ahip answers as frankly, " that the military
preparations of England, while
they do not look directly to a probable
rupture with the United States upon the
Oregon question, are regarded as being
useful in the event of such a contingency,"
&c. In the mean time, on the
other side of the water, Mr. Pakenham j
proposes that the resnective shares of
the two nations in the* Oregon territory
be determined by reference to some Sovereign
or State agreed upon by both
parties. His proposal, however, is rejected,
and that in language which the
New York Courier & Enquirer justly
stigmatises as offensive. Mr. Buchanan
writes:?" The President declines the
offer of arbitration. Mr. Pakenharn had
assumed that the title of England was
valid to at least a portion of the disputed
territory, whereas the President had assumed
the the title of the United States
to be clear and unquestionable to the
whole of Oregon. This was a sufficient

In a second letter, Mr. Pakenham
? proposes, " to submit the title itself to arbitration,
and if a friendly sovereign or
State is objectionable to the United
States, then to a mixed commission of
eminent jurists, civilians, &c. If the title
of neither party should prove clear
and satisfactory, then the arbitration
may divide the territory."
To this Mr. Buchanan answers, that
he has no faith in arbitration. His answer
is dated February the 4th. On the

Congress. This, with the comments of

Gen. Mejia is now at Matamoros. As
soon as he was informed of the arrival
of the detachment from your army, under
Capt. Hardee and Lieut. Hamilton
?th^^e opposite Brazos Santiago, via
Isla^^P'adra, the other by the old Matamoros
road, near San Colorado?he
mustered every soldier here, and crossed
the Rio Grande in person, under the
impression that he should meet the advance
of your army. He marched as
far- as the Colorado Creek, with the utmost
nossible desnatr.h. nnd disrnv#?rpH
that both these detachments had returned
to the camp of Corpus Christi.
His anger at this unexpected " no find
you there" knew no bounds?as he had
boasted upon his departure from Matamoros,
of the laurels he and his troops
would win before their return to their
old quarters. His excellency was,
however, compelled to put back without
a single trophy to grace his unwelcome
AIL the forces, late under the command
of Gen. Arista, at Montery, and
now under the orders of Gen. La Vega,
about 1800 strong, have arrived at Matamoros,
and it is said will march forthwith
for the Salt Lakes and the Sal Colorado,
to arrest the March of Gen. Taylor
upon the Rio Grande. Gen. Canales,
of Comargo, with his regiment, nearly
1000 strong, has received orders to form>
the advance of our forces, to watch the
movements of your army, and is now occupying
a position in a direct line between
Comargo and Corpus Christi,
about 22 leagues from the former place,
at the northwestern extremity of the
great salt lake. Gen. Ampudia?the
gentleman who boiled Sentmaaat's head

3500 men, mostly cavalry. We know

troops, at the head of the Salt Lakes, 69

Gen. Mejia, on Sal Colorado, where
the old Matamoros road crosses that
river, about 60 or 70 miles from Mata

Gen. Garcia, at Point Isabel, with
280 men, mostly infantry and artillery.
Gen. Savereigo, vvilh some two hundred
men, is upon *he Colorado, between
Gen. Mejia and the lower ford, which
is from 10 to 15 miles from the Gulf.
