on the annexation of Texas to the United States not as the conquest of a nation seeking to extend her dominions by arras and violence but as the peaceful acquisition of a territory once her own by adding another member to oar confederation with the consent of lhat member thfreby diminishing the chances of war and opening to them new and ever increasing markets for their products. To Texas the reunion is important because the strong protecting arm of our government would be extended ver her and the vast resources of her fertile soil and genial climate would be speedily developed ; while the safety of New Orleans and of our whole southwestern frontier against hostile aggression as well as the interests of the whole Union would be promoted by it. In the earlier stages of our national existence the opin- ion prevailed with some that our system of confederattd States could not operate succes...
