A message from the Senate, by Mr. Terwilliger, Secretary:

Mr. Speaker: I am directed to inform the House of Representatives that the Senate has adopted the following preamble and joint resolutions, in the adoption of which I am instructed to ask the concurrence of the House of Representatives, to-wit:

WHEREAS, In the execution of the coercive policy now practiced by the British Government in Ireland, several American citizens have been arrested and imprisoned without having formal charges made against them, but upon the vague allegation of being "suspects," without indictment or arraignment before any tribunal or other process of law, thus making punishment precede conviction of crime, a system in conflict with justice, repugnant to advanced civilization, and discourteous and insulting to a friendly Nation; and,

WHEREAS, The victims of this injustice are in every instance citizens who formerly were subjects of Great Britain, but transferred their allegiance to the United States, thus making it apparent that a spirit of malicious persecution, because of such change of allegiance, underlies these outrages; and,

WHEREAS, Under the Constitution and laws of the United States, all citizens, native and foreign born, stand upon an equality and enjoy equal rights, among which is the right, if charged with a violation of law in any country with which the United States holds

trial under the laws of such country: and this fundamental principle has always been asserted and maintained by our Government, and is in fact the corner stone upon which rests our marvelous National growth and development; therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate of the State of Illinois, the House of Representatives concurring herein, That it is the duty of the General Government, through its Chief Executive, its Congress, and its foreign ministers, to demand the speedy trial or unconditional release of the American citizens now in prison, and to declare in the most emphatic manner that the protection of the Republic shall be extended to all its citizens abroad who are not convicted of violation of law, and that the department of Government or official who fails in the discharge of such duty deserves censure and is unworthy of the confidence of the liberty-loving and law-governed American people.

Resolved, That our Senators and Representatives in Congress are hereby instructed to use their best efforts to secure, as soon as possible, such a recognition of the rights of American citizens abroad as will be consistent with our National dignity, and avert future capricious, arbitrary or unjust interference with them.

Resolved, That copies of the foregoing preamble and resolutions be forwarded immediately to the President, and our Senators and Representatives in Congress. Adopted by the Senate April 21, 1882.
