D., tho celebrated Sur geon, and printed liy order of llio Society : The instant it body is loinovcd fiom the water, the Itinss utighl to lie inllafed. No thing cm compensate for the neglect of this. I ressing forcibly upo'i the chest, uowu w.ird and backward, will cause more or less' air to rush into the lungs. lilts is to uo continued so a, to imitaio j.ljatiiral breathing, until u pair of common Fbellovvs can be procured. As soon as these are had, tho nozzle is to I., , .1 . i i hr Mitt-.irdiec'f I, tint, llto liittcntn. mill !t line.'- cl handkerchief thrown around it, in older more effectually to close the mouth, and thereby to prevent tliu escape of nir, Before (ho bellows nro used, no assistant should press firmly upon the most projecting part of the front of tho neck, (called Adam's apple,) by which the passage leading into the stomach will ho closed. Tho action of tho bellows is now to ho used, and the lungs distended as suddenly us possible. To aid in thu removal of this air from the lungs, an assistant should press sud denly, as before directed, upon thu chest. In this way an attempt to imitate natural respiration can best bo made. To aid in tho great object of resuscitating life, any kind of indent spirit maybe tlitovvn upon tho surface of a bowl or pail of hot wa ter, placed below tliu bellows : or as a last resort, spirits may be set on fire. In this way, spirituous vapor will readily bo introduced into tho lunys. This will greatly aid us in rousing the action of the heart. If tliu primary and all important principle 1)0 to infl iln tho lungs, nnd thereby unload the right side of tho heuii, wo must continue tho artificial respiration for some timu cer tainly from half an hour to an hour. While this is being done, tliu warmth of tho body is to bo cherished, and increased, if possible, by warn! blankets, bottles of hot water, hot bricks, u hot hath, etc. During the time the inflation of tho lungs is going on, the head may as well have a lit tle elevation. Until natural respiration begins to bo es tablished, wo would not advise frictions at the extremities or any pail of tho body. If tlioy have any effect, it must bo a bad one, as tho venous blood may bo urged on more or less to tho heart, and keep up nnd increase tho over-distension of tho cavities of the right side. Soon after natural breathing has begun, frictions may no proper to promote tho How of venous blood to llio heart, to aid in con tinuing its action. Frictions may now, also, augmont the animal heat. At this stage, warm toddy of any kind, warm water and sugar, with 13 or 20 drops ot tno aromatic spirits of ammonia, or com mon arms ammonia, (hartshorn) may bo in jected into tho stoir.ach, by means of the tube and stomach pomp. To aid in rousing thu action of tho lungs and heart, while tho artificial respiration is persevered in, shocks of electricity or tho galvanic current may ho mado to pass direct ly through tho heart and lungs, nnd directed through tho courso of tho Pneumo-gastric and Phrenic nerves in tho nuck.

Tho resolution to which I shall next call the attention of tho Convention, is the following: Uesolved, That wo deprecate the contempla ted annexation of Texas to the Union. We regard tliu inuvcniont to that end as originating in a purpose to perpetuate the Slave Power ; and doom it our duty to declare that such an nexation, if effectual, will ho a virtual tlissolu. tiuu of the Union introducing, as it will, into tho confederacy, parties entirely beyond the an ticipation ot the Constitution thereby abolish, in;; the old, by the constitution of a new polit ical family, ami thus breaking up the founda tions of our federal Union. Tho moiement is of no recent origin. It was among tho first acts of (ionoral Jackson's Ad lumisirution to sec!; a cession of Texas fiom the government of Alexicrl. 'I ho ticgncialion failed. Texas could not ho obtained by cession , and thenceforward it was to bo obtained by revolt, and .innovation. To cIToct this purpose emigra tions wi'io encouraged and increased- Compa n es were formed upon tho bisis of pretended grants nflargo tracts of land by the (iiivoru tnoiit of .Mexico; ami rights, in the form of script, wore disposed of to adventurer;, by agents in Ntw Urlcans, INuw ork, and oilier cities ot the Union. In 15:)!), tho movement became no far ma tilled that a revolt was proclaimed. .Samuel Houston, formerly (Jovornor of Tenne-sco, and subscipieutly lucuibcr of Congress from that State, was its leader, who gave out on his atri val in Texas, Hint ho was "in tho po.s-css.on of the private views of the President oi the rioted State--," and openly invited aid from the United -Slates. An invitation for aid, and a disclosure of the purpose of the revolt appear m 'lie follow ing cMracl from Ins letter to (ion. Dun! lp, of TeiiuesM'e. I lawns spoken of tho loicp neces sary to 'rout' tho Mexican troops, he says, "l'nr a portu n of ibis fwee wo must look to the Ui iled .Siiilcs- It cannot naeh us too (.ooii. is but one fading in Texas, in my opinion ; and that is, to establish rlie ludtpeudence nf Texas, and to be atlachid to the United Stales. .March as speediiy as possible, with all ihu aid you can bring." Hero was an open invitation from the Commander-in-Chief of the Toxiau foices, for voluu tccrs to aid in wresting fiom Mexico this por tion of her territory, in order to nxnrx il to the United Stales. The fo'iowing from a Missis sippi paper, (the Vu ksburg Register,) will allow how this imitation was responded to. " 'J'hree hundred men fur T-ias. Gen. I'tinhn. of Tuini'ssce, is about lo proceid to Texas Willi the above number ol The whole corps are now at 1 Memphis. Kvery man is eonuililtly aimed, ihe corps having bem orm mlly rai-ed (or tho I'lorida war.

With Ihe aid thus nfiurdod, tho revolution vent o.i. On the second of .March, ISM, the , ueciaraunn or n iiepenu. nee was issued ; ami on H'10 J1'1 nf the same month a constitution was formed.

These efforts to e.vitc tho War spirit in aid of the Texian revolt wore st'comied hy Texian Land Jobbers in various parts of tho United States, and by the universal sympathy of those who wished to extund and po'i pel into slavery. Associations vveio formed. Contributions ol money wore openly invited ; and arms and ot ti er munitions ot war puichased and sent lo Tex as. Viiluutcers lor the war were dei-putrhed under the name of " emigrants," and heavy guns ship;.cd under the denomination ol ",irjf .o.v waioj" win1..- many of both went without any d,.-guifC whatever.

Games was ordered with a portion of thu United States troop.-, to march into Texas. lie obeyed, and took post at JS'aoogdoche, lilty miles beyond tho line. Tho character of this expedition was thus do. scribed by an oflicer of that army, in a letter da ted at Nacogdoches, and pnb'ished in the Aunv and Navy Cnruiiicie. Referring to the object of tho expedition, ho says "It ii to create the iinprcs-ion in Texas tint llio Government of Ihe United Slates takes a pari III the controversy.

On the livid of December, 1SJU, ho communicated to Congress thu report of tho special agent. The message accoinpinymg the report contained a full and explicit declaration of tho inexpediency of recognition upon the fol lowing ground, That 'the acknowledgment of a now State as Independent," was always "an act of great del icacy and responsibility especially when such fcstato hid forcibly separated itself twin another, of which it had formed a put; and which still claims dominion over it;" that "u premature recognition under such circumstance, is always liable to ho regarded as a proof of an unf.-iondly .spirit to one of the contending parties," anil would he "equivalent, under some circumstan ces, to a declaration of war ;" that tho recogni tion by us of the independence of the Spanish American States hid been delayed "not only until the ability of the new States to protect themselves was fully established, but until the danger of their being again subjugated had en tirely passed awav ; that such was not thu con dition of Texas !n lofcrcncc to .Mexico; and I hat, as tho Toxiau revolution had been oltuctcd by " emigrants from tho United States," and tho acknowledgment of independence hid been sought by theiii " with an avowed design to treat immediately of its transfer to tho United Slates, and its admission into Ihu Union as one of tho Federal States, a too early movement mitrht sub ject Us, however unjustly (!) to the imputation o! seeking to establish the claims ol our neigh bors to a territory with a view to its subsequent acquisition by ourselves." Hero was a conclusive argument against tiie rocognition, oithur f iri ed Iroui the President by a conviction of its conclusiveness, or feigned to bo sati-.f.icloiy for the p irposo of quieting ap prehensions in regard to tho ineasuie. Tno n.ojs.ige was referred to the Committee ol Foreign All'iirs, who, on the of Fobrua- i ry, S'17, lep irted tvvu resolutions to tho effect 'that "tho independence of Texas ought to be recognized!" and taht "the Committee of Ways and .Means be instructed to provido in the bill for tho civil and diploinitic expenditures I of the government, a salary and out tit for such I public njrent as ths President mav determine to send" February Xil.-t ihe resolutions were taken up, and on motion, were laid on the Utile, by a vote of ()j to Sfi ; and a motion to re consider the voto was lost by a vote of 107 to DO. And now mark what followed. Although the Ilnu-o had relived to s.iy tint the independence n TiXas otiirht lobe acknowledged, ami had re fused to duect the Committee oi Ways and .Moans to report an uppiopnal'on for a .Min.Mer to'tliat country, yet seven days afterwards, wln-n the public apprehension hail been thus allayed, there was suddenly sprung upon the House a proposition to amend the civil and diplomatic ap propriate 1 bill by adding an appropriation -'lor the outfit and salary of a dinlnin ttic agent Hi Ik sent to the Republic of Texas whenever the I'icsident may recc.vo satisfactory evidence tint Texas is an independent! deem it expedient to appoint such minister." And what, think you, was the fate of this proposition ! Though a direct proposition for recognition, and an appropriation for a minister was lost, 0110 week before by a majority of -12, yet tho whole was now 1 oversell by a majority ol -IH the amendment being carried bv a vote uf ll'Jlo 70! And what next 2 The President, notwith standing his conclusive argument two months before, against tho mea.-ure, and not with r-taiidmg tho decided vole, a week before, agtiust it, and notwithstanding the suddenly reversed voto left the expediency of consum mating the implied recognition by Ihu appoint ment of a Minister, entirely within his dis cretion, upon rectiiin satisfactory evilonco that Texas was an independent power, the I'lesidout, I say, notwithstanding all this, sud denly lost his scruples, forgot his own argu ments, and without watting " to nrcice" satis factory evidence, or any evidence, instantly! perceive! that Texts, was an independent power, and instantly became satisfied that it I teas "expedient to appnnt the .Minister ; and thereupon, in tho voiy same hour in which ho signed the bill unking the appropriation, sent a nomination of the minister to the Sunato; and the Senate, in the same hour, pissed the vote of continual ion ! Tims was carried the recognition of Tex ian independence I And by .some such spring vote Mime such Logi.slative sleight o'liand, and Executive second s giit, will unnixalhn bo ef fected, il ell'ecled at all. The sudden abandonment by the President, of liis objections to iccogui'iun, without any change in the condition ot Texas, or any e'l-a-vowal by her of an intention to seek ',uhii,.-.-..i,. into thu Union as one of the Fedeial Stales" was, of cour.-e, logarded hy her as an invitation to such union: and accordingly, the limt act ol her minister, Mr. .Memucan liiint, was tu make a proposal to that ell'ect. As the Jlxecutiie could not add a now Slate lo the Union, ho was obliged to dechiiu thu proposal, liut, in tho moan time tho appropriate machinery had been put in motion, and numerous petitions, together with resolutions of State Legislatures, in favor of annexation were laid upon tho tables of Con gress. They wero met by couu'er resolutions fit the Legislatures of Vermont, Ma-sacliusotts, Rhode Island, Ohio and Michigan, together with the leir.onstrauces of more than one bun. dred thousand petitioners against annexation.

Hut tho project was not abandoned. The Pandora's I)ox, as Mr. Adams called it, was again opened by tho presentation to Congress at the session of Hll-'J, of resolutions of Ala buna, .Mississippi and Tonnosee in favor of an liu.ralion. No action of Congress followed these movements; but they wero accompanied by n sympathetic movement on tho part of numerous Southern presses, Rnd followed by an extraor dinary speech in Congress by Mr. Wise in fa vor ol annex itinn ; and an equally rxlraonliua ry letter from (Joy. Gilmer, member of Congress from Virginia to the samo effect both of which I shall, hereafter more particularly notice. 1 cone now to the purpoao of tho annexation movement. From its commencement to this hour, it has obeyed a single impulse that a de termination to sustain the slave pnicer. Ol this I will as briefly as possible, present thu evidence. liy the Constitution of Mexico, adopted in ISi!, it was declared that no poison should thereafter "be born, on introduced, as a slave into tho Mexican na'ion." The abolition of slavery thus made prospective only, was render ed abMilute and complete on the" lO'li or Sop. tembur 1SJU tliu anniversary of Mexican Inde pendence. The abolition of slavery in Mexico brought in contact with the South, another Inmticr oP nee dom. How should th it frontier with all its anti-slavery iulluunce he removed! and how should the harrier to emigration with slaves, be thrown down? were questions which couu to agitato extensively, the Southern mind. Atimxation furnished the answer.

It was soon after the promulgation of this Constitution tint Iho groat movement w.ifi made upon Congress to obtain a recognition of T '.van Independence, which finally resulted as I hive show ii in smuggling through Congress at the last hour of (Jen. Jackson's administration, an appropriation for the outfit and salary of a min. istcr to that country. And thnn came the for mal application through tho Texan Minister, for admission into our Confederacy ; with the presentation to Congress of numerous petitions of slave holders, and resolutions of the Legisla. tures of slaveholding states, in favor of iho so. licit .vied admission. From among the numerous evidences of tho continued operation at this period, of tho motive for annexation to which I havo relerred, I select tho following : The Mobile Advertiser held tho following Ian. guago : "The South wash to have Texsi admitted into tlm Union for two reisons; First toetjualizc the South with the Xorthi and, secondly, as it convenient and 1.3 fe place, calculaird, from itiipeculur good soil, and kahibnous climate, for a ttave population. Interests! fadures of tha non-6laveho!ding State !' Not and politiezl safety both nh!m prompt th action andia straw unlets it be connected with additional fntonx.hearsumant'' security to aior spesits of nunufaciure-of Ins foiiowing toast wan ibout the eamo tlma wh.t-h it dtc- nut spak t'n rrnnufat-ture, the given at a public, meeting of distinguished men U Columbia. S. C. ; , " Texas If muled lo our government as a State, It will prove an invalualilencq.iisiuon to Ihe .Southern otatesand Iheir Domctlk Iintilntion." From the resolutions of Statu Legislatures, it this period, in favor of annexation, I lake the following from .1,ssi.,3ippi as a specimen: " flcsottcJ, that the nnncxitinn of Texas to this Republic is essential lo the futuio safely and repose of the Southern Slates uf this Conltderacy." The report of tho Committee who reported this resolution to tho Legislature contains tho following rnnifiikablu pat-ige ; "Tho Northern States have no i u tr -est of Iheir own which requires any special safeguards for lluir du lence, savo only their domestic manufacturer s and Ood knows they have already received proieciion mm tho government on a most liberal scale, under which encouragement the v have improved and flour ished beyond example. The South hare very new liar intrrettito preserre interests alreadly violently assai'ed, and boldly threatened. Your C.inim ttc'o are fully persuaded that this protection to her I., st in Uresis will bo airtrded bv the annexation of Texas. An equipoise of iiitl.inneo in the Halls of Congress will be secured which will furnish us a permanent guaran ty of protection." Thus wo sen protection otliii-rif claimed as a compelis itiou for protection to free labor; and tint not by maintaining Ihe right of the s'atcsto perpetuate slavery w ithin their hunt--, nor by according to theui the right of defending it, as heat they may, ag.iin-t the moral power of a re deemed and purified Chrt-tiauily ; hut by dis membering a foreign country introducing into it slavery from our own making il perpetual by tiio constitution and I'.oii adding the whole terr.tory. slavery, Coiistitut.jii and all, to this UcDub'ic ! Such was the srlmins, and such the motives. Too project then f.uleJof accomplishment ; but as wo have seen, was not abandoned ; for, to nothing Ins the slave power clung with more tenacity than this. Tno purposu of the great movement so Hilly described in the Mississippi Ueport, has been, since, more strikingly mani fested in a speech of Mr. Wie delivered in Con. gross in January 13 1 "J, from which 1 make a short extract . In considering the subject of the equation of power between freedom and slavery, which, it seems, must bo maintained at all hazards, Mr. Wise said "If Iowa be added to Ihe one side, I'lorida will be 1 'tl tu "'a other, ihu there the equation must siop 1. o mm lite equilibrium is gone forever nunc. The balance ol in terest is L'ono tile S'tfe'.u.trd of American torment- Here is one of ihe American Conslii '.iion, of the American Tnion, , Charleston ! vanished into thin air.

Lit the South Hop at llio S il me while the North may spread, un checked, beyond ihcltochv Mountains, and the Soul'i em s-alt must hirl. the beam."

The letler was written to a privato individual, w ho accoribiig to tho annunciation of the II illnnoro Itopublieun, in publishing it, regarding P as " placing Iho policy of the annex itiou of Texas lo the United Status in a iery ttrihing and im posing point of vieu;" and thorelbro communi. cated it, with the Ic ive of Governor Gihuer, for publication. A few extracts will suffice lotnow its clu racter. Un thu subject of stroii"ihnin.r thoshvo power, it is loss hold than .Mr. Wise. 11 was uviuuntiy written tor publication, and su. gars over llio deadly dose, in a manner to make it as olVensivo as possible to tho people of ihe North. " You ask," savs Ihe letter, "if I havo expressed myui 1111011 that Texas w ill he annexed to the United States. I answer, yes-, and ibis opinion has nut been adopted without rttleclionor wiihuut a cartful exinunalion of causis which, I believe, nro mindly brigius about ibis result, I do not know how far these causes may have inadu the same impression 1111 others ; bui 1 am persuaded that llio time is not far distant when they vt ill ho felt with nil their force. Tlio exciieineiit which you apprehend, may arise- but it wall he teinporarj , and 111 tho end salutary." ' "I assume what no one will deny, that under iho jurisdiction of tho United Slates, ihe large and uiiusii. ally fertile territory otTexns will be rapidly peopled s nnd an iinmeusonecession will ho made to our stren"ih and productive enemies. The strcneth anil produc tive energies of slarery!

Tho means of nip. ply for iheso Stiiea will bo increased in Ihe same manner." How ready is Mr. Gilmer lo urgo Iho great argument for tho protective policy, when it can ho usPtlto fav or tlio protection and extension nf slavery. The annei-ation of Texas will 'opan a market for the manuf irltires and agricultural products of the non-slaveholding Stales !' And hero istaeAait tKrownout to Sorlhern cupidity!

And how much does this anti-tarilf nullilior savo for mo encouragement anu protection nf the mapu price of which was asserted, as I Imvu thu Vii'gnii,i'L'gij!ature,cluvuu years ug , would he raised lifiy percent, upon tho acquisition of 7' It is truu tho Constitution of 7'uxas gives lo the slavo breeding States of this Union a monopoly of its market lor thin kind of inatni factun ; but annexation, alone, can give per niaimut security lo ibis monopoly. "liul," continues Gov. Gihuer," )ou antimpile objections in tcgard to llio subject of slavery. This is in lecd, a subjQct of extreme delicacy, but It is nno on winch the annexation of Texas will haven palulary influence. Homo have Ihouht that the propoMtioh would endanger tho Union, t am of a dillerent opin ion. I behevo it will bring about a better understand ing of our relative rights and obligations. Slavery i one of those subjects whu h the people of Ihe slave holding Slites are content to leave wheru lhs (Jonsti- ! tulion of Ihe Union has left it. Thev ask for no new concessions to Iheir rights, guaranteed bv that inatru mcnt." The Constitution of the Union, Gov. Gilmer might to know, left slavery to live as long as it could and iodic, as it must, in the original Stales of this Un.on. liut there. ho fiiemls of annex i t io n aru not 'content' lo leave it, but woukl ex tend it over 'the largo and fertile territory ol Texas,' &1 then add the extension lo this al ready ridden Union. And Mis is asking 'no now concessions to their rights guaranteed by the Constitution I' I would gladly in ike further extract from tins Idler; and indeed give it entire, hut I mint forbear. It is an artful attempt to glvu to an nexation the character of a na ion d measure iiiq ofiaW, oven, to give permanence to the Uni on land may bu regarded as a sample of the manner in which the North is to ho addressed to secure ils support to the measure. Having considered tho, and it mo tive, I will dvvull a fuvv moments uu.ui thu odbe's of auneation or rather of an attempt at annoj;. ation. I sav attempt, bemuse I consider lute annexation, as entirely out of the quo-lion. Texas will never he united to this confederacy. There arc principles of repulsion which lorbld the possibility of a union. There may be an at tempt, either by an abuse of the trea'y making pew or, or an act of Congress, or both combined. Rut by whalsover moans it may ho attomtited, by how many soever agencies," direct or indirect tho moment the deed is done, there will be domon-trations of feeling winch tho mad-cap movers ol the scheme little dream of. Gov. Gilmer nlfecls to think tiiat tho excitement will be " salutary." He behoves that " it will bring about a better understanding of our relative rights and nbltgat s. And so do I. Such an uuuursianuino, imiepti, as snail reaeu lire but. torn of our Federal Compact taking hold of the foundations on which it rests silting thorough ly the whole matter of ihu " compromise of the Constitution " showing the extent of their vie lation by ih.) slave po.ver exposing the ctior mous encroachments of slavery, and its utter in capability with freedom and, above all, pi oviug, to demon.-(ration, what is assorted in the Ue.o lution I am considering that annex ition will "hImIisIi the .!!, by Iho constitution of a nw political !.,ui:!v. and thus breal: up thu fouud.i I'onsoi'our Fed.'
