At 9 o'clock last night the
vote was taken upon the treaty of annexat-
ion deciding it in the negative by a vote
16 for and 35 against. Mr. Benton gave
notice that on tomorrow (Monday) he would
introduce a bill of annexation. From
what I learn it will not be acceptable

Mr. McDuffie has also introduced a
joint resolution based on the stipulations
of the treaty. Other projects will be presented
in the House immediately. On tomorrow

An effort will be made to rescind it.

the Union, Polk & Dallas have apparently
united the great body of the party (democratic)
