SUSPENSION OF THE PRESIDENT FBKDOUJ IMPE?
MEN I-OPINION OF HON. KEVERD? JOHNSON
DISABILITY-TH h STJ?YENS PROPOSITION DEM
Hon. Reverdy Johnson lias prepared an apr?
dix lo his last pamplct on "Thc Dangerous Coi
tion of tho Country," which conclusively ans?
the Stevens proposition thar tho President cati
suspended during the pendency of itnpeachmt
Senator Johnson, in that appendix says :
'.'Since the Ant edition of this pamphlet,
writtr has been informed that some of tho mt
bera of Congress profess to bo' ot thc opinion t
that body can, by statute, declare that randene*
an impeachment of tho President shall conant
a disability, on his part, to perform tho functii
of his office.
"It is supposed tiiat by snch legislation he n
be brought within thc meaning of tho clause
tho first section of th? second article of tho Ci
stitntion which provides for lue removal i
amongst other causes, bia 'inability' to diadiai
the powers and duties thereof.
"The answers to the proposition are several a
"1. The clause does not contemplate a mi
suspension or temporary removal. Thc remo
provided for in such case is the same as thatwhi
is to result from a conviction upon impeachmoi
orirom death, or resignation, which, of course,
not a temporary but a permanent one. Tho i
mo val on condition is, also, not only poi ni .mei
bul is followod by tho further judgment of d
qualification to hold any other office under t
"lt will hardlv bc maintained that Congress ca
by statute, eieatua greater punishment than tb
or make it less. Tho subject was evidently n
designed to be submitted to thc discretion of Co
gress. This heine; so, for the same reason Co
cress is not entrusted with tho power to deda
any other judgment tn tho case ol' removal fro
'inability,' than the ono which is to enano the ha
Coning of either of the other events mentioued
"2. The 'inability' mentioned is such au inabi
ty as renders tho Proaidont permanent ly incap
ble of discharging his duties. Any other interpr
tation would give to Congress tho authority
provide that temporary absence from tho seat
government, or temporary Hicknesa, or any otb
event should constitute au 'inability.' Tbcro i
also, no judicial judgment to be pronounced
such acose. Thu removal, as in the case of deaf
or resignation, is to take place tho moment tl
contingency happens, and the duties Of thc oftk
instantly devolve upon tho vice-President.
"3. As the judgment, on impeachment, inflic
no personal punishment, as the trial may po on i
well without as with tho presence in the -ouate
the Preside it, and as that body his no authorit
to compel bia attendance, it is obvious that he
just as capable during the trial to perform tho di
ties of his office, aa ho is before or after a jud)
ment of a .quittai. Under t ti o power to pass a
laws necessary and proper to execute tho po wei
granted, no such authority as the one in questie
belongs to Congress, no legislation being Decessai
to effect the object of tho claire-- that King ai
couipliehed the moment tho event occura of a
'inability,' within the constitutional muauing <
THE FINANCIAL O.UE8TION IS CONGRESS.
We take tho following from the Washington coi
respondent of the New York Horald :
The financial question will no doubt, be th
leading one in the forthcoming deliberation t
Congress, and one upon which more diversity c
sentiment will bo expressed among members r
Ino Radical party than thc public IH prepared t
expect. Several distinguished Senators in comer
sation this evening evinced a wavering dispositioi
on the score of maintaining views with which the,
have beon hithorto iden.iUod in favor of paying th
principal and interest of the national debt exclu
.?vely in coin. It ia reported that there are mor
mcmbTs ot the S nate than have publicly express
od themselves in favor ol tho policy enunciate*,
by Bon. Butler. Soor?taxy UoCullooh's plan u
contraction is opposed by ono prominent Senator
and bi? policy of ttccumul?>-':iig gold in the Trcasu
ry in denouhcuu by anothnr.' There io mud
stress laid on tho construction of tho lav,' rclafir.:
to the payment ot the principal of tho five
twontiea, and when tho question comes u*
for discussion it may bo antler Kited, fron
the present temper iii which tho matter ia dis

to sumo of tho Senators ft project mat BOPd excite
no apprehension, tho argument bomg that tuen

tho preaont syatoui of contraction. Members in?

their particular views of tho auVevbccrbins topic,
Ben. Wade, U6 he walka thoughtfully and niwiu,
from bia hotel to tho Capitol, occupiea his mind
with the monetary problem to tho exclusion ol
almost every other. He belie voe Ibo legitimate
payment ol tho five-twenties should be STewpaclts.
and to an impressive explanation of this position
he is now developing his meditations.
THE PROPOSED DIVISION OF TEXAS.
Thad. Stevens' Texas Bill will bo in keeping
with his notions of thc power* of Congress, Jle
lirat proposes that the present State of Texas shall
bc divided into three or four States. He ia at pre?
sent deeply interested in studying up the geogra?
phy of that remote region, in view of announcing
what shall bo the boundaries of th< se pew States.
For their government ho designs that Congress
shall preparo their constitutions, which will be in
accordance with the Radical views of a Republican
lorm. He is extremely anxious that the matter
be taken up at once, as he is desirous that the
constitutions be submitted to tho people within
thc Umita of each of tho new Statea. and that they
may determine whether they will accept them or
not. Mr. Stevens manifests some solicitude in
hurrying up this measure, and if thc popular voice
be favorable tn the new rigivi" proposed, bc is in
favor of immediate admission. His anxiety acema
to be based upon an accession ol strength to thu
the Radical cause- lo bu Ilma gained. He
arpues thai during tho wara largeiucreaseol
the negro population ol the present .Statu of Texas
baa taken place. If thia bo the fact tho creating
of three or four new States through the instru?
mentality of the negro voto will materially
atrengtheu the power of the Radicals, aa it ia na?
turally expected that thc representation in Con?
gress from these summarily created States will bc
up to the extreme point of Radicalism. .\ r. Ste?
vens has not yet written thc bill to affect these
ends, but proposes to take hold of it as soon as
the impeachment pressure has somewhat abated.
Mi*. Stevens sa\s he will not attempt to ?mike an\
speeches; but it is quite evident ho winnot hi
wanting in supplying abundant material to feed
the volubility of the House, lb- alsottalks ol' ma?
iring a raid on the Senate before long. He consi?
ders their expenses out of all proportion, and hints
that home action should be taken in thc matter.
THE PRESIDENT AND TUE CONSERVATIVES.
The correspondent of tho Neu York Sunday
News says :
The President to-day declared to prominent D??
mocratie leaders that as soon as his message i
aent t<. Congress, he will be m a .situation to mee!
the wishes of Conservatives, and will then act
promptly. No one here, however, believes Mr.
Johnson w ill act unless forced to tho wall bv im?
peachment, when he may (urn upon los assailants.
Many Democrats express tho wish that hu may be
impeached, hoping thal it may arouse him to" ac?
TUE PASE OF SCURATT.
I learn, on authority believed to bc wholly trust?
worthy, that the Attorney-General has expressed
the opinion that Stirrat! cannot be legally tried a
second time for complicity in tho assassination of
Lincoln, as the Constitution expressiv declares
that DO ?nan shall bo twice put io jeopardy for the
same offence. A new indictment may iiossiblybo
drawn up against the prison:'! , out ?t'is inore like?

THE POSTAI. TELEGRAPH PROJECT,
It ia announced here that tho Western Union
Telegraph Company will propose to sell the Gov?
ernment a part of iheir hues and wires for foetal
purposes, but members of Congress doubt tile
authority of Congress to make suba purchase
and if anything be done looking to the adoption ot
a telegraphic postal Bystem, it is believed its ex?
tent will be only the declaration of routes to be let
out by coutracts, alter the manner of post roads
TOE PRESIDENT'^ RESOLVE.
An1 Hier correspondent .-ays
The report that tho House Judiciary Committee
would report iu favor of impeaching the h-esiilent
has created intense excitement in official and poli
tical circles here. A friend communicated tho
fact to President Johnson last evening, who re?
marked in reply: "Coneress has a cons.titu;ionaI
ri"ht to impeach, but 1 am prepared to do my
dutv." The simple impoa hment ia not regarded
of much consequence, b it if that is oarrted there
mav be an attempt to suspend the President dor?
mir trial. Should snch a suspension be attempted
it will no doubt be resisted by force, and tho cou
s?quence cannot be fore'-old,

The Election in Florida.
A CUniOOS RESULT- SLA SK VOTING-TflE WHITE
REPUBLICANS AS WELL AS TUE CONSERVATIVES
ABSTAIN FROM VOTTNQ.
An evidently well posted correspondent of thc
Savannah Bepublican (a moderate Benubl;pan p?
pr.r) writes from Jaukeonnlle, Florida, under dato
of the 23d inst :
I bavo not yet received tho complete returns of
(be election in Florida, bat according to our ad?
vices ian night, tho result of tho voting in several
of tho countioa not included in our report yester?
day, and which have siuco been heard from, is
very disproportionate to the registration. Tho
additional returns, however, which are nearlv all
sent in, confirm our statement of about four hun?
dred Majority for a Convention. In Hamilton
Count v. Middle Florida, there were nearly eight
hundred registered, and but little 07er two hun?
dred votes were cast. Out of four hundred and
two whites registered in that county but ooo vote
was polled, both tho white members of the Board
of Registration rofuaing to vote, and more than
two huudred original Union mon-Southom hj-_
alwta and avowed Republicans-declining to par?
ticipate in the election. In St. John's count} but
(ir.e hundred and thirty-seven out of four hundred
and thirty registered votes were polled, and of three
hundred and eleveu whitty only thirty voted. In
Volusia couuty, out of ono hundred and fifty reg?
istered voters" but twenty-one votes were polled
duriqt< three days' election. Many of the registers
themselves either neglected or refused to vote.
If we aro correctly informed, and we believe we
aro, thero was not moro than nine hundrod white
votos cast in tho State, out of over oleven thou?
sand whitea registered.
J ho result of tho election in Florida ia marked
and significant in the extreme. It is a clear indi?
cation of tho actual drift Df tho public mind, even
in that State which has boen relatively undisturd
ed by social outrages and exitements, and whero
the lino of detnurcation between the races ha.-i
been less visible and not so rigidly insisted upon.
The white Bepublicans in that State number about
two thousand, including the native Union element,
loral refugees, or Northern emigrants, and not
oiie-half of them have votsd at this election.
Thst thero is a strong loyal, conservative cle?
ment, a large Union Bopublicaii party of tho more
moderate sort, iu Florida, thc result of ihe elec?
tion clearly and forcibly exhibits. The extreme
Badical wing is composed of four white mon, and
il is said about one-half ol' the blacks. Tho Bil?
lings Badical elocted but thirteen clelogatcs to the
Convention, the Btrairrlit Kepublicaiis thirty-one,
and Conservatives t,vo.

WILLIAM E. rERRYCLEAR was a citizen of Port
Royal Island, S. C., all his lifetime; he died in Oranoe
burg District, October 28th, 1867; aged 74 years, 7 months
and 24 day H.
In the hfe of the deceased there was sq much love and
devotion to his family, so much that ?as noble and
honorable in his charrwter as a citizen, so much consid?
eration and regard for the happiness of his noighbors
servants and all who came in contact with him that
worn? can sea-eely do justice to hi? estimable name
Ile led the infant feet of his chillren to tho House of
God. He never permitted them to stay away from tri?
fling canses, and set tho good example of always coin?
himself when his health permitted.
As a citizen, he waa never found wanting, but always
merited the "well done" by those who contided in him.
Da 1812, when our Uberties were threatened by a foreign
power, he took up arms in defence of his country, and
stood by her flsg until peace was restored. He continued
j jo pursue his avocation as a planter on Port Royal Island
I from that time until 1861, when that very coun.ry for
f which he fought deprived him ol ali his property, and
. compelled him, with his (anally, to seek refuge among
grangers in a strange land to the day of his death.
He telt that there was nothing in himself to recom?
mend him to the favor of God, but looked to the atoning
merits of his Saviour as his only hope of salvation. And
his children do not mourn as those who have no hope,
but believe he has entered upon that rest, whero no bat?
tle sound, no pri7a,tian?,'nor rude alarms, shall break
the long repose: ' j
