It seems now to bo conct-ficil ilmt negotiations will be reopened, and the bouivJary establishod on ihe 19th parallel. Shouíd ibis be done, it will créate iriuch dissatisfaction in tho Wexl, and will have been hrought aboul by the hesitating and seeniingly timorous action ot the Senate in avowing and maintaining our rigbts."ftTlití Board of Supervisors of Üurrv cotinty stunds, Democratie f, W'hig 5, Liberty, I.
