The New Orleans Crescent say? : "If tho United
States Congress tRke heed of the popular voice in
time, wo may bo eavod from much suffering. Act?
ing on this belief, a number of gentlemen of both
sections have agreed to suggest tho presentation
of monster memorials to Congress and tho Presi?

immediately conformed to the actual needs of the
situation, and to the expressed demands of public
"Below will be found this memorial which has
been prepared, and is recommended to tho South?
ern people with this view. VTc would request
our readers to bestow their earnest Attention upon
it. We behove that they will agree with us in the
conclusion that this movement, if it becomes
geneial, may do much e,ood. Even if Congress
refuses to modify its policy, the fact of refusal, iu
the fice of an overwhelming expression of opi?
nion from both sections of the country, will place
it still more decidedly in tho wrong and strengthen
the bauds of that great party which is to be
charged with the final solution and settlement of
these momentous u.iiestions|:''
To his Excellency the President and the Senators
and Representatives of the United States Con?
The undersigned, citizens of the State of Lou?
isiana, respecttully represent that the political de?
velopments of tho" past few months have demon?
strated tho fact that thc Reconstruction acts cf
Congress will, if persisted in, produce a conflict of
races which will result in tho desolation of tho
country, aud the serious if not irreparable injury
of both races in the Southern States.
That the negroes of this State aro organized ?uto
secret bands termed "Loyal Leagues," sworn and
combined against their former owners and citizens
of the State, in order to obtain control of the gov?
That this credulous race bare beeu deluded by
designing men luto the belief that tho prop
erty of the white citizens of the State will, bo divid?
ed among them.
That, under these demoralizing influences they
are daily refusing to fulfil tboir contracts, or labor
for the support of themselves or their families.
That, in consequence of this demoralization,
planting in thin Stato has resulted in the ruinous
failure of a large majority of our planters, and, of
course, in the necessity Of its abandonment.
That, before the close of thc present year, the
negroes, with but few ex?eption?, will have con?
sumed or wasted their wuges, or share of the crop,
and bo destitute of the means of subsistence.
That the white race will be compelled to limit
their planting to the labor of their own families,
while the negroes will not have the moans, if they
had the capacity, to plant on their own account.
Under these circumstances, famine, with all ita
attendant tnrrors, must soon come upon this im?
In view ol these impending calamities, the un?
dersigned would earnestly appeal to the President
and Congress to give prompt attention to this vi?
tally important matter, and provide immediately
such remedy as in their wisdom oan be devised, to
avert the nun which, unless arrested, must speed?
ily come upon us.

GRESS-RAVIVAI. OF THE NEGRO SUFFRAGE QUES?
TION- FCBOBASE OF THE DANISH WEST INDIES
SPANISH ALARM-GENERAL SHERMAN AND INDIAN
Tho Washington correspondent ol'the Baltimore
Sun writing on tho 8th instant says :
Since thc vote on impeachment :vas taken yester?
day thc President has been visited by a number
of his friends, who calJcd to concrutulato him
upon thc termination ot the effort to oust him
from the executive chair. Among those who called
to-night were several members of tho Cabinet and
members of Congress.
Tho Democratic members talk of calling in a
hedy to express their sympathies. The defeat of
the impeachers has produced a feeling of relief
and gratification among all classes, save those who
have been actively prosecuting the impeachment
scheme. This irritating subject out of the way,
members of both parties come together io
ccusidcr the financial problem and give it their
Developments within thc past few days show
that there is a diversity of opinion on financial
measures, alike among Republicans and Democrats
and whatever of discussion arni action may be had
thereon will not likely partake of a partisan char?
The only legislation now threatened of great na?
tional importance upon which sharp party line*
will probably be drawn is the negro suffrage* ques?
tion, which is to be revived in the bill to enforce
negro suffrage alike in all the States, and on this
lhere will bo division amener the Republican mem?
bers. The opponents of that measure, among
whom may be mentioned Senator Trumbull, ap?
pear to be in the majority.
Thc treaty for the purchase of St. Thomas and
St. John's islands may probably not be taken up
for consideration in the Senate until next week.
Meantime recommendations for tho purchase from
representative commercial men aro coming in,
and Senators indicate a purpose to delay action in
the Senate until further indications of approval
come from influential quarters.
Information received here yesterday from tho
Government of Spain discloses anxiety about the
purposes of the United States Government, a re?
port having reached the Spanish authorities to
the effect that it is the intention of tho adminis?
tration to get possession of Porto Rico and four or
five islands, aud even Cuba. It is understood that
Mr. Seward's explanation was such as to quiet the
alarm of the Spanish Government.
General Shorman, who arrived here yesterday,
came especially upon business connected with tho
Indian commissioners, and has already commenc?
ed the preparation of his report of the proceed?
ings of that commission. What has transpired
already confirms the previous statement of your
correspondent as to the purpose of General Sher?
man's return, and tho same circumstances show
how ridiculous aud unfounded were the sensation

ral Shorman was to return here in November last
to take part in thal great bugaboo, tho Presiden?
tial coup dr dat.
DEFEAT OF TUE IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTIONS IN THE
Tli? Washington correspondent of thc New York
Herald of Sunday writes:
..Impeachment is dead. The impeachment whip
will no longer he held in terrorem over the Presi?
dent. The sudden demise of this great movement
has created as deep a sonsation as anything that
has occurred since tho events of tho memorable
month of April. 18G?. 'I he hotels and all other public
places of resort for political gossip are crowded
with earnest seekers after nows, commenting upon
tho circumstances connected with the close of the
famous Radical plot, and exchanging views as to
the probable results. The President is said also
to be in high good humor over the even's of the
day, and is being congratulated to-night by his
friends on the harmless issue of the crusade
The humiliating culmination of tho impeach?
ment question in the House to-day termina toa this
grand political farce, and there is uo mistaking
thc relief indulged iu oven by those who have uni?
formly been the support? rs of the movement. In
January last, as is knowr, the notorious Ashley in?
flicted this calamitous measure upon his party by
moving the impeachment of the President. Since
that time, at different periods, the labors of the
Judiciary Committee have been unceasing, accu?
mulating a mass of barren testimony, and closing
tho zealous efforts of nearly one year in an utter
failure to substantiate a singlo causo for impeach?
ment, and stamping the entiro proceeding as an
unparalleled' act of party animosity. Tho action
of the House to-day was a fitting indication of the
sentiments of reasonable minds upon thc injus?
tice of the whole movement. The efforts ol tho
impeachers yesterday to obstruct thc passage of
Mr. Wilson's motion to lay the resolution of tho
majority on the table demonstrated tho same
spirit which directed thc whole course of the ad?
vocates of the measure, and their utter failure to
make a decent show of strength must necessarily
cause a serious reaction in the popular miud.
Upou thc a>sembl.ng of the House to-dav un
effort was made to resume tho fillibustoring of
yesterday. Mr. Logan, who was the prime mover
of the Radical manouvres, expressed his determi?
nation to make a speech if he were obliged to koop
up thc contest for a month. Seeing tho impossi?
bility of outwitting the parliamentary tactics of
Mr. "Wilson, a strong pressure was brought to
bear upon the latter to withdraw his motion and
to allow a vote upon tho main question, declaring
that no opposition would be made. To this Mr.
Wilson assented, and withdrew his motion; bnt he
stole a march upon his opponents by calling the
previous question. Thc skilful manner in which
this turn in the situation of a?airs was made,
again defeated tho designs of the impeachers, and
tho main question-the majority roeolution of
the Judiciary Committee- waa placed fairly before
the House." Various plans were resorted to to
throw Mr. Wilson ott' his guard and indue 3 him to
suspend his cai! of the provious question, but
without avail. Thus cornered, the impeachers
had no alternativo but quiotly to submit and
answer to their names as tho roll was called. At
this moment the confusion which hitherto pre?
vailed during tho contest of thc advocates and op?
ponents of impeachment was brought to a sudden
termination. The galleries, which were crowdod
with an attcntivo audience, were equally silent,
and manifested tho deepest interest in those clos?
ing scenes. The Speaker, before thc roll was
called, cautioned the galleries against any demon?
stration of approval or the reverse. Tho roll was
called, and 57 naya against 108 yeas put cu em?
phatic negative upon tue resolution.
As the farcu is ended divers speculations aro
going tho rounds us to the effect ol' the failure of
the Radicals to make even a respectable show ot
justice in their proceedings, ll pon the impeach?
ment of thu Pres'dent, they evidently based a
largo share of their political capital for tho ousu
?ng Presidential campaign. Their failure is looked
upon as a great obstado in tho way of now making
a strong case beforo tho country. The charges
Bpread broadcast over tho country against the
Prc'Bider.t, during tho late elections, can no longer
be used, as the failure to impeach him, it is said,
will uow tie used by the opposion aB an endorse?
ment of his conduct. The Conservatives are more
jubilant than ever. Thc encouragements afforded
bv the recent elections have been forgotten in the
defeat of the Radicals in their pel game of as?
suming control of the executive power und pa?
THE FINANCIAL QUESTION.
The House Committee on Ranking and Curren?
cy expect to bu in a positim soon to report their
views to Congress. The minority will tako strong
grounds against the contraction of the currency
and against th? resumption of specie payments
through any species of artificial legislation. Whilo
they believe that no definite time can he s it apart
for a return to specie currency without disturbing
the commorjial interests of Ino country, they are
satisfied to hold the opinion that the la ws which
regulate the operations of trade, commerce and
production will inevitably and in proper season in?
duce the resumption of a coinage circulation. They
propose to use no mincing language in denounc?
ing the prostitution of the great financial interests
of the nation to the advancement of party meas?
ures, and, in alluding to the condition of tho South,
they intend to show, in a statesmanlike and con?
servative spirit, how fearfully detrimental to tho
material prosperity of thu whole country past Con?
gressional legislation hus proved itself.
There is a very general confidence expressed
that General Grunt will eventually lean to the Re?
publicans, in which case tho Johnsonian party wil
adopt the policy of pitting epaulettes against epaul?
ettes, and from the wholo range of Conservative
anny officers, from Sherman to Rousseau, any one
maybe selected who is deemed the mos; available
to lend it forlorn hope.
PAYMENT OF rm; INTEREST os TUE STATE DEBT
OK VIRGINIA, lt lias already Itecn stated that lite
January interest >u the State debt of Virginia
would be paid. In confirmation of tiii.- statement
tho Richmond Dispatch says:
General Schofield has instructed tito Auditor of

cense taxes now in loree. The Commissioners'
books will be forwarded to them early in thc en?

SOLOMON'S TEMPLE STITT. ONE HUNDRED ANO
FIFTY FEET HIGH.-Lieutenant-Warren, un officer
nf the Royal Engineers, has, tor a long time past,
been engaged, at the expense of an English soci
lioty, in malting extensive explorations on the site
>f the Temple of Solomon, in Jerusalem, and has
tlready made some startling discoveries. He has,
it is stated, established by actual demonstration
that the South wall ot the* sacred enclosure which
contained tho Temple, is buried for more than
lialf its depth beneath un accumulation of ruL
bi8h-probably the ruins of ihe successive build?
ings which once crowned it-and that if bared to

Thc nieu who caat their votes in favor ol' the
impeachment of the President, are destined, save
the Wilmington Journal, to become as famous in

phos, and for no better or more noble deed. The
Radical strength in the House is one hundred and
forty-five. Of the absentees, but three took occa?
sion to make known the fact of their favoring the

COLORED DELEGATES IN THE VIROINIA CONVEN?
TION.--The Richmond (Va.) Dispatch atalca that
Mr. Lewis Lindaay, one ol' the colored delegates
from Richmond to the Reconstruction Convention,
now sitting in the cnpitol of Virginia, having been
unable to preserve his aobriety under the exhilara?
ting influences ol' membership of the Convention
and six dollars a day, got into a difficulty on
Wednesday morning with one of his fellow-citizens,
who kept a saloon, on the subject of his political
status, but was sufficiently cooled down by the
time the Convention met, at twelve o'clock, lo par?
ticipate in the proceedings of that body, where he
made thc following speech on the proposition to
appoint a stenographer to report tho proceedings :
"Mis-far Prcsi-rfwir, / hope in dis late hour ob
de struggle that old Virginia have been imperilled
that no free-thinkin' man can sup-pose fur a mo
moot dat wo desires to miariperaint de idee dat
we eau t qualify de ability of do stcrnorgerphy for
dis Convention. I hope evy good-thinkin'ge:itlc
man will obsarve de necessity of bavin' a stenc
gaphy, an' dat dey will bo willing', in do desire to
gain "de ability of" de commonwealth of For ginny,
to sec dat de gentleman is justly des?ree. I hope,
sir, dat evy genterman wiil no~f_8co de necessity of
bavin' di* Btonogerphy, ao dat we can den be able
to undors'und de principles of dur proposition."
["The above is a oerbatlim report."
Mr. Lindsay's outburst was not without its ef?
fect, for it is said to have been followed by a cau?
cus of the Radical members of the Convention, at
which it waa kindly explained to t he colored dele?
gates that they had much to learn of the proceed?
ings of legislative bodiea, and that it would, there?
fore, be eminently proper for them to keep quiet
until they should obtain tho necessary information.
In view of the colored delegates in the Convention
being thus put into loading strings, the inquiry ia
pertinently propounded by the Dispatch, "what did
radicalism bend them there for?"
THE Co TON TAX.-The House bill exemptiug
ill cotton grown after thia year from taxation is
now under consideration by tho 8enatoFinau.ce
Committee. Tho Washington Expresa savH :
Two or threo members, at least, aro strongly
apposed to it, and wc learn that Senator Morrill,
af Vermont, will mako an elaborate argument
igainst the bill when it comes belore the Senate.
The Washington correspondent of tho New York
Herald writes :
There ia considerable difi?renos <>f opinion
among tho Republicana upon the question of re?
pealing tho cotton tax. Simple as it appears, and
apparently di vested of the least claim to bo con?
sidered ? party question, it lias nevertheless
assumed such a shape when being Altered through
the minds of some of tlio more extreme Radicals.
Tho House bill exempting all cotton grown after
this year looks a liberal boon enough on the face
of it to tho suffering South, but, aa tho Conserva?
tives hero shrewdly suggest, tho bait can easily bo
withdrawn titter thu Presidential election aud tho
Bcrow turned on again. Such miy bo tho extreme
Radical intention, but tho reflecting portion of
Congress sincerely deairo to relievo the Southern
peoplu of this impost, willoh, judging by tho large
number of petitions daily presented in buth Houses
praying for ita withdrawal, must be felt as a severo
barden. Senator Morrill, of Vermont, is reported
to be preparing an elab?ralo argument against thc
bill when it conies before the Senate for considera?
Nor TUE THIN? KOK CONGBESSHKK.-Tho New
York Sun lias a sensible, article in relation to those
Congressmen who are perambulating the Southern
States with a view to manufacture political capital
for the next Presidential election. The editor
"Members of Congress, who are elected to re?
present tho people, might find better business
than that of employing stump speakers to rant
through thc South, inflaming tho pass-ions and
prejudices of the freedmen, and keeping alive the
enmity between thc whites and blacks, ll it were
not for such imported agitators in the South, tho
political excitement there would soon dio ont, and
both whites and blacks would go to work and en?
deavor to repair tue loss sustained by tho war.
Self-interest demands tint the Southern whites
shall treat. Hie negroes well, nnd that thc latter
shall resume their old industrial pursuits. They
would fraternize, harmonize, and forget the past",
if thero were no extr nicolis influencera to hinder
mutual concessions. But so long as agitators are
lured to go among the negroes to fill their heads
with stories about their wrongs, and to arrav them
in social and political hostility to the whites, so
long will thc South remain prostrate. Every man
of sense knows that peace, tranquility and freedom
from excitement are now thc great needs ol' thc
Smith, and members of Congress should be the last
persons to fan the flame of discord and to prevent
thu roturo of harmony between the freedmen and

Tbo dreary chill upon the air,

That death was on tho twilight dew,
Or on some gentler heart wo knew.
'Twas not tho hush of tho curtained bed,
Nor usual parting of tho thread,
When love might closo the rayless eve
And Friendship sit in silence by;
But just af if. by sudden stroke.
The golden bowl we loved had broke.
And so lt was, for some wise end.
The Lord had called the truest friend
My trust had known; companion tried.
One instant lived, another died.
His lamp was trimmed-ho walked upright,
Beneath it? soft and steady light;

. PHILADELPHIA UNIVERSITY
MEDICINE AND ?SURGERY.
THE PHILADELPHIA UNIVERSITY QF MEDICINE
AND SURGERY was organized in 1848. Chartered
by the Legislature, February 2G, 1853. Nara c changed
by ti legislativo enactment to the Eclectic ?V. ed ?cal Col?
lege, ?f Philadelphia, in 1800. In 1863 it purchased the
Pennsylvania Medical college, es.shushed in 1342, and
the Philadelphia Medical College, which had previously
been merged Into the Pennsylvania Medical < 'ollege. Cn
186-1 it purchased the Penn Medical University. Tho
Trustees of Ute separate schools united, petitioned and
obtained a special Act of thc Lepis.ature, consolidating ?
these institutions and changing their munee to that of the
Philadelphia University of Medicine and Surgery,
March 15,186.r>. All these various Acts aro publi. hed in
the statutes of Pennsylvania. Tho cost of the I utlding I
and museum was over one hundred thousand dollars. It
will bo observed that the University, as now organirad, is
the legal representative of the four Medical Colleges that
it has absorbed. It is a liberal school of medicino, con?
fined to no dogma, nor attached io any medical cliques,
but embraces in its teaching everything ol value to the
Sessions.-It has two lilli sessions each year, commenc?
ing on tho 1st of October, and continuing until the 1st of
January, as its first session, and from tho 1st of January
to the 1st ol April, as its second; the two constituting ono
tull couran of lectures. It baa also a summer session,
commencing thc 1st April and continuing until August,
for thc preparatory branches, euch os Latin, Greek,
Mathematics, Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Anatoniy
Tickets.-Tickets to tho full rourse of lectures $120, or
$60 for each session. For the summer or preparatory
course $25. Graudatuag tee $30. To aid yonng men of
moderate means, the University has issued five hundred
scholarships, which are sold to first-course ?tadenta lor
$75. and to second-course student? nd cl?.?ymen for
$60, each constituting the holder a L1 . rr ruber, with the
perpetual privileges of tho lectures, and all the teachings
of tho school. The only additional lees are a j early dis?
secting and matriculating ticket, each of which is $5.
The Advantages of Scholarships.-The student holding a
scholarship can enter thc College at any time during the
year, attend as long as he chooses, and re-enter the inst!
ration as frequently as desired.
It requires no previous reading or study to enter the
University on scholarships, hence, all private tuition foes
Students, by balding e ... ' jrships, can prosecute other
business a part of the tim
Thc candidate for graduation eau present himself at
any rime, and receive his degree as soon as qualified.
In case a stu tent should hold scholarship and not be
able lo attend lectures, it can bi transferred to another,
thus preventing any loss.
Parents, guardians or friends of students wishing to
pur.-haso scholarship for them a year or more before
their attendance at the University, can secure them by
advancing one-half thc price and paying the balance
when the student enters. Physicians and benevolent
men can bestow groat benefit upon poor young men by
presenting them a scholarship, and thus enabling them
to ootain an honorable profession.
The Faculty embraces seventeen eminent physicians
and surgeons. The University has associated with it a
large hospital clinic, whoto every form of medical and
surgical disease is operated on and treated in the pres?
ence of the class.
COLLEGE BUILD INO.-The College building, located In
Ninth street, south of Walnut, ls the finest in the city.
Its front Ls collegiate gothic, and is adorned with em
battlements and embrasures, presenting a novel, bold,
and beautiful appearance. Thc facade is of brown stone,
ornamented by two towers, rising to the elevation ol
eighty feet, and crowned with an ombattled parapet
Tho building contains botween fifty and sixty rooms, all
supplied with water, gas, and every other convenience
that modern improvement can contribute to facilitate
medical instruction. Only live hundred scholarships
will be issued, and as two hundred and lilly are now
sold, those who wish to secure one should do so at once.
Money can be remitted by express, or a draft or checa
scut on any National Hank in thc United States, when
the scholarship will be returned by mail, signed by the
President of the board of Trustees, JOSEPH S. FISHER,
Esq., and tho Dean ot the Faculty, W. PAINE, M. D.
