I'ACHECO. God and liberty. Aug. 31, 1847. Moit Excellent General Joit Joaquin de Herre.ra, and Srnorri D. Bernardo Couto, General D. Ignatio Mora y Villamil, and D. Miguel Jitriitain. Moit Exckllbnt Sirs The verbal information which you were pleased to give to the supreme government, concerning the conference with the Commissioner nf'fh.l It.l.i I,BO hiun Into . alio the article concerning boundaries, which h? presented to you, ollering, if It ?u not acoepted by Mexico, to consult his government, as he could not. according to his instructions, renounce the territory betwxen the Bravo and Nueces Having anew examined the <iuestion under all the aspects in whioh it should be viewed, it has been resolved in a oounoii of ministers, to say to you, m 1 have the honor to do, that this proposition un der the reoognised right of Mexico to deliberate, should be modified, and that in the pretention* of the United States, and the character of his negotiation*, 1U commissioner leaves no other oboice to Mexico, than the loss of honor: and it is that whioh shut* the door to aM possibility of making peace. To restore this great benefit to the nation, the govern nla, m for m the frontier of Oregon, in the terms which were stated in the instruction*; but not even with the reservation that Congress should approve it, would the government consent to cede more, not even New Mexico, whose inhabitants have manifested their desire to make a part of the Mexican family, with more enthusiasm than in any other part of the Republic. These meritorious Mexioans, abandoned to their fate during some administrations, often without protection even to preserve them from the incursions of the savages, have been the most truly patriotic of Mexioans, because, lorgettlng their domestic complaints, they have remembered nothing but their desire to be ol the Mexican family: and many exposing and eacriQcing themselves to tne vengeance of the Invaders, have rebelled against them; and when their plans were discovered or disconcerted, and their conspiracies frustrated, have again conspired; and would any government sell such Mexicans a* a herd of cattle T Never ! Let the nationality of the rest of the llepabllo perish fbr them I Let us perish together! Nor is this deciding with haughtiness.or with affeoted nobleness, questions of high policy, to which it is said more than calculating colduess should never be applied. The government well knows the vicissitudes of nations, and that there is not at present upon the earth a single one which would return to its original condition, or as its respective history speaks of lt< origin; but even to the eyes of the cabinets of Kurope, pretensions of aggrandizement are unjust, when they wound respectable and resistant nationalities. Our compatriots could well remain In their oountry preserving their nationality and their property, but that which could be said of theut on this acoount could be said of all Mexicans, that they would be strangers in their own country; and if It would be a disgrace to make such a proposition to all the Mexioans, It lsequally so to accept it for a part of them. They might remove to the icrriMjrjr yei remaining 10 ineir country, selling what property they (till possess, having thin Increased by national lands tf it should be desited, and repairing the Iom they might suffer by the change of country and habitation, by the indemnity which the United State* might offer; but the Mexican government Is not that which woald put a price upon the adhesion of a man to the land which gave him birth. These considerations involve the possession of the Rio Urande, lor not only Is tho question of property interested in It, but likewise the nationality of all the rest of tho Kspubllo, for the loss of which ten years would suffice, with the spirit of enterprise and" inundation" of our neighbors, and our present state of infancy. If the commissioner of the United States, by his Instructions, cannot renounce thin pretension, as little can the Mexican government agree to prolong the armistice for forty-live days, that the government at Washington may be consulted. Since an Indemnity may be offered for the territory olalmed. and whether with reason or without, the right of war, let it in this age be worth as much a* it may, can only be applied to Texas, the Mexioan government does I not comprehend that those humiliating sacrifices can be neoessary as a condition of pnaoe, after the many protests which the United States has made that It should be equitable and honorable. If Its right is that of force, aud If It believes that to be sufficient to possess itself of the territory it says It wishes to buy, how can it in good faith, call it equitable and honorable, to occupy territory to whioh it does not pretend, destroying cities and killing our ctttiens, who In nothing have offended it, coming to our oapital by force? Under these circumstances It Is not tor the government te calculate the resources of the nation to continue the war?its duty is to make It with what it possesses. In New Mexioo, and the few league* which Intervene between the right bank of the Nueces and the left bank of the Uravo, lies the iiuestion of peace or war. If the commissioner of the United Slat* leaves to the Mexlean government to choose between this cession and death, in vain his government commands him, he could before have satisfied himself wbat would hav* been the answer. If the United States has made Its choice, and prefer vlolenoe, or our humiliation, they will also do that for ' which they will have to aceount before Ood and tb* 1 world. I give you the command* of hi* Kxcellenoy, the Preslent, offering my distinguished consideration. Ood and liberty. Mexioo, Sept. ft, 1847. J. K PACHECO. Jose Joaquin de H err era D.

Consequently It could not acquire then, except by the right of conquest, or by the title which will reiult from the cession or aala which Mexico might now make. But as we ar? perauaded that the republic of Washington will not only absolutely repel, but will hold in abhorrence tbe drat of theaa titles, and aa. on tba other hand, it w^uld be a new thing and contrary to every Idas of jns tioe to make war upon a people for no other reason than because It refused to rail territory which its neighbor aought to buy, we hope from the justice of tba gevera ment and people of North America that tha ample notifications which we have to propose to tha cessions of territory (exoept that of the State of TexasJ contemplated by the said article 4. will not be a motire to persist ia a war which tba worthy general of the North Amerioaa troops baa justly styled as unnarurai.. In our conferences, we hare informed your exoeUaaoy that Mexloo cannot cede the tract which lies between tbe left bauk of tbe Bravo and the right of the Nueces. The reason entertained fur this ia not alone the full certainty that such territory never belonged to the Htate of Texaa, nor Is It founded upon the great value la the abstract which is placed upon it. It is because that treat, together with the Bravo, forms the natural frontier of .urticu, imiu in a raiuiary una a oominerolM ndh ; tna the frontier ot bo St mi ought to be nought, ud no Stat* pihould consent to abandon It* frontier But, In order to remove all oium of trouble hereafter, the government of Mexico ?Dg?p? 11 not to found new settlement* nor Mtabllili colonies in the spaoe between the two rivers, so that remaining In Its present uninhabited condition, It may serve as an equal security to both repnbllas Pursuant to our Instrnctions, the preservation of tbla territory 1* condition tine fun nan of pence Sentiment* of honor and delicacy (which your excellency's noble character will know how worthily to estimate,) but also a calculation of interests, prevent our government from consenting to the dismembermont of N*w Mexico Upon this point we deem it superfluous to add anything to that whiob we had the honor to explain to yon orally In our conference* The cession of Lower California, which would b? of little advantage to the republic of North America, offer* great embarrassment* to Mexico, considering the portion of that peuinsula opposite our coasts of Donora, from which it is separated by the narrow gulf of CortM. Your excellency has appreciated our remarks on thi* point, and we have been gratified to see that you have yielded to them The preservation of Lower C alifornia would be enough to make It Indispensable to keep a part of Upper California; for. otherwise, that peninsula would ne without any meat 1 < '-i ttm-!-itlon by land with the rest of the rppubii' vtr.uli . .1 yia great embarrassment, especially fur u i"? - Mexico, which 1* not maritime.

In the 8th article of your excellency's draught, the grant of a free passage across the isthmus of Tehuantepec to the Houtn Hea Is sought in favor of the North American cltiasns. We have orally explained to your exoellenoy that some years since the government of the republic granted to a private oontractor a privilege with reference to this object, which was soon transferred, with the authority of the same government, to English subjects, of whose rights Mexico cannot dispose. Therefore your excellency will not wonder that upon this point we do not acoede to the desires of your government. We have entered into this plain statement of the motives which the republic has fur not agreeiug to alienate all the territory asked of it beyond the State of Texas, because we desire that the North American government and people may be persuaded that our partial refusal does not proceed from feelings of aversion created by the anteoedents in this war, or by the suffering which it has Inflicted upon .Mexico, but rests upon considerations dictated by reason and justice, which would operate in all time with reference to the most friendly nation in the midst of the closest relations ef friendship. The other changee (which your excellency will find In our oounter draught) are of minor moment, aa4 we bellaTe that there will be no serious objection to them. The subject contained in (he i'.Hh article has before now burn mentioned la your excellency'* country; we flatter ourselves that the loyalty of your government will not refuse to contract an engagement 10 conformable to bouor and that good harmony in which two neighboring people ought to live. The pence between both countries will be established with greater solidity if a friendly power (Kngland) which ban bo nobly offered its good offices to Mexico and the United States In the present contest, will now offer to grant its guaranty for the faithful fulfulment of the treaty which may be ooncludrd The Mexican government believes that it would be very proper to soliolt thU guaranty Our government directs us to reeommend to your excellency that you will be pleased to communicate your decision upon the counter draught which we have the honor to present to you within throe days. The good and salutary work can, in our opinion, reach a happy end, if each of the contending parties reaolvM to abandon some of its original pretensions. This has always been so; and no nation ever hesitated, at suoh a juncture, to make great sacrifices to extinguish the destructive (lame of war. Mexioo and the I'nlted Mtales have special reasons thus to act.
