State to take the subject of his note into con
eidention, with a view to such an arrangement
on the principle of !arbitration as may seem to
the government of the United States. to be the
most just. wise and expedient.
The undersigned takes advantage of this op
portunity to renew to the Hon. James Buchan-
NI de assurance of his highconsideration.
To the Hon. JAMES BUCHANAN. &C.
Mr Buchanan to Mr. Pachenhant.
DEPARTMENT OF STATE.
Washington, 4th Feb., 1840.
The undersigned, 'Secretareeof State of the
United States, has the honor to acknowledge
the receipt . of the note of Mt. Pakenham, her
Ihitannic Majesty s envoy extraordinary and
minister plerepotentiary, dated on the 10ih ulti
mo, by which he again proposes a reference of
the Oregon - question to arbitration. Under his
present propositom the powers sif the arbitrator
-weak) not. as in his last, be limited in terms to
the division of the territory between the parties,
but would extend to the question of their con
There is, however, a condition annexed to
this offer which exposes it to the same objection,
• i n point of fact, if not in form, which was promi
nently presented in the answered the undersigned
to Mr. Packenham'sproposal. This condition
i s eetbat if neither [party] should be found, in
the opinion okhe arbitratut, to possess a coin-
Floe tide to the whole territory, there should,
in t hat case, be assigned to each that portioneof
territory which would. in the opinion of the
arbitrating power. be called for by a jest op
preciatioe of the respective claims of each." If
the gotemment of the United States should con
sent to an arbitration upon such a condition, this
m i g ht, aad probably would, be construed into an
indinatiere if not a direct invitation to the arbi
lreter IQ divide the territory between the parties.
Were it possible for the President, under any
circumstances, to consent leo refer the subject to
=arbitration,, the title, and the title alone, detach
ed front every other consideration, is the only
question which could be submitted. If rfoton-
Anal to a sin,* point, so, strong is the naldrae
disposition ocarbitraiors to please both , patties,
that in - almost every instance whether of nation
al or individual controversies, they make a com
promising award. We have a memorable ex
maple of this in our last arbitration with Great
Netwitlistandine that the arbitrator, under the
items of Inc submission was clearly and expli
- oily confined to the decision of which was the
line of highlands described in the treaty of peace
of 1783, yet instead of. pursuing any range of
highlands whatever, he advised that the line
should run along the bed of a river, and actually
divided the territory in dispute b,etween the par
ties by "the middle of the deepest channel of the.
The undersigned might content himself, in
answer to the present proposition. with n refer
ence to the observatintis contained its his last
vote to :11r. Parkenhain of the 3d ultimo. hi
that. it was plainly intimated not only that there
are other conclusive reasons for declining die
proposition," independently: aC the one Whirli
Ind been prominently stated, kit it wasespress
ly asserted. as the belief of the President, '':hat
any attempt io refer this question to a third
power would only involve it in new difficulties."
The undersigned will, however, • proceed to
site a single reason which, apart from the in
trinsic difficulties Id sr-let-tin, a suitable arktrii
tor, :IS well as other considerations that might
he adduced, is rime:l'll:sive on the mind of the
President against a reference of this question to
arbitration, in any form which can be devised,
no matter aim( may be the diameter of the ar
bitrator—whether severeega, citizen or subject.
This reason isethat he tines not believe the ter
ritorial rights of this nation to be a proper sub
ject for althitratimi. It may be true, that, under
peculiar circumstances, if the interests at stake
were Fomparativel.v small, and if both parties
stood upon an equal footing, there might be no
insuperable objection to such a course.
But what is the extent of territory in dispute
on the present occasion ! It embraces nearly
thirteen degrees of latitude aking the northwest
mast of the Pacific. and stretches eastward to
the Summit of the Rocky mountains. Within
Os limits several powerful and prospercius States
of the Union may be embraced.' It lies conti
minus, on this continent, to the acknowledged
territory of the United States, and is (testier:cf.
at ao distant day, to be peopled by our citizens.
This territory presents the avenue through
%%beet the commerce of our western States can
he profitably conducted with Asia and the wes
tern coasts of this continent ; and its ports, the
only harbors belonging to the United States to
whitit'our numeroue whalers and other vessels
in that region can resort. And yet, vest as ace
its dimensions, it contains not a single safe and
commodious harbor from its stuithern extremity
until we approach the 49tli parallel of latitude.
It is fur from die intention of the undersigned
again to open the digression of the conflicting
claims of the two powers to the Oregon territo
ry. It is sufficient for him to state the continu
ed conviction of the President. that the United
States hold the , best title iii existence to the
whole of this territory. Linder this conyietion,
lie cannot consent to jeopard for his country all
the great interests involved, and by any possibi.
lite, however remote : to deprive the republic of
all the good harbors on the coast, by referring
the question to arbitration.
'Neither is the territory in dispute of eminl. nr
• nearly equal, value to the two powers. Whilst
it is invaluable to the United States, it is of com
paratively small importance to Great Britain.—
To her, Oregon would he but a distant colonial
posseseioreof doubtful value, and which, from
the natural progress Of human events, she would
not probably long enough enjoy to derive from
essential benefits ; whilst to the United States
O would become an integral and essential por
tion of the republic. The gain to Great Britain
she would never sensibly feel ; whilst die loss to
to the United States would be irreparable.
'l'lle undersigned is perfectly aware that sue),
considerations can have no bearing upon the
question of the title of either party. They are
Presented enlely-for the purpose of explaining
the views of the President in his refusal to adore
any measures which should withdraw our title
from the control of the government ands people
or the United States, and place it within the
discretion of any erbitratcr; no Matter how in
tellieent and respectable. -
, The President cordially concurs with the gee
ernment or Great Britain, in deeiring that the
present controversy may he amicably ailjusted.
Of this, he has given the strongest proof before
the whole world. He believes that, as there are
no two nations on the earth more closely bound
together by the ties of commerce, so there are
none who ought to'be more able or willing to do
each other justice, without the interposition of
The undersigned avails himself of this occa
sion to renew to Mr. Pakenham the assurance
01 his high consideration. JAMES BecemeAs.

following relation of the proceedings on the Ore
gon notice iron the Waskinginn Union :
The agony is.over.'and the debate on the ques
tion of notice, which has been conducted with
great, if not.nnrivalled ability; (in the opinion of
Mr. Adatns himself) before the Committee Of
the whole House since the sth of January last,
has now terminated, after more than.:7o speeches
were delivered. '1 he scene was animated and
interesting beyond description. It is the first
spectacle of this sort that we have ever witness•
ed. • The galleries were crowded beyond any
thik « have ever seen in Washington. One
circumstance we were extremely gratified to
discover. There was no violence of feeling, no
rancour of expression. There was interest with
out passion --the anxiety of suspense, without
any violation of the harmony of the House.
The House adjourned after this agitating spec
tacle, in good humor and in good order. we
congratulate our country upon the result. The
character of the tesolutiou is decided, as well as
conciliatory. The very strength of the heavy
majority with which it was carried (three to one)
Will add to the moral force which•it is destined
to exert upon the two countries. It goes forth
full of energy and full of hope. We cannot
doubt that a resolution of notice will pass the
Senate with promptitude and decision, and thus
add a new confirmation to the measures of the
President's message, anda new patentee to the
preservation of the rights and the peace of our
country. The following is the resolution, which
paased the Hoilse, by a vote of 163 to 54—anti
is now under consideration in the Senate :
Resolved by-the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives of the United States of .dmerica In
Congress assembled. That the President of the
United States cause notice to be given to the
aovemment of Great Britain that the convention
Ltween the United States of America and Great
ain, concerning the .territory on the northwest
coast of America west of the Stony or Rocky
mountains, of the sixth day of August eighteen
hundred and twenty seven, signed at London.
shall be annulled and abrogated twelve mouths
after giving said notice.
Resolved,That nothing herein contained is in
tended to interfere with the right and discretion
of the proper authorities of the two contracting
parties to renew or pursue negotiations for an
amicable settlement of the controversy respecting
the Oregon territory.
TIIs MrsTssious CLIPPER...—The Clipper
which had been chartered to run expresses
across the Atlantic, it is supposed. will carry
out some despatches relative to . the Oregon
question, probably the important correspon
dence presented to Congress on Saturday. and
of which we gave a synopsis this 'morning.—
The New York Sun says:
"We understand that the mysterious fast
sailing Clipper pilot boat, to which we alluded
yesterday, sails for Liverpool on Monday.—
Considerable excitement has been created by
this movement, as much on the account of the
nautical ability of the crew as, the rumors cur
rent in relation to the expedition. We learn
she is go out and return as speedily as possi
ble, expecting to arrive in Liverpool about the
26th inst.. and return immediately. It is also
said that she takes out despatches for govern
ment or some of the Forei , m Ministers at
‘Vashington. and heavy bets are made on the
duration of the voyage out and home, allowing
two days detention at Liverpool to receive des
patches fortondon. She will have a (lose
race home with the steamship leaving on the
4th of March. We learn that the celebrated
clipper. pilot boat William J. Romer, is the
vessel selected for the expedition, and an im
mense sum is said to have been guarantied to
her Captain and Crew for making the trip out
and home within a stipulated time."
