Botta?Immense Crowd* and Intenao Excitement. The largest and most important meeting which the whigs have had for years in this city, took place at the Tabernacle laat evening. The ostensible purpose was the celebration of the birthday of Henry Clay, but the real intention was to muster their forceH and take ground for the Presidential ranipaign. We have seen the Tabernacle tolerably well crammed on various occasions, but never so densely crowded, as it was last night. There could not have been more than twenty additional persons introduced, unless they intended to occupy places on the shoulders of others. The galleries had been reserved for ladies, and they presented a most imposing array ol female loveliness, elegance and fashion. At either side of the organ hung suspended two flags, one inscribed "4th Ward Clay Club, 1844," with a well executed portrait of Mr. Clay}" the other "3J Ward Democratic Clay Club," with another portrait of the "Great Kentucky Orator." A large banner hung between, on which was inscribed "7th Ward Democratic Clay Club, founded 1841," and the motto "Justice to Harry of the West." This banner was surmounted with a li. berty cap. The "Capitol" of the Union appeared in the distance, and in the foreground the "Millhov nf fh/? Sln?hor?" ninnnfpri An n with some appropriate devices. Another banner from "The Ladies of- the Eighth Ward to the Patriotic Whiga," with the motto "None but the brave de. serve the Fair," was also suspended from one of the pillars of the spacious edifice. Shortly after 7 o'clock, the vast meeting was organized by the appointment ol Alex. W. Braofoho, Esq. as Chairman, with the following additional officers:? Vice-Presidents. 1st Ward, J. N. Reynolds and John M. Flint, 3.1 " Revo C. Hance and Georgo K. Nesbit, 2d " William Dodge and Jamea Von Ostrand, 4th " Jaines II. Braine and Charles Chamberlia, 6th " John C. Hamilton and Galen T.

After the meetiug had been thua organized, The Cbajrman said that lie had the pleasure of announcing the presence of the lion. Morris Franklia. (Tremendous applause.) It was then moved, seconded and carried by acclamation, that Mr. Franklin be invited to take a seat on the right of the chair. Mr. Franklin accordingly made his appearance on the platform, and was greeted by the most enthusiastic and prolonged applause. After its subsidence, he thus addressed tne meeting:? Fellow Citizens For this Crush evidence of your confidence and regard, permit me to return to you my siucere and grateful acknowledgments ; and in the sincerity of anovcitlowiug heart, to renow my allegiance with yon in the great and glorious contest in which the whigs of this country are at this time engaged. (Ureat applause.) And it is indecdencouraging in these days of political apostucy, when mitny ate filing on our right, and multitudes wavering on our left, to find that there is a noble band yet remaining,who are determined to guard ourThermopo, iy.i! against tiie assaults of professing friends within, and open and avowed enemies without. (Cheers) And although in the recent contest from which we have just emerged, we were scattered like sheep without a shepherd, yet when the rallying cry will sound throughout our borders?when the bugle note shall be heard throughout our land, and the swelling chorus of exulting thousands shall animate the heart and nerve the soul, we will again present an unbroken phalanx, against which the wave* of political despotism will dash in rain. We will say to them in the language of inspiration, "Thus far shalt thou come, and no iarther." (Tremendous applause) Ves, fellow citizens, in the cause ot Henry Clay?(tremendous cheering)?in the cause of that man whom we all delight to honor, we are one and indivisible, and when the time arrives, we will plant his standard before our army, and then the proud eagle of our country will again soar in her native majesty, bearing in her beak the noble motto of our democracy?" Excrlsior-Ex cehior." (Great cheering.) Again, I thank you?I thank you. Mr. Franklin then cat dowu amid great cheering. The following ode wax then sung by Mr. Bci.i., assisted by the Sacred Music Society. ODF, Jlir?"Hail Columbia." COMTOiF.n BT 0. 0 STUART, til)., NEW VORK.

The Ciniasisn then said- 1 have now the honor of introducing to you the Hon. Jours M. Boris of Virginia.? (Thunders or applause) Mr IIotts stepped forward and was received with indescribable enthusiasm. The whole multitude rose rn mamr, and the shouting, waving of hats,and every possible demonstration of applause was continued fur some minutes There was then a pause, but it wss at once broken by a stentorian cry of "Three cheers for Botts," which were given of course with doah-nlng efleet. Alienee was at ln?t obtained, and Mr. IIotts thus spoke, at first In a low tone, hut afterwards so as distinctly to be hesrd throughout the building I present myself belore yoti, fcllow-eitheii* and brother whig* ol New-York, in redemption of a pledge that was made bv my friends in Washington, during rny absence Irorn that city, that I would lie present and participate with you in the proceeding* ol this evening. I came here neglecting, perhaps, the most interesting question, sive that of the success of the Whig party, to which I have ever been call*,! on to givemv attention?(cheers)? not from any pen-o ial interest that was to result to me, but in vindication of ih ? right! of the people to a full, E NE NE free unJ untremme.iloil repiesentatiou in the t 'ongreM of the Unite J States, and I have come anions you personally unknowu?a stranger rather hoping to entitle myself by service heiuatier to be rendered to the great whig cause, to your favorable eonsidr ration, than promi-iug or dating to trope that 1 had secured it by any thing that 1 had dune heretofore. And if I do not aland abashed and overwhelmed by the enthusiastic reception that 1 have met with here tonight, it is only bccauko I know that 1 uui among niricls una leel us much at home as if I were indeed in my native land, beloved Virginia?(tremendous Cheering.) beloved, i say, and beloved she is, for with ail hrr laulU?with all her errors-with ell liur misfortunes w hich has fallen thick and heavy upon her in the last lew years, she is still the land ot Washington?of Jefferson?of Madison?of Henry?and last, though not least,ol him whose birth day we now assemble to celebrate. -(great applause, and three cheers lor Virginia, followed " iiinectauvK more.") True aids 1 too true it is that she has bucoflR byeword and a repiouch amongst her sister Stutes by the infidelity and treachery of one of her sons, blame not the State for that !? All that I claim?all that I set up a claim for in the whig cause for is, that It was one of the sons of Virginia who first denounced the traitor, and discharged what he faithfully believed to be his duty in endeavoring, at least, to bring that puuishment upon his guilty head which his treiohery demanded aud the constitution prescribed (tremendous cheering.) [Here some one near the door called out "speak louder?wo can't hear a word here !"J 1 am very sorry for it, said Mr. D.; but it is rather my misfortune than my fault (loud cheers ) 1 am ut present laboring under an excessive hoarseness, ot which it has been impossible for me, notwithstanding all my shorts thiough- I out the day, to get rid (cheers.) Follow-citizens, we have been often told that a crisis had arrived in the affairs of our government, uud more than ever has that been true; but in my humldo judgment, never since the formation ol our government has there been such mi important crisis as that which now presents itscli to the consideration of the people of this country. To our revolutionary sires belonged the task, and most faithfully, did they discharge it?el establishing the independence oJ America and of framing the government under which w e live. To us aud upon us, their children, has devolved, il not the more important, at least the more responsible task ol maintaining and perpetuating that liberty which was handed down to us by them us a rich legacy unto their issue, and of preserving inviolate to latest tintra those institutions which were lruiued.not for their,but our benefit. miu mc i|?chiiuii ii, nuvv can wi) uf m succeed in accomplishing thin nil important task. h'or the last fifteen yours the reign of destruction?il 1 may tiro the term? the reign of destruction has prevailed. A party has hod the possession of the government during that period, whose whole and sole object appears to have been to pull down and destroy all thai was raiuablu iu the institutions of the country. Destruction has been the order of the day, until at last we have been brought to that point whuu it becomes the duty of every reflecting, sober, wise and discreet man in the country?to take this subject in hand for the promotion of their! rights and liberties, I shall in the course of the addiess which I pur pose to muke this evening, indulge in no porsonal re flee tions either upon parties or individuals. (A voice?" I'm sorry tor that!") i'ersouul reflections perhaps might well be made, but I shall abstain from them. 1 am content to rest this great question, upon which we liuvo now iu a few months to decide, u[>on public measures?upon the policy ol'the country?such as has prevailed during the last fifteen years, au'd such as will pruvail, should wo be fortunate enough, as no doubt wo shall be, in the ensuing election. (Great cheering ) What aro tliu true issues before the people now I What are the great points on which the two parties in this country ore now divided I The whig party proposes measures calculated to relieve the country from the ditliculties and disasters through which it has recently passed? u reform in tho currency?a tariff for revenue, with incidental protection to all the great interests of the country?(great cheering)?to the several branches of domestic trade and industry?a distribution of the proceeds of the sales ol the public lands. (Great applause.) Our opponents propose in the stead of those measures, that half tried and most thoroughly condemued scheme, the tub treasury?(laughter)?free trade, if any body can understand the term?I am sure I can't (renewed laughter)?and a squandering, a wasteful and extravagant squandering of the proceeds of the sales of the public lauds by the geueral government. And it is a little remarkable that in no part of this broad laud do you find a single objection raised in any quarter against the expediency of any one of the measures proposed by the whig party. All the objoctions are what ii called " constitutional objections" (u laugh) Aye, constitutional objections; taised, too, by a party that have never failed, when they thought it would advance their interests, to trample on the constitution and to violate all lav (thunders of applause). They cannot find constitutional authority for the incorporation ot a bank?they cannot find constitutional authority for a protective tariil" ?they cannot find constitutional authority fur the distribution of the proceeds of the sales ot the public lands? but they can find constitutional authority lor an insurrection Rnd rebellion (applause.) They can find constitutional authority to dislrunchise a State ol its whole representation, and they can find constitutional authority to trample upon a law ol Congress and create representation in violation of that law. (Renewed and enthusiastic cheers ) Mr. Botts here went en to speak at some length ot the importance and pressing necessity of printing the constitution in a form for universal circulation?to lie read by everybody, and taught in the public schools, like the Lord's Prayer, to which only it was, he said, second in importance. (Cheers.) He then supposed the case of a locoforo demagogue haranguing against a United States lt-,,lr BnJ Uin. 1-1,..- ...7?... ...K? I..,.I .*,..1 studied the constitution. The voter thus informed might say in reply to the assertion of the othur, that such an institution was unconstitutional-tbat the first Congress in 1791, composed chiefly of the Iranian oi the conitltution, and amongst them the 'father of his country," pawed a bank hill. (Tremendous applause.) In IRI1 again It was submitted to Congress, and passed the House oi Kepieaentativca, being tost in the Senate by a tie vote, but decided by the casting vote of Cieorge Clinton, the Vice i'rcaident. The voter might say, " I gee such men us James Madison and Henry (day deciding 011 the constitutionality of a United States Dank, and they, I take it, are aa good judges as you can pretend to lie, Mr. Ileniugogue, or Mr. Orator, or Mr. Democrat, or whatever vou please to call yourself." (Laughter and cheers.) I tmd that these men, after they had at ono time opposed it, grown older and wiser, saw the'neceosjtv of tins measure, and in 1816 they changed their ground and sustained the constitutionality of a hank ol the United States?(loud cheers.) ? 1 flnd else that the voter could go on and say "that when the question was submitted to tho Supreme Court oi the United States, the venerable John Marshall, then at its head, (and a purer and wiser man never was found in uny oountry,) that Court decided in 1818, that the law Incorporating a Rank of the United States, was in accordance with tha provisions of the Constitution; and this opinion they expressed in terms perhaps never used liefore or since by that highl legal tr|buna]?that "it was the unani moos and decided opinion of the Siuprutr.e Court of the United States"? (cheers ) He might go farther and say that in MM this Bank was rachartered by both branches of a democratic Congress, and its consti tntionallty recognised and acknowledged by the corner-stone, the pillar and the arch of modern democracy?Andrew Jackson?(cheers and laughter.) But the demagogue might contend that the power was not expressly granted by the constitution. But that argument was absurd, because if Congress had the power to levy duties and imposts they had the power to prescribe how they should he tuken cure of and disbursed (Cheers) Besides, Congress had the power lo coin money and regulate the value thereof. And ut>ove all, it had the power to make all laws necessary to cany the foregoing ptov isions into execution. But the democrat might then say, " Oh, hut it lias power only to make such law* as are indispensably necessary." (Laughter) ? Well, then, it might he replied thut that is an interpolation?there ia no such word as " indispensably" in the clause of the constitution in ijuestion. But granting them the benefit of the interpolation What then I Why the unconstitutionality ot their darling Sub-Treasury scheme was ut once established. Kor as there were various modes of cll'ectlng the same object?lirst by an United States Bank, then again by the Sub-Treasury scheme, and then again by State Banks, the Sub-Treasury plan could not be indispensably necessary. (Chuera) ? Hut he (Mr. B) was willing to rest the whole in the experience of the last -Id years as to the utility of a U. S Bank, llewouldappu.il to the experience of Col. ltirhard M. Johnson himself, or to that of John C. Culhoua, who in 1810 supported and voted lor a U. S. Bank ; and who us late as in 1*31 claimed to bo thcfather of iillank of the U. States (hisses ) He (Mr. B.) was not fond of reading upon such occasions?but he Jeonld not refrain from reading a short passage from .VIr. Calhoun's speech in 1831. Mr B. then read the passage, in which Mr Culhouii said?'-Unless you give the highest practical mil. formity to the value of hank notes, so long as you receive them, and treat them as money, you violate that provlson of the Constitution, which provides that the curreney shall be uniform throughout the United States. There is no other alternative. 1 repeat you must divorce the government entirely from the hanking system, and if not, you /are bound to incorporate a 'bank, as the only sale an! effuctunl means of giving stability and uniformity to the currency." (Uourl cheering) And yet this is the gentleman by whose party wo are assailed as federalists, because we stand firm by our principles?principles w hich he thus himself so fully en. dorsed (Cheers) Mr. McDulbe in his celebrated pamphlet of IHH.as "one of the people," said?" you may impose duties and draw from the hard earnings of tho laboring man every dollar that can be spared from the means of hit actual subsistence, for the most unjust and oppressive?the most tyrannical and iniquitous purposes -, and yet no man can complain ol the constitutional jiower which is vested in Congress in the exercise of its wisdom and discretion in carrying out the provisions of tho Constitution." This was liis remark after proving the constitutionality of a Bank of tho United States. Mow Mr. MeDufHc's sentiments have changed ,-inco then 1 need not tell you. (Cheers) As to the question of a protective tariff, Mr. B said he would not occupy tho time of the audience in discussing it with the demagogue whom he hail supposed to beharangaing the p-ople And why 1 Because lie regarded an ounce of fart an worth a pound of theory.? [Mere some slight degree of confusion was occasioned by aeryof "turn nim out," referring to some one nonr the door, who had attempted same interruption. But in a moment or two order was restored | He would only direct i attention to the eiperienr.e of the past. I.et them go back to 1*80, and look at the law passed by the framers of the constitution.whose preamble read?"VVbereas, it is neces sary for the support ol government, and for the protection of home industry, that duties should be levied, be it enacted," and so forth (Loud cheers ) Such were the views "f the fathers of this republic, whose memories lire cast in the shade hy the spurious democracy that has risen in the country within the last few years. (L'/tidt beers) ? Trace it down, and you cannot find any man who has (Hied the Presidential chair, wl o lias not recognised the con stitutional power and expediency ol a protective tariff? When the great battle was (ought ou the principle* of W YC :w YORK, SATURDAY I protection in lull?lor I will hurry and,come down to ih.it period?Ilenty flay stood then an the champion ol the protective policy." (Croat applause) Who, then, he would tuk, followed in the footstep* ot their illustrious predecessor I (Laughter und cheer* ) Who were the men that then looked up to Henry (day lor information!? Who were they that then stood an Henry flay itood, and voted with him' Tell it not in (iath? publish it nut in iu? mri-eii ni askcioii, lor it would not lie believed by the democracy of the present day. Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Utireii, and Thomas liartu Denton were the men ? (Laughter and cheers.) These were the men that then recoguizedithe constitmionality and expediency, the wisdom and the necessity of a protective tariff. Trace the history of the country from '-.'ti to 'II, and look ut its condition By tlio operation of tlio taritf, affording encouragement and employment tr domestic labor, gradually, daily, hourly, he might Hay, the country improved in its condition in every aspect?increased in population and respectability and energy, not only meeting the. expenditures ot the government, but paying oil'ten millions annually of the public debt, which was finally dischuiged in 183S. in the year 18:17, when Mr. Van lluren first went into utiice, the government for the first time contracted a debt in the time of peace. Then the revenue began (o diminish?business (lagged in all its departments?every arm of industry was disabled?thousands were throw n out of employment?tlio energies of the people were paiuly7.ed?commercial confidence was broken?even the credit of the government was degraded, and when a commissioner went to Kngland to negotiate a loan on tile credit of the general government, ho was hissed and hooted slid almost kicked out ol the country. (Laughter ) Fortunately for the country it hud a whig ( ongress, which passed a healing measure? 0110 ineusure in that great system of legislation which tlicy proposed- and that was n taiifl' lor protection, (t 'lieeis) And w hat was the result .' Immediate and instant prosperity lollowed on its heels. (Renewed eheenng) Commerce revived?laborers found employment?capital also found employment?confidence between man and mail was restored?the credit of the government revived ?those bonds that could not he sold in the maikit (or '.>7 and Oo per cent were run up to 118. (Loud cheers ) What was the condition of the country now in comparison with what it wus then I lie did not ask such an intelligent audience as that. Mr. U. then went on to spe.?k of the distribution ol the proceeds of the sales ot the public lands He alluded to tnc decision ot the Supreme Court ol the United btutes in the case of Jacktun against Clarke anil olhtit ill 1838. The whigs claimed these proceeds as a trust found to held by the general governnv nt for the severul States. Rut it was vulling to yield the legal claim, lie lusted the whole ([uertUon on the claim in the Constitution which provides that Congress "shall have the power to diipose of and make all needful laws and regulations respecting the territory and oilier property belonging to the United btutes " He then alluded to the case of liem ml Lafayette on whom the nation, on unn ni i,,? ?.-? i in the tullness ot its gratitude lor Ins eminent und mdispensihle service* during thu revolution, determined to bestow sonic substantial token of in regard. 'Miey had not thu Constitutional power to vote liini uny of the public money, but Congress gave him filly thousand acres ' oi thu public lauds, because they had tltc pow er to dispose of that, and the vote ivus sanctioned by Mr. Jeli'erson himself. (Loud cheers.) but modern democracy?aye, modern democracy?spurious and false democracy (said Mr. Botts with peculiar bitterness)?I do not apply my words or language to the great mass of the people of the democratic party, who ure, I believe, as liouest us you or J, but who have been misled by ignoiant and designing demagogues. 1 speuk el' the heads of thu party, and I make no exception with them. (Tremendous cheering ) This false and spurious democracy has recently discovered that there is no constitutional power in Congress to dispoRe oi these proceeds. Why did they not make the discovery helote the measure beeame one of the leading mensurcs ot the Whig party '! Because it was the r< suit of the genius, the wisdom and the patriotism of Henry ('lay. ((treat cheering.) And becuuse its adoption would benefit eve. y man throughout the I nion. ((ii eat,enthusiastio and tremendous cheers.) There was another question on w hich Congress found they had the power el stripping the States. They had I ioigutten Van Bureu's voice in 1 M2t?, ami all the provision o( this same document that 1 desire to distribute, amongst the people. What is the language ot thu Constitution on that question : " The time, place and manner oi holding elections, shall he prescribed in each plucu , but Congress shall have the power by law to make or alter such regulation, except as to thu place for electing Senators,"? that is in making the whole or to alter and to modify any part thereof; ami at the iotination ot the Cougirss the ground was taken by Mr. Madison himself, that it was indispensable to tiie formation ot the government to do tins-, lor he said the time must arrive w hen one part of this Union must get the power of the other in each State The word ge> >y miindr ring w as not then in vogue, us it is now. (Tremendous laughter and vociferous cheering.) in a Idiuoii, lie sai<', the sta't a may refuse it and throw eft the government. The whig Congress of Ibli did it. They found ( 'Bptain Tyler at that session racing lor it. (Hoars of laughter ) He signed the hill, hut he tiled his protest against it in the Department of State ; yes. under nis solemn oath ofottice, and then he went point blank against it alterivards; and the Oemurrutic party seized hold of it, and they denied ita constitutionality, notwithstanding they said it always should he. Vet some of the States, at that tiinc elected by the general ticket, and they refused to obey, and all were iu disi tticta under their own State law. So I proclaim it, the government provided for us by the fathers ot our Constitution, has been revolutionized ; for we have not the govern men* now acting as the Congress ot the United States ? (cheering) ? ami there are twenty men there who have no more claim* to be there than any gentleman in this Hall. (Laughter.) Let us see how it ix. Geoigia sUcted her member* under her State law and sent un eight representative* to the House ; shortly alter that law was passed a whig came into jiower and then the new law, a* was ritpi-okud, was recognized by the legislature that came into power-they had already seut up eight member* under the State law by the general ticket system.? Suppose every other State in the Union had occupied just the same position us Georgia under the general ticket, what would have be-n the spectacle presented I You would have two hundred and twenty two elected under the State law ; and two hundred and twenty-two elected under the general ticketwhat would have been the consequence of this I each of those two classes of representatives?would they be recognized by the Sonate 1 There would be a curious sort el clashing of interests and under the *line Congress ; in such a state of thing* what would have become of this constitution w IhCIi declare* ihat the law of the United States on this particular topic shall be the law of the land I Now, God knows twenty votes appointed under such a construction ol the law ex ercise an undue influence in the deliberation* ol Congress, und therefore the system ol' election of which I complain, demands to be remedied. (Cries ol hear, hear.) But, fellow citizens, there i* another question and other parties in this country to which I desire to call your attention? there is the war party?and there is the peace party, too? there is a party in.this country, whose end and a|m is to Involve tis in a war tor party purposes. 1 ask you my friends are you prepared to go to war ??are you prepared, 1 say, to go to war with any power, strong, or feeble, for paity ends I?or lor the vindication and protection of the national property at the North F.aatern Boundary, as fust made by that party, in the Ashlmrton I treaty. An opportunity of negociation was ofl'ered at that time and pending the question, war was the cry?war was tne cry I repeat; but mv friends that uuestion was adjusted by a whig Mantle. (Tremendous entering ) I do not mean to approvo or condemn that Treaty; it gave us tieace ; but i think we neither gained nor lost much by the Ashbuton truaty, except that we have saved our honor (Loud ami prolonged cheering ) But I shall bring you to the next question on which the war party sent out the cry ?the Oregon question ?(cheering)?when tlmt question was first mooted, "war," "war," resounded through the hills of Congress, aye "war" " war" to the kniic. We will fight for it says Thomas Harte Benton?(laughter) ? Yea, my friends, we will light lor it, but not while it can be settled by amicable negotiation?(rapturous chcers)when all lails, there is not an American heart but will light?(Tremendous und continued applause)-? , and no American would propose to light till all failed (hear, hear.) This ninie attempt has been made to embarrass the negotiation, just at the moment there wus a probability ot negotiation, on tills great question with the present British Minister, Mr. I'akenham; yes, that is, the moment they select to pass a resolution that the term of the British occupation of Oregon should cease t but thank God, wo have a whig Senate, and that question is set at rest- (loud cheering ) And now, now, there is a greater question and a more mtIoiis question?ono which strikes deeply ut the root ami loumlationof our government?one that is not only calculated, but can't fail to stir up society from it*|tuundution and wako this Union to its very centre - I mean the projected annexation of Texas It is not the annexation of Texas to the Uuited States, but the United State* to Texas ?(laughter.) 'This is a question in my judgment the magnitude of which it is difficult to comprehend the conseiinences of which no man can foresee. This question must lead to an immediate or ultimate disruption of this Union (sensation.) 'I lie measure has got its origin in land speculations ; and it is enough for me to know that the Union ol these State* would he placed in jeopardy?they would he placed in jeopardy I repeat? lam a union mm-(tremendous applause) I t.m not a Southern man with Northern btelings-(Inughte.i) but I am a Southern man with national feelings -(eoriletou* cheering)?nnd if it should lull to my lot to be saciiSced oil any politics! question that may arise, God grant that it may be in defence of the Union of thu States?(prolonged and reiterated cheering nnd applause for several minutes) This treaty has been negotiated, let me tell you, already, and it will soon be presented to Congress in ? very imposing form by Mr. Tyler. (Lotid laughter ) .Mr. Tyler has made up n lorm, whether we shall take Texas in the Union, or let It go to Great Britain. (Laughter! I do not mean to say that Mr. Tyler's piedeliction in favor of annexation convince* m? ? (fauirhtei! I would miulrr inmn nlhor ^r,nr.-?,..u? before I would consent to take it ourself; nor am I e<[iinlly afraid of British acquirement. (l-otid cheering.) A* I before observe!,this is not the annexation of Texas to the United States, but of the United States to Texas?for wo would identify our policy with Texas, and not Texas with OHM. We should iiy annexation (irM niiimc the debts of Texas inj thi* age of constitutional reform.((. lighter.) The United Stabsi would have to pay the debts ol Texas by admitting her into the I nlon.
