I make this dec l.u.ition under high authority. Let mo remind the Senate of the examples given by the Seni tor lrtin North Carolina, .Mr. Ikidger, nt the la-t session. When .Mr. .lell'erson addies-sed a coulideiilial coiumutiicatiuii to Congress, and in vited their attention to tho condition of a cer tain poilion ol the Stale of Louisiana, then held by Spain, in v inlation of the treaty ol' 18ti:i. be represented tn Congress that hu had tried nego tiation ill vain, but did not leel at liberty to send the United Slates loree- into that pait nl' Louis iana, because, as he said, that act, Spain being in possession, might change the relations ol the country, ui. d lliein fuun a stale of peace to a statu of war. That territory clearly belong ed unto us alone, but was nut taken jio-se ion ol by order of the President. Spain lur a long time ritdincd possession of lliu port of .Mobile", and the Florida patisbe, as they were called. Nur were the latter taken possession of by the arms of tho United States until 1810; the "coun try was revolutionized by n set or private adven turers, who setup n government lor themselves. In that stale ofnllaiis, Congress not being in se-sion, Mr. Madi-on issued n proclamation and took possession; because, otherwise, as he said, thesu pui-hes would have been considered de relict, lie tool; it out of tho hands of the pri v.ite adventurers who bad ousted tho Spanish authorities and taken kwsoIoii of it. Mr. Madi-on did not take possession of .Mobile till I SKI, alter the passage ul Ihe sectel Act ol Longress of I year, authorising him to do so. Now, I say, then, upon Uie strength of the authorities, that if Mexico had possession ol the territory, or any pait ol tlie teruloiy, bi Iv.een the ixueci - ....1 11 in mo . . .iiiAiiii, una is uui mo lv iu-l.inee ol the liiibearanco with vvhiili this (ioveriimetit has subinilled to the holding1 of country by foreign nilioti-, claimed by us.

I was once ent fur, in great hast, to ntlenda gentleman or respectability, who-e wife, a latly of intelligence and refinement, li.ul discovered him in his room lying senseless on the Hour. On arriv ing at the bouse, I found Mrs. 11 in great distress of" mind. "What i-llio matter with Mr. II ?" I asked, on inciting his lady, who was in tears and looking the picture of 'distress. '1 am afraid it is apoplexy," she said, 'i found him lv ing upon tho floor, wbcro hu had, to all appearance, fallen sudenly fiom ifhTThiiir -His face is purple, and though lie breathes, it is with great difficulty." I went up to seo my patient. Ho had been lifted from the floor, a'nd was now lying upon the bed. Sure enough, hi- face was purple, and his I reathing labored, but somehow the symp toms did not indicate apoplexy, Kvcry vein in his hi'ad and face wa tinged, a'nd he lay perfect ly stupid, but still I saw no clear indication of an actual nr approaching congc-tion of tlie brain. 'Hadn't he belter bo bled, doctor.'" asked the anxious wife. I ' I don't know that it is ncce-ary," I replied. ' I think if wo let him alone it will pass off in the cniirse of a few hours." I ' A fevy hours ! He may die in halfan hour." I "I don't think the cue is so dangerous mud , am." ' Apoplexy not dangerous ? ' I hardly 'think it apoplexy," I replied. " Pray, do jou think'it is, doctor !" Mrs. il looked anxiou-ly into my face. I delic itely hinted lhat he might, pos-ibly, have been drinking too much brandy; but in this she positively and almost indigi'iintly ob jected. "No, d ctr. I ought tn know about tint," s'io s.iul, ' Depend upon it, tlie di-e.i-o is mure d eplv sealed. I am sure he ii til better he bled. Woi'tvou bleed him, doctor; A few ounces ol' lilo d liken from his arm may pile life to the now stagnant ciieul.itiou of tlie blood in his veins.'' Thus urged, I, after omo retlerlion, ordered a bowl nnd bandage, and ojpniiig a vein, from which tho blood lluwcil freely, relieved him of .limit right ounces of his circulating medium, Hut ho still liy as insensible as belore, much to the distress of his poor wife! 'Some thing else must be done, doctor,"' ho urged, seeing (hat blooding hid accomplished nothing. "If my husband is not quicklv relie ved, lie inu-t die." Hv this time several friends and relatl CPS.

'No brandy.'" 1 ventured this MlggCsllOll again, ' No, doctor! No spirit of any kind, nor even wine in tlie liou-e," returned Mrs. II, in an offended tune. I was not tho regular family physician ami h nl bi'en called in lo meet tho alarming emer gency, because my ollico happened to bo near est to the dwelling of Mr. 11 . Keeling my po sition to lie a difficult one, I suggested that tho family physician had better be called. ' lint the delay, doctor ;" urged the friends. " No harm will result from it, be assured," I replied. lint my worth did not a-sure them. Howev er, as I was linn in my resolution not to do any thing more fir the patient until Ioeir s;' came they had to submit. 1 wisln-d to make s. eill or importance in the neighborhood, and pro- r,-,.i fnntie, i lMc uV Uk. imil, poeter S arrived; but the Iriends of the sick man w ould not sillier mo to leave the room.
