THE ULPEACHJUENT QUESTION.
WASHINGTON, January C.-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 r?solution that no measure looking toward the
impeachment of the President of the United States
should be presented in the House milo.- a previous?
ly agreed upon by a canella. This was amended
b"y providing that before any final, action by the
cancos the subject should bo referred to the Com?
mittee on Judiciary.
Mr. Ashley, of Ohio, moved an amendmont,that
no articles of impeachment should be preferred
without first being considered by a caucus: This
Mr. Stevens moved that-the whole s abject he
laid upon the tibie. The question was/ determin?
ed in the negative by a vote of nearly two to one.
The original resolution, as amended, was agreed
to hy a large majority. There was much inciden?
tal debate between Bingham, Stevens and others,
on the legal question involved, namely: Whether
au impeachment could be partly tried br the Sen?
ate of the 39th Congress; ?uso, whether the House
of Repr? BenU?l. es of the 39th Congress could pre?
fer artic tea of impeachment to be tried by the Sen?
ate of the 40th Congress; or whether, should arti?
cles of impeachment be now preferred and that 1
not concluded at the expiration of the present
Congress, they would have to be renewed in the
Mr. Stev ens took the ground that the Senate did
not expire 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 the 4th of
March, che President could not afterward continue
to be tried by a Senate composed of one-third
new members on articles partially tried by the pre?
Mr. Stevens thought there was ample time for
this. Congress to act in the matter.. Ho was, how?
ever, not in favor of-hastening a subject of so
much importance -, too rapidly, and then yielding
after prof erring charges. Members of Congress
should have time to give the subject d e delibera?
tion. F?o behoved-that it ought to bo done but
was not.-willing to i om m it. unless it-should be
performed thoroughly and certainly.
Mr. Spaulding, of Ohio, opposed the proposed
. action very earnestly, and did not believe ?nj good
could result from it.
Mr. Higby, of California, thought it the most
momentous question that had been presented for
the consideration of the mern bore of this Congress;
and deprecated any hasty action.
Mr. washburn e. of illinois, did not think im?
peachment possible; and while he believed the
President did many things that were objectiona?
ble, he thought? that th? question of impeachment
should be referred to a Standing Committee, in
order ta hare it regularly and dispassionately con?
sidered.' ' .- ? :? '? - : ? ' '? . ?', ?
The debato between these gentlemen'was ex?
tremely spirited. Bingham speaking innis usual
impulsive stylo, and Mr. at eve ne exhibiting a cor?
responding degree of earnestness. 'They became
persona! in their remarks. The caucus, however,
was in the main harmonious. There -appeared to
be generally a disposition to vote for any inquiry
into the matter as to whether the Presidont should
be impeached, while a largo number were of
opinion that the President Ought to be impeached.."
Mr. Bmgham mado tho point that articles of im- -'
peachment for the reason he had previously sta?
ted should not be preferred- during the present
Congress for want of time ; and reminded gentle?
men that tho trial of Warron Hastings lasted seven
It wan 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 the'Judiciary Committee
of the House without debate. The caucus was in
session two hours, ud then adjourned.

ence and, in a letter, charged Judge Ireland, who

hands of the Texan legal authorities. Judge

Part of the Arkansas delegation visited Mr.
I STEVENS to-day. The interview is described as
somewhat frosty. Mr. STEVENS asked a number oi

WOUMMJO tho policy of Congress-at least, he said,
as tho ruler or the* Radicals, it is the policy which

vitation to call to-morrow. Tho Arkansas delega?
tion fouud little to comfort thom in Mr. STEVENS'
words, tone and manner. Mr. RICE, of Maino, was
also visited. He received his visitors very politely,
and talked quietly of the condition of the country.
The dinner at Mr. SEWARD'S is des'ribed as a bril?
liant affair. In addition to the delegation, a num?
ber of invited guests and Colonel SEWABD were at
table. During the evening every member of the
Cabinet and General GBANT visited the delegation
in Mr. SEWARD'S parlors.
The conversation was mainly political, but of a
non-committal character. General GBANT CX
Eresaed 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 find affairs more
hopeful than they had expected, without receiving
absolute assurance, from any member. They uro
satisfied that the Cabinet is a stubborn unit
in opposition to Radical measures. Thay have-no
doubt of violent action in Congress, ont 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 the
condition of territorial dependency, they think is
repugnant to law, justice, and the Constitution,
and ano dd the Radical policy find two-thirds of
Congress in its favor, it will find a potent chock in
tile Supreme Court.

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 StateB made it a part of
the Constitution, and its ratification or rejection
by the South was only important as an indication
or submission. He had made his canvass on ad?
mission of Southern representatives on the incor?
poration of the amendment. SPAULDING could
not be driven out of the Republican party, but
warned the President that a resort to extremo
measures would produce r?action.
The discussion then turned on the Tariffand the
resumption of specie payments. STEVENS recur?
ring to SPAULDING-'S proposition of admission on
the incorporation of the amendment, said the doc?
trine was wrong and mischievous. If it was agreed
the adoption of the amendment by three-fourths
of tho loyal States was sufficient, Congross 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 Baying 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 hod voted for the admission of Tennessee
without regard to Amendment, but addod 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 Congress could and would di 3 turb. He would
vote for tbe admission of no-State whose Costitu?
tion forbids negro votos. Referring to exclusion of
negro votos in Pennsylvania and other Northern
States, be said they ought to blush for the infamous
exclusion. He hod said nothing in tho House
looking to the impeachment of the President, but
he regretted, however, that be had beon held back
so long, because the President was an obstruction
to all loyal action, and an eye-sore to all loyal men
except tbe gentleman from Ohio, Mr. SPAULDING.

Our Washington Letter.
[FROM OUR SPECIAL OOEBESPONDENT.]
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. Now Year's, on the con?
trary, bristled all ovor with _g"diod cheer, and
became a great and attractive feature the moment
the way-farers 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 bri'liant, embracing, as it did,
the presence of the diplomatic corps in the re?
galia of the respective courts represented, and
several hundred army and navy officers. The
general public were very largely in attendance,
and among the crowd was a solitary negra Mr.
Johnson smiled, took the darkey by the hand, and
tho latter went on his way in an ecstacy of negro
delight. Last year the concourse nf colored peo
Ele that waited on the White House waB very
urge. It is probable that they have been taught
to expect that the President is going to veto tho
Universal Suffrage Bill for this district, and so
determined to forego tendering the Chief Magis?
trate "the compliments 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. Thoa. Stevens ia
primed with bills reformatory of the executive and
judicial branches or the Government. ~ Both aro
induced byan excess of bile-first os applied to the
President, and lastly to the Supreme Court, which
has become a thing of ovil in Radical eyes, since
tbe decision invalidating tho jurisdiction of mili?
tary commissions in dis trie ta where civil law was
in competent operation. Mr. Stevens should bu
lenient to the Supreme Court Bench, however, as
four out of tho nine judges, headed by Chief Jus?
tice Chase, went out of their way m promulgating
the above decision, to give a supplemental minor?
ity opinion to the effect that, during the exigen?
cies of a war, Congress might pass 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 was altogether
in excess of the question at issue, was obviously
thrown out by Mr. Chase and tinco 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 Radicals refuse
to be appeased, and Old Thad's bill, looking to re?
form in the judiciary system, is looked for os the
ono especial judgment, before which the ancient
gown and wig of the Supreme Bench must bumble
itself to the very dust.
One J. M. Ashley, mern bor of tbe lower House
from Ohio, an r nuable 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 np, "republican in form."
The fact is, that ever since Ashley introduced, at
tho beginning of the session, the resolution in?
quiring of the Judiciary Committee whether any ,
officers ot thc Government of the United States
bad done that which merited impeachment, and
which produced quite a sensation at the time,
Ashley bas been in an agony of solicitude how to
keep up hie unexpected notoriety. Ho bas labored
assiduously all throngh the recess in plotting how
to keep up tho popularity of his nome, and has
finally hit upon tbe subject of tho above resolution
as the ono 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 aa the idle wind, for the
conceited ass never gets furtbor 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?
ly and squarely within a weok, what is to bo the
finale of Southern exclusion, and whether the
Constitutional Amondment, adopted by those
States, will suffice to cloar tho path for their
enlree to representation. Gov. Patten ie still here
to press this question in behalf of Alabama; and a
largo delegation from the Arkansas Legislature
arrived bjt this morning, to gather light in the
same direction. These gentlemen do not propoae
to be put off with any generalizing, or easdv per?
verted answer, hut will seek auch men as Feaaen
den, Howard and Wade, in the Senate, and in the
House, Wood, Ste vans, BoutweU, Wilson, Garfield,
and others, of whom they will courteously press
responses as to who thor the Constitutional Amend?
ment may be regarded os the Congressional ulti?
matum concerning the admittance of the States;
and if not, what may be so considered, and to
what extent may the South expedite the solution
of the problem of re: ona true ri on. Thus approach?
ed, these Congressional head-centres will nave to
speak out, ono way or the other, and it will proba?
bly result in a refusal to guarantee that the Adop?
tion of the Constitutional Amendment will insure
restoration. This will be a good point for the
Scopie to know, who have all along been lod in tho
orth to believe that the Amendment was the
grand sticking point that deferred re-union. Un
deception cannot como to them too soon.
Tho Congressional excursion party to New Or?
leans is expected borne to Woshuigton to-night.
Tho Radicals who remained behind have-watched
the progress of events with marked attention and
not a little solicitude for the partisan stability of
their absent associates. Particularly was the
course and speeches of Senator Wade noted with
extreme care, not to Bay jealousy, and even now,
upon tho ove of return, the Radicals are not quite
certain bow they shall find the gruff old fellow,
whether all curses, os usual, for everything: south
of Mason and Dixon's line, or considerably molli?
fied and disposed to temporise and abate tho moro
extremo rigors of Congressional reconstruction.
The meagro reports of his speeches that have been
brought over tho wires have worried 'Hhe faith?
ful" unceasingly, being in their estimation sure
signs of a softening of the heart and a general en?
largement of tho impulses of charity toward all
men. Wade will undoubtedly be mounted aB soon
as he sots foot within tho capitol, to determine the
apprehensions of his friends. For my own part, I
have no doubt that ho will stand up for prescribing
no other requisite for final reconstruction than the
ratification of the Constitutional Amonjment, and
Byob a position for him will be a groat blow to the
extremists, who bave tho Radical scourge in view
in all that pertains to the South.
Thorc has actually sprung up an Ortega Lobby
in Washington, altogether mysterous, as yet, in
personnel, yet undeniably ready for opera?
tions upon Congress and the Executive.
Tho interest has sprung up in a twink?
ling, and no doubt owes its birth at this
time t ) the well known and popularly discussed
failure of thc late mission of G-en. Sherman and
Minister Campbell to Mexico in soarch of Juarez
and his mythical government. It is rumored that
thia new lobby in a rival Mexican Republican in?
terest, has so far gained a footing in the halla of
the national legislature, as to 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 one na?
tivo Mexican faction over another. This is, of
course, to cut off Juarez from any favors from this
country, and these withheld, Ortega and his party
are coulident of wresting the Presidency from bis
It now becomes, a matter of speculation whether
Ortega's agents in Washington will endeavor to
carry i ho day by briber \\ Last season, when re?
solutions wore* so thick in tbe House proposing
that the United States guarantee the faith of the
fifty million Mexican loan, juat about to be put
upon tho market, thc Mexican honda were as thick
as blackberries in offer of payment of services
beneficial to tho passage of the resolution in ques?
tion. But the disbursement was small, and even
Fenian bonds would have been preferred by the
fow who did receive the worthless .-iexicanos.

DIED, suddenly, on September 21st, at the residence
of her husband, In thia city, Mrs. ADELAIDE F. WAG?
NER, aged 21 years, 8 months, 27 days.
How common it ia to read auch records, and what little
impression they make upon the general reader I But
when lt cornea home to us-when one who glided about
our house like an angel of light; whose loving andie
cheered us when depressed; whose soft hand, with af?
fectionate touch, smoothed the aching brow; whose nat?
ural cheerfulness and loveliness rendered all around her
happy--when BU oh a one is suddenly snatched away,'and
we know that we can see the loved face no more on earth,
oh I how th? stricken heart aches-how utterly cheerless,
dark and dreary the world appears.
We will not enumerate the many virtues of Mrs. WAS?
HES-they are written ta the hearts of those who knew
her beet. But, surely, the grim Reaper, with his ruth?
less scythe, never mowed down a lovelier flower-lovely
inform, feature and character.
Could the agonizing prayers and tears of a doting
mother, slaters, husband and Mends hare retained her,
then would not Mrs. WAONEH have left ns. But it was
sot to be so; God had otherwise ordered, and we bow to
His will, trying to say "The Lord gave, and tba 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 1 may we join the happy band
That on the right shall Joyful stand.

The Truth about Dyspepsia.
Whoever says that dyspepsia is Incurable, tells a
hat is to say, makes an egregious mistake. More than
ten thousand aggravated casos have been cured by HOS
FETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS, while the number
that bave been prevented from conting to a head, by the
isme means, is Incalculable. In Whiter and early Spring,
rhea the appetite is sometimes too vigorous for the
i?mfort and safety of the stomach, indigestion is most
pr?valant and most distressing. Is the appetite to be
3 ali ed to accommodate the digestive organs? Not so;
or then the trame would lack ita due proportion of nu
riment The thing to be done is to STBENOTHXN TEX 11
rro>uCH, tone the liver, and put tba bowels In perfect 11
irder. ' Nothing win do this so effectually, so rapidly, so
ptietly, so pleasantly as HOSTETTEB'S BITTERS. This
votent preparation trims and balances tho system, and
Jothes it, salt were, with defensive armor. Chronic
iyspepaia, liver complaint, and fever and ague, are never
mown to attack those who are wise enough to invoke
the aid of thia great preventivo. 6 January 7
