THE NEW IMPEACHMENT SCHEME.
WASHINGTON, February 12_The interest in
the new impeachment movement continues
unabated, but there is less excitement to-day
on the subject than there was yesterday and
day before. There is not so much mystery
either involved in the acts and purposes of the
parties who prosecute the scheme. Mr. Bing?
ham, who was announced as being committed
and outspoken for immediate impeachment,
does not appear to have said or done anything
to warrant so positive a statement of his posi?
tion. Upon inquiry it is found that the so
called "stormy discussion" of tho committee
last week upon the Johnson-Grant correspond?
ence was comparatively mild and dispassion?
ate; and it ib suggested that there was in the
consideration of this correspondence by tho
. committee among the extremo Radicals se
cretly as much a desire to show Grant
up in an unfavorable light as to hunt up
grounds for impeaching/the President. "Hav
ing Grant already committed to Badicalism,
the prestige of his name is secured to the Ba
dical party, and they can now afford to nomi
nate some one else of their original f avon ties
The fury against Mr. Johnson has to some ex
tent moderated. On Monday the sentiments
of the extremists was, "Impeachment at all
hazards." To-day the same party modify by
saying, "We will impeach Johnsc i if we find
he has violated any law." Sober, reflective
Republicans are undisturbed, and say confi?
dently that, in spite of all the existing clamor,
there will be no impeachment merely for what
bas, up to this time, transpir ?d; that the plan
of deposition or suspension of the President
immediately upon the adoption of articles of
impeachment cannot be carried by a two
thirds vote in the Senate, nor can the bill bc
passed in that body under two months, on ac?
count of latitude allowed in debate, so that
the scheme of the impeachers moBt fail, since,
in order to perfect their plan, an immediate re?
moval or suspension of Mr. Johnson must take

The War Department.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Herald, under date of the 8th inst., writes
as follows :
Tho excitement occasioned by tho disclosure
of thc serious disagreement between tho
President aud the General-in-Chief seems tobe
on the incroase if anything. No other subject
is talked of in public and private circles. The
Radicals, of course, applaud the conduct of
Geueral Grant, and affect to view tho whole
matter as an attempt on the part of the Presi?
dent to inveigle Grant into committing himself
iu some way in opposition to tho will of Con?
gress, and faning in that, has endeavored to
injure Grant's reputation.
A careful ^loaning of facts from all reliable
sources, since the publication of the correspon?
dence, shows that tho initiation of the corres?
pondence by General Grunt was but a part of a
deep laid Bcuomo, arranged by tho Radical fa?
miliars of the War Department for a twofold
purpose. First, to a fiord General Grant au
opportunity of "speaking out," that the Radical
party might have such a revelation of Grant's
political views as would satisfy tho demands
ot mun like Wado, Stunner, Ste veis and
Bout ell, and8ccure their heal ty co-operation
towprdB Grant's nomination for the Presidency.
Second, to beguile tho Presidout into com?
mitting to writing something that won d serve
as sufficient protext on which to baso articles
of impeachment. In both of these objects the
Radicals appear to think they have been suc?
cessful. Grant has taken a position wholly iu
accord with the Radical party, and tho ques?
tion of impeachment is agaifl in motion. The
endorsement of the President on the back ot
Grant's letter, requesting written ordere not to
obey Stanton as Secretary of War, is regarded
by them as a misdemeanor; and it is expected
that ma ay days will not elapse before tho re?
cen' legislation regulating cases of impeach?
ment wnl be brought into requisition.
Tho plot, as far as it bas been developed,
seems to have been that Grant should write to
the President asking for written orders direct?
ing him to refuse obedience to any and all or?
ders coming from Mr. Stanton, unless he was
satisfied that such orders emanated from the
Executive, and should at the samo time give
his version of the understanding had between
Mr. Johnson aud himself in regard to the
course of action he should adopt if tho
Sonate failed to agree in the suponsion of Stan?
ton, which would afford au excellent opportuni?
ty for Grant to get his side of the question be?
fore tho public when the correspondence
Bhould bo called for. When the President cave
the written order requested, another consulta?
tion was held, and it was decided tht.t General
Grant Bhould refuse to obey the President's
written order, on tho ground that Mr. Stanton
had not been notified that he should issue no
order except directed go to do by tho Execu?
tive. If, after receiviug this determination of
the General, Mr. Johnson had sent such in?
structions to Stanton, addressed to him in any
other way than as Secretary of War, tho latter
woiild not have received thom; and if addressed
to him as Secretary of War, it would have been
deemed a full recognition ot biri as such.
General Grant then wrote his lei; er, dated
February 3, and placed it in tho hands of Mr.
Stanton immediately after the rassage of the
resolution presented by Mr. Hubbard, of West
Virginia, who knew piecisely the time when it
should be introduced. Thus Mr. Stanton had
possession of Grant's letter before it had reach?
ed thc President, and the whole correspondence
was hurried off to Mr. Colfax before the Presi?
dent could make any reply.
South Carolina Railroad.
ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS.
The stockholders of the South Carolina Rail
road reassembled yesterday at ll o'clock in the
hall of the 'outhwoBtern Railroad Bank.
The chairman, Colonel Jno. E. Carew, called
the meeting to order. The minutes of the pro?
ceedings of the previous day were read and
Reports from committees being?called for,
W. C. Bee, Esq., submitted thc following,
.v.:ich was adopted :
The committee, to whom was i cferred the
Annual Report of the President and Directors
of the South Carolina Railroad Company, wit li
the a 'companying report of tho General Su?
perintendent, and tho finan hi statement of
the Auditor, respectfully
REPOBT that tney have given to these com?
pendiums of the transac ions and experience
of tho past year su h careful examination as
was consistent with tho hmited period at the
disposal of the committee.
In the condensed yet lucid form in which
these documents are presented to the stock?
holders, it must be apparent to every careful
peruser of them that mucb bas been dono to?
wards restoring this valuable property to the
state of offi iency essential to tue development
of rosults reasonably anticipated.
In the progress of this work thero has beon
expended in tho restoration of depots, tho
road, locomotives \nd cars:
Say in I8(w.$368,537 17
And in the acquisition of additional
property in the shapo of locomo?
tives, cars, permanent tools, mate?
rial, roil estate, and subscript! ns
to steamship Unes between
Charleston and Now York, and
Cha'leston and Baltimore.$482,227.43
This heavy outlay, almost equivalent to the
net earnings of the road during that period,
precludes, of course, tho practicability ol a
simultaneous payment of dividends to the
stockholders. But not only has tte value of
their property been enhanced, but tho enhance?
ment has boen precisely in tho shape by which
alone it can bo rendered productive.
While then, in the promotion of tho true in- j
terest8 of the company, it should clearly be '
the doty of the President and Directors to
carry out the policy wisely inaugurated and j
judiciously pursued, in devoting, nnnuaUy, a
portion of tho net earnings of tho road to?
wards perfecting its efficiency, and thus ena?
bling it to compete successfully fur public pa?
tronage; yet, now that so mucb in that diroc- i
tion han boen accomplished, tho commit toe in- (
dulge the hope that tho attainment of an ob?
ject so essential to the interests of tho stock?
holders, will not be found incompatible with thc
payment of dividends ou tho capital stock-at <
first, perhaps, small, but necessarily increasing
with ;ho prosperity of the company. lu the
indulgence of this hope, tho committee feel as?
sured that they are in full accordance with tho I
earnest do-ire and intention of tho Board of |
As a summary of their labors, the commit
too recommend the adoption by tho stockhold- 1
ere of ihs following resolution.
Resolved, That the report of thoProi?dentand ,
Directora of tho South Carolina Railroad Com- j
pany indicates tho laudable intention on tboir \
part to place the road upon a firm andpermanent ?
basis of credit and officiency, and that in the j
pursuance of thia judiciou i policy, they have |
evinced that intelligence and sound judgment, :
which is alike creditable to themselves and nc- <
ceptable to the stockholders. ]
Respectfully submitted. ,

Charleston, February 12,1868. t
G. W. Williams, Esq., then submitted thc
following, which was adopted: (
The committee to whom were referred tho j
resolutions in regard to roduction of salarios
and the number ot officers and clerks, and tho
allowance of a per diem aud mileago to direc?
tors for attending meetings of tho board, (
have had the same uudir careful considera- (
tion, and bog leave to
REPOBT i;hat, in accordance with tho by-lawB '
of tho company, tho appointment of all officers, i
agents and clerks and tho fixing of their sula- (
ries is mado thc duty ol' tho Board of Direc?
tors. Tho entire management of tho affairs '
of tho company is necessarily cntrustod to i
thom when olectod by tho stockholders.
This practice bas obtained in tho manage?
ment of the road from its earliest history, and,
sofaras your committee uro infoimed, has !
worked well; nndthcy do not now soo any good
reason for ita change. Many of tho officers,
agents and clerks aro removed from timo to
time, as the business aud interest of tho road '
may require. Your committee do not deem it
expedient to restrict tho directors, cithor to
the number of men to bo employed by tho com?
pany, or to tho pay allowed them, but would
respectfully recommend that, in view of tho
pressing wants of the shareholders, tho strict?
est economy be observed in thc future man?
agement of tl e road in every department.
On inquiry? your committee arc informed
tha t tho salaries of the officers wore not in?
creased during tho war, uotwithataiiding tho
depreciation of tho currency, and that their pay
now is the samo as it was when tho currency
was equal to specie.
In regard to tho payment of a per diem and
mileago to directors, your committee aro ui
opinion that the actual expenses involved in
attending thc meetings of the board should bc
pa d by the company, but, from tho iniorina
tion they have of tho usage of other roads and
corporations, it is not tho praeli o to pay pi r
diem or mileago to directors, aud your commit?
tee do not recommend it in this instance.
Respectful y submitted.

W. A. COURT t?NAY.
J. P. SOUTHERN.
Mr. Holmes moved tho fallowing resolu?
tions, which, on motion of Major Qaviu, wero
]aid on tho table:
Resolved, That it bo referred to tho direc?
tors of tho road to inquire into the expediency
of declaring a dividend, payable in "receiva?
bles," with power to act on thc subject.
Resolved, That it bc referred to ! ?ii! direc?
tors to inquire into tho expediency of allowing
stockholders freo tickets, iii some ra! ic, pro?
portionate to tlioir stock, or to the vutes to
which stockholders aro entitled, with power to
act on the subject.
Mr. Holmes in introducing those resolutions
Baid that there was at present a great dis?
crimination betwocn stockholders in the coun
I try and stockholders residing in Charleston.
Tho formor, under a resolution adopted somo
years ago, had the privilege, if owning five
shares, of bringing their entire families ovor the
road to this city at the timo of the annual meet?
ing of the company, and of taking them back
over the road, wholly free of charge. Thoso in
the city, on the other band, although they may
hold five hundred shares, have not the privilege
of a free pass over thc road oven once a year.
This was an improper disciimination. Tho
stockholders receive uo dividends, and many
of thom have no moans whorcwith to travel.
Under tho first resolution now offered, if each
holder of half a share roceivod oin dollar, mid
of each whole share two dollars, in tho Billy
Receivable of tho company, which would only
take about $116,000-lena than tho earnings of
the road for ono month-thia difficulty would
in a measure be obviated, and the stockhold?
ers would have thc power to travel ovor the
road. If it wero practicable to mako this divi?
dend, his second resolution would bo unneces?
sary. He would movo, however, that both bc
referred to the President and Directors with
the power to act on thc subject.
Mr. Alonzo J. White opposed tho first reso?
lution then before tho meeting. He said that
it was nothing moro than a proposition to bor?
row money and incur debt. The company was
not suffering for want of dividends, but for want
of confidence, unless tho affairs of the compa?
ny aro worse than they wouid appear lo bc.
Economy-judicious economy-was needed;
not a mere raising of dollars and cents, but to
get valuable consideration at the lowest costs.
Why should the company plunge deeper and
deeper into difficulties? It would be a course
extremely injudicious at this time. Dividends
should not be declared until the money is
made, and not only made but received.
Mr. Holmes defended bis resolution, urging
that the matter bs referred to the Board to
judge of its expediency, to act upon it if
considered judicious, and without limit aa to
the ext jnt of tbe dividend. He said he knew
persons in Charleston, young ladies among
them, who owned hundreds of shares and had
uot the means to travel on the road.
Mr. Ravenel said that the proposed reference
could do no harm; that it would beget con?
fidence, and mako the stock more valuable.
Major Gavin said that his friend (Mr.
Holmes) could out-argue him. He did not
think that there was any danger of many coun?
try stockholders bringing down their tamilies,
because if they did they could not pay their
board; and, as to gentlemen who own so much
stock, why they ride how all the year for noth
ng. [ Major Gavin did not say how this thing
was done on the Greenville Road. Indeed,
3trango to say, he did not even once refer to
that model institution].
It was moved that the Chair appoint Com?
mittees on Proxies and Elections for 1869, which

being given by the superintendent, passengers

norning, were reconsidered.
Mr. Holmes then moved that tho resolutions
bo rcferrod to the direction for i heir discre?
tion, which motion was carried.
Mr. A. J. White offered the following, which
ivas unanimously adopted :
Whereas Mr. James G. Holmes is the only
survivor of tho first elected directora of the
South Carolina Canal and . ailroad Company,
tho first constructed railroad in tho Southern
States, and when completed the longest rail?
road in the world; and whereas, Mr. Holmes is

DiiESB OF ACTHES3ES.-In the January Ga?
laxy, Miss Oliv j Logan treats of "American
and Foreign Theatres." Wo quote an inter?
Tho dress of American actroases is more lux?
urious than :ny one who has not seen it would
boliove; aa far abovo that of Engliah actresses
as a pound ia above a dollar; so extravagant,
indeed, that in spite of the largo salaries givon,
actresses aro almost invariably required to do
so much in tho way of toilet that it is no unu?
sual thing for thom to be largely iu dobt at the
box office; tho ycariy benefit only sots them
' square''again with the world, leaving them
in tho unpleasant predicament of huvinp work?
ed hard tho wholo season for nothing but a
livelihood. Nor can they ever bo said to reach
that point whore what ia technically known us a
"wardrobe" boa been purchased, and will now
serve thom the rest of their days.
Tho American actress must vary her dross
with every varying fashion. Modern comedies
require modern toilets, and that thoso are ex?
pensive every married mau can testify. It is
rolatcd of Miss Madeline Henriques, tho last
loading lady of Wallack'a, that she said her
salary was n;>t much moro than sufficient to
keep her in boots and gloves. Her father be?
ing a successful merchant, and her benefit re?
ceipts being always enormous, enabled her to
hold the position with eclat. Tnis extniva?ant
system of stage toilet was "inaugurated" by a
loading actress known to evory visitor of New
York theatres duriug tho past ten years-Mrs.
John Hoey, a fortunato lady who made ono of
thoso i>pl?ndid matrimonial partis which ac?
tresses uro reputed to bo in the habit of mak?
ing so froqueully. This lady, whoso husband
unselfishly permitted hor to remain on tho
stage because she was fond of it, had a mcr
chaut-princely income at her disposal, and
spent it in a regally artistic manner ot habiting
herself. Lady Teazlo-who would "rather be
out of thc world than out of the fashion"_was
less elegantly attired than her American im?
personator. Julia, in the "Hunchback," was
going to have "not brooches, rings, and car
rings only, but whole nccklacos and stomach?
ers "of gems." Mrs. Hooy, who played thc part
had all tL*ese. Julia naya "then "will I ahow
you lace a foot deep--can purchase it? ' Mis.
Hoey bcd purchased it long ago.
Nor has thia extravagant system gone out
with tho long retirement of Mrs. Hoc v. It is
true other actresses cannot boast ot' auch dia?

copied from Paris papers informs us that
Adelina Patti rocently ivore a dress that cost
2000 francs. I do not know why American
newspapers should copy this as an extraordi?
nary bit of information, for it waB a frequent
thing to soo Mrs. Hoey on the stage with a
dress which cost twice that amount; and oven
now it ia quito a common matter for actresses
to wear dresses which cost $200, and oven $300.

ipg tho President announced that the hour of

A POLICE STOBT.-A Paris correspondent
writes : "Tho recont death of Nuzilhud, the
senior cashier at tho Comptoir d'Escompte,
tlirough whoso hands more gold has passed
than would buy up un ompiro, reminds mo of
tho following story. Nuzihard had always
enjoyed tho reptualion of being the moBt clever
and al tho samo time most prudent cashier.
However, in 1849 ho managed to get robbed of
a sum of ?4000 in JD40 notes. Tho director of
the Ccrnptoir, although ho had always had thc
greate?t confidence in thc ofton-tricd probity
of his clerk, still thinking it HlrRiige that he
could have had eo lar^-c a packet of notes
taken from him without his knowledge, went
to tho Prefect of Polico, 31. earlier, and told
hiiuall about it. The biter pronounced an
opinion favorable to tho honesty of poor Nuzill
ard. 'Remember,' uaid the director, 'that a
hundred bank nott s make quite a thick packot,
and I cannot seo ho v, with Ibis packot on his
breast-' 'Nothing for a clover thief,' Inter?
rupted M. Carlicr. 'Hore is a nowspaper ; fold
it, and button it in youl1 brcast-pockot. Now,
I will not promise you it will still be thore
when you leave tho Prefecture I*
"The director laughed, and. declared it was
impossible, while he carefully placed the news?
paper at tho side of bis pockot book. The two
gentlemen remained some time in conversa?
tion, during which the Prefect of Police was
receiving peoplo and writing orders. When
the director rose to go, M. Carlin-, after shak?
ing hands with him, said : 'By tho by, I sup?
pose you huvo tho newspaper all right 1 But, lo
and behold ! to tho intense stupetaetion of the
director, both pocket-book atid paper had dis?
appeared, whereupon the prefect rang the bell,
and the property was brought back by the
amateur thief who had done tho deed on a pen?
cil command from his master, and the astonish?
ed owner of tho stolen pocket-book then and
there declared his complete belief in his cash?
