Captain Gray,-of Boston, in the j-ear 1792, in the ship G-olunjbia, entered for the first time the great river o f Oregon, which he named after hiS sliip —to(3 Columbia—and to this day it hears that and iiK) other name. This is of-'?ome mofnent, as there is a law of nations which reads thus “The nation which discovers tend uitcrSs the mouth of a river, by implication discovert the whole country watered by it.”, In virtue of this discovery, the Columbia valley belongs to the LhiileJ Statfs as against England. As if to, the Lewis Iri'buliaries. pcrfi-et our title, it is not denied and Clark and Wallmctte rivers, wl.iehspnaJ thro'.igh all plored by A me,ricans ’ by th JrtYei th a t th e ; its X gon, w{ by the expedition s tnt Ojut he American'Congress at the suggestiffn bf under Caplains Lewis and Clajrk.j— a n iin u l e n ts .s a n d a which give the high se' (in 1813} ■t discovered and ■ north afe -the r a considcra- J. ceded to the United States and also all lur rights, title and occuparit of the coast, even as far 55lh paralKl.

The only circumstance calculated to weaken the perfectness of tlie United States’ title, is the well known Nootka Sound Contest (in 1789) which tcHninated in a convention be landtnd Spain, in the year 1791), st years hufore our puEeliasc from Spain, which conditions oajr title is undoubtedly c!ov<rcd. The terms of thali convention havc^ been ^ h e :e of infinite dispute. After an cxamii af tlie terms df the treaty—the debates between E rg . tw e iity id w ith eource oi njuimc mspuic. After an examina­ tion of tire terms df the treaty—the debates in the English Parliament when the laid be fere that body—the contemporaneous ac­ tion in relation to the surre nder of tlje English Inglis btfl-re that in r e la tio n to th e surre n u e r or ip e Jblnglish possessions on Nootka Sound, which had been seized by Spain—which surruioer, by the way, an English historian, Btlsham, insists was nev­ er made—the whole convention seems to be re­ solved into a joint occupancy on the part of Eng­ lishmen and Spaniards for commercial purposes. Such a one now exists and has e.\istcd for iwen- rs between. Great Britain and the elation to the very same terri ;n year States in relation to the very same ten lory. Yet we doubt whether any American considers that vve yielded in t h e ^ s t our ultir mate title to the Oregon, ‘oy tliat occupanl cy.
