WASHTNOTON, March 27.
STANTON AND THE PRSSEDENT
Are st loggerheads, and the former n-ill certainly
ho removed if Congross retires from the field un?
til noxt December, so as to do away with the neces?
sity of looking to an immediate confirmation of
the War Minister's successor.
Yesterday, when the adjournment question was
running high ir- tb?? Senate, who should stalk into
that Chamber but the burley form of STANTON.
The latter has como to understand tho imminence
of his removal, and relies solely upon obtaining
from Congress tho passago of a resolution of con?
ditional adjournment, to save him from such ig-.,
nommons retirement. It was easy to note, even
from the Senate gallery yesterday, how zealously
he had entered upon the work of circumventing
the Administration in the determination to remove
While the debate upon the adjournment was
warmest, the wily old Minister moved froiritlic car
of one Senator to that of. another, until the whole
Radical round was completed, begging that he
might not be left alone to face the Presidential
wrath. A subsequent vote upon the proposition in- ?
dicates that the councils of STANTON had hut little
effect upon the desire of the Senate to go home
without looking to a reconvocation before tho al?
lotted time in December next. But in the House
he fared better, and that body are -likely to hold
stubbornly out against any proposition that does
net look to reassembling upon proclamation of
the presiding officer in each House, at least, twice
between now and next fall.
STANTON discovers that notwithstanding the
potency of the Tenure of Office Bill, that act docs
not prevent the Executive from removing a mem?
ber of the Cabinet, not appointed by him, and
heneo his alarm. While "the rump" stands by to
veto the nomination of his successor, the Secretary
feels tolerably secure, hut with that stay gone,
ivray goes the incumbent, and "none so poor as to
io him reverence."
THE RADICAL CRTJ8ADE IN TEE SOUTH.
You will have noted that a republican caucus
bas lately decided to assess the radical treasury,
the sum of ten thousand dollars for furnishing
campaign documents, to the benighted heathen of
the un eons troctcd States. It may bo equally cheer?
ing for your readers to learn that WILSON, the im?
maculate Senator from tho upper country of Mas?
sachusetts, is firm in the faith, that tho South, with
proper missionary service, upon tho part of zealous
rads, may be oonvcrted to the Congressional creed,
and become henceforth a field of swelling harvests
in the interest of "the great idea." To bo consis?
tent with this understanding of the situation,
WrsSQN.proposes 'to' organizo -upon the' adjeurc
caa oratora for the i^rB?alo?s work above indica?

' The Radicals are detcrramol that Maryland
shall he stirred to erich wrathful commotions of
the populace as will necessitate the intervention
of Uni ted States troops to preservo public order, ano
so give Congress the excuse-long coveted-of de-'
daring the commonwealth under martial rule, and
susceptible of .civil restoration only upon euch
terms as are indicated to your disloyal selves. To
do this, a few hundred Radical adventurers in the
State, mainly in Baltimore, propose to seize upon
the call for a pending Constitutional Convention
as a pretext for precipitating riot and general hub?
bub at every available point, until the interposi?
tion of the General Government carries the object
they desire, viz : The reduction of the State gov?
ernment, and transfer of its control to the military
district which it adjoins. Prominent in this move
is JNO. A. J. CREMWKI,T., Ex-Senator from the
State. But the sohome will fail signally in con-- :
suraationT^?iough it is probable that 'the Radic?is
may provoke the spilling of blood, and consider?
able popular commotion between now and the
next succeeding sixty days.
Gov. BOND, however, bas the conspiracy well is
hand, and instead of aftrightingly calling upon
Washington for bayonets to quell the tumult, will'
promtly call out a posse comUalus strong enough
to sweep the insurgents from the field, J t is in this
that the Bidicals have falsely reckoned, by reason
of too long a trust in forces foreign to the State.
Gov. BOND has weighed andU-?fted the conspiracy
from its inception, and will deal with it unsparing?
ly. It will be remembered that despite the extra?
ordinary endeavors used last fall to quash bis mu?
nicipal appointments of Police Commissioners of
Baltimore, and tho subsidization of certain officers
of the local courts to adverse and unwarrantable
ruling in the premises, the Governor came out of
the embroglio with flying oolors. The fight is to
be upon a larger scale this tune, but the result will
be the same beyond a peradventure. VIDEX.
SENATE.-Mr. Howard presented and asked for
the reference to the Committee on the Judie arv
of a statement of the Bank of Commerce of New
York to the effect that in December, I860, Mr.
Thomas, Senator elect from Maryland, had, as
Secietary of the Treasury, withdrawn ihe funds
which were to be applied to the payment of the in?
terest on United States bonds, ?or the purpose of
dishonoring the national credit.' A joint resolution
was passed transferring fifty thousand dollars
from the Freedmen's Bureau to be used by the
Commissioners of Agriculture to purchase seeds
for distribution in the Southern States. A bill was
passed providing for the removal and re-location
of certain Indian tribes.
A Bill was passed authorizing the settlement of
the accounts of line officers who were unable to
make their regular monthly reports on account of
being held as prisoners of war. The Bill supply?
ing deficiencies in the appropriation for the con?
tingent expenses of the Senate for the current fis?
cal year, as amended by the House, was taken up
and a number of amendments were adopted.
Among them was one appropriating fifty-one thou?
sand dollars for the expenses of indian tribes visit?
ing Washington. The bill was then passed.
The Committee on the Judiciary made a report
in relation to the testimony in relation to alleged
frauds in the New York Custom House, trans?
mitted by the House, as implicating Senators Doo?
little and Patterson. The report of the Commit?
tee fully exonerates those Senators. A minority
report was submitted, which also exonerates the
above named gentlemen, but gives a statement to
prove intentional fraud on tie part of Collector
Smythe. The report of the Committee was adopt?
ed. A' motion was then made to print the testi?
mony taken before the Judiciary: Committee.
Pending its consideration the Senate went into
executive session, and at its close adjourned.
HOUSE OF REPR?SENTATIVES.-The Senate bib to
charter the lincoln Monument Associa.ion of the
City of Washington was taken from the 8poakor'o
table and passed. The Speaker was authorized to
reappoint the select committee on Southern rail?
roads, with power to sit during the recess. The
Committee on the Judiciary reported back the
House bill relative to the claims of oortain North?
ern creditors of Southern banks and firms, and
recommended concurrence in the Senate amend?
ments. After considerable discussion the bul and
amendments were laid on the table.
Tho resolution of tho Senate in relation to ad?
journment was then taken np. An amendment
was offered by Mr. Sch on ck, of Ohio, providing for
an adjournment to-day until the first Wednesday
in June, and the first wednesday in September of
the present year, unless thu President of the
Senate and the Speaker of the House shall, by
feint proclamation, declaro that, ther? ia no occa?
sion for the meeting of Congress at the times
specified, He then nxado a long speech in favor of
impeaching the President and in relation to affairs
in Maryland. He said that - Congress should sot
adjourn until something was done in regard io
Maryland. If sot, he believed the scenes of blood?
shed in New Orleans would be repeated before the
noxt meeting of Congress.
A letter from Judge Bond to Col Forney, setting
forth the "difficulties surrounding Union mon in
Maryland," and asking the interference of Con?
gress, was read. After some additional discussion
the resolution was adopted-yeas 74, nays 61. The
House passed a joint resolution declaring the pro?
posed consolidation of the British North American
provinces to be contrary to the declared principles
of this Government, and also a resolution express?
ing the sympathies of this Government with the
people of Ireland and Candia in all the jost efforts
they are making to secure the independence of
their countries. ,
A resolution was adopted declaring it to bo the
sense of the House that Henry A. Smythe . should
be removed from the office pf Collecter of the
Port of New York, and that a copy of this resolu?
tion and of the testimony in the caso should be
sent to the President. A joint resolution was
passed ordering that the words 'Unmixed with

Revenue law in relation to threadinga, The Presi?
dent was requested to furnish to the House a list

[FROM OTJB BEOTJLAR CORRESPONDENT. J
NEW YORK, March 27.- Temperance is a good
thing, and politics mar be a good thing, too, at
times, and when it is of a proper brand; but it
were perhaps better not to mix them np together
in the same dish. It is related of a gentleman in
uneasy circumstances, who lived, or rather voge- |
tated, in a third-class boarding-hortso, that on
taking his scat at breakfast table, one morning,
and finding tho sugar dish half full of sugar and j
half full of flies, he remarked to the landlady that
ho was found of sugar, and had a greet respect,
not to say affection for flies, but that he preferred
having them served up in separate dishes, if con?
venient. Politicians and temperance men are be?
ginning to servo up the political sugar and tem?
perate flies in the same dish, as for example: At a
meeting at Plymouth Church, last night, where
HORACE GREELEY, using his eloquent tongue as on
all-potent spoon, stirred the two things together,
contending that the sale of alcohol should be regu?
lated i>nd restricted by legislative enactment, and ?
that the traffic in all intoxicating liquors should be i
likewise regulated by law. Now it may'be all very
well to endeavor by legitimate means to keep up
trmjempeianoe movement, but if dealers are to be
crohtbHed from selling whiskey because men who
purchase may BO use it, or rather so abuse it, as
to injure themselves, the Legislature may just as
well pass a law placing restrictions upon the sale
of cheese, because buyers may make it up into
Welsh-rarebits, and by eating too much thereof
might injure their digestive organs. What with"
universal suffrage, temperance, women's rights,
Fcnianism, and all sorts of isms, everything is I
getting to be mixed up in such a fly-and-sugar |
fashion that we, the independent boarders in Uncle
Sam's large hotel, will soon have to eschew each
and every dish, or chew thom altogether.
The committee appointed to examine into the
nffairs of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, the
directors of which have been charged with having
purposely flooded the market with stock, bringing
it down from two hundred and thirty to- one hun?
dred and twenty (par value one hundred), and
mining LEONASD W. JEROME and others, has been
hard at work, but has found out nothing so far.
JEROME himself is one of the directors, and it ia
theroforo hardly probable that there could have I
been anything wrong behind the curtain.
The criminal record in the courts here of late
shows au alarming increase in the number of per
sons arrested, charged with the horrible crime ot
infanticide and murder, by means of the attempted
production of abortion. Within the post week I
there have boen two instances in which the unfor- ?
t?nate victims of the last-named crime have gone
to their dread account. Tho horrible profession j
seems to pay largely here, (br many of its malo and j
femalD practitioners livo iu marble palaces that j
rent for. at least five or SA, Thousand .dollars p?rv

there is in this terrestial.globe. ;
Tho Herold predicted..yesterday again that we j
would have a f?ll'of rain or snow within three days
and a half; but one day'has elapsed, and behold. J
we are favored with- ataother snow storm. In to- |
morrow's issue' the weather-wise Herald will brag

of course, , a gain, bo; .Verified, for tho clerk of the
weather seeras_ to- SVVG snow on the brain, and |
people have given up all hope of having any
summer at all this year.
The extraordinary movement hero among all j
classes, and in all circles of society, in favor of
giving entertainments for the benefit of the des ti- :
tute people of the South, is daily gabling in popu?
larity. Theatrical people, operatio people, circus
peon?a, ..concert singers, and amateurs, are all
working bravely in the good cause, rani night after
night are concerts, theatrical entertainments and
tableaos given at Jerome's theatre by the first
ladies of the Fifth Avenue. In consideration of
this last mentioned circumstance, it becomes me
to explain how it is that the performance of the
Charleston amateurs for the benefit of the South?
ern Mutual Aid Association of your city has not
come off as I had announced that it would. The
ladies had consented to perform provided they
would not be compelled to appear in a public
theatre or hall-wherefore JEROME waa applied to
and promised the use of his theatre. It appears,
however, that ho has been compelled ti withdraw
his offer on thc ground that the Ladies' Southern j
Belief Association here, to whom he hod tendered
the uso of the building, will keep it for an inde?
finite period, during which time it can only be used
for entertainments given under their patronage
and for the benefit of their o vn Society. Whether |
or not the amateurs will moke arrangements to 1
to play there under such conditions I have not yet |
been able to learn.
A night or two ago a concert, lu aid of the cause
referred to above, was given in tho immense par- I
lors of the magnificent residence of M. STOUOHTON,
on Filth Avenue, and a large amount was realized.
The ladies who shone most conspicuously were the 1
Misses PARKER and BOCDBETMSK, of this city, Mrs.
WILSON, also of New York, and Miss BROOKS, of
Detroit. Critics say that Miss BROOKS Bings quite
as well and artistically aa the best professionals of
the Italian Opera.
The merchants of New York may deserve the re?
putation, they have acquired for shrewdness, yet
they are not so wise but that they can be taken in
now and then. A man who calls himself MARTES
(that which we call a roso by any other name would '
smell as sweet) has been carrying on,since Sep- i
te mb er 1858, the neatest kind of a swindling game,
and has come ont ahead to the tune of ten thou?
sand dollars. MARTIN'S stock in trade consisted in ]
a quantity of "cheek" and a subscription list pur?
porting to be for the benefit of the indigent mem
tots of the Insurance patrol. He called regularly |
once a year on the firm of H. B. CLAPETS & CO.,
and walked ofl as regularly with a ten dollar bill,
and so with other houses, and verily his business 1
did flourish and prosper. Yesterday, however, he j
was arrested, and now is MARTIN'S occupation
Gold quiet at 184}; business dull, and-only this
and nothing more. MOtJLTRTF..
DEATH OT Cox,. D. S. TATXOB.-We have to re?
cord this morning tb" ieath of another old citizen
of Pendleton. On I ...day last, CoL David 8. Tay?
lor departed this life, in the sixtieth year of his age,
after a brief illness, of apoplexy. His summons
was short, although premonitory symptoms of the
disease had been apparent for several years. CoL
Taylor had accumulated a large fortdne before the
war, and was regarded one of our wealthiest citi?
zens. Ho had recently accepted the appointment
of Assistant Assessor ot internai Bevenue, and
was at this place, in the active discharge of his
dr ties, but a few days previous to hie death.

The Nestor of German philologians and anti?
quarians, Prof. AUGUST RCLKH, in Berlin, has re?
signed his ornoo, which bo has hold for fifty-six

celebrated the 60th anniversary since his acces?

Tho Now York Times' London letter has the fol- |
lowing about Walt.. Whitman: "The Sunday ,
Times, an able conservative weokly, this week de
votes a column of genial and appreciative criticism
to Walt. Whitman. His 'Leaves of Grass' aro des?
tined, it thinks, to hold a prominent, position in
American literature, though its contents are such
tis can not possibly be a .?nut ted into family read- I
inf?.' Individually, people are strongly invited to
read it; but not in families. It is said to be na?
tional and oharscteristio in the fullest sens'-.
Ninoty-nine hundredths of American poetry might
havo been written bv Englishmen-not this. Ko?
roro the 'Leavos of Grass,' no serious American
work was wholly or in any wide sense national. It
is not only American, hut. Manhattaneso. O iv a
s tizen of New York couldjbavo produced it. Walt.
Whitman combines tho freedom and coarseness of I
Rabelais, the poetry of Osaian, and the philosophic
Savor of Emerson.' His writings aro full of ch ir
icter, and well worthy of contemplation. .This re- j

ject of Tennyson's 'Elaina' was recommended to
Liustav Dore, as a new and rich field for bis re?
markable powers of illustration, he inquired, 'Wu.
is this Tennyson ?' How a man who has hitherto
been unconscious of tho' existence of the Poel
Laureate could take np alrose French t, anslation

oina, catch the poetry evep under the baldness of
the prose, and produce kaoh faithful illustrations

grotesque, and portrayed with marvelous beauty
the ligttta and shadows of. tho poem. Hitherto his
sketches hov? been engraved on wood, but it . aa
necessary tho"l?natrati?fflB for 'Elaine' should be

But Dore asid, after he had studied the poem as.
translated, and had invest gated the life of Tenny- j
ion, "I will make these illustrations my monu?

THE IBTOPBESSIBLX: CONFLICT-On Sun lay after?
noon last our tillage was the scene of a fierce and
irrepressible conflict. The holy day makes the
deed epnoar more unholy ! Four or five soldiers
of tho'Federal garrison became "bifurcated with
hot shots from a bluo-ruin decanter," and very
wantonly disturbed the peace of a colored family.
These soldiers, we understand, are of Coltish ori?
gin. Their feet were at one time on their native
Bog. They have a national antipathy to
reptiles, and swear by St. Patrick. They
are devotedly attached to potatoes, and
have an abiding faith in good whiBkey.
By some means, as we have already insinuated,
tho "said Coltish gentlemen and a quantity of the
said good whiskey got inside of each other ; and
straightway the Celts were upon the war-path. As
they wondod their devious way along our Hain
s reet, they chanced to approach the residence of
an American citizen of African descent-Phil. Hill
-a good, honest, well-meaning fellow. Phil, was
not at home ; ho was "up town ;" perhaps ponder?
ing, in pensive mood, the long standing but now
thoroughly avenged wrongs of his nation. The
Celts entered his domicile forcibly, and spread
terror and dismay among tho females of his fami
lv. Mrs, Phil, crept forth and surreptitiously dis?
patched a messengor for Phil. The untutored Af
r can rushed to tho rescue, and, excited to frenzy
by tho baso aggressions of the Celts, pitched m
upon the latter wiih most valorous vim.
It being Sunday, Phil's friends were lying round
IOOBO. They flew to arms. More Celts arriv<d
upon the field of glory. 'Tis impossible to describe
the scene 1 A combat ensued that promised a very
sarious termination. The result had like to have
been tho same as in the fight of tho Kilkenny cats.
It seemed probable for some time that noth ng
would be left hut a fow mangled romains for the
coroner to hold an inquest upon.
But the Africans triumphed gloriously. One
Celt was cut; another was shot, though not killed;
whilo another was brought to the ground by an
unerring brick from the vengeful hands of Airs.
The commandant of tho post arrived up on tho
scene, and speedily dispersed the combatants.
Phil was arrested and carried to headquarters, but
upon representations of his good character being
made to tho commandant, and sufficient surety
given of his appearance when the matter was in?
vestigated^ he was released. As for the foemon
whom Phd thought worthy (?) of his steel, we
imagine they have had timo in the guardhouse to
get thoroughly sobor, and to reflect maturely upon
the nature and results of "irrepressible conflicts"
in general.-Edgefield Advertiser.

John S. Sn. y ly, Esq., an honorable, amiable and
generous citizen of that District, well known to
