THE IMPEACHMENT Q.UKSTIOJT.
WASHINGTON, January G_The Republican mem?
bers of the House of Representatives held a cau?
cus at the Capitol to-night. About sixty Represen?
tatives were present. Spaulding, of Ohio, offered
a resolution that no measure looking toward the
impeachment of the President of the United States
should be presented in tho House unlees previous?
ly agreed upon by a caucus. This was amended
by providing that before any final action by the
caucus the subject should be referred to the Com?
mittee on Judiciary.
Mr. Ashley, of Ohio, moved an amendment that
no articles ?f impeachment should be preferred
without first being considered by a caucus. This
was adopted.
Mr. Stevens moved that the whole subject be
laid upon thc table. The'question was determin?
ed in the negative by a vote of nearly two ter ono.
The'original resolution, as amended, was agreed
to by a largo majority. There was much inciden?
tal debate between Bingham, Stevens and others,
on the legal question involved, namelv: Whether
an impeachment could be partly tried by the Son
ate of the 39th Congress; also, whether the House
of Representatives of the 39th Congres? could pre?
fer articles of impeachment to he tried by the Sen?
ate of the 40th Congress; or whether, should arti?
cles of impeachment bo now preferred and that
not concluded at the expiration of the present
Congress, they would have to be renewed in the
40th Congress.
Mr. Stevens took the ground that the Senate did
not expiro with the Congress, on the 4th of March
next, it being a perpetual body.
Mr. Bingham replied, arguing that as one-third
of the present Senators would go out on tho 4th of
March, the President could not afterward continue
to be tried by a Senate composed of one-third
new members on articles partially tried by the pre?
ceding Senate.
Mr. Stevens thought there was ample time for
this Congress to act in tho matter. He was, how?
ever, not in favor of hastening a subject of so
much importance too rapidlv, and then yielding
after preferring charges. Members of Congress
should have time to give tho subject- d . o delibera?
tion. He believed that it ought to bo done, but
was not willing to join in it unless-it should be
performed thoroughly and certainly.
Mr. Spaulding, of Ohio, opposed the proposed
action very earnestly, and did not believo any good
could result from it.
Mr. nigby. of California, thought it tho most
momentous question that hnd been presented for
the consideration of the members of tbisJCongress,,
and deprecated any hasty action.
Mr. Washburno,. of Illinois, did not think im
^Leachment possible;' and while ho believed the
^President did many things that were objoctiona
' ble, he thought that the question of impeachment
should bo referred to a standing Committee, in
order to have it regularly and dispassionately con?
sidered.
.The debato between these gentlemen was ex?
tremely spirited. Bingham speaking in his usual
impulsive style, and Mr. Stovene exhibiting a cor?
responding degree of.earnestness.. Iney .became
personal in their remarks. The caucus, however,
was in the main harmonious. There appeared to
he generally a disposition to vote for any inquiry
into the matter as to whether the President should
oe impeached, while a large number were of
opinion that the President ought to be impeached.
Mr. Bingham made the point that article.*, of im?
peachment for tho reason ho had prov?ously sta?
ted should not bo preferred during the present
Congress for want of time ; and reminded gentle?
men that the trial of Warren Hastings lasted seven
years.
It waa finally determined that no resolution look?
ing towards the impeachment of the President
should .be adopted unless sanctioned by a vote of
two-thirds of the Republican members in caucus ;
that in the meantime, all resolutions on the sub?
ject should be referred to tho Judiciary Committee
of the House without debate. The caucus was in
session two hours, and then adjourned.

Tart of the Arkansas delegation visited Mr.
STEVENS to-day. The interview is described as
somewhat froBtj. Mr. STEVENS asked a number oi
questions, and -'nquired of his visitors if among
ihom they had seen his enabling act. Ho fur?
nished a copy, and advised thom to study it, as it
would be the policy of Congress-at least, he said,
as the ruler of the Radicals, it is the policy which
I shall support. The interview closed with an in?
vitation to call to-morrow. The Arkansas delega?
tion found little to comfort them in Mr. STEVENS'
words, tone and manner. Mr. RICE, of Maine, was
also visited. He received his visitors very politely,
and talked quietly of the condition of the country.
The dinner at Mr. SEW Aim's is des-ribed as a bril?
liant affair, In addition to the delegation, a num?
ber of invited guests and Colonol SEWARD were at
table. During the evening every member of the
Cabinet and General GRANT visited the delegation
in Mr. SEWARD'S parlors.
The conversation waa mainly political, but of a
non-committal character. General GRANT ox
Eressod himself more heartily than is his custom,
oping for a speedy restoration of political and
social relation. The members of tho delegation
are much encouraged. They ?nd affairs more
hopeful than they had expected, without receiving
absolute assurance from any member. They aro
satisfied that the Cabinet is a stubborn unit
in opposition to Radical measures. Thor have no
doubt of violent action in Congress, but they
say the Republican party is by no means a uni :,
and they have confidence in a returning power,
more potent than two-third rules and Presidential
vetoes. The reduction of a sovereign State to tho
condition of territorial dependency, they think is
repugnant to law, justice, and the Constitution,
and sho cid the Radical policy find two-thirds of
Congress in its favor, it w?l find a potent check in
the Supreme Court.
It is stated that STEVENS will introduce on Mon?
day, a resolution instructing the Judiciary Com?
mittee to prepare a bili declaring the Southern
Districts in a state of siege, suspending the habeas
corpjts, and providing military governments until
the States are regularly admitted. _

mend reduced rates so as to reduce the tempta?
tion.
WASHISOTON, January 6.-The Texan members
of Congress publish, in to-morrow's Intouigenctr,

Notwithstanding the action of the caucus last
night, many Republicans urge the presentation of
Ashley's resolution, and its pressuro ta a vote to?
morrow.
Prominent Southern Union mon, returned to?
night from a tour of inspection through Tennosseo,
Georgia aud the Carolinas, represent thc antipathy
to the Constitutional Amendment as almost uni?
versal, anda general disposition to abandon poli?
tics, and not even send Senators or Representa?
tives to Congress, but devote themselves to
material prosperity.
A petition to the President in behalf of Edmund
Spanglcr, at Dry Tortugas, states that the evidence
against him for complicity in the assassination
conspiracy, waa feeble and contradictory, and that
many witnesses were deterred from testifying in
his behalf from terror.
The Grand Lodge of Virginia recognizes the
Union Lodge of Alexandria, which has heretofore
been working under a dispensation from the Grand
Lodgo of tho District oi Columbia, which was held
to be clandestine.
Thad. Stevens leaves to-morrow night for Har?
risburg, to be present at the Senatorial election,
the result of which is considered doubtful.
CONGRESSIONAL.
WASHINGTON, Janunry 0.-The Finance Com?
mittee of the Senate considered the appoint?
ments to-day, and made a proposition to reject
them en masse, which was lost bv one vote.
The committee fearing it would look like spite,
have finally concluded that those formerly of
the Republican party, who abandoned it to ob?
tain office, be rejected. In otb. r cases where tho
appointments had been given to those who had
served ia the army or navy, or wore consistent
Democrats and good officers, that conni- : ation be
recommended- \
The House went into a Committee on the Whole
SPAULDING,' of Ohio, took the ground that the
adoption of the Constitutional Amendment by
three-fourths of the loyal States made it a part of
the Constitution, and its ratification or rejection
by the South was only important as an indication
of submission. He had made his canvass on ad?
mission of Southern representa tires on the incor?
poration of the amendment. SPAULDING could
not be driven out of tho Republican party, but
warned the President that a resort to extreme
measures would produce reaction.
The discussion then turned on the Tariff and the
resumption of specie payments. STEVENS recur?
ring to SPAULDrNo's proposition of admission on
the incorporation of the amendment, said thc doc?
trine was wrong and mischievous. If it was agreed
the adoption of the amendment by three-fourths
of the loyal States was sufficient, Congress stulti?
fied itself by asking the rebel districts to ratify the
amendment. He did not recognize the organiza?
tion of the Southern States as governments ; that
Congress proposed saying to those States you have
no governments ; we repudiate all your govern?
ments ; go on and form such-governments as Con?
gress orders you to form.
He had voted for the admission of Tennessee
without regard to Amendment, but added that
the disloyal States were not States, they were our
conquered provinces, having in their Capitols cer?
tain municipal institutions not yet disturbed, but
which Gongreso could And would disturb; flo would
vote far the admission af no State whose Constitu?
tion forbids negro votes. Referring to "excTrisibn'?F
negro votes in Pennsylvania and other Northern
States, he said they ought to blush for the infamous
exclusion. He had said nothing in the House
looking to the impeachment of the President,.but
he regretted; however, that he-had been held back
so long, because the President waa a? obstruction
to ail loyal action, and an eye-sore to all loyal men
except the gentleman from Ohio, Mr. SPAULDING.

Our Washington Letter.
[FEOM OUB SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT, j
WASHINGTON, January 2,1867.-New Year's Day
yesterday was rather more of a success in Wash?
ington than Christmas. The latter was cold, un?
eventful and deserted. New Year's, on the con?
trary, bristled all ovor with good cheer, and
became a great and attractive feature the moment
the way-farer's feet turned towards the President's,
or the residences of any of his Cabinet. Every?
body turned out about eleven o'clock to call on
the President, and that duty done, everybody
placed their own houses in order, and prepared to
receive all that came. The President's reception
was indescribably brilliant, embracing, aa it did,
the presence of tho diplomatic corps in the re?
galia of the respective court? represented, and j
several hundred army and navy officers. The
general public woro very largely in attendance,
and among tho crowd was a solitary negro. Mr.
Johnson smiled, took the darkey by the hand, and
the latter went on his way in an ecstacy of negro j
delight. Last year the concourse of colored peo?
ple that waited on the White House was very
large. It is probable that they have been taught
to expect that the President is going to veto the
Universal Suffrage Bill for this district, and so
determined to forego tendering the Chief Magis?
trate "tho complimente of the season."
To-morrow Congress commences, and there will
be a scramble for the introduction of bills and
resolutions that have been preparing by ambitious
Congressmen during the recess. Thad. Stevens is
?trimed with bills reformatory of the executive' and
udicial branches or the Government. Both are
induced byan excess of bile-first as applied to tho
President, and lastly to the Supreme Court, which
has become a thing of evil in Radical eyes, since
the decision invalidating the jurisdiction of mili?
tan,- commissions in districts where civil law waa
in competent operation. Mr. Stevens- should be
lenient to the Supremo Court Bench, however, as
four out of the nine judges, headed by Chief Jus?
tice Chase, went out of their way in promulgating
the above decision, to give a supplemental minor?
ity opinion to the effect that, during the exigen?
cies of a war: Congress might poss a law validat?
ing the setting up of military commissions, even
in States and districts where no war.or rebellion
existed. This' extra opinion, which waa altogether
in excess of the question at issue, was obviously
thrown out by Mr. Chase and three associates as
a palliative to the Radicals for their unanimity
upon tho decision finding military courts and com?
missions unconstitutional amid civil tribunals and
without war or rebellion. But. the w?^i~ia refuse
to be appeased, and Old Thad.'a bill, looking to re?
form in the judiciary system, is looked for as the ,
one especial judgment, before which the ancient '
gown and wig of the Supreme Bench must humble
itself to the very dust.
One J. M. Ashley, member of the lower House
from Ohio, an amiable nonentity in his party, and
famous for nothing but an overweening personal
conceit, is ambitious to offer a joint resolution
to-morrow, calling upon the Southern States to
assemble Conventions in abort order, that, new
governments may be set up, "republican in farm."
Tho fact is, that ever since Ashley introduced, at
the beginning of the session, the r?solution in- <
quiring of the Judiciary Committee- whether any
officers ot tho Government of the United States
had done that which merited impeachment, and
which produced quite a : sensation at the time,
Ashley has been in an agony of solicitude how to
I keep up his unexpected notoriety, j He has labored
assiduously all through tho recess in plotting- how
to keep up the popularity of his name, and has
I finally nit upon the subject of the-above resolution
as the one thing requisite to all his hopes. Under
the circumstances, you may hear of some very
bold propositions emanating from the ambitious
Ashley; but let them pass as the idle wind, for the
conceited ass never gets further than to propose
legislation, and has not the mental capacity or
clearness to follow up, if he would.
The leaders of Congress have got to decide fair
I ly and sanarely within a week, what is to he the
\ finale [ of- Southern exclusion, and whether the
Constitu? ?anal - Amendment; adopted by those
States, will suffice to clear the path for their
enlree to representation. Gov. Patton is still here
to press this question in.behalf of alabama: and a :
large delegation from the 'Arkansas Legislature
arrived b. t this .morning, to gather light- in the
same direction. These, gentlemen, do not propose
to be put off with any geneinlfring, or easily -per
tarted answer, but will seek such men as Fessen
den, Howard and Wade, in the Senate, and in the
House, Wood, Stevens, Boutwell, Wilson, Garfield,
and others, of whom they will courteously press
responses as to whether the Constitutional Amend?
ment may be regarded-as the Concessional-ulti?
matum concerning the admittance of the States;
and if not. what'may be so;considered,audio
what extent may the South expedite the solution
of the problem of re IOM traction. Thus approach?
ed, these Congressional head-centres will have to
speak out, one way or the other, and it will proba?
bly result in a refusal to guarantee that th? Adop?
tion of the Constitutional Amendment win insure
restoration. This will be a good point for the ]
people to know, who have all along been led in the
North to believe that the Amendment was the
?rand sticking point that deferred re-union, Un
eception cannot come to them too soon. .
' The Congressional excursion party to New Or?
leans is. expected home to Washington to-night
The Radicals who remained behind; bave watched
the progress of events with marked attention and
not a. Sttie solicitude for the partisan stability of
their absent associates. Particularly wa? the
course and speeches of Senator Wade noted with
extreme care, not to .say jealousy, and even now,.
upon the eve of return, the Radicals are not quite
certain how they shall find the graff old fellow,
whether all corses, as usual, for ' everything, south
of Mason and Dixon's hue, or considerably moni- ?
fled and disposed to temporise and abate the more
extreme rigors of Congressional reconstmotioc.
The meagre reports of his speeches that bambeen ,
brought over the wires have worried "the faith?
ful" unceasingly, being, in their estimation suro
signs of a softening cf the heart and a general en?
largement or tho impulses of charity toward all
men. Wade will undoubtedly be mounted as soon j
as he sets foot within the capitol, to determine the
apprehensions of his friends. For my own part, I
have no doubt that he wfil stand ap for prescribing
no other requisito for final reconstruction than the
ratification of the Constitutional Amen intent, and
such a position for him will be a great blow to the
extremists, who have the Radical scourge in view
in all that pertains to the South.
There has actually sprung up an Ortega Lobby
in Washington, altogether myBterous, as yet, in
personnel, yet undeniably ready for opera?
tions upon Congress and the. Executive.
The interest has sprang up in s twink?
ling, and no doubt owes its birth at this
time 11 the well known and popularly discussed
failure of the late mission of Gen. Shermau and
Minister Campbell to Mexico in search of Juarez
and his mythical government It is rumored that':
this new lobby in a rival Mexican 1 Republican in?
terest, has so far gained a tooting in the halls of.
the national legislature, aa to1 secure the prospec?
tive introduction of a resolution providing that it
will not; be. expedient at this time for the United
States to manifest any partiality or aid for ona na?
tive Mexican faction ; over another. This ia. of
course, to cut off Juarez from any favors from this
j country, and these withheld, Ortega and hiB party
aro confident of wresting the , Presidency from his
grasp.
It now becomos a matter of speculation whether
Ortega's agents in' Washington will endeavor to
carry tho day by bribery. Last season, when re?
solutions were so thick in ibe House proposing
that the United States guarantee the Saith of the
fifty million Mexican loan, just about to be put
upon the market, the Mexican beads were aa thick
as blackberries 'in offerof payment'of services
beneficial to the passage of the reaolutioc, in ques?
tion. But the' 'disbursement 3nw small ?ad eras
Fenian bonds' would nave been preferred by the
few who did receive the worthless Mexicanos

OBITUARY.
DIED, suddenly, on September 91st, at the residence j
of her husband, in this city, Mrs. ADELAIDE F. WAG
NEB, aged 21 years, 8 months, 37 days.
How common it Is to read such records, and what little
impression they make upon tho general reader t But
when it comes home to us-when one who glided about
our house Uko an angel of light; whose loving smile
cheered us when depressed; whose soft hand, with af?
fectionate touch, smoothed the aching brow; whoso nat?
ural cheerfulness and loveliness rendered all around her
happy-when snob a one is suddenly snatched away, and
we know that we can soe the loved face no moro on earth,
oh t how the stricken heart aches-how utterly cheerless,
dark and dreary the world appears.
We will not enumerate the many virtues of Mrs. WAO
Nxn-they are written in the hearts of those who know
her best. But, surely, the grim Reaper, with his ruth?
less scythe, never mowed down a lovelier flower-lovely
in form, feature and character.
Could the agonising prayers and tears of a doting
mother, sisters, husband and friends have retained her,
thon would not Mrs. WAONEK have left us. But it was
not to be so; God had otherwise ordered, and we bow to j
His will, trying to say "The Lord gave, and tho Lord ;
hath taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord."
Farewell, my friend I Life's journey o'er,
Thy angel face well see no more
Until, all earthly trials done.
We meet around the eternal throne.
Oh I may we Join the happy band
That on tho right shall Joyful stand.

The Truth about Dyspepsia. .
Whoever saya that dyspepsia ia incurable, tells a
that is to say, makes an egregious mistake. More than
ten thousand aggravated coses have been cured by HOS
TETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS, while the number |
that have boen prevented from to a head, by the
?ame maana, ia incalculable. In Winter and ?arly Spring,
when the appetite la some times too vigorous for the
comfort and safety of the stomach. Indigestion is moat
prevalent and most distressing. Is tho appetite to be
balked to accommodate the digestive organs? Not so;
fur then the frame would lack ita doe proportion' of nu?
triment. The thing to be done ia to STRENGTHEN THE
STOMACH, tone the liver, una put tho bowels ' in> perfect
order. Nothing win da thia so effectually, so ntpidly, so
quietly, so pleasantly aa HO STETTEK'S SITTERS. Thia,
potent preparation trims and batanees th&Jpratem, and
clothes it, aa it were, with defensivo armor. Chronic
dyspepsia, liver complaint, and fever and-ague, are never
known to attack those who an wise enough to invoke
the aid of tula great preventive. 6 January 7
