Speaker of the House of Representatives for reversal or affir- mation. But he seems to have forgotten that the joint resolution required the concurrence of both branches of the Legislature with the sanction of the Executive before it became a law inasmuch as the result of the Court's in- vestigation was directed singly to the House of Representatives and could travel no fur- ther. What could the House do with them- I would respectfully ask? Would the Hono- rable Speaker take upon himself the execu- tion of the sentence of a court-martial? The case stands alone. It is without a parallel in point of absurdity not only unsus- tained by law and unsanctioned b precedent hut in direct violation of all the rides and reg- ulations of either the naval or...

This being the case the simple.question is presented whether the amendments under consideration or the former amendment providing only for a separate Supreme Court ought to be adopted. Your committee confidently hope that the other amendments will be sustained by the people and that their presenta- tion with the first will secure to the whole a large vole which might be op- posed to any one separately presented. Your committee are of opinion that it is lime Congress should be authorized to pass an act of naiuralizrtjon specifically providing the mode by which future im- migrants to the country may be entitled to the civil and political rights of resi- dent citizens. In pursuing this coute Texas will at least be .following the ex- ample of all other nations of modern limes.

That by the present mode the impost taxes are un- just unequal and onerous. Only call to mind what was before stated. On the 31st of April 1843 Exchequers were received at seventy cents at Port Calhoun while at Gal- veston they were paid in at one hundred cents on the dollar. In this case the importer at - Port Calhoun and his customers') were nny- ing at the rate of 40 per cent upon the total amount of their duties more than the importer at Galveston. But there has been at different points a more glaring inequality even than this. At Galveston they have been received at various rates from eighty down to sixty -cents on the dollar while at Red River they bave been received at all times at par.

Mr. Lewis of Montgomery : As it is my in- tention to vote against the passage of the bill I will briefly state my reasous for doing so. As it now reads it is not a bill for the location of the seat of government by the people. What may be its name or cognomen after ip shall have passed the House and been christened none of us can determine. That however is a inattcr of little consequence to me. I am not opposed as every gentleman in this House is aware to the location of the seat of govern- ment by the people. They alone in my opinion can locate it. For sir there is no right or power granted by the Constitution or anywhere else to Congress to locate the seat of government. It is therelore reserved ex- pressly to the people and cannot be exercised by Congress. A refined distinction (not so ...
