The Articles of Impeachment Again
Before the Senate.
Technical Questions Intersposed
by Defendant's Counsel.
Wasnmotox, Jan* 1, 1871
At one o'clock to-dsv legislative business was sus
pended and the Senate resumed tbe consideration of the
article* of lmpeacmnent against William W. Belknap,
Into Seoretary of War.
The accused, with Mr. Carpenter, of bla counsel,
being present, as well aa tt e managers on tbe part of
the House of Representatives, proclamation waa ma le
by tbe Sergeant-at-Arms in ibe usual form, and lbs
Journal of tbo session ot Monday last was read.
The President pro ten. then announced tbe decision
of the 8enate on tbe question of jurisdiction aa fol>
It Is ordered bjr tbo Senate, sitting for tbe trial of
the articles ol impeachment prcierreil by tbe House of
Representatives aguins'. W. tV. Belknap, late Secretary
ol War, that the demurrer ol said Willifim W. Beiknap
to tbe replication of the House of Representa
tives to tbe pie* to tbe Jurisdiction Hied bv said
Belknap be and tbo same hereby la overruled.
And it being ibo opinion ol the senate that said p ea ia
insufficient in law und that saiu articles of impeach
>??>i are sufflcient in law?
* It is therefore further ordered and adjudged that said
plea be and the same is beroby overruled and held for
Mr. Whyt?, ol Maryland, submitted the following:?
Ordered, That W. W. Belknap is borebv ordered to
plead furth?r or answer articles of Impeachment within
ten days irom this date.
Mr. CiiriNTn, ol counsel for tbo accused, said be
regarded tbo order submitted by the Senator from
Maryland as in the naturo of a mundaiuus. This court
gavo counsol two days to prepare lor the argument of a
question which it bad taken tbe court three weeks to
decide. Considering the infallibility of tbe Senate, like
all Judicial tribunals, and that they must know all law,
snd that counsel only knew a little, ho bad no doubt
the court would give counsel a little time for reflection.
The order Just read by tho President pro tern., and
entered upon tbo record as tbo judgment, waa so
unlike any order which would be entered bv
a court of law that be was at a lots to know
what to do. One of bis associates (Mr. Blair) waa
necessarily absent Irom the city nnd tbe other (Judge
Black) was necessarily on his back wnh rheumatism
imd could not get ud, and ho (Mr. Carpenter) desired to
nave time to consult them. He then commented on
tbelord- r overruling tbo plea as to jurisdiction and
aa>d it was a good order lor the Senate but not a good
order for a court, and at tbe proper time be would
claim thai it *'.*08 not valid, not having been coucurrc'i
In by tho constitutional majority ol two-thirds and
therefore it could not hurt tbe defence. Mr. Carpen
ter then argued that the accused could now demur to
Ibe articles of impeachment, although bis plea to the
Jurisdicilon bad been overruled, nud said if it was hlm
rell who was ou trial lie would never open his mouth
to plead again, but would siand upon the law without
any lurtber pleadiugs. aud let the honorablo managers
move for judgment. When they moved lor judgment
he would declare he was ready for it. No
power vested in tbe Senute to order the defenco
to do anything more. The defence had beeu sum
moned here und had pleaded. They could stand on
plcis already filed. Of course, there was no court to
review the flnduixs of this court; its jurisdiction was
tiHal. But tbo defenco bad a right to stop here and an
order ol the Senate ordering them to plead further
could not be valid, and lie protested against It beinir
made. He desired to consult with bU colleagues as to
whether tne.v would ask permission to plead any more
or whether they would slop at the point now reached
Ho claimed mat tho defence, instead ol answering the
articles of impeachment, had the right to demur to
The second time be came In tbe Senate chamber to
plead in this case lie came with a demurrer to tbe ortl
cle* or impeachment in his pocket but preferred to
plead as to Jurisdiction. At the proper timo he would
cal. tbo attcnti?ii of the Senate to the fact thut no
crirao was set forth In any one ol these articles, tho
facts as stated in those articles, If so slated in an in
dictment before a court of law. would result in it beinc
quashed. Tho flrsv question was as to whether tbe art!
cles of impeachment were sulliclcnt und tho next as to
whether they wero true. The mere rhetoric ol tho
articles would not do.
The thing uscit and every element which conctituted
the high crime must be set out as a fact. He contended
that the articles of impeachment would uolstaudtlie
test which tbe court ol law wouid apply to ibem. He
assumed that the Senate would vacate so much of tho
order adopted on Monday as assumes that the article*
ol impeachment are sufficient In law. He (Mr. Car
penter) asaeried, as a lawyer, his honest bollef that not
one ol the articles would stand ihe test pat upon them
by tho court of law, and he waa entitled to bo heard
npon this question before the Senate said they wero
sufficient. It would bo policy for the defendant
to lot the judgment come with the certainty he hail
that he would be acquitted. Th-se Senators who be
lieved tbe Senate bad no jurisdiction to try the accused
mast Toto "not guilty" on tbo Una! judgment.
Ihe defendant would run by stopping here would be
that some Senator wbo thought there was no juris
diction might chango his mind, but ho (Carpenter)
sssumtd that the opinion of Senators would not ha
easily changed. He thought that any Senator ^r Juilee
who bcliovcd bo had not jurisdiction in i
caso, would hold to the opinion that he bad no right
to convict The Senate had decided that tho
trial -nusi go on, but it waa lor his cliont
to sav whether ho would stand upon bis legai righia
or whether he wo-?M go throng tho trial ou the mat
ters ol fact set forth in the articles of impeachment.
Counsel ought to h'-vo reasonably time for solemn
reflection, fhev wanted it an.l asked lor It.
ARumurr or max auk a uird
Manager Loftn aid tbe plea of ibe defendant had been
overruled and tbe articles of Impeacbtncni were held
to be sufficient, lie upprehended that tbe Sonato in
making the order understood ail tbo facte. Tbe mana
gers did not leel called upon to discuss the order until
aonio motion was made to change It, or question raised
bv counsel for the defence that a iwo.thirds vote waa
necoasarv on the question of jurisdiction and
that the Senator* who voted against Jurisdiction
mast vote -'not guilty" on tbo final question. The
managers would at the pro|>er time nave something to
?ay. Tbey would show tnat tbo wbolo practice ol courta
of Impeachment bad beon in contradiction of that argu
meet. The defendant had not put in bis answer to tbe
articles, and all tbe managers could do waa to movo to
proceed to trial. The counsel for the defence now pro
posed another dilatory plea. Here stood tms defendant
accused of high crimes, and by a dilatory plea bad oc
cupied all tho timo ol tbe Court. Now, when the Court
held his plea amounted to naught and the article* of Im
peachment were sufficient, learned counsel wanted the
Court to go back and vacate a part ot its order. It
wr>uld boa most extraordinary procoed;ng in the judg
ment of the manager* for the Court to open tbe pro
ceedings again Instead of compelling tbe defendant to
go to trial.
Mr. Manager McMaha* argued that tbe counsel for
the defence bed invited the ruling of tho Senato in the
very sbape it wa* given and read irom tbe argument of
Mr. Carpenter on the question of jurisdiction to show
that be contended then that tbo Senate must makoauch
ruling in tbo case. It took Jurisdiction.
Mr. Cartenier rose to replv.
Mr. int'RMAM said be would like to know what the
rule of the Senato waa in regard to ducussion. He
did not think there ihould be unlimited discussion by
tbe counsel sad managers upon every order submitted
by a Senator. In hi* judgment It was all wrong
The Chair replied that the discission had been al
lowed under the rule al!ow:ng one hour to each side.
Mr. Carpixtrh said the Honorable Managers bad
argued that this court was not hound by rules ol
practice. He (Carpenter) thought every rule in force in
? criminal court bad been derived Irom experience aud
was binding bore aa much aa in any court. He claimod
that in hta former argument ho had never
tlluded to tbe sufficiency of the article* of impeacb
aienL and be denied that the article* could be deciarod
?ufflcicnt by theSenato in determining tbe question
?f Jurisdiction. He knew boW ibe Senate wa* pressed
?y legislative basinesa, and a short time ago lie sought
to relieve that preasure by moving to bavo tbe trial
continue until September nexi. but the "enate unnni
5?.?/ re,Mod to prant tho motion. Ibe Senate ha I
?aid the trial must go on, but they were all honorable
men, and certainly tber meant to give the counsel a
ctiauce to discuss all questions freely. He
?aked that tho connsel be allowed until Mon
day next to determine what they would do ?
They could by tbat time determine wbetber they
w ouid aak to have the order vacated l>ecause it had uot

Washikotob. Jane l, 1870.
Tbe HoifBe to-day proceedeu to conaider tho bill to
promoto tbe efficiency of iho army, to provide for ita
gradual redaction and to oonsohdate certain ol ita
Blair departments.
Mr. Small*, (rep.) of 8. C., offered an amendment
providing in tbe enliatmont or merging of enlisted men
ioto other organisations no distinction shall bo made
on account of race or color.
Mr. Randall, (detn.) of Pa., objected.
Mr. Mackjey, (Ind.) of & C., moved to amend by
striking ont the section which provides lor tho repeal
ing of the law which requires that (he enlisted men of
certain rcglmentl shall bo colorcd mm.
Mr. O'Brikjc, (Jem.) of Md., objected.
Mr. Mackky said that as Ins amendment was ob
jected to toe practical effect ol Ik < bill would be to dis
continue the enlls'tment of colored men In tbe army
until another war broke oat It was an Indirect way of
getting rid of the oolored troops.
Mr. Hprlbot, (rep.) of 11L, offered a substitute for
tho bill, directing the President to appoint a commis
sion of seven officers ol the army of distinguished ser
vice and knowledge, who shall report to the President
their opinions ol the host method of reorganising
the army, and especially on llio best method ol reor
ganising the stall' department, with a view to economy
and efficiency.
He said tbat ever since the organisation of the army
there bad been those who desirod to cripple Its effi
ciency and to overthrow tho great sentiment ol honor
tor political effect. He thought that II the army roust
be reduced through a mistaken Idea of economy tho
reduotion ought to lall on tbe artillery force, which is
lsrgely disproportionate to the sise of ibe army, but
not on tbe iniantry ?nd cavalry. ? The striking down
ot those historical roelui' nts was the striking down of
tbe sentiment of honor which is so dear to every sol
dlor. He called nttcntion to the lact that one law pro
posed to bo repealed by ibis net was one providing tbat
no person who bad served in thu Confederate service
should be appointed to the army ol tho United States.
Tbat clause had been inserted because a similar act had
been passed by tbe House. In conclusion he quoted
Irom tbe (estimony of General Hancock to the effect
that one ol' tho things which most contributes to tbo
efficiency of the mtliiary,organlsut!on is the perma
nency ol tbe officers.
Mr. Bakmmi, (detri.)ol Ohio, chairman ol the Military
Committee, spoke in advocacy ol tbo bill. He was
tinablo to see id tbe bill anything but what demanded
of men on both sides or the House un honest, just aud
full consideration, in order that tho army might be re
organised; lu order that it might bo made efficient,
that the rcgimonts might bo strengthened and tbat tho
shame aud disgrace which have beeu brought on tbo army
by Its late administration and bead might bo put a stop
to. He disagreed with the gentleman from Illinois
(Mr. Hurlbut) in saying tbat attacks were made on tbe
army lor political purposes. Wben be saw the gentle
tnnn standing hero and attacking a bill which prevents
any promoliou in iho army hereafter, save Irom tbo
lines, ho could not but see in him a gentleman who was
trying to got up a political issue to defeat a bill beforo
a Presidential election. He quoted a resolution or tho
Ohio Republican Convention in 1800 approving tho de
termination of Congress to retrench expenditures in
the government, and urging on tlio national Congress
the necessity of a reduction of tbe army and navy. An
objection had been made by tho gentleman Irom
Illinois that this was going to lot tbo Confederate
soldiers uomc into tbo army. And why notT
Were thoy not allowed on tbe floor of tbo House ?
Wero the people of the North so embittered against tbo
Soutb that they could not forgive tbo Southern men
who desired tocomo back to serve tbe old flag? in
relerehce to tbe clause repealing tbe law providing that
two regiments shall be composed exclusively ol oolored
men. he said it wiped out an insult against every
colorod man in the land.
Mr. Hurlbut's substitute was then rejected?yeas 88,
nays 114.
The bill was then .passed?yeas 120, nays 82.

Sir Alexander Oalt delivered an address In Musle
Ball last night to ? large audionee on tbe commercial
and financial condition ot tbe Dominion. He attribu
ted the present depression to extravagance, govern
mental and personal, and showed that tbe tonnage of
the Dominion has actually fallen off since 1807; while
during tho last four years tbe imi>orts exceeded the ex
ports by $140,030,000. He said Mr. Cart Wright's last
ostlmato of revenao would not be realised, and pointed
out mat tbe public debt bad Been increased $63,000 000
under tho consideration system. He recommended
that no further money be expended on tbe canals, ex
cept it mlzbt be under a joint arrangemont with tbe
Cuited States. He condemned the expenditure of
money on tbe Georgian Bay branch, and on the rail
way between Lake Superior and Fort Garry, and rec
ommended reaching tho Northwest by the way of
Pomhina, making a railway only to lurther, or, It
might be, immediately to precede settlements in tbe
prairie country. He strongly favored a vigorous im
migration policy, lie said protection was not neces
sary or deslrablo in a country of 4.000,000 of people,
but he would impose special duties upon irticles enter
ing from the United States, which bad l>een so illiberal
In their dealings with Canada. Ho pointed out the ad
vantages of refining sugar in Canada.

BOOOKLYN'S bourbon bribery.
The publication in the Hkbai.o or yesterday of the
intention ot United States Biitrlct Attorney A. W.
Tenney to proceed againat certain officials of the In
ternal Revenue Department and ex-A*sistanl District
Attorney William D. Hughe* lor alleged maireaaanco
in office caused considerable exoiteinent U> public cir
cles. The revenuo officers Mid to b? Implicated?
Deputy Collectors Daniel Gillon and Samuel Giberaon?
are widely known, and huvo long been regarded aa
the most emctent rnd trustworthy men In
the Firm Internal Revenue Collection district.
Yesterduy forenoon District Attorney Tenney was early
In bis oHIco und was visited by the uccusod parties aud
also by Silas Boone, cashier of the Hrsl Intornal
Revenue Collection district. Mr. Boone's Interview
was a protracted f ne. As ho was leaving he was ac
costed by a roporter who questioned him aa to whether
ho had ruud tho statements published reflecting on the
parties named above. Mr. Boono's reply was, "There
is nothing in It, gentlemen, hothing at all?at least 1
don't believe there is anything In It." District Attor
ney Tenney, seeing that several members of tho press
were wailing in tho adjoining office. requested his
elerlt to close tho door botween them. Altor walling a
few moments the reporters entered Mr. Tenney s room
only to find that it was vacant Tho District Attorney,
dreading, doubtloss, tho batteries of the inquisitorial
party, hod retreated by a side door leading to the cor
ridor, and thence down stairs and out into the stroet.
The District Attorney, in reply to questions, said
that be "na>l positively taken no part in any man nor
whatever in giving publicity to the articles that had
been published. It would be wrong lor him to liavo
done sn if ho were to prosecuto these cases. the
movement against the officers did not emanate Irom
him or Irom hi* olllce." A lew months ago it was
stated by one of tlio St. Louis meti that much of the
revenue roiibing was done in Brooklyn. This led tlio
writer to make inquiry in official circle*, in tho office of
Collector Kreeland, and the result, published in tho
Hkhalii at the nine, was that so strict bad been the
Inspection of lute years, aud so close was the surveil
lance exorcised at the present time, Hint It would be
utter'y impossible to defraud the Revenue Department
In the manufacture of spirits to any consldotable ex
tent To be suro there wero a few small stills running
hero and there, but these were broken up as soou
as found. They wero unanimous in the exr rosslon of
tho opinion thst no "ring" had or could exist in
Brooklyn while tho officers of the Revenuo Depart
ment were honest and capable, as they had always
proved to be. Tho prescut revolutions come upon this
vsunieu pui Ity and care tor tho public welfaro like a
"thunderbolt irom a clear sky."
when spoken to on the suoject ol Stein's revelations
yesterday, said that some two or three weeks ago he
received a letter irom the department at Washington,
tho content* of which he would not make public, but
it had a beariug on this case. He replied to it that he
should investigate the matter, and that he thought any
overt uction against these officers pendiug his investi
gation would be unjust. He has since been engaged in
investigating the matter as regards Messrs. Glllen and
Giborson. Thus far everything has been lound cor
recu Tho amount alleged to have been paid us a bribe
lo tbrec men was loo much money, ilio Collector
thought, and no Brooklyn distiller could afford to pay
iL He could not say whence the attack against his ,
subordinates proceeded, but he waa free to say that ba !
did not believe anything of it. , ..
Chief Deputy Collector Boono, the cashier or tho
office, said it was hard enough 10 make straight whis
key and psv the tax. It would be impossible, he snid, ,
to run any'length of lime with tho connivance or two
dopuiv assessors. There wore rorty or lifty assistant
assessors at tho time Stein rail tbeso stills and when
be alleges be paid the money. Besides there wero
twelve or fifteen deputy collectors, any ono or whom
had power to make a seizure anywhero that they louud
a wrong. Neither of these officers will bo suspended
during the Investigation. Even should they bo in
dicted and tried, the must sxtreiue measure would ba
suspending them during trial
tub wucr or silkscb.
Mr. William D Hughes, formerly Assistant District
Attorney 111 Mr. Tenney's office, who is at present prac
tising law iu Now York, decline! to say anything what
ever about tho caso until it shall have been brought
properly before the Courts, when ha will bo fully pre
pared to refute tho base accuaation.
one or the accused deputy collectors, said that the first
time Stein's establishment, in Furman street, waa
aeiied by bim was lu the spring ol 18"i "The story
that he bad ever paid mo money," aaid Mr. Glllen, "is
simply ubsurd. 1 am sure it will bo so shown when
ever this matter comes to be invesliguiod. 1 was the
Urst person w ho gavo Information to the government
officers which resulted In exposing the operations or
Sanborn. Hawley and Vanderworken. It was the In
formation supplied by me that led to their Indictment
for conspiracy to defraud tho government. Tho par
ties althu back of this cbargo huvo evidently adopted
this plan lor the purpose or manufacturing public opin
ion and creating a prejudice ocinst mo In advance I
shall he able to show, ir the *.iso is brought lo trial,
that there la not one word ol trutu in it."
said that thoro waa no truth in tho matter; that be
never received one dollar from Stoin, and ba nad
already taken an affidavit to tbat cffect before tho Col
lector. "Had there been any good ground for making
such a charge it would have been brought to tho notice
ol Collector Kreeland in the usual way, and not havo
come irom the Supervisor's office in New * ork lor tna
purpose of craatlug a prcjudlco against us in advance
of tna Grand Jury taking action.' Mr. Glberson said
that two years ago Stein made a similar complaint
against Glllen und himself, and It was reicrred to the
autboritlea at Washington. There was no truth in It,
and thoy were retained in their present positions.

A Hbbald reporter had a conversation yesterday
afternoon with United Htatca Deputy Marshal Do tluo,
who is one or the most exptriouced officisls in tbat
department or the government service in Brooklyn,
touching the merits ol the accusationa made by Chris
tian A. Stein, (be Indicted distiller, ngsiust Messrs
Hugbes, Glllen and Glberson. Tho Deputy Marshal
said that there may be a case against them, but that
all the allegations published could not he truebyuny
possibility. For Instance, it was stated that Stein b id,
during b period extending over two years, paid to hx
Assistant District Attorney Hughes and to Deputy
Collectors Glberson and Glllen, tba sum of fww
weekly bs the price of their silence with regard to tho
existence or the illicit whiskey stills thst ha was
engaged in running at that time. Five hundred dol
lars per week lor two years would amount to about
?fiO.UOO. Mr. Hughes was appointed as Assistant District
Attorney about the spring ol 1873 and he held the offico
not more tbnu twelve months. He came to Brooklyn
from Washington and held no other position here It,
thorelore, ioilows that as Mr. Hughes was not In offioa
more I ban one year he could not have met Stein as
Assistant District Attorney and received that money
Irom mm -weokly ror tbo period or two years, as the
price ol silence." --This wliolc matter, said Deputy
Marshal Da Clue, "romea, in my Judgment, Irom tbo
offico of the Supervisor of Internal Revenue in New
York. You see when Hughes came into offico ba was
full of energy and made a raid upon Sanborn ft Co.
who had been suspected ol defrauding the tailed
States loternal revenue. He finally procured their Ib
dictmeut. la tbo preparation or the caso, in obtaining
the necessary evidence snd witnesses, he waa aided
ct.icily by Deputy Collectors Giborson and Glllen.
In that way ho incurred the enmity of the
people In ' the Supervisors office )u New
York who wero friendly to Sanborn, I believe, and
Hughes, Glllen and Glberson think so. too, and tnat
vlie story, ss published, emanated from that quarter,
from the Irlend* of Mr. Hawley, and that it Pf????*a
from an old grudge agaiusl ttiem. It in a bad looking

wore in operation, and wera seen there by wo kmou.
But. ou the other band, It must bo borno In mind that
Stein is a prisoner. He Is in a very tight bo*, and, or
coui.-o, wants to get out as best be may. Wby, when
Hughes was Asslstaul District Attorney he had ^h??

went into the work with especial enthasiasm. The i
street display of to-day ha. lully proved the success of
tboir endeavor, although the numbers of visiting
