Monster Gun for America.
A monster gun has just been manufactured by'
Messrs. Forsyth and Preston, of Liverpool, which
is intended to replace the one which tut rst on board
one df the American l‘'ar Steamers, a. short time

several other official personages. It is made of
Mailable iron, is 12 feet long anti weighs 11 tons

The above is from Wilmer's Liverpool (Eng
land) News Letter,' of March 20th. Capt. Stock

dealt out by his 'experiments•,' must needs repeat
his fully. But the worst aspect of the affair is, that
the Government must send to England for the gun.

These declarations were elicited more
particularly by President Polk's Inaugu
ral Address, and especially that passage
of it, in o hich the claps of this country
to the Oregon Territory are put forth in
such unequivocal terms. It would there
fore seem that the two Governments are
now at issue upon the Chegon Question,
and that each insists upon its claims with
firmness and determination. The matter
is still in the bands of the negociators at
Washingtoo, Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Pak
eohnm but we inter from seine of the re
marks of Sir Robert l'eel, that according
to his last advices, the prospect was less
favorable to an amicable adjustment, than
when Mr. Tyler, just before the close of
Congress, held out such a hope. Neverthe
less, we trust and believe that such a tears

The Duty of the Whigs,
We regret, in COllllOOll with the editors
of Whig papers In Philadelphia and
other places, to.see that some of our Whig
contemporaries are already beginning to
agitate the question of a Presidential can
didate for 1848, and to advocate the elec
tion of their respective favorites. This
is at least premature. The policy of the
Locofocos under Mr. Por.K is not yet de
veloped ; and the Whigs, though faithful
to their integrity and firm in their ranks,
still need to ha hand their resources, and
to go on vindicating their principles and
d ' , playing their strength and perseverance
without distraction as to men, In the man
ner they have done during the present
Spring. Let MoLliatv, Scow, CLAYTON
and W . EBSTER remain as they are, hon
ored and in honorable stations—let the
disposition to cone out first for a man
with a view to boasting and preferences
alter victory be discouraged ; and when

which their hearts still turn with fond de

FORGERY IN BOSTON.-Flight of the

England, for the sum of £5OO sterling,
payable to John Ilorstman, or order, da

that a forgery was committed. Fisk im

The assistance of officer A. M. C. Smith
was procured by Coolidge, and having

WILL THEREBE WAR
In looking over the speeches of Lord
John Russel, of Lord Aberdeen, and of
others, in the British Parliament, it is im•
possible to escap:: the conclusion that the
British government, and the British na
tion, believe that the right of Oregon
it with them ; and taking that with the
tune of Mr. Polk on the subject, it is not
strange there should be a tone adopted
that sounds like war. We hope, of course
that good councils will prevail, and 'tar
nation be spared the scourge. ‘Vltether
this can now be done, we do not know.—
e have rarely seen more indignation ex.
pressed in Parliament at any real cause,
than was manifested MI the receipt of
Mr. Polk's message ; and the London
Times, that gives, rather than speaks,
the tone or politics, makes a statement to
which we refer our readers. That paper
expresses an opinion strongly in favor of
the claim of Great Britian.
We cannot conceal our opinion that
taking the blustering of Mr. Polk, and
the crowing'' back again of the British
Ministry, the aspect of the aflair is ?oar
like. But will Mr. Polk take upon hint
self to plunge this nation into a war will,
Great Britian for such a cause as Oregon
presents ? or will great Britian take the
risk ? One year must ;lapse after notice
is given from either party to the other, of
its intention to relinquish its claims on
the provisions of •the treaty ; and Mr.
Polk cannot give that notice to England,
until Congress shall have acted upon the
matter, and England is equally bound to
give the same notice. Before that notice
is given, or, before the year shall have ex
pired after giving the notice, we may hope
some measures will be adopted to •main
tain peace, as wet e in the case of the
boundary question of Maine.
Pt must lie remembered that the ques
tion settled by Mr. Webster and Lord
Ashburton, was one that concerned an in•
dependent State, one of the old thirteen,
Maine, in '76, having been a district of
Msssuchusetts. There was, therefore,
much national feeling, natural-pride, and
territorial attachment involved in the mat
ter. Yet the dispute was settled, arnica
' bly and honorably.— The present question
is one of territory, thousands of miles
front the United States; of land in which
we have no agreeable associations,in which
we have no interest as a nation, and with
which there can he little connected to cre
ate pride of attachment. It was not sup
posed that it could ever become one of the
States of this Union. Mr. Jefferson, and
hundreds of others since his time, believ•
ed that the most that could be done for,
or with, Oregon territory, was to assist in
settling it with republicans, supplying it
with republican laws, and then aiding it
in becoming an independent republic.—
The idea of annexing that as a part of a
government, whose centre should be
'Washington, would be an idea which
could acquire no additional preposterous
ness from an attempt to annex Ireland on
the other side, iVith this hasty view, we
give a reason why we may hope for peace;
we give a reason why the present peace
s hould not be disturbed; and, we may add, if
the people are wise, they will not allow
Mr. Polk to play the game of war, to
create, a necessity for perpetuating his ad
ministration, or insurin4 the election of
one of his party.—U. S. Gazette.
The Pittsburg American says:—lt can.

towns, and cities, that ire group together
the manifestations of these as they come
to our knowledge.

Iron Safes. •

mention . this fact to put people elsewhere
on their guard. Our merchants had them
from all quarters and at all pt ices, anti
not one exposed to lhefire ; saved a single

LOSSI lIV THE G 14tAT FIRE.-A commit
tee appointed by the Councils, alter a full
examination of the burnt district, having
minut;dy visited every part of it, have ar
rivi;il at the following result:
982 buildings burnt, $2,566,500
Value personal property burnt, 913,450
This does not include money or per•
sonal property of young men or persons
.not keeping house.
In calculating the value of real estate,
the committe have estimated the cash
value of the improvements as they Were
before the fire, and not what it will re
quire to repair or rebuild theta, which
must exceed the above estimate at- least
25 per cent."
We find th'e above in same of our
eastern exchanges. Where it originated
we know not. The estimated' value of
the buildings is probably withiti bounds of
reason, but the estimate of personal prop
erty here given, is one that no's:me man in
this community would acknuwledge.—
We have heard no estimate yet made,
that did not place the wake of personal
property destroyed, at doubre' that of the
buildings. The amount in Nails alone
was 3100,000. Iron no doubt is of an
equal amount. Scarcely a merchant in
IVoods, Market, Water or Front streets,
whose loss of goods was less than $lO,-
000 and varying from that sum to •Sur,-
000. Very few dwelling houses, but
contained furniture and clothing nearly,
it not quite equal to their value.
We have had no reason as yet to doubt
the correctness of our own first statement .
in which we gave 1000 as the number of
houses destroyed. More recent accounts
41* it . to 1100. Besides the noblest
business houses, it included the best por
tion of private residences very densely
built. One estimate of the whole loss
was $9,000,000, two thirds of which was
