House of Representatives.
Washington, June 13, 1846.
Dear Sir.?The President, on last
Wednesday, submitted to the Senate the
proposition of the British Government,
C 1 1 ?L - TVT 1 ?r
iui a uuuuuaiy oil luu i\orin W eSl COQSt.
That proposition is understood to be,
and I think correctly, the 49th parallel
to the Straits of Feuca ; the common
use of the Straits to the Pacific; Vancouver's
Island to the British ; and the
navigation of the Columbia during the
Hudson's Bay Company charter. The
Senate have been assiduously considering
it, and last evening, by a vote of 38
to 12, advised a treaty with these stipulations.
Of course the treaty will be
made, and ratified, immediately. So
far as I have heard, this boundary will
be satisfactory to the people of the United
Your ob't. servant,
Armistead Burt.
To the Editor.
The Webster Investigation.?
We have at last, as we take " our
hasty plate of soup," the reports
ot both committees on the subject
of the investigation into the conduct
of Mr. Webster, and both
agree in substantially acquitting
him of any corruption or impropriety
in the management of the
northeastern boundary question,
which was near creating a serious
difficulty between this country and
England a few years ago.
According to the reports and
the evidence, we lind the surmise,
that we made some time ago, substantiated,
that some of the men
who deceived Tyler, and imposed
on his good nature, have been all
tVirniiorh of tlin kntJnm 1
I.UI vugu ?l tllb UWM,Ullt UI II11S I>upiness,
and we find that it is so.
Mr. Ingersoll has been deceived
by the Tyler men. The funniest
thing revealed, is the fact that the
agent, on whose evidence the
charges against Webster rested,
that the press in Maine was corrupted,
has never paid over the
paltry sums to the editors that
were supposed to have been corrupted.
The whole affair, from
beginning to end, was a paltry
piece of business, and Mr, Webster
comes out of it unscathed.
Let all parties now finish *'their
hast}r plate of soup."
N. Y. Herald.
A writer in the Boston Post
makes the following predictions :
1st. That tho outlines of settlement
of the Oregon question will
be determined upon within six
weeks from that date. (May 25th )
2nd. That the war with Mexico
will be concluded, on terms dictated
by the I'nited {States, within
the same period of time as stated
above. 3rd. That money will ! e
plenty in ninety days, and that the
business of the country, during
the next year, will be very large.
The Ingersoj.l Affair.? ; he
Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore Patriot informs us that
Mi*. Ingersoll has been thrown into
a range, by the testimony given
before the Committee of Investigation,
by Mr. Lewis F. Tasistro,
who Swears that Mr. Ingersoll
urged him to write to Mr. Tjler,
and advise him to come out against
Mr. Webster. Mr. Ingersoll avers
that the witness testifies falsely ;
but Mr. I. has obviously a very
bad memory.
The marriage of the Rev. Dr.
Judson, the venerable missionary
to India, and Miss Emily Chubbuck,
(the charming Fanny Forrester
of the fashionable magazines,)
at Utica, N. Y., on the 2nd
Snst., is announced. *
Character of the Army on the
Rio Grande.?The following is an
fextract from a letter of one of the
volunteers from Baton Rouge,
??iihcii jit/in uauin^ xtiixy <iOiiu(
iand published in the Baton Rouge.
AdVocate t
"I have learned here how we
may love our enemies. At Point
Isabel, the wounded Mexicans
were in the Same hospital with
our soldiers, the same surgeon,
nurse, and all other comforts alike.
Thus we do them good. We are
now encamped within ten feet of
a Mexican fence, which consists
of pole and brush, and though our
men have 'to cross it in search of
wood, not a stick is touched. Does
not this speak much for us as a
christian army V
Mexican Booty.?The American
troops appear to have on their
hands some 500 wounded Mexicans
to take care of. They were
left behind at Matamoros when
Arista retreated. On l> nT r\nr
correspondents thinks that this
leaving their dead to be buried
and their wounded to be succored
by the American army, may be
deemed quite a " Yankee trick'* on
the part of our " magnanimous"
Extensive researches have been
made in and about Matamoros
for concealed arms and ammunition
belonging to the Mexicans,
nor have they been made in vain.
Several pieces of artillery and an
immense quantity of ammunition
have been tound?the latter prin*?
cipally in a cave. Some artillery
has been taken out of the river,
and some out of wells ; some has
been found concealed in the yards
ot the houses oi the priests or in
the houses themselves. Among
these are several mortars. Several
thousand stands of arms, thousands
of bushels ol'corn, and a very
large quantity ol tobacco and
cigars have been recovered. The
whole city of Matamoros was undergoing
a thorouh search.
N. O. Picayune.
Waddy Thompson says that
there are no navigable streams in
Mexico. There is no such thing
as a steamboat running a single
mile in any river in the whole republic,
nor are there 500 miles of
all their rivers which are navigable
for boats of the smallest size.
The expense to this country, in
specie, of the Revolutionary wm?
, . J ? ??
was estimated at about $135,000,000.
The war of 1812, cost this
country between 100 and 150 millions
of dollars. The first year of
the Mexicr-in war will, according
to prrsent calculation, cost from
50 to 100 millions.
Important from Fort Lf.avekworth,?The
steamer Tobacco
Plant arrived at. St Louis on the
7t.h inst. having left Fort Leavenworth
on the 5th inst. She brings
intelligence that Col. Kearney had
despatched two comDanies of dr:?
goons to intercept a party of Mexican
traders, about seventy miles
out, who were 011 their way to
Santa Fe \a ilh a large quantity of
arms and ammunition.
Col. K. had also been informed
that a number of Mexican traders
were on their way to Missouri
from Santa Fe. Gov. Armijo had
placed them under the escort of
two companies of dragoons.
A collision between Col. Kearney's
two advanced companies
and the Mexican escort, it was
thought would be avoided.
Interesting Baptism.?The first
child baptized in the new Trinity
Church, in New York, was baptized
wilh water drawn from the
River Jordan. The rite was performed
on Sunday last, and the
fact being known generally, excited
considerable interest. The
water was brought from the river
in a bottle, in 1830, by Dr, James
E. Decay, who was on board the
corvette United States, carried out
to Constantinople by the late Hen?.r
?i ?u -i '
i j ijuniuiut emu sum mere 10 me
Sultan. Dr. Decay, after the
transfer of the vessel, passed some
months in visiting the more remarkable
places in thpJjlast, and
among other rarities ^which he
collected there, he brought some
of this water, Jbeen preserved
for so mariyjjrears as a curiosity,
by the gentleman to whom
the LJoctor presided it, was finally
used for thisjjkeresting ceremonv
for his ovrfE<*Fiild

The Latj^Tornado.?The Mayorand
Alderman of Grenada, Miss.,
have published an appeal to the
citizens of the State for the relief
of the inhabitants injured by the
late dreadful tornado. It appears
that 112 houses were entirely destroyed?twenty-one
persons killed
and sixty-two wounded.
