i Tbe Gfie^ not being based on party politics,
will lend its support to the Executive in every in-
stance where the measures adopted by him are like-
to the community; but when

the interests of Texas, or calculated to delay our
march to national prosperity—-which is and must be
onward—^or contrary to the Constitution, it will be

in a now country whero the laws are con-
tinually undergoing the change incident to legisla-
tive experiment, that R is the doty of all to aid in sus-
taining the executive power, no matter by whoni the
chair may be filled, and in establishing the stability
government; but at the same time bearing in
mind that all usurpations on the part of the Execu-
J&Kt of the rights, liberties or privileges of the cjtizms
must «ver ws most streüuoufjy upposed.
