Resolved, by the Senate and House of Representatives, That in the name and behalf of the people of the State of Vermont, we do protest against the annexation of Texas to the United States, as a measure inconsistent with, and in direct hostility to, the Constitution of the United States, and fraught with the most serious danger to the well-being, integrity, and existence of the Union.

Resolutions froin the Senate :

Resolved, by the Senate and House of Representatives, That the practice of nations, of resorting to arins, for the settlement of international disputes, has no tendency to secure the rights of the injured party, and often gives the aggressive nation an opportunity of repeating the abuse, and by claiming the right of power, of subjugating such injured parly to its ruthless sway.

Resolved, That we regard arbitration as a recognized substitute for war. That this method of adjusting international disputes, extinguishes no right, it sacrifices no interest, it startles no prejudice, it is adapted to the present state of the world, and is consistent with sound policy.It is a measure levelled to the comprehension of the people, and com. mends itself to all. It is simple, practicable, and likely to succeed.

Resolved, That a system of adjudication founded on a well digested code of international laws, and administered by a Standing Court, or Board of Mutual Reference, is preferable to the occasional choice of umpires, who act without the restraints of established principles or law's.

Resolved, That it is our earnest desire that the Government of the United States would, at the earliest opportunity, take measures for obtaining the consent of the powers of Christendom to the establishment of a General Convention or Congress of Nations, for the purpose of settling the principles of international law, and of organizing a High Court of Nations, to adjudge all cases of difficulties which inay be brought before them by the mutual consent of two or more nations.
