That this bargain tins been In-contempla

and this suspicion is in the minds of many
verritied by the article of last evening.
If it is true, as intimated in the Union that
unless Ave sacrifice the tariff we shall have
to fight for Oregon, if England thus threat
ens us, it is palpable that she purposes to
pursue the same course towards us in re
lation to our tariff, that she did towards
the Chinese as to opium they refused to
receive the dru'g.and she.llogged them in
to acquiesence. The Union intimates
that Great Britain -may pursue towards
us the same course if we refuse to receive
her manufactures, and that the Oregon
question is to be the pretence. This I do
not believe, but regard it, on the part of

DEBATE IN THE SENATE.
The Oregon Debate advances in the
Senate with a calm and measured pace ;
it is also conducted, latterly at least, in a
temper, and with an evident study and
an attention on the part of the listening
members, worthy of a high deliberative
body and of the deep importance, of the
matter under discussion. But vvhat is of
more interest than all this to the country,
is the commendable spirit which has, for
some days, marked the debate. Leading
Democratic members, especially ihe three
last who have spoken, have, by the tenor
of their own speeches, rebuked the in
temperate tone of some who preceded
them, and have avowed themelves the
antagonists of "the whole or nothing"
doctrine, the friends of amicable negotia
tion, of fair compromise, and of honorable
peace. May such sentiments continue to
characterize lhedehate, and finally lead
to the happy adjustment which these gen
tlemen so independently espouse! Vr.
