solution of censure against Nelson for language
likely to provoke a duel. Several obj ec tiona were
^made to Nelson's producing a letter dated
March 9th with Butler's and Logan's signa?

to see the letters, bnt Nelson required some
pledge that they would be returned. Chase
made some objection, when Nelson said he
would prefer depositing them with the secre?
tary of the Senate, who could show them to
Butler. Here the matter stopped, and Evarts
proceeded. He spoke all day, but will con?

has no business to object. Senator Sherman
then objected. Senator Hendricks moved that
Nelson be allowed to read so much as would
show the dato and signature-which was car?

THE IMPEACHMENT ARGUMENTS.
GREAT SPEECH 0F~iTR. GEOESBECK.
THE PROSPECTS FOB THE PRESIDENT BBIGHT
A Bpeciol Washington telegram, dated 27th
instant, to the Richmond Dispatch, Bays :
"Republican authorities to-day admit that
impeachment stook, from some indefinable
cause, has a dowr.ward tendency. Lu iact, on
all sides it is admitted that the Senate will ac?
quit the President. The speech of Mr. Groes
beck has so clearly presented the utter unten
ableness of the articles of impeachment, and the
insufficiency of evidence to sustain the charge
of criminal intent, that many who heretofore
asserted that a tase for removal had been
made ont now agree that the managers have
failed to present to the Senate the facts and
law to warrant th it body in a conviction and
removal of the Executive."
MB. GBOESBECE'S SPEECH - THE PRESIDENT'S
The Washington correspondent of the Balti?
more Sun writes under date of the 26th inst.:
The President's friends seem to be more con?
fident now of the successful termination.of im?
peachment. What new grounds they have for
this is not known, but they talk with assur?
ance pf an acquittal.
There is but hit le difference of opinion about
the argument of Mr. Groes beck, of counsel for
the President, before #the high court of im?
peachment, yesterday. Men of all S-^PS of
politics agree that it evinced ability of a supe?
rior character, and that it will rank with the
ablest, clearest aud mott logical arguments
ever presented to any tribunal. The extreme
Radicals-the men most aaxious for Mr. John?
son's conviction-the men whose minds are al?
ready made np, and who have determined not
to be convinced (and this is not intended to
apply to senators, but to gentlemen outside
and to members of the Ho.ise), all say it was
tho best argument yet presented for the de?
fence, but they do not attempt io gainsay ?ny
of the points presented.
Since the commencement of the trial no man
has been listened to with such marked atten?
tion, both from senators and others upon the
floor and spectators in thc gallery; and this,
t o, in spite of the fact that it was a great phy?
sical labor for him to speak, and that his voice,
from bronchial hoarseness, was anything but
pleasing to the ear. But after his first sen?
tences the voice was forgotten, and tho closest
attention was paid to his sound, forcible reas?
He was decidedly original in manner, mat?
ter and form of expression, and threw a flood
of light upon the case. The lawyers of the
Senate-the men of acknowledged legal ability
-such as Johnson, Fessenden, Trumbull,
Grimes, Sherman, and others, seemed to be
particularly interested, and paid the strictest
attention; and there was hardly one but noted
the points now and then made. Senator How?
ard, who has throughout the trial occupied bis
own seat on the outer circle of desks, on this
occasion, and after Mr. Groesbeck had spoken
a short time, moved nearer to him, and more
than once critically examined the case i cited
by the speaker.
It was manifest that the Ohio lawyer was
giving the Michigan senator some points and
decisions which were either new to him or
which had escaped his attention. Mr. Sum?
ner, too. seemed to be more interested than he
has yet been, except, perhaps, since Mr. Mana?
ger Butler's opening. Senators Drake and
Fowler occupied seats near the table of coun?
sel, and listened attentively. Senator Conkling
kept his seat upon the outer circle for a
tune, but after awhile became so much inter?
ested that he moved nearer - and occupied a
seat beside Senator Johnson. The latter, as is
his custom, paid tho strictest attention.
The correspondent of the New York Herald,
writing on the same subject, says:
The fact being genera-lly known that one of
the ablest of ths counsel for the President
would address th? Senate to-day drew together,
considering the unpleasant character of the
weather, an unusually large crowd. Judge
Groesbeck was the speaker of to-day ; and now,
that the day is over, the general opinion is
that he has borne off from both sides the lau?
rels for argument and eloquence.
The audience, senators and all, became deep?
ly interested and followed the speaker eagerly
through his splendid charge along the whole
line of the eleven articles. The peroration,
however, was, as it should be, the climax of
this address, and is said to be the most elo?
quent and best sustained effort that has been
heard in the Senate since tho palmy days of
oratory in this republic. When he concluded
Mr. Groesbeck was the recipieut of congratula?
tions, first from the Chief Justice and then
from the leading senators on both sides of the
With the approximation of the termination
of the impeachment trial the speculations as
to the result assume a more earnest phase.
Upon the hypothesis that conviction is sure to
be the result wh ?n the time comes expectations
run high. Some of the most anxious of the
Radicals seem to be in a state of great mental
perplexity and uncertainty. One of these, who
fave vent to his feelings," was heard to say to
ay that this Congress would havo to vote again
for the impeachment of Andrew Johnson
meaning that he would override tKe present ef?
forts of the managers io make out a case. In
response to this remark several members re?
plied that if this trial did not succeed they
would see the party ruined before they would
vote again for any such measure.

ING OLD CLO' IN NEW TOBE.
We must regale our readers with a few more
extracts from "Behind the Scenes."
SECRET HISTORY OF MES. LINCOLN S WARDROBE.
In March, 1867, Mrs. Lincoln wrote to "Mrs.
Ketchley" from Chicago. Among other things,
she said :
I cannot live on $1700 a year, and as I have
many costly things which I shall never wear, I
might as well turn them into money, and thus
add io niv income, and make my circumstances
easier, lt is humihathig to be placed in such
a position; but, as I am in the position. I must
extricate myself aB best I can. Now, Lizzie, I
want to ask a favor of you. It is imperative
that I should do something for myself, and I
want you to meet me in New York between the
30th of August and the 5th of September next,
to assist me ia disposing of a portion of my
wardrobe. * * * *
It was finally arranged that I should meet her
in New York about the middle of September.
While thinking over this question, I remem?
bered au incident ot the White House. When
we were packing up to leave Washington for
Chicago, she said co me, one morning:
"Lizzie, I may see the day when I shall be
obliged to sell "a portion ot* my wardrobe. If
Congress does not do something for me then
my cresses some day may have to go to hiing
food into my mouth and the mouths of my
On the 15th September I received a letter
from Mrs. Lincoln, post-marked Chicago, say?
ing that she should leave the city so as to reach
New York on the night of the 17th, and direct?
ing me to precede her to the metropolis and
secure rooms lor her at the St. Denis Hotel m
the name ol Mrs. Clar.te, as her visit was to
ce ia cog.

Mrs. Lincoln having gone to New York, dis?
guised as "Mrs. Clarke," met her colored friend
at the St. Denis Hotel. Here is how they were

The result wa6 that Mrs. Lincoln iras stowed
away in a little three-cornered, meanly! fur?
nished room, on the fifth floor. At dinner?
time "Mrs. Ketchley" was 6hown into the
dining hall, and seated at a table in one cor?
ner of the room. She was Riving ber orders,
when the steward came forward and "gruffly"
"You are in the wrong room."
"1 was brought here by the waiter," I re?
"It makes no difference, I will find you an?
other place where you can get your dinner."
I got np from the table and followed him,
and when outside of the door, said to him :
"It is very strange that j on Bhould permit
me to be seated at the table in the dining-room
only for the sake of ordering me to leave it
the next moment."
"Are you not Mrs. Clarke's servant?" was
his abrupt question.
"I am with Mrs. Clarke."
"It is all the same; servants are not allowed
to eat in the large dining-room. Here, this
wav; you must take your dinner in the servants'
Hungry and humiliated as I was, I was will?
ing t? follow to any place to get my dinner, for
I had been riding all day, and had not tasted a
mouthful since early morning.
On reaching the servants' hall we found the
door of the room locked. The waiter left me
standing in the passage wini - be went to in?
form the clerk or the tact.
In a few minutes the obsequious clerk came
blustering down the hall:
"Did you come out of the etreet, or from
Mrs. Clarke's room ?"
"FromMr8. Clarke's room," I meekly an?
swered. My gentle words seemed to quiet
him, and then he explained:
"lt ?B after the regular hour for dinner.
The room is locked up, and Annie has gone out
with the key."
My pride would not let me stand longer in
"Very well, " I remarked, as I began climb?
ing the etairp, ?T will tell Mrs. Clarke that I
cannot get any dinner."
He looked after me, with a scowl on his .face:
"Yon need not put on airs! I understand
the whole thing."
I said nothing, but continued to climb the*
stairs, thinking to myself: "Well, if you under?
stand the whole thing, it is strange that you
should put the widow of ex-President Abraham
Lincoln in a three-cornered room in the attic
of this miserable hotel."
When 1 reached Mrs. Lincoln's room tears of
humiliation and vexation were in my eyes.
UBS. LINCOLN E5 TEE WARDROBE MARKET.
Mrs. Lincoln looked over a morning paper,
and Anally decided to select the firm of W.
H. Brady & Co., No. C09 Broadway, to
dispose of the articles she wished to sell. She
went to their establishment and tried to sell
them a lot of jewelry, giving her name as Mrs.
Clarke. She met Mr. Judd, and they were
unable to agree about the price. Mr. Keyes,
a member of the firm, came in, and in looking
over the jewelry discovered Mrs. Lincoln's
name inside one of the rings. Mrs. Lincoln
I had forgotten the ring, and, whon I saw
him looking at the name so earnestly, I
snatched the bauble from him and put it into
my pocket. I hastily gathered up my jewelry
and started out. They asked for my address,
and I left my card, Mrs. Clarke, at the St.
Mr. Keyes called to see Mrs. Clarke, and was
elated to find that she was Mrs. Lincoln.
He was an earnest Republican, was much
affected by her story, and denounced the in?
gratitude of the government in the severest
terms. She complained to bim of the treat?
ment she had received at the St. Denis, and he
advised her to move to another hotel forth?
The party went to Earle's Hotol in Canal
street, but it was full, so they drove to Union
Place Hotel. Messrs. Keyes and Brady called
often to see Mrs. Lincoln, and were sure that
if she would place her affairs in their hands
they could raise for her $100,000 in a lew
weel;s. The following narrativo will be of in?
Wo remained quietly in the Union Place
Hotel for a few days. On Sunday Mrs. Lincoln
accepted the use of a private carriage, and, ac?
companied by me, she drove cut to Central
Park. We did not enjoy the ride much, as the
carnage was a close one" and we could not open
the window for fear of being recognized by
some of the many thousands in the park. Mi's.
Lincoln wore a heavy veil so as to moro effec?
tually couceal her face.
We came near being run into, and wo had -
spasm of alarm, for an accideut would u..' .
exposed us to public gaze, and of cnn-., tne
masquerade would have been at au ea t. On
Tuesday I hunted np a number ot dealers in
second-hand clothing, and had them call at the
hotel bv appointment. Mrs. Lincoln soon dis?
covered that they were hard people to drive a
bargain with, so on Thursday we got into a
close carriage, taking a bundie of dresses and
shawls with us, and drove to a number of
stores on Seventh avenue, where an attempt
was made co dispose of a portion of her ward?
robe. The dealers wanted the goods for little
or nothing, and we found it a hard matter to
drive a bargain with them. Mrs. Lincoln met
the dealers squarely, but .ill of her tact and
shrewdness failed to accomplish much. I do
not rtare to dwell upon this portion of my story.
Let i; answer to say, that we returned" to the
hotel more disgusted than ever with the busi?
ness in which we were engaged. There was
much curiosity at the hotel iu relation to us,
as om- movements were watched, and we were
regarded with suspicion.
Our trunks in thc main hall below were ex?
amined daily, and curiosity was moro keenly
excited when tho argus-eyed reporters for the
press traced Mrs. Lincoln's name on the cover
of oue of her trunks. Thc letters had bee i
rubbed out, hut the faint outlines remained, and
iliesc outlines only served to stimulate curios?
ity. Messrs. Keys and Brady called often, aud
they made Mrs.' Lincoln believe that, if she
consented, they would devise a scheme which
promised to place a good bank account to her
credit. At different times in her room at
the Union Place Hotel she wrote the well
known letters which were published in the
papers as comiug from Chicago. Mr. Brady
proposed to show the letters to certain politi?
cians on a threat to publish them if his de?
mands, as Mrs. Lincoln's agent, were not com?
The book informs us that Mr. Brady exhibit?
ed the letters quite freely, but the parties to
whom they were shown refused to make any
Meanwhile our stay at the Union Place Ho?
tel excited so much curiosity that a sudden
movement was rendered expedient to avoid
discovery. We sent the large trunks to 609
Broadway, packed the smaller ones, paid our
bills at the hotel, and one morning hastily de?
parted for tho country, wuere we remained
three days. The movement was successful.
The keen-eyed reporters for the daily papers
were thrown off the scent, and when we returned
to the city we took rooms at the Brandreth
House, where Mrs. Lincoln registered as "Mrs.
A few days afterwards Mrs. Lincoln left this
city for Chicago.

THE GREAT VICTORY. OF GEN EBAL NAPLES-MAG?
DALA CAPTURED-BTNG THEODORE SLATN-THE
HISTORY OF HTS REIGN-OBIGES OF THE WAR.
The cable dispatches published in the North?
ern papers give some further interesting par?
ticulars of the important news from Abyssynia.
It appears that the battle was fought on Good
Friday, before Magdala, between the British
troops, commanded by General Napier, and
the Abyssinian forces, under their King, in
person. The latter were defeated, and re?
treated into the town. Their loss in killed and
wounded was very heavy. On the Monday fol?
lowing, all his preparations having been com?
pleted, General Napier ordered an assault upon
Magdala, and the town and citadel were car?
ried by storm. King Theodoras was slain. A
large number of his warriors were killed,
wounded and taken prisoners, and the entire
capital remained in the possession of the
British forces. The loss of the British in
killed and wounded was small. All the British
captives were found in the city, alive and well,
and were Bet free. General Napier's instant
return to the seacoast ia expected.
The career of the doceaaed monarch has
been a somewhat adventurous one.
His real name waa Li Kassa. Under this
name he organized a revolt in 1850 against the
government of the country, then rulod over
Sf ?'King John,1' who was the last of the royal
ahometan line, and who bore the title "of
"Negus," anghce Emperor. At this date Li
Kassa was thirty-two years of age. By ad?
dress, cunning, and by the assumption of so
brietv to the degree of austerity, he ingra?
tiated himself with several warlike tribes,
and starting with but a handful, received
considerable accessions by which he was
able to subdue and attack several outer
provinces. At first he set np ooly as a chief
of partisan adherents. What, however, with
the growth of bis ambition, and the native rest?
lessness of his followers, ho excited the alarm
of BAS Ali, head minister to the King. To
i secure him, the latter offered to Li Kassa
bis daughter in marriage, on the condition pre?
cedent of his ceasing hostili'ies to the govern?
ment. The marriage took place, and for the
time Li Kassa was pacific to the royal rule.
He, however, turned his arms in another direc?
tion. With 16,000 men Egypt was invaded, and
Li Kassi descended from the heights of Jichel
ea to the plains of Gal&bar. At Ganardros,
however, his army was totally routed by the
Turkish relays of the Egyptian Sendan, and
Li Kassa himself was badly, permanently, crip?
pled by a bullet in the knee. Impoverished in
spirit and broken in fortune, he was not able
even to fee an Abyssinian doctor to extract the
ball from his leg, and without money the leech
refused to work. In this extremity of suffer?
ing he besought his wife to send him a cow, by
the gift of which he hoped to stimulate
tho physician's withheld milk of human
kindness. The cow never came, but there
did come plenty of taunts, and a
notice of final abandonment from Mrs. Li Kas?
sa, then so-called. 8 tun g to the energy of re?
venge by this treatment, the chief determined
to have it ont with his wife, her ministerial
father, and tue whole regal concern. Partially
recruiting both his health and his forces, he
began an indiscriminate career of pillage upon
the "Paternal Government." He was (oimolly
impeached by the Abyssinian Bump, and sum?
moned for trial. He went, but it was to the
wager of battle. The respective chiefs sent
out against him were defeated, and at Amba
completely vanquished Ras Ah himself, the
Premier of the kingdom, and the father of hie
wife, by whom he was loved neither too wisely
nor too well.
As a result of thi?\ he was crowned Emperor,
under the name of Theodoras, at Aaum, by
the Bishop of Salama. For awhile he was
quiet, but, smarting under remembrance, he
again invaded the territory of the Egyptian
Seudan, after ineffectually having solicited the
Governments of France and England to join in
his crusade, which comprised in design tho
re-establishment of the ancient Ethiopian Em?
pire. The expedition was successful as against
the Seudan. But the army which, by num?
bers, had conquered was practically starved
out by the Fabian policy of his antagonist, and
desertions by the wholesale at last left Theo?
doras abarren victory, and the hardship of a
torco not larger than six thousand men and
the control of a tew futile fortresses. The
foreign entanglements which have even?
tuated in the present war and the su?
premacy of British rule in Abyssinia
began prior to Theodoras' accession tn the
thron:, as lor back as 1848. A Mr. Plowden.
Br..un Consulate at Massa wah, had concluded
.reaty favorable to the residence and busi?
ness of foreigners in the empire. Theodoras
set this wise concession of Ras Ali, his enemv
and father-in-law, quietly aside, and played the
plunderer and freebooter with Europeans in
general and Britishers in particular. Mr. Plow?
den himself was soon afterwards killed by a
predatory band in the interior. To keep up a
riondly appearance, Theodoras slaughtered
fifteen hundred of his subjects as reprisal. Mr.
Plowden was succeeded by Captain Cameron.
He was received with outward kindness, but
every official obstacle was thrown in his wav,
and ne himself was captured bv a Tigre chief.
Released alter delay, however, bc bore hu au?
tograph letter from Theodoras to Victoria so?
liciting English aid to realize his old dream
of restoring the Ethiopian Empire. To this
proposition Earl Russell returned a refu?
sal. Returning with lus refusai. Captain Came?
ron was maltreated, and all the English mis?
sionaries in thc country wore imprisoned. The
successive diplomatic attempts to negotiate
these gentlemen out of confinement are fami?
liar to thc public. They failed, and last year
General Robert Napier get out from India with
an expeditionary force of Britons and Sepoy
allies, comprising in all an estimate of 30,000
men. The steps taken, slowly but rarely, by
thia force, thc tardy willingness with which the
constituents of the home government acquies?
ced in the extra imposition of taxes necessary
to the expenses of the campaign, all thc inci?
dents preliminary to the one decisive battle,
have become familiar to our readers. That
the campaign is virtually ended in oue battle,
dissipates many of the apochryphal stories con?
cerning thc resources, it not the bravery of the
Abyssinian forces:, and the discoveiy. alive and
well, of the English prisoners who have been
the gravamen ot the dispute, will send satisfac?
tion as generally through ail Christendom as
it will particularly through the British Empire.
The dead Theodoras was forty-seven years
old, was of average stature, imposing presence,
and of au irregular, but not unimpressive phy?
siognomy. His habits were those oi an astute
demagogue. At court he revelled in luxury
and show. In the field, he affected simplicity
as well of diess as of diet. He has been cred?
ited with being at first chivalrous and frank.
His varied fortunes chanced him to duplicity
and cruelty. To get power he was temperate,
brave, austere. In power Le proved vindictive
and savage, though not devoid ol the politic
arts which conserved the responsibilities he
had gained by usurpation. After the Rupture
of his alliance* with the daughter ot Ras Ali, he
became very much married.
He seems to have taken n o means to name
his successor. It is probable that British oc?
cupation will effect, and has all along been in?
tended as the precurser of enduring British
rule. The Spectator, months ago, gave out
that England would hold whst Napier would
win. Tho kingdom of Abyssinia is probably as
dead ns Theodoras, and the land will then'be
come, as India, a dependent of that country
whose drum-beats are beard around the world.

*y CIRCULAR.-TO THE LADIES OF
THE VARIOUS CHURCHES IN THE CITY OF
CHARLESTON.-We, the Officers and Members oi
tho Yoong Men's Christian Ansociation of Charles?
ton, would take this method of respectfully appeal?
ing to you for assistance. We propose holding
A FLORAL FESTIVAL OR FAIR,
during the latter part of the earning month of May,
hoping we may thereby realizo a sufficient amount
to enable us to continue durli.g the present year the
various religious and charitable works which we
have commenced, and thus far carried on with great
success, but which we must necessarily but reluc?
tantly abandon, unless we derive aid from some
source. Tbe plan ot a Festival or Fair, during the
season of flowers, has suggested itself to our minds,
and we feel assured that it only requires your assis?
tance to make it a complete sn ccess.
We propose that the ladies of each church prepare
one table or booth, supplying he same with such ar?
ticles for sale as their own good Judgment may sug?
gest, believing that a generous emulation thus en?
gendered, as to which shall best succeed, will, when
all ore combined in one collection, present a most
elegant and complete display; and, furthermore, that
each table remain under the control of the ladies who
prepared lt, in order that at the close of the Faur it
may be seen which has succeeded best in the enter?
prise, and thereby contributed the largest amount
towards the cause in which we are all so interested.
We, therefore, respectfully call upon the ladies
composing the various congregations of all evangeli?
cal denominations in this city, to combine among
themselves, and commence BC once the preparation
of such articles as their own fancy and judgment
may dictate. -Let all assist, tl e humblest as well ai
the wealthiest, and with un ted ene-gies carry out
The members of tho Association will, one and all,
cheerfully perform all and every labor that may be
required of them, and will hold themselves always in
readiness to obey every reqaes .
Those ladies who are willing to assist us are re?
quested to mee* every Friday AJUrnoon at Five
o'clock, in the rooms of tb: Association (in King
street, over Messrs. FOGABTIE & STILLMAN'S Store),
to confer with each other and the officers of the As?
sociation, and perfect such airangements as may be?
come necessary in carrying out the plan suggested
to a successful termination.
