SFIHIT CI THE MOEJflHG PRESS The Union defends the Administration against the censured of the Intelligencer on account of its summary manures to put a stop to British recruiting in the United States for the Crimea. The Intelligencer preesnta its readers with a history of " Mason and Dixon's Line/' now ?o ofton referred to ii connection with current politics. It is the original boundary between the oolonle^ of Maryland and Pennsylvania, first traced in 1761 and 1762. In 1663 they bar gained with Chas Mason and Jeremiah Dixon, "two mathematicians or surveyors'' to come ont from Ecgland and retrace the line. They lam . ed in Philadelphia in November of that year, and at occe entered on the work. Their line did but vary an inch from the one previously rue. **Ihe line* whose history has thus been given were directed to b3 marked in a partic ular manner, both by the agreements of the parties and the decree of Lord Hardwieko; and the scrveyors accordingly planted, at the end of every fifth mile, a stone graven with the arms of the Penns on one side and of tho Baltimore family on tbo other, marking the in* termediate niileo with smaller stones having a P on one fide an an M on the othor. Tbo stones with the arms were all sent from Eng land. 'ihis was done on the parallel ot lati tude as far as sideling Iiill; but here ail wheel transportation ceasing in 1765, the further maikingoi the line was the vista of etghl yard* wtde. with piles of stones on the cree-s of all the moun ain ranges, built some eight feei high, as the tumtait of the Alleghany, be yond w?>ch the line was marked by posts, around which stones and earth were thrown the better to preserve them A Tbily Wo*DKnrrL Uabdew.?The value of a point in writing, and cf the relative po sition of wcrds in a sentence, was never bet ter illustrated than in the following ssntencr^ extracted not Iwtg -ince from the lnttlh gtticer. as follows 41 Fifty strawberries were picked latt week frem a g arden in Pound Brook which filled a quart measure " This is the firs: time we ever heard of a gar den that only filled a quart measure.

A No t'>5 You have said that the latitude ard longitude of Cape liatteras were erroneous in tfce chart3. How did you ascertain it ? A. By having attempted, in 1S28, to mako a union of the northern and southern maps, which join at that place Q. 76 What is the object of the second base lino? A. The verification cf the whole work, which is i* the *ystem of such works. Q 77. If the objwt be to verify the survey, and suppose it doe3 not agree, what is the con sequence ? A. Xhat the error, if any, is to fce investi gated Q. 78. It ij stated in one of your reports that the f urvey ex'eods over 11,000 rquare miles; is that mapped ? A. Yes to be sure.

Cannot the surveys of the bays ani rivers t e postponed without injury to the gen eral wurU, till tuo purvey of the coast proper is completed'' ^ A. It is impossible, because no accuracy could be got fo.- the coast. 44 ProferSvr B , we bear, is obtaining charts? the results of the labors of his many aifiist an's ard subordinates?much faster than tbey can be pu'rdi&Led, owing to the scarcity of suitable engravers in the United States." Q 105. How miny engravers do you em ploy. A. Two ; 1 would havo more if I had the money. Q 10b Cannot American engravers put on copper all map engravings whieh can be puf. on paper.

A Great Ado About Nothing.?The readers of the may re?t assured that there is a great deal of humlu<rgery in tfce story of tfce New Y'ork paperc, saying that there has been almost a diCculty between Louis Napoleon's Minister cf Foreign AlTairs and Mr. John Y. M*?in, cur Minister at the French Court, upon he alleged determination of France not to re spect the rights of ships of noutral Powers in tbe Baltio, according to the declarations at d stipulations laid down in the ord9rs in council in this connection, promulged as the declared policy cf France some months ago. In these orders Fiance came very near to the doctrine on this subjoct so long urged by this Govern ment as tho only proper reading of the law of nations upon the tubjeot suited to our ad vanced ago. We feel satisfied that op to this hour not a w^rd or a lice has been received by tbe Government fcero from which the im presaion tfcat France is disputed to fly from her pledge m~y be fairly drawn. The fcieign ui:uist<rs in this city all dis crefit tbe s'ory, and they never iall to be wei' informed in eueh matters.

Our Prophecy Coming True.?Our talented, courteous, entertaining and knowing neigh bor, already finds itself in hot \tater on ac eount of its offer to surrender the interest of the South in Kansas, under the flimsy pretext that the grapes aro sour, any how. The Rich mond Post, the Virginia central Know No thing organ, very broadly intimates that its party m the South are not willing to be sold with their eyes open, to Wilson, Colby, Hale, Colfax A Co., for the favor of the Northern Knew Nothing members of the House, for the organ, who, to a man, are opposed to the le galisation of slavery in Kansas. The Pott 1 takes the view of the present position cf our gentle neighbor on the K?nsa? question, takon by the Star immediately after that in genuous, enthusiastc and entertaining sheet ! turned a short corner to keep the party at the i South 11 National;" or, in other words, in line with the Northern wing of the organisation, 1 which has with unprecedented unanimity re pudiated and apat upon the platform, wherein i that ventured to squint favorably towards the dea that Kansas should be admitted into the ! Union with a slave-holding Constitution, if applying under one, and that it is neither wine, prudent nor patriotic to labor to ] ablish the Missouri restriction with reference ] 0 Kansas and Nebraska. We presume that ' t>y this time the " Association,'1 who hope to [ slutch the printing of tho next House by 1 sending, in the name of the South, to the * wishes of Wilson, Colby, Hale, Colfax A Co., W:th referenoe to Kansas, have had their eyes i >pened to the fact that the Southern Know No- < hings intend the so desi- 1 rable prise, tfuy shall not bo sold, body and ! ueeches, to that end. i Appointed ?Robe't T.

Our I itutions ?A friend, who wa< in \ Baltimore on Wednesday night last, described j in oocurrenoe at Barnum's which giet so far < :owards illustrating the true character of our ? institutions that we cannot help repeating it , here. It will be recollected that the Presi- ? lent left this oity on that afternoon with his 1 wife, who is an invalid, for Cape May. Rest- \ ing in Baltimore that night, and having ar- < rived there without previous announcement, ] nid unattended, he was seen around the hotel, 1 inducting himself in all respects as quietly - find unobtrusively as though he were some ' v eitern merch&lt, just arrived per railroad, j Dur friend, who had fallen into xcversdtion 1 Kith a traveling foreign gontleman, recently . arrived id the United States, incidentally took j o:casion to point oct the unassuming fellow* < traveler, who was asking at the office for z j iheet of writing paper, as the President of tie 1 ailed States. The foreigner stared and . turned pale with astonishment, and alter oon- 1 t*mplating the President so engaged, and quietly tai?n? turn to be attended to, I iinong half a dosen guC.'* Of the Loupo who were standing near him?exclaimed: "Mice j Jot! mine Got!

' Tho Platform.?Really the Know Nothings . tre astonishing platform builders They nade one in National Counoil in Philadelphia recently, a pig or puppy platform, whereon it a-as arranged that those standing might turn charming faoes either to the North or South 'The party" in the two sections seem, however, agree only to repudiate it. In Georgia they ] lave just erected a second one, based wholly >n hostility to the north; while in the ocuncil in Massachusetts they made a third Know Nothing platform based wholly on the aboli* Hon views of Senator Wilson; or, in other words, on hostility to the South. A pretty 'National party," truly! A pretty party, ( this, to harmonise the conflicting views of 1 the two seotiona of the Union on the alavery |uestion?thus turning in, as they are doing in all directions, to obtain power merely by pan. dcring to loeal predjudices and interests The imposture of its nationality 13 already exposed 1 through its own aots. i The Insane Asylum.?Dr. Bohrer was to day elected President of the Board of Mana gers of this institution, and a committee (of Managers) was appointed to draw up by laws for its government. Slightly in Error?Our talented, amiable, and ingenious neighbor is flrmly of opinion | that in the reeeut elections in New Orleans j aad Norfolk, Know Nothinglsm was not the > real issue, though in both cities its formally nominated candidates were in the fleld. It i turns out, however, that Mr. Elgee, the anti Know Nothing oandidate so triumph***!? oboson in New Orleans, is an Irishman, w-rfle Mr. Woodii, the nawly elected antl Know Nothing Mayor of Vorfbik, Is a member (4 ?
