Nothing, surely, could be more clear and emphatic, unless, perhaps, the statement of the same position by the chairman of Foreign Affairs in this House.
On 1he 3d of February 1845, he introduced his resolutions, and spoke in explanation of them; and, on the subject of the boundary, said:
“The stupendous deserts between the Nueces and the Bravo rivers are the natural boundaries between the Anglo Saxon and the Mauritanian races. There ends of the valley of the west.
There Mexico begins. Thence, beyond the Bravo, begins the Moorish people, and their Indian associates, to whom Mexico properly belongs; who should not cross that vast desert if they could, as we, on our side, too ought to stop there, because interminable conflicts must ensure our going south, or their coming north, of that gigantic boundary.
While peace is cherished, that boundary will be sacred. Not till the spirit of Conquest rages, will the people on either side molest or mix with each other; and whenever they do, one or the other races must be conquered, if not extinguished.
“Here, Mr. Chairman, we see again an offical declaration of this boundary made to quiet all fear that our relations with Mexico would be disturbed by claiming to the Rio Grande! And we see, also, the spirit of prophecy proclaiming, in tones of solemn warning, that while peace is cherished, the desert will be held sacred as the boundary! that not till the spirit of conquest rages will the people on either side of it molest or mix each other! Sir, it is because peace is no longer cherished, that the boundary is not held sacred. It is because the barbarous spirit that animated this declaration, could still have controlled the councils of the President, we should now be in the enjoyment of peace. But mark how the lapse of a few months bring with it a change of opinons to suit the changing purposes of party and of men. We were called upon, a few days since, by this same chairman, to print some extra copies of a report, made at the last session by him, on the subject of the Mexican war. It had fallen dead upon the attention of the country, but by the vote to print, it was elevated to a degree of distinction which alone entitles it to attention; and I accordingly have run through its voluminous pages. And I was not surprised to find a paragraoh upon the subject of boundary, so entirely contradictory of every thing contained in the above exact, that it worthy of being collated and contrasted. It is on the 44th page, and is as follows:
“President Polk had no constitutional right to stiop short of the Bravo; and, in truth, the province of Texas extended to that river by territorial configurarion, which nature itself has rendered the limitary demarcation of that region.”
