E? - food or raiment. There may be some emigration from the northern and eastern states, but it is believed that it will not materially vary the result. If your committee should be mistaken in this view of the subject, there is another which may receive the concurrence of the northern and eastern States, that is, that the northern re- gions of Texas are but little known, other than as geographers and travellers have represented; its extent to the 4k2d degree of north latitude, nearly on the same parallel with Massachusetts and Connecticut, and west to the Kio del Norte, sufficient to form three or four medium sized States, and if its correct bound- aries were strictly insisted on, its limits would reach some dis- tance west of that river, it lias a pure and healthy atmosphere; and if historians and travellers are to be believed, it is intersect- ed with innumerable streams for water power, and situated 500 or 1000 miles distance from commerce and navigation, must em- phatically beco...

) K 1 Was complied with, thai Santa Anna has acquired a right to be liberated: and that the other articles being of minor importance, their non-fulfilment does not give the right to the government of lexas to consider the treaty broken, and that Santa Anna in consequence, retains unimpaired his right to require a fulfilment of the stipulations of the government ad interim in his favor. This proposition is utterly indefensible in law, and the adverse is the true one. No matter how inconsiderable in importance might be the other articles, the government of Texas has the undoubted right to consider their non-fulfilment, a breach of the treaty; and if it sees proper to avail itself of such breaches, Santa Anna ceases in consequence, to have any right under the treaty; and in this position, I am maintained by the doctrine laid down in Vattell, page 214, paragraph 200, and page 215, para graph 202. But although the right exists, still the exeicise of that right will depend on the policy o...

Mr. Bunton argued on the same grounds, Mr. Baker said we certainly have the right to violate our rules, but as yet he had heard no reason urged for amending that bill, if the"wisdom of Mansfield, Brougham and the im- memorial usage of the British House of Commons, with the un- derrating practice of the congress of the United States be too tramelled, and so unwise, as to be incompatible with the march of intellect, the wisdom of this house and the superior judgement of Independant Texas, then he might concur, hut it must be shewn ;that ihe consummate wisdom of ages is folly compared to our -Superior light of judgment, before he could consent to adopt t...
