HOUSE OF Jun. 23. KESOl.L'TlU.N'S. 1 Mr. having concluded, Mr.

Ckaiu rose and said: 1 1 desire, Mr. Speaker, to exprcsss tny sentiments in relation to the resolution now under discussion, briolly, but freely. No feeling of disapprobation can be miire trnng, none of aversion tnorc deep, titan that 1 entertain I towards it. regard it in its tendency, as bartering the dignity of the Stale for the triumph of party, violating the Constitution of tiie Union, degrading the Senate of the nation. 1 To show that these arc its tendencies, I maintain tiiat the resolution of the Senate sought to fce-oicpunged, exposses a just sentiment, and was.properly adopted.

To prove this, do not intend logo into it tedious argument. Would it not almost suffice to state the fact, that a Jackson House of Representatives dured not meet the question presented in the Senate's resolution, but blinked it, thnt i Jickson Lcir.slalure of Virginia, decided it bv a large majority, in lurin as strongly condemnatory ot' i the Executive, as that which the Senate's resolution as- Not a member either I in use of Congress, or ot' the Legislature ol' Vu, at the time, entirely to justify tile proceedings of tin; Executive. will not call up the history of thc-past minutely to review the facts to which the Senate's resolution alludes, and the reasoning which was employed to sustain which have ne- vor been denied. Powerful reasoning of the mostpowerful minds of the age, which has never been met by one sound orevco plausible argument. Reasoning, which sundered the strongest party ties of thousands from one- extent of' the Union to other; which palsied for a time tire i strength and influence of tire strongest administration that ever wielded the government of a free Sir, whatever is profound in the knowledge of con- stitutiona! law; whatever is enlarged in the coruprehen- I sion of Statesmen; whatever is ardent, pure undexpan- sive in patriotism; whatever is eloquent and denionslra- tive in argument; whatever is firm and noble in man, dignified and adorned the Serrate-who adopted the resolution now sought to be marked with infamy on their journal.

Can it be, sir, that the resolution of that Senate is so odious, bo palpabie and dangerous an assumption of power not warranted by Uie Constitution, as to demand this tie- grading For, degrading it must be to them who receive, or those who give. To which of these, Sir, we should pause to determine. What is the rcso- lution of tire Senate? A mere legislative expression of opinion, that the Executive, in hrs proceedings in re- 1 lation to the public revenue, transcended his constilu- tional powers. Mr. do notjnteful to go into I 1 the arguinrnt on the point, whether the resolution is true or not.

Rut just tell me, you, sir, who, as a disci- pie of the Virginia Democratic School, are opposed to the exercise ol all constructive powers as uuconstilu- 1 tional, and a firm advocate of a rigid adherence to the exclusive exercise ot powers expressly granted i nnd those ubsoluldij necessary to carry them into of- feci as the only constitutional use, sir, in what clause of the what section of the law did the Executive find an express grant c.f the authority lie exercised in relatiou to the politic revenue What power expressly granted to him was that authority absolutely necessary to carry into filed? It has been Democratic in Virginia to deny that the legislative branch of the General Government can constitutionally charier a 1 as a fiscal agent, because the power is not given in Units, nor bfy necessary to the exercise of any given power; yet it is now Democratic to assert that the Executive may con- a stituiionallv discard that fiscal agent without the least 1 pretension of an express grant of power to that effect; 1 discard it, too, in the face of an express law of Congress establishing it, and create scores of fiscal a similar character, in its stead. The Executive, then, in 1 relation to the public revenue, may break down that 1 which the People's Representatives have established, and 1 establish that in its stead, which exceeds all that they can rightfully do. Thus, sir, it is now Democratic to give to one man, in relation to the public revenue, a power denied to the whole body of the People's more than this, a power to nullify their solemn acts, if the highest branch of those llepresen- tatives, clothed with the sovereignty of the States, dare to express an opinion that the Executive has transcend- fij ed his powers; it is now Democratic to rebuke them in the most odious and degrading form; to deny them the right to utter their free thoughts and bring theui down 1 in humble, tame and silent submission to the Executive l. will. Sir, that the free ami lofty spirit of independent Representatives of sovereign States should thus be let- 11 tered, and chained down in subservience to Executive a power, in the name of that people ot' Virginia, whom 1 11 I Ill JIUIl ICJIIUVill, 1 OUH.IIIUj Mr.

Speaker, I object further to the resolution of the Committee, that the Senate cannot constitutionally do the act which it requires to be done. If so, then of course we cannot constitutionailv vote for that resold- tion. Mark the clause ol the Constitution, sir, as to the lk Journal?" Kach House shall keep a journal of its pro- cccdings, antl from time to lime publish the same." The Constitution then requires that the Senate shall keep a journal of their proceedings. Now, sir, whether to 01 expunge," as applied to record, is, to cancel, to efface, 11 to obliterate, to erase, to destroy, or whether, according to the learned philological deductions of ihe Committee, al it is to draw black lines around the record, and wiite ul "expunged" over it, (only that the latter is supreme- ai ly ridiculous) it is virtually the same thing. If to expunge" has meaning, any etliciciil operation, 111 any virtual effect as applied to a rccuid, it must be to cause that which exists us a record as such no longer h' to exist.

As to the mode by which this is to "be done, whether in one ridiculous way or another, as rt to the mere mechanical, manual detail of operation to effect the object, it is surely the most trilling tjues- I ei tion that was ever gravely proposed to a dclibera- live assembly. That this view correct, sir, is shewn bv the course of the Committee The? propose to have a record expunged. Do they mean that alter that is done, that record shall still have full force and virtue us it shall still stand as a record? If they do, then they propose to do a thing which when done is to have no rube thing perfectly idle and vain. Tlie Committee, 1 presume, will not con- ti eenl that they have this idle and vain ti Then sir, in proposing to instruct our Senator to ex- 11 pungc the record of the Seuate's resolutioh, I hey must intend Jbat cause that record as such no longer 01 jq exi8t that as a record, they shall cause it no longer lo stand," but be destroyed. This, sir, the Senate have no right to do.

It aguinst the spirit and express letter cf the Constitution, which requires tin? Senate to Lap a re- g' Cord of their proceedings. The Constitution requires lh that a journal, a record of nil the Senate's proceedings shall be kept, shall be preserved. The resolution of the Committee proposes that a part of the Senate's proceedings shall be expunged, shall be made no longer Pa It? pjiat ns a record-shall, as such, bo destroyed? sir, can the Constitution permit lliot to be de- i troy til which it commands to he prist rnd the lie tuber from solve the problem. Tiie Lulltilution in this respect, is strikingly analogous to the iw in rcurd to the proceedings ol Courts of it be that any Court of record assumes jurisdiction enicd tu it by the it not only v.olales the aw by enteitaining the cuseat all, hut also in that asc pronounces judgment in itself palpably unjusthe law requires that judgment to be ncord thereof cannot he annulled. 'i he jmignent, according to established rules of practice, may set aside; it may be superseded, it may be ievrsed.

Hut to nuke void the record nj the judgment, he as palpable a violation of the law. as "i was take jurisdiction ol the ease, ami to pronounce lie judgment. Sir, no member wiil contend that tiny coid oi a Court ol Justice can lawfully he oxunged 01 wliyr Jh cause lite law the in till to he mere then is this the use as all the proceedings of fhe Senate. It main is v. hi ther tiie Senate have jurisdiction or riot, wlscler its decision he ight or wrong, the Constitution, the lex legiim of the land, which we are all sworn to reserve, requires the proceeding to recorded, the iruril thereof tu he and therefore forbids all e.vpungng ir: every every tiring which is in iiy way to impair tlut record, or to cause it as sucii no enger to exist.

Sir. the difference between opcaliix', or resciiming a obvious. The former terms apply to the resolution oly in iis iiilluence, its virtual operation or eliect? applies alxvujsto the tirot'd of the resoltiiou: Therelore, to repeal, to annul, to rescind a solution is, the Constitution in itr a record of it to he Lrj.t, excludes expunging i) any mode or decree wliatt ver. Speaker, what does it the argument for ex unoinir, if diligent and research into Kngisli Tiistorv ma find one or two instances of something ike it in the course of three or four centuries? The jolilical power ot 1'arliauienl, sir, is unlimited; it rounded by no written Constitution; it is defined in his respect no clause requiring a record of their pro cedinos to be kept. According to the theory ol tiie I'liK'lisli Government, I'arliauient is omnipotent; it may In iiiiv thing: and, theielbre, from its acts in this respect, so authority can be derived lor the Senate ot the billed States.

One case of in our own Legislature, and the only one known to its annals, has ieeii lately called up from the thrilling history of days tuig past, and presented to our attention, it was, sir, ivlieu the spirit of a Henry, town ring and sublime is the mountain heights of Ins country, pure and free as the air surrounding them, by a matchless eloquence ruled the free minds of the Whigs of Virginia, arid arrayed them opposition to the usurpations of the llritish Crown, it was then that a resolution condemnatory of the stamp act suggested by that master mind, nid adopted by the friends of English liberty and American rights, was. alter many of them had left for tiieir ionics, expunged from their journal by the advocates of iingly power. Will gentlemen plead this as a case in mint? Will they say, that as those of that day who advocated Ihitisli usurpation or feared to condemn it, exHinged from tiieir journal the evidence of that condemlution, su ill we expunge the Senate's journal which ioudcinns the usurpations of our own the resolution of the logs of the Union, which as clear and palpable as any that narked the era of Colonial wrongs? Sir, I perceive rentlcineu have no disposition to rely upon this II they do, it is no authority. No constitution required i record of their proceedings to he kept; none, therefore, forbade any part them to be expunged. llut, sir, even if the Constitution did not forbid this net which is now required to he the sentiment on the journal of the Senate were not not properly there expunge it? It is not like die repealing of a law or the reversal of a judgment, whereby the operation and eli'ect are to cease.

The Senate's resolution is simply a legislative expression of opinion on the part of the Senate who adopted it; and expunge as you iinnj, that opinion will still remain the same. Jt is a mere abstract sentiment. It has gone forth to the world. It exists in thousands of records all jver the nation. It has discharged its ollice.

Then, though you should instruct your Senators to draw black lines around it on their journal, and write "expunged" over it, you thereby cause its existence as a record on that journal to cease; yet, so far as the effect and operation of thai resolution is concerned, you might as well instruct them remove the carpel from tiic floor of the Senate Chamber, if you could putsuc that resolution of the Senate wherever it is found, through the thousands of journals and periodicals from one extent of the Union to the other, and blot out its existence from them all, its sentiments still would live where your power can never reach it, deep and unfading in the heart and memory of every good Whig of America. it will always he cherished there. The principles I which it inculcates of opposition to usurpations of pow- er, ill, it is hoped be perpetuated to the latest posterity. these principles, the true friends of the Conslilu- lion, the Union and rational Liberty, must vigorously I and perscvcringly contend, if they relax their ellbrts in despair, or it those efforts fail, the American people will iiave proved, that it is the destiny of man to he in- capable of sell-government. They have now contend against fearful on the side of usurpation, of patronage and of power, are the pensioned host of of- lice-holders, forty thousand sliong.

who are stationed at i every point most favorable for cliieient partizan service? I who are banded-together, animated by the hope of spoils, and, ex-ollicio, are compelled to sustain the Executive and his dictated successor in all they have done, are doing and mean to do hereafter. In aid of these, come the venal parlizau presses, proclaiming to millions, who hear none but their misguiding voice, that all's well? that the Executive has done, means to do, and can do, nothing his own appointed successor, for whom it was once glory enough to have served ui.Jer him, is alone invested with his vii lues? is alone entitled to the higher glory of succeeding to his- jule ami per- petuating his measures. Add to this combined aimy, a majority of Congress and a minority of the who for their parly, right or wrong, who, to sustain its in- and promote its strength, the name of the poo- de submit to the power and coniroul of the Executive, some of the most important lights of the people and of heir representatives, fcur, to make this array still more brmidalde, let the Executive command the public 1110icy, as he claims a right to let him get up i ionic pretexts to organize a military ibrce, and the liber- ies oi this llcpubiic arc in ins hands, and depend upon lis will. tsir, what arc we called on to do? Shall we not coneuil ug.wnst this formidable array: Must wu be coinH'lled to go still further, and yoke irginia to the car of Executive triumph: Must we make her stoop from the leiglils of her ancient renown, to pamper the pride of m.tvnr In nnml nn nvloril to administer balm In its slightest wounds, by retpiirng lit i Senators to mark 'villi disgrace on their journal, lie resolution condemning usurpations? Oh, no, sir! Let it not lie. Truth and justice, liberty and the principles oJ' tiro glorious patriots ol' other lays are on our side; wilJi these, let us oppose uli this ormidablc array.

Let the mountains and vales of Virginia stillecho the sentiment, senijier us resolve that we helping hat we wiii preserve the Constitution ami the Union? lie rights and liberties of our whole and orcver.

When Santa Anna sent lliein orders for un imiiiediate and uncoudilmnal llay replied, that lie should attest ilnor and that they were capable of holding out any l'oiee of his, even if it contained 5UH1J men.

There were 7dU Texians encamped si me miles distant. These immediately liasb in the town, solved to cut the r. treat and iea of the invading arniy. S.iu Antonio may then lure be the giave ol Santa Anna; and not only the triumph of Tcxuj independeiice, but of Mexican liberty. A deplorable apathy had previously inuuilislcd itself in the Tcxian army; all were anxious not to Le garrisoned in Sao Antonio; and hence perhaps the capture.

The journals of Sun Felipe greatly complain of tins spirit, ami sjy that those who were determined to capture the town formerly were solicitous to leave it to its present fate. The Texian commissioners are healing up for recruits and loans in Kentucky and Tennessee. Cols. Archer and Wiiaiton, arrived in on the and Col. Win.
