ADVERTISING, USUAL PRICES. MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT, TO THE FIRST CONGRFSS OF THE REPUBLIC OF TEXAS. Fellow-Citizens of the Senate and of the House of Representatives ; Tin: assembling of the elect representatives of a free and sovereign people, within the late department of Texas, is an event that calls for the warmest gratulations of every patriot heart. But mutual felicitations alone, would be inadequate to express the high sentiments that .ought to pervade our bosoms on this solemn and interesting occasion. Holier and loftier feelings become us; for it is meet that we raise our thoughts and our thanksgivings to that omnipotent Being, who rules the Universe, directs the affairs of empires, and guides the destiny of all. Among the many revolutions that have varied the political condition of men, few h...

3 Bunton having been requested td communicate to the senate, that, the house awaited their reception, discharged that duty. Mr. Baker again impressed on the house the necessity of exercising all their efforts through the medium'of active commit tees, to promote the well being of the country; the present state of its finances; the difficulties resulting with contested elections; the present and hourly accruing exigencies of government; the difficulties of regular transmissions by post; the absence of a judiciary : in a word, all the discordant elements from which we propose to establish a social state of tilings, require that no time be lost. He would, without further preface, propose that the resolution relative to the appointment of committees, laid on the table, be now taken up, and acted upon. Carried.

diriary powers have not been perverted to any sinister purpose; to the damage of the country; to personal aggrandizement; or to the creation or advancementof a party; or to the success of a speculation ; I assert with a modest hut a firm and assured confidence. Soon after the battle of San Jacinto, the executive govern- ment commenced a treaty with the captive president of Mexico. The negotiation was protracted to the 14th of Majr, when two treaties, one open, the other secret, were executed between this government and the president Santa Anna. Copies of those treaties are herewith transmitted. Some stipulations of the treaty (regarding Ahe negociation as one) have been com- plied with, on the part of the Mexican president; and this go- vernment assayed to execute that engagement which relates to his transportation to Vera Cruz. The treaty was made in good faith, and was intended on the part of this government, to be faithfully executed. But a highly exasperated popular commo- tion,...

I franchise the votes of the volunteers. General Huston entered into a minute detail of the circumstances that lead to the as- sembling of the first consultation; commented on the powers vested in that body, and referred to the organic law, as the only existing one of the present day: denied the possession of plenary powers in the convention, as to its acts, and eloquently advo- cated the rights of the volunteers. Mr. Falvel briefly addressed the house and labored to es- tablish the illegality of the votes, on the informality of the re- turns; it was, however, understood from an excitement which prevailed, on a case supposed to be similar, which had occurred on the previous day in the senate, that the question was involv- ed, and bv arransrement. was permitted to proceed.

WAR SONG. They conic, they come, the ruthless band, To enforce the tyrants foul decree, 'To desolate this smiling land, The dwelling of the fair and free : Sons of the1 west, the hour has come Of victorjr or martyrdom. These fields our brows have oft bedew'd, As bloom'd the desert with our toil, Shall be in blood more deep cmbru'd, Ere thraldom stains the Texian soil : When bleach our bones on every plain, Then wolves luay greet Santa Anna's reign. When shall the aspiring traitor learn The cost of such a dreary sway Behold yoru warriors, few but stern, Who front the invader's broad army True as the rifle to its aim Each heart is to the cause they claim. On, gallant souls, where glory calls, And God and freedom be the cr)T ; Where one devoted patriot falls An hundred ruffian slaves shall die, T " And should they win one conquer'd rood, 'Tis with a slaughter'd legion strew'd. On, while heroic shades look down And view your kindred ranks with pride, Your sires who fought with Washingto...

ing avfew words in justice to Mr. Smith; that his claims upon this government were great; that to his own knowledge Mr. Smith had marched to the aid of his country's cause, leaving: a helpless and desolate family exposed to the pitiless storms of heaven, without house, home or provisions, or where to look for these necessary articles. He went farther to state, that Smith was growing old; that by the providence of God, he was de- prived of one of the greatest blessings; he alluded to the sense of hearing. For these reasons he did hope, for the honor of Texas, that he should, in the decline of life, have a comfortable home to spend the balance of his days. Mr. Cozine followed; he displayed in a pathetic manner, the age, the misfortunes, and the family of Mr. Smith. He then carried him in the army, where he spoke ably upon the dangers of the situation Mr. Smith had acted in as a spy; of his rushing recklessly and fearlessly into danger when his country's aid call- ed him to such servic...

Hence, gentlemen, those venial indulgences and selfish motives of legislation, which under ordinary circumstances might be pro- ductive of temporary mischief only and passed by without pun- ishment, would under the existing condition of things in our present attitude to the world be in us, turpitude of the decp- estrdye, meriting the chastisment of universal execration.

3 communicated. Mr. Editor; The committee of arrangements, appointed by the citizens of Columbia, are truly deserving of public gratitude for the ex- ertions they have made in procuring and preparing buildings for the accommodation of both houses of congress: but it appears, that either the want of a sufficient number of houses, or that they did not contemplate the increase of offices at the organization of the constitutional government, that some of the most impor- tant now in existence, are compelled to suspend business for the want of necessary accommodations. Agreeably to a resolution adopted this morning by the house of representatives, a notification has been given to the secretary of the navy, auditor, and controller of public accounts, to vacate the rooms occupied by them, for the accommodation of the clerks of that house; consequently these officers are com- . pelled to suspend business until other rooms can be procured. The rapidly increasing number of certificates of disc...
