TELEGRAPH 93 V a welcome from any other source, however kind or respectable, could not have given rise to prouder feelings. As Americans, we hail you as the champion of liberty ! As Georgians, we hail you as a brother, and recur with pleasing: sensations to the home of our and your nativity, when first we knew and admired you, actuated by that inborn love of liberty and detestation of tyranny peculiar to the American character, and recently so eminently developed in you : we paused not to calculate the cost, but with arms in hands, at once resolved to unite with our brethren of Texas, and share their destiny. And although, Sir, it con- stituted the zenith of our ambition, as the sons of Georgia, to add to the lustre of that fit star in the American confederacy, onor of having acted a conspicuous part e cause of suffering Texas, yet we were unconscious of the fact, until since we .left home, that our wishes, in that regard, were in a great measure realized, and that Georgia's honor a...

The usurpations of the aristocratic party in Mexico have placed you in a situation which you so practically understand, that any allusion to them is unnecessary. You have just returned to your homes flushed with victory, and all Texas is in joy on account of the splendid triumph of the principles of the Constitution over those of tyranny and despotism: you have nobly established in this, the country of your adoption, the prin- ciples of your patriot fathers of 1776, and have thus far observed your obligations to support the republican federative govern- ment of Mexico.

TELEGRAPH '95 us under its protection, all admit that our situation would be critical. But let us refer for one moment to the previous his- tory of that government, and judge for ourselves as to the probable result. Inter- ference with the territory of foreign nations, and all entangling alliances it has ever been the policy of the United States to avoid. When Mr. Jefferson purchased Louisiana, it produced the most tremendous excite- ment, and amounted almost to a severance iof the Union. The constitutional power of government to acquire foreign territory, jver been denied by the republican md it is not probable that any great has taken place on that subject. manufacturing interest, it is well known, is opposed to the acquisition of territory to the South j and these things, taken in consideration with the good faith -that should be observed between govern- ments, would, no doubt, induce the go- vernment of the United States to decline admitting us into the Union.

The plan of removing the aboriginal peo- ple who yet remain within the settled por- tions of the United States, to the country west of the Mississippi river, approaches to its consummation. It was adopted on the most maturelconsideration of the condition of this race; and ought to be persisted in till the object is accomplished, and prose- cuted with as much vigor as a just regard to their circumstances will permit, and as fast as their consent can be obtained. All preceding experiments for the im- provement of the Indians, have failed. It secms'-Yiow to be an established fact, that they cannot live in contact with a civilized community, and prosper. Ages of fruitless endeavors have, at length, brought us to a knowledge o! this principle of intercommu- nication with them. The past we cannot re...

The idea does not seem so chimerical at this moment, as three years ago, would have seemed the project of bringing Charleston within three days of New York by a similar process ; or as within the memory of many of our readers, would have seemed, or dd seem, the idea of navi- gating vessels by steam in any direction.

The Pacha of Egypt has also made a contract with a Boston house to supply the country of the Pyramids with cargoes of this same frigid commodity.

In this way, a very respectable arm-jjuiight be immediately organized there, principally of materials to commence active operations on the .interior. This would be putting the war in the hands of its lawful and proper owners ; for this war is not ours, although we have been compelled, in self- defence, to become a party to it. We have neither provoked, nor yet given cause for extending it to Texas. It originated in the interior of the country, in a contest for power, and there it belongs; and we owe it both to ourselves and the enemy, to carry it home. Let them have the war, and let us put them in a way to fight its battles. We can then remain a party to it, or with- draw, at pleasur...

And none that so soon become dissatisfied with the life of a camp and inactivity. To be efficient, they must be led against the enemy soon after their arrival at the seat of war, and have regulars to act with, and rely upon: other- wise, when the zeal and enthusiasm that give impulse to their association, begins to cool, they will become licentious and dis- solve like a rope of sand, for want of original principles of adhesion and combination. As to our internal capabilities, we are placed between the Sabine and the Rio Grande, on the very threshhold of the Mexi- can Gulf, which gives a long line of sea coast, with a soil rich in all the productions of the south, and pierced by many fine rivers.
