Vo'.ock the Senato galleries were final, bat
there were no black faces in thc crowd. This j
ereates indignation among thc republicans.
The gallery was almost entirely filled with
ladies, and members appear to have confined

occupy their usual seats. In thc rear there
are one hundred and fifty chairs for members,

MANDED-THE PRESIDENT TO ANSWER ON
UAR CH 23-ADJOURNMENT OF THE HIGH COURT.
. WASHINGTON, March 13-3 P. M-The
chaplain, in opening the Senato, prayed that
the verdict of the high court might be such
as would bo approved by the people and the
high court of Heaven.
During the proceedings reported in the dis?
patch of 1:15 P. M., Chief Justice Chase
snubbed Senators Howard and Grimes twice
by mterrupting their suggestions with the re
-mtii, "The next thing in order."
. Senators Edmunds, Patterson and Vickers
being sworn in, the managers and members of
the House entered the chamber.
On motion, the President's counsel were no?
tified that the court was ready to proceed, and 1
they also entered the chamber.
Mr. Stanbery read a paper from tho Presi- '
dent, authorizing himself and J. L. Black,Wm. ?
M. Evatts, B. B, Curtis, ead Thomas A B. Nel?
son, to represent bim. Mr. Stanbery asked
for forty days, in which to prepare his answer. ]
Mr. Bingham opposed, insisting that the niles j
required a plea to be made to-day, and in this
ho was supported by Mr. Wilson. A sharp ar- ?
griment ensued, when Mr. Edmunds mcved to
give to April 6th, for the presentation of an
answer, but before the question was put, Sena?
tor Morton moved that the Senate retire for '
consultation, which was carried. *
The Senate remained ont two hours and ten 1
minutes. On their return an order was read
that tho President should make answer by the
23d March. Tho managers then moved that
immediately after their replication the trial .
should proceed, which was lost by a vote of '
twenty-six to twenty-five.
Tho Republicans voting nay were : Messrs. 1
Anthony, Edmunds, Feesenden, Fowler. Frey- 1
linghuysen, Grimes, Henderoon, Howe, both 1
the Morrells, Norton, Sherman, Sprnguo, Trum- 1
bull, Van Winkle and Willey.
Mr. Conkling then moved that the trial com- 1
menee immediately after the replication of the .
managers, unless the Senate granted addition- ]
al time for good canee, which was carried by a 1
strict party vote.
The high court then adjourned to March j
23d, and the Senate adjourned to Monday. '

OTHER LICE FOB THE MANAGERS-THE DEVIL
WASHINGTON, March 13-Evening.-Chief
Justice Chase governed tho high court very
The chaplain, in his elaboiatc appeal, failed
to mention the acciised.
The managers were defeated in their at?
tempts,-first, to compel an anster to-day,
and, second, to have the trial proceed immedi?
ately' after the replication, regardless of the
state of preparation of tho defence.
The court gave the accused no authority or
money to send for witnesses, nor was this de?
manded by the defence.
The debate developed the fact that after the
President makes his answer on the 23d Inst,
the managers will have to submit their replica?
tion to the House before presenting it. The
managers estimate that this routino will occupy
three days, after which, if the Senate continues
in its present temper, the President will have
a liberal time for preparation.
Only Stanbery, Curtis and Nelson were pre?
sent on the part of the President. They all
spoke, and made a favorable impression.
Bingham, Wilson and Butler spoke on the part
of the managers. Butler was in favor of
speeding the proceedings, as this was a rail?
Stevens, during the absence of the Senate,
reclined on two chairs in a prostrate condition.
His terrible cough gave interest to the inter?
ruption ot the proceedings. '

THE BBAZILIANS.-Thc Monroe (La.) Journal
publishes a letter from Mr. C. G. Matthews,
mitten at San Paulo. Brazil, from v?iich we
make the following extracts :
You wish to know if I am satisfied here. I
will say this, that I can make au abundance to
eat with less labor, than anywhere else I have
been, but I do not like the associations. I
dont like the barefooted and iiake?-frGin-thc
waist-up women, aud mcu with their shirts
outside of their pants. I don't uko the bicho
and bayouu and thc one hundred fleas now
racing up and down my legs, and, though land
minc enjoy thc very best Health, in :i climate
favorable to longevity, I can't say that I am
satisfied, or willing to spend tho rcinuaut of my
days hero ; in tune, however, I may be recon?
ciled and then 1 can write to you and give von
the reasons for thc change. There is a class
in our county who would do well here, and
wonld, I think, bo pleased with the cou..try,
I mean thoso who can hardly earn a support
by hard labor, and who caro very little'for
society ; hore they can five "fat" by working
one-fifth of their time, and if industrious, could
make a little competency besides. If you wish
to come to Brazil you can very easily" marry a
coffee plantation and get a very nice ~oman to
boot (the better classes are weil educated, and
some of them very pretty); otherwise it will
not suit you. as you don't like to work. Some
cf the Americans oxpress themselves delighted
with the country, and probablv a good many of
my Monroerille friends would like it better
than I do. To the lover of hunting, I would
say that game is searoe and hard to get at, and
a min would starve to death for sport and
supp ?rt who depended upon hunting. Fish
are p ' mtif ul on the coast, but very scarce here.
I. cul 1 see more fish in crossing half a dozen
st. cam i in Florida than I could catch here in a
TH JE CONVENTION".
Thc convention is in the position of an au?
thor, who, having reached the closing chapter
of his novel, devot'c6 his final hours to the
gathering np of the tangled threads of the
story, and, with amendatory touch, prepares
it for the public eye. New subjects of legisla?
tion are scarcely entertained, and since tho
nominations have been made, and personal
popularity no longer depends on the success of
peculiar measure?, there is even a disposition
to tone down and moderate what is objection?
able to a degree, which shall render thc entire
work, as far as it is possible to be so, accept?
able to the masses.
The convention assembled at the usual hour.
Gen!. Canby shortly arrived, and was presented
to the body and was received with cheers.
