Correspondence of the Char. Courier.
wAsHiNGToN. April S.
Mr. Webster continued, to day, his
ir umentasive, historical, and vindica
tory speech on the treaty of Washing
ton of 1842.
The Senate chamber was again crowd
ed to excess. and the orator's words
were eagerly and attentively listened to.
Mr. Webster felt himself compelled to
defend his course on this subject, inas
much as it had been made the topic of
disparagement and vituperation, and
misrepresentation, by some of the ultra
Oregon members in the Oregon debate,
in both Houses.
Mr. W. reviewed the whole question,
from its origin in 1783. through all the
various diplomatic correspondence on
the subject, in order to shew that when
he took it up it was farther from adjuste
meW than evcr, and that it had become
entangled in a mesh of diplomacy from
which it seemed impossible to r'xtricate
it. He then reviewed the provisions of
the treaty and the questions which had
become connected with them-the Car
oline and McLeod afltir, &c. His de
fence of the treaty was triumphant.
But it hardily needed defence, for it
was ratified by a vote of five-sixths of
the Seite, and was genet ally approved
by the people.
The ultra Oregon party had condemn,
ed it as a total abandonment of all our
rights, and had given it as a reason why
no more negotiation should be had on
the Oregon- question. In doing this,
they hatd charged Mr. Webster with di
rect and pal)able interference with the
Sate Judiciary of New York in the
Mr. Webster was excessively severe
in hi's treatment of Mr. C J. ingersoll
and Mr. Dicakirs.'n. of N w York. No
phillipic ofihe kind was- ever before
pronounred?/in the Senate. He was
never befosr more excited, indignant,
and eloquent than in treating of these
assaults and miisrepresentations.
He-demonstfaied tigram-,u hp treaty

the opinions of Col. Totten and Com
modore Morris, who made a military
survey to that portion of the country, to

Mr. W. dwelt at length on the mis
representations of this affair, made in
the published speeches of Mr. C.J. In,
gersoll and Mt. Dickinson. It was the
most excruciating and cin Hting infective
ever heat d. There is nothing in Burke
or Sheriden that compares with it.
The other provisions of the treaty
and the correspondence also he review
ed, with thy' pur pose of shewing that
they had done much to secure thi great
prin:-iplte of the equality of nations on
the seas, and the principle that the flag
shall piotect the vessel and crews from
search or impressment.

Mr. J. M. Clayton's resolution, call
ing on the President for any further cor
tespondence that may have taken pilace
on th. Orad~on question, was discussed.
Mr. Clayton ins'sed tupon thme adoptmiin
of the resolution, and intimated that
many Senarors would not be ieady to

informdtion should be received, though
he was himself prepamred to vote fir
the notice, wvhether there waus any r.ego
tiation in tprogress or not.
Mr. Alien objected to it as disrespect,.
ful to the President. These repeated
catlls upon him implied distrust of his
capacity or integrity, anid would have a
had effect on our foteign relations.
When lie proposed a similar call on M~rr.
Tyler, it was voted down, and Mr.
Mooreheadl made a speech against it.

a further call. Mi. Catlhon's reply to
Mt Allen on this sulj'ct, will be found
to be very d.-cided and characteristic.
He has shown that it is the right and
duty of tl Senate to obtain all this in.
formation, before they vote on the ques

Mr. W,-hster's castigation and scOttifi;

resented by the latter in a manner that
threw the House into a ferment, and
may yet occasion much more agitati--n.
Abandoning the former charizes, Mr.
Ingersoll made a new issue, and charged
M. Webster with misdemeanor in office,
as Secretary of State. Ile said he had
not known the facts till this time,and imii
mnated that he had been recently and
officially informne-l of thet. He charges
that Mr. Webster used thy secret ser
vice money for his own corrupt pur
poses; that he rsed it in corrupting the
press, and in prommting the liberation of
McLeod. He had taken this co'urse on
account of the gross attack made,
through him, on the representative char

Mr. 1 og.rsoll offered the following
resolutions, which, as subsrqtently mod

American Spirit-A Small Mistake
We annouacedl on Saturday'the ar-rival in
Co.ve Harbor, of the U. S. pilot schooner,
W. J. Romer. 84 tons, from New York,
having otn board a gentleman supposed to
be a bearer or official despatches, who at
once proceeded to Lontdn. Otn her arrival,
wiltb the Amnerican flag flying at the mast
head, a Lieutenant of lier M~Iajesty's Van
guard nuas dle'patched with orders, as we
utnderstand, from the Adlmiratlty, to re
quire that the flag should at once he taken
down. Captaini Maguire, of the Romner,
received the Briih officer with much
courtesy, invite,l him down into the cabin,
and hiavitng been made acquainted with
the object-of his visit, the Americani's re
ply was characteristic. "So Iong." said
he, "as I havre an arm to pull a triggerf
no maut shall dare touch that flag!" This
prompt reply puzzled the Britisher Dot a
little, lHe returned to hi. ship for further
orders, and in a short time came back to
'the American officer with an ample apol

LATER FROM MEX[CO AND TEXAS.
Later from the United States Army on
the Rio Grande.-Since the publication of
the Picayune of this morning, the steam
ship New York has arrived, bringing two
days later news from Gen. Taylor's army,
We learn from an extra of the Galveston
News, issued on the afternoon of the 4th
inst., that the pilot boat L. M. Hitchaock,
Capt. Wright, arrived at Galveston about
4 o'clock, P. M., of that day, from the
Brazos St. Jago, which place she left on
Wednesday, the 1st inst. She brought
the intelligence that upon the arrival of
the Army of Occupation, in front of Mat
amoros, the Mexican forces were drawn
out on the opposite bank of the river,
making a great display of martial music,
with trumpets, bugles, &c., which mode
of salutation was duly reciprocated in kind
by a similar sounding of trumpets and
drums in the American lines. Thus end
ed the first day's rencounter between the
two armies on the opposite banks of the
Rio Grande, and within two or three hun
dred yards of each other. On the next
morning, 29th, the American troops dis
covered the Mexican artillery of eighteen
pounders lining the opposite bank, and
pointing direct!y into their camp, where
upon the American army moved their
encampment four miles below. This step
was doubtless taken by Gen. Taylor in
order to avoid every appearance of any
disposition to commit aggression upon the
west bank or the river, and to maintain
strictly the defensive character of his ope
rations. The most reliable statements
represent the regular army in Matamoros
to consist of 2000 soldiers and 500 ranche
ros. The Mexican citizens of the Rio
Grande are said to be quite disaffected to

From South Aineric.-Advises from
Monte Video to the 9th Jan. and Buenos
Ayres to the 5th, have been received at
New York. From the "Sun" we extract
the following information :
On the 21st Dec. the French and Eng
lish Ministers Plenipotentiary protested
against the Argentine decree which had
outlawed the merchant vessels proceeding
up the Parana with the allied fleets.
President Rosas sent in his message to the
Legislature on the 27th Dec., in which he
reviews the condition of country and ur
ges the propriety of demanding indemni
fication from France and England for the
outrages being committed upon the Ar
gentiob territories. He speaks of the
United States in terms of praise and ad
miratioa, and alludes to the rejection of
our proffered mediation by the English
and French Plenipotentiarios. The alli
ed fleets appear to have gained no new
advantages. The war is at a stand for
the present, with the exception of some
skirmishing in Uruguay, which is now
prucipally in possession of Oribe, the le
gal governor. Reinforcements have been
ordered from England and France.

True Reform.-The true reformer
is calm and mild, mighty against siti
hurling burning truths at every wrong,
bul still pl-eservine, amid it all a loving
heart. He is fearless and unfaltering-#
he presses right on with his mission;
but he does not court persecution, or
pray for martyrdom He is contented.,
to let truth bide its time, and is careful
that he does not injure it by rashness
and impropriety, as much as by slug:
gishaness or denial. He will not be angry
if men do not believe him at the first
announcenient. He is content if he
may only preach the truth, for he kno*s
that once scattered abroad, i; can never
die. It may not blossom until long aftel
he is dead,-but what of that? - The
summer rains and winter snows shalt
work for it ; and long after his voice is
hushed, and his eye dark, his 'very dust
shall nourish it, for it will blossom at
last I Such is the true reformer.. ou
see the rash and .anery radical differs
in much from him.-E. H t.hapi*.
Furgiveness.-There is no virtue of
the human heart which so much adorns
the life and character of an individual. not
no duty more enjoined. upon the christian
than that of forgivenness. For proof of
this, look at the examples of Christ, *ho
while suffering upon the cross, by the hands
of his enemies, exclaims in the anguish of
his soul. " Father forgive them, for they
know not what they do." How noble th6
senliment !-How pure its author ! And
shall man "created but a little lower tbad
the angels." fail to imitate the example of
him in whom there yens uno guile." Or
shall he so debase himself towards his
brother man ? So prone are we. all- to stria

other hand, it. we forgive 'hose vho tree.
pass against us. we shall, by so. doings
obey the injunction of Christ, and contri

us. and advance our o*n happiness. We
should see less of the spirit of retaliatioti
which now reigns in our midst, and like
the destroying pestilence, spreading des
olation wherever it goes. If the poisonous
darts of slander are hurled to crush out
hopes, and darken our prospects. *e
hould remember that "to err is human,".
and freely forgive the offender. It will
only increase the amount of guilt, by
cherishing illwill towards our fellow sten,
however great the oflence may be. But
0, 'tis blessed to forgive ! To "do unto
others as we would they should unto us ;"
thus filling the hearts of the sons of men
with joy and not with grief. Let us then,
if we would render ourselves orhatnents
to society. and beloved by the worthy and
virtuous, cherish the Christ-like spirit of
forgiveness, and we cannot fail to be hap

Profanity Rebuked.-Tle lodge of Odd
Fellows in Bridgewater, Mass.; have pas
ed the following resolution:
"That profane swearing is a wanton
and unprovoked vice, not induced by any
temptation of honor or gain, a breach of
common decency and common courtesy
in the cotmmon intercourse of- man with.
man, and recommend that a brother who
