Gen. Bustamente was in fiifor! of compelling

the. Assembly assented to thei report of the ma.

no allusion to the f ueign aflairsof the republic.

strangely that the: Cabinet of Washington was

Texas so far even as to restore the hew State
to Mexico, ' flattering unction ! ' i

MY BOY. ' '
I have little a bright haired boy, j
With eyes of blue-bell hue, j
And cheeks as velve ty and fresh ;
As roses bathed with dew.
His lips as fragrant seem to mine,
As strawberries in May ; j '
And with n Hsping voice he sings1,
Hurra ! hurra! for Clay ! j
f i 1
'Three summers only hath he seen,
And when I hear his voice, '
So full of melody and glee,
It makes my heart rejoice. j
file sings full many" a merry tunei
I And old familiar way,
!But 'mong them all he loves the best,
To sing hurra for Clay ! ; ;
" One said to him, " Don't sing that song,
Mjr boy ; 'tis quite too late: j
Hurra for Polk and Dallas now.j
For Clay is out of date." j
The boy looked up perplexed and sad, 1
As if-he meant to say, j
He's good, and I may; sing for him.
Hurra ! hurra for Clay. j
Yes, child ; he is as worthy now
As in his- palmiest days, j
When voices joined the shoat and song
That now forget to; raise :
Those voices will be b.eard agai,
And join some other day j
As loud, as long, as bold and free
As when they sang for Clay.
Thatjimpressed with this conviction, if
becomes pur imperative duty to hold out
the. right, ilia nJ of - fellowship to our breth
ren in the Northern States, and to assure
them of our ardent desire to cooperate
with them in effecting a connection with
an empire; where. tbe advantages of liber
ty, restrained within due limits, are fully
