A great effort is making in Congress, to extend our borders across the continent, and establish a settlement, and some kind of government at the mouth of the Oregon River, on the shore of the Pacific Ocean. The measure meets with strong, and we hope it will prove to be successful, opposition. We think our government had better at least for a century to come, confine their jurisdiction, and operation, to the territories on this side the Rocky Mountains. As the policy seems to be to remove the Indians from their settlements, as fast as the whites think proper to encroach upon them, it is no more than equitable, and liberal, to allow them the grounds beyond that formidable barrier, as long as they can find dogs and salmon to live on; otherwise, when they are forced to make the last removal which it would seem our government mean to permit them to make, and which we take it for granted is to be into the ocean, there may be too many of them left for one plunge. We should be sorry, for the credit of the country, that they should be swallowed up at once, like Pharaoh ' his host, in the deep.
