antime the conspiracy for the annexation of Texas began to rear its head anew. Southern State legislatures adopted resolves in favor of Lib. 12.49. it which met with a willing reception in Congress, while those in opposition fell under the ban of anti-slavery Lib. 12.50. petitions until the inconsistency became too glaring. Lib. 12.57. Recruiting for the Texan army (even under clerical Lib. 12.55, 63. auspices) went on openly, at the North as at the South, after the invasion of Texas by Mexico in March. When, Lib. 12.51, 53, 59. on April 13, a Representative from New York moved in Congress to suppress the Mexican mission, as being an instrumentality of annexation, Slade of Vermont Wm.

s much as I did. I saw Garrison the other day, and he seemed to be especially pleased with it, and the account of Stephen Foster delighted him. Of that and Maria Chapman he spoke most particularly. Miller made one error, and only one, in his copy, and that was sweet instead of swift eyes. Mrs. Chapman's eyes are not sweet, but swift expresses exactly their rapid, comprehensive glance.’ The author of the Biglow Papers had already begun that inimitable satire of the national crime against Mexico, marked, so far, by Taylor's military successes at Lib. 16.82, 167.

lavery Extension, p. 47. Nicholson, December 24, 1847, laid down a principle of squatter sovereignty broad enough, indeed, for all the Territories of the United States, yet intended for immediate application only to the imminent acquisitions from Mexico. Stephen A. Douglas, speaking at New Orleans Lib. 18.105. in the summer of 1848, had also the Wilmot Proviso expressly in view when echoing Cass's doctrine, viz., that it was for the people inhabiting them [the Territories] to regulate their inmass settle down very little different from before. Indeed, the Government has fallen into the hands of the Slave Power completely. So far as national politics are concerned, we are beaten—there's no hope. We shall have Cuba in a year or two, Mexico in five; and I should not wonder if efforts were made to revive the slave trade, though perhaps unsuccessfully, as the Northern slave States, which live by the export of slaves, would help us in opposing that.
