The Hon. Jo , lip 111. Clayton's resolution
calling for fora'. correspondence on the
Oregon Question being called up--
Mr. WEBSTER rose and said : I shall
advise my honorable friend, the member
from Delaware, to forbear from passing
this. resolution for a few days.
There is no doubt that there are letters
from'Mr. M'Lane ; but, as the Chairman
of the Committee on Foreign Relations
opposes this motion, I am td presume that
the Executive Government finds it incon
venient to communicate those letters to
the Senate, at the present moment.
Yet, it is obvious, that as the Senate is
called on to perform a legislative act, it
ought, before the hour of its decision
_comes, to be put in possession of every
thing thing likely to influence its judg
ment ; otherwise, it would be required to
perform high legislative functions on mere
confidence. There is certainly some em
barrassment in the case. If the Execu
tive Government deems the communica
tion of the correspondence inconvenient,
it can only be because neg otiation is still
going on, or, if suspended, is expected to
be resumed. So far as negotiation is con•
cerned, the conitnunication,or publication,
of the correspondence, may very proper
ly be thought inconvenient. But, then,
the President has recommended the pas
sage of a law, or resolution, by the two
Houses of Congress. In support of this
recommendation, he himself sent us, un.
asked, at the commencement of the ses
sion, the correspondence up to that tiine.
Now, if that was necessary, the rest is
necessary. If we are entitled to a part,
we are entitled to the whole.
In my opinion, the mistake was in call
ing on Congress to authorize notice to
England of the discontinuance of what
has been called the joint occupation until
negotiation had been exhausted. Negotia
tion .hould have been tried first, and when
that had failed, and finally failed, then,
and not till then, should Congress have
been called upon.
I now go on the ground, of course, the
the notice far discontinuing the joint on.
cuparicy is properly to be given by author
ity of Congress; a point which I do not
It is said, indeed, that notice is to be
used as a weapon, or an instrument, in
ne‘otiation. I hardly understand this.—
It is a metaphor of not very obvious ap.
plication. A weapon scents toimply, not
a facility, or mereaid, but the means either
of defence against attack, or of making
an attack. It sounds nut altogether friend
ly and pacific. I doubt exceedingly
whether, under present circumstances,
notice would hasten negotiation; and
yet such are those circumstances, that
there may be as much Inconvenience in
standing still as in going forward.
\ The truth is, that great embarrassment
arises from the extreme pretensions and
opinions put forward by the President, in
his inaugural address, a year ago, and in
his message last December. But for these,
notice would have been harmless, and
perhaps would have been authorized by
both Houses without much opposition, and
received by England without dissatisfac•
non. But the recommendation of the no
tice, coupled with the President's repea
ted declarations that he held our title to
the whole of the territory to be " clear
' and unquestionable," alarmed the coun
try. And well it might. And if notice
were required, in order to enable the Pre
sident to push these extreme claims to
any and every result, then notice ought
to be refused by Congress, unless Con
gress is ready toliipport these pretensions
at all hazards. Here lies the diflirulty.
Congress is not prepared, and the country
is not prepared, as .I believe, to make the
President's opinion of a dear and un
questionable right to the whole territory
fan ultimatum. If he wants notice for
a purpose, he certainly must see that it
becomes a grave question whether Con
gress will grant it.
It was a great, a very great mistake, to
accompany the recommendation of notice
with so positive an assertion of our right
to the whole territory. Did the President
mean to adhere to that, even to the ex
tremity of war? If so, he should have
known that, after what has happened in
years past, the country was not likely to
sustain him. Did he mean to say this,
and afterwards recede from it ? If so,
why say it at all ? Surely the President
could not be guilty of playing an small a
part, as to endeavor to show himself to
possess spirit, and boldness, and fearless
ness of England, more than his predeces
sors, or his countrymen, and yet do all
this in the confident hope that no serious
collision would arise between the two
countries. So low an ambition, such pal
try motives, ought nut to be imputed.—
When the President declared that, in his
judgment, our title to tine whole of Ore
gon was " clear and unquestionable," did
he mean to express an ollicial or a mere
,fpersonal opinion I If the latter, it cer
tainly hail no place to an official commu
nication. If the former—if he intended
a solemn official opinion, upon which he
was resolved to act officially, then it is a
• very grave question how far he is justifi
ed,without tiew lights, or any change of
circumstances, to place the claims of this
country, in this respect, on other grounds
Than those en which they had stood under
predecessors, and with the concur•
tree of all branches of the Government,
r so:many years; for it is not to be
!doubted that the United States Govern
*sent has admitted, through a long series
of years, that England has rights in the
wthwestern parts of this continent
Which are entitled to be respected,
Nlr. President, one who.has observed
attentively what has transpired here and
in England, within the last three months,
must, I think, perceive that public opin
ion, in both countries, is coming to a'con•
elusion that this controversy ought to be
settled ; and is nut very diverse, in the
one country and the other, as to the gen
eral basis of such settlement.—That basis
is the offer made by the United States to
England in 182 G.
There is no room to doubt, I think, that
this country is ready to stand by that offer,
substantially and in effect. Such is my
opinion at least, and circumstances cer
tainly indicate that Great Britain would
not, in all probability would not, regard
such a proposition as unfit to be consider
ed. I said, some weeks ago, that I did
not intend to Discuss titles at length, and
certainty not to adduce argument against
our own claim. But it appears to me that
there is a concurrence of arguments, or
considerations, in favor of regarding the
49th parallel as the just line of demarca
tion, which both countries might well re
spect. It has, for many years, been the
extent of our claim. We have claimed
up to 49 degrees, and nothing beyond it.
We have o ff ered to yield ,every thing
north of it. It is the boundary between
the two countries on this side the Rocky
Mountains, and has been since the pur
chase of Louisiana from France.
Ido not think it important either to
prove or disprove the tact, that commis
sioners under the treaty of Utrecht estab
lished the 49th parallel as the boundary
between the English and French posses
sions in America. Ancient maps and de
scriptions so represent it ; seine saying
that this line of boundary is to run "in
definitely west," others saying, in terms,
that it extends to the northwestern
ocean." But, what is more important, we
have considered this boundary as estab•
!jolted by the treaty of Utrecht, at least
on this side of the Rocky Mountains. It
was on the s!rength of this that we drove
back the British pretensions, after we had
obtained Louisiana, north, from the head
waters of . the Mississippi to this parelfel
of 49 deg.
This is indubitable. We have acted,
therefore, and induced others to act, on
the idea that this boundary Ivas actually
established. It now so stands in the treaty
between the United States and England.
If, on the general notion of contiguity, or
continuity, this line be continued "inde
finitely west," or is allowed to run to the
" northwestern ocean," then it leaves on
our side the valley of the Columbia, to
which, in my judgment, our title is main
tainable on the ground of Gray's discov
'rim Government of the United States
has Lever offered any line south of forty
nine, (with the navigation of the Colum
bia,) and it never will. It behooves all
concerned to regard this asa settled point.
As to the navigation of the Columbia, per
manent'y or for a term of years, that is
all matter for just, reasonable, and friend
ly negotiation. But the 40th parallel must
be regarded as the general line of boun
dary, and not to be departed from for any
line further south. As to all straits, and
sounds. and islands, in the neighboring
sea, all these are fair subjects fur treaty
stipulation. If the general basis be agreed
to, all the rest, it may be presumed, may
be accomplist cd by the exercise of a spirit
of fairness and amity.
And now, Mr.lt 7 ;sident, if this be so,
why should this settlement be longer de
layed 7 Why should either Government
hold back longer from doing that which
both, I think, can see must be done, if
they would avoid a rupture 7 Every hour's
delay is injurious to the interests of both
countries. It agitates both, disturbs their
business, interrupts their intercourse, and
may, in time, seriously affect their friend •
ly and respectful feeliag towards each
Having said this, Mr. President, it
would be needless for me, even it it were
proper, to add more. I have expressed
my own opinions plainly and without dis
guise. I think I see clearly where this
business must end, if it is to end without
serious collision ; and I earnestly hope
that those In whose hands power is, on
both sides, will exercise that power
promptly, in removing the great evils pro
duced on both sides by the pendency of
this unfortunate, disturbing, and danger
It is not a case in which either Govern
ment should stand on !natters of form or
etiquette. The interest at stake are too
important for that. It is not humiliation,
it is not condescension even, for either
Government to signify to the other its
readiness to do at once what it sees must
be done ultimately. Thus far, the dis
pute does not touch the honor of either
Government. Let, then, the propitious
moment be Seized ; let candor, and fair
ness, and prudence rule the hour : and let
these two great nations he restored to the
full enjoyment of their vast, useful, and
