EOWDYISM IN BALTIMORE The terrorism maintained by the organized rowdies of Baltimore, has given no enviable reputation to the Monumental City. The state of things there existing is disgraceful to the city, and a stigma upon our popular institutions. Baltimore has enjoyed for many years a bad eminence in lawlessness, and there the occasional alarming scenes in other cities have their frequent counterparts.

The Superintendent of the Canadian Telegraph Company's lines telegraphs as follows in relation to the effect of the Aurora Borealis last night:—' *I never, in an experience of fifteen years in working telegraph lines, witnessed anything like the extraordinary effect of the Aurora Borealis between Quebec and Farther Point last night. The line was in most perfect order and well skilled operators worked incessantly from eight o'clock last evening till one o'clock this morning to get over in an intelligible form about four hundred words of the report per steamer Indian, for the Associated Press, and at the latter hour so completely were the wires under the influence of the Aurora Borealis, that it was found utterly impossible to communicate between the telegraph stations, and the line had to be closed. The same difficulty prevailed as far South as Washington."

Senator Douglas has written an article in Harper's Monthly on " The Dividing Line between Federal and Local Authority—Popular Sovereignty in the Territories." It is an elaborate defence of his ideas upon the question of slavery in the Territories. He contends, as he has always done, that Congress has no authority over the subjeot, but that it belongs exclusively to the people of the Territories; and, as he has always done, he carefully avoids stating who are the people , and by what means their respective rights are to be determined.

Rope-Walking, like whooping cough, is catching. Two boys at Rookport, New York, have learned to do it over the canal at that place, and propose now to walk over Black river, at Watertown, Jefferson county, New York, where it runs through a frightful chasm.
