jffi" Aones or Sorrento!s the title
of tho New ltomanco which Mrs Harriet
Bccohcr Stowe has just written for tho
Atlantic JilonMy.- Tho first pages are
given in tho May number of that work,
and the manner in which tho story opens
assures us that its publication will add to
the already brilliant reputation of this
most popular of American authors.
Tho story is one of love and duty, of joy
and trial. Its hcroino is a young girl,
born in a Catholic country and educated
under the influence of Catholic institutions
and in the development of the plot the au-
thor nas sought to Ulustrato tho influences
of that creed upon the lives and characters
of its votaries,
From the intense interest in this subject
whioh has been manifested by the people
of tho United States within the past few
yoars, and the fact that it has entered so
largely into tho discussion of the political
as well as religious questions of tho timc,it
cannot be. doubted that Mrs. Stowe's elu
cidation of it, through the medium of fic
titious narrative, will causo it to be as
widely sought for and as eagerly perused
as her' prcvicus brilliant contributions to
American literature have been.

It was our opinion, when tho Legisla

would have been better if they had remain

thus saved tho expense of recalling the

to consent to tho recall of the Legislature,

close, leaving tho provisions of tho act of
17U5 in force. It will be observed that
the Prcsidont has in hi3 proclamation
quoted the exact text oftho statue, the sec
tion referred to being as follows :
"See. 2. Aud bo it further enacted,
'I hat whenever the laws of tho United
States shall bo opposed or the execution
thereof obstructed in any Stato by combi
nations too powerful to bo surprcssed by
tho ordinary course of judicial proceedings
or uy tne powers vested in marshals by
this act, it shall bo lawful for ihe President
oftho United States to call forth tho mil
ita of such State, or of any other State or
States, as may be necessary to suppress
such combinations, and to cause tho laws
to bo duly executed, and tho use of milita
to bo called forth may be continued, if neo-
cssary, until tho expiration of thirty days
after tho commencement of the next session
The power of the President to determine
the existence of the fuct3 which establish
the necessity of calling upon the milita has
been settled by judicial determination. In
the case of Martin, vs. Mott reported in tho
twelfth of Vbeaton,p. 10, tho Court say:
"Thu authority te decide whether the
exigencies contemplate in tho constitution
of the United States and hhe act of Con
gress of 1705, chap. 101. in which the
President has authority to call forth th
milita to oxecutts tbo laws oftho Union,
suppress insurrections, and repel invasions,
havo arisen, is exclusively invested in tho
President, and his decision is conclusive
on all other persons."
The clause which limits tho term or
service of troops called out under this act
is found in the fourth section, and it is
as follows :
"And no officer, noD enmmissioned offi
cer or private shall bo compelled to servo
moro than thrco months after his arrival
at ihc placo of rendezvous in any ono year.
It will be observod that th concluding
clause of the section quoted above makes
the term of service also expiro thirty days
after the assembling of Congress. It is
noticeable that it was in tho power of the
President, by declining an extra session of
Congress, to havo provided a longer period
of hostilities, inasmuch as the troops or
dered into tho field upon tho first requisi
tion could, at the expiration of their term
of service, have been replaced by a new
levy, and thus a sufficient army have been
kept under arms till tho first of January
next. It is not doubted that tho spirit of
tho States furnishing tha troops woul d
have promptly advanced tho money neces
sary to maintain tueir sovcral quotas in
active preparations, relying on the genor

From an article of considerable length,
and of much inteiest, in Fcrnon's Rail
road Register, wo mako mo extracts.
The aiticlo sets out to show that Mason (
and Dixon's I iuc is not the boundary bo
tween free and slave territury in the Uni
ted states, and never was ; but discloses
an old fact with a new face, in its asser
tion that Mason and Dixon's Line com
mences at 33 dcg. 'JT north latitudc,about
fifteen miles south of the mouth of Dela
ware bay, on the ocean shore, at the in
tersection of the present dividing lino be
tween Dolawaro and Maryland ; and is the
present dividing line between Dclatcaie
and Maryland, as well as between Mary,
laid and l'cnnsy'vania .' Dolawaro is a
slave State, and tho whole of Delaware is
norlli of Mason and Dixon's Lino.
From tho facts it is manifest that Ma
son and Dixon's Line is not a sectional
lino, dividing tho South from the North
by separating tho slave States from the
free States, all popular assertion to tho
contrary uotwith.tiui'.inj ; for in truth,
