rnnm iiiini empty themselves into t lie river St Law renco, from thine which fall inlo tho Allan tic ocean." Tho whole argument of tho British Government, it will ho perceived, rests upon the nssuntpthn Hint the St. John is not a river falling into the Atlantic ocean, because it has its mouth in the Day of Fundyi Now what nro tho objections to this extra, ordinary pretension, as tho coinuiitlfco aro constrained to call it? And, first, what Is llin Hay of Fundy, if it bo not a part of tho Atlantic ocean ? A bay is a mere opening of tho main ocean into the land a mere interruption of tho uniformity of the scacoast by an indentation of walor. These portions of thu ocean havo received the namo of bays, solely to distinguish them from tho iciiiaindcr of the vast doop, to which they bolong. Would it not bo tho merest special pleading to contend that tho Hay of Naples was not a portion of tho mediterranean, or that the Day of Iiiscay was not n pait of tho Atlantic ocean f Again: thn description of tho treaty in, 'rivers which fall into tho Atlantic Ocean." Can it bo said, with any proprluly, that a river dors not fall into the Atlantic, because, in reaching the main ocean, it may pass thro1 nbav? And vol this initio Drilisll arirnmunf T ho'Delawaro docs not fall into tho Atlantic, because it flows into it llirouuti the Hay of Delaware ; ami, for iho satno reason, thu St. John docs not fall into tho Atlantic, because it flows into it thtouuh tho I!av of I'm dy. Tho comtnittco Know not how to give a serious answer to such an nrgumout. The bare slatoment of it is its best refutation Hut, like all such ariiincnt, it proves too much. If it bo correct, ibis portion of tho treaty of 171)3 is rendered absurd and suicidal ; tied tho wiso and distinguished statesmen, bv whom it was framed, mul bo condemned by posterity, for affixing their names to an instrument, in this paiticular, at least, abso. lutelv void. Although they believed thev would prevent "all disputes which might arise, in future, on the subject of tho bound.i . rios of tho United States,"' by fixing their commencement at "iho northwest angle of Nova Scotia," and running from thence along "llio highlands which divide lliosp rivers which empty themselves into llio river St. Lawrence, from thoso which fall into the Atlantic, ocean,'' vet it is absolutely ccr tain, that thcro was net a singlo river in that wholo region of country which, according to the Hritfsli ennst ruction, did fall into the Atlantic ocean. They all fall into bays, with out ono exception. Neither can we plead i'THoranco as an e.xeupo for thes-o commission ers: because it is fully in proof, that they had Mitchell's map before Ihem, from which the fact clearly appear.'!. I no Kisligouche docs not fall into llio Atlantic, becausu it has its mouth in thu li.iy of Chaleuis: nor does tho Penobscot, because its mouth is in liio Hay of Penobscot ; nor do theKcnnobef.k and Andros coggin, because, after their junction, they fall into tho Hay ol fcajradahocl;. I ho same is true, even of the Connecticut, because ennilics itself into Lonir Island sound. All the rivers in that region aro in tho same con dition with the St. John. Thus it appears, if tho Hritish argument bo well louiiucil, that th commissioners havo concluded a treaty described highlands, wlicnco btrcams proceed fallhnr into tho Atlantic, as a portion of tha boundary of tho United States, when, from the very face of tho map bolbro them, it is apparent no such streams exist There is another objection to tho Hritish claim, which is conclusive. Wherever tho highlands of tho treaty exist, they must bo wind: en the north sml tha treaty highlands nro considerably uhnvc Hint of Miuh hill, the highest point on thu ridge claimed by ureal Hrilain. The com mittee, however, deem such n question to bu wholly immaterial. When highlands arr spoken of 119 dividing waters flowing in different directions, the meaning is plan From tho very nuluro of things, they must exist and slope off in opposite ri'clioiisi but whether they consist ol It bio hind, of mountains, or even of swamp, parlsnriH linvu been made between llio MAINE. height or Mars ill and that of dilturcnl ,rI , . - parTs o( the highlands which divide thej ( r,' 6?"1 import of Olir llltcl- ttreuins ol llio Hi.

"co.iii j excepiinS ;l. i.i.in.l iw icncc. This portion ol tho description is as essential as that from their south sielo streams should issue falling into tho At lantic. Now the Hritish claim abandons the former part of the description altogether. Their lino of highlands commencing at Mais hill is at least a hundred milos south of the highlands whence tho tributaries of the St. Lawrence flow. Retwcen theso highlands and thoso claimed by the Hritish Government the broad valley of Ihc St John spreads itself, watered by the river of that name, and Iho fclrcams which empty into it from Iho noith and from tho south. Tho two points on the wostctn lino of New Brunswick aro distant from each other morothan a hundred miles; and when you arrivo at tho lirilisli highlands, you find that thoy divide iho sources of the Si. Jclin nnd the l'ouobscot, and not the 60urc.es of streams falling into the Si. Law rence and tho Atlantic ocean, accoidiug lo tho description of tho trcity. But, even enpposo it were posiblo to prove that neither tho St. John nor any other river in that region falls into the At lanltc ocean, would this fact cssci.t ally benefit the lirilisli Government? If this portion of tho dercriplion should entirely fail, would it render tuo other poition void? Ccrlainlv not. It might be said that the commissioners were tniftakcn as to where Iho ttrcnms emptied thcmselvcn which flowed from the southern side ol the treaty highland; ns to the existence of these high, lands, there could bo no mistake. They nro tho boundary ; and the etreonis flawing from them are more matters of description Can they be sufficiently identified, indepen. dcnllv of this mistake? If they can, the question is si tiled. Now, fortunately on this subject, no dnuat can exist. I wo cir cuinstauces concur to identify thrin, uboul which it is not po-i-ible there cuo bo i mi.luko. According to the act of f'arlia incut of 177.1, thry constitute the southern lino of the province of Qiielnc, between the western extremity of tho Hay of (Jlin lours, in lal tude !!), and thn eastern bnuf of the Connecticut river, in laMtido do and i' is equally ceilain Hint from tliein nil along in regular succession, stream proceed falling info he Si- Lawrrnce.
