1% r. WEBSTER'S EB3 1:;; , 1:.03 2 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 now discuss. 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 ery. '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 other. 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 ous controversy. 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 harmonious intercourse. R err WEAVING.-- Yankee Ingenuily.—gr. Bigelow, an ingenious American artisan, has in vented a power loom for weaving grain carpets which is already in use by the Lowell Company, who have set fifty looms in motion, and expended nearly ono hundred thousand dollars in this branch of manufacture. 'rho carpets produced aro of the fined quality. Mr. Bigelow has also completed machine for the manufacture of Brussels carpeting, which has every prospect of success. Ho has also invented a machine for the manufacture of Mar seilles quilts, a species of work seldom attempted in this country.
