Court are reduced to six.
A preamble and sixteen resolutions, a hind

tion, but it was not seconded. Then, for the
purpose of getting a direct vote, a move was

The Washington correspondent of the Balti*
mere Sun, writes to that paper, under date 0/
Friday night :
This being the day for the President to re?
spond to the impeachment summons, there
was much excitement about the capitol build?
ing this mcn?np, especially about the Senate ;
wmg, where thc passages were all crowded ?
with persons seeking admission.
The Senate chamber was so metamorphosed ?
by the arrangements which had been made for 1
the trial that it could scarcely be recognized. 1
On the right and lett of the chair were placed
long tables for the accommodation of the im- ?
peachment manager? and the President's conn- ;
eel. All the vacant space on the floor was oc?
cupied with cane-seat ch rare for the acoommo- |
dation of members of the House, while the ?
eofas were advantageously disposed for such
Cabinet officers and othe.v high privileged oui- <
ci?is as might be present. A cordon of police
was stretched all around the capitol, a nie of \
soldiers tramped back and forth, every corri?
dor and vestibule of the magnificent building <
swarmed with uniformed officers of the law, ;
and at every entrance leading to the Senate j
wing, and each tangle door of the floor and gal?
lery, stood the doorkeopers, with the bright
star guttering on the breast, to prevent the
passage of those who did not possess the 1
talismanic piece of pasteboard. Before reach- 1
ing the presence chamber admission tickets
had to be shown no lesa than three times.
In the avenues leading to the capitol, in :
the rotunda, and on the House side might [
be seen large crowds sauntering carelessly
along, and seemingly not at all envious of
their more privileged fellow-citizens, who
possessed the open sesame to the other wing.
There was no ru. h at all on the Senate side, as
it was well known that under the regulations
adopted, those who had tickets would experi?
ence no difficulty in obtaining seats. Ai twelve
o'clock everything wan very quist in the
chamber; a few straggling senators were in
their seats, and the galleries were not half
filled. The rest of the ticket holders came in
leisurely during the morning hour, and at one
o'clock the galleries were fibed, and presented
a most magnificent sieht. Although the
weather was gloomy, many of the fair sex had
done honor to the occasion by appearing in
their new spring attire. The diplomati: gal?
lery was occupied principally by the attaches
of the different legations. Conversation was
carried cn in so loud a tone during the consid?
eration of the legislative business that Mr.
Wade threatened more than once to order the
clearing of the galleries, which did not, how?
ever, seem to intimidate the fair culprits in tho
A noticeable fact was the entire absence of
the colored citizens, the whole upturned line
of faces being unrelieved by a single dark coun?
tenance. At 124 o'clock, several verbal mes?
sages from the President was received bv the
hands of Colonel Moore, one of the private
secretaries, and it was immediately whispered
around the galleries, "Tho President has sem
in his resignation," and other equally improb?
able surmises. The usual legislation was pro?
ceeded with up to the hour of 1 o'clock, but
the minds of the senators seemed far away,
and a number of bfils were passed, without a
soul having the least idea what they contained.
Punctually at 1 o'clock Mr. Wade rapped his
gavel and vacated bis chair; punctually at 1
o'clock Mr. Chief Justice Chase, in his robes,
entered from the rear and seated himself, snd
with a single rap transformed the body before
him from the Senate to thc Eigh Court of Im?
* The proclamation commanding silence waa
made, the journal of the proceedings of the
court on Friday last was reed, the senators
who had not been sworn qualified as members
of the court, tho impeachment managers came
in and took the seats assigned them, and the
various formalities were gone through in or?
der. Tho calling ol the President of the
United States by name by the sergeant-at
arms, in the summons to appear and answer
th'j charges, was very impressive. The coun?
sel for the President then entered from the
door on the right of the chair and proceeded
to seat themselves at the table on the same
side. But three of them were able to be pres?
ent. Messrs. Stanbery, Curtis and Nelaon.
They attracted some" attention as they came
m and tcok thea- Places, Mr. Stanberv, as the
senior counsel, taking the chair at the right
end oi ?ha table. Mr. St?nbery then read, in
a low and measured tone, the reply of the
President and the request tor forty day? time
m which to answer.
This request was received with evident dis
s&tiEtactiou, several senators even ?oing so far
as to snake their heads, whilo a "few of the
Radicals of the Honsu uttered audible ex?
clamations of dissent. As was to he expected,
Mr. Burgham and his colleagues made hitter
opposition to the very reasonable request of
the President, and Mr. Bingham had the
effrontery io accuse Mr. Stanbery with exhibit?
ing temper, when the manner of that gentle?
man couid not possibly be open lo anv such
criticism. After a brief discussion of this mat?
ter the Sonate retired fer consultation. In the
interval the galleries s.At very patk ntlv. ind
the time waa beguiled in .-onversaticn. The
impeachment managers and a larre number of
'.Le marchers of the House remained ea tho
flour, and were busily engaged in discussing
the probable tims :h*,- Senate would allow.

whom he declaimed in the most excited rx
ner, insisting that the Senate should aile TI
Mr. Bingham looked exceedingly wise
seemed to toke it for granted that the Sei
would sustain his views of the matter. Bun:
were brought out at various intervals af
what the Senate would do, and bets were fi
ly offered and taken in tba reporters' gall
naming periods from thirty days down to se*.
The appearance of the galleries was not uri
that of a well-dressed audience at the tbei
during the intervals of the opera scenes,
cept that the music was lacking, and mani
the ladies expressed regrets that the Mai
Band was not present to contribute to the pl?
ure of the occasion by the performance

of four approached the galleries commeni
to thin out somewhat, and Hr. Thad. Steve

The counsel of tho President remained m
of the time at their desk, and engaged in CK

Stanbery talked together for a long time,
few minutes before i Mr. Wade came in fin
the marble room, where the Senate was, a
brought the news that it was pretty sure tl
but ten days would be allowed, and which t
?eared to giv9 the deepest gratification to t
House managers. Considerable curiosity **
manifested as to the movements of Mr. Chai
many contending that he had no right to i
tire with the Senate, while others took thee
pc site ground. It seems that Mr. Chase d
go in, but he did not vote. Mr. Wade abstai
ed from voting in the secret seBBion, as al
on the different questions in the open sessic
but it is understood from most reliable sourc
that he only proposes withholding his vc
when it not needed.
This may be delicacy, as asserted by some
bis particular friends, out there are those wi
cannot see it in that light. Finally, after i
abeence of two hours, the Senate returned
its chamber, and the Chief Justice announci
that it had decided only to allow the resp:,
dent ten days in which to answer. There
no denying that this action took many by sa
prise, though but a confirmation of the stat
ment made above, and the disappointment
the President's counsel was plainly evident ;
their changed countenances. Mr. Binghax
elated by what he might justly regard as
great triumph, got up and offered a mo tic
that the trial be proceeded with immediate!
upon the hiing of the application of the Hom
managers, ard this was voted down by tt
close vote of 25 to 26.
Other motions were made, and, finally, aft?
a characteristic speech by Mr. Butler, and
few remarks by Mr. Nelson, an order wt
adopted that the trial shall be proceeded wit
immediately, or the filing of the replicatioi
unless otherwise ordered. Tho court then ac
journed nut ] March ?3d, ten days hence.
The galleries were immediately emptied, an
the large police force which had been on dut
all day were dismissed.
There is much talk about the action of th
Senate to-night, and the genual impressio:
seems to be that it dees not augur favorabl
for Mr. Johnson. It is understood that tb
order naming ten days was not adopted by
very large majority of the Senate, and tba
several of the more moderate of the Bepubli
cans advocated the granting of a longer time
It will be seen that the solid Radical vote wa
cast for the crier, which was adopted, aa men
tioned above, but a number of the Republican
say that it does not preclude them from votinj
to give the President more time.
DETAILED PEOCEEDrSOS OF THE COTJET OF TM
At 1 o'clock the President pro tem. of th<
Senate said the chair would now be vacated foi
the Chief Justice of the United States.
The Chief Justice then entered and took thc
chair of the presiding officer, and directed thc
sergeant-at-arms to make proclamation.
The eergeant-at-arms.-Hear ye ! hear ye!

silence while the Senate of the United States

A large number of the members of the House

The Chief Justice-The Secretary will call

The Secretary then called the roll of those
who had not been sworn, commencing with
air. Doolittle, who was not present. The re?
naming senators were tben sworn, as follows:
Mr. Edmunds, of Vermont; Mr. Patterson, of
New Hampshire; Mr. Vickers, of Maryland.
The Chief Justice.-The Secretary of the
Senate will read the return of the sergeant-at
The Secretary then read:

Bon, President of the United States ! appear
and answer to the articles of impeachment ex?
hibited against you by the House of Represen?
tatives of tho United States.
After a short interval, Mr. Johnson, of Mary?
land, rose and moved that the counsel for the
defence be notified tc enter the chamber; and
the motion was adopte 1.
Messrs. Stanbery, Nelson and Cartis appear?
ed as counsel for the President, ar.a took the
setts assigned them.
At 1.20 P. M. the sergeant-at-anns officially
announced the members of the House of Rep?
resentatives, and tho remainder of that body
entered and took seats.
The Chief Justice-Tho counsel of the
President will now put in their reply to the
articles of impeachment.
Mr. Stanbery-Mr. Chief Justice, my broth?
ers, Mesera. Curtis and Nelson, and myself, are
here as conns*] for Andrew Johnson, President
of the United States. I have his authority to
answer to the articles of .mpeachment, and
with your leave will read.
Mr. Stan berry then read :
"Ju ihe Halter oftte Impea&menioJ Andrew Johnson,

The reply furtaer says that alter a careful

The counsel for the President therefon
mit that tne.interpretation of the 8th ru
construed by by the managers of imp

Mr. Wilson briefly endeavored to contn
the position of Mr. Curtis. He expresse
great surprise that it was possible fe
learned counsel to so construe tho rule.
Mr. Stanbery said the objection on the
of the managers was of so singular a char
that he bad not, in the whole course o
practice, ever heard anything like it.

ted States is arraigned by the House of B<

It bas not been many clay s since the Presi
received his summons. Two of his co anse
not now present, and one, at least, has no!
arrived in the rity,and we say, therefore, tba
are not prepared to proceed with the trial. >
let us Bee whether the rule, if construed to
letter, would operate to prevent this posrp*
ment. Article 9 of the rules commence?
follows : "At twelve o'clock and thirty mini
afternoon of the day appointed for the rel
of the summons against the person im pe ad
&c." Article 10 says "the person impeac
shall then be called to appear and answer, i
Kow, construe the letter of the rule, and tni
bot the return day, and the person impeac
has appeared, by his counsel to answer,
asks further time to prepare that answer,
another rule, the 11th, it is prescribed that
twelve o'clock and thirty minutes afternooi
the day appointed 'or the trial of the impea

themselves recognize two days-one of t
and one of anjwer, and this is the day for
return of the summons and not the t
day, and the letter of one rule tbref
answers the letter of the other. The Pri
dent bas not yet had sufficient time to p
pare an answer to the charges. His time j
been famf occupied in getting counsel and
consultation with those whom be propoi
should bo bis counsel. All of the latter hi
not yet bad time or opportunity to fully exa
ine the charges, and had no reason to exp
that such great haste would be urged. Nc
if the honorable managers will go back to i
peachment trials in the very worst days a
under the very worst phases, they will fi
that English fair play always prevailed, a
ample time was given to answer all ch arg
Another reason why this postponement shot
be allowed was that no witnesses bad yet be
summoned; and, indeed, tba defence did r
well know yet who to summon. And now v
the managers still insist that wo must be foi
ed to proceed? "Strike, but bear me." Gi
us the same opportunity and the same adva
tages allowed in common civil cases, where
least thirty days is allowed for an answer; gi
us a reasonable time and a lair bearing, ai
there will then be no cause, whatever ford;
satisfaction. For one, he would say that !
could not, in justice, proceed with so imrx
tant a trial in such speed-such baste-wit
out giving it a more harsh term.
The Chief Justice said he was somewhat ez
barrassed with the construction of some of t]
rules. The 21st rule prescribed that the ca
on each side should be opened by one perso
but be understood that to appiy whim tbe te
tirnpny was all ?j; and be construed anotb
rule to meab Chat all preliminary question
should be argued not to exceed one hour c
each side. He was not fully satisfied wbethi
that was to apply the bouse rule to each sic
or to each counsel who chose to speak. I
new of an embarrassment upon those .qua
tiona, therefore, he had allowed considerab
latitude to debate, and would continue to do t
unless otherwise ordered by the Senate.
Mr. Bingham said the rules adopted by tl
Senate were a law to themselves, and no con
mon law principles could be properly ap-lie
to the case. The Senate had presented rule
for the government of the trial, and he waate
to see whether, at the very threshold of th
business, a very plain rule was to be disregard
ed. He was surprised at the manner in whic
his learned friend bad argued this matter. H
seemed to couple together in one link the az
swer to the summons and the trial. No on
pretended that this was the day for the tria
We cannot consider the question of trial c
the time of the trial until the pleas be plead
ed; for it depends upon the plea whethe
there will be a trial. If a plea of guilty, fo
instance, were entered, there would be no ne
cessity for discussing the question of the rna
at all. It will be time enough to tal
about the trial when the pleas are in and th
issue ?3 made up. The rule adopted by tb
Senate is a plain one, and there is nothing ii
the 10th and 11th rules to limit the opera
tion of the other rule which requires ai
answer upon tins day. All the managers asi
on the part of the Ho cse of representatives ii
that a plain rule sholl oe strictly enforced, and
that the case shall not be postponed for fort:
days, ?ind at the end of that limo to be met
perhaps, by a dilatory plea as to whether thiE
is the Seaato of the United States. The sum'
mons was issued six days ago, and the Presi?
dent has had ample time to reply. The actior
of this body does not limit the plea to be en<
tered, and under a general plea of not guiltj
even' conceivable defence may bo made. He
saw "no reason, therefore, why thc rule should
not he enforced and the accused be compelled
No other gentleman rising to speak, thc
Chief Justice said tbe counsel for the Presi
dent had asked a continuance of forty days ir
which to prepare their answer. The rule re?
quires thai tho question shall te taken without
debate. All m favor of the motion say aye,
Mr. Morton moved that the Senate retire foi
This motion was agreed io, and at 2 o'clock
the senators retired to the maible room :'oi
At four o'clock the senators re-entered the
Senate chamber, and the Chief Justice resumed
The Chief Justice then addressed the coun?
sel lor the President and notified them that tha
Senate had declined to grant the request for
forty days' tims in which to prepare to answer
the articles of impeachment, and then directed
the secretary to read the order agreed upon by
The secretary thea read thc order, which re?
quires the respondent to hie his answer on or
before the 23d day of March instant.
Mi1. Ringham said he was instructed by the
managers o? the impeachment on the part of
the House ol' Representatives to offer the fol?
lowing order :
"Ordered that upon thenhng of a replication
by thc* managers of the House ot Representa?
tives to th? answer of Andrew Johnson, Presi?
dent of the United Slates, ta thc articles ex?
hibited against him by the Boase of Represen?
tatives, tho trial ot said articles o? impeach?
ment shall proceed forthwith/'
The Chief Justice pm the question, and an?
nounced that it was decided in the negative.
Hr. Sherman offered an order that thc trial
of the articles of impeachment shall be pro?
ceeded with on the Oth day of April.
Mr. Butler desired ;o know il'the managers
of the House had the risht to be heard cn this
The Chief Justice replied that ho considered
the managers had a right to address the noun
on the nijtion.
Mr. Butler said he represented the House of
Representatives, and tue House ot Represen?
tatives represented the people cf the United
State-} ia pressing an carly tr-al of the accused
-m urcs?ing to as speedy a termination as
possible this most .niportant case. The state
of the country, the :nt---rest of the people, all
seem to urge "a speed; trial.
'ike ordinary delays of tbe .aw, the usual
melons and nues of a cour., have no applica?
tion whatever to this case, for this reason, if
for no other, that when ordinary question* are
involved, where no great interests are at stake,
tbcr-j :-. no danger to :hc common weal in the
dela*'; the reoubiie can naffer no detriment.
Sui "herc iaVH.?u*? oi I^eprescniatiYcs have
presented at the bar of the Senate, in the
solemn form, articles of impeachment ai
the chief ruler of the nation, and they i
your judgment upon it. That he ia wi<
powers which do not belong to him; i?at
recreant to the best interests of the n;
that he is acting in a manner detxitnen
the peace and safety of the country, arc
he still purposes thus to act, we do not b(
can admit of any doubt, or do we dont
ability to prove it; and we contend thai
necessities of the occasion call for an imi
ate determination of this question.
Sir, wbo is the viminal i I beg poi don
respondent? He is the Chief Magistral
the nation. For the first time in tba liste
the world bas a people brought its ru er t
bar of its highest court ; and, therefore
precedents which may be cited fail to ban
proper bearing on the disposition of the <
don. He is the commander of youl aro
he controls, through hiB subord?nales,
treasury: he controls your navy; be con
all the elements of your power as a nation,
controls your foreign relations, and zr ay ai
time, if it so suits him, seriously csmpli
them, even while be is arraigned at y o ru
for high crimes and misdemeanors; and, r
me, sir, the great question at issue now
principal charge upon which be is ar raign
is whether be shall be able of his ova wj
1 control your armies against your wis! ?es an
defiance of your laws-whether he shill coi
the great military arm of the counfcy to 3
ruin, and to the ruin of tbe country. E.e will
now recognize the Secretary of War, vhom 1
body and whom Congress has declared U
the legal Secretary of War, and while he
appointed a secretary ad interim, bil dare
recognize him, and thus to-day the Thole
chinery of the War Department ie stop]
Large numbers of the gallant office rs of v
army whom you have confirmed, cam ot rec<
their commissions because be wiT not is
them through the proper channel Yet T
this chaotic state of affairs-with the wheel
government clogged-yon are asked to g
him forty days in which to answer the chai
which have been laid against him, Forty da
as long a time as it took God to destroy
whole world; and then, after the forty dayi
?ranted, the learned and subtle co ansel v
y all tbe means in their power, delay
course of justice as much longer a) they i
Tbe pulse of the nation beats inpertur
tion at the course of this oonstitt tiona! 1
anomalous proceeding. When Congress ste
its pulse beats feebly; when Congre- s goes
its pulse beats freer. Everything is at a sta
still tbe spring business is paraljzud, and
confidence can be felt until this matter wb
is engaging tbe attention of Cong:-ess is s

flutterings of the pub he pulse by bringing t]
respondent to justice, from which Gol sena b

under his oath urges that he cann Dt prone:

it is essential. God forbid that we should d

dulgence consistent with the pu bbc safe
We ask thai no more should be -equired
tbe part of the respondent than was required
the managers, we are perfectly 'riling ot
selves to be guided by the same ruin.
Tbe great act for which the rerpondent
arraigned here was committed on the 21st
February; the House of Representatives dei
with it on the 22d; on the ?th of ll arch we,
managers, appeared here at your 'car and pi
eented the articles of impeaebmer t. We a
here, ready to proceed with the tritL We a
ready to emulate the example of th 3 rightec
judge who, for tbe good of bis country,/devot
twenty-two hours a day to the tria.. God gi
ing us strength, we stand here r jady to gi
twenty-two ont of twenty-four hears to th
trial, until it is brought to a conclusion. I
knows all about this matter-knowt more tbi
we do now-and we ask that we bu allowed
go on with the trial.
Pardon one other simple suggestion. I
hoped that hereafter no man won id say tb
tbe charges upon which tba ai shies "of 11
peaobment were brought are frivol sus, unsu
??tai. tia ted, and devoid of respect ability. V
have the highest authority that tbny are otbe
wise. Here we have the spectacle of learn?
counsel, eminent lor their legal acumen, coo
ing in here and averring on their word th:
the charges are so crave and im] ?ort ant thi
it will require at least forty day 1 to ans wi
them. So grave, so serious are thuy, that tb
able and eminent counsel confess tl eir inabilil
to properly reply to them in less than fort
lithe minds of the Senate wert now nut t
tbe true poise, justice must besa tinned by a
immediate trial. The country waits quiet, tb
country needs quiet, and it can on? y be secure
by a speedy termination of this q aestion I
siter a fair bearing of the char tes, tbe res
pondent is adjndged not guilty and goes bei
oe it so; the country will then have quiet; if b
is. found guilty, let it so be; the country wi
then have quiet. Let us deal with this matte
as one in which the life of the nation bangs ii
the scale. No ?nea trial ever engaged the at
tention of tbe world before.
Mr. Nelson, as one of the co ?nsel for tb
President of the United States, hud in comic;
here endeavored to divert bis mind of any ide:
that he was about to engage in a political dis
enssion, but that be was to appeal before a tri
bunal of men who are sworn as judges, not a;
partisans. Having thus come ber ;, ne was un
der the impression that there wa j much f orci
in some of the remarks of the honorable man
ager (Mr. Butler) in reference to Ibis tribunal
It should not be guided by the ron and rign
rules of the law, but should be dsposed to al
low the largest liberty, not only to the counse
for :ne defence, but to the managers of th<
House of Representatives; that ii should no
stand upon forms of evidence or t< chnica! rnlei
that prevailed in other courts. Instead o'.
this, every one would say that t was propel
and right that much mor9 liberty should be
allowed by the Senate of tbe natic n.
What do we ask for and on behalf of th?
President of the United States? We ask sim?
ply time for bis defence, and ic this mattel
and upon all kindred questions, upon whose
judgment must the President rely except upon
that of his counsel, who are best presumed te
know when he is ready to answer, or ready tc
proceed to trial ? Now, we have leserted here
unon our professional honor, in tbe presence
of this Senate, in the presence ot the House ol
Representatives, and in tbe presence of the
whole world, that it will require ibe number oi
days ot preparation stated in tie paper nre
sented to tbe court. Are these cfc arges against
tbe nighest officer in the land 0 oe rushed
through with railroad speed, an 1 without the
same time fer preparation that wc uid be accord?
ed to any criminal in the land ? He did not be?
lieve tho Senate would refuse t ae time asked
for. He knew tba: ibis honorable Senate would,
in justice to themselves and to tho country they
represent, conduct this whole investigation in
such a w:iy as to stamp the impression of honor
and justice upon their memories fer all time.
This is an exalted tribunal, and he felt an in?
creased pride in his country that they were en?
abled to assemble hero for zhc. purpose they
did, .ind in the way they did. It is an unusual
spectacle, and one to be ever remembered, that
a ruler of a people, when arraigned in proper
form, by the representatives of tee people,
comes here peacefully to answer the charges
preferred against him; and he comes, too. with
confidence that this august tribunal will deal
with him in all justice and honer. He hoped
the time asked by counsel tor the accused
would be given,and that this whole proceeding
would bc c;nduc;ed with due gravity and deco?
Mr. Conkling desired to amend the pending
motion by tbe following order:
Ordered, teat unlees otherwise ordered, the
trial of the pending impeachment shall proceed
immediately after the replicat: on to th e an?
swer shall be filed.
Mr. Bingham said be was inntructed by the
managers to say that the order of Mr. Conk?
ling met with their hearty ipprovaL He
would call tbe attention of the court to the fact
that a similar order waa made at the impeach?
ment of Judge Chase. Tho nanagere would
leave this whole nutter with 'he Senate, but,
without intending any disre spect, be would
say that the action oi thia lody bad taken
them somewhat by surprise. TLC House of
Representatives asked tnat no delay should in?
terpose between the people c-i the United
States und the Pr?sident, who was on trial,
and it therefore strs.k them wita surprise that
such a proposition as thu should be made by
a member ol the court, when no application
for it uad oecn made by thc accused. It is
time a motion was made lor a delay of forty
days in which to dis an answer, and the Senate,
hav.Eg fired the day when the answer shouid
be ii:ed. -it might have rested 'here, and let the
coTinsci ?or thc- a??w?d .stow CR?S? ft* a
farther postponement. He saw no good reason
for the postponement of this question. If the
President be innocent, the fact will soon be
known to the country and to the world, and the
accused has a right to, and must have, a speedy
deliverance, ana the country must be relieved
of this excitement But if, on the other hand,
the President is guilty of the great crimes
charged against him, no one in this Senate or
out of it would wish him an hour longer to
hold and disgrace the place which has been
held by the noblest and oest in the land. We
do. not wish to act with any indecent haste
upon this subject, but at the same time we do
not wish to be subjected lo any unreasonable
The question was then taken on Mr. Conk
hug's order as an amendment to Mr. Sher?
man's order, and it was agreed to by a vote of
forty yeas to ten nays.
On motion of Mr. Howard, the court ad?
journed until Monday, March 23d.
