THE BOUNDARY QUESTION, Wo havo now before us the correspon dence between our Government anil Mr Fox, the British Minister, in relation to the late aggressions on the northeastern frontier. It is too voluminous however, for our columns, as it would nearly fill an entire sheet, and on careful examination, we are satisfied that its intrinsic impor tance does not require such an appropria tion.

It seems that the state was under the necessity of raising 8800,000 to meet the interest on their debt. A proposition had been made to tho banks for n loan, which was declined, for the reason that a bill had already passed one branch of tho legislature compelling them to resume specie payments on tho loth of February, or forfeit their charters. I.osuinption was out of tho question, and a forfeiture of charters at the present mo ment idvolved too many serious conse quences to tho community to bo dwelt upon witli composure.

Under these circumstan ces, ho communicated to the legislature the message in question, in which he repu diates the doctrines of locofocoism, and avows his determination to regard the in terests of the sta...

On this resolution there was considera ble debate, by Messrs.
