Cotton.-Our Hamburgeorrespondent under

week at irregular prices, ranging from 54 to 7
cents. I think there has beet,-lore disposition
on the panof buyers to operate for the last few
days, but they have not been able to purchase
to any extent, on account of the small quanrit)
offering. and the disposition on the part of hold

believe they will cause any change in prices.

proposition of the British Government, for a

conver's Island to England. and the free navi.
gation of the Columbia river, during the Char

cated, Ist.even.ing, bya vote of 38 to !', thle
Seniate advised the President to make a treaty,
accepting the proposition of the British Govertn
mient. Of course, it will be made, aitd imme
diately ratified'by thme Senate.
Your obedient ndrvant..

Mr. Calhoun.-The correspondent of the
Charleston Mercury, (Nous VuaoNs.) has the
following paragraph. which is as eloquent as it
isjust and appropriate:
" Of your delegation in Congress. you have
just cause to he proud. especially of himt, who
wso long in the councils of the country, has shed
a heroic lustre on the verb name of tonth Car
olina. I kntow of no more strikinig proof of the
high reverence nniversally felt for this great
statesman. titan the late course or forbearanice
towards him by the whole press of the conry
wvith regard to his vote on the Mexican war
hiJL. Although standing alone on this exciting
atni delicate questiotn, so perfect is the convic
tion ol his hi h integrity, and the pure motives
wvhich actunted him, that not a word el imptuta
ton orfeinroach has been heard from the whole
press, Whig or Democratic. It is so clear that
conscientious. convictiotis overruled all lower
and meaner ,motives of interest and popularity
in zhe~course he pursued, that even those who
most hate him, dare not strike at the majestic
moral courage which crowned his whole con
duct. I tuderstmnd that all his friends,although
they mhay have differed from him, were never
more umted to their'admiration of his tran

been sent to the Senate for ratification.

The co:respondence from Washington gives
us the intelligence. (whether true or not we
cannot say,) that even now, the President has
said, that the Mexican war will be brought to a
conclusion. within sixty days, by the mediationi
of the British Government. One thing is sure,
that whilst we are threatened by no other na
tion, and left to direct -ur undivided energies
against Mexico alone, we can crush her to atoms
in a few months at the farthest extent of time.
It is certainly' a great blessing to this country
that the Oregon treaty has been signed' at this
precise point of time. It is said at Washington,
that if the news of the Mexican war had reach
ed England six days earlier, before Mr. Pack
enhan's instructions had been sent to him, the
treaty would never have been formed at all.
We see by the English news, that the intelli
gence of the small ski'rtnish near Point Isabel,
produced the ino't tremendous excitement in
Great Britain. There isno doabt but Mexico.
in the beginning of this wa'r, strongly counted
on a rupture between England and the United
States It is also said, that if any other notice
than that of the Senate-the H ouse notice for
instance, had been sent to the B. itish Govern
ment, our contro-ersy would never have been
t djisted withot arms. .
When we carefully look at these facta, orr
very highest ndmiration is excited. at tho wis.
dom and ftresight of our great Senator Mr
Calhonn. IIe now has the credit, both in En
gland and this country, of settling the Oregon
quesion, and lie verily deserves it. A At the
cottanncerient of the present session of Con
gress, wpvkmaouv that an universal gloom hung
over'the adole of this nation-every man
thought thatwar with Great Britain was ityvi
tahile. The ranks of the war party were con
s'iydv swelling, and no one was fund to re
sist their cry. At this critical junnture in our
affairs, Mr. Catlhnn, amrid the fierc,.st d'enin.
ciation, offered a set of resolutionq, and took a
position-, which has finally cleared tip our poli
tical horizon. and saved the state froni a most
btloody anad disastrns war.
