Are wc lo have lVar about
The g ivins out from Washington of
the course which those who hold the
reins of government for the time being
intended to pursue in regard to the Ore
gon question, have excited considerable
apprehension in the public mind, of a dis
turbance of the present peaceful relations
existing between the United States and
Great Britain; and the question is" often
asked, 'are wc to have war with Eng
land? For ourselves, we cannot believe that
any two nations whose interests are so
closely blended as those of the United
States" and Great Britain, whose interests
must be so deeply and seriously affected
I)' such a calamity, whose people pos
sess so much good sense and sound dis
cretion as do those of both these nations
and whose public opinion lias such a
controlling influence upon their respect
ive rulers, will suffer them to commit
bncli an act of folly.
We arc not going to advocate the Brit
ish claim to any part of Oregon, nor de
ny our own to the whole of it; but admit
ting it to be a perfect title, what are we
to gain as a nation by a war with Eng
land at this time? Shall wc establish our
title to the country in dispute! Shall wc
secure exclusive possession of it? In our
humble judgement, we shall do neither
by a dcclatraion of war. It is well known
that both countries have claimed this
territory ever since the last war; and that
negotiation, upon negotiation has been
entcrend into for the purpose of settling
the respective claims of the two countries
hut with no favoroble result; and further
that a compromise, a joint occupancy
of the country, for the last twenty seven
years, has existed by agreement.
Under this arrangement, for many
years the British settlers were more nu
merous than ours but for four or five
years past, the tide of emigration from
the United States has set across the
Jlocky Mountains with a constantly in
creasing strength untd it is probable that
full one half of the inhabitants arc Ameri
crns or emigrants from the States. We
know that in 1841, the Secretary of the
Navy took measures to encourage emi
gration to Oregon in order to counteract
the influence and the power of the Brit
ish population there, and had the policy
- adopted been quietly pursued, as it was
intended it should be, by the government
the Americans M ould, even by this time
have considerably out numbered, tl
lintisn settlers; and in ten years more
the country would have been ours by
possesston without a shadow of a quar
rcl with England in regard to it. Ameri
cans iroinrr there Mould have carried
vih them their love of libertv and at
tachment to a republican government, and
whether they might have chosen to attach
themselves to the United States or to
have formed an independant government
for themselves; it is certain they would
never have consented to come under
Why was not this wise policy contin
ued. Why when we were silently ,but rapid
ly getting possession of the territory, need
wc make a rumpus about it, and talk of
using force. Did we suppose that it was
easier, or more manly or more wise to
seize upon it, than to wait the operation
of those silent causes which were sure to
place it in our hands, in a short lime,
without a M'ord of disturbance? Not so,
no such reason operated upon those who
have stirred up this pool of bitter waters.
Their object was to make a little politi
cal capital out of the crv. They knew
that the masses love the idea of getting te
ritory of aggrandizing the nation by ex
tending its boundaries, and whether the
cry which thus won their favor, should
lead to a war and the loss of the whole
territory ,or not,they cared not so it served
the purpose of putting the m into power.

words to lead the masses in 181 I. The
great object to be gained by those who
