NEW YORK HERALD. "?w York, Monday, April ?, 1?M< Tht CipwM SifW#. The steamer Dotcom ia now over due, she being in her eighteenth day. With new boilera, a atraight keel, complete repair*, and a reputation to preserve, *he ought to cros* the Atlantic in certainly sevrn teen days. She waa, however, to remain at Halifax about twenty houra. * The intelligence, to be received by thia steamer, is looked for with a great deal of interest, and in con sequence of this, an express has been arranged to run over the Worcester and Norwich roads, across the Sound in the steamer Huguenot, and then over the Long Island railroad to Brooklyn, It is ex pected that in live or six houra, or thereabouts, alter the Unicorn reaches Boston, her news will be in this city. It is a matter ot public interest to ascer tain the actual difference in the speed of the light ning line and that to be made by the expected ex press locomotive over the Worcester, Norwich and Long Island railroads. The shortest time has not yet been obtained over the latter route. We ail know the speed of the lightning route. The news will be published in an Extra Htrald immediately alter it is rec.-ived; price two cents per copy. Th. Oregon dues,Ion?It, Kdfcot on tile Destiny of the World. The great and absorbing question of peace or war which haa been depending on the settlement of the Oregon question, for several monihs past, k" i*f:ri?U.1'y affected lh? commercial interestaof the Laited States, and in a certain, though smaller degree, those of the whole civilized world. Alter the tariff and sub-treasury questions had been rid den to death by the two great political parties into which the country is divided, the leaders of the de mocratic pirty alighted upon the Oregon question, and triumphantly shouldered it and brought it into the pool of politics, as the b-st and most feasible means of creating popular excitement and accom plishing the ends they had in view, viz.: the con trol of the general government. The claims of both England and the United States to the portion of the territory in dispute be tween them, could have remained m the state they have been since the time the convention between these two parties was made, for ten or twenty years more at well as not, by which time the title of the United States could easily be asserted and vindica ted by the emigrants front the Atlantic side. But if this question had not been taken up by the demo cratic party, the leaders thereof could not well have raised another that would have answered their pur poses as well. At the time the Oregon question was disturbed rom the slumber in which it had so long reposed, unnoticed and comparatively unthought of, the de mocratic party was in rather a precarious situation The triumphant and unprecedentedly great majority I with which General Harrison, the whig candidate for the Presidency, was elected to that office in the year 1840, severed the old ties of the democratic party and paralyzed the energies of the leaders. The death ol that venerable man, and the conse qnent accession to the Presidency of John Tyler, the Vice President, entailed upon the country an administration the most vacillating and .deceitful that probably ever ruled the country, since the revo jution. While it was neither whig nor democratic . ,n lU P'mciples, the influence it was permitted to exert was marked by the follies, frailties andiex cesses of both. Before the term of John Tyler had expired, the old party landmarks and boundaries were again established, and the whig and democra tic parties had resumed their organization. The two parties being then very strong, and Henry Clay being the avowed candidate of the whig party for the Presidency, and his popularity being great, the democratic Wders conceived the idea of waking up the Oregon as well as the Texas question, and ringing it into the field as the test question before the country-one was settled, the other is now in 1 full blast. It was marshalled forth and placed be- ! fore the country, and has taken precedence of the i t inn question, the sub-treasury, and all oiher ques tions. Tite Presidential candidute of the democra tic party was elected under the cry of 54 40, and, in his inaugural address, he did not fail to declare, in his opinion, that the claim of the United States was, beyon J all contingency, just and clear to the Russian fins, from that time until the present, it has g one on increasing in magnitude and importance , until, at last, the peace of the world is endangered. The uncertainty of the continuance of peace be tween the two countries, has been of incalculable injury to the commercial interesu of both the United States and of England, particularly the former coun try. Commercial sp-editions and adventures, which require the deepest thought and calculation,' ' could not, under such circumstances, be entered into- ' No merchant or man of business, would willingly risk his capital in merchmdtze or ships, which might be captured by an enemy before Lie voyage was half fiuished. Tne maintenance of peace was uncertain, from the end of one month to the end o , another. The consequence has been, that in both England and the United Sutes, a vast amount of capital and wealth, which, under auspicious circum stances, would be employed in commerce, has been withheld f rom the channels of trade until a more fa vorable time. In this respect, the real interesu and prosperity of the two countries haa suffered a shock from which they will not recover in a considerable time. In the preaent condition of the world, weconsi derfltt highly unfortunate that the Oregon question remains unsettled, or that it haa not been settled long since. The increased facilities of communi cation between the two countries, arising from the success attending steam navigation, paved the way for a commercial revolution, the dawn of which ap re ired some years since. The opening of the Chi nese Empire, with a population of three hundred millions of human beings, that through the preju fl ce of their rulers, for a succession of ages, had heen debarred from all intercourse with their breth len in other parts ol the world, was another step towards that great revolution. The revolution in the corn law system in England, which has recently taken place, and which is the basis of a free trade system of commerce with the whole world, was the next step in importance towards the great result. The recent passage of the sfSb-treaaury bill in the House of Representatives of this country, and the adoption of a free trade tariff, which will be parsed at no distant day, will make.the great commercial revolution complete, draw together the bonds of eoumon kindred in the great family of mankind, "1 make the inhabitants of the whole world one ??!', a bro,hprB' fading on and con ??Wed wuh each other by the strongest ties ifwrn?.81' comrnerci*J "^lotion, or millenium, BB h ' f 80 "rm ha? been in progress for a . , and ere many years are oast its happy influence. wiii ,/ ' m winch .he sun Eni , 1 eVWy ,<U,d OB mereial country in the world ? h.' * *.rPatP,( com" and ic one bound,..', we L " 'ak? ,hp ,Pad? principles in her intercourse' w" * ^ j'jj* world.

How unfortu nate, then, it is, aod how much to be deplorrd, that the great march of improvement should be retarded by any question,' no matter how important; and particularly by a question'ol a division of a territory which to either country is of comparative insignifi* cance, compared with the immense benefits both would receive trom the extension of the principles which are now, for the first time in the history of the world, advanced and being carried out. The present state ol matters between England and the United States is an anomaly. While every day both countries are approaching each other, and be coming more or lees identified with each other, so cially, commercially and politically, to an extent never dreampt of, wc see, on the other hand, the two countries allowing a question of minor impor tance?a question that if allowed to rest,would settle itself in a tew years, to the satisfaction ol both?keep them apart, and forbid the union both are so desi rous of forming. We see this really insignificant question hourly threaten the peace happily existing between those countries, and the maintenance of which is probably essential to the national existence of one, and the continued prosperity of the other. We certainly cannot think that a war which would be thus so ruinous to both, will be rashly en tered into by those two great countries, who are foremost in commerce and all the arts that adorn civilization, no matter what shape the Oregon question may assume under the workings of politi cians and panic makers; but rather that the states men and patriots of both countries, will unite, heart and hand, in drawing tighter the bonds between them, so that the fullest advantages that will arise from the new commercial revolution that is now dawning upon the world may be enjoyed by each, the blessing of peace preserved, old animosities ob literated, and an emulation created that will result in the progress, improvement, refinement and civi. lization of the species. Tux Charter Election ?The doubts which fill ed the minds el the great democratic party but a few days since, in regard to their candidate for Mayor, are now solved, and Mr. Andrew H. Mickle, "a respectable tobacco merchant," has been duly nominated for that office. A very curious state of things, however, still ex ists in the party, which threatens to cause some, thing of a break in its ranks, unless the wounds are healed. The nomination of Mr. Mickle was made on Tuesday evening last. The convention then ad journed until Thursday evening, for the purpose of receiving the acceptance of their candidate. Thurs day night came, but a quorum of the convention which had nominated him could not be brought to gether, to receive the formal acceptance of Andrew H. Mickle, as their candidate for Mayor?so that Mr. Mickle has not yet accepted the nomination. The secret of the inability on the part of the con vention to get together a quorum, lies, uadoubtedly in the fact, that many members of the convention, being adopted citizens, recollect the fact of Mr. Mickle having some time since declared himself a native American, to the inhabitants of his ward. The Sixth ward committee, which would not be received by the General Committee at Tammany llall, and which controls a majority of the votes in that ward, have put in nomination J. Sherman Brownell as Mayor,'and Charles H. Vultee lor Alder man of the ward. Unless this wound in the great democratic party is healed previous to the election, it may considerably lessen the chance of that party's success Another division has taken place in the 4ih ward, wnere George H. Purser is nominated as candidate lor Alderman, in opposition to Joseph A. Divver, the regular Tammany nominee. Iu the meantime, the whig party have selected a candidate for Mayor, supposed to be well known for firmness, honesty, and independence. His chance of success would be good, were it not that Mr. W. B. Cozzens has.resisted all ths feRorts mads to cause his resignation, and declares most unequi vocally that he will run, if he receives no vote but his own. I. In this aspect of things, we expect some fun on the 14th of April next. Below we give the regular de mocratic candidates for Mayor and Aldermen, the Alms House Commissioner not being yet nominat ed. The other tickets are not nearly complete, but the nominations will probably all be made within a few days. FOR MATOR ANDREW H. MICKLE. FIRtT WARD. TENTH WARD. Alderman?John 8 Gilbert Alderman?

Work pub thk Common Council.?Both boards of the city fathers will meet in Council to night, for the discussion of municipal matters, and in the tea room for the discussion of oysters and aegars. While debating upon municipal matters, we : would suggest that the memorial of the citizens oi : the Eighth ward, praying for an extension of the basin at the loot of Spring street, well deserves the attention of the Aldermen, on account of the bene fit that would accrue to ita citizens were the remedy they asked for applied, and the pier and basin ex tended so that market vessels could discharge their 1 loads at the Clinton Market. | Other matters will come up for consideration, many of which will tend to have an effect upon the number of votes to be polled in the city on the 14th instant. Ocran Steamships?American Lines ? It seema to be more certain, since the publication of the report of Mr. Milliard, in favor of the mail steam ers, that there will soon be an "American Line of Sea Mail Steamersand die probability is, that in a few years, all the mails frem this country will be conveyed in our own steam packets. We had in the Union of the 3d inst., the fol lowing paragraph relative to thia subject :? A latter from the North, atatea that the ' 'ateam route, which Col. Johnaoo has selected, ta now decidedly pop ular in New York and Boston. The Postmaster Gane ral*a letter to Congress, upon the subject, is entirely aatisfactory as relates to tho reasons which influenced him in his choice ; and, sustained as it is by tna able re port of Mr. Hilliard, adopted unanimously by tbo Com mittee en the Test O flics and Poet Roads and subse quently by the House, without e dissenting veto, it reflects much credit upon his judgment end wisdom in determining upon the line which be has selected. 1 have earn Mr. Mills end his associates in New York Their flrat resae. will be ready in Jenoary, and lata be callsd the "United States." The second will bo afloat three months afterwards, and will be celled the "Germanic " I have not the least doubt but these steamers will go to Bremen In lees time then the Cu Derdora go te Liverpool " It is to be hoped that all this will prove true, end be carried out. It haa been aettled that ocean steamship*, when properly managed, and convey ing the mails of any government, are profitable?aa much eo, indeed, aa any ocean enterprixe, in these days of competition, can be. Court of Genrral Sessions?The April term of this Court coinmenceH to-day before Recorder Scott and two Aldermen. In consequence of the unusu al interval ol two weeks since the close oi the last term, it is probable that the calendar for the ensiling term will be considerably larger than it haa been for 1 some tu?e past Tn Anti-Rent Tbociles.?VTe hart received sundry documents from Albany, and among them the report of Mr. Tiiden, of the eelect committee, on ao much oi the Governor's message as relates to the | difficulties existing between the proprietors ol cer tain leasehold estates and their tenants, dec. This report commences with giving s general view ' ol the extent and location of the principal leasehold estates; ol the nature oi the various tenures under whieh the tenants hold; of the evils complained of; and lastly, of the remedies desired and proposed. The details of the nature of the tenures, and the ex tent of these tracts of land in several counties, are interesting. The report then goes on to discuss the expediency and legality of the three remedies pro' Dosed, tc-wit: " 1st. Taxation of the landlord's inte" rest; 2d, abolition of distress for rent; 3d, a law enabling the tenant to dispute the title of the land lord The committee conclude their report by offering the bills to effect these objects which have already been reported in the columns of the Herald. The report is from the committee of which Mr. Tiiden is chairman, and is accompanied by the dis sent of Ira Harris, a member of the committee. The following is a list of the acts recommended by the committee 1st. An set to amend the statute of dsviaes, and to extinguish certain tenures. This aot provides that no leases of real estate reserving rent, shall henceforth be made lor a longer period than ten years. That the rents, tic. of longer leases, now existing, shall pass by descent to the heirs of the original grantor; but that the tenant, by bill in Chancery, may convert the lease into a mortgage, according to a fair estimate of the value, and may have time showed to- pay off the mortgage. 3d. An act to equalize taxation. By this act a tax is to be laid on rents received by landlords. 3d. An act to abolish distress for rent. 4tb. An act concerning costs in courts of law. This j provides, that if a landlord, on sueing his tenant, does not recover damages to the amount of one hundred dollars ' or upwards, he shall not recover costs. It arpears highly probable that these bills, if pass* ed, would soon assuage all the difficulties existing on this question. The committee have bestowed ; great labor and research in their investigation of the whole matter, and in the legal enquiry upon ail the points before them. Very few questions are more important than this, in its bearing and effect on the politics of this State. Complexion op the State Convention.?The complexion of the convention to revise the consti tution, will be the moat varied of any assemblage that ever was convoked in the country. Every party, fragment, faction, and clique, into which all the political parties of the day are divided, are de voting their energies for the purpose of being repre sent id. The old whig and democratic parties, the natives, national reformers, abolitionists, anti-capi tal punishment men, anti-renters, old hunkers, and barn-burners, are all in the field, eager to secure a representation. If each of the cliquee and factions succeed, what a motley and diversified group will be there|! Blue spirits and white, red spirits and grey, all jostling together in the most admirable confusion, and each desirous of having a hand in tinkering the constitution, and healing the wounds of the State ! The Travbllino Season?Cheap Fares.?The favorite steamers Rhode Island and Massachusetts, so long and favorably known to the community, by a recent arrangement with the Postmaster Oeneral, carry the great Eastern mails, direct, between this city and Providence. No delay in their immediate transmission from Providence, on arrival, can take place, as we apprehended on Saturday?the Boston and Providence Railroad being obliged, by con tract, to run the mail trains from Providence on ar rival of mails from New York. These noble steam* era, especially built for the navigation of Long , Island Suund, it will be seen by their advertisement, ; leave pier No. 1 Battery Place, daily, excepting Sun- , day. This line has reduced the fare to $8 to Bos- j ton, and $2 to Providence. The competition between this city and Boston, and between New York and Albany, is reducing the price of passage to those points to a very low point. The day line to Boston, on the Long Island road, on the express plan, and at the reduced rates, goes into operation to-day. There are now five route s open to Boston. | Speed or the Steamer Traveller to New Haven?The Effect of the Maonetic Tele graph ?The famous steamer Traveller, Capt. Joel Stone, with hiB gentlemanly c erk, Mr. Edwin J. ; Bliss, has just made a remarkably short run to New Haven. She left this city at 3 o'clock on Friday af ternoon, and reached New Haven at 19 minutes ; past 7, thus making the trip from city to city, a dis tance of eighty-five miles, in 4 hours and 19 mi - nutes, the quickest run on record. This Traveller is a splendid steamer, and she has become quite celebrated for her speed. It will be recollected that she once crossed the Sound from Allyn's Point to Greenport, under adverse circum stances, in one hour and thirty-one minutes. She is owned by Cornelius Vanderbilt, Esq , a master spirit in steamboat enterprize. It is a remarkable fact in the progress of steam and electricity, that since the organization of the ocean steamship lines, the average length of the passages of our canvass-back packet ships has be. come considerably lessened, and we can now calcu . late almost to a day or two, upon the arrival of one ol them, as we did in the case of the Yorkshire. It is also a fact, equally remarkable, that since the in vention of the lightning lines, the speed of the steam vessels has increased; and we now have instances like the above, and of other steamers, making quick trips from place to place, accomplishing twenty to twenty-five miles within the hour, with perfect ease and safety. It thus appears, that in speed there are two points to gain. Owners of wind vessels endeavor to reach the speed of the steamers of the^iresent day, and the enterprising proprietors of the steamers keep their eyes upon the magnetic telegraphs. The Election in Connecticut.?'The annua election in this State takes place to-day, and it is reasonable to suppose, from past experience, that the whigs will succeed in electing their ticket, by the people and Legislature. This contest in Connecticut, is to be rather a warm one, as several exciting elements are to be brought to act on the feelings and passions of the miss. Temperance, wooden nutmegs, abolition ism, Texas, Oregon, the tarifl, the sub-treasury, <Scc , Arc., are to be brought into requisition on this occasion. All the excitement, however, will be local, and the result is already pretty well known. Robert Owen ?This gpntleman sailed os Satur. day in the Prince Albert, for London. He returns to England on the same benevolent mission that he has been engaged in for years. Mr. Owen is one of the most remarkable men of the age. From New Zealand ?The ship Robert Pulsford, Captain Caldwell, arrived last night from Auckland via. Pernambuco, having left the former place on the 21st of Nov. By her we have received files of the Timet, A<? Ztalander, and the Sidney Herald; they contain, however, no news of consequence. The 71im*sot the 15 h ol November nnneunc-s on that day the arrival of Capt. Gray from Port Adelaide? the newly appointed governor ol South Australia On the occasion of the recall of Capt Fiizrnv, the former governor, the people of Wellington and Nel son indulged in various kinds of merriment such as lighting bonfires, and tapping hogsheads. He leaves the colonies with none of the best wishes of the in habitants. [From the Time*, of Nov 16 1 We believe that evei7 thing is tranquil at the Bay ef Islands. A large additional military lorce Is expected (rota Sydney, so that it is elver that Sir M. CConnvll and Mir O Gipps have no idee of the in<lorious peace which we seem te have settled down into. It is rumorod io Sydney that Sir G Gipps is to be ; made Governor General of the Australasian Colonies (New Zealand included} with a salary of ir>,00u(. s year.

Jack Bhoppard Mrs. C. R Thorns will sastain hor original character in tho last piece, and wo doubt not tho thea tre will bo crowded by all lovers of sterling acting.? Tho Bowery has boon nightly thronged daring tho past weok, and tho enterprising manager, Mr. Jackson, is reaping a golden harvest Ths great secret of his suc cess may be found in the fact that ho spares neither in dustry or expense in producing a series of attractive novelties, and securing lor his establishment tho highest order of dramatic talent. Bo web v Amfhitheatbe.?Mr. Sands and his beautiful children make their debut this evening at this elegant temple of amusement, in their wonderful and graceful gymnastic esercises. Wherever they have appeared, these talented aritttit have drawn crowded houses and elicited expressions of admiration and astonishment from all beholders. At the forielitt in Paris, they per formed sixty-three consecutive nights, and at the Eng lish Opera House, London, were visited by the elite and curious. In this country they have been equally suc cessful, and their appearance at the Amphitheatre will ensure crowded bouses. In addition to this performance. Mr. Hands will introduce his celebrated thorough bred English horse " May Fly," his fairy steed "Cinderella," and the twin ponies, " Damon and Pythias." A talented troupe of equestrians will also appear during the even ing, in a variety oi daring and graceful feats. New Oeeehwicm Theatee ?This establishment has now been open to the public three nights, and we are satisfied is destined to become the favorite retort of our up-town population. It it easy of access, too, for those who reside in the lower part of tho city?the Oreenwich stages running within one square of it. The manage ? meat are enterprising and excellent caterers for the taste of their patrons?a talented dramatic and operatic corps have been engaged, surpassed by none in the city. This evening, "Othello" will be presented, Mr. Eddy making his first appearance before a New Tork audi deuce, as the noble jMoor. lago will be sustained by Mr. Orattan, and Hoderigo, by Mr. H. Chapman. Mta. Crisp and Miss Clara Ellis, who have already "won 5olden opinions from all sorts of people," will appear as lesdemona and Emilia- Miss H and Mias J. Vallee will appear in a new dance, and the evening's entertainment will close with the farce of "Uncle Sam," in which Mr. H. Chapman, decidedly the best low comedian on the stage, and the ctiarmiog petite Julia Drake, will sustain the principal characters. Falmo's OrxaA House.?The entertainments at this establishment are of the most attractive character. Mr. Nelson's " ancient dulcimer"?" the musical pine sticks." and 1" rock barmonicon," are instruments of a very novel character. Mr. Nelson manages to extract the sweetest music from them, however, and surprise and delight the diltetanti. Harrington and his boy per form some wonderful feats, and the Tyrolean minstrels receive the loud applause of fashionable audiences. The Gband Ode Stsiphoky.- In consequence of the signal success which attended the production of the ode symphony ,"J> Deetrt," at Mr. Loder's Concert on Thurs day evening, it will be repeated at the Tabernacle this evening, (Monday.) We are glad of this, for so grand and fine a work as this cannot be properly appreciated, or even thoroughly understood, at one hearing. This truly extraordinary |work, by Felicien David, should be heard by all classes, for its startling originality must have charms that will be appreciated by all. We trust to see the Tabernacle crowded on Monday evening, and for many evenings to come, and cordially recommend the performance to the patronage of the public.

Compared with prices current in the middle of the week, every stock in the list has fallen off, except Vicksburg. We are in the midst of stirring times, and are sun rounded with events of the most important character. - We look forward to the result of the various political movements which from time to time transpire, will the greatest anxiety. We cannot anticipate a very speedy settlement of the difficulties existing in on foreign relations. We do not look for a satisfactory compromise of the points at issue regarding the Ore gon territory. It by no means follows that the ao tion of the Senate will allay the excitement which ha been created, or that the matter will bo any nearer set tlement than it is at this moment. It is a question whe ther the compromise resolutions, which the 8ennte wil wit hout doubt pass, will not tend to keep this qaestioi open for months, and perhaps years. The diflsrenoe in opinion in relation to this matter, existing between the different branches of the government, will prevent ai speedy a settlement as the interests of the world ra< quire, and perhaps keep it open, and in a continual state of agitation, until it becomes a very important and prominent element in our local elaotiuns. It may no be doing justice to all the leaders in this affair, in both houses of Congress, to attribute the delay to a disposi tion te oerry it forward ??' r*!itiwt osmpnlgne ;btt it certainly appear i that many of the valiant leaders ex hibit such intentions. So long as this object is in view so long as legislation is carried on with such motives there can be no amicable arrangement of the question no immediate settlement of the difficulties. The debate upon this matter, in the Senate, assures ui that no compromise?if compromise is made at all?wil be submitted to on the part of our government, short o the 49th parallel, reserving for our exolnaive benefit th navigation of the Columbia liver. This will be thi most liberal compromise and the most satisfactory set tlement our government can accept or propose. Now, view of this fact, what probability is there of suoh an ar rangement being acceded to on the part of Great Britain At present, none; and if we come to the conclusion ths the refusal on the part of the British minister, of the offe made by Mr. Polk soon after his accession to office, wa sincere, and not for the purpose of forcing from us a bel tar offer, then we must believe that a similar offer mad again, would meet with a similar fate. We can draw I inference from the remarks of Sir Robert Peel, in rek tion to the course pursued by Mr. Pakenbam, ia not sal mitting that . ffer to his government. They may mea something, or nothing?the parties interested understaa each other perfectly welL We consider it a diplomati movement oi no great consequence in any way, units our legislators ?t Washington inland bning governed f the withes of ths British Ministry and the British Parlii mant. It may be construed, by the compromise part; into an indirect admission that if tb# offer had not be so promptly and peremptorily relused, it might hat boon more favorably entertained by the government, ei have bean made the basis of a compromise satisfactory both countries. Its refusal deprived the British mini try of any advantage it might have been to thorn in f tare negotiations, and served to commit tha British go ernmont still deeper, in their pretentions to territoi south of the 49th degree of latitado. Throe timea has tha government of Great Britain r fnaad at many offers mad# by the United States, te an cably settle this question, within the past twenty year three times arbitration has been proposed by the Britli government, end three timea refused ; the last refill was as decided and a* positive as that of the 49th 4 gree by Mr. Pakenham; and if wa may judge from t circumstances connected with each, naithar can bo i rived; neither can be accepted, and tba qnaetion, if ai i cably settled, must be settled in some other woy th : arbitration, and upon some other baaia than the fort ninth degree of latitude. Wo wish to bo understood j merely drawing conclusions from certain promiios?n a* results which cannot be avoided, for wa bevo gn faith in an amicable arrangement of this question, spite of the numerous difficulties with which it ie present surrounded. Great Britain once refined to sgttie the boundaries tha North Western territory upon a baaia which si has aioce signified a willingness to accept, if again off ad. That government baa endeavored to prove that t line she one# refused, ie in fact tha only lino she con arrange the boundary upon; that by every treaty, k in existence, her rights to that parallel were distinct [ defined Although tho lino sho now contends for, once been refused, no other of a lese liberal nature I ; been for a moment entertained, and wa have no gross l to base a belief that a teas liberal offer will now bo copted. The navigation of the Colombia river ia, a has been, a tin* qui rum with tha government of On Britain, and that claim haa never been relinquish! We have no reason to suppose that it will bo now. compromise, therefore, talked of in the Senate, doeai come down to tho line died upon by Enplend, and I the opinion of many that any contemplated concessit on our part, will onlr tend to strengthen tho positi taken by Oreat "Britain, in claiming tha navigation tha Columbia river and all tba territory north of ti on 1st. Should such bn the effect of the deity expe ended in bringing this question into some ehspe tn I Semite, we shell be as far from an amicable aettiemi at evi r; and the fifty four forty party will havo tho c dlt, at least, of consistency and a regard for tho hoi and interest of tho country, greater than that of tho co promisq party. Notwithstanding these things, wa cannot resist impression that a war betwoon tha United Slates i , Oreat Britain, is entirely ont of the qneetion. The ( conntries are so intimately connected In all their co ; morale] relations, that a rupture batween them wo; result in consequence* ruinous to the oitiaena of oo and to tho world at largo.
