Mexico in the natural course of
events, by a process perfectly
legitimate on its own part, blameless
on ours; and in which all the censures
due to wrong, perfidy and folly, rest on
Mexico alone. And possessed as it
was by a population which was in
truth but a colonial detachment from
our own, and which was still bound by
myriad ties of the very heart-strings to
its old relations, domestic and
political, their
incorporation into the Union was not
only inevitable, but the most natural,
right and proper thing in the world— it
is only astonishing that there should
be any among ourselves to say it nay.

Oregon is a part of the North American continent,
to which, it is confidently affirmed, the title of the
United States is the best now in
existence. For the grounds on which that title
rests I refer you to the correspondence of the late
and present Secretary of State with the
British plenipotentiary during the negotiation. The
British proposition of compromise, which would
make the Columbia the line south of 49°, with a
trifling addition of detached territory to the United
States north of that river, and would leave on the
British side two-thirds of the whole Oregon
Territory, including the free navigation of the
Columbia and all the valuable harbors on the
Pacific, can never for a moment be entertained
by the United States without an abandonment of
their just and dear territorial rights, their own selfrespect, and the national honor.
