In the accord of Messrs. Douglas and Dixon, an undertone of discord may be detected. Mr.Mr. Dixon repudiates the restrictive provision of the Compromise of 1820 as void ab initio, for want of Congress, therefore a blank nullity--that, Mr. Dixon did not assert, nor would any true friend oft Kentuckian's memory insinuate it.

Magoffin, having refused, with insult, to respond to the President's call for Militia to maintain the Union, summoned the Legislature to meet once more, in extra session, assigning, as one reason therefor, the necessity of promptly putting the State in a complete position for defense. His call was issued April 18th; and, on the evening of that day, an immense Union meeting was held at Louisville, whereof James Guthrie, Archibald Dixon, and other conservatives, were the master-spirits. This meeting resolved against Secession, and against any forcible resistance thereto — in favor of arming the State, and against using her arms to put down the rampant treason at that moment ruling in Baltimore as well as in Richmond, and ostentatiously preparing for a speedy rush upon Washington.

We will go down South and show them that though we were born north of Mason and Dixon's line, though we have cold winters, we have warm hearts and red blood in our veins. (Tumultuous cheering.)
