dissipate any false impressions that may have
obtained in regard to its most important features.

channel. wli?-re ft has mote than one, to the
point where it strikes the southern boundary of
New Mexico ; thence, weatwardlv, "along the
whole southern boundary of New Mexico
(which runs north of the town called Paso,)
to its western termination ; thence northward
along the western li?e of New Mexico, until it
intersects the first branch of the river Gila; (or
if it should not intersect any branch of that river,
then to the point on the said line nearest to
such branch, and thence in a direct line to the
same:) thence down the middle of the said
branch and of the said river, until it empties into
the Rio Colorado ; thence across the Rio Colorado,
following the division line between Upper
and Lower California, to the Pacifio Ocean.
The southern and western limits of New

edition. Published at New York, in 1847,
by J. Uistumell." Of which map a copy is added
to this treaty, bearing the signatures and
seals of the undersigned plenipotentiaries. And
in order to preclude all difficulty in tracing upon
the ground the limit separating Upper from
Lower Califoraiu, it is agreed that the said
I limit shall consist of a straigntJine, drawn from
the middle of the Rio Gila, wiiere it unites with
the Colorado, to apoint on the coast of the Pacific
Ocean?distant one marine league due south of
of the southernmost point of the port of Sao

each appoint a commissioner end a surveyor,
who, before the expiration of one year from the
date of the exchange of ratification ot this
treaty, shall meet at the port of San Diego, and
proceed to run and mark the said boundary in
its whole course to the mouth of the Rio Bravo
del Norte. They shall keep journals and mak^
out plans of their operations; and the result
agreed upon by them, shall be deemed a part of
this treaty, and shall have the same force as if i'

to these persons, and also us to their respective
escorts, should such be nec'pssarj.

to construct a ro <d, canal or railway,
which should, in whole or in part, run upon the
rtvrr Gila, or upon its ri?ht or its left bank,
within the epace of one marine league from either
margin of the river, the governments of botii
republic* will form an agreement regiirding its
construction, in eru?>r that it may serve equally

All grants of lurid made by the Mexican government,
or by the competent authorities, in
territorieagpreviously appertaining to Mexico,
and remaining for the future within the limits
of the United States, shall be respected as valid,
to the same extent that the same grants would be
valid if the said territories had remained within
the limits of Mexico But the grantees of land
in Texas put in po9ses ion thereof, who by reason
of the circumstances of the country, since
the beginning of the troubles between Texas
and the Mexican governm-nt, may have been
prevented from fulfilling all the conditions of
their gratis, shttll be under the obligation to
fulfil the said conditions within the periods limited
irt the same respectively, such periods to be
now counted from the date of the exchange of
ratifications of th's treaty; in default of which
said grants shall not be obligatory on the State
of Texas, in virtue of the stipulations contained
in this article.
The foregoing stipulation in regard to granfann
lund in Tavqb i j to all nranfuAa
o< lind in the territories aforesaid, elsewhere
than in Texas, put in possession under such
grants ; and in default of the fulfillment of the
conditions of any such grant, within the new
period which; as is above stipulated, begins wiih
the day of the exchange of ratifications of this
treaty, the same shall be null and void.
The Mexican government declares that no
errant whatever of lands in Texas has hern made
since the second day of March, one thousand
eight hundred and thirty-six; nnd that no grant
whatever of lands in any of the territories
aforesaid has been made since the thirteenth day
of May, one thousand eight hundred and fortysix.
Considering that a great part of the territories
I which, by the present trenty, ar* to be comprehended
for the future within the 1 mits of the
United States, is now occupied by savage tribes
who will hereafter be under the control of the
government of the United States, and whone incursions
within the territory oi Mexico would
be prejudicial in the extreme, it is solemnly
agreed that all such incursions shall be forcibly
restrained by the government of the United
States, whensoeverjthis may be n^c-saury ; and
that when they cannot be prevented, they shall
be punished by the said government, and satisfaction
tor the same shall be exacted?ail in the
same way, and wiih equal diligence andeuergv,
as if the sam^ incursions were committed within
its own territory, aguinst its own citizens.
It shall not be lawful, under any pretext whatever,
for any inhabitant of the United States to
purchase or acquire any Mexican, or any foreigner
residing in Mexico, who may have been captured
by Indians inhabiting the territory of either
of the two republics, nor to purchase or acquire
horses, mules, cattle, or property of any kind,
stolen within Mexican territory bv such Indians;
nor to provide such Indians with firearms or ammunition,
by sale or otherwise.
And in the eveot of any person or persons captured
^within Mexican territory by Indian", being
carried into the territory of the United
Stutes, tli? government of the latter engages and
binds itself in the most solemn manner, so soon
as it shall know ot ssch captives being within
its territory, and shall be able so to do, through
the faithful exercise of its uifluencp and power,
to rescue them and return them to their country,
or oeliveT-them to the ssjent or r^pret-.enf itiv oi
the Mexican government. Th*. Mexican nu horities
will, as far as practicable, L'lve to the no-vernmeat
of the United States notise of such
captures; ami itsageut shall pay the expenses incurred
in the maintenance and transmission of
the rescued captives; who, in the meantime,
t-hall be treated with (he utmost hospitality by
the American authorities at the plac* whe^* ihev
miybe. But if the government of the United
States, helore rpcivinir such notice from Mex
ico, should obtnin intelligence, through any
other channel, of the existence of Mexican captives
within its territory, it will proceed forthwith
to effect their release and delivery to the
Mexican agent, as above stipulated.
For th>? purpose of giving to these stipulations
the fullest possible efficacy, thereby affording
the security and redress demanded by their true,
spirit and intent, the government of the United
States will now and hi reifter pass, without unnecessary
delay, und always vigilantly enforce,
such laws as the nature of the subject may require.
And finally, the sacredness of this obligation
shall never be lost pight of by the said
government when providing for the removal of
Indians from nny portion ot s:tid territories, or
lor its bein^ settled by the citizens of United
States; but, on the contrary, ppeniul cire then
shall be taken not to place its Indian occupints
under the necessity of seeking new homes, by
committing those invasions which the Uuited
states nave solemnly obliged memseives 10 rest

the and Kovemments, in the name ol
those nation*, do promise to each oth?-r lliat
they will endeavor, mi the most sincere and rnrue?t
manner, to settle the diffrT*itc<a so ariaintf,
a d to preserve the state of peace and fricndiihip
in which the two countries are now placing
themaelveaj using, for this end, mutual repre
actuations and pacific negotiation*. And if, by
these means, they should not ha enabled to come
to an agreement, a resort ahull not, oh this arcount,
be hrd to reprisals, aggression, or hos|
tility of anv kind, by the one republic against the
other, until the government of that which deem?
itself aggrieved shall have maturely considered,
in the spirit of peace and wood neighborshp,
whether it would not he better that such difference
should be s> ttled by the arbitration of commissioner*
appointed on each side, or by that of
a friendly nation. And should such course be
! proposed by either party, it shall be receded to
by the other, unless deem* d by it altogether incompatible
with the nature of the difference, or
the circumstances of the case
If (which is not to be expected, and which
God lorbid !) war shall unhappily break out between
the two republics, tlvy do now, with n
view to such calamity, solemnly pledge themselves
to each other and to the world, to observe
the following rules, absolutely, where the nature
of the subject permits, and as closely as possible
in all cases whr re such absolute observance
shall be impossible.
1. The merchants of eiiher republic then residing
iu the other shall be allowed to remain
twelve months, (tor those dwelling in the interior,)
and six months (for those dwelling at the
seaporis,) to collect their debts and settle their
affairs; during which periods, they, shall enjoy
the same protection, and be on the same footing,
in all respects, as the citizens or subjects of the
most friendly nations; a"d, at the expiration
thereof, or at any time before^ they shall have
full liberty to depart, carrying off all their effects
without molestation or hindrance; conforming
therein to the same laws which the citizens or
subjects of the most friendly nations are required
to eontotm to. Upon the entrance of the armies
of eiiher nation i uto the territories of the other,
women and children, ecclesiastics, scholars of
every faculty, cultivators of the earth, merchants,
attisans, manufacturers, and fishermen, unarmed
and inhabiting unfortified towns, villages or
places, and in general all persons whose occupa

their respective employments unmolested in their
persons. Nor shall their houses or goods he
burnt or otherwise destroyed, nor their cattle
taken, nor their fields wasted, by the armed

they may hap, en to fall; but if the necessity
arise to take anything from them for the use ol
such armed force, the sani? shall h* paid for at
an equitable prrce. All churches, hospitals,
sehools, colleges, libraries, and oth-r establishments,
for charitable and beneficent purpose*,
shall be respected, and all persons connected
with the same, protected in the discharge of their
duties, and the pursuit of their vocations
2 la order that the fate of prisoners of war
may be alleviated, all such practices as thosa ol

districts, or crowding them into
close and noxious places, shall bn studiously
avoided. Th"V shall not be confined in dun
geons, piison-shn1?, or prisons; nor be put in
iroas, or bound, or oth rwise restrained in the
use of th?ir limbs. The officers shall enioy
liberty on their paroles, within convenient districts,
and have com*oruble quarters; and the
common soldier shall be disposed in cuitonmeuts,
open and extensive enough for air and
exercise, and lodged in barracks as roomy
aud good as are urovid^d by the party in

But if any officer shall break his pirole by leaving

shall forfeit e?. much of the benefit of this
article as provides! or his liberty on parole or in
eantonm-'nt And if an officer so breaking his
parole, or any common soldier so escaping from
the limits assigned him, sh'll afterwards be
f.>und in arms, previously to his being regularly
exchanged, the person so offending shall be
dealt with according to tiie established laws o'
war. Th*' officers shall be daily lurniahed by
the piny in whose power they are, with as many

either in kind or by commutation, to officers oi
equal rank in its own army; and all otheis snail
be daily furnished with such ration as is allowed
to a cotnmo i soldier in its owu service: the value
of all which supplies shall, at the close of
the war, or *t periods to he agreed upon between
I the respective commander*, be paid t>y the other
party, on a mutual adjustment of accounts tor
the aubdiatence of prisoners; and su^h accounts
shall not be mingled with or set otl against any
others, nor the balance due on them be with- 1
held, as a compensation or reprisal for any '
cause whatever, real or pretended. Epch party ,
shall be allowed to keep a commissary of prisoners,
appointed by itaelt, with eveiy cantonment
of prisoners, in possession of the oth<T; which
commissary sha'l s-e the prisoner* as often u*
h? pleases; shall b* allowed to receive, exempt
from all duties or taxes, an I to distribute, wlmtever
comforts may bf sent to them by their
frie: d-<; uud shall be free to transmit his reports
in open letters to the pirtyby whom he is employed.
And it is declared that neither the pretenc
that war dissolves all treaties, nor m-y other
whatever, shall bf considered as annulling or
suspending the solemn covenant contained in
this article. On the contrary, the state of war
is "precisely that for which it is provided; arid
during which, its stipulations are to he as sa,
credly observed as the most acknowledged obligations
under the law of nature or nations.
This treaty shall be ratified by the President of
