THE OLD FLAG-SHERMAN BEFORE THE MANA?
GERS OF IMPEACHMENT.
WASHINGTON, April li.-Sergeant Bates ar?
rived here at 1 o'clock to-day, and met with
an enthusiastic1 reception.
In consequence of tho illness of Mr. Stan?
bert, the Impeachment Court adjourned until
12 o'clock to-moxrow, with but two dissenting
voices. The adjournment will add eclat to the
reception of Sergeant Bates. It ?6 arrar N
that he is to unfurl his flag, at 2 P. y
the dome of the capitol. ^
fi LATER.-Sergeant Bates crossed the Los g
Bridge this forenoon, and was welcomed to the
capital by Mr. Eldridge, member of Congress
from Wisconsin. Though the weather was un?
favorable there was an immense gathering.
Sergeant Bates wore the jacket and pants pre?
sented him in South Carolina, and ia in excel?
lent health. He was escorted to the White
House, where the President met him at the
threshold, Baying, "All that I want to do is to
welcome you and your flag." After being enter?
tained at the White House he proceeded to toe
Metropolitan Hotel, where quarters had been
provided for him. Thence he proceeded to the
Capitol, where be failed to gain admission.
Leaving tho Capitol be went to the Washing?
ton monument, where Mr. Perrin, of Tennes?
see, made a speech, saying that had Bates car
lied a negro on his shoulders from Vicksburg,
Congress would have allowed him to place the
negro above the Goddess of Liberty which sur?
mounts the dome of the Capitol.
The authorities at the capitol are shifting
the responsibility of having denied admission
The departments will be closed to-morrow in
honor of the unveiling of Lincoln's statue.
General Sherman was before the impeach?
ment managers to-day, who, having power to
examine witnesses under oath without the re?
straints of court rules, elicited all the facts not
yet known to the public.

WOMEN AND DRESS.-Alphonse Karr writes
of the ladieB less poetically that Michalet; both
seem to understand the sex pretty well, but
their experience may have been different.
Lu a woman's life, everything leads io a nrw I
dress; every circumstance is marked af e. it-w
dress, and the dress is the most important
part. A girl is going to be married-a dress.
For a moment her heart is filled with love,
thoughts of an entirely new existence, and of a
long separation from her parents. Everything
disappears before the ail absorbing question o?
the wedding dress. A relation dies. The grief
of the ladies is violent; but it is soon checked,
for the mourning has to be thought of. What
are the people wearing? What is the most
fashionable mode of testifying one's sonow?
It is necessary to go to the linen draper's, to
the dress makers, to the milliner's, and in a
little while they are so thoroughly occupied
that there is quite an end to lamentations, un?
less, however, the dress doesn't happen to fit,
or the bonnet to be too much or loo little off
the head. But if the dress ie made of some
new material, if the bonnet is becoming, then
they experience an involuntary glow-they are
triumphant, they are very happy.

Our correspondent writes ns under date of
the 11th inst., as follows:
A short paragraph in your issue of the 8th
has a6ton>' 13d the good citizens of this un?
usually quiet town in no small degree. It is
headed "Disturbance in Chester." Your in?
formant has therein asserted that one J. L.
Neagle, of York, was prevented by certain vio?
lent demonstrations from delivering an oration
on the great principles involved in the new
constitution. It is the first intimation we have
had of such an intention on his part. There
was no gathering of the colored population to
welcome him, and not the slightest symptom
of any attempt to get up a public meeting.
His excited imagination, and a known pro?
pensity of his brotherhood for martyrdom,
must have suggested the material for your
paragraph. It is true that upon his landing
from the cars, an individual of very pronounced
opinions informed him that he was a very dirty
scoundrel, and perhaps even used stronger
language; but this was merely a private con?
ference, and as Neagle made no reply to this
assertion, it ia taken for granted that its truth
was admitted. Your prophecy that certain
Radical orators would make a descent upon us
proved to be true.
It is evident that these propagators of the
new light must have been in dread of certain
supposed irate Chesterians-perhaps of that
funeral body known as the Ku-Klux-for their
arrival was preceded ? day by that of a compa?
ny of the eighth infantry. This advance guard
were summoned here by reliable information
that we were in a very insurrectionary condi?
tion-so much so that the private soldiers said
they expected to go to fighting as soon as
they were landed from the cars. "What must
have been the surprise of this formidable host
when we were all found in a state of most pro?
We may add to the above, that the informa?
tion which prompted the penning of the para?
graph referred to, was sent to the city by
Neagle himself, and probably for no other
reason than to create alarm and secure a de?
gree of newspaper notoriety, which he could
not acquire by what passes for brains.
A Radical public meeting has been held at
Bennettsville. A considerable number of blacks
were present, who were addressed by J. W.
Maxwell and Samuel Dixon, colored, and by B.
F. Whittemore. The latter made a calm, tem?
perate speech, confined himself strictly to par?
ty issues, and refrained from employing the
style of invective so usual with Radical speak?
ers. It appears to be generally conceded that
the Republicans will carry tho district.
On the 11th instant a large meeting was held
at Florence, for the organization of a Demo?
cratic club, of which G. S. Williamson, Esq.,
was appointed president, and Colonel A. H.
Waring and Dr. Edmund Porcher, vice-presi?
The meeting was eloquently addressed by
Chancellor Inglis. The resolutions adopted
are expressive of the same principles which
have been asserted by other Democratic or?
ganizations and published in THE NEWS.
A BALTI?IOREAN"S LUPBESSIONS OF CHABLES
TON-THE CACSE OF EDUCATION-AN ELO?
QUENT APPEAL.-The large-hearted editor of
the Baltimore Gazette writing from Charleston
under date of April 4, says:
If the kind contributors in Baltimore to
the parochial schools in this city could
see for themselves the happy progress of
the work they haveso largely helped to
inaugurate, their hearts would be great?
ly gladdened. By invitation of the Rev.
A. roomer Porter, to whose zeal and energy '
these schools owe their origin, I visited tho
one which he opened in January last, and to
which he especially devotes himself. Four
hundred little children were being educated
there, many, or perhaps most of whom would
have grown np m ignorance but for his exer?
tions. It was pitiful to see these children
marching from the church to the schoolhouse,
singing their morning hymn of praise, while
the bare feet of some and the patched and tat?
tered garments of others showed how little of
this world's goods they had to be thankful for
and how necessary to their future well-being
was ihe help extended to them by your people.
Adjoining the school-building is a home for
boys from the interior of the State whose
parents have been ruined by the war. It hae
now over forty inmates, most of them bearing
the names of the worthiest and most distin?
guished citizens of South Carolina. These
boys are not only educated, but are supported
and clothed also. Everything about the estab?
lishment, though very plain, was in perfect
order and scrupulously clean. Mr. Porter has
certainlyt made the most of his limited means,
and has done wonders within the brief space
of ten or twelve weeks. The neceseitv of ex?
tending these schoolo in the South, and of do?
ing it at once, is painfully felt. Numbers of
boys between the ageB ot ten and fifteen years
are fearfully backward in their education, and
then- parents are unable to do more than
clothe and feed them. In a few years more it
will be too late to remedy their deficiencies, and
they will pass into society 6o ignorant aa to be
unfitted for the higher professions, and carry?
ing with them a bitter feeling of mortification.
Ia the much-taxed charity of Baltimore ex?
hausted? Let us hope not. Our brethren
here have borne the brunt of a noble struggle
and have been discomntted They are free?
men no longer, and it is with difficulty that
many of them can earn by the sweat of their
brows the bread which the conquered alwavs
eat in bitterness. They bear these trials with
heroic patience, but it must be an agonizing
thought to many of them that their children
mav grow up so illiterate that they must inevi?
tably take, when they advance in life, far lower
stations than they would otherwise occupy.
Judging by what little I saw of a lar?e negro
school, the" black children are, through one
acency or another, being verv well car?d for.
The children of our own race look appealingly
to their friends in the North for aid. Ihe
crisis is an all-important one. Baltimore,
open-handed as she has been, can doubtless
spare a little more out of ber abundance, and
that little contributed to this charity will be
productive of incalculable good. Over forty
applications for admission to the school are
now pending, and many more will be soon pre?
sented. But want of means to support the
children prevents their reception, and they
still plead to be taught, and many of them to
be clothed and fed. The good deeds of Balti?
more are not forgotten here. Cnn sae not add
one more to tho generous and sympathising
acta wh;.ii have Liado her. name already a
househ'. Id word among this people ?
. NEGBO F.VLE.-The following is a pic?
ture drawn by a Northern P.adical newspaper
ot the negro rule in St. Domingo, arter they
have had fifty years of experience as rulers of
about the ? irest Bpot of earth :
The latest news from St. Domingo is that
the country is m anarchy, and the prisons are
tull. Of course there must be some sort of
governing force in existence to keep the pri?
sons full; but this is -probably about the full
extent of its powers. It is painful to see Buch
a rich and charming part of the world given up
to ruin and savagery. It is grievous to see
the control of such a country in the hands of
such a people. But we see no help for it. And
we mav rest satisfied that if there be any
lower depths of human degradation than that
which tfiey bave reached, it will not require
them many years to sink to it. If the popula?
tion would resort to cannibalism, and devour
each other out of existence, it would probably
be the best thing that could happen.
GLIMPSES OF THE GREAT TRIAL
TP. AITS OF THE MEN WHO CONDUCT
[Correspondence of the Boston Advertiser.]
WASHINGTON, April 7_Thc most prominent
feature in the impeachment trial, which strikes
the habitual attendant upon its eessions, after
the sensation of novelty has worn away, is the
leadership which bas fallen to General Butler.
To those who remember the incidents of his
entrance into Congress only a year ago, when
his apparent arrogance and disposition to push
himself forward received a decided and em?
phatic snub from the majority in the Republi?
can caucus; and to those who remember that
much more recently, when impeachment was
decided on in February, he had no place OD
the committee to prepare the articles, and that
the additional articles which he recommended
were promptly rejected by the House upon an
almost contemptuous hint from Mr. Bingham;
to those who know how his avowed and per?
sistent hostility to General Grant and his
unfortunate financial manifestoes have caused
him to be regarded with disfavor by the lead?
ing men of his party here; this is especially
remarkable and almost incomprehensible.
For in the trial of the impeachment pre?
ferred by the House ot Representatives against
Andre-* Johnson. General Butler is the man of
the hour. He not only opened the case; he
has managed the case since it has been opened.
The managers chosen by the House ara seven
in number; they differ from the other mem?
bers of the House mainly in being exemplary
in their attendance at the trial. The sergeant
at-arms gives them a special announcement as
they enter; and the eonorous voice of Mr. For?
ney, as he reads the journal, informs the as?
sembly that "Mr. Bingham, Mr. Thaddeus
Stevens, Mr. Butler, Mr. Boutwell, Mr. Logan,
Mr. James F. Wilson and Mr. Thomas Wil?
hams entered and took the seats assigned
them." But here the part taken by six out
of the seven, so far as the Senate or the pub?
lic in the gallery can see, substantially
ends. Mr. Butler calle for the witnesses, Mr.
Butler examines the witnesses, Mr. Butler ex?
plains the purpose of testimony, Mr. Butler
answers the objections of the counsel on the
other side, Mr. Butler supplies the amusing
retorts which enliven the occaeion, Mr. Butler
bullies the Chief Justice, Mr. Butler announces
that the case is closed. The President's coun?
sel-whether? Mr. Evarte, Mi*. Curtis or Mr.
Stanbery is speaking-say "we;" Mr. Butler
says "I." If Mr. Butler has not finished his
oysters when the fifteen minutes' recess is
over, the case waits for bim; if he is ready the
trial proceeds, whether half the senator's are
in their places or not. In short, so far as ap?
pears to the looker on from day to day, it is
the people of the United States proceeding
against an oflending President through Benja?
min F. Butler, their spokeeman and prose?
BUTLER'S TB AITS.
When thus much is understood, it is easy
for those who are familiar with General But?
ler's traits to imagine many of the aspects of
the trial in which be has made himself the
central figure. He ia remarkable for positive?
ness and aggressive disposition, for readiness
in an emergency and never-failing resource;
for an endurance and animation which know
no fatigue, and for that quality which, for the
lack ot a gentler name, I must call impudence.
He is not remarkable for grace, for fairness, or
for any amenity or courtesy of manner in pub?
lic life. Hence his relation with those he con?
siders opponents is that of unmistakable, open,
unrelenting war. He never loses an opportu?
nity to dre a shot at the President's counsel,
at the President himself (which he commonly
styles "Andrew Johnson" with no ornamental
title), at Chief Justice Chase, whom he se?
lects as an especial target, or at Mr. Reverdy
Johnson, whom he has singled out from
among the senators for a sharp thrust when?
ever the occasion serves. I have tele?
graphed yon some samples of his method
of treating Mr. Chase. I recall one or two
Btill more marked instances of his course
with the counsel on the other side. When
the direct examination of Colonel Moore'
Mr. Johnson's private secretary, was com?
pleted, Mr. Butler turned to the inspection of
some papen upon his table. Colonel Mooro
patiently waited on the stand. "Are you
through with the witness?" inquired courtlv
Mr. Stanbery at length. "When I am through
with the witness," sharply retorted the honor?
able manager, "I will let you know;" and then
after a silent pause of abont ten seconds, " I
am nov through with tho witness." "So are
wo," said Mr. Stanbery-but the premeditated
terseness of his dismiss:'. 1 lost all effect in tho
sensation caused by the unpremeditated rough?
ness of the gentleman from Massachusetts.
During the examination of oue of thc reporters
as to the Cleveland speech, Mr. Butler inquired.
"Was there a bandving of epithets back and
forth between the President and the crowd ?"
"We object to that sort of queaton," said Mr.
Evatts, "the witness can state what was said."
Mr. Butler repeated his question with emphasis.
"We object that that is not a proper question,"
persisted Mr. Evatts; "the witness is askr'd
whether there was a bandying of epithets.
Nobody knows what a bandying means,
nobody knows what epithets means. The
witness can only testify aa to what waB
said." " I withdraw the question for a
moment," said Mr. Butler. "Now, sir, (to
the witness), do you know what bandving
means?" There being Borne sign of further
objection, Mr. Butler sharply continued, "I am
simply askinc vou to explain a word the Presi?
dent's counsel do not understand." Again,
this morning, the reports ot the Cleveland
speech of the President having been received
tvs evidence, in spite of a good deal of remon?
strance from Mr. Evatts, Mr. Butler introduced
proof of a newspaper report of the St. Louis
speech, and at ita conclusion said, "I propose
to offer ?his paper as evidence, if there is no
objection, and, also, if there is objection."
There is more in the manner of these inci?
dental displays than in the words: but those
of youl- readers who have seen Mr. Butler in a
criminal court can supply the manner from
their own imaginations, with the assurance
that none of the sharp points are polished off
in the present trial on account of the magni?
tude of the occasion. Whether such little
corruscations are anything for the people of
the loyal States to be proud of in the conduct
of their case against their Chief Magistrate,
it is not for me to say. I but strive to mirror
the scene as it exists ?ts faithfully as I can.
I have hinted that Mr. Butler is lacking in
grace. Fortunately he is uot sensitive nor bash?
ful and does not mind the deficiency very much.
Yesterday a heavy bound file of the Chronicle
newspaper was brought into court, in the
course of the examination as to one of the
President's speeches Hierein reported. Mr.
Butler set the huge volume slanting deskwise
on a chair. Searching for a passage in the
speech, during a momentary lull in the pro?
ceedings, he stooped into the open pages in
such angular fashion that his head, arms and
shoulders were entirelv hidden from view. I
should need to call in the aid of a special art?
ist to give vou the precise attitude; but it was
something like a huge bumble-bee working his
way into a gigantic flower; and the effect was
so comical that a ripple of laughter ran all
round the galleries, and even made itself man?
ifest on the floor of the chamber. The inno?
cent object of the merriment popped up pres?
ently to see what the chuckling was all
about; and not at all disconcerted .'when the
discovery was made, removed the book to a
flat table*, where the droll position was avoided.
THE COUNSEL FOR THE PRESIDENT.
It ie generally acknowledged that Mr. John?
son has done wisely for once, in the selection
of hiB representatives in this greit ordeal of
his official career. The hst ls smaller in num?
ber than that of the managers on the other
side, but the division of labor, as apparent in
the proceedings in the courtroom, is more
equal. The working member of the prosecu?
tion, as I have written you, is Mr. Butler- the
working members on the other side are three,
Messrs. Stanbery, Curtis and Evatts-while
Mr. Nelson evidently has a part to perform,
which includes the steady taking of notes in
long hand, during each day's proceedings, as
if the sneers of Mr. Evatts at the accuracy of
reporters were all in good faith, and the labors
of the stenographers of the Globe close by, and
of the bard-worked youth of the same profes?
sion at tho President's own table, were quite
unworthy of trust.
Mr. Stanbery has the place of honor at the
head of the table, and is evidently, in fact as
well as in theory, the leader of Mr. Johnson's
defence. He is a tall gentleman; not actually
so slender in figure as he is madt 1*0 look bj
his habit of buttoning his coat tghtly about
him like an arm? chaplain, and'by his high
black stock. He* is exceedingly graceful in
manner, with the peculiar digninel suavity of
the gentleman of tue old school, aid a certain
air of sweet simplicity about him vhich gives
both point and probability to a eory current
in social circles. This is to the (fleet that a
note addressed to his Bon, requeuing bim to
I join a party to learn the "Gernan,' fell by
some mistake into the hands of tie elder Mr.
Stanberv, who answered very politely with an
expression of gratitude for the reqiest and of
regret that his professional engagements a6
Attorney General would prevent nisattempting
just now the acquirement of a new language.
Vet Mr. Stanbery can be both sharp and stern
when the ?cession calls for it; and a^ter a close
studvof'lris bearing io the Senate chamber,
one is led to give more credit thaa would at
first glance be accorded to the etttement of
those familiar with his home reputation-that
his strong point is not unlike General Butler's
own, in the faculty of prompt retort and tbe
power of making witnesses miserable. With
any one else than Mr. Butler to oppose him, I
think it quite likely that Mr. Stanbery would
shine in these respects daring the impeach
ment trial; but ready as Mr. Stander? is, Mr.
Butler is BO much more ready, ant into the
bargain more audacious and (if txactly the
proper word may be excused) mor? brutal, in
an encounter of wits, that little is kit for Mr.
Stanbery but to sit astonished at tie fusillade
of his antagonist. An instance octura to me
which, though it does not cover all I have said,
will shed a little light in ibis connection. Mr.
Butler proposed to introduce Mr.' Johnson's
letter to Mr. Mcculloch, written last August,
announcing Mr. Stanton's suspension in com?
pliance witn tho Tenure-of-office law,-"show?
ing," said the honorable manager with empha?
sis, "the entire falsehood of the respondent's
claim that he suspended the secretary under
the constitution and without recognizing tbe
validity of the law." Mr. Stabberyj took the
letter and examined it. "We have bo objec?
tion to the evidence," said he, "We see no
falsehood there, no inconsistency." But the
last word was not to be with him, 'The false?
hood," said Mr. Butler, pointedly, "'is not in
the letter; it is in the answer "-patting the
point much more clearly than it would have
rested had Mr. Stanbery said nothing about it.
It remains to be said only that the President's
chief legal adviser is a good speaker, though
not by any means an orator, with a voice at
once clear, flexible and tender; and that his
final argument in this, the greatest case of his
life, will be welljworth listening to, whether thc
auditor's sympathies lean to his side or to the
HOS. E. E. CUBT1B.
Judge Curtis sits next at the President's ta?
ble, and by his assignment to open the case
may be understood to rank second in the list
of counsel. He is so well known to your read?
ers that I may be pardoned for abstaining from
any personal description of him, beyond what
may be implied in the remark that he is the
object of much close inspection from the gal?
leries by newcomers in Washington, because
he is said to bear a suggestive resemblance in
general appearance ana build to bis client, the
invisible centre of the whole trial. He has
taken comparatively small part in the duties
incident to the production of the case by the
managers; but in what be has said has carried
great weight from a certain flavor of honestv
and fairness in his manner of putting things'.
It is as when Mr. Choate, aware of the preju?
dices of those whom he addressed, argued a
case before a jury cf exceedingly practical far?
mers, and was pronounced by one of them "no
great shakes of a speaker, but a might? honest,
straightforward man." This quality. I suspect,
caused the selection of Mr. Cartis to present
to the Senate on Saturday the request for a
delay for preparation; and this, with the un?
expected moderation of the petition, secured
the success of the effort, when an argument
for a week's time, uttered with the plausible
smoothness of his associates, would have re?
sulted in a refusal to grant more than a sin
WM. ii. EVA HTS. -;'?-.,
I come to Mr. Evarts, whose engagement
must be considered the mester-stroke of tLe
President's defenco thus far. His appearance
must at first glance be a surprise to every one
acquainted, with his fame as a lawyer, not
"that one small head could cairy all he'knew,"
but that so slender a frame could have sus?
tained the toils and studies which his life
must have known. A very wisp of humanity,
so frail and alight that it seems as though the
next breeze must blow him away, one thinks of
him inevitably as the victim of some wasting
disease, until the voice from his thin lips,
clear and finn and bell-like, assures the
hearer that there is vigor behind the
sound contradicting the evidence of the
eye. Alexander H. Stephens is the only
man recently in public hie with whom phy?
sically he can be compared; though there is
something about him which suggests the tradi?
tions of John Bandolph, of Roanoke. Mr.
Evarts is the perfection of a cross-examiner,
having a rare felicity of stating a question
tersely and plainly, and at the same time a
subtle -persuasiveness which almost compels
the witness to answer as he wishes. He did not
lead the half dozen reporters whom he cate?
chized to declare that stenography was vague,
untrustworthy and' more likely to misinterpret
a speaker than to do him justice-but it was
only because these gent'emen were unexcep?
tionally clear-headed, self-possessed, and thor?
oughly confident of their art. With as many
carpenters I am sure he would, if he wished,
have obtained the admission that the houses of
their construction would be very apt to tumble
over in case of a high wind. While every inch
a gentleman, and never forgetting that 'he is
such, Mr. Evarts is better fitted toitope with
the minor fencing of the other aide fban is his
chief; he encounters General Butler with entire
coolness and a slight tinge of scorn, quite un?
like the amazement with which Mr. Stanbery
meets his guerrilla warfare, and sometimes even
gets the better of him a little. The editor of
the Cleveland Leader, it will be remembered,
testified that he had been aided by a subordi?
nate reporter named Johnson in making up his
report. Some time after, and when most peo?
ple had forgotten thai point in the testimony,
Hr. Butler was asking the witness as to the
colloquy between the excited l'resident and the
crowd below the balcony:
"State what the crowd said and what John
(on said"-said he with habitual bluntness.
"The honorable manager should state wheth?
er he means the President or whom else, when
Le says "Johnson,"' said Mr. Evarts.
"There is no other Johnson in this case, I
believe," retorted Mr. Butler.
"The witness has just testified that one
Johnson assisted bim in making up his notes,''
said Mr. Evarts.
"Ah"-returned Mr. Butler, evidently recog?
nizing the hit-"Ven- well, I mean 'Andrew
Johnson, last aforesaid."
He recovered himself quickly, of course, but
1 thins he appreciated the wit if not the force
of the rebuke as it was administered; and I
noticed that he adhered to "Mr." or some
other title in referring to the President during
the rest of the day.
GBOESBECE AND NELSON.
The other two members of the President's
counsel have attended regularly through the
trial, but have said not a word thus far, and
cannot be considered as entitled to special de?
scription. Mr. Groesbeck is a tall man, who
?auld be called slender but that he sits beside
Xr. Evarts, and appears stout in contrast. He
il dominated os to his personal presen;ebya
prodigious nose of thc acquiline type, and there
il a slight excess in the urbanity of his man?
ner, which hints at Mr. Turvevdr.ip. Mr. Nel?
son completes the catalogue, and is apparent
It the oldest on the list. His hair is nearly
gray, he is lame, and stoops as ?he writes and
ls bo walks. He fills an unimportant pince at
the counsel board, which he occupies as an old
friend of the President's early political life in
Tennessee, and is not likely to be beard from
in tbe trial.
