Maine will concede her Territory in qxchange for a conventional right to navigate the St. John's River,. to- its mouth, or she might give the Territory of that River, in exchange for the Territory west of it. The timber, concerning which so much noise is made, will be of little use to Maine, without the navigation ofthe St.John's. Our Government has assumed the ground. that it will support the r hts of Maine, as they have decided, by both Houses of Congrees, unless .Maine herself should consent to different terms, or unless a different decision should be made by a new empire,to whom Mr. Vau Buren is willing to submit the case. But, with the assent of Maine, the matter can be settled by neotiation, at Lon dori. Even in the event o disagreement, Frapce would probably offer her mediation, as Englandoffered hers, between ur and France.
