S? i 1 W 10 EW YORK, THURSDAY THE OREGON TREATY. 1 [confidential.] Metiagr from tKi Prttidtnl of tkt Unit*J State*, cnmnfnicatint a proportion on tit part of tike British Govtrnmtntfvr tlif aJjnHmut of the Orfjun question. [June 10, 1s46?reVi] To the Senate of tk* Uiiiei Statu t ? 1 lay l>elor? the Senate a proposal in the lorn of a Convention, presented to the Set-rotary of Stato on the Oth ; intt. by the fcuvoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of her Britannic Maietty, forth* nljuitm^nt of the Oregon question, together wih a protocol of thla proceeding. .1 iubmil this proposal to th* consideration of the Senate, and ieque.t their advice a* to the action which, in their judgment, it may be proper to tako in reference to it. 4 In the early period" of tho government, the opinion and advice of the Senate were otien taken in advance upon important quertioni of our foreign policy. Gonoral WaihI iugton repeatedly consulted tho Senate and aaked thnir 1 previous advice, to which he always conformed his action. Thin practice, though rarely resorted to in later times, wai, in my judgment, eminently wise, and may, on i occasion* of great importance, be properly revived. The { Senate are a braooh of the treaty-making power, and by | consulting then in advance of hia own action, upon i important measures of foreign policy which may ultimately come before them for consideration, the President secures harmony of action between that body and himself The Senate are, moreover a branch of the warmaking power, and it may be eminently proper for the Executive to take the opinion and advice of inatbody in ndvance upon any great question which may involve in its decision the iasue of peace or war. On the present occasion the magnitude of the subject would induce me, under any circumstances, to desire the previous advice of tho Senate, and that desire is increased by the recent debates and proceedings in Congress, which render it, in my judgment, cot only reepectlul to the Senate, but necessary and proper, if not indispensable to iaeure harmonious action between that body and the txeentive in conferring on the Executive the authority to give the notice lor the abrogation ot the Convention of It)/?, the Senate acted publicly so large a part, that the deckson on the proposal now made by the British government, without a definite knowledge of the views of that body in reference to it, might lender the question still mora complicated and difficult of adjustment. For these reasons, 1 invite tho consideration of the Senate to the proposal of the Briti-h government for the settlement of tiie Oregon question, and ask their advice on the subject.

To h'r Majtity VWTOKIK. Queen ?/the United Kingdom tf Vt tut Britain and Ireland, tie etc * Whereas, the Congress of the United States hove adopted a "Joint Resolution concerning ihe Oregon territory" of which the following is a copy : " Whereas, by tne convention concluded the twentieth day of October, oighteen hundred and eighteen, between the United States of America and the King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, for the period of ten years, and afterwards indefinitely extended and continued in force by another convention of the same parties, concluded the sixth day of August, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred aad twenty-seven, it was agreed that any country that may be claimed by either party on the north-west coast of America, westward of the Stony or Rocky Mountains, now commonly called the Oregon Territory, should, together with its harbors, bays and creeks, and the navigation of all rivers within the aame, be ' free and open' to the vessels, citizen* and subject* of the two powen, but without prejudice to any claim which either of the partie* might have to any nart of ?aid country ; and with thi* further provision, in the eecond article oif the said convention of the sixth of August, eighteen hundred and twenty-seven, that either party mignt abrogate and annul said convention, on giving due notice of twelve months to the other contracting party. * " And wheteaa it has now become desirable that the respective claims of the United States and (ireat Britain should be deftnitely settled, and that said territory may no longer than need be remain subject to the evil consequence of the divided allegiance of ita American and British population, and of toe confusion and conflict of national jurisdiction, dangerous to the cherished peace and good understanding oi the two countries. " With * view, therefore, that steps be taken for the abrogation of the said convention oi the sixth of August, eighteen hundred and twenty-seven, in the mode prescribed in its second article, end that the attention of the Government ol both countries may be the more earnestly directed to the adoption of all proper measures for a speedy and amicablo adjustment of the differences and dispute* in regard to the (aid territory : " Resolved bv the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congiess assembled, That the President ef the United States be, and he *r " T A ? J+ \ ' * ? * ? +, "* RK I MORNING, JULY 23,18 for thit purpose, and without lot* of time, finally to execute your instructions in the mode that mar be deemed moit effectual. I may add, that although it la altogether probable that the presentation of the notice to her Majesty in oerton will not b? admiiaibie. and that where a treaty may be annulled upon notice by one party, the mode of delivering the notice need not be dependent upon the assent of tne other; vet, in the present instance, I do not apprehend there will be any difficulty in giving and receiving the notico in a mode mutuall) satisfactory, and in conformity with usages in such cases. ? ? ? ? I have now to acquaint you, that afer the receipt of your despatches on the 16th inst. by the Caledonia, I had a lengthy conference with Lord Aberdeen; on which occasion the resumption of the negotiation for an amicablo settlement of the Otwua question; and the nature of tiie proposition he cotaPiplated submitting for that 'purpose, formed the subject of a full and free conversation. ( have now to state, that instruction* will be transmitted to Mr. Pakenhom by the steamer of to-morrow, to submit a new and further proposition on the pert of this government, for a partition of the territory in dispute. The proposition, most probably, will offer substantially First?To divide the territory by the extension of the , line on the parallel of forty-nine to the sea; that is to say, to the arm of the sea called Birch's lay, thence by j the Caaal de Arro and Straits oi Fuca to the ocean; and confirming to the United UUtes?what indeed they would possess without any special confirmation?the right freely to u*o and navigate the Strait throughout its extent. Second?to secure to the British subjects occupying lands, forts, and stations, any where in the region north of the Columbia and south of the forty-ninth parallel, a perpetual title to all their lands and stations of which the) may be in actual occupation ; liable, however, iu all respects, as I understand, to the jurisdiction and sovr*ivntv nf th?* lTnitirl Mtjtm as rilivana nf (Kn Ifniu.! States. Similar privilege! will be offered to be extended td citizens of the United State* who may hare settlements north of the forty-ninth parallel; though I pre one it is pretty well understood, that there are no settlement* upon which thii nominal mutuality could operate. I hare no mean* of accurately ascertaining the extent ol the present British settlements between the Columbia and the forty-ninth parallel. They are not believed by Lord Aberdeen to be numerous, however, consisting, as he supposes, of a few private farms, and two or three forts and stations. I have already in a private despatch. Wlcrn the liberty to remind you that by their charter, the Hudson's Bay Company are prohibited from acquiring title to lands, and thxt the occupations to be aflVcred by this reservation have been made, either by the squatters of the Company, or by the Puget's Sound Land Company, fer the purpose of evading the prohibition of the Hudson's Bay charter They are in point of fact, also, according to CapL Wilkes' account cultivated and used chiefly by the persons employed in the service of the former company, and as auxiliary to their general business of hunting and trapping, rather than with a view, as it has been generally supposed, of colonizing, or of permanent settlement. Lastly?The proposition will demand for the Hudscn's Bay Com^kiy the right of freely aavlgating the Columbia river, it will, however, as I understand, disclaim the idea of sovereignty, or of the right of exercising any jurisdiction or police whatever, on the part of the government or of the Company, and will contemplate only the right of navigating the river upon the same footing and according to the same regulations a* may be applicable to the citizen* of the United States. I have already aoq(tainted you that Lord Aberdeen has very positively and explicitly declined to treat of the navigation of the St Lawrence in connection with that of the Columbia ; and that even if it were desirable in us to propose to offer one for the other, he would on no aocount enter Into any negotiation in regard to the St. Lawrence. * * * * I have seen no cause to change the opinion, that in any attempt to divide the Oregon territory, the obligation felt by this government to protect the rights of their subjects, which may hare been acquired or have grown up during the jeint occupation, would most probably interpose the greatest difficulty in the way of an amicable adjustment. And it is now obvious that the proposed reservation of the right to the Hudson's Bay Company of freely navigating the Columbia, and that in favor of the British occupants north of the river, proceed from this source ; although it is probable that more or less pride may be felt fct giving up now, without what they may deem an adequate equivalent, what has been hitherto tendered by our negotiators. In fact, except in the surrender to the United States of the title of the lands not occupied by British subjects between the Columbia and the 4Wth parallel, and also the surrender of the juriadiction over the river and the country within the same ligiits, I am afraid it may, with some plausibility, be contended that there is no material difference between th- present proposition and that offered to Mr. Gallatin by Messrs. Addingten and Hus kisson, the Britisu negotiators, in 1837. It is scarcely necessary for me to state that the proposition, as now submitted, has not received my countenance. have, therefore, felt it my dutj to di'courage the expectation that it would be accepted by the Tieiidunt; or, if submitted to that body, approved by the Senate. I do not think there can be much doubt, however, that an impression has been produced here that the Senate wouid accept the proposition now offered, at least without any material modification, and that the President would not take the responsibility of rejecting it without consulting the Senate. If there be any reasonable ground to entertain such an impression, however eironeous, an offer loss objectionable, in the first instance at least, could hardly be expected. li uiay ?' bvumuviHu wji uuu, nvu, ju uit vpiuiuu, urn tba offer now to be made U not to be submitted as en ultimatum, and 11 not intended ai aueh ; though I have reason to know Mr. Pakenham will not be authorized to accept or reject any modification that may be proposed on our part; but that he will, in luch case, be instructed to refer the modification to hii government. It is not to be disguised, since the President'* aanual message, and the public discunioa that has subsequently taken ulace in the Senate, it will be difficult, if not impossible, to conduct the negotiation in it* future stages, , without reference to the opinion of Senators, or free j from speculation aa to any degree of control they may exercise over the result. Whatever therefore might be prudent and regular in the ordinary coarse of things. I think it is of the utmost importance, upon the present occasion, if the President should think proper to propose any modification of the offer to be made by iMr Paken ham, that tho modification should be understood an possessing the concurrence of the co-ordinate branch of the treaty power. It is not easy to conjecture, with any certainty, the extent to which this Government might be induced to modify the propoaition, even if they should be assured that the Senate, no las* than the President, demanded it. it must not escape observation that, during the preceding administration oi our Government, the extension of the line on the 49th parallel to the Strait of Fuca, as now proposed by Lord Aberdeen, was actually suggested by my immediate predecessor as one he thought his Government might accept : and that, in regard to those Knglish subjects who would be left within American jurisdiction by adopting that boundary, he considered the provisions of the second article of J ay'a treaty as a precedent for a convenient mode of dealing with them By the second article of Jay'a treaty, however, Br|. tish subjects would not only be-secured in the absolute title of all their lands and effects as fully as by Lord Aberdeen's proposition, hut would be allowed the option to continue as'British subjects and without any allegiance to the government of the United States; which, according to Lord Aberdeen's offer, as I understand it, they would not possess. In point of fact, therefore, the sub stantial points of the present offer, and those which may be expected to he regarded as moat objectionable, are little more than the embodiment of the various offers and uggeatioiis which at different times have, in some form or other, proceeded from our own negotiators. I have myself always believed, if the extension of the line of boundary on the 49th parallel by the Strait of Fuca t? the sea would be acceptable to oar government, that the demand of a right freely to navigate the Columbia river, could he compromised upon a point of time, by conceding it fot such a period as might be necessary for the trade of the Hudson's Bay Company, north and south ef the forty ninth parallel. Kntertaining great confidence in that opinion, and deeming it only reasonable, I confess that, iron, an early period, I nave used every srgument and persuasion in my power to reconcile Lord Aberdeen to such a limitation; and, although I am quite aware that, with a portion of the British public, an importance it bv 110 means deserves, is attached to the navigation 01 the Columbia river, and that in others it is undeservedly n-ganled as a point ol pride, I have been disappointed by the pertinacity with which it haa been, at so much risk, insisted upon. Feeling very sure, however, that the present offer is not made or intended a* an ultimatum. 1 think it only reasonable to infer an expectation on the part of those who are offering it,net only that modifications may be suggested, but that they may be reasonably required. And therefore, I still entertain the opinion that, although from a variety of eaeses? in part, perhaps, from an expectation that in the United States this point may not be absolutely insisted upon, and in part from deference to interests and Impressions at home?they could not be induced in the first Instance to make an offer with suck a qualification; yet, if the ad^astaent of the question should be found to depend upon this point only, (hey would yield the demand to the permanent navigation of the ri ver, and b? content to aocept it for inch a numbar of yeara, aa would afford all the aobitantial advantage! to those intaraata thay have particularly in riew tUat could ba raaaonably desired. If the anly quaation upon which he adjustn.' nt af the Oregon quaation depended should be, whether the navigation of the Columbia river should be granted for a period, sufficient to aubeerve all the purpole i of Bri'iah subjects within the disputed territory, or whether the right ahould bo extended indefinitely to a particular class of Brltiah subjects, 1 mutt believe that no Kngiish statesman in the face of hia denial of a similar privilege to American citizen* in regard to the ttt. Lawrence, would take the hazard upon thia point alone, of diatnrbing the peace of tha world. Indeed, if the line mini*try from whom the preeent offer proceed*, ahould continue matter* of their own proposition by remaining in ofllca until tha qualification I am adverting to, would have to ba dealt with, I ahould feel antira confidence ia tha belief I have now esareeead. I regret to My, however, that I have not tha least expectation that a laaa reservation, if proposed, ia flavor of (ha occupant* of land between tha Columbia and the forty-ninth parallel, would ba assented to. 1 may repeat my conviotion.founded upon all tha dieensetoneia which I have been engaged here, that in making partition ol tha Oragon territory, the protection ol thoea intereats which have grown up darinc the Joint occupation ia regarded as an ladiapaaaeMa obligation on tha eeora of hener, and as Impossible to be neglected. 1 am quite aura that It was at one ttae in contemplation to lneist upon the free navigation of the Columbia river fttr British subjects end , British commerce generally; and that it haa been ultl Mtaly confined to the Hudson's Bay Company after I IERA 46. rr?*t reiiitancn, and in th? end mo?t reluctantly. Beinir I io confirmed, however, it would be only reasonable to limit the employment of the right to a period beyond which the Company might have mo great object to use the river for the purposes of trade. But the iatereiM of the British subject* who have settled upon and are occupying lands North of the forty-ninth, are considered as permanent, and entitled,when passing under a new iurisdiction. to have their possession secured. This, at least, Is the view taken of tue subject by this government, and not at all likely, in my opinion, to be changed. 1 inay a'td.too. thit I have not the least reason to suppose it wouldfea possible to obtain the extension of the 49th ptrallel to the sea, so as to give the Southern Cape of Vancouver's Island to the United States. It may not be amiss before leaving this subject, to call j your atteatlon to the position of the present ministry. The success of their measures respecting the proposed commercial relaxations is quite certain. anJ the corn bill having now finally passed the House of Commons, may be expected at uo remote day to pass the Lords by a majority no li u derisive. From 'hat time, however, the tie which has hitherto kept the whig party in support of Sir Robert Peel, will bo dissolved; and the determination of the protectionist party, who suppose themselves to have b ten betrayed, to drive him from office, has lost none of it* vigor or power. Indeed, it is coafidently reporte I in quarters entitled to great respect, that they nave even ottered to tlio leader of the whig party to select hi* own time, and that when ha is raaity, thov will be uo less prepared to force ministers to resign. I have reBHUii 10 kquw uiH'., a. nrBiBiu, itunnion luniuteiTfs believe a change to be inevitable, and aie considering only the mode and the time in which it will most likrly happen. It will not ha long, alter the success of the measure! for the repeal of the " corn laws," before opportunities enough for the accomplishment of thii object will occur. The " factory bill" regulating the hour* of labor, will afford one, and most probably that on which the change will take place. With a knowledge that the change, sooner or later, must be unavoidable, and that the offer has been made to the probable head of a new ministry to select his own time, may it not be expected that, insteal of waiting ijuietly to allow the whig leader to select the time of coming in, the p.-esent minister will rather select his own time and mode of going out, and with his usual sagacity to regulate his retirement as to leave as few obstacles as possible to his i restoration to power? In that case, it is not very unlikely ha would prefer going out upon the " factory ' bill." before taking ground upon mora important measures ?and if to. it will not surprise me to witness the comiu< 1 in of a new Minintry at the end of June or earlier. With a knowledge of the proposition now to be made, I am not prepared to say that one more objectionable might have been apprehended from a Whig mi.iistry ; unless, indeed, the present government may be supposed to be prepared to accept the qualifications when proposed by the President,which it waa unwilling at first to offee. Upon that supposition, it might be desirable that the modifications should be offered before the coming in of a new Minister, who, finding only the acts of his predecessor*, without a knowledge of hi* intention*, might not be *o ready to take the responsibility of assenting to a changeTo THE SlKiTt or THE UNITED StITM t?

Congress Hall, which seems to have passed through as many phases as were ever chronicled of the inoon, and lived as many lives as a cat, is known as Hotel Pius Second. Rev. L)r. C. is there, and the Rev. Mrs. C. is also there. This is the Doctor's bridal tour, postponed till the present on account of the weather. All Saratoga is agog to know what the clerk of the seasons has found to so provoke htm to chill our youthful feelings. Did you, dear 1 Daily, how your popularity widens. What would become of us, tnis wintry weather, but for the impulse we receive from tne Herald. Newport, July 12, 1846. The' Weather and the Panoramic Viewi?Muric ana lntuirm The weather to-day is delicious. We Lava the climate of the Orient. The sea-breexe faqp the fevered brow. The sun is sliining brightly, but the Narraganset zephyr baffles his burning beam. In spite his efforts, we are all cool?cool and comfortable. The day is bright as a new dollar. From my window the white cliffs of Block Island are plainly visible, and appear to be at a distance of three, instead of thirty miles. I think with n g?od telescope now, I could lay my hands upon them. Fifty white sails are outlined against the pale blue sky, standing to and from your great metropolis. Between Block Island and the Xurrngatiset Buy, is perhaps as great a thoroughfare for ships as exists upon the ocean. Seldom fewer than fifty sail are visible from the hills of Newport, and frequently twice that number may be seen. To-day the atmosphere is more than ordinarily translucent. The whole scene around me is a bright picture. The field* are green, the ocean azure, and the sky of a soft pale bine, without a cloud?just such a sky as might have spanned l'tirad^e ! To see the panorama that is new spread before , me is worth the expense of a long journey. It is with some difficulty that I can keep my eyes off it while penning tiiese lines. On such a scene you not only gaze without tiring, but new beauties are constantly springing up to fasten and fascinate you. Now two ships are locking their spars on the far horizon, and form for awhile the apneararice ol a huge white wall with perpendicular sides, rising out of the ocean. In a moment more they separate, and the illusion vanishes. Now a vessel is standing from you, and you are cheated in to the beliel that she is a tight-house, or some great tower. In a lew minutes she has changed tier tack, and seems a ship again. Notuntiequentiy, a Meet of schooaers and sloops m?y be seen standing on the same tack, and racing like a regular regatta. So you see this is.?omewhatof a changing panorama, and so much the more interesting. To-day, being the Lord's day, we do not expect any fresh arrivals, but we have enough already to inake merry with. The churches, I believe, are well attended. There are some ten or a dozen of them in this place. But if you are not a church-going man, you can worship nature and nature's God, to great advantage here, by wandering along the wild ocean cliff*, listening to the ceaseless roar of the breakers, and watching the snow white gull in its endless flight; or you may stroll through shady lanes and sweet green fields ; where, amidst the perfume of fragrant flowers. I you may worship in your own way. Birds will be singing, bees will l>e humnruag around you, but they will not interrupt your devotions. O ir splendid German band of " fnsicians," is expected here to-morrow, armed with every kind of instrument. Hitherto the dancing has been " done" to the piano, but when the I landmen arrive, we will not only dance, but dine to music. xcoaiEit. Constitutional Convention. Tcsipit, Jaly SI, 194(1.
