Jty Having made some changes in our carriers'

residences at the office.
v Agreeably to our promise in yesterday's paper,
we proceed to present a review of the grounds of the
British chums to Oregon, as stated in the debates in
Parliament on the 4th of April last; and we begin by
indicating the source from which the noble
and honorable members of that body have evidently,
id a great measure, derived their information. It is
Is a pamphlet, entitled "the Oregon question, or a
statement of the British claims to the Oregon territory,
in opposition to the pretensions of the government
of the United States of America, by Thomas
Falconer, of Lincoln's Inn." It is a reprint of tire
portion relating to Oregon, of a email work by the
same author on the Texas and Oregon questions,
published in October last, and of a long article in
the Morning Chronicle of January 35th on the subject
of Drake's voyage to the north west of America.
It appears to have had an exteneive circulation
in England, and ia cited as high authority in the
course of the debates, as well aa by all the newspapers
of LondonWith
regard to the 4rm*atu person* of the debate,
Lord Clarendon, from whom proceeded all the historical
light thrown upon the aubject in the House
of Peers, seems to have examined his authorities
very cursorily?not sufficiently, at least, to have obtained
a clear view of any point; for his speech presents
little else than a confused medley of errors, of
which the following sentence will afford a specimen:
"In 1793, the country adjacent to the Columbia
river was taken possession of by Cooke, [meaning
probably Captain James Cook, who was killed
at Owyhee in 1779,] and was explored in 1813 by
the northwestern company, now called the Hudson's
Bay company, [! ] who established themselves
in Port St. George [ ?] under the government
of British laws, continuing to the present day, and
being the first establishment in that country of a
lawful and national character, and recognised aa
such by foreign nations." We believe it will be
unnecessary fUrther to notice the remarks and arguments
of the Earl of Clarendon, to whom the mantle
of old Edward Hyde does not seem to have descended
with his title.
Lord Aberdeen diplomatically confined himself to
generalities; and Mr. Peel did not travel beyond the
limits of the negotiations between the two governments
in which he was concerned. Lord Palmerston,
as usual, loon got upon the Madawaaka, and
there remained until the close of the debate. Lord
John Russell took upon himself the oharge of developing
and defending the British;claims. He is an old
debater, and understands well how to magnify or
(file away feels, until they fit the places for which
they are destined. Hs studied his part on this occasion
well; and though Falconer's pamphlet was
his text-book, he showed that be had looked into
"After "e passing alluaion" to the annexation of
Texas, "for the purpose of showing that the present
conduct of the executive of the United Suites tends
evidently to territorial aggrandisement," (another
strange charge from the masters of the East Indies!)
Lord John Russell proceeds?
"To inquire into the usual modes by which the
right to every territory has been hitherto maintained
and established, ana the manner in which such
questions have been settled. With respect to
uninhabited territories, in ' the first place, there may
be a title by ancient discovery; in the second place,
there maybe a title by treaty or convention; and, in
the third place, there may be a title by discovery,
and an ancient or receut perfection of the title by
settlement and occupation. With regard to those
various modes of establishing a right to a territory,
1 shall now address myself to tne claims of tne
United 8tates to the Oregon territory, so far as I
Sillier them from reports made by committees of
e House of Representatives so long ago as the
years 1835 and 1836, and from all that I have since
seen put forward on the subject In the'first place,
with regard to the claim founded on ancient discovery,
it appears that the United 8 la tea claim all
the rights which may be derived in that way from
the discoveries of the Spaniards. If 1 were to go
into that question, 1 should say at once that a claim
founded on discoveries at the end of the sixteenth
century?that merely visiting a coast, landing for a
few houra at a particular portion of it, and which
title was not in any way perfected by occupation or
settlement for more than two centuries afterwards?
that neither on the part of this country nor the United
States, such a title' oould be maintained to be
effectual. [Hear, bear.] If 1 were of a different
opinion on this subjeot?if I thought otherwise than
I do with respect to such a title?1 would discuss
the question of how far the President of the United
Stales could maintain, auch a title; and I think 1
could ahow, by a tenable argument, that thia country
had e title on the ground of ancient discovery, and
that the discoveries of Sir Francis Drake in 1578,
as compared with the discoveries of Juan de Fuca,
and other Spaniards, in 1593, and the commencement
of the seventeenth century, would establish
that title on the part of England, [hear, hear,
and cheers.] Sir Francis Drake went at that time
as far north as the latitude of 48; and although I am
not, as I before observed, going into the question of
I - - that title. I think 1 could show that we would be
able, without farther evidence, to make a valid claim
I I to a title founded on that claim of ancient discovery.
Now, with regard to the invalidity of claima
?founded on discoveries at the end of the sixteenth
century, merely visiting a coast, landing for a few
houra at a particular portion of it, and not in any
way perfecting the title by occupation or aettlemcni
for more than two centuries afterwards?the remarki
ol Lord John Ruasell oert&inly are unobjectionable,
They apply, howtver, ia no wise, dither to the
claims of Spain or to those of the United States derived
from that power, in the countries west of the
Rocky mountains; although they do apply with
considerable foree to the case of the Falkland islands,

are now held, in virtue of e diecovery supposed, on
very slender grounds, to have been made in 1593,
and of the temporary occupation of a point on one
of the islands between 1768 and 1774. The United
States merely assert that, so far as discovery alone
fives a title to sovereignty, their title obtained from
, , Spam is superior to that of any other power; and
they maintain, moreover, that, on the ground ol
first settlement, their title is good to every part ol
the west coast of America claimed by them. Lord
John Russell cites only the voyage of Fuca, in
1599, on the part of Spain?omitting to notice the
voyages and discoveries of the Spaniards in thai
quarter made before the birth of Drake. We will
take the liberty to supply this omission, and at th?
same time to inquire into the Justice of his opinior
that he could make "a valid claim to a title" to Ore
gon on the discoveries of Drake in 1579.
