ON DITS. ON OREGON AFFAIRS.
We extract the following statements
from the Washington correspondence of
Baltimore and -Philadelphia Journals.-
What credit they are entitled to beyond
that imparted to thenv by the character of
the papers in which they appear, we can
not say, but presume they were not made
without some authority :
. Correspondence of the Philadelphia Chronicle.
Washington, December 13.
With this object peace in view, ne
gotiations on the Oregon question has
been terminated at Washington, in order
that all further disccussion may be trans
ferred to London, where Mr. McLane and
Lord Aberdeen may. speak face to face,
and agree upon some honorable compro
misc. By the steamer which sailed pre
vious to the, President's Message, ample
instructions were sent to Mr. McLane on
the subject, in which the most friendly
sentiments are expressed towards the
British Government, and an anxious desire,
manifested for peace.
Correspondence of, the Baltimore San.

Mr. Par itoTT. late special agent of the
United States in Mexico. left this city ten

There. is no doubt as to the tenor of h'lA
proposition. A liberal sum is proposed
to be'onered to Mexico as an equivalent
for a new bbundftry which will embrace

AVe have placed before our readers ru
mors frcftn diflerent sou rcs. which seem
to leave little doubt that one of principle
objects of the mission of Mr. Slidell to
Mexico was to prosecute a'negotiat ion for
the annexation of another foreign territo
ry to the. United States. The New York
Morning News' of Tuesday supplies
some particulars of the proposed negotia
tion, which, considering the relation . of
that paper to hr. Admist ration, nr suppos
ed to be of some nut bent icily. . W there
fore place them before our readers as
follows, italicising what appear to us to
be the material points:
California,4-U seems in be under
stood that Mr. Slidell. otir new Minister
to Mexico, is fully authorized to arrange
our boundary with that Republic upon
the most liberal footing. His pavers. in
this respect are believed ;to be so extensive
that under them he may negotiate ft trans
fer to the U. States of the tighfof Mexicalo
Upper California. This would probably
be effected by making our line follow the
course of the Rio Grande del NOrte from
the.Gulf of Mexico until it reaches their
thirty-second degree, of north latitude,
and then run westward on that parallel
to the Pacific ocean." - Ofcourse such a
result will not be brought about without a
handsome compensation to Mexico for her
relinquishment ot territory. . Uur claim
against her for indemnification to our cit
izens is now very large; and no way is to
likely as this to secure its full and imme
diate satisfaction, lndeedso. farras the
consideration which we niay give her is
balanced by this accotinU it ' may be said
t o a mou tit to not hi ng ; for, i f wef gi ve
Mexico the. fullest credit for good will in
the premises, her distracted and impover
ished condition warrants but a slight hope
that she will verv speedily pay us in mb
