WASHINGTON, April H.-IN THE HOUSE, Wood?
ward introduced a bill to test the constitu?
tionality of questionable acts of Congress,
which was referred to the Judiciary Committee.
The act provides thal if the Attorney-general
shall bring in any bill vetoed by the President
on the ground of unconstitutionality, and
passed over the veto, before the Supreme
Court on a feigned issue,, the decision of the
Supreme Court on such feigned issue shall be
IN THE SENATE, the managers asked for an
amendment to the rules, whereby each side
might speak without limitation to members.
Howard objected, and the motion goes over.
General Thomas was again on the stand, un?
dergoing a perplexing cross-examination by
Butler. General Sherman was on the stand;
the managers object to the evidence. Another
very sharp contest is pending. ?
Stanbery, Evarts, Butler and Wilson partici?
pated in the debate to-day. Stanbery called j
on the Chief Justice during the debate to stop
Butler's personal aspersions.
In the course of the examination of General
Thomas the fact W*B elicited that the Presi?
dent's woids to him were "go and take chirge
of the War office," instead of "possession of ?
the War office." General Sherman was exam?
ined concerning his interview with the Presi?
dent in December, relative to the War Depart
. ment. Mr. Stanbery said he would prove by
General Sherman that the President wanted
him, Sherman, to toke the War office to secure
a judicial decision of the question. Butler ob?
jected, but Chief Justice Chase ruled that the
question was admissible. The ruling was then
appealed from and rejected by the Senate by a
vote of twenty-three to twenty-eight. Among
the Republicans voting with the minority were
Sumner, Fessenden, Fowler, Sprague, Van
Winkle, Anthony, Grimes, Morgan, Trumbull
and Willey. General Sherman then testified
- that the President had tendered bim the War
Department on two occasions, namely on the
25th of January, and again on the 30th of Jan
During-the examination of General Sher?
man by Mr. Stanbery, the Senate refused to
hear the answers to all the most important
questions put to the witness. Pending the ex?
amination of General Sherman, the Court and
the Senate adjourned.
Politics in the South.
AUGUSTA, April H.-The attention of Gene?
ral Meade being called to the course of Lieut.
Charles T. Johnson, of the 15th Regiment of
Infantry, in arresting Judge Pope, of the Cir?
cuit Court of Calhoun county, Alabama, and
closing the court, owing to difference in con
. struction of the orders with reference to em?
panelling juries, the general commanding
publicly declares his assumption of authority
to arrest as deserving the severest censure.
Meado further says that the object of these or?
ders was not to declare that all juries must be
in part composed of colored men, but simply
to remove the distinction which the laws of the
State in this district made on account of color.
The commanding goneral trusta this disap?
proval will render subordinate officers cautious
to refrain from hasty and unauthorized ex?
ercise of power, vested only in highest mili?
In order that there may be fairness in the
approaching election, General Meade directs
that the ballot-box shall not be opened, or
votes counted, or any information of the pro?
gress of the election be given. When the
polls are closed after voting, the managers
shall select two men of character from the op?
posite party, who shall be permitted to be pres-1
ent at the counting of the ballots, so cs to
witness and verify such countings.

A large Conservative public meeting was held
at the courthouse on the 6th., Hon. James Reed
presiding. A committee consisting of three
colored men and fifteen white men was ap?
pointed to prepare business, who reported
resolutions debouncing secret political or?
ganizations ; pledging adherence to the princi?
ples of the constitution ; denouncing and re?
pudiating the nominations made by the Union
League, and inviting all good mi-a without
reference to class or color, to come forward
and join in sustaining these principles and
securing a proper representation in xhe coun?
cils of the State.
These resolutions were adopted; the nomina?
tions of the Columbia convention were en?

were made :

Governor Manning, after the reading of the
resolutions, enforced their sentiments in an
address of great eloquence and feeling. He
co'inselled his fellow-citizens, in this hour of
gloom and trial, to stand by the principles of
fidelity to the constitution, in which was their
only safety. If it was necessary to suffer for a
time under the rule of the Radical party, to
endure their sufferings and ills with the forti?
tude of men; but never, in the hope of finding
relief, to accept of any delusive terms offered
by men who were establishing an irresponsible
despotism on the ruins of the constitution. He
spoke with great hopefulness of a speedy re?
lief from those enemies of the constitution who
now bold all the powers of the government in
their hands. If we refused to put the yoke of
bondage upon our own necks, there was a sure
and speedy relief awaiting us. With the
success of the great Conservative party, which
was every day gaining strength, the gloom that
overshadowed the country would d.rappear as
the darkness and mists of night before the sun.
A Democratic mass meeting was held at the
courthouse on Monday, and the action of the
Columbia convention was enthusiastically rati?

ASHLEY, THE IMPEACHER.
Mr. Ashley, of Ohio, was the big gun of a
Republican meeting held in Columbia on Fri?
day. The Phoenix dispatches him aB follows:
Mr. Ashley criticized and commended the
Reconstruction acts, suffrage, education,
social equality, etc. He maintained that Con?
gress, on behalf of the successful party in the
late war, had a perfect right to dictate terms
and exact guarantees for future good behavior;
contending that ii was the leud?is who should
bo punished, if punishment was to be inflicted;
but, contrary tc general expectation, punish?
ment had not been meted out. He contended
that the colored man was entitled to suffrage
-here as well as at the North; and when re?
minded that in the State which he represented
(Ohio,) negro suffrage had been voted doT,
declared that "two wrongs did not make one
right; 'he believed in universal suffrage, as a
matter of right; admitted that tbe proposition
had been defeated in his State, but believed
that it wou'd eventually be carried out. Social
equality, he said, had nothing to do with the
ballot-box; a colored man might vote, but by
so doing, he '.vas not brought into intimate
association with the white race. Education
and the ballo'-box were essentially necessary.
He was interrupted repeatedly during his re?
marks, but was not disconcerted, and replied
pleasantly. Sudden showers scattered the
crowd several times, but the speaker remained
firm, proclaiming himself a good Baptist, and
was, therefore, not afraid of a Utile water.
A Nzor.o SOLDIER SHOT AFIEB ESCAPING
FROOI TEE GcAiiD.-The Wilmington Journal
Of Friday last save* : The train on the Wilming?
ton and ' Manchester Railroad yesterday morn?
ing brought to the city e detachment of sol?
diers with a number of prisoners in charge,
which they were conveying from Charleston'to
Fort Macon. Among the prisoners when they
started from Charleston were two negro sof
diesr ot Company C, Fortieth Regiment, who
had been tried for desertion and seutenced to
imprisonment in Fort Macon. When the
train was ene mile this side of Register's De?
pot, aud about eight miles from the city, these
two solders were escorted to a private saloon
oi the car by tbe guard, and jumped through
the window wh:le the train was m motion.
This fact was reported and tho train stopped,
aud two of the guard (both nep,ro soldiers)
? left behind to capture the escaped panie*, if
possible. About ?:n hour afterwards, while
concealed by the side of the road, thev ob
I served the very parties they were in search of
I coming down the track. The guard both lev?
elled their muskets and fired. One of the
prisoners, named Jerry Gales, was struck and
almost instantly killed, the ball entering his
side and passing almost through the bodv.
! The other prisoner was untouched, and turned
and fled. He was pursued and finally surren?
dered, ieari?g to be ?hot. The captured
prisoner and the dead body were both brought
to the city on a hand cor, and the circumstan?

M ARTEELT SPEECH OF MB. CUBITS.
The impeachment trial was more densely
crowded on Thursday than on any preceding
day, and the proceedings were unusually inter?
esting. The correspondent of the Baltimore
Gazette writes on Thursday evening as ?OIIOWB:
"Curtis is to speak to-day" was in every per?
son's month this morning, andlat an early hour
the ticket-holders were wending their way to
the capitol to eecnre favorable seats for hear?
ing the opening speech in defence of President
Johnson. The approaches to and through the
capitol were lined, as before, with liveried po?
licemen, and the Senate chamber presented
nothing new in appearance, except that the
diplomatic gallery was crowded for the first
time during the trial. Heretofore the for?
eign ministers have hesitated about attend?
ing the trial, doubting, as they did, the
propriety of it, in view of the fact that they
regarded impeachment hut a partisan move?
ment against the head of the nation to which
they had been accredited by their respective
governments. Now that his defence has
commenced, they feel no hesitation or deli?
cacy at attending. Mr. Thornton, the English
Minister, although officially the youngest mem?
ber, was the first to enter, followed by Baron
Gerolt, the senior of the corps. Others crowd?
ed in until their Bection of the gallery was full.
The other immense galleries were packed with
a brilliant crowd, two-thirds of whom were
ladies, not likely to listen with much interest
to a dry legal argument. General Sherman
entered the chamber a few moments before the
session opened, and took a conspicuous seat
immediately in front of the Chief Justice, which
he continued to occupy during the whole day,
occasionally passing a word with Senator Stew?
art, of Nevada, who eat at bis left. In this
position the general was the observed of all
A lively conversation was kept up in the
Senate on general topics until the managers
were announced. These entered, not by twos
as before, but in Indian file, Bingham heading
tbe line and Butler playing the part of the tail.
What brought upon him this disgrace no one
could tell It was only known that at the
opening of the last session Bingham and But?
ler entered arm in arm at tbe head of the
managers, and since his efforts in behalf of
impeachment he has been sent to the foot by
Bingham. When the sergeant-at-arms of the
Senate announced the House of Representa?
tives, twenty-four members entered to con?
tinue, "in the name of all the people," their
prosecution of the President for high crimes
and misdemeanors. Stanbery, trim as a blood?
ed racer, entered the main door, and bowing to
the right and to the left as be returned the
salutations of senators, passed up tbe
main aisle and took his accustomed seat.
Curtis, followed by Evarts, Groesbeck and
Nelson, entered a side door, and deposited
himself behind a fearful number of volumes
which had been carefully arranged on the
table. All eves were now turned from Sher?
man to Curtis, and breathing seemed to bc for
the time suspended. On motion of Senator
Johnson, the reading of the minutes was dis?
pensed with. Horror of horrors 1 Butler calls
another witness. Spectators are disgusted.
Wood, carpet-bag man of Alabama and a Union
soldier, is sworn: Had applied to the President
for an office; couldn't get it. President bad
offices onlv for his Wends. Motto evidently
was, -'Justice to all; favors to friends only."'
Stanbery blew this witness sky-high by inqui?
ring if he did not tell his friend Coppeil that
he had been advised it would be to hie interest
to testify against Jhe President. Blodgett,
postmaster at Augusta. Ga., also had his pri?
vate griefs, and after being sworn, told how
the President had suspended him from office
on the 3d of January last, but did not tell the
cause of his suspension. If the game was
worth the trouble, this fact could also be es?
THE OBEAT SPEECH.
Curtis now arose, amid profound silence, and
delivered a speech worthy of his reputation;
and this is the highest compliment which can
be paid it. It was a solid pyramid of legal
granite, with its foundation laid deep and
wide. Step by step he brushed away the
trashy positions of the impeachers, and erect?
ed a lc sting monument to legal ability, strict
justice, and gentlemanly bearing. He held
Senate and galleries spell bound throughout
its delivery. Fessenden, Trumbull, Sher?
man, and such men, scarce., moved in their
places, wnile the speaker con nded the ad?
miration of the impeachers . Twelves. A
singular state of affairs WP s presi t?. Judce
Curtis was evidently on the same s . ?vith the
"managers," for he, too, spoke in: name of
"all the people." and defended the. chosen
representative from the assaults of s ene?
mies. Comments on bis speech woul. e out
of place in this coirespondencc, as tho b|.;eeh
itself will be read by all classes of mon every?
where. Impeachment was dead before. Cur?
tis delivered its funeral oration to-day.
HOW GENEEAL SHET.MAN BEHAVED.
Lieut. Gen. Sherman, who occupied a scalby
Senator Doolittle, never once took his eyes off
Mr. Curtis. When the language of Senator
Sherman, in the debate cn the Tenure-cf-office
bill, that the bill had no reference to the Cabi?
net bfneers of Mr. Johnson, was quoted, Gen.
Sherman looked hard at hid brothel, and the
latter east down his eyes. Thc venerable
Thomas Ewing, whose nomi iation to succeed
Mr. Stanton, is yet unacted on in the Senate,
sat on the other side of Senator Doolittle, nnd
seemed particularly interested in the allusion
to thc debate of last winter.
THE KAPPI COLPAS.
The House of Representatives was construc?
tively present, but ic was there bodily ia the
shape only of about twenty memb?r.T, thc im?
peachment pro:ecdings having so soon lost all
the novelty. Speaker colfax, who sits at tho
head oi' "'his boy:.',*' -?ppears to be in the best
ot humor, no matter what is said or done, and
never fur a moment stops laughing.
TAUE-EBING WITH SENAT JES.
It is reported that the managers of impeach?
ment arc* seeking testimony "to prove that ef?
forts have been made Ly the PresMent to
secure votes of senators for acquittal in thc
impeachment trial. Mr. Johnson, if applied
to, will furnish the manager* with the names
of five persons whom he has employe I for this
purpose, viz : Messrs. Curtis, Stanbery, Evarts
t?rcesbeck and Nelson. Senators are nociiied
that these are the only authorized agents of
the President for tho purppse mentioned. If
the impeachers are desirous of extending the
investigation further, the witnesses can be ob?
tained among radical .Jongre8sm<r:i to prove
that certain sc-called doubtful Senators have
been importuned by advocates of impeach?
ment to secure their votes for conviction.
MR. JOHNSONS CHANCES.
A very intelligent Radical, who is on terms of
great intimacy with many Rad'.c:tl senators, re?
marked: "Curtis is delivering a great speech,
but it might as well be addressed to the Paw?
nee Indians-thc case is jmleed now."' And
such seems to be the opinion entertained in
weil-intormed circles here of both parties, de?
spite al! the attempts made to create a di l'erent
impression. Under that terrible influence of
party pressure, the backbones of those sena?
tors "which needed "stiffening" are being trrad
ually braced up, and no i'car6 are entertained
that they will be able to toe the mark when
