word to the sorrowful, an encouraging axpressiop to the

and, if you are old, rest assured it wil. scud ypt gently

By the most simple arithmitical sum, look at the resnli.
You send one person-only one-happily thr'i-igh the

this is supposing no relation or friend partake of the feel-

may be of the strongest character. The article in the

No.', it icms to us that the statements of Sir Robert
Ped are L..rnre cut by the facts, that the stipulation of
the Treatv as above recited cannot be distorted into an
aband.nmri t of the right claimed by Lord Aberdeen-
Shile it is entir'ly consistent with the ground taken by
Grcat Bitan, that it is merely carrying out the agree.
me.lt at Ghint, hiat both parties would use their best en.
deavoresto suppress the traffic in slaves. If it was the
understanding and agreement of the contracting parties
in the late Treaty that the right of visitation should be
abandoned, why did they not say so in words that could
not be misunderstood or misconstrued ? Surely it would
have been as easy to have embodied the agreement in an
intelligible form as in the ambiguous terms in which it
is presented.
The President contends, as we understand it, that the
inducement and condition offered to our government to
influence it to keep this force on the African seas, was a
surrender of the right of visitation:, which had always
before been contended for, and for which this was to be
taken as an equivalent; while Great Britain maintains
that it was merely in fulfilment of the article in the
Taeaty of Ghent above recited. But Sir Robert Peel in
his late speech, in denying that the right of visitation
had been surrendered or altered, took occasion to say
that the communication of Lord Aberdeen on this sub
ject to Mr. Everett, the .American Minister, made on
the 20th of December, 1841, had been unacknowledged
and unanswered. Mr. Everett being in the House o
Commons at the time the speech was delivered, took
immediate measures to dispatch to his own government
a statement of the facts in the case; according to which
it appears lihe acknowledged the receipt of the letter o
Aberdeen on the 22d of December, two days after its re
ceipt, with notice that lie would avail himself of an early
opportunity of making some remarks on the very impor
tant topics touched in that letter;" which notice he say
he (ave because he had but recently' -Trivec in the
country, and was soon expecting further instruction
from his government on the subject; but before the arri
val of these instructions, and only seven days after thl
first note of Lord Aberdeen, viz: on the 27th of Decem
ber: lie received from him another communication, whicl
informed him that a special mission hadheen determined
on, and that Lord Ashburton would go to America, witi
full power to settle every point in discussion between
the two nations, and embodying what was called th
right of search, which he considered the most difficult
and expressed an opinion that it would hardly be wort
while for them to continue the correspondence, on mat
ters in dispute between the two countries, pending th
negotiation at Washington, which was reported to ou
government by Mr. Everett in his despatch of Decemi
L ber 31.
Now, what is this claim about which so much excite

politigiani throughout the country, and on account o
which lhjy would forthwith plunge the country into
