Mr McDufiio llion rose and addressed the Senate. On his conscience ha would slate the jrutli, the whole trnlh, and nothing but tlio 1 ruth In regard to tlio conflicting damn bet veen our country and Hughm), on Oregon.

There was no principle of intern ttminl liw clearer, than tint discntery without selll"tui'nl, gave no title. In th: connection ho sent to the clerk' table an extract from Valid, which was read. Hero this celebrated nulhor pronounces as an cmply figment, the claims upon which Senators, and eten the Secretary nf Slate, hid founded our title to tins territory. As to tho Spin'sh titles, upon w Inch ro much stress ha been laid, he duub'ed whether civilized nations would recognise them a of any impnrtance, even if Spam Mill retained thorn and trod to en. force them now. It was doubtful whether ever such a mm as De l'.ica lived, upon whose dis coveries we hive beird no many arguments. lie contended that Spain never made a settle, nient in the lorrilory. The Spitiisb title he thought was not worth a farthing. The only tine lie cuns.dered worth anything, was the dis covery of Capt. Gray, and the subsequent ex ploration of Lewis and Clarke, followed in i loasonablo timo by the suttloinonl at Astoria. In 1813, 'SI, '2,! and M t.our (Jovernment made tbeofr.'r of the '19 h parallel, and we ncter claim, cd a lino higher. How, then, do we got higher now! We am admonished to do to others as we would that other should do to us.

Whit new light Invo we pot now, mure than former adnnnistraiions, to carry us north of our former oilers ? As to the probibilily of a settlement, lie believed that lln.s country was in great danger of bnin;; involved in a war, from tin- miserable quesii n. Does any man believo l n settlement can be mule on any line north of tlio dOb pirillol.

Dips any! man behove that wu would compromise Nation 1 honor by repeating the elljr of Mr Gallatin sinctioued by the Patriots of thn lletolutioii and of the lat War ! Il is then not a question nf honor but of property. It would cost us ten times more than the value of the whole of Ore gon to carry on a war one tear. He thou turned to Greonhow's book on Ore con, and kept the Senate in a roar of laughter by the descriptions there given of Oregon. The best part of the territory had only about one tenth part of it lit fur cultivation. There was probably not more than four or live thousand square miles tit tn support civilized man in the whole territory. In some parts of the country they have no rain oxcont occasionally a shower in spiing. The thermometer is at the freezing point in the morninj, and at 02 degrees at noon. In other parts the mountains were covered with perpetual snows, and the lower rivers and lakes were covered two-thirds of the year with tec. Ho doubled much whether cither of us hid any right to invade lint country. We have a fight to take from savages a country fit to bo made useful for atts and agriculture. But he doubted whether any civilized nation bad a right to take from savages a country lit only to bo in. habited by savages. If our rights wore involved he would die even on this miserable Territory, but it was a question merely of property. War for this miserable territory would last for at least I seven years : a war ui desolation. A war that must bo entered into with feelings of hitred arising from some other cau-c than national honnr, and bo Imped lint if wu insisted on going to war on this miserable pretext wo shill pros ecute il li I ono or the other nation is so subdued as to be sick of wars. As for llie Notice, he would go for lint form which expressed nio-i thoroughly to the Presi dent his duly to settle it. Il a tre ity to settle this question according lo o ir offer of IS'Jfj worn sent in In. morrow, he would be ready to vote fur Hon five minutes' coo-ideration. The Hou-u had probably done as much as ihey roiiM. Wo tvere the Constitutional advisers uf the Presi dent. When he took his feat Mr Broeso read a more favorable description of Oregon from V.mcou' vcr's voyage, Mr McDuffie replied that Grecnlinw had ex amined the country geographically Vancouver only 6aw the coast. The Senate then, on motion nf Mr Webster, adjourned until Muuday at 'i o'clock. Thn House was occupied willi the Private Calendar. No business of public interest. They adjourned early.

Henry Harrison succerded to the Presidency. All the eflirts mid solicitude of Presidents Jackson and Van Uureu had not advanced the subject a step, but with Mr Forsyth under the latter, Its progress had been backward, and when ho (Air W.) took it up, it was as beautiful a piece of complicated diplomacy as a Nessolrode, or I'alloyrand, or Melternich could invo wish ed to have unravelled. It would have been far eisier to manage had it been a fresh question. Projects and cotinler-projocls, objections and coiinler objoclions hid pissed between Mr Fox and Mr Forsyth, and finally our Government had nrono'cd arbitration. Before lie (Mr W.)

Now, notwithstanding all the miserable croc oil ile tears that had been shed over the losses of Maine by those who took it in their mouths to say that she hid been coerced into this measure, ho ventured to say ihat Maine, had never com plained of the treaty, but on llie contrary, that not ten intelligent men could be found in Maine who would he willing In but il aside and put lliings as they were before.

Mr C. accompanied hij motion by a few elo quent and pertinent remarks, and triumphantly defended the apportionment hw. The whole subject was laid ou the table, by a veto of 01 to O.i. The committee on the Judiciary reported a bill to create the offico of Assistant Secretary of Sla'e. The committee on Naval Affiirs reported a lesoluiion, instructing the committee on Com merce to inquire into the cause of llie preval ence uf sin ill pov, and other contagious diseases, on board of merchant vessels, and the best mode ol preventing llie same.

The House then went into cnnimillee of the Whole, and resumed tin consideraMon of the Cumberland I io id bill, and it was reported to the House amended ; but, before taking any ques tion, a iiiutiou was made to adjourn, which prc- vailed. Tuesday, April 7. Senate The Senate Chamber was again crowded with a brilliant auditory, who were attracted by .Mr Webster's speech. lie neter appeared, perhaps, lo greater ad vantage, in point of person, manner and voice, or eter treated a subject of which he was more thoroughly master. The speciil order was called up to-day, soon aflor twelve, and Mr Webster proceeded to couip'eti! Ins historical view of the subject. lie read a despitch lo sho.v that the British Goternment had comu to the conclusion ihat they could not settlo ibis question during the administration of Mr Van Huron, and Lord Pal niorslon would, ho said, wait for a change of the administration. Mr W. prote-tcd against the inference that Lord P. expected to find another administration more facile, or Ihat Mr Van B.i ren's lerms were particularly exacting; and ho fhowed tint it was the consequenco only of a complicated dispute as to the lerms nf a conven tion for explanation no negotiation for settling the boundary having been attempted by the two Governments. .Mr Dix bad produced extracts from parliamentary debates to show the value nf the country ceded lo Great Britain, in a mil itary point ol view. ,wr W. produced contrary . views from Sir Howard llougla-s, Lord Palmer 1 ttou and others. All those news, though con. I tradictorv, wero exa""erated. Notion" was, in fad, gained or lost by either party, in a military point of view, except House's Point, which was ceded to us. The two Now York Senators had not underrated the value of that acquisition ; but Ihey had carefully avoided any mention of il. I li s pest was regarded by our most eminent engineers, as uf great value, lis importance was felt during tlio last war, when our (intern ment commenced military works on it. In 1818 the United States expended a hundred thousand d dlarsun l licso works. When the exploration took plare, subsequently, llie lino of 40 was J found to run South of House's Point. As soon di no recovered ils possess , the V. S. Gov ' eminent puthed tho work there to completion. ' ' geuiieuicu wauicu more niiormaiioii on me subject of its value, ho would refer them lo llie opinions of Colonel Tuttoll and Coiiimodorc Morns, who mule a military survey uf that re gum thn last tear. e put it to gentlemen, whether most, if not all llie li ngs lh i( bad been throw n out at Ihat ; treaty, hid not risen Irom Ihn fact Ihat it was Ihiiught undesirable that (huso oiiL'.iL'cd ill con. . dueling it thould derive too much credit from Connected with this subject of the boundary was llie Caroline and tlio .Mcl.eod aRilr. As lo (he former, lie L'ltu a Imi.iri, :.! tim... ment Irom Sir van Huron's own inessai-cs, showing Ihat lawless nl litem of iho U. Sidles wore making war nu Iho lues and properly nl British subjects, in Canada. A parlv came over and seized Ibis boat, the Caroline. Mr Fox a- towed tho adas ono of tho colonial government For this violation of our territory, llie United hi.ates Got eminent could have demanded renar aliou. A correspondence afterwards took placo in regard to it, between Mr Stevenson and Lord l'alnierflon. Thus the mailer lay, till Mcl,nd was arrcs ted for killing Durfcu in that aflair. Mr Fox- again declared that McLeod had acted under authority, as a soldier, aim that the If mull Guv e ninciit was responsible for his act. Hut it an poared that Mr Forsyth had taken the ground that the lirititii tioicrnmcnt had nut avontil Iho act, and it would be for the country Intake that avowal into consideration, lint the llritnh linv crnmenl had declared In Mr Steveiison that the act was avowed, repeatedly, and t,ord Palmer, ston told Mr Stevenson that the Urilish Govern mont would iniko no apology or reparation for the interference against the Carolina that the act was planned and executed by order uf llie Government of Canada. A nolo to this effect was addressed to Mr Stevenson in May, 19110. It thus appears that Mr Van Duron's adminis. tration was early advised that tlio Ilntish Gov ernment had avowed the act, but never asked anv reparation for il. For throe years that ad ministration slept over the wounded honnr of the country. At last, tlio McLeod aflair freshen ed it up in November, 1810. Then, the Gov ernment of the United States said, wo ncv. er Knew that the act was authorized by Ilia Ilri lisli Government. We did not belli ve their minister Mr Fox, when ho avowed it. We nev er thought it worth while to ask Kuglind wheth er she avowed it or not. Tin: aflair brought about a great e.xcilpmont in lingland. Jt was one of lnie caes w Inch touch thu hearts of that people, as a similar wou'd Invu done here. At Ibis lime Mr Vox donmided the release of Mc Lend, and declaied th it it was contrary to tlio law of nations to arrest a soldier for ait act com untied under the command of a superior nfli.tcr, for which his Government had assumed I lie res ponsibility. Mr Forsyth, however, said lie bad not bufore been aware that the act was a public one. Thus stood the matter when Gen. Harrison ailuied the Government. He decided, as a statesman and jurist ought to do, llit.t the inva sion of our territory by Great Ilril iio was an act that required apology and atonement, and that It was contrary to national law to indict a private Mildior for an act done liv order of his Govern ment. The note of Mr Fox. deminding the re-leas- of .Wcl.ood, was thought to harsh. Mr Fox was inlormed that Mcl.eod must bo dis charged tn a legal way. The Government could not enter n not. prus. because case was not in llie a United Slates court. Upon an appeal from the highest court of the Stale, the case might have been brought, by writ of error, to the U. States court. Hut the Government did not inlcrlore at all. He should ask the Senator from Now York (Mr Dickinson) what lie meant by siying that the Government had interfered in an un. justifiib'o manner in the judicial proceedings of llie Stale court of New York. There was no interference at all. Mr W. now asked whether this was not the proper course. Was the Government of the U. Slaies to turn from the lion and lall up in the lamb ! When the British Government had a. vowed the act, when the British authorities, both colonial and at home, when the whole Ilnltsi people avowed the net, and cried to us "in mc, in ins cnnmrlile ferrum" was it magnanimous io this Government, after throe yens sleeping oter the insult, lo seize upon ono poor wretch single American who would nut be ready to de clare war! Ho ueter doubted,-- Gen. Ham sun's Cabinet never doubted, that the proceed ing against ,1c Lend was illegal. Hp was Mir pris,cd at llie decision of the New York Court, lie would say, on his protcssiouil reputation, tint the opinion of the State court of New York was not a respectable opinion, either in its ob. j-ct or tlio reasons given for it. Bat Mcl.eod was found not guilty. Congress evidently hold the opinion thai the proceeding of the New Yoik Court was uncoiistuutiural, and mule a law ac cordingly to moot such cases.

M.I.:. i Unur Mr Allen had heard nothing to remove bis objection that Ihn call en Ilm President, from day to day, aflor the arrival of a steamer, car ried with it a distrust of the cnucity of the Ad ministration to manage their affairs. The Inten tion was tint so, be knew. Two calls had been undo already. If the President had now any rea son tochangp his opinion ns given at the begin Ingrf tbo setsinn.'iis duty would be lo I iv h before the Senate. He had not given us any father information, nor had he intimated any change ol his opinion. If the President was mentally in competent to judge of the state of our relations, or if ho had a nialicluus motive in concealing whatever might occur lo change our relations, it might bo a reason for theso repeated calls, If any Senator hero would say that the Presi dent has important information which he with holds from the Senate, he w ould vole for the call. Thu s line call for Information when pro. poed to be mido.from President Tyler, was vo ted down, and put at rest. The Senator from Kentucky, ( Mr Motchead ) nndo an elaborate speech against it. It was thought a presump tion that the President would do wrong If he could. Tlio Senate considered that every ad ministration was entitled tn some confidence Ho did not say this from what ho knew to oit or not to exist, but from principle. Ho wished no inference to be drawn from his remarks that there was or was not ini'onnitiou. The call ho opposed, because it would show a want of con.

fidenco in the President, and would prejudice our cause, so lar as hnghiid was concerned. Mr CI ty ton said resolutions of this kind were not ordinarily opposed here, because the answer was left to the President's discretion. He de nied Ihat it would imply any distrust nf the I'.v eculitc. It left it lo linn lo send such informa tion as he thought lit, or none at all. The ex. Inordinary opposition of tlio honorable cbilr. man would lead lo a suspicion that there is something in possesion of the Kxeculite, which he would feel himself compelled to send to the Senile on Ibis subject, lie repeated that he should vote for I lie notice, no iinllor what llie answer to the call. B it others did not led pre. pared to vote without lb s inform itiou. I lo call ed for the yeas and nays on Ihn passigo of the resolution, mr M ireheail explained thai, when he resisted a call for information of this kind, there was no incisure pending before the Sen ate upon which the information called for was io bear. The case was now tery different. The President upon a certain slate of facts, hid re commended a incisure which would iuvolta the question of peiro or war, and it was ind.spensa. lile Ihat the Si n ite should Invo full information. He felt no distrust of the President ; but before he acted on Ike notice, he claimed to know whether a negotiation was pending or not. Mr Allen further resisted the resolution and it was passe I otnr. Mr Cass asked Mr Webster to read the letter which he yesterday adduced in support of the opinion that the Asbbiirton Treaty had led to tho rejection of the quintuple treaty. The letter was from Mr Wheaton, a gentle, mm for when ho entertained a very high re spect. Tlio loiter having been read. Mr Cass said Mr Wheaton had fallen Into an anii hronisni. The quintuple treaty was rejected by France in 1312, and the Asbbiirton treaty was received in llurope in September. Mr Dickenson spoke at great length in reply to Mr Webster's assault on him and C. J. lnger. soil. sir D. said that the Senator had complained that hi speech hid been sent olf, in vast num bers, to Broome county enough to fill iho lar gest barn in Bruome county, and hard fmUsr it would be. Now who would not pity him (.ttr 1).,) when writhing under such sarci-m.sucli brilliant wit, such gnj likc conceptions as tint! This raised a general laugh, in which Mr Webster heart ly i lined, exclaiming, "a fur hit."

Thu affairs of M.xii-o are occupt iug an iinusn il sh ire nf .iilnniioii in ibis eountiy anil in Europe. The repeated revolutions in thai dijtracied country, lliu insl.ihilily of ev ery new .nIiiiiiiMrulioii, thn cm iiipiion anil iml ecilily of every department of the gov orninenl, and iho decline of national poitci anil prospeiily.ull render il ovidenl that Mex ico cannot long remain as she is; and the impression prevails in Europe that but one of two courses remain for her, annexation in somo farm or oilier lo the United States, or the establishment of a govern ment, Tho extreme jealousy with which tho aristocratic governments of lliu old world have viewed the progress of liberal institu tions on this side of tho Atlantic, and the alarm which they havo manifested at the grasping disposition of our people towards territorial aggrandizement, leavo no doubt which of the two plans would meet their countenance and support. Out wo arc not left to any such inferences of the views and designs of tho chief European governments. Thu papers which aro regarded as speaking the views of the administration in England and in France, have, for several months, in dulged in speculations upon the condition of Mexico, and llie necessity of a stronger gov eminent, bolli as Ihe means of stability lo( Mexico, and as a check upon iho lurriloiiul j ambition of tho United Slaies. Two plans' havo been proposed, one, thu re-conquest of Mexico by Spain, which has been received, naturally, with favor in that coiinlry.nutwilh standing its evident absurdity ; thu other, the establishment uf an Euiopeun Prince, cither lliu Duke of Monlpensier.son ofL iuis Phillippe, in such an event lo ho married tu tho sister of (lie Queen of Spain, or u son of Dun Carlos. Tho London Tunes sees in the revolution which has placed P.irtdes at the head of the administration, tho intention on thn pari of 1 1 id Mexicans, to establish a a stronger government, and looks forward confidently lo tho propositions which aro to bu made by iho extraordinary Congress ihal ho has convoked, A newspaper has been established in Mexico for tho avowed pur pose uf advocating a monarchy although tho public sentiment was so out raged hy it, that the editor was obliged to mako his escape from personal violence. It becomes an impottant question what course the United Stales would he hound to pursue, within what limits it would have the right lo interfere in caso of an attempt to es tablish a monarcliial government in Mexico. The people of Mexico havo llie. undoubted right lo chooso their own form of Govern ment, und lo alter it ot their pleasure. If they choose a constitutional monarchy or an ahsolule monarchy, it is no hiisinrss of ours.

The ex ample of Greeco is too fresh before us. If tlio adaptation ol the Mexican people to dem ocratic institutions bo problematical, their unfitness for monarcliial government is very evident. Plots and conspiracies and revolu tions would bo as rifu as ever. It is a matter of profound regret that this country, instead of standing in its true rela tion of friend and adviser to the younger and feebler republics which have endeavored, as well as the materials would allow, to model themselves after us, should liavo been the first In mun'ifnct .-, .nirii r,fi,mreinn InivnrrU ' , 1 be" them.

II the cause of republicanism is to be' put back hv tho establishment of another throne in North America, tlio evil lies at tho door of the ullra democratic party, which has al ready commenced the dismemberment of Mexico by the annexation of Texas, and which does not conceal ils determination to follow it up with a similar outrage in relation to California. This unnatural position renders us unable to protest willi much leison or ttiih much effect against any changes which llie Mexi can pcnplu may see fit to adopt in older to protect ihcmsclves Irom our aggression, or which Ihey limy deem essential lo their own tranquility.
