II is only a few weeks since the public
learned, with general satisfaction, that a mem
ber of the New Jersey Legislature had been
ent to ths Stato Prison for bribery. Ho was
kuta small rascal, to be sure; Btill, it was a
good thing to have any rascal In office pun
Inked, were it only to discourage the others.
Jli brother lawgivers, however, were not dis
posed to leave him to his well-deserved fate;
and when petitions for pardon failed, they
tronpht in a bill which, under the disguise of
an at for the punishment of bribery, would
fcavethe effect, if passed, not only to set the
convicted criminal at liberty, but to proclaim a
reneral amnesty lor all pnst offences of a simi
lar nature 1 We doubt II legislative lmpudenco
f ver went further than hK Whether timorous
consciences hud any inllucnce in deciding the
Tote, our readers must, of course, judge for
themselves. The bill passed both houMM, and
n the 30fh of January was very properly vetoed
toy Uovernor Ward.
The first, second, and third sections of the bill
jS'ibgtantlally re-enaeted the old bribery law, for
whiell they were ottered a9 a substitute, with
the Important exception that they left un
touched a mode of bribery which the Governor
justly characterises as "more insidious and dan
gerous lhan the direct otlering and acceptance
of a gilt" namely, the olienae of giving or with
holdine a vote upon one legislative measure in
consideration of a vote to be given or withheld
upon another. The present law makes this a
misdemeanor, punishable by imprisonment or
fine; the proposed one makes it no offense at all.
The fourth section of the vetoed bill allows a
iovernor or member of the Senate or Assembly
indicted for bribery the privilege of testifying In
his own behalf as it men who would perjure
themselves once by taking bribes would hesi
tate to periure themselves airaiu in order to
avoid punishment. The fifth section repeals the
fcribery law now in force, and with it "all and
every provision of the statute or common law
within the purview of" the said enactment.
This is not only seiting up a bar to all prose
cutions for past otlicial corruption, but is a
sweeping abrogation, as Governor Ward says,
of all adjudications heretofore made by our
Courts, and included in the terms 'common
law,' by which bribery as a crime has been
expounded or denned.'' This atrocious bill
threatens to become a law. having been passed
over the Governor's veto bv a vote of 12 to 9, in
. the New Jersey Senate. Under its provisions,
should it pass both Houses (and this, we are
Rlad to say, is still doubtful), a legislator who
had taken a bribe last week or last year cannot
he punished, because a statute which he had
violated will have been repealed. The honor
able gentleman who is now pajiug the penalty
ef his itching palm in jail might be brought out
on habeas corpus and released, because all the
iirovittions of the statute of common law touch
ing his case would have been set aside. The
pffrontery which enabled anybody to offer such
a bill or to vote for it is amazing.
The Impeachment Scheme The Consti
tution and Madison' Opinion.
Ag w haVe maintained from the beginning,
the susp'- 'ion of the President from office is an
essential feature of the project of impeachment.
The men most active in that project avow with
out hesitation that, unless the President can
thus he suspended, his impeachment and trial
ere of no importance. What they want is to get
him out of office, not to punish him for crime.
Wendell Phillips stated the other day in Boston
that the President must be Impeached not be
cause they desired to punish him, but because
they "wanted his place." General Butler has
eaid in substance the same thing; and as we
lave already shown, the leading actors of the
impeachment scheme in Congress seek the same
ends and are prompted by the same motives. -The
whole impeachment scheme is simply a
political movement nothing more and nothing
Jess. It is weed, not in the interest of justice
or of the national safety, but in the interest of
a political faction, and for the purpose of clear
ing the way for the accomplishment of certain
political objects. The President is an "obstacle"
jn the way of favorite modes of reconstruction.
While he is in office the Southern States cannot
lie reduced to territories, nor treated simply as
conquered provinces nor can the Supreme
Court be swept away or made subservient to the
will of a shifting political majority. A two
thirds vote cannot be relied on for the accom
plishment of these ends even in the present or
the next Coneress. For these reasons, the Pre
sident must be impeached and suspended. The
"obstacle" must be "removed." And unless
suspension can take place at ouce, without wait
ing for trial and conviction, the impeachment
will be useless.
Hut the language of the Constitution seems
very explicit on this point. It declares that
officers impeached shall be removed from office
"on trial and conviction," both being clearly
required as necessary to removal.' The political
advocates of impeachment insist, however, that
though he may not be removed until the trial
results in conviction, he may be suspended
while the trial is going on, and that this will
answer all their purposes. Precedents have
been quoted from Enelish history to sustain this
position, and General Butler, in his Brooklyn
speech, urged that if this had been the intent of
the Constitution, in clear obedience to English
precedents, that document would have contained
an explicit provision to that effect. But what is
most confidently relied on to support this
theory, U a declaration said to have been made
by Madison, in the Virginia State Convention,
Iield to consider the question of ratifying the
Federal Constitution. The pardontnz power,
vested in the President, beius under discussion,
Colonel Mason spoke in opposition to it and was
answered by Madison, who, after urging that it
could not be vested elsewhere without encoun
tering still greater objections, is reported to
"There is one security in tliiscase to which
gentlemen may not have adverted; if tlie
President be connected, In any suspicious man
ner, with any person, and there be grounds to
Lelieve be will shelter film, the llouwo of llepre
wentatlves may Impeach him; they can remove
him If found guilty; they can suspend hint
"When BiisDeeteil. and the power will devoivn
on the Vice-President. Should he be susneeted
also, he may likewise be suspended till "he be
Impeached and removed, and the I.egiH
Jature may make a temporary appointineut.
i'his Is a great security."
This passage was cited a few days since by
the Washington Chronicle, the special oreau of
the impeachment party, and was made the
Ibasis of an impassioned appeal for immediate
action; and the great authority of Mr. Madison
wpon every poiut of constitutional construc
tion certainly gave to the movement a degree
f Importance it had never before enjoyed.
Jtfr. George T. Curtis, however, kuown as au
able lawyer and publicist, has shown in are
cent letter to the World that it is scarcely
credible that Mr. Madisou ever should have
expressed such an opinion. It Is found in the
debates of the State Conventions, made up by
Elliott from newspaper reports, which were
never subjected to revision, and were wholly
without authority; while this declaration so
explicitly contradicts the opinions uniformly
expressed by Madison on this very point, as to
i Tender it Id the highest degree improbable
that he should ever have made it. But even it
h Hrl make it. it was for the purpose of evadine
an objection urged in debate against a special
virnvl sinn of the Constitution: aud an opinion
thus uttered is scarcely entitled to great weight
a liberate construction of that instrument.
But neither Madison's deliberate opinion, nor
the intent and purpose of the Constitution on
this point, is open to doubt or conjecture. Both
are on record in clear and explicit terms. In
the Convention which formed the Constitution,
after it had been decided that some provision
should be made for the impeachment and trial
of the President, in cases which should require
it, there whs great difference of opinion as to the
tribunal by which the trial should be held; and
It was only after considerable debate that the
existing provision was adopted by which the;
House of Representative should impeach and
the Senate try. After this Lad beeu decided,
and during a revision of the whole, we rind this
record made by Madison himself, and pub
lished in bis report of the debates:
"Mr. Kntledga and Mr. Gouvernour Morris
moved 'that persona Impeached oe suspended
until they be tried and acquitted.'
'Mr. Madison The President is mndo too de
pendent already on the Ijefjlsliituro by the
power of one lrartch to try him In consequence
of an Impeachment by the other. This inter
mediate suspicion will put him In the powor of
one branch only. They can, at any moment,
in order to mukewny for the function of another
who will be more favorable to their views,
vote n temporary removal of tho existing
"Mr. King concurred in the opposition th the
"On the question to opree to it, the vote was:
"Aye Connecticut, South Carolina, Georpla.3.
"No New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland,
Virginia, North Carolina 8."
This was the action of the Convention which
formed the Constitution taken deliberately anil
alter debate upon the precise- point In ques
tion. There is no room left for inference as to
the intent of the Convention, and its action
was too explicit to leave any ground or neces
sity for construction of its language. The pro
position to suspend from office upon impeach
ment and beiore trial and crmviction the same
now made by Butler, Phillips, and their con
federateswas distinctly made and distinctly
rejected. Kiht States out of eleven iefused to
authorize any such action, and that for the ren
sons nssiened by Madison, namely, that it
would make the Kxecutive dependent upon oue
branch of the Legislature, and enable the
House to displace him at any moment, "in
order to make way for another person who
would be more favorable to their views." If the
Convention had acted with specitic reference to
the picposed action of the Thirty-ninth Con
gress, it could not have met that proposed
action by a more distinct and explicit pro
hibition. It refused, in the most unmistakable terms,
and in the most peremptory manner, to autho
rize the very step which Congress is now asked
to take. It foresaw the reasons why the attempt
would be made, and prohibited it for the very
reasons assigned. The object of the proposed
removal of Mr. Jobn-on, as avowed by those
who are scekinir to effect it, is "to make way
for another more favorable to their views;" and
it was to prevent their doing anything of the
sort that the Convention refused to give them
the power desired.
It will be very difficult, in tho face of this
record, to convince the country that either
branch of Coneress has power under the Con
stitution to suspend the President upon im
peachment, and before his ' trial and convic
tion." Nor will the expre-sion ascribed to Mr.
Madison in the Virginia State Convention offset
his declaration, recorded by himself, in the
Convention which framed the Constitution
The High Court of Impeachment Under
From the Herald.
"But tor all that," said Galileo, "the world
does move;" and this is the key-note, the
great idea upon which this journal was founded
and the secret of its success. When, looking
carefully at tho drift of events, the pressure of
public opinion, and the necessities of the age,
we first boldly struck out for a Constitutional
amendment abolishing slavery, the proposition
was pooh-poohed iu some quarters, denounced
in others as involving an overthrow of the
Constitution, and was generally classed with
"the Pope's bull against the comet." But
public opinion was brought to bear by the dis
cussion of that amendment uutil it was fixed in
the supreme law of the land. In the same way
the doubts, the incredulity, and apprehensions
which prevailed when wc first broached the
saving alternative of Andrew Johnson's im
peachment, are rapidly disappearing. Journals
of all parties and all sections are joining iu the
discussion. The great body of the people, iu
having their attention drawn to the Constitu
tion, the precedents established, and the teach
ings of history, are already disabused of the fal
lacy that there is something of that divinity
about our President which "hedges iuakiug."
and they realize tne tact that, under the powers
of the two House? of Congress, his impeachment
and displacement are as plain a case as the
removal of a village postmaster.
It is a necessity iu a constitutional Govern
ment that in some department the ultimate
sovereignty over an the others shall exist. Ex
perience in Eneland established this authority
in the Parliament over the King, after many
bloody conflicts, lrom 1C25 to 1C88, when, under
the Prince of Orange, the subordination of the
King, through his Cabinet, to tho Commons,
was established. Thus even the great and pow
erful Duke of Wellington, as Prime Minister,
in comine: into conflict with the ( ominous ou
the Reform bill of his day, found himself as
powerless as the weakest of his predecessors.
His resignation involved the submission of the
King to the Commons, the law-making repre
sentatives of the people. Our Constitution,
framed upon the English model, embraces the
English system in the matter of impeachment;
but ours is more direct and explicit in subordi
nating the President himself to the will of the
An adverse vote of the Commons displaces the
English Ministry, and the King or Queen ap
points a new fcet of ministers, in accordance
with the vote, aud this ends the conflict. With
us the Cabinet is not disturbed by au adverse
majority in the Commons or House of Repre
sentatives; but the President and Cabinet, in
pushing their hostility to a usurpation of tl..
exclusive powers of Congress, may be impeached
by the House, and removed on conviction by
the Senate. The security of the Constitution
against Congress is in the people, aud in their
election every two years of a new House of
Representatives, with one-third of the Senate
by the State Lecislatures.
Hence the safety of the sovereign power of
the Government in Congress. Nor dees this
sovereign power over the President depend upon
his conviction by the Senate. An opinion of
Madison Is quoted by a Copperhead contem
porary to prove that Mr. Johnson cannot be
suspended; but we think It proves, if anythiuir.

The New Reconstruction Bill.
From the World.
The crude and foolish bill agreed on by the
Kceonstriiefion Committee on Wednesday, and
carried through its second reading in the House,
attests the strong necessity the radicals lcel
themselves under of doing something, and the
impossibility of their doing anything tbit will
help them. They are like a pickerel ierked out
of water and flung loose upon the dry land.
They flounce and flounder, unable, to "flop"
back inlo the element where they were wont to
cut tlcir liquid way, and they expend their
whole lund of spasmodic enerey to bring them
selves to the last gasp. A bill to rcmaud the
Southern States back to the custody of martial
law is an extreme and desperate expedient, car
rying with it a confession that the radicals have
no resources of statesmanship, and are inca
pable of devising any civil measures to lift them
out of the existing dead-lock.
In the first place, the production of such a
bill is a virtual retreat from the project of im
peaching the President. The sole purpose of
dividing the South into five military depart
ments lor the administration of martial law,
vesting the appointment of the five commanders
in General Grant, and suspending the writ of
habeas corpus, is to thwart and circumvent Pre
sident Johnson. If he were out of . oflice, or
were expected to be put out of oflice,no such wild
plan could be thought of. Such an attempt to
sail round the obstructing isthmus of the Ex
ecutive Department proves that there is no
longer any expectation of digging through it.
The only obstacle to Congress governing the
South as it pleases, without so extreme a resort
as martial law, is the opposition of the Presi
dent; and a method which assumes that obsta
cle will continue to exist, is an admission that
nothing Is expected ot impeachment.
It being thus virtually conceded that Mr.
Johnson is to remain in office, the question
arises whether this bill will suffice to muzzle
him. The pivot on which the contemplated
martial law is made to turn is General Grant,
who is required to designate the officers and
superintend the system. But General Grant
must remain subordinate to the President, and.
like all other officers of the army, subject to
bis command. It is not in the power of Con
gress to invert this relation, nor to transfer
obedience oi the army to any other officer than
the President. The Constitution declares that
the President "shall be Commander in-Chief of
the army and navy, and of the militia when in
actual service;" and an authority conferred by
the Constitution cannot be revoked by law.
The chief command ot the army is authority to
direct all its movements, to control all its offi
cers, to assign to each of them his duties and
exact his obedience. Congress can raise
armies, provide for their support, and make
rules for their Government; but it can issue no
command to any officer, nor interpose any offi
cer between the Commander-in-Chief and any
portion of the army to interrupt the transmis
sion or break the authority of his orders. The
idea ot taking General Grant, and a set of offi
cers whom he is required to designate, out of
tne control ot the president, ana relieving them
from their subordination to him as Commander-in-Chief,
flies so directly in the teeth of the
Constitution that it can never be put in practi
Anoihcr fatal obiectiou to this scheme is that
it suspends the habeas corpus in time of peace.
The Constitution declares that "the privilege of
tne writ oi naueas corpus snail not be sus'
pended, unless when in cases of rebellion or
invasion the public safety may require it." At
present, there is neither invasion nor rebellion
in any part of the country. There is nowhere a
single soldier in arms against the Government,
nor any refusal bv any citizen to submit to its
legal authority. Under such circumstances, a
suspicion of the habeas corpus is peremptorily
forbidden, and Congress has no power to repeal
this or any other part of the Constitution. If
this bill passes, it will be null and void from
