ANDREW G. CURTIN.
Watutses, An armed rebellion exists in a
portion of the States of this Union, threaten
ing the destruction of the National Cavern
ment, periling public and private property,
endangering the peace and security of this
Commonwealth, and inviting systematic piracy
upon our commerce:
And whereas, Adequate provision does not
exist by law to enable the Executive to make
the military power of the State as available and
efficient as it should be for the common defence
of the State and the General Government:
And whereas, An occasion so extraordinary
requires a prompt exercise of the Legislative
power of the State; therefore
I, ANDREW G. CURTIN, Governor of the COM..
monwealth of Pennsylvania, by virtue of the
poWers vested in me by the Constitution, do
hereby convene the General Assembly of this
CoMmonwealth, and require the members of
the Senate and House of Representatives to
meet in their respective Houses, in the Capitol
at Harrisburg, on TUESDAY, THE THIRTI
ETH DAY OF APRIL, A. D. one thousand eight
hundred and sixty-one, at twelve o'clock noon
of that day, then and there to take into con
sideration and adopt such measures in the pre
mises as the exigency may seem to them in
their wisdom to demand.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my
hand and caused the Great Seal of the Com
monwealth to be affixed at Harrisburg, this
twentieth day of April, in the year of our Lord
one thousand eight hundred and sixty-one, and
of the Independence of the United States the
eighty-sixth. By the Governor.
Secretary of the Commonwealth.
Mason and Dixon's Line.
-From an article of considerable length, and
of much interest, in Fernon's Railroad Register,
we make some extracts. The article seta out
to show that Mason and Dixon's Line is not
the boundary between free and slaire territory
in the United States, and never was ; but dis
closes an old fact with a new face, in its asser
tion_that mason and Dixon's Line commences
- at 88° 27/ north latitude, about fifteen miles
south of the month of Delaware bay, on the
ocean shore, at the intersection of the present
dividing line between Delaware and Maryland;
and is the present dividing line between Delaware
and Maryland, as well as between Maryland and
Pennsylvania! Delaware is a slave State, and
the whole of Delaware is north of Mason and
From these fasts it is manifest that Mason
and Dixon's Line is not a sectional line, divi
ding the South • from the North by separating
the slave States from the free States, all popu
lar assertion to the contrary notwithstanding;
for in truth, and in fact, Delaware, which is a
slave State, and which, in all sectional divi
sions of the Union, is classed with the South
ern States, is wholly north of Mason and Dixon's
Line; which, as already stated, begins on the
Atlantic Ocean. at 38° 27' north latitude, and
not, as is erroneously supposed and promul
gated, on the dividing boundary between the
States of Pennsylvania and Maryland, the lati
tude of which latter line is 39° 43/. Hence
Baltimore, Washington, Alexandria and Mount
Vernon are all north of Mason and Dixon's Line
at its starting point on the ocean, south of Cape
Ilenlopen, and south of Indian river.
Washington and Future Operations.
The feeling uppermost in every mind during
the past few days has been that of painful ap
prehension for the safety of the National Cap
ital, and the obstruction of the ordinary rail
road and telegraphic means of communication
intensified this feeling. In the absence of
certain intelligence, it was feared that sufficient
forces. might have been concentrated in the
neighborhood of Washington, by Virginia and
Maryland, to make a successful assault before
Northern troops could arrive in adequate num
bers to secure the safety of the Capital. But
thie apprehension has in a great measure abated
since the safe arrival of reinforcements. It is
now believed that Washington is secure against
any force that Virginia or Maryland can march
against it. In fact we never had any certain
information of the mustering of an army in
Virginia largnenough to threaten the Capital.
The only body of troops actually seen was that
which marched upon Harper's Ferry, and were
frustrated in -their design of capturing the
armory by the decisive measures of the officer
in command. Bat the exposed situation of
Washington. the murderous assaults ma d e upon
the Massachusetts- and Pennsylvania regiments
while attempting to pass through Baltimore to
its defence, and the secrecy of Virginia in
passing the ordinance of secession, taken in
connection with the futile march upon Harper's
Ferry, were all indicative of a dash at 7iVaik
ington, and caused the deepest anxiety for its
As soon as an adequate force is assembled at
Washington to Mitre its safety, and the ave
nues of communication with the North are
opened and guarded, the first hurry of the
campaign will be over, and troops be forwarded
with more order and regularity. 'Within the
next month Washington will witness One of the
finest armies ever assembled upon the face of
the earth; composed of men who knew the value
of a good government, and are determined to
maintain it against. those who are seeking to
substitute anarchy for law.
When the army is assembled at Washington,
it will need considerable discipline to render it
efficient. Our people have so long been ac
customed to peace that the art of war has
fallen into disuse and decay ; but we are natu
rally a military people, having a great aptitude
for receiving inatruction, and one month hence
the raw voluiLers of to-day, who never before
engaged in etildiering, even ais a holidy aniuse
ment, willhodle their muskets with the..pie
cision, and step with the firm and accurate
tread of regular soldiers.
There is good reason for the belief that after
the _army_ assembles at Washington, and the
secessionists abandon the idea of taking it,
the Federal Government will stand strictly on
the defensive until after the assembling of ton
gress, when the whole question of how to main
tain our Nationality and put down rebellion
will be committed to the representatives of the
people. With Washington . secure; with all
the Southern ports strictly blockaded; with
the people of the loyal States a unit in Support
of the Government and the flag of the Union,
what is to become of the Southern Confederacy
How is Jeff. Davis to obtain money and provi
sions for the support of his Government and
his army, when all communication from the
outer world and from the Northern States is
effectually cut off ? A. few months of vigorous
isolation would make the people of the South
count the cost of rebellion, and perhaps induce
them to revolutionize the revolution.

SALT AND OIL WELLS OF CAMBRIA AND
CLEARFIELD CO UNTIES.
The interior of Pennsylvania is teeming with
undeveloped mines of wealth, which, when fully
brought into active operation, will be capable of
sustaining and actively employing a population ten
times greater than the present. The want of capi
tal among the practical part of the people has
greatly retarded her progress. It must be the•cap
hal of our cities which will be employed to bring
forth the hidden. treasures that are yet destined to
make and keep Pennsylvania the first State of the
Union, both in point of wealth and population. A
large portion of our State remains unsettled, but
the rapid manner in which our pine forests are die
appearing, leaving land half cleared, has caused
agriculturists to tarn their attention to the bills
and rollinglands west of the Allegheny mountains,
in this State, where health and a ready market is
insured, rather than risk their lives among the fever
and ague prairies of the West.
I can instance Johnstown, in Cambria county,
which, under the magical influence of Phliadelphia
capital, has grown from a mountain hamlet to a
small city of ten thousand inhabitants, or to Scran
ton, in the East, which stands a monument of New
The production and manufacture of salt is one
of the industrial interests of Pennsylvania of
early origin. Salt was at an early day manufac
tured on the Conemaugh and Kishkiminetas. The
salt wells on the Conemaugh at one time, many
years since, partially became exhausted or failed
in their usual strength, and they were abandoned,
as the difficulties of transportation and the failure
of the strength of the water prevented the business
from being a profitable one. After the completion
of the Pennsylvania railroad, these wells were re
opened, and the water it was found had regained
its former strength and further difficulty was obvi
ated by sinking the wells to a greater depth, and
now many thousand barrels of salt are annually
sent to Pittsburg from these establishments, to be
distributed throughout the West.
In many places in the Moshannon Valley natu
ral salt licks are found, to which deer resort in the
spring and early part of summer. These are sure
indications of .the presence of salt water, and by
sinking to a proper depth salt water will be found.
The company now sinking a well at Philipsburg,
in this valley, will surely find salt water, if they
do not find oil, which is the main object in sinking
the well, at which the machinery is now actively
at work, and with the abundance of fuel in the im
mediate neighborhood, will undoubtedly make it a
Sixteen miles north of the town of Altoona, at
the confluence of the Beaver Dam and Eastern
branches of the Clearfield creek, an ancient and
natural silt lick existed, where deer and elk ori
ginally frequented for the purpose of licking the
saline particles that oozed out of the ground. This
gave rise to the belief that salt water could be ob
tained by boring a well, and caused, some twenty
years since, the organisation of the Elk Lick salt
company, who employed Mr. S. G. Wilson, an' in
telligent mechanic of much skill, to bore a well in
search of salt water, and who, after digging twenty
three feet, struck the solid rock, where he first
commenced boring, which was a slow and labored
process, as he had not the modern apparatus with
steam power to hasten his work. No auger is
used, as some may suppose, but an iron chisel ,
which, by constant raising and dropping by means
of a rope attached to the chisel, by little and little
wears away the rock; some days two feet, but not
nnfrequently, when a hard substance is struck, as
iron ore, not over one inch.
In the rear of the well is a bold projecting ridge
of land, which till recently was covered with white
pine timber, comprising part of the extensive Phil
ipsburg estate, which contains large workable veins
of bituminous coal, which, for want of faci'ities to
carry ti) market, are not worked at present, but
which, at some fature day, will be carried to an
Eastern market, by a branch railroad freak the
town of Altoona, which will add no little to the
importance of that thriving - and business-like
From Mr. Wilson's notes, which I was kindly
permitted to examine, I was authorized to make
such extracts as I thought proper, and I am in
debted to them for the description of the different
stratas passed through. For the first eighteen feet
the soil consisted of common earth, and then five
feet of quick-sand and fresh water; next seven
feet of black slate rock, followed by six inches of
bituminous coal. At the depth of thirty-two feet
six inches, a vein of fire brick rock was struck,
which was thirteen feet in thickness, and appeared
at the lower part of the vein to be mixed with iron
ore. The next, five feet of black slate mixed with
coal followed by one foot of white flint rock; then
two feet six inches of black slate, when a vein of
cannel coal was struck, which is believed to he of
a superior quality. This was at a depth of fifty
three feet. Next eight inches of slate, which sep
arated the cannel coal - vein from a vein of bitumi
nous coal four feet four inches in thickness. Then
fourteen feet of common freestone, and two. feet
mixed with slate and coal. Then a vein, sixty feet
in thickness, or p orce l a i n c l ay of a very superior
quality, which had a greasy feel, as though mixed
with oil. Its appear ance resembled white lead
ground in oil. This vein, it is believed, will at no
distant day be worked and used in the manufacture
of the finest porcelain ware. The next one hundred
and thirty-five feet was through common free stone
changing in color from brOWO to hie* and mixed
. with quart'. Again the auger passed through a
vein of five feet : of porcelain clay. The balance
Was through a eolid.vein4 hard freestone, a por
tion of which was mixed with a yellow metal,
which Mr. Wilson believes to be copper. Unfortu
nately the only specimen saved was lost. It may
have been iron pyrites, or it may have been gold
—probably too abundant for the latter. At the
depth of five hundred and forty-eight feet salt water
was struck, but so mixed with a dark fluid that it
was deems to be useless. This dark fluid is be
lieved toe oil, which Mr. Wilson now believes
would; be a paying oil well. , -
As 80011 Wilson completes the oil well
which be is now sinking at Philispsburg, he in
tends 0-opening his well at Elk Lick, for the pur
pose of testing the value of the contents, whether
mineral or liquid ; and as he spent so many hours
at his toilsome work, it is hoped he may now be
abundantly rewarded. Moans:Nam.
Philipsburg, Penn., April 18,1861.
AN EGYPTIAN FESPIVAL.—A correspondent
of an English paper describes a brilliant festi
val which was given in Alexandria, Egypt, in
March, to welcome the Viceroy Said Pasha on
his return from Medina. The writer says :
"The grand square, on each side of which
are ranges of beautiful houses, presented a
charming appearance. A kiosk, which in de
sign and decorations resembled the palaces we
read of in fairy tales, was erected in the centre
for the reception of the distinguished pilgrim.
The square, which is at least five hundred yards
in length, is planted on each side with double
rows of trees. These were decorated with fes
toons of evergreens and flowers, and splendidly
lighted up with innumerable colored paper
lamps, and other lamps were tastefully dis
posed among the branches, representing differ
ent kinds of fruit. The houses, for the most.
part, were illuminated from the ground to the
*rraces. The two fountains were surrounded
by open woodwork, gaily dressed with palm
branches, flowers and artificial fruit, the whole
being lighted up with large Oriental chande
liers and small colored lamps. There were
four fine triumphal arches in the square, and
other arches in different parts of the town.—
Flags were flying from many of the fiat terra
eee, which were also made available for the
display of all kinds of fireworks. There were
some very good transparencies with mottoes in
different languages, and pokraits of the Vice
roy and of his little son, Toussan Pasha. On
the balcony of the French consulate appeared
the initials 'S. P., N. 111, E.,. S. P.' (Said
Pasha, Napoleon 111, Eugenie, Said Pasha.)—
The wits of the town interpreted this inscrip
tion as follows: 4 Senza potente Napoleone ILL
Egitto aarebbe perso,' (without the powerful
Napoleon 111 Egypt would be lost.) A certain
gentlemen whose premises were not very splen
didly illuminated had put up the letters 'S. P.,'
(Said Pasha ;) he was complimented on his
sincerity in publicly making known that he had
spent only 6d. for his part of the rejoicings.
"A European baud was in attendance, and
played several Arabic tunes, at which the na
tives grinned in ecstaoies delight, for they
have a very poor opinion of the fantastical
compositions of Italian masters, who, they say,
jumble notes together in such a manner that
it is almost impossible to play them, and when
played it is quite impossible to comprehend
them. On the Pasha's apPearance there was
a terrible rush to get a sight of his jovial coun
tenance ; but, although there were neither
police nor guards' present, the immense con
course of people, composed of persons from
nearly all quer: ers of the globe, conducted them
selves much more orderly than could have been
expected from such an assemblage. His High
ness, accompanied by a few of his officers, en
tered the kiosk, where he was received by those
European gentlemen who are in the habit of
favoring him with their company—oftener,
perhaps, than he desires it.
'‘ On the second evening of the illuminations
(they were kept up for three evenings,) an in
cident occurred which reminds one of the ad
ventures of the renowned Haroutt el Rasohid,
in the Arabian Nights' Entertainments.—
The Pasba was going through the Arab quar
ters with some of his officers. One of the
streets was in almost total darkness, the only
light being that which pioceeded from five
lamps placed over the doorway of a very hum
ble dwelling. The Viceroy stopped, and or
dered the owner of the house to be brought
before him. It was a poor Arab woman. The
Pasha asked her what she was and how she
gained her livelihood. 'lam a poor lone
widow, your highness,' she replied, ' I have
nothing to depend upon but what I gain by
selling a few dried beans.' ' And how much do
you gain every day ?' Some days twenty
pumas, some days thirty, but seldom more than
a piastre " And how did you manage to get
up this illumination ?' asked the Pasha, smi
ling. • Why, your highness,' answered the
woman, ' seeing that all the people were pre
paring for the fantasia (fete,) I thought it my
duty also to do what I could.' ' When did your
husband die ?' demanded•the Pasha. He was
killed in the Crimea,' she answered, 'while
fighting for our glorious Sultan.' The Viceroy
was much touched at the simplicity of the poor
woman, and on the following day he sent her
five purses' for Each of the.lamps displayed.
A 'purse' is equal to £5."
THE FLORIDA 'FORTS-THEIR FORMIDABLE
CHARACTER.—The New York Times is now pay
ing a little attention to the Government forts .
down South. 'lt thus speaks of two of those,
toward which all eyes are at, present anxiously
Santa Rosa Island, where Fort Pickens
stands,, is less than half a mile in width, taper
ing down gradually, as we advance eastwardly
from the fort up the harbor, to a width of only
about 300 yards, which it attains at a point
about two miler from the site of the Fort. On
both sides of the Island—that is, both on the
sea side and the harbor side—vessels may ap
proach very close to the shore drawing from
three to four fathoms water, so that the whole
breadth of the Island may be swept, not only
by the guns of the Fort, but also by those of
the fLet, thus rendering it impracticable for
an enemy, without great exposure and the cer
tainty of heavy loss, to undertake to occupy
the Island and keep open his communications,
in face of a power holding the Fort and at the
same time having. command of the sea. But,
on the other hand, the Wand may be safely,
promptly and very advantageously occupied
by any yeinlorceMalt which the Government
may choose to land there, for the purpose of
establishing batteries to respond to and divide
the fire of the besiegers.
There are other local facts which will have
material weight in deciding this immediate and
apparently approaching contest. It so happens
that iu arranging the plan of. Fort Pickens, and
the sites of Font; Aleßae and Barrancas, with
a view to sweep the channel, these two forte,
now held by the insurgents, are respectively
opposite tile curtains of Fort Pickens—each
presenting a salient angle, or weak point, to
the direct fire of the face, or saong front, of
that fort. These forts, therefore, it is reason
able to conclude, must soon be overpowered
and silenced by Fort Pickens. This conc!u
sion applies peculiarly to Fort Mcßae ; the
work nearest the sea, and which, besides being
very inter or to Fort Pickens in all the essen
tials of strength, will receive its fire at disad
vantage, and be exposed, at the same time, to
the guns of any man of war which may be de
tailed to co-operate in the defence of that for
