The convention was again filled yesterday
with a large number of visitors, most of them
evidently being tourists who have availed
themselves of our superb ?pring weather to in?
spect the localities made famous by "grim
visage war." The convention looked as fresh
as if it h ad not drank a hogshead of champagne
the night before, and entered promptly upon
An attempt was again made to adjourn sine
die on Saturday, but it failed. The impression,
however, is that the body will complete ?B
work on or before that time.
The convention then proceeded to consider
the second article of the constitution, enti?
ced, "The Legislative Department." It was
read by sections a third time, passed, and so
much as is now published below is now a per?
manent article of the constitution.
Section tJiirtv-four, referring to a homestead
law, was not considered, it being understood
that a substitute will bo offered to-morrow.
On motion of B. F. Whittemore the conven?
tion agreed to adjourn until ten o'clock to-day.
Before the formal adjournment tho President
made the following remarks:
Tho chair has been informed, with great
grief and mortification, that there is a bar
fcopt. down st airs, in thc basement otory tty
whose authority it has been opened or is kept,
he does not know. It was certainly not with
his consent or by vote of the house. The chair
further understands this bar-room has degen?
erated into such a character that it should be
promptly closed; that there aro now fifteen or
twenty intoxicated persons in it. He has never
had possession of the house, and doe J not feel
competent to give an order referring to mat?
ters outside of the hall, but he sincere iy hopes
that a motion may be made by some gentleman
upon the floor of the convention that the bar?
keeper shall be immediately expelled.
Mr. B. F. Whittemore moved that the house
be put in charge of the President of the con?
vention, and the bar-room shall be hereafter
R. C. De-Large- I have no objection to clos?
ing anything that the hcuso desires. I do,
however, object to any statement being made
which is not strictly true. There is no public
bar in the basement of the house. It is a re?
freshment saloon, and the statement that there
is one, two, three or fifteen persons down there
now who are intoxicated, is false, for I have
just come from that room with half a dozen
other gentlemen. (Laughter.)
F. L. CaidozQ-If the gentleman has just
come from there, he is not fit to speak to this
B. C. DeLarge-I will only add in reply that
the clerical gentleman may himself be seen in
that jsaloon almost every day after the adjourn?
Mr. C. C. Bowen called for the previous ques?
tion, which was sustained. The main ques?
tion then being on agreeing to the motion of
B. F. Whittemore, that gentleman said:
I have no desire to make any speech in this
connection. The gentleman who has returned
from the bar-room has sufficiently convinced
every person on this floor that it is necessary
to close the place, and I hope it will be done.
The question then being taken, the motion
was agreed to, and the sergeant-at-arms was
instructed to cause the obnoxious gentleman
down stairs to evacuate.
The convention then adjourned.
Tbs following is the Legislative Article which
has passed its third reading :

TICS-THE SUMMONS SERVED ON THE PRESI?
A Washington dispatch, dated March 8, to
the Baltimore Gazette, says :
The friends of President Johnson are less
sanguine of his acquittal this evening than
they have been. The impression is being made
upo'n the minds of the Radicals that unless
they convict their party is hopelessly lost, and
fears are entertained that this impression will
ensure the conviction of the President beyond
peradventure. If the issue be the conviction
of Andrew Johnson or the destruction of the
Radical party, the Democrats feel sore that
conviction wi? follow. Such is the talk to?
night in political circles. The article lately
published in the Nation, New York, declaring
that a verdict in favor of the President is the
death warrant of the dominant party, has been
placed in the hands of every Radical senator
and member of Congress, and is likely to have
a controlling influence. Some members of the
poatoffice commission, from Boston, paid their
respects last evening to Senator Sumner, when
the subject of the impeachment of the Presi?
dent was introduced in conversation. Mr.
Sumner was particularly dignified, and said, as
a member of the court, it would not become
him to give expression to any opinion, though,
as a senator, he had freely criticised the actions
of public men, and they had in turn criticised
him. The purpose of Sjnator Hendricks in
objecting to Ben Wade's being sworn seems to
have been misrepresented by the Republican
press. Mr. Hendricks never for a moment
doubted that Wade would be allowed his seat
as a member of the court; but he wished to
call the attention of the country to the true
character of the judges who were to form the
Court of Impeachment Having effectually
accomplished this purpose, he withdrew his
objection, and allowed the President in
expectancy to be sworn. If iMr. Sum
npr if? dignified in regard to the pend?
ing trial, the same remark viii not apply
to the acting Vice-president, who declared at
the tea table, a few evenings since, that if he
had the power to remove him, Andrew John?
son would not be in the White House a week
longer, at the same time spicing the remark
with a bit of profanity not to be repeated in
this correspondence. The great motive power
in the impeachment movement is believed ot
be General Ulvsses S. Grant, wko spends part
of every day "in consultation ivith Edwin M.
Stanton. To-day the General held a grand
pow-wow at Willard's Hotel, at which General
Logan, of the committee of managers, and
others were present. The precise nature of
tho conference ia not known, but it is under?
stood that all parties left the conference much
elated with their situation. Among other sub?
jects discussed was the division of tho spoils
after they shall have succeeded in getting pos?
session of the executive branch of thc govern?
ment. It is understood Mr. Wades cabinet
has already been arranged. Mr. Sumner taking
the State Department, and E. B. Washburn, the
Department of tbe Interior; Mr. Bingham ia on
the slate for Attorney-General; Speaker Colfax
is to select for himself a foreiyntnission beyond
the possible danger of niteo-glpJrme; Senator
Wilson agrees to take his chances for the Vice
Presidency, and the indications are now deci?
dedly in favor of his being second on the Grant
ticket. In the meantime it is rumored that
Seward is playing his cards to hold over, and
professes neutrabty between the conflicting
elements. He claims that he has been able
not only to carry the country saf ely through a
terrible; civil war, but even nowby bis masterly
foreign policv bo is avoiding auy panic or in?
convenience in the diplomatic relations of the
nation. These facta, ho Ihini?, should com?
mend him to tho favorable :onsidenitiou of
Mr. Johnson'a successor, but there is good
reason tu believe that Mr. Sewsrd'a diplomatic
record will not bctakeu into accotait by "Pre?

am.;,STANTON'S OETP ON THE WAR oma ;-REAS?
ONS FOB HTS CONTINUOUS OCCUPATION OF THE
A Washington dispatch, of the 8th instant,
to the Baltimore Sun, says :
It has been a matter of some speculation
among the curious as to why Mr. Stan ton con?
tinues to spend both night and day in the War
Department after all danger of his siimmary
removal seems over. It seems that there are
very Rood reasons to Mr. Stanton ind his
friends for this course. It has been learned
that there are several prominent officials of the
department who would consider it thuir duty,
in case of the momentary absence of Mr. Stan?
ton, to obev any orders from General Thomas,
which the latter might isau6 aa Secretar/ of War.
Thia being the case, Mr. Stanton andhiB
friends in Congress have determined that he
shall never leave his post for an inst int until
his status is satisfactorily settled.
THE PRESIDENT'S UNE OF DEFENCE.
The Washington Chronicle says :
Since the passage of the impeachment reso?
lution two weeks ago, the President's legal ad?
visers h-ivc been busily occupied in perfecting
their pbnp. of defence. Tho Attorney- General,
although it is not positively known that he
will, as has been stated, appear for tie Presi?
dent as one of his counsel before the ? lenate, is
certainly engaged in assisting to ge t up the
case. It is believed on pretty good authority
that the following are tho main coin ts in the
line of defence now contemplated, th 3ugh, of
course, it will be subject to future :nodifica
tions, as circumstances may seem tc dictate,
or as counsel may BUggeet :
Firsl. On appearing by counsel o a Friday
next, motion is to be made to have the hear?
ing postponed until the first Monda . in May.
Failing in this, as they undoubtedly will, they
Second. Make a motion to quash th e articles
of impeachment, on tbe ground tba , if true,
they clo not constitute a high crime or misde?
Third. Exceptions will be taken to certain
senators, on the ground that they ' lave pre?
judged the case, and that the Senat: has al?
ready declared the President guilty ol the main
charge, by the passage of the r?solu tion con?
demning the removal of Secretary Stinton.
Fourth. Exceptions will be taken t) the ju?
risdiction of the court, on the ground that it
is not tbe Senate of the United B :atcs; the
President's theory that Congress is i "a body
banging on the verge of the government,"
being here brought into play, regardl ess of the
fact that it would, after some time, p rove him?
self not to be President of the Unite! States
a result less objectionable to him than re?
moval from office, and disqualification therefor
in the future.
Fifth. That the Tenure of Ofilce bill cannot
apply to the case of Mr. Stanton, ni* only on .
account of the proviso in the first S? ction, but
also on the ground that having bc en passed
after Mr. Stanton's appointment, it cannot be
applied to his tenure of office, with< ut having
a retroactive effect and becoming thereby an
ex post facto law.
Sixth. That Mr. Stanton was fum'lus officio
after the 4th day of March, 1865, the expiration
of Mr. LLncol n's first term, and th at he has
not since that date been Secretary of War de
jure, although exercising the fane tiona of that
It is said that some of the President's most
prominent advisers counsel him to tender his
resignation should the motion to quash the
articles be denied by a majority of two-thirds
of the Senate, and thereby avoid the disqualifi?
cation for office under the United S ates Gov
vernment, which would doubtless follow should
he bo convicted. If his resignation were ac?
cepted, he would thus retain his eligibility for
the next Presidency. This, however, is a re
Bult in which none but his immediate friends
and parasites are especially interested.
WHAT THE "NATION" THINKS OF TAO EACJT1IENT.
Thc following brief oditorial . rem the Na?
tion, by far tho ablest paper published in tho
iuliucuu trf Radicalism, et-Wuprl rt great eon
sation in Washington :
It cannot bc said, as for as our observation
extends, that impeachment has grown in favor
with the public during the past wet k. In fact,
the attitude of the public all along has been
one of resignation rather than eagurness. The
enthusiasm about it has been confined very
much to the "original impeacheis" in Con?
gress and to those newspapers wh ose normal
condition is one of enthusiasm; nven these,
however, havo not been as excited as they
have seemed. Owing to their bab ts of never
keeping any emotions in reserve, they are
obliged to go through extraordinary contor?
tions in order to attract any not.ee on occa?
sions which they really mean to be solemn.
The prevailing feeling now, we ihink, is, it
is safe to say, one of willingness ? have Mr.
Johnson out of the way, by means of a fair
and impartial trial, but of equal willingness
to consign the .Republican party to destruc?
tion in case the attempt to convic t fails.
A Singular Institution-Tlie Great
Foundling Hospital in Moscow.
A movement is on foot in New York for the
establishment of a foundling hospital on a
large scale, on the plan of that in Moscow,
The Moscow foundling hospital rs the largest
in the world. It was organized by the Em?
press Elizabeth about one hundred years since,
and has now a yearly fund of $1,000,000 for its
support. There is a Lombard ba ik, and also
a savings bank attached to it. lacie are ad?
mitted yearly some twelve tbousaad children.
These are not left, as in some < >ther institu?
tions of a similar kind, at the door of the
building, but are taken openly, either by their
mothers, or some friends, into an entrance
room, set apart for that purpose, "j .s we stopped
a few moments in this room, we t omited sixty
women, each with an infant in he.* arms, wait?
ing, in single file, to make their deposit. No
question is asked by the recording clerk, ex?
cept "Has the child been baptize ir and if BO,
by what name?" The child ia tin n registered,
a number is placed around ita neck, and figures
on its cot, while a receipt showing the same
number is handed to the bearer of tbe child,
in order to enable her to visit, or even claim
it at any future period up to the age of ten
years. The infant is then pass?e':, into another
room and handed to its future foster parent,
she being the woman who nappe, is, at tue mo?
ment, to stand at the head of tho hst amongst
a number who are always wait Lng in atten?
dance. These women are generally peasants
from the country, who have, it was told us,
themselves been depositors of th cir own chil?
dren bat a few hours before, or else mothers
who have left their own children in the coun?
try to be brought up by hand, at tracted by the
wages and good quarters provide d them in the
institutions. It is not suppose 1 that even a
majority of these children are illegitimate.
The great proportion are left there by the
p?renos, from poverty, or from bc ing in service.
The nurses have distinct appa rel for each of
the different wards in these vut buildings.
Some have blue, others red anl green capB.
There were seven hundred nurses in thia one
ball alone. lu passiug from ono ward to
another we could not help remaning the clock?
like regularity with which tho whole establish?
ment is conducted. There s jems nothing
omitted which good domestic ms nagement can
suggest or medical art approve. The simple
arts of washing and dressing 0 re brought to
perfection, and executed with f reat rapidity.
The infants are bathed in copi er tubs, lined
with flannel, and they are dressed on down pil?
lows, instead of the hard hoops or bony lega of
Never upon earth was there a more aston?
ishing n?xture of baby-flesh-big and little,
pug-nosed, blue and black-eyed, fat, lean, red,
yellow and white babies. It mi rht be suppos?
ed that they would make a gre a deal of noise,
but we only heard about forty or fifty small
choruses while there. But sup Dose the whole
number should start at oneil Who can
imagine the stylo of music of G0J0 baby voices,
when they give up ther mind to it? But 1 sup?
pose they spend moat of their time in sleep?
ing, and seem to be muoh given to eating and
drinking. During the summer nonths several
thousands of these children are sent out in the
couulry to nurae. As soon aa they become old
enough they are taught reading and writing,
?iud tho most iutii'liiie.it arc selected .13 teach?
ers. The bjy? usually receive P. military edu?
cation, and certain portion ol' them furnish
recruits lor the imperial army.
