Base line of military operations.

The Philadelphia Inquirer says that Capt. Talbot, just from Fort Sumter, has plans nearly perfected for the distribution of fifty thousand volunteers in a bow line from Fort Monroe to Harper's Ferry.

It will be a "base line," sure enough, when it is "perfected." It will be marked all through with the base carcases of the leaders, swung to lines of good Kentucky hemp.
