were anxious to know why the meeting
was caiiea. nobody gavo them the In

resolution was adopted, ns follows:
"That the chairman and secretary of this
committee put themselves In correspond

of the State, looking to nu early and ef
fective organization ot the State, nnd re
port tho condition of the organization at
the next meeting ot the committee.''
WHAT ABKaTBOXG TlflNKN.
Hon. Mr. Armstrong, of r.a Salle, n
gentleman wc respect and whose Judge
ment upon political matters we hold In
high esteem, attended tho meeting of the
Democratlc.'State Central committee, held
at Chicago, a few days ago. In conver
sation with a TiuuB reporter, Hon. Mr.
Armstrong expressed the opinion that
tho Democratic party will continue to
move on In the old foolish Democratic
line. Tho Hon. Mr. Armstrong Is n lit
tle Indefinite, and wc hope he Is mistaken.
'I he Democratic parly has had
much experience, and should
have learned wisdom by this
time. Wo believe it has ; and that It will
cueceed even in the face or the great ef
fort! being made by men like Hen Hill
and Jeff Davis to detent It. But, ly tha
way, wo don't agreo with tho Hon. Mr.
Armstrong that tho way the Democratic
party can act not foolishly is to Induce
the Decature convention to nominate
Stewart, of Kendall county, nnd then
nominate him also. Who is Stewart?
We don't know, and we cannot believe
that the hope of Democrutlo success
Is Stewart. In our opinion the Demo
cratic party should pursue a straight-far
war course lu Uie approaching canvass.
It should adopt un honest platform, put
competent and honest men upon that
platform and go into the tight with a
vim. A united opposition Ik desirable,
hut wo would rather be delcated than
have the unity of the opposition result
by the surrender of candidates and plat
form to the pcoplo calling themselves lu
dependents. With thesj people we arc
willing to treat, -but to thein wo arc un'
willing to surrender. Defeat Is prefer
blc to stultification.
THE IMPEACHMENT Of AMEN.
Tho Hon. lieu Hill, and the Hon. Hob
Toombs, and the Hon. Jofl Davis, have
done the Radicals some service and they
know It; and now the Democrats of
Louisiana are getting ready to contrib

sissippi, determined to permit no South

foolishness is to be consumuated because,

Washington, D. C, Feb. 7, TO.
Tho opening of the Corcurnn art gal
lery, some years ago, gave a decided and
wholesome Impetus to the appreciation
and cultivation of tho Hue arts at the na
tional capital. Previous to that time,
congress was n sort of dry nur.-c to n.
pirlng artists, nnd tho cupltol n scml-edu

of the paletto '.could go and study not
Turner ami Van Dvck, It Is true ; but
Trumbull and Vanderlyn, whose paint
ings have adorned the rotunda, lo! this
many a year! Now the Curearan art gal
lery, which Is freo and open to the public
three days in the week, vies with the cap
itol, and successfully, too; for while it
has uo painting on the magnificent caie
of Powell's "Rattle on Lake Ki le," it has
a good many that arc n great deal smaller
and n great deal better too ; and then It
ha?, besides,- the advantage, that politics
never enter Into the consideration, when
u picture is to bo bargained for, which Is
much mora than can be said truthfully of
the national picture gallery ut the capi
tal, where the political standing of nu
artist desirous orjobtalnlng n connoisseur
Is often enquired Into with greater care
than his professional standing as an artJt.
I was led to these reflections because
Just now, art matters form the chief
topic of conversation and discussion
among that better class of society, whose
sole ambition Is not to overdo and out
dress their fellowmcn aud woman at pub
lic halls and receptions. Fortunately,
Washington, though well tilled with
shoddy," has a fair ballast of people
who combine wealth vltli good taste and
good sense ; and very dlflercnt lu their
tenor arc the latter circle as compared
with (ho former. The Hon. (,'corgo linn
croft, tho eminent historian, stands Jat
the head (now whon the inimitable "Carl
Benson" has passed away) of n cottrir. of
most delightful people, without whom
those of us w ho, once in a while, tin get
tired ot receptions, Hermans and "pud
ding lunehes,"1'would, pass but a sorry ex
Istauec. Their homes nre refreshing oa
ses in the Sahara of polities, Intrigue, and
gayety that rules Washington, and one
breathes freer nnd thinks better ot the
world for their presence among iik.

of the most beautiful features in any ot

improvement to the approaches to the

two vases Is about tx thousand dollars
each, which is considerably less than the
cost of tho famous bronze doors, that also
are among the attractions ol the eapitol,
one of which cost one hundred thousand
dollars, and the other llfty-llve thousand.
The entire value of the objects of art in
and about tho eapitol Is between two and
three millions of dollars ; but It should
be remembered that many of these ob

A most interesting place to visit lu
Washington, Just now, Is the so-called
Stercrson collection ot paintings and
statuary, which Is open to the public ev
ery day In tho week except Sunday. Mr.

abroad, previous to his appointment
to Oils country, lie accumu.

private galleries of pictures and statuary
to be found In tho United States. His
paintings, which arc now on exhibition
and offered lor sale, attract largo crowds
dally; nnd connoUmin are here from
Chicago, Roiton, Philadelphia and Now
York with a view to Investment. Nearly
very one of the paintings is by a famous
master, and rarely, Indeed, Is such a gal
axy ol real works of art been collected
together. Among recent purchasers of
paintings from thu collection are
Senator Edmunds oT Vermont, .'udge

tant parts of tlie country expressly to
examine this collection, which east, when
purchased, between rorty nnd llfty thou

required In thu case.
Col. Dyer This U a matter. 1 think,
with which the court has nothing to do.
If the gentlunian de-ires to have any
depositions taken It Is a matter to bu de
cided between the counsel; at thu same
time 1 am perfectly willing to confer w lib
tho gentleman and see upon what points
It Is proposed to question the President,
and it theso questions can be answered,
by deposition, without detriment to the

readily ; but if alter wn see wlut line or

We desire to prepare counter Interro

leave this evening for Washington, so
that they can arrive in time to have the

that the court adjourn now until to
