Caucuulajr of Delegation!.
From tht ff. Y. World of thit morning.
Last evening was spent by most of the dele
gates In ascertaining bow tbe vole would be to
day on candidates. The Fendluton men from
different States held a caucus at tbe Fifth
Avenue Hotel lo work out their programme of
operations lor to day. They are confident of
success, aud base Ihelr oonfldenceon ttiecalou
' lation that all Houthrn delegations will, on the
11 fib. ballot, vole solid for Pendleton. With that
vote they hope lo receive sufficient to noml
JUate him. One of Ihelr plan 1 to have
the North refuse to vote on the first
hnJlot or two, and then vote for
th man vho receives a majority of
the votes In tbe Northern Btates. This they
ie confident will be Pendleton. They count
114 vo-.s an certain on the first ballot, and
believe that thev will Inert ase on every subse
quent ballot. This Is their calculation, while
tbe best figures among those opposed to Pendle
ton do not give hlra as lance a vole as that In
the fctart, and are confident that he will not get
a majority vote In auy ballot. Some of the
frlenusol the other candidates, laboring under
tbe belief that Pendleton's friends will
not be able to nominate him, but will
make the nomination In tbe end, propose
to cabt the vote of tbelr delegation on tne
start for Pendleton, in hopes, in the end
of receiving the entire Pcndle.tou vote for their
candidate. This will swell his vole on tne sturt
to a higher figure than it ot herwlse would be.
Among thosei which may vote in IhH way M
California and Nevada, hoping to thus, In the
end, benefit Judxe Field, and a portion of Mis

yet. manifests a determination to scatter their
vole, until they see who will bo most, nccept

In this calculation thn Hinted nf Pnlif.irnhi

Delaware is given to Pendleton, but in the cal

they did not count Delaware. Those three
states are the only changes of any moment
from the canvass of Pendleton's friends so

The Htate or Michigan had not decided
last night bow they would vote. Tuey are put
down above as divided between Hancock and

this morning i.tid decide how the vole shall be

StcvaBs'a New Impitchmtst Articles.
Sj ecial Despatch lo The Evening Telegraplu
Washington, July 7. The following are the
new aud additional articles of Impeachment
against Andrew Johnson, prepared by Hon.
lhaddens Stevens, of Pennsylvania, and by htm
presented to the House of Representatives this
Whereas, A high court of Impeachment has'
lately been in session to try Andrew Johnson,
Piesident of the United States, for high crimes
and misdemeanors, fnd has adjourned without
completing its judgment; and whereas, it is
proper that additional articles should be filed,
if tbe House deems it expedient, therefore,
Jiesotved, That a committee of be ap
pointed to prepare additional articles of Im
peachment, and report the same, iu substance
Additional Articles of Impeachment exhibited 6v
the Jiouae uf Jtepreseiilulive. in the name of
tiemaetvf unci of all the people of the United
Mutes atainst Andrew Johnson, l'revUtcnt of the
United States, in mumlenunae and support of
their impeachment against him for high crimes
and misdemeanors in ojlce.
FlHST ADDITIONAL ARTICLE. That the Baid
Andrew Johnson, President of the Uuited
States, did abuse the patronage of the Govern
ment, which, by virtue of his high office, had
been entrusted to him, and did pervert It to im
proper and selfish purposes, inasmuch as he
used it to corrupt the people of the United
Btates, and to Induce them to abandon aud
renounce the principles which they conscien
tiously held, and to adopt others which they
did not approve, in order to promote tbe selfish
purposes of the said Andrew Johnson. Tbe
President of the United Stales came into power
and received his office because he professed to
hold the principles of the Republican party,
and zealously avowed his determination to
carry them into effect. When he came Into
power, he found the offices of the Government,
mcny thousands lu number, filled with men
professing the same Republican priuolples, and
who had been appointed expressly to carry them
Into effeot. When by a fatal acoldeat he
become the Chief Executive of tbe nation, be
determined lo seek an elootlou for the same
office at the next Presidential term. He iorc
saw that it would become necessary to renouuoe
tbe principles ol the Republican party, and to
establish a new personal parly especially de
voted to himself, and he did not hesitate to
apply to that object the profits of thousands of
offices, and millions of revenue. lie set delibe
rately about turning faithful officers out of their
places, because they would not renounce their
principles, and of appointing others to office
because they pledged themselves to support
him and bis principles. The removals and ap
pointments were avowedly made for no cause
of merit or demerit, but for the purpose of ad
ding recruits lo his new party.
Second Additional Article. That the said
Andrew Johnson being tbe chief Executive of
tbe United Btates, and being assigned by law to
the duties to take care that the laws shall be
faithfully executed, and having no Judicial or
legislative power confided to him by tbe Consti
tution, all bis duties being strictly executive,
did, on the 20th day of May, 1865, and before and
after that time, usurp to himself the powers of
another branch of the Government, and did do
acts and exercise lunctions which belonged to
the legislative branch alone; and in pursuance
of tuch claim, having at the time the army and
navy of tbe Uuited Btates at nis command,
did establish and erect luio a separate gov
ernment that portion of tbe United States
from the lately so-called Confederate Btates
of Amerloa, and wblca was lately embraced
within the boundaries of tbo Stale of
North Carolina, aud did by bis owu nsurpel
authority create a Stale and form of govern
ment hitherto unknown to tbe United Stales,
and did create an office hitherto unknown to
our Constitution, and appointed thereto an
officer whom be called Provisional Governor,
aud directed him how to coustruotaud oarry
out said government. He fixed, and by his
own will decreed the qualifications of electors,
and who should be eligible to office in the new
government, which he by proclamation de
clared was deprived of all civil government by
tbe armed forces of the Independent belligerents
with whom wehad been at war; and beappolnted
W, W. Ilolden to the office of Provisional Gov
ernor of North Carolina, and directed him Id
administer the offices of the iiewly-oreated
On the 13th of June, 1865, he usurped the same
powers, and without any direction from Cou
gress, to whom alone it belonged, erected Into
an independent State that part of conquered
territory formerly known as tbe Btate of Missis
sippi, and appointed William L. Sharkey, Pro
visional Governor thereof. And on tbe 17th of
June, 1805, he In like manner ereoted a portion
of said territory Into what be called the State of
Georgia, and appointed Jamea Johnson Provi
sional Governor thereof. On or about the 17th,
21st, and 30th of June, and the 13th of July, he
In like manner created UoverumeuU which bo
Called tbe States cf Texas, South Carotins, and
Florida. And when afterwards Congress de
clared such Governments and ocnvtllutloni
null and void, and prescribed other methods of
governing said territory; and to enable It to
enter the Union by the consent of Congress, the
President declared such laws null and void, and
advised the people to resist their execution; and
be bas never aided in carrying into effect, but
has resisted what are called the "Reconstruction
Tiiikd Additional Articlic. For that An
drew Johnson, President of tbe United Slates,
by bis corrupt practices, did attempt to lnduoe
the Senators elect from the Stale of Colorado to
perjure themselves upon tho condition of his
siguing the bill admitting Colorado Into the
Union as a Slate, and thereby admitting them
as Senators of tbe Uuited States.
He did also pardon and restore the right o
franchise to 193 deserters, who during the war
d- seited from the United States array, upon
condition that they would vote for the Demo
cratic parly at the theu immediately ensuing
election; aud they did thus vote, and gave to
the Democratic agent, Hon. Tuuuus Ii. Flor
ence, tbe sum of S1000 lu cash.
He appointed numerous persons to olllcd who
could not take tbe test oath, aud did not lake it.
but were allowed to act aud discuaro the
functions thereof in defiance of law.
He ordered agricultural scrip to be Issued to
the State of North Carollua, which scrip was
issued under the act of 1802, when North Giro
Una was lu armed warfare agalust the Union.
He restored, without authority of law, large
tracts of forfeited property; ouough, it is be"
Ueved, to pay the national debt, which had
been forfeited under act of Congress, approved
July 17, 1802. By teasou of all which outrages
this government became impoverished, tbe
people embarrassed, the Rebel raiders allowed
to flourish, aud the Constitution flagrantly
violated. He sold pirdons for money, or
allowed it to be done by pardon-brokers.
Fourth Adiutional Ahtici.k. He did take
from the Treasury of the Uuited States large
tracts of laud and large amounts of money,
sufficient, it is believed, to have paid our
national dtbts, and which had been transferred
to the United Btates by act of July 17, 1SG2, as
enemies' property, m be applied to the expenses
of the war and the debts of the Uuited States.
This was corruptly and unlawfully dono with
out any authority of Congress.
Fifth Additional Auticle. Ha dtd usurp

ment and exercise the legislative power in defi
ance of the Constitution, lu creating or attempt
ing to create new Governments out ot the ter
ritory conquered from the ''Confederate States

Before the vote was taken on Mr. Richard
son's motion, Mr. Murphy, of New York, rosa
to report from the Committee ou Resolutions
tbe platform agreed upou, which he sent to tue
Chair, where they were rend by Mr. Murphy.
They declare that the Democratic party, re
posing trust in tbe intelligence and Justice of
tbe people, standing upon the Constitution, re
cognizing slavery and secession as settled by
the late war, or voluntary action of the South
em Btates, never to be renewed, do demand the
immediate restoration of all tbe Htales.
(Cheers.) Amnesty for all political offenders,
and tue right or Boflrage In ll the States; pay

Sixth. Economy in Ihe administration, re
duction of the army and navy, abolition of the
Freed men's iiureau (cheers) and of the inquis
itorial modes ot collecting revenue, tariff for
revenue, and such equal taxation under internal
leveuue as will ail ird protection for bom our
native and adopted citizens against the
doctrine of lmmuiaule allegiance;
denounced the usurpation and tyranny of tue
radical party in its violation of their pledge in
the conduct of the war that It was only for the
preservation of the Union; having subjugated
the Btates, overthrown tbe freedom of speech
and of the press, established a system of espi
onage, disregarded the habeas corpus, made of
tbe national capital a bastlle, aud ihrea'ea to
destroy the original Jurisdiction of the Supreme
Court, and maligned the Chief Justice because
of bis integrity on the trial or tbe President.
The report continued at considerable leugth
to recite these abuses, and in conclusion de
clares that the privilege and trust of suilVage
belongs exclusively to tbe control of eaoh
Slate, and that Congress has usurped it In vio
lation of the Constitution. Specifically de
nounce he reconstruction acts as usurpations,
unconstitutional and void. The soldiers and
sailors' pensions are to be faithfully paid . The
public lands shall be reserved for homesteads,
aud thanks Andrew Johnson for resisting tne
bggreFslons of Congress. In conclusion, the re
port Invites men of all parties iu the past to

Tne Two-third Rail.
Mr. Seymour said it was Important that the
Convention, before proceeding 10 ballot, should
cleurly understand what the twothird rule
was. He was very anxious that no mis
apprehension should arise after a ballot
shall have been taken, and called upou the
Stcretary to read the decision of previous
Democratic Conventions lu regard to that rule,
and said if there should be any doubt upou
the operation and en'eot of said rule he
invited discussion and some form of resolution
by the Convention, which should determine
whether two-thlrdsof the entire Convention,
or If tbe vote should not be full, two-thirds of
all those voting should determine tbe ballot.
Mr. Richardson moved that two-thirds of all
tl e delegate vot lug upou any harlot shall de
