[8FSCZAX. DISPATCH TO TBE PAM HEWS.J
WASHINGTON, May 15.-The impeachers ap?
pear' afraid to risk a vote to-morrow. It ie pro?
bable that the illness of the senators will be
made tn excuse for another postponement. A
small cancos of Radical senators, held to-day,
favored delaying action until after the Chicago
Convention.
It is stated on good authority that on some
articles there will be a vote of twenty-five for
acquittal, and on the remainder a few less, if
the vote should be taken to-morrow.
K- [FROH THE ASSOCIATED PBEBB.]
WASHINGTON, May 15.-The ultimate acquit?
tal of the President seems conceded to-day.
Offsetting the meetings and resolutions which
have all been published, are very many private
dispatches to uncommitted senators, from
home sources, urging them to act according to
their consciences, and assuring them that the
impeachment furor eis artificial.
Replying to tho Missouri delegation, Senator
Henderson appears to have said conviction
would have railed without, and could not have
been secured with, bis vote. In hu> opinion
tlie second article would have been defeated by
" two, and the eleventh by four votes.
.. The impeachment managers appear to have
- abandoned yesterday's project, whatever .that
? may have been. They had no meeting to-day,
ind a vote to-morrow is considered improb?
able.
Howard and Conkhng are. confined tohedf
Grimes is better. ' Morton waa on -the 'street,
' lhere was no session of the'Senate.
IN TBS HOUSE, the letter of. the Missouri con
greeaional delegation|oServ^H^prHbnwas
?ap aa a question of privilege. Several Missouri
representatives said .that?he objectionable let
fer was written and tho interviews obtained at
the instance -of Henderson. Considerable ex
ci te ment ensued, but the Speaker deciding that
rt was not a privileged question, and several
member objecting io ita present consideration,
. fiie House proceeded tri th the regular order.
' "Wilson* was proceeding to explain a private
bill.when Woodward, who was author of the. j
resolution censuring the Missouri delegation,
desired to know what the gentleman from
. Missouri, Mr. Pile, who waa near biro, meant
by (iiatorting his face. .? He was not accus tom
od to being talked to in grimace and cabalistic
The Speaker rapped the House to order, and
asked, for what parp?se the gentleman rose.
Woodward d9aired to know what the signs
and facial contortions of Mr. Pile meant The
manner in which they were made was more be?
fitting Five Points than this hali..
The Speaker reminded Woodward that the.'
last remark was not in order.
Woodward, resuming, said the gentleman
Iud come towards him ? atong cabalistic signs
Of this style-putting bia thumb to his nose
and gyrating his fingers-and he could not un?
derstand that language.
Pile olsclaimed any intention to insult.
Woodward said that as the gentleman be-j
longed to the party that claimed to possess ala I
the morality of the country (cries of order on
the Republican side), he wanted to know what
the signs meant.
Hr. Myers wanted to know whether the re?
marks of his colleague would go into the
Globe, uttered, as they were, ont of order.
The Speaker said that they, would.
The Star says there is a lull in the impeach?
ment excitement, partly from the impression
that the question Will not be taken to-morrow.
Some of the managers fear postponement,
i while others, it is known, are in favor of dis1
posing for once, and for an, of tho question
thai is now only serving to weaken and dis?
tract the Republican party.
Some leading Republicans believe that it
will be politic to get wholly rid of the impeach?
ment matter as a feature of the coming Presi?
dential canvass, and to move on. to fresh fields
and pastures new, where all training under the
Republican standard can rally on common is?
sues.
The San Francisco Times and Bulletin de?
precates pressure on the impeachment ques?
tion,! laying that acquittal will prove the
strength of the par ly.
Representative Randall and Governor J. H.
BMrtBtat, of Texas, had an encounter this
morning, in which Hamilton struck Randall
over the head with a cane. The parties were
immediately separated, but another meeting

A TOUGH Ox STOBT CVMOTEMED.-A letter
from Any Mini a, in the London Telegraph, says :
'-Three ot the offloers of the Fourth Regiment
BAW the other day. st Fokada, an operation
which was described by Bruce, but which nae
been denied by all subsequent travellers, and
by the Abyssinians themselves. This was the
operation of cutting a steak from the body of
a living ox. They came upon the natives
just as they . were in the sot of performing
it. The unfortunate bullock was thrown
down, and its four legs tied together. The
operator then cut an incision in the skin
near the spine? just behind the hip joint. He
blew into this to separate the skin from the
flesh, and then out two other incisions at right
angles to the first, and then lifted a flap of skin
four or five inches square. From this he cut
out a lump of flesh, cutting with the knife un?
der the akin so that the amount of flesh taken
out was larger than the portion uncovered.
The operator then filled up the hole with cow?
arra*, replaced tho flap of skin, plastered it
up with mud, untied the feet of the poor ani?
mal, whff. had kept up a low moaning while the
operation was going ou, gave it a kick to make
it get np, and tho whole thing was over. I
should mention that the operator out two or
three gashes in the vicinity of the wound, ap?
parently as a sign that the animal had been
operated upon rn that part. The officer ob?
served "that several cattle in the herd were
marked in a precisely similar manner. They
returned in half an hour and found the animal
wtttong about and feeding quietly. I have not
mentioned that it bled very little a* the time
the operation was being performed.
af
The Pr?t* on Impeachment* ?
We give below expressions of leading papers
on th? present status of the impeachment
question. The New York Tunes takes a most
rational view, and while generally the impeach?
ment project ia regarded as dead, it will be
seen, that the Tribune endeavors yet to sustain
hope among the ultraiste by attempting to
cozen leading senators :
[Prom the New York Times, Sep.]
Impeachment has failed. The postpone?
ment of the vote until Saturday is a con?
fession of the fact ; and the declaration, on
behalf of the prosecution, that it will not be
taken even then, unless conviction be certain,
indicates a belief that the whole thing must be
abandoned.
It is said that the Republicans intend to pass
the bill to Admit Arkansas into the Union, and
to bring her senators into the Senate, and when
the vote for conviction is thus strengthened, to
have the case decided. We are unwilling, to
credit such ? report, though it would be haz?
ardous to dismiss it as unfounded. When po?
litical necessity is invoked as the ground of rea?
son for acrioD in such a matter as impeachment,
it is not easy to say where those wno invoke it
will stop.
The Republican senators who have indicated
a purpose to vote for acquittal have done it in
defiance of the most formidable battery cf po?
litical denunciation ever brought to bear against
the personal and official independence and in?
tegrity of men in bigh official positions. They
have been threatened with personal infamy, as
well as political ostracism. The leading organs of j
the Republican party nave exhausted their inge?
nuity in heaping upon them, in advance of their
action, every possible form of of opprobrium aud
obloquy. Their motives have been aspersed,
their characters blackened, and every possible
effort has been made to render them odious
and m?ameos in the public judgment. Yet they
are among the purest and ablest men in the
?nolie service. These are the men who have
ad most experience of public life-who have
done the most to maintain Republican princi?
ples, and whose names are best known to the
people bf tho whole country as the friends and
champions of -constitutional liberty and equal
rights. ThaVthey have stood np against the
tempest of denunciation and abuse which has
been poured so4 pitilessly on their heads, is
another proof of the courage, the self-respect,
and the independence which they bring to the
public service. These qualities are not so com?
mon, in these days, that the country can afford
indifference to the display of them. The insti?
tutions of the country are stronger-its liber?
ties are the more assured-for having such
men holding places of trust and of power in our
public councils.
- The Republican party may have reason to
thank these men for having saved it from self
d ? traction before the contest is over. The
violent ejection of the President, tor political
reasons under thc fonos of impeachment, was
never a Republican measure. It never com?
manded the approval md settled assent of the
Republican party. It was the reckless device
of the Radical Bection ofthat parly, intended
to pnt the patronage of the nation into its
hands, and to give it the absolute and com?
plete control of the Republican sentiment and
policy of the country. It was forced upon the
party bv the unscrupulous audacity of the
Radical leaders, aided by the obstinate and
short-sighted presumption of the President
himself. If it had been carried out it would
have added greaJy to the weight the party
would have been forced to carry in the coming
presidential contest. Republicanism would
have been only another name for Radicalism.
Not- only would the party have been un?
der, the absolute control of the Radi?
cal leaders, but it would have been
pervaded by the intense and intolerant
malignity of the Radical temper. The
spirit of Butler, of Stevens, of Chandler, and
of Wendell Phillips would have ruled their
counsels, dictated the policy, monopolized the
the patronage, and sealed the fate of the Re?
publican party. Everything like.moderation,
everything which savored of regard for consti?
tutional principies, tor the rights of States and
the limitations of power, would have been
trampled under foot. The Jacobinical clubs
and Radical leagues which sit in secret and
proscribe ali moderate men of liberal and con?
servative tendencies, as remorselessly as the
Jacobins proscribed the Moderates of the
French Reign of Ttrror, would have held un
disputed and absolute sway. Such a state of j
things would not strengthen the Republican
party or contribute to its success in the presi?
dential canvass. Nor would any nae which
that party could make of the executive patron?
age oetween now rind November make np
for the damage which the predominance of
such a temper would inflict on the party ai
Ye do not consider the danger of this rash
and reckless impeachment project over. The
men who have it in charge put full faith in "au?
dacity" as the basis and strength of statesman?
ship, and they will leave nothing undone to
push it to consummation. If Messrs. Fes s en
den, Trumbull, Grimes, Sherman, Henderson
and other Republicans, who are as much their
superiors in political experience, sagacity and
wisdom as they are in ability, calmness of
temper and disinterested devotion to the pub
he good, shall succeed in securing its defeat,
they will earn, what they will eventually enjoy,
the gratitude of the Republican party, as well
aa that of the country at large.
{From the New York Tribune, Radical.]
We dr? see little reason for the anxiety ex?
pressed Ly our friends generally, and especial?
ly by our Washington correspondent, in
reference to impeachment We have assurances
that Mr. Trumbull has made a general speech
declining to vote for certain articles, and leav?
ing him free to vote for other articles. Mr.
Sherman has taken the same ground, probably
more explicitly, and yet he will vote to convict
on certain of the charges. Mr. Henderson's
speech only covers the first Teven articles.
The eighth, ninth, tenth and eleventh, which
seem to embody the gravamen of the proceed?
ings against the President, are still open to his
judgment, and he may vote to sustain either
or all of them. We should prefer a decision
on the second and third articles. They seem
to involve the principal at stake in the im?
peachment trial, and a vote of conviction upon
any other points would not be as satis factory
to ns.
The only Republican senators' who have com?
mitted themselves against the articles are
Grimes and Feesenden, and we are not without
hope-* that Mr. Pesseoden may find it his duty
to vote "yea" upon the last three. Bnt even
conceding that these senators should vote
"nay" upon every article of impeachment,
there .still remain half a dozen other gentle?
men, every one of whom may be counted in
favor of the country. As for Mr. Grimes, he
evidently made np his mind before the trial be?
gan. He is one of the unhappy curiosities of
Sie Senate. * * . *
We confine ourselves to-day to the mere narra?
tion of the progress of impeachment. It is not
necessary for us to repeat the arguments we
have made during the last few months. Our
case is closed. We have no new thought to give
the Senate. We regret the adjournment. The
suspense that pervades the country-nay, the
whole civilized world-should be ended. What
the country wants is a verdict, and that speed?
ily. If it is a verdict acquitting Mr. Johnson
we can understand it, andar? prepared to meet
it. If it brings conviction, the sooner we enter
apon the duties of a new administration the
better for the interests of the people.
SINGULAR PHENOMENA_Frisbie, druggist, of
this city, says the San Jose (Gal.) Argus, has
an aquarium containing a large collection of
pretty little gold fishes. Recently the fishes
were temporarily removed into a large, globu?
lar glass jar, filled with water. By accident,
young Rhodes, the druggist's clerk, discover?
ed that by placing his forehead in contact
with the upper portion of the glass globe the
fishes all acted precisely as if they had receiv?
ed a shock from an electric conductor. This
set Bhodes to experimenting. He tried to
startle the fishes by touching the jar at the
same point with bis hand, with DOOKS, with
his chm, face and elbows, all withont effect.
Even thumning smartly upon the jar with his
imnckles tailed to get np a piscatorv excite?
ment, but whenever ha touched the glass with
the top of his forehead the fishes were in?
stantly thrown into violent agitation. It was
found that the phenomenon did not occur
when the forehead was brought in contact
with any part below the centre, or equatorial
portion of the glass globe. Queries-Does this
go to prove that there is a true physical galvan?
ic battery in the top of the human cranium?
Boes it go to prove the polarity of the water
and of the glass jar? Does it furnish a faint
inkling of the source of cerebral excitation
which produces the phenomenon of thought,
memory and muscular motion ? Who can tell ?
FROM WASHINGTON.
LNPL?ENCXNG DO ?RTFUL SENATORS-THE PRESS?
URE OE MEETINGS, PETTI IONS, ARGUMENTS,
PROMISES AND THREATS-THE SITUATION
UNCHANGED.
The Washington correspondent of the Balti?
more Sun writes under date of May 13 :
A continuous rain throughout the day has
caused apparent quiet among the manipula?
tors of the impeachment, but they nave
nevertheless been most industriously and ear?
nestly at work.
The pressure and various kinds of influence
brought to bear upon the remaining doubt?
ful senators is wonderful. Telegrams in
great number are sent hence to various quar?
ters, urging that meetings bc held to demand
the removal of the President, also requesting
petitions tobe telegraphedjby influential Re?
publicans to senators insisrfcg upon their votes
for conviction.
Dispatches come in response, some promis?
ing to comply, others declining to interfere in
the matter, as ic is a subject to be disposed of
upon the the solemn oaths of senators them?
selves, and not by resolutions at town meet?
ings.
A reply of this character is said to have been
made last night by Hon. ?. 0. Ingersoll, mem?
ber of the House from Illinois, when called
upon to sign his name to a remonstrance of
politicians of his State against the action and
proposed vote of Senator Trumbull. How ef?
fective these extraordinary efforts snail be up?
on some of the senators whom it is proposed
to carry by arguments, importunities and
threats, may be problem?tica].
It is certain, however, that no outside pres?
sure of any kind can affect the votes of the
statesmen who have flied their arguments
against impeachment, nor is it believed that
any change can in this way be accomplished as
to the statue and votes of the other half dozen
or more Republican senators named as doubt?
ful.
The extreme Radicals say they will get rid
of the President by some means yet in reserve,
and a Radical senator from a Westegn State ex?
presses it in this wiso : "We'll have that fellow
out yet, even if we have to admit the Southern
senators to vote for conviction." '
Horace Greeley arrived here this morning,
and was at the capital in conversation with
members. Quidnuncs Bay be is here to try to
drive uncertain senators into the impeach
scheme; but other authority says Greeley came
here to visit his family, who have been tempo?
rarily sojourning in this oity for some weeks.
' Upon the whole, the observations of to-day
do not indicate any material change in the
views and claims of parties. The advocates of
impeachment are not quite so confident of the
removal of the President, whilst their oppo?
nents are about as firm now as at any time pre?
vious that the verdict will be acquittal.
SENATOB HENDERSON AND THE IMPEACHMENT
PRESSURE. .
The following telegram was received here
to-day:
Si. Louis, May 18, 1868_Hon. J. B. Hen?
derson: There is intense excitement here.
Meeting called for to- morrow ru gh t. Can your
friends nope that you will vote for the eleventh
article ? If so, all will be well.
E. W. FOX.
To which Senator Henderson replied:
Washington City, May 18,1868.-E. W. Fox,
St Louis: Say to my friends that I am sworn
to do impartial justice according to law and the
evidence, and I will try to do it like an honest
man. J. B. HENDERSON.
GENERAL GRANT TN FAVOR OF A CONVICTION.
The Chicago Republican, of Monday, has thc
following dispatch from Washington, under
date of Sunday :
General Grant, in the presence of your cor?
respondent, to-day said that, from what he
knew, he believed the President intended to
evade conviction by resigning at the last hour.
The Gem eral also said that be became so con?
vinced that this would be done that he bet a
box of cigars with Secretary Stanton, in sup?
port of it, nearly a month ago.
During the entire conversation the General
expressed himselt very strongly in support of
Mr. Johnson's removal, it being his only hope
of having peace in the Southern States; and he
thought it would be dangerous to the best in?
terests of the country to let him remain any
longer at the head of the government. With
Mr. Johnson's removal he would, without
detriment to the public service, make a further
reduction lu the army, and the troops that
were now stationed in many of the Southern
States could be withdrawn and sent to the
plains or mustered ont of service. Having a
man in the presidential chair that would take
care that the laws are faithfully executed, the
rebels in the South would cease committing
murders and driving Union men from their
homes, and loyal men would be again secure.
SIB HENRY DE HOGHTON AND THE CONFEDE?
RATE COTTON LOAN.-The question, "who is
Sir Henry do Hoghton ?" started in this coun?
try, and, strangely enough, taken up by the
English press, is definitely settled by the fol?
lowing card from the gentleman himself. He
intimates, as will be seen, that the list of Eng?
lish Confederate bondholders was not a forgery,
as it haB been pronounced in England. It
would be interesting to have further revela?
tions on this subject from Sir Henry, who,
doubtless, knows a great deal more than he has
yet chosen to tell concerning that unfortunate
cotton loan speculation :
To tte Editor pf the London Herald :
Sm: Some evenings ago a paragraph ap?
peared in the Pall Mall Gazette asking "Who
is Sir Henry de Hoghton ?" cavilling at the
American newspapers for believing in the ex?
istence of such a fictitious personage, and still
more that they should hare credited that ho
had been involved in the Confederate cotton
loan.
What the purport or intention of this article
was remains for the Fall Mall Gazette to ex
?lsin, for I cannot; and can only appeal to you
) let me make it known through your columns
that I do exist, and to stato tbat if I was alone
in my silence with regard to the list of con?
tributors to the Confederate cotton loan, I
have the merit of truth on my side. Also that
if 1 did lose by that loan even the sum attribut?
ed to my name by the Pall Mall Gazette, I at
least was not ashamed of the cause in which I
lost it, nor sought to fall away from my friends
when that cause came to its worst.
AI stood loyally by the Southern people from
rat to last, and I behove there is notan Amer?
ican (be he North or South) who would con?
demn me for adhering throughout to a losing
cause, which I believed, and still believe, to
have been a just one.
I have no desire to make mischief with re?
gard to the list which the Pall Mall Gazette is
pleased to designate as "an impudent forgery;"
but, perhaps, it may some day become known
that Mr. Bigelow and Mr- Seward were not
quite so muon befooled in it as they were sup?
posed to be.
I have the honor to be, sir,
Your obedient servant,

WILD CLOVER.-The Yorkville Enquirer says :
"AlmoBt imperceptibly, and through some un?
known agency, there has sprung up over the
barren old fields in this district, within five
years, a species ot white clover, which prom?
ises something worthy of notice. It is a vigo?
rous and hardy vegetation, thriving well on the
poorest dav ridges, and as tenacious of exis?
tence as the famous wire grass. Cattle and
hogs feed upon it with a decided relish. Its
advent into this district ia a mystery, the so?
lution of which has not, to our minds, been
satisfactorily given. We should not be sur?
prised if, a few years hence, our poorest soils,
clad in this sprightly verdure, did not furnish
grazing for thousands ot cattle, whereas they
are now worthless.

jf?-ANSWER TO MEDICAL INQUIRIES.
MEDICAL DEPABTMENT, B. B. .B. OFFICE, No.
87 MAIDEN LANE, NEW YOEE.-Dear Doctor: We
are compelled to answer your inquiries relative to
the curative properties of SARSAPARILLA AN and
its associates as constituents in our RENOVATING
RESOLVENT in Lung affections, and its wonderful
power in arresting waste and decay of tho Lunge,
bealing Ulcers, loosen ing thc phlegm, and enabling
the patient to expectorate freely the thick sloughing
matter deposited in the air passages and cells of the
Lungs and Bronchi, and at the same time keeping
np tbo general strength of thc patient repairing the
waste with good, sound and healthy material, im?
parting nourishment as weU as purification of the
blood,-through the medium of tho press;-that
hundreds of others dally writing us for information
may know that we have a remedy in the BESOL?
VENT that will arrest tho progress of Consumption,
either of the Lungs, Livor. Kidneys or Bowels.
The RESOLVENT is a compensating remedy; lt com
muni cates its curative powers through the blood,
sweat and urine; it restores functional harmony and
enables each secreting organ to secrete Its proper
constituents. Direct remedies, as Lung Balsams,
Cough Syrups, Pectorals, given to act directly on the
Lungs, as a regular remedy, are hurtful, aa they
augment the functions of the Lungs at the expense
of suspending or interrupting the functions of the
Liver, Kidneys and Skin. If a patient suffering with
a severe cough, with a sense of suffocation or weight
in the chest irritation or soreness in the throat, pain
in the shoulders, difficulty of raising or expectorat?
ing phlegm, dryness of the skin, or If there ls con?
stipation of the bowels, unnatural appetite, great
thirst or if the water discharged deposita substances
like the white of an egg, or brick dust, or thread-like
skeins, or if there is pain in the small of the back,
hips, stomach or bowels, chest, etc,, from a dessert
to a tablespoonful of RESOLVENT half an hour after
each meat and if the cough is troublesome one tea?
spoonful at night will afford immediate ease, and
will soon remove all unpleasant symptoms.
As aids to the Resolvent if pain ia present the
spine should be rubbed with the Beady Belief, and
one to four of Badway's pills (coated) to insure per?
fect digestion and regular evacuations from the
bowels. The nourishing properties of BADWAY'S
RENOVATING RESOLVENT increase the strength
and flesh of the patient We do not claim that this
remedy wUl make new lung?, ne? kidneys, or other
wasted organs, but it will arrest decay, heal ulcers,
and supply the waste that is daily passing off, with
new, sound and healthy material. Dr. Rodway can be
consulted, free of charge, from 12 to 2 P. M., at No.
87 MALDEN LANE.
The public have but a taint idea of the great im?
portance of BADWAY'S BESOLYENT, in the treat?
ment of chronic diseare of the Kidneys and urinary
organs. Sorsaparillian and Parelra Brava, two of its
ingredients, as prepared by Dr. Badway's process
supplies a want that bas ever existed, in repairing
the waste of the body with pure and healthy mate?
rial out of new rich blood, of arresting dissolution
and decay, of restoring functional harmony, of se?
curing strength, and dissolving calculons concre.
tiona, of curing every form of Kidney, Bladder and
Uterine diseases; of stopping all kinds of weakening,
purulent, and irritating discharges; of restoring the
vigor of life, to all, whether Induced by self-abaso,
Impure association, bad habit of system, exposure,
or accident
As the RENOVATING RESOLVENT SABSAPA
RLLLIAN enters immediately into the circulation, it
commences its work ot purification and expulsion ol
acrimonious humors from the blood at once. Skin
Eruptions, Blotches, Pustules, Tetters, Worms and
insects, Black Spots, etc., are removed by a few
doses, and the skin changed to a clear and beautif al
appearance.
This remedy is superior to all preparations of Bu
chu, Cubebs, Juniper, etc, in Diabetes, Catarrh of
the Bladder, Gravel, Brick Dusts, and other morbid
state of the Urine The BENOVATING RESOL?
VENT does not augment the functional secretions of
one organ by suspending the secretions of other?.
Ask always for Dr. RADWAY'S RESOLVENT, or

bottle; or six bottles for $5.

tO- A YOUNG LADY RETURNING TO
her country home, after a sojourn of a few months
in tl e city, was hardly recognized by her friends.
In place of a coarse, rustic, flushed face, she had a
soft ruby con plexion of almost marble smooth?
ness, and instead twenty-three she really appeared
but eighteen. Upon inquiry as to the cause of so
great a chango, she plainly told,them that she used
the CIRCADIAN BALM, and considered lt an in?
valuable a equi ai rion to any lady's toilet. By its use
any Lady or Gentlemen can improve their personal
appearance an hundredfold. It ia simple in ita
combination, as Nature herself is simple, yet onsur

draws from it all ita impurities, kindly healing thr
same, and leaving the surface as Nature Intended lt
should be-clear, soft, smooth and beautiful. Pries
