Upon this point also I shall have occasion to address to you a separate despatch. I have thus in a brief manner indicated some of the peculiar provisions of this treaty. Many of them are new and important. I ascribe all possible honor to the ability dis- played by Sir Henry Pottinger in China and to the success which attended his negotiations; and I recognize the debt of gratitude which the' United States and all other nations owe to England for what she has accomplished iu China. From all this much benefit has ac- crued to the United States. But in return the treaty of Wang Iliya in the new provisions it makes confers a great benefit on the commerce of the British empire; for the supplementary English treaty stipulates that any new privileges confaded by China to other nations shall be enjoyWTalso by England and there is a similar provision in the treaty of ...

However sufficient such a cause of change may be regarded by many persons we have not the "mortification to believe that there is a press in the country which could be operated upon by motives so un- worthy. We know that public journals do occasionally in order to show their de- votion a misguided one we conceive to .democratic principles avow that they speak only the sentiments of the people and de- mand respect for their expression accord- ingly as the will of the majority.
