Secession at the North.

The New York Herald says that the Legislature of Louisiana, in the resolution which has been introduced in that body inviting the Southern portions of Indiana and Illinois, which gave heavy majorities against Lincoln, to enter the Southern Confederacy, has opened the door for non-slaveholding States. But the line, it thinks, might be extended further, and include parts of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The Herald says:

‘ "A part of New York and Pennsylvania, and the whole of New Jersey, which it would not be worth while to dissect, might very probably like to join the Southern Confederacy, too. This is a proper subject for the Southern Congress at Montgomery to take up. They have already opened the question by their resolution admitting other States not yet included in the ‘"Confederate States of America"’ to come in if they are willing to subscribe to the Constitution."
