Predicted Roj aotion of 'the Clarendon

The convention now concluded be- pt

is not, of course, binding on either
n ttion. It must, of course, be ratifl- d
ed by her Majesty, under the advice y
of the Minister by whom it was con- st
oluded, but no similar obugation rests a
upon the Senate of the Uuited States, p
vhose consent is required by the eon
stitution to give effoot to any treaty t
entered into by the executive govern- b
ment. And such is the hostility of s
the Senatorial majority to the present
l're.idcnt and to Mr. taverdy John- tl
un th.it it is quite conceivable that b
the c:ivonentinn m ay, on purely party
ground:, and without the least refer- n
ei:ce to its merits, be rejected by that e
body. In such an event the negotia
tion must of course be reopened by It
G; iniral t tant. Ic is, however, hard- t
ly impossible that in any case a treaty a
m ore favorably to America should be iu
extorted frorr any 3itish admtinistra- o
tion ; .nd as the probable effect of a r,
further postponement of the settle
nient would be to render the Ameri- ti
cu people weary of the matter, and 11
to give time for the republicans, as- b
-itured of a four years' tenure of
Spowei, to become cooler, more rca- t
sonable, more disposed to prefer the k
real interests of the country and the
cre.lit of the government to the ten- n
porary popularity won by claptrap c

would be likely to conclude; namely,
that having been substantially framed h
and negotiated by the conservatives, 11
and actually signed and sealed by the h
liberals, it, is safe from more party n
cavil and criticism. On the other n
hand, it is sure to be unpopular in n
America as the work of President
Johntson ; while an exactly similar p
treaty, negotiated under the auspices Si
of his sucessor, would have the bene- n
fit both of the party spirit of the re- b
publicans and of the personal popu- i
ltrity of General Grant. In any
case, the present convention may be t
confidently regarded as enibodying the r
terms on which the questions so long d
debated between America and Eng
land must. finally be settle4 Its con- t
