THE "SICK': SENATORS.
[SPECIAL DISPATCH TO THE DAILY SEWS.]
WASHINGTON, May 14.-The impeachers are
terribly disconcerted at the tarn which events
have takari since Sunday.
Is THE HOUSE, thia morning-, the managers
introduced and secured the adoption of a reso?
lution authorizing the appointment of a com?
mittee to make ? thorough investigation in re?
gard to the sources of the information concern?
ing the intended votes of senators, published
in the newspapers. As long as the predictions
of the press indicated the conviction of the
^ President, no umbrage was taken ; but in the
well founded statements, published on Tues?
day and Wednesday, foreshadowing an acquit?
tal, the managers professed to discover a hein?
ous breach of the privileges of the High Court.
It is now admitted on all bands that the
chan coe are against the vote being taken on
Saturday next. It is almost certain that no re?
sult will then be reached, unless conviction
ahall seem practicable. Both sides still pro?
fess to be equally confident.
Senators Grimes, Howard and Conkling are
still sick. .
The House bas just passed Stevens' omnibus
bill, admitting North and South Carolina,
Georgia. Alabama and Lo nisiana to representa?
tion in Congress.

THE IMPEACHMENT SCHEME.
LATEST GOSSIP FROM WASHINGTON.
WHAT THE CORRESPONDENTS SAT.
The data from Washington, received by last
night's mail, indicate the following nine Re?
publican senators as freely spoken of for ac?
quittal, viz : Fessenden, of Maine; Anthony, of
Rhode Island; Frelinghnysen, of New Jersey;
Trumbull, of Illinois; Grimes, of Iowa; Hen?
derson,- of Missouri; Ross, of Kansas; Van
Winkle, of West Virginia; Fowler, of Tennes?
see. The above, with the eight Democrats,
positive for acquittal, viz : Buckalow, of Penn?
sylvania, Bayard and Saulsbury, pf Delaware;
Johnson and Vickers, of Maryland; Daria and
McCnery, of Kentucky; Hendricks, of Indi?
ana; and the four Conservatives, viz : Dixon,
of Connecticut; Doolittle, of Wisconsin; Nor?
ton, of Minnesota, and Patterson, of Termes- j
see-comprise twenty-one votes. With all the
fifty-four senators voting, only nineteen votes
are necessary for acquittal, and these will still
be inquired for that result ii either Mr. Wade
(ou account of being an interested party) or
Mr. Howard, on the other side, should ot
vote. If, however, only seven of the nine Re?
publicana named vote for acquittal, the result
will be the same.
The New York Tribune concedes that
Messrs. Fessenden, Grimes, Trumbull and
Henderson will go against conviction, and says
that the three more who are required to make
up the seven Republican senators necessary
for acquittal must come from seven gentlemen
considered doubtful, viz: Fowler, Van Winkle,
Anthony, Frelinghuysen, Roes, Wilby and
Spragus. Of these Messrs. Fowler and Van
Winkle are conceded by the Tribune for ac?
quittal, so that one of the other five holds the
decision of the case in hie hands. But it has a
Washington dispatch wai ch says that Freling?
huysen is sure to vote for conviction on tho
first three articles, and this, he thinks, will
carry Willey also. This leaves three from
which, according to the Tribune's estimate,
to get the one other vote which ia requisite,
according to its estimates, and on which it
pronounces that "conviction looks very, very

JUDGES-PRESSURE TO BE BROUGHT ON RE?
FRACTORY SENATORS-HENDERSON, OF MISSOU?
RI-WA8HBURNE TALKING OF H-LL AND BUT?
LER OF DJBS'ATION.
The WashirrS|pn correspondent of the Balti?
more Gazette, writing on Tuesday night, says:
Great was the disappointment of the im?
mense assemblage at the capitol to-day at the
postponement of the vote on impeachment, al
cuough it wat pretty well understood early in
the morning that an effort to postpone would
be made. The Radical senators had met In
sauous and fixed the adjournment, but when
required to assign some reason for the extra?
ordinary movement, Senator Chandler arose
with a long face and spoke of the serious
illness of his colleague (Mr. Howard), who was
confined to his room and who had been
delirious most of the day yesterday. This may
be all true, but a current report is that Senator
Howard had eaten too heartily of green peas,
which resulted in an attack of the cholera
morbus, hut which did not necessarily un it
him for the discharge of his duties as a mem?
ber of the high court of impeachment. It ia j
behoved he could have attended the session of |
the court with entire convenience, and would
have dune so, had if not been the policy of the
Jacobins to delay the voting, finning, as they
believed, that the President would be acquit
ted *f they allowed the vote to be taken to-day
In order to cover up their tracks and al?
lay suspicion, they expressed many regrets at
not being able to proceed, and even expressed
a willingness to come to a vote if some friend
of the President would agree to pair off with
Mr. Howard and not vote. This by-play did
not dec3ive any one.. Demoralization was
plainly written on their faces, as plainly as it
was subsequently spoken by Mr. Drake, who
urged that the Senate should adjourn over as
well as the Court, senators not bein g in a prop?
er frame of mind to undertake their legislative
In the meantime every possible pressure is
to be brought to bear upon the refractory sen?
ators. Telegrams have been sent to every Con?
gressional district, urging that all the appli?
ances possible shall oe used to coerce these
senators to vote for conviction. It is rumored
this evening that already has Senator Hender?
son sought relief from the pressure by promis?
ing not to vote at all-but those who report
this know little of tbe man. For thirty years
Missouri was represented in the United States
Senate by Benton, whose mantle has never
fallen upon the, shoulders of another, for none
have proven worthy, unless it be John B. Hen?
derson, who has marked out for himself a broad
national policy similar to that which made
'Old Bullion's' name a household word through?
out the land.
The impeachers are blustering and betting
largely this eveing. and now declare they are
certain of thirty-eight votes on the eleventh
article, which by caucus agreement will be
made the first one when the vote comes to be
taken. It is thought exceedingly strange here
that the article regarded equally by the mana?
gers and the counsel for the President as being
positively frivolous, should now be made the
peg on which to hang a vote of conviction.
Before the House of Repr?sentatives was
called to order this morning the excitement in
the hall was very great, and the recreant sena?
tors, as the impeachers called them, were free?
ly anathematized, and Butler said they "had
demoralized themselves to political damna?
tion." Washburne, the special guardian of
General Grant, remarked that ''everything had
gone to heu."
It wu! be easily seen that the real motive of
the postponement is (as stated) a thorough
conviction on the part of the impeachers that
they are powerless to convict, and desire "to
be let down easily." They of course feel that
their discomfiture w?l fall upon their parti?
sans throughout the country like a wet blan?
ket, and they dare not yet let loose their
hounds upon such as Fessenden, Trumbull,
Grimes and Henderson I This must be the
work of time, and if possible deferred until af?
ter the Chicago Convention shall have sur?
rounded Grant with a halo of Radical glory,
and these gentlemen aha" have been commit?
ted to his support. They wiU then be un?
ceremoniously given up to the assassins of
character connected with their infamous jour?
Bnt I sm aware that other motives and hopes
wm be alleged to have inspired thia cowardly
"dodge-" It is urged by Radicals at the capi?
tol that "time onlv and proper appliances are
wanted to bring back certain senators to the
control of the leading impeachers." To the
eternal credit of the four senators to whom I
have just alluded, their names aro in nowise
:mi>ed up with this disgraceful suggestion.
They, at least, are fairly admitted to be far be?
yond the threats or blandishments or corrup?
tions of tho unscrupulous men who yet rule the
Senate, and I beg your readers to believe that
there is not the slightest foundation for the
insinuations in respect to others who are un?
derstood to agree with them, and who, if they
have not committed themselves in public
seeches, have fully expressed themselves in
private as to the utter failure of this onslaught
upon the President.
It is proper, also, that I should mention that
certain desperate political gamblers openly ad?
vocate the admission of a sufficient number of
bogus senators from the South to ensure con?
viction. And this monstrous proposition does
not create surprise, much less indignation 1 I
heard it to-day gravely argued that inasmuch
as the whole of the testimony and argument,
pro and con., waa available in print to the new
senators, and that as the President had not
appeared in person at the trial, ?feo., that they
were as competent to judge of the merits of the
controversy as if they had attended the court
during the whole progress of the cause. I need
not say that I place no reliance in the report
that such a course will-even be attempted. I
mention it to show the frenzy and despair of
the Radical mind at this time in Washington.
SENATOR OBQTJSS OK MPE ACHSTE NT.
Mr. Grimes (Rep.), of Iowa, made along
speech in the Senate, in secret session, on'
Monday evening, in opposition to the impeach?
ment of the President. After reviewing the
several articles, he concluded as follows:
I have expressed no views upon any of the
questions upon which the President has been
arraigned at the bar of public opinion outside
of the charges. I have no right to travel out
of the record. Mr. Johnson 'a character as a
statesman, his relation to political parties, his
conductas a citizen, his efforts at reconstruc?
tion, the exercise of his pardoning power, the
character of bis appointments and the influ?
ences under which they were made, are not be?
fore us on any charges. Nor can I Buffer my
judgment of the law governing this case to be
influenced by political considerations. I can?
not agree to destroy the harmonious working
of the constitution for the sake of getting rid
of an unacceptable President. Whatever my
opinion of the incumbent, I cannot consent to
trifle with the high office he holds. 1 differ
widely with the President respecting bia poli?
tical views and measures, and deeply regret
the differences between birg and Congress; nut

vote that he is guilty of high crimes and mis?

SULT OF THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL-THE E?
TBAOnPINAB? POSITION OF THE REPUBLICAN
PARTY-THE RADICAL HOSTILITY TO WADE.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York World writes under date of the 10th in?
Should Mr. Fessenden, who, as an irate Rad?
ical said yesterday, "has carried this thing in
his breeches' pocket from the beginning," vote
not guilty, his shining example may and doubt?
less will be pretty safely followed by leeser
lights in the Chamber. For if, in Mr. Fessen
den's case, an act so consistent could be as?
cribed to any other motive than that of justice,
it would be to motives of political decency and
caution, which inspire more Repubiicans*thon
he to denounce the proposed surrender at this
time of the fate of the Radical party m to hands
like Mr. Wade's. All sorts of soothing assur?
ances, to be sure, are murmured in the ears of
Mr. Wade's enemies in the Senate, to the effect
that he will, if elevated to the Presidential
chair, ruopt discreetly administer the affairs of
state with regard to the interests of whoever
shall be nominated at Chicago for the next
election. Yet Mr. Wade is too lustily despised,
and bis word is held at too slight avalu?, for
the prosperity of these advances. If swallowed
at ali, it will be swallowed os a bitter pill; and
it is still hoped that his repugnance to the
tastes and reason of more than a third of the
Chamber may assist to neutralize the tremen?
dous pressure for conviction.
The extreme Rad'cals of the Senate and
House alike are struggling for conviction, not
because they all continue to bo agreed that tho
impeachment was a wise political measure, but
because it has become a measure of despera?
tion to the extreme wing of the pirty and to
their individual selves. The blunder being
committed, they see nothing but political dis?
grace and personal obloquy m a failure to sup?
port it. The rntm?ticTiTiftb^petrsohomes ra -
the South, and of their pet aspirations for the
next four years, is, as they contend, certain to
follow the acquittal of Mr. Johnson. Here is
exactly where a split, favorable to the Presi?
dents cause, bas been impending between the
moderate Republicans and th* fanatics. The
men who believe that General Grant is the only
man that could be elected as a Republican Pres?
ident next November, are beginning to recog?
nize the oolitical necessity of modifying the ex?
cesses of the party and lessening the opprobri?
um which attaches to it in the minds of the
Conservative masses. Having learned the les?
son tangnt by the elections of the last six
months in widely separated sections of the
country, these discreet counsellors forebode a
stronger reaction against thedespotic success of
the impeachment and the Radical measures
which would be inaugurated upon it.
The Republican party is, in fact, placed in a
gratifying quandary. One of the rumors con?
cerning Mr. Fessenden, whioh, whether it had
a respectable origin or not. helps to illustrate
tile fitful fearsomeness of Radical Congress?
men and others who are circulating it, is that
he said in conversation wita a gentleman from
his own State, that if the President should be
convicted the Democratic party would carry
Maine next fall. Three Radical members of
the House, with whom I happened to converse
the other evening, spoke of the Republican
party as "pretty well disorganized, con?
viction or no conviction," and anybody
who takes the unpleasant pains to min?
gle with the garrulous throngs of Rad?
icals who swell the nightly crowd at
Willard's, cannot fail to be.edified with their
reckless candor. The better class of Re?
publican leaders have some reason to be alarm?
ed bv the suggestion that Mr. Wade and his
friends will, after his accession, and especially
if Wade should not receive the nomination for
Vioe-Preaident, cut loose from the Conserva?
tive wing of the party altogether, give up the
ship, and "go it bund" for their mutual bene?
fit until a Democratic President is inaugura?
ted in March. There are a plenty of Radicals
in the Senate and in the country capable, in
default of the certainty of success next fall, in
turning the whole fabric o? government topsy
turvey while Mr. Wade is in poBseasiou, and
gorging themselves with spoil. Reputation,
Eresent or posthumous, is doubtless a very
ne thing to honorable gentlemen. Repu?
tation with a party is commonly preferabi
to most politicians". But in the cases of poli?
ticians so lost to every sense of right, duty and
propriety as to vote to substitute Ben. Wade
aa President of tho United States, in the
place of Mr. Johnson, reputation, either patri?
otic or political, baa but a flimsy part. ^Str"
corrupt, indeed, have become our poll tics, that
sel-aggrandizement, even pecuniary self-ag?
grandizement, ?B a oonsi deration that the low?
est office-Beeker in Washington regrets he has
not the means to apply. And, while the Radi?
cal jugglers in Congress who manipulate the
people's affairs are glad enough to be thought
well of by deluded constituents, a glittering
bribe, or a few months' lease of power and op?
portunity of "piokings," are temptations for
which how many of them would hesitate to
risk their "sacred honors T That was a very
brazen arrowy suggestion in The World that
the whiskey-ring should purchase votes for ac?
quittal at a million apiece : but that it aimed
at the weak 3pc t in the mail of Borne of the
Radical senaters is proven by the terror ex
Ereseed by those who know them lest it should
e seized upon and shot home.
Other tokens, which I omitted to mention in
my last letter, are tho reactionary sentiment
manifesed by Conservative Republican sena?
tors against the bullying course of the mana?
gers, and the Btill more angry resentment
aroused by the outside system of secret es?
pionage and partisan intermeddling with the af?
fairs of members of the court. No less than
three senators on the Radical side of the
chamber have declared since Friaay last, in
terms more or less emphatic, that if the im?
peachment of President Johnson should prove
a failure, the managers and the officious poli?
ticians here who arc employing the basest
means to force conviction, will be themselves
responsible for the issue.

Yesterday two vessels arrived it Phillips'

throughout Camden, and the phosphate ships
were besieged by a crowd eager to Bee what

Visitors were permitted to examine the
cargoes, and a number ot sharks' teeth

were found in the phosphat?e. These cu?

tants of the great deep. A careful and thor?
ough analysis by competent chemists have
revealed toe important fact that this phos?

the phosphate can be excavated each day. The
vast beds of this material are contiguous to
navigable water, and the precious cartu can be
readily and economically shipped.
There is but one other deposit of phosphate
similar to this of the Ashley River known to
exist in the world, and this is in the north of j
England, where it is found in what is techni?
cally known to miners as a "pocket." This
imi ortant dissovery and its practical develop?
ment will work untold good to tbs South, as
well as benefit to the agricultural ingres' of
the North, East and West. The sunny South
is nearer to this restorer of weakened arable
lands, and her wide but fallow fields can e??sily
be mado to blossom as the rose, by means of
tho phosphate found ill such abundance near
the City of Charleston.

CHARLESTON, May 12, 1868.
At a regular meeting of the Vestry of St. Luke'i
Ch arch, Chariest, n, the following resolutions were
Resolved, That in the demise of Mr. ROBERT
TH DENTON th* Vestry of St Luke's Church,
Charleston, lament the removal of one who, though
but recently officially connected with it, had given
earnest of that zeal and devotion to the church which
marked his consistent life as a professor of the re?
ligion of Jesus Christ
Resolved, That a copy of the foregoing resolution
bc transmitted to the widow of the deceased, with
the respectful assurance of the sincere sympathy of j
the members of this body in her weighty bereave?
Tribute of Respect.
The grave has closed over a form that was dear to
our eyes, and the meek and gentle spirit ot him
whose prerogative it was to rule and govern our
Lodge has taken its flight forever from earth to hea?
ven. Our hearts are filled with sadness, and the
countenances cf the brethren are overshadowed
with deep gloom over the grave of their counsellor
and friend, their faithful and beloved Master, ROB?
ERT THURSTON. It may be truly said of our de?
parted brother that be was exemplary in all the rela?
tion s of Ufe. The ardor of bis heart was enlisted in
tho prosperity of Franklin Lodge. He presided over
us with urbanity, zealand efficiency. Elevation to
office rendered bim more and more humble, and in?
duced a (?zeater desire to be useful His life was a
beautiful illustration of the noble principles of our
Order. As a Christian soldier, who had fought the
good fight, ho sunk peacefully to rest. He had so
lived that to die was gain. All that death has left us
is the precious memory of his life, and as a brief |
memorial of our sincere and profound sorrow, be it,
therefore, unanimously ,
Resolved, That in the death of Worshipful Master
ROBEBT THURSTON, Franklin Lodge hos sustained a
most grievous loss, and the cause of Masonry a faith?
ful and earnest advocate.
Resolved unanimously, That the Lodge be clothed
with mourning for six months, and that a blank page
in our Minute Book be inscribed to his memory,
with the date of his installation as alaster, and
Resolved unanimously, That this Preamble and
Resolutions be published in the city papers, and that
a copy be transmitted to his family, assuring them
of our painful bereavement and deep sympathy.

jffyFALLACIES OF THE FACULTY.-THE
stomach is thc ruling organ of the system. If the
digestion is Imperfect, every member, every gland,
every muscle, every nerve and fibre ls more or less
out of order. All the fluids are depraved. The brain
is clouded. The spirits are depressed. AU dyspep?
tics know this to be the truth. It is r ot, however,
half the truth. Columns would be required to enu?
merate tho pams and penalties of dyspepsia, nor
could any pen do thom justice. Tens of thousands
feel them; no man can describe them.
Can they be prevented ? Can they be relieved ?
Can they be banished at onco and forever? UN?
QUESTIONABLY TEE! CAN. No dyspeptic has ever
taken HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS in vain
Relievo no one who fays the complaint is incurable.
This great vegetable stomachic will eradica'e it-is
eradicating it in thousands of cases over which med?
ical practitioners have shaken their heads ominious- "
ly, paying, "Nothing con be done."
The faculty has Its fallacies. One or them is that
indigestion is the most difficult of all 'he ordinary
ailments of mankind to combat and r-ibdue. This
is a mistake. Nothing can be east' e than to con?
quer it if tho true specific be administered. This
vegetable combination, which has become famous
throughout the civilized world as HOSTETTER'S
STOMACH Bl TIERS, is an t ntidote to the disease
which has never been known to fail, and fortunately
lt ls everywhere procurable. If you wish to fool
with the dyspepsia, try the pharmacopoeia prescrip?
tions. If you want to root it out and prevent its
recurrence, take the Bitters daily. There is no dis?
count on the testimony In its favor. If there is s
man or woman who has ever tried it for indigestion
without being benefitted, the fact has not transpired.
