{?uco upon a time (it w an old afc.r j) *
mountain tvaa reported in labor, and a
pr-at multitude of pe.?p!e?sayans, politicians
and filers, old women and darkies?were
ffltbfrcd together to witneaa the awful event.
The uiouutain was enveloped in fog. smoke,
thuade' and lightning, and it^ fearful groans
and rumblings, it whs thought, portended the
birth of some horrible tlerj dragon?perhaps
a l.east with Seven heads and ten horna-r
when, lo and behold! the grand achievement
was onlv ? poor little ridiculous mouse. And
Hu. h i* the upshot of the painfnl labor of a
twelvemonth of the Judiciary Committee of
the House of Representatives looking to the
impeachment ol Andrew Johnson.
The majority report of five of the seven re
tmhlican members of the committee, presented
bv Mr. Boutwell, of MassaihusetU, for im
peachment, involves a theory of "high crimes
and misdemeanors" which, more or leas would
apply to almost every President since the
time or John Quincy Adama. The minority
report of ?he ?wo other republican
m*mb<Ts of the committee, presented
by Mr. Wilson, of Iowa. chairman,
in recommending that the whole subject he^
laid on the table, quashes the indictment o. i
Boutwell. The other minority report Irom the !
two democratic members of the committee
entitles them at lea*t to the hearty thanks of
Mr. Johns..d. The postponement of the subject
to Wednesday ?>f next week betrays the mi^
giviug* ot the impeaehers aa to the pulse ot the
House. Uetore proceeding further they wish
to leel their wav. In the interval to the formal
reaumption of the subject there will probably
b* a fermentation among the republicans
which will simmer down into sour beer or
,-rrate such a volume of ifa? sa to blow op the
bsrrel.

awed iii *11 these late elections; for this thins
of impoachment, we repeat, ?u among the
(load weights thereof which the republican
part/ bad to cat:; The terrible drama of
radical fanaticism Lad here degenerated into a
miserable farce, and the faroe wiU aooa be
ended.
The ralieai programme for '.he sucoenion
btw collapsed. The eleven rebel States, includ
ing Tennessee, reconstructed on the basirf of
negro supremacy will doubtless all bo hurried
up and hurried into Congress in season for the
Presidential election, and they will all be radi
cal States. But tli?y will not bo sufficient to
save the radical faction. On the programme
of universal negro suffrage, and on Mr. Chase's
ultimatum of gold for the bondholders and
national bank rag* for the people, the popular
reaction developed in Ohio and New York will
sweep, next November, the Central States and
the WmI m a fire sweeps over the prairies.
From the signs in the Leavens and the earth
Massachusetts and Vermont will, perhaps, l>e
left as the only remainiug monuments of radi
calism in the mighty North. These two, with
the eleven uegro States of tho South, w'M
probably constitute the opposition to the new
administration and the new Union *party in
power from and after tho 4th of March, 18(59.
General Grant, upon his own broad and
ample Uuion pis .form, will serve fojr the ac
complishment of these great ends; but we
doubt whether even General Grant ou the
radical platform could ride the popular whirl
wind that is brewing ou the all-absorbing
money question. The national debt, our bur
dens of taxation, out budgets of official cor
ruptions, prodigalities, frauds and spoils and
plunder, are now foremost, in the popular mind.
The rebellion, with all it* horrors, the war for
the Union, with all its honors and its heroes, no
longer hold the foreground in the public eye ;
but Ihit mountain of debt, taxes and corrup
tions stands forth in the boldest relief. In its
presence this taroe of impeachment becomes a
mockery, universal negro suffrage a delusion
end Southern negro supremacy an outrage
which will serve to swell the uprising of the
imlignaut North for wlist Kossuth would call
"tho solidarity of the people and their Impre
scriptible righti."

By telegram from Washington we are in
formed that President Johnson will, in hi?
forthcoming message to Gong reus, refer in a
prominent manner to an alleged ill-treaiment
of American citizens at the hands of the u?\
ernmeul of Great itritaiu, bv means of arrests,
imprisonment, trials, convictions and punish
ment for offences committed within the terri
tory of the kingdom. This intelligence refers,
we presume, to the cases of certain Irishmen j
who, having domiciled hew for a fe.v years, !
or obtained their naturalization papers, have
seen fit to organize a conspiracy against the
crown of the Que*n of England and set out for
Europe of their own volition, as Fenians, to
further it* object by force of arms.
We do not believe that President Johnson
will make allusion to any wuch mutter, and '
claw the report a? one of those politi- j
cal canards which are always set afloat
in Washington for parly purpose* just j
before the meeting of Cougres*. Mr. j
Johnson is not. perhaps, very deeply j
read in diplomacy an ? Mrieaoe; he
is not a Bismarck, a Meiternich nor a Napo
leon ; bat he is sufficiently well informed as
Executive ' of the American republic to
know that the uniform course of our govern
ment has been, from the very commencement. ?
a faithful observance of our neutrality law '
towards foreign Powers. Permitting no out- i
aiders to interfere in our home administration. ,
it would ill become us to attempt to meddle, j
even if we could, with their execution of their
home laws.
We refer to this subject just now uii account i
of observing that cert a in political party
leaders in New York thought tH to assemble
a meeting in the Cooper Institute In-t Saturday
for the ostensible purpose of ad\ocating some
sort of government interference in behalf of
certain Fenian convicts held in the jails of
England or Ireland, but more likely to further
certain party ends at the expense of a few un
thinking Irishmen, by seeking to create a fuss
about the "Impeachment of Mr. Seward.''and
stump orator trash ot that description.
The American government cannot tolerate
foreign national faction*. Irishmen who leave
their honest employments here to go filibuster
ing in Ireland or England take their lives
in their hnndp and must bear the con
sequences. If dtiaena of Ihe republic, they
prove themselves unfaithful to their
allegiance by attempting to make war on a
Power with which we are at pesce, and forfeit
all claim to protection by the act ; if subjects
of Queen Victoria, they are simply rebels and
must be treated accordingly. England has
suspended the habeas corpus in Ireland, treason
is punishable with death, and the most learned
judges of Britarn have decided that the Fenian
filibusters from America hsve had ft fair trial.
What more do their friends, real or pre
tended. require? indeed, haviug gone on a
hazardous enterprise, it appears cowardly, and
consequently un-lrtah. to seek to cry off* on a
legal quibble when th? pain is being ex
perienced.
England sympathized largely with Ihe
American rebels lately in arm* against the
Union. The American people have pity for
the wives and children of all Irishmen who
step out from the shelter of the constitution to
do illegal ads, but do not seek to retaliate
on England by encouraging rebellion and
mnrder on her soil. Hirther than this w? have
no sym patby with the condemned Fenian fill
busters, no more than we have with Garibaldi?
who also pleads hi- American "papers"?or
had with I<cper. wlien lie was garroted in
Cuba.

It is supposed thai the impeatlun-ul bill of
Sir. hel?ey will contain a clause which will
remove Mr. Johnson from office during his
trial. We cannot believe that Congress is so
far lost to common s?nse as to pass such ft hill.
If they do so they open the door very wide to
futnre revolution and inaugurate the first seri
ous attaek upon the foundations of our gor
ernment. A Mil of this kind once admitted as

If the CougreM proposed axid planned *>7
Louis Napoleou for the settlement of the Papal
question take place, and if its deliberations
result as we expeot they will result, it will un
questionably be oue of the most important
assemblages whioh hare ever been held since
the commencement of the Christian era. Since
the year 325, when was held the first Council
of Nice?a council at whioh was consummated
the alliance between Church and State, and
oyer whioh the Kmperor Constantine presided?
up to this year of our Lord 1867, we have had
councils and congresses many. The business
which has come before these assemblages bai
not always been of equal importance ; but the
effects, ecclesiastical and secular, which they
bare left behind them xntkle them to be spoken
ot as the great landmarks of the history of the
last eighteen hundred years. The order in
which those councils and congresses bavs fol
lowed each other is not undeserving of notice.
The oongross had no plaoe in history prior to
the Reformation. The council has had no
placo in history since the time of the oelcbratod
Council of Trent When it is remembered
that tae council was an eadlesiastloal assembly,
oomposed of ecclesiastical delegates and con
vened for avowedly ecclesiastical purposes,
and that the congress is a secular assembly,
composed of secular delegates and oonvened
for avowedly secular purposes, U will be sew
bow different have been the relations of
Church and Sttfte during the last three hun
dred to what they were during the previous
fifteen hundred years. During the first or ;
council period the State was subordinate to
the Church ; during the last or congress period
the Church ?has been subordinate to the
State. In the one period the Church was all
dominant and but littla resisted. In the other
period the Church has never been in the as
cendant, and has year by year been losing
what little power she has. We do not mean
that the world haH ceased to have respect for
religion, but that mankind have ceased to be
lieve that their interests, civil and religious,
ate necessarily safe in the hands of clergymen
and priests.
Nothing which has occurred in modern times
so strikingly illustrates the change which has
takeu pliico in the relations between the secu
lar and the sacred in human affairs as the ap
proval gi?en by I'ope Pius IX. to this proposed
Kuropean Congress. The Pope, it i.? well known,
for a time refused to have anything to do with
the Congress. Taking into consideration the
peculiar position of the Pope, and the well
established claims which he believes he has to
tliat position, his refusal to take part in the
Congress waa as natural as it was iust. It will
be the business ot this Congress, meet when it
may. to curtail*If not entirely to destroy, the
temporal pow**r of the S<^ of St. Peter. No
one can be more fully alive to this fact than
the Pope himnclt. If the patrimony of St. Peter
i* us inalienable as are the keys; if his tem
poral as well as bis spiritual power Is derived *
from a lar higher than any human source, the
Pope unquestionably has a right to frown alike
on kings and congresses. How the Pope and
lib adviser* look at this question of the tem
poral power we know not. This, however, we
do know, that in the estimation of nine-tenths
of the thoughtful and intelligent "men of our
time, it is a power which is doomed and the end
of which is at hand. U is not impossible that
tbo Pope and his advisers have made up their
mind* to bow to the force of circumstances
and to yield to the logic of events.
U its at l**ast certain that by con
sentiug to have She difficulties of bis
position submitted to a congress he has
abandoned his high position and taken bis
place as one of the princes of this world.
Since the days of llildebrand and of Nicholas
Hreakspear. who were in the habit of making
erupcrors lick the dust, how are the miarhtv
fallen 1 la olden lime* we should have had
I instead of a congress not a little effective Papal
i thunder and not a lew trembling monarcbs
l Put the times ar*- really changed, and stub
! born facts must be aec?ipted by the See of Rome
J an by the rest of us.
i There is in tru'h but one solution for this
Papal dilemma. The temporal power must
go to the wall; the Pope must abandon his
eur?hly vanities, and, lorgetting his regal gew
gaws. settle down into a quiet and respectable
bishop. Napoletfn may attempt to patch up a
compromise and satisfy the other Catholic
Powers by retaining for th* Pop?- ev?:n yet a
shadow of earthly sovereignty, but nothing can
permanently prevent the absolute overthrow
ot the temporal power. Tbo tide is ebbing.
Nothing cau prevent it. Kven if tb?* shadow
should be preserved for a' little while longer
the revolution must come; and it will be
found at no distant day that Caribaldi and
Maounl, aud tho?c who have acted with them,
have been like Iluas and Wickliflf#, the Alhe
genres and the Lollard*, the precursors of
anoint Reformation.

V ery considerable diffcrt nee of opiniou pre
vails as to the causes which led to Garibaldi's
apparent!/ ignominious defeat If Garibaldi
was defeated by the Pontifical troops alone,
then it is manifest that he had grievously mis
calculated the feelings of the Roman people
and the strength of the forces against which he
had to contend. If Garibaldi was defeated by
the French, or by the Pontificals, aided by the
French, then it Is equally manifest that the
cause which Garibaldi represented has sus
tained no real loss by his defeat, and that
Garibaldi, though he may have been proved to
be a bit of a fanatio, has not, by the events
which have just transpired, been proved to be
? fool- have been put in possession of
document* of the moat reliable character which
show that the latter, not the former, is the
truer representation of the case. Garibaldi,
It is not to be denied, encountered in the Papal
forces more vigorous opposition than he ex
peoted; but it is made clear to us, beyond all
possibility of doubt, that Frenchmen were on
the field as a reserve, that Frenchmen actually
took part in the fight, and that the Chassepot
rifle did the principal part of the mischief in
the ranks of the GaribaldinL Poor Garibaldi!
lie has been defeated. In the circumstances
success was impossible. In the hour of his
misfortune, however, he has the consolation of
knowing that the cause in which he has done
?o much, and for which he has been thanked
so little, will ultimately triumph. In the future
history of united Italy the name of Garibaldi
will be proudly and honorably associated with
the martyrs and heroes of the past. |
"Oil, tk? Dlckena!"
Twenty-five years ago a young English
police reporter made his appearance in the
.United States. He was so highly delighted
with the manners and customs of our people,
their habits so exactly tallied with his own
tastes, that he returned home, and, with
characteristic* English frankness, wrote his
" American Notes'' and ' Martin Chnzzlewit."
Froui that day to this the American people have
boen abusing Mr. Dickens for his candor. Now,
however, he boldly returns to prove to the
world that all he ever said of the Americans
is true. At Boston new and magnificent
material for "American Notes," volume two,
second edition, revised aud enlarged, meets
Mr. Dickens. The wharves were crowded by
an eager multitude to catch the first glimpse
ot the steamer aa she cauie up the bay. The
" Hub" lost its balance and was nearly Bhoved
overboard. The steamer upon which he
arrived was almost swamped as the crowd
rushed on board to see the stateroom in which
Mr. Dickens slept, and the dirty linen was
stripped from the berth as the first sheets of
his second American voyage. We are really
quite envious; but in New York we shall make
an effort to outdo the " Hub." The arrange
ment now is to form a triple cordon around
j our i?lnnd, so that Dlckcuv cannot play his
Boston game on us. The newly elected Mayor
I will command the first line, which will be
j composed of gentlemen. The Common Council
will serve on his staff, and will be mounted
j gold mounted, by order of the taxpayers. The
second line will be under command of that
Mayor who in office has bled the people least.
The third line will be beaded by that Mayor
who has shown the greatest prodigality in
expenditures. In tbi* line will be gathered all
the scum of New York, all the low life, all the
material out of which we manufacture petty
politicians. Running the gauntlet of the very
thin first line, through real personal ability to
j avoid such material as it will be composed of,
j aud escaping even the second line, he must
naturally fall into the hands of the third and
| most powerful cordon. Thus, ahead of Boston,
i we shall take the most talented genius of
j Great Britain prisoner. and ?,?!vr i,m, jn
' triumph to his hotel.
Boston beats us in a few things; but she
shall not beat us in the deification of Dickens.
No matter how inferior a loan's origin or how
low his tastes, provided he tia? superior talent
in developing those tastes, we always elevate
him higher than Boston cau even dream of.
Boston may b?-at us on tie* nigger, hut the daj
is past when she alone can canonixe all the
genius which mnkes in appeai'sncr on onr
(?bores.
It is a natural Irak of the American charge
tor to cut up those who sia-h no ; for this ron
ton the American public hnve felt disposed to
give Mr. Dickens an (rood as ha sends. We.

Terrible Glycerlae Explnlui.
i We are again obliged to record one of those
fearful aooidents resulting from the careless
use of the powerful explosive material known
ss glycerine, this time at South Bergen, N. J.,
where nine men are reported killed and three
severely wounded. There may be othecs
killed or wounded, as the foil particulars have
not yet been obtained.
Railroad contractors and all others should
be much condemned for trusting to irrespon
sible or ignorant persons the use of glycerine;
and they ought really to be held accountable
for such oatastrophies. We too frequently look
for the causes of accidents to the ignoraa!
people among whom they occur. If we made
