We give bolow the comments of Mr.
Webster upon this provision:
"It would appear that by a strict and rigid
construction of this article, finding vessels
of the United States are precluded from en
tering into bays and harbors of the British
Provinces, except for the purpose of shelter,
repairing damages, and obtaining wood and
water. A bay as is usually understood is an
arm or recess of the sea entering from tho
ocean between capes and headlands, and
the term is applied equally to small or large
tracts of water thus situated. It is common
to speak of Hudson Bay or the Boy of Biscay,
although they ore very large tracts of water.
Tho British authorities insint that England
has a right to draw a line from headland to
headland, and to capture all American fish
ermen who may follow their pursuits inside
of that line.
It was undoubtedly an oversight in the
Convention of 1H 18, to make so large a enn-

construction of this article of the Con-, The Great Convention at Niaoara.
, , ... a. , ,! From information which we have received
The opinion delivered by these olhe.ers of Ljthinaday or two.we believe that there wHI
tho crown was, that by the terms of the Con- bo a tiullttml fokptn from Massachusetts
volition American citizens were excluded j tl, tl0 , elhnrint, of t0 W,ig dans at
from any right oi ishmg within three miles, Vintfaraot, the 20th. We heard ol gentlemen

point of land next thu sea, of the coast, or of
tho entrance of buys or inlets of tho coi.st,
and consequently no right exists on tho part
of American citizens to enter the bay of No
va Hcotia, there to take M, although ('ihIi
ing, being within the hay, may ho at a great
er distance than three miles from the shore
of tho buy, us we uro oftliu opinion that
the term headland is used in the tmty to
express the part of the lund we have before
mentioned, Includiiig the interior nf the bays
and the indents of tho coust.
The vessels of war mentioned in the above
circular despatch are expected to bo upon
tho coast of British North America during
tho present month, (Jn Iv) when, we doubt
not, seizures will begin to be made of Amer
ican (inning vessels, which In tint niitiunn
pursue their business intents on thu coast,
from which it is contended they ant excluded
by the Convention of 1818.
It is this construction of the intent and
meaning o!' liio Convention of 1818 for which
the colonies havo contended since 18 tl, and
which they have desired should be enforc
ed. This the English government has now, it
would appear, consented to do, and the im
mediate effect will he the loss of thu valua
ble fall fishing to American fisheries, a com
plete interruption of the extensive business
of New Knglanil, attended by conntnnt col
lisions of tho most unpleiiHiint and exciting
cliarncter.which may unit in the destruction of
human lilu,ln the involvement ol the govern
ment in a question of a very surious nature,
threatening the pence of the two countries.
Not agreeing that the construction thus
put upon the treaty is conformuhle to tho in
tention of the contracting parties, this infor
mation is however made public, to the end
that those concorned in Uie Amerii-nn (inher
ios rimy perceive how the cast) at present

invited to thu banquet, and was assigned n j
toast tn which ho was expected to nuiko a
reply, wnen lit turn came, ho rose and
avowed himself a Whig, remarked that of
course ho could not be expected to make a
locofoco speech and then he proceeded
with an eloquent out ami out whig hurrangue,
during which ho lushed locofoco men and
principles right and left without murcy. For
a while the unterrifled wure taken aback;
but in tho end they so admired thu audacity
of tho gallant Tennesseean, that they not
only listened to mm, nut applauded lum
with real Tammany Hall enthusiasm. We'
may, we think, with perfect aafety , aver tlinl
such a thing as a Whig, and a Southern
Whig at that, making a speech In Tammany

To the casual observer these "first-rate

stor organ of the English moneyed aristocra
cy, and the less pretending Leader, may not
nnnrurof much account; but when consid

by Kossuth, and his arrogant attempt at
dragooning the German papulation into vot

with that part of the Deniocratio platform
which endorses intervention, may wellshuke

reckless of consequences, as to employ such
