Grimes and Fessenden had fully decile I upon their cour-e last Frildy. and thot thse ii the proper ring were made fully aware of the situ S'in. Lis c.u.t d the Litherto unexplained con f-let e at the White House that day. lhure is still nmiderat'c confidence that convicticn w'l1 take Ilace cn the second andl elevent'i arti-le, though the president has ha l eighteen houri to welik in, ard all the money the whi·sy ring can furrish and on'.v two muote to buy up out of six Ieyarded lounhtful. Senator Howard i. qrite .itk this m-rring an a postpeoement may be ordered. The inlignotion si. or:; lIepublica s is IS ntole. Itoward's p!:ys'is' says i' wi.l n t he safe for Inm to, ,I:,nie to th ' he rp;til to y. I'.stp,;i enient now regarded proal'ie. ('oei fen e is in ress ,ii, that the eleventh aiti:lr, with the second, will succeed. The presdent's friends assert openly ti mornien.g that they knew Trumbull'a Ipo.it;cn a week ago lIt Sunday, and used this huowledge to operate noon other serators. ther nran will vote for the second, thirdl. eighth and e.evnth articles. Henderaon'slriends declare he will vote for the ievten,:u. 'lhe m:! rity of the l:epubl.cat, are deipondent. Majior ty of senato,rs have reached the Clamber. TI e general 9pinion anmng them is that the vote d,uid be postponed til Satuiday or I )inlay on a,-count et lHowards sickeoss. It is also thought that the plan by whif-h cs~erdayv' defection was secured will he so tar exposed as to strengthen lhe case. On the other hand, grave tears are en t rtaiied of inlluences the president will bring to b,'ar. Wade says positively he will vote on all arti 'les from first to last, as he deems it his duty to di,. ard that when the case is deci-led. it will be quite time enough to consider other questions aw:rh :cnc-ern hini personally. The M,.sontri leitcration in the H-ouse have waited on Senator llenderson, and asked him to resign or withhold his vote on ar'i, les for which he could not vote guilty. lHe agreed to do either according to the specitic character of the requests made. Before the conclusion to adjourn an attempt was made to arracge a pair between Howard and F'essenden. but the latter refused. Herulorson's agreement with his del:'gat-,io is having grent flect in changing the whoe aspecpt of afSirs. Moaire stn, Illinois delegations are try.ng to move 'I nmbull. Face the a'.djornment of t'- Senate there has I cen a very free expres ion of opinisns by sena tors among their friends, and its general chars- ter Is such as to decidedly strengthen impeachment. LDislatches are pouring in upon congressmen from all parts of the country, showing the excite nti'nt to be very great. Movements for indignation meetings are in pro grees in various quarters. Johnson's friends and .fs bolting Itepublian sensaors admit that delay till Saturday will. through the force of public Og leion, secure conviction. So confident are some of the leading members of the House that the defection among Repetblican senators was brought about by collusion with the president, through his friands, that it is toeir in tentin to move for a full Investigation of the aftair as soon as the vote is taken. All parts of the capitol building were crowded an hour earlier than usual this morning. The per tect despondency of last evening had in a nimea sure passed away as the morning reports of yes tidlay's proceedires showed that in fact unly thlee senators had declared against all the art: ch-. and in addition the strong speech of Morton delivered late at night was thought to have itad considerable eftct is neutralizing the action of bolting Itepuliicace. A large force of police men were on hand, anl before the opening of the 'ecnate gallnrves, three were placed in e. hi ai.le arid a nuiitoer at e icll door.

A large ralt of the members of the House were in the ball two hours earlier tihan isual, an I a -omparison of information in possesse n of each son created a very general feeitug of rehlef, and inspired considerable contldence. 1 hie action of the senaterts lpiomineut in the defe tion was dr nounced on all sides. Ilesponses from the country i-gan to cotae to Prnators and reliresenatives somine tinor before roon, and before the adjournment were heIlng re Sc vced ii an uninterrupted sirealii. 'Tiiese, beiti passed around, soon set the minds of all at re-t cincer·ning the feelings of the country. Taking the day thrutgh, telegraph men say there has Leen no great ocasiut, in a long tiuce when the ci nutr\ was so prompt to reso,, and whire tIe sentiments expressed were as strong and so neroly cf the eate , halra. ter. The scere on tle Iloot of the Sons"' waq trll of life and one of great interest. nere was noCt a, tive caucun.g on all saides, and it awn: lecame apparent that the chances tor ,nviction were deemed good by a large part of the sena tois. The ouesti. n of voting. as had beea agreed on, Ir an adiurniment, on account of the severe sickness ofl Mr. Howard, was considered fir some time by the friends of convtitluo.

He received them cordially, ard expressed hi vilews freely. Hie said he could Lot conscientiously vote for some of the artlcles, but that he had the deepest intereet in the sue-es of the Republlcan party: that he had no part or s$mpathy with any movement to break it up or to form another organization outside of it: that lihe thought it hie duty to consult with them, and to take their advice. lI then proposed that they should take a little time to consider the matter, and notify him of their oonclnsaion before the Senate met. He further proposed to pat his resignation in their handa: to telegraph to (iav. Fletoher with a request to appoint a suocessor at onee. aleso promised, ·ac he shoeld leave the 8enate,to go to Missouri and stamp it for the success of the radical teMket thlroughout the eom ln cemlpag . Before the Senate met the dele I hatia se ud npoo thqeeonet containad in tie fo'lowing letter, and presented the same t., Henderson : " WasllasTos, D. C., May 12, l~G. "Hen. J. D. Henderson, .

The request is made because we believe the safety of the loyal people of the United States demands the iimediate removal of And. ew Johnson fro'n the office of president of the United States. Re spectfully," etc. Signed by Representatives Anderson, Pile, Newcomb, Gravelly. MeCturg, Logan and Benja. u.in. Van Horn is absent from the city. After reading this, Henderson promised to do as regrested.and if the vote had been taken to day, he would have voted for the eleventh article, and have retrained from voting on most of the ,twhers. The delegation was greatly pleased with the manner In which Mr. Henderson received them, and with the willingness he exhibited todo as the State delegation thought best. The delegation bad a second meeting this afternoon concerning the matter. The whole Tennessee delegation is waiting on Fowler to nLiht, to present an opinion to him that I.e should refrain from voting entirely, unless he can repri sent what he well knows to be the cont: mint of thle loyal people of his Stoae. The Maine delegation have had considerabh* talk among theumselves regarding the propriety of calling on Fessenden and trying to change his de termination, but it was thought to he useless. The Illinois tepublisan delegation met this aflternoon and talked over matters. They regret Judge TI umbnll'sa course, but conclule that there is no cccaston for them to take action thereupon. ' hey expri as themselves as confident that the tital vote of tl.e Senate will be tIr convi:tioun. It is thought to-night that the first. fourth, tifth, a;xth. ninth and tenth articles will fall. These in c cie tIe charge of relnorng Stanton, the c,on ilracy charges, Emery article, and swinging arouid the circle article. It is also believed th at the second and eleventh, and probably the third, sill zeceite thirty-six or thirty-eight votesa. The dltpositon is strengthening amon, eons. tore to adopt Mr. Williams's motion, and take the v.'le on the eleventh article first.

The polioe, tnerverhn, wttrever any arrests are made In the nrighboltnod, have to take their prisoners to the I red DwItrict lockup, a distance of nearly if not .pite two miles. In our conversation with Mayor Heath we did not ascertain anything definite, ba. yt Id that there still existed some conflict of an tL'.rity between the military and himself which irtvented final action In the matter. Meanwhile tle inhabitants near the ,e Breton Market are the l:ftl ters by this dilfatoriness.

FIrST DISTRItCT CoaRT-J.trei' Hi, re, Mtl, ./ . - Mr. Alfred Bourges, secretary of the Board of A.eistant Aldermen. was tried on the inforplation, tied against him about a month ago,.charging bhln ;ihl turging an order for the deiivery of gooIds, ti t uttering the order. In December last. Mr. R. G. Brower, the deputy coLtroller of the city, made a reqnlsition for a quantity of lumber for the use of the Workhouse. 'I lie order was upon Hassan A I'ooley. In the course of time a bill was paid for $ 4, for the lh ruber, and an order signed by Mr. Brower upon of e John Steward,was appendedto the bill which, with that order appended, was indorseP as ap proved by the chairman of the committee on Work hr,use and prisons, (Mr. Straight of the Assistant I: ard and Aldermen Guache ant Clay, chairmen ot the finance committee. The lumber had been s-ppiied by Messrs. Hassan & Pooley. When thiey came to get an eaccount settled, the Steward 1,:1l was examiled and it was found that their name bhad been erased from the order by the use of as acid so strong that the paper ban been eaten through by it, and the name of Steward was snb slituttd. Accompanying the documents was an euthorization from Steward to T. J. Cuooningham. a youth seventeen years of age. who at the time was employed as a deputy clerk by Mr. McNeil. tte assistant secretary of the Board of Assistant Aldermen, to collect the bill and ansy other moneys due him, the said Steward. Under this authorization the money had been paid to Cunningham, and as soon as the forgery was discovered he was arrested and taken to the oitice of the chief of police. He denied any knowledge of the affair; but being given twenty four hours of liberty, with an admonition to state all he knew about it, when next Interrogated, on the following day, he made statements which led to the arrest and prosecution of Mr. Hourges. His statement was to this effect: That the pa ers were forged by him under the direction of Mr. Bourges : that the name of Steward was floti t;ous, and that he ('unningham) at first denied any knowledge of the affair, in obedience to in stractions previously given to him by Mr. Bourges, and these instruction- his father, Mr. J. B. Can ,irpham, formerly a member of the Board of A.-,stant Aldermen, admonished him to dire atrd. in an interview they had during the twenty-four hours he was on parole. He said that the bill of items was made out by his father at I.w instance. upon figures furnished by Mr. B. urges : thr t Mr. Bourges obliterated the name of tie tirmof Hassan A Pooley ; that he (young 4 rontghamu inserted in the blank the name of Steward : that he forged the name of Mr. Noble, ( hfef warden of the Workhouse. approving the Will : thathe wrote the authority to himself to re c(ive mteoney for Steward, and that Mr. Bourges, eubscribed the name of Steward to that paper. This was the substAnce of his testimony befora lie court yesterday. For the defense two ex ptrts, who had not seen much of his writing. de clared their belief that the signature of Steward to the authorization to receive money, as well as tihe body of the instrnment,wasin the handwriting of youig Cunningham. ln the course of his ex n insation he said that be never saw the requie liou upon Bassan & l'ooley, until Mr. Bourgee hlirdtd it to hi, on the second Monday of Janeo arn last. The defense showed by the books of tIe Itim that he had acknowledged the receipt of tLer t,1ilsition in December. tleirs. J. M. Lapeyre. i;abriel lie Feriet, leo. Pandely and EW-gene Staes were called to the stalnl to testify as to the character of the ac i ned J. ad also as to his mIntelhlgence, in view of tce I trgiing manner in which the forgery had Iecn perpetrated, certain as It was to be discov r ted. aLd to show the improbability of such a iln pilacing his honor and liberty at the mercy of (tnnitgham. All the witnesses testified to Ihe .igh Iharsaclter of the prisoner, who had I ean secretary and treasurer of the Pontchartratn !:ailrosd Conipany. and superintendent of publito ,I hoels in the Third District: that he had di t larged the duties of those offices faithfully, hon otlably and to the sctisfaction ot all parttme con ,: rned, and that be was a man of capacity and good education. TIhe case was argued by District Attorney I ;:rublirg for the State. and Mr. (:astelianos and J:.ige Alexander Walker for the defense. Judge Ho e instructed the fury tio the law ao plitable to the case, and impressed upon them that tl. y should not convict a piarty accused upon the unsuppoi t d statemect of an ac ornpl'ce,and tbhat slthounh evilence as to good ,haracter shonuld Laae bht little weight when proof was positive a;sainst an accused, when it was circumitantial or we, ak, good character should come to the rescue.
