As may well be supposed, we have watch ed with great interest the reception of our recent articles on the question ot Uregon. In writing those articles, we kept steadily in view the present position of the demo cratic party on the subject. We found that position defined by the 6th of the resolutions .. T" 1.- 1 1 .1. oi me Liammore tonvenuon, aim uy me language in response to it of the President's inaugural address. The Baltimore resolu tion is as follows: Resolved, That our title to the WHOLE of the territory of Oregon is clear and un- qusstionable; that no portion of the rame ought to be ceded to lungland or any other power; and that the rc-occupation of Ore con and the re-annexation of Texas, at the earliest practicable period, are great Amer ican measures which this Convention re commends to the cordial support of the De mocracy of the Umoil. To this, the President replied in his first official communication, "Our right to Ore gon is clear and unquestionable." The sense of these declarations we have expounded and commented upon to the fol lowing efFect: 1st. We have said, that the only issue before the people of the United States, as a question of territorial right, is, tiirj whole of Oregon or xonk. We rightfully own it all, or we do not own any of it. Our title, good or bad, is one title, and lias no lrcak in it at the I9tli parallel. The Baltimore con vention said, we own the whole of Oregon; the President said in reply, "unquestionably we do." And now to these two proposi tions we say, not only are they both true: but further, every ground of title which gives us any of Oregon, gives us, as matter of right, the whole of it. This proposition we maintain after a careful examination of all the published negotiations which have taken place on the subjeat of our northwest territory, collaterally or directly from 17S2 to 1S27 inclusive, the date of tTie last pub lished negotiation on the matter. 2dly. We have maintained, and we still maintain, that the government of the Uni ted States, while repeatedly offering to coin promise its dispute with Great Britain by a division of Oregon along the 49th parallel, has yet, from the first, steadily claimed to be the rightful owner of the whole, "as a gainst Great Britain. - - And further, that since the Florida treaty in 1S19, which gave us the rights of Spain, our government has, upon all occasions claimed to be the rightful owner of the whole of Oregon, as against all nations whatsoever. We now add to this, that on the 21th of May, 1S27, after the rejection by the British Govern ment of the proposed line of compromise along the 49th parallel, the American Min ister at London, under instructions from Mr. Clay then Secretary of State solemnly and in due form declared that the American gov ernment "does not hold itself bound hereaf ter, in consequence of any proposal w hich it has heretofore made, to agree to the line which has been so proposed and rejected, but icill consider itself at liberty to contend for the full extent of the claims of the United States." We have already quoted Air. Clay as saying, in those instructions, under date of June 19, 1826 rXr""Jor is it conceived that Great Bri tain has, or am, make out even a colorable ti tie to any portion of the northwest coast." -QQ And we ask especial attention to all these statements, as fully showing that neither the Baltimore resolution, nor Mr. Polk's in augural, nor our own articles upon the sub ject, took, in relation to our title to Oregon, any ground but the old wett established Amer ican ground upon the. matter. This fact is important in view of the efforts recently made by Mr. Webster, and some other leaders of the Whig party, evidently in pursuance of Britih interests, to cloud and confuse the perceptions of the country as to the true state of the Oregon question. 3dly. With reference to the existing stip ulation for the "joint occupancy" of that country by American citizens and British subjects, w e have said, arid we still say, that the practical . working of that stipulation since 1S18 has been througn the agency ofj the Hudson Bay Company, and the statutes of jurisdiction in relation to it to place the territory under British law; to drive its American inhabitants out of the most prof itable pursuits of the region; to restrict American settlements to the south side of the Columbia river; to dot the northern portion of the country with British forts; to give over to British occupancy most of its commanding sites; to put into the hands of England complete and unchecked control of the Indian tribes, whose fell passion she has, in two wars already, to her everlasting shame, wielded against us without scruple and without mercy, to the most bloody and barbarous issues. And lastly, the eliect ot that joint occupancy has been to give to British policy all that it wants time, name ly, to hedge around its aggressive and base less claim to Oregon with all the immense iorce ana an the imposing iormamies oi lossession. ! Tllfe possession, accruing as.it has accru ed under our solemn protest of our rights, of course does not invalidate our title. But who shall say, that if left . unchecked and unregarded by our legislation, it will not make the assumption and exercise of our ti tle every day more perilolis and difficult. Against the continuance of this state of things as it stands, leaving our citizens in Oregon wholly without the protection of our laws, we have protested, ana we sun protest. We believe that neither the ad ministration nor Congress, nor the country will tolerate, or ought to tolerate, its con tinuance under these ch-cumstances. In view of the ground taken by the Brltimore convention, and by the President in view of what we believe to be the almost univer sal sentiment of the democratic party and of large masses of the whig party in view, above all, of the rights and the duties and the true interests of the United States, we predict (though little given to political pre- diction that before the cominjr session of Congress expires, the democracy of Con gress, and all the considerate patriots of the country, (be they of w hat political party they may,) will be found standing shoulder to shoulder with the administration, to de mand that this joint occupation, saddled as it is with British legislation, shall take a new form, and plant itself upon a new basis, and so work to new results, or else that it shall w holly cease. That all "this may be done that indeed, the whole question may be satisfactorily set tled, without disturbing the peace of the w orld, we trust and believe. But one thing we can say to all our friends of peace in the country that is, as we suppose, to all the country there is one course for our government to pursue, which will effectual ly prevent the peaceful settlement of this ques tion. Let the administration let Congress listen to the responses of the oracle of the East, as lately uttered in Faneuil H011; let the country say, as Mr. Webster says in substance, that we do not much wish or ex pect Oregon to belong to us: that we expect to see, and should be rather glad to see, an independent government grow up there; that we rather suppose it will be a republi can government, and know at least, it will be an Anglo-Saxon government, and so trouble ourselves but little what form of government it shall be; but that at all events, the whole question of title to that soil is, as between us and Great Britain, aquestion to be talked about; and negotiated upon, and hushed up in a compromise, if possible; but, in no event, nor under any circumstances, to be made an issue of peace or war. Let our government take this style on the question, and it will not be settled peaceful ly before doomsday. The true reason, as we firmly believe, why this question is not yet settled as it ourjht to be settled, is, that Great Britain has neve yet seen, in any previous negoti ntion, any sufficient inducement, in the pub lic feeling and legislative action upon the subject here, in the United States, to lead her to settle it. We find the proof of this in the w hole history of the negotiation. In ISIS we of fered, and England rejected, a compromise on the 49th parallel. Why should she not reject it then? What was the consequence of a rejection? Why, a joint occupation no more a joint occupation, to turn which to the best possible account, she knew she had the machinery of the Hudson Bay Com pany already made, by which laws might be extended to her people, whilst our citi zens were left unprotected. And so events have but too well proved. In 1S24 we offered the same comprom ise again. Again she rejected it. Why should she not? The machinery of her company and her legislation was working beautifully; through it, the jurisdiction of the courts ot Canada covered every rod of Uregon. V hat was the consequence to her, if she did reject the compromise? Why just this that Mr. Rush, after having ex hausted all the resources of the highest di plomatic ability, in a most luminous and powerful statement of his case, broke off that negotiation as impracticable and hope less, put the Oregon papers in his pocket, and turned to another larger bundle about the West India trade. And meantime, it was as before in Oregon "joint occupa tion." In 1S27 again ice would compromise. England would not. Why not? , Because the alternative was in no wau serious. In strict accordance with all the known facts of the case, one can fancy the British states men then saying, "Why should we accept this proposed compromise? Te be sure, we have no title to Oregon: we have admitted that we have none, In the official state merit made on the part of the British gov ernment; and alllxed to the protocol of the sixth conference held on the 16th day of December, 16:6; we the British plenipoten tiaries, have said in terms, Great Britain claims, no exclusive sovereignty over any por tion of that territory. But what of that? Let us hold on. The Americans show no great sensibility on the subject. Our joint occupation is working admirably for us. The income of our Bay Company last year was very near a million Their stock is now 140 per cent above par. Doubtless we can get a renewed lease of joint occupa tion possibly with leave to terminate it by one year's notice, ais soon as we are ready for other measures." And so they did hold on, and got at that time jnst what they wanted. What has since taken place in the way of negotiation w hat has taken place under the present administration, we shall probably learn in the course of a few weeTs. When that curtain is drawn up, we shall : see whether Great Britain: has manifested a stronger disposition to listen to our demands, and to participate with us in any fair division of the territory to which we have a clear and unquestionable title. It seems to us, that this view of our past unsuccessful efforts at compromise is full of instruction for the future. It we wisli to settle the Oregon question peaceably, let us settle it seasonably; arid, to that end; let us show that we are in earnest about it, and united upon it. Protocols alone, though they should cover ream upon ream of pa per, will not do this. We must do by law for our citizens in Oregon, at least as much as Great Britain has done for her subjects there. We must, as we have said before, "recognise them, protect them, establisji communication with them; and extend to them a participation of our own rRn he publican government." We must organ ize a government over the American citi zens west ot the Rocky Mountains, and thus protect them, and thus bind them to us. in addition to inis, u is me aicxaie alikoof a wise and of a peaceful spirit, to ive to emigration to Oregon proper en couragement. An Indian agency there a mail communication a line of block houses protecting and securing the Oregon route additional dragoons, if necessary, to protect them from the Indians; all these measures, and other measures of protection, such as these, are indispensable, and should not be longer delayed. They have been delayed too long already. In one word, our diplomacy has already demonstrated that we are the rightful owners of that soil. Our legislation should now show that it be lieves w hat our diplomacy has nil along as serted and proved. Let our legislation do this, in moderation, at once and firmly, and Oregon is ours. That, is, indeed, a strange political phe nomenon, that the party claiming no title has, under a stipulation of joint occupancy, privileges which the party fully entitled may not exercise. If the mutuality of the stipulation be of that left-handed sort which cives to the un entitled claimant every, right; and to the true owner none then the sooner that stip ulation is torn up and scattered to the winds, the better the better for the honor, and the better for all the interests of the country; The right to govern and protect its citizens on its own soil, is the last right which an independent nation should relin quish or compromise, or permit to be one jot impaired We have thus stated our views of the Oregon question, and of the policy growing out of it. In some quarters they hav e been misrepresented. That is of no consequence. We expected it. But the democratic party and the democratic press have understood us; and we now leave the question to the constituted authorities of the country, to manage it according to the lights which will soon be officially exhibited to Congress, and according to their best wisdom and highest patriotism. Honor to General Jackson. On the 11th instant Mr. Anderson offered the following resolutions to the House, pre faced with an appropriate preamble: Resolved, by the General Assembly cf the State of Tennessee, That a monument com memorative of the most illustrious achieve ments of Gen. Andrew Jackson should be erected at the expense of the State, and that the same should be located at or near Memphis on the bank of the Mississippi river. Resolved, That a marble statue of An drew Jackson should be executed by a dis tinguished Artist at the expense of the State and be placed in the Capitol whenever that building is finished or prepared for its receptiori. These were laid on the table "in conse quence," says the Union, "of some differ ence of opinion as to the best mode of rais ing the means for the erection of the pro posed monument. No opposition was man ifested, and we presume never will be man ifested, to the proposition." In reference to this matter, a late Ortho politan remarks as follows! Mr. Anderson's resolution to erect a monument at Memphis and a statue in the Capitol, to commemorate the public servi ces of General Jackson, proposes loo much to be accomplished in the present condition of the finances of the State, and, therefore, if adopted, will be as a dead letter. One, however, may be erected; we mean a stat ue to be placed in the State Capitol, and to this, we suppose, no citizen of the State would object. This is rather too much upon the chilly order to reflect the sentiments of the peo ple of Tennessee. So far from objecting, we feel assured they would hail an appro priation of the public fund to this purpose, with the liveliest emotions of pleasure. II the "present condition of the finances of the State" will not allow her to construct a monument at Memphis, a3 well as a statue at Nashville, at least let the legislature put the ball in rri6ti6ri let it recommend the measure, appropriate" something no matter how inconsiderable in amount and leave the rest to individual subscriptions. It only wants starting in, a proper manner, to in sure its speedy consumation. Donor to Gen. Carroll On the 12th, "Mr Guildr savs the Or- thopolitan, "offered a preamble setting forth .i ii- .i-t i'T."' ur:ii:.. the deep sense of the General Assembly for the loss sustained by his country in hi death, and tendering to his widow and chil dren thecondolence of the General Assem bly in their bereavement; and as a tribute of fespect for hi memory, they resolved to' wear mourning for the space of thirty days. The rule was suspended, the resolution ad opted, and the House adjourned." Alctn phis Appeal' DCJThe following letter, which we find in the St. Louis Revellie, was no doubt wiit- tenijy Mr. Fielp, who was in attendance at the late Memphis Convention. The Convention Calhoun, Things in General Memphis, Sunday Morning, lCth Nov.,43. Dear Rev elli e. Th e great day I will not say is passed, oril is still present with a ten fold interest in the minds of all; and for a long, long time it will be equally so in the minas oi me counxry ai large, l lie union of the South with the West; the contract which must henceforth command from all, respectful attention to its provisions," has been signed, and JohnC. Calhoun is 'inscrib. ed in letters of gold ujon the record. The presence of this distinguished man, at the late Convention, and the hearty ad option, by him, of the great sentiment which called it together has added force even where power seemed all commanding, and the possibility of his being borne by the present impetus into the next Presidency, has occurred to the minds ot very many. The great principle, that the Mississippi (and tributaries,) is essentially an Inland Sea, and within the provisions of the Con stitution, as far as improvement goes, a fact which would seem to be self-demonstrative, has been so unequivocally and handsomely avowed bv Calhoun, that the Convention have regarded him with no small degree of enthusiasm, and the feeling will, be general through the West. Calhoun's centradic- tions, real and apparent, will be very apt to be forgotten, or at least lorgiven in the clear understanding of the great text which he has now so plainly given out. His recommendation, also with regard to the reduction of duty on R. R. iron, in the present awakening with regard to rail roads, will; doubtless, be received with favor by the people, for the demand for that article must and w ill exceed the possibility of home supply. Although Mr. Calhoun can go home with the conviction, that he has just done enough', no political mark has been set up, while the admirable discretion of the rrentleman has, in effect, fairlv hit one. Last evening, C. C. Clay presiding in the convention, Mr. Calhoun was visited, at the "Gayoso House," by the ladies of Memphis the satisfaction was mutual, doubtless. Talking of the fair, puts me in mind of "fairsfW visited one of these eccentricities here, the other evening, and though it may sound ungallantly, I must say, that the queerness of the thing struck me with great er force than ever before. The more than familiarity of the buyers was fully equalled hy the abandon of the sellers. I do not say that it went further than the full enjoyment of the usual position in which they found themselves, but the effect was unfeminine and unpleasant tnose pretty iace3 never looked less pretty. One young lady added to the demand for letters at the "post office, by finding an unusual necessity for combing out her hair- she had a very fine "head" of it, certainly! . : The growth of this "city of ' Memphis" has been astonishing: w ithin three or four years it has assumed the proportions and the bustle of a city, positively. It will have the most magnificient landing in the west, and the line of stores fronting it is, now ex actly one mile. Its hotels are large, and must be comfortable w hen not crowded to excess, while streets are extending in every direction. Its shipments t f cotton, for the present season, have amounted to over ne liundred and fifty thousand bales; and the location of the Naval Depot will add to its wealth and consequence. Population at present, I am told, is some eight thousand. Although, a3 Dr, Overton, of Nashville, says "there never was such an illustrious time, and never shall be." . The gathering of intellectual heads, in convention, would have been treat to Dr. Buchanan, while the exchange of courtesies and union of in terests among all rendered the occasion pe culiar as agreeable.'

German Pon i.ation or Cincinnati.-- A German paper in Cincinnati states that then are between 4,560 and 5,000 German vo ters in that city. If this estimate is correc t, says the Gazette, it would make that part of our population amount to from 30 to 35, 000,eual to the whole extent of the city ten years ago.

She was in stantly committed for six months. The Tariff. The following from the New York Sun conveys a most accurate idea of the tariff "Tariff is a word derived from Tnrifa, a wicked little town just within the straits of Gibraltar,whoe inhabitants in former times lived upon the industry of others, by com pelling passers by to pay them an impost on their goods. The government found this tax on merchants so profitable, that it mo nopolised it, and made it universal under the name of tariff or royal percentage," The New York correspondent of the Na tional Intelligencer says: I learn that a life of General Scott is now in a state of preparation by Edward D. Mansfield, esq. of Cincinnati." This, I pre sume, may bo considered as an indication by his friends that thev intend to present him. at a proper time, as a candidate lor tne Presidency. Oregon.
