The undersigned, Minister Plenipotentiary and Fn »oy Extraordinary ol (he United Slates of America, had he honor to receive from the hand* of his Majesty, the (mg of the Netherlands, on the 10th iust. a document importing lo he an expression ol his opinion on the se reral points submitted (o him as arbiter, relative to cer ain portions of the honndery of the United State*, fn • period of much diQictilty, His Majosty ha* had the (eodnr-ss, for (he purposo of conciliating conflicting laimsand pretensions, to deroto lo the high parties in erested, a time that must have been precious lo him elf and people. It is with extreme regret, therefore, hat llis undersigned, in order to prevent all misconcep tlou, tiul to vWhtt«at« tint right* ‘of hie •overtime nt, feel* himself rompslled to call the attention ot hi* Ex cellency, lit* Haron Verstolk Van Socien, liis Majesty's Minister of Foreign Adairs, again to the subject. But, while, on the oue hand, in adverting to certain views | and con-derations, which seem, in some measure, per | haps, to have escaped observation, the undersigned will death it necessary to do so w ith simplicity and frank j ness; lie could uol, on the other bo wanting in the ex I pressions of a most respectful deference tor his Majes j ty, the arbiter. The language ot the Treaty, w hieh has given rise to the contestation between the United States and Great Britain, is,—“And that all disputes which might arise in future on the subject of the boundaries of the said U. States, may be prevented, it is hereby declared, that the following are and shall be their boundaries, viz: from the north-west angle which is formed by a line drawn due north irotn the source of the St. Croix river to (he ' ighlauds, jilong the said highlands which divide those rivers that empty themselves in‘o the river St. Law fence, trom those which fall into the Atlantic Ocean, to tlie north.westernmost head of Connecticut river, hence down along the middle of that river, to the for ty-tilth degree of north latitude; from thence, by a line due west on said latitude, until it strikes the river Iro quois or Cataraguy *••**. Fast, by a line to be drawn along the middle of the river St. Croix, from its mouth In the Hay of Fundy, to its source; and from its source directly north, to the atoresaid highlands, which divide the rivets that fall into the Atlantic Ocean, from those which fall into the river St. Lawrence.” The manner of carrying this apparently exceedingly de finite and lucid description of boundary into effect, by running the line as described, and marking the same on the surface ol the earth, was the subject, the sole exclusive subject submitted by the Convention ol Sep tember, 1827, in pursuance el the Treaty of Ghent, IS! I, to an arbiter. If, on investigation, that arbiter found the language of the Treaty, in his opinion, in applicable, and wholly inconsistent with the topogra phy of tlie country, so that the Treaty ol 1783, in re gaid to its description of boundary, could not be execu ted according to its own express stipulations, no autho rity whatever was conferred upon him to determine or consider w hat practicable boundary line should, in such case, he substituted and established. Such a question of boundary, as is here supposed, the United Slates of America would, it is believed submit to the definite de cision ol no Sovereign. And in Hie case submilled lo his Majesty the King of the Netherlands, the United States, in lot hearing to delegate any such power, were not influenced by any want of respect for that distin guished monarch, i hey, on the contrary, give him the highest and most signal proofs of their considera tion and confidence. In tlie present case es; ecially, as any revision or substitute ot boundary whatever, h id been steadily in a spirit of ^inalterable determina tion, resisted at Ghent and Washington, they had not anticipated the possibility of there being any occasion for delegating such powers. "Among the questions lo which (he language of the I reaty ol 1783, already quoted, gave rise between tlie high parties interested, is (lie following, viz: where at a point due north from tlie source of the river St. Croix, arc “the highlands which divide tho rivers, that empty themselves into (lie river St. Lawrence, from those that Tall into tho Atlantic Ocean,” at which same point on said highlands was also to be found the north west angle ot the long established, well known, and distinctly defined Bri ish Province of Nova Scotia. 0;» tho southern border ol the riverS.
