The Committee, to whom was referred cerlain resolutions of the legislature ol Indiana, condemning "any interference in the domestic institutions of the slaveholding states," having had the same under consideration, make their report as follows:

The committee in examining these resolutions have not been able to understand what construction the legislature of Indiana would give 10 the term, "interference,? which they have applied to the action of the legislatures of the general and state governments, in relation to the “domestic institutinos of the slaveholding states," and which they have , condemned. The term, in itself, is indefinite, and the legislature have not thought proper to define and limit fit, or to say what action on the part of other legislatures may amount to ihe interference which they deprecate. The commitiee therefore believe this legislature are not in a oondition to express their as ent or dissent to the propositions contained in the resolution. And besides, if any interpretation, which the committee are able to conjecture, were given to these resolutions, !hey cannot perceive that any action is demanded. So far as the committee are informed, it is the universal doctrine of all classes in the country, as well as the unanimous opinion of this legislature, that neither the Congress of the United States, or the legislatures of the free states have any constitutional or legal control over the institution of slavery in any of the slaveholding states; and that if slavery is at any time abolished, it must be solely by the act of the legislatures of the several states, where it exists, or by the voluntary act of emancipation on the part of the sla veholders. The committee believe this legislature are not called upon to assert a doctrine, which, so lar as they know, no one denies, or to condemn an interference, to which no one claims the right.

If the legislature of Indiana intend that an expression of the sentiments of this or any other state legislature, in regard to the power and duty of the general government relating to slavery in the territories under its control, or their remonstrance against the annexation to the union of further territory, where slavery exists, is an "interference with - the domestic institutions of the slaveholding states," the committee in

that view of the subject, are not able to perceive, that this legislature are called upon to reassert their often expressed sentiments. This legislature have already freely expressed, and sent forth to the world the views, which are believed to be entertained by the people of Vermont. The committee therefore believe, that no action is demanded in relation to the resolutions of the legislature of Indiana, and recommend the adop: tion of the following resolution.

S. SWIFT, for Committee. November 7, 1839.

Resolved, by the General Assembly of the State of Vermont, that they are not aware that the Congress of the United States, or the legis. latures of any of the states, or any persons in their behalf claim any constitutional control over or legislative "interference with, the doméstic institutions of the slave holding states ;” and that, having franhly expressed to the world their views on all the other points of the subject of slavery, on which they deem it important to express them, they do not perceive that any action is demanded of them on the resolutions of the legislature of Indiana on that subject.
