THE PEESTDENT'S TBIAL-ABGUMENT BY JUDGE
CUB TIS-GENERAL THOMAS ON THE STAND
THE MANAGEB8 DEFEATED.
WASHINGTON, April 10.-Nothing was done
in either house previous to the impeachment
trial. In the Senate Judge Curtis proceeded
with his speech, and concluded at half-past 2
In the course of bis argument on the theory
and practice followed in vacancies and appoint?
ments, Judge Curtis claimed that the evidence
would show several instances corresponding
with those of Stanton and Thomas. He insist?
ed that Thomas was duly appointed, the ap?
pointment requiring the President's nomina?
tion and commission. He characterized the
allegation that no vacancy existed as begging
. the question. The legal vacancy existed the
moment Stanton received the letter. Recapi?
tulating bis argument, Judge Cartis claimed
that the managers had failed to show that the
President had violated the constitution and
laws. He then proceeded to argue the charges
in relation to conspiracy. The fourth and
sixth articles charge violation of the laws of
1861. He read the law, and said its provisions
applied to the States and Territories, but were
inoperative in the District of Columbia.
He did not, however, rest on this techni?
cality, bat argued tha ; in law the preliminary
movements of a principal or his agent, to bring
before a court a private claim, purged their
actions of conspiracy. Judge Cartis claimed
that this was applicable, in a broader sense, to
public rights. The relations of a superior and an
inferior officer also precluded the idea of con?
spiracy. He would answer the fifth and seventh
articles in connection with the 10th, in neither
of which was the President charged with the
violation of any law. The ninth article was dis?
proved by the testimony of General Emory,
who swore that he had introduced an objec?
tionable topic, and had drawn out the Pres;- :
It would be shown in proof that the Presi?
dent sent for Emory for a different purpose
from that alleged in the article.
Tj] arguing the tenth article, Judge Curtis. '
discussed impeachable oQences. Withotit
vexing the ears of senators with prece?
dents from the middle ages, he would i
refer to the provisions of the constitution,
whose framers knew qrute as much as the
men who lived in the times of the Planta
gen?ts. He also cited old English laws and 1
the Federal sedition laws, showing that troth- I
fol utterances, howev&r offensive, were not <
punishable. The peculiar manner in which '.
this charge was brought showed that Congress
had resolved itself into a school of manners.
Judge Curtis insisted that telling the truth
about officers was not an offence against the '
law, and that truth had not been questi oned in
making this case.
When Gen. Thomas was called for the de- 1
fence, he was stopped by the prosecution ]
while describing his interview with the Presi
dent when tho orders for the removal of Stan- '
ton and his own appointment were handed him.
The objections were elaborately argued, by
Stanbery and Evarts for the defence and But?
ler and Bingham for the prosecution.' Chief 1
Justice Chase submitted the question, and the
managers were defeated by a vote of42tol0. 1
Cameron, Chandler, ConnesB, Craighan, Drake,
Harlau, Howard, Nye, Ramsay, Fair and Sum?
ner broke ranks for the first time on this ques?
The testimony of Gen. Thomas elicited noth- '.
ing new, beyond that the President had not in?
structed him to use force. When he (Thomas) j
was arrested, he went first to the President
who said that was right, for the case was now
in court, where he wanted it.

the Cabinet officers.

According to previous announcement, an ad?
journed meeting of the delerjstes from the
various Democratic associations of the district
?vas held at Abbeville Courthouse on Monday
last. The Hon. A. Burt, on behalf of the dele?
gation to Columbia, read the proceedings of
the convention, and made an earnest and elo?
quent speech in support of the principles an?
nounced by that body.
Upon the conclusion of Mr. Burt's speech a
committee of thirteen was appointed by the
chair io nominate a ticket for the State Legis?
The committee then retired, and during
their absence the meeting was addressed by
Gen. McGowan in one of his best efforts.
Li conclusion, he said :
He had been elected to the Thirty-ninth
Congress, but was not allowed to take his seat.
He was not conscious of being deficient in
patriotism. He had certainly never been con?
victed of treason, and believed he could not be
before any fair "and intelligent tribunal on the
continent. Possibly such apolitical tribunal as is
now 6ittin g in judgment on the President of the
United States might write the verdict of "guil?
ty,'" but it would proclaim to future ages, not
his guilt, but their own infamy. He obeyed
the laws of his State, and by her orders parti?
cipated in the war. Whatever othera may say,
he had certainly never violated any law or or?
der of South Carolina. "That was the most
unkindest cut of all when the well-beloved Bru?
tus waB stabbed 1" He felt that he was fully
the peer and equal of any member of the Forty
ninth Corgres8, in fidelity to principle, truth?
fulness of Character, and love ol country ! He
waa not a candidate for office, like the strolling
orators, cf all climes, nations and colors, who
are traversing the country and stirring up the
worst passions of prejudice and ignorance. He
would no: turn on his heel for any office in the
Sift of th<i people of America. He'would rather
efend the President, now badgered bv "mon?
grel puppy, whelp and hound," than to he his
successor. But il his name was thought ne?
cessary to organize the ?fenaervatives and to
promote good government, not only that, but
all that he had or hoped to be, was at the dis?
posal of his fellow-citizens.
The following nominations were then unani?
mously adopted :
For the Senate : Bev. J. N. Young.- For the
House of Representatives: Dr. George W.
Pressly, F. A. Connor, Robert A. Fair, J.
Marion Lattimer, James C. Willard.
The Enterprise speaks as follows of the per?
Bons who addressed the Republicon meeting
held at the Courthouse on Friday last :
Major Corbin made a temperate and argu?
mentative address, uttering nothing that cou ld
be complained of as vindictive in spirit or in
flammatory lo bis colored hearers. We must
say, in justice to him, that the character of his
speech was respectful to the white people of
the State who differ from him, and calculated
to encourage an amicable spirit among the
freedmen towards then- late masters.
Mr. F. J. Moses, Jr., was a miniature An?
thony, discoursing of sweet Ctesars' wounds,
and Dogging his good friends, sweet friends,
the negroes, not to be stirred up to any flood
Mr. Chamberlain declaims very well. We
were sorry to see a good deal of bitterness
manifested by him in the tone and temper of
his remarks, although his counsel to the blacks
was pacific; it was not the best calculated to
produce peaceable fruits.
DeLarge is a small man, has been educated,
was always a freeman, we believe, and shows
politeness in his manner. He was raised in
Charleston. His manner of speaking is cor?
rect, in the main, as moBt educated men, and
he evidently has a kind disposition, contrast?
ing, as we thought in this respect, favorably
with the speaker who preceded him.
The Buena Vista Democratic club has re?
solved that it is the duty of every man who
has not registered, and who can register, to do
so, go to the polls at the approaching elections
and vote against the Constitution recently
made at Charleston, and at the same time vote
for members of Congress, Legislature and
other State officers.*
Warren D. Wilkes has declined the* nomina?
tion of the "Union Republican Party" for the
A "grand rally" of the Democracy took place
at Columbia on Wednesday overling, and was
addressed by Col. J. P. Thomas and others.
Capt. Bachman said that the Southern whites
could never forget the colored people for their
faithfulness, when all the young men were ab?
sent in the army.
The following is takenjfrom the report pub?
lished in the Ph cenix :
James G. Gibbes, Esq., the " irrepressible,"
was then introduced; he was warmly received,
and his truthful sentiments loudly applauded.
Col. A. C. Haskell, a gallant soldier in war
and a christian gentleman in peace, was next
Eresented. He invoked his colored hearers to
e faithful, and put their trust in their old
friends. The colored men, many of them, had
faith in their old masters, and it has been fre?
quently illustrated. He knew that, so far as
he was concerned, he had always treated the
colored man humanely and justly. He asked
the colored men present if they would not sus?
tain bim, when one of them replied, " No, we
won't trust any white man." Col. Haskell
informed the * impertinent fellow that
he was addressing himself to those
who were disposed to be honest and just, and
not to the class that he suprosed that indi?
vidual belonged to-the class that the whites
would not trust-which hod the effect of
silencing "Mr. No-Trast." He closed his re?
marks by saving it was singular that many of
the colored men were disposed to support men
who were formerly cruel slave-owners-who it
was known used the lash unmercifully, and
those who had proved themselves traitors and
perjurers. He advised them to vote for true
white men of the South, but to avoid those
who'were on the fence-who dare not declare
for one side or the other.
This meeting was a success in every sense
:>f the term. An immense crowd of white
md colored persons was in attendance, and
?verytbing passed off pleasantly.
The Conservative mass meeting held in
lorkville on Monday, was a great success. On
he day previous to the meeting, says the En
[uirer, the people from distant sections of the
listrict began to pour in, and by ll o'clock on
donday, as large an assemblage of white cr?- |
:ens were gathered in the courthouse square ;

For Representatives-Peter Garrison, of Ebe
lezer; Dr. A. P. Campbell, of New Centre; J.

The following resolutions were then adopted: ;

the same day, ex-Governor Pickens presided.
General Bonham introduced a preamble and
resolutions, which were adopted. The pream?
ble affirms that the people of this State have
ever belonged to the State Rights Democratic
party, that the great mass of the American
people are at least Conservative and Demo?
cratic, and that there is co reason why the
South should not freely unite in an honest
endeavor to secure a faithful and wise admin?
istration of the Federal Government. The
following are the principal resolutions:

A MAMMOTH BOCK FACTORY.
THE NEW ESTABLISHMENT OF APPLETON & CO.
THE GREATEST PDBLI8HNG CONCERN TN THE
Among the great comnsrcial Dames of the
world, probably not one las become a more
frequent "household word' than that of Ap?
pleton & Co., of New York. There is scarcely
a family in the United Stats, a student, or a
school boy, whose library-whether consisting
of stately works of Bcienceand art; of poetry,
romance, history or travel of classic lore, fairy
tales or the illustrated aelodiee of Mother
Goose; or of the humbler Webster's Spelling

Thirty years ago the finn occupied a portion
of a building in what is now known as the

then regarded as the largest ant most superb

"down town." The beginning of another de?

time into vast and capacious premises, "rn

Such, however, has been the progress of the
age, the increase of general intelligence, the
growth of the people, and the appetite for
popular works, that a fourth and still greater
change bas been required. Tirs time it has
taken the shape of an immense 'book factory,"
embracing more than a million of cubic feet.
The new establishment is located in Brooklyn,
near the Naval Hospital, covers the four sides
of a square, and, with its great tower-like
structures, ?B mighty gates of oak and iron,
and general castellated appearance, no stretch
of the imagination is needed to recognize a
similitude to some or the feudil strongholds
Some idea of the capacity of :he establish?
ment and the variety of operations which en?
gage the labors of ita hundreds of busy work?
ers may be gathered hom the statement of a
The first apartment to which the visitor is
introduced is known as the "white stock
room," where thousands of reams are piled
awaiting their turn to be transformed into
books. Beyond this is a long s tret ch of vaults,
dark as the catacombs, where ten thousand
boxes of stereotyped plates are labelled and
stowed away, ready, at a moment's notice, for
some extra edition of a popular book. Great
names are inscribed on some of these parcels,
but great names do not always sell.
Directly over the stock room is a room for
pressing and imparting to paper the smooth
and sr lossy Borface with which oil our readers
are familiar. This is done by means of five
powerful hydraulic presses. Adjoining this is
the wetting room, where the paper is damp?
ened by machinery previous to its transfer to
the press department. Here, nineteen presses,
adapted to every variety of work, mane the
noisy music of the place. In moving among
this ingenious but insensate machinery one
cannot help noticing the bright looking girls
who stand beside each of the presses like a
keeper beside an elephant, and feed Hs rave?
nous maw continually.
When printed, the damp sheets ore borne to
the drying room, where a temperature of
seventy degrees is preserved by steam pipes.
A Little drawbridge connects the pressroom
with the bindery, and you follow the car that
trundles over it the last thousand of Muhl
bach, Dickens or Webster. You enter an
apartment so long that, in the perspective, it
seems to dwindle to a point. Soft throbs of
machinery greet the ear. They are the pulsa?
tions of a score or more of steam "Alla***,"
which perform their worK wnn a Bpeed and
accuracy unattainable by human hands. One
hundred and seventy-five girls are here em?
ployed, feeding, stitching and preparing the
incipient volumes for the sturdier hands of
man. On this floor, also, is a room full of ex?
quisite prints for the illustrated works of the
Up stairs by a steam elevator. You see a
steam chopping machine which turns out
three thousand covers an hour of any size. In
the next room are a hundred men stamping,
cutting, case-making and forwarding. Three
thousand "Encyclopedias,'' nix thousand
"Marie Antoinettes," ten thousand "Copper?
fields,'' and twenty thousand of Appletons'
"School 8erie;>," can be delivered from this de?

Another and the last flight, by the elevator,
landa tho passenger on the fourth floor, the
main part of which is devoted to packing Spol?
iera. Cornells Geographies, Quackenbo6s'
Arithmetics. Harkness' Grammars, and the
other popular school-books of the Louae.
About fifteen thousand Spellers are here boxed,
and aent forth daily. At the beginning of thc
year, the demand for these Spoilers poured in
so thick and fast from all parts of the country
(particularly the South), that the Apple-tons
were a half million copies in arrears ; out, by
steady pulling, night and day, they havb
caught up, and are now prepared to fill orders
with dispatch. This packing-room is one of
the busiest places in the factory. Seventy-five
men ure here employed. In an adjacent room
is a curious machine. It is a lithographic
press, doing the same work as well by steam
as it Ujj*d tu be done by band, and a great
deal faster. On this press the maps for Apple
tons' Series of Geographies are printed,
flfcll this busy hive is animated by lightning.
In other words, a private electric telegraph
connects the Brooklyn factory with the Now
York wholesale house and counting room, so
that the thought of ono minute at one place
may be instantly put in process of execution at
As a whole, it mav be confidently asserted
that the premises above described are without
a superior of their kind in the world.
A word more concerning the Appletons and
we are done-and it is a word that should com?
mend them to tho people at large, and especi
cally to thc parents and teachers of the Sooth.
While other book puDlishers have pandered
to the radical tastes of the multitude, and have
flooded the South with schuol books and other
publications aa poisonous to the mind of youth
as the Upas tree to this body, the Appletons
have carefully ignored every word or senti?
ment that could add to the" weight of insult
and misfortune which we have had to endure.
So-called "school histories" are even now in
circulation in the South which describe "Jen".
Davis" as the greatest "felon" ol' modern
times, and are filled with falsehood from cover
to cover. Spelling booka with pictures of auc?
tion b' /cfcs and burning negroes keep alive the
embers ol' the war; and thousands of these
iniquitous publications flood the country and
seek an introduction into our schools. No such
books have ever emanated from the house of
Appleton. On the contrary, their school series
and their classical series for colleges and acad?
emies have been prepared and overlooked oy
high-toned, conscientious men, whose only
aim was to advance the cause of education, to
invest study with attraction, and moke the
school book a source of constant entertain?
It is for these reasons that we conceive it to
bethe duty of the Southern press and people
to encourage, in every poosible way, the intro?
duction ot tho Appleton series into ail of our
institutions of learning-great and small-so
that when our voath drink at the Pierian
Spring they mav not be poisoned by the fetid
waters of what has become worse than Puritan
MR. JOHNSON TELLS ON GRANT.-Speaking
of the charge that he was drunk while on his
Western tour in 1866, Mr. Johnson said to
"Mack," of the Cincinnati Commercial:
"They'll find out, at any rate, that I didn't
drink halt' aa much as one or two others, about
whose condition nobody dares to say a word."
"I think 1 can guess the name of one of
them," said L "Didn't he go from Cleveland
to Detroit, and wasn't it announced with a
great flourish of trumpets that he had left
?our party in disgust r" "Ye6," replied the
'resident, "he went to Detroit; but it wasn't
because he waa disgusted with my pol?tica at
all. In fact, he wasn't in a condition to know
